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.
boomshine, the 6260 plays mp3 in MONO :p while 6230i owners get to listen in high quality STEREO...
Amazing little phone has a tonne of features, everything you need unless your into 3G. Hate 3G phones to big and bulky and weigh your pocket down.
Battery life is good, charge it every 4 to 5 days, and I like messing with camera which is top notch and transferring stuff to the computer, mp3 in it is great too.
A superb handset.
the video recorder is gud but wen u play ur recordiong on ur phone it plays a little bit jumpy but on the pc they play super perfect cn sum1 tell me if my phone is faulty plz

Hey guyz come on 6230i nokia is the best phone now, more comfortable and good for using it everytime so i recommed u all to buy the nokia 6230i :):P....
can anybody tell me which sound best with this phone. i have the hs-3s and they sound awful
hey Pani, before u get all too excited (which is natural for such a great phone like 6230i), just don't forget, 6230i is a, well, basically, a cellphone... not a Smartphone. it's a different playing field. so, 6230i has limited capabilities - which you gotta know and accept, in order to be able to fully appreciate it.
nice one james!
battery life still not upto standards.. but what the hell.. i have a charger in my home,car and office so its never far away from power..
one good feature is tat a lot of series 60 games( not all) work on this fone which dont on the 6230. so tats nice. music is still better then ne SE phone.
keep this one for some time everyone!
How is the battery life - mind very poor, I charged mind for the required 16 hours before using and have recharged since, I am getting about two and half days out of it and talk time is probably in the range of 30min.
I agree totaly about the ascending ringing tone. When it is set to volume 5, it affects the message tone as well, puts it to volume 3 when you receive a message (try it out) Your right about what nokia said as well, which is pathetic. Who has there mobile attached to there ear all day long....?? Nokia need to sort this out, fast! read my comment below yours, a message to nokia, well funny
Had the phone this week and impressed other than the extremely low ringing tone.I have it set on volume level 5 (maximum) and incoming call alert "Ringing", yet it is very very quite and also ascending? I spoke to a Nokia rep yesterday and he advised me that this is a safety feature to prevent damaging your ears, if you had the phone by your ear when it rang!! When would that be, I asked, he said perhaps if you sleep with it on your pillow!! Does anybody really do this?? Any advice please. Can I over ride this? Thanx.
Thanks Phil! nice one
P.S Nokia!! sort the ascending ringing tone out!! it affects our message tone as well!! in future, you should have an option that says 'annoying ascending ringing tone - on or off?'
WOW,camera,radio,mp3,video,e-mail,im's,is there anything i missed?But cud anyone plzz tell me as to how to install additional software on to this piece?I've bought a DK-U2 datacable,but nothing works.Every file that a friend sends via bluetooth is not readable cause the FILE FORMAT is not SUPPORTED!Is it because there's no application installer on the phone?Help me out guyz.Cud anyone plzz tell me as to how i can install other software on to this piece plzzzz!!!!
I was using a 6230 and sold it recently. For me its back to basics. Tried the 6230i for a weeek and its terribly slow even with Ver 3.30 software. Then I tried the 6681 also for a week. This phone will not record some calls in the Received or Missed list and its way too heavy and bulky. Cant carry such a big phone. No doubt the clarity of screen, sound and Signal reception is outstanding in the 6681 than 6680. Believe it I also got to try a K750i. The main problem is screen cant be seen when we are in sunlight and Sony haven't got the signal reception better even in this phone. Poor signal areas it says only Emergency Calls. and the screen is extremely light with all type of profiles and no wall paper. So I decided to buy the 6230 again.
Oh, the K750i can synch with Outlook. Well then, assuming $$ is no object, it's probably a better deal than 6230i. In fact, W800, with it's adapter for 3.5mm headphone, it's a huge selling point, in comparison to 6230i. I'd recommend those 2 phones, based on features, anytime. But for myself, who already owns a great phone like 6230i, i'm not tempted with either of the phones. SE has to work harder to get me to dump my precious 6230i. for now, i have my sights for Nokia 6270 and 6280 :-)
