@Jolog09: Mine is ok downloading sms via usb cable. Did the handset manager detected your unit? Usually, a bad installation is the cause of this error. Make it sure that there is no conflicting device with the COM port, which the handset manager is using. Try to re-install the software, this will automatically choose the correct & available com port.

Btw, there is an updated version of handset manager @ asus site.

got the phone... it was great! the pictures were excelent. i printed some of it and turned out very good. the only problem i had that when i write a text message sometimes it repeats the last character. some of the units released here in the phil have a firmware version 4.10. but the latest version was 4.11. my girlfriend bought a v80 a week before me. her phone has only version 4.10 while mine have already 4.11. the only difference is that in 4.11 you can use mp3 file to be your message tone alert. but luckily, the the firmware upgrade to v4.11 can now be downloaded from the asus website. so now my girlfriend doesnt need to bring her phone to wellcom and wait for 2 weeks to have it upgraded. last thing, as of now only prince of persia sands of time mobile game was the only game that worked good on my v80 coz it worked on full screen while other games works on half or even 1/4 of the screen. where can i download games and what games that would perfectly fit the screen?

what is the time limit for the video capture? or does it depend on the available memory?

@Jimmy:
A fully charged bat last for 2-days in my case cause i'm still exploring it, see if any bugs in UI/OS side. I think for average usage it can last up to 3 or maybe 4-days. Plus, you can charge the phone via usb connector from your PC while working..yeahba! Never again na makikipag unahan ako sa power outlet! d na rin po kailangang dalin ang charger!

To all: (V80 users) did the OS/UI hang/freeze? Mine, never had for almost 2-weeks now. my prev phone siemens/nokia 2-days pa lang nag-hang o kaya naman bigla nag-o-off.

OS/UI side is stable compared to symbian series. but, this only my experience, don't know with others.

Yan muna! never stop exploring.....

im not sure if the phone is capable of receive programs from tv station. I think only 3g phones have those feature and v80 is not a 3g phone.

Got this phone from wellcom for almost a week now and i'm not disappointed. ASUStek is a well-known, tried & proven for its quality, performance in Computer Industry. The UI is responsive is this phone, screen is great!(2" vivid-260k colors). Sound quality is also a treat especially, when using my altec lansing 2.1 speaker! and set the MP3 eq to "Dance". Btw, don't forget to buy a 3.5mm to sub-mini stereo plug adapter. BT performed fair enough since, it's only v1.2, Don't have any problem connecting with Noknok N70 & HP Pav laptop, except that when your message tone is set to mp3, the phone does'nt stop playing the mp3 tone after the file transfer. Unless you play another media file. There should be a confirmation or a prompt after the file transfer. i'm still using the latest firmware v4.11. Asus must fix & update the firmware. But still, I LOVE THE PHONE. A worthy Noknok & SE replacement:)

Oh in case any body is wondering on how to install java games here, just get any java game that in .jar on your pc and copy it to your phone via mass storage. when you open your phone again just find the .jar file from file manager menu and open it.

Ive just brought v80 based from good reviews here, and its good to say that Im not dissappointed. The phone has superb features and stands superior to all other phones within the same price bracket. The only downside is that it seems I cant send mms using my network provider of globe and the keypad is a bit smaller, but that just need to get use to it and this will be the perfect phone.

i just have my V80 yesterday and its really nice for Php 10,700. the camera is good, for its autofucos function. sound so loud wen i play mp3's and its FM radio.

to capture photo with flash, LED must be turn-on (flashlight) by pressing #3, press other keys and you will see the other functions while on camera mode.

if you want your photos to be viewed as "fullscreen" on the phone, set the image size to 176x220. press #8 simultaneously while on camera mode. capture, view it and it fits the whole phone screen. about 12kb memory used.

but then if you want to see a large photo into your computer, (assuming that u tranfered the file) select the highest available image size when in camera mode (1600x1200) note: it wud eat your phone memory about 340kb.

The sound really is so loud! especially wen u select the "Treble" as its equalizer. applicable on MP3 playing only.

The Headset acts as the antenna for FM radio, though u can still listen to the radio without that headset in your ear by: go to MEDIA CENTER menu, select FM Radio, press option, choose settings, find Audio Device, the choose Loudspeaker.

MP3's can be a ringtone by: go to MEDIA CENTER menu, choose audio player, press options, select a location where your MP3's are, select a song then press option then select "Add to ringtone". exit then go to SETTINGS menu, choose Tone Settings.... and you can see the song you selected there is already on the lists.

The V80 also "re-charged" the battery using the USB cable to computer.

Great Phone for a LOW Price!!
