Exactly, 1,5 day and my battery is drained. I've been using it heavily, that's true, but still I'd prefer a longer standby. My brother's SE K310i (a lower class handset) has a decent battery, equal camera and sometimes faster browsing speed, despite of the fact, that my Nokia has EDGE. F*ck it then. BTW, EDGE switches on automatically, it is, as far as I know, (E)GPRS, so when you see the capital "G" in blinking or static square, know EDGE being on. Someone asked about quad band...you gotta check it out in specs, I think, you must be able to use it in the States, for my old motorola has the same 1900 and it's surely works for USA.
My fw is 3.80, no lags, but sometimes the mp3 player somehow shuts the phone down or at least it hangs, the screen turns off... very strange (it's maybe due to some s*it in playlists: when I don't refresh them, the phone hangs).
Concerning multiple SMS recipients. It looks like it's not possible to send a message to several people simultaneously. I refuse to understand that... It's a f*cking business class phone and it lacks such an important feature... Well done, Nokia, congrats (f*** yoself in the a**)
My phone squeaks in hands :) it's annoying... again, a business phone, but acts like a cheap piece of... of plastic.
The last thing: the camera. Well... does this phone have any? :>
The lastly last thing: my Nokia won't record a phone call, if the folder for recordings is MMC. Moreover, it won't play a tune from the card when a call comes. So, there are some issues in communicating with the card during a call. Bye.
Phone is wonderful- great shape, excellent features, but consumes a lot of power. I do not think I do even 90min talk time everyday but I find myself charging the batteries every 1.5 days. Also it gives a very short warning period. This is a pain!
Hey guys ur phones are slow coz the first firmware on the 6230i was very slow. My phone has version fw 3.88 and its very fast just like my previous nokia 3220, also v 3.88 is the firmware so u can use a 1gb mmc card as well with no probs, u can update the firmware. I know coz my neighbour also has a 6230i with version 3.40 and it has severe lag while mine responds quite fast also restatring is minimized but not eliminated.
ok phone but its very slow, ie after unlocking, checking photo's, its like a slow computer. any suggestions?

i don't have it yet. but a friend's been recommending it. i think i like the phone but my husband is asking if its quadband so i can use it the US. is it quadband if the unit is bought here in the philippines?
My Nokia 6230i phone software works very slow, I mean it makes a big lag. What could i do to fix it? I bought it 2 weels ago, but at the begining everything was clear and worked properly. HELP plz..
It's a great phone! But how do I use edge? The fast internet! Anybody knows?
send to many will let you instantly choose the next name after a message is sent to the first one.. you cant chose multiple recipients but then you dont have to go back to the message option and choose send
I've a problem with my 6230i phone, i was charging my phone and at the same time playing music, after a while i stopped d music and d fone got fully charged about the same time. I disconnected the fone from power and realised there was no network on fone again. I've swapped d sim to anoda fone to be sure its not a sim card issue. D sim came up on anoda fone.It's been like dis 4 abt 8hrs. Since i bought the fone, i've enjoyed it all d way but dis new development is pissing me out. Kindly assist if u av any suggestion as to wot could be the problem.
mimi, I don't think you can use a 2 GB card, cuz people had doubts even about 1 GB card, the latter as I know, works well though. I've got 512 which is enough to my mind, especially when I get bored of those mp3 pretty quickly.
Allen, it's not a Symbian, if you want such, wait for 6290, that'll be a terrific clamshell (despite its design).
Now I know, how to refresh the mp3 playlist, but still the player sux, since it has a very poor option to forward tracks... you hold ffwd >> for some time and it skips the track, I hate that, so I decided to split large mp3, that is to cut them into small pieces so that it wouldn't repeat.
Battery is a total piece of shit, lasted for 2 days at most.
When you people speak about the firmware, don't call it software, the latter is used for sync'ing the unit with a PC, the former - is that stuff that u cannot install by yoself, so don't even try, unless you work with mobiles or so. I use Oxygen Phone Manager, great proggy. The phone is fabulous, I've just realized that I gotta read the manual thouroughly, cuz have discovered some functions, which I either entirely don't get or at least preferred a systematic explanation of them, cuz to use a phone in trial n error method ain't very effective. Great Nokia. So folks, do you know, how to make it record a phone conversation just by pushing one key? I'll tell you only if u ask :)) Bye.

everytime i plug in my ad-15 audio adapter, it says enhancement not supported. it was workin fine before this. can anyone help me??
hi allen, I'm sorry to tell you that the nokia 6230i is not a symbian phone. as you have mentioned that you prefer SE that Nokias and if you are planning to purchasing this one, I'm sure you'll not be let down.
I have a question. Does this phone have Symbian OS ? If so, what version? I know that it's a very stupid question, but I am a Sony Ericsson user, because I find SE phones more practical and cheaper than Nokias. Now I am interested in buying an 6230i and that's why I want to know that. Thanks in advance.
hi freinds. I own this phone for the past 6-7 months and feel its the best piece to own. Excellent phone - has all the current technology including a MMC slot, bluettoth connectivity, usb connectivity, stereo fm radio, and a good music player as well.
However, have one question. Hope someone will be able to help me with it. Earlier i had the nokia 2600 phone in which i could add a signature to all the text messages sent. How can I do that with this phone? I'm unable to find any settings regarding the text messaging signatures.
