View Full Version : Nokia 6280 Firmware?

10-04-2006, 09:30 AM
I bought a Nokia 6280 from an eBay auction and was disappointed to discover it's a "three" model with all their links and services built right in (a factory reset doesn't clear).

Not only that but although the seller assured me it was bought in the UK, a lot of the text in the phone and manual is in Japanese - including the built in reference dictionary rendering that feature useless. (The language option makes no difference - is already set to English).

So I was wondering if it's possible to get the original firmware (or whatever's relevant) and replace the entire O/S on the phone back to original Nokia (non-three) spec.

Does anyone know if and/or how this can be done?

You can take it to a Nokia Service Centre and they MAY flash it with the unbranded software. However they may not agree to flash the unbranded firmware if they see three all over it. It will cost you about 20. This should also sort the language issue out

Thanks Dozza - that's definitely an avenue worth exploring.

if you want to upgrade the firmware on a 6280 (which is the model mentioned in this thread) then you need a box to do it... either purchase a flashing box or take your phone to a shop for flashing which is the cheaper option!!!

you can use a box called Phoenix Twister which runs official non cracked phoenix... or JAF... or UFS... in fact there are many boxes that support BB5 flashing, my personal favourite is just to use Phoenix for BB5 (safest) and UFS for things like DCT4 etc...
