to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN: yeah thats right mate, how did u know that? now ive got v5.00 firmware the ZOOM is controlled by the D-PAD
to BOB: u can upgrade ur phone in PHONE UPDATES, trust me i know, ive done it myself u got 3 options CURRENT PHONE SOFTWARE, DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE, INSTALL PHONE SOFTWARE, if u go straight to option 3 it will say 'no software to install' u need to download it first (option 2) which will connect u 2 noki n shud give u v5.00 firmware as a APPLICATION, u then will b able to install it and v5.00 will b loaded in ur phone
Quick question, with 4.75 only the volume keys were functional for zooming right ?
Well there's one way you can tell that it's not chinese made...the chinese version comes with a leather pouch. When you are in the store ask them to open the packaged boxes and whichever box doesn't have a leather pouch then you can ask them to take off the back cover of the phone and check under the battery to see where it was manufactured. Once it's made by a European country just go ahead and take it, same high quality components are found in all European models BUT if you want to frustrate the sales rep then you can ask them to check them all until you find a 'Made By Hungary' version.
Np,i will send it who wants it.
To orig.jamaican. I know that your cell phone is "made in hungary" ,but how can i go to the shop and ask "can you give me -made in hungary nokia 6300" :D
Is there another way to update your phone? I tried in phone settings but it says no software to install. I tried nokia updater on pc it says I have the current version 4.70???
yeah mine was made in HUNGARY, but when i first got mine it had firmare v4.75 and had a few problems, battery wud only last a day when making calls, texing, taking photos, playing music, but after upgrading to v5.00 battery peformance is excellent n ive got no complaints nnw with my HUNGARIAN made 6300
Keep the photos and video I sent you in your inbox so if anybody else in here wants to see them you can easily FORWARD it to them. It's a tedious process to attach so many photos and a fairly huge video clip.
People ask PIKABU to send you 6300 photos and video if you are deciding to buy but want to see some good samples first.
PEOPLE, as I said before, my NOKIA 6300 was made in HUNGARY and I recognize it as being a top class version. Believe it or not, the screen is even prettier than the 'Made by Nokia' (which is the Asian/Chinese) version. Ever since I compared my old Hungarian 6230 to the Chinese version and saw the MAJOR difference in screen quality I decided to stick to Hungary made phones. You will find that NOT only the screen are of higher class, the sound system too, the sound is as sharp as the screen :-)
You can't go wrong with a HUNGARIAN made 6300 with firmware v5.00.
6110 - 6230 - 6230i - 6233 - 6300. That is what I call evolution. But I still use my good old 6230 from time to time
I think i know what that photo means where it says MADE IN HUNGARY if u get a 6300 that was made in hungary ur getting a top class 6300 with excellent perfomance
6300 is an amazing phone, excellent 16million colour screen, great sound quality and the battery performance isnt to bad either.
Pictures are excellent,and video is pretty good ! :)
I will definitely buy 6300,just to collect some more money :).
Only thing which i am worried is "MADE IN (BY) " thing. On this picture it is -made in hungary- ...
to JIMBO74: hang on mate did u buy ur 6300 SIM FREE, have u got ur network internet settings stored in ur phone, im on ORANGE and i managed to download the update directly from my phone, i think that service is network dependant an not all networks allow OTA upgrading, u cud try the nokia updating software that is bundled on the cdrom i think, but u need broadband and a miniusb cable any mini usb cable will work with the 6300
to JIMBO74: what network are with? im with ORANGE and it did it for me now problems, i think that option is NETWORK dependant, an not all the networks allow to download OTA phone updates, u cud try the nokia phone updating software that i think is bundled on the cdrom u get but u need broadband to download it, if u can't do that mate then i don't know what to suggest sorry :-(
i tried that mate but when it goes to connect to the intrnet it says no network connection unable to down load..... any ideas???
to JIMBO74: I posted a comment on here earlier describing how to get v5.00 fimware on ur phone, u can download it directly from ur 6300, go to the post and follow my instructions and u should get v5.00 firmware no problem :-)
Well I guess middle-range high end is probably the best way to describe it because as you know, Nokia considers their N series phone as their utmost high end. I just DON'T want any smartphones, whether it be Nokia or any other brand. They are all too buggy and too slow which is not necessarily the phone manufacturers fault but more a fault on the 3rd party company who creates the OS (Symbian in most cases).
to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN: ive read GSMaren'as review, ive read Mobělereview.coms review, ive read Mobilechoice.coms review, and none of those have had a bad thing to say about this phone they all love it, so i say its great work by NOKIA for making n releasing an OUTSTANDING middle range high end phone :-)
