Nice work gwapz - I'm struggling to see how Nokia shipping dodgy, sub-standard, incomplete product is the fault of the consumer!
My main beef is the lack of FF/Rew controls on what is otherwise a great video player. Since they appear to have been delivering product without these controls for a couple of years (as I've discovered after going Nokia for the first time) and they have no intention of including these controls in the future, I'd have to disagree with your assertion. In fact their curious decision suggests completely the opposite - that they couldn't give a toss what their consumers want!
someone seems to be in a bit of a rant, but i do have to agree. i however ordered this phone today so i expect i'll be on my third handset before the month is out i'll report back on tuesday week when i should have had the phone a week.
Well there you have it, after one week of use my 6280 has died...I don't know what caused it as I treated it like it was worth a million dollors !!
The only thing I did was load a few games on to the memory card....and bang, now the screen just fizzles and reboots
When I turn the phone on it starts up normally and gets the main screen and dies straight away, does this about three or four times and then shuts off completely. I can't use it all now......
Well back to three tomorrow...."SIGH"
ok, had an incident with the phone last night.
First, the phone was half-empty so i went to recharge it. Then i opened up Videos and watched a movie that i encoded into the memory card. I then inserted the hands free set so i can watch and hear it in silence.
As soon as i plugged it in, the phone shutsdown. i thought, orite then, time to turn it back on. But it wouldnt. I tried to take out the battery and put it back in. Still, nothin powers on. So i thought, maybe, for some strange reason, the battery drained itself to zero. so i charged it overnight thinking to myself, i think i better take it in for warranty
the next morning, turned it on, still wouldnt turn on. at this point i was a bit frustrated. so i tried disassembling everything, memory card, battery.
then i reinserted the sim card, thinking for some reason, it might work... and it did
the phone worked, but the battery was still half-empty. so the phone was actually dead course i recharged it, but it wouldnt accept the currents.
any smartypants out there care to find out why that happened??
thanks for reading =)

i wanna know whether will tis hp always hang??? because Nokia phones always face tis prob, rite?? i m considering whether wanna buy tis o Sony Ericsson phones...~!!
Mate, you need to read the posts properly - we're talking about the media player, ie playing movies. I've just received this response from the Nokia Careline...
In response to your enquiry, please be advised that there is no 'forward' or
'rewind' function for viewing video clips. Kindly note that there are no plans
for a software upgrade to enable these features.
Can't make it much clearer than that.
there are forward and rewind. you don't see the buttons on the music players? READ THE MANUAL PEOPLE ITS REALLY HELPFUL( use the navigation key LEFT = rewind RIGHT = FORWARD just press it and hold it. thats its.
those complaining about the dust on the screen,
just remove the cover and clean it, depending on the use all kind of phones will get dust under the screen, that happens when you try to mess the phone alot, or get it in dirty places. just clean it and that its!. cool phone i got 6270 which its pretty much the same its rocks
that happens with ALL THE phones, you have to turn the BT to use the headset!! no other way it drains the battery, EVERYPHONE have that problem. because the phone ahve to (find) the headset first to know to which headset connect to, sorry man, ALL the brands BT works the same way because they use the same profiles.
OK this is annoying the heck out of me and no one (AND I MEAN NO ONE)can give a proper answer...
Here it goes:
RE: using a bluetooth headset and a mobile phone...
Once the two are paired and the device is saved in your phone, to use the BT headset in the future, do u need to turn the phone's BT power ON every time u plan on using the headset OR, would the turning ON of the BT headset (e.g. by opening the boom gate), even when the mobile's BT power is off, automatically activate a connection (assuming connect w/out permission function is activated on phone).
Put simply, DO I NEED TO TURN THE PHONE'S BT POWER ON EVERY TIME I WANT TO USE THE HEADSET (as this drains the battery big time b/c the phone's BT is on all day so that if i recieve a call i can just open the headset and becoiem connected to the device)??? Does it depend on the phone? headset? compatibility???
PLEASE PLEASE SOMEONE GIVE ME A DECISIVE ANSWER...I WOULD DEARLY APPRECIATE IT
how do u take the front cover off the phone, i can do it?
please help dose anyone know, without me acidently breaking it
Overall this is an excellent phone !
However i do have a couple of problems with it!
Firstly the battery life is about the worst I have ever experienced. Secondly is there any way of recording your own voice tags ? The enhanced voice tags are CRAP ! Also I am unable to use the redial function on my Jabra headset with this phone.
Looks like several people are finding the same problem with regard to no FF/Rew. I'm amazed that one or two seem to shrug this off as no big deal. It's a joke! It's 2006 and this is a brand new phone - they've been slagged off for two years on other models for not including FF/Rew capabilities.
To me it makes it unusable... imagine you're watching a move, you're an hour into it and you have to turn it off for any reason. The only way to pick it up again is to sit through the first hour and wait till it gets to where you left off. Come on! That's pathetic.
Since the Three (Hutchison) network uses video playing as a selling point and includes a screenshot in it's glossy that shows a media player with full controls, I think I'll go them for misrepresenting their product.
I've spoken to a number of Orange stores, and it should be available from them by the end of the month...Grrr. Orange Email Support:
"I am delighted to confirm that the Nokia 6280 is being reviewed by Orange and the release date is sometime in February, although may I advise that this is subject to change. This is only because the reviewed handsets go through a rigorous testing stage."
It's not going to arrive this week - that's confirmed by all three Orange stores I've visited in the U.K but they seem hopeful it will arrive soon. One guy in the Vodafone store said it would be end of the month for them.
For some stupid reason in gallery i put a password on the memory card but when you try accessing the memory card, it doesn't ask for a password, please help
I have heard that Nokia are having big software problems with the phone and the end of Feb release date for all other English networks I was given may well be a little further in the future. (this was info from Vodafone, so may just be them).
hi guys, any ideas why i'm not getting delivery reports? I've turned it on for delivery reports but they'te not happening any ideas?? please
Got a 6280 on 3 and very impressed only probs are no rw/ff in media player and dust getting under the screen. However was able to sort the dust prob by removing front cover and cleaning it, to do this u have to slide the phone open and slowly apply presssure to the two clips at the top, there are also two clips at the bottom. WARNING: Be very careful if u attempt this, cover is delicate and will break if forced too hard!!!
