If you want a good looking phone and are not a heavy user buy it. If you want something more practical stick with the 6230i, don't get the 6233 unless you've got 20 20 vision, message font size too small even when set to large, I agree with Rodders, a new version of the 6230i without too many changes, just a bigger better screen, a winner for me.
Had this phone a couple of weeks now, I like it, Yes you can make bigger battery fit, message alert could be a bit louder and ring tone acsends when receiving calls despite having it set on ringing, but it's easy to use and looks good. I think nokia should upgrade the 6230i, bigger screen and similar keypad to this phone, I would certainly by one.
It is possibble to modify the battery from your 6230, this gives quite a bit extra usage time, can anyone tell me how to get voice recorder to playback, very quiet.
hi... thinking of buying 6300.. heard its good but after going through d comments... dono wheather 2buy or not... does d battery has really prob...N wat abt headset N does it has MessageList 2send message... for many at a time.... Rather than send 2 many..i.e., send to list....
This is a GREAT phone! The 16 million colour screen is fantastic! After using this i wont be able to go back to 256k!!! The battery life is not that weak, comes with a 128mb memory card! Get this phone, it's worth it believe me! So slim and sexy too!
I finally got this Nokia 6300 and playing / exploring with it in a week. Yes, I totally agree with the battery of this wonderful mobile phone as short of expectations. It drains quickly using file transfers with the Bluetooth connection while playing mp3 files does not. I am planning to change the BL4C battery with a BL5C to give more boost. There are only two mobile phones from Nokia that I really appreciated with respect to the aesthetic designs, the 6210 & 6300.
i just got mine but the battery life is very short.is that normal. i get max 4 hours
The problem which i heard about this nokia 6300 is
1. Very low batter life (But pplz says that it will be better if u charge it for 10hours first time.)
2. Probleme with the USB. i,e Have to remove that back to remove the usb and i also heard that transfer sometimes not possible here.
3. Sometime memmory card get disappeared from the menu make the user to search for it.
4. Photo and video clarity is not so good.
5. No flash and lens cover.
6. Headset problem.
Very confused whether to make use of it as i ggot this mobile as a gift. So planning to replace it for some other mobile.
BTW I really liked this phone, it's a nokia, it's slim, nnnnnice display, stainless steel and the OS is very stable, not a single crash/lockup/freeze.
well, yes it does support a 2gb mem card (I'm using one in my 6300)
yes, battery life DOES suck. Now I'm worried about global warming with this phone and my nextel iden phone, which requires a charge every single day. the 6300 every 2nd day.
headphones are not the best thing in the world, but they are like 1000 times better than those included with my SE k790. BTW FM reception is superb! I can listen a radio station which is like 250-300 kms away.
it's a little bit louder than my k790, but not as much as older nokias... thanks for those american health and safety people.
I just can't fu....ing understand why would I want to switch to line 2 by pressing the pound key (#) for 2 secs, which is ALSO a shortcut to the silent mode. It's so damn annoying. Today I couldn't place any call for one hour... because I didn't know this "feature".

1) is mp3 player quality nice?
2) does it come with gd quality stereo earpiece?
