    Re: 6230i is it dual voltage

    I think you'll find it is, Fender.

    I use an MMC RS DV 512Mb card in mine, no problem.
    (RS= Reduced Size, DV = Dual Voltage)

    Re: 6230i is it dual voltage

    Brian (and anyone else with interest),

    Just as a point of interest. I bought an MMC 512card, and loaded some of my
    ringtones on it. (on my 6230i).

    When I received a call, the phone would NOT ring, if I had selected a tone
    from the card. It would play the (boring) Dom Jolly tone (Nokia default!).

    Tried three different MMC cards, but all the same. (Never had this problem
    with my 6230).

    Bought an RS DV MMC, and "RESULT". It worked fine, with the selected
    ringtones.

    Cheers

    Re: 6230i is it dual voltage

    Quite true, Brian.

    When I tried a normal (3 in fact) MMC card, and found the problem on each, I
    called Nokia "customer service".

    They informed me that the phone ONLY supports up to 256 cards.. I pointed
    out to them the contents of the manual "supports up to 512", and their
    answer was "Nokia have not yet released a 512 card yet".

    It was they that suggested a DV MMC card, would work, which indeed it does.

    Don't get me wrong, the "normal" 512 card worked fine on access, to tones,
    pictures and all, but when the phone needed to ACCESS a tone (for an
    incoming call), the display would "sort of pause with the callers name", and
    then the default Nokia tune would play. It would NOT play the assigned tone.

    In using a DV RS MMC it works fine.

    Cheers

    Hi Brian.

    Current software 3.46.

    Previous version was???? (3.35??) the one IMMEDIATELY before the release of
    3.46. (I tend to take advantage of the s/w updates)

    I was working on the "theory" that the DV card was a little more responsive,
    for some reason.

    There wasn't a "great" deal on the DV (512Mb) card, about 190Mb (which was
    originally on my 256Mb card), hence the need for the 512Mb.

    Cheers

    That is WRONG!

    It takes normal MMC cards, which means it will also read smaller ones -
    they are just a little harder to fit into the slot - but they work fine.

    Re: 6230i is it dual voltage

    interesting, i have been reading on gsm forums that 1gb cards work in the
    6230i, my phone firmware reads 3.30
    what is the latest will it make any difference to the use of mmc cards.

    Could it be that Nokia don't market larger cards, so therefore they say
    they don't work?

    That's about the "strength of it".

    "Coz they don't make 'em, they don't support 'em"!!

    "Apparently" the 1Gb cards do work, from what I have been told.
