hi,got the 6230i and the battery really improves after a few weeks.SORRY NOKIA for my earlier post here.anyway is it possible to play avi files on this phone or there any java based avi players??and this phone REALLY ROCKS
To upgrade your firmware, just take it to the nearest Nokia Center. It should not be more than 20mins. In M'sia, free upgrade for < 1yr old Zitron/Avaxx set but RM30 for AP set.
hey christine - u finally bought the 6230i? get yourself a DKU-5 cable (i use the non-Nokia brand for less than RM20 thru lelong.com.my - it works the same) and make yr phone a thumb-drive (provided u have a memory card). Very easy to manage your files - just drag and drop.
hey paul, keep up the great work! you've helped so many people!
May i know if there is a converter or something like that to covert video files like Mpeg to Mpeg4??? If yes where can i download a free version???
I've 3.30 soft version,the latest here in Romania,according to NOKIA. I've 1 problem:MMS!Only amr files are accepted.WHY!?6230 was OK!
Hi Vlad, sure u have tested "NO" problem with V3.40, even the sick acsending ringtone, lines when pw on etc?
If really so, than sure all fans will go for it...
this phone not support real player and not support mp4 audio and not support sis files cause the software is not symbian it is nokia 40 series
Sophie i totally agree with you i always hear a echo on my 6230i when i'm talking on it. It is definately the phone not the network because this only happens on the 6230i phone and my friend has a 6230i as well and he says his echos. We both are on t-mobile. I tried my t-mobile sim in my old old 8210 and i heard no echoing at all when in calls so its safe to say there is a fault with the 6230i. Infact i was reading a review of the older 6230 at cnet and they also reported echoing on the 6230 so it looks like the 6230i inherited the unfortunate echoing from the 6230 when NOKIA "revved up the features inside"
I have test and found that no matter your mp3 song is stereo, the music coming to your head set is mono! both ears are same.
I have connect to laptop and checking signal from both ear of head set and signal are mix. Not stereo as the origin mp3 song.!
Can anyone tell me how to upgrade the firmware of my phone? Can I do it myself or I have to take it to my retailer??
my version is 3.40, made in hungary in may 2005. so i am very happy! no prb till now, nice features and still the battery last for aprox. 3 days, without heavy usage....
i reccomend it. :)

Now i have buyed my Nokia 6230i ! :D very beautifull and nice :D I like it allot ! I don't know from where to have software ! Real Player Media :( pleasee tell me ;)
does anyone know how to stop the 6230i from echoing when your in a call? i keep hearing my voice when i talk on the phone its begining to get on my nerves.
overall a fantastic phone. just a problem i noticed - reboots while visiting some (mostly https) websites.

can any1 tell me abt a Free email client (pop3) for 6230i - should also support secured pop3/smtp (for gmail.com account)
thanks in advance... Pranav (Mumbai, India)
Visual radio is the feature that gives you the opportunity to see through details of the station that you are currently listening to, information on the song etc. But many countries have no support for visual radio so your phone doesn't respond to it.
Again this phone is tested for MMC upto 512MB so using a MMC more than that can slow your phone down and thus performance is compromised. In one of my previous posts I mentioned about this and that I tested my handset with a 1GB MMC but the results were not good eg. frequent shutdowns etc. So please dont use MMCs more than 512MB if you want your phone to perform perfectly. Enjoy.
I have been using this phone for a month now. When I was about to buy the phone, there were much talk about the ringtone & the firmware issues. Even then I decided to go for the phone as I had quite liked the features of the phone when I went thru the reviews.
The + es according to me
1. Display is very good, though the screen size is small compared to other phones.
2. Sound quality is good (though k750i beats it a long way). Still very good quality for mp3s & AACs (on the flip side, bass is lacking in the sound, but c'mon, this is a phone)
3. As always the lovely nokia Menu system
4. Small in size( smaller than the samsung c100 i used earlier)
5. Expandable memory - I am using a 1 GB MMC
6. Phone is loaded with most of the features that one will look out for
7. Reception quality is good.
8. Camera quality is also good (but not anywhere as good as k750)
1. The phone is a little slow in responding, especially since I put the MMC in it
2. No SMS distribution list (which is a basic feature & a must according to me )
3. The screen size could have been bigger, but not much complaints..
4. mp3 volume even at maximum level is not that high. A little bit on the lower side..
All in all, so far so good.
i think this fone is kella.....i personlly own 1 and have had no probs wit it as yet. 1 thing i wnt to know is how to get visual radio working?? does ne1 know???
Question, WHAT IS VISUAL RADIO??? I see it all over the place... what is it?
