    Since you asked in the Nokia forum I'll have to say Nokia 6230. Ask in the Sony-Ericsson forum and I wonder which one they'd recommend? Hmmmm maybe a Siemens model?

    well id rather get the k700 coz the screen is very important to me but if that doesnt bother you then get the 6230 coz its a better phone except for the small screen. And the k700 is a bit buggy. Still, i would have bought the k700 if nokia didnt release the 7610 just because i really like a phone with changeable themes.

    While you mentioned the K700 having a flash and the Nokia 6230 doesn't, can someone tell me how well, or bad, the 6230 takes pictures in complete or near darkness? BTW, if MP3 is a function you would like to use, I'd get the 6230 since it has expandable memory. But if it's not an issue I would get a K700.

    You need to tell us what features are important to you for us to really respond intelligently.

    I'd personally prefer the Nokia 6230 because it has class 10 EDGE, so data on that phone is about four times faster than the K700i (but only if your network supports EDGE). However, the K700i could very well be a more desirable phone for you.

    I had owned both !!

    Clearly ..K700i is better than 6230, feature-wise.

    But K700i has still buggy SW and sticking "2" problem but it has LED camera light, dynamic wallpaper, better camera ..

    But 6230 has external storage !!

    In my case, I settle for 7610 !

    Everybody keeps talking about how buggy the K700 is, what about the 6230? People were saying stuff about them having bugs.

    I have a Nokia 6230b pre production model... and there is only ONE bug that I see... my phone will occasionaly restart while I'm browsing though it. It happens once a week, maybe twice.

    And to the user who cares about cameras on phones.... why the hell does it matter what camera is better? They still suck compared to a true digital camera. I'm not gonna take pictures on my trip to wherever I go with my phone, I'm going to want to bring a nice camera.
