I just sold off my beloved 6230 (firmware ver 5.35) and bought a 6230i instead. Straight away, i missed the blazing quick responsiveness of the 6230 menu - as the 6230i is noticeably slower than 6230. The navigation key of 6230 is still the best for me, eventhough i sometimes mistakenly press the wrong button. The 6230i nav-button is accurate, but need to lift the finger to press the mid-button.
The only thing that made me going for 6230i is the brighter and clearer screen. But overall, side-by-side, the 6230 still competitive - a looks better too! i miss my 6230 only because the 6230i is a "slow" phone. At least, i can still play around with my wife's 6230. Just need to upgrade her firmware (now it's ver 4.28).
hi, this fone is one of the best nokias for the price. i sell fones as a living and this is the most popular as i am selling them at £60 each. they are brand new unlocked to all networks. i am in the uk but i will post the fone(s) in the post if the buyer wishes. i also do part exchange. i will swap any amount of 6230s for a fone with an equal value. i have only 13 nokia 6230s left so be quick as they are goin like hot cakes. also have samsung d500. same turms aply £80
Pls any one advice how am I download the mp3 true music to 6230. And also if knows any sight pls advice.
Yes the 7610 is also a Smartphone, but after usin the 6230 i have a strong feelin U will feel let down with the 7610..Because the 7610 has a BAD Mono MP3 player, no FM Radio, no IR..It is kind of a show off mobile with little substance..the display is better but only that cant make a 6230 owner happy...I mean the 6230 is a performance mobile, I am sure u are gettin what i mean to say..The perfect Smartphone upgrade to the 6230 would be the 6681..
I bought my 6230 in December 2004 and I'm not so happy now. Today i sent it to repairs because of some errors: SIM card registration failed, Insert SIM card and another thing is that the mmc dissapear from the menu in gallery.
the best of phones uptill now which i had used but as there is also a black spot in the moon this phone also has small screen and above that u kannot fast forward or reverse the video clips if any of my friend dose has a solution on this pls mail on email@example.com thanks be happy stay happy love u all
i love this phone too i have this phone and i want give away for the quids you just stated
i have got what you need for this price, this phone is the bomb its user friendly with alot of features on it
By the way...NOKIA always says that ...the talk time is like...3-4 hours ...that's pure bs. I can get max 2 hours. And i think that when somebody is gettting a cell phone...is getting it to talk, not to take pic or to play mp3's.
Anyways,I had a bunch on NOKIA's in Erope too,it's...not what they say about it.
Once again, if u want a phone that u can talk for 7-8 hours...that's Philips XEnium 605 or any kind of Philips Xenium ( not something else from Philips )..
well...neat phone...lots of applications...but when I use it with my handsfree stereo( made for this phone )..the battery runs out in few hours---without the radio on. Also if u're playin radio and try to make a voice dialing the phone freeze and u need to turn it off. I use it with Cingular in USA now but...I just got me a Philips XEnium 650 off e-bay...I'll be really really happy to forget about any Nokia made ever :)) for real
i have tried to connect my new 6230 with my PC, TOO SLOWLY, REALY TOO SLOWLY, i already had a T610 and it's irda work fine, also,(6230) it's so slow that it's impossible to send or receive any file from other mobile, can you help me please
nice to know that you feel the 6230 as much as i do. alrite, i will take a cue from you and get a smart phone. Just that such phones are still pretty expensive where i am . Like i said earlier, i just got a LG U8120 and i am still regretting. The phone is simply nonsense ! Nothing works on it !!!!!!!! I have never been a ''flip phone fan''... this is my first ever flip phone and i am really regretting it ! 6680....Hmmmm..... But i am thinking of going for a 7610 .... i saw it with a friend of mine and it looks pretty kool.... larger screen, quality pictures... is it also a smart phone?
i have had this phone since july 2004, its got some brilliant features mp3 player etc, only problem is the photo quality isnt as good and the videos arent really clear. I had a nokia 3650 before and i think the camera on that was better.Whats the upgrade from a nokia 6230 anyway cus im about due for 1?

Yes the 6230 is a Great mobile..I still have it[ Bought it in May 2004]..It still is close to my heart..& i agree with the Express on Cover thing u said..If i have the same feelings..
But of late i have tried usin the Smartphones from Nokia..the first was the Nokia 3230 & i Loved it though it had a lot of bugs & kept hangin a bit..Then i traded it after 3 weeks[ Because after usin the MP3 on the 6230..this felt like generations behind] & bought a new 6680 & believe me this is a Class Act just like the 6230 but with better perfection[ Great Camera & very decent Video Quality] & since it is a Smartphone..it can use applications such as the SmartMovie player which is just TOO GOOD..I mean DVD kind of Video Quality on the Mobile...
So try usin a Smart phone..because i thing it is the Generation of the Smartphones now...
anytime i think i am getting bored with it, i just remove the express-on covers and get a new different colour and i fall in love with it over and over again ! I keep loving it by the minute !
This is simply the best nokia phone in the market !!!!!!11 everything is simply perfect on it ! The video, the design, the Mp3 function.... the memory card slot... it is simply the bomb ! I recommned this phone to anyone. I have read some few complaints about the 6230 crashing, well, i have had mine since July 2004 and it has not given me any of such problem. I recelntly got a LG8120 cos i wanted to have a feel of the new ''3G thing''... i am regretting this already ! I still love my nokia 6230 anytime, anyday ! Although, i have had it since last year, i am still the envy of all my friends. I am able to install loadsss of stuffs and games into it and this kinda amazes them ! Nokia 6230 for life !
