I work for vodafone and we are getting a huge amount of these handsets returned regarding handset software crashing and the slide mechanism breaking.......avoid at ll cost
my 6280 keep crashing when i switch profile, especially back to general mode!! and the crash also seem to drain the battery. Any idae why this happens?? New firmware required? where do i download them from? and how to load it onto the phone?
i have been putting full movies on it...and i cant seem to forward skip or rewind them..just pause..
can anyone help????????? paul
I too have a problem with files on the memory card, except with mine its nearly all of them, excluding 2 themes, and anything you add yourself? Is yours the same? It happens on the PC when you put the card in there too, I thought maybe my card was corrupt but if I'm not the only one effected I don't know.
Maybe someone could copy everything then uplad it to rapidshare or megaupload
Hi I password protected my 512 memory card and now the phone doesn't detect it. even my card reader can't detect the card. anyone can help? also I can't use voice dial when i try to use it the phone restarts, I know it should be a firmwave problem but my quastion is can I update my 6280's firmwave my self?
Thanks a lot
At first i absolutely loved this phone. I used to have the Samsung D500 and this nokia is superior. But now four months down the line i have no signal (its been 2 weeks now) so cannot use my contract which i am paying for. 3 do not want to know and blame it on the actual phone not the network. Going to the link tomorrow to hopefully resolve my problems. I'm tearing my hair out with it, it's a phone which you cannot ring off or text or recieve things. WHAT IS THE SENSE IN THAT?
great phone easy to use
i have had a samsung e720 nice phone but no wy to install apps (pointless)
C975 (one week button falls off two months charger button falls off) three month phone failure avoid this c975 at all costs.
nokia 6280 a pleasure o come back to nokia a complete pleasure only drawback the phone is not symbian
Dargo u couldnt give my your regestery details for imtoo 3gp converter..?
save me paying for it..lol
Very good model but GPRS does not show any picturs in the web pages as it showing in K700i, N70, Nokia 6600.... Hence any one wanted to buy the above product think twice I lost almost 5 thousand for exchanging New 6280 to N70. I contacted Nokia care centre 5 times , they replaced with new hand set but basic problem still there.
people, talking about the crashes of 6280, I got it and after 1 day (full battery) I was using the musicplayer and the phone crashed. V3.65, so for thoso who were thinking that V3.65 will fix the problem.....WRONG!!!!
Dragos, 2 programs for transforming full movies?? No, I donīt think so. I only use the "ImToo3gp converter" and if i put in the bitrate 300 or 400 the complete film is about 200 megas.
I havenīt try it a complete film cause i still donīt have a memory larger than the default of 64 mbs. But I will buy as soon as i found one of 1 giga for around 35 euros.
Leewix , man.... i think we must use 2 programs for transforming full movies ...
One to split the video file (split it in files about 20 minutes , transform them in .mp4, and put them all in the same folder ....and then select "open in sequence" ...and that should do ..)
And yeah ... i was curious if the phone freezes al larger files ..and mine does :(
The memory card was hot , after i`ve tryied this ..so i suppose if u got a good quality memory card .. it should work :)
Dragos, is really true than when you see a fil on the 6280 the phone "read" just about 40 minutes of it , and then freezes??
I canīt believe it!! Bad news for me is thatīs true... I want to see complete movies!!
I already put short videoclips and all is ok.
guys, i just bought the 6280 yesterday. Inside the sd card there is mp4 files but I cant open it. what should i do? thanks
Potential 6280 user,
Don't bother what others said about this 6280 negatively. Even the best phone in the world also people would have bad comments.
Personally I changed phone very often and normally buy new ones when it launched. BTW, I only used Nokia and Sonyericsson Phones. Based on the latest 3G phones I had used was N70, N80, W900, 6280, etc.
N70 was slow (need to be patient) and screen are 262K but not bright and sharp enough. Considered an old 3G model as more than 6mths on the market so far...
N80 with wifi, camera not bad but video quality disappointing even N70 video does better. Battery performance not good...
W900 was too big in size but the photos and video turned out quite good with auto focus.
Battery flat very fast due to its big QVGA screen. Furthermore sms, need to twist, turn and open before u can compose sms...
6280 currently using which I bought back after selling away my n70, n80 & w900.
The screen is big and sharp (QVGA), photos very good and video (VGA) superior quality.
Front camera cannot take your own pic only use for 3G but not important as even n70, n80 & w900 front camera only basic camera quality. Also 6280 using OS and not symbian system, so the phone quite fast response and hardly hanged. Finally, you can buy almost 2 units of 6280 if you buy N80 but if you don't need the wifi, forget about n80.
Conclusion: 6280 is a simple versatile 3G phone. Good camera quality and superb video.
Very nice big QVGA screen, easy to use...
