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
have been using this gadget for some time now and id like to know it this device supports mpeg videos apart from 3gp.also can someone out there tell me if this machine is compatible with a 1 gig MMC card
my first question was wrong.....
i ment, how can i make my own playlists?
i don't wanna listen to all tracks in my phone.....
seems like the perfect phone if you are gonna get a phone is 6300 this is the problem i have with my 6233 the phone book memory only 500 iv already run out of memory on it and now iv switched back to my 6230i becuase it has 1000 im thinking of selling 6233 its just NOT perfect for me Nokia phones are going abit down these days some of them. i wat a 6300 its perfect for me 6233 isnt. for now im using 6230i but i still want a 6230!
Thanks for the compliments in regards to my rhyme.
I haven't gotten another phone yet but I will go with the 6300 seeing that it stores 1,000 contacts. I don't know when I will get it but my aim is to get it when the time is right.
Regardless of multimedia features I pay close attention to the telephony part of a phone because regardless of what a cell phone can do, it's still a phone.
786, there's no way I could leave from 6230's 1,000 capacity phone book to settle with 6233's 500 capacity. No way hosay, that's a big downgrade right there. I don't care if it has bluetooth v2.0, 2MP camera...if the phone book is smaller than the original then it's a DOWNGRADE in my book.
I honestly don't want to give up my 6230 but if I do then the replacement must be superb and let me see day after day why I upgraded to it. Bottomline though, any new phone I get has to have at least a 1,000 capacity phonebook and good telephony features...in other words, call management and a high capacity phone book is the integral part of me purchasing a phone, everything else is secondary.
Damnnn,O-G nice ryhm there...!!!
which phone did you get then Nokia 6233 or 6300 ??
i miss my 6230 soo muchh i wish i never sold it it was the best i ever had and then 6233 came and ruined my life lol!!!!!!! 6230 is the best phone in the World!! The End.others are starting to Bend.6230 has the Trend!!!
I got this phone last summer and it is a very good phone so far. It's got bluetooth, camera,predictive text and many more. I can't say it's bad but can't say it's good either. I know Nokia could do better!
I REMEMBER...when I first saw the Nokia 6230 on air and online.
I REMEMBER...when I first saw the television advertisement, Nokia separated it from all the other phones...they showed a variety of phones one after the other then showed the 6230 between the slogan Nokia - Connecting People...the 6230 was right there with the 'Nokia' above it and the 'Connecting People' part below the phone.
I REMEMBER...when I thought I wouldn't be able to get one because it would be out of my league.
I REMEMBER...when I held one for the first time and felt like I was a beginner to the cell phone world.
I REMEMBER...using it for the first time and felt like I was in a different world.
I REMEMBER...it being a pioneer for most of the multimedia features and still on top today.
I REMEMBER...to always respect it because it has put every other phone to shame and forcing them to play catch up.
I REMEMBER...to take care of it because another phone like this may never grace the world again.
Stop worrying. The 6230 reads a 1GB perfectly...I'm using one in my phone right now. It will also read a 2GB too. Just try it, I'm sure you will see that you were worried over nothing (smile).
The 6230 is "SMARTER" than many phones. I have been fooling around a Palm Treo 650...a so called smart phone and I must say that my Nokia 6230 put the Treo 650 to shame in more ways than one. First of all the specs. are the same in many cases, 65K screen, VGA camera etc. The 6230 camera beats the Palm Treo's camera and somehow the 6230 MP3's playback appears to be louder. The Treo 650 polyhonic ringing is the loudest I have ever heard in a phone, it's extremely loud...BUT the earpiece volume is said to be very low...which makes no sense...based on the loudness of the Treo's ringer you won't miss a call but you won't hear the caller clearly when you answer the phone...that seems more dumb than "smart" to me.
I compared the 6230 camera with the Treo 650's. I used both phones to take a photo of the same object and compared them on a PC. The 6230 wins hands down, smoother and clearer. The Treo 650 has NO nightmode. The 650 is big, bulky and not very smart whereas the 6230 is very small and very smart. The End.
I upgraded from 6230 to N73 Music Edition a week ago. Now I must confess that 6230 is smarter than the so called "smart phone" N73.
N73 lacks a whole bunch of essential things that my 3 years old 6230 has, i.e. timed profiles, auto key lock, repeated alarms, reminders.......the list is even longer.
So my point is STICK TO YOUR 6230 and you won't regret.
