in case u haven't tried this, imitate this audio setting (juz activate this everytime u listen to music using HS-20 default earphones)
and activate this one if ur not goin to listen to any earphones plugged onto d pop port (only thru loudspeaker)
but if still think dat HS-20 cannot deliver u what u really like (especially great bass elements) i suggest dat u buy urself an A4Tech MK-620 metallic earphone, here in our country i bought it at around seven d0llars only! of all earphones i tried in dat price range, no commercial brands can achieve high quality bass! i give it a 9.2/10 for bass and 7.9/10 for treble.. when u hav ur MK-620, juz follow this audio setting:
here's d official website:
overall, MK620's sound quality is better than HS20 bcoz d 1st one has a more solid sound distortion free and great bass! though, HS20 has a bit clearer sound.. MK620 may not b as clear as HS20 but acoustic elements r more expressed than d latter!
oh yeah, in case u want d TV commercial of 3250 on ur phone, download it here and enjoy!
re transferring files (after u ripped/converted ur music files using "transfer music"), connect d USB cable to ur 3250, juz hit "Data transfer" when asked (b4 u do dat activate d default nokia theme first, to prevent errors [sumtyms]) and when windows autoplay appears jus close it and voila juz drag n drop mp3s, WMAs, eAAC+s from ur PC to the directory "sounds/digital sounds" on ur microSD! re operator logos, i juz get em via my network operator (sent Over-The-Air) and it's workin as clean as a whistle!
go to Tools > settings > security > phone and sim > auto lock period
i tried black n white operator logos dude.not workin!d same logo used 2 work in my 6630.wat shud i do?n i'm not at all satisfied wit d earfones quality...they're worse than any fone....
thanks 4 d suggestion.i'll drag n drop d files.but,plz tell me,d next time i wana store songs into my fone in eAAC+,wat shud i use? transfer music?or wat?plz lemme kno.c ya,=.

Hey i was just passin through this website as i was lookin up some info on the net on this phoone c i got this phone in pink an di dont know if it can hold movies. sum1 said you could but how would you do it? do u need a new bigger memory card or wat? & Viperkid good job you have helped sooo many people on this website goo job!!
wow fantastic sound even louder then ugly w550 k800 w700 even latest w850.i proud in my mobile that i have a fantastic phone vvvv stylish.
hey viperkid...from where can i download the theme creator for symbian 3rd edition,os9.1???
I just got my mobile, and everytime i turn it on it doesn't read the memory card even though it is in the slot. I have to remove it then put it back in again before it reads, do you know how i can fix this problem. thanks.
to store lots of music tracks on ur card use d format eAAC+ (M4A) and choose 48kbps (mobile optimized format). yes, d quality is almost d same as MP3 files encoded at 128kbps as long as u ripped directly from d audio CD! i'll rate their quality against d original (ripped directly from audio CD), MP3 128kbps = 96%, eAAC+ 48kbps = 91 to 94%! but if ur converting ur current mp3s and WMAs into mobile optimized format (m4a 48kbps) d quality wil not b as good, its roughly 75 to 84% only.. use d latest nokia pc suite (6.81) which has d latest music manager to achieve those results. i use lots of eAAC+ 48kbps, WMA and MP3 formats on my 3250
apps and games (not all of em r free though)
i want to store maximum songs on my 512 mb card....for that should i convert it to 'accplus' format at 48kbit/s??????
are u sure that the quality will almost the same as mp3 format???
which format r u using in ur 3250???
plz reply friend....
just got tha phone n its off tha hook...mine is quite fast,has no sms delay n gets service everywhere...do y'all have the new spiderman 3 theme?its too cool to be true...anyways was wondering if anyone knew where i could get free applications and games for my phone...i only seem to find themes
Blank and toto:
only difference is dat this updated version has a cd dat includes PC suite 6.81 which has d latest music manager and yahoo go application pre loaded (which we current 3250 owners can hav too by juz downloading on their respective websites) soon on yahoo..
and of course d 1GB microSD included in d sales package and 2 new preinstalled themes (but take note dat in d official nokia statement this updated 3250xpress music will b sold at 400 euros so it means its more expensive than 3250, its juz like buying a 1GB microSD immediately..) oh yeah, also d new youthful colors! don't worry, both 3250's support 2GB microSD!
