I am Ashish Kotnala and I own a Nokia 6300 handset. My issue is that I had this phone for only 2 months and the battery drains after 1 day only. I only listen to music for 15-20 minutes on it, send 4-5...

This isn't really a solution but Nokia are not renowned for having the best batteries. My 6300 is also after 2-3 days in need of a charge, mainly because it's searching for a Net Work. Take the thing back and change it after 2 months something is wrong. Best regards

I work in a remote area and phone is contstantly "searching for service". There is nothing in the settings to fix this. How do I stop the phone from doing this. It kills my battery every day!!

Hi, If you are trying to use a SIM card in your phone and getting a message like "Enter Subsidy Code", "Incorrect SIM Card", "SIM not provisioned", "Searching for Service" or similar messages, then you need an unlock code for your mobile phone. You can get LG Venus VX8800 Unlock Code from the service provider, they will verify the account holder information and if your account is in good standing, they will send you the code in approx 2 weeks. I suggest, you may visit LG Unlock Code site, they will provide an accurate code fast with easy to follow instructions on how to unlock your phone. Once your phone is unlock, it will work with any network worldwide without sticking to one network.
Hope this is helpful.
