Bought it 2 weeks ago.UNHAPPY. the dictaphone is SO SILENT. Cannot increase the volume. Cannot record conversations also. The video recording is also so SILENT. The one hour audio recording was impressive but the volume is SO SILENT. I cannot get any satisfaction from listening a recorded song. RUBBISH!!!!
I bought this phone in the week and i love it. I had the 6610i before this and i think that the sound was better on that then the 6230i but its nothing to worry about. And also the battery life is not that good on it, but perhaps that is because i keep messing around on it.
Can anyone please tell me - in very simple language - exactly how to get music tracks (mp3's) to play when they are stored on a memory card (I have a card reader/writer).
1. Do I have to put them onto my memory card in any particular or special way?
2. Can I get them to play one after another without having to push play for each track?
3. Is there anything else I need to know or do?
Ohh! One more thing! Ivan don't buy samsung e730 phone because it have no memory slot! And 92 Mb memory is not enough in a mp3 playing phone! So think in Z500 and 6230i! But i offer 6230i! I'm going to buy that phone too! Bye: Hege!
Nokia 6230i is one of the best phones! The only Problem with this phone is it have only 65k color screen! But there is much more good things in this than bad! So i say it is one of the best phones at the moment!
I have a 623oi with software version 3.4o Didn't have problems so far with ascendent ringtones, mp3/video player. However, i hear my own voice in the headphone (a minimum echo). What menu is missing?
ive just bought the 6230i, what is the best way to use bluetooth? can anyone tell me
Thanks for your valuable inputs. They were really helpful. My mobile both as per numberingplans website and the code you mentioned seems to be a july maufacured one. I am actually surprised that still it has older firmware. I shall get it updated soon to 3.30 to solve the hang issues.I also read somewhere that 3.30 has fixed issues with phone not identifyinh aac music tracks. I have confirmed that the latest in India is 3.30 as of now.
I would be careful before I upgrade to 3.40 as some people say it does not have the audio enhacement option in the menu. this is problematic if it does not by default is switched on in this firmware.
I have been seeing your posts for quite some time now and I know is very horrible if you land up with a defective piece. The guys in call centre and service centre as just useless. Hope you get a proper replacement soon.
The problem that u say about the phone freezing while playing video is an issue with v3.25. its said that in v3.25 the phone tends to hang when using the camera/Music player/video recorder. this issue has been fixed in v3.3. Its said that v3.4 is out but i don't know if its available in india. i've had 3 6230i phones, one was the one i purchased and the other two were the replacemnts i got from nokia. I'm not sure but Kewl i think u should check up the warranty code of your phone (type *#92702689#) to see ur phones maufacturing date or check using its IMEI number on www.numberingplans.com . it happened that i got mine on 9th may with v3.25 and the date on the box was arpil 05 but the warranty code and IMEI number analysis gave the date to be 6 Jan'05. I had the ascending ringtone problem (well i still have it even in my 2nd replacement) i updated to v3.3. I got my 2nd replacemnt on 30 june, manufacture date 6 Jan'05 v3.3. My third set i got on 5th August with manufacturing date 1 June'05 v3.3. it happened that the nokia service centre replaced my v3.3 with v3.25 and i experienced the phone freezing and rebooting in the videorecoreder/player. i suggest u check the manufacturing date and if its a Jan'05 phone i highly recommend u getit replaced as the june'05 phone is quite improved in performance than the Jan'05 one. Contact the nokia office and HCL service at bangalore promptly for it. Please check for the ascending ringtones and SMS tones when the volume is set to max. i've been having this issue since i got this phone and after 3 replacements its still there. Nokia says that v3.3 has some issues with hindi SMS, if u don't use hindi SMS then its fine t go for v3.3. check up this forum for earlier posts where u can get a list of issues with v3.25 and the improvements with v3.3
I am from Bangalore, and I have finally brought a new 6230i just day before yesterady.
Manufacturing date says july 2005, but the software version is 3.25.
But I did not face any issues as such. After a days use including some video recording, fiddling with the different oprtions and bluetooth transfer for about and hour, there just 2 bars down.
I dont use the highest volume level and I have no ascending prblem also.
The phone did freeze once after it played the Nokia Demo video from external memory. Can some one list the fixex in 3.30 wrt to 3.25.
Hi guys, i agree with kaiser that the ascending rintone problem may be a feature. Well i was checking up my handsfree, and it seems that the ascending problem exists even for the handsfree. In my opinion as generally the handsfree and speaker hardware driver componets are independent to each other, this ascending thing is something that has been programmed as such in the phone. If its a problem, then surely its a software problem, and not a hardware one. Whats ur opinion guys?
i have a 6230 and a 6230i.. the latter bein the new 3.3 version. i still find my 6230 more louder than the 'i'. i couldn keep the 6230 on full volume cus it wass too loud in public! but the 'i' is hardly audible. plus the increasing volume prob on max control. guess we all have to adjust to tat. hey do u guys know how to get a theme makin software for the 'i'?
Very rare applications are there for Java phones. Sis files are for symbian phones so there is little hope of getting applications for this phone and if you get them they will be of minimal use.
Can anyone suggest me a site where i can get applications for 6230i. i tried .sis files but they dont work on this phone.
Try to connect to S.E.HBH-600 bluetooth, but can't connect if bluetooth is already paired with other any phone.
