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.
6270: no 3G,stereo, stronger than 6280, speakers
6280:3G,better video recodings than 6270
excellent handset, great screen quality,great camera,video not so hot but 3g tv playback is outstanding,good memory and functionality,odd that previous reviewer had so many problems as i have had none, the only drawback is that with the smallest of knocks the back tends to fall off
Could someone please tell me if you can download the info on the Sim card to the phone. I dont really fancy typing in all my contacts again.
1GB memory card works fine. security code might be 12345. My only gripe is in-use battery life.
Does anyone know what the security code is for the 6280? I have tried all the normal ones like 0000 1234

i've been using this phone for about 4months...and im happy with it. the only thing that i dont really want with my phone is PHONE RESTRICTION!,but when i reset it, it comes back to the original setting with i can use it., that flash is not that good, and i cant use the front camera like n70 does!hmp!, the battery doesn't last like other phone.,but there more a lot advantage with this phone...it never hangs, texting is very easy in other words...it is very user friendly...:), the cam is very good specially you are outdoor...it capture pics very good...(i wish it sah autofocus to rwally sharpen the image!sigh!),thats all!
nokia is rubbish, after update the new FW 5.92,the handset can not be activated mp3 player and game together, nokia say that can not be back to pervious FW3.81, strongly complaint nokia without pior notice the user
will miss this function before update the FW
I've been using the handset for eight months. It is a very nice handset with nice design and an easy layout. Battery life is good (if not in a 3G area, switch to 2G to reserve life). The slide can seem a bit loose but after constant usage with care it as retained. The one problem I can find is that when playing multimedia (videos, mp3, games) the handset may suddenly stop and reset itself. I doesn't happen often and is easily bearable.
My Nokia 6280 is the worst Nokia phone I've ever had Its been back 3 times had 3 different Nokia batteries,and still only has a stand by time of 30 hours, am sure if I used it more it would be permanently on charge
I've got two 6280's one for own use and one for work. so you could say that it has my vote!! My only comment would be the software glitch in both of them. It sometimes shuts down mid-way through a track or a game. Also once the battery is nearing the end of it's life, the phone does some wierd stuff like shows empty charge and then full and goes dead mad-way through a call. I've just ordered the 6288 as a new replacement so i'm hoping that this will now be sorted. in General a damn good phone though with many features...
I recommend you to download a software called ''MobiMB''on your computer,connect the usb to your desktop through default mode,and try to search into your phone till you found a file and full of cropped pictures,icons in it..delete all of them,and that should free about 2~3mb of memory.And next time when u changed a theme,properly go back>back>back and back to the active standby,dont quickly quit with the lower right key.
