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