    Just got my 6230 and am about to charge it. I know this is probably a very stupid question but how long should i charge it for?

    This is only my 2nd phone and i think i charged my last phone for 16 hours the 1st time but cant remember.

    Would appreciate your help! :lease:

    In other words, where repeated charging on older phones progressively wore the battery down to a point where the phone did not hold charge, newer models can be charged every day if you so please without any ill effect.

    A little off topic here I know, but something you may find helpful :)

    Ditto...

    I can't vouch for it's validity unfortunately but as stated, it came from a Nokia rep. and in the context of the discussion at the time there was no need for it to be untrue - it was simply a passing comment.

    I did notice on getting my handset that the battery does look different to the "classic" Nokia design. I don't know if there's any way to check - I guess time will tell :)

    I think it is because they now use Lithium batteries.

    You could just get a new battery instead. ;)

    They've been using Li-Ion batteries for years which supposedly don't have memory problems. As with Ni-Mh. Ni-Cad were the biggest offenders particularly as they actually produced a lower voltage than standard batteries.

    And as per Mylo's link

    As much as Ni-Mh were a lot better than Ni-Cad.

    A little care does go a long way!

    Slightly off topic here guys ...but has anyone nticed that if they turn their 6230 OFF whilst charging it loses the date and time setting?

    I've got two that do this??? :confused:

    3.15 is the latest version which was supposed to iron out some of the initial bugs from 3.14... I'm running 3.14 still and don't have the problem you mention so I'd suggest it's software related. I assume both phones are 3.15?

    There's not a massive amount you can do to be honest until Nokia release some new software. I can't imagine it'll be too long but it's probably worth mentioning to your retailer so he can advise you when an update is available...
