Would anyone knows where I can find the US 850/1800/1900 Mhz version of this phone. I live in a rural part of Quebec, and I definitely need the 850 band. I ordered the 900 Mhz version because I didn't have any way to find out if the 1900 Mhz will come clear here, so if it doesn't work, I'll have it for sell to buy the US version.
I recently purchased an unlocked 6230i. I am under Cingular Wireless and was wondering if there was anyway possible to access the internet. I had the 6230 and have had the internet for years. I am willing to pay for it, but was just wondering if there was a way to continue it through Cingular. If not, I know the 6230i runs on the same frequencies as T-mobile. Do you think it's possible to just order the internet from them while keeping my Cingular service? Or is that just a stupid question?
I've compared all the spec sheets i can find and some things confuse me. Says that usb and mp3 has been added to the 6230i, but doesn't the 6230 already support both these things? the nokia site also says the 6230i has an IR port and the 6230 doesn't. can anyone clear any of this up? I'm about to order a 6230 through letstalk, can't wait.
😕 The bluetooth failed on my first one. Now my second ones bluetooth has failed in just under 2 weeks and the unit starts heating up and the battery drains in about 3 hours with no use. I think there's definitely a bad batch out there. It's the results of Nokia's new rush to get things out philosophy. What a disappointment.
So, I was thinking... I already have the 6230.. and I have insurance.... if my phone should break or get lost, my insurance will cover the replacement phone... however, does anyone have an idea if it would be replaced with the 6230, 6230i, or suprisingly, another phone altogether????
I just played with this phone for a few hours and OMG is it awesome. This may be the everything to everyone phone all us phone geeks have been griping about for years. My trainer brought in his 850 Cingular model. It has killer audio, the video playback is insane. It even has a video based user manual with audio built in. Probably a waste of memory, but a great feature to get low-tech users comfy with a very high tech phone. The camera is awesome. The screen is one of the best I've seen on a Nokia. The guy who owns the phone (and just about every other GSM phone out there) claims it is his favorite new phone since the T-Mobile Samsung S105 came out a few years back. He even had Blackberry running on it. Sick!
OK, I currently own the Motorola V400 phone on cingular's network. The V400 has a speakerphone as well as the new nokia 6230i. The speakerphone is pretty good quality on motorola but its NOT full-duplex (can both speak at the same time without waiting for the other person to finish what he/she is saying). Is the speakerphone quality good on both ends (caller and callee)? Is it loud enough to hear in a noisy enviornment? And lastly, is it full-duplex?
