Although there are already many reports about this phone, I would not let it take me to pass on my long term report for 2 years on this phone to you. I have tried with the phone up some and it made some experiences that determined in this form, not everyone has experienced. One thing first: It is once again a very long report! I refer particularly to the sections “II The mobile phone as a file manager” and “III The mobile phone as MP3 player.”: You mentioned the – sometimes very odd – experience that I have made.

VII Technical Details
VIII Conclusion

I. Basic features of the phone

1. Delivery, packaging and price
As usual with Nokia, my phone was on 07.06.2005 in a rectangular cardboard box with a paper bowls inside. The packaging itself I have not, I can only say from memory that the colors were red and white and a photo with the phone was out. In the box itself, there were the cell phone with battery and a multimedia card (MMC) with 32 MB storage capacity. Both had been located in the mobile phone. Incidentally, I have the black phone and the product image of Nokia.com shows it in silver.
In addition there was a charger, a headset (headphones with microphone), a manual and a CD-ROM on which the “Nokia PC Suite” was in the version 5.38 on it, plus a few small programs such as Adobe Reader.

Because the phone was pretty new back then, I – Proud paid 99.95 euros for it – despite the contract extension. Interestingly, there is this phone on contract with many providers now for 0 or 1 €.
For Real in Dusseldorf I’ve recently seen as a contract-free cell phone Unlocked for 179 €. On eBay, I found it as new with warranty and invoice as immediate purchase for 109 € plus shipping. Used mobile phones you can get from eBay are probably cheaper, but always connected with the risk of a defect.

2. Manufacturer

Nokia has long been the leading manufacturer of mobile phones. The Finnish company has a variety of offices and plant sites worldwide.

For the German speaking in the first place, the German website, the contact point:
www.nokia.com

3. Commissioning of the mobile phone
To put the phone in service, I had to initially charge the battery. For this I simply took the charger, put it on the bottom left “foot” to the phone and the other end into an outlet. Buy it began – in spite off mobile phone – on the display to blink. It indicated that the cell phone was charged. That was relatively fixed, and after about a half hour there was a beeping signal that the charging process was completed. Now I pressed a few seconds on the top button on the “head” of the phone. First I had the PIN code, which I had received from my mobile operator. After the completed and I had been welcomed by the typical Nokia handshake, I had to adjust the time. The default is always to 09:00, that is 9 clock in the morning. Then it was called, set the time zone. Here I was able to take over from the set value “GMT +1″ (Greenwich Mean Time plus 1 hour, ie GMT). And finally, finally the date: This is the factory setting always “01/01/2005″. Then we came to the home screen, and could help with the fat knob in the middle – go to the menu – this is the joystick. Here, then Nokia’s typical ten icons are displayed (including 9 visible), namely: – read from top left to bottom right:

Messages, call logs, address book, settings, gallery, media, organizer, applications, and Internet Tools.
The menus can be accessed by the individual cursor arrows (located on the edge of the joystick in all four directions) or select by pressing the joystick.

I must admit, I’ve tried over the two years not everything, and I can therefore reflect on the individual menu items only what I have personally experienced it. Two disadvantages are, however, I noticed right at the beginning of a negative: 1 Every time you take out the battery, are the date and time settings off and then jump back to the pre set value. One must then keep resetting all new. 2. Winter and summer time are not automatically adjusted, but you have to manually (go to “Menu – Settings – Time and date settings”).

4. Mobile phone calls

The basic function of the phone, as with all mobile phones: Enter the number, press the green button to talk to established connection, and hang with the red button again. The Nokia 6230 provides for calls to the following possibilities:

a) as a normal telephone handset: this is how “normal” phone: Keep to the mobile phone during a call just to his ear. The disadvantage: you can or can not drive a car, truck, tractor, motorcycle, bicycle or other Bikes!

b) hands-free with the speaker: you can turn on the loudspeaker during a call.

