hmmm, well 6300 is a Better Upgrade if you are changing from 6230 so best of luck!!
well as you should Know Nokia have Made the Series 40 3rd Edition Platform so the whole INTERFACE has been Overhauled so the Battery and Reception indicator's
But as you Know i have a 6233 with that 3rd Edition interface and Once you get Used to it the Indicator's for Reception,Battery feel Better were they are Placed. im Used to it and i acchewly Think its a Better Place for the Battery indicator's
the Nokia 6230i was the Last Phone with the Reception and Battery indicator's on the sides in the Tradional Nokia Style .they needed to Change it Because Sony Ericsson's Moto's Samsung's are in the Same Place !!
Trust me You will Start Liking the Platform Reception and Battery indicator's in the New 3rd edition Platform !!
786 my friend, where in the world are you located ?
I'm seriously considering the Nokia 6300 and thank you for reminding me of that phone.
I don't think I will give up my 6230 though.
786, the only think I would have liked is if Nokia had stuck to their traditional reception and battery meters, with the strokes from top to bottom.
I don't really like the battery diagram which is mostly found on Sony Ericsson, Samsungs and Motorolas. I noticed that all new Nokia phones have this new battery and reception indicators, part of the series 40 version 3 interface.
786, do you have any idea why Nokia couldn't stick to the original indicators ? I have been searching all over the internet without finding an answer.
YO YO YO - OJ
i think they already made a 6230 clone - that's 6233 and even that cant top 6230 in terms of speed and robostness
BTW im still hunting for a 6230 cant find any i have kind off reserved one !!
Is there anything else anybody would like to add to the Nokia 6230 Classic phone ?
Just to add a few more things to the laundry wishful specs. of a 6230 classic:
According to Wikipedia, the Nokia 6100 was said to be the lightest Nokia phone weighing 76 grams.
It would be nice if Nokia could somehow miraculously shave down the size of my dreamful 6230 classic. Maybe getting it to 70 grams or 75 maximum. That way it would be the most feature-rich and lightest Nokia phone ever!
Also, it would be nice if the Wi-Fi implementation covered verbal communication in addition to data communication. So far the average phone with Wi-Fi only covers data commmunication.
Maybe I'm going overboard but maybe the call records could show up to the last 100 dialled, received and missed calls.
Also, it would be nice if it could be Quad Band making it a stronger international coverage phone.
Finally, something yet to be achieved in any cellular phone...voice recognition (not to be mistaken by voice command). That would be so useful for CONTACT ENTRIES, SMS, EMS, MMS, Internet address entries (HTML & WAP), NOTES and Calendar entries. If voice recognition were available for those 7 areas I mentioned then that would be so helpful...physically challenged people, especially the ones who aren't able to use their hands effectively, would benefit greatly from a feature like this.
Yes people that would be my dream Nokia 6230 classic. In fact, it could be called Nokia 6230 Classic Platinum or Nokia 6230 Classic Diamond.
Nokia if you are listening do you have the magic to pull off my dream phone ? The price tag may 1 year's worth of salary but I don't care, just create it (smile).
Since Nokia is in the classic mood this year (3110 classic / 3109 classic / 6120 classic) maybe they could create a 6230 classic...even though it may sound a bit ironic seeing that the 6230 was meant to be a classic phone. Nevertheless they could add the term 'classic'
to differentiate it from the original.
FIRST and FOREMOST the same exact keypad is a must!!! The 6230's keypad is simply the grestest I have ever come across...GSMArena themselves praise it mightly.
Secondly, seeing that most recent series 40 phone has a 2MP camera (7390 is the only s40 phone with a 3MP) they could probably up the ante by giving the 6230 classic a 4MP or even 5MP (with 5MP, no need for N95).
The display could be VGA instead of QVGA with 24-bit colour...basic computer resolution right there. Internal memory could be 1GB - 2GB along with a memory card slot supporting up to 8GB memory cards (Motorola RaZr2 V8 offers 2GB with no memory card) . Phonebook could accomodate up to 3,000 contacts. 500 text messages, IrDa, Bluetooth, 3G with front camera, Wi-Fi (WLAN). SVGA video recording with the available memory being the only limit. MiniUSB port, Full built in HTML browser (like Symbian phones). The ability to read document files like Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Acess & PDF. 3.5mm audio output jack so that any earphones could be used. TV-Out support. The ability to copy and move files to and from phone memory as well as memory card. A battery with similar standby and talk time as the 6310i (7 hours maximum talk time) or even more if possible.
Now that is what I would call a top of the line classic multimedia phone. Who out there agrees and would like to see a 6230 classic with these features ? Hands up (smile).
As an opinionist from here said, this phone is the base of all advanced phones. Every phone is compared and judged to this!
Nokia went all out with this phone and now they are finding it hard to top this masterpiece.
hi 6230 fans
i sold my 6230 for sony ericsson k750i and i regretted. i couldnt sleep that night because thoughts of that fon was haunting me. i decided to go for the 6230i and it was even more terrible than i thought. ive gone back for by 6230 and i must say it is the best mobile phone in the world in terms of simplicity, speed and user friendliness. it also comes first in the loudness of its speaker. having compared it loudness to the walkman fones isay this is the best. so if you are thinking of selling your 6230, you might consider changing your mind because thoghts of this fone may haunt you for life.
It is even faster than 6230i. Those who would not believe - Java benchmark v1/v2: 6230 - 1983 | 239, 6230i - 1394 | 147.
This device is simply fantastic! I have used mine for long period and I was very satissfied! Afterwards I got k750i and I am so sorry for giving my mobile fiend to my family. Than I got N5140i as my second phone, the new software is fine but I am disappointed with the phone´s speed. I am going to get my 6230 back. I have used totally round 35-40 phones and this one is the best. I have to admit that now the photo quality is not sufficient, but I do not consider it important. The speed of the menu navigation is excellent, calendar awesome, MMC slot although not hot-swappable is handy because the cards got so cheap, only the stand-by time could be better. To sum it up, great phone, most user-firnedly device I have ever held in my hand. BTW it is great feeling to hold it..lol
Greetings to Jamaican, you are right my pal:D
What I normally do is turn the phone off and then back on to delete stubborn files.
how can i delete the file from phone memory,when i want to delete it says that its read only file,the file type is avi, can any one help me plz,............
I have NEVER seen a theme for the Nokia 6230 and don't think it's possible to work either.
The phone will only play some Mp4 files, you just have to try various files and see which works. Basically, only 3GP encoded with MP4 codec will work...100% Mp4 files won't work. Get a program called Allok 3GP Video Converter and you will see what I mean. Do a search on Google for Allok 3GP Video Converter and download it.
5.50 is still the latest according to the sources I have checked.
Trust me.Once you own a 6230 its NOT boring its get a 1GB-512MB
