When you lock your Nokia 6300 by pressing "middle button" then * try to push one time the "NO" button.This trick will put the brightness down in a second instead of waiting a minute.And if you want a more silent tone use your favorate mp3 tune after voluming it down using a wave editor.
To RESINOUS MONSTER:
People always say they want this and want that in a mobile. Do you people ever stop to think that if the manufacturers provided everything you squeal about...the price would probably be too hefty for us to afford. You can't get it all in this world.
There has to be some cut back somewhere. The 6233 and 6280 has VGA video recording but yet it only stores up to 500 contacts...the REASON I did NOT buy it because the bottom line is that it's a phone and the telephony area comes first and foremost. I'm coming from a 6230 which had a storage capacity of 1,000...getting a 6233 or 6280 as a replacement for my 6230 would have been a downgrade because I had more than 500 contacts in my 6230. In life you have to give and take and move on.
The battery life is awful, other than that, a v good phone & does what is says on the tin.
Make sure you get a car charger and a spare for the office. Come on Nokia, sort it out!
If the phone book memory is full,can the memory card help in this case to provide memory for the phone book ??
the battery is the main problem...the rest quite ok..but soon i goin to sell this phone..wanna try 6500 slide
Greetings. It was after a couple of months of deliberations that i zoned in on the 6300. two weeks down the line i havent really been disappointed. Battery life is just about ok (the phone will give you a day-and-a-half with moderate use of all the functions). So unless you're positively jacking off to those measly mms vids all day, the battery should not be a prob.
Music player is excellent though the camera is average to below average. Detailed resolution , even in daylight, is a joke and the less said about night-time pics the better.
Probably the worst drawback of the 6300 is the QCIF video recording. Why oh why did Nokia spoil a perfectly capable handset by not including qvga recording capability.
Is there any freaking software that will enable me to record vga vids huh?
How does it handle the 2 GB card?
Answers most welcome...
Now the good part... the phone works like charm - fast and responsive UI, the wallpapers look great, texting is a pleasure, the basica are all taken care of really well. If only the video was vga :-(

@ gui mart:
how come ur battery lasted for 5 days??
evn when i use it fr ordinary purpose it finishes in maximum 1 n a 1/2 day! (confused)
And u just said dat ur phone has 3300 messages although RICI posted dat in his phone da error came as his messages exceeded upto 680 msgs!?!?!
i love my phone, the battery lasts 5 days if im not playing radio or music. i've got 3300 messages in the inbox and counting. the major problem is that it has A LOT of scratches all over it :(
I can't play mp4. i can play only 3gp.i don't like 3gp image quality is very bad.
design is very good and attractive.battery life is very short. only can use one day.
other bad thing is speaker is heated on long talking (i mean only 30 minutes).
i bought my mobile last friday.its very beautiful but one thing which disturb me that is its batery timing. its only took only one day then i have to recharge it againg please tell me the right solution.
I agree, the battery life is poor. I am lucky to get 2 full days out of it with ordinary use.
this phone is the best phone i have ever had and it works perfectly for me. so if u have any problems with ur phone tell me
Does anyone find that this phone has a very poor battery life. By this I mean it does not take very long for it to run out. Just 2-3 days!? This cant be the quality that Nokia stands for can it?!
To XEESHAN (part 3 cont.):
It's NOT too wise to use a particular bit rate for every video you encode. For example, whereas 196kbps will work fine for a music video, it may NOT work well for a movie as movies are larger, hence more stress on the phone, so the playback may be a bit jerky. I normally use 128kbps for movies. I see no problems with that bit rate for anything at all I encode.
i have been using this phone and all of a sudden the phone gets switched off. pls tel me what i shud to get this rectified. also the phone gets heated if i continously use for 1hr or more. kindly advice
1. The phone does have streaming audio/video facility so internet radio should be possible...tho i have never used it. Youtube works well on this phone.
2. As far as i know there is no version of real player as yet. Yet the built in Xpress music player is more than great. For example it has all the options including Fast Forward and backward that some symbians and SE'd don't have and has good sound quality, built-in equaliser, music library, playlists etc..
