    I've just had an email back from my usual Nokia service centre and
    they have advised me they now have firmware V5.24 for the 6230 so i'll
    probably take it in within next few weeks.

    Quick question though before i do, has anybody who uses this
    phone/firmware version had/noticed any bugs/problems??

    TIA,

    Chris

    Do you have any problems? If not, Never Change A Running System.

    occasionally when using bluetooth & gprs at the same time it can reset
    the phone. something which it would appear other people have
    experienced and has apparantly been fixed in firmware 5.24.

    Have you no spirit of adventure?

    Someone earlier today mentioned a problem with using the + character in
    the phone book to cause the remainder of the number to be sent as DTMF.
    Someone else mentioned 5.26 but AFAICS it is intended for some other
    european countries but not the UK. I'm not certain whether eggster is UK
    based or elsewhere.

    According to the latest software listing the 5.26 packages are for
    Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, Latvia and Spain. You can't
    mix the 5.26 MCU with a 5.24 UK PPM so at present it's not possible to
    use 5.26 here.

    Whether that advice helps you though is a different matter ;-)

    Just had mine done today, and (touch wood) I've noticed no problems so far.
    Also *seems* to have resolved the reboot problem with bluetooth. I have
    noticed that on the plus side, if the keypad is locked and you press any
    key, the backlight now comes on for a second so that you can see what the
    screen says, unlike before on version 4.40.

    Mike.

    Hmm, that doesnt happen on my 6230 with 5.24, just the usual "Press unlock
    then *" without the backlight.

    IMO, that's one of the many design flaws with this phone that are still
    unresolved.

    When the screen is dark, you never know which key is safe to press.

    If the keyboard is locked, you get a somewhat benign "Press unlock"
    message. But if the keyboard is not locked, you may cause erratic
    undesired effects, depending on what key you hit on.

    There should be a key that consistently and safely lights up the screen,
    no matter what state the phone is in.

    Possibly, but you may not know that something is broken which an
    upgrade could fix. For example, you might not be aware that some bug
    in the firmware was causing excessive drain on your battery. There
    could be any number of improvements which you didn't know were
    available.

    Yeah, and any number of new bugs.

    I'd assume the total number of bugs to decrease with new releases - as
    long as the new releases do not introduce new features.

    Then have it completely upgraded in Belgium and Spain when you're
    on holliday. The language packs for those countries include English
    so the phone should work OK.

    BTW, I thought series 40 had only one version "western Europe", including
    most languages spoken there. I don't have a 6230 yet (planning to get one
    when I renew my contract), but my 6610i supports 8 languages: English,
    German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Turkish and Portugese. I know
    some larger phones support less (especially the 9210 with only 1 language),
    but how many does the 6230 support?
