i read from some people here that the light comes on and off for this 6230i....
i realised its nokia way of saying... hey the screen saver is switched on now... :)
anyway the fireware is not very stable. i have set mp3 songs as my sms ring tones. but that day some how or another when a friend of mine text me, the ring tone was the default nokia tone.... strange...but now its fine...
I've actually called up Nokia several times on some of those feedback, but they claims so far no issues, maybe user doesn't know how to express it, ascending is to protect the speaker, battery worn because user play with it offen....etc, they just deny on all the defect in it!! True that Nokia is going down slope already, sooner will be taking over by Samsung or SE. Sometimes really felt that its headache to get a high end phone rather than just a simple one.
no, i dont have that problem! and i am very happy with that.. oh.. and im not a "user", im just vlad :)
Hi does anyone know the official release date for this phone on orange pay as you go UK??? i purchased this phone pver a month ago online having been told it was available in stock and i would recieve my order nxt working day, i didnt so rang up and was told that it is not being released until 1st August, i have now been told that they have changed the release date but could not tell me when?
I have the same 3.30 version too, and also have the exact same sms scenario as yours when I set a song as the tone. The sms tone is ascending when I set my tone to maximum level. :(
The user who stated that his/firmware is 3.40, do you experienced any of these problems regarding ascending sms/ringtones? Problems with muted ringtones too? If not, I hope Nokia can offer upgrades for us 3.30 users.
For: "mp3_lover" persoally i find the K750i Mp3 volume better, my mother has the 6230i and i (3 nd a hlf weeks ago got the k750i) nd i find the mp3's louder and clearer, my mp3's are also stored better and i have more different play mode features.
Hi Fred & Nokia user 2, Just curious to know what's both firmware versions? What I've encounter was..if SMS rec'd more than one at the same time(if using songs as ringtone)it will sounds at level 3 only. But after that, it will goes back to normal.
Mine is V3.30
Opsi, forgot to mention that this sudden muted ringtones happens to a number of my user groups. Tired deleting them etc, reset and so on, still missed calls as the result of the sudden muted ringtones. In the previous set of Nokias, it was restricted to 5 user groups only, but with the 6230i, one can create many user groups. Improve feature, but it lacks functionality. Pointless Nokia!
Their so called "support" ain't no help either, ignores them or tell me they have "noted" my complaint. Blah!
And yes, this ascending ringtones is annoying, especially as its not even loud in the first place.
I have bought Nokia 6230i for quite some time.But, I am quite annoyed by the ascending ring tone.
Just tested what your written and its true, it happened exactly as you described. I've complainted here before about the sudden muted ringtones, it usually (but not always) happens when I use a bluetooth and then I disconnected it. But it doesn't always happen, still cannot figure exact reason why it rings perfectly one moment, then the next, no ringtones, no vibration (even though it is set on). Really very disappointed with this phone as I pre-ordered this after seeing the many features. Hopefully they will have a software upgrade soon to solve this, otherwise this will be my last ever Nokia I will purchase.
As for the battery life - as other users mentioned - take note that the phone's light comes on every now and then for no reason (even if the battery saving function is on), this could attribute to the poor battery life. Another Nokia software problem.
There is a manufacturing defect in this model. If the ring tone is set to max (5)it will ring at only level 2 or 3 after having used the voice dail function. The phone settings have not changed yet it still rings at a low level. If you check the ring volume it will still say 5 even though it is not.
The only way to fix this is to turn the phone off and then turn it back on again. However, the problem will occur again next time you use the voice dail function.
I tested on several brand new phones and they all have this problem. Nokia was not aware of the problem and currently do not have a fix for it so I ended up returning it and buying an different brand.
The 6230i id good phone i am using it now from 2 months and no probs but i was really disapointed of one thing the center scrol button has worn out i dint scrach it or damaged it i wonder why nokia made it from such a material the phone is of hight class and it looks so odd now.....
why does by battery only last 2-3 days max. I send 10 texts a dasy and use less than 5 mins of calls. I don't use the welocme sound or screen savers or wallpapers and nor do I use the camera or radio or bluetooth etc...
I have the power saver option on - whats happening ???
Can somebody tell me, in which phone MP3 player's sound quality is better. N6230i or SE K750i?
In your previous post dated 01.08.2005 to Christine you asked her to buy a DKU-5 cable but the 6230i supports DKU-2.
The display covers an area of 9.00 cm2 ie nine centimeter square. The Nokia 6230i does not run on the Symbian Operating system so no question about the version. Peace.
My boyfriend has this phone and there is nothing wrong with it! the coversations are very clear!
because the phone echos when your in calls i hear my voice being thrown back at me. thats why its rubish
what are the improvements in firmware v3.4 ?
NokiaMia, Thanks for your support. I really appreciate it. Thank you.
