nice phone, but having ringing probs, some calls are not always recieved even with full signal.message says the person youre calling is unavailable, strange that 1. Dosent appear to be a network prob.For those of you having battery duration probs throw the supplied charger away and dig out the original type acp-7x. it has a lower charge rate and voltage 3.7v-355ma and as with rechargable batteries lower rate charge = longer duration.Makes a big difference.
No matter what version of Nokia PC Suite I use I CAN'T get the Multimedia Player to open any MP3 files. Whenever I try to open an MP3 file Windows XP reports an error and ask if I would like to send a report. The strange thing is that it opens VIDEO files (MPG, AVI etc.)easily and converts them to 3GP easily.
All I need to do now is find a way to get it to work with AUDIO files. I want to convert MP3 files to AAC files.
Hy guys, i have a N 6230i V 03.30 and I wanna now whitch is the latest software for it, and what are the upgrades it has? THZ a lot!
hi guys.i wonder if anyone has the same problem as i have.i've just bought a 6230i dell phone.thei have to charge the battery each 36-48 hours.is that normal?or i have to chamge the battery?
if u wish to use your phone as an mp3 player, buy 6230i. 3230 sounds is mono and horrible(when using the headset earphones)! but 3230 radio sound is not tt bad.note that 3230 dont have dedicated volume control button.
3230 is series 60 and is able to installed more applications. u can also copy and paste text. but it seems that sms cannot be store on the sim card,only in phone memory.also,3230 dont support animated wallpaper.
if u wish to be able to attach camera flash enhancement, then buy 3230 as i dont think 6230i support it.
3230 cannot support voice recordings longer than a minute and the psiloc extended recorder application doesnt seem to have a version for 3230 yet.
the media player(not music player) in 6230i cant seems to rewind or forward i dont know if future fw update will solve this. also u cant play midi files in music player. but 6230i is the only nokia series 40 i know who support 64 chord polyphonic ringtone(other 6280 etc).
generally if u dont listen to mp3 on your phone at all i think 3230 would be a gd choice if u dont mind its bigger size
Hey guys, i need urgent help cause i need a cell phone as soon as possible.my question is tht wht do you guys think is better, nokia 6230i or the nokia 3230... and both almost have the same price here in my country..
Just as a counterpoint, my 6230i has never frozen during anything - video clip or whatever. (sw ver. 3.30)
I use a 512MB MMC i got at an electronics store, not a Nokia one. I have about 400MB of music on it in 6 playlists, and about 20MB of movies.
5mins is gr8, like you say it enought for music clips, gotta try your one, 2mins an't enought. Thanks 4 the info, b4 I read your posting I didn't even know my 6230i could do what it can. I'll keep trying to find a full version cause I'm greedy & want to put a whole movie in my phone, will advise if I can when I can.
Thanks again m8
so jonh can i buy this phone.for its sound quality.can i trust you all nokia lovers
yeah its true that this phone has got some probs.. but compared to its cost, its a good deal.. the only probs i've faced are
1]when i use a memory card that is NOT a nokia MMC.. when a non-NOKIA MMC is used, anything like a ring tone, wallpaper sms tone.. etc etc.. wont work as it should.. the same file if put in the phone memory OR the MMC provided witht he phone will work PERFECT.. the MMC brand i've tried is NCP... maybe some other brand MMC might work..
while playing a video(and video only, NOT a mp3 or some other file).. the phone jsut hangs in the middle.. the only way out is to switch it off and on.. i have tested this problem with different video files.. have put the videos in the phone memory,nokiaMMC,and non-nokia MMC.. the problem persists in all types memory.. so i guess its a problem with the phone..
the frequency of the problem is not to high. only once in every 10-15 times..
again, the software version i got is 3.25 .. so maybe if i upgrade the software it to the latest(maybe 3.40).. the issue will get taken care of..
as for the rest of the features.. the phone is excellent.. the sound quality is among the best in NOKIA phones(ofcourse the K750i is way beter).. its comparitively Faster than the series 60 phones..
well... decide for urlself john
what'z up nokia 6230i users...
i want to have this phone but my friend discourage me not to buy because, he says that this phone have problem because of its program.It' true or not. somebody can give me an advice.
hello,this phone cannot play .wav file. but u can alway convert it to .amr to play on the phone.
yes, the sound quality is very good. i didnt use the k700i so i cant compare.
one problem is when playing a file in media player(not music player) the light will remain on thruout the playing. i hope they can correct this is future fw update as this will help save some battery power.
my version of imtoo is a demo too but it converts till 5min. tats enuf for music videos. but for longer u may have to purchase it or download it illegally through somewhere!! no offence!
damn the 3250 is come out.. god knows how it compares to the 6230i.......
wheater it play wave file or not and it sound quality is like k700 or not pls help
Read your email dated 27/09/2005 inregards to converting avi to 3gp so as you can watch movies on your phone, it was a great help, converted 2 mins of "Fat Pizza the Movie". I found the "imtoo3gp" software on the net the only problem is that it will only let me convert 2 minutes of movie unless you buy the regerstration. Would you know how I could get a fully working version free?
I read your reviews very carefully over the year and I have read all the other comments about 6230i as well, I have finalized for 6230i upto 95% (It beats all Nokias hands down) inspite of N91s 6681s ... and others..., simply because it packs in the maximum features possible. But the only thing which was not discussed in the complete 1 year and above reviews is -
How does the 6230i perform in terms of its Class 10 GPRS-EDGE as compared to Class 6 GPRS-EDGE of say Nokia 7260. I searched all the internet but not a place where I could find the benchmark of Nokia's EDGE Download performance which is the actual download speed available to a person when he connects to the internet through 6230i. What is the actual download speed available to a user when he downloads say a 5 MB file from the internet.
when u plug in the data cable,if u wish to access phone memory using the nokia pc suite, then when the phone screen says "use phone as data storage device?" u must choose 'reject', so that nokia pc suite can connect to the phone to show 'Nokia 6230i connected via USB', then u can use it to see the phone memory.(C: drive). at least thats how it works for my case.
Go for the best and get the best-Nokia 6230i.
The phone with everything provided. "BEST"
