I have encountered incoming messages many a times in between talking to someone but it only gives a beep sound to let you know of the incoming message. I think there is something wrong with your set. This shouln't happen actually. My profile is in General mode.
I tried this out with my friends cell,she is also facing the same problem of the sms tone playing in the ears.Is this a software problem
Guys,i have noticed a peculiar prob in my 6230i,generally when u are talking to someone and u receive a sms,it will give a very soft beep,but in my cell when im talking to someone say i get a call and i dont take it and continue talking,and if i get an sms it will play the sms tone of the profile which deafens my ear as im talking on the phone to someone.Try it out,make a call,ask someone to just give u a misd call and then ask someone to send a msg,will it give a soft beep like it has to or does it play the sms tone of the profile.let me know
does anyone knows where to download java games? a lot of websites that i review doesnt support this phone and that sucks.
Tis is the best phone ever. It does anything and everythimg you want it to. Way better than the SE K700i.
Nice phone NOKIA
General questions for everyone.
Does everyone here who owns a 6230i experience ascending ringtones ?
Ascending ringtones is an unusual move for Nokia. I only expect that from Sony Ericsson.
How much slower is the speed, example, after pressing the menu button, how many more seconds does it takes before seeing 'Messages' appear...in comparison to the original 6230 ?
What do you all think about the camera quality compared to the original 6230 ?
Is the video recording clearer, even though it's QCIF somehow a sample I saw (on the internet) looked the same as the original 6230 which records in subQCIF.
Is the sound quality the same or better ?
NokiaMia I have read your posts before (the one to Christine) and enjoyed reading them. In fact your input educated me on the differences which in some cases I was shocked.
Your input from way back to Christine made me think twice about getting the 'i'. Nevertheless, I easily have the option of getting the 'i' due to a certain source so I'm weighing my options for both phones.
NokiaMia I have not yet had a hands on experience on the 'i'. I haven't even seen it in person. So NokiaMia, my question to you is this, should I replace my faulty 6230 with a brand new one OR upgrade to the 'i' ?
I've since been to the local Nokia shop regarding the text prob and they said it's because i'm on o2 and it's an o2 thing that they do to their sim cards. I hadnt read your reply at that point and i was not aware of 'flashing' the guy didnt mention it either.
Is it worth me goin back there and askin their opinions on 'flashing' it?
as for ur prob i think its best u take ur mob to a nokia centre n get it flashed to a newer firmware, somethin like v3.3 or 3.4. or if u have delivery reports enabled, try turnin tat off. best thing get it checked.
as for file sendin i don face ne probs. my friends got a se700 n we regulalry transfer songs, pics( highest reso) n nethin else. most of d probs can b solved if nokia surveys all d probs n releases newer firmwares.
as for password protection. yep never forget ur password. n don think we can enable ps for folders.
I just now noticed your post and saw that you tried to send the snap to a SE K700i and it didn't work. Well bro I have no clue cause it worked with my brother's phone which is a SE K700i.
A few days ago my brother bought a SE K700i. I snapped some pictures using my phone and sent them to his phone via bluetooth(I did this with the sole purpose of testing the bluetooth) and it worked perfectly. The snaps were taken in full resolution ie. in 1280x1024.
Can anyone tell me if you can extend the time that the phone will ring for before diverting to the answer phone? I dont want to turn the asnwer phone feature off though
I posted this earlier...
Hi..a question on texting...
Every time i send a text, it plays the selected tone and vibrates as if i am receiving the text and says message sent. Can i disable it to be silent when SENDING the text only? and play n vibrate when i receive? I'm on o2 pay n go
Craig - i dont believe theres a way to password-protect a folder. even if you set-up a password for the mem-card, it's still accessible EXCEPT the card is slotted into anything else but your phone. i hope nokia is looking into this.
anyway, word of caution: DO NOT LOSE YOU PASSWORD (like I did). the learning is: i dont set password anymore.
Original Jamaican - i personally upgraded from a 6230 to 6230i. My main motivations were the BRIGHT and BIG screen and the huge internal memory. But the gripe over 6230 is that 6230i is slower (6230 is blazingly FAST!!!) and the bigger screen makes the aesthetic beauty of the phone lesser. Other than these, both phones are just as good. Your choice. (over my part of the world, all cellphones are Open SIM - so, there's no issue of sim-lock etc).
About sending a photo to a SE phone - I have personal experience on that one. In my case, it was a SE K700i. If I snapped a photo in 1.3MP resolution, SE can't receive it. But after I change to 640x480 resolution, then the SE accepts it. I think it's got to do with SE being thrifty with their memory - and could not accept big files. My friend was very frustrated with his SE. Poor guy.
Ok thanks blade..
In that case, forgive me for not being too bright with the phone, is there a way to password a folder in the gallery then? as i'd like some privacy with my pics?
hey quinn herrera
man theres somethin seriously wrong with ur fone man. i seriously doubt whether one ur fones probably the selection button is pressed too hard n stuck. u can get it checkd.
as for d password protection, the memory card will prompt for d password only when it is inserted in another fone.
