for all 7280 users;
how's the software,uploading, etc..
Easy or hard to upload pics, ringtones, etc...? Any phone freeze as in Sony Ericsson phones?
its a good buy if u gonna use is as a secondary mobile phone. The texting is not as impossible as some of you said, it has T9 dictionary anyway. V3 is not that great though, what can u do with 5mb? when 7280 offers 50mb?
bomb???! Geezus... I thought it's just an innocent mars bar lookalike phone lol =P
GUYS..DO NOT BUY IT.
Had a chance to have some hands on practice on this magic stick. But believe me. Its really difficult to use it. Good for ppl who do not dial too many numbers and do not write too many sms.
Writting an sms takes long time. Just to write " HELLO" you have to scroll all the alphabets starting from A to select H and then till O to select O.
Only looks good on your desk.
Good tool to turn a girl on ;)
this is the best phone a girl could want but not a boy. a boy shloud have somthing like a 6630 or a 6670
I have one of these, got it mid January 2005. Cost me £35 on contact with o2 (£30 per month with 200 free mins and 50 free txts) I really like it, although some of my friends have said it looks more like a mp3 player. It's definatly a womans phone, guys larger hands would probably find it difficult to use the dial to text etc. To use this phone for text messages takes some getting used to but after having the phone for a few weeks I'm having no difficulty texting quite quickly. The screen that changes to a mirror is great for doing makeup (said it was a girls phone didn't I) My boyfriend wouldn't be seen dead with this phone but I love it and would reccommend it
Another point to add... Maybe people like you (ShagTelecomNZ) have clumsy fingers or disfigured fingers who CAN'T text! OMG LMFAO!!!
If texters are lamers... what are chatters then? What's the internet these days? Just surfing for info? Tell me who doesn't has ICQ or Messenger these days? I think the person who said texters are lamers should be the one that needs to grow up!
Good to see someone agrees with me. I don't like texting, I'd prefer to talk to someone on the phone and catch up with them. Saying 'LOL' in a text is the lamest thing I have ever seen in my life, I'd rather hear someone laugh than to see an abreviation of laughter... I can see texters at parties 5 years down the track saying "OMG LOL!!" at peoples jokes.
you cant even compare this to the v3. nokia hav done it again made a another shit fone to try to compete with motorola and hav lost yet again the 2 fones r about the same price but the moto has 256k screen a bigger screen and not that thing that they call a key pad. dont pay 1000$ 4 this pay a 10004 for the v3
I Got the 7280 yesterday after previously owning a Nokia 8910i as with my last purchase i got this phone for the styling more than anything, the 7280 without java makes this phone very simple and operationally basic, which is the whole point this phone isnt aimed at those who want to send dozens of text per day and certainly not aimed at those who want any kind of PDA functionality it simply doesnt have that, but if your like me and have a phone book full of every number you ever call then its great select the name and call, better yet use voice dial which works great, the construction is pretty good in my opinion but its plastic so time will tell.. i'm used to a titanium phone so i will just get used to the difference in construction, visually its great a real statement does show fingerprints with the glossy surface though. all in all i'm impressed so far...
the screen iz small n the keypad iz weird!!!! lots of memory n bluetoothe enable
Though the Nokia carkit 610 is compatible, it's impossible to pair the 7280 with it, because the time you get to fill in the 16-digit pincode on your 7280 is just 15 seconds. After trying to beat the time about 10 times i gave up....
i bought this fone today its fab easy to use .. mabye you people that cannot understand the finer things in life. should stick to 3410/3100/3200 the world would be a boaring place if we all stick to the normal stero type fone well done nokia ... not only a bril design but excellent quality thankyou
