Nokia 6230

the Nokia 6230 is the Symbian phone that never was. At least thats what I think.

Personally, see it as a near perfect device for my needs. it even surpases the 6600 and even the 7610. it has STEREO radio and mp3 playback, which since my beloved 5510 is an important aspect in my next purchase....that and price.

the 7650 has served me well, but now i just find it and many other new phones lacking in that crucial audio area. if only the 6230 was symbian.

its sad, but i will have to put my 7650 on mothballs for the forseeable future, until a worthy symbian comes by. for the meantime, it will have to be the sleek, neat and robust(functionally) 6230.

I hope that getting a non-symbian phone does not mean you will be forgetting the symbian community (read AAS)

Thumbs up

I would agree with you 100% this is a very very nice phone.

The camera quality is Ok (640*480) , the video feature is useful for the odd MMS (unless you are with Vodafone UK!) You can play MP3 through your Bluetooth car kit or set them as a ringtones. 1 week to a page for the calendar. 65k screen. Not forgetting the size, weight and battery life!

For a Series 45 handset the 6230 has a lovley feel to it aswell as lots of useful features.

I see the users flocking to get there hands on this handset in vast numbers.

I agree, it's a very nice non-symbian phone, maybe the nicest on the market IMO.

A bit offtopic, but does anyone know if the BT headset SE hbh-65 is compatible with the 6230? I remember that Nokia BT headsets don't work so well with non-nokia phones, so that's why I ask

Ha. Typical Nokia phone. As far as I know the *#7370# code for formating the internal memory is universal for all Nokia Phones. But I don't think it will work as long as the device cannot even boot. So send it to a N.S.C.

My husband decided to get a new phone. He had two guiding principles in mind:
1) he does not want a camera phone, he doesn't need one, it's ridiculous he said
2) he does not want fancy music equipment, there are no FM channels he'd like to listen anyways he said

I said I've heard some really good reviews on this nifty little phone Nokia 6320...


Then we went to the shop, and now he's got one

Just bought a 6230 for the gf. She's loving it. Replaces her 3650 which was always too big anyways...

After playing around with it, it's still not a patch on a symbian phone. Sure it does nearly everything you could ever want, but there's the 'symbian factor' missing.. didn't think it would be such a big part of the makeup of the phone... but I just can't go back....
