"A great business phone"

The Nokia 6250 is a well designed phone. It is suitable not only for business men but also for students or other people. It has the well known and easy Nokia menu structure which allows you to use every menu as fats as you want. You can get in the standard colour blue, however it is possible to get other covers to adjust the phone to your personal taste. Not only has it got infra red but it has an inbuilt modem as well which allows you to go into the internet wherever you are. The 6250 combined with a laptop is the perfect mobile internet. Although there are smaller phones around this is still one of my favourite phones on the marked.

    So basically you can get this phone in different colours (how original) and it works "fats" - so I guess all those microwaves inside the phone are great for cooking bacon (so that's what's on the Nokia Menu). I'd suggest a quick read around the Ciao site would be in order to see what is really required to make an opinion useful/helpful and informative.
