Good phone if it's your first phone and you're clueless as to how badly companies lock down phones. You'll love it even more after the recent firmware update that NSU put out. Thank god for that, now I can use 3rd party apps on Tmo.
how come you can not put more than one number on a contacts name;so you have to put sherry's home one contact then sherry' cell on another...
anonymous, 16 May 2008where is the flashlight of this phone you mean flash for the camera there is no flash light :)
I had 6103. was much better in battery performance and picture quality. Although 6263 has 1.3 MP, the picture quality isn't satisfactory.i had high hopes. very poor battery performance. the music quality on the speaker is average. Only good thing i think is the looks. Main display is hard to read under sunlight. looks like i made a bad choice.
Does anyone know if this phone when the flip is open, is supposed to display a white screen on the outside external screen? Most phones will display a company logo....but this phone displays just a white screen.
I want to know!
Can i put Dictionary there?? Can i read PDF file on this mobile. Pls let me know.. if its availible, i will buy it today.
I just got this phone and I like it alot so far. The battery only lasts me about a day but I use the music player, radio and text and voice a ton during the day. People are complaining about the audio quality but it actually isn't that bad , I have however noticed the hiss noise but I've gotten use to it since I've had the phone, I think it's because the speaker is so loud, when I turn down the volume a bit I can't hear it all. Reception A+ however I live in a metro area.
It's impossible to find a light, durable clamshell phone with a long battery life. This is the closest thing I've found. Battery improves to about 4 days using GSM, it has decent resolution and Nokia software is by far the best. Reasonably priced ~AUD$350.
I bought my 6263 in January and overall it has been ok. The voice clarity could be better, but it has some nice features. My battery life has been ok as well, generally I have to charge it every 3 days. I send a lot of text messages daily. When I use it to talk a moderate amount, send text messages, and use the music player, then it has to be charged more frequently - every 1 to 2 days depending on the hours of use. As far as reliability goes...mine quit working tonight. It's about 3 months old and has been handled with care. I've got to visit the T-Mobile store tomorrow. It's got a 1 year warranty so hopefully there won't be a problem getting a replacement.
phone is affordable and looks like a decent clam phone. fits the pocket nicely and feels sturdy. i think i'll get one as an extra phone. one question though, could you use the flash of the camera as a flash light?
Love the Nokia 6263 the mp3 player is flawless and the phone is very easy to navigate through.
I noticed the same problems and a few more
- static while talking, bad voice clarity
- hiss even when not on call from the voice speaker
- slow menu response
- low reception, i compared with a blackberry on t-mobile
- average battery life
- music player also not good clarity
- my phone has a protruding keypad frame on the left..
- nice physical design and soft buttons.
overall, i wouldn't recommend this phone.
This phone really needs to be called back. I'm on my 4th replacement since December. My battery life is way off. The reception is terrible especially in a home area. And another problem is the voice clarity always seem to turn itself on. And I noticed alot of static when talking to someone.
I loved my Nokia 6101 of two year ago so when I saw the 6263 it seemed like a great upgrade. I loved the feel and weight - same keypad, navigation as my other so that was bonus, not having to learn a new phone. WHAT a MISTAKE!! $70.00 after rebate in January right? Today they are FREE, the only real complaint I have is the Biggest for me. Battery time!!! NO WAY is this 270 hrs of standby, right out of the box I got 2 days of use from the newly charged battery.
WHO is reviewing these? Every review sounds like a dream. I make an average of 3 calls per day,about 2mn 40 seconds each, don't use the mp3 player, don't surf the net, even had the salesperson turn off anything that might be draining the battery like the screen saver and I barely get 24 hours standby on the thing.
T Mobil did send me a back up battery but what a pain. The 6101 would last me a week, turned on the entire time -charged every Sunday evening. This is a HUGE dissapointment. Two years to go ...I think I'll find an unlocked 6101 on ebay and cut my losses.
This phone ROCKS it has very good design and has lots of featuresa and I think this phone is the most beautiful created by NOKIA
I'm a SE but when i saw this phone it looks good and for all of the phone of NOKIA I like this the best! this phone is good! and has lots lots of good features
To anyone that is interested in a similar product with a slimmer design, may i suggest the Samsung e730. It has the basic versions of features that this phone has in a sleeker design.
this phone is actually intended to be an upgrade from the 6126/6133 - albeit a small one, and i prefer the design of the former. however, the t-mobile version does remove the weird DRM stuff that was on the t-mobile version of the 6133 (like not being able to set MP3s as ringtones or allowing data access from 3rd party apps) but it does so at the cost of a cool sleek design before. it also looks bulkier.
this obviously is a phone that was designed tightly with US carriers intended to benefit the service providers, not the customers which is why so many people flock to ebay to buy unlocked versions of euro phones rather than deal with the watered-down pieces of junk nokias that the us carriers provide.
