the phone goes bad easily and there is nothing one has to do about it . Maybe the design is not torelable to certain areas in the world e.g the tropics
Its very good to listen, put need more functional. The Software has been corrupt within 1yr. So it need installation I hope this will not happen again. Other funcationality are rally good. Specially "FM" and "RingTones"...Thx to nokia.
hey.please dont buy these phones...it has been 1 and half years since i bought this phone.... now its internal memory is corrupted which makes the installation of new software also impossible...for all the new buyers please be aware..otherwise it is a very good sleek soft keypadded , easy for messaging....but should not use the fm often or messagin often because the software gets corrupted..... my advice "handle with care"
i have been using this phone for the past two yrs(since june2004).i had a lot of good and bad times with it but i learnt to love it.it's really cute phone, a very handy design, suits both men and women well.to discuss the pros and cons:
1.sturdy and attractive design.yeah attractive?surely it is...it used be a head turner when i first bought it.for the first look it appears as though the key pad is impractical .but then with some practice,u will find that this is a very good design as it rarely gave me any RSI even after long message typing.to speak of sturdyness, i dropped the phone for more than ten times..twice on road while ridind on bike..still not even the covers parted.once it just got switched off and turned on again(ofcourse that it does more often than not,i'll tell u later)
2.FM radio: let me tell u , this phone has got the best FM quality any phone in it's class can give u,for that matter to get a better reception phone u may have to spend another 5 or 6k INR(abt $150).The earphones are also good.I can get a clear and loud reception even while driving and in train.
3.SMS capacity:I didn't realise this phone has got such large sms capacity untill i found that my inbox is never overflowing despite the innumerable messages sent by my cellular service provider.
4.battery life: excellent .with normal usage(1/2 hr talk, some gaming) u can get about 3days of usage,even u keep on listening to radio phone will not die upto 9 or more hrs ( or untill it gets switched off by its buggy software)
5.Cellular signal reception is also good...never did it let me down, even in cellar parkings.
1.buggy firmware: while browsing through ringtones sometimes sound suddenly freezes,or while browsing menu items,phone gets switched off and turns on,it can happen even while writing a message,u just never know when..but its there always round the next turn.
2.lack of support for more poly phonic tones.The fact that nokia can provide 5 polyphonic tones in the fixed 35 tones,tells that the they can provide more but still thier marketing strategy dictates otherwise.
Verdict: all in all a good phone which u can go for if u can live with it's minor software bugs( for other things there is always good nokia service there!)
it costs now about 3100 INR (about $68) in india.
yes i do agree with u that it is the best phone in the world ...........cuz it has a lot of cool features like sleeeeeeeeek design
fm radio polyphonic jhankar ringtones +++++++++++++++ i has a good variation of changable x-press covers
one of the best fone in the countries right now ........ by chacha
chacha too have this fone so y don't u give a try to this fone
The best phone u could ever get.......i just love that phone but i dont have that phone but i just love that..........
I purchased this phone recently and already i found a lot of bugs in this, like the light goes of when you browse through the ring tones with the rythmic lights on and also when you choose all small letter (abc) while typing the sms only the first letter will come in small and other will come in Caps..
My friends told me that there is a new software available for this phone at the nokia service center..
I am hoping that it will fix most of the bugs..
and key board is not so easy to use
i am using thsi phopne since july 2005. i really happy with the performance. ringer stops working once, but Nokia guys fix it very promptly and now its workinh fine.the Extraordianry quality of this set is its FM Radio Reception that is awesome. Happy Happy and Happy..........
2300 is a simple nice fone.yet a funky set with all the features i need.ther's one problem that the key pad makes sounds but that can be ignored for sure!but at the end of the day im happy with my set.
i've had this phone since november 2004 (abt 1 year 3-4 months now) and it's dropped a lot of times but still works! Yeah sure it did refuse to turn on one time but after bringing it to fix it was OK already! I think it's OK but I would really luv a colour-screen phone!!
FM reception is simply awesome; it’s entirely up to signals of FM station in ur area, here in Karachi FM reception is splendid
really a user friendly fone, having everything that u need in this very reasonable price ($65)
gud show Nokia
My phone software went off. It flashes the screen on start and then say invalid sim. I tried with many sims. How can I reinstall the phone software?
this realy bad product, we just say this is a fail product that ever nokia made,the software of this phone is easy to damage and also radio hardware.so... be smart if you want to buy nokia product don't choose this one.
the reception fr the radio indoors bcomes very bad and i cnt seem 2 go to a specific remindr to modify it(i have to view all).help pleeeeeeeeease
it is a nice handy set, i have been using it for a week now, its quite typical, four way navigation seems useless . Very delicate
Radio is an additional feature that i really admire(Y). so far very good
Hello, FM radio feature in this mobile phone is just mind blowing. it's been a week since I'm using it and hoping that this wouldn't give any problem in future...
