actually i hv a n6230 with v3.15
wer can i gt an upgrade?
and does nokia pc suite work with bluetooth ports?
whats up o_j
this is Ben. i just read yr advice and have decided to go for the 6230i. is it better? Also
could you teach how to encode my videos to high quality dvd type at high quality
You are DEAD WRONG about one thing...you CAN Fast Forward and Rewind MUSIC with the 6230.
First you have to be in the Music Player, then while the song is playing press and hold the 'UP' key to Rewind and hold the 'DOWN' key to FAST FORWARD. I will admit, not many people know about the RWD/FWD feature where MUSIC is concerned.
You are right about one thing though, you can't fast forward videos and the 6230 can't play direct MPEG4 videos but it can play 3GP videos encoded with MPEG4 codec. I don't have a problem with 3GP. I encode my videos at high quality and they are somewhat comparable to DVD quality BUT encoding at high quality takes up a lot of memory!
You may want a bigger screen but when you watch videos encoded at very high quality, it makes you forget about the screen size. Remember the saying 'Size doesn't Matter' (smile).
On the issue of java games, that can be a tricky situation. First of all some games won't work if no memory is left in the phone after installing as some games rely on memory to work, especially games which have a save feature like a Role Playing Game (RPG). Also, some games won't work due to data transfer error...which can be resolved be re-installing the game again. Thirdly, if you already have a game installed and you install that same game WITHOUT deleting the first one that was installed, then the newly installed one won't work. You have to be careful, some games may be the same but have different names, for example, you may install Mario and then install another file called Mario2...in some cases it's could be Maria part 2 and in other cases it could be a 2nd link to Mario part 1. Just bear my tips in mind when installing games.
The camera may be a VGA one but it takes clearer pictures than some megapixel cameras. Just ensure that you have firmware 5.24...start snapping and see the results.
If you really really want to change your phone I wouldn't advise the 3230. First of all it's a Symbian phone aka smart phone aka Series 60 (s60). These phones are usually BIG, HEAVY and SLOW. What makes things worse is that the 3230 is said to be buggy...which isn't necessarily Nokia's fault but a fault on the Symbian Operating System which is not a platform that Nokia created. Nokia gets a licence to use the Symbian OS on these smart phones but in most cases these phones get more complaints than praises. The only advantage with the Symbian phones is that it's an open platform which means you can install a whole lot of software on it. For example, you can install a zoom software which you can use to zoom your photos a lot of times. You can also install softwares which can give you a longer recording time, stuff like that but in the end you may get fed up with the bulkiness, heaviness and slowness. Take my advice, leaving from a 6230 to a 3230 will feel like switching from a Concorde to a Submarine. If you want a very large screen and more video/audio support then check out the Nokia 6300, a brand new 2007 phone which was recently released. GSMArena has done a review on it too, check the specs. and read the review. Hope you found my advice useful. Take care.
Videos CANNOT be Fast Forwarded or Rewinded. Just think of it being a cinema, you have to watch the video from start to finish. The latest firmware is 5.50 but I prefer 5.24 for many reasons.
Maybe your Transcend is a regular MMC and not MMC Plus like mine. Take out the MMC and tell me everything that label says. Also what colour is your MMC's label ?
Y is it im only havng a 978.5?I have v5.24 als0.Do videos can be 4ward or rewind?H0w pls.Wats the latest firmware?
To MUE MUTETI:
If you changed your battery more than once and the same thing keeps happening try changing your charger. use a different charger and see if the results is better.
You are DEAD WRONG about one thing...you CAN Fast Forward >> and Rewind
Tnx oj,im using a 1gb transcend.Great.But the mem says 978.5mb only.Wats urs?21mb is a l0t to0.H0w to duplicate txt msgs?Tel s0me trix b0ut 6230.Tnx

This is a hevy fne!! i love it so much! it has everything i need..wiked!...i advice u of getin dis fne x
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.
