Nokia 7250i Review
Review: August 2003. Updated July 2004.
The Nokia 7250i is an upgraded version of the Nokia
7250. It offers XHTML support for a better mobile browsing experience,
plus improved camera functions, enhanced MMS, and comes in a new range
of colours. The built-in camera offers functions like zoom, contrast
adjustment, slideshow, and a night mode for low-light conditions. The
image editor enables you to add text, frames, and clip art images. Enhanced
MMS offers delivery reports for sent messages, advanced group messaging
features, and image scaling to reduce message size. "Portrait image
caller ID" means you have the option of seeing a pre-set picture of
the person who's calling you.
Like the 7250, the Nokia 7250i incorporates an integrated digital camera
and offers most feature that people will want: colour display, polyphonic
ringtones, a stereo FM radio and triple band, as well as Java
capability. However, there is no getting away from the fact that the
7250i has a poor colour display, a poor quality camera and various reliability
problems. A much better option is the newer Nokia
Features of the Nokia 7250i include:
- WAP 1.2.1, GPRS
- High Speed Data (HSCSD) - max 43.2 kilobits per second
- MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service)
- Downloadable Java applications

- Polyphonic ringtones (MIDI format)
- 3.5 Mbytes shared memory
- Integrated stereo FM radio
- Integrated handsfree speaker
- Changeable x-press on covers
- Infra-red and cable connections
- Downloadable colour wallpaper
- Screensaver: digital clock
- Speed dialling
- Phone book (up to 300 entries)
- 2 games (Triple Pop and Bounce)
- Clock, alarm clock, calculator, currency converter
- Size: 105 x 44 x 19 mm
- Weight: 92g
- Battery standby: 150 - 300 hours
- Battery talktime: 2 - 5 hours
- Tri band

Bought the phone only a week ago, used to have a 3410 so this is very
different, all in all its a damn good phone, looks good and the shiny
yet grainy cover is very cool!, its great to have poly tones after years
of mono ones!, the camera is good, not exactly the best in the world
but as others have pointed out its good to take pics of mates, the family
etc, you can adjust the contrast and the night mode, doesn't make a
great deal of difference in my opinion, but what the heck!. The radio
is very clear and works well with the headset provided. I like Nokia,
their phones are easy to use and not poncey like the flip phones, they
are c**p!, I will always stick with Nokia, my phone has no probs with
the wallpaper etc, its on T Mobile, does this make any difference?,
anyway, enjoying having it, the worst phone i ever had was a siemens
by the way!

Ive had my 7250i since the day it came out, as i previously owned a
7250 which got stolen and replaced by this. The ONLY glitch with this
phone is when you feel like changing your wallpaper from the Gallery
folder, the phone re-starts itself, but mine has grown out of that now.
Camera quality compared to the 7250 is improved but could be better.
I was pleased to see the "Night Mode" function on the camera which acts
as a kind of digital flash. ONE other thing, which is with all Nokia
phones is that they do not have the ability to send photos via infra-red,
but thats no biggy. Cant complain with the Radio or Games or any other
features. Its a great phone. Best Nokia ive owned so far.

Well to be very honest at first I thought this was a great phone, but
after about a few minutes of playing with it (yes the phone, nothing
else!) I was a little disappointed. The menu was just like my 7210 which
was a good thing and everything was going well to I used the camera.
It took a picture and was very disappointed with the quality, then I
noticed it was on the lowest mode so I put it up to the maximum and
took a picture. The quality was better but still VERY poor. The main
reason I bought this phone was for it's camera, so I took it back. A
good phone for features, but let down with a very poor quality camera.

I HATE NOKIA!! Why o why do they only hav 4096 colours???? And 4 bit
ringtones???? All the latest models have 65,000+ colours and 40 or 16
bit ringtones! I've had 4 nokia color fones in the past and every one
of them has sucked! MAYBE if they start making fones with : 40 bit polyphonic

The phone is great.Yeah the camera may not be that good, but my point
is that 7250i is balanced. A 3650 doesn't have a radio and is TERRIBLY
HUGE,a 6610 doesn't have a camera and has low memory, so what do you
have? Of course, a Nokia 7250i,which has everything you want(well,except
the bluetooth).It is small,has built in camera and radio,triband,light,and
does not have an annoying keypad unlike 3650s.Also it has a strong battery.
Mine lasts up to 5 days (with abusive playing) before it turns off.
About that wallpaper-crashing thingy, all you have to do(as mentioned
on the other reviews) is go to display settings to change the background.Buy
this and youll be complete, just like me.

