i bought the nokia 6230i about a week and a bit ago nad i am over the moon with the phone the quality of camera is brilliant the video is good but can sometimes be a bit blurred if not used right . the only problem i hav is the battery life the battery only last for 2days tops without being charged whereas my nokia 6230 lasted a whole week without being charged. But i would still advise anyone who is thinking about buying the phone 2 BUY it!!
P.S. Please...if you want your opinion to be taken seriously....at least try to spell properly...a few typos are acceptable...but some of the text used here is embarrasing.
The features are good....but this phone is too buggy the moment.
Some design issues (functionality). If the bugs are ironed out it would be quite a nice phone and full of features....not much point if a lot of the features are bugged though.
Big disappointment is the fact that it comes with software but NO DKU2 cable...so the software is useless unless you have bluetooth or infrared ports (like a laptop). What's even more alarming is that the cable is $55AU....just for a USB cable.
Overall, I'd wait if you really want this phone....if you can't look at another brand/model.
i am just postin a message to inform potential 6230i buyers that not all of the fones have these problems and it is only a smal number. do not be put off by these complaints as i have played with this fone and jus ordered it. i think it has to be one of the best goin.well dun nokia. also jus for the record, dont believe them wen ppl say the cam is rubbish.its very gud and the screen shows this well
Hi, I have firmware v. 03.23 and my phone has a problem- you see , me and a friend of mine bought 2 x 6230i , and we both have the same problem- when ringing (sms tone too) it's ringing like it's set for "ascending" , but it's not, so at the first 3,4 secs. I hardly hear it, then suddenly, it's ringing on the level I have seted (maximum level)
Sniperz. My phone's software version is v 3.25 released March 31, 2005. I got it from one of the hundreds of cell phone stalls at the mezzanine of shoppesville. I guess I was lucky because it just got in an hour before I bought it. The headset works perfectly fine even with the radio on. Try to haggle if ever you plan to get one. I believe you can get it slightly less than the prive when I got mine. Good Luck :-)
Can anyone tell me if the DKU-2 cable comes with the Nokia 6230i or not. Thanks.
Mono mp3s in many phones can be great with the recommened 192kbps or 200kbps over Mp3 quality
tat would be loud and clear.but this is one of the phone tat provides stereo so its gotta be good~! Mono are ways to save battery ,stereo still wastes more battery becoz of the sound quality . Anything tat matters is Mono player are good quality too Stereo has its good ^^ So its ur handphone to choose but most nokia use is Mono but its good in quality so its never a miss
Rich, may we all know the software version of your nokia 6230i. Have you tried the headset working on radio instead of loud speaker, how about the sound quality and on what store did you bought it. many thanks
Just wanted to share some feedback regarding this phone which replaced my 6600. I got mine here in the Philippines three weeks ago for about US$ 340. It also came with a one year warranty from nokia care. I've read about bugs and stuff about this phone but so far mine's been working perfectly fine after having tried most of the functions. It responds much faster compared to my 6600. Screen resolution, albeit small, is very good. Photo quality is excellent once downloaded and printed at Kodak. Sound quality is excellent even too loud when set to maximum. Although I miss a few of the functions the 6600 has, I'm very much satisfied with this phone and serves my needs well. If allowable, try out the unit first to see if everything works before purchasing. It was fortunate for me the sales person allowed me to try it out first before I decided to buy.
Hi, is there a stand alone software you can use to play mp3's on the 6230i. A java application maybe?. The sound quality on the phone is amazing. Had a 3230 and returned it the next day.
Which one should i buy ? 6230 or 6230i, is it worthy to buy 6230i....advice plz
Andy 4ever, can you help me list out any problems you have encountered in using this phone?
i am from Malaysia. can you tell have you encountered any problems in using NOkia 6230i?
should i buy ap or original?
can anyone tell me should i buy Nokia 6230i of 6230?which one is a better choice?
i cant comment on it yet,but what i can comment on is the crap service providers in South Africa,damn they really suck.this phone isnt even available yet here!!does anyone know when it will be??
I was excited to received my unit. However, I requested for a replacement coz the LCD appeared to be "unstable" which is a sore to the eye. I just hope that it's just one defective in a million of 6630i units.
i baught it today n it works perfect...it have evrythng ppl want a perfect one n 6230i iz all over best n perfect small display not a big deal..execpt camera its beter then 7610 n 3230...i lov ma baby 6230i...
Mine was also made in China. Whether d problem is in d software or in its hardware component, Nokia center assure me that they'll be able 2 fix it & I believe them 'cuz they're d one who manufactured it. I can have my fone back this sunday. ^_^
Luv u Kewl! Heheheh! ***mwaaah*** @ kewl
