heys guys please help!!! I bought this fon from a friend, after I inserted my SIM,the phone got no signal from my provider. We have the same service provider. What's wrong with that??Thanks guys!!
yes the PD cam flash..i saw it at nokia official website..I thought it can be used to this phone.viperkid, on ur previous posting,u said that u store up to 200++ songs in ur microSD memory.what type of converter u used?how about the sound quality?is that a little bit low compare with the original song?i use gold mp3 converter and convert all my mp3 songs to mp3 but with smaller size.usually less than 1mb..but the sound quality is totaly crab...
1)go to log > options > settings > show call duration > on
2)u can't remove d camera shutter sound. unless u delete d sound file (when u use 3rd party system browser [e.g. y-browser, et al]). i've never tried deleting it coz it may coz some error.. firmware V3.28 might hav an option of turning it off
3)if ur talkin bout lockCode then default is 12345, go to tools > settings > security > phone and sim > lock code, then set d autolock period. in case, u may want to hav d auto lock w/out keying in codes, download this for free:
4)if ur d technical type who has d right tools, u can change covers if not u can go to Greenhills (if u live in the Philippines) and they may hav spare 3250 casings.. though, don't know how much would the cost be
yup they r d same
as wat i know not yet, (as u may also know, d old PD-?? model nokia cam flash does not work with 3250). d best thing to do ryt now is to use image editing softwares like ACDSee to reduce image noise about 80-90% so printing a 4 x 6 sized photo captured by 3250 with low lighting will come out decent!
viperkid..i've already solve my problem..thanks a lot..
one more thing, is the nokia camera flash available in the market rite now?how much does it cost(in US dollar)?i think when we use this camera flash to take photo, it will increase photo quality a lot since no intergrated flash in this phone..this will help people to choose this fone rather than SE w810..(as we know the quality of photo taken by this phone in less light is really bad)
I sold my 6270 and got 3250 two weeks back,
it is a very good phone. everyone who is in duobt of this phone there is absolutely no problems in it.. GO AHEAD AND BUY IT.. I have already formatted my memory card twice, restored the factory settings twice... jus testing everything.. lol...
still its running perfectly fine..
I love this phone, everything is very good.
I jus got some issues with this phone..
1)how to make it display the time of an on going call (as on 6630), not after the call is disconnected.
2)how to disable the click sound of the camera, even in silent mode it makes the click sound.
3)whats the unlock code for turning the auto keygaurd ON. and also the procedure.
4)can i change the cover of the phone??? I knida scratched the screen, if yes where and how much it would cost?
you can also mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
THIS PHONE ROCKS
3250 vs K750i/w800i
The main difference between the w800i and k750i is that the w800i has a music key and comes with a 512 MB card, whereas the k750i comes with a 64 MB card.The speakers are the nearly the same(w800i and k750i), and so is almost everything else, except that the w800i has a music button, while the k750 doesn’t.
I must praise sony ericcson for launching the K750i a year earlier than the nokia 3250,coz its got nearly the same features as the 3250.
Let me list out the main
differences between the two:
1)MAJOR POINT-The 3250 is a series60 3rd edition OS,which is the latest Symbian OS,which is why i recommend it.Within the next year, there are gonna be hundreds of applications available for s60 3rd edition cell phones, including the 3250.
2)If you're buying it for music, i'd recommend the 3250, bcoz the speaker quality is excellent, plus its music player is very much similar to the iTunes you'd see in the Motorazr v3i.The 3250 is compatible with many more formats than the K750i,including the latest eAAC+ music format.
3)The K750i has a flash,which the 3250 does not, but the image quality is nearly the same, the k750 having a very small edge over the 3250(incase of less lighting images)
4)The speakers of the 3250 are louder AND clearer than the K750i.
5)The design of the 3250 is unique - no other cell phone in the world has a twist feature.
6)The 3250 has the Macromedia Flash Player-you can play flash games and apps.
