I had the 6230 but i was havingan issue with it so I called Cingular Exchange By Mail and the women was all ready to send me my new 6230but then she had to stop and had to say she was giving me an alternate phone because they stopped shipping the 6230... so my choices were the S66 or the Moto V551... I chose the S66 so ill find out how it is on Tuesday!!
