I will be buying this model soon but I am concerned with the camera's quality. Can anyone tell me if the camera module has improved with all the firmware updates? Thank You.
hi viperkid....wats up....ur doing a gr8 job i must say...i have a firmware ver 3.23 15-5-06 RM 38....and its doing well but can u tell me the latest firmware available and whether i should go for it or not (pros & cons of new firmware)...plz advise...
The W700i is the same as the K750, the only difference being that the w700i is a walkman phone, and it has the extra 'W' button.It comes with a 256 MB card, but the k750 comes with a 64mb card. I cant say how good the speaker is, as the cell's just released, but generally walkman phones have better speakers than the non-walkman phones(Only including SEriccson, no other brand).
The k750 looks better though, and the w700 doesn't have autofocus,though it has HSCSD(I have absolutely no clue of as to what that is.You can ask viperkid though...)
But i still recommend you go for the 3250 instead of a sony, coz sony cells are the least reliable(my friends are damn unhappy with their sony cells like k750i and w900).
I'm not at home now, but i have a detailed comparision(3250 v/s k750i) at home, and i'll print it here within max about a day or two...
The Nokia 3250 is a brilliant phone! i love it!!
I was wondering if you can get viruses form downloading games form the nooia website to your phone?
Can you even get viruses?
when i got my fone at first i didn't experience dat message freeze/hang problem but from then on i slowly start to have this problem but what i did was i reformated my fone by typing *#7370# (12345) and now that problem is fixed.. my only problem is how could i avoid this kind of problem. does this mean that i have to reformat my fone everytym i experience this message lag problem?
Thnx a ton for the NG...uve helped me alot in deciding..im Sorry to ask you again but i want to know which is betta...3250 or w700i??thnx a ton again..
i am so so dissapointed with the pure fact that the 3250 pink is being discontinued!!! i really wanted this phone only in pink iv even looked on ebay p.a.u.g mobiles its over £200 there! if any1 can help me find a 3250 in PINK i will love you 4eva mwah xxx
N3250 loudspeaker are really not match to SEW550i loudspeaker.....it was an easy job for W550i loudspeaker cover over N3250 loudspeaker...for sure N3250 are more louder than W810i/W800i!!!!!
since ur not music oriented, i think its best for ya to get 5500 coz of its smaller size overall which i think ur deciding factor is, dimensions.
i think u've subscribed to "caller ring tune" or d like from ur network operator. instead of normal ringing sound, ur selected music or ur network's promo "ring back tune" is played whenever someone's callin u. u can contact ur operator on how to deactivate it.
my current firmware is V3.21 RM-38 01 Apr 2006. yup, usually d higher version available d better ur phone will be! especially when u hav d 1 year warranty!
bea: (in case u have not decided yet)
since i haven't tried W900 and W550 yet, i'll not include it on my comparison here, when 3250's loudspeaker is tested head to head (quality and loudness) im 100% sure it is better than W800 and k750
u can find it here:
i hav V3.21 firmware but i don't hav dat problem. try to press *#7370# wyl on standby screen and key in 12345 when asked (default). remember to backup all ur data as all of it will b deleted when u press those codes. also, b sure to hav ur firmware updated only by nokia care center or by any authorized by nokia on your country.
those folders r needed by the operating system which is symbian to operate properly, so just leave em there and never delete it (but if im not mistakin, there r no 3rd party system browser out there to permanently delete files on restricted folders..) d only way to improve free mem on internal mem is to delete MMS, email, bluetooth msgs and to clear both caches or all internet/wap browsers' cache installed on ur 3250, u may also want to delete installation files (provided all aformentioned items/attachments r already saved or u hav a backup on ur PC)
normally, d microSD slot/door must b tight and should not easily open w/out force by just twisting d phone like dat, ur dealer probably tricked u, hav it exchanged to a real and genuined brand new unit..
full screen caller (trial only)
after installin it, go to ur favorites folder and u hav to set up all ur contacts and assign all d pics from there.
