    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Well, I bought this to breathe some life into an old 6300 and once I got it to fit into the sim slot it worked perfectly...

    Cons:

    ...until I updated the firmware. D'oh! Big mistake. It stopped working. Obviously nokia noticed there was a way to defeat the bypass mechanism, and enabled it via the firmware.

    OtherThoughts:

    If I hadn't updated the firmware, it would have been fine. But the phone had stability issues so it really needed to be done. It doesn't work in the other phone I have, the 5230, but then again that phone is not on the compatibility list.

    Bottomline:

    Gutted. If this experience taught me anything, it is that this chip will only work on very old phones and as such is probably not so useful anymore.