Nice phone, but picture messaging never works. I've had this phone for
about 6 months and tired 2-3 times to get vodafone live to work (by
using the web and upgrading system stuff as instructed), but never got
it to work. Everyone else i've seen with this phone (albeit about 15
30-40 yearold techno savvy experts in the industry), haven't been able
to get picture messaging working yet either. Is this a problem with
everyone who has bought this phone, or just a hangup with all Vodafone
live users. I'm trying vodafone again, as last time they changed 'security
bars' or something, but still doesn't work. Maybe its all marketing.
But as someone who designs high tech products, i kind of expected it
to work after a couple of tries.

I've got both a Nokia 7250i and a SE T610, and I have to say that the
Nokia wins the contest for me. I used to have a T68i, and various Nokias
(3210, 8210 etc.). I know the T610 has bluetooth (which is very useful
if you want it), but I wanted a phone which was quick and easy to use.
The T610 has a horrible plastic screen which seems to smear all the
time + I can't see the current time when the screen has gone into standby
mode as it's just too dark. Also I find the operating system on the
T610 slower than the 7250i. I'm much happier with the 7250i - ok screen
isn't as big as the T610, but the 7250i camera is good enough for me
as I've got a digital camera if I want to take quality shots in anycase!
7250i has a speakerphone, which is great - only thing is that when using
the phone in my in-car holder, the speakerphone could be a little bit
louder for better hearing when in the car, and the display would be
stunning if more than 4096 colours - but apart from that, a great litt

I've had this phone for nearly a month now. It is the best phone i have
ever used (except sharp phones-but there only on vodafone)I got it dead
cheap in the after xmas sale on payg on the orange website but it took
ages to deliver. I'm so glad i did'nt order it on xmas eve and payed
way more. I had the wallpaper fault but it has stopped now. Picture
quality is great in day but is no good at night. But what do you expect
from a phone, my digital camera is for pictures, the phones camera is
just a gadget. It has great tones and the data cable is a must. (tip
- buy a fake one of ebay for £30 less)The fm radio is great and the
loudspeaker sounds ok. I had a choice between this and the n-gage, some
of my mates got an n-gage and now i know i made the right choice. If
anyone wants a great, easy to use, fully feaured phone (except bluetooth
& mp3) get this. PS: buy of the net, its at least £50 cheaper even after
the sales have finished.

A very poor effort from Nokia. However before I start I don't see why
people choose this phone then complain about the picture quality...
the camera is a novelty and I suggest you do your research before purchasing
a mobile. The main problem with this phone is the resetting of the handset
when trying to set a photo as the wallpaper. A simple cure for this
is to reset the time on the clock. The next time the phone is turned
off/on this function should work correctly. If you are wanting to purchase
this phone, think again. Although it looks good on paper there are much
better handsets available for your money. There is no software update
currently available to fix the problems people seem to be having...
but if your hearts set on this mobile; I suggest T-mobile. Their versions
of this Nokia actually seem to be fault free.

The nokia 7250i is an outstanding phone, with a total of 4 mb memory,
integrated digital camera, integrated fm radio and much more. The camera
quality is good for a phone, keeping in minds the camera is small compared
to good quality digital cameras which are sometimes much bigger than
the nokia 7250i itself. The menu is simple and you have the choice to
change the layout from a list to grid aswell. The night mode in the
camera i think is amazing. Of course you need some light for it to work
but it does really work. The quality is not outstanding but if you wanted
to quickly take a photo of something in the dark then it would work.
Once the photos are on a computer the quality is much better aswell,
if you visit http://www.mobile-review.com/review/nokia-7250-en.shtml
you can see photos taken by the 7250. The radio is good, just plug in
the headset, tune it to the station you want and you are listening to
the radio, you even have the option to listen to the radion on loudspea
ker. The phone supports java so you are easily able to download games
and apps. Another great feature added is the image editor., In the gallery
when you open a photo you have the option 'edit imgae' in this option
you can add text to pictures, clip art and put frames around your pictures
aswell. The phone has advanced mms features, photo phonebook so when
some one phones you you can see the picture of them appear on your screen
and much much more. Overall an outstanding phone :)

