I've used the phone for 5 weeks and it's been working fine. I used it for 3G Internet as I've no fixed line at home. In general, my phone works > 12 hours a day, multitasking among voice calls, video calls and Internet.
Got a Kingston 1GB MiniSD for a week and that's working fine too. WARNING: DO NOT password protect or your card will go 'missing' from phone AND PC. Nokia Centre in S'pore says this is Kingston's problem, but I'm not so sure about that!
Only dislike is camera doesn't auto focus, else generally it's a great phone.
Just because your phone went wrong. doesnt mean its the worst phone ever. Phones DO inevitably go wrong. It just so happens your one went wrong so close to the purchase date...
Yes u can format it on the phone.It will create 2 main folder that is Image & Video. If you had read my previous post, i do not recommend you setting password to the mini-sd.
Slot in the Mini-sd and got to 'galery' and u will find 'memory card'. Point to it and get the option to display 'format card' Cheers!
Hi I work for a UK network and we have withdrawn the Nokia 6280 due to software problems at the moment this is why you might have probs with the phone shutting down.
I have recently Purchased Nokia 6280, and want to use 1GB MMS card., what is the option to FORMAT the card in Hand Set itself.
it's the worst nokia ever.i've bought one last week and after 6 days it broke down(baterry, soft and the display)...
Im from spore and i just bought a 6280. And just 1 day, my phone has auto shut down and restarted itself twice. Moreover, sometimes the phone has no reception at all. I need to off and on the phone again to gain back my reception (all these while im at the same place). Another thing is tat the battery is full in the morning, and den half in the evening and i have not even started listening to mp3 yet. Im going to Nokia to haf this fixed. If problem persists, im going to make a scene at all nokia service centres in singapore.
This is my 2nd phone from nokia that has the exact same problem with my 7650. Had it fixed yet problem persists. At that time, i was lucky to win a hp from a lucky draw and sold the 7650 to a shop. And hence i did not pay much attention to it. Now, having this 6280 is the BIGGEST mistake of my life. I will Update u guys on the visit to nokia care centre.
That is absolutely true bcos each themes comes with a preset wallpaper,screensaer,tones so if a new themes were to be activated,simply go to settings to have ur preferred wallpapers,screensavers or tones. :)
N series are running on Symbian where else 6280 is running on series40.
6280 is posible to have java based applications installed.

Well said Supersonic :)
Is the web upgrade thingy is of reliable source? Hope it doesnt damage ur N6280, good luck!
Can you e-mail that to me , so i can try it too ? [ of course , if u really have that upgrade :D ]
The Security code is 12345... This phone doesn't support .SIS file as it is not loaded with Symbian Operating System... When recieving a file, if the phone memory cannot hold this file it is automatically saved on the memory card (if the space in the memory card is adequate)... that's all. Cheers :)
big files connot go in my 6280 phone.it says memory full and sending failed.when i send from my computer.i want to send files to memory card directly
wat im gonna say is OMG. my new phone doesn't support sis files. so how am i gonna install all those softwares and applications. does all phones doesnt support these files or onli mine???
i got mine on contract about a month a go and its ok except for randomly switching off and back on which i find highly annoying and the phone itself has next to nothing memory so now own a 512mb card but need a 1gig iaint gonna start on the memory as its ok all ya gotta do si get a memory card and aim at making the phone look more cool and kick ass just it randomly switching off is well annoying i mean i have had my nokia 6230 for a year and its only done that 5times and its been used aot and yet this 6280 has already done it twice as much yet only one month old
People Listen up....
I have got a Nokia Firware Upgrading Software Called "Phoenix Service SW 2006 v12.5.136.exe" & a Firware for Nokia 6280 (v3.70).
But when I install the Software mentioned above it says "Dongle Needs to be connected".
What the heck is that about?
