if its a nextel you cant you can only use a nextel on nextel or Mike in canada it would also be a 6510 which is a first generation nextel BB its black and white screen no speaker phone for DC or phone. Not alot of applications for it either.

you may or may not have to have it unlocked to use on particular carriers I am not familiar with a 6230 so cant answer any of the questions about it.
