It is a very good phone. I bought this second hand 8250 for only RM100 in exchange for trading my old 3315. It has been 2 months now and I don't face any problems at all. It is the best phone with great design. (read more)

This phone is simply amazing. I have had my Nokia 8250 for over 3 years now and I haven't had a major problem what so ever. The battery life is still amazing and it's going strong!
This is probably the best non-colour screen phone ever made. The buttons are so soft and make browsing the menu an easy task. Of course this is an outdated model now but I can't ask for anything more from it. It continues to serve me well. I use the phone about 2-3 hours a day and send over 20 sms's a day. Never...

I bought the Nokia 8250 mobile phone simply for its design and shape.The 'butterfly' style keypad is unique and cute and the blue display screen...MARVELLOUS.I would say this was the phone that really marvelled everyone when it was released.Compared to the predecessor,the Nokia8210,this is a much solid phone and it's really nice.Yes,outdated now compared to MMS etc,but this phone certainly provided me with the best moments.Very nice and worth it.I love it!

Like Sandra my Nokia 8250 Mobile Phone has locked up on 6. Initially tried their "support" and "customer service" via the Net - After filling in their support form it bounced advising the address didn't exist! Same result from customer service!!
Phoned Nokia and the support people are quite unhelpful and deny there's a problem despite referring to web sites that describe "freezing", "locked on 6, etc.

If you are about to buy a Nokia 8250 now then it wouldn't be a bad choice as you could probably get one for about $300-$400. If you don't mind buying a second hand phone then I would consider you look for a Nokia 6610/7210 which will cost you around $450. Then again if you like the looks of a phone and not the features then the Nokia 8250 would be a good choice. (read more)

The N8250 is probably one of the best cell phones before the mms era. It nearly has all of the basic nokia cell phone features. It has the size, great backlights, style and useful features.
The N8250 is for the cell phone users who prefer style, size and basic features. (read more)

Nice design but featurewise, not that impressive. If you compare this phone with Nokia 3310, the 3310 have better feature; longer sms supported, sms template, able to assign a ringtone to a phone number beside caller group, newer games and a lot cheaper. Besides 8250 is undoubtly small and sleek, the only advantage compared to 3310 is the infra-red. I would say, this handphone is not a value for money. You are actually buying for its design not functionality. (read more)

This phone is my third. I have had one from the 5*** series, one 3310 and finally a 8250.
I decided to buy it because I fell for its design, size and the fact that it has a composer feature.
I must admit that this is a phone for "adults" - by this I mean, it is for people who are not fussy about their mobiles or aren't looking at making the most of their mobile experience.
For example, I like SMS-ing friends. With 3310, I could just pick any of the readily available smiley's to add to the... (read more)

I have used numerous mobile phones- ranging from Ericsson (I love that phone, GH688- being my first mobile and all; but it got dated after a while) to Siemens to Nokia to Motorola and now, back to Nokia. I like buying phones as and when there's a good model at a good price; and then trading 'em in when there are better mobiles. Anyway, after going a full cycle and being satisfied with all my mobiles except for the last one (Motorola C333- the internal battery sucks big time!), I now find... (read more)

My 8250 recently infected a virus. It caused the top of the screen to keep apearing the "fax", "O_O" and "e" which blocked from displaying the time. This is very irritating. I suspect this virus is sent by the phone stall or other people that have nothing better to do. My friend told me that to erase this virus, at least have to spend USD10 to solve it. damn it.

The 8250 is a load of rubbish it is a complete waste of money and your best of buying a piece of card board and cutting out a phone shape. It would work better than the 8250.

I know a lot of people have been bagging this Nokia 8250 mobile phone out due to freezing problems and blah blah blah. I have had absolutely no problems with mine. It has been faultless. Yes sometimes after typing an sms, it will 'freeze' for a brief moment, but then it gets itself sorted and moves to the next screen. All it takes is a bit of patience. I think sometimes people expect phones to be perfect. Now what technology in this day and age has a perfect operating record? The 8250 is a... (read more)

I got the Nolia 8250 mobile phone about 3 months ago, and so far no problems. It hasn't locked up once, battery performance is good though not as long lasting as the old 3310 I had earlier. I like the keypad, it's very easy to send SMS since the keys are very solid and shaped just right. It's also a very stylish phone but a lot of people seem to have it around town these days. My only grouse is the silver casing gets easily chipped causing it to lose paint and leave white spots. I have been... (read more)

The Nokia 8250 mobile phone is neatly designed to have that classy and sexy look, which caught my attention to it. Plus, there's the deep blue, pool-color backlight that further attracted me because you don't see that many Nokia phones nowadays that have that kind of blue backlights. And it does catches people's attention to you (alright, to the phone). Other than that the phone has downloadable profiles, easy touch keypads, and very light weight. Surely you can endure the catchy price to... (read more)

The Nokia 8250 is a really good looking mobile phone. The blue screen is unlike any I have seen. A much nicer colour than that of the 8850 or 8310. The features are very similar to the 8210 but screensavers, chat and predictive text in calendar are new. The main reason for buying this phone would be to stand out because almost nobody has one. Hardly anybody knows what it is. Unfortunately some people may mistake it for an 8210. Anyone really interested in phones will be impressed. The silver... (read more)

Brilliant effort by Nokia, the 8250 is one of the best mobile phones to have... until things start going wrong. The screen, one of the reasons why people buy this phone, is it's downfall. Mine gave up after about 6 months of hard, but non abusive, use. I think all Nokia 8000 series have faults with their screens. The battery is very good and the accessories are great compared to any other mobiles. Ease of use is another Nokia plus point. (read more)

Overall I am very happy with this Nokia 8250 mobile phone, apart from the relatively poor sound quality at both ends of the call (which is not BAD by the way, but not as good as others). It is very rare in the UK, which always grabs the attention of on-lookers. I have read a few of these reviews which state poor battery life and crashes, and I have to disagree. My mobile (software v 3.12) has not crashed ONCE, and the battery life is good considering its size. Predictive text is fast, but... (read more)

Judging from the reviews here it seems that I might be justified in saying the nokia 8250's got one of the best receptions among recent Nokia mobile phone models.

One thing i like is the reliability. Dropped my phone into the sea, got water and sediment on to motherboard etc. The service centre... (read more)

Very disappointed with my Nokia 8250 phone. Phone locks, vibration alert stoped working. Have my 8250 at Nokia care centre for over 10 days. They can't get parts and don't know when parts are coming so I'm left without my phone.
