Nokia 3250 Review

Once you get into the phonebook, simply write theinitials of the last or the first name you are looking for. The phonethen adjusts selection on its own.


All contacts from the phonebook can be dialed by voice. You do not needto make a record of your own voice tag as Nokia 3250 recognizes anyvoice. This application is spectacular, indeed. When you press therespective key and pronounce the name of the person you want to call,the phone first shows the person, then reads their name with a mechanicvoice and eventually starts to dial the number marked as default. Eachphone number in the phonebook can also be assigned a shortcut key.

Callers are specified by images, while contact groups are filtered by ringing melodies. Reverse organization is not possible.

Filing name contacts into groups helps you filter calls using ringingprofiles. Nokia 3250 has six standard ringing profiles and one specialringing profile to use in offline mode. More profiles can beadditionally created. Within each profile you can set up a specialringtone for each of the following fields: calls, messages, emails andchat. Volume, vibration, keypad sounds and filters are setup here aswell. You can even set the phone to alert you about incoming calls bypronouncing the name of the caller (of course, if it's a part of thephonebook). This way you know who is calling you without even having tolook at the handset. In fact, this explains to a certain extent why thephone lacks the option of specifying callers by ringing melodies.

No significant modifications are visible in the message application,either. When you write SMS, MMS, emails and instant messages you canuse T9 dictionary to insert text faster. Images attached to MMS can beautomatically reduced to the size suitable for a multimedia message.
Email account works with SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 protocols. It firstdownloads message headings through POP3. To download an entire messageyou have to first mark its heading.

As you can see, Nokia 3250 is pretty similar to all other devices ofthe Series 60. The new 9.1 version of the Symbian OS brings very fewmodifications. The calendar, the task organizer and the notesapplications have not undergone any changes.

Nokia 3250's equipment also includes a calculator, measure converter and a clock. Nokia 3250's alarm clock is not repeated.

Unlike previous models of the same manufacturer, however, Nokia 3250 does not feature the standard Wallet function anymore.
Nokia opens WAP and internet HTML and XHTML pages using a browser of itown in several sequent models now. No change in Nokia 3250. No matterhow simple the program pretends to be, it offers all basic browseroptions; for example, proper page display, support of simpler javascripts, and transferred data counter.

Data are transferred through Bluetooth (built-in the phone) or througha USB cable (enclosed in the delivery pack). Nokia 3250 supports USBMass Storage which makes transfers smooth and easy. The phone does notoffer infrared port. In fact, it has been some time already since Nokiastopped implementing infrared port in its smartphones.

If you do not make do with closed space, make use of Nokia 3250'smobile data transfers backed up by GPRS Class 10 and EDGE - also Class10. Besides the handset itself, in the delivery pack you will also findan installation CD with a manual of Nokia 3250's features, as well asthe PC Suite program, whose up-to-date version is available free on theNokia website.

Nokia 3250's main, but still indirect competitor is Sony Ericsson W800.The real fight will start once the expected Sony Ericsson W950 hits themarket. Sony Ericsson maintains its leading position in terms of sound,reproduction quality, earphones quality, and music player options.What's more, W800's memory card has 4 times bigger capacity than theone of Nokia 3250, and its Memory Stick Pro Duo format is moreextensive than Nokia's microSD.
