i just hard reset my 3250. but it didn't go back like the first time i got it. i mean the setting of the menu is still the same(my setting before the hard reset) and some app that i've installed on the 'C' drive still exist. i used to have 6600, when i did the hard reset, it cleared all the setting and also all the app(back to the factory setting). i wonder if there is any difference between the symbian 3rd and the 2nd edition in terms of hard resetting...
or did i do something wrong..hmmm...i input the *#7780#..
can anybody help me on this...
hey man the phone battery went dead jus 14-15 hours after full recharge. i used it a max ov lyk 45mins continous use. n dat also only on msging n gallery (pics only). i didnt even play ne songs or nethn.i recharged agan few hrs ago n again the phone has only 2 out ov 7 points left. the recharge is also taking unusually long.... a lil over 4 hrs!!! i think the sides are the part that feel warmest. whats going on????
i used this code u said : *#92702689#. all my phone told me is the life timer n nuthin else... n oh ya btw since ive upgraded, ive noticed that my cells back cover feels warmer than usual. its the battery thats gettin hot. i jus fully recharged abt 9 hrs ago n used it very little bt still its nw on only 3 outa 7 points.
both d old version and new 3250 supports 2GB microSD. my cousin has a 2GB in his 3250 (first edition) and it works 100% with no probs at all. (dat's juz a mrktng move of nokia, to prolong 3250 popularity and perhaps to give em time b4 they release N30?! who knows... Nseries model now with a twist! dat's 1 form factor currently Nseries does not hav.. 3G, autofocus at least 3.2mpx, QVGA vid recording, support for SDHC, wow!). nwey, here's d link dat all 3250 are compatible with 2GB:
just click 'data' and hit 'memory cards'
dat's normal, coz 3250 has a 2mpx CMOS sensor (1600x1200) against 6600s 0.3mpx (640x480) resolution CMOS sensor too. and besides even some stand alone digicams hav d said issues about "noise" especially in low lyt cndtns and a high ISO is used (except again, fuji finepix digicams).. yup, u can upgrade ur firmware thru authorized srvce ctrs for free for 1 yr or by usin NSU (forever, as long as new firmwares r released) which cn b dwnloded here:
current 4.14 firmware only hav a very little improvement on noise reduction (or i guess, nothin at all..) vs first FW 3.18. besides, 3250 is marketed by nokia as a music phone, so i guess dey won't make imaging features of dis device on par with image/video centric device such as N73 etc with future firmware upgrades..
my 3250 came with a 512mb micro sd.would there be any problem if I use a 2gb card???. this is not the music express edition, its the black one. Thanx
@ MZN and VIPERKID,

*#7370# = soft format phone memory
*#7780# = hard format phone memory (kinda like u used WDCLEAR utility or write zeros on a PC hard disk to fix corrupted MBR [master boot record])..
btw, u can try to type "*#92702689#" wyl on standby. therein u cn view d S/N n d IMEI as well as d life timer, d date d phone left d factory n d date it was purchased. f ur phone has been repaired d date of d repair is also indicated. u will need to turn d phone off to exit this menu or simply require you to press ok (if available). ciao!
whats da diff b/w *#7370# n *#7780#? wen i put them in the phone says the same thing for both which is "reset phone to default settings? phone will restart"
i guess u hav to try this instead. first, perform a hard format (*#7780#) [b sure u hav backed up all ur contacts, msgs, calendar entries, etc and everything on d phone mem], if d problem persists, format ur microSD once again. hop dat works.. good luck!
to save u trouble here the list that Viperkid posted earlier:
here r a list of fixed bugs against previous firmwares prior 4.14:
-white balance effect in camera fixed (except 3.18)
-smoother zoom in video and still modes
-no more delayed audio in videos (against 3.18/21. audio when playing videos now syncs correctly
-new theme "together" wil b installed
-no need for sms accelerator
-backup in mem. card wil work (unlike in 3.18) function in organiser > mem card > backup mem...
-bigger font in msgs plus background image does not get distorted anymore when reading long msgs
plus overall faster performance and reliability! at d end of d day, its ur call whether u want to upd8 it or not. =)
yes it does take long to send a text msg. to fix this either download "sms accelerator" from http://europe.nokia.com/A4151103 or directly to ur cell. to download to cell go to "services" then to applications. there ull find sms accelerator. but its better if u upgrade ur firmware (thats the phone software). the new version is 4.14. to check urs, type in standby mode *#0000#
the new firmware is much beta. a list of fixd stuff is given a few pages back by Viperkid. check it out.
i was just wondering, whether anyone else's nokia 3250 takes 3 and a half minutes to send a normal text?
i used my cell to format n i did reset by *#7370#.bt the prob occured after that. shud i try resetting again?
theres no difference b/w those 2. its just that nokia started supplyin 1gb microSD n gave 2gb support in the music edition, n called it the xpressmusik version. n ya they also introduced a new cassing, the white and orange one.
what is the difference between n3250 and n3250 music edition is there any price difference....if now than wot is the difference b/w these two sets
did u use ur 3250 or windows based PC to format ur microSD? if u used d latter then, i guess u hav to format it again using 3250. hav u tried to reset ur phone mem by pressing *#7370#? if not, its worth d try...
no actually i formatted my card.... n i tried restartin cell 3 times. each time i do everythin seems normal but wen i update the library, same thing happens again. what if i reset my phone? it just restores the orignal settings so i dont think it'll help....
yup, u can upgrade a N80 to b a N80IE usin d NSU. nokia juz recently allowed normal N80s to be N80ie juz by upgrading d firmware!
but take note dat not every N80 variant are now able to upgrade to b IE. u can check ur variant on d back of d phone, after removin d battery and type it here to check if u can update to IE.
N80ie firmware version is:
if u live here in d Philippines, d previously released 3250 comes with 512mb and d new one comes with 1GB (at nokia stores and authorized distributors). but in d end it really depends on ur area..
try to switch it off and on again. oh yeah, hav u changed ur directory where u saved ur music files (mp3s, eAACs, etc.) in d microSD? if yes, then, place it back where u remember where it was like "microSD/sound clips/digital sounds"
