for folks wanting to play video clips on their 6230i here's some info.
The phone will not play an mpeg file. that is a file with .MPG or .MP4 or .MPEG extension. Won't play .AVI or realmedia .RM either.
It will happily play .3GP video clips encoded using the latest mpeg4 video codec.
As for FF/RW... only when playing music, not for video. The K750i does FF/RW for music AND video.
the K750i CAN be synchronised with Outlook, 2000 SR-1 or later, using the sync-station software it comes with.
I still love my 6230i but it's pretty hard to find fault with the K750i.
its a god !!!what a techonolgy its sweet but powerfull and damn da mp3 kickz butt of sony ericsson
6230i or SE K750? Definitely 6230i for me, coz K750 can't be synchronized with Microsoft Outlook. Furthermore, the K750 is more expensive than 6230i.
But if you ask me between 6230i and SE W800? Assuming $$ is no object, i'd go for W800. But once Nokia 6270 or 6280 hits the market, i'll garbish out the W800 coz there's something about Nokia that makes anyone who has a Nokia before, feel 'something' is missing when using other brand of phone...
James, Phil, my phone runs on a 512Mb Apacer RS-MMC (with adapter, of course). So far, other than 3GPP VIDEO files via Media Player making my phone hang once in a while, I don't see any other 'performance' problems.
I use DKU-2 to transfer huge mp3 files via USB. it's not as fast as a "Memory Card" reader, but at least I don't have to turn off the phone.
MEDIAPLAYER having a FF/RR features? That's not true. I can only see Play/Pause/Stop. But the MUSIC PLAYER has "Previous" & "Next" feature for mp3.
I agree with you on the RINGING tone issue: it would have been nice if they made it an option.
I'm using a 512Mb RS-MMC - don't worry, it works just the same. Make sure it's a good quality card, with high reading speed.
Gee, the mp4 format is still a mystery to me. I tried that once but can't get it to work. Could you email to me the file so that i can try it on my 6230i?
I like this phone - it's very easy to use, although the main menu button is a bit fiddly. However, one thing that annoys me is that my sms inbox gets full extremely quickly, ie: when it's got less than 20 messages in it. Also, if I want to transfer a message from my inbox to another folder to avoid deleting it, it says "message memory full" when the folder is empty! Can anyone advise? Am I doing something wrong???
what is the biggest memory card that can work in the 6230i without affecting the phone in anyway.I was told that if i get anything higher than 256 it will affect the phones performance in certain ways. Thanks James, Stockport
Can i install software on nokia 6230i to play
Real format files. Email to me please!
what is the largest mem card the 6230i can take and is the usb port thue usb or does it need an adapter?
MEDIAPLAYER: NokiaMia what is this I hear about the Media Player having a FF (fast forward) & RR (rewind) features but yet it does nothing ?
RINGING: Also, even though you love the ascending ringtone feature, it would have been nice if they made it an option rather than an acceptance. It is said that the ascending feature kicks in once the volume goes to 4 or 5 bars, is this true ? When I'm in an office I set my phone to the lowest ringing level or vibrate only so I can live without the ascending feature. When I'm in public I like it when my phone rings full blast so it can turn an eye or two :-). If only there was a way to disable it. I hope Nokia looks into this and add an option to turn these types of features on or off.
MEMORY: Just to make sure, the phone is able to read Reduced Size MMC (RS-MMC) cards right ?
I recently transferred an 'MP4' video file to my 6230 and the phone refused to play the file. Nokia states that the phone is able to play MP4 files so I don't know why that happened. Have any ideas ? The file was taken from a SE K700.
That's it for now. Take care.
For dave: 6230i...I have this phone for 4-5 months now and is the best I have seen this far...great phone,great features...NOKIA RULZ!!!
hello there guys , can any1 help me in forwarding and rewinding the long movies. although there is an option stating ff/rr in the media player, cos for a phone of that capacity should have that option. thx in advance!!!!
when sending files (even business cards) using Blue Tooth & IR a massage appears saying "data send failure" (or some thing similar meaning). This happens after sucsesful sending of 1-2 files. my firm ware is version 3.25. Pls advise me if anyone knows the answer.
This is a good phone, the mp3 player is has good quality stereo sound can compared to mp3 player, unlike the 3230. and im quite pleased with the midi sound. however, i realise that the music when played in the media player(not music player) cannot rewind nor foward, and the light will remain on thruout the playing. can anyone teach me how to rewind of forward if possible and to turn of the light.my firmware is 3.30 i wonder if 3.40 has solved the problem.