Therefore one must assume, however, only the conversation and then quickly press the upper right button below the display, where “Speaker.” stands. The Sprachton then from the speaker on the page top right. The volume can be changed by the way, the button on the left outer side of the phone in ten different stages, as indicated by brief flashes of a corresponding number of beams.
From personal experience I can say that it has worked with me in the years very well. For I have no hands-free in the car, and I had left the cell phone either between the legs in the driver’s seat or in the passenger seat. That came in time, perhaps five or six times before, and despite intensive driving noise has never complained to me about a conversation partner communication problems.

c) with the headphones (headset)

This is the solution that I recommend as a car driver at the most: the headphone plug at the foot of the phone, plug the ears, buckle up, log in and drive off. Then comes a call in, it is sufficient to press it to the big black button that is attached to the two connecting cables. Did they put on the headset, the black button is below the chin, and you can press the call answer directly and concentrate so fully on the traffic. Also, the hook works the same way.
I’ve also done a few times, and it excellently.
The disadvantage of this method, however, is: Sometimes you forget to take the headphones. But then an interesting possibility yes b) an alternative.

d) voice quality
All I can say anything (almost) only praise. As mentioned, it works in the car quite well, but at home it works perfectly: I leave the phone on, for example the living room table and go when the round speakers in the room, I can understand my party is still, even when I ca . 2 meters away stand. It makes itself felt only a slight reverb, the sound is slightly quieter, but you get the whole story. At least, the respective comments of my party when I asked.

Also out of the test was quite good, if not always desired by the caller: I can still remember a conversation I am Sonntag, 25.03.2007, from a children’s play area – led – sitting on a park bench. My interlocutor said, “What is there so loudly in the background?” Meant there were a few noisy children playing, although they were about 5-6 feet away from me. So on with the mobile phone also noises quite well, but – as mentioned – is not always beneficial to the caller. In the tram or train for me were the noises, however unreasonable, and since then I leave my phone in such situations always off.

e) Duration and battery performance

03/25/2007 On that I also carried out the absolute acid test in terms of time elapsed. After I am charged the battery fully implemented only a 5-minute interview I conducted in the afternoon a long-term test on the aforementioned children’s playground, I phoned exactly 3 hours and 25 minutes before breaking off the conversation because the battery was empty. We can therefore say with some certainty that the battery of the Nokia “packaged” 6230 almost exactly 3 ½ hours of talk time. A pretty good result, I think.
If I’m way on the phone only occasionally, and the phone was turned off at night, the battery lasted almost exactly five days.

5. SMS (text message) to write and receive

a) Write

So, writing an SMS (short message of up to 160 characters) designed with this phone easy: This one moves the cursor, only the joystick to the left – and whoosh! You’ve got the input window for writing an SMS on. How to write the letters by repeatedly pressing the number keys or how to write with shift switching-on of small capital letters and return, which probably everyone knows and does not require special mention.

Which is very convenient: you write a text message to more than the usual 160 characters, then you can simply write on. Note, however, is a) not every recipient has a cell phone for long SMS and this may be two or more SMS receives, each of the 160th Stop sign (that is possibly the middle of a sentence) and b) that the mobile operator billing in any case longer than several SMS text message. So, a bit short, one should take it!
A special gimmick on this phone is that certain emoticons – such as this one :-) – are already set and you sure do not have to write two or more characters in a row. This, simply press the star key on the left below. Man goes first to the drawing page, such as point, comma, dash, etc. Now the cursor moves on the joystick to the left – and you get an overview of the proposed smilies. With the cursor you will then select your smiley and press the joystick for paste – voila – the smiley is inserted!