Why are so many people complaining? The nokia 7250i is a great phone.
The camera quality is excelent for a phone and it looks great. The phone
price has dropped a lot and at The Link it's only £170 on Orange. The
only problem I have had with mine is that it keeps crashing when trying
to change the wallpaper. This can be avoided by going to SETTINGS then
DISPLAY SETTINGS and changing it from there but I sometimes forget that
and make it crash. Reception is very good and there is an intergrated
loudspeaker so you can hear the person you're talking to without having
the phone right next to your ear. Overall a very good phone with very

Great phone, I have a 7210 also and this is quite an improvement. The
new chunky buttons make txt messages easier and the camera is fast and

better sound and screen but overall this is the best of the current
phones. Special mention must go to the menu system which is even better
than other previous nokia phones!

This phone is fantastic, I've only had it for a few days now but it's
honestly the best phone ever. The phones features are all good with
a quality radio and a great layout for the buttons. The camera is pretty
good too, despite what others think it can take descent pictures even
in low light conditions. Also nokia has lived up to its reputations
for easy used menus and features once more making this phone simple
to pick up and use right from the start. With all the fabulous features
of this phone the great colour screen and many options for customising
it make it a must have. Other reviewers have put this phone down for
having a lower resolution screen but I found it fine, if u want a camera
buy a camera, not a phone. Over all this phone is amazing in my opinion,
its easy to use, looks cool and has a wicked menu system. This phone
really is a great buy if u shop around for the right price and I've
only found two bad points to it. The side volume buttons are a little
hard to use at first and the problem with setting the wallpapers (the
one where it crashes), you get used to the volume buttons and by setting
the wallpaper through the settings menu you can avoid the problem. So
there you have it the nokia 7250i, a new, exciting and quality product
from the nokia boffins which you HAVE to look into if considering a
new mobile. 10/10

For all the people complaining about the wallpaper problem here is the
solution. The phone hangs if you select the set as wallpaper option
directly from the photo just taken. It does not hang if you select the
set as wallpaper option after viewing a photo in the gallery option
or by going to settings then display settings then wallpaper then change
image. There you go. Two solutions and both work fine. It will only
take you 20secs longer and there are no problems doing it either of
these two ways.

I have just had this phone stolen off me buy someone, and i miss this

changing the wallpaper but it was only because the battery was low!
Other than that it is great! I have wanted it for ages as when the 7210
came out i had a great liking for that! But the 7250i is amazing! Why
are you all complaining about the camera? I think it is very good to
what i have seen! The camera is great, you dont have to hold it for
ages in one place to make sure you dont get a blurred photo like the
Sharp GX10i! I think the night mode is great as it comes out fantastic
for nights on the town! It has come in very good use! The radio is good
too its better than nothing! Well altogether i love it and i am happy
with it. I know that there will be something even better than it but
until then i will jus have to buy another 7250i!

