Actually,I'm still in learning progress in using Nokia 60 siries model especially my Nokia 3250.Maybe you will face the same problem as I face if you're new but don't worry,there are contai useful guide book in sales package when you are about to buying Nokia 3250.
Good News For Nokia 3250 Users
The only one problem facin by Nokia 3250 users is that when the phone hang for more than one minute when sending message. For that reason, all current used applications like music player, will be stop for a while waiting for the massege is sending. This is botherd when used the phone application. But rcently, Nokia has launched a software, special to solve the Nokia 3250's hang problem when sending message. The software is SMS Accelerator. Download this software to you Nokia 3250 via USB cable, bluetooth or card reader. And enjoy yor phone function meanwhile message to other. The software size is just 2.9 KB. Here is the link to install the software.

Formating Memory Phone & Card

For the first time,I cannot find where the memory card slot were placed.But when I reffered to the guide book,I'd finally found where the memory card were placed.It is supported Hot Swap Slot which is mean you don't need to switch the phone off to removed the memory card.To rmoved the memory card,just press the power button (don't hold,just press once) and select removed memory card,then press ok after you removed the memory card.
To check memory card memory,go to Menu>Organizer>Memory Card>Memory Detail.
Warning:Don't format the memory card if it's contain important data such as picture,track,video or other data.Formatted it make all memory or data lost.Bur sometime you'll need to formartted it if has a problem such as infected by viruses, always hang because of unmanaged memory files or other reason.But if you are still want to format the memory card, you need to save the data in the computer.But I still didn't try to formating the memory card myself like this.

At the time just recent I'm using Nokia 3250, the phone always hang when I'm proceed to menu or when I'm sending a message especially when the message contain nore than 500 message (my inbox ever reach to 1500 message).sometime also,the phone can atoumatically switch off even I didn't did so.It the problems I'd face at that time.
Finally,I try to format the phone memory by press *#7370# (the battery must be full to operate it) .It is work!The phone finally not hang as always happen.But remember to back-up the phone memory to memory card before formatting the phone memory.After you finish formatted,you'll see the phone back to the original setting like the first time you switch the phone on after buying, and all data saved were lost/formatted.Then you back-up back the phone memory from memory dard to phone memory to save back the phone data such as contac number,messages or other data saved on the phone.Finally your phone formatted and will not hang as usual.But you need to change the setting back if you desired to make operate in original setting before formating the memory card.

Bluetooth is a function to share or send files to other devices.It can send files in 10 metre range.Usually,bluetooth is using when the other devices that might received bluetooth files is nearby.Bluetooth also practical to use when sending a large files such as video.It is because, sending through MMS has a limited file size that can be send (depend on local network service provider).
You also can send several files at one time by mark all the files that you want to send,then send it to the other devices.Even to complete sending the file in so long length time,the files is just send once.


Currently,there are no specific software that officially announced by Nokia Corporation for Nokia 3250.It is maybe will coming soon for most siutable software designely for Nokia 3250.But there are some software maybe compatible with Nokia 3250.Go All About SymbianWebsite if you want to buy or trying download software of Nokia 3250.But remeber while installing the software, removed the software that contain warning when installing the software that harmful to the phone.Only try the software taht can view the detail and compatible with the phone.
But there is another good software that usable to your phone. The software you can got it from
Nokia CD-ROM included in Nokia 3250 sales packages. The CD contains software like video and image converter,Nokia PC suite. Nokia video converter is useful when you need to insert another video format onto Nokia 3250. For example, I convert some awesome punk music videos into my nokia 3250. It is because the original format of the videos is unreadable in my Nokia 3250 and need to convert to change the format into 3GP that support by the phone.
But before you can use some of the softwares, you need to install the software uttilities to your PC into my Nokia 3250.
