    Hi there,
    just got my 6230 and was wondering about this: Where does my Nokia store
    details of my contacts when I choose to use phone memory? Does it store it
    on the phone or the Memory Card that ships with it?

    My second question: is it better to choose to use the phone memory or phone
    & sim?

    Regards,
    DeonH

    Your contacts would be stored in the phone and not the MMC card.

    The advantage of storing your contacts in your phone is that you can
    have multiple numbers and other details for each contact.

    For example:
    Fred Nerd
    Mobile xxxxxxxxxx
    Home xxxxxxxxxx
    Office xxxxxxxxxx
    email [email protected]
    Webpage http://www.frednerd.com/
    Address 7 Fred St., Nerdsville.

    Where as on the SIM card you would have to have separate entries for
    each phone number: Fred Mobile, Fred Home, Fred Office and there is no
    capability of storing other details on the SIM card like email, Webpage,
    Address etc.

    The advantage of having the numbers in the SIM are of course you can
    change to other phones.

    The choice is up to you, do you want the flexibility to move your SIM
    card to other phones with all your phone book numbers or would you
    prefer to have the additional contact information available in the phone?

    The other option of course is have some info on the phone and other info
    on the SIM card, in this situation you would choose SIM & Phone memory.

    Maybe the SAINT is right, but it is not autonmatically that the numbers are
    stored inside the phone. I also got a brandnew 6230 and after placing the
    simcard out of my old phone, I had all the numbers available on the 6230!!!!
    In the past you could chose sometimes where to store the numbers, in the
    phone or on the card. I think they are stored on the card.

    Storage: Nokia 6230

    It stores your contacts on the phone memory only. You can use MMC card for
    multimedia files only. Normally, SIM card allows to store only one phone
    number per contact and no other information (such as e-mails and/or postal
    address). Phone Memory allows to store much more additional information, but
    you are loosing all info from the phone's memory after reflashing.

    The best software for backing phonebook information up your PC is Oxygen
    Phone Manager II ( http://www.opm-2.com/ ). Using our software you can store
    your Nokia 6230 also locally on your PC and transfer phonebook information
    from phone memory to the SIM card.

    You can download the latest free trial version of our software here:

    If you have any questions and/or suggestions, concerning our
    program, feel free to post them on our official forum

    I think you will find the default setting *Phone and SIM*, so of course
    when you put the SIM in you will see all your numbers. But if you go
    into the settings and change it to *Phone only* you will then no longer
    see any entries from SIM card.

    If you want to keep all your numbers on the SIM card that is fine, but
    remember you can do so much more with the Nokia's phone memory. The
    choice is yours.

    If their software solves his problem, I see no problem with Oxygen
    responding to tell him so.

    It's an alt. group - get over it.

    that's the point - The OPM software (which I bought a registered copy
    of incidently) has absolutely nothing to do with the OPs original
    question which was about handset functionality.
