i really like this phone, has all what i want. radio, mp3, camera, speaker, voice recorder, complete connectivity... got lucky!!!
I think the phone's function rocks! But those people out there who are unhappy with your phone, your warranty is not a bogus one!!! Go down to the Nokia Care Service Centre nearest to you and you can tell them to do a software reflash for you, hardware problems can also be solved with the replacing of LCDs, Speakers etc. This phone is fine after you service it... For those first batch phones. And the latest software currently is V.3.70, and you can go down, tell the staff your problems, and let them solve it for you guys! Don't give up on this phone just because it hangs temporarily.
I have to agree with ChargerMan. If you're lucky, you'll get a great package. If NOT, then it's SUX! I have the same problem with ChargerMan, the battery doesn't last long, around 40h the best with Low Usage. It gets worse if I charge it with the Fast Charger. Having low/no signal also eats battery.
I believe there's power management failure on this product. Not all, but it's quite a lot to see here. The battery is actually fine, just the power management system in it. For my phone, when the battery level gets down, the screen light on for 5-10 seconds.
THE BAD THING : I have sent complaint letters to Nokia Asia Pacific and also Nokia Headquarter in Finland, and they DIDN'T DO Anything about it. Not to mention the local Nokia office.
My recommendation, just stay away from this phone.. it's one of the Nokia greatest phone but yet also one with the most failure product. I think I'll just sell it in a few months after some new models coming. SE K750i/W800i looks great but I'm kinda not into SE.
good phone - but not designed for people who use the PC to connect to it for everything!!! i had 8310 previously and enjoyed the PC Suite features of browsing messages when the phone is not connected, 6230i doesn't allow that.
you cannot browse anything if the phone is not connected - so if you loose your phone you are stuffed - nothing on the PC you can access.
the calendar view is ok - but lacks the daily view that 8310 had - that was much better - showing birthdays etc in small icons.
the PC Suite folder "Nokia Phone Browser" shows up under all profiles of the computer - this is crap - if there is more than one profile on a PC then this is not a good idea.
no way to upgrade or get messages from the old phone to the new phone or software.
for people using PC Suite not recommended at all.
PS: This observation is just from 2 days using it!!! Im sure there is more to come.
Software fault?? I've had this model replaced 3 times now as the ringtone becomes very soft (practically inaudible). Patient enough to try and resolve this issue one last time before exchanging for a different model.
Another model with same/better capabilities??
Hi again.. it's me The Charger Man again. I'm forget to tell you more information about this SUCKS 6230i. The MMS WONT working properly even you've already setting the connection.
Though this mobile is full of features!!! It's totally volatile!! Note properly tested with all the features working simulteneously..
bluetooth, gprs is BIG problem...still not fixed....i suggest go for SonyEricsson 750i instead!!!
I am sat here waiting for my 3rd replacement. i have lots of different problems with each phone. I only bought it to keep in contact with daughter at university, it doesn't even allow mw to access name list i got the last hand set at 13.45 friday by 14.15 it all went wrong!!Still not allowed a different style as different problems each time - wake up orange - not my fault - i heard so many good reports about this 6230i & really looked forward to using it - be warned...
I am from Iran , I have this mobile phone 6230i, the features are excellent, but the below are disadvantages:
1.The Video quality is not so good.
2.You can not upgrade or add software.
3.there is no software with phone package for converting the 3gp to other video formats. you should buy it seprately.
4.there is no cover for the camera lens, so it may be not clean when you intend to take photos.
5.it doeant have answering machine.
6.you can not dial the recived call easily, and first you shall go to the received calls and then call the number.
the advantages that i like are :
1.small size, Radio, good sound recorder with good sound quality,
yo guyz does anyone know where can i get the englih-english dictionary? does it even exist? the one in my phone, english-chinese dictionary arent helping me at all man, i dunno chinese!
Hi.. everybody.. remember me The Charger Man? The man who always bring the charger beside the 6230i. For all off you: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!The batery & the power system is SUCKS!!!
i got 256mb memory card on my nokia but in the phone it only shows 243 as the total memory and yet i only got 231 mb and it says that its full!!
The phone is brilliant..I use it extensively and think its probably the best feature packed phone... However, some things remain lacking.. Could someone please inform me about the following:
1) While watching movies thru MMC card (3GGP)..How can i resume playback after (lets say 30mins).. are there any FF/REW buttons, cause I could find any
2) is there a way to read huge quantities of text(lets say an e-book quantity of 300KB) ..Iv tried to save thru messages, but the maximum text of 3KB can be held in one messg.
Wud appreciate some help.
I am from the UK. I Have this phone. If anyone is thinking to buy the Nokia 6230 it is aexcellent buy . It has so many features to use and it a sophisticated looking phone. You won't regret buying it anyway. I haven't despite a few minor nagging things with the phone.
I have learnt how to use all its features such as 'send to many' the editing feature, organising the gallery folders etc and it is really an excellent phone and a nice size too. It is rather a classy phone to be honest. I have made a personal album with one folder, a home folder which I can show to family members when I visit them. a greeting folder for my collection of what ever time of the year greetings . All prepared. The memory card is certianly a handy feature.
Troublesome spots :
Some times It has gone off on it's own a couple of time but if you just close it and reopen it, it's okay again. If anyone has any problems regarding it not recharging too, properly especially after a while , it may be time to replace the battery. When I replaced the battery , it was okay again and still is up to now
The cover was extremely difficult to get off at first and I was really mad with it, nothing get a lady more madder than to have to break her fingers nails each time to change the cover. Anyway as the saying goes: ' practice makes perfect' I can now easily remove it. I woudn't want to go through that again though!
I have learnt how to use all its features such as 'send to many' the editing feature, organising the gallery folders etc and it is really an excellent phone and a nice size too. It is rather a classy phone to be honest. I love the feature of adding an image to the contacts list. You may even add a pic that you can identify with them, my friend loves cats, so her image is a pic of a kitten hehe.
For effective use of the camera, pictures are best taken in good lighting areas.
One things that bugs me is , that I can't find any clip arts for the phone , where on earth do you get them? Nokia's own collection of a wine glass and devils horns ( think they are lol) are not exactly pics with which I want to edit a pic…. have to say they are misers regarding the choice of clip arts :o. Tsk tsk tsk! Come on Nokia, you can be a bit more generous!
Apart from those little troublesome things, the phone is really very good and fun to use.
hi everyone, i have this problem on my phone nokia 6230i "especially in images": when i connect the phone to pc via cable and transfer the images i took via camera, the images are not shown clearly on the pc and they look unclrear. n.b. my phone's software is t-mobile. ok thanks
nokia 6230iis da best fone eva it has great pcamera qulity its battery is the best i had a motorola i had to charge every 10 sec this fone is so small and jam paked with features sound quity is awesome and loud enogh its awesome i have movies on my fone and tv shows
to fotis 'operation failed' means that the video didnt send properly or it didnt connect properly with the other device.
This phone is rubbish. I have had it replaced 3 times. The ring tone switches itself down to ascending for no reason.My next phone the bluetooth wouldn't work. Now my last phone it has wiped the voice dialling messages off.It's to slow.
Come on Nokia i've buying your phones for years.
