One of T-Mobile's first 3G-enabled handsets, the classic clamshell Nokia 6263 phone makes it easy to snap photos and videos on the go with the 1.3-megapixel camera and quickly upload them to your T-Mobile photo album. It's also great as a cellular audio player, with compatibility for a wide range of formats and easy-to-access playback controls on the hood of the clamshell. Other features include dual color displays, an FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity for communication headsets and stereo music streaming, speakerphone, and MicroSD memory expansion.
This phone operates on GSM 850/900/1800/1900 networks for global voice roaming. It's also one of T-Mobile's first handsets to use its new 3G UMTS/WCDMA network (1700/2100 MHz), allowing you to download ringtones and games, send photos and videos to online albums, access high-speed color Internet sites, and email quickly while on the go. Where UMTS isn't available, the handset will automatically connect to T-Mobile's EDGE network.
This phone also includes compatibility with Myfaves, which allows you to call up to five of your most common contacts--on any network, even landlines--without using any of your minutes.
Download cool new games, HiFi Ringers (real songs by today's hottest artists), MegaTones (instrumental versions of songs), and wallpapers quickly, as well as stay connected via the Web, instant messaging, and email. And share pictures and video easily with T-Mobile's My Album. You can add picture, voice, and video messages from your T-Mobile camera or video phone using the My Album link built into the send menu or by using a simple short code. You can also upload pictures, video, or sound from a home computer.
The brightly colorful interior 2.2-inch TFT display has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and offers support for 16 million colors, while the exterior display has a 128 x 160-pixel resolution and 256K colors, and it enables quick viewing of caller ID, time, battery life, and more. The durable, small and handy folding design keeps the screen and keys protected. On the front of the clamshell you'll find the camera lens as well as playback controls (play/pause, reverse, forward) for the digital audio player.
This phone provides Bluetooth version 2.0 wireless connectivity and comes fully packed with a variety of helpful profiles, including communication headset, handsfree car kits, object push, file transfer, audio/video remote control, and file transfer protocol. With the A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones. You can connect your laptop (either via Bluetooth or wired USB) and enjoy dial-up networking--surf the Internet, send email, and access files from a server. Send contacts, calendar events, and pictures/videos/voice memos wirelessly.
The integrated music player can play music in MP3, AMP, AAC, eAAC+ and WMA music formats, as well as DRM-protected Windows Media music files purchased from most online music stores on the Internet. Many widely used music software packages can be used to manage and synchronize tracks between the Nokia 6263 and a PC. It also features a built in FM radio that enables you to tune into your favorite radio stations. The media player provides full-screen video playback on the phone to view downloaded, streamed, or recorded video clips in larger size. Supported formats include .3gp and .mp4 file formats, MPEG-4 video, and H.263 video. Other features include selectable skins for changing the look and feel of the music player, support for playlists, and album graphic display.
In addition to SMS text and MMS multimedia messaging, this phone incorporates Nokia Xpress audio messaging, which allows you to personalize messages in a spontaneous and creative way. By using a specially designed menu, an audio message can be recorded and sent with only a few clicks of a button. Xpress audio messages can be sent to all MMS-enabled GSM handsets, and can also be shared with multiple recipients.
