I recently bought E250. First I will list Something postivie about this mobile
Have Mp3 player/FM Radio/slim beautiful look.
support for Mini SD card
Negative about this model
a )Battery life is very very poor. The problem which is applicable to every samsung mobile.
Once charged fully may last for 1 day.
b) The port provided for charging is common for FM Radio. So you cannot listen radio while you charge your mobile.
c) Voice is very poor. sometimes I have missed some calls due to its poor audibility.
Overall, I will not recommend this model due to its poor battery. because it is one of the important feature you have to look for while purchasing a mobile. Earlier I was having Nokia 6610 which gave battery time of 2 1/2 days.
I don't why samsung is not doing anything in this area(i.e improving the battery)
Well, I just bought my E250. Features are good for a not so expensive phone yet to answer your question - the bluetooth headset doesnt come for free, it is bought seperately around $50 at most.
ok i have it for sometime...
the reason i didnt go for a high end phone with high end camerais that i have a 5mp canon camera and an ipod nano
which would have become useless if u bought a real high endphone.
so i settled for this one.
pros- got all features, but of low quality.
cons - the fm does not work without earphones inserted. u cannot use fm while charging as they have a common point.
listening to fm on speakers drains the battery real fast.
amazingly, speakers are loud for Fm, but u have to insert the earhphone, but u can hear the mp3s on the speakers without inserting the earphone. but the speakers have almost no sound with mp3s. very low volume speakers.
speakers are of too low volume. u cant hear the mp3's on speaker. u HAVE to use earphones.
also music player quality cannot be compared to ipod at all. no deep bass etc.
if u use mp3 ringtones from stored mp3s, the ring is hardly audible from speakers...
ring tone is very feeble and not loud.
the display is very average. nothing sharp about it.
same for the camera and video recorder. it is only 0.3mp!!!!
all in all if u want a midlevel phone with midlevel pricing with all features in it, it is ok, with lot of compromises.
but if u want quality features as mentioned above, and u are prepared to pay 50% or 100% more, then this phone is not for u.
i got this only because otherwise my camera and ipod wud have become redundant.
i use it just a decent looking phone with the features as a bonus...
Hi I've got no comments but are interested in buying the phone. Can anybody tell me if it a good buy.
hey guys, has anyone tried the new 4gb micro sd cards that are out, does the e250 work with it?

I'm working in a cellular shop and this weekend i had 2 customers who almost killed me and said the phone is no good,the batery life does;nt last long and there is something wrong with the speaker...when you down load a song,it plays 100% but a soon you put on ring tone it takes like 5 seconds before it plays.What's wrong with it
How long did u have the fone before the battery started being poor? I've had it for a couple of weeks and haven't had any problems so far.

I bought e250 last week. It is realy nice looking and useful but the battery life is very bad. Even in a 10 min of talking the battery indicator drops almost to half. I have to recharge everyday. Also the display is not very well it should be better.
kk so i bought the phone now i have 1 question... how do i plug the phone into my comp? cause it doesn't come with a USB. we'll it SORTA does ebcause it came with a speaker box which came with a USB but the end doesn't plug into the phone. it plugs into the spear box but then there is another wire which comes off the speaker box that can go into my phone so now i am just confused... so my question is how can i plug my phone into the computer?
Hi, i have some queries regarding this phone.please reply somebody.
1.is the battery life really that much bad as many people say? suppose if i keep fm on constantly, then for how long the battery would be alive?
2.how long the battery takes to be fully charged? and during charging, can i use bluetooth function or net surfing?
3. does e250 have any usb port connectivity option and video player?
4. is the EDGE in e250 of highest speed(ie 236.8kbps) or less than that?
people using the phone and aware of the answers of my queries please reply as i really like this phone but wont buy if battery lasts less than a day.
hi i was just wondering how big the biggest card u can put into this phone is, because some people say 1 gig some say 2 gigs. I bought this phone yesterday and want to buy a card for it.
