whats the latest software version for this? Mine is V03.60. Sometimes the name disappears in the contacts when searching to send sms.
Bought it from karachi pakistan @ Rs.2100/= noki a 1202 and 1203 are much better in signal reception and in call quality. nokia 1280 call quality is low and other person can hear echoing noise. disappointed :-(and also u cant stop the voice leakeage bcoz inner loud speaker at back is raised from the body and if u place some plastic and tape on the hole the back cover will not fit properly it will loose from the right side. phone is slow then nokia 1202 and 1203. better buy 1202 or 1203 :(

The most basic function of a telephone is of course telephony, and Nokia has failed to provide this function as almost all of their cheap sets are coming with the voice leakage problem. Due to this problem, a person can't listen other person's voice in noisy conditions while in quieter conditions, the person sitting next to you can hear your conversation, hence no privacy at all.
I bought this Phone today in Pakistan for Rs 2200 (25 USD). Phone is very good in construction, Keypad is one of the best, Good battery. It looks like an old phone. It is bigger than Nokia 1202. The keys are a bit harder to press than Nokia 1202 or 1203. But Operating System is the same. We can plug normal 3.5mm headphones in it, Radio sounds great. But like other Nokia phones, 1202,1203,1661,1662,5030 and 1616, this Phone also have VOICE LEAKAGE problem. Infact, the sound from front come very less than the sound comming from the back side. Even at the maximum volume, it is difficult to hear in crowded areas. Nokia 1202 or 1203 is much better this regard. For me Nokia 1202, 1203 and 1280 are the same, best for texting.
But I am very happy with it. Going to keep it.
