Good to see someone agrees with me. I don't like texting, I'd prefer to talk to someone on the phone and catch up with them. Saying 'LOL' in a text is the lamest thing I have ever seen in my life, I'd rather hear someone laugh than to see an abreviation of laughter... I can see texters at parties 5 years down the track saying "OMG LOL!!" at peoples jokes.
you cant even compare this to the v3. nokia hav done it again made a another shit fone to try to compete with motorola and hav lost yet again the 2 fones r about the same price but the moto has 256k screen a bigger screen and not that thing that they call a key pad. dont pay 1000$ 4 this pay a 10004 for the v3
I Got the 7280 yesterday after previously owning a Nokia 8910i as with my last purchase i got this phone for the styling more than anything, the 7280 without java makes this phone very simple and operationally basic, which is the whole point this phone isnt aimed at those who want to send dozens of text per day and certainly not aimed at those who want any kind of PDA functionality it simply doesnt have that, but if your like me and have a phone book full of every number you ever call then its great select the name and call, better yet use voice dial which works great, the construction is pretty good in my opinion but its plastic so time will tell.. i'm used to a titanium phone so i will just get used to the difference in construction, visually its great a real statement does show fingerprints with the glossy surface though. all in all i'm impressed so far...
the screen iz small n the keypad iz weird!!!! lots of memory n bluetoothe enable
Though the Nokia carkit 610 is compatible, it's impossible to pair the 7280 with it, because the time you get to fill in the 16-digit pincode on your 7280 is just 15 seconds. After trying to beat the time about 10 times i gave up....
i bought this fone today its fab easy to use .. mabye you people that cannot understand the finer things in life. should stick to 3410/3100/3200 the world would be a boaring place if we all stick to the normal stero type fone well done nokia ... not only a bril design but excellent quality thankyou
BIG PIMPA, why are you even here? Why don't you go back the your V3 forum where many complain about the V3!
I Choose "nice shell put stupid functions", as long as it is a just a Mobile Phone not a TV + MP3 Player, Radio, PC, Music Center, Work Station, Game Console, Lazer...
what's the best phone after all...a phone that has a nice shell put stupid functions..an ugly phone with fantastin features n functions..OMG!!!!what's da best phone!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t like 7280 because Nokia does nothing with a high quality, but as for V3 it is the same hapless phone with unfinished design, there was only one good phone from moto V70 and one from Nokia 8910i. Specking about 7280 I think it is better to buy a Haier P7. Actually there are no luxuriously designed phones excepting Vertu on the market. I was expecting V3 or 7280 to become one, but first one doesn’t look good enough for me (unfinished design, keyboard looks strange, in closed position the phone looks a little bit ugly) the second one (7280) looks crappy and cheap.
To past k700i owner
Dont leave posts when you dont have a v3 and dont know wat its like to own 1. You obviously need glasses/stronger ones, i suggest that book an appointment with specsavers because u cannot see the v3 for the beauty that it is. Why do u think all the stars go 4 it? Jordan & peter andre, gwen stefani! As an owner of my fab v3 i have 2 say that its one of the best mobiles ive ever had, and ive had the lot - nokias, samsungs, sony ericssons siemens. It is just simply stunning! The 7280 is so crap, i tried it in the shop and found it difficult 2 use and IMPOSSIBLE 2 text and i came home a happy v3 owner if not a little freaked out at paying £500 for it. But i dont regret it, it attracts the girls as well. Get the Moto V3 Razr! DONT GET THIS CRAPPY IMPRACTICAL 7280
Although I don't have the money to buy this phone, I would buy this phone over the v3 any day.
1)stupid unreliable keypad
2)although it's thin, it's very long and big
3)5mb memory? that is a joke.
4) quad-band seems to be the only good feature.
P.S: I would be more satisfied with my past k700i than the v3 which cost half its price. hahaha
7280 sounds good
Okie... I have had enough of this phone for a week... It's driving me nuts with it's functions which are not practical at all... It cost me almost an arm and an leg to get it being attracted to well... something unusual... I learned my lesson now... pffff
Which one is better this or D500?
how much will this phone sell for when its out in the uk? or is it already?
BTW u cannot see the time on this phone.. or the charge status... or anything else.. without unlocking the keyguard. the mirror effect of the screen means u can ONLY see the display when it is illuminated by the backlight... which turns off after awhile jus like any phone. Yea now i tempted to wear a nasty watch
yo man don't get this phone if u wanna text! I don't care how innovative the typing system is... it is damn slower... ive had it for a week and i am no faster!
i use my old phone for texting! and this phone for pimping..^_^ why couldn't nokia make a voice recognition system for each letter of the alphabet? or for numbers? like instead of saying a persons name to dial... say the actual numbers! that way it would only have to store your voice for 10 digits! instead of each persons name... like duhhh
Okay, I am thinking of getting this phone, because I absolutely adore the unique design of it. The only thing that keeps me from getting it, is the fact, that it doesn't have the "classical" buttons like most of us are used to. I may have to get use to it when writing SMS, but honestly, HOW complicated is it to use? I don't want to buy a phone that ends up being smashed in a corner, because it takes too bloody long to type.
This or Motorola V3 Razr? I think the V3 Razr looks better and is more practical. It is a little more expensive than the 7280 but is far better! check it out in the Motorola section on your left.
i think nokia copied some other mobile manufacturer idea. and.. its a china based coy. -Haier- any idea? check out on their products under this site.
