New Games on 6230??

I have downloaded over 1000 different Java games for my brand new 6230 (.JAD and .JAR). When I send them to my phone via IR, it says "Format Not Supported". What is the format of the games/programs that I can put on this phone?

Buying this phone from Amazon

So I just had a chat with a Cingular agent - who was trying to convince me that it is better in my interest to buy the phone from them directly than going with a third party. Apparently he cant tell me why - but if I did my due diligence I would figure out its better with them.

The way I see it is
Buy from Cingular with 2 year contract
Cost : $139

Buy from amazon (rebate does NOT require 2 year contract - requires a ONE YEAR contract)
Cost : -$50
Problem : AMazon website does not allow me say that I don't want a 2 year but only a 1 year contract.

Buy from (with 1 year contract)
Cost : $79

I don't care about insurance on the phone and all other such crap. I want the phone cheap - with as small a contract as ...

MMC Question!!!! Help Please!!!!!!!!!

I have searched the forums, and I cannot seem to find the answer to this question anywhere:

What is the largest MMC Card that I can put in my phone? I just got the 6230, and I was reading the owners manual and the getting started manual, and they both say different things. The Getting Started Manual says that I can only put a 128MB card in the phone. The Owners Manual says that I can put a 256MB Card in the phone. I know there are ones as big as 1GB. How big of a card can the phone handle??? Please help. Thanks.

Looking for some help for legal music there a service which offers the "aac" format that works with the Nokia Audio manager? If not, is there a service/software that converts itunes downloads? Any other ideas for an easy way to load songs on my phone?

Random mp3 ringtones?

Okay. I figured out that I can set up a mp3 as a ringtone for this phone.

But does anyone know if it is possible to use a ringtone to point to a folder, and then randomly select a mp3 to play upon receiving a phone call?

macOSX 10.3.9: bluetooth file exchange doesn't work...

i just updated to macOS 10.3.9, and since then, Bluetooth File Exchange crashes everytime I try to send a file from my computer to my 6230.

HS-810 and Nokia 6230 rebooting

Question: Is anyone else having issue with the Motorola HS-810 locking up the phone?

When I try using the headset the first time of the day it locks the phone up. After a reboot )power cycle) it clears up and works like a champ.

How do I tell if my 6230 is locked or not?

I got my phone through and it could be that it's already unlocked, right? How do I tell for sure. Thanks.

Equalizer while talking on Nokia 6230?

I love this phone, but I noticed while talking there isn't an equalizer so I can change the earpiece volume tone to "bright" or "loudness" like in my old phone.

Did I just look over it, or did Nokia really leave out an equalizer?

Any help is very much appreciated.

web settings

I bought an unlocked 6230 that was originally intended for Cingular. I'm using it with an ATT sim. Phone is great; only problem is that I can't access the web to get any ringtones, etc. because the settings are for Cingular's MEdia Net. Does anyone have any insight on where I can find the proper settings so I can hop onto ATT's M-Mode? (or is it even possible to do it?)

Thanks!! Cool

Cingular MediaNet

Would anyone know why my 6230 would suddenly start displaying images in Black and White on Cingular’s Media Net? This has happened before and no one seemed to know why it started. They replaced my Sim Card and everything returned to normal. Well it has started doing something similar. This time, instead of black and white it is displaying images in a single color. It’s like it switched to a low color palette or something. Can someone help?