If you then decided to send the SMS, you press the joystick again to send. A field “Phone number” pops up, and you enter the desired phone number. Who here has a contact in his phone book in it, which he wants to send the SMS, press the joystick to the “Search” and select the desired item. Then press the joystick again for OK: It dipped briefly to a window “message sending” – and SMS is sent. Whether this is, however, arrived, unfortunately, we learn not only if the recipient sends a response.
You can alternatively send a text message to “Menu – Messages – Text messages – Create message.” And then goes before described above.

b) receiving
Receiving SMS messages with this phone is also not a science: Come in a text message, you hear the typical Nokia-signal and the display will indicate “a text message received!”. Then just press the joystick to “Show” – and the contents of the phone is displayed on the display.

You can also view his entire inbox can “Menu – Messages – Text messages – Inbox.
There on the page “option” use a whole lot of ways, such as Delete, Message details, details (about the writer of an SMS to the phone book record), etc. These are but mentioned only in passing. That has just about any myself.

c) my own experience
Over the two years there have been only a few SMS I had sent, and did not arrive. Why, I can not tell. But about 99% of my SMS arrived at the receiver, so a very good rate.

Also, the fact that I am a fuss pot and with the 160 characters do not always get along, has for many recipients caused confusion when he then got two or three SMS messages that were cut off in the middle. Conversely, knew my friend to report at this time – she has a Nokia 6630 – that was my overly long text message when you arrived in one piece. I myself have often “Use detail” feature used when someone was added with a new number that I was able to take the phone book, so – lazy about writing as I now sometimes I – I spare the next time the trouble of typing the phone number . Also from the smilies I made a lot of use. Among the other functions I can not say anything because I have not tested this.

6. MMS (Multimedia Messaging)

An MMS has the advantage that you can not only text, but also send pictures and music to it. Thus, for example, send little greeting cards, such as a cake with “Happy Birthday” below or something like that.
“Menu – Gallery – Graphics” Nokia has put some nice graphics as templates that you can use it.

With the Nokia 6230 can be (*. mid) music in formats including MIDI, MP3, AAC and send *. *. EXT, also pictures in the format jpg *. gif and *.. Even video clips in 3gp mobile format *. are possible.

a) Write

Unfortunately the phone from home no direct access to writing like an SMS. He can set himself but in hindsight. Here’s how: One after you press “Menu – Settings – Personal shortcuts – Right selection Waste” and choose “Create MMS” then from the options offered to the point. From now on the right of “menu” selection point “MMS” can be seen. This can then easily select the right button.
Of course you can also do it manually. Therefore one must choose one after another: “menu – messages – Multimedia messages – Create message..”

This is where the text window, like the SMS, and you can write the text.
Anders is here for the menu “Option”: If you select then “Insert”, then you have the choice between a picture, a sound or video clip.

If you have everything together as he wants, you press the joystick to send. Here you have the choice between a telephone number, e-mail address (including to recipients on the Internet) or “multiple”, also so for multiple recipients. Finally, press the joystick OK – already, the MMS sent.

b) receiving

The procedure is the same as the SMS reception, but the message is then “A multimedia message received!” The rest is just like the SMS!
All received MMS can be found under “Menu – Releases – Multimedia message -. Input”.

c) my own experience

So, I sent over the years, very few MMS, but some receive more. Luckily I took my phone do not configure extra for MMS, as this was pre-set by my phone provider already.

Since April this year, but I have no way to send or receive MMS. What had happened? Well, I often got MMS advertising for the Internet portal of my mobile operator than the so-called “service messages” sent to the I so did not want him. But it was not alone: These were received MMS to talk with me 1 cent, sometimes there charged 2 cents in great regularity! Incredibly, so what! So I let the phone access to the Internet portal block (which also has on top of that cost 5 euros). What I later by calling the customer hotline learned: All data functions were therefore blocked, not just the Internet, e-mail and chat, but also just – MMS. So much for this topic.

