NO! u cannot connect it to PC. There is no DATA CABLE for it. IF U want to transfer anything connect it thru WAP Browser. U can save pic on ur SE ACCOUNT created on their web site & then can transfer it to ur phone thru WAP.
Help me! i am not being able to connect j230i with my PC. I have bought DCU-60 datacable but while I am connecting with PC displaying a message "Unsupported accessory". I ahve tested with more than 6 data cables but no result. Please suggest if anybody has connected this mobile with pc.
as said earlier look wise motto scores more
feature wise both have more or less same features u can get details on there respective sites.
but few imp. point to take into consideration while making ur choice......
1. no speaker phone for motto. se j230i has speaker but not as good as nokia 6030
2. motto boasts of having 65k colours & has tft/lcd screen, even after having this feature display is really poor similar to 4096k display. se j230i has stn display & 65000k display (in grid view display is not good, but in single icon menu display is quite good)further there are many freebees like themes,wallpapers(also moving), ringtones on se website.as per my findings se score more in display part even though it has stn display.both phone have 128x128 pixels/ display. in daylight/ sunlight u cannot view se j230i display as it is stn(for standby) & dull if keys activated.
3. fm sound clarity/quality--- good for motto excellent for se j230i
fm sound reception --- poor for motto again excellent for se j230i
4 moto has wap 2 /xhtml browser & se has wap1.2.1 (i don't have any idea, but i think moto will be bit faster) any one who have this knowledge please share. i have used wap on my j230i speed & download is quite good.
5 battery back up--- for moto upto 340hrs standby & talktime upto 9hrs 30min.(as per manufacturers)fm consumes lot of battery.
for se stand by upto 280hrs & talktime upto 6hrs(as per manufacturer)
i am using my se j230i without charging for 2 whole days(fm for 3 hrs per day)
for prolong battery use keep the keypad tones of, brightness to zero, do not fiddle .
further go through my review on se j230i on this site & on www.mouthshut.com
if fm is not ur choice(fm least imp.) then go for nokia 6030 everything is good i.e. battery, memory about 2-3 mb, downloadable games also
if u want only good display go for samsung c230(no idea about fm),battery life is pathetic,ir reception does not works, good memory 2-3 mb, can download games etc..etc..
moto c168 (radio motto) & sony ericsson j230i are close compititors,but as per earlier comparision mentioned sony ericsson
j230i rules & out performs moto c168 (radio motto)without any doubts in minds
moto looks good (thats the reason it is appealing many consumers),but it is is not sturdy (badily built)back cover over a period of time makes a cracking sound, glossy colours on cheap plastic body will fade gradually, poor headsets provided compared to other models in moto category, headset looks cheap.
only because of cheap price people are running for it... my sincere advice to them please pay few hundreds more enjoy the pleasure of se j 230i.you will never regret after using it listining to its fm sound clarity.no other phone in this category will give u such an outstanding fm sound quality & reception.i can bet on this one.
The phone is gr8... bought a week back... @ 3425/-
FM no doubt rocks... ring tones packed with it... r goood too.. its the phone u should buy, if u dont want to shell out more money and keep ur life just rocking... well I was Nokia... for around 1 1/2 year.. and to get into Sony was little awkward to me.. but within few hours.. i get use to it..
keypads.. will look not so good... but as said.. "U dont get everything for anything..."
motto looks good & has slim body
Display of motto is poor though it has TFT/LCD Display.It has NO SPEAKER .FM reception is poor for motto. it has cheap
looking headset.Quality of sound is better than other phones in this range except SE J230i.I am using J230i for last 4 months without any prob.it has an amazing sound quality.Please refer to my review on SE J230i on this site OR on www.mouthshut.com under electronics/ cellphones/sony ericsson/J230i . THis will solve ur confusion between the two phones.
for further clarification u can mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org

Attractive and modern look
Handsfree speaker with best sound quility
all these thing available in suitable prices
it is possible only with j230
i shall be very thankful to Sony Ericsson
best wishes with best regards
this phone is good and also very cheap the fm radio is rocking.
15 days have passed since I bought this phone. I bought it for Rs. 3,400/-
Compact, light and handy design 10/10
At this price it has all the features like good battery life, FM of great quality... bass, treble..., GPRS, picture call, speaker phone.
Once when I was hearing FM, I recieved a call. When I answered it the person on that side could not properly hear when I was talking through the headset otherwise the sound quality is excellent.
The Display and color scheme is truly awesome!
