I always use the 'Noir' theme and never change it.
No Problems occur with this theme.
with others it does.
A few times 6300 owners asked why is it that the ringtone changes to the default Nokia tone whenever a new theme is activated.
The reason is that every theme has a slot for a ringtone. If a theme was customized with a special ringtone then that special ringtone will be inserted in the ringtone slot.
Once a theme is applied, whatever ringtone was being used previously will disappear to make way for the theme's own tone.
If a theme doesn't have a ringtone included along with it, then the OS autmatically uses the default Nokia tone.
Similarly, if a theme wasn't customized with it's own icons or colours then the default icons and colours are used.
The fact of the matter is that themes have total control over the phone's appearance and sounds and if certain areas of themes aren't customized then the default is always used.
Once I had a theme which changed ever aspect of the phone's appearance and sound as well. It had a Spanish girl as the wallpaper and the ringtone was a Spanish one too. The ring was very loud but I didn't keep that theme for long because it was too big. It was in the size range of 2MB. I think it was about 2.5MB.
Too big a theme will hog the phone's ram, demand more power from the CPU and may sometimes bring certain operations to a halt.
Similarly, too high a video quality (especially 512kbps) demands more power from the graphics engine and drains the battery faster.
A theme size of 176KB - 300KB is good to work with. Personally, I rather themes NOT exceeding 176KB. At this size (176KB), technically, the 6300 operates just as fast as if you were using the default Nokia theme which is 41KB.
the N6300 with its 2megapixel camera capable of stills and videos,mp3 and mp4 players,bluetooth with a2dp connectivity and wap browser plus a built-in usb port and micro-sd memory card slot for enhanced file storage,an fm radio and led light effects all in a slim yet sturdy body with a simple retro look is a class in itself,no matter what some malcontents say! this nokia child is perfectly practical! buy it,love it!
Nobody has rights to dictate terms to somebody as anybody can enter or exit 6300 forum at their own will, after all everybody is just exchanging their views on 6300 in this forum. Nokias are good phone so are other makes.
Ancient is the 3310. 6300 isnt old really its just mature and sometime's the mature one's are the greatest!
I carry my phone in my pocket so the 6300 is the perfect size. It has all the features you could want in a cell phone and it looks good. The original battery life is bad but i made a 1400 mAh battery fit. Now it's awesome. I think it's still the best non smart phone available.
When i first got this phone i thought it was good, but outdated very fast, i like its usage and very easy to use as always with the n-series, mostly similar to the other navigations, and sounds are nice and loud and clear. I get problems with the phone where it cuts out during conversation and texting a particular number but that could be a network problem, i'm going to O2 tomorrow cause i'm having problems galore texting with vodafone.
Which phone should i pick N95 or N95 8gig? the reviews i've read seem to give the N95 better ratings than the newer version?
6300 good points: Nice, like the steel finish, with a phone this small thats what you need to give it some protection, menus and phones easy to use, sounds are nice and loud, cheap if buying on PAYT especially as a gift for a child or something, as usual with nokia very easy to text even with T9 easier than any other phones i've used. Oh and nothing to fancy looking just plain but nice looking and screen nice and big.
Bad Points: Poor battery life, keys are quite small and the paints coming off mine, if like advanced technology will get bored with this quite fast, outdated already.
If 6300 isn’t becoming ancient, people wouldn’t be opting for different new models in the world. We can’t afford to change our wives so take the privilege to change your phones quit often as they are less troublesome.LOL
i have this phone before and use it as a mp3 player using my audio adapter. however, the life of a battery is the problem, it takes one day before the battery runs out

Not neccisarily dani my giflfriend has 5610 an her battery's worse than 6300. 6300 is ageing gracefully. Time for upgrade again for me. As business phone 6300 was always on charge in van. For personal use i would say its better. Good luck with 6300 everyone. Bye dani take care.
Battery backup would be better in 5310 its a Music Phone, it needs POWER!
I Agreee there both well Designed
5310 = Music Phone
6300 = All-Rounder
6300 is already more than a year old and outdating very soon. There are many more new models are coming. As the days are going by there are new technological development in new models. I feel its waste of time talking repeatedly high about 6300 which is becoming ancient. We better start trying new models and comment on them.
Dani i do agree. But yes music an batterys better in 5310. Design of both mobile's is good.
@ Bob, Mobzzy
5310 is only better for Music
my mates got 5310 i like it but i wouldnt own one.
Ive got 6300 an 5310 an thats wrong the 6300 is not better. 5310 better looks and battery. Dani what you saying?
I am done with 6300 long back. If 6300 has to be a business phone the battery should last a little longer. I learnt that 6300's getting hot problem has been solved with the new software that has been installed in the new batches coming in the recent months. I have 7500 prism still with me which requires charging everyday but I feel 5310 is far better in battery strength. By the way I am only reffering 5310 with new software. Old 5310s are very low on battery and sound.
