Hi Paul :)
Did you not get instructions with the phone? You might want to go to the Samsung webpage and type Z140 in the search box. On the right hand top corner there is an icon that says Download Manual or something similar. You should find how to get mp3 files transfered onto the phone via the PC software in there. Have you found that your battery needs charging all the time? It makes me a little mad, I'm at uni and theres not many places that i can charge my phone. Also, I turn my phone off for a lecture and when I turn it on the phone sometimes it can't find my SIM card or it comes up with emergency service only or asks for my code. Can anyone help me with taking a picture. When I look into the screen the picture is upside down. I take it anyway and the picture in the folder is upside down too. HELP PLEASE. I've read the manual, the settings are right.
its an ok phone soo annoying that you cant have realtones as your ringtones and i rally want to know if u can get pictures from your phone to the internet cause there is a cable thing but i just don't know how to use it i wouldnt recamend this phone looks cool and all but gets booring after a while
Can someone please tell me how to get mp3 files transfered onto the phone via the PC software as I have no instructions...thanks!
General Public dosen't know stuff about cell phones and should stick to engineering. You just take the photo thats upside down and go to the photo folder, click on the photo, turn it the right way and save it. Simple! Hes missing calls because he talks nonsense
I agree with General Public. He/she makes some good points. My fone only holds its battery life for about a day only. I always get this message Emergency Service Only. I have to keep turning it off to reboot it then it sometimes doesn't find my SIM card. Very disappointing fone. Don't buy one.
To me, the Samsung Z140 from a point of sale is misleading, backed by bunch of rubbish published and distributed through publishing resources. The Z140 has a maximum battery life of 2 days IF you don't touch it. If you use your phone for general use, it will need to be charged daily but if you use the phone for business use like I do, then don't forget your charger, you'll need to charge it at lunch. If you have enough battery to take photo's, you'll be looking at the screen upside down, and of course, the photo comes out upside down too. There are very little features in this phone that aren't in competitive phones.
As an engineer, I purchased the phone to make/receive calls and take site photos. I’ve missed calls and had the phone drop out due to used up battery or loss of service. So, my advice is to you is to stay clear of the Z140 because honestly it will cause frustration and importantly, the phone in my opinion is not fit for its intended use. At work, my ex-Nokia got full bars, this Z140 barely gets 1 bar.
Yes YOU CAN have mp3's as ringtones. I have done it on my phone. You simply download them to the music folder on the phone and set as ringtone - simple.
for people who want to turn 3g off go to the main menu and choose settings. now go to connectivity then network settings. choose network mode and change the selection from UMTS to GSM 900/1800 this will deactivite it and to get it back on choose UTMS
its a really good phone accept it takes a while to load and you cant have mp3's or real tones set as your sms/mms ringtone. only for video/voice calls :-( you can only have pollyphonic :-( and there isnt a good 3g signal so i set it to 2.5g :-)
on the specifications, in the camera sections there is an abreviation VGA... wat does it actualy mean?? does it mean that is is better than a 1 megapixel camera?? as im really :S
*wahh the sound very "loud"
*hmm ok nyce screen (colour)
*lots of "funtions".....
*setting up the wallpaper...
*vibration ? worst......!!
*can i delete the pic or videos inside??? its taking up spaces irritating.....~~
*the memory can expand bigger..?
*can i put mp3 as msg tone..? ( so sick)
last of all = the game very "nice"..
regreting buying this phone... sickening!!!!
I have just got this phone and on first impressions think it seems good but I am concerned about the battery life. Please can someone tell me how to turn off the 3G function. I have tried going into connections to change the network setting to gprs as someone had said but don't have the GPRS option. Can anyone help? Please !
hi there all .can anyone tell me if the alarm is set does the phone need to be turned on i thought i could have it set then turn thanks tonyphone off and the alarm should come on
Well...where to start ? I will start with the pros. Very good screen. Very bright and very good resolution. That´s it for the pros ! Short, isn´t it ?
Battery life very short, even if you turn off 3G features. To do it just go to connection setting and set the network to GPRS. So the phone will not try to switch between GPRS and UMTS. If you leave it and there is poor UMTS...the phone goes to Emergency Services Only and freezes !! You must reboot like a good PC under W98 !! But there is not Cntrl+Alt+Del ! And this several times a day.
Sound is not loud...I miss calls constantly ! Vibration does not help much ! Alarm clock works sometime...it has its own life I think ! I still did not find the reason why it works one day, and one day not ! But the funny thing is that when you set the alarm clock, the previous alarm that did not ring starts ringing !! Very funny ! Like it´s 22h and the alarm clock set at 7 AM 3 days ago rings ! Also the schedule...same pb, events are not shown...sometimes they are shown when you set the alarm clock !! Does anyone understand ??!! So you miss calls, wake up, events...who programed this phone ??!! Was it done by a student during a summer school ?!
Really disappointing. I will never ever buy a Samsung mobile again. NEVER EVER !
