i have been using this phone for the past 1 yr.
i didnt face a single problem.the sound clarity is much more louder than the nokia n series.best recommended
It was a great stuff, in it class of price, Great feature, nice performance, and its kind of strong hardware, i just "use and forget it", and i still use it untill this time. But...the design is...well, not so good i think, just too simple. but well, thanks for SE and keep going...! :]
I had a K300i for almost a year and a half. It was a great phone when i bought it. Compared, pound for pound, to other brands at the same price range nothing, I repeat...NOTHING!, came close to it. It has features usually found only on higher-end models but at half the price! It's extremely durable too! I dropped this baby more times than i can remember (even at heights that would make anyone wince or cry out in shock) and it's still working perfectly! Well, except for the joystick which occasionally gets stuck.
Sure it didnt have a card slot, more memory, a better and bigger screen, or what not. If it did, we'd be paying a higher price and the phone wouldn't be considered "budget" now would it? (so whiners, quit complaining! And stop comparing lemons with apples!)
I wouldn't recommend buying one now since there are better phones being churned out by SE (makes for a great second phone though!). But for those lucky enough to have purchased one before; it was money well spent!
You can use Win98 for pc transfer to K300 and back. I use both Win98 and XP for tansfer on my K300. Its a wonderful phone in its class. DCU-11 pack comes with a CD for the driver. Install the driver (USBDriver) in the CD for Win98. Reboot the system and follow other steps to complete the installation. You must know the COM port allocated to it the cable by Win98. Give this information to Myphone Explorer and there it is. You will download and upload with ease.
It is very atrictive mobiles set.
i like it very much,its sound quality is
very best camperision with other mobiles
and other camponies.
the cable must be installed, because windows 98 can't support the cable,.. try downloading it at sonyericsson.com and look for the support and find the cable driver for the handset...
i m having its data cable DCU-11 and using windows 98.
but my windows are not picking its cable data , Can u plz tell me that how can i solve this problem?
thanks in advance
you have to have a usb data cable or infrared adapter to be able to send pictures and etc. after installing, you may download and install myphone explorer at myk300.lasyk.net or the sony ericsson file manager at their website...
if you want to send files from PC to phone and you are using windows xp, you may right click the file then click send to: then another computer(that is if you are using infrared... if USB, better use the any of the two programs i have given...
hope this helps...:-D
Can any 1 plz tell me ,that how to send the pics stored in phone to my pc ?
I owned this phone for a solid 7 months.This is an excellent offering from sony ericsson.For the price you get alot of functionality,decent vga camera,video capture,mp3 playback.This phone is well built and feels solid.I often dropped this phone and toward the end threw it around to test it.it works to this day.OVERALL: 8/10
i have this phone now for about 1 year and 1 month and there is not a single time this mobile phone irritate me
Im a mobile phone lover , i purchased so many sets early but this is the best even compare to symbain's of nokia coz of low price and Outstanding performance.
You can Listen to audio mp3 songs as well as play 3d java games simutaniously , fast processor
Must for medium income people.
Don't waste more time reading just go and get it. You will be never disappointed !!
K300 is an unbeatable phone why?
find another phone brand and model everywhere else offering amazing game performance, good battery, excellent sound in speakers and with a 12Mb memory and never failing infrared... this is the best low-end phone ever made...
well im usin dis ph for d last one n hlf yr...it works nice..fallen sooo many times bt d joystick doesnt wrk properly...n dey shud provide diff buttons 2 select d menu n 2 pick d call...sound quality is superb...bt photo quality is nt gud as d screen is also so tiny..bt still it works nice...
hmm... now my k300 is already 9 months.. and i've proven that this is my best phone ever, very reliable except the joystick, but i always have a way to remedy that since jack and @Doul(from K750 thread) gave me an advice to prevent the malfunction... i'm having a plan of buying an ASUS V66 or V75 so that i could have two phones... one for multimedia(V66/V75 for having every possible multimedia features in such a very cheap price) and one for messaging(k300 coz it has lengthy battery life),.. but still this is the best SE low-priced phone ever made...
This is an excellent phone. I have a K300i (Blue & silver). But there are three major drawbacks: (1) The image & audio/video recording quality is not that good when viewed or played using the phone itself. (2) The battery's standby time is about 2 days maximum when the phone is being used, if unused in anyway whatsoever it increases (3) This is the biggest drawback in this phone and probably in most Sony Ericsson phones -
If you tilt, move, or lift the phone while it's being charged the electricity power supply goes off, it comes back, it goes off again..... since the charger's connector to the phone is very sensitive unlike in many other phones. This situation is not good for the phone's battery and for the phone!
I have been using this phone (K300) for over a year now. It is very good among its class. Just compare this phone specifications with other phones and theirs prices. You will see that K300 stands out among its group. Tell me of other phones with 12MB, IR, Cam, and other features of k300 with the same price of this phone?
It really is a gr8 fone.I dropped it about 5-6 times n its still like new.It wouldve been much better if its memory could have been increased.
never EVER mess with the batteries with outer force. Pirate batteries completely lack electic safety circuits but also original batteries should not in any way be effected with outer force. This is the same for all original batteries from all major handset manufacturers.
Only use original chargers. Original chargers remove current spikes; pirates chargers do not. This means that using pirate chargers can damage your phone since the spikes can destroy some electrical components in the phone.
Sorry to say, but trying to "puncture it [the battery] very lightly" is very foolish. Don't try to repair something you do not understand.
uhh...d cell is k...been usin it 4 a year now...really god price 2 say d least..its got almost everythin a good cell needs...d cam is k..after u set a couple of settings...but the problem is that wen u set d camera u get a 150kb size file n dat cannot open quickly nor is dere lot of space on d fone...tokin of d space...its really less..not enuf 4 ur music n videos
