People out there who are complaining about the white lines...I don't know why you guys are bothered with that???Does the white lines affect your eyes or they pinch you huh??PLEASE stop complaining, either enjoy the phone or throw it away. Thats it.
Mine's 3.30. Earlier piece had 3.23.
Yes, I do have one issue I forgot to add. The camera has a noticeable shutter lag. So you need to get your subject still for more than the normal second. This is rather difficult with difficult subjects like kids or scene from a moving object! But again, this camera is for fun shots, for serious shots I'd obviously use a digicam.
Does anyone knows how to install application on 6230i..I'd tried on Nokia PC Suite conected using IRDA but it just doesn't work. The Icon is there but won't open or bring to any active menu...Please Help....Also do you know of any application useful for this phone? Pls advise...Tnx..
good fone so btw whats the latest price of 6230i in KL? i wan to know thanx post the price pls
No, my new set doesnt have the ascending ring tone issue or the whitelines while switching on. Older piece had the 2nd problem, but not the first.
For others whining about the phone:
Ringtone issue is rather small compared what another rival model from another manufacturer is facing....reset of the memory and sim card everytime you switch it off. I had wanted to exchange to that one while I was waiting for this and my dealer asked me not to - despite the fact that he could have pocketed extra money in the process. He has quite a few complaints on that front and the manufacturer has done nothing about it so far. And I did confirm this issue via quite a few online forums too! In that sense, Nokia is a better devil :-)
Hey wannabelean, how do u go about crashing the phone?i think the one's in South Africa are 90%.
Does anyone of you face any problem with the phone's infrared? It seems that sometimes the phone can't receive files transferred using infrared. Anyone has this problem with the infrared?
For Expert ppl out there...Pls advise if this unit can play wav tone?...if not is there a way to load application to support this? manny tnx... JAB
I just read that u got a replacement for your 6230i in bangalore and the sets just fine. i just wanted to inquire that does the new lot of phones still have the ascending ringtone problem and does your phone show vertical white lines at switch on as i'm having with my phone.
There is no way you can play N-gage games on the S40 platform. Although I'm not sure, the chances of you finding a gameboy emulator is very low for S40 devices
No man. It works fine. The 6230i is a great phone sans the alarms and tones problem which makes it compeletely useless. Whether its good or not for you is a decision you'll have to make. If you can settle with volume 4 ring then its a fine phone. There are other things Nokia has overlooked with this phone. They are not problems but for some unknown reason Nokia has not included them in this phone.
1. You call not send mass sms...There is no way to send a message to a list(contact group) of people.No firmware update will change this( If you need a confirmation, post a message here because a Nokia expert has given this information). So dont assume that it will be included in the future. This has been a standard feature in Nokia phones for more than two years now. So all of you who want to send "Happy New Year" or anything else to the hundreds of your friends and family your in for a major dissapointment because you have to manually send them one by one.
2. There is no option to delete all sms delivery reports. Again, this has been a standard feature in Nokia phones for more than two years now.
3. Only 50 contacts can be assigned to a user group. A friend of mine has assigned 150 contacts to a group on his 6230.
4. When you type a long sms message and when you are about to review it by going on top, the phone reboots. I dont remember exactly how it happened but it did happen twice and its an issue being discussed by most 6230i owners. If you want more info on this, post a message and I'll let you know exactly on how to crash it ;)
That sums it up all
does the 6230i play ngage games? cam you modify it via programs to do so?
is there a way of saving the game files to the mmc card and opening via applications(collection) or game menu as mine is full and i would like to add tons of games to my mmc but cant open drectly.
pps. is there a gameboy emulator for the 6230i? does it play full screen 208x208? also are the roms accessible if saved to mmc card?
please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
can anyone ans my ques asap??? i need the ans urgently... is tat phone really have so many prob?? including the 1 i've mention...
wannabelean watever ure nik was get over it its just a ringtone wether it ascends or not which it dosnt i own 6230i its loud top quality and reliable so stop complaining people no1s forcing you to buy nokia it is reliable alot better then other fones
Dude you dont know if its an issue or not probably because you are probably from a western country. In India, life is noisy and even worse I work in a noisy environment. I have employees giving me missed calls because they are not authorized to make outgoing calls. Intentional missed calls usually last for a sec or two. This stupid POS starts working after the 4th second or so. So dont the phone is completely ok and reliable. All of these are very valid complaints. Do you want to know how to crash the 6230i phone? Email me and I'll let you know. I've bought this phone for a reason. Its because I love its features the mp3 player and camera. I still do love them but I cant keep this phone because it lacks basic functionality. I've been a Nokia fan all along until this incident. I can tell one thing for sure that Nokia have the biggest mistake by saying that they will launch 40 phones this year. When that happens what happens? Quality assurance and important testing goes for a toss and its visibly showing now. The 3230 is ridden with bugs as well and lets not forget the 6680. My friends own these phones and I know the hell they are going with. One thing is very clear. Nokia phones should be avoided in the year of 2005.
wanna ask 1 ques... is it true tat ppl send u a mp3 tone... u cannot use it as a ringing tone????
I bought the Nokia 6230i, a week ago mine also shows those lines on the screen when switching on...
But my phone haven't swithed off yet ...YET
I have a Nokia 6230i and i have been problems with it since the day i got it. Besides the regular problems with the ring tones (ascending when set to ringing,low volume for messages and too soft keypad tones), i'm having problems with the display. When i switch on the phone the display shows white streak like vertical lines on the black background and then its normal. i live in New Delhi, India. i have given the handset to the service and after 3 weeks they say that the lines are like this on all 6320i sets. the person says that this happens even for other sets like 6600,N-gage,3230. Well i have a 3650 set but that does not have this problem. Does any one else in India or elsewhere also has this problem on the 6230i. Now my phone has come up with another new problem, it keeps switching off itself. The service person have withheld the phone and i'm trying to get nokia to replace the set. The set was made in china and was manufactured in April 2005. I've hardly used the phone for 2 days and already its at the service. As per my view these seem to be hardware related problems and not the firmware. I've updated my firmware from 3.25 to 3.3 but no change in the problems. What is your opinion about my handsets problems are they hardware related or firm ware related. I just can't think what to do, if the nokia people don't do anything about it then i think i may have to sue Nokia for it.
The 6230i arrived about a week ago in South Africa...Was one of the first to receive one...GREAT phone no probs so far, sound is loud and great quality!!!Obviously a longer lasting battery would have been nice.But just charge it when you get home...
