Last week I stated my intention to buy, having weighed up that this phone would be a better option than the Motorola V3x.
Having had it for two days I can say that so far I'm really happy with my purchase. Physically it's a beautiful object. In features it has a good range and is good value for money, and it performs excellently.
Easy to use user-interface, good quality photos, bluetooth data transfer is easy, mp3s play at a reasonable standard, all the extras are there you'd expect.
Yet to try out the Mobile TV or use the phone as a modem. I should add that the customer service I've received from Vodaphone has been good too.
no this phone does not have a flash for the cam
your broweser isnt set up
I cannot download any games and vodafone dont seem to know why. Tried to download Pac-Man from the free demo on phone - it comes up with Web error 404. Can anyone help please?
I think you can only get it from Vodafone website for free for £20/month - 12 month contract.
You made the right choice. I've had both phones and V3x reboots randomly. I had the software updated from the shop but it still has the same problem. V3x also uses a difficult user interface, forgiveable for a while but unbelievably unbearable after some time. The 770sh couldn't be easier to use and the software's built rock solid.
You probably have Daylight Savings Time On or Off. Change it at Settings / Date and Time.
Have been comparing the Sharp 770SH with the Motorola V3x and finally come to the conclusion that I prefer this one. Some of the spec may be better on the Motaorola, the camera for example, but the 770's design has won me over.
Going to order online from Vodaphone, will report back in a few days, hopefully with a positive account.
I really love my new phone. but something wierd! I set the time and date but any incoming text messages come up with the time showing an hour before. I know they haven't been sent an hour before because I was having a text converstion with one of my friends. Calls are fine and show the correct time. Any ideas why?
Use File Manager of the Handset Manager and transfer mp3 in the handset's Other Documents folder. Once transferred, use the phone's move function to move it to the Music & Ringtones folder. Goodluck. I love this phone. Its no frill no fuss good looking phone.
The problem is that it will not acknowledge/recognize MP3 files in the Handset Manager, as such will not allow me to download them to the phone. It does ackowledge .wav files though
You don't need a memory card to play the mp3 in your 770sh. After loading the mp3 in your handset return to standby screen then press the music key on the keypad.
Changing font size in messaging will convert message format to MMS. Sending "text" messages, unfortunately, will default to medium size.
Just got the phone - I am trying to download music to the MP3 music player from my PC but all it does is download it to the tone section. Do I need to get the memory card and put it on there first?
Does anyone know how to make the font size bigger and to stay that way? When sending a text message the default setting is very small font, you can change the font size to big, but once you have sent the message it reverts to small font. Can anyone help, please
There's a tiny LCD screen at the back that normally shows bars for the network strength and battery strength + a clock.
When someone rings the number or name from the phone book starts scrolling in the LCD display.
This phone got vibration and profiles, so you can either feel the vibration when you receive a text message in silent mode or create a profile with whatever signal you want for text messages and the rest silent, it also have a different ring signal for video calls.
It's very flat so it fits fine in the pocket of the trousers without feeling uncomfortable. I got one last week here in Spain.
I really like this phone and im thinking of getting it, what happens when someone rings, theres no screen so do u have to open it up to check? Does that immediately activate the call? also when you get a text is there some signal from the outside so you know when you look at it if its on silent?
tom you're dreaming, it's not coming out for xmas. it's already out in the uk! and coming out in switzerland, france, germany late june.
