First of all, you CANNOT get a firmware update using the internet...unless you are going to use a computer to download the firmware and then take it to a repair shop or someone to install the file on the phone for you.
I don't know if what I'm about to say will work on your phone but I somehow miraculously fixed a 3310 with a speaker problem just like yours. First I did a reset, turned off the phone, took out the battery, squeeze the tip of the speaker and then knocked the phone, the speaker part, in the palm of my hand. When I turned it on the speaker was working just like new again, as loud as it was before and it hasn't stopped since...that was about 3 months ago.
The ONLY thing is that because the Nokia 3310 is made of rubber I was able to squeeze it...but your speaker is made from hard plastic material so I guess you can try everything I did EXCEPT the squeezing part. Good luck and I really hope you get your sound back.
I purchased a 1GB late last year, November 23rd to be exact and it has been working fine up to now...NO corruption, NO glitches, NO slow downs, NO freezes, NO crashes...so YES I would say it works fine with the original 6230.
786, tell me what you honestly think about the 6233, I have been giving thought to acquiring one as a second phone...is it worth the upgrade ? Other than the 500 contacts limit, are you satisfied with the features and performance ?
i am in a big problem. can anyone be kind enough to help me out? my nokia 6230 speaker stopped working suddenly. and please let me know where to get an firmware update on the internet?
hello again i need to know if 6230 can read a 1GB MMC with no problems because i have a 1GB MMC for my 6230i and people are saying that 6230i only holds up to 512MB and i have used the 1GB MMC in 6230i for 2 months and its got currupt becuase 6230i can only hold up to 512MB and 6230 can run with 1GB with no problems is it true?????
regards 786 thanks in advance
Firmware 5.24 fixed many bluetooth problems that the earlier firmwares had. Upgrade to 5.24 or later. Your options are 5.24, 5.26, 5.35 and 5.50. Personally I prefer 5.24 for a number of reasons.
Jamaican,cn i ask u dis?D0es 6230i,wth i,cn handle a 1 or 2gb mmc?S0ri but i just wnt to ask.Have u use already 6230i?Cn it handle a 1or2gb mmc?Reply pls.Nid ur help.Do themes cn be use if they are in the mmc?Wats the latest frmware?Tnx.
This phone has so many features that you stumble across new things every now and again.
A few tips that you probably won't find in the manual.
If a folder name is too long you can see the entire folder name by highlighting the folder and pressing the pound key also known as number sign key (#).
While playing a video clip that same number sign key mutes and unmutes the audio. This may prove useful if you quickly need a moment of silence without stopping the movie.
Once you connect the Nokia 6230 to a PC, double clicking a Java file (.jar) will easily install that file to the phone, whether it's a game or application. It will first prompt you asking if you would like to install the application to the phone, just say YES. This is by far the easiest and quickest way to install java apps to the Nokia 6230 and I don't see this method possible with other brands of phones. This is exclusive for the Nokia 6230.
While playing an audio file in the Music Player, pressing and holding the 'up' navigation key will REWIND the track and holding the 'down' key will FAST FORWARD the track. Many phones with Music Players CAN'T rewind and fast forward.
There's so much to love about the 6230, it's definately one of the GREATEST multimedia phones of all time !!!
You CANNOT increase the Nokia 6230's internal memory and you CANNOT install games on the memory card. Games are automatically installed in the phone's memory.
Sorry to hear about your bluetooth problems. I had some problems with my bluetooth at one point in time, which seemed to be hardware related more than software. I eventually got another unit and no problems with the new unit.
In your case though your bluetooth problems may be software related more than hardware. Do a factory reset if you haven't already done so. You can also take out the battery, MMC and SIM card and leave them out of the phone for a day. You could also take out the battery and hold the power button down for 30 secs. or more...this is said to reset the software, I don't know how true that is. If none of the above works then upgrade your firmware. What version firmware do you have at the moment ?
TQ, but what is the extra memory card for? Can we download game there or may be we some other program.
how do i increase shared memory. I need to download more games, can I use memory card to download and play game. I have tried a few time but fail. Pls advice. TQ
when i get a higher version of firmware.. will my bluetooth capabilities improve? coz everytime I like to send a 3 MB or higher file to another phone via bluetooth.. my phone shuts down and fails the whole transferring operation.. Any tips on this area Original_jamaican?
I hate it here in the Philippines.. there's nowhere you can trust to flash your phone. Any advise?
AARONBOY are two different people...
Sorry for causing confusion..
We're two different people...
I'm AARONBOY.. the one with Firmware 4.43.. The other Aaron must have gotten you confused..
Somebody once quoted a Nokia Rep. saying that a 2GB MMC will cause the phone to EXPLODE. I don't think that would really happen. With the new firmware releases I think a 2GB MMC should work fine enough. Maybe a higher capacity would cause an explosion...but who knows, maybe Nokia may yet release more firmwares to accomodate 4GB MMC when they become standard.
You can create a tracklist using Nokia Audio Manager in the Nokia PC Suite software. However, depending on the version of Nokia PC Suite it may be called 'Transfer Music'.
My advice is to try a 2GB MMC, if it doesn't work, if the phone doesn't recognise it or if the phone recognises it but slows down the entire phone then return it and get back your money.
You CANNOT increase shared memory on ANY phone. The most you can do is delete stuff to make room for other things.
