this is no amazing phone..i like the sliding mechanism and the display..but for a music phone i must say it is way to soft!! it plays decent put not up to music phone quality
This phone is TERRIBLE! Don't buy it!
T-mobile got me to re-up for two years and pay $60 for this phone, which was a huge mistake.
In the beginning, I had problems with the sound quality--others complained that there was reverb, and I too experienced it on my end.
Then, within two months, the speaker intake (where you talk into it) went out so I could hear others but they couldn't hear me.
T-mobile switched the phone but I had to keep the original battery. They tried to get
me to pay for shipping but I complained and
got them to pay for that.
Now it's the battery is approximately six
months old and it's dropping from full to
1/4 in the eight hour period I am at work
and NOT using the phone at all. I just
called T-mobile and I passed the exchange
date with them by 30 days. Now I have to
deal with Nokia, which I will call next.
T-mobile does not have an "alternate" Nokia
swap out phone for this model, so you are
stuck with it--period.
I'm going to see if Verizon or Sprint will
buy me out of my Tmobile contract. I was a
happy 5 year Tmobile customer until I got the
shaft b/c of this phone.
Hi guys, im goin 2 buy a new phone tomorrow.
I thought of taking nokia 5300 express music but i heard it has a slide prob!!!! is dat so plz mail me back asap...
main problem is battery life, otherwise this phone is great. just update the mobile soft than you can get a great and strong music. headphone and loudspeaker also. no tinne sound no fuse sound. its slide is great. if you ignore this bettry problem then you can buy it without any doubt.
5300 does not support charging via USB port. The USB port is mainly for data transfering..So there is nothing wrong with ur phone.. :)
Can the phone charge via the USB port? Some digital cameras, most mp3 players, and some motorola phones can, but my Nokia 5300 isn't. Should it be able to? Please respond. (At least tell me if yours does.)
can u tell the different between the latest 5300(black or grey) which has a logo-"express music" on the handset with the old 5300 red one.please tell me as soon as possible.i am facing some problems.please e-mail email@example.com
I got a bit prob with my 5300... it seems that my speaker is a bit softer for awhile already... it only gone back to its original loudness when i press the phone's casing hard... i changed the casing but the problem still stays... Does anyone have the smae problem???
when you download music from limewire it goes straight on to the micro sd card how do i copy it on to my sim card
cindy.i haven't even use the music player yet since i just got the phone a week ago.i think its a factory defect.anyaway,T-mobile is sending me a new one.hope this one work fine.efe,good for you !!
Hi, was thinking of buying this, this christmas...for myself. Anyway, need a new phone as mine is dead :(. But i want to be able to not to have to carrying around an mp3 player as well as a phone. Music is more important than phone, if it calls and texts i'll be happy. Soooooo, is it actually good for music from anyone who actually owns it...?
I have a question for the 5300.Does it have a ribbon in the slider like the E250 or is there a roller?
How much is the battery life?
I just bought this phone a week ago, and it really plays music at its best!! I really recommend this phone for music lovers like me... FYI the battery really drops when you play music a lot.. I just charge this thing last saturday and its now lowbat.. today is tuesday anyway...
Em Robin.. you posted another opinion about another Nokia phone, you said that you bought it too & that its really bad. You mean you really bought so many Nokia phones or are you just against Nokia? No offence here. Anyway, may I know if the 5300 better than 5200 in terms of camera only? Thanks in advance.
Hi there! I am undecided between the 5300 and 6131... I know there are issues about battery life and sometimes the quality of the device´s materials... I heard how the 6131 sounds, and I must say that´s quite impressive for a phone that has not been made for mp3 player (like the 5300)... Are there any strong differences in sound quality between these two or it is mainly the lateral keys? Thanks in advance!
The battery backup is very bad. the talk time is around 100 mins even under good signal conditions. U have to carry a charger !!!. I complained to nokia customer care by mail / by written complaint. but no response. i went to the nearest nokia care center and i was advised to go to another.. another. but the problem remains. the customere care is very very poor. Even the manual which came along with phone is not having neither E-Mail nor address of the customer care locations. The phone is bulky...
i am very much upset with NOKIA customer care
