With all the talk about the new 6230 firmware (4.28), I would be
interested in hearing the things that get worse when upgrading.
Here's a start:

- phone memory decreases to 3.7 Mb (has anyone figured out why
yet?)
- default tones are erased, 4.28 comes without a gallery
- "When turning my phone off or on, I get a square with a question
mark in it." (not sure what that means, or if it's actually
a problem).

Anything else?

Thanks,

The 'memory decrease' is only due to an error in the free memory reporting.
You get the same amount of free memory as before, just the phone reports it
incorrectly.

> - default tones are erased, 4.28 comes without a gallery
As long as you back up the contents of the phone before you get it flashed,
you will be able to restore the gallery(and all the tones) afterwards.

No idea what that is, unless it's asking for a security code or somthing...

I have been told that although 4.28 increases the photo quality, the video
quality is decreased
Have also heard RUMOURS that 4.28 can cause problems with BT carkits
