Curiously, while T-Mobile is the only carrier not running on a 3G network and still not providing a music downloading service, it nonetheless is producing phones capable of both.
Such is the case with the Nokia 6263, a quad-band, 3G capable flip that features a 2.2 inch LCD screen (240x320), mini USB port for easy syncing, Bluetooth 2.0 support, dedicated MP3 controls and an overall decent feature set.
The MP3 player accepts WMA, eAAC+ and MP3, and you can transfer music via Bluetooth, USB cable or memory card. Unfortunately, T-Mobile disabled the phones ability to use MP3s as ring tones. Darn it!
The 6263 also boasts an FM radio and allows for 20 station presets.
The Nokia 6263 trades shiny for matte black, and is rated at 3.3 hours of talk time and 270 hours of standby time. Users can customize the phone with a variety of themes, wallpapers and animations and can assign pictures to contacts. Each contact slot allows for a generous amount of information.
Overall, the Nokia 6263 is a quality phone with reportedly good quality sound (both voice and music), and while the interface is limited, what it does do it does well.
