Very nice piece of equip. Got mine for a month or so. Great mp3, radio, acceptable camera, pretty loud sounds. Good design also. Drawbacks : should have larger screen, 256k colors, longer battery life ( main problem ), opening back is always hard, weak keyborad. All in all, excellent !
can any one guide me i want to buy a mobile of nokia.plz tell me which one of the followings is the best(6230i,7610,3230).and i like music very much in phone
plz tell me soon.i'll be very thankful 2 u.
Just got it couple days ago, was comparing between 6230i, 3230, and SE K750i. I used SE T68i and Motorola V878 for the last 3 years. T68i was very user friendly and logical but the reception is quite poor, very often people at the other end can't hear me but I can hear them loud & clear. Motorola was a good looking one but no bluetooth nor IR, missed sms, and worse, screens died after just 1yr, so I'm not going back to Moto again.
For the new phone, I was looking for something w/gd reception and battery life, good connectivity such as bluetooth/IR, sync with Outlook, and reliability are must have for me for business use. Other nice-to-have features like decent camera (1megapix or above), MP3, extra storage, etc are 2ndary.
Although the design on 6230i is nothing flashy like the 3230 or K750i, but it does what it's designed to do. True, K750i has 2 megapix camera, cooler look, very good display, but it seems a bit slower than 6230i. 3230 offers good package to sync with Outlook but the camera is just too slow. Both seem to have greater chance of hanging, although I wouldn't mind the K750i, but considering the previous experience w/SE's reception and higher price, I decided to try out 6230i instead. Right out the box it has met my expectation, very good reception (in areas where I had problem w previous 2 phones), sync w/Outlook was simple w/bluetooth or IR via included software, camera was quite decent for a phone(wasn't expecting 5megapix quality), nice loudspeaker, good MP3 sound w/included earpiece. SMS logic is quite easy, just needed a little getting used to switching from SE & Moto.
Short comings... battery seems to last only 2 days (talked 30mins/day, 3-5sms, 10-15min MP3, sync w/PC, uploading songs etc). The volume key on the left side is a bit difficult to press, otherwise not much complaint. No crash or hanging so far.
I'm waiting for a replacement too of my 6230i, in Bangalore. No pieces available anywhere in the city while the ads in TV channels continue :-) Spoke to the Nokia Concept store and they say that fresh stocks will arrive only by the last week of June/ 1st week of July! Its a pity that such a wonderful model is going thru this horrible phase.
Hey guys, what is all of this with the phone crashing and restarting in "media player"? I want to ask those that have encountered this problem if they where using the phone internal memory or the MMC card (if they had one) i think there is a problem with the shared memory. Is it true?
i dont get it, if you ppl have so much probs with this fone,then return the damn thing and get sumthing else,dont keep moaning about it!!!!
I also have the problem with assigning my ringing tone on my 512MMC card. It always goes back to the default nokia tune. Can this be rectified by software upgrade? Thanks.
Wanna know is there any new firmware for this mobile.. Really wanna know?? please tell me if it does? thank you
Thanks everyone for the information about this phone...I'll get it when the software version is good and stable enough.
At the moment there are some problems with setting up this phone for Push To Talk - the software can't handle it. Take it to a service centre for a free software upgrade and you should be fine to get your PTT settings :)
6230i camera is an average one, and works as well as an average digital camera. pixel shade is a result of lack of light, happens in all average digial cameras. if the picture you took is dark, you can adjust its contrast. just see the options for a photo taken.
my phone firmware version is 3.23 and I described the problems I got with it.
you can find audible alerts under voice commands in: Settings->My shortcuts.
it is possible to add several numbers for one contacts in 6230i; just choose option while viewing a contact and choose "add detail" then "number"!
we got the same version: 3.23
i dont have any problem w/ sounds but my video player! after 13 mins of play, my phone freezes and restarts...
i guess u have to go to the service center and get it upgraded, as what i'd do w/ mine
ijus got it today and it's great! but it is a bit of slow, the 6230 is better
i fall in love with this creation of nokia
thanks nokia bcoz u make me more loveable in my frnds circle
urgent, planning to buy today.
can 6230i record conversion talking in the phone. if yes then upto how much time.
