The card was around 80 bucks. As for upgrade, already using ver 3.65. So guess hv to wait for nokia to reply on what is the problem. I know of another 6280 having same problem.
I hardly encounter any of the sort too..see if the firmware on ur mobile is of ver 3.65,if not get the upgrade from Nokia Service Centre.
Press this on ur mobile *#0000# Updated firmware currently in Spore in 3.65
On the issue of the words can be save,Heres the post from Rian;
I have recently managed to get my dictionary to save words..
here is how i have acheived this:
1. Create a new message. (make sure T9 is turned on)
2. In the 'message:' field type the word you want added to your dictionary. (Once it is not automatically found in the dictionary, your handset will ask you to spell the word.)
3. Spell the word and then click "save".
4. Now Press the Hangup Button on your phone (the red one). (The message should be saved to your drafts..)
5. Now create a new message.. type the word in.. and it should be in your dictionary.
I have tested this on 3 Nokia 6280's With Vodafone Australia Software installed on them and it has been sucessful. (V03.60 10-02-06) not sure how it works on any other model though.
Hi Dissapointed G@L
Its true,Star*** will refer you direct to Nokia. Not sure y..when i bought a siemens from them last time,they have 7days exchange policy. It boils down to the mobile phone company policy i guess exception to Singtel,they have superior service.
Hope that your phone will be alright.
Am using a 1 GB kingston mini sd card to store images and videos. The abrupt stopping occurs even when the phone memory or nokia provided card is used. Even the guy at the nokia shop indicated that he has never encountered this type of error so he needs to confirm with engineers. Actually bought phone more for 3G video call and now am afraid that there will be problems using this feature.
anyone who has used this phone that has any input about the slider mechanism? it seems like theres a 50-50 chance of getting one with a bad build quality...
Bought hp on Sat 28/04. compared with a fren who has same hp model, my hp “slider” was extra loose and has a slight gap in between when “slider” is closed.. Mon 01/05 went back to shop (authorized vendor) to exchange, was told Nokia doesn’t have a 1 to 1 direct xchange policy.. Mine is on Star***.. **is this true??** Checked with Nokia Center and they say they do not have xchange policy.. my fren who is on Sing*** however have a 3 day exchange policy.. sent hp to Nokia on Tues 02/05 and told to collect 2morroe.. Hrs later they call back and say the slider parts is out of stock.. need a couple of days b4 I can collect.. with all the bad xperiences sum users r encountering, worried that when I collect the hp, more problems will arise.. did not try much on the hp coz initially expecting xchange..**sigh**
hi guys this is an amazing phone which i have never seen.. only the thing is this is pretty big..
minor corrections on my last post...it's supposed to be 6MB internal memory and not 6GB...2.4MB of the 6MB is already occupied by pre-installed graphics which you could not delete...already part of the system.
it comes with a nokia pc suite to transfer files directly to the mmc therefore no need to remove mmc from the slot to avoid resettings of tones, themes,etc...
By the way how do you check what version of firmware the phone is running?
i checked the pnone memory it,s got 1.8mb of free memory i dont have any multimedia msg,s ready for sending and i tried to switch it of and on again and it,s still not working. This is my second 6280 i returned the other yesterday and they gave me a new one apart from this issue and the fact it does'nt save words in the dictionary it,s not a bad fone
Abt the Video recording that stops itself,possibility of low batt or could be low in phone memory/mini-sd.See whether it helps..
The best possibility to that is to actually use PC Suite and either 1)do a 6610 backup only on messages and restore to 6280 or 2) u can sync 6610 and saved the Message into the PC before transferring into 6280 via PC Suite too. Its tedious yes,but not when u do it on Sunday afternoon :) Best of Luck!
Try to check phone memory status to confirm,delete "SENT multimedia" if you have stored alot of multimedias messages in the SENT folder. Switch off the phone & power it up. Tell me wats the outcome. Thks.
Manage to get the online upgrade software thingy that request for?
Hi guys wondering if anyone can help me i,m trying to send a photo through multimedia but the phone is saying memory temporarily low try again later. i only have a couple of photo,s on the phone is this normal?
Just purchased n6280 i had a n6610 earlier which i intend to keep n6280 is indeed a good phone COuld anyone tell me to how to transfer messages in the inbox of 6610 to that of n6280 PLZZZZZZZZz
just bought this phone over the weekend. have a problem with video recording in that it stops itself after about 1/2 second without user intervention. anyone else has experienced this problem?
I agree with you as im on Kingston 1GB too. Lucky that i have got have it replace after the mini-sd got "nowhere insight" lol!.
I assume ur on S***T** is it? try to monitor whether its happen on that particular vicinity or it happens all the time. Mine is on Star*** but the phone has no signal problem(except for areas that ive already know where it does have proper coverage.
Hi kiril mk,
It will take less than a min to click on the "specifications" Cheers man!
? u guys sure out of topic and banging ur frustration at the wrong place,my pity towards you!
U sure that it has 6gb (gigabyte) onboard? U can stored video or photos on the mini-sd and use it for photo or video call. But like any other device,if u pull the mini-sd out,for sure the phone will put in the default tones back in place.Its called resetting when data/or files used suddenly becomes unavailable.
it comes with one small pamphlet which says the unit supports 2gb mini sd card...i'm using a 1gig kingston card.
it also supports photo call,i've assigned pictures (jpeg, gif or video files)on some of my contacts.unfortunately, it will be saved on the phone itself (internal memory which only has 6gb but it comes with pre installed apps and folders-2.4gb that you can not delete)...the remaining memory now is only 2.7gb but the phone still works fast.
the headset with stereo sound is acceptable but it would be nicer if its hi-fi like n91.
2 to 3 days battery life.
it reboots once in a while.
nevertheless, i still prefer this fone...for now.
So, is anyone else just fed up with waiting for Orange to release the Nokia 6280. I've been with Orange for 6 years now, however, out of interest took at peek at the O2 web site and couldnt believe how much more they offer on their tarrifs, not only that, they have a rather funky looking Samsung Z400 due for release in June - were all used to waiting for Orange month on end, however, the new Samsung looks alot more stylish and packed with a 2mp camera and 3G! FAB! I'm jumping ship!!!
s**t no symbian. i was hoping this phone to have s60 but it has advanced version of s40 i chainged my mind I'm gonna get my self N70
