hi SC im sorry you are dissapointed with the 6230i that is quite a sad story you wrote on here about the phone and it echoing when you talk. This is the same thing that happend to me when i had a 6230 changed it 4 times so i know its a problem with all 6230's as i had echoing on all 4 of them i had and which is the main reason i had reservations about purchasing the new 6230i which you have done. I'm glad i didn't purchase the 6230i as it would have been a case of me jumping from the frying pan and into the fire as i found the echoing very anoying on my old 6230 i sold it and brought a k750 which has 2 megapixels, memory card, flash unlimited video recording so it can record way over hour but most of all the k750 doesnt echo when you talk like the 6230 and 6230i, its unbeleivable how nokia can sell these phones with such major reception faults who wants to listen to their own voice when their talking to another person. Sooner or later this is going to get very anoying. Avoid 6230 and 6230i at all costs as they echo really really dramaticly, if you are reading this and still planning to purchase these phones then you will be wasting money.
I bought this phone last week from Bangalore. I don't have any problems with the ascending ringtone as mentioned here by other guys. I have not tried with mp3 tones yet, but my other tones start at volume 3 and ascends to 5 in abt 3-5 seconds. So no problems with that. As for message alert tone, no problems at all. It's audible without any problems. My firmware version is 3.3.
So far I've quite liked the phone. But the downsides are poor battery life & slow menu. Add to it, no sms distribution list. But still can cope up with it. On the up side, camera is much better than what i thought, after i read all the user reviews. Serves my purpose, but the night shots are grainy. The sound quality is also good. So satisfied with the phone up till now.
Thank you very much Paul and Rep. I've got it. I've used "ImTOO 3GP Video convert" to convert WMV and AVI movies file to 3GP movies. And that file can play by the phone. But the quality is not good. The video goes behind the audio. So, I disappoint about the video player function of this phone. But, that is better have no one! Thank again!
To Farewell di**head
Read the statement properly,then jump to conclusions.
i stated that "ON 6 BARS THE PHONE COULDNT POSSIBLY LAST U A DAY"
iam well aware that the phone has 7bars.
next time, do all of us a favour and stop pointing out errors on peoples msgs that are not valid "THINK BEFORE YOU INK"
New "designed problem" again...other than the sick ascending problem, I've encounter that the volume button at the side require "quick" press inorder to increases volume as otherwise, it will switch to the PPT mode. BUT, when in idle stage(when listening to radio) no matter how quick u press, no use!!? Just wonder the designer thinking going backwards...
Hi guys, i'm still stuck with the ascencing ringtone problem. Even my new replacement set has this problem. As per my opinion nearly all phones in India which were of the April-May'05 batch have this problem irrespective of the firmware version. The replacement i got was a loose set without a box so i cannot find its date of manufature. Does some one have any way to find the manufacturing date of my handset. The ascending problem is only when the ringer volume is at level 5, this even exists for the SMS tone (i tried a longer duration tone and found this flaw). i've checked out with midi files also but still the same ascending problem. Does any one else in India have these problems?
Learn how to count it has 7 bars not 6!!!!!
'i have a 6230i and i must say that the battery really sucks.6 bars on the phone..."
The phone is the greatest!!! Russia is going crazy for it! It's almost imposibble to get it... Huge lines!!! Got it yesterday!!! So happy!!
Nokia 6230i Forever!!!!!!!
I think it can only play 3gp and mpeg4 formats.I tried 3gp,the quality isnt good,in fact,K700's video playing is of better quality.NOt sure about the mpeg4
This phone cannot play .wmv or .avi or .mpg files. Please convert the above formats in .3gp format for the phone to play. You can use ImTOO 3GP Video Converter for the purpose. Regards.
i dont know which phone to buy,,, the Nokia 6230i or the sony k750i? sony k750i has zoom and flash and is alot better rite??
My phone have upgraded to 512Mb memory card, and I've copied 'wmv' movie file to my phone but it cant play that file. After that I've used the "WMV to AVI MPEG VCD SVCD DVD Converte" to converte it to "avi" movie file, but my phone still can not play that converted files. So,Does my phone have problem or Are those files not the format of the phone? Thank you very much in advance for your answer my silly question!
Mike, what a joke? you are still asking whether to buy 6230i ot k700. K700 is an outdated VGA camera phone, no memory card slot, no need to go further.
Nokia 6230i is the one of the best phone that Nokia created and hard to be beaten. Sonyericsson is still far behind.
All other applications working well, except the radio which never gives stereo effect. Even my cheap walkman sounds great during stereo reception.
It is great. But it would be complete if a camera flash and a torch are incorporated.
