It was once cutting-edge – but the Nokia 6288 is now a solid workhorse for the no-frills brigade

The 6288 is big and basic but has enough charm to please anyone hunting for a no-frills Nokia

nokia 6288


The Nokia 6288 is a decent enough phone. It does have a good number of features and it can be bought for a value price. It's a little chunky and less stylish-looking compared to the latest slider phones.

3G, Plenty of features

Chunky design, Web browsing

Nokia 6288


A squarish slider with a focus on business and video, the 6288 is a repackaged version of the 6280 that addresses a few of the original's shortcomings.

Packaged with 512MB miniSD card ; Firmware upgraded since the 6280 ; Support for A2DP Bluetooth profile

Slider mechanism a little loose ; Design is slick but lacks the funk factor

The 6288 represents a good compromise between business and entertainment, falling somewhere between Nokia's Blackberry-esque E series and its multimedia-focused N models. It's not as chunky as the N80, and seems to skirt the firmware-related issues...

Nokia 6288


The 6288 improves on the 6280, but while it performs well, it lacks a standout feature to pull in the punters.

insists on going to silent even when I have set the ringtone and volume


Although I have always favoured Nokia, I haven't liked the phone from the start. The design is rather bulky compared to some phones. It is easy to find your way around the functions.I have found 2 downsides - the phone insists on going to silent ...

Easy to use in all aspects


Easy to use in all aspects. I have found that all facilities are easy to use and easy to remember how to use them. I do, sometimes find it is too easy to switch it on by mistake, but this is down to me not locking it. I use my bluetooth earpiece dur...
