Well i bout this phone in UK on my way to Uganda. The phone has poor battery. the battery spends 48hrs and its off. it common problem with this Nokia 6300.
for all uganda music downloads and ugandan musicians profile at www.ugandanmusicians.com
That's a total of 330 messages so far and still no warning of low message memory.
the good thing is only that it is good for calling, the camera is great, music player is unbeliveable but battery is little good. bad thing it is that it is not symbian
Where is your phone made ?!
What it says under the battery ?!
I face some problem in configuration setting. i can't add personal config. sett. when i try to add a message showen " cannot add new account. memory full." i also face problem in receving internet/mms/wap setting.. when i recive internet/mms/wap setting message showen "setting only for 70 series" what can i do?
got this phone,only thing i could say is it scratches easily,poor battery life, poor camera which is way below average!
seeing as i already have a 6300 with v5.00 firmware which is excellent and that the 6301 will only b avaliable on ORANGE, and 6301 only has a few improvments there's no need for me to upgrade to THAT!!!
the *improvement* 6300 is already been Released the Nokia 6301
Nokia 6301 differs from 6300 these are the *improvements*:
30MB Built in Memory
Wi-Fi UMA Technology
so who's going to Upgrade ? !
to JIMBO74: right i guess u can't have all the ORANGE gprs/wap and the actuall ORANGE internet settings stored in ur phone, if contact orange customer service they will send u all the proper settings u need, u will then b able to download v5.00 firmware OTA.
Hi all, Love the 6300. My only gripe is the poor battery life where do you find the phone updates cant find it on the european nokia site?? Cheers
Nokia will soon release an upgrade to Nokia 6300
check it out here:
btw, my nokia 6233 stuff (games, applications, themes) in my blog will also work with nokia 6300.
yeah i did buy it sim free mate but i am on orange the same as u mate
Thanks original jamaican, i hardly receive 1 phone call a day, with my old nokia 6230 I managed the accu to last for a whole week
Last year I switched to SE K800, very solid device, cant say Sony is bad, but the phone is way to big. I am not sure who wins the contest between Nokia and Sony and on which fronts Nokia beats SE, but 6300 is on top list then it should be a good phone. Ill see in a couple of days.
to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN: well it looks as tho nokia has done a cracking job in releasing firmware update v5.00 as it has seemed to have resolved a whole lot of problems, lets keep our fingers crossed and hope they release another update to solve ur video playback niggle :-)
to BOB: oh right, wht network r u with mate, im with ORANGE, I did read in the manual that OTA software updates r network dependant, looks as tho ur ndtwork doesnt support it, i don't know what to suggest now then
"the chinese version comes with a leather pouch."
To orig. jamaican.
Thats information that i didnt know !
Thx for the tip.I will do as you said.
Thx again :)
I am in love in nokia 6300 :D
Nokia is simply the BEST. They do listen to people and sometimes they themselves realise that they can make life easier for people which benefits them too in terms of sales and fans...hence a thing called firmware updates.
After reading several reviews I put 2 and 2 together and figured out that the volume keys were the only keys used for zoom.
Quite a few reviewers NEVER mentioned the D PAD as an option for zooming and one particular reviewer said "the volume keys are used for zooming but they are a bit hard to press so if zooming is your thing forget it" (quoted message).
When I read that I was so disappointed and I said why make the volume keys be the only ones for zooming, it would be much better and more comfortable if the D PAD was the source for zooming. Nevertheless I wanted the 6300 and when I got it and tested out the camera, whola, the up and down keys were used to control the zooming. I said to myself, apparently Nokia heard me and didn't want to disappoint me :-).
I checked the firmware revision sometime after and saw version 5.00 so I said, most people complained about battery problems among other things and they said they had version 4.20 and 4.71 so I told myself that more than likely the official reviewers (including GSMArena's own reviewer) got the 6300 when it had 4.20 and 4.71 which is why NONE of them ever mentioned the D PAD to zoom in when taking photos or shooting videos.
v5.00 fixed and made a whole of features better. I have no complaints with my 6300 whatsoever.
Well, I have a little gripe but it's not really something to make a very big deal about...it would be so nice if the 6300 could play back videos in 240x320. I'm hoping that Nokia will release one of their magical firmwares with an update to the video resolution so that videos will play back in 240x320. Regardless the videos are ok as it is now.
Wazomba, in terms of me figuring out that the volume keys were the only zoom keys...as you can see, I'm sharp!
