finally a handset uglier than the old moto d520
Phone was for wife, she liked the design, enough said. If its just about the money/value we'd be all wearing unbranded clothes :)....besides to alleviate your concern, it cost £40 on contract renewal.
Its a very subjective topic that I'm not very good at arguing about.
I used bluetooth adaptor to send song to the phone. It only allows wireless connection via infrared or bluetooth. To get photos and recordings off the phone, thats the only way. There's no cable connector available.
Another thought. You might think the phone is for right-handed people but actually, I tried using with my left hand (I was eating at the same time...wooo, how multi-skilled am I). Its not bad, you hold it like you would a pen, resting on middle finger, in between thumb and forefinger.
mr phil u like this phone becauseits a fashion phone n crap because the trade in value only about 400 in s,pore n those who brought this lipstick phone n why not buy s700i n value still very high n sony ericsson is comig up n i like the design n look at 7280 n expensive but no value
This question is for Phil or anybody else who can answer - I'd like to know how you sent the songs from iTunes to your phone, after converting it into the correct format! Thanks!
hi, got one for wife, she loved the design so thats the reason, didn't really care about the features, its all about style.
However, I've been playing with it so here's my thoughts.
Texting and dialling is slower but what did you expect? Not for speed freaks so but it lets you 'show off' the phone while you take your time texting/dialling :o).
There's an annoying inconsistency with accepting settings. Sometimes its the rotory dial 'select' button. Sometimes its the soft key.
Screen is small, could have been larger but it is crisp.
Speakerphone/ring speaker is loud.
Speakerphone/ring speaker is covered up when in the leather jacket, so you can't hear it...duh. They should have made a hole for it.
It does play MP3, but it will not allow you to set as ringtone. Pointless? possibly because it doesn't have enough memory to function as an MP3 player (52Mb). However, it allows AAC as ringtone but not the raw .aac. Its the protected version, don't know the name but what I did was convert MP3 using iTunes and then copied the .m4a (I think) file over and this can then be set as ringtone.
Battery life is rubbish. 48 hours with light use and its dead...we are on our third exchange because they (Nokia shop) say it should be longer so testing whether a dodgy phone or not...latest one is even worse so far but we have yet to perform a few more recharge cycles...and yes, I did switch off bluetooth, and light effects.
the handsets are marvellous. I liked the models
this mobile certainly looks intriguing but when the novelty of having it runs out, then I wonder if people will actually buy it...
Unknown Yeah it says mp3 ringing tones so I say that means just part of and not the whole song.
finally a goodlooking phone,with brains! ...that only finns could do!
Jezz, can you verify if it only plays, a portion of the mp3? I mean can it store a whole mp3 and tranfer to a phone like the SE K500i? I'm thinking of buying this phone and don't care about the whole mp3, just that my girlfriend wants the whole mp3 on her k500i. Thanks
Yes dimi the nokia website says that it really does play mp3 and aac.
for those who r hunger to have this phone and can't wait anymore... just get yourself a lipstick !!
for those who r hunger to have this phone pls wait 2months because my friends works in mobile firm told me the price wil drop n may have a chance to get 400 to 500 n belive it or not its up to u n for those who already brought 7280 fear is not a factor for u!
Nokia 7280 or SE S700? They are about the same price, please give some advice.
(would also consider similar models but definitely not the V3, motorola or samsung)
Had a chance to play with it.. Believe me, SMS or email is a pain.. No keypad .. U have to scroll letter by letter.. Screen sooo small .. Just a expensive toy, not a decent phone
yeah, totally agree. also people buying this phone probably has another spare phone with a keypad. I rather have somebody call my phone first and then save into memory. Saves time , saves work, cheers
Who needs buttons if all ur contacts are saved in the SIM card or phone memory?
this phone is shit firstly it takes ages 2 insert numbers secondly da screens a smal as a pinhead (so da cameras shit aswel) and thirdly al it is is a mp3 playa!
Honestly, i prefer my phone with buttons.
When i had a cold, i couldent even use my own phone because my voice-activation was redjecting me as i sounded to different.
I loooove the look but when it comes ro reliability and use, ***GO THE BUTTONS!!!***
hello-moto, why are you here? Go back to your Motorola Forum and praise those shitty phones!!!
