    Hi folks - I'm having a 6230 problem that I'm hoping you can help me with.
    Some background; my 6810 completely died, no response at all. Battery is
    good, as it works in another phone, so I gave up on it and my friend gave me
    an old 6230 to replace it. So I downloaded the 6230 user guide, and it leads
    me to believe I'm missing a menu option.

    Specifically:

    Menu => Messages => Message settings => Multimedia msgs => Connection
    Settings => Edit Active Multimedia Settings

    I don't have this option. Under settings I have "Active multimedia
    settings" twice, the first one allows you to activate a set, and the second
    one allows a read-only view of the settings in the active set. But the
    option to edit the settings is not there. I have received a settings set
    directly to my phone from my provider and activated it, but it doesn't seem
    to have worked as not all the settings were updated correctly, so they've
    given me the settings to apply manually.

    Now my sim card works ok in the phone, I can make/receive calls/sms txt no
    probs, which leads me to think the phone is not locked, though I admit I
    don't know much about this. Is it possible that the previous owner (my
    friend's sister) had a menu option disabled by her provider? Or does it
    sound like I need a firmware update, and if so, how do I go about getting
    one?

    thanks for any help you can offer,
    owenm.

    Re: 6230 missing menu options?

    In my experience, settings sent to the phone over the air are "read-only":
    once you receive and accept them, you can't edit or delete them. In your
    situation, you will probably have to activate another set and then edit it
    manually.

    I've seen something before about a method to delete these "read-only"
    settings. I don't remember the exact command and I've never tried it
    myself, but I think I read that entering something like #delset# (#335738#)
    will do the trick at least on some phones.

    Re: 6230 missing menu options?

    Thanks Vlad, you're right, all settings sent over the air do appear to be
    read-only. I activated an empty set, and then the option to edit the
    settings magically appeared! I entered the settings and web and mms are
    working now as expected. Thanks!

    I do have a number of read-only sets still in my phone, but as you say,
    there's no option to delete them. I'll look into using the #delset#
    command, but I don't really see from the example you provided which of the
    sets it would delete.

    thanks again,
    owenm.