This phone is excellent, no faults at all. It has high battery life,
excellent features and does everything a phone should do. For those
moaning about the camera quality, I think it's fantastic. There are
lots of options with it so you can edit, save or send. The people who
moan don't know what they're saying. Just because it has fewer colour
pixels than the Samsung, doesn't mean it's bad, in fact it looks just
as good. I've been reading a lot about people who are saying that the
phone goes off or something when they try to set their wallpaper. I
have a simple solution. You DO NOT go to the GALLERY menu, then click
VIEW FOLDERS, then PHOTO's (or GRAPHICS) and then select a picture to
have as a wallpaper. Instead, if you do the following, I can guarantee
that your phone won't crash or whatever. Select SETTINGS from the main
menu. Scroll to DISPLAY SETTINGs, then click on WALLPAPER, then CHANGE
IMAGE, then click on either PHOTOS or GRAPHICS (wherever your desired
image is) and then when your image is up, select OPTIONS and finally
SET AS WALLPAPER. Easy as that! No more problems! The phone has incredible
features and is worth its money. You won't be disappointed. To get all
your features working, just ring your Network Provider customer service
and activate everything, like Picture Messaging and stuff - EASY! The
phone isn't heavy or bulky, and there are more features than the 7250.
You can have you menu as a grid, have font size in a text smaller, edit
pictures better. So if you're deciding between a 7250 and a 7250i, definitely
get the 7250i. If you're thinking between a Samsung V200 or the new
E200 (I think!), then go for Nokia, they're the best. I've tried the
Samsungs and the menu's are hard, frustrating and not really worth it.
Go for the Nokia 7250i - an outstanding mobile phone for anyone cos
it's so easy to use! :P

I still own a 7110e. Stop laughing it is still a great phone, but why?
Well you can actually use it. With Nokia things are so simple. Even
now my 7110 allows me to complete functions that more modern phones
from other brands take ages to do, if you can figure it out in the first
place. (Ever used a Motorola?) I recently tested the 7250i and took
to it like a duck to water. Ok, picture quality ain't great, but how
many pictures does everyone send? I'm sure a shot from the 7250i will
get the point across to whoever you send the pic to. To those stuggleing
with the resetting when changing wallpaper, read the previous postings,
you can get around it. As for the ringtones, my 7110 doesn't have poly,
but so long as I can find the damn thing how much does it really matter.

for a mobile phone, the camera is good enough. i like it. it works fast,
you just press the up arraw and capture. takes a second. once you transfer
the images to your computer it look even better, obviously we aint talking
amazing quality here, but good enough to put on a website or email.
i havent got the data cable yet, so i had to email an image to myself
to check the quality. - screen. big and clear. i like it. - looks. sexy
little thing, nice and solid looking, im not a fan of flip phones. only
thing i dont like is that i ordered 'imperfect blue' colour but it looks
more purple than blue. anyway, covers are cheap so its ok. - radio.
loud and clear, i like the fact i can use the radio as an alarm. - put
little portrait pics of your friends by their names so when they call,
you remember who it is. trust me, it happens. i wont bother going ito
the rest, ringtone, wap, wallpapers bla bla bla, you know the score,
its all same same. CONS: - today is the second day im using it and the
dreaded wallpaper crash problem has come to haunt me. as i was changing
the wallpaper, the phone crashed. it kept happening and later on it
sorted itself out. the trick is to do it some other way, like go to
settings>display settings> wallpaper. and do it from there. but that
aint good enough for me, so i called for a exchange and i have a replacement
on the way, i aint taking any risks. - volume buttons. i dont know what
nokia designers were thinking. whether they thought this design is sexy,
sleak or just cool because its different, but its terrible. i use the
volume button alot, switching from headset, to loudspeaker, to radio,
etc, i tend to adjust volume almost everyday and the volume buttons
on the side of the phone are c##p. their not even buttons, just a little
piece of plastic that slightly sticks out of the phone and i find myself
having to use my NAIL to adjust the volume most of the time. stick to
the reliable dual buttons nokia. and thats about it. cant fault it much
more than that. i do like this phone and am happy i got it. its a very
good all rounder, but just falls short of a 5 star for me. nokia can
improve on the 7250i. 4 stars from me. peace

I traded in my new Nokia 7250i for a Sony Ericsson T610 and have never
looked back. Only things I miss are the speakerphone and the radio (a
little bit). After the initial novelty value, the wow-factor wore off
quickly. Friends and family loved it but I soon got bored and hit its
limitations quite quickly. The T610 is streets ahead with menu design
and the ergonomics of the joystick control. 4096 colours just doesn't
cut it anymore. The speakerphone used in radio mode is pretty cool,
but no bluetooth and the Nokia Suite software's operation with cable
and infrared is erratic. The cover/shell creaked after a couple of weeks.
Quality? I think not. Now I know why people call Nokias boring. They
just lack soul. They might be reliable and easy to use but they are
just the safe option for plebs. Anyone with character will want a phone
with attitude. Just like enthusiasts will buy a flawed Italian car for
its character, people who want a phone to reflect their adventurous
approach t o life will buy a phone like the Sony Ericsson T610. It has
proper contact management with multiple numbers per contact and an email
address: no more repetition in your address book. Be average and buy
this nondescript, adequately functional little lump or strike out and
get a T610 with twice the features of the 7250i and four times the excitiment
of discovering its full range of abilities.

