    I believe the 6230 has more memory, but Nokia's web site will confirm
    that. www.nokia.com

    Don't think I've ever sent one that long from my 6230, but I doubt
    either will have a problem... The 6230 is a much better phone, and
    worth the higher cost IMHO...

    The 6230 is a faster phone than the 6610/i. And four years ahead in R&D
    from the 3310.

    Well my wallet plumped for the 6610i. If it's rank I'll return it and get
    the 6230.
    Thanks to all who replied.

    Well I went for the lesser cost and fingers crossed it's a good choice. If
    not good old returns will be called into action.
    Thanks.

    Why not send text as a Multi Media message? LOADS of characters available,
    and I think you will find it cheaper than 12p/text

    Cheers

    (Oh, I of course appreciate you were carrying out some text testing to see
    how many you can group together)

    No probs. Although cheaper, you might, as I was, be disappointed with
    flickery keypad and the poorer screen on the 6610(i). Not a bad-looking
    phone though.
