    God the 6230 must be a popular phone, I've been nagging o2 for an upgrade
    for two weeks, STILL no 6230's in stock!

    Pretty much every other phone is - i.e. the 6600 and the SE 700i!

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I picked up one at the Schiphol Duty Free store. It is very very sweet.

    Really?
    I've had mine for over month now, and no real problems at all. What is it
    that you don't like about it? Any ideas why it needed to go in for repairs?
    (obviously it was broken, but what was wrong?)
    Most reports I've read have been quite favourable, there are a few bugs in
    the current firmware but nothing that amounts to much more than a mild
    irritation (on general consensus).
    On balance is it (IMO) a very well specced phone with some good features
    that also does the basics well, (and looks quite nice too).

    Maybe I'm biased because I choose and paid for mine myself rather than it
    being imposed on me by my company...?

    Cheers,

    ChrisM.

    ok the ringing speaker died

    the blue tooth to the car kit would cutout when the car was moving ,
    they had 2 goes at fixing it and is ok now

    both times took about 2 weeks for it to return

    i HATE the 4 way joystick function , i use SMS all the time for work as my
    jobs come via sms
    and after 2-3 months i still end up in the wrong menus

    the Radio reception sucks

    the Battery life with Bluetooth is woeful , lasts under 2 days or more so it
    is flat at the end
    of the 2nd day so not even 2 days

    If i paid for it i would be REALLY PISSED OFF as opposed to irritated by
    daily use

    the only good thing is the blue tooth kit, great get in car , no plugging in
    it just works

    have never had any real issues in the past with opther phones

    the 6310i i had in a previous job was Fantastic

    unfortunatley Nokia quality is droppping off nowadays by the looks of it

    Hmm, sounds like you've had troubles! I WOULD be pissed off if I had had all
    that hasle!

    Ringing speaker dieing: Not much I can say about that, other than S***
    Happens...

    4-way joystick - yea it is a bit tricky, but I find it easier than the
    little joystick on the T610/630.
    (If you set-up 'Inbox' as the top option of your 'Goto' lefthand 'SoftKey'
    thet will rrduce the amount of joystick twiddling you need to do to read
    your messages)

    No real problems with the radio, maybe I'm lucky and live near a good strong
    signal.
    I don't use a bluetooth carkit, only bluetooth for file transfer, so can't
    comment.
    As for bluetooth battery life, I assume you keep BT on all the time? I think
    (and I'm prepared to be corrected here) that this would drain the battery
    quite quickly on any phone.

    You understand I'm trying to defend my choice in buying one here... but I
    guess the more complex and feature-ridden phones get, the more likely it is
    that things will go wrong...

    Hope you get to love it ;-)

    Cheers,

    ChrisM.

    i have that , but i have to look through the messages all the time as all my
    work comes
    by SMS , so at each job i need to check addresses , faults, and info of the
    job
    so it is used all day everyday

    quite possibly , maybe in the future they will be less power hungry

    not yet , maybe if i paid for it i would

    but i do like the speaker phone aspect , that is one good thing about it
    so when i am on a job i can talk and still work , but people start looking
    at me strangely
