I have owned this 6230i phone for over 3 and a half years, i've used it all around the world and it has been dropped countless times, still going strong, a very very reliable and sturdy phone, very reluctant to upgrade it, why don't Nokia make current phones as good as this ?… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/08/2008 by DJ Neman (4 reviews written)

I have my Nokia 6230i for almost a year, and it still works like new. I really like it. No matter if are you a teenager or businessman, you will find it adequate for every purpose. The 1.3 Mpix camera captures pictures better then most of phones that have 2.0 Mpix camera. It's really loud, and great for listening music with or without headphones. It also has an EQ which you can tune to match the music you are listening. Beside the USB cable, you can connect it to your PC or other phone trough… Read Full Review

I do own it now and like you reading this i did the same in looking for what other people said about it first before buying one but i have to say i was never dissapointed and still arent that i finally bought one (it was a xmas prezzie to myself). you have everything you need on it camera media player video player, FM radio etc. I think the only thing i would change about it is like i said looking for a picture tends to take a min or so but i have a 128mb memory card so it'll improve with a… Read Full Review

“The Nokia 6230i is brilliant. ”

Written on: 27/07/2007 by f18nfz (3 reviews written)

The Nokia 6230i is brilliant.
It has an amazing design,
Has all the necessary features
Is not massively over priced
Remains good quality even after time
Takes memory cards
Plays videos and has Bluetooth

I have successfully downloaded and watched several films on my Nokia 6230i, the quality is not amazing but is satisfactory (3gp videos are very small in size so an entire film would easily fit a 128mb MMC memory card)
I read someone called it ugly, that comment disgusts me, I find this the… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2007 by bowieboots (2 reviews written)

I previously had a Nokia 6230 from Orange and loved it, however after the wife put it in my Stepson's washing bag, it got wet and I lost the ability to use the yes button. I hate flip and slide phones so that put out about 70% of the competition. Looked at the Walkman phones but found them and more importantly the buttons way to small. Liked the look of the 6233 until I saw the keyboard which was awful. There were a couple of others I looked at but in the end came back to the update of my… Read Full Review

I found this phone really easy to use and and easy to download music and games on to from my PC.
The music player and games all play very well even though I have only had it three weeks I am over the moon with this purchase. The only thing I need to do is get a larger MMC storage card. It is a nice little phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/12/2006 by chris39 (21 reviews written)

Sadly this phone lacks floatability and a total lack of leapability. A week ago I was leaning over cleaning out a stream of leaves and branches and my phone fell out of my pocket into the stream. Sadly it did not float nor leap back up into my pocket. I drained the stream and never found the phone. Darn poor show.
Huge instruction book put me off. I prefer things to be intuitive… Read Full Review

Nokia 6230i is the worst phone I have ever owned. I am on my third 6230i handset because I keep getting the reoccurring problem of the phone switching itself off and messages in my inbox being blank. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. I would rate this phone 1/10… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/10/2006 by sweetbea101 (1 review written)

It is a good mobile phone for those wanting an easy to use phone, without too many extras.

The Nokia 6230i mobile phone comes with a radio attachment. It has a really good quality camera, and loads of room if you add a memory card. The screen is quite large, excellent bluetooth reception and the battery life can last up to 3 days, left on. Not too expensive and amazing reception. The features were on the whole OK. Oh, it also has an MP3 player. It is a brilliant phone, if you like basic… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/10/2006 by ChipsterXX (1 review written)

I dished out $290 for this Nokia 6230i phone. It was top of the list in every review I read. What's wrong with those reviews or with the reviewers? In a nutshell, this phone is not worth your money nor your time, contrary to all the "raving" reviews you may have read elsewhere.

As long as we still have freedom of expression, I'll say: Don't buy this phone. Nokia is overrated and overpriced, as if the other cell phones weren't over-rated and over-priced! I'm sorry for every buck I spent on… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/10/2006 by andyv (17 reviews written)

With this Nokia 6230i phone I can choose how the top-level keys are used and therefore tailor them to what I want, so I'm just 1 click from particular items/functions.
It's compact and fits unobtrusively in various pockets.
So far, I do not have a problem with the battery life, it's far batter than my previous (now quite old) phone, so time will tell.
The loudspeaker works well in the car for short conversations.
Compatibility with previous chargers.
I like the Golf game.

Some of the… Read Full Review

I have owned this phone for a year now and have had no problems whatsoever. The radio is quite good and the camera takes reasonable quality photos. Video is quite good as well. I got this free with a 12 month contract which is just running out, but I may keep it after contract has expired as it is such a good phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/08/2006 by elliot17 (5 reviews written)

I lost my Nokia 6230, which I was very happy with, and then ended up with this Nokia 6230i as a replacement, firstly I thought it was just the same phone with a new button in the middle but as I started to use it, I noticed the screen was much better. It was great and so I started taking pictures and they were pin sharp on the screen. The phone also had more memory which I never use because of my ipod but if you do want to use mp3, it will take a 512mb memory card easily and I got a 256mb in… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/08/2006 by danskat01 (7 reviews written)

Style is a bit standard for these Nokia's, nobody would really know what a great phone you had. But for the money - the features and fun are well worth it.

PS I've dropped this phone a few times from waist height a few times and it's just a little scratched. But my boss dropped it once from 1m+ on concrete and it broke for good… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2006 by thunder tiger (7 reviews written)

Nokia have always been one of the most popular brands of mobile phones sold today, and they still are! The Nokia 6230i shows what a mobile phone should really be like.

I have owned the phone for 11 months now, and I am not thinking about upgrading it because this phone is just incredible!!

The moment I took it out of the box, I notices the sleek design and how comfortably it fit in my hand. The first thing I just had to try was the camera, as I had heard so many good things about it. As soon… Read Full Review
