my opinion is that 6300 is better then 6233 for these reasons:
slimmer lighter body(better designed)
miniUSB slot(which i need)
6300 can be unlocked(6233 is BB5 protected can NOT be unlocked)
Well, I hesitate between Nokia 6300 and Nokia 6233 as I see the only deference between them is the better display on 6300!
But 6233 has 3G and stereo speakers, what is your oppinion?
i have this phone and every other phone and they're all useless, i tell my 6300 to kiss my wife when im watching football and it goes too far and fondles her a bit more than i am comfortable with. in conclusion the 6300 is brilliant with an excellent silk factor...
who cares bout ringtones a phone should what it wants it to.
as lon you can recieve and make calls.
so u ignorant no brainer dickless pratts can f of
Some time back when I was in Karachi, i saw a sign board displaying this set. My friend Tabita got interested to buy the 6300 soon. She asked me for the opinion, I said i have no idea about this model. Moreover, and except some older models---Nokia cell phones never clicked me and I am fan and user of SE phones and currently using Sony ER K-790 and i-mate phones. Last week she bought the 6300 from the local mz shop in Karachi. On her request; I am writing this opinion.
Quote: The phone is good with slim line design. The screen is bright and impressive to look at but it consumes most upper portion in a bit odd proportion with a control curser patched just in between. The display is decent but I could not find much diffrence in image quality while comparing with my Motorola Rizer series set, who doesnt boast about color jargon such as 16 M colors or so. The display measurement could be slightly better but in no way out class my other set the MOTO-R. The video
streaming is below average as it has blocks in recorded footage so vivid to be denied. Stills are fairly decent but does not seem as sharp as of older Nokia N-73 which my boy friend has. Sound, music, entertainment options fairly are Ok. Battery Life could annoy many if you listen plently of music with display option on. usb Storage system is OK, nothing special, most brands give this option. I should feel contended with my new 6300, but some how it leaves an unsatisfied feeling after paying 18 + PKR.
UNQUOTE: That all folks and given the above it is a decent set and my view it does not deserve an A plus. On a scale of 1 to 10. It should merit 7.1. Thanks.
Very solid feel, metal finish is absolutely stunning, as is the screen quality.
Buttons are of perfect size, on drunken nights out, msgs turn out perfectly legible, which never happened on my last two phones.
Only downside is the camera (average) and volume buttons.
Also, the metal back plate tends to get scratched easily, especially when carrying car keys etc in same hand as the phone.
Overall, though, an excellent product.
i am using since 98 hours .
phone is cool ,\
battery life is very bad
volume switch is too hard
veery hard to configure for gprs
can i use any other battery with it

Someone mentioned that people won't buy it in the U.S...
that's likely because Nokia promised a Q1 release, but doesn't even have it on their American website. Why?
People in the U.S. won't buy it because it isn't available.
Nice, slim and looks quaility but ringing volumn looks like slightly soft.I dun understand why when play the song it is very loud but when the same song play out as ringer tone it is not loud enough. Battery not long lasting enough.
Hi nice phone but I cant change the idle state font colour in display settings. I wanted to change the main display screen font to white because of dark wallpaper but I cant. On previous phones it was the idle state font but it looks like it only works for the date display on this phone. Could anyone check this out. Ta
This phone is seriously an awesome 1,
very slim n stylish,
it is much better than i thought !!!
I doubt it would sell well here in USA. Motorola dominates the market here. And also, the 6300 I got is quad band - it says it on the box (EGSM850, EGSM900, and GSM1800/1900) BUT the phone is advertised on all websites I have seen as tri-band phone (900/1800/1900) so most people wouldn't buy it for that reason. I had a US version 8801 before the 6300 and the 6300 gets better reception then the 8801 for sure (Southern California) so for those of you who are wandering if this phone works well in USA, it does - I haven't had one problem or dropped call with it, works really well. Cheers to a kick ass phone - the best NOKIA yet!
you would think nokia would have just put bl5c batt in the first place and is this phone selling good in usa , here in england it sold really well still is ,
it wont blow up used mine now for 6 weeks no problem did make me smile when you said may blow up about time people had a laugh in here though
can't understand why nokia is not giving without camera option for 6300 like the 6021 and 6020....
you know why nokia didnt click in U.S.? because people there has brains so they wont go for nokia,,.. they will just fool you with the looks and the name and the quality "disposable" compare to other phones.. and 1 more thing, people are saying that nokia is a friendly user (easy to use) but all the phones now is easy to use, the thing is they dont have time or they dont have brains to learn how to use other phones..! m i ryt? peace out yall!
I swapped the original battery with a BL-5C. Very easy to do. Just find something like a small file and just sand about a qarter of an inch strip(3-4mm on the top where the pin connectors are (both sides). It just takes a few strokes (about a 1mm on both sides) to make it fit and thats it, done. Haven't used it yet, just did that so I can't tell how long the battery will last but it works fine so far. If my phone blows up, I'll let you know :-) Cheers
