Great phone, but would have loved if they left some of the old ringtones or maybe added a few more, not enough as standard....
the phone is good for people with money well i have money this phone is garbage if its worth alot how come they sell for 200 pounds on e bay brand new lol its made of steel doh penny dropped yet yes steel so now tell me its good looking its that heavy could shot put with it lol only costs nokia 100 pounds per unit so you keep telling yourself its worth it lol 6230i in diff case fact
If you want a phone with functionalities, get a Pocket Pc. This is a phone for people with money so... This phone is very good and very good looking
the fingerprints do smudge but it doesnt look bad it looks ok know one can notice it!
To anybody whos had this for a while - does the fingerprint smudging on the case stop? On the 8800 silver smudges were visible when the phone was new then it stopped. Does this continue to smudge? Would have loved a silver version of this.
this fone is pathetic my lil bro droped it and it screen cracked so much for being break proof
great phone; looks very good and it's worth the money; the battery life is not a problem because you can carry the other one in your pocket; ellegance is the best word for describing this phone; i'll just sell my p990i and buy this one 'cause smartphones are the most unnecessary phones ever made (thet're big, heavy, and UGLY);
this fone sucks my lil bro dropd an broked its scrreen jus from a hieght of about a feet
wolf in sheeps clothing people!
great looking, but there is a reason why it comes with two batteries. and not all that easy to use as are nokias a major selling point.
Hey, i really think that the 8800 is real cool to have,the only problem with it is that it does not have a memory card!!! I have the 8800 in silver, it has great sound but with very little memory!!I dig the 8800 because its not easy to break so i can use it as self defence against a person..I don`t find any problem with the battery because I charge it over night and the battery life is up to a day depending on what you using it for..
i have the 8801,and it sucks,battery wise, sure it looks good. some people only buy this phone for looks but that's pretty much what you get..it comes with two batteries for a reason right..kinda disappointed with mine though
I´ve just found out that a new version of this phone will be released. It´s going to be 8800 Sirocco Gold Edition. It as the same features as the normal Sirocco but it as a gold "bath". Were in Portugal it´s gonna cost €1499. Please comment.
people need to get real this phone is awfull ,its not selling thats why its only 250 pounds on e bay brand new sim free and thats why its free now on contract, as for those who say its the look so if i buy a car for 100.000 pounds and it looks good well i would be cheesed off if the engine was a 12 cc engine inside thats what the sirocco is a lada in a sports car body and thats a fact i bought 3 of these sim free when they first came out was lucky to get rid of 2 of them but at a huge loss nobody wanted them it should have had top of range camera top of range batt life this phone people laugh at it my 3rd one will not c the light of day again so you people keep telling yourself its the best your paying 500 pounds plus for a case nokia pay 65 pounds for them lol now who has egg on your face and when you pull it out people are not thinking wow they are thinking you have been ripped off so stop trying to say the price was worth it look it up for your self how much this phone costs to make lol nokia cant get rid thats why they have launched a gold one lol its all fact its a 6230i in a different case thats fact . and like i said its now free on contract lol
The Sirocco is an elegant handset marketed at the trendy fashion concious 21-35 age group and has the mainstream spec that your average user requires how ever when you add to that rather mediocer spec some of the best build quality on the planet and styling that looks like its come straight from ferrari you have a hugely sought after exclusive handset. 'A true must have for the 21st century conesour!'
I have owned them since 1st 8800 launch. The Sirocco is a significant improvement over 8800 Great looking phone, great feel. Reception is terrible in US because networks do not offer software support for Sirocco. Keep in mind there is nosupport whatsoevre from any network and Nokia does not back warranty for the Sirocco in the US 100% guarantee that you are on your own.
all u haters out there! dont hate the phone coz u cant have it, fair enough, its not a music phone or a camera phone, but it's a BUSINESS PHONE, made for people with money!!!if u want a camera phone get a sony ericsson k800i! or nokia N73, if u want a music phone get a walkman sony ericsson! W880i! If u want a smart classy phone, get a NOKIA 8800 SIROCCO!!!!
This phone is intended for users who prefer aesthetics value rather than functionalities. Anyway, not all phone users use WIFI, GPS, etc.. Most phones users use only voice, sms and mms. And this phone has basic functions, but when look at it, it outweighs even the latest, most expensive PDA phone.
I think this ones a rich boys toy kinda things. I bet a feature rich model will roll out as soon as one buys this. I bought a 8910i and now this ones out. Now if i buy this the next model with good features will be launched. I better switch to regular feature rick phone like I-mat e or O2.
