Faulty and when i got a replacement from the shop that is even worse. Battery last less than a day even with out use. This morning it was sat on the desk and when i picked it up to text it was red hot and the battery had almost drained.
Build quality is poor, nokia support even worse and manual doesn't explain any thing just what buttons to press to turn things on and off nothing to explain what the function does.
Will have to try get another one when i go back to the shop and hope that isn't faulty which seems unlikely.
Hey. Im interested in purchasing this phone from 3 Australia and am wondering whether
1. The phone has a slow processor (like the Nokia N70) and
2. How many sms messages can this phone store?
Gday, im on the 3 network in Australia and have had the nokia 6280 for a week now.
The only problem i have encountered is the dust on the inside of my front screen and yes the back is rather hard to remove, just persist and be gentle. I would not recommend taking the front cover off though, generally most phones have 'one-time' seals built in so an authorized repairer will know if you have attempted to open the phone yourself, THIS MOST OFTEN VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY.
Thankfully mine is not resetting itself like some of you unlucky people have experienced. How do i check the firmware software version on this phone to see if it differs from the rest of you?
The battery life SO FAR has been much better than my SE z800. Its been on full for 24 hours now and thats with writing about 5 messages, making/receiving 4 phone calls, viewing various videos i have recorded today and general phone browsing.
I contacted nokia about the correct charging procedure and they wrote back "In response to your enquiry, we strongly suggest the first charging of a BP-6M battery with the AC-4 charger for about 1 hour and 45 minutes while the phone is in the standby mode." They manual further writes that maximum battery performance is only acheived after 2 or 3 full charges and discharges. I have so far follwed the above procedure three times as recommended in the manual. Standby mode is when the phone is first turned on without any applications running.
Also in regards to the carry cases that are advertised by 3 in Australia, they use a fairly strong magnet to make the case stay shut.
I dont know for certain, but i beleive that the magnet is too strong. When i get a phone call, sometimes as i take the phone out of the case, the call is ended and does not even register as a missed call on my phone, Its very worrying. My SE z800's front screen would turn itself off sometimes when i removed it from the case. Personally i would stay away from these magnetically sealed carry cases, however i am finding it hard to find another case that fits the 6280, sigh... Anyone have any suggestions of where to find a cheap non-magnetic leather case?
The only other problem is that i takes about 1-2 minutes to retrieve my emails. It took
at maximum 20 seconds on my SE z800, i doubt this is a network problem so i will be emailing nokia about it.
Otherwise this is the best phone i have ever had, the screen is great, the 2mp camera is great (though it screams out for some sort of auto focus software) and slide phones always look so cool dont they ;-)...
Craig - read this page! There is plenty of discussion and even a quote directly from Nokia "Customer Care" (that's an oxymoron I think!) that says they do not have FF/Rew and no plans to fix it.
This phone seems to be very cool with the quality camera and all, but I can´t find any good reviews of it except for the one at www.mobile-review.com. When is this site going to make a decent review? My current phone is the nokia 7610 and i want to know if it´s really worth changing it to this...
it has no games because (three)wants you to download it from theire f wap!!!!its great phone and have good qaulity pictuers and i used computer wallpapers on its screen
Looks as though the "3" network as got the first batch of these 6280s an peoples having trouble with them so Nokia as realised an trying to repair it software before the other networks can release this phone i went into my Vodafone shop an the lady says it should be out on the 1st March,go to www.mobile review.com to read what they say about the phone before you buy it
1) you cant take pics with the front camera
2) you use the program thatr was included ULEAD video toolbox to encode avi to 3gp
make sure you change the sounds to AAC because AMR sounds terrible, but by doing that, the size of the file will be pretty big
also, dont expect good quality when encoding
Help if anyone can please!
1.) How do I take pictures with the small FRONT camera? (Used for video calling)
2.) Can I encode .avi movie files to .3gp (if that is what the phone accepts)???
Does anybody know if the 6280 has large font capabilities in texting and address book? and if so how large? thanks for the help.
isn't this a midrange phone? well nokia high end phones are the S60 series the s40 are most of them midrange
Just got the phone and its great, but does anyone seem to have a problem with the card reader, as its not recognising the one bundled with it??
i brought this fone about 4 days ago. im tryin to find out how to take off the front cover since i brought it. I jus dont wanna break the fone so i need Help. i havnt had any problems with this phone so far.
Can someone help.
has anyone used program such as e-MSN on their fone and does 3 charge you for using a program that uses WAP access?
It seems that the problems you talk about guy are the same that on my 6230. Ill say nokia should chek a little more their S60...
Has anyone bought a 6280 sins more than 1 week and didnt get any problems ??
