@ my friend the original_jamaican, mine was locked to orange. The new one to vodafone. So far so good with this finnish one. As for christian i think you should mind your own business. This forum has gone to pot last time i popped in was with my 6230i review site this 6300 one is ridiculous.
Lots of immature guys in this forum. Fighting like kids on 6300 issue like "my 6300 is great....no no no my 5310 is great...no no no my SE is great". Grow up guys. Nokia, watching this forum must be having a hearty laugh.
Just bought a used Hungarian 6300 (mfd.28-02-07).Am a NOKIA lover. Had been reading many reviews in praise of SE 4nes before so I made attempt to buy one low end WALKMAN with camera, memory slot & radio, which I hated the very moment I scrolled its features. I swapped it the next day 4 this sleek 6300. I like its 16 million colours,the 2 mp camera, the 2GB card memory space & of course the slim metallicity.No problems as yet. Still testing its capability.
I come here because there are still good sensible people here who needs help just the same.
I'm in the island of Jamaica.
I hope your new 6300 works out well. Please let us know what's going on with it as the days go by.
I heard that Hungary had produced a few bad batches of 6300s where a transistor was missing which resulted in the memory card disappearing about 5 minutes after the phone was turned on. Maybe your first Hungarian made 6300 was one of those with a factory fault.
Mine was made in Hungary and I have had no problems whatsoever. I honestly cannot complain.
My previous phone (6230) was made in Hungary and never had any problems after 2 years of using it. I consider Hungarian Nokias as high quality Nokias.
A question, the phones you receive from your company, are they branded or unlocked ? When I say branded I mean if they are locked to a network like Orange, Vodaphone etc. or do you get them sim free and not locked to any network operator ?
You say that some people are like Sheep in here but you forgot to mention one particular person acts like a fool, the person who kept on spamming the forum saying 6300 is worst & 5310 is best. No sensible person would do that repeatedly. That perso needs to grow up.
Many people in here have lost the focus on what the forum is really about. So many OTHER phones are mentioned in here when it should only be one, the 6300!!!
I have to praise the 6230 forum which is four years old now, no one in that forum strayed from the point which is discussing the 6230.
Everyday I get sick and sick of the crap that goes on in here.

ha ha ha ha.............well said Christian
6300 ain't the best phone.....just hyped up.
Igonore my previous comments, i sound like a SE Fanboy bigging K550i up lol
I agree K550i is a good phone, but still no comparism to 6300's Stainless Steel Body and Telephony and Music Playback is Great in 6300
I Love the 6300 because:
Stainless Steel Body
Nice to Hold
Keypad is as great as i said it was
Great UI Love it
Camera is Good enough for a 2MP
nah i mean seriously we all know No Phone is Perfect soo why argue and compare.
I LOVE the 6300, for alot of reasons iv had 2 of them already and Loved both
coming from a 6233 to 6300 is like coming from Angelina Jolie to Jennifer Aniston!
First of all bro why are you comparing a Music Phone to a All-Rounder ??
No Comparism at all, 6300 Blitz's 5310 is most areas
I did il text later an im in jamaica btw sony do great phones an i have to say 5310 is better than 6300 hands down
@ o.j did you get my number ok? Where in world are you? I've been given a 6300 by work again (a different one to one before) made in finland this time. I'll monitor battery and heat issue with this one. My last one was made in hungary.

6300 has Great Style, Dull Performance & features, Camera Works only in light, Sound is very poor, Overall 1 STAR phone.
I think Nokia is enjoying Companies goodwill in India otherwise this company is not near to compete with Sony Ericsson.
6300 could be bad phone due to getting hot problem and lousy battery performance but the screen is mind blowing. I too prefer 5310 which has 16 million colour screen to low performance 6300. There is no legitimacy in 6300 reviews as Nokia is marketing two different quality mobiles in the world market.
Dude, the colours dont matter i soppose
Nokia's Quality of Display's just dont look Natural at all.....
i put the same picture on both phones 6300 and K550i
The image looked so Realistic and Natural on the K550i
even i was shocked i was thinking what is the 16M Doing on the 6300 then???
as for the Keypad of 6300 i dont get mistakes all the time only sometimes i press 1 button i get like 3 from other buttons:S
Im not dissing 6300, iv owned 2 within 1 Year but still im kind off getting sick of it now. after owning 2 i think im getting Bored !
i need to change phones, i dont like 5310 or nany new Nokia's
K550i or maybe a SE Hmmmm..il see anyway for now 6300 !
