I loved the phone, initially. Now I can't wait to get rid of it.
I have had 3 brand new handsets, straight from the box, the 3rd has beens sent to technicians 3 times, once reprogrammed, once internals replace and last time returned untouched.
The same sms messaging fault each time. In the middle of sending a text message, while using the predictor text, most messages quite long, it just freezes up and shuts down. The keypad isn't responsive and it can take a minute to start up again and what I love about a Nokia is that even if you exit from typing a text, it'll still be there, not with this fault however.
Its all gone, this has happened with every new handset and about every second time I send a text. Very frustrating, to the point where I am now leaving Nokia for the first time in 6 years. Very dissapointed that it hasn't been fixed as everything else with the phone is sweet.
i'd like to know what is the latest s/w available for 6230i. it's really cool phone with lots of stuff in it. only thing is it shut off by it self about every 5 days or sometimes when im playing games... why? do you guys think its a problem with the s/w???please let me know if anyone is having this same problem...
the reason ur pc doesn accept the phone video is tat the video is in.3gp format. you will have to convert it to either .avi or .mpeg file to watch it on the pc. same vice versa when u wanna transfer a video on the pc to the phone. u have to convert it too 3gp format which is the only format accpeted on the 6230i. there are lotta converters out there on the net. u can try downloadin some. i use imtoo3gp converter.
hope this helps..
n the other brothers.. even i have a dust problem with mine. and from time to time i use my vacum cleaner to suck everythin out!!
Yes! i have the same problem too with dust getting under the screen. dont know if it is the case with all the 6230i or only certain handsets....
as for the video RW and FF problem, i guess one of the only ways to get around it for now is to split the 50min file into smaller sections lasting maybe around 10 to 15 minutes. what software can split 3gp files?
Great phone, one of the best but I have one problem with my 6230i: small particles of dust are keep comeing and comeing under the the cover's window. Do any of you have the same problem or my phone is diffrent?
Any help on the following matter would be apperciated.
I've got video's that I've recorded on my 6230i that i want to store on my pc and some on my pc that i would like on my phone.
I've tried blue toothing them but neither the phone nor my pc will accept each others file. So i cant watch them ?
If anyone has any ideas or can help ?

Can anyone explain why only the contacts from my phone memory synchorise into Outlook and not the ones from the Sim card on the Jnokia 6230i? The memory is use selction has been set to Phone and Sim Memory!
Any assistance/ advice would be much appreciated.
can this phone assign a different ringtone for different contact so that we know who is calling simply by listening to the ringtone? 3310 can do that.
The manual says that when streaming videos or audio, it is possible to rewind or forward by using the right or left scroll button. has anyone who has watched streaming video or audio b4 been able to do that?
the menu in media player has a "RW and FF interval" option but it seems like it is there for display only.
i want to buy a 6230i.
- Some one coud post me am example of video capture?
- is it possible to use ff/rw in the multimedia player when watching a mp4 or a video recording?
I have had this fone for a month now and it a good phone however mine has got very slow as i have soo many pictures. So if u r lookin at this dfone den get it but if ya a picture person den der is betta 1s
I have a 6230 and the fast-forward/rewind works by holding down the up/down directions of the joypad. 'Right' is the same as pressing play - press it instead of the central bit if you sometimes press the wrong button and accidentally go on to the next track if paused half way through one, cos the ff/rwd stuff is a bit crap and takes forever (jumps 5seconds at a time). And sometimes causes problems, it'll just skip tracks too easily or I've even had it make the player crash before and need a reset! All just standard mp3s!
I only wish they'd added a "go to " option on 6230i's player (for listening to longer tracks/podcasts) but I like the improvement for the central select part of the joypad. I find it too easy to press the wrong part sometimes. That's just after playing with it in a shop, will be coming up for an upgrade in a month or two but not sure what I'm going for yet.
I was thinking of buying the 6230i but, just wanted to know about the menu selection into the messaages, galery and so on. In the handbook it says that it has 3-D menu. It is glitz ie animated as some of the other brands or just a flat 2-d slection.
it's kinda interesting to know that there are actually people watching a full-length video from a screen that is just a little more than an inch wide... but, nevertheless, having FF/RW in Media Player (and even in Music Player) is actually a good thing. Hopefully, Nokia is listening.
It's a Masterpiece in today mobilephone.
Small in size but big in functions.
Second to none, best in the world.
There is no perfect phone in this world
but 6230i is close to it. Long Live 6230i
It is stupid that media player cannot RW or FF when watching a video clip, esp a long one e.g. 50 minutes.1stly we may not wish to watch from the beginning. 2ndly,imagine u are at 40 min and your phone rings, then u have to start from beginning again as there is no fast forward or goto time function. i hope that this problem can be corrected in future firmware update.
yes the mp3 in 6230i is definitely much better than the 6260. but 6260 can play wav and realmedia file while 6230i cannot. and the stupid FF and RW problem in the 6230i is not present in symbian os phones like the 6260.
