I have been using this for a week now, and I'm very satisfield to what I've buy. Phone seems to work fine with my Kingston 1gb mmc. Some additional programs would be nice, but it seems to be hard to find anything with good enough graphics.
i bought a 1GB card off e-bay and it works fine i got like 3 albums on there and they all sound sweet as.. i cant get it to play back mp4 video but it says it does on the net any1 help??
I gladly anounce that nokia 6230i does support more than the 512mb card that nokia said it does .. for more infromation on that visit this site it is a must !!
One more finding !
I recorded video with Samsung E730 I recently bought for my syster I found that its quality is MUCH better than 6230i's. Quite frankly I was a bit disappointed. But one should take into account the fact that Samsung IS a manufacturer of digital cameras and video recorders! So, it should not come as a surprise. And you know what? - I did not change my opinion and affection to my 6230i. Strange, isn't it? Nokia masters consumers' brain wiring! I respect that! lol
Anybody out there , can help me please?
whenever i charge my phone using the car charger, when i unhook the car charger even my phone is not fully charge and take it back home to charge my phone , the battery bar would be continuing charging non stop and the message "BATTERY FULL" doens't appear.. This is the second time that has happen to me. Anybody know what's wrong? It only occur whenever i place my phone in the car for charging.
Read the Nokia 6681's review thats here. The 6681 has got certain drawbacks, like dictaphone of 1 min limit,no radio,no infrared,works with RS-MMC Dual Voltage cards only and its priced more than the 6230i.RS-MMC dual voltage cards cost more than normal MMC. It has got only 8MB internal shared memory whereas the 6230i has 32MB.Why will you spend more on a lesser equipped thing. Get 6230i, you won't regret it.
I can only say to you that great decision that you have made. Nokia phones are much more faster than SE. 6230i is no exception
No lags when accesing the MMC even with a 512MB card. I use a 512MB Fujitech and 400MB is already used. I experience no lags at all. Now the mp3. If you have read my previous posts then you should see that I have always appreciated the quality of the mp3 player. The mp3s sound perfect when they are heard through the headset. Same applies to the radio. I don't say that the loudspeaker is not good but you won't get the feel actually. NokiaMia,one of our forum's experts has modified his mobile phone and he can use any headphone in this handset rather than the provided one. So if you want to use a good headphone then better ask NokiaMia. Peace.
Suddenly.. a friend of mine tells me about NOKIA 6681.. and I am confused.
Nokia 6681 or Nokia 6230i?
The main difference is the later has a radio, and it is not a symbian phone and probable stability issues..
I have been using the k750i for 4 mths and is considering re-embracing nokia.
Can someone please advise some of my queries:
1. How is the mp3 sound quality via the nokia earphones?
2. How fast is the software, I've been reading ppl saying big lags experienced in opening phonebooks, going to the main menu and exiting to the main menu?
3. Is there a large lag time when opening the mmc (mp3) folder? (say if the card is 512mb)
4. Does the method of using IMEI numbers to determine nokia's ph place of origin still exist?
Ie: if the 7th & 8th digit is 30 = Korea etc? (or are they all 00 now?)
couple of things maybe to help out.
Nokia state in the handbook that this phone will only support up to 512 meg cards so forget anything higher.latest firmware is 3.46 and seems to have cured a couple of things. As to camera side, quality between phones does seem to vary, but in settings change standard to high and you shouldnt have any probs upto 1024x 768 res.If any 1 having battery probs throw supplied charger away, its not much better than an in car charger, dig out the old nokia charger agp 7x, probs solved.
Armenian's choice is my choice also. My one is also the black and silver combination. its looks great. Happy buying the 6230i. Inform when you get hold of it. Good Luck.
And a final drawback worth mentioning:
I think it's time for Nokia to equip its phones with the feature of assigning personal ringtones to contacts/numbers rather than only groups, sometimes it gets annoying to create a group for a single contact to have a personal tone assigned. Stupid, isn't it? And why not make that option available both with Groups and single Contacts? Is it so difficult?
I think we have most of the queries answered.. now.. which colour would you prefer?
BLACK or the SILVER one?
Firstly, now I see what some people (the last - IRFAN ISMAIL) were mentioning: the quality of picture is not excellent it seems, especially when you view it on the PC or zoomed in in the phone. Is it normal for this phone? Or is there a way to improve the quality when indoor?
Paul, let me disagree with you. I am a moderate user too but the charge lasts 4 days, I mean it is not just in stand-by mode but used moderately. If other features like radio, player, games are used frequently, the time decreases to 3 days, but for only 2 days you have use it really all the time I guess !
Camera pictures look excellent when taken oudoor but when the lighting is poorer (not dark) the quality gets worst I think.
Sound, yes, I agree sound is excellent especially through the headsets, it's just like my Sony stereo system, unbelievable !
Thanks again Paul.. may be that is really the reason why people complain about hangs.. i.e. put incompatible things inside.
Also, as far as the still pictures quality is concerned when they are viewed on PC needs following explanation -
Usually photos itself are shakey. Because it is a camera phone.. you can have shakey hands or moving hands or a jerk.. when you press the click button..So usually on the phone's small screen it might not be clearly seen.
2. If you are used to viewing images from high end cameras.. certainly 1.3MP will appear a bit blurred to your eyes.. i mean.. nothing can compare to the lossless analog photos out of my old but gold nikon. Afterall it is a digital image with sampling.. you have to have a loss.. to minimise the loss.. means have more megapixels.. got it? Image theory you know :D
It is decent phone in medium class of cell phones. The only problem is quality of still images when displayed on pc. I don't know how to overcome this problem?
Firmware is not an issue. Someone long time back in this forum mentioned about firmware 3.40. But I am using 3.30. No bugs as such, no hangs. Some people say they encounter hangups when they see video in their mobile. I think their handsets are defective. I have never encountered such a thing and I have lots of videos and watch them without any problem. One issue about hangs as I mentioned long time back in this forum is when a MMC of more than 512MB is inserted. I personally tested my handset with a 1GB MMC and it really was a pain. Frequent hangups, shutdowns, slow speed etc. So I recommend a 512MB MMC. Any other questions???
Hi Paul.. thanks.
Firmware issues - which is the current firmware in this phone?
After a long time. I see Pinak has a lot of questions to ask.
The battery of a cell phone depends on its usage. If you don't use your phone, just keep it on standby then you have to charge it every fourth day.But if you are a heavy user like calls are made frequently, hear radio often and use the mp3 player all the time then of course you have to charge every two days. My phones battery needs charging every third day as I am a moderate user.
The camera is good keeping in mind that its a camera in a phone and not a phone in a camera. The pictures taken outdoor are really good. Trust me...I take pictures in 640x480 resolution because it reduces the size of files and pictures are taken faster without any loss in quality.
The radio and the mp3 player have STEREO outputs and are very good, especially the mp3 player. The sound is just too good when you hear them through the earphones.
All I have to say is it is really a great handset to use and the prices have also come down now, so its a must buy. Peace.