only to receive denial after denial,that there is a problem. although
its not a major problem, it is a problem none the less. they have no
plans to sort this out because they dont think there is a problem so
software upgrades are out the window. firmware also. ive told them of
the web reviews, stating all these people cant be wrong, again, it fell
on deaf ears. i think all us dissapointed customers should plan a day
of action, and converge on there huntingdon dopot. anyone interested

You guys are crazy. Ok, first of all the Nokia 7250i may have a few
faults, i have tested 3, however, i have also tried many other colour
phones and have found many more. Alot of you seem to like the samsungs,
well i tell you what they actually have ALOT more errors that the semi-native
Nokia's. Now as for screen quality, ITS A DAMN MOBILE PHONE, you cant
make a silk purse of pigs ear, CHRIST. Once again the same comment for
the camera. You look at any 'Digital camera' (as you people claim this
to be) they are huge. You get a 'good quality' one, and they are large
in size. Any person with their brain switched on would realise that
beacuse the phones are small that the parts are not going to be as good
as a USD$8,000 camera or a USD$12,000 TV entertainment system. You people
have to understand that these phones are small and hard to make. So
i conclude with this, The Nokia 7250 is a fantastic phone with great
features. I have also discovered a fix for the wallpaper 'error' anyway.
You just have to disable the wallpaper from within the gallery menu
and then activate a new wall paper, also within the gallery. The phones
has many useful features, an awesome phone through my eyes, they best
ive seen and used.

(2 motorolas, 2 siemens, 1 samsung an 4 nokias) I think every review
should start with that, the previous phone owned cos it seens that some
comments are very harsh an i wonder if some come from people who are
accustomed to a particular brand/os. Have just upgraded through o2 from
samsung t100 and am so pleased to have got back that great nokia user
friendliness that no other make seems 2 accomplish. The main reason
you've got a phone in the first place is to make calls and send texts.
Nokia phones are arguably the best at that, everything else is a bonus!
So there are phones with a slightly better camera than this but the
novelty soon wears off when it takes u twice as long to send an sms!
Have had the wallpaper problem but easily got round and if this is the
only prob on an otherwise top drawer bit of kit, than compared to all
other phones i've owned it's irrelevant to my daily use. that has to
be the only reason i've not given 5stars. The handset is by no means
perfect but i think it's one of the best u can get at the moment.

Ive never purchased a nokia as Every bugger else has one and so I have
tried to avoid them. Anyway, I ended up chosing the Nokia 7250i as it
was the only camra phone on offer for free so that must say something!
Truth be told, I was happy with it at first. the nokia menu system does
make a lot of sense and is quick to pick up. I didnt like the way that
it only shows a couple of menu items on the screen sometimes when clearly
the list could be shown more clearly. Arghh, 2 days on and its started
crashing on me!!! Normally when trying to set a picture to wallpaper.
I did have this problem at first but I put it down to a poor charged
battery so as my battery is low I am trying to charge it up again to
see if it will rectify this crashing error. Picture quality is 24 bit
but I cant pay 50 quid for a lead to connect it to my computer so Ill
never know what they are like unless I email them from my phone. True,
I would like 40 polyphonic channels and billion colour display. saying
that ... I would need to spend money, this one is free and for god sake
its just a phone! 3 stars as digital camera, 5 stars for games as I
used to own a 48k spectrum and the games are comparabled to a 90's sega
or nintendo. 5 stars as a phone (ie. it has all the digits from 0 to
9 and a call button) oh and it has loudspeaker and fm radio. all for
free and 200 anytime/anynetwork minutes a month on vodaphone (30 quid
a month).... Yeah. I think thats outstanding. even if the gimicky camera
doesnt work on a low charged battery. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU LOT WANT?

