6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

Hi, currently have the 6280 on the 3 network.

Getting annoying problem with the phone reseting itself whenever a key is pressed - this happens about 2-5 times a day and is very annoying.

im wondering where i can get/download a firmware update for the phone that could help me out of this problem.

Heres my current version:
V 03.36
05-12-05
RM-78

Would really appreciate some help here!!
Thanks!

Hi, the Nokia 6280 with Nokia s40 system crashes sometimes when you use some application in conjunction with the musicplayer/radio.

Listen to music through musicplayer then when you edit the navigationbuttons options the "multimedia" option always shows blocks instead of text (using swedish language). After changing some of the options the cellphone rebooted itself/i.e crashed.

Crashed once more 3 hours later when switching from the radio to musicplayer without turning off the radio before.

Third time it crashed when I was listening through the musicplayer and opened the nameslist to call but it crashed as soon as the list opened.

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

Not a clue about that.. I don't even think Nokia has a fix for it. I'm gonna see if Three (3) has heard anything because they owe it to provide the fix since they sold a faulty product.

Hi,

In this kind of situations i think it is best to ask for the new firmware and apply to the Nokia service points.

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

"6270" Ok well I can even go one better than all you guys. Ok well 1 week after I bought it it started resetting all the time I mean all the time. Seemed like when ever I was doing anything on the phone. Except making calls that was fine. But!!!! "NOW" It wont even start up it crash's right after the begining screen. And I bought the phone from an Asian phone store in San Diego,Ca. so I get no warrentie in America with it. So now I have got to send it overseeas to get it fixed. Probably take 1 or 2 months. I am so frustrated rrrrrrrrrr......

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

So the big question is - if Three do release a firmware update - how will this operate? Will you be able to go to a Three store and have this done for free? Will you need to send it in to be updated?

Flopp.

According to Three I will have to go to a 3Store and leave my phone. It will take 1-2 weeks to make the upgrade, and I will get a replacement phone if one is available.

For me it will be worth the trouble..

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

WHAT! That is beyond a joke!!

I mean, you would be without your phone for 1-2 weeks - what the heck! People *need* their phones on a daily basis and they also *NEED* them to work.

I doubt Three will be willing to refund the line rental for the period the phone has been away, either. Madness.

I am very tempted to simply return mine under DSR and go with the Sony Ericsson instead.

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

I'm one of those whos 6280 resets when you change profile.
I found out that changing profile throw pressing the on/off button and choose the profile in that menu doesn't restart the phoen as offen like you do it throw menu->settings->profile.

Just a tip before an updated firmware will be avaliable, hope that helps some of you.

My firmware ver is 03.41, 14-01-06, RM-78.

It really sucks that you have to be without your phone for two weeks...

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

I visited my local Nokia Service Agent in Edinburgh yesterday, and he advised me that there was not yet any firmware updates for the 6280. He told me that there were more recent versions of the software (mine is 3.36). He also tolsd me that they would be able to update any network's version of the firmware. He advised me to return shortly to check if the update had been released.

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

Hi All!

I know this is very frustrating for you all. I can assure you that we are looking into this matter, but could you all let us know what network you are on and what version of software is installed? You can find this out by entering *#0000# on the phones keypad.

Cheers

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

6280
v3.36

'Three' network

I'm getting all of the same problems mentioned in this thread, resetting when doing certain things like changing profiles or sending a text message, the software crashing and refusing to emit sound after attempting to play a ringtone, and extremely poor battery life (less than 24 hours, with only one 15 minute call made).

Please work hard to establish a solution to this fault, and one which Three customers can apply themselves using the USB cable that came with the phone, rather than expecting us to return our phones to Three for them to update, as they are saying this will take at least two weeks to turn around.

Re: 6280 Firmware Update.Phone keeps reseting itself.

I have had my 6280 for 2 weeks and it has 03.36 dated 05-12-05 but doesn't seem to suffer the problems referred to in this forum. It has reset itself twice but I havent been able to match it to a specific event. It does drop its bluetooth link very 30 mins or so when linked to my parrot car kit but only for a second and it re-connects itself straight away.
