hey, i just bought one yesterday...i think it's very cool, great videos, nice sounds, the display is very clear...only the battery is a bit lower than i expected from this phone...i can recommend for everyone..
I had SE before (k700i), and it was a bit slower, like SE-s in general
Well NokiaMia. I think we have covered everything there is to cover. Just waiting for the phone to reach my hands next month. I'm sure I will find out a few things you haven't and I will be sure to post them proudly. Take care until.
thankx a million my friend!!!!!!
i too was fiidlin with the same thing but never suceeded. way to go bro
Man you have done the unthinkable!! Hats off to you brother and thanks a lot for the discovery Einstein. You rock. But one thing which I am not liking is the songs in the playlist are not shown in a folder in the Gallery. They are shown as individual files and they really looks messed up to me. But thats not a problem cause I don't access the music files from the gallery directly. Anyways Thanks A Lot Pal.
Yup, 1 excellent remark on Nokia: durability. I've dropped my phones so many times, and it's still working beautifully. The battery, for my usage, could threotically last > than 2days - with the phone turned on 24hrs a day (without BT headphone usage, i only use BT or IR to synch with my Outlook). An interesting bit is: I was travelling the other day, listening to mp3 for almost 8hrs, and still have 3-4 bars available. That, for me, is very good. The truth, I'm not such a good reference to battery life as I charge my phone on daily basis. See, I have a desktop charger at home, the Music Stand DT1. So, everytime I come home, I'll just place it in the Music Stand and my phone gets charged. My wife's 6230 has a similar life time. But she talks a LOT on the phone, so....
p/s: i really love the SE W800 coz it can hook up with a normal 3.5mm headphone and has a "flight" profile. but, DURABILITY is high in my preference - and Nokia hits the spot ;-)
i just bought a Fujifilm mobile phone printer which works via infrared but i cant seem to get my nokia to send the pictures to it via infrared.
can anyone help?
Its a great phone, although i do have a question regarding the bluetooth function. A friend of mine has the samsung d500 and we paired devices no problem, although he was able to browse my phone, looking at pictures, messages etc... and i could not seem to do the same to his phone, is it at all possible?? Please please let me know!!!!
Just tested it, once I received a sms while viewing a video through the media player, it will stop and have to re-start all over again.
re: Creating / changing tracklist
Thanks very much. You are a star, just tried as per your instructions and it worked!
Those Nokia ppl at the so called "support" centre are useless.
i want the push to talk settings but i live in scotland cann i still get them ?
i have the 6230 and am thinkin about upgrading to the 6230i. i was just wondering if the 6230i can zoom before taking photos or whether it can only zoom after taking them like the 6230. please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
When u play a video file through media player and u get a sms,does it stop and u have to start it all over again.or does it just pause
I think i figured out a way to make a playlist,but u will need to use pc suite for this.What u need to do is:
1)Open Transfer Music application in pc suite
2)Click on Edit-Create New Play list
3)it will then ask u to save the play list on ur pc,so save it
4)Click on the play list on the music studio window and then click the button add.
5)Add the songs u would like on ur playlist
6)once done,click on the transfer to phone button.
7)Now on the phone-click options once u open the music player-Select "Tracklist"-Click options-and "Change tracklist".
and thats it.
man sad to know a playlist cant be created. its alrite can live with tat.
on terms of games, can anyone tell me a good site to get free games? nice ones with good graphics?
also cant wait to see which is the next new mobile from nokia in the lines of the 6230i....
NokiaMia, I'm a huge Nokia fan, not because they are the #1 manufacturer or because of the name brand or because they are the most popular, I'm a fan because they make excellent quality phones, especially in terms of strength, features and reception. A big plus is that Nokia focuses a lot on calling and phone features whereas many phones don't (like Sony Ericsson). Best of all, Nokia reception is the best I have ever seen in a cell phone (Sony Ericsson is the worst). In my opinion, the build quality of Nokia is the best or among the best. My 6230 is my 6th cell phone and 4 of those were Nokia. The other two greatly disspointed, Siemens & Sony Ericsson (SE). In terms of build quality I fine SE to be the worst, joystick problems everytime, I personally experienced joystick problems on a level entry (T310) and also a flagship SE phone (T610) so there's no excuse right there. Some buttons failed to work eventually and SE processing speed is too slow. Even the non-joystick flagship SE phones ended up with bad problems (P800). Most of all, SE reception is the worst. Somebody once said SE needs to borrow some of Nokia's antennas. When a Nokia phone drops and hit the ground you need not worry but if it's a SE you better fret, I saw a P800 fell and there was a lot of blackness at the bottom of the screen (like a ink bag burst) and I met someone who had to get a replacement screen for their K700 because it fell and broke. The new SE K750 doesn't impress me. I read a post where in the K750 forum where a user's K750 fell and suddenly a black line was seen in the middle of the screen and wouldn't go away. I have never experienced any form of screen problems with a Nokia. In every Nokia's manual it is said that the Phone is made from superior craftsmanship, believe that statement, they aren't lying. I'm sticking to Nokia and don't ever plan to switch.
NokiaMia, the only question I have left is in regards to the high quality screen of the 6230i. I notice the 6230i uses the same battery as the original 6230. I'm wondering how badly does the high quality (208x208) screen drains the battery. Nokia batteries are usually long lasting but this is the highest quality screen I've ever seen on a Nokia phone so it makes me wonder how well is the battery able to cope with it. Catch you later.
Blade and Paul,
I've emailed the Nokia support here in Hong Kong regarding the track list, and they called me back to inform that the phone cannot create or change track lists. Kinda strange and sucks the phone has this option but its unusable. But if anyone else can really change or create one, I'd love to know too.
The phone behaves better now that I transferred all my mp3 ringtones to the internal memory, no more miss calls. Previously when I had ringtones saved on my memory card, every now and then, the ringtone would muted. However, the phone's screen still switch on out of the blue, a small bug, but acceptable.
I install the java applications thru nokia PC Suite 6.6.16
before installing the application the available memory in phone is 2mb
I install the java application about 128kb, after installed the application the free memory about 1.5mb
Anyone know why?
Any solution for this?
Thanks Nokia mia for your midi file...
Original_Jamaican, for your information, i am a malaysian.
I would like to offer a piece of advice: You will not regret it if are a user of Nokia 6230i..Trust me,you will never go wrong..Just go for it, forget other brands or models that boasting a state-of-the-art of camera quality like sony ericsson....
Hope that this advice will help you in deciding your dream phone..
Thanks, i now realise it's a charging thing,have since got a manual, have to say tho i dont see any answers to my questions in there, Last one being text alerts playing when sending a text as they do when receiving?! can it be disabled?
I also downloaded some .jar games and they also get small in my phone. Don't know why this happens.
As for the playlist thing, you are not the only one who is breaking his head. I don't think this phone supports playlists or else someone may have figured it out other than Vodaben.
