anyone know if the phone is charged when you plug it into the computer using the usb lead (NOT the cradle - I know the cradle charges it).
As the post below says you can put the mp3's in my documents on the hard drive. You can also put them in the storage - application data - sounds folder with all the others on the phone if you dont want to rely on using the hard drive.
You can use mp3 as a ringtone!!, save your mp3 to My Documents on HDD (3gb hardisk) and you set mp3's as your ringtone because thats what i've done.
As per GSMArena's review: "The polyphonic ringtones feature 64 voices. Yet I could not help myself and almost immediately downloaded my favorite MP3 file. What came afterwards was a huge disappointment. The problem is that Samsung i300 - similarly to some HTC models - does not support MP3 as ringing melodies. Fortunately, you can use the WMA format."
hi i got my i300 2day and i was wundering how you set an mp3 song as your ring tone? cos i dont have a clue and it doesnt say anything in the cd manual
got the phone now and I'm liking it so far. battery isnt as good as most but it'll do for me.
Anyway does anyone know how to use mp3's as ring tones and is there a way of changing to speaker phone during a call?
I'm on my 2nd - 1st was full of problems. This ones software seems to have slight changes but after 2 days im worried I might hand it back and start searching again. Its great to use and hold but the battery is my biggest gripe. With hardly any use the standard battery only seems to last 2 days, and with heavyish use the extended battery (included foc) lasted under a day. Also when the battery gets to under 20% the hard drive disconnects.
I've heard bad things about the battery on this phone. For examlple that it lasts only a few hours. but then the gsm arena review says I'll be charging it every other day which wouldbe fine. Anyone shed any light on the matter?
Thanks in davance
I recieved my i300 a week ago now (o2 sent me two by mistake but i returned it :)... and now i think its time for a fair evaluation. This phone is superb compared to most phones out at the moment as it runs windows 2003 its easy to use plus there are too many little things that good about this phone. After i synchronized this with my computer i began installin programmes n makin use of the 3gb hardrive. Transferring files with bluetooth is useless but through USB its very quick. One thing not mentioned before...this phone players mpgs,wmv,avi files so no more converting to 3gp. This phone doesnt switch off or crash and yes, you can listen to music n do other things at the same time. Also internet is awesome, its just like on ya computer u can surf mostly anything besides Java application sites but im sure u can install software etc on the phone. Msn messenger is another brilliant addition on this phone as again its like using ur computer n u can leave msn messenger on n do other stuff like play games on ya phone. If any1 wants to know anythin bout this phone just email me, cuz i know its difficult trying to find out abt new phones :).
I think that thia phone is alright, the 5th best non-flip phones I have ever searched. AIYA! I can't find any non-flip phones!
I recieved my i300 yesterday, charged the battery for 16 hours overnight turned it on this morning at 6am and the battery was dead by 5pm. That was with a bit of playing around with the settings and a quick play of one song on the media player.
The battery may get a bit longer life with a few more charges but this is not enough for me so i'm returning mine tomorrow.
I think i'll stick with my w800 until the w900 becomes widely available.
Does any one have any realistic data on battery life for both the standard and extended. Also what is the bigger battery like for handling?
Does anyone know if you can access the full internet with this phone (eg Ebay)
you can get i300 from most 02 shops i got mine yesterday it a phone of 2006 better than 02 xda range ......
