High SAR and same speaker issue like other latest Nokia phones: 1202, 1611 and so one. I think that 1208/9 are still the best choice.
very nice phone having great batry time n messaging gives a pleasure whta a cool keypad
guys am using this phone from 15 days ... really this phone is serving my needs... 2 days battery back up... using sennheiser handsfree.. really rocking fm... messaging is chilling out... am really happy with nokia 1280
tab, 18 Aug 2010Hi, Could it be something fishy? I saw on this page: http://sar.nokia.com/sar/index.jsp dif... moreSorry! I'd like to make correction: This site does mention SAR values for N1280, but I was looking under country: United States (it's not there). I tried another county, and found it's there. As kindly mentioned by someone, N1280 has about 1.15 W/kg specs.
bought it yesterday..
it sucks.. hv lot of issues specially voice leakage.. u wont be able to hear anything from the front side while walking in rush places or driving with ur window open..
im gonna buy n1280 not only as a back-up phone but. .as a collection of nice performance n feature phone fr nokia. . .also got a n6233c n 6120c as a collection rather than back-up phones!
Could it be something fishy? I saw on this page: http://sar.nokia.com/sar/index.jsp different Nokia models are listed with their SAR values. N1616 IS there, but N1280 is not there. Also, you might want to check values for high end phones such as N90 - max value is 0.54 W/kg. I'm seeing lower end phones have higher SAR values, hence more radiation.
Hi, I am from India and I purchased the Nokia 1280 just two days back. The best thing I like about this phone is the shape and styling (minimalistic and beautiful). I really don't care about a camera/3G and other fancy features on a phone. It seems to do the talk and message part well and there is no problem with sound quality. I do have one concern however: the SAR statement for this phone specifies the energy output to 1.15 W/Kg, which is quite high compared to other Nokia phone models (the safety limit is supposed to be 2 W/Kg). Does anyone have an idea if the energy output from this phone is Ok for daily use?
I had great expectations for a basic phone with FM.
However the Nokia 1280 has left lot to be desired.
The sounds like the ring tones dont seem to be good.
The volume levels are also low, I guess.
The phone switches off on its own! For eg. I pressed the power off
button(not hold the button for few seconds). The phone does a reboot
of sorts. And sometimes this happens repeatedly.
This I have seen when changing the language of the phone as well.
Another problem is the received speech is not clear and loud enough.
I think I made a mistake of going for this phone.
I'm from the Philippines and I'm using this for almost just a week now. And I'm having no problem so far. I have another Nokia phone and a touchscreen phone w/c I haven't been using in a while. I wan'ed a phone where I can make calls and send sms comfortably and 1280 is just what I needed. :)

Im from manila philippines, just bought one unit of Nokia 1280. I had a problem encountered, message alert volume in settings is HIGH/MAXIMUM but when in actual or when you received a text message the alert/tone is not that HIGH and it seems like it is set to lower volume.
I go to the NOKIA Service Center to complain the issue, i leave the unit for software checking then after 24HRS they respond that it's the same problem after reformat or reprogram the phone so possible the hardware problem. Then a week after, they said that they replaced the main board of the unit. But when i pick up and test the unit, same problem. NO IMPROVEMENT, so they told me a possible OS/SOFTWARE issues and will escalate to head office of NOKIA so if they release a new SOFTWARE version they will fixed that issue.
anyone of you guys encounter a MESSAGE ALERT TONE problem?? the volume is set to HIGH/MAXIMUM but when receiving a text message the TONE is too LOW.
Please indicate your country in your reply. thanks
