If you like the idea of a phone which has a high enough spec that youre not laughed out of the conference room, but that isnt needlessly flashy or hopelessly fashionable, then the Nokia 6300 is for you. Smart stainless steel panels hide Nokias user-friendly S40 interface, a 2 megapixel camera and a very capable music player, making the 6300 the choice of the sophisticated mobile connoisseur.

Why You Should Buy The 6300
Simple but stylish stainless steel body, with a great screen and tactile, sensibly sized keys.
A fine music player with the option to use your own headphones or the rather unfittingly loud external speaker!
The 2 megapixel camera is great for taking fun snaps and video.
Expandable memory with a MicroSD card up to 2GB in size.
Mobile Elegance
Few will fail to be entranced by the look of the Nokia 6300; it really is a fabulous looking handset. The screen is 2.2 and displays a resolution of 240x320 and 16.7 million colours making it glorious to look at and the keypad is standard 12-key in a 3x4 layout, with each key given just the right amount of real estate to cater for any finger size.

For once, Nokia have made a slim and light phone, realising not everyone wants a 130 gram weight in their pocket all day. The 6300 weighs just 91 grams, not bad considering its stainless steel panels, and measures an almost perfect 106x43x11.7mm. It fits in your palm comfortably and feels the right side of high quality, and looks the part too. All these points sound so basic dont they? However its amazing how many times manufacturers get them wrong!

Under the Skin
Just because it doesnt make the tea, it doesnt mean Nokia have skimped on the features. The camera may be a basic affair, but the pictures taken in daylight outside are of good quality and the video looks great too. The 6300 may not have dedicated music buttons, but dont think the player is an after thought as it sounds excellent and the inclusion of a 2.5mm jack plug makes adding your own headphones simple.

The 6300s business aspirations are confirmed with the absence of any other fluff, theres just a calculator (with full scientific mode for a change), voice memo and the normal organiser and calendar features. Of course Bluetooth is present, as is a slot for adding a MicroSD card to increase the phones memory.

Summary of the Nokia 6300
The Nokia 6300 is a bit like the Ford Mondeo or mobile phones, its straightforward, reliable and youll see them everywhere, but at the same time its stylish and its full of exciting features. The good thing is the 6300 doesnt need anything to improve it, it makes and receives calls with the highest quality sound, has every feature you really need, plus it looks, feels and performs like a far higher priced model. Is there a better recommendation?

I had one of these about 2 years ago and they are great. A really really good size and shape. If I didnt have an iPhone I'd get one one of these again. I paid 90ukp for mine back then so I would have expected them to be cheaper by now but still worth it at the price.

Does anyone know if they are unlocked?
#6
I was looking the other day, and they did the 6303 (updated version) for £10 more, though it is on Orange. However, it seems unlocking this phone is a nightmare, so I went elsewhere for the O2.

Top phone was using this for 4 years since last week - now I got a Nokia 5530.

But this is an excellent phone, really simple and nice and easy.

Hi, don't know about this phone, but previously when I bought a pay as you go phone from Dial-a-phone on Vodafone it was unlocked, so I imagine these would be the same.

Agree with the previous post, generally tend to be unlocked.

I dont use the phone much just very brief calls and texts, but whenever I have been on it for longer than 10 mins, it has become quite hot, dont know if that is to do with the metal casing and back plate!

Trade into Cex for £48! [if its unlocked!]
#11

Genio phones are unlocked in local markets foronly £5.... Unless they say that it has got the new software version......!!!! (Then they tend to charge £10 the max).
I got one of these phones unlocked last week and it costed me 10 quids.

As I said earlier..that is the 6303..which is the newer version, so worth more. I consider it a better deal than the 6300 for £10 less. Dialaphone are likely to send a locked phone though with orange branding.

I can confirm that this phone is Locked to vodafone
#20
Yes, they are locked and apparently can't be done at the local phone shop, so i've gone through vodafone who do it for free if you're on contract with them. But had problem adding foreign languages, as this is a newer version 57.20. Anyone know anything about adding foreign languages and who can do it?