video call is a 3G service allowing u to see d person u r talking with on d other line, but it requires both parties (u and called person) to hav 3G capable handsets under a 3G network. i think nokia juz included dat field so it will come handy in d (future?), so u know what someone's video call # is. also, as i understand, EDGE is constantly being improved (juz take a look at N93 and N95's EDGE speeds) its almost around d speed of 3G which means dat in future a video call may b available with EDGE handsets soon, provided dat a secondary camera or rotating cam like 3250's or cam attachment is available (i think 3250's max EDGE uplink and downlink speeds r juz enough to stream a CIF video to conduct a video call, its just dat nokia disabled d feature and/or network solutions r not yet deployed/installed thru network operators worldwide [if nokia plans to make EDGE handsets to make vid calls]...). re tracks, if u hav a 512mb microSD (with around 484mb free space), u can store about 350-400 tracks (encoded with eAAC+ 48kbps by nokia music manager).
i hav 90++ images, 50++ videos, 190 tracks, etc on my microSD but when i open my gallery, it only takes 1.5 seconds for all d stuff to appear.. perhaps u used nokia music manager in transferring tracks (resulting into all folders & subfolders 2be saved onto ur microSD too [e.g. folders "Blue or Artist" and "All Rise or Album name"] hence 3250 is havin a long time to search in d subfolders of each track..) i suggest dat u go to ur default file mgr and look into ur tracks and double check if folders of artists and subfolders of album names r present, if it is then juz move d mp3/eAAC or whatever music file itself to microSD directory "sound clips/digital sounds. to prevent folders and subfolders of Artists and Album names, juz use d USB mass storage n do d drag n drop stuff! =) my firmware is also 3.23. and yes, i hav an operator logo, i already changed it many times like 15x! haven't tried colored operator logos though..
juz go to ur neareast authorized service center by nokia and hav ur firmware upgraded to at least 3.21 or higher to solve ur problem in service commands so u can check ur prepaid balance. its free as long as u hav d limited warranty by nokia.
i hav 3250 in six months now, as of now d keyboard is still d same as d first tym i got it! it still works 100% twist to music, phone or camera! really COOL
if ur usin AAC d best is 128kbps but if ur usin eAAC+ (M4A) 48kbps is d best bitrate (it has almost d same quality as 64kbps and u won't hear their difference). u can store around 350-400 tracks on 512mb microSD (songs with duration of 3:45 encoded in M4A format 48kbps [mobile optimized format])
since im not havin d SMS laggin problem too, i didn't installed d accelerator juz yet. but i think nokia won't do anything to harm our phones.. perhpaps i'll install it eventually!
no apps yet, but flash game here!
FYI, current 3250s now supports 2GB microSD cards too! u can check it here:
what type of music files u r trying to convert to mobile optimized format, mp3?
what PC suite version u hav? if it's not 6.81 then u really hav d older version with d problematic mp3 to eAAC+ conversion! u can get d latest here:
1) currently u can upgrade ur firmware thru authorized nokia service centers, but soon 3250 wil b included in this list so u don't hav to go to any service centers, all u need is ur PC and d USB cable and internet connection!
2) i think dat's normal, and besides not all has dat issue, only some of em, especially tracks recorded at high volumes or edited by a software with increased volume from d original one..
100%, u can set mp3 and other supported music files by 3250 as ringtone, message alert, email alert! my reception never been this great, its 1 of d best units i hav! did not experienced any dropped calls unlike SE phones!
hi people.....is there any difference between the 3250 & 3250 (Xpress music)???????
& when the new one will be released???plz
I just ordered my phone and im excited..so i was wondering can i make an mp3 ringtone? How is this done do i edit a song using the nokia pc suite? Is there any things I should look for when i get my phone? And how is your recepetion..im using it in the us..and my main concern is how the reception is..I have nokia 7710 I love it but its heavy for me and thought the 3250 might be a nice change..please let me know thanks
3250 is a good fone....but after few months u will seriously dislike it due to its bulkiness and slightly low 2megapix quality as compared to w810i..when played thro headfones w810 bass element is higher than 3250...i am using this fone for 3 monts and now i really want to sell it and go for w810i....moreover the twisting mechanism can also give many problems..
i bought the phone a few days back and its truly awesome. i needed a few tips from you though.
1) how do i upgrade the firmware.
2) the speakers seem to hav a slight disturbance while playing mp3 files at high volume. is it a prob. with the speaker? or will it reduce if i use the conversion program of the pc suite?
thnx a lot and this fone rocks otherwise.
