To repond on cristi: I tried it and it don't work!!!
I see the light (black and white) change but theire is no blue colour!! I think it is maybe broken!!!
I like this phone but that there is no light bother me a lot!!!
When I open my phone i see the blue light on the external display, but it don't switch on when i recieve a message!!!
cable will not solve any problem. the only way to send pictures from mobile to pc is by infrared. but guss what? it dosen't work. i told Philips about this and i recive a mail in witch thei told me that i shoud take my phone to a service. in the end i found out that the problem can not be fix.
I bought this 655 from philips and I am having trouble to unload pictures to the PC via infrared. the phone simply do not recognize/finds the pc. also i cannot find a cable for it. but I am not sure the cable will solve the problem since the software provided by vendor do not comprise such an option to download from phone to pc.
can anyone who went through this trouble could give me a helping hand, please?
i consider buying this phone too. Regarding the "external display problem" i red somewhere u gotta press for 3 seconds a side-button, and then will it light up...
I can't download photos from my telephone, a philips 655, to my computer!!!I saw that many people have troble with it.WHAT CAN I DO???Please answer me...
I buyed this phone and i'm happy with it. Sometimes it is long to type a message, it is weird because first you choose the sender, but it is ok.
It is a shame that you don't have a counter when you type a message, so you can check that you do not send 2 messages, or maybe if someone now how to switch that on??
There are some stupid things about this phone, but it is alright.
you should deffinetly buy this phone...if you want a piece of s**it. i have it for only 6 months and it isn't working already... i agree with all the others who said it works bad.
The phone dosen't have an USB Port, but you can download or upload with an IrDA wireless bridge (the phone has infrared port).
It takes clear pictures, but it needs a lot of light, beside that it's a great mobile phone and has a great price (only 129$).
I recomand for all mobile lovers, he has a great design, and has a lot of features.
it's possible to transfer pictures from it to pc with a data cable? i have a data cable but i could transfer only messages and agenda
ok so it makes prety pictures but when transfered to a pc the pictures are small 128x118 or something like that.is there something i can change to take bigger pictures? please help :)
I bought this phone three weeks ago,and from the first day I was very dessappointed of it.The external display does not work and the internal works only partial.After three days I returned it to the store and they send the phone to philips lab.I have no answer from them until now.I believe that the phone has factory problems and I still wait to get an other one not a refurbished unit.The pictures are very poor quality...and believe me : don't buy this phone.I will never buy in the future Philips products !!!
I have been looking for a while and I found the ansver.
Some guy wrote that this phone have got active screen, that means if you heve got active main display, you are usung the light on it '( or how to say it) the outside screen should shinig on blue, otherwhise the screen is broken :]
Yes, the name (or number if not in the directory) of the caller appears on the outside screen.
But I have not found how to activate the blue back light, as shown everywhere. :-(
And I neither managed to remove this stupid video when you switch on the phone.
ok thx. but there is one more thing which I would like to know. Does the outside screen works correctly. Someone said that there are problems with the blue light on screen, and it's impossible to see who is calling to you. Is it true??
for szfagier : yes, it's possible to put the phone in silent mode
(long press on the  touch by default)
when you receive a call, is your second screen light on in blue ? on mine no, it light on in blue only at the power up.
when it's closed it's wery difficult to see hour time or when i receive a call impossible to see who call me without open the phone. is it same for you ? thanks for your answer and soory for my english I am french, see you ,Didier
I would like to buy this one in the next 3 weeks but someone said that there is no option to make quiet the phone, disable the ring tone like in nokia or siemens. Is it true, and does this phone work slowlny ??? :]
It looks like we can't transfer pictures or anything else from the phone to the computer. This is what Philis itself emailed to me.
A CRAZY BUG, indeed. The manual says the contrary!
Is Philips a serious corporation? I think so. But not in this case!!!
