    Hi guys,

    while waiting for my 6230 to be delivered I've been thinking about the best
    way of getting my MP3's on to my phone. I don't particularly like the idea
    of having to take my phone apart every time I want to transfer files. Is
    anyone here using Bluetooth with their 6230 and if so how is it performing?

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Ah! Now I understand the previous posts that I read. The acronym BT was
    confusing the hell out of me. Just realised it means Bluetooth and not the
    usual BT. Things suddenly make a lot more sense now

    I'm not too worried about speed but out of interest, what kind of difference
    are we talking?

    I don't have a cable, so my only option to copy files is via bluetooth. A
    3.5Mb MP3 file takes ~30 seconds to transfer. BT can be a little unreliable,
    but I have only had problems when the phone is a fair distance away
    (downstairs) if the phone is next to the computer, works fine.

    If you were going have a large memory card and upload different files a lot
    then a card writer (or a cable) would probably be the prefered option. If
    you are going to transfer file less often, and don't mind waiting for a
    while I would try Bluetooth. A BT dongle will let you do things that a
    memorycard won't (eg back up the contents of your phone to your PC,
    synchronise your contacts, create and maintain playlists on your phone...)

    Cheers,

    ChrisM.

    Re: MMC reader or Bluetooth Dongle?

    dont have the figures, but trust me, a LOT.
    i estimate a 1meg file would take a good minute via bt, and a couple of
    seconds via a card reader.
    becomes a real real big problem when you wanna throw whole albums onto your
    shiny new 512 meg card...

    well, i do not agree with you on bt speed, i do get transfer speeds up
    to 5 megs/min. yes, card reader is faster, but i don't like to switch
    my phone on and off constantly just to put 2 new songs. btw, i've seen
    in stores brand new 1 gig mmc. It's not in sale yet, but salesman told
    me it will be around 200 us$... xpensive...

    Get both, they're relatively cheap and each have their uses:

    BT for backup and modem use, MMC reader to transfer pictures or mp3s either
    way in bulk.

    Re: MMC reader or Bluetooth Dongle?

    still using the 32mb mmc that came with the phone
    according to the nokia site, the phone allows up to a 256mb mmc

    some people i see are having troubles with mmc's above 256mb unless the
    firmware is upgraded?

    as for even finding the firmware & doing it myself, hah...the internet
    aint exactly getting any better to search for things

    i managed to however get a data cable & some decent software to reset my
    8250 though

    i guess the easiest option is to go into a nokia care center & ask them
    to upgrade the firmware, seeing as how im paying insurance every month
    on the phone with the contract
