CP, 25 Feb 2010Nokia 6230 is the only best phone from Nokia. I am using it for 6 years by now. No problem at ... moreHow does you have upgraded the firm-ware version of 6230 to v.5.50.
My phone is the 6230, too. Could you help me?
Nokia 6230 is the only best phone from Nokia. I am using it for 6 years by now. No problem at all. I ungraded the firm =ware version to v.5.50. It solves all the problems like Music player doesn't find the files from sub folder etc.,. It will search the music files from anywhere in the phone or in the memory card. You can create sub folders upto 5. Even then it detects the file and added to music player play list.
The another important factor is you can put 2gb memory card and this will work without any problem. I am using a 2gb card for about 2 years after upgrading to 5.50 version.
I am trying to find a 4gb Reduced size memory card to check with this phone.
To listen to the music and FM radio dont use the earphones provided by Nokia.
You get separate Audio-adapter like AD49 or AD45 and you can put any earphone you like. Sony or Pnansonic or Ipod earphones. My suggestion is Sony MDR E808 earphone. You can feel the difference.
I currently have this phn, aside from keypad issues its a gre8t phn. For a phone released a long time ago it still manages to keep up with today. but i wnt advise the tech savy to buy it.realy great phn though. Quite reliable
I'm so glad to still have my 6230. It's been with me for over 6 years (Since 2005) still works like new and everything. I've been through many phones since such as Sony Ericsson Walkman, Cyber-shot phones and even Nokia N95 8GB. They all came and gone but 6230 still has stayed with me. Currently got a SE W995 but i might just put my sim back into the 6230!
This is one of the the best phone nokia has made. this is what phones should be made of theses days, in addition to the high tech feature. I have an E63 now but the 6230 is the best nokia phone Ive had nokia 3360, 6230, 3520, 3310, 5140, 5210, 6682, 3510i, 6120 and now an E63: most cant stand up to the nokia 6230.
I had the most fun with this phone even though I'm now using an E51 with more high tech features.
The E51 is fast but I still believe the Nokia 6230 is the fastest Nokia ever.
i really love this phone..it's very convenient to use and it's really complete!!!
It is a good phone but I have got problem with it. It has got problem on reducing voice.
I have tried without success. Its button alocated aside is functionless.
This is best ever phone I am using last 4 years and I have no problem. This is very compact and very easy to use all the features. Phone has got all the features I required. I have dropped accidently 3-4 times my phone but still working perfect. What else i can expect from this phone. I would like to say...Nokia is great to make this kind of phones.
apollon, 23 Oct 2009if anyone can help me plz...... i want to listen to the music in player mode... but the music ... moreHi friend,
Store your music files in the root directory of your memory card and not in folder. You should be able to play the files from your music player now.
I bought a nokia 6230 and must confess its a great phone.The only problem is that i put a 1GB mmc card but when i put items more than 512 mb other items entering shows question mark.Is it from the card or the phone and also if i try browsing the net with the music player on,the song being played either fastforwards itself and cracks.Please what should i do
This phone is the toughest i have ever had, I bought it in Dec 2004.And had till today.It survived lots of crashes,downfalls,falls in water,rain, bee dismantled numerous times and ended only with lots of scratches.And still works almost like before!The global market needs more phones like this guy:)!
I bought this phone on Dec. 2005, sold it on 2008. This has been the toughest phone I ever had, I dropped it more than 100 times and that little phone was still alive. When I sold it still had its original case with very few scratches, its keypad was still full painted and every one of its features was still working seamlessly. I still have a Nokia (5700 XM) but it isn't even half the tough this 6230 was.
And maybe the 6230 is now an outdated phone with no hi tech features like WLAN, HSDPA, big touchscreen, many MP camera, HD video or a dozen GB internal memory but it surely does its primary job flawlessly which is make and receive calls and messages and it surely trumps many new phones on those departments.
So it doesn't matter how many hi tech features I'm missing if I'm on the need to make a call or send a message bring me a 6230.
