Thanks alot i'll surely try and get back to you on how it went.
If you do decide to flash your phone I recommend firmware version 5.24, I love it and want no other. However, you can also go with 5.35 or 5.50 if you feel comfortable having the very latest version. AVOID 5.26, I have heard a few complaints and we can't afford to tolerate errors when we expect important calls, especially from that new girl or business opportunity (smile).
YES it's possible to update your firmware to a later version BUT you CAN'T get it done through a WEBSITE link.
You can ONLY update your firmware (this process is also known as 'flashing the phone') via special cables and a special type of electronic box which is expensive for the average consumer.
The best way to get an upgrade done is to take your phone to a Nokia Center, who will do the upgrade for you free of charge if your phone is still under warranty, otherwise they will charge you a small fee. There are also other 3rd parties who will flash your phone for you. The easiest way to locate these type of people is to check your nearest phone repair shop, if they don't flash phones ask them to recommend a company or someone that does.
It is said that if you put the music files in the root directory of the Memory Card the Music Player will find your MP3 files. The root directory is the main area of the Memory Card, that is, do NOT put the music files in any folders that you created on the Memory Card, or any folders that came with the Memory Card...do NOT put the music files in any folders period! This only applies to firmware 4.43 and older. Once you upgrade to 5.24 or later you can put your music files anywhere at all in your phone or the memory card and the Music Player will find it automatically.
Oh yeah... and by the way... i think my camera has a lil problem.. but no worries...
Is it possible to have an update or upgrade on the firmware version on your Nokia6230? If it can be done..could you give me a link to a site that does it? Or only Nokia has the capability of doing so?
here is what i see after i type *#0000#..
what do I do with it now? Everytime I open the Music Player in the Media Menu, it says No Music Files found! I want it to read from the Memory Card and not in the default Music Files folder.. But I can't change it... Help me out? Please...???
What version firmware you have ? Version 5.24 and later looks for MP3 & AAC files from ever corner of the phone so no matter where in the internal memory or memory card you put an MP3 or AAC audio file, the music player WILL find it. You can check your firmware revision by typing *#0000# in stand-by mode, that is, where you see the battery and reception indicator bars.
That black spot you are talking about has me puzzled, I have had 2 different 6230 phones, with 3 different firmwares between the two and not once have I ever seen a dark spot on the upper left side of any photos I took...the only dark thing I see is the small black camera icon at the upper left. Please keep me posted
the phone is jampacked with features.. but i wish there were some way of getting an MP3 player software that can look to a different destination folder other than the default (MUSIC FILES) folder found in the Gallery.. and there is a small dark spot on the upper left side of the pic after i use its camera for pic taking.. is something wrong with that?
It's funny how these Nokia people tell you the problem and didn't offer to fix it for you. They are correct though, dirt can indeed mess up communication between a phone and a cable.
I had somewhat of a similar problem but it wasn't with my headset, it was with my charger. I noticed sometimes the phone would stop charging prematurely...meaning before it the battery was fully charged. Eventually I realised what the problem was. Because I carry my phone in my pocket sometimes lint and other debris in my pocket would get into the charging socket, most times they would block one of the gold contact which the charger needs to touch in order to charge the battery. Sometimes it would get really bad that the charger would slip out a bit because of the clogged socket, I never thought about anything getting into the socket until one day I decided to investigate it. I saw quite a bit of lint in there and then I realised why the resistance whenever I tried to plug in my charger and why the charger wouldn't communicate with the battery properly if it even communicated at all.
Believe it or not, lint/debris has never gotten into my POP-PORT connector socket despite it being so close to the charging socket. However, lint/debris got into my previous phone pop-port connector socket, it was a Nokia 3200. Sometimes whenever I plugged in my CA-42 data cable, the PC wouldn't recognise the phone and when I decided to investigate it I saw lint in one of the holes where the connector plugs into and I believe some lint was stuck across the gold pins where the data cable touchs.
JUDE, in your case it could just be a matter of something being stuck in one or both holes on either end of your pop-port connector, where the headset is supposed to plug into. Examine it closely, use a pin to push down in either hole and see if it touches anything soft. A pin works fine but be careful not to use it too hard because you don't want to scratch up your phone. You can also use to pin and gently scrape each of the gold contacts which your headset touches, all 13 of them. All in all that should solve your problem, if not, try a different headset and if that fails maybe something is going wrong with the gold communication pins. Please let me know the outcome. Good luck.
I'm using a Transcend 1GB MMC. It read and write data at 6MB per second...it has been reliable over the few months I have had it so I have no complaints. It's fast enough for me.
First of all, there's no known software which can enable the 6230 to read .avi or .wma formats, maybe a java midlet will be developed someday to make it possible, who knows ?
Secondly, it's strange how your PC Suite works fine on your Pentium 2 but doesn't on the Pentium 4. Try uninstalling the software from 'Control Panel' - 'Add/Remove Programs'. Uninstall the cable driver first which is listed separately from the PC Suite itself. You normally find it above the PC Suite title. Once you remove the 'Nokia Connectivity Cable Driver' go ahead an unistall 'Nokia PC Suite'. Restart your PC right after you uninstall both programs. When you restart the machine reinstall the Nokia PC Suite and see if everything works fine after that.

5.50 is still the latest firmware as far as I know.
The 6230i is basically the same as the Nokia 6230, just that it enhances many of the features the 6230 has and it has support for themes. I have heard many complaints that the higher resolution runs down the battery quickly.
There's a noticeable lag in it, the 6230 is faster and I have seen many complaints about the ringtones ascending when you set the ring volume to level 4 or 5...meaning it starts off low then gets high.
I have used one before but not long enough to say whether it's really a better buy over the 6230.
You will have to try to get your hands on one and decide for yourself. Nevertheless, Hopefully what I said was enough for you to make your decision.
