you can download settings for all networks on samsung website. This phone work flawlessly with my moto bluetooth headset,controls everything work great. Im sure samsung were one of the first to do A2DP
i think it is a great phone, i only have one question...
Can it play music thru Bluetooth or for that phone has to have blootooth v2.0 and A2DP>
please help me to find out
just bought this phone, previously owned the sidekick 2. can't get the internet to work on it. any help? also, are there any mac/apple drivers for this?
Can anyone tell me what the format is that I have to download for ringing/vibrating at the same time? Apparantly some ringtones (depending on their format) have vibration included. So its not just down to the phone settings. If anyone has ringtone no.2 in this format- please post it. Thanks
Thanks for the reply- I'm a bit nervous about taking the scrubber to my lovely new phone right now, so I might just leave it until there are a few more visible scratches!! Cant bare the thought of messing it up!!!
I took my back off, rolled up a towel, put the back on the towel then scrubed medium/ hard for first ten mins, then it will look ugly and light, When its all ugly go hard till its back to normal. MAKE SURE NOT TO HARD!!!! U DONT WANNA BEND THE BACK that's y I used towel. ALSO MAKE SURE UP AND DOWN IN STRAIGHT LINES!!!!! VERY IMPORTANT. I think there is some sort of coating on the back so I used a little oven cleaner when the ugly bits were gone. PS LEAVE THE SIDES ALONE. as thats how original is.
For the brushing- is it 20 mins of hard slog or just light brushing? Also, did you have to remove the back and tape it down to a table or something? And are you supposed to do it just in one direction/ straight lines or can you just srub in any old direction? How do you do the sides of it?
Sorry mate my P310 has only 4 play list not 5 - must have gone blind with to much brushing!!
dp5001 Im glad to hear it worked for you, I have to laugh cos mine looked crap 5 mins in, but as you said another 15 mins or so it was mint also. I also stopped for a cig as I thought I mashed it up, but now it looks good
Woah, how come you get 5 playlists!? I've only got 4..... By the way, have yuo tried using the Multimedia manager that comes on the CD - it's similar to iTunes but for your phone! You can create many playlists in there but i'm not sure if they will tranfer to the phone - haven't had time to try yet. PLUS after trying the software for a few mins it didn't seem to pick up my memory card. Anyone else tried? I've previously preferred to transfer music etc. through windows explorer - maybe worth a try actually using the supplied software for a change!!
Hi all, a few things:
I too have had the 200+ songs in the My Music folder problem - just to add I can only find 5 play lists to modify and import tunes into - anyone know if I can add more play lists??.
I have been using the p310 with a Sony Bluetooth stereo hands free kit and it works very well indeed(going to sell my nano) but on 2 of my tracks when played reset the Bluetooth connection on the phone - any ideas guys??
last but not least - this ipod brushing thing - my P310 back has got scratched as a bugger so i got myself a sponge with a green scrubber on it and practiced on my old ipod nano first. after 10mins of brushing (pressing on hard the nano looked mint. So feeling brave got my phone out and had ago. after 15mins i was getting ready to order a replacement back from Samsung coz it looked so bad - all dull and white patches with a glint of silver in specks. I stopped - had a cig (optional)and then proceeded to give it another 20mins - WOW in the last five mins it all made sense! the phones back guard is bright shinny brush steel without a scratch. and the best thing is you can repeat every time u scratch it now and it takes just a couple of mins to get top results. - I bet it added £20 to the value of my old ipod - even the etching(logos etc) stays perfect.
Brushing has its risks but it sorted me out for a bit!!
Hope this is of some help!
Can anybody confirm that a 2GB memory card will work with the P310? I'm using my 1GB card from my D900. I tried the 2GB with the D900 but it doesn't work so i sold the 2GB :-(.
Got my P310 yesterday. I love the looks but it's got 2 annoying problems compared to my D900 - 1) You can't assign an MP3 tune to be your 'ALARM' tone - 2) All of you MP3's must be in the 'MUSIC' folder. Sounds right i hear you say.... BUT what if you have 300 MP3's (like me) - i used to have each artist in thier own subdirectory but the P310 won't recognise the subdirectories from the music player. It does see them when yuo use 'MY FILES' but yuo can't add the tracks to your playlists as the option is greyed out. The result....? 300 MP3's all in one directory - NIGHTMARE!!!!
Dont worry- got it sorted- its just coz I had the digit type face set as 'script'- set it back to 'normal' and I can change the keypad tones- have no idea why the two are linked but there you go!!
Forgot to say- if anyone has a solution for the keypad tones, please let me know!
Hi, Finally got the phone through and Love it!!! cant belive its size!!! one thing though- for some reason, in the menu for 'keypad tones' it is greyed out and is stuck on xylophone. I can get into it to change it, and can not work out how to change this!!! The keypad tones are annoying, so if I can turn them off, that would be good!! Also, bad news- scratched the back already (somehow) so it looks like I'll be doing the ipod brushing very soon!!!
I've just bought the shiny P310 :)
Sold my SE K790 which was a great phone by the way...
Ok now, P310 surprised me a lot. Very luxury phone. It is thin.. very thin :) and short.
Menus are not eye-candy like K790 or N73 BUT considering its a business phone this is OK.
Has an decent camera really nice. Video recording is amazingg!!..
Connection to my laptop was 15 seconds. Its screen is one the best screen i've seen.
Touch sensitive 2 buttons doesnt make any problems now. At first they made me angry :) you're getting used to it. And it is fun now.
And my final note;
This phone doesn't " vibrate and ring " at the same time. B U T we can make it do that. How ?
Find and Download " PsmPlay 5.5 " and start it. Then open your midi ring tone.
Go File > To SMAF and as we are exporting to 40 poly select SMAF 40Poly. Once this screen pops up, you're almost finished. By checking the Vibrator box you add vibrate to the mmf file.
Save it and send it to your phone. Thats all :)
This is abso-fuckin-lutely one of the BEST phone i've ever used. It's just made me buy another P310 to save it for later years :S
You can get rid the annnoying thing on your screen by sending it for "software update".
Or it is actually firmware update for me. Go to samsung center instead, and it will do it for you in about 3 hours..bye.. :)
