this pho9ne is top tier
spec wise it could have obliterated alot of phones
it even has the video resolution of VGA which could stand for
"video great and acceptable"
bt the thing is
it also holds the guiness book of world records for "the BUGGIEST PHONE in the world"!!!
Hey thanx guys for all your opinions!!!
I am going to buy this fone!!
Nokia will always be the best.
I just found that my firmware is 3.70. I can access to my E-Mail folder but others phone with firmware 3.65 able to access to the E-mail folder.
well ive gt the 6280 and more thyen happy with it touch wood no problems yet but at this stage its the best nokia ive had .
and as for the battery life mine seems too last 4 ages
my old nokia the 3230 does not even come clse too the 6280
CASMAT, Did you notice the phone more slow with the 2 gigas memory?
I will buy the 1 giga memory and if with 2 gigas there isn´t slow with the 1 giga will musn´t be any problem...
i have this phone and w810i, i found 6280 is a better phone than w810i and other phones i used before.
The only problem is its photo quality is really unacceptable esp. when compare with w810i.
Its video quality is very good but it take lots of memory. However, this is not really a matter for me as i got a 2G memory card.
It is a really nice phone, if it is not locked by three (Australia) >.<
ice, i got the 512mb card in my phone and found it works well , not noticed its being slow.
...hey, guys read marco's post opinion!!..thats the same problem i encounted to my 6280....

ei guys thanks for the reply. its a very good phone. great features.! i tried to put some mp3 and it works well . nice phone indeed.
i wanna ask if i put a 512mb mini sd, does my phone will become slower?
It's a relief to know I'm not going mad, I have been talking to Vodafone for weeks about the problems with my 6280 and because I'm outside of my 14days since receiving the phone, they won't even let me have it replaced for a different model - so many minus points to this phone I just don't want it no more.
Like most people on here, the phone resets itself ALOT when I use music player but also sometimes when I'm browsing thru contacts/messages. The on board memory is so small, I cannot receive one mp3 track by bluetooth even thou I've got nothing else stored there apart from rubbish Voda stuff that I don't want and can't even delete. And yes, the battery life is also poor, I have to charge it every 2nd day and that's only if I don't talk to anyone (standby use only)!
And the slide when closed is a bit shaky too. After years of loyal Nokia purchases, I think next time I'll look to other manufacturers and steer clear. The 6280 is also rather a bulky phone considering the day and age we are in!
Hi Just got this phone and think it's brilliant but i have heard a lot about this phone having problems and it breaking. Is there anything in particular that can cause the 6280 to have problems?
Purchased phone in South Africa 2 days ago. Price very steep at R3500. Very disappointed with slide - very shaky when closed. Sound not as loud/good as N70. Some functions like calculator are too deep in menu
Nokia 6280 has a great design, good camera... but thats all there is to it. The phone is a bug-fiesta! For example the Bluetooth ceases to function after a while, confirmed by some owners, Shifting profiles can cause the phone to crash, The media player can get stuck in loops. Pretty much anything you do can make it crash or hang - That was some examples. Other negative stuff is: The standby time is to short, The T9 function on this one is nothing for Nokia to be proud of, they shouldn't be proud of this phone at all, the headset is feels like something you bought on a Indian market for $2. THIS PHONE IS A DISASTER, IF YOU GET IT YOU WILL NOTICE AFTER SOME TIME! BUY ANOTHER PHONE! THIS IS A WARNING!
For ice , your memory card will show up on your computer as a removable disk , you can move your music and themes , photo,s to it , place your card back into your phone and then go to your memory card , you can then use you theme, photo,s . as for the music , you go to your music player and do a search , it will find the music on the memory card. hope that helps you .
ei guys this phone is very good!
i just wanna ask some questions.
1. how can i install theme? i mean, if i put a theme in my memory card using my card reader, does my phone detect the theme and i can apply it?
2. if i transfer songs from my pc to my nokia 6280 using card reader, does the songs automatically detected by the music player?
ive been using bluetooth dongle for my recent phone and its my first time to use a card reader in this phone thats why im asking these questions. pls help. because they said that its better to transfer files using card reader,thanks.
hi, i got this phone today, i started downloading some mp3 and mp4 media from my PC into it when During the file transfer the connection via Bluetooth broke and the phone switched itself off.
When attempting to switch the phone back on, power comes on for few seconds and the screen immediately fades away, switching the phone off.
I was suspecting that the problem might be with the phone memory being full and therefore the same might be low to "reboot" the software to start up the phone.
In this respect I have removed the memory card (mini sd 64mb) and the SIM card to free some memory and tried to switch the phone back on.
It worked in such a way that now the phone is on and displays the message "Start up phone without SIM card?” giving you two (2) options:
When "Accept" is pressed, phone screen fades away and repeats the same few times before switches itself off.
When "Reject" is pressed, phone goes off immediately.
Would you be so kind to advise what if anything can be done to bring the phone back to the normal operation? Any codes and stuff available? Pls?
Any assistance given will be much appreciated. I didnt even use the phone for 1 hour and its broken? hope not, plz help
I used to own 6630 before this 6280. When compared this phone is very poorly designed. Yes, 6630 is heavier and bigger and 6280 is easier on the eyes. But that's about it...I am very upset and disappointed with 6280. The catalogue of complaints are so long...
1. Batt life too short
2. Cannot read data saved from 6630 (contacts,etc)
3. Need both hands to operate the camera
4. Mini SD is too small in memory size
5. Poor hands free kit design
6. Cannot play as many file formats as 6630
7. Copying files thru PC Suite is not an easy as 6630
8. Cannot use the My Home City Function unlike 6630
9. Upon deleting image,it goes back to the top rather than moving to the next image
10. Plus many more