7. Address Book

An essential function for each cell phone user is the phone book, address book listed here. In it you can enter not only the names of his loved ones, but also some additional details, if required even more entries for a name. The settings menu can be found in the upper right under “Address Book”.

a) New entry

The first thing you do after the initial purchase of the phone, of course, is his partner and family members, friends and acquaintances include in his address book. For this you choose just the address book to select “new entry” and enter in the window, its name, then in the “phone number” the number. Then comes the message “stored in the phone memory, and the number is displayed with a phone icon. Depending on what is a number, whether fixed line, mobile, private or work, you can do so accordingly. To do this you select ‘Option – Change Type “and select an icon from the following: General, Mobile, Home, Office, Fax. Besides the phone number now appears on the new icon.

The next interesting item under “option” is “add detail”. Then you can choose from: E-mail, Web address, postal address, User ID, note..
Then you have to enter the required details, such as a postal or e-mail address. This detail is displayed under the appropriate number.

b) seeking entry
This is very simple: Address Book – select Search and press the joystick. Then give her the first few letters of the name, a little scroll down until you have the name, and press the joystick for Details.

Then you scroll to detail that you want to have, and presses “Show”. Even the content is displayed. If the selected detail is a phone number you can call the usual way directly.

c) speed dial

It’s even quicker with the calls by speed dialing: Nokia holds the keys for 2-9 ready for speed dialing. You can find them on “Menu – Address Book – Speed Dial.
By default, all shortcut keys are blank. With the joystick you can with “Assign.” assign a member a choice. Either you give in the window “phone number” the number manually, or press the joystick to the “Search” and select the entry from your address book.
Henceforth, it is sufficient to speed dial the desired party – eg the “2″ – press to call it directly.

d) Copy entries
Sometimes it may be useful to copy the entries from the address book from phone memory to SIM card or vice versa. An example: You want the SIM card into another phone.

To do is select your whitelist – Copy and then select either From phone to SIM card ‘or’ From SIM card to phone. After that you can “Single”, select “All” or “standard numbers” – depending on what you want to copy.

e) Own experience

So, I have used in the two years the speed dial function countless times. The details I have mentioned only postal and e-mail addresses, all other possibilities I have not used.

II The mobile phone as a file manager

This phone also offers the ability to send and receive data – either to another cell phone or a PC. I tested this feature in-depth with very interesting and sometimes strange results.

1. The internal file functions of the phone

Symbian OS, the operating system of the Nokia 6230 offers, though not as much comfort as Windows, but you can use it to perform some file functions.
• You can create your own folders for example. This is only in the gallery. There simply select “Option – Add Folder” and then type in “folder name” the name.

• You can delete folders: Just select the folder, then select option – Delete folder and press “Select”. That’s it! But beware: The default Nokia folders can not be deleted! But this is a good thing, because then you can accidentally break anything!
• Move Files: Easy does it when the files are located directly above or in a subfolder. Then you mark the file, select “Options” then “Move”, selected with the cursor in the destination folder and press “Move. I.” with the joystick. It is the message “Moved to XX” where XX is the name of the destination folder. A little trick you have to, however, if the target folder is on a different level, such as a subfolder of a parallel folder. An example of how I’ve done it many times:

• I have a file in the folder “Pictures” opened in the gallery and wanted to move the photo in a folder on my memory card. Again, I selected the file, chose “option – Move – Option – Order Open”, then selected the desired folder and pressed again to “Move i..” Therefore, one must first locate the appropriate folder and open it by hand over hand to move the file to the desired subfolder. In practice, I’ve often made with photos taken of the cell phone camera that are stored by default in the “Photos” in the gallery, and this so moved to a folder I created on the memory card.
You see, the phone has indeed rudimentary file manager functions, but there is a lot easier. See the section “Data transmission via Bluetooth.

2. Data transmission via infrared

The first experience of data transfer at all with my phone I made in July 2005. I was then invited by a friend who had a mobile phone from Samsung. He wanted me to play a few funny pictures. The trouble was: His cell phone had only infrared as a means of data transmission.

