I have been using one of these phones Nokia 6250 since they were first released by Nokia. I am now on my fourth phone having to buy refurbished phones. I originally paid £300 for my first phone (Sim Free) so it would work on any network. I have been so pleased over the years with this phone (I work in the building trade) all I want at work is a phone to talk to people, receive the odd text but to be reliable, dust & waterproof (mine is mini digger proof) My only critisum is that it does not...

The Nokia 6250 is probably the toughest mobile phone on the planet. Its water, dust, shock resistant!!! It fits in my career as a military nurse. I had this phone for almost 3 years. So far, it served me well and appreciated it!! The battery life last 4-6 days without charging which is great!! well... it depends upon the lifestyle of an individual. But for me, Nokia built a masterpiece for people like me! (read more)

The battery needs charging every week, but for a weekendtrip I do not carry a charger. Works in England, Rio... not in the US. Why do they not make this phone any more?? Maybe because it is too durable? (read more)

I had my Nokia 6250 mobile phone for about 3 days. The first two days I charged it. The third day I (1) removed the back and (2) inserted the SIM card and went to lunch with friends.
Of course I wanted to show off, so I ordered a large glass of water and inserted the phone. The phone went off in 10 seconds, got "liquid damaged" and never came on again.
1. My local Nokia "representatives" said that I forced the back on the phone when I inserted my SIM card, so it was my fault -- despite the... (read more)

The Nokia 6250 is a tough mobile phone and it is designed to work under hard conditions. It has many features and a very good battery. However, its antenna isn't so good, so it has a not so good reception. Also, it is quite heavy (175 gr). Nevertheless, it is a phone that won't let you down. (read more)

The Nokia 6250 is probably the most practical mobile phone ever manufactured by nokia. you don't have to worry about your phone while you are doing the things you do all day. i always keep my 6250 in my pocket and sweat does not seem to be a problem. Other conventional mobiles will not withstand sweat. its a lot thougher than the Ericsson R310s in the sence that it drops and lands on its top and bottom. the functions of the 6250 are a class above the rest. what other phone has month...

The best phone I've had yet. The ONLY bad points (as I say) is that the phone locks up when doing one of two thinks; 1) when deleting an SMS message a little animated trash can appears. Sometimes the phone locks and has to be turned off. 2) Sometimes when synchronising with Outlook the phone will lock SOLID and I have to take the battery out to reset it. I think these are software issues which may be fixed later on but there is no fix at time of writing. (read more)