7)THE SCREEN OF THE 3250 IS FAR MORE BIGGER THAN THE K750i.This feature is very important for viewing images and videos on a larger screen.
8)The K750i has an infrared port, whereas the 3250 does not.Both the cells support bluetooth.
9)I've noticed in the K750i(of two of my friends), that the joystick isnt that very reliable.Sony was never known for its joysticks, as they tend to not function properly in the future.Till now, I haven’t faced any problem in the 3250’s joystick, just that the silver coating on the joystick tends to wear out after sometime.
10)The 3250 has 4 extra music keys, which the K750i does not have.
11)Both the cells have support for the standard 3.5mm jack for connecting earphones.You can plug in your own set of earphones/headphones in either of them.
12)Size-wise, the K750i is much smaller than the 3250, but its screen/display is smaller too.
Hope i've helped...
to convert MP3s or audio CDs to eAAC+ (.m4a) 48kbps will do, download latest Nokia PC suite (6.81) here and install it on ur computer then use music manager (transfer music)
to convert WMAs to eAAC+ (.m4a) and non-playable MPEG files and AVI files, download and install this:
then use the ff parameters in here (for videos):
(if ur planning to watch it only on default video size on realplayer not full screen)
on d bottom part:
profile - 3GPP..
zoom - full..
after that click on d file u added and:
on d upper right part:
video codec - h263
video size - 176 x 144
bitrate - 256
frame rate - type in 22
aspect - auto
bitrate tolerance - type in 256
same quality - false
audio codec - mpeg4aac
bitrate - 32
sample rate - 32000
channels - stereo or mono (its up to ya)
disable audio - false
but if ur planning to watch em on full screen, juz change d frame rate into 15 instead of 22 so there will b no skipping..
all dose who hav d problem of no msg afte typin service command for d account or dose who do not get amt they hav talked after ending the call can try this

please help bro :(
Thanx in advance
Great phone, literally!
Has lotz of features, powefull camera, big screen, MicroSD slot, bluetooth. It beats the sony ericsson competitors coz it uses a SD card instead a M2.
The cons are the size (it´s big), and it´s not a 3G phone.
1) & 2) i think its bcoz uv deleted "sys" folder. try this, press *#7370# on standby screen and press 12345 when asked, this will reformat ur phone (delete all data on ur phone, so b sure to back it up) and d sys folder myt b restored to solve d said problem. after that re install all lost programs, d error msg should not appear by then.
d msg lagging must not happen again after reformatting ur phone. take note dat i hav around 800++ text/bluetooth/email/special (mixed) messages stored on my internal memory and so far never experienced any lagging whatsoever!
if from nokia, d vulnerability is very low or i must say almost 99% clean, no virus. since 3250 is a S60 3rd ED symbian phone, there r no virus/es out yet (as far as i know..)
latest i know is V3.28 RM-38 (here in the Philippines). since i haven't tried V3.28 yet, i can't tel wat r d pros and cons against V3.23.. usually, d newer firmware d better d device will perform.
d camera quality improved very very little after i've upgraded to V3.21 from V3.18..
yes u can put full length movies as long as u hav enough free memory space and d right format and settings of d movie.. i hav 220 full tracks (mixed, some WMA, AAC, MP3 and lots of eAAC+ format) on my 512mb microSD
if u want to continue virus-protection, u may want to purchase it otherwise, juz uninstall it. don't worry, as of now there r no known virus for S60 3rd ed (3250) yet
r u sure? u may want to email nokia and ask if they hav at least an authorized service center in ur area.. nwey, u can't upgrade d firmware of ur phone by urself (actually, u can but i don't recommend it and its so cumbersome and very risky!)
this is a good phone howevever after having it for a month it just stopped workin for no reason the screen f***d up
My town don't have Nokia Centre. Can I upgrade my mobile firmware by myself? Is there would be any risk? I need to know what the website got firmware to download to.
