It is really not important to twist the phone, you may try it with a magnet.
I found some strange behaviour in my nokia 3250 phone.
You can switch on the camera and music player without touching any button of the phone itself! Don't believe me try it!
Take a magnet, (works in one pole only) and move it over the joystick to key '2' and then '3' or in reverse order, the 3250 wakes up from slumber, lights, camera and action all go on majestically.
Try and have fun.
for those who suffers from message lag or message error problem even though upgrding your firmware doesn't work,just try to format your phone, type *#7370# and password 12345,works for me thanks kabayan viperkid for this tip..
this phone is quite not the phone i was looking for when i bought it every time i spin the bottom a song comes on and i dont like that
i was checking the memory in my memory card and i found that lots of memory is lost in folders which i dont know what they made for!! these folders r (system, private, sys, resources) while (system) and (private) r hidden folders.. i have 21.5mb in the private folder!! i dont know why is that.. but is there anyway to improve the memory on the phone card? by the way u can explore all ur folders on the phone by program called Y-browser.. its cool!!
then SE sucks...BIG TIME,, you say that they are already experienced with walkman fones...then why cant they surpass nokias music fones considering nokia being "newbie" on music fones..
and im not talking about 3250 alone,, the new generation nokia fones rock, not only in music,, check the dvd quality cams some are equipped with
ppl out there if ur nuts abt muzik trust me ....... this cell rocks.... its fu@kin loud....... u ll have fun...... take care
i think u should buy Se w810i because of walkman feature,it is also Sony have xperience in make walkman phone but nokia 1st time make walkaman phone so nokia must learn a lot of new things..SE w810i dunt have message lag or sumthing like that you know...so choose wisely!! GO for SE w810i!!! gud luck in watever ur choice
Nokia 3250 is a way better phone to go with, couldn't be bothered listing all the reasons why but yeah. =>
I have a 3250 with Firmware Version 3.23 RM 38. I still have the "message lag" problem and also at times the camera will not turn on when turned anti clockwise..
Please tell me if a firmware update is available?
I might be a bit late in replying, but i would highly recommend the SE w900 in comparision to the Nokia 3250, simply because each of its functions work better than the 3250's.My friend has the w900, and trust me, it is one helluva cell!!
Its got no joystick(advantage, as sony sucks in the joystick department),instead has the normal 5 keys,and the loudspeaker is FAR more louder than the 3250(I'd say ALMOST 1.5 times louder).Its camera is also 2MP, but is slightly better,as the night pics are better in the w900(bcoz of the flash) as compared to the 3250.But the 3250 too has excellent video recording capabilities(3gp format,but still damn good).
But the catch is that the w900 costs more than 1.5 times than the 3250.(In India, 3250 costs approx. Rs.15,000, while w900 costs approx. Rs.20,000-22,000)
Hope i've helped...
