Question about Phones

8 Answers

I'm on Orange with a Samsung E250. Recently, I bought a 4GB microSD memory chip and inserted it into the expansion slot at the side of the phone. The phone recognized that a memory chip had been inserted by showing a logo to that effect on the opening screen. However, when I try to access the extra memory, I either get "Not allowed" or 0MB available. I tried formatting the chip with my computer using FAT32 without effect. Files can be loaded on to the chip from the computer, so it works as a memory, but the phone will not recognize the space it should be providing.

    It was suggested that the memory chip is not compatible with the phone. However, the memory chip was sold as "E250 Accessory", so I assume that it should be compatible.

  • Dave Jones Feb 10, 2009

    Suggested to format card in "Phone settings" Tried that and there is no "format" option offered. The only reference to memory is "shared memory" not the memory card.

  • Dave Jones Feb 10, 2009

    Suggestion that 4GB is too large for my phone. This may be true as I have been unable to find a definitive maximum memory size in the phone specifications. However (1) There is a comment in the phone specifications that by use of a memory card "the capacity of the phone can be expanded "virtually as far as you wish" I took this to mean that if you can purchase a chip, the phone will accept it; and (2) the memory adverts offer chips compatible with the E250, up to 8GB, again suggesting that 4GB should be acceptable. They even give how many minutes of video are possible with each size of chip up to 8GB.

    HI,

    Try this:

    1. Switch the mobile off. 2. Remove the card. 3. Switch the phone back
    on without the memory card in. 4. Insert the memory card when the phone
    is fully booted. BEFORE the phone has a chance to say "memory card
    inserted" press the button to take a picture. A message appears "memory
    card inserted..do you wish to continue?"..say "yes" and take the
    picture. You can then delete the picture and the mobile should
    recognise the memory card (until the next time you switch the phone
    off, then you have to do this again)

2. Card is faulty damaged
3. SD card slot is fault

Your memory card is too big for phone which is causing it not to read it. From my readings, your phone can support memory cards only up to 1gb of memory. That is as much that can be read from the expansion slot on your phone.

If you have tried to format the 4GB card in the computer, and still getting an error, "Not allowed" etc..
I did some research and found that this particular model of phone can only handle up to 1GB memory card. Try with another memory card, format it in the phone. You'll be golden!
If you are trying to save pictures or other multimedia, check with your mobile service provider see if they have a plan you can store your pictures on a web site. Instead of on your phone.

    The truth is that this phone does not take over 2GB memory card, that is the maximum size allowed, read website below:


    Cellular Phones: Micro SD card?, 2gb sd card, samsung e250

    The problem is common to many users, this phone does not take over 2GB.

    Do not forget to leave us feedback on this problem.

    Thanks.

If you have card reader just insert your memory card then you can import your files from your memory card..If you have a pc suite software of your phone just connect the USB cable from your phone to your pc then you get the picture stored in your phone to your pc..

My phone won't sync any music onto my 4gb memory card.


When u insert a memory card you have to reboot your phone. Hope 4gb memory is not too big for your phone? If not check the memory card seat and clean it and insert the memory card again. Thanks

AT&T E250 2.4Ghz Expansion Handset won't charge.


I posted the fix to you on 6/13/2009. The fix was to replace the transistor in the charging path inside of the telephone. I had another phone that I had dropped and the display didn't work. The charging circuit still functioned. I took the transistor off the broken phone and put on new non-charging phone. It fixed just fine. Although I already posted the fix to this site, here it is again:
