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.
the nokia 6230i has a limit only of 512mb card, 1g card does not work in this phone. thats why i stick with my trusty 6230 best phone, may not be as good as camera or longer video but still alot of fun and a good phone. u can stick up to a 2g card in this phone aswell.format needed before u do this aswell.
yes youn will find that you will soon run out of memory and the recording time is limited by the memory space available on the phone. try setting it to save onto the memory card as you will get more on and can also record for up to 1hour! Pretty pointless really as the video quality is very poor compared to the samsung e720 and other video phones
i got a question abt the video cam. i find that my recording time is decreasing n im not able to put it to max time again that is the 37 mins..anyone can help out???
I'll be nice to start with. Overall, not too bad. Changed back to Nokia after a nightmarish time with SE, and joy of joys, reception as ever is great, GPRS too! Everything is where it should and accesible be without half a dozen key presses. However, same questions as other users over file compatibilty between handsets. (And whichever version of 3G Nokia are using? every video i encode for it plays back silently) But, and when you spend a fair chunk of money on something it's fair to ask, "Why does it randomly hang?"
The idea, that like a dead PC i should rely on the IT support litany of "Switch it off, Switch it on again" seems stupid when i'm using a phone whose primary use is.. well as a phone. I've seen other posts mentioning this and what stuns me is the response from Nokia. "Contact your local repair shop." If i'm not mistaken the repair shop didn't build the phone or write the software and they didn't take the money for the phone.
What most users are asking for (apart from a fully functioning phone) is good service. Not premium rate phone numbers or membership of a club that allows them to shower you with junk mail or troubleshooting guides that ask only the questions the manufacturer wants answered. I didn't buy the phone because of lifestyle advertising. I didn't want 3D spinning logo's.
I bought it because a) Signal. Got Nokia, Got Signal. b) While i absolutely love my 6310, my work is in video and as such i needed a video phone. (Nokia! clear instructions on file formats please!)
Personally i feel that Nokia have dropped the ball again by releasing a half finished phone that should have been £100 cheaper with a plain i.e. stable interface and had some of the more pointless features left out (Media and Gallery could easily have been combined etc. etc.) and more work done on the processing power. 6230i suffers from a ludicrous amount of breakup in its video for a phone of its spec and price. Anyway, Pull you finger out Nokia! The competition are catching up.
so far, not happy at all with my 6230i. many faults and differences to the 6230 mainly include the ascending ring tone, no seperate inbox or outbox for multimedia,not being able to recieve or send jpg files to and from a samsung d500. And most of all, please tell me that you all have noticed it too, the biggest problem ive had is the message tone volume when the phone is set to volume 5. upon recieving a message, the volume will appear to be at level 3..?? this sticks out like a sore thumb and is something that i noticed within 15 mins of recieving the phone. Personally I think this is far more of a problem than the ascending ringtone everyone keeps talking about. Does anyone else have this problem? - James
hey, i got some problem of my nokia 62301, i dunno why i cant open some files which sent by my friend through bluetooth? some files including songs and movies....
to tasha i also have this problem connectiong to nokia pc suite with the bluetooth, i find it works though if you use the original bluetooth software (BlueSoleil) and then transfer evverything to nokia pc suite if required. Also i have had my phone about tow weeks now and it has started to respond rather slowley with up to 5 second delys in pressing the keys and their function occuring eg to unlock the keypad this takes ages due to the unusually slow response time. i am only using a 128mb card which is no where near full so cannot think of a reason for this to happen
To all nokia 6230i fans,the ascending ring tone is actually not a bug,its nokias pollicy
email from nokia:"please be informed that if the volume of the phone is set to level 4 or 5, the phone will ring in an ascending mode. This ascending mode on the Nokia 6230i is a feature of the phone and is in accordance to our specifications.
This feature is designed to avoid any possible ear
damage by allowing the phone to ring softer for the first few seconds before
hitting the maximum strength."
This question has been answered in this forum quite a number of times. I remember I myself answered this question 3-4 times. Anyway, this phone supports upto 2GB of MMC. I tested my phone with a 1 and 2 GB MMC and they worked but with very poor results. My phone became unstable viz. frequent hangups, shutdowns, slowing of the processor etc.If this phone says upto 512MB then surely Nokia engineers have a point in it. Many people just don't want to understand and use a 1 or 2GB MMC and then they suffer. So my advice to you is don't waste your money buying a MMC higher than 512MB. Peace.
6230i is better then d500 simply because d500 doesnt have card slot that is enough reason for me or wait d600 to arrive and buy it:D any way 6230i has it all forza nokia:D
Hello! I have a question.. I`ve got a 6230i with 128mb rs-mmc on it.. I want to buy a new card, 1gb.. Does 1gb mmc work on 6230i? Anybody know? Or is that 512mb limit for real? Please answer my question.. Thank u
i just got the 6230i n im not able to connect my bluetooth wiz the cell software(pc suite, nokia mgr)..its always saying no connection available....anyone can help wiz that
If your phone has an echo during calls, try turning off the audio enhancing. Go to settings, call settings, audio enhancing.
It is meant to cut out your background noise for the other person, but a side effect is the echo.
i dnt get dis the video camera on it is supposed 2 b ded gud but wen i record summat n watch it obn my phone it gos abit jumpy and wen i movbe d camera while its recordin den d picture goes all messed up were as if i transfer the clip i recorded 2 d pc it plays it super smooth n d pic is ded clear is der sumthin wrong wi my phone or is it like dat wi evry1s ? plz reply plz lol cyz all l8a
when u come to ur pics or ringtones folder go to any file n then press the left selection key.. it should bring ou toptions like download, delete, send etc. select send. then it will ask whether u wanna send thru bluetooth infra red or multimedia.if u select infrared make sure the other mobiles infra red is activated. then point the port of ur fone to the other fone. u should be able to send d files.
bluettoth is even better. switch on ur bluetooth by goin to settings, connectivity n then bluetooth. again the others fones bluetooth should be activated. once u select a file to send thru bluetooth. it may take few seconds to recognise the other fone. then u shpuld be able to send.
hope this helps. u could also read reviews of the 6230i on this site n other sites to get some tips on using all d features.
hello everyone I hope this is not a stupid question but can I download this nokia v3.40 firmware ,wich is all talking about ,is it posible:)anyone?
