I got a prepaid 6280 nokia on optus 3g ,i live in the country and swicthed from cdma.the only prob is my son lost my 3g sim that came with the phone, so optus told me to just buy another one,the only thing is you can't buy 3g sim cards on prepaid yet ,i need the coverage as it is a work phone and with a normal sim card in it my signal is poor.If anyone can help please email me at email@example.com it will be worth your while thanks
Yes the battery life is not good. If you use it in some random mode. You will must lose your battery. I used this phone since 2 years. After one year i had to change the battery. But the screen is just like the new one. It's still great. And the photo taken by it can be compared to any nokia 2 mp camera phone. It has no problem. Oh, the slider jammed? Clean the metal stick of the back side of the slider. It'll be ok. Not so bad that some one expressed. It has one problem that i think that it has on symbian os system. Good luck everyone. Use with care be happy. Bye bye
When I bought this phone it worked really well.The Camera is very excellent and when pics are printed its still good quality. Only problem was a scratchy sound on the erarpiece sometimes when I makde a call or received a call.I have it now for 14 months and the thing will not even switch on.First is starte to swtich of by itself. The the slider started to jam. Then the screen backlight never came on. Then the screen got inverted and it looked as if I was looking in a mirror as everything was upside down. Now it will not come on at all. I would say stay away from this phone. Oh and the battery life just got worse after a few months. I had to charge it everyday. I had a SONY ERRICSON K700i that I used for 2 years and had no issues with. Infact all my SONY ERRICSONS I had and have work well. I am going back to SONY ERRICSON. Bottom line its that THIS PHONE IS TROUBLESOME AFTER A FEW MONTHS and afte the warranty it over it DIES COMPLETELY.
Very bad phone. Loosing network, some messages like "sim card registration failed", changed hybrid... what can I say? Bad reputation for Nokia...
there is nothing to do about the backlight problem. For the camera problem go to camera settings and enter to image preview. Set that manually to your choice. It will be ok. Good luck.
press the upper right button & hold to use the voice dial. Good luck.
how I can change the time of my message light.its so short I cant even read my message??where shoul I go to change it?pls,explain me step by step.

This was my worst fone ever.. I was so in love wit this phone when suddenly the keypad button stopped wrking.. i paid like 40 bucks and gt it fixed.. then abt 2 wks later it stopped wrking again.. Was so pissed.. then finally the worst problem came.. The camera spoilt.. Each time i on my camera, the whole phone shuts off.. A few of my frens oso had prob wit this fone.. Trust me, dun bother wit this junk.. Get a betta fone.. Even though it will wrk perfectly well iniially, as time passes problems arise..
it wont support .sis as it is not symbian ... get the e65 if you want a .sis compatible
Really a great fone,
But problem is that, it does'nt support .sis files.
in the v6.43 firmware, does it normal that the 3D rally game is gone ??
its a great phone but i would like to ask what is the biggest or limit to a memory card i can replace the 64mb card i have at the moment? same with a 6680, what's the bggest or limit to a memory card i can replace the 64mb card i have at the moment?
The front can is working only with 3G video calls. Itz really cool.
Can anyone guide me if i can install any additional softwares like the dictionary and the call recorder , etc . on this fone , just as you can install it these softwares on Nokia N70... i an at present using Nokia 7610 and wanna switch to Nika 6280 but this software installation is the only reason why i am not doing so ... Otherwise , all in all , a very stylish and sleek fone to have .. :)
