I've had this phone for 3 years now but still find it really hard to get a worthy upgrade/ replacement for it! As long as you're not looking for a smartphone and don't need a fancy camera, you'll be more than satisfied with the 6230. I certainly am (unless somebody can convince me otherwise.)
this is phone is wery good! the best!!! lowe nokia!!!!
Right now,im using my nokia 6230,does anyone know if whats the maximum memory of a memory card can the 6230 haldle?pls reply to my mobile number:0921717037

this phone is by far the best nokia ever
I had this phone in the not so distant past (Just over the 2 year mark) and every phone I've had since then, I always compare it to my trusty 6230. Never had any problems with the 6230, and heck, I would still recommend it for people who want a phone that does enough as a phone, but aren't too fussed with all the new bells and whistle (MPx Camera, MP3 Player - even thou this has one, etc etc)
i wonder with the 32 mb,how many trucks can this fon strore plz reply
hi, I have a question about my nokia 6230 with firmware v5.35. When I turn it on, the classic nokia animation with shaking hands doesn`t appear. The phone works very well, but I need to know, can I put this animation when I turn on my phone? or it doesn`t appear in any 6230?
i love this 4n but am too broke to own it.wat a pity
great little phone
to SARAH: The Nokia 6230 ONLY plays MP3 & AAC music files.
to LUKE: sounds like your phone needs flashing. Go to your nearest Nokia Center or check anyone that flash phones.
can someone plz tell me can this phone play mp4 music files? thanks
to ANDREI: You can check your phone version by keying *#0000# in standby mode.
to ERPAS: The 6230 seems to handle any bitrate based on my experience. I have played MP3s with bitrate ranging from 128kbps to 320kbps. The average MP3 file is 128kbps (kbps means 'kilobit per second').
Once the songs plays well in the Music Player or Media Player (Media Player is going to the folder & opening the audio file), I have NEVER had a problem using that MP3 as a ringtone.
You DON'T need to cut down your MP3s for the phone to play them or NOT hang while playing them. The 6230 plays large files well, whether audio or video. Once I had a 12MB MP3 file on my phone and it NEVER FROZE, STAGGERED or refused to play. In fact, the phone NEVER restarted or behaved funny whatsoever. Don't be afraid to put big files on your phone, it can manange them!
Sometimes the phone hangs when trying to play certain audio or video files. Whenever that happens, I suspect that the phone detects an error while playing the file and restarts itself to fix the error OR it's just a glitch in the software. Either way it doesn't bother me.
Other than that, the hanging you experience could be a bad bluetooth connection - Try deleting the paired connection and pair them again...or your phone may have what is known as the 'Bluetooth Bug' - Check your firmware by pressing *#0000# in standby mode, if it's lower than 5.24 then you may have the bug. It is said that v5.24 fixed the bluetooth bug and many other problems too.
Personally, I think 5.24 was the best firmware release so if you don't have it go for it by visiting a Nokia dealer or anybody who flashes cell phones. Don't hesitate to ask me anything.
hi, my phone just comes on, the screen lights up, nothing comes up on the screen. Is this repairable and has anyone else had this problem with this phone?
how can i find out what version of phone i have?
hello. can someone help me please. why does my phone hangs when i transfer mp3s (through bluetooth) from my computer. i shortened the mp3 and it transfered but when im trying to use it as ringtone, my phone went off then on again. what bitrate or hz..etc...should my mp3 be so i can use it. by the, it plays well when i open it, but cant use it as ringtone....
What is the differences between Nokia 6230i and Nokia 6230?
My 6230 is perfect for me. The version on my phone is 5.50. The response is fast , never hang on me and it takes in 1gb card flawlessly. Although the camera is only a VGA - it is fine with me. The loud speaker is really loud but I do not find it that clear.
