This phone had lasted me a very long time and has only recently started calling for a replacement. It has quite good features, such as radio transmission, quite alot of memory space for pictures and games, and extras include the usual timer, calculator and wallet. Radio can be listened to with headphones or out loud. Mine came with two games - bounce and triple pop which are both playable if you like using your phone for games. Only downside to the phone is the camera quality has become quite blurred over time and it is hard to take decent photos.
A good value phone. The battery is still going after two years, I have not had to replace it. Stilll in great condition.

This phone is also invincible...one very early morning I wondered into the bathroom, phone in hand having just stopped the alarm. I managed (goodness knows how) to drop it down the toilet! I fished it out (yuck, luckily I hadn't used the toilet at that point) I took the battery out and left it all open to dry. 24 hours later I put it back together and it worked! Two years later is still does! what a clever phone and what a dopey owner!
This phone has a good selection of ring tones. It connects to the internet easily and has some great features.
You can download games onto it, record sound and take pictures. plenty of storgage and memory space.
The only let up is that the camera was never as clear as I would have hoped.
Having recently purchased the 7250 I fetl I should give a quick revuew as to my findings. This is a major upgrade for me having come from the 3310!
The initial impression you get is impressive as the phone has a very sleek design and is an overall attrative package. The 7250 has a good quality digital style screen which shows the picture capability I think very favourably. The button layout is pretty standard to any Nokia user with the top line consisting of an up/down/left/right main button in the centre for navigation purposes and a dual function button either side used to connect and disconnect from calls and to select menus through the various screens. This is backed up by 6 keys which deal with the numbers and also the options to get you through to the different characters etc....
On selecting the menu button you are given 15 options. The options are 1.Messages (all your texting and inbox/outbox selections, 2.Call Register (all your call histories) 3.Phone Book (self expanatory with all your options to add names and search through your contacts) 4.Profiles (set your different options for how your phone behaves) 5.Settings (set times/gates etc..) 6.Radio (listen to radio stations with the purchase of the adaptor) 7.Camera (capture those 1 off moments with a handy digital camera) 8.Gallery (view pictures and ring tones etc here) 9.Organiser (set reminders and alarms here) 10.Games (access to the games here) 11.Applications (access any applications you have) 12.Extras (the little bits like calculator etc here) 13.Connectivity (access internet here) 14.Services (get to the homepage here via WAP) 15.O2 (obviously brand specific to myself here with O2).
The phone contains all the possible options I can imagine anyone needing from a mobile. Including when your feeling bored the 2 games which i've got to say have come on a long way since the days of the 3310 when you had Snake! Now you get an option of either Bounce or Triple Pop, both looking very professional just like a computer game you'd play at home (obviously on a smaller scale). In Bounce you control a bouncy ball along levels collecting rings and various features (reminds me a little of Sonic the Hedgehog). In Triple Pop you get different coloured balls fired at you and you collect them making rows of 3 or more of the same colour to collect points.
The camera is a particularly impressive feature of this phone. This is my first phone with a camera and im very impressed with the quality you can get. You can display the pics on your phone as your main screen or even take them in to your local Boots store and get them printed out on the Kodak machine.
The only drawback ive found is the keys a smaller and being interconnected arent quite as easy to use as my previous phone.
Overall im very happy with the phone and am very happy to have upgraded to it. Can recommend wholeheartedly to potential buyers.
Nokia, previously the giant of the mobile phone industry, seem to have slightly lost their way of late - with sales slipping, and new models being received with 'mixed' reviews at best. However one phone of theirs continues to feature prominantly on all the networks (both Pay As You Go and Contract), and that is the Nokia 7250. This was one of Nokia's first ever camera phones, and amazingly, it's still one of the best. It features all the usual easy to navigate Nokia menus and features, including polyphonic tones, java games, wap, gprs, etc. The menu system works quickly and cleanly, with no lagging between options, and text messaging, as with most Nokia phones, is an absolute joy. The camera itself, which is perhaps the most prominent feature of the phone, works well, and produces acceptable pictures, although the resolution could perhaps be a little higher. You can store up to 50 or 60 pictures on the phone, and using a data cable, can have these pictures transfered for storage on your PC with minimal hassle. Battery life is good, and the quality of voice calls is superb. Add to that some sleek and stylish looks, a good size (not too big, but not too small and fiddly eiether!), and Nokia have a phone here which I'm sure will go on selling well for a long time to come.
I really like this phone as there is so much you can do with it. Firstly it looks very cool with its new design and colour screen. It has multimedia messaging, Radio which is handy when you're bored. The games come in handy for that too, which you can download using the WAP service it has. You can also download applications such as currency converters and even a TV remote! I have to say that the best feature of the phone which I use a lot is it's digital integrated camera. You can have endless fun with this and makes the phone as great as it is. A definate thumbs up!!
