It's a great phone, except the screen resolution. The screen resolution bugs me, especially the menu, but I do'nt regret my decision of buying the Nokia 6230 because the rest of the options which are available are awesome.
If I use MMC256 to store Music will it be lengthen the time Mp3 loads ??? help
If you use Memory Card to store your MP3 files, put them in the root directory, not in a folder.
Wired handsfree also functions as antenna when you are playing the radio.
The thing I don't feel like comfortable with N6230 is its thickness & weight. It bulkies my pocket which makes me feel quite uneasy to sit and walk on with. The N6100 seems perfect to me when it comes to this. Its builtin echoed ringtones on the other hand does not sound as fascinating as the N6100 (could be something to do with its speakers). Generally, the N6230 seems very useful to me in the "last resort" where its features ie. multimedias, videos, voice recording functions etc. can be utilised on the average specailly the "unexpecteds" - moments we can't afford to miss . As for the cost, yes -quite worth the money on the average.
nokia 6230 rulz! lol u compare n6239 with se k700 lol! se k700 sux! better than n 6230? lol cheaper ! yes but nokia rocks! mp3 movil tv, radio video bluetooth and the best size .. :) i love it
I have a heavy user of my nokia 6230. I just bought a 128 Megabytes MMC yesterday to store more mp3. Loading songs was very slow, but not a problem. The problem is that I want to change default music folder for (Menu) -> (Multimedia) -> (Play music) so use my MMC card instead of the "Music folder" on the builtin phone memory. Can you guys tell me how? Because with out it, I have to play manually next song after song ends.
I also want to hear radio without the wired headset, either with speaker or my bluetooth headset. I can do both but only if wireheadset is connected to phone.
It would be nice that the guys the develop the GUI software for this software include these features in a new release.
Had 6230 for almost 9-10months... The 6230 is still rocks! great features like MP3,Radio, VGA cameo, Infra, EDGE... but just not a Symbian 70, MP Cameo and bigger screen resol.. But its still much better than some newer models which in terms of appearences,performance and size..its much smaller and lighter.Using the PC suite to transfer is still upbeat and excellent and still lacking in some options.
6230 still affordable to buy one. Best for people who are needs full features in a compact size and its the 6230.. LOVE IT!
Yes, u can copy the MP3s directly nto the MMC by using the Nokia PC suite and using the phone browser in it to copy the content directly into any forlder you wish to.
Is there any way I can move mp3s straight to my memory card without having to use the phone's memory first?
it's an amazing one,perfect options MP3,FM RADIO,SMALL ONE,the only problem is that it is having a small display128*128,which is bad comparing to n6600
This is the best phone of its type. but if u use series 60 u will dislike it 4 sure. i switched on it previously i was using 7650 Nokia. there are many features which r not available in 6230 like autospeakerphone senser, autolight senser, unlimited phone#/addresses/notes/ under 1 name, no limit of name already exist. screen size too small. no group renaming, no tones as per contact. the memory size is enought but no need for that much memorry in that phone 7650s memory was 4kb but was full filling every need i still miss 7650 will try to buy it again infact its camera quality is low and memory is low but still prefer 7650 over 6230
the recording length can be up to 4 minutes ! u have to have enough space on the shared memory and not on the mmc card. set the recording folder to the shared memory and tape away :)
Ive had the 6310i for the last 3 yrs. Decided it was time for a change & decided to get the 6230. The only thing i'm complaining about is the battery life. The old phone would last about 5 days (phones on 24/7), this one lasts about 42hrs & has hardly been used. I let it completely 'die' & give it a full charge, 2 1/2 hrs. Is this normal ?
Marvin, the length of the video recording is only 15 seconds. but the quality isn't that good.
I started using this phone about a week ago. a good choice i must say. the outlook design is very classy (suitable for professionals) compared to the other competitors(u know which one i'm talking about)..the screen size is ok to me as i don't need a 29" screen size. all in all, a perfect choice for ppl who are simply elegant and very organised.
what is the length of video recording? can i use mp3 files as sms or message tones