Absolutely poor in so many aspects. It feels like Nokia needs to improve
it's technology. Many people were turned on by the neat Nokia Black
& White Phones which were nice but Nokia is getting worse and worse
with the modern phones. Firstly, the biggest problem camera. It is suppose
to be DIGITAL CAMERA like they advertise it a,BUT! its only 4096 colour
display! Obviously the photo qualities are HORRIBLE!! The dots that
creates the images are visible with our eyes! Secondly, Polyphonic sounds..Can't
believe Nokia still creates 4 POLY sounds when other brands like Samsung
is creating 40 POLY sound ringtones!! 4 poly sounds are just so lame
and weak! But due to many streotyped opinion of "Nokia is the best"
many people still decides not to look out side of the box and unfortunately
due to Nokia's popularity many Ringtone companys are still sticking
with 4 poly sounds for us consumers to download.. Very unfortunate when
we can have 40 polyphonic quality sounds... Next problem is that the
Nokia phones breaks down so often! Don't deny it I'm sure your Nokia
phone(Especially the colour ones) sometimes functions stragenly! The
worst factor is the cost! With the worst camera photo quality and worst
polyphonic sound quality (4poly..*not even 16 poly..)and worst Color
Display (This is not my opinion, it's a FACT, Go look at all the other
rival company's camera phone models and you'll see why and also try
reading the experts reviews and comparisons)the phone still costs heaps!
This is not even including the pricy PC Suite Cable. Overall you can
easily say it looks fine on the outside but as you get to know deeply
inside...you will see it's many negative aspect. Definately NOT recommanded.
Try looking outside of the Box. Not just "Nokia is the best in mobile"
idea which is starting to banish as Nokia continuously lacks in modern

Well Well Well...! :) Before reading this review i had a glance at others
rants on this page as well :D . First off comparing 7250i with 3650:
3650 although is the papashango of features in a phone, it's way to
big and it doesnt have a Radio, and radio being a big thing these days
in my country, i coudnt afford to miss it. and also the rate at which
the prices of the nokia 3650 are falling is a clear indication that
the "Big-brother" looks of the phone hasnt been accepted by every Tom
who's d*ic* is hairy . Some people have suggested that a T610 over a
7250i, well Firstly As.of.today it is more expensive than 7250i by Rs
2500/- ( pull out your old mobile's currency convertor :P) and it doesnt
even have a Radio ( to buy it as an accessory, you will haveto get poorer
by a few more bucks, around 2000/- INR ) Some people on this site say
that T610 picture quality is nobetter / slightly better than 7250i *******************************
well here are my 2 cents, 7250i has a really schweeet crisp display.
Other Phones like SE and Samsung seem to make using menus as hard as
rocket science, but Nokia's Layman's Menu Simply r0x! Even the Sub-menu's
are very neatly spread out and easy to remember. ( 14 - 1 -3- 4 is for
allowing/disallowing cookies . See ? :P) . The Radio Clarity and Reception
is a perfect 10ner. Some people seem to be too depressed about the polyphonic
ringtone quality, hey i dont think its bad *AT-ALL* . yes the phone
does restart when wallpapers are changed SOMETIMES. ** BUT ** this can
be easily bypassed when you do a ` 1) Go in to settings, display settings,
wallpaper, and change the picture there, it then stops it from resetting`
. The night mode in the cam is nice. The XHTML Browser renders pages
very nicely indeed. One thing i would like to mention is the overall
"speed" whilst browsing messages, text-input , opening images etc is
Really Snappy compared to the Sony-Erricson's. T610 owners seem to convey
that its a 36-24-36 , which i totally disagree. I prefer the Compact
and Slick Look of the Nokia 7250i better. as of today, i have purchase
this phone for Rs 15,000 INR with the headset. S.a.t.i.s.f.i.e.d ! =================================

