First released in 2007, the Nokia 6300 was one of the first Nokia phones to support MicroSD memory cards, making it a suitable phone for an MP3 player. If you are looking at purchasing a Nokia 6300 for yourself but have never used a Nokia phone before, there are a few tricks that you can use to make using your Nokia 6300 less of a pain and more of a pleasure.
Quick Profile Switching
Switching phone profiles can be very helpful if you are walking into a business meeting or a movie theater and you don't have a lot of time to scroll through menus to manually switch to a different phone profile. You can quickly access the Nokia 6300's different profiles by pressing the power button on the top of the phone. Hold this button for a couple of seconds to bring up your profiles menu. From there you can simply scroll down to the profile you want to activate and select it.
Did you know that there is a secret menu inside your Nokia phone that will give you every piece of information about your phone that you could ever want? Once you turn your cell phone on and let it power up normally, type the following on your number pad:
For those of you playing the home game, the numbers spell out "war0anty". Your phone will automatically take you to a secret menu that will list your phone's serial number, manufacturing date, purchase date, last repair date and the life timer of the phone (how long it's been since you've turned it off last).
Return to Factory Settings
Say it's time to sell your Nokia 6300 but you don't want anybody finding out your personal information, such as your friends' cell phone numbers or any "compromising" photos. You don't want to go through the hassle of deleting every single file on the phone, but what else are you to do?
Well, reset the phone, naturally.
You can reset your Nokia 6300 to the original factory settings by typing *#7780# into your number pad. Of course, you will be asked to confirm the decision to reset the phone. Should you confirm, your phone will be wiped of all personal data and returned to its original factory settings.
