ensure that the 3GP file has the correct audio encoding. From K300's White Paper (put in white paper + k300 in search field at www.sonyericsson.com):
"The Media player supports download and playback of H.263 formats for viewing video clips in the phone. Files must be of types MP4 or 3GP, having audio encoded in AAC or AMR format. The phone encodes video in H.263 Profile 0 Level 10 format."
It holds around 150 messages overall, sent and recieved and it tells you when you have used 95% of them.

There is an easy way but you have to remember it yourself. The only time to have the alternative speaker on/off is during an actual call.
So, during the call:
a) Press in joystick,
b) press 4
Same thing to turn it off during call.
Lovely phone at a great price. My only qualm is that there is no dedicated speakerphone button. Is it possible to get firmware so as to have a dedicated speakerphone button.
Taimur and others regarding mp4-files...
MP4 is "the package" for MPEG4 video and AAC sound files. K300 only supports AAC (which is MP4-sound) and not MPEG4. The video of Taimur is coded in MPEG4 - that's why it doesn't work.
However it will work if you convert the MPEG4-file to 3gp. Then it will work.
A free converter can be found at Nokia (!!)
For this you register in the Nokia forum, and request for a serial number for installation.

Not only does k300 have J2ME (java) latest technology - it is also one of the best at it!
What is really surprising about Sony Ericsson K300 is the extreme speed, with which it manages the applications created in the mobile Java. When tested with jBenchmark 1.0 | 2.0 it performed the stunning result of 3773 | 175, which sends it among the first top ten java mobile phones. None of us really expected such an excellent performance from a device of the class given. What's more, this mobile's Java application is accompanied by the 3D technology Mascot Capsule Engine Micro3D Edition, which is meant to fasten the creating of tri-dimensional games and their playing process"

I have got this phone for a week and I am pretty happy with it!
It is very simple and well made. It has J2ME (java) latest technology which was very important for me. It has optional package like MMAPI, Video player, java 3D and Messaging (SMS) send/recieve API.
The display is 128x128 and the battery lasts for around 4 days which is a bit small time, but it is ok! I specifically wanted the smaller display than k500 in order to gain better battery life and 4 days is fair enough.
Good phone! (for the money :-))
it sounds to me as if you found a minor software bug... but does it have any real practical implications?
Hi Coolanoguy! As i told u tht i got this phone, it was working well ever since i got it.. but now a tiny problem is thr.. u said nd evrywher it is written tht it has got 12 MB memory... but when i opened file manager and clicked on memory status.. it displayed tht my sounds folder is of 9.7 MB (as some MP3 tones nd a song are thr) and my pictures folder is of 9.6 MB .. i was astonished.. as it can't hav thngs more than its memory.. i opened my pics folder.. and chcked all files tht how much their size is nd i found out tht it can't exceed than 2 MB.. so i'm worried tht how come it displays tht my pics folder contains files of 9.6 MB memory as 9.7MB is already taken by my sounds folder.. it displayed every else folder's memory rightly but not of my pics .. it said 9.6 MB memory and files number was also right but the memory..?.... plz help me... waiting.. thnx in advance..