For this I had to activate infrared, but only once. I made about “Menu – Settings – Connections – Infrared” This was the infrared port is activated. After my buddy had done with the settings, he sent the first picture going on IR. But nothing was made even though we were sitting only three feet over the chair! It first came about, no data transmission.
The solution: We had our cell phones at a right angle directly next to each other, then it went. After a few seconds came the SMS alert with me, and I was asked in which folder I wanted to save the file. Well, well – Gallery – Graphics selected and stored. The whole thing you had to do with each image individually, and there were some that afternoon. Also could not wait too long with the transfer, otherwise, the infrared transmission automatically disabled, and they had to stop again and again.

I have to honestly say: That afternoon I transferred to the first and last time data via the infrared interface. Nice feature, but now totally outdated and also very unreliable.

3. Data transmission via Bluetooth

The modern way to transfer data, via radio signals, that is via Bluetooth (English “Blue tooth”). The devices, which can – at least on the PC – this need are USB sticks that look like an oblong, blue teeth, hence the name. In the phone itself, the Bluetooth interface is already built.
a) Additional hardware and software

To the cell phone fit for the data exchange with the PC, I got myself over the years several hardware-components. These were:
• Easy Line Hama Bluetooth Class 2 USB Adapter (bought November 2005 for € 19.99 at Real)

• Easy Hama USB 2.0 Card Reader 35 in 1 (purchase date April 2007 for 11,99 € for Real)
• Verbatim 1GB MMCmobile memory card (purchase date March 2007 for 29,99 € at Galeria Kaufhof)

For software I used:
• Nokia PC Suite, first version 5.38 for Windows 98 (included on CD the phone), later version (downloaded from the website of Nokia) 6.83 for Windows XP

• Bluetooth Widcomm driver software for Windows 98 (included on CD to the USB stick)
• Windows XP Service Pack 2 and the included Bluetooth driver (Service Pack 2 was settled on CD many computer magazines, but is also available online for downloading, such as on www.winfuture.de). Users of Windows Vista is said, you need to do anything else, the Bluetooth driver is on top of your installation CD already!

b) data transfer from phone to phone

How this works, I explain a practical example: On Pentecost Sunday, the 27th May 2007 was once again announced Family Day with my parents. My 12-year-old niece, a Nokia 5200 has asked me if it is not a specific song in MP3 format might have of me. That I happened on it on my phone. What we both had to do so in order for the data exchange work? Correct: We both had to enable Bluetooth on our phones! In my case, I chose one after the “Menu – Settings – Connections – Bluetooth – Select – a – Choose from.

Then came the message “Bluetooth enabled” Then I went into the gallery, labeled the corresponding MP3 file, and chose one after “option – Send – Via Bluetooth”. Then came the message “Device will be looking for,” and after a few seconds appeared on the Nokia 5200 my niece on the display. Now a “Select” button, and my niece had on their phone or the request “received file from Nokia 6230?” confirm with “OK”. Now a 5.6 MB file was sent. It took almost exactly 4 minutes, until the SMS alert on her cell phone rang and she was unable to save the file somewhere with him on the phone. To prove that it had worked, played my niece that piece shortly thereafter.

As a result, I must say, that Bluetooth is not just compare the speed of light – only about 1.5 MB per second – but to use for sending individual data certainly is. But whole photo albums can be sent quickly, as the photos are usually much smaller (only about 50 to 100 kilobytes) and transfer it much quicker.

c) Data transfer from PC to mobile phone

Example, under Windows XP with Service Pack 2:
Here, the whole works on the principle AEG: Unpacking – plug in – go!

I just put the Bluetooth-Stick in a USB port of my PC. Seconds later, Windows XP, that had been “found new hardware”, self-activated the Bluetooth driver, and finally, the familiar blue and white Bluetooth logo appeared in the lower right task bar. I clicked with the right mouse button on this icon, I was among several points including “Send file” option. This worked out the transfer, I had to put a check mark the Use Master Key “and type in a numeric code that had to be the same both on the phone and the PC. One could express the simplified so that both share the same “language” have to talk to understand each other. I have always taken for simplicity the four-digit PIN code in my phone, but every other number code is also possible.

