Nokia 5300 or Samsung T629???

Hi, I'm new to this forum so please bare with me. I'm overdue to upgrade my current phone and I have a choice between the Samsung t629 which I can get for free or the Nokia 5300 which I'd have to pay $29.99 for with my upgrade. What do you guys think is the better deal? Would it be worth paying for the Nokia or should I get the free phone? I really like this phone with all the accesories it comes with and mp3 player. The samsung phone also has an mp3 player but doesnt sound like it's as good a quality. Anyway, your opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Memory Card//One Music file 2.5 gigs-can't delete

I have a Kingston 2 Gig Micro Sd card. I have a file on it, a music file, which is apparently 2.5 gigs big. I open it, and there are six folders in there, all of which I can't delete, and I believe is confusing the music player, which is not playing the music in the Memory Card as of Friday. Please help!

Broken Screen

I have a 5300 with a broken screen and I'm getting a 5310 in a few days the problem is that I have some pics in the collection folder and I was wondering how to get them out using the PC suite. If anyone could tell me the menu options on that screen it would be a big help.

reinstall IM

So here is a strange problem, I lost my instant messenger, the icon no longer appears on the menu. I honestly have no idea how it happened, I'm assuming that some magical force took it out when the phone dropped that one time. Maybe it was faries or something, I have no idea. All I want to know is how to get it back in. I know that it can be done by hooking up the 5300 to my PC but I don't know what software to get and where to find the instant messenger for reinstallaion. Any help?

Does this phone support 4GB micro SD

I'm looking for a new phone. I heard this has great music playing capabilities which is very important to me, but I just don't think I'd be satisfied with 2GB.

Also how fast does it access info on the card? My Sony Ericsson seems very slow.

Anyone know how many texts this holds?

I have the Samsung Blast and I hate the keyboard and nowhere can I find how to do a quick emoticon.

I'm thinking of taking it back for the Nokia 5300. Anyone know how many texts this holds in the phone (not sim).

Video player not good on this phone then?

It looks like a lot of you like this phone but have complaints about the video player. Is the video player really that bad on this phone? I don't expect it to look as good as it does on my computer but I want to get a phone that I won't have trouble playing videos on and one that the video quality isn't really poor. Sounds to me like that is a major issue with this phone. Makes me even more confused on which phone to choose, this one or the Samsung T629. Anyway, any replies to this and my other topic would be appreciated! Thanks!

Video player is nearly worthless

What a waste of a large TFT display.

I thought many of the videos I was downloading were bad because the picture and sound don't play at the same speed. But they play fine on a Sonyericsson w200a.

SMS "message storage memory not ready" ...


I connected my 5300 to my PC via USB cable, then chose "data storage device" mode. After I disconnected, I can't access any Message related functions anymore. It always displays an error "Message storage memory not ready". I tried restarting, restoring factory defaults, taking out the battery/SIM but nothing helped.

Any help will be appreciated,

5300 pros and cons

I'm a big Nokia fan and have now had this phone for a month... in case anyone's thinking about getting the phone i DO recommend it but just thought i'd add my .02 about the whole 5300 experience.

Love the controls and functionality - the symbian OS is highly customizable (is that a word?) so you can program your own quick key shortcuts. screen color is gorgeous and the nokia theme looks good. turn off the annoying slide animation and myFaves animation and the phone looks even better.

The music player works great and it's nice to have 1-touch access to the music player and playlists. Sound over headphones is great - even the little dinky loudspeaker isn't that bad all things considered. Sound quality is only hampered by TMobile's ne...
