I agree with Jonathan that phone cameras are toys that was why 9300/9300i are the real phone. The trend now is that cheap phones come with cheap low megapixel camera so phone manufacturers install high megapixel camera to expensive phones because camera is the magic word that sells phones. If you all worry about the camera of the phone then buy a good camera and a cheap phone because that way you satisfy yourself better. Why? because no matter how good a phone is today in no time it will be overtaken by a new phone almost immediately as soon as you have just bought it.
Why some buyers of 9300/9300i face performance problem is because they probably purchased the phones from unscruplous dealers. For instance in Malaysia why a 9300i cost different is so wide between a dealer with Zitron warranty (expensive) and AP warranty (cheap)? Be careful with which dealer you buy your phone.
Next time when you buy an expensive phone, take time to go thru the menu and check each of it is working per the manual. Never believe what the dealer told you, believe your own self.
i want to buy this handphone. If i use Maxis, can it be use with PTT.(Push To Talk).
I hope all my friends give a comment for this info.
Can anyone tell me how to password-protect selected document files. I can't seem to find the instruction in the guide book. TQ
I bought 9300i about 3 months ago & faced software problem during initial 2 weeks time. The phone used to Hang simply & i had to remove the battery in order to bring it back to life. Software was required to be re-installed by the company who provided support. In fact, I wrote to Nokia as well about this but there has been no response as yet which is surprising & anoying. Its response is slow, and at times when you try to redial a number it starts reading the Log? so far, i have not been able to find software for this phone like FM radio,Prayer Time etc. I had good experience with Nokia 5140i, it is fast has many applications. I expected that 9300i would have more applications & would be fast but unfotunately it has not turned out to be like that.
Hi!! This phone is great!! Have it now for around two months. I have Apple mac and i thought is going to be a lot of problems cause software that comes with it is only for pc but to my suprise no problems, works fine with isync on mac. i can transfer all my working files from office on mac and send and receive faxes as i need that to run business properly. Overall, great phone for what i need.
I had nokia 9300i 2 months ago,it's working just fine,the thing is it needs a camera,but when u seek for camera + business phone,u should go to nokia 9500 which is big in size,in all cases i see this phone as a great one..
Seems like a lot of people experience similar problems with the 9300i ranging from "reading log" and memory error messages to delayed answering of incomng calls. Most of these problems are caused by only one default setting that needs changing!
The 9300i stores in a log all voice and data call details made and received. The log's default setting is to keep all this data for 30 days, but this fills up the internal memory quickly if you make and/or receive a lot of calls. You can change the default setting for the log to free up more memory by following these steps:
Open the cover and press the "Menu" button. On the toolbar that appears at the top, scroll to "Tools", then select "Log". The log will display on screen. Now press the "Menu" button again and scroll to "Tools" again and then select "Log duration". Change the log duration value to anything less than 30 days (5 to 10 days works fine, which ever suits your needs). Just as a tip - dont make it too few days as your redail function on the green button takes your recent calls from the log and won't show those calls you made a few days ago. Changing the log to 8 days worked for me and all those irritations and frustrations disappeared!
Hi guys just wondering how people find the lack of Vibrate alert when the phone rings. aside from the comments listed on the forums the only concern i have is the fact that the phone doesnt vibrate. Does anyone find this annoying???
I've learned to live without the vibrator and cheapo camera. I do know I can't live as effectively w/o the 9300i. (It is a welcome replacement to the 9500 which malfunctioned after dropping, and probable embedment of kava dust, moisture and rain.)
The user interface is the charm. It's easy and intuitive to input entries. A touchscreen and/or stylus would not be necessary as it just means more smudges or potential of losing another part.
As for the lack of a vibrator there are workarounds:
1. check every so often
2. turn up the ringing volume
3. raise your awareness of its ring
4. check when *you* want to check (your convenience)
The phone cameras are just toys and were never a favorite of mine and I could count all of maybe once or twice I used this feature in lieu of my digital SLR.
The way everything works together on the 9300i makes it the best buy for my businesses. With its updated wifi (g), bluetooth 1.2, and smaller form factor - being much more pocketable - it serves as a happy replacement for the 9500.
The other non-communicator smartphones generally have too small a screen width (< 640) and lack in keyboard comfort. Plus they're Windows based - a natural suspicion of expected frequency of crashes and viruses.
If you've tried the Nokia 9300i you'll appreciate its elegance and completeness.
Does this phone have photocaller facility?Seems like there's no point of adding photos to contacts if it doesn't..can anybody tell me how? Thx
have just moved to a 9300 after my 9500 broke (i had it three years and loved it despite its size). I am so disappointed with the 9300 i am going to send it back! It is much slower than the 9500, and the little joy stick thingy on the inside is far too small to use properly. And don't bother with synching with your computer - you'll lose bits of information from both! And no camera! Who makes a phone these days without even a basic camera! Come on Nokia - you are better than this.
Plz help me. I am going to buy Nokia 9300i next week. I am confused as people are giving different opinions. So help me and give me the true picture.
i am looking ahead to purchase this phone
should i buy this phone ???
plz suggest me something.......
waiting for your reply
hello every one! I am trying to look for a third party software which will allow me to use the Tmobile blackberry service on this phone the way cingular does any one knows any web site where i can buy or download thanks.
Recently bought 9300i. I have problem if called from land line then there can be a delay of up to about 5 seconds after I have have pressed the green answer key before I get connected to the person calling. This is most annoying. I spoke to someone else who has had the same problem with there 9300i. Is it a fault with the phone? I`d like to get some feedback as to other users experience in this regard.
the new phones of nokia are not reliable. they easily hang and runs out of battery fast.
Apalling. So-called business tool. Freezes up, synchronises miserably with Outlook, processor slow. Theoreticaly should have revolutionised my portable business use but now i am out of pocket and seeking alternative. Treo maybe?
I just got the phone and what I have seen this far it looks wonderful on software application
