I recently purchased N6230. The features and UI are quite impressive. The processing speed of fone is also nice. The key drawback is the weird display :( only 128*128 pixels.
But as this fone is meant solely for professional use, hence it wont effect its overall value. anyways a nice phone and highly recommended.
Can anyone confirmed that the max MMC storage size supported by N6230 is ONLY 512MB n not 1GB?
N6230 can play MP3 songs directly from the MMC.
I was having this problem initially but when I went back to the Nokia Servicing Centre, I was told to copy these MP3 songs to the root directory.....and it works perfectly. DO NOT create any folder else it won't recognise and definitely won't work. Cheers...
On 6230 what’s the maximum MMC memory Capacity can go. mean upto 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB or 1GB...???
Can the music player in 6230 play MP3 files from the memory card, my 6230 plays the MP3's that are stored on the phone memory only doesnt even recognize the MP3 files on the memory card.
Can somebody let me know if the screen size (not the resolution) of 6230, 6230i, 6610 and 6230 are the same or different.

i just bought this phone last week (graphite)..very nice phone..i sold my E398 (w/c is also a good phone) to my ofcmate just to buy this one..now i can record videos & listen to d fm radio..like d E398, it plays MP3 on stereo..d E398 has a little edge on d loudspeaker but d N6230 is better on d headset..d video is fine..and so is d VGA Camera, even better than my E398..not to mention d speed of this phone..probably d fastest multimedia phone in d market 2day..the MP3 player is more convenient than d E398 bcoz it plays all songs in 1 press of d button..in d E398, u hav to play d song 1 by 1..i always criticize nokia for its bad screen but d features of this phone is too much to ignore..d screen is not bad though but is definitely beaten by models like Samsung E800, E398, K700i..but if u can live with a small, not so bright screen, go for this one!it's worth d money..
plz sum1 tell me if this fone can play aac files and which is better da sony ericsson k700i or this fone??????????
i'm a 6230 user for about a year now... still lovin it. the mp3 sound quality is superb. just bought another unit - this time for my wife. prove that there's no other phone better than this - it's the best out there.
p/s: nokia, if there's anything to improve, it's the "to-do list" interface. the font needs to be smaller. pls sort this out in the latest firmware. if u do it in the 6230i, then i'll buy that one :-)
But Nokia 6230i will cost you more...
Buy a digital camera if you want an imaging device with high mega-pixels.
Hello everybody !!
Don't buy N6230 ... a good reason is that N6230i is going to appear . It already appeared but I didn't see it in stores. N6230i has a bigger screen (208x208), a better camera 1.3 MP ... this is very good and the sound quality is the same ... so .. you better wait less than 2 or 3 weeks and buy N6230i ....
hi Anurag, the sound quality of this phoneis absolutely amazing, you can store the songs on the phone memory or the MMC, there are playlist options, u can repeat a song or repeat ther playlist. but the playlist includes all the sons on the phone. u cannot edit that.
hi,i am a music lover thats why i feel that n6230 scores more then other mobiles, but can anyone tell me how is the mp3 sound quality of the phone & do we have an option to make a playlist of mp3 tracks? plz reply ASAP as i am very keen to buy it.
Finally I have bought a Nokia 6230 and I have never felt regret in having one. I used to have Nokia 6600 but not anymore.In comparison,6230 is better than 6600.The reason I say this is because 6230 has got nearly everything that the Nokia 6600 has.In saying this,I refer to the size of both phones where 6230 is very convenient.Furthermore,some of the features are far more better than the 6600.6230 looks so professional compared to 6600 whilst 6600 is suitable for posers who wants attention by having a big phone.The question to be asked is,why carry a big phone when the smaller ones have nearly the samething inside?OK,6600 has got more function but do you really use it?Features in the 6230 are very practical and you'll most probably use it in your daily life.As a conclusion,go and get a 6230 instead of 6600.You won't feel ashamed carrying a 6230 around and it's style is forever evergreen.Seriously,go for 6230.
