ive owned the phone for just one week and despite many critisms listed on these pages its been absolutely fantastic! couldn't think of one thing i'd change, save perhaps its dated external appearance,
This phone has given a big problem when i received for the very beginning-there was not light at all, all black out.So, now i am waiting for my replacement and I have been waiting for a week.Though, I was offered by the shop proprietor to switch to other models of phone like Nokia 6230 or Nokia 7610.Should I stick to my Nokia 6230i or go for Nokia 6230 or Nokia 7610 which is very popular, and can be seen every where you go.Thank you..
to sincronize with a pc :
1.works great with win xp + sp1--->usb 2.0
2.install driver for usb 2.0
3.install driver for cable dku-2 or dku-5(go to nokia.com and search it)
try it yourself it's very easy
Alo.. Can anyone help me ...why my earphone (handfree) cant used?Cant hear any sound when i play radio...mp3..thank
Video hang: If I use Nokia's 64Mb MMC card, video always hang. But it rarely hangs when I use Apacer 512Mb MMC card. So, Maybe it's the quality of the MMC card, not the phone. Oh, also avoid pressing too many buttons when the video starts. Let it run for a few seconds before pressing anything... (these are my personal observation, so, I cant guarantee anything).
Ringtone: From my learning in 6230, I always put (or Move) the ringtone that I use to the phone memory, NOT the MMC. I never trust the extra'route' of the phone having to go to MMC to select the ringtone because when someone calls, it's a split-second operation. So, always use the phone memory for ringtone.
PC Synch: I can't help on this - too many variables that could fail a PC-link. I did not face this problem thru IR and BT.
The Nokia N-Series will cost 3 times the Nokia 6230i. So if you think you can afford it then no question of buying 6230i. Another thing is that the release of the N series is expected in the second quarter of 2005 and in India it will release even later. So if you really need to buy a phone at once then go for the 6230i. Thats it.
6230i is full of features & functionalities, too kool. shall i get this or wait for new N70 ?!! im in india..any updates or comments ??

I've just bought this phone and pass my Nokia 3230 to my wife. Both phones are great!
However, I heard that there's a way to transfer the games downloaded to the Application Folder to the Games folder. Could someone help!
Zitron set should have a Zitron sticker under the battery, on the charger and headset. On the box, no Zitron sticker. You will also get some documents of warranty as well as Nokia M'sia invitation card (something like that). I suggest you going to "Mobile World" forum for this as they have a Zitron guy in the forum.
Despite so many issues I read, my 6230i has been working 100% fine since day 1 - in fact my old 6230 too was working fine which I hv sold off. My wife's 6230 is also perfect from day one, and she's still using it till today.
The 6230i, by many miles, is a GREAT phone. Hardware wise - perfect! On the software side, I do have a list of feedback to make the 6230i a BETTER and GREATER phone:
1) Smaller font please (for Note, To-do, SMS, Web Browser). See 6230 as benchmark!
2) Scrap the control configuration for Radio and Music Player. A direct control button using the navi-button is the best way. See 6230 as benchmark!
3) 'SEND' button when viewing files in the gallery should be mapped to sub-menu "send via IR, BT or Multimedia'... NOT just 'multimedia.
4) Galley quick link navigation e.g. "Save To"... change it back to "Open". See 6230 ver. 3.25 as benchmark.
5) Menu navigation should be faster. See 6230 as benchmark!!
6) BLUETOOTH MENU should be available for the "Right Button" shortcut. See 6230 as benchmark!!
These inputs could bring the near-perfect 6230i to PERFECTION!
everywhere i read about this Nokia 6230i, i can only find bad things... i have a question...does nokia do something to improve the quality of this phone? i will try it tomorow... all i can say for now... beautyfull design!!! and a very good camera! i hope my batery will last longer then other ...hope so...:)
i purchased the same and found something funny .. when we select the ringtone and sms tone it is quite clear and audiable , but when a actual call comes the volume is reduced to more than half .... i had to return the same for service ....
Please Help ....
I need to install 9 MB java application on my 6230i, how to do that. If i do with Nokia Application Installer it only takes around 900 Kb of application.
Thank in Advance
i recently got one of these and have had to have it replaced twice already, once for frezzing and another because the bluetooth wouldnt work...apart from that best phone i've ever had
go for the best (nokia 6230i) and forget the rest. it's a perfect phone of all times & a masterpiece of all mobilephones.
Nice piece of art!
Well Done Nokia!
This is a complete phone!
It has all u realy want from a mobile whoi is not a smartphone...
try uninstalling everything, and then, load the drivers for the cable first, then load the softaware, that should take care of ur problem.
