Had this phone 4 months. It's a really good phone. Has everything. If you need more buy a pocketpc.. really. Menu speed is faaasst! Supports 2GB MMC card for crying out loud.. tons of MP3zz.. go for it!!
I switched back to 6230 after one day using 6230i - This phone is just superb! It has most of the key features that we love and the new 6230i is not superior in those areas!
- interface is faster than 6230i (new firmware even better!)
- longer battery life
- camera is decent - most people don't intend to take print-quality pix with their phones anyway
- the mp3 player is easier to navigate with directional buttons
Only diff I see is that 6230i has the 1.3mp camera, bigger & brighter screen. So, it depends what are the key features you value. FFor me, the sms speed is unmatched even by the 6230i. the mp3 player is actually easier to use!
hi guys ive been using my phone for 8 monthsnow hwat i can say with this is phone . it is really functional, i really wanted this phone since it was first release in @003 but i got my phone almost at the end of the quater of the year 2004 , its great cause i gotit in a much cheaper price. unlike its first release where price is soaring high. this phone helps me a lot the organizer is good thealarm ckock, Mp3 player is really soundy, i guess the speakek of this is phone is mure louder thn MOTO E 398, but5 MOto has much greater sound quality. the ony this advantage of this phone is the screen which is relally small, but it has a wonderful keypads. 6230i is already outhere guys but i suggest if you are a 6230 user and planning to switch to 6230i chances are you will be dissapointed, because they are al most the same in features and phonts, except for the camera quality, screen qaulity where 6230i is really outstanding. and larger memory and everthing on the specs 0f the 6230 are almost the same,
so for now im planning to get the sony K750i for a change but ill buy it when the price is getting down,but for now ill still kee my great 6230!
i have nokia 6230 & i have probleme with the Operator Logo !!

i m downloading the Operator logos (Blank) but its not saving ?? says 'saving failed'
why so ?
can anyone tell ? anyone knows ?
thanks in advance for your prompt. reply!!!!
actually the 6230i can handle up to 2gb of memory and u can buy the memory cards from mobymemory.co.uk :) get ur facts right
see to be honest, there aint much difference with the 6230i, cameras better and longer recording time, different layout of menus and stuff, but the 6230 has a bigger memory upgrade capacity, upto 1 gig, the 6230i can only handle 528mb so im sticking wit the 6230 so should u all!!
i have had a number of top phones and this nokia 6230 is the best so far i mean i always wanted a phone with blutooth,video,radio and mp3 in one unit and not a bad price and now i have it thanks nokia
rob, i had a word with my engineer who works for nokia in england good mate of mine, he said that u may have to get your software updated and possibly get the phone flashed (factory reset) you will lose everything on the phone so save phone numbers to sim card and take out memory card aswell.
the phone is just perfect. no problems. ive had it two years and it is still going on strong. if i was to get a new phone it would be just another one like it or the updated version.
ive got the phone, and i think it is a great phone to have, because you can listen to your music player whilst playing beach rally or golf or something like that, also i think the design of it is cool.
Thanks Gnic, but the problem wat im facing is dat, i cant play any file with .3gp format downloaded 4m internet on my cell phone. the phone reads this file as unkown format. is this a bug in N6230 V 4.43. How can i play d same.
hi, just wanna check opinion on how is the sound quality compare 6230 compare to 6230i?? do kindly let me know thanks on the comparision??
with the last thing posted bout invalid file format, u might need to change the name of the file ur trying to play eg if its a video wat type if its a windows media it will not work so change the file extension the name to either 3gp the computer wont recognise it but ur phone will
Hi friends... Can any body help me out.. i hv N6230 v 4.43, but i cant play any 3gp video downloaded 4m internet. It reads unkown format.. Is there any application wer i can play this videos..
iam getting this phone someone in my family has it it is fantastic there is nothin
wrong with it the camera is really good quality it is realiable easy to use too
you can record up to 4 minutes of video
store up to 100 songs
One of the best phones that ive ever come across the 6230 has every thing from blue tooth to FM radio except a good design but thats not a problem cause the features of the phone actually compensates for the design
i have had the phone for over 10 months now, it is great, but i still have one question, can i download programs that can prolong video shooting and enhance the image, and if it is possible, where can i find such software, on the net or in Damascus, Syria (middle east)
oh, did anyone tried to compare it to Samsung SGH-E530, what is the differnce, other that the shape of course.
email me if you have answers to my questions
Desidon, if you are still having that problem with your nokia 6230, I had just the same problem last week, are you using your MMC card and running on the max or near to the max of the memory? I cleared out my 128mb mmc card and now it works perfect no more freezing, I think when you fill it up thats what happens. If that does not work then it might be your firmware and you might need to get it flashed to the new version, lmk if the memory card issue works with you thanks
To download your games to this phone, you can either run via wap or else a connection with also pc suite. The site I use is www.getjar.com
Their games are free, so I take advantage but be sure to download the right one when there select your right phone model then youll go to games and be able to download your applications or games, Have fun tryin to do it if you have any problems just email me and I will be willing to help you out.
Ive read some of you people are having bluetooth problems, is it the bluetooth dongle or headset? What I did is download nokia pc suite, install it then go to manage connections and instead of your bluetooth program, i clicked microsoft bluetooth or so, then it works now, everytime i plug in my bluetooth dongle the phone is detected and connected and I send plenty of things, if you guys have trouble shooting just send me a email and I can provide you screen shots of how to do it.
