I would like your views on which is the winner when it comes to:
My requirements are mainly Calendar (synch with outlook), Contacts (synch with outlook), Outlook Notes, WiFi, voice dialling thru bluetooth headset, last and least - compactness (within reason).
Would apprecite your views or even recommendations on other phones to consider.
Have had the phone (9300i) for about two weeks... I'M SO HAPPY!!!!
I've had iPAQ for years, and according to my needs, nothing has until now offered me what the Communicator has.
Everybody has different needs. Some like Treo, some like Windows and some like Symbian.
I insist, phocusing on my specific needs, and as an ex-ipaq user, Nokia's 9300i is the best phone i've had up to now.
By the way, don't some of you know how to have a "DIALOGUE"????? I mean, what is the need of being destructive towards someone's opinion if it different than ours...
Please, grow up (specially you SAM...).
Cheers form Spain.
You bet I am not looking at the 9300i SE P910 is far better.
Do you work for Nokia....sounds like it though...
Lets face it no one like been told that they have a bad product .... your reactions are only human.
Cheers and have a good life
To anyone that needs expert advice on any symbian os phone made by Sony-Ericsson and NOKIA check website www.allaboutsymbian.com
Those guys are THE experts!
They continue where the manual stops ;-)
The weird "alternatives" you suggest are useless and unappreciated. Pc's without phone, scanners, Ericson this or Samsung that, Palm Treo's better, etc.
It's clear the phone you've got now isn't first rate since there's been no mention of it. Mocking people for what they've bought is unconstructive.
This column is for those shopping for this type of phone,
and owners that can share their learnt experiences and opinions. You haven't any useful information concerning its operation and you're not shopping for this kind of phone. I'm calling your bluff.
I'm boycotting your comments from now on. Have a nice life!
All those in favor say "aye"..
If you can get used to this phone then you might as well get used to anything. It hangs, battery needs to be removed and replaced again and again. the t9 isnt there (nokia claims its there. i could not find it) and its sooooooo slow!!!!! one piece of advice. if you want a simple phone stick to the nokia 6230i. If you want a smartphone, dont bother anywhere but sony ericsson.
I quote my learned friend Bills2North
"Handsigned faxes are legal and "binding" in "some" real-estate transactions "while overseas" "when proof of signiture´s available on mainland"
Gees how many of us will come across such a situation.....while most of us will need a stylus...which the 9300 nor the 9500 does not have...for hevens sake it does not have a vibrator option....
Also my friend have you ever heard of a scanner....wonderful gadget you see...cell phone cameras are doubling up as scanners too
Also soon we will have smart phones which are as powerful as current computers
Is very nice and and complete phone,is one of the best phones i have used for a very long time i love the phone!!!!!!!!
Please someone help me know the exact differences between 9300 & 9300i as I don't know the difference between them and I think the only one avilable here is 9300.
Also tell me if games can be freely downloaded or not.
answer me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Bluetooth digital pen is ok for drawing / writing freehand. The keypad "tapper" card is alright, too.
The pen works with every Symbian os (40, 60, 80..).. so far; N-Gage, 6230 and 9300i- our whole family ;-)
But.. in the end the keyboard on the silver brick´s best.
NOKIA PASS KEY QUICK FINDER; for Bluetooth earphones look inside battery cover. For pen, etc. Generally the last 4 digits of serial no. is same as code.
When Ultra pc gets a little smaller and includes a PHONE "hello?" I can consider it in 2-3 years. I bought the brick as a phone-pda that fits in my pocket NOW, period. It´s a good investment.
9300i´s (and 9500..) speed´s 150 MHz. Not the fastest that´s for sure, but the Symbian 80 series os (like old Psion..) is steady and battery life ok.
Wi-Fi is sweet but eats power in 4-5 hrs.
What kind & speed of processor is used inside this phone?
Is it possible to watch full lenght movies on this device?
What is the best resolution I can use for the movies?
Thanks in advance
its goods is really good as well as the performance is also good
Just bought the 9300i a month back its the best phone in the whole world its my partner for life this one's for you Hash
Not expecting anyone to take the origamy in their pocket ... just making a point that a smart phone without a stylus is way behind in technology....the 9300 does not have a stylus and hence has low ratings according to GSM arena
I've had EVERY single communicator (9000,9110,9210,9300,9500) and I wouldnt trade any of them for any other phone. I've also owned the Sony Ericsson P910i because I was tired of not having GPRS on my 9210i. I found it great until Nokia released the new communicators. I quickly switched to the Nokia 9300 (without the wifi) and loved it. Within six months, my brother bought the 9500 with wifi and camera and I bought the same version.
I love the clamshell design. Sure its a bit bulky, but so are the SE P910.
I dont like sending emails with a stylus. But the keyboard on the P910 helped a little (not much) but on the communicator series its awesome.
I bought my first Nokia 9000i back in 1997 for about 1,150$ and I dont regret it. I still have it here to. (Almost in new condition) I even use it off and on to keep the battery functioning. (which I do on all my phones.)
Bottom line, NOTHING beats a communicator. But different strokes for different folks =)
Hey Bills2 North,
Trust you saw the Samsung i830 much better than the 9300.... also on your point of stylus check out Microsoft and Samsungs Origamy Ultra Portable PC... the world is moving towards stylus based inputs where as Nokia is still stuck in another century.
most human beings dont sign a fax...
all the best with trying the 9300 with Nokias digital pen...it is like going into the dark ages ... while everyone is trying to converge everything into one device to make us humans more productive ... nokia still has it roots in its gumboots
Sam, what are all the shortcut `hot keys´ for? Check Nokia. General keyboard shortcuts are same as Win, and Doc. app too ('Chr' plus 'nav-up' = Page up etc..) which make it easy to remember. Even the clock has shortcuts!
But you´ve got a point. In the long run a pen isn´t a bad idea, especially for signing faxes or letters.
However, a full size `real´ pen is 10x better than a dinky stylus. I´ll check the Digital pen (NOKIA SU-1b?) on my 9300i and *laptop (with bluetooth). If I like it I´ll have the best of both worlds.
*laptop justifies purchase, too ;-)
Had one of these for a few weeks now.
Got the Blackberry software working and am very happy with that.
Don't need the vibrating ring, don't need a camera (I have a DSLR in the car with me at all times), don't need a complicated setup - so this suits me 100%.
So far very impressed. All the features that I need with a nice screen, all very easy to get to and intuative.