upgrade ur firmware to at least V3.21 at nokia care center or any authorized by nokia only and all ur problems will vanish! juz b sure dat u did not get ur 3250 at unauthorized distributors or from certain network operators out there which has faulty units/software (sorry, no offense)
xilisoft vid converter 3.1 (trial)
here r d settings in converting with it:
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

bitrate - 32
sample rate - 32000
channels - stereo or mono (its up to ya)
disable audio - false
d said parameters is best played only on default screen size not in full screen mode.
nokia pc suite 6.81 (which has d audio converter) definitely not a trial
re mobango, u can upload ur mobile files in there but first u must sign up, its free! here:
I've been using the 3250 for almost 3 months now,and what i've realised is that this cell is mainly for music.Trust me, if you're a music lover, then this is the cell to go for!!
But incase you're not interested in the music,and rather wanna go in for the imaging features like the camera, then the N70 is a better choice, because the clarity of the N70's images is better than the 3250, AS WELL AS THE N80 !!!!Though the N80 is a 3.2 Megapixel cell, it doesn't have great clarity.
If i'm not mistaken, the N70 has video recording in mp4 format, which is supposedly better than the 3250's 3gp format,but let me tell you, the 3250's video recording is excellent.
The 3250 has a very detailed music library,which is perfect for music lovers, while the N70 is better for imaging purposes.
Oh, and two of the major advantages of the 3250 over the N70:
1)The 3250 is a Series 60 version 3 OS, while the N70 is a Series 60 version 2 OS.Though there arent many applications for the 3250 as yet, within the next half-year, there are gonna be some fantastic applications available for the 3250.
2)You can plug in your own set of earphones in the 3250(even the iPod's earphones) as it has the standard 3.5mm jack,whereas the N70 allows only nokia headsets to be plugged in.
The 3250 doesn't have a flash, which is why the N70(which has a flash) is better for imaging.Both have 2 Megapixel cameras.
Alsi,the music quality is louder and better in the 3250.
Now its upto you- what do you like more:Music or the Camera?
P.S.-The N70 is quite a common cell now,plus, the 3250 can make more heads turn than the N70 bcoz of its twist feature.Also, if you're planning to buy the 3250, i highly recommend you buy it only from an authorised nokia dealer.
Hope i've helped...
Could you please peost the links for the vido converter you had mentioned as well as the nokia audio converter?
I lost the links, and wanted to download them.Also,are they the full versions or trial versions??
Oh and by the way, could you tell me how to post your own links of the mobango website(like how you did for the 'best audio settings')? I've got some nice java games like MissionImpossible:III, all the Prince of Persia games which i wanted to share with everyone...
Thanx a lot...
hi! i got n3250 last month and i hate sending msgs! it hangs! it took 2mins, i think before sending the msg! gosh! i got bored waiting for the msg to be sent! why's dat so? hmm?
i hav a problem sendin service commands on my fone.(#124) for my network.i only get a "done" msg and nothing else.anyone got a clue?
I have been using this phone for more than 3 months now. I must say that i am pretty satisfied with the phone. The sound quality is very good especially when u use the proper headset and the equalizer setting that viperkid has given. The camera pics taken in bright light is very good, but those taken indoors suffer. Sad that it does not have a flash. The build quality of the phone is also very good as is the twisting feature. I had updated the firmware to get rid of the message lagging problem and the *xxx# balance display not working. My current firmware version is 3.23
Wanted to ask u guys something. Is there any way in which we can assign a full picture to a contact instead of the thumbnail? It would be a good addition if we can see the incoming caller's pic in full screen as in SE phones rather than the thumbnail view..
1) when I restart my phone or switch on it, my phone will automatically shows "installing" although im not install any software. so i have to wait until it finished before can use the phone..can u tell me wat to do to solve this problem???
2) another one is i was accidentely deleted files inside the "sys" folder. as a result, i cannot run some application like snake game and XpressMusic in the "media" folder. when I try to install both of them again by go to "App Manager", it shows "unable to install"...so I hope u can email me the contain of "sys" files so that I can run both application normally...
*other readers who know how to fix this problem can also help me...thank u

1) eachtime i restart my h/p, my phone will installing the software..I dont know why..but it takes up to 2 miutes waiting for my phone to stop installing...does anyone know how to stop my phone from this problem???
