i've been reading the posts and got tired of this restart and reset thing, i have to say im not a tech man but i kill the phone for as long as it takes untill i find a solution, the thing with the 6280 restarting has to do with the MMS delivery report, if u sent an MMS with the report set to ON,, when its delivered the report is supposed to come back to you,, and thats when the phone restarts automatically.
ok now i have the solution, all u need to do is:
1-to turn off the MMS report for in ur 6280.
2-remove the simcard and put it in an other mobile, clear all the reports and SMSs pending, better if the other phone was set for MMS, make sure that all the pending reports and SMSs are cleared( wait for 10 minutes and try callin and texting).
3-now return the simcard to the 6280 and enjoy the a restartless life!!
this is guaranteed to solve this issue cuz i've tried it on so many 6280 phones, but u will have to give up the MMS delivery reports.
i know that mobile phones arent supposed to behave this way,, but if u like it u'll have to deal with its malfunctions ;)
please get back to me if it does not work.
ive jus ordered the 6280 n read the comments..is it really like a brick? how big is it compared 2 the motorola l6..can ne1 tell me
hey all, just got the nokia 6280 on '3', also have a Sony Ericsson w800i on Voda, can anyine tell me what the biggest memory card they've got running in their 6280? I have 2Gb in S/E atm but want the same for the 6280. Anyone got any ideas?
Also Where can u download the theme creator for the 6280?
can anyone help, my new 6280, doesn't have very good service on 02, and my other phone nokia also on 02 that i carry round at the same time has excellent service, can anyone advise if they have this problem! please help!
Very good phone that I ever had...I'm using BalckBerry 7100 from Airtel also this one...this is really cool and nice one. Good choice to go with.
i had the 6280 as a gift. been using it for the past week. i have upgraded the software to ver 3.65. but i still have some problems with it restarting. but it is not as frequent as before.
also does anyone have problems with charging the phone? i have charged it recently and it indicates its charging but after a while when i switch off the power of the charger, the phone has not been charged! and it feels hot.
i have to switch it off and turn on the charger again and its charging properly.
encountered this twice.... not sure if anyone has the same problem?
Firstly im sad that most user take their 6280 as some solid brick. One cracked the screen and start wondering if its too thin a screen and ask if any1 faced this problem before. For this kind of people,i just have one word for it: ignorance. Its your fault for placing the phone insensitvely causing unnecesary distress to yourself!
2nd type of ignorance: Start asking unlogical qtns after purchasing the 6280, y did u bought it first before reading the Specs & features of this phone on medias like nokia web sites,forums? when things go wrong, surprisingly you know where to put your feedback!
3rd type of ignorance: You expect your phone to be a washing machine,use n use until it spoilt and then buy a new one. Who the hell in the world would wanna send the mashing machine for software upgrades? Only phone yes becos like humans,its not perfect. Software upgrades is the best means to make sure that it can be improve
on whats its shortfalls are.
Sighs..yu expect phones to be high end & sofphisticated but look at urself are you up to the phones standard? Think again ladies & gentlemen..just look at the "low end" kind of qtns you have been asking..
EVERYONE PLEASE HELP THANKS:
How do I remove the battery cover on the back? It's impossible!! Any help please.
I try to slide forward but it won't move
don,t know about this phone want to know the (+)points & good feathers about this phone
Let me repeat. I own both 6280 & SE K750i.
If ur priority is 2 take excellent foto, then 4get abt nokia's 2mp camera, coz it sux. Instead, u shld either get nokia's 3mp camera series or any SE model wif 2mp camera.
In consolation, it has been reviewed tat 6280 take very good video compared 2 the K750i. Though personally i've not used both fones 2 take similar video 4 comparison.
Like i said b4, there's nothing wrong wif 6280's slider; it is meant 2 b not 2 loose & not 2 tight.
I've tried transfering files via bluetooth & infrared, to-and-fro from my PC, notebook, K750i, & i've not encountered any prob.
FYI my 6280 is still on firmware 3.60 bought in Singapore.
The main prob abt 6280 is, the moment u bought it u gotta send straight 2 the service centre 4 upgrading 2 version 3.65. Bcoz version 3.60 got bug; ur 6280 will auto-shutdown then restart.
This only prove tat Nokia didn't extensively test the 6280 b4 releasing it 2 the public 4 sale, which many users r very disappointed.
Previously i've had few other nokia fones too. All also encountered same prob; auto-shutdown, similarly gotta send 4 firmware upgrade.
On the other hand, the 6280's 'Organiser' is simply excellent! Not 4getting it's user-friendly interface, large fonts 4 text msging, large crystal clear screen, large keypads. These r the reasons y i hv my K750i as 'reserve' fone.
bin, ask u u dun anyhow install games liao...u still put 20 over plus games, hee...anyway if u up too much of ur memory, ur phone confirm lag 1 ma...
hi plz any one know a web for programms 6280 plz send it on my email ( email@example.com)
The saddest thing about my phone is send to nokia for firmware update...why? cos my screen black out only can see battery indicator....so i thought everything should be fine abt the upgrade...then
it cannot read my mp4, 3gp videos....which is few days after the upgrade...and finally a week went by....
my phone today, the go to button just wouldn't work and is getting laggy...damn....
tell me whats wrong?
thinking of going all the way back to nokia care centre AGAIN, wasting my time and money(transportation). thought of changing it to n80 at nokia shop....is it possible? anyone can advise?
and also you can use your nokia 6280 as a webcam,remote control for tv and other... ,mc's Word aplication ,photo editor etc. just keep looking for softwares ;)
I had bought nokia 6280 for 5months and i don't have problems with the area coverage , slider , battery , camera , bluetooth so STOP FKING THE PEOPLES MIND if you are pressing to hard the slider it will loose normaly but if you take care of it YOU WON"T HAVE PROBLEMS
This is sickening.
Can't imagine buying a brand new phone, then sending it straight to nokia service centre for upgrading.
Does anybody know where to download 6280 firmware version 3.65???
Can i download it direct to my 6280???
to game ,,,i dont know anyone who has cracked the three network and even if you do there software will still be there!!I had a sim free phone and put a three sim card in it but could not get threes settings to make it work on the browser ,,weird company with people who you cant understand on end of phone ..weird
I'm considering the 6280 or Samsung D600 and my local shop was not sure about the document viewer. I've read reviews that said the 6280 can display MS excel and word files- is that true?
Anyone recommend one phone over the other?
Oh Dear..After waiting 3 weeks for the phone when it turned it, it was a similar size to a House Brick. The slider creaks, and seems a little loose to me. When you put the slide function on "slide-up" answer and "slide down end" it does not work when you end the call. When you slide the phone up to either make or answer a call the function square in the middle of the phone is in the way, and you occasionally push a button by mistake, there by ending the call, or opening an application. This is simply beacuse the slide function is NO WHERE NEAR THE SLICK FEEL OF SAMSUNG PHONES. Its almost stiff to move in comparison. Nice screen, nice big buttons, You have to have a Dog's hearing to hear the keypad tones even on the loudest setting. Oh and one final thing, the MP4 and aac files which came on the mini card do not play, the message says "this function is not available in this phone"...But the card came with it?? Very strange. Many menu's deep inside the other's.
Shame, nokia should have taken the samsung phones apart and copied the slide mechanism
and slide functions. Fancy shutting the slide and the call still being connected, that's one of the main points of slide phones.
Mines on the way back.
