Excerpt: I really wanted to like this phone because it has great features. But unless Nokia can fix the software so that its dependable I will never own one again. I currently am on my second replacement phone in 6 months, and told my provider today to give me another brand or I'm leaving.
The Pro's of this phone:
Great Pictures for a camera phone
Hands free attachment / Radio
Great alarm clock
Speakerphone, and great volume range
IR & Bluetooth
Excerpt: I owned this on the cingular network I think is what it was on, I was on a phone call, dropped it, the phone actually fell into the sink, It was wet when i removed it, and then I dried it overnight. The next day the screen was foggy and the phone worked fine, so I took it out, later on the buttons started having issues (this was later in the day) I laid it back down to dry, and it still worked for another 3 or so years no problems whatsoever.
Excerpt: This is probably the best all-in-one phone that still looks like a phone. It has pretty much everything I need: bluetooth, camera, memory card, radio, mp3 player, calendar, alarm clock, speaker phone. Seems like most negative reviews focus on bugs in early firmware versions, that's the only negative thing I was able to find, too.
Excerpt: Purchased in Dec '05, have used for four months and never looked back. Excellent handset.
Purchased unlocked, this phone has been my trusted companion since the day it arrived. Syncing with either my PC or Macintosh, this phone allowed me to download my address book, calendars and ToDo lists with little to no issues.
Call quality is stellar. Hands down the most powerful phone I've ever owned. Carrier is T-Mobile in Seattle. Used in Puget Sound and E. Washington.
Excerpt: I am a Nokia Lifer as my preference is Nokia hands down, however, this phone was an absolute disappointment. This was the one Nokia phone that I couldn't wait to have, however, it was the biggest disappointment as I had two of these modeled phones have problems with it. The keys would lock up on me and the only way I could get the phone to respond was to take out the battery.
Excerpt: Recently activated new acct -- had the opportunity to try the Nokia 6230i -- I am an avid Nokia user, I have to honestly say, this phone is not worth it-- save your money, or get the 6230. I guess it was because there was just too much going on inside the phone, but the software kept closing down the programs, I was using Bluetooth to load a song, down the power went, had to reopen all the programs again, no sooner had i did all that, the sofware kept closing and...
Excerpt: I finally gave up on flip phones and went back to a Nokia. My reception (Cingular - traveling in Michigan and Ohio) is much better, which is all that matters to me. I'm not looking for a phone that can play MP3's, surf the net, or make me lunch. Oddly enough, I want a phone that will allow me to send a receive calls with some degree of reliability. This phone does the trick.
Excerpt: I can't believe that there is actually a phone out there that doesn't drop calls. The call quality is so great that I'm actually recommending this work of art to all my friends and business associates. Easy to use and a phenomenal camera comes with it.
Excerpt: I owned the Nokia 7610 for one year and wanted a phone that was more conventional. I went with this one because of its features and its seize. After about a month, I will say that this is an improvement. Good reception, series 40 UI, very bright screen, and EDGE. I don't use the IR in the states, but use it when I'm overseas. The call waiting tone is louder than my previous phone which is nice.
