I got this phone yesterday & i am very pleased with it - no problems yet (touch wood!). My slider is not loose but i do find it a little tricky when opening it as i sometimes accidently press the buttons. I need to buy a bigger memory card as mine is only 64 and is running out already. Lovely little phone, much better than my old Samsung d500 (which i was very pleased with at the time). Excellent pic quality, great music & v easy to use.
Great phone howevever you can not add words to the T9 Dictionary. Nothing is remembered. This is a real pain when you text more than call. (i send about 700 texts a week! annoying!)
Well, I bought the Nokia 6280 2 days ago, and it's working very smooth, no problems in the software (BTW the softare version I have is 3.6) and it's very stable. The 2MP cam is good (guys don't forget it is a phone, and not a digital camera), you will have some good photos displayed on the computer, and pictures taken in a good light conditions will be excellent. The music player is clear and loud enough - lets say - in the car, although the phone doesn't have a 3D surround like 6270, but when you connect the earphones you will have a great sound. Lots of features and customizations added, some annoying features like Delivery Reports are fixed. The screen has brilliant colors, everything is clear even if viewed in the sun. I encountered only one problem and by the way it's normal; the slide is loose when it's closed, I checked another 4 new ones and the are all the same (Someone from Sydney has the same problem and that's for you), I'm trying to find a solution but not in mind yet! Anyways, all in all it's a great phone with such loaded features, and I recommend it.
Nice Phone with great features but!!
1) It sometimes resets itself without a reason. Just siwthches itself off and on
2) Also i've discoverd that when i send a file from Nokia 6230i through bluetooth, the phone will instantly crash.I already got a third phone.
Nokia customer service could not provide me with any information. But the phone dealer spilled some beans by telling me that Nokia had a software malfuction in the phone, which had something to do with sending protocols.
But overall a nice phone.
I use a 1Gig MiniSD, works great
And I can't enjoy to watch movies during my classes :D
Upset Customer (S'po
I really hope it won`t be so bad on mine ...
Today , after it was broken , i getted to the dealer , and him said to me to go again tomorow at about 9 PM to replace mine with a new one ..
too bad .. it`s a nice phone , nice features... in Romania it cost`s a FORTUNE and brokes the second day :(
In Romania it`s about 500 dollars , and my mother (teacher ) it`s paid with about 250 dollars on month ... so .. it`s a big price , and i am going crazy ...
On my opinion , now the 6270 it`s better , but 6280 smarter , i`m waiting for a stable software , i think he was that who brake .. or the display .. :(
Got one today, after deciding to ditch Orange and switch to 3. Sadly there is virtually no signal where I live so it's going to have to go back. Shame really, it seems really nice.
Might have to go for the SE W810i on Orange instead...

I commented on this problem before. Me too also experiencing the same issue - Phone auto restart while sms or playing MP3.
My terrible ordeal:
1) Brought the phone on 22Mar06
2) Change a new set on 28Mar06
3) Send in to Nokia service centre on 02Apr06
(Collection on 03Apr06)
4) Send in 2nd time to Nokia on 09Apr06
(Collection on 11Apr06)
5) Send in 3rd time to Nokia on 12Apr06
(Collection on 18Apr06 - Motherboard was changed)
6) Still having the same problem. Send in 4th time to Nokia on 19Apr06)- Demanding a new workable phone or a FULL REFUND.
The after sales service is disappointing ......
*** Ringtone using MP3 files was very soft hence you can't hear it when it is in your bag. Was advised by Nokia staff, I need to bear with this defect***
So those who are considering this phone - PLEASE Wait for awhile.
I'm wondering whether this is due to it is mmade in China???
pfffffffff , i buyed one yesterday , and i observed that is a good phone ..nice camera , mp3 ... cheap miniSD , nice design ... Finally ..it`s a good phone , but very unstable software , it broken today .. in less then 24 hours and 12 hours of function :| . Good luck if u want to buy one , you`ll need it :))=))
One thing is annoying. When I use Bluetooth headset - Nokia HDW-3 - with 6280 every time it changes volume to quite low level and I have to make it louder very often. Do You have the same problem?
This is my second Nokia 6280 both have been faulty. The phone keeps turning off for a few seconds and then turn back on.
can anyone tell me what the "push to talk " does ? it`s like a walkye talkye ? or what ? :-??
LATEST FROM O2 UK
Phone is up on their website and you can order it if new customer.
The lady I just spoke to said it will be in by Friday...but she also told me that there were still 1 or 2 probs which was why it was being delayed so much since 4th April.
She also told me that they had had a email from nokia about the 6111 and how they are NOT manufacturing anymore of these models!!!
Im glad that I didnt go for that model then. Am still hoping to get the 6280 on O2 - and hoping that the firmware is 3.60 or possibly higher
I am the owner of the nokia 6280...what can i say about it from negative side... 1.nokia 6280 has a flash problem...i try to take a photo at night...the image look bad and blur..but when i open the rear cover and take photo at night the image look ok...
2. The slider are loose and i don't think it normal...
