I got this phone a few weeks ago. Had the problem with battery life initially but was ok after a week or so. Hasn't crashed one me yet. Main issue I have is I've got bluetooth built into the car and wile the device paired up ok, it keeps disconnecting itself. Is this an issue with the phone or car software?
Does anyone know where I can get this phone without the three logo? The ones being sold by Plemix are Three residuals - they all come with the Three logo!!!
a reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaally good phone!!!! does almost everything[almost]!!!!!!!!!!!
Like most people I was suprised by Plemix's low price - I've contacted them just to make sure and yep - their package DOESN'T include the standard 64MB mini SD card! but more horrifying is that it also doesn't include the software cd-rom & usb cables!!!! O_O
Samstores has a even better price with the standard package, however their verification process required for internatonal orders is just outrageous (i.e. they want a scanned copy of the fron AND back of your credit card) + driver's license... yesh!
so the slider is kind of like nokia 8800 but the other features are like nokia 6230 and 6270 etc... just wandering how the slider works 1 click it pops out?
I have had this phone for around 6 weeks and it's the best phone I have ever had, battery life is not the best but cos I get so any free minutes on 3 i use it more than my 7250i, Maybe I have been lucky but it takes great pics and vids.
I have waited and I have waited and I have given up. Been waiting for this phone since last October. Every time it appears to near a release date it gets delayed, probably due to all the issues the phone seems to still have. I heard that the original delay around Decmber last year was due to software issues, and from what I have read from you guys, it is far from fixed yet. I am going to break my rule of not going outside Nokia and head for the Sony Ericsson W810i, the new Walkman phone.

Course vodafone, orange and O2 wanted the 6280, of course, but they can´t because nokia has a contract with 3 till the end of march... and don't compare this phone with samsung d 600.. don't compare nokia and samsung, it's impossible... I am sure that 6280 is on sell on april.. because the contract with 3 ends in march and you'll see that aal others networks will sell this phone on april.. wait only to resolve the problems.. it's very beautiful and a great bgreat phone.. you'll see when you get it... hasta
If the 6280 would have been a top class mobile i am sure Orange,Vodafone + O2 would have released this mobile early it proves they can"t have rated this mobile as a challenge to the Samsung D600 i wanted this mobile when i first heard about it but i am getting feed up an i just hope Nokia stop making mobiles that do not let people down
OK After doin some serius look around.. it looks like all the freezing problem is only happening to people who hav the Nokia 6280 on 3G... Looks like it could be 3Gs firmware which is mucking up the phone... if this is the case.. is there any out there that has this phone which is not 3G flashed.. and does it work properly???? IF so i mite just get the phone flashed.. stupid 3G if its there problem stupid Nokia if it there problem :-2 ...
I had this phone 3 times an they were all faulty. fourth time lucky and i got one that wasnt. Bad luck or rubbish phone? But other than that this phone is brill!! i love it.
Sorry about my last message... The picture quality in the 6280 is much better than I thought. When I downloaded the review pictures to my computer and then compared them they looked real nice and sharp. Somehow they looked all grainy when I compared the photos online. I think I´ll get this phone as soon as it hits the stores in Finland because I hope Nokia has solved those software problems by then. The S40 OS suits me perfectly because it´s faster than the S60 and the S60 comes with all these weird and useless applications which only take space from your memory card...
nokia 6280 is a series 40 phone.
series 40 is NOT symbian
so nokia 6280 is not a symbian phone
you can check www.nokia.com they say it as well.
Heyy ppl suggest which ones better 6280 or 6270.. if we dont consider the 3G option...
No. Series 40 is not made by Symbian, but by Nokia. You cannot install software like in Series 60 which is made by Symbian. In Series 40 You can only install Java applications like in 6230 for example.
Solos..... Are you ****** or what????.. course nokia 6280 has symbian.. it has symbian 40... it is a great great phone obviously... In relation to the problemes, wait simply.. hasta
In response to huel.
Yes the Nokia 6280 does have symbian version for Operating System.
I think that this phone is a really googd phone
