Hi,i was thinking about buying this phone Nokia 6230...is there anyone experiencing problems with the phone.Does anyone recomment me not buying this phone?
I'm still loving the 6230 despite that there are many new models out there.
My upgrade to Firmware 5.35 has enabled me to use MMC 512Mb without any problems. Better still, i can store my MP3 in any folders and the Music Player can detect it! But duh! the player also plays my Mp3 ringtones...
While playing with my friends's phone... just learnt that the Bluetooth in Motorola e398 and O2 Xphone II does not support File Transfer and Modem connection... feel sorry for the users... that's why the 6230 is still a great phone.
Sorry, Nokia... don't think I'll go for the 6230i just yet. Coz this phone still rocks!
Impossible they have to echo, they are 6230's after all. Who ever i know who has a 6230 i question them on the reception and they tell me that they do hear echo effects of their voice on the phone. Its a common fault with the 6230 and Nokia are very embarresed about it which is why they brought out the 6230i you must work for Nokia my friend.
not a day has gone by, when i have looked into thy phones eye and said my oh my to you phone i will have to say goodbye, for thy has made my, life worth living, i have learnt recieving isnt as good as giving.you have brought out the poet in me and my talent is here for everyone to see, take care my lovelys.
My 6230 as well as my wife's 6230... DOES NOT echo... AT ALL. So does my other friend who uses 6230.
There u have it... 3 units of 6230... zero echo problem.
Downloading mp3's into the phone is simple:
Here it is... take out the MMC card, slot it into a Card Reader, drag mp3 files into it. Put the card back into the phone - and play it!
Another way is by installing PC Suite from NOkia.com to your PC. Manage a connection from your PC to the phone - either by IR, BT or USB cable DKU-2. Search for the phone in Windows Explorer and drag your music there.
Or you can just use IR or BT to transfer the mp3 file into your phone - but can only be done 1 at a time - and must ensure your phone memory is adequate for the 1 file.
My take - just go out a buy a CARD READER... it's cheap, fast and hassle free.
I'm a audiophile too. My 6230 IS my mp3 player too.
Alot of 6230 users know the phone echos but tend to keep quiete about it or just dont want to admit since they have spent £200 on the phone and as the phone does everying else almost perfectly they trick themselves into thinking its the networks fault which is not a logical theory as the echo effect only happens when using the 6230 and on any network. For example i get no self voice echo with E600, D500, 7210,K500I this doesn't happen with any other phone i have used except for some reason i get quite a substancial echo with a 6230 when speaking in calls which is very annoying when your talking as you can imagine.
If you have read what I have typed and you are still willing to purchase a 6230, well then my friend good luck to you but you have been informed.
I love this phone. I got it on contract with Vodafone & had it for about a week then it was stolen (silly me I had no insurance)
Its a good phone to have though & i recommend this to anyone!
I now have a Nokia 6100 :(
compare to other brands..nokia is much more user friendly when it comes to sms texting,compare to the d500,its a cool phone i may say.but il stick to the 6230!nokia handset is much cheaper when it comes to repairs than a samsung unit.i dont know if the d500 is much durable compare to the 6230?well,i do hope so coz its so expensive!
hello,im gonna have this phone soon from sis in the u.s.its a gift for me,im a music lover,so.i just need some advice on how can i download mp3 songs to my 6230 thru my pc?pls anybody here can answer my question.thanks!
with special thank to nokia designers I want to say its very easy to handle your current daywork with it & you look professional by using 6230
Anyone know how I get in to change the alpha tag on my Cingular 6230? Will I need the service programming code? Anyone know what it is for Cingular?
hai! I'm going to buy this phone, but lots of you say that this phone echos.So what I want to know is the provider of the persons where the Nokia 6230 echos. Because it's the provider who brings this problem. I live in the Netherlands and I'm going to use Hi. that's a version of KPN. But if someone here have Hi to and his/her phone echos, please say it because than I'm not going to buy the Nokia 6230! thnx!
This is one of the best phones i ever had, and i had a lot of phones before this. not trusting in nokia much before this made me a true believer and thumbs up to the team involved in creating this phone. thx 4 an excellent phone!!!
great phone...the mp3s sound better than those played by a 6670...too bad its not symbian60..
I own a 6230 since december and until now i'm pleased with it, even if i'm a Sony Ericsson fan. Has a lot of features for a phone announced in 2003:
-vga digital camera 640x480;
-mp3 & video player but the memory card is only 32 mb;
-bluetooth and infrared
Also is nice that it comes with stereo headphones/handsfree and conectivity cable DKU 2 (those are standard)
The weak points of this phone are:
-the battery goes low very quickly - you must recharge it at 2 days if not daily;
-memory card is only 32mb
-camera has a poor resolution
-you can't assign a tone to a contact, but only to a group
-very common phone, almost everybody has it!
