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.

Only one problem with the phone, the soft ware, The crazy thing froze up and started going crazy on me. It was going through the contact list by its self and the only way to get it to stop was to pull the battery out. Then it started locking up with the key lock on and the only way to turn it off, was to pull the battery. Then it started going through the photos by its self, it was like it was being hacked into and someone else was looking at all my pics and there was nothing I could do but pull the battery. It is a great phone until all the software goes bad. Now they tell me that they are recalling all of them and that I have to replace it with a different phone that is in no way compariable. So love your 6230i while it last.
I want some advice from a tech savy person. I have a 6230 which was unlocked from the Orange Network so it could be used in another country, Jamaica. Certain features doesn't work, mainly bluetooth, it worked only twice since I got the phone and hasn't worked since. Internet doesn't work even though the settings are correct. Voice commands only has 7 listed instead of the 16. Night Mode takes long to load and after pressing the button to save a pic, it takes about 3 seconds before the saving status is shown. Standard camera mode works very fast, only nightmode moves slow.
My country now has the phone for sale and I was wondering if I should just buy back a 6230 or upgrade to the 6230i mainly because of more built-in memory, longer video-recording time, longer dictaphone (voice memo) 3D games, better screen (even though I still love the original 6230 screen). I won't comment on the 1.3 MP camera because I have heard and seen photos on the internet where there's noise in the pictures even when the pics were taken in good lighting conditions. Nevertheless, because of the upgraded features I was thinking about getting the 6230i but the complaints about ascending ringtones / message tones, noise in photos and not being able to support more than 512MB MMC is a turn off so I'm at a point where I'm really considering my options.
What do you tech savy people think, buy back a brand new 6230 or upgrade to the 'i' ?

i want to know if the nokia 6230i kit comees with a connectivity cable DKU-2?..im planning to purchase a unit..thanks...
This is rather a strange problem with your phone. Apart from the ascending ringtone problem there is one more problem of ringtones switching back to the default nokia tune if the ringtone selected is in the phone's memory card and not in the phone's shared memory. Your phone's problem is unique and my advice to you is you go to your dealer and ask for a replace because in my opinion this is your handset's fault.Peace
Anyone else had this fault with the 6230i, the ring/message tones keep turning themselves to Level 1, the only way to get them back is to turn phone off then back on again. Incidentally the Ascending volume of tones on Max is Normal, this has been confirmed by Nokia who say it's to stop peoples ear drums being blasted if you have phone to your ear as call comes in! Anyone help with my fault please?
just own this phone for 3 weeks.great phone but somehow i just cant save multimedia messages. plz help.
and one more thing, where can i download games like snakes and pairs II? tq
i agree with u about the problem with the message tone when set to max volume for ringing. The tone just doesnot even ascend, it starts at a low level and after quite a time it shoots up to the maximum. If u use any conventional message tones then by the time the volume goes to the maximum the tone has ended. the ascending ring tone maybe a feature but i don't agree that this behaviour for the message tone is also a feature. this is clearly a flaw in the software. another worth mentioning is that if u change ur theme the ringtone resets to the nokia tone however the message tones donot change, i need to ask nokia to give a justification for this, if a tone is linked with a theme them why does only the ringer tone change and not the messagw tone. for all who have problems with the message tone i recommend u use a MP3 or AAC tone with a bit long duration for it, atleast u'll get to know that u have a message.
