    Hi

    I am thinking about upgrading to a Nokia 6230 using Cingular. The phone
    is not available through Cingular anymore, but I can by it with a
    Cingular Contract through the Nokia Website.

    I have seen numerous posts and articles that there is a software
    problem with the 6230 and Cingular causing the phone to lock up, start
    scrolling endlessly through contacts, and dropped blue tooth
    connections. A friend of mine has the 6230 with T-Mobile and said he
    never had such issues.

    Are these issues only with Cingular? Was it perhaps a firmware issue
    that has been resolved by now? I would appreciate all and any help.

    Thanks,

    Christian

    Re: Cingular - Nokia 6230 Question

    I've had the Nokia 6230 with Cingular for a couple months and had absolutely
    no problems with using the Nokia software using Bluetooth or the Bluetooth
    earpiece. Works great!

    I also had no problems with the 6230 for the month I owned it, but
    I didn't like that the media player didn't allow FF/REW of video
    (and still find that absolutely absurd) so I sent it back and got a
    6620. It's a much larger phone, but now that I've spent time
    with it, it was a no brainer. It's 100x more powerful than a 6230.

    I use the 6620 at work and love it for its functionality, but it is too
    bulky for me. Great work phone, but a little too large for personal
    use. I really want the 6682 but unfortunately its too much moola. I
    will likely go with 6230. I wish they'd start selling the 6230i in the
    US, but we are always behind.... *sigh*

    theres no doubt, it is bulky, but after having that many features
    and things to play with, i cant go back to a 6230. i watch
    tv shows i download from the tivo on the 6620 on my bus
    ride to work and it functions as my mp3 player. i cant
    give up all the s60 apps out there.

    I totally agree. When I got the 6620 at work I joked with my wife
    saying I doubt I can go back to a small screen now. Unfortunately, the
    6682 is out of my price range and I would feel silly having a 6620 for
    work use and for personal use. The 6230 seems like a good choice, given
    its size and still wealth of features.

    Thanks for all comments.

    I thought about upgrading to a 6682, but to be honest, the only
    thing about the 6682 I like better is the form factor and the
    external access to the MMC. It has less memory, it's buggy
    as all hell right now and I could care less about the better
    camera. Other than that, it really doesn't do anything the 6620
    already does. So given the price point, it makes no sense to me
    to upgrade.

    Christian,

    I had the same problem and wnet to http://www.letstalk.com
    I got a great deal on two phones through Cingular, one was the 6320.
    The 6320 was free, yes, it was FREE!
    I ordered before 2:30 PM and paid $14.95 shipping for FedEx overnight.
    I had my phone the very next day.

    I love my 6320
