I'm sad to hear that the firmware problems are starting bothering again some users. As I posted a few months ago, NOKIA changed my phone because it was restarting. I am very dissapointed from the company because they took my phone to service on September 4 and they gave it back to me on October 30!
I hope that you all have a "simple" firmware problem. I have my own phone with the same 5.50 Version and there are no problems with this...
Recently I tried something else. I put the battery of my previous 6230i (BL-5C) by scratching it's corners into my 6300 and until now the phone lasts 3 days and I have enough battery for one more day. It's funny because my old battery is 2.5 years old!!!!
Imagine what will happen with a new 1020mA BL-5C battery!!!!
And don't listen to anyone that says that this type of battery might be dangerous. They only changed the size (so as not to fit) and the capacity (which in 6300 is very POOR).
That's why I believe that 6300 is expensive and Nokia dissapointing. Maybe the rude anontymous british user will say awful comments against me again like "greek the geek" but the truth remains the same.
Why Nokia doesn't put into the retail box a cable for a PC connect? Why do they put only an 128MB microSD? Why does the phone has a funny battery?
Sad sad sad... They should know that previous users of the best ever phone, 6230i are not satisfied.
And believe me... After all these problems I still love my slim Finn...
Travel chargers for Nokia phone have been around for a long time. Even if the battery life is excellent many times you get a travel charger. My previous phone, Nokia 6230 had a very long battery life. I got 5 days easily and sometimes more, maybe 6 1/2 days was the longest...yet it came with a travel charger. It's all about compactness and less cumbersome.
Even some 3310s (released in year 2000) came with travel chargers.
The reason why you only get 1 day out of your phone is because you play with it a lot. I easily get several days out of my phone. The longest I ever used the phone without recharging was 4 days.
Battery life as always, is dependent on what you do with the phone.
love my phone...6300 is a good choice...

hmmm! Damn! Anyone interested in buying a miniSD card for £5? :D
Bummer, now I have to order another one! :S
Although... I dont really need lots of space, thats why I bought iPod :))
Thanks for the info mate!!
I decided to take out my memory card on Saturday and noticed one major thing in particular. The phone started up much faster!
Normally when I turn it on with the MicroSD in the phone, it goes through the PIN code and hand shaking very quickly but then a white screen comes up and it takes about 30 secs. before the standby screen comes up.
After I removed the card and turned on the phone, after the hand shaking, the standby screen came up instantly. But, shortly after I went to the menu the phone froze for about 10 secs., then came back to normal. After playing around with it, about 2 mins. later it froze again and this time it did a quick reset with a blink of white then it went back to standby mode. I told myself that there was still some corruption somewhere so I reflashed my phone with the same 5.50 and after that it has not froze nor reset.
Everything seems to be perfect now and the memory card is still out of the phone. I'm going to scan the card for virus and probably format it before putting it back into the phone.
i really want to said the design of 6300 is wonderfull but the mp3 is very low i have 6300 and offer to you to buy this mobile thanks for your good website
Don't try the MiniSD in your phone. It WON'T fit and even if you got it to fit you could possibly damage your phone based on the fact that the phone wasn't designed to work with that card.
uhm... I kind of bought a miniSD memory card, instead of microSD one! :S
Will it fit?!?! I looked up on wikipedia, miniSD is a bit larger, but the specs are completely the same! Please respond asap!
Thanks in advance! ^^
6233 is actually much better than 6300 especially in battery life (again.........) and at the voice.
But it's a little bit big and ungly. If you don't care about the look, then the 6233 it's an awsome phone!
6300......I bought it on 12 Sept,2007 and i love my phone BUT i cant stand the low battery life. wen i make/receive calls in a day (roughly 30 minutes in total), almost 20 SMSs a day...i have to charge my battery.

im Surprised to hear that it Restarts with Firmware V5.50
there must a File in your phone which is currupt e.g. Theme,Music file
thats what makes most phones Restart
it did with my older 6230i
never happend with 6230 though
Have you downloaded from the net a theme or something? Try to put out your memory card. Then you'll see if the phone has problem or something in the microSD or the microSD itself.
I'm not a female, I am male 33 yrs old from Athens, Greece (are you disappointed???).
If a file makes problem to your firmware, then you cellphone might need format... Or maybe you have a virus (I hope not!)...
Maybe I have a bad file on it somewhere. I already reinstalled the firmware once, I was planning on doing it a second time...today in fact.
Popocatepetl, I get the impression that you are a female, are you ?
My phone doesn't restart with the version 5.50. Maybe yoy should reinstall the firmware. Or throwit into a can
