Spoke with Nokia today. It seems the reason why its not out yet and only Three have them for upgrades is, they made a deal with Nokia for first release of the phone. Meaning no one else are allowed to sell them, including licensed Nokia shops, in till the agreed first release period is up. This should be at the end of January.
Just companies making the most money as possible!
anyone here gets the nokia 6280 in silver color?seems like only black at the market^^
i miss the silver one...
I even rang Orange direct and they say they aint got a clue when its coming out.
If it came out i would of got this even though i think it looked big on the demos.
But demos cant always do a phone justice, which i realised over the years.
Ive waited over christmas not getting a phone beacuse this was supposed to be realesed but finally, i gave up today and like i said ordered the 6230i on Orange.
I've been waiting for ages as well for this to come out on Orange. It says coming soon on their website and my contract has expired so as soon as it is released I will get 1. I don't understand why it keeps getting delayed though. I was practically guaranteed that it would be out before Xmas and they let me down. If it isn't out before February I don't think I will wait for it.
I was looking for a new contract and phone on Orange UK and over last few months ive been checking whats available. I prefer Nokias for their Easy User Interface. Got a 6230.
Was Nearly Tempted on Sony K750i. But i cant get used to their interface. (had a t68i ages ago.)plus all the other makes.
No other interface is as good as Nokia IMO.
Really was looking forward to getting this phone, Been Checking up on it for ages.
However went around all phone shops yesterday and no one could tell me when coming out. all said MAYBE end of month, phones4u even said MAYBE feb. All which are too late for me!
3 have it on upgrade for existing Customers. My uncle was due an upgrade so got him to ring them. I dont like 3 though.
Saw Demo in CarPhoneWarehouse and it IS Chunkier than i expected considering the Size Spec comparable to the 6230. Looked Very Big when Slide Open. Wasnt Impressed to Be honest. Compared to The size of the Samsung Sliders.
Checked 6680 and N70, Keypads are terrible on them. TOO cramped, Easy to hit wrong Keys while texting or Calling. Plus they are Big.
In the End Ordered 6230i.
sydney and malaysia stil unavailable =( but i wil wait..although i wait for 6 months already. now im using n6230 too, the only phone can replace 6230 is only 6280.
there are lot of advantages and disadvantages of tis phone, but u cant expect a phone can be so powerful and summore small and compact.
nokia is a brand which is making a lot of so-called "DATABASE PHONE", most of the business-man prefer to use nokia more than other brand. for me, i think it is cheap to repair and the quality is not bad although now stil ranking the first in the world.
alrite, 6280 can be a better fon.. please post some comparable opinion for this fon.
all the best GSMarena.com
dont buy a 6111 or n70, majority of these handsets have been returned in the first few days of being sold, give nokia a little while to sort the problems out with them
The Nokia 6280 is available in the UK, but the three network have bought all of the UK stock and are only using it for existing customer upgrades. It will be available for all shortly.
I have just received this phone 6280 this week as an upgrade on 3uk. Its pretty good, features are plentyful. The sound via headphones is excellent. I have a question for anyone else who has this phone, is the closed slide meant to have a little play(movement), mine has and i'm worried its faulty??? any healp appreciated.
for a guy who ask whether there is a cheaper price for this phone, here in my country, the price is 230 pounds and it will be shipped at the end of this month, hopefully.
I went to the local 3 shop today her in Denmark and the salesman showed me a dummy model of the Nokia 6280. I wasn’t planning on getting a new phone just now, but after reading about it, I did end up preordering one. 2-3 weeks and it’s out in Denmark. Price £185, after the 6 month binding period ends.
i really want this mobile it has fab features and all but if it doesn't come out soon im gonna go with the moto v3i cos that is damn sexy and has good camer/video and itunes man!
when does this nokia come out in the uk please!
I've been waiting for this phone to replace my 6230. I played on 1 in a 3 shop in London and it took me about a minute to fall in love with it. As soon as it's released on Orange I'll be the first one in the shop and get it!
For years I have always said nokia make the best mobile phones. Over the last couple of years they have been a bit behind and i was. I was all but changed to Motorola lover with the sexy V3 and the Peble. But then i was luckly enough to use the Nokia 6280. Someone i know has got one on 3 as an upgrade which is the only way to get one at the moment. It has to be the best phone i have ever seen and used. Everything is perfect not to big, but then not to small, it is sleek and sexy. The photo quality and video is the best i have seen on a mobile and the screen is so bright a clear. All i can say is wait buy one and love it. I will not rest till i get one.
This is a very nice phone. I went into the 3 shop in Kensington, London here in chilly England. [+] Positives: Looks and feels FAR nicer than you can tell from the pictures online. Silky smooth slide mechanism. (Think D500, but nicer). Lovely folded shape, not visible from pictures. D-Pad large and much easier to use than on N70 etc. Wonderful bright large screen. Multi-day alarms (finally!). Very refined interface, far more logical and 'fun' than N70. This really is the ultimate social phone. [-] Negatives: Camera not protected by slider and easy to cover with fingers. That said, camera is designed (like SE K750) to be operated with phone at a 90 degree angle. Summary: Probably the nicest mobile phone ever introduced so far. And when you hold one, you will probably agree. Bodes well for the N80! All said, I am in business, and plan to buy an SE P990, but would love the 6280 just because it's so sweet. OK, back to work.
Wait for 2 or 3 weeks more ??? is it worth it ??? this phone's battery won't last more than 2 days ! I've been waiting for 7-8 months and i'm glad i changed my mind cause this phone bettery life is too short and trust me.. sound quality ain't as good as n6230i's one.. I've heard n6111 playing mp3 and sound quality its kinda fake.. so I dont expect n6280 will sound any better.. You want real good sound quality ? get a nokia with stereo speakers !!! Nokia 6233 is the best !!! stereo speakers and long lasting battery !!!
The Nokia 6280 will be out here in Portugal nest week. I confirmed this with two sources (PhoneHouse and Ensitel). Be patient because its arriving the time to catch one. Hehehe!
