Find a Nokia Experience Center and ask them how to upgrade the firmware. To find the closest Experience Center go (http://www.nokiausa.com/experience?cpid=ILC-2001-205). Nokia 6270 is not supported by Nokia USA, so upgrading has to be done by an authorized private technician. You can find names of authorized technicians at Nokia Experience Center. They are very helpful at Experience Center and they know at least one authorized technician. If you live in Los Angeles, I know one in this area.
Hi, can anyone tell me where i can get the new firmware for this phone Version 3.69, this would be much appreciated.
I couldnt agree less, sorry.
I have a 6270 phone for 3 months and it is the best phone I had. It sounds amazing, it is very fast actually (it's not slow like some 3G phones). And it feels great with that metalic touch in our hands.
The screen in simply amazing, one of the best!
Very user friendly.
Based on my 3 month experience, I do recomend it!
mine works perfectly.... SOME OF YOU MAYBE DON'T KNOW HOW TO OPERATE A PHONE PROPERLY or too DEMANDING. why keep complaining anyway? just buy yourself a 5110 for a phone(so no complaining), a digi cam (for a perfect pic), a mp3 player (for better music), and laptop for pete sake!its just a phone with some extra features... not all phones are perfect, all phones has flaws...
The ringer is loud and clear. I have an unlocked Nokia 6270. People don't have to believe in me. The phone is available to try, so if you are interested , you can go to a phone shop and test the phone. Again, the new firmware is very stable and Nokia 6270 with firmware version 3.69 is the best in its class. If you have an unstable phone, upgrade the firmware.
What about the ringer quality? Maybe you tell me that this inlocked Nokia (not modified by any carrier) has normal ringers too? COME ON!!!!!!!
And the menu interface is not fast
PEOPLE DON'T BELIEVE THIS GUY. He is probably working for Nokia or GSM arena!!!!
Go to any GSM Phone store and check for yourself!
The only perfect Nokia phone today with really fast interface, loud ringer and normal design is my 6170!!!!
STOP LYING ABOUT 6270 HERE!
People who played with the phone at a phone store, cannot have the best conclusion. I bought the phone and none of those claims are true. Phone is not slow at all. Nokia 6270 has a fast interface. I had Nokia 3230, SE K700, SE K750 and many more ; but 6270 is the best of those. However, SE K750 has better camera. Please don't mislead other people. This is a free country but misrepresenting is against the law.
In case of my fault of forgetting to click submit botton, I'm reposting the truthful review.
First of all people: don't believe phone reviews of 6270 made by people who never held this so-called multimedia devise. I personally went to GSM Phone store to test 6270 and 7370 models and to my bid dissapontment both devises coudn't perform well as phones.
-Very slow menu interfase
-Very slow dialing and phone in general
-The so-called 3d stereo sound is very quiet
-On top of quiet 3d stereo there is only 15 crappy ringtones and there is no even a normal ring-ring
-The rediculous desktop menu style could not be changed into a normal list style
As for the sound quality, I don't know since I didn't get to the point of making a test call. Most likely soud is loud since the phone is of normal thickness (but you never know again: look at the stereo 3d sound).
IT'S A SHAME THAT BY NOW NOKIA ALSO BECAME CRAPPY PHONE MANUFACTURER.
Now we have no normal phone brands in the United States at all!
I bought my Nokia 6270 two weeks ago and I'm very happy with the phone. My 6270 has the latest firmware which is version 3.69. I don't have any restarting problem or white screen. The only problem is the voice mail indicator (voice mail icon), I'm Cingular customer and the problem is because of Cingular Voice Mail program. Phone is not compatible with Cingular Voice Mail program. Again, the new firmware is very stable and Nokia 6270 with firmware version 3.69 is the best in its class.
it is very bad and disappointing phone i returned it back. do not bye it
Is any of you using a ATT Sim card in the Nokia 6270? If so, is any of you having any problem? Please let me know.I'd appreciate it.
About this line I wrote:
" The battery life goes up to 3 or 4 days with regular use (45 min calls, a bunch of sms reading/writing and some pics taken)."
Obviously, those numbers are for a single day.
I bought a dark brown few months ago and it's excelent, I never had a problem with it (no restarting, no blanck screen, nothing!).
It feels really great in my hand, the body made of metal is really 'sexy' and the loudspeakers do sound great.
The battery life goes up to 3 or 4 days with regular use (45 min calls, a bunch of sms reading/writing and some pics taken).
I highly recomend it :)
i m buying this phone guys. can u tell me which is the best color to buy?
this fone is very dumb fone it IS very bad in sense of battery.its battery is awful and its finishing is disgusting.HUH!!!
Wanted to know which would be a better phone to use out of the 6270 and the 6280(in terms of video,picture and sound quality as well as other functions)?? Also if the software in 6270 is updated then would the problem of restarting and the screen blacking of the phone b cured???
Would really appreciate any help on this...Thnx[QUOTE]
The 6270 and 6280 are virtually the same phone. The main difference being that the 6280 is 3G and the 6270 is not. Both phones seem to have the occasional rebooting problem, but this isn't really an issue, i've had mine 2 months now almost and its only rebooted twice while i was just trying to do to much.Also bare in mind most new phones have rebooting problems, infact they're not problems, they reboot to stop the phone from actaully crashing, which i'm sure would be much more of a pain. The 6280 is slightly smaller than the 6270, but an advantage of the 6270 is that it has Stereo sound and very good stereo sound. In terms of picture and video quality they're exactly the same. They're basically the same phone just the 6280 has 3G and the extra bits that come with 3G phones. So the choice is yours, i opted for the 6270 because i didn't want to have any of the 3G features and i'm happy with my choice.
its very very cool and looks so hot :D
i cant wait till next weeks when i will have it.
in my oppininon looks better than 6111 and its more good copare 2 that :)
sorry no offense
well okey nw..ive used dis phone for around 2 months now..and i have discovered the following-excellent sound,the camera is amazing(d problem with it occurs wen u zoom in,oderwise it rocxx!),then the vid. rec. is a bit of a drawback,phone hangs-bad...the upper part is shaky,well ive dropped the phone three.times..and its pretty much scratch resistant..dere is active call recording..it works best with a 512 mb card..and the feel of the altogether is amazing..
i trully loooove my phone..and i would seriously advice people to go ahead and buy this.. (and yea dont buy 6280..i have that phone as well..it has got nothin-sound quality is badddonly 1 speaker..+ it has all the drawbacks of 6270 in it.except its slide is a bit better)
Recently I bought 6270, its wonderful.Sound is too good, treat for music lovers. Yes, I do accept that it supports only 3GP video format. Except this, the phone is really rocks in its class. Sliding design is sexy, weighs 125Gms. But, it seems its weightless.
Camera clarity is good and video recording is good. Keypad is not only big, but sexy. Lot of features with a nominal price.
I really feel proud to own Nokia 6270,because it ROCKS...
