Ok I've been using this phone for about a year now, I can only see one major downside:

Sound quality is not all that good in situations with lots of ambient nois. Especially when outside, it can be hard to understand what the other person is saying. You can crank up the volume all you want, but it wont make a difference. It will only blast out more metallic crakling noise that easily gets overruled by surrounding noises. However, the handsfree function DOES work great, I'm using it quite a bit. So on the loudspeaker with not too much ambient sound, the phone sound quality is pretty decent. However for making phone calls in noisy surroundings, it sucks. In normal surroundings, conversation sound quality is so-so. Music/radio sound quality on the other hand is (both on stereo phones and mono speaker) is splendid. Small other downside is, you cant connect your own headphone.

This phone is for the GaNgStAs

Nokia 6230 is really good ang promising.. it's compact and fairly priced for all its capabilities/features.. you may find it confusing to use its navi-key, but you'll easily get used to it.. hehehe.. just make sure that the firmware version is 4.x (i read somewhere that the latest is 4.4 -- to check: press *#0000#). i bought mine 6 months ago, FW ver is 3.15, it's more like a microsoft product, it always restarts, worse, it hangs.. sometimes you have to put the batery out so you could restart the fone (after bluetooth pairing with PC). after upgrading my firmware (in a Nokia Center), it works fine and imaging is better... so far.. night mode is still very slow though..

i purchased my 6230 on tmobile contract a few month ago and found it to be the best nokia i have had to date this will be the sixth nokia phone in 10 years most impressed with perfomance and menus also put bigger card 256mb lots of photos and video clips

Er.. I think that the Sharp GX20 and Sharp GX25 have better VGA cameras than the K700i.

I got this fone yesterday and I really like it. Obviously that's only my opinion and others should feel free to disagree, but for me its great. It has a few weaknesses such as the screen, which is too small and not sharp enough for the photos it takes; and that wierd five-button nav key (will I ever get the hang of it). If it had a screen like the k700i it would be an absolutely brilliant fone. The pictures I have taken with this fone look good on my computer, but the screen on the fone can make them look worse than they are. Also I was disappointed that, for the money it costs, it doesn't have a camera light (and 'night mode' is sloooow).
However everything else is great. The mp3 player is great and the video player is good. The connectivity is brilliant with both infra-red and bluetooth on the fone.
Verdict: A great mobile with just the screen as its only significant weakness.
