This is what I got from Nokia's so called support people: (funny that
they ask that you don't send any emails with attachements, but their
emails come as a email with no text, but 1 MIME encoded UTF-8
attachement containing the response).
Note that the message below is despite Nokia's worldwide sites claiming
the 6300 has those features, despite the technical support person at the
north american Nokia telephone support having a 6300 with those features
Thsi would be considered false advertising by many.