Then once when I was listening FM, I thought of playing games simultaneosly (the games are boring! Quadra Pop and Minigolf :( ) But then FM was turned off. So i didn't play game. I thought of sending MMS. Then when I removed the headset before exiting radio... the phone hanged. I broke my head to open the back cover and removed and placed the battery.
Its speaker is ok, not so loud.
In daylight the screen is not clearly visible whereas in dark it acts as a torch, believe me!
Else, excellent phone. Text messaging consists of animation, picture, sound. Phonebook has a function that when someone will call the picture of the person will appear if added and assigned to the entry.
Comparing with Radio Moto C168, its competitor, SE J230i doesn't contain workd clock and battery meter. But as I'm not going china, Japan or Russia it is ok and for battery meter you ask... the battery indication on the standby mode provides a detailed 5 levels with color code like when 2 levels are remaining then yellow color 1 then red and else green. So that's also not the problem.
Therefore, I would recommend this phone against C168 as its display is disgusting whereas J230i's display and all other functions are impressive.
As on today 4th Aug 2006
Radio Moto C168 Rs. 2,990
SE J230i Rs. 3,400
So I don't see why SE J230i should not be bought.
Nice phone :)
i bought this cell for fm & no doubt its fm is awosome, one line for it... out of this world...i have been around with other cell phones of the same prize tag... for example Nokia 2300, 6030 have mono fm and of average quality, but Fm of SE J230i is Excellent...as it ends the limits... other features r also good... sound quality in earpiece is excellent... incall timers & call summary...sms delivery reports...overall a very good mobile... one more thing moto C168 has poor fm quality comapare to this cellphone other features of moto are not worthy ...very very bad display... cheap plastic body ... but J230i is the best buy... i recommend it for all who want a fm radio phone.
this is senkumar, i planned to go for motorolla c168 but after reading your opinion i am confused little bit now, is sej230i showing the call duration when we are speaking to others and how many numbers we can store in its phone memory. motoc168 will give a signal before completion of every minute and it shows the call duration also.
t & re
this phone is great - at first i really thought it would be rubbish - but its fantastic, definately worth the high price tag
I am using J230i since from one month. The sound of FM is low when we switch to load speaker mode. So In my opnion sound should be increased and memory also should be increased. More sound clearity should be there in the set.
hi i am atunu.i have forgot to tell one thing that se battery is also good.going 2 days without recharging listening to fm daily 3 hours.moto c-168 also gives more or less same.
Yesterday i bought this set i was going for Nokia but then i thought about j230i its cheaper and also got better radio but i am facing a problem with this set..
Now the problem is i m from Pakistan so we store our Cell nos like this for example this is Ali's No 0300-555555 this is how its saved in phone book but when we receive a sms it comes like this +92300555555 the phone doesn't recognize this no as alis no if u dun save the no with full country code.. i have never faced prob like this with any other set and if u save the no with country code +92300555555 then when Ali calls me his cli shows 0300555555 and the phone doesn't recognize this no..
Anyone else facing this kind of problem ?
I am using this phone now from 3 months now.
I Bought the SE J230i Coz of Stereo FM, & no doubt FM rocks.
I'd Few problems with the reception in this.
Then I sent the phone to serivce & an SE service center, & they said that it is because this phone has an old software in few sets, so they has callibarated the software & this showed some instent positive effects, first the FM volume on Speaker has increased same with the speaker vol. of a call. The reception problem is with some perticular network mostly with IDEA & DOLPHIN users, as i was using an Idea SIM thus was facing this trouble, but I am not sure about this fact. I am still using IDEA but after calliberation reception problam is not that much. Well over all With SE J230i my experience was - average. If you want to have one go for it coz FM is AWSOME.......
motto c168 has slightly good battery life than se j230i. display of motto is very poor even thou it has LCD/TFT display. FM Reception is poor for motto. sound is good (bass & treble are Equally poised)
SONY ERICSSON J230i is Overall EXCELLENT PHONE. Excellent FM reception & sound.No other Phone in this Segment can match its sound Quality.(Good BAss) (Ican bet on this one).
thou it has STN Display, it looks much better than motto 168.(I have compared it)
Only draw back is its looks(but not really bad)
I am using it for 4months without any problem
Battery lasts for 2 whole day (using FM for about 3hrs a day)
Further u can go thru my review for Sony ERICSSON J230i on this site or on mouthshut .com
QUERIES & questions ARE ALWAYS WELCOME..
U CAN MAIL ME ON GIVEN ADDRESS