OK, heres the deal! I got my fone as soon as it came out on the market so it had a few teething problems at first, but now they are all sorted its a well good fone! The colour screen is really sharp and bright. compared to other phones on the market it is much superior. The radio is also a godsend! i use it everytime im out and about and the loudspeaker option even alows you to use it at parties and things. The only annoying thing is the fact that you have to have the headset plugged in when you listen to it, as this is the areal. The most amazing thing about the phone is the amount of stuff it can hold. I currently have 128 messages in my inbox alone as well as 135 polyphonic ringtones, 36 games (including fifa 2003 and splinter cell!!!!), 163 contacts (most with more than 1 number and some with home addresses and email addresses!) The in-built camera is probly the phones biggest selling point, but it isnt that good. the photo quality is below that of such phones as the 3650 but it is still cool for the size of the phone. (the 50 is double the size of the 7250 and much heavier) The battery life is quite good. i usually charge mine every night, but it will last up to about 4 days without a charge (the box says up to 10 days but i do actually use my phone!) Wap is cool, if a little slow, but thats not the phones fault! good colour sites work well on the phone. here are the menus... messages; lets you read messages in your inbox / outbox etc and create new ones phone book; shows you names / numbers stored into the phone profiles; allows you to change the volume or ring tone etc radio; set the station (NB only FM radio) camera; change picture size / quality gallery; review pictures / tones organiser; electronic diary, really handy games; download new games as well as play applications; all sorts of things, currrency converters etc extras; calculator, stopw
atch, alarm, everything connectivity; connect the fone to the computer etc services; wap my services; network dependant. Overall i would definately reccomend this phone over any other in the market. i hope this has been of help!
Why Buy the Nokia 7250? Being one of the latest camera phones on the market at the moment it seems like Nokia have finally ironed out the problems of the 7650, (i.e. the sheer size of it) to bring out this sleek, sexy little number. Price It is quite pricey at the moment, being £150 on O2 from Phones 4 U, all this meant is that my line rental is more expensive for the first 3 months as I have to pay £50 for the first 3 months. Is it Available on Pay & Go? Not yet, but if it was it would probably be a good couple of hundred quid. Hang on a few months if you can, I am sure they will bring it out eventually. Specifications Size: height 105mm, width 44mm, depth, 19mm Weight: 92g Talktime: 2 to 5 hours Standby: 150 ? 300 hours Memory Functions Store up to the following number of items in each category: Phonebook ? 300 SMS (text messages) ? 150 text or 50 picture messages Calendar ? up to 250 entries To-do-list ? up to 30 entries Features All the usual stuff (e.g. alarm clock, predictive text - i find this annoying, profiles) you can expect from Nokia, plus: Fully integrated camera (in the back of the phone this time) You can then send the pictures via the multimedia messaging, use them as wallpapers on your phone, or save them in your PC. The camera also features a timer. Multimedia messaging, e-mail pictures, sound, etc to your friends. n.b. even if they don't have a phone capable of receiving photos, they shall receive a text message telling them to log on to a website to access it. 128 pixel high resolution colour screen made up of 4096 colours. Polyphonic Ring Tones (MIDI) - 21 to choose from, or download more. Also 10 monophonic tones pre-set. A Gallery where you can store ringtones and pictures you have received. You can send and receive Business Cards, containing contact details. Games
(Triple Pop and Bounce). What no Snake as a default?! More downloadable games and other applications downloadable via JAVA. Another new JAVA application - Converter II, this is handy for converting currency, measurements, temperature, etc. Hooray, no more phoning my dad from the middle of B&Q to ask him how I convert feet into metres, etc! Access WAP services. Excellent Hands Free Set included with the phone. It features a button for answering calls, and could easily be concealed beneath your clothes. An item in the Extras section called "Wallet" where you can store your credit card details and use your phone to make purchases via the WAP browser.

A music stand is available to purchase separately which has input for external audio devices as well as your hands free set and charger. Tri-band ? EGSM 900, GSM 1800 and GSM 1900 available in Europe, Africa, Asia and America. It automatically switches between bands, haven?t tried this feature out as we have not been out of the UK since getting the phone. X-press on covers available to customise your phone. Reception The reception on this phone is outstanding, sitting at a full bar most of the time. I love this phone, it looks good, the new style of buttons is funky - 8 are kind of integrated into the black design running down the front of the phone with the other 3 in the middle. The only problem I have is when I have to scrabble around at the bottom of my handbag to find it!! The camera is great, my boyfriend was on a Stag Night at the weekend and he didn't have a camera with him. However, he managed to get a photo of the groom handcuffed to a chair. The one problem with the camera is that it doesn't have a flash, therefore you couldn't really take pictures in dark places such as clubs and some pubs. What more can I say, if you want a pho
ne that looks good and is easy to use then this is the one for you.
