Hello all, ive been having loads of problems with my Nokia 3250 ever since ive had it. most prominently the big freeze after sending text messages, the only way i found to stop it temporarily was to do a quick format. however after sending/recieving about 350 texts this started again. im not the only one either, two other people i know have been having exactly the same problem.

ive just had a replacement 3250 given to me via the o2 shop as my old one totally borked, nothing on the screen so i assume they couldnt fix it. now, firstly, its not recognising my memory card at all, now i havent tried it in another phone so it mught just be the card is nackered. secondly, i am unable to send text messages, i just get a ntification after about 20 seconds saying "unable to send message to X" they just sit in the outbox as failed or deferred.

does anyone know how to alleviate this problem?

***EDIT***

If you find that you cant send a message its because the message centre number in your messaging settings is wrong. To fix this follow these instructions:

Go to messaging > Options > Settings > Text Message > Message Centre > SIM msg. centre

in here you need to make sure the message centre number is +447802000332

Maybe is like that, or is a firmware issue. But is like the old 3230! And 3250 is the line of evolution of 3230, so... should be like that.

i just had the same problem the other week, if its still within the 1 years manufacturers warranty then your retailer should send it back and get it fixed or replaced for free.

i dont think there is a way around this mate, its just the way it is on every 3250 i have seen/used.


i still have an overlying problem since i have recieved my new replacement. my micro sd memory card will not work in my 3250. i have formatted it using a card reader, using the 3 different file types, FAT, FAT32 and NTFS but my phone still wont pick it up. ive tried it in my mates phone and it works ok, but his still didnt work in mine. i find it hard to beleive that this brand new phone wont read any memory card! but if i cant fix it within the next few days then its going back to the shop.

anyone have any ideas?

To have a Virus on your phone You must agree with the installation... is like that on Symbian devices. So, is not a mandatory thing!
