Hi im allen and i live in gladstone australia the nokia 6280 is sooo crap ive had 3 nokia phone and they have all broken. I only had the 6280 for a month and i paid $600 for it and in the first month it broke, it kept turning off and vibrating. Dont bye one dont buy nokia.
Well the fact that I am on my second 6280 after having sent my first one back for repair twice about tells the story. Endless problems such as switching off mid conversation, sending messages 20 times for no reason, barring me from using it every other day and the list goes on.
I was assured it was simply a one off bad phone and it was replaced. I have since spoken to other people who have experienced the same continuous problems.
I have also been told by two phone shops that it is a terrible phone that has endless faults that is being taken out of production.
Bottom line. . . don't buy this phone!!!
Other than that its pretty neat.
I've had this phone for about 7 months now, the SMS limit appears to be set by the amount of free internal phone memory. I've deleted or moved most of the stuff on the internal memory to memory card. My SMS inbox can hold about 2050 messages. More than enough i think you'll find ;-)
Love the Three UK Network. Best Mobile Network ever by a mile
hey you british!why don't u buy dis fone 4rm 3 network ,they provide u da best deal in da whole world
i've had this phone for quite sometime now and sometimes when my friends send me ringtones it tells me file corrupted and all that why does it say that cuz this is getting frustrating im thinking of getting the nokia n80 if this keeps up can someone tell me why this is happening?
Hi guys, can any body tell me the maximum memory storage that I can use in this 6280? 2GB or 1GB? thank you!
Question....My version of my N6280 is v03.70. How do I upgrade to v03.81? My Nokia Suite is version 3.81 but my phone still shows v3.70 Help!!!!!
I have been reading about various opinions and comparisons. I must say that this is the best Nokia phone available in the market. It has its +ves and -ves, but overall it is rated above all other nokia phonesas it has all the functions you need in a cell phone.
Size and construction is solid, compact and proportionate. Not big or fat or heavy like N series. Looks beautiful.
Keypad and D pad very soft and easy to use.
Screen quality high but not among the best.
Camera good but unlike N series.
Music player good but not like Walkman series.
Only Nokia model to display full screen caller id picture.(correct me if I am wrong)
Battery time is good but not like SE phones.
SMS capacity is only 200, its not good.
Web browsing average.
Has radio also.
Video is good than 3gp videos.
Games and applications are easy to download unlike samsung.
So all in all there might be other phones better than this, but in Nokias, it is the best looking and high performance mobile phone.
I have a 6280 phone i have had no issues with software, i am very impressed with this phone all the features work really well, it is the best phone currently on the market, until you damage it and you try to get a replacement on your insurance. Everyone seems to be waiting for stock to arrive.
If you have one be carefull with it as they seem fragile, some one needs to make a protective case for it.
Greetings to all. my younger brother bought a nokia 6280 a few days back. can anyone plz tell me how take picture or video with the front camera if possible? also if i transfer images from another mobile using bluetooth to the 6280 were r they stored? r they automatically saved in the mobile? thanks.
hey.. i'm from Romania.. here, they retreat this phone from all Mobile Shops .. they said that Nokia has very big problems with this phone's soft and they aren't going to produit any more 6280.. they said that soon will appear a new phone of this kind from nokia replacing this model
Hi Victor, dont go for it. it has too many software problems, go the n-series route. i sold my second 1, even after the latest software upgrade it hassled my life.
HI I just got dis fone but not happy it only come with 64mb card. I asked the salesman to if I could swap 64mb for 512mb or 1gb but he sed no.
I've had this phone six months now its a quite good i like the camera and video quality, the only fault i find with it is the battery life is extremely poor and this prevents me using all the features. Also a 2GB sd card is compatible with the phone.
I am seriosly considering getting me the nokia 6280. I think it is a cool phone. The one thing that I am confused about is when you read the user opinions all you hear is how bad the phone is and yet it still receives a above 8.0 rating on Design, Features and Performance so I would like to year from people that like the phone and what they enjoy about it.
Hi,i'm goin to buy this nokia 6280 in two more days. i really like this phone when i first saw it..but,i have heard about many problems going with it about the firmware.Can anyone please giving some advise whether i should buy this phone or not? Thanks!! ^^
hello everyone! i have this phone for a month it's great. i was wondering if anyone could tell me if an sd card 2G is working on it. thank u in advance
Hi all, this is my 2nd nokia 6280,and im having software issues again, when i get an sms it continues to vibrate til i switch da fone off,it seems to switch off whenever it feels like. i currently have the v 03.65 software, what should i do as i really like the design and features of this fone, i change mobiles all the time and this is prob my 30th fone and im finding it hard to try and find a replacement non-symbian fone. changed my first 1 for lg's choclate which was useless. the camera is fantastic jus like the other features apart from reliability. please advise.