After I had done this and “Next” is clicked, I had to through dialogue “browse” choose a file on my hard drive that I wanted to send to the phone and again click Next.

Now I asked my cell phone: “By coupling OBELIX-89997872? This is the name of my PC, as it appears on the network.
Then I had the password – enter – those same four digit code. Then my phone told me that I was paired with Obelix and then asked if I would like to receive the file. Pressing “OK” on the phone, and finally the file could go on the trip. The progress of the transfer was displayed on the PC in continuous beams. Was the transfer finished shone, “received file” on the display of the phones on and I could press the “Show”. The content has now been shown, I was able to “Save.” Click a destination folder and select “Save in.” Key – whoosh! – Now the file was on my phone. Flight not entered a new file name or the date with “OK” – done. At the end, the dialogue was “filed in XX” where XX was again the name of the destination folder.

This method does have one big drawback, as I found out: If the file is larger than the space that is still in the phone memory free, the transfer does not work! The mobile phone pimped then “Not enough memory to receive the file,” and the PC also criticized “Operation can not complete!”

The solution: The mobile phone uses the phone’s memory as a cache and sets the received file from there before it stores them in a target folder of your choice. This means that the storage capacity of the phone memory must be greater than the size of the file to be received, otherwise it definitely works!

How do I get as much space on my phone memory available? It’s simple: You select the one after “Menu – Settings – Phone settings – Memory Status – phone”. Then you will see your “Free Space”. Comparing this value with the size of the file on your hard disk: Marks the file, right click and choose “Properties”. If the value is smaller than the free phone memory, you can successfully start the transfer – otherwise unfortunately not!

In Windows 98 on the PC of my friend the actual procedure was the same. I had, however, the Bluetooth driver from Widcomm install on your PC, because Windows 1998 has emerged at a time when there was no Bluetooth. The results were the same thing here as under XP.

d) data transfer from phone to PC

This is relatively simple and similar to sending an SMS or MMS: You highlight the file, select one after “option – Send – Via Bluetooth. Recovery equipment are being sought. Normally, my Obelix are now found. This is not the case, just click on the PC, right-click the Bluetooth icon, select “Receive File” and repeated the step on the phone again. Now, should my phone and Obelix have finally found! The progress is displayed again in a continuous beam on the PC. Shortly before completion of data transmission can be determined on the PC nor a target drive and target folder where the received file to be saved as. The phone says on success Sent: file XYZ ” and the PC just says “Finish!” only
The advantage of this method: Since the hard disk of a PC so many times a is greater than the memory of a mobile phone, you need here at the file sizes not paying attention to!

Data transfer using Nokia PC Suite

The easiest way to transfer data from PC to phone and vice versa, works with the Nokia PC Suite.

Installation and set up the connection

After I had downloaded the program on the Nokia website and installed, I was out using the connection wizard by the program. First, did the PC Suite to know the connection type: Here I selected “Bluetooth connection”. Then tried the program my phone and found it too. Then I marked my phone, clicked on “Next” and you asked me my phone to see if it with Obelix, my PC would be coupled. Pressing the joystick for “OK” – and was the connection between PC and mobile phone manufactured with the help of Nokia PC Suite. Then it was just complete the setup. The result was that the user interface of the PC Suite has been launched. On this total of 12 symbols can be seen. to report on it would be too much and would rather subject to an extra report on this program. I therefore limit myself only to the most important function of data transmission, which I’ve tested – the file manager.

File Manager in Nokia PC Suite

The file manager of Nokia PC Suite actually looks like the Windows Explorer with the difference that on the right side of the “Nokia Phone Browser” can be seen. On it are displayed:

• Phone memory
• memory card
• Contacts
• RELEASE

The nice thing about it: Both in the phone memory and the memory card is displayed, how much space

a) overall present

b) how much space is left free in each case. As you can orient it so great.

