This phone is just great. The keypad is comfy and the flashlight is very useful. This is my communicator and my galaxy s3 is just for fun.
I bought 2 NOKIA1280 for our trip to VietNam, China- they work excellently well. Does Nokia 1280 work well in Australia: Sydney, Melbourne Adelaide?
Last question: does it need any specific SIM card or just a SIM card? and where to buy a SIM card in Sydney?
Nokia 3110c uses BL-5C battery
Nokia 1280 uses BL-5CB battery
i have exchanged battery from my friend's nokia 1280 to my nokia 3110c.. my phone getting started and working fine with his BL-5CB battery but not getting charged, showing 'not charging' error...
Now i want to know whether my original BL-5C battery will get charged by his nokia 1280 charger or not..?
subhrajyoti, 02 Aug 2013i want to buy but nowhere it is available, please tell where i can buy?Dear Shubhrajyoti, if you are not finding this mobile in your local market, you can go for its new incarnation which is Nokia-103. But I want to tell you that the voice quality of the loudspeaker (Nokia-1280) is very poor. This is my personal experience. Also this hand set is not compatible with my Tata-Docomo-GSM sim. I am in Lucknow, India. It works fine with Reliance.
Nokia 1280 is not properly good due to water effect.
1. If it fell in to water that is the end.
2.It also lost Network when it rains
the most amazing phone i've ever used. packed with all the essentials. radio is clear & powerful. battery life is amazing. glad I own one :D

I bought 2 on eBay 2 years ago from seperate sellers. I did-so in case one broke, but it hasn't yet.
Lovely basic phone that's robust and serves all my needs.
i upgraded ';)' myself to this fone after using several smartfones including samsung galaxy S, the but this fone is simply unbeatable !!
Nokia 1280 is the monster!! I had one and i know this phone is the best in the world.. And i will buy it some more... Good job Nokia... I hope Nokia will continue this phone forever..
i don't know but nokia shd give OTA update so i can updated to windows 8...