Good phone, granted the camera isn't as good as the 3650, but I have
an SLR for that, and the pics are viewable on a PC, so ideal for emails
and personal websites. You can mms or email the pics too, which is handy
if you have free WAP minutes on the contract too. The wallpaper bug,
two fixes, 1) Go in to settings, display settings, wallpaper, and change
the picture there, it then stops it from resetting. or 2) Go in to settings
display settings, wallpaper, and switch the wallpaper off and on again.
Radio is good, especially being able to store stations. Mine came with
the headphones [o2 online, got it as part of an upgrade]. Glad that
the cases cover the camera [clear plastic circle] saves any worries
about lens scratches, the keys can be fiddly for a couple of days, but
I got used to them quicker than I would the 3650. Plasticky yes, but
as it's in a belt clip case most of its life not a problem. Easy connection
to my pc with the [optional] datacable, though if you're IR enabled
on the pc you 'can' do it that way, but alot easier cable wise. Overall,
a step up from my old 3330, and while the novelty of the camera might
wear off some day, still can't beat mmsing someone where you are to
meet them for lunch :-) Pleased with the phone, only the slightly less
quality camera gets it the 4 stars, but if I wanted more than just snaps,
I'd take my camera itself... G.

OK, I only got it a couple of days ago, and I'm already in love with
the functionality. But, I DO think it's overpriced. I was disappointed
the box didn't include even basic accessories, like the carrying case
or wrist-strap, that came as standard with my old 3210, years ago. Now
that I have a much more expensive phone, I view it as MORE important
that I should be able to protect it from bumps and scratches - so why
no protective case? I don't expect to have to pay extra for this! To
add insult to injury, the manual even explains how to attach the wrist-strap
that they don't supply. And no data-cable for connecting up to the PC?
That'a a blow. Car Phone Warehouse (where I got the phone) didn't have
one; neither did several other electrical retailers I visited. My other
main gripe is that again, for such an expensive phone, the overall look
and feel is, well...tacky. It's a neat design, but far too obviously
plastic - and not even a sophisticated, matt-finish plastic, like the
old 3210. This thing looks like it fell out of a Christmas cracker.
I feel they've gone for novelty over quality. They've packed loads of
features in, but at this price, I expect it to look good too. Overall:
Good phone, but not great for the money, and falls down on those finishing

I bought my Nokia 7250i several days ago and it's great. I already own

what I've been wanting for in that model (still no Bluetooth, though.
Ouch!). Night mode makes pictures clearer 20 to 50% vs. the 7250, and
all upgrades are surely welcome. I have one complaint, and take notice:
whenever I change my wallpaper at the Gallery section, the screen just
goes blank and resets itself. Try again, and get the same result. The
only time (as far as I've experimented) it goes back to 'normal' is
when you go to the Settings menu and change wallpaper in the Display
Settings sub-menu. Afterwhich when the phone is switched off and on
again it goes back to its 'abnormality.' A bug? I'm not sure, but I'll
have mine checked w/ my local Nokia-authorized dealer today (Nokia Professional).
Mind you that I have accessed various wapsites and downloaded ringtones,
graphics, and Java apps, and I think this may have something to d o
w/ it. Before I bought my unit, I was told that many cellphones (including
the 7250i, of course) are being repaired because these downloads corrupt
the unit. True or not, buyers beware. Well, at least that's my experience
anyway (my 'old' 7250 has yet to suffer from it). It's Korean-made and
comes w/ the standard one-year warranty. See you later and I'll let

of the two, but am not sure which to choose. I like this Nokia 7250i
as I've always prefered Nokia,they are much more user friendly. the
only thing that puts me off about this phone is the fact that people
are saying the picture quiality is not as good as the samsung, I don't
know what the Samsung is like so am not sure - also the Samsung does
seem to look and sound more slick. email@example.com

i've buy'd this phone a view weeks ago and my opinion is that it is
a great phone with almost al the gadgeds you whish for only one thing
it has no bleutooth and that's a bummer. the data cable that you can
connect on the nokia pop port is very expencive (in the netherlands
86 euro) a nokia infrared receaver 100 euro so data transmission is
a bit expencive will you start but the cellfone has got mms. the looks
of the phone is very nice:)

