Good phone in all but two aspects.
1) Gets scratched VERY easily. So you have to be very careful with it.
2) The battery is AWFUL. I would call myself a moderate user, and I have to charge it at least once a day.
I think it's actually a great phone. Yes, it's true that the ring tone volume is quite low, and yes, talk time isn't great either. However this phone makes up for it in every other way! It feels great in your hands, battery time is about 4 days (I think they put in a new type of battery), the camera is good enough(who needs a 5 MP camera in their phone when they already have an 8 MP camera at home?!), and it's very customizable! In short: Great phone!
I support your view somewhat in regards to the 6230 series. The 6300 have a lot of firepower to overthrow the 6230. Far better screen (better than every other new phones too), excellent camera with many times zoom, unlimited and better video recording, slimmer, lighter, more features with the s40v3 OS compared to the s40v2 OS of the 6230.
So many things to make it seemingly overthrow the king for many years, 6230. But somehow, just somehow I found the fun factor to be a little greater with the 6230. I don't know, maybe because I did everything possible with the 6230 and did it on a regular basis, that basically any phone I upgraded to, the fun wouldn't be so high again seeing that I did it all with the 6230.
But maybe, just maybe the 6300 is the present king of the hill based on the evolution and great implementation of features.
Somebody on this forum said that the 6300 is the best thing since slice bread. That's exactly how I felt when I first got the 6300. In the first few weeks of using my 6300, I felt like it had blown away the great 6230...which was the biggest revolution in the mobile phone industry.
News sources say that the 6300 was the best selling phone in 2007 and it may just continue throughout 2008.
Anybody contemplating on whether or not they should buy a 6300, go for it, go for gold!!!
There is ONLY one thing I can conclude, there are several batches of 6300s with factory defects because I don't experience what 3/4 of you complain about.
First of all I got 3hr. 39mins. of talk time on a straight call...and I spent a few minutes doing some stuff on the phone before I received that call so I'm convinced I can get more than that time.
On a second occassion, I made a call and spent exactly 2 hours, then 5 minutes after I received another call and spent another 2 hours...that's (4) FOUR (4) HOURS worth of talking on the SAME CHARGE!!!
On Nokia's official discussion forum there was another issue, the memory card disappearing 3-5 mins. and reappearing occassionally. That was said to be because of a transistor which was mistakenly left out.
Fortunately for me I have had no issues pertaining to the battery or memory card. My phone is flawless. Sorry to hear about you people who got some of the bad apples.
This phone is an absoluetely brilliant phone but it gets scratched very easily!! and can someone please help me ..i dont know how to get the instant messenger!! x
nokai 6300 best fone on the market, serves all needs required, if its faulty get the problem sorted, before you post, fones are not indivdually checked for performance.if you wnat a 100% accurate working handset at first hand, buya vertu, these are the only fones individually tested, ur choice.....problem=get fixed, live happily evr after, spend £3000 and no problems syill live happy
thefore 6300 still rules, and before this was the 6230i
I'm very pleased with my new nokia 6300.it is very light and user freindly with lots of fun with fast browser accsess.To sum it up i think its the best phone owend and would recomend it to all
why are all you guys like fighting on a forum about the 6300 ... its a great fone has every you need for like $200 australian. you's sound like you got nothing better to do than fight over what the best fone is.
"Talk time Up to 3 h 30 min " I am not happy with the above statement. The phone automatically gets cut after 1 h 30 min. I don't Y?

The Updater Software that i have used came from Nokia website and it didn't work well on my phone because as I said it didn't recognized my phone. My phone's software version is 05.50 and the date is 14-08-007. If you would care send me the software updater you have in your home, is it possible that I can update my previous phone software version when I use your updater? Thanks a lot dude.
hi there people
can sumone tell me if ther is any difference in the new 6300 black, compared to the standard 6300(silver and white)?
so fra the only difference i see besides the colour, is a few icons that look different
thanks in advance.
ps is ther any way for the nokia pc suite to work with a mac?
My Nokia Software Updater at home finds it perfectly. The one at work doesn't. The difference is that they are two different versions. The one at home is the older version and it still finds it up to this point, up to last night I checked for updates with the one at home successfully.
Nokia's official discussion forum have quite a few posts talking about this issue. What you are experiencing with your updater is not a strange situation...it applies to a certain amount of phones, including some symbian phones like the 6120 classic.
Someone on the forum said that Nokia representatives explained to them that due to technical difficulties, certain models were removed from the database but would be re-applied to the database as soon as the difficulties are sorted out. Firmwares are crucial indepth programs which alter and control many things in phones...just like how Windows control PCs so it's best to let them do their thing and not be disappointed.
The only mystery is that the one at home finds my phone easily. I don't know what routes or avenues it takes but it seems to bypass the restriction and search for updates for my phone. Maybe I could send it to you and see what happens. Take care.

Thanks dude. I have tried to update it using Nokia PC Suite and the Nokia Software Updater but it says "Connected phone was not recognized.". I don't know what the problem is but Nokia PC Suite identifies my 6300 but when I try to update it several times it always prompt me that my phone was not recognized by the updater.
