BTW, how much did you get for 6300? How old was it?

So abt 30 e-mails a day at an average, true both accept blackberry services when i say blackberry bevices i mean The Blackberry curve pearl et al since the OS has built in firewalls etc some companies have a policy where they will only fwd e-mails if you have a bb device so depends what your company policy is ask the it guys.

Initial Impressions are like wow. Feels way faster than my E61i. Will observe the phone over the next few days and am even considering swapping my E61i for this phone.

Here is the link to the phone pic & specs.

Hi,

It was approx 7-8 months old and in very good condition. Was purchased with B&W and I had the original box and accessories unused which helped get a good price.

URGENT

Guys a suggestion please, as mentioned in my posts earlier my e50 has conked off and I need a replacement urgently.I wanted to repair it but it the nokia guys dont have the part available and have given me a timeframe of 2 weeks .

I need to buy a phone today as i am using my wifey's phone (my old v3i) and due to some issues cant affort to spend even 10k this month. I checked out some of the older nokia models n70 and 72 and they are available for 8-9k. Are they worth buying ? I dont really use too many features just basic calling and smsing (not too much) n maybe a lil bit of standard games n music.

All I want is a good sturdy phone with good battery life and clear sound.

Please suggest . Looking forward to your help.

What unlocking method have you used? If you use Zibri or Liberty+ etc the Installer package gets automatically installed (on Liberty you have an option to to opt for it)

Please read up ModMyiFone.com | iPhone forums, iPhone hacks, iPhone unlock and iPhone - Hackint0sh and get educated!!

if you are gonna buy n70 or n72 around 8-9k, it is better to spend 1.5k more and get E51. Or else Nokia 6300 for 7-8k.

I agree. N70/72 are really outdated and not worth their price. Either put in 1-2k extra and get E51. Or spend 1-2K less and get E50/6300

Thanks guys but I am not particularly fond of the 6300 (looks girlish imho) and after the e50 fiasco am totally not going to go in for that .I think e51 sounds like the next one to go in for then.
How about sony phones ? Any ericsson models which i might get under 10k?

Hey Sam,
Heres a good phone for under 10K, plus satisfies your want for music and looks great.

P.S. Looks way better in reality.
