dat's odd, coz my firmware is also 3.23 and i don't hav lagging on sending messages (even by group sending) did u get ur set at ur service provider or at d black market? if only mobango.com is not upgrading their site ryt now, i can upload a video of my 3250 showing dat sending messages only takes approx 3 seconds on V3.23! also i repeat, last April 1 when i got my 3250 and had d 3.18 firmware, i never experienced any lagging on sending msgs..
most handsets (not all) bought in d black market (with no warranty) and units provided with some network operators hav d message sending problem. if u buy at nokia store or any authorized distributor with warranty, u will not hav dat problem
try to put other type of SIM (different SIM/network) and switch 3250 on and off then insert d SIM u r originally using. if dat does not work, press "0" wyl on standby screen using ur original SIM and browse d net for sometime...
yup its about software. 6680 does not hav dat problem coz its been out for quite sometime now and it now has a more stable software whether OEM or not unlike 3250 which has some bugs especially on non-OEM firmware (units provided by ur network operator). don't worry 3250s from nokia store and other authorized distributor does not hav dat problem
(rephrase) i did reset my phone, but there was no change. pleeease help meee!!!! i just bought my phone today...viperkid, if you could help me, i'll buy you a drink! ;)

once again thanks alot bro'z 4 helping me out!!
ok.thanks a lot 4 ur help.i'm so excited!my 3250 will come by dis saturday...lookin forward 2 share my views on dis forum..c ya.KEEP ROCKIN...
perhaps d nokia care center u visited does not hav a more updated one than ur current 3.18 meaning dey also hav 3.18 dat's y dey said sending service commands wil stil not work otherwise d nokia care rep u talked with is not well trained and he/she does not know wat he/she is talkin about coz i've tried upgrading to 3.21 and it corrected d problem re sending service commands with instant reply on screen (my balance)! also, as far as i know, firmware upgrading does not include disasembling/opening of ur unit coz i had upgraded my firmware 2 times already and i was told by nokia care philippines dat dey won't open my unit anymore coz its cumbersome (coz i requested dem to open my 3250 juz to clean d inner screen display..). here in our country firmware upgrades takes around 2-6 hours only and u can get ur unit on d same day u brought it (on selected authorized centers)!
yup i had 6630 b4. nope im not "themagicpenguin" u were referrin to in 6630's forum. juz want to remind u dat u must only buy 3250 direct from Nokia Store or any authorized distributors! never get from any unathorized stores (black market) which does not hav any warranty from nokia coz these units hav lots of problems (malfunctioning twisting mechanism, lagging on sending a message and more). u may b savin some dime f u buy in black market but u'll surely have headache! so don't forget get 3250 only at nokia store!
wat's ur firmware? try to uprade to at least 3.21 or 3.23 or 3.28 whichever is available in ur area at ur nearest authorized nokia care ctr. btw, when i bought my 3250 last April 1, i never experienced any lagging on sending msgs and/or performance, in fact 3250 is d fastest S60 i've ever used to date! i had 6630 and 7610. i hop u didn't get urs in d black market.. (no offense). as of now, u can't get firmware updates from nokia and do it on ur own PC. u can check here weekly, nokia is adding new phones from time to time:
i guess, its really up to ya.. btw, wer did u get ur 3250? nokia store or authorized distributors or d black market? but honestly, all d problems u told me does not exist on my 3250 even my firmware then was only 3.18! i wish u d best of luck next tym u get a new phone!
no u can't get ulead nokia edition in d internet. d 1 on d cd is not a trial version. if u got ur 3250 at an authorized distributor, then u can ask them a copy for free!
if u don't need symbian, u may want to try W810, but if u need symbian 3250 is d best choice (buy only at nokia store) ryt now it will surely turn heads more than W810 can, obviously coz of d twisting keypad! also, u must take note dat 3250's loudspeaker may b only 1 but d output is stereo and it is louder than ur 6270s loudspeaker! i don't recommend SE k750 coz of d joystick, it will malfunction or will hav a defect after 6 months for sure, 100%! by then, its virtually useless! i had k750 before, its great but then again d joystick issue.. final verdict, is still up to ya!
i think u got ur 3250 from ur carrier/network operator or from d black market. no offense, but those units really has d said issues. u may try to upgrade ur firmware to 3.23 at nokia care.
yup, it deletes all data stored on phone memory only
i don't blame u if ur confused. u see, not all person who posts in here got their 3250 from nokia care/authorized distributor so not all of em got d 100% fault free unit. ask for me, i got it from nokia store direct last april 1, and trust me, i never had d said lagging or hanging when sending msgs even i only had 3.18 firmware then.. buy only at nokia store to avoid faulty units! never buy in d black market. i hav 3250 for over 5 months now, and i hav 800++ msgs, but never experience slowing on sending msgs even by groups! im using 512mb microSD

There are no 100% perfect production from handphone.Some of them are defect.
Our friends who said this handset goed,ya they get normal product,this 3250 has better performance than their older handset or they are not overestimated over this 3250.
Our friends who said many complaints,maybe they get defect product/software problem, or their older handset have faster response than 3250 or they are overestimated over this 3250.That's why they are disappointed.
So if you are sure that the feature in this handset can fulfill your need,get it, and you must buy it in officially Nokia (don't buy it in black market).Than if you find problem you can change it (with same or another type without problem).
But sure,smartphone shall slower response than normal phone.
The best if you have friends around you,so you can try it by yourself and ask to your friends directly (not only via website).
Hey All. In Brief I wanna say that the Nokia 3250 is a great set for mid-range users. To answer your questions:
No it dosen't take 5 mins to send an SMS. it sends it in two secs or less. The problem may be with your gsm provider or carrier.
It dosen't need formating at all. I've been using it for one month and a half and it performs real smooth. Besides it's a performance beast with a 233 MHz ARM CPU and 32 MB RAM (too much for a smartphone), so it dosen't use the 10 MB flash memory as virtual memory, then you can fill it up without the risk of it slowing down like other phone brands.
The good thing in this smartphone is that it has one of the loudest speakers in the cellphone market. It goes beyond 105 dB without distortion. The equalizer is responive and the Bass boost is a nokia's grand prize winner that leaves other music phones way behind.
The bad thing about it is the low-end 2 Mpix cam. It hasn't any autofocus and no flash and disorts alot in low lighting conditions.
For benchmarking this phone ran the SPmarkjava06 3D game @ 14.1 FPS and the 2D game @ 42 FPS (wich also leaves other phones way behind).
In a scale of 1 to 10 i give it 8.2~8.3
