Just to advance on that whole video problem, before I put a video onto the phone I use Xilisoft Video Converter 3 to convert them to the suitable properties (check previous post) so that they can playback on the phone.

If your wondering how to do so, its simple.

Step 1: Just open up the Xilisoft program (once you've downloaded it from the internet, you'll only need the free version anyway).

Step 2: Click add file and select your chosen video.

Step 3: Highlight your file(click it once). Now click on the profile drop down menu and select MP4 MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4).

Step 4: To your right you will see a box that contains the properties of the video file.

Step 5: Now enter the following details within that box.

- Video Size: click the drop down box and choose 176x144 (qcif)
- Bitrate: 60
- Frame Rate: 16

Step 6: Choose the destination where you want to save the file by clicking browse

Step 7: Click encode (when or if the window pops up click later then ok).

When the conversion is complete transfer it to the phone. You should now be able to playback videos on your phone.

Enjoy.

Bought this phone for someone else a while ago. Although its not mine I still get to use it now and then, and I think its well worth its value.

Sending and receiving files via bluetooth is a breeze and the mp3 player is loud and up to standard.
The screen and 1.3 mpx camera are also of good quality, as are the videos.

And Yes, java games can be easily uploaded onto the phone. I own a psp and I use my mini usb cable to transfer pics, sounds and videos; as well as games onto the phone(so there's no need to buy an expensive sagem branded usb cable, if i remember correctly I got mine for 5 from blockbuster).

The memory card slot is also fantastic too, you can get up to 2gb mini sd cards now; so thats about 500 songs on the phone easily.

For those with rhe problem of not being able to play downloaded or received videos from other decives, there is a solution.

You own a my501C or a my501X. You are trying to send or download a videoto your mobile. It refuses to record or play it.
So that your mobile can store or play videos that you send to it, thesefiles need to respect certain limits, as listed below:

- Format: 3gp, MPEG-4 (according to version)
- Video Codec : H263, format SQCIF or QCIF
- Bitrate : below 70 Kbps
- AMR sound format
- Frames per second : 16 maximum (fps: frames per second)

Other than that, this phone is GREAT (ignore the bad reviews, they just dont know how to use a phone).

NOTE: I use www.getjar.com to download free games for the phone.

hi there, have read all your comments and have to add my own. i have recently bought this phone and have had nothing but problems with it. used it for a couple of days from new then it started coming up with 'sim problem'. had sim checked but was nothing wrong with it. the phone just got worse as each day passed. continually freezing, delayed key response, wouldnt send mms message at all, sometimes wouldnt send sms message, couldnt stop ringtone when sms came through, it just kept playing and playing quite embarresing when your ringtone was set to 'captain scarlet'!! the list goes on. i was a bit disappointed with it. have sent it off to be repaired and am waiting for it back now, but will sell it when it is finally returned. i also have the 6-2 and that is a lovely phone, i have had no probs with that at all.

right,i just got this phone yesterday and was worried about how it would be following all the comments everyone put on gsmarena,so i paid 60 for it,and wow what a phone,the mp3 is loud enough to be heard from one end of a room to another,the camera is very good for a 1.3mp camera,even the video is smashing,the phonebook is easy to use and the bluetooth is rapid to recive and send,and it is a nice easy to use 10 out of 10 phone,if you want a phone for crimbo,don't buy any other--BUY the sagem my501x

@hosoga:You should buy 6-2.
@kbs from Belgium:I imagine an up-date will be available.The phone is actually a Bird product.
Maybe the zoom is *8,but you have only 5 steps.
The mp3 for 6-2 has the same desavantage,more, the back-light is always on.
And yes is a imature product for the end of 2006...I agree.
Boila!
