Your Saviour is here!
to activate alpha numerical input like a normal phone just hold down star key which a little window appear which gives option for T9 and 123 + Abc input once selected keys are in alpha numerical mode.
Can you please help us out here... Can you explain how can we enable the alphabets on the keypad for SMS and contact search.
That would be much of a help. Thank you
How can we use the kepypad to search for contacts?? When i type on the keypad, it is numeric and not alphabet..How the #%^$ can i use numeric letters to search for contacts. Any help here?
After reading all the good posting abt the phone, I got myself one and i am very pleased with it....
Anyway i just puzzled how to actually write/reply text message using just the numeric keypad instead of using the touch screen. Can anyone help....
The way to increase volume on this handset is to download TCPMP this will play all Music and Video Files including MP4,etc...and also has a pre amp to increase sound job done...hope this helps
if you have any questions just post away i have all your answers..
please review this phone.i saw in some other pda review sites that has infra red port but in your site it has'nt. pleas guid me.
Thnak you so much Mr. FA. I'm now enjoying the bass, treble & 3d.But Is there anyway to amplify the sound cuz our Nokia N70, 6680 & motoL6 still sounds a bit stronger.
I'd also like to download about 2 of mt fav movies and i dnt know how to go about it. I installed 512mb mini sd.Correct me if im wrong but p525 doesnt have mp4 that makes movies compressed in size, you see my concern is not to consume huge amount of mb's. Pls. help Mr. FA and again thank you so much.
In regard to your question where do you find bass and treble adjustment can be found going to start-settings-system- then select audio you will now see volume,balance,bass,treble,(3d)
hope this helps
Mr. Francesco, i was so impressed with your review of the P525. I must say that you really are a guru. But one thing is not clear with me regarding sound i have my unit for about a week now and i cant find a way to configure the sound to effect bass, treble, and 3d adjustment as quoted in your review.
My p525 is still stock and the sound is not that loud. I hav'nt downloaded anything yet so my question is.
Does P525 stock unit has treble/bass/3d adjustments and if so where can i find it settings or programs.
Viper, I agree with the person that posted beneath. I also believe you were unlucky with the 2 units you received. I had that echo problem before with the benq p50 and my htc tytn. Contact asus again and see what can be done. I have never experienced your problem since I have had this phone. And my unit is an early build date. I haven't upgraded the firmware and it's perfect aside from the toggle issue I stated a few days ago. Good luck
I have to be honest regarding phone quality this has to be one of the best ive used with and without rom updates...this is the best PPc.. ive used them ALL..
Please contact Asus again and get latest build youve just been very unlucky.
I purchased this PDA phone last week. I must say i am deeply dissapointed with the phone module. Everytime I make a call or receive a call, the person on the other end of the conversation complains of hearing their own voice echoing. This echo effect has made my phone pretty much unusable. What strikes me is that I purchased 2 of these phones, and they both have the same problem. I contact support and all they say is to do a hard reset and update the firmware. I have done both and still the problem persists on both phones. Can anyone help with this neverending echo effect?
Now's the time to worship Asus for their P525. I must say its near to perfection! I am positive that you guys will sustain a great product with excellent after sales service and downloadable software support. Pls tell if it has a hand recognition feature. Thanks I love My P525. Hurrah Asus!!
hello, i've had this phone since late december and i am quite impressed with it. my only gripe is the joystick. for some reason i am only allowed to scroll downward on the home screen, but if i am trying to scroll down in any other program, it does this weird right or left at a downward angle move. does anyone else have this problem? i thought that it could be a faulty unit, but when i am playing games, or on the homescreen, it works fine..
What a nice review Francesco Anacreonte,.. you've got to say it in detail people(esp. me) needs to know: multimedia, imaging and performance... i myself started to get impressed with ASUS, though i think this price is a bit steep still... but anyway hoping to have an asus V75 as my first Asus phone... i'm really prefered to SE's devices for the purpose of music,camera,file management and messaging, but now i become obsessed with ASUS also...
As promised here is my review of the Asus P525 i received it yesterday 13.11.2006 i didnt get going on this machine until 22.00 last night so im quite tired, i have had many Pocket Pcs over the years and so im very critical of these Phones.
My first impressions of this phone is that alot of love and attention to detail has gone into the Phones looks and software and hardware.
The Speed of the phone is just incredible just click an application and instantly its ready...to mention also that active sync loads instantly on your desktop wow...
I started testing the phone on the things i know Pocket Pcs fall down on, Music play back...smaller Pc are not normally as good as the larger ones but this has to be one of the best PPCs ive used to date there are bass and treble and 3d,volume selection options which makes a difference quite considerably to the sound production.
The Sound is loud and crisp bass is very punchy ,production of sound is first rate.
This was tested using TCPMP and Core Player.
Video, again i encoded a couple of Star Trek Voyager episodes at video 400kps and sound as 128kps total load 528kps at 24 frames per second using turbo mode and expuscaler again no frame drop out This is fantastic for such a small device the size of a P990 ,this puts it in the league of a Dell Axim x51v
Games i downloaded Sky force as a test and its the fastest Gameplay ive seen on a pocket Pc again Wow.
Really i have to say i am very impressed whatever i throw at this device it just slaps me in the face and handles anything i throw at it
Camera pictures ive taken are sharp and colourful and are up there with the likes of the P990 and the best 2mp Camera phones this one of the very few PPC with Auto Focus.
The thing i really like is that all of the
PPc functionality can be driven of the phone keypad on the bottom of the phone so no need to use the stylus And when you want to use PPc like a phone it behave like a normal Phone.
Please note this phones does not have 3G or HSDPA or edge but these service are very patchy as they are location based so no great shakes for me but for raw power very little beats this Ninja in disguise in terms of its software set,hardware design and most important of all realabilty i give this phone 10/10 never has a phone delivered so much power and steadiness and quality and this reason alone this has to be the undisputed king of PPc why because phones like P990 very little software and phones is slow....Mda Vario/Tytn lots of functionality but have to keep resetting this phone freezes alot and doesnt have the quality that Asus has.
Asus P525 usesa mini sd cards and has 2.5mm input for headphones..so 2.5mm to 3.5mm adaptor is required....the screen is bright and colourul.
Wifi connects very quickly and so does bluetooth afterall is said and done this has been 1st on your list this phone delivers sheer quality and has the midus touch whatever it does it does very well
any questions just ask away.
This is the first time i have not been dissapointed with a PPC.
This phone was supplied to me by Mobile Gadgets which was delivered from Germany in 3 working days to me in UK great service.