Double clicking on the respective menu item, you can view its contents.

c) data transfer via drag-and-drop

We know it even from Windows: You selected a file with the mouse, hold down the mouse button, the file moves to a folder of his choice, let go of the mouse button and start the file to the desired location hinkopiert. Same thing here.
In the practical test, I wanted to then know the details: I was looking for me from an MP3 file, the transmission had failed in the phone memory.

This I drew directly on the E drive, which is precisely my memory card. It appeared now a small window to “data is copied,” seen on the a laptop and a cell phone with moving points of data exchange and display a progress bar were. After completion of the transfer window just disappeared. Now I could just look in the Nokia Phone Browser or on the phone itself if the file had arrived – and: voila! – It had actually works!

Results: It seems in fact as if you can copy any data on the x-phone, at least directly to the memory card as in this case. The restrictions on copying to the phone memory but also apply here. But the practical ways one can already see the Phone Browser, whether the hinhaut with the file size or not.
f) communication with the Multimedia Card (MMC)

As indicated in the introduction, I experienced some strange surprises, and exactly where I am now.
After my 32 MB MMC that the phone was attached, was no longer sufficient – after all, as only fit 10 – 12 MP3 songs on it – I got myself a MMCmobile the company with fabulous Verbatim 1 GB storage capacity. As ought to come out with unlimited music enjoyment! So I thought! But it put to me a few stumbling blocks in their way.

Stumbling Block 1 :  MMC MMC is not the same! Meaning, not any multimedia card is created equal. Thus, besides the “normal” MMC as it is to be found in the Nokia 6230, also the RS-MMC (RS = reduzed size) and MMCmobile. The latter two cards are only half as large as the MMC, but with the help of an adapter to fit into the slot of the phone. Cunning, I had made myself before buying the home page of Verbatim or knowledge that the card was invented by me also for my phone. The first hurdle I had thus sailed before.

Stumbling Block 2 : The AEG-principle does not work with my phone. I changed the first memory card from easy. The display of my cell phone but was only “Memory Card – 0.0 KB”. Now I wanted from the phone memory just copy a few photos on the card. Already it brutally pounded against the message: “This memory card is not formatted, format?”
I pressed the lever for “OK” – but then it was just quite simply: “Formatting failed” “If so I have to just under 30 € is actually buys electrical?” it shot through me.

The solution I found through my card reader, which I had mentioned above: I took the card from the phone and pushed it into the card reader. Use the right mouse button I showed me the features of the memory card: 978 MB capacity, file system FAT. The card was formatted so! My phone was just too stupid? Thus, it seemed, because I copied for test purposes just like five to six MP3 files from PC to the card. I also gave the card a drive-name. Then I put the card back into my phone, ‘What can I say? The drive name and the files were viewed as normal! Sometimes you can even doubt his mind, but this problem was eventually overcome.

Stumbling Block 3 :  The mass makes it, the thinking goes. In this way, I copied a bunch of MP3 files using the card reader on the memory card. But then suddenly – out! When I had reached a capacity of 527.8 MB, Windows suddenly refused further copying. Yes, just as it was in the file dialog of Windows!
Even the phone was suddenly only “memory card, 0.0 KB”
Could not read the phone? All the data gone? How so?

The solution I found: Map out your phone and back into the card reader. The data was displayed again as normal.
And now I lay on the memory card just in some order, sorted by categories, such as “80 years” or “instrumental” and moved the appropriate files into them.
After I inserted the card back to the phone, I noted with delight: All data back! And beautiful neatly sorted into folders! Now I could make the card also nearly full. Of the 978 MB I can finally fill 968 MB with more than 300 titles.

It seems that this phone is capable of its user interface for data transfer is limited. The Nokia 6230 is unfortunately not known what the maximum capacity for
