for the previous posts...
i can tell why you're having a hard time connecting a USB cable, because it's located at the bottom of the phone and not at the back as you were saying...
and for the other guy, i mean Man, don't you read your manual that the front camera of the 6280 is exclusive only for video calls..
I can't believe people buy a phone not knowing what their buying, then just post a comment on how silly their phone was.
Before you buy a new phone, make sure that it has every features you wanted..
hi i bought the nokia 6280 2day and am almost dead from trying to switch the camera to the front plz someone HELP ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my fone doesnt work well either, picture texts dont work and everything is in UK settings, anyone else havigns trouble with that and i got a usb wire with the fone but it doesn't fit on the bak of the phone
I've had my 6280 not 6 months yet and I've already accumulated a lot of problems. It randomly turns itself off and back on again, more so when I receive messages or playing music. It has crashed my laptop several times when I've gone to connect them via USB. I tried connecting my sisters phone as hers is the same and it worked absolutely fine, strange~ Occasionally when I pick up the phone it will unlock and lock the key pad several times, completely baffled me. Putting the problems aside, I do really like this phone. I just got to find time to get it repaired~ Anybody else having similar problems?
yeah the battery life on mine is not that great. but overall i really like the phone.
The battery life sux so does the voice dialling. We upgraded to this phone (2 Handsets) because the battery life of our previous (2 handsets) was getting bad after about 1 1/2 years of use. However to our surprise the new battery of this phone is still not as long lasting as the used battery of our 6230's.
I believe that Nokia has fooled us into believing that 6280 has voice dialling, because unlike the 6230's where you could record the contacts name in your own voice, the 6280 actually has built in computerised voice for the contacts. Well, you ask for Mr. A and it would dial Mr. K, its pathetic
i have had the phonr for one year. the battery goes down very quickly and most days i have no life in it by the evening
Having the mobile a couple of months.I am shown very low memory in the fone.I wanna upgrade my fone to the latest firmware.Where could I get dat?Help me out guys.
it may not have the best camera for a phone but hey, who needs a camera for a phone when you got a Cannon Ixus 60 as a standard digicam...
it's a good phone... I stay away from N-series because in my opinion Series-40 phones are more robust and stable than Series-60 phones of Nokia...
It's not buggy and until now, i haven't experienced any hang-ups with this phone...
expecially if you got the new firmware (v 5.92)
this is the best phone i ever used.vedio clarity at its best .THANK U NOKIA>................................................................................
with the 5.92 fw, 6280 works better than before (with 3.06)?or the problems listed below goes on with it too?
nokia6280 ls the phone i have ever saw but the photo quality is not that good when compare with video . really video quality is better compared with nokia N70.out speker is very low compare with normal phone.
To JB: As far as I know, all Nokia handsets have the standard security code of 12345. It's always a 5 digit code. I hope I could help you with this info. Tnx.
the code is 12345.
i'm looking for a website too...does anyone know?thx
the black 6280 is something to die for! though with the issues I've been hearing the 6288 is a great option though I'm inlove with the black 6280!!! T_T help!!!!!!!!
Bought this phone yesterday! I think this is pretty good, as the functions and performance are very satisfactory. For a 3G phone, i wud definitely recommend this phone to anyone. I was a nokia user b4 swithching to Sony Ericsson and then back to Nokia.
Nokia is simply unbeatable, they are still the best overall!
I have 6280 since may 2006. It is good mobile, if you just need phone. I can give 8 out of 10 for this phone and it fulfill my expectation. There are problems though, and many firmware versions with different type of bugs in, and you will have to select the one that is close to your expectation, depending of the functions most often plan to use...
The 64MB card is so small that every time I go anywhere, I need to delete MP3's to free space for picturs or video. In this 64M card good-quality video (good for this phone) is round 3 minutes. And if you fill it - there will be no pictures...so in this way any owner will meet the challenge of buying bigger memory card. It appears, that 6280 is less compatable than the market offer. So when you buy card, try to take some pictures, check if the pictures are whole(with some memory cards, 6280 corrupt pictures), then try some video, even voice recording, and if you succeed with all, only then buy the card. There are several firmware to fix some, but not to take away the memory problems.
The radio is very good if you are near to the station transmiter, otherwise you will have to listen to it mono. The fact that the antenna is the cable of the headset is very bad and many times you will have to keep the cable with hands to have stereo.
There are several bugs with themes, but the themes support is otherwise good, and the 6280 is looking very good with different themes.
The 6280 has a problems with humidity, and I've been several times in situation to restart the phone more than one time to be able to make a call.
That's the problems I have crossed. But I will keep with this phone for at least one year, because the N seria is not the one that I need, because of the price and the symbian, but the successors like 6288 or others are not big step, enough to make me switch.
