Ordered a Nokia 6288 Unlocked in Black for £13.45 and a CA-53 data cable for £1.45. I'm going "smartphoneless" (except for filming YT), my Samsung and Sony will be in a drawer upstairs (so they aren't easily accessible and visible). I like the 6288 as it has a large screen with a decent pixel density, it's thick, it's running S40 which is not a smartphone OS like S60, battery life will be great as it doesn't have WiFi. The screen resolution and OS means that it will be suitable for the games that I'll install on it. Should arrive in a day or two. Will be happy to relive life as if it's 2012 ;)

                      I had this problem - the thing kept on shutting down after it was switch on. I found a solution by accident (bear in mind it may be voodoo, but it worked) - Switch it on, then before it shuts down, just keep pressing the red button, may be 100 times, if you do this repeatably it should fix the problem. Anyhow it work for me. Good Luck, I know it's annoying, I was about to toss mine out of the window :)

                            eric, 13 Sep 2008My 6288's display has just gone blank for some reason and i... moreTry typing "sweet corn" into your 6288, then delete the space, and try to put a full-stop or a comma at the end. Does it crash? Mine does, so does my wife's*. I took my phone into the shop I bought it from and they wouldn't do anything. I can reproduce the fault over & over but they wouldn't even update the firmware.

                            This phone is really *really* cheap - pardon my French - sh*t. It's really put me off buying another Nokia.

                            * my wife's phone has the latest firmware on it as she had the "white screen on death" that a lot of people her are complaining about and Nokia charged her £30 to "repair" it

                                6288 was working fine put it in my breast pocket (left) drove for 1 hour got out of the car , took my phone out of my pocket and it was cracked in a random "V" shape from the bottom of the screen. I did not bang it, drop it or put any pressure on it. I don't know what caused it, but it aint good. Won't know what, if anything, NOKIA will do about it till tomorrow, I'm guessin they'll try and dodge the bullet and say it's my fault, but how does a phone break in ones breast pocket while driving a car. Sheesh.

                                  its a great phone.
                                  i got it for a year and it had no problems at all...
                                  only the same annoying problem that the 6280 had, the dust under the screen.
                                  its a good phone anyways, no problems at all!!.
                                  i mean, my phone is 1 year old and it look totaly new.
                                  and also, if your buying one for your kid, it have great 3D,J2me and SE ability coz it have a great screen. also it is the only 3G phone with the screen size of 240x320 pixels, and its working perfect!.
                                  i rate it as a 9/10
                                  and recrommand it as a "Hot Buy"
                                  LoVe It So MuCh!

                                    i have this phone about three months now and like everyone else, the slightest bit of pressure (bumped in2 someone while the phone was in my pocket) and the screen cracked. Now it keeps freezing, and the screen keeps going white with only the battery icon displaying! it is a good phone just a bit annoying :@

                                        I am on my 2nd 6288, the first I could not use, although the repairer said "fault not found" and didn't believe me, and try as I might, it wouldn't do it in the store...same issue as many people, screen randomly goes white with battery icon in blue only thing showing. On my 2nd phone, and now it starts doing the very same thing. Even updated the firmware, and no change. Nokia are peddling rubbish in this model, 2 from 2 and I won't bother going for strike 3.