I've had the phone several days now and I'm so impressed with it. The
buttons are bigger than that of the 7210 and so it's a lot easier to
text. Although the screen resolution isn't as high spec compared to
the T610, it's still good. There are plenty of features and the built
in camera is excellent. Navigation around the features is as simplistic
as ever. I did get a T610 before this, which was a huge mistake. Fortunately
the shop allowed an exchange. I've had Nokia's since I've owned a mobile,
and there's no reason to change. Putting it simply - it's an excellent

i have been a mobile user since 1995 and i've pretty much seen its developments
throughout the years but NOTHING was like the excitement i felt when
i got this phone and the pleasure i've had using it. i've had 8 nokias
(including a 6610) and the T68i of ericsson throuout the years and with
this phone i have to say that nokia has outdone itself. has the user-friendliness
of a standard nokia, the size smaller many of the G3 phone available,
great camera features, i even found internet surfing so much faster
than most of the phones, only ericsson's T10 can compare. the radio
has pretty clear reception except when i'm inside a car with another
radio playing (which is understandable), the sound overall is a great
improvement... and with all lot more feature this phone has everything
i wanted. i always thought that nokia spread out mobile features across
different phones to get them to sell, but this phone has all the latest
features with the one exception of voice recording. gre at buy, i think
i'm going to stick to this one for awhile =p

ive had this fone for about a week now and am absolutely extatic i got
it. i had heard so many bad roumers about it but all of which are untrue.
the 4096 colour screen is fine for taking pictures because of the number
of pixels and the camera with its upgrade for this version nearly performs
to the high standards of the sharp gx10i. the only down side is that
the crapy shops r bein so stingy. they cant even give u a head set with
the fone so you can listen to music on the intergrated fm radio. instead
you have to go out and buy a speaker set for 50 quid even though uv'e
just splashed out on a 300 quid fone.

I have just got one of these new nokias. Firstly, its a pretty stylish
looking phone and all the functions are the usual, easily understandable,
nokia functions. The colour screen however, is'nt as sharp as I had
expected and when you take a picture, you do tend to think 'umm, its
ok I guess'. But wait, although the pics dont look to amazing on your
nokia screen, they do come out very clear when you send them to e-mails
ect. And you can enlarge them to a 14" computer screen almost fully
before they become pix'ally. The ring tones that come with the phone
are pretty dull, but you can download some good ones from the net. Sound
quality is fairly good, both for the radio and tones, and its more than
loud enough. One good feature is the handsfree speaker which you can
turn on when in a call or with the radio on, handy for other people
to listen in. The car charger is specific for this phone and you cant
use your old nokia chargers in the car or mains, so dont forget to get
one for the car. The head set id quite good and also stylish. It clips
round the back of your head so you dont get wires everwhere. Easy clip
on/off covers, unlike some of the older nokias. I like the feature of
being able to put a picture of the person in your phone book, instead
of just having a number and name. Appears quite good using WAP or GPRS,
and sending e-mails is childs play :) so easy ! Overall, a nice little
phone, stylish, easy to use with reasionably good quality pictures and
functions. No regreats about changing to this one. From Greg, email@example.com

update- I just purchased the phone (£275 sim free), wait for it....
all I can say is just wow, its the best phone ever, the camera is just
like the 7650/3650 which is a good thing compared to the ****** original
7250 one. the zoom feature is also great but be warned u can not zoom
While taking the photo but zoom to close up of the pic AFTER the pic
has been taken ( I was disappointed with that but thats life). The new
features such as portrait id work Very well also main new feature the
xhtml browser is just sublime. its works very well with size of the
screen pictures are bright and colourful, I have only 2 complains I
can not fathom why did nokia opt for the "old" 4096 colour screen (why
not upgrade to the 65,536 colour display) the most obvious complain
that every one is asking why o why are they still using 4 note poly
ring tone the new Samsung uses 40 note come on nokia what are u doing,
apart from that I recommend this phone to any one who like a phone for
the style and features and to those who want a phone with a xhtml browser
but do not want a brick of a phone such a the nokia 7650/3650
