kk, 01 Dec 2010it is not working properly.sometimes it switch off and switch on 4 to 5 times itself. network ... moreYeah, you're right. This is not a good handset from nokia. Though I was planning to buy it. Rather stick with my old SE W200i.
Had this phone for nearly a week and so far I've been very satisfied with its performance. Software is version 05.80 and currently no problems to report.
Compared to my other Nokia basic phone, the 1616, this is definitely much better to use. The keypad is a joy to press compared to the 1616. Tactile response is excellent and the keys are spread out just right.
LCD is legible even under direct sunlight. And the white backlight is comfortable to view at night. Better IMO than the earlier yellow light Nokia used for their monochrome phones. Fonts are a throwback to the 5110 and 3210 era so text is legible and very easy to read.
Response time is also excellent with no lag or delays noted. Those infuriated by delays in texting (example: you're typing one word ahead of you're phone's display) will be pleased by the 1280's performance. This is no laggard like those old Sony Ericssons, you can text as fast as you can with no delay whatsoever.
The FM radio is quite adequate with excellent sound both using headphones and with the loud speaker. Don't expect thumping bass output though. Think: 70s transistor radio. I did notice though that using the FM radio does tend to drain the battery faster than I expected.
If you need a colored LCD phone with bluetooth, GPS, a memory card and a microwave oven, then look elsewhere. Need a basic phone? Then look no further.
it is not working properly.sometimes it switch off and switch on 4 to 5 times itself. network coverage problems. speaker problems.not at all good to buy it

Vinh Nguyen, 11 Oct 2010Anyone know how to increase the volume .? Yes, during call press left or right on the middle button
one of the best phone according to price, it has good message, phonebook storage capacity
I'm sorry I went to Nokia Care in Mall of Asia but they had trouble updating the software. They say the rig is not working properly.
I'm planning to have mine updated in another branch. I already have a copy of the 5.80 firmware just in case they don't have a copy.
I'm really hoping that they would change the way it returns to the main screen after sending an SMS. it's a good phone with better features than my 1202 but I stuck with 1202 because of my gripe with the sms sending. I hope 5.80 changed all of this.
i m using this nokia 1280 before 2 months ago,its not a good phone,i have network coverage problem,also hearing speaker problem.bec there is no privicy while talking..soo plz donot buy it..
my gray n1280 is one and a half mos old. . .i just used it mainly as back up for texting n calling, its flashlight, fm n speaking clock is very functional...that is what n1280 is meant to be used...in a very simple way of using a mobile phone...no need to upgrade, complain and ask for more in an amount like this. just cover the back speaker w ur point finger when making/receiving a call. 3 members of my family got this phone as back ups for their phones. and finally i seldom charge its battery'
