This smartphone impressed me highly. The many features of this phone and the fact that they work – internet, e-mail, synchronization with Outlook contacts and calendar, world clock, a converter (of currencies, temperature and length), modem, infrared connection, full qwerty keyboard, connection with Edge (G 2.5) – still excites me every time I use it. This, together with the bigger included memory chip, makes it a better phone than the Blackberry and smartphones of I-Mate and Motorolla.
This is the ideal instrument for the businessperson on the go. Previously I had to carry a cell phone and my Palm Zire. Now I only have to carry one instrument.
I also like the fact that it does not have a camera and all the other silly gadgets (strange ringing tones etc.) This classic, conservative style goes well with my style as businessperson.
My only critique: the Symbian OS does not synchronize as well with Outlook as the Palm OS. For example, it does not update changes I made to Contacts in Outlook on the handset. To overcome this problem, I on occasion delete all contacts and calendar entries on the phone and then synchronizes it again. I suppose the Microsoft Pocket Phone edition offered by Motorolla and I-Mate smartphone synchronises perfectly with Outlook, but it is nice to not always support Microsoft (and indirectly, the USA).
It is indeed the best phone in the market!!! If only it had vibration it would be perfect. I missed certain calls due to lack of this function. But overall best phone!! i dun understand how people rate 6 for the mass functions and the performance of the phone -_-
9300 is a very nice phone cuz you dont need the camera in 9500.the only problem that it hangs from time to time but not frequent i think its the best phone ever made.
In my opinion take the 9300. The nokia 9500 camera sucks anyway and for your information the 9500 do not have vibrator as well. Ive used both and the 9300 looks and feels better. The 9300 is hands down one of the best pda-phone combination. Tied only with the o2 xda mini. Just my opinion. And also ive used it for 3 months, 0 hang!!!! haha
Actually i wanted to by new phone 9300 or 9500, but i don't know which one should i take.. coz both of it have thier owh advantage and this advantage..
Like 9300.. look definitely handsome.. but dun have buit-in camera and WIFI.. and no Vibrator.. oke i can sacrifies for camera coz i have digicam.. and vibrator coz it's just like notebooks cannot expose to vibration..
But if i choose 9500..include all function but i don't like the look.. the front face and alsi the key board.. and it looks like a little bit brick..
urgh plase.or i just take 6630.. but i'mma business people... till now i cant decide.. coz the price not much differ in Malaysia..
i wanna ask one question.. about the excel, i can just download it from phone - pc or vice versa.. is it true? what about the presentation? how can i conect my 9300/9500 phonet to the projector?? any one can give me explaination...
Nothing to shout about. It hangs, the PDA function is unbelievable SLOW and there is no vibration alert. Unlike a pocket pc PDA phone, this is the most unintuitive phone I have ever used. I had it for two weeks and I plan to sell it ASAP!
I'll try my luck with an O2 or Blackberry. The Nokia 9300 just doesn't make the cut.
I bought an older 9 series Nokia, after a little less than a year the screen was not readable. Is this normal, has anyone else had this problem, if so there is no way I will buy another Nokia with flip screen, the cable is simpyl not strong!
The phone is outstanding but, I don't know how to use it. The features are unbelievable, and the phone is great for me. I love it.
As most people say that the disadvantage of 9300 is that there is no camera. But have anybody tried using the nokia fun camera pt-3 and transfer the image to the phone? Is it possible?? Because i found that nokia 9300 has pop port and the pt-3 supports all phones with pop port. No website ever mentions they are compatible though...
Has anybody tried it? Does it work? The quality of the pt-3 is better than in the nokia 9500 in my opinion.
Vibration. WHAT? have you seen a laptop or a pda that has vibration. If you put vibration it will the damgae the sentitive chips inside. Please folks
You will never know when is the best time to buy a phone. It is a rapid changing market to ensure that the mobile phone companies keep lauching new models to secure their market shares and profitable. You hv to pay more for a new released phone so that you get to show-off your set b4 the new version is launched. If you buy 1-2 months after lauching, ya, you pay less but enjoy shorter show-off time. So, tell me when is the best time to buy? It took Nokia more than 2 years before they launch 9500 the successor of 9210i. Is this the best time to buy a 9 series? What if they lauch a new model of 9 series next week? You figure out, I really hv no idea, not at all...........continued.....
does anyone have any idea when there will be a successor of this phone or the 9500 coming out nokia launched N-series which r jus like communicators but lack the keyboard im waiting for a new version of 9500,9300 and p910 c'mon SE and Nokia its about time!!!
I reallllly hate nokia for not putting vibration on such a perfect phone !!!
I have had my 9300 for over a month now and today I can definitely that there's no turning back to a any of the smaller series in the nokia range. I've never been a fan of the 9 series before due to size but the new 9300 not exactly small but then again it's not exactly a brick either! Okay, so it doesn't have a camera, wi-fi or the best screen possible but what does do in it's minute package is incredible. Here's a solution to your missing features of this phone, get another for example the new nokia 8800 is due for release soon.
i love your products nomatter how is it, i have seen many phones but there is different between nokia and other phones.
but i dont have phone
I never beleive until i saw it, this is just tooo much... Kudos to the Nokia Team
