Those of you who complain about the # sign key (aka pound and hash key)...all of you who complain that this key doesn't work anymore shouldn't feel too bad because this key does MORE than silent the phone, it will prevent calls from coming through as it switches the phone to LINE 2 and the average cell phone user only uses one line. How many people of you realised that this silent feature is dangerous ?
However, it works FINE on my phone even though I have v5.00. I guess because it was done at the factory.
Once again, this is a DANGEROUS feature because it switches the phone to LINE 2 so even if you subscribed for both lines, whoever calls you on LINE 1 WON'T get through to you.
This was of silenting the phone should be used with caution or you may miss emergency calls from loved ones or friends.
Do me a favour and tell me all the problems that 4.20 or 4.71 had. As I told you, I recently purchased mine so it came with v5.00 from the factory sim free and unlocked straight from Nokia Hungary.
After reading what several opinionists wrote, I have learnt that there were overheating and battery running out too fast - problems, with the older firmwares. Can you please list all the problems you had before you upgraded to v5.00 ?
I am yet to see a thorough listing of the problems which existed with the older firmwares. Lastly, did you find the sound output from the ring volume (when set to LEVEL 5) and music player volume (when set to LEVEL 10) to be low when you had v4.71 ? I ask because I want to know if v5.00 also increased the volume. I have no idea what problems existed before because my phone came with v5.00.
Please just list all the problems you experienced before you upgraded to v5.00. Thanks WAZOMBA.
heating problems, what heating probs? even when my phone had the old firmware it never overheated, must b the make of the phone, coz i STRESS the HUNGARIAN make doesnt have heating probs what so ever, now onto lack of infared port, this phone does not need infared , it has bluetooth which we all know outclasses infared in every area, also with miniusb u dont need the DREADED INFARED!!!!
to the GUY who sent the last POST, u need to get ur facts right mate, i agree that it is a bad phone with v4.71 firware. what firmware is ur phone? coz once u have v.5.00 its solves alot of problems, i know coz when bought mine it had v4.75, battery wud not last for a day hanged up calls, memory card probs, but after downloading v.500 firmware im amazed how the lastest firmware has rectified those problems, my battery now lasts twice as long
original jamican lys alot 6300 is not a gud fone i have 1 too he doesnt tell u the disadvantages the disadvanteges r bad battery life no infrared port if u trasfer things into memory card the memory card logo dissapears if u talk for 2 mins on thje fone it gets hot and it starts making ur ear warm and isnt so good voume better than this is w810i
to ORIGINAL JAMAICAN, yes i have that problem on my phone to, but that feature isnt important to, the main fact is after downloading v5.00 firmware it rectifies most glitches the old firmware had n im not joking, battery life has drastically improved n also the performance of the phone is much better, im very happy with my HUNGARIAN model its now excellent in every area, take care matey :-)
I'm surprised to know that you only get an hour out of your phone. I get a lot of talk time out of mines. Yesterday morning I charged it and left for work on a full charge. I was on repetitive calls throughout the day - some calls were 5 mins., 10 mins, at one point 45 mins. and last night 1hr. 2mins. and I still have a little less that half charge. I honestly can't complain.
What version firmware do you have ?
Once you have NOKIA 6300 with firmware revision version 5.00 your phone will make you happy. It handles MPEG 4 and H.264 videos quite nicely and battery life is excellent also.
Mine was made in Hungary as well. It was purchased late August so it came with firmware v5.00.
Some people say that when they upgrade to v5.00 from 4.71 they experience a glitch where holding down the # sign key doesn't give you the silent feature again. Do you have that problem too ?
to ABDULLAH to get v.5.00 it is best to download it via the phone, go to settings scroll to PHONE select that then scroll
to PHONE UPDATES u will see to options CURRENT PHONE SOFTWARE and DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE select download software n it will connect u to nokia n shud give u v.5.00 it b as an application n u need to install it just follow the instructions n u shud b ok.
Hello guys. Planning to buy this phone. Can I open PDF documents with this phone? Thanks alot.
thanx original_Jamaican helped a lot.
but how can i get firmware v5.00?
hey evry1 i'd just bought my nokia 6300 last week and i was very satisfied at first by its superb screen and its sound.
it's very very good and clear.
But the performance of the battery is not too good expecially when receiving a call , the battery only last max. 1 hour and it makes me hv to charge it while making/receiving a phone call all d time
and yes it does sucks
You can solve the problem by buying a secondary battery and i believe it will helps a lot as nokia 6300 take around 2-3 hours to be fully charged
It's rather annoying as well..
Beside the battery life , i'm very satisfied w/ thiz fone .
The keypad is good , the design of the fone is great.
I'll bet thiz fone will still available for the next 2 years cuz it will never get old fashioned by its slimness and its design'
GO NOKIA !!!!!!!!!
im quite positive its supports 4GB or more micro sd card coz in the manual it doesnt state a maximum of how much ìt can goe upto, hope this is of some help.
right just found my nokia 3.5mm audio headphone adapter n by using proper earphones/headphones im even more amazed by the sound quality n it beats the sound of my se w800 hands down, my 6300 is what ill b listening to my mp3/wma tracks on its great, i think the se walkman phone series has a rival n its the budget nokia 6300 :-)
the audio output of the phone n gives a sound boost, n believe it does work, the sound through the headset is on par with my se w800 when u use the editable equalizer with the 5 bars set to full and also have the STEREO WIDENING feature set to on, im very impressed indeed, but then thats only my opinion
to all 6300 USERS, the sound quality on this phone has impressed me very much even tho it only has 1 speaker its loud n clear, my advice to everybody when listening to music is to use the editable equalizer n set the 5 frequency bars to FULL u will this increases the loudness of the speaker a little with hardly any distortion, also when listening 2 music with the supplied headset make sure STEREO WIDENING is set to ON as this enhances
