Very, very good.. Shayn, you know that in 2089 will release N405 with 1000GB.. are you ******* or what... if everybody though like you, nobody bought a phone.. You buy a phone, thinking which phones will release 3 years after... Oh, can you tell me; when do you think you'll die.. people don't use to live more than 100 years, you know.... Simply buy a phone, whitout thinking on phones that will release then... Think in the moment.. and NOW Nokia 6280 is one of the best on the market...
Very very good phone...
Iv ordered this phone and its coming in 1 week ! What do i have to look foward to ?
Does it have a good sound quality??Is it better than 3250 excluding 3g and symbian??
The Nokia 6280 is an excellent phone but howerver i would go for N80 or N91 which are more better. Ive heard rumours aboot Nokia 6290 n Nokia 6280i n where da Nokia N101 or sumting like dat will have 12 - 14 GB of memory onboard da phone...
We just wait n see peoplez....
It's a good camera video phone but also a boring phone (not many functions). I rather go for a new symbian phone like 3250 (somemore cheaper). What you think?
I'm using a 1GB card with this phone and it doesn't seem to effect performance (Not that it's that quick anyway).
I changed from o2 to '3' bout 2 months ago to get the 6280. I can honestly say that I have better coverage with '3' than I did with o2. I think this may be the case in a lot of non major towns & cities where 02's 3G service is non-existent. For example where I live o2 only have about 2 transmitters, which give good coverage in general but in certain places signal is poor or non-existent. Due to the fact that '3' have to use more transmitters over the same area, I now have 100% signal in places where o2 is poor. Obviously when out of '3' coverage you are using o2 network, so you get the best of both. The comments most people make about '3' is that coverage is poor & calls are dropped when moving between networks.
If your thinking of joining 3 but are not entirely sure then you can always return the phone if your not happy.
Personally as of yet i've had no network problems. I nearly always have a good 3G signal and can't fault the service.
I've had a 3G phone on Orange and the content was very limited. With '3' browsing is free and many things are free to download.
If you want a 3G phone then this is the best available at the moment and works well with the '3' network.If you're looking to buy this phone and are not bothered using 3G then I would buy a different model. It's good as a 3G handset but otherwise very average and a bit big in size.
I wouldn't even think of buying this phone on any other network.
I'm from Singapore and I've used this phone for a few days.It's a great phone! It doesn't shut down or hang on me. Just a question, does using a 1 gig card slow it down? And why does the memory reflect the 64MB card as having only about 15MB space? Thank you.
Is 3 its own network or does it use someone elses? I only ask as i heard it had poor coverage in this past and this put me off. People do seem to say that this has improved but I'd appreciate any info people have. Cheers.
I emailed Orange tonight actually to ask about upcoming phones, and I got a standard letter saying that they had received a high amount of emails and that my response could be delayed. Now I know why! Haha. O2 haven't released this phone either.
Hope you get your phones very soon.
Re:Orange 6280. I sent a strongly worded e-mail about this to orange yesterday and got a standard response saying that it will be out sometime this month an that they hope this helps! obviously they have had so many queries they are just sending out this standard response as the reply did not address any of the points or complaints i had raised in my email. Is this what they call customer service? pathetic! if i was very near the end of my contract i would take great pleasure in cancelling but unfortuantely i am stuck with orange for now!
I left Orange about 2 months ago now to get this phone on the Three network in the UK. Since then i havent looked back. Great network, great coverage, top deals, awesome 3G stuff. And i have grown more and more impressed with this phone. The 6280 speaks for itself really, its initially very impressive. But after two months its; if anything, even more impressive. Highly recommended, well done Nokia.
Oh and if you can i'd download the new java version of the old classic shooter 'Doom'. Its helped me through many a boring hour at work...
I have a friend who works for Nokia, and he believes that Nokia are planning a 6280i with 3.2mp camera and improved battery life for Q4 2006. Might be worth waiting for given how long the 6280 has taken now.
any one please say for me the votes waht nuber is better for the votes 1or2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 please
You can buy the phone now in Belgium at 'Phone House' for about 380euro! Still waiting for some though to appear on eBay...
I have the 6280 for a single day and I must recomend it! Good sound, weight, size, menus, screen, photos, etc Igot it free from operators and I think the most problems that are reported here are in phones modified by operators! I tested it and found no problems the people are talking here and there. By the way there is a lot of years that I do not adquire phones modified by operators. Here in Portugal I bought it for 368 euros and I am satisfied. It only misses a mini SD of 1 or 2 GB!!!! I trying to find one to buy. Good luck with your phones.
Even easier video capture: Press and hold the camera button on the side of thr phone to enter video record mode. Press the button quickly and you access the camera facility!
Paul, I also sent Orange an email detailing my disappointment about the Nokia 6280 on Orange(or lack thereof). Hoping that if enough people do the same they might take notice and finally stop messing around with the menu's and layout or whatever it is they're doing with it and finally release it!
