i agree with you that the 6233 is a good phone but you should keep in mind these 2 phones were made aiming at 2 different markets. both phones has their own ups and downs. watch the official videos of these phones. you will understand what i'm talking about. the videos perfectly describe for what purpose it is built for.
since you're boasting about the 6233, did you notice that the 6233 has only 4.8MB of internal memory even though it says it has 6MB! besides you will find a lot of complains about the 6233 made by the users than there are complains about the 6300.
I have very little reception in the Nokia 6300 set. Is something is to be done to regain this. Please advise.
Yeah, 6233 is DEFINITELY BETTER than 6300. If you just don't care about the design and you just focus more on the functionality and performance(including battery life), then 6233 is CLEARLY a better choice(for me because i'm a little more conscious on the performance and the looks is oftentimes the last in my criteria). Alright, i admit that i was totally fascinated when i saw the 6300 for real in the shop. Everything would have been perfect with this handset and i was about to buy it if would not because of the video resolution. It's far from the VGA video capture resolution of 6233 that the salesgirl is introducing. And for me, having that VGA video capture resolution is CLEARLY a cheat in this price range. I mean, you can't find any other Nokia and other brands i guess that's offering VGA video in this price. And now, i'm totally happy with my 6233. Well, let me break down the differences of this 6233 and 6300:
Advantages of the 6233 over 6300:
1. 6233 is capturing at VGA (640x480 pixels) resolution at 15 fps while the 6300 is just capturing at QCIF (176x144 pixels) resolution still at 15 fps.
2. 6233 got 3D stereo speakers and very loud while 6300 only have mono speakers and it's not loud enough.
3. 6233 got 3G mobile broadband connection (384 kbps) while 6300 is only up to EDGE connection (236.8 kbps).
4. 6233 got better battery life lasts 3-4 days with moderate to heavy use on GSM mode than 6300. (ofcourse because 6300 got 16.7 million colour screen).
5. 6233 has infrared while 6300 doesn't have.
Now for the advantages of 6300 over 6233:
1. 6300 got 16.7 million colour screen while 6233 only got 262,000 colours.
2. 6300 weighs 91 grams while 6233 weighs 110 grams.
3. 6300 is more stylish and slimmer than 6233 that is thicker.. So, afterall of those, i ended up buying the 6233 because i'm feature-conscious and my sister bought the 6300 because she is design-conscious.
Hope that makes clear. Both handsets are great in their own way. If you're feature-conscious, go for 6233. If you're design-conscious, go for 6300. :-)
either add me on msn messenger or email me, i will try to sought out ur problem

When you advise someone to buy another product you are supposed to state the differences NOT repeat something that BOTH products have.
Saying that 6233 have Series 40 3rd Edition, 2 MP cam, memory expandable up to 2GB, Radio, and QVGA display makes you sound silly because 6300 also have all of those!

How to stop the music player in 6300 nokia model. it doesnt have a stop button. once if we start will it continue playing non stop
there is an option called VOICE ENHANCER in your phone. activate it and see whether you still have the problem.
Good day to all,
I would just like to inquire, does anyone know how to do a hard reset for this model (6300) and not just the restore factory settings?
Thanks for this forum. Please my Nokia 6300 is giving me problem of mouth piece, that is my callers do not hear me, and it is charging itself. I need a solution. thanks again.
there's nothing you can do. you can unlock it by yourself but those do-it-yourself methods might not work properly sometimes. take it to a repair center and get it unlocked. nothing else i can think of. sorry man.
Hey guys I hav changed my security code of 6300 n now i hav forgot it So plz can anyone tell me that how can i again change my security code. Thnx in advance
the reset code is 12345. or if you have changed it use the new code to reset it. menu > settings > restore factory settings is the path you should be looking for.
The micro sd card slot is beneath the battery cover (is hot swappable) on the lower side youŽll see the tiny card slot.
This phone is great if you like it you wonŽt be crying for careless things like screen (and I canŽt get why some complain that beauty) or battery (from my point of view itŽaverage) or java because the most of applications in this platform are smaller than 1mb. This phone is great and it has more than deserved the tittle of bestseller.
to xin: oh, also, the 6120c is quad-band and has 3G. i think it's also important to note that.
the newer 6301 is also interesting. it looks pretty much the same as the 6300 and has almost the same features, with the addition of a little better battery and WLAN.
to xin: i was never able to get my hands on a 6120c phone but based on my experience with Symbian phones (which 6120c is), it is really great in terms of the number of applications u can install in it. it is a smartphone so there are PLENTY of applications and utilities available for it. u can install 3D games, camera tools, high quality music players, movie players (like DivX player), even a utility that will put a password on your messages or a security tool that will alert you when your phone gets stolen! the possibilities are endless! in the expense, however, of having vulnerabilities to viruses and even system instabilities like crashing or slowing down of the OS if u improperly use the phone (compare it to a PC).
the 6300 on the other hand, is a series-40 phone (and it is one of the finest at that). the advantage of series-40 phones is the stability and speed of the OS, and there is very little chance that you could ruin it. there are no viruses on series-40 phones and there will never be. the main disadvantage however, is that you can only install JAVA apps.
if you are a techie and likes to use a lot of apps, and if u know how to troubleshoot or even reformat your phone when it starts to have software problems (much like a PC), then i'd say go for the 6120c. otherwise, get the 6300. i myself is a techie but i've just had enough with the instabilities of symbian phones. plus, i simply fell in love with the look of the 6300. =)
