Nokia 6301 (T-Mobile)

 

T-Mobile's HotSpot @Home is a unique and convenient service that allows T-Mobile customers to ditch their landline service completely. The premise is so simple that we're surprised more carriers haven't adopted it. With just a Wi-Fi-enabled phone you...

The Nokia 6301 has a simple, easy-to-use design with a brilliant display and well-designed navigation controls. Its functional feature set includes Wi-Fi for VoIP calling, and its call quality is top-notch

The 6301's microSD card and headset jack are in inconvenient places. It has poor photo quality as well

The 6301 is a great choice for a T-Mobile HotSpot @Home cell phone. Just don't count on its camera.

The flagship feature of the 6301 is HotSpot @Home (H@H), T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling system. H@H lets you use any Wi-Fi router as a cellular base station, making unlimited calls over Wi-Fi for $10 a month possible. The service works with any router, but...

Sharp design. Great Wi-Fi call quality. Syncs well with PCs

Quiet speakerphone. Relatively short battery life. Truly awful Web browsing

The Nokia 6301 is your best bet for a voice phone on T-Mobile's HotSpot @Home Wi-Fi calling system. We only wish the Web experience were better.

The Nokia 6301 might not be the best-looking candy bar-style cell phone to hit the market, but it's got a ton of features that are bound to impress. In addition to a camera, a music player, and Bluetooth support, it's also a Wi-Fi-enabled cell phone....

Nokia 6301 Cell Phone

 

As more than one phone manufacturer has discovered, it's never easy following up on a design classic. Even the elegant and well-featured 6301's maker, Nokia, has fallen afoul of this challenge before, but in this case there is little cause for concern....

A selection of attractive extras are included in the box. One of the first things you'll notice, thanks to its size, is the charging dock, which is designed along the lines of a PDA or MP3 player cradle and reinforces the feeling the 6301 gives of...

Nokia 6301 (T-Mobile)

 

Voice clarity on this phone is very good and I normally get decent reception. I need to put a disclaimer that like candy bar phones (not flips). I don't have big hands and yet this phone is a bit hard to hold. Over time it becomes too slippery, perhaps...

I can't believe Nokia let this go out the front door. The software is quite simply...garbage. The Bluetooth disconnects when i adjust the volume from the headset requiring a re-start of the phone, the Wi-Fi calling NEVER worked right, the phone locks...
