lots uf users are complaining abaut the poor build quality of some very new phones and i did some research abaut it and i found out something in common they are MADE IN HUNGARY or MADE IN ROMANIA. If you want a good phone buy one thats MADE IN FINLAND because you cant buy one thats made in GERMANY anymore because nokia wants lower production costs and that results in poor build quality
longboy, 21 Nov 2009i would buy one of those if the battery last 10 days or more.Then go for Samsung 1110
a very basic and simple design. majority affordable.
naturally for making and receive calls no bells n whistles stuff.
a good for many folks.

Nokia 1280 is going to break all the selling records of NOKIA 3310 and NOKIA 1100 and It will sell like hot cake. Thanks God after a long time NOKIA has come up with great phone which will suit trillions of pocket and rich with lots of features
Really cool phone, glad nokia put a FM transmitter in it. Only for $30, battery life is excellent too! Great backup phone or good for taking in rough countries.
great phone for someone who really needs phone but nothing else
and i am sure it would last for 10 years
I have lost 9 phones and i have finally decided to buy a Nokia 1280 phone they better steal this one quick i will feel no pain for sure.cool phone

I think this may be the last monochrome-display phone from Nokia. They've perfected these phones to such a high degree, it was surprising Nokia 1202/1203 had such reliability issues. Hopefully they will be solved in the 1280.
yes it does have txt message because it supports T9 and T9 is a text message technology
Thank you Nokia for reviewing Long Lasting battery baccup moblle
Cheap phone made for people who cannot buy a more expensive phone. The production costs for Nokia are probably a dollar or two but they will sell this for a profit smashing $20.
a job well done. i will be the first to buy in Fiji. simple and and easy to use for frequent users.
Joshua, 14 Nov 2009Again, you don't understand the purpose of this phone, and just keep bashing the looks of it.
... moreSo, let me say using examples:
Try using the N900 on a trip to Africa. Stolen or just damaged in the desert, in the rain, in the hot weather, humid weather. Try that on the Amazon. Or give it to Old McDonald on his Kansas farm... I bet he will drop it on the dirt on the middle of the field making it unusable.
OK, that's it.

It's a rugged phone of sorts. That's why it looks different. That's why it looks "fat" and "ugly" for some. It's supposed to stand dust and scratches much better. And with the build materials they used, they made a 20 euro phone.
And it's supposed to be shared by different people (think farm employees), with different phonebooks. That makes it a 5 euro phone to some small businesses.
I'm sorry if I sound too harsh saying this, but you have no idea of what you're talking about neither you know the purpose and build philosophy behind it.
Good thing we have plenty of cell phone choices. Samsung, like you said. And I'm buying the N900. We all win! No need to bash this one. :)
So there you have it. That's the reason. ;)
