Yes, the 6230 is a loud phone. Some say it's loud as a walkie-talkie.
thanks, Original_Jamaican. I can see that you know a lot of things about this phone. I didn`t finished to talk about my phone. And that is because there is a lot of things in this phone and it is so durable. My first nokia phone and I hope to have more of this excellent manufacturer. I can`t find a better phone to replace my old but still excellent 6230. I remember when I was with a friend (it has a sony w810) and my phone defeated his phone in terms of loud. My phone`s speaker is louder than his w810!!! Maybe not so clear but for teenagers it doesn`t matter that. It matters the volume and my 6230 is louder. Yeahh!!
For a foreigner, your English was excellent. Cheers to you.
First: I want to apologize for my Englsh. I`m foreign (Mexico)
I want to say some things about my best phone (6230).
When I first saw 6230 I always considered a phone that I never be able to buy (like Original Jamaican). And now I have a year and 4 months with it and still an excellent phone.
I remember when I bought this phone so clear (I was considering to buy this phone or a k700i) but I am very pleased with this phone and I`m very sure that I make the right decision.
I remember that I was 15 when I bought this phone (maybe a little immature to have a phnoe like this) but if I reutrn to past I would buy it again.
It was my first phone and I am very sure of that (I had a siemens c65 and a pntech gb310) but it is the best.
I dropped so many times (more than 20) and it still alive.
This phone has so many features every day you learn something new about it. Yesterday I learnt how to make duplicate text messages, as many as the memory permits. I just love this phone!!!
Ok, you have 4.44 which is good enough but NOT the very best. To see the TRUE advantage of Nokia 6230 please update your firmware to 5.24. You will appreciate the enhancements it has to offer...one of the best enhancement is higher quality pictures from the camera. To update it visit your local Nokia Centre or take it to a repair shop. Hope you get through. Take care and all the best.
hi there origional_jamaican
ive check the firmware and it is
GSM P1. 1
To check your firmware simply type *#0000# in standby mode...that is the screen where you see the battery and antenna signal indicators.
Hi u can use a 1gig card depending on the firmware-software which you have preset on your fone im now using a 2gig thnxx to original jamaican who told me about this,so check ure firmware and post back
