I upgraded to a Nokia 6230b with Cingular just over a week ago, and
I'm having a problem with the phone periodically locking up. When it
happens it won't respond to anything--I just have to remove the
battery to reset it. Alternatively, sometimes when I go to my contact
list it just starts scrolling down by itself & again won't respond,
requiring me to remove the battery. I upgraded just over a week ago &
am already on my second 6230 (the store replaced the first one when I
took it in while in auto-scroll mode), and now the second one is
starting to act the same way. Is it possible my SIM card is bad? What
else could be causing this? I searched & couldn't find anyone else
with similar problems, but I've had two phones in a row start acting
this way in less than a week. After the hard reset it works fine for a
while, but after several hours starts acting up again. My firmware is
v 05.34.

Thanks for any help!

You have the exact issue that I am facing and I am already on my third
phone. Did you find any resolution to it? If you do please please
respond to this message.

Thanks

Had this happen on my 6230 after about 6 months. Cingular replaced it at no
charge.

replace even this one - so i doubt i'll be getting another replacement.

The one problem I have had with my 6230 involves bluetooth, when I'm
using it to connect my laptop to the internet. Once in a while the phone
simply turns off bluetooth, on its own initiative. When it does that, it
won't let me turn it back on again. I have to turn off the phone, then
turn it on again, then go to the "connectivity" menu and turn bluetooth
on.

Perhaps that is due to anti-"Bluejack" logic kicking in.
