Good in the looks and features department. Uneven distribution of lights in the keypad and is priced at a bit higher. But, Compared with other phones in this category, Nokia 6230i is simply the best.
Y does every1 have diff opinions on the camera?every1 has the same phone,nothing more or nothing less!some say its good,some say its bad.iam soon to be an owner of this phone and whether i listen or read bad opinions about it,iam still gonna take it on contract!
Can anyone tell me whether some addition softwares or application such as dictionary, Real Player, and so on can be installed in Nokia 6230i? Thank you...
can u tell me how long de battery last in standby?
Can anyone of you tell me whether Nokia 6230i can be used as a pocket dictionary ?
I own one of these. It is a fantastic phone! Its got everything I need. however, the only bad thing is the battery life. It lasts for about 20hrs, when using the features non-stop. It charges up fully in around 1hr 50 mins. Its even the first phone in the U.K. to have a push-to-talk feature. I highly recommend this phone.
A very interesting review. I am still the proud owner of a 6230, I think its nearly flawless. I use it to take sequential photos more than I use it as a phone, it has taken more than 23,000 photos and the picture is still good. I am looking for a replacement soon, what I'd be interested in is a faster camera where I don't need to press 2 buttons. Does anybody know if I can get a java application that will work the camera, so take pictures automatically in other words?
I bought mine at RM1490 for Zitron set. Reason: Free software upgrade for 1 year at any Nokia Service Center. And it only takes 20-30mins for Nokia to do it. My old 6230 was AP set, each software upgrade costs RM30 if done at Nokia Center. If done at the seller place, it takes 2days to 1 week. So, Zitron set is the best bet - i learnt it thru the hard way.
My phone is stable as a big rock. If your phone hangs during multimedia playback from the MMC card, then try changing the card to another brand. Make sure it's a reputable brand, not a cheap one. See if it still hangs. What i know is, the Nokia 64Mb bundled card is not good. Video files make the phone hangs. My Apacer 512Mb MMC gives me no problem at all. Even with mega huge video file of 100Mb.
Agree with you that once the picture (taken with 1.3Mp camera) is uploaded in the PC, the image is not so clear. Even though is look FLAWLESS thru the phone display. I hope Nokia fixes this in the next firmware update.
But, in truth, I use a 5Mp Digital Camera to capture pictures. THe phone camera is just for MMS, in terms of MMS, the matter how big your Megapixel is, you still need to limit the picture size to max 300Kb to be able to send it out. So, frankly, I don't care much about the 1.3Mp camera. But Nokia shouldn't ignore this complaint as this IS an EXPENSIVE phone.
The display of 6230i, you HAVE to see to believe - it's one of the BEST of the lot. I had the chance to compare with SE K700i, the Nokia wins hands-down. It's the main reason why I dumped by 6230 for 6230i.
Does anybody know if there is a recognised fault with the 6230i (in relation to compatibility with craddled carkits) and if there is any software updates that might remedy this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
I'm pretty pleased with my 6230i, but the battery does seem to run out pretty fast.
I am Christine. I would like to know the price of RM 1490 you had paid for your Nokia 6230i is a zitron distributed original set or just an approved product(AP)? If your set is from zitron distributed original set, what makes you go for original set than ap set?
Though I am a strong supporter of Nokia Phone as I only buy Nokia phones no others. Just upgraded from my 3230 to this 6230i, I think Nokia need to come up with a better and a more stable software for this 6230i. My phone sometime hanged and need to take out the battery and on off the phone. Camera quality is not as good as it claimed 1.3mega.
Though all the new functions is much better tthan 6230 but 6230 are more stable, hopefully Nokia understand this problem and rresolve it a.s.a.p if not, 6230i will be problematic and balue will drop.
What i like most is it size and packed with all the necessary features that we couldn't asked for more. Nokia 6230i is still my best coice.
I experience locking problems with my v. 3.23 one.It just hangs and the only solution is to switch off/on. Does anyone had this problem too?
can anyone tell me the response of this phone when capturing a still image?does it take a few moments before the image is captured?how long then?is this phone good when capturing moving images?comparing 6230i to 7610,which has the better video function?how about the 65k colour screen compared to other phones like Samsung or even SonyEricsson?really appreciate to those who can provide me these infos,thanx.. ;)
I too having experiencing the same problem on the ringing and message tones not once but twice. (Sold my first set, thought it was some phone problem. Bought a new set and the problem repeat and now live with it)
What I do, set the ringing and message tones to longer tones instead of short ones otherwise it can hear. Beside this, another problem- although it's a 1.3 megapixel cam but sometime some pictures not very sharp and clear (can see the different when you upload to PC) and also night mode very white base background. Last time, I used my 6230 (though only VGA) but does not have this problem at all.
Hope Nokia can improves all the problem as I'm quite dissappointed and looking to change to Sonyericsson Z800i of the problems cannot be improved later.
Anyone fr Singapore had bought/tried? (any feedback, softw version?, etc.) A bit put off by the current price of S$538 (cw StarHub 2yr line) and that there's not much advert. Seems like it's not tat 'popular', more so with the various bugs, short batt life, slow performance, etc that has been reported here and there. And there's also the impending SonyEricsson K750i that is putting off, not just me but many's decision.
So far, I've done so many experiments on my 6230i. The only problem when the phone hangs is when playing video from the bundled-Nokia MMC card. After I copied the same video file to my Apacer 512Mb MMC card, no problem. So, my conclusion is, the std MMC card that comes with the phone does not have quick reading speed. So, it's nothing to do with the phone, just the MMC card.
My phone (ver. 3.25) is great. No problem at all! No bug at all. 6230 is still one the greatest, but once anybody has seen 6230i's display... there's no looking back anymore!
Bought mine few weeks ago at RM1490. Trade-in my 6230 at RM700.
Cud sum1 PPLLEEAASSEE tell me when this phone will be available in South Africa?? Please help..

Thank you for positive opinions regarding my dream phone, Nokia 6230i. Though, I still have some questions in mind that desperately need an answer to each of them.
1. How much is the original hand set of Nokia 6230i that you had just bought a few days ago?
2. which phones do u prefer to own, Nokia 6230 or Nokia 6230i?
