    Hey i cant seem to find any way of updating the software on my phone, nokia 6280.

    Its the worst phone ive ever had, so many bugs, just generally awful and a nuisance.

    My friend sent his off to be repaired for some reason, and they returned it with the new software (firmware?).

    Anyway, i was just wondering if anyone knows if i can get this software of the net, and install it using my data cable?

    Any version you can find is great....

    thanks.

    Alright m8

    I take it you are on the 3 network

    Your only option m8 is to take it to a Nokia service center or back to the shop where they will send it off to be flashed, but from what I have heard even when they update / upgrade the software you will still have problems with it, the 6280 is a poor choice of phone.

    The most stable version is V3.70 (less reported problems)

    good luck

    You're welcome m8

    FFR, Sony Ericsson phones are good, but then it all depends what features you require in a phone.

    If I see your post asking for recommendations provide a list of all the features required and I will give you a list ;-)

    (((edit))) spelling, lol

    One model I can highly recommend straight off for your needs is the Sony Ericsson W810i, admittedly it is not one of the latest model on the block, been around for about a year, but is top notch and can be picked up for as little as £140 (UK price)

    I have not tested this model (yet) but I have heard good things about the SE W880i (if you want one of the latest models) then this one is worth a look ;-)

    Personally I would look no further than the SE W810i.

    I do not know how long the images will stay, but google is your friend ;-)

    (((edit))) Forgot to add the SE W850i, I prefer my SE W810i but I also highly recommend the SE W850i

    Ok, they will be on my list heehee.

    The nokia N95 is looking promising, when its out....i think its out at the end of this month.

    Yeh it looks good, but it will be very expensive, and my friends getting it so im not LOL!

    I personally do not like the look of it (N95), no doubt when released it will have alot of bugs that will need sorting out, like many Nokia phones the software is poor IMO. I have and love my Nokia 6131 but also has a few minor software related problems. (not worth sending it off and not having my phone for the next 2-3 weeks)

    that is why I love my SE phones most problems are sorted out very quickly.

    Pazzini.

    Im getting a phone contract like...later on tonight or something/

    I think i might buy one of those sony ericcson walkman phones/

    Which is the latest one mate? And how late is that ?

    The latest model I believe is the W880i as mentioned above I have heard really good things about this phone but have yet to handle it myself.

    Remember if you do not like the model you choose after buying it you have 14 days to return it. (contract)

    Before you buy, try the phone out, Carphone warehouse let me examine the mobile thoroughly before I bought my Nokia 6131, take your time and don't be rushed into buying.

    Hope this message has not got to you to late

    Let me know how it goes, good luck and all the best. ;-)

    Heyyy pazzini.

    Well, the handset im getting is the nokia 6233.

    Before you put your head in your hands, there are two reasons im getting this handset.

    1) It means i get half price line rental for the whole duration of the contract!!

    2) I previously had a nokia 6230, and to this day i think its the best phone i've ever had. Everything was brilliant with it! If they made one of those with a 3 megapixel camera and a slightly bigger screen, i would buy one. the 6233 has a 2 megapixel, still an improvement.

    I get 1000 texts a month, and 300 minutes. Not bad for £17.50 a month.
