it is good and i want to buy it
Yesterday i went to buy this phone but the sales man said that it has major software and hardware problem (same opinion from other shops also).
Is it true that this phone has software and harware problems. Can anyone tell me
This phone is very good, economy. I have purchased this phone on May 2005 and still it working very good. Its sound quality is very good.
it's very baaaad mobile phone..... it's software is just buggy and after i bought it 5 months it had a hardware prob so i tried to get it fixed but they kept saying that it cannot be fixed cuz it's main ic was damaged somehow, idon't know how this happened i was just listening to the radio and it suddenly turned off after i couldn't turn it on again and i made sure that i doesn't related to the battery or SIM card......just a piece of junk.... don't ever think 2 buy that thing
would like to know if i can send PolyRGT to 2300 via net like an sms. how much can i get out of this phone by tweaking the sftwr. can i increase phone book memory, delete some inbuilt rgts and fix new ones in place..
I know im crazy - just would like to give a try.. reply if u have some suggestions
Solution for all Nokia 2300 users:
If anyone of you is facing problems (Hangs, errors etc.) wid this handset, i have a simple & easy solution for u.... just reset your phone & all your problems will be solved: u can reset this set by going to setting & then press "Restore Factory Setting" the phone will ask for the security code, the default code is 12345 (use the other code if u have previously changed it). Please make sure that da battery of phone should be full otherwise if the process of resetting is interpted due to low battery, consiquencess would be fatal... so before resetting ur phone make sure that the battery is full. Enjoy*** use this phone the sound quality of Fm is awasome
Cell phone is not show display, i think the software is deleted. what should i do?
it's better to live without it
very good ghanta phone
cannot detect headset. headset is new. what should i do?
Its a good phone with the attractive body n key style, But hangs sometime the software is not proper. After using it for an year the keys get damage n u will no longer want to keep this phone with u.
no. monophonic only. no polyphonic.
it looks like it came from outer space..aliens!!
can i download polyphonic tones with this phone? replies are much appreciated
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.
i have this handset & i like it . this phone looks good.
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
