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.
So I have only had the phone for one week and all seemed well until the screen cracked. As yet I am not sure how this has happened as the phone has been in my handbag all day. On inspection I am wondering if this is a model problem as the screen seems very thin in the middle. Has this happened to anyone else or is my handbag beating up my phone?
Hi , i`ve didn`t had internet connection in the last 3 days , and it will be repaired tomorow i hope .. my antena broken X( :((
I hope i`ll talk with you soon people ;)
the best phone i have ever had. I think i will not chanege it at least in a year time.
av ad this fone for bout 3 months now an the camera is excellent, except when u use the flash cos its too close to the lens causin a white blur down one side.
Also, when u go to silent mode, when u change back to general the fone crashes. Must be a bug in the software.
Not too impressed with it to be honest.
Thanks for the theme site Khurram Riaz. Do you, or anyone else for that matter, have any other theme sites? I just got my nokia 6280 and I'm looking at trying to find a lot of themes. I will eventually make my own theme, but I need to find a lot so I can have an idea on what to use or change. Thanks everyone.
For the guys who are looking for site to download free themes and other things here you go I bet you will love it :-
i tested the video call and my friend“s reception was very nice but mine wasn“t, i couldn't see his face. is this my phone's problem or his?
There is nothing wrong wif the built-quality of the 6280's slider. It is meant this way; not 2 loose, not 2 tight.
The ONLY prob is, this fone c/w firmware version 3.60 which has bug. Thus the moment u bought it, u gotta bring it 2 Nokia care centre & upgrade 2 version 3.65.
I've been very bz wif work, can't afford 2 visit nokia care centre & leave my fone wif them for few days 2 upgrade.

hey guys i was wandering r any nokia stores available to fix the slide mecanism if it loosens up during time and usage?
and this phone is the best i have found no problems or defects so this phone is the best phone ive seen out in w.a
i've had this phone for about two weeks, on 3, in aus,
and i think it's great. i've had it on charge twice ( no lies)
and in the mean-time i've had bluetooth on, been sending messages, listening to music for more that two hours a day, making phone calls, playing games etc. So for me the battery life is good.
The one thing that IS annoying me is that i cant find any decent themes to download for free. I'm on a mac, so i can't use the phone studio software, which means i can't make my own.
