Anybody compared reception in the US between the 6230 and the 6230i
I know the 6230i doesn't come with the 850Mhz band but has anybody ever compared the two 6230s to find out what the difference would be? Just curious how important it is in the US to have the 850Mhz bandwidth.
I've read through all of these posts, and so much talk about it coming out and so much talk of it not. I've looked through every dark dusty corner of the Internet looking for a version with the 850 band. I've even looked into seeing if there was some way to mod the phone to using 850, instead of 900, and found nothing.
So now for what I want from anyone:
If you can find it, or if you have it and are willing to sell it (for a reasonable price), and can prove that it has the 850 band, contact me and we'll talk.
Or, if you have found some way to make it work with the 850 band (and can prove it), contact me and let me know AND I WILL BOW DOWN TO YOU FOREVER.
Maybe I'm just an idiot, but is there some way to have it so that after sending a text, the message screen clears automatically? I've looked through all the settings I could think of and didn't find anything. Right now, I'm forced to go into options and clear the text manually between each message.
I'm a newbie to high tech cell phones but have done a bunch of research on them. I've basically narrowed it down to 2 phones, the SE s710a or the Nokia 6230i. The pros (versus the Nokia) on the SE are the design and screen size. The pros (versus the SE) on the Nokia are more memory than the SE and an FM radio. My requirements for a phone are bluetooth, camera, data-capable, EDGE, music player and wireless internet. I would really like it to have FM radio but could live without. I would also like to use it in conjunction with a laptop computer eventually so any features that would help with that are pretty important.
Like I said, I am a newbie but I do want to make an informed decision on this. Which phone should I go with and why or do yo... (continues)
I was browsing Ebay for Nokia phones for Cingular, and came across an auction for a Nokia 7610 for Cingular. In the listing, the seller wrote that he worked for Cingular, and was only selling the phone because he won a 6230i at work. I e-mailed him, and he said that yes, his new phone is the 'i,' with the megapixel camera and larger memory, and on the 850 band! According to him, the phone will be in stores in 2005! I'm so tired of waiting...I hope I can hold out till it gets here. But it's coming...
"Effective immediately the Nokia 6230 will be discontinued until further notice due to a quality related issue that is causing the device to lock-up within a large number of our Cingular markets and channels. After several weeks of non-stop investigation, Nokia has been unsuccessful in isolating a root cause contributing to this occurrence. This problem is believed to be software related, however until a solid root cause is determined and a corrective action administered; We are enacting a “STOP-SHIP” on this product. No additional shipments of the Nokia 6230 will be accepted from Nokia, nor distributed from our warehouses until additional information on this issue becomes available. Please transfer all 6230’s back to your corporate loc... (continues)
... that the 6230 and 6230i are among Nokia's most feature rich phones and they are so FUGLY!
What happened to Nokia's style and flair? Their phones have gotten worse than dull. They've become like replicas of the worst SonyEricsson can make. I can't believe I'm actually more impressed by some of the stuff from SE than Nokia.
