Hey I got a black SX1 a week ago.
Works great, is fast, full of features, great night-mode, okay (but still one of the best) video mode, etc etc etc...
Funny thing is, i got hella drunk 2 days ago (was my birthday party), so I accidentally sat on the phone too often i guess (phone always in my back pocket). Next morning, realized that ALL data (except for those in my mem card) got wiped out. EVERYTHING, including settings, display & sound settings, pictures, sounds, notes, alarms, even phone numbers and also GPRS/MMS settings! But like I said, those in the MMC were okay and undisturbed.
The phone doesn't have a clue of damage (even after a crazy night) nor did it get wet. How did this happen?!?
Secondly, yeah I have the black one, with SVN 14. I am just very disgruntled about the sound on this phone. It's sound system SUCKS and the speaker is loud enough for an ant to be satisfied, but not me! How do I upgrade the loudness of this phone's speaker? Is it possible? What about upgrading it's soundcard? Is this at all possible? THanks all!
I recently bought an SX1, and it was the first and last Siemens phone I'll ever buy.
The battery life with light usage was barely a day, despite the claims of Siemens. Moreover, the phone crashed at least once every day or two during the first week.
I upgraded to the latest software, but that didn't stop the crashing problems. Instead, within a couple of days of upgrading, it started spontaneously shutting down after a few minutes of use. Sometimes I was lucky, and it would work for a few hours, but it usually died right away.
I took it to a repair shop, who said it was a software problem, but I wanted it to be repaired by Siemens, so I sent it back to them. After waiting two weeks, Siemens refused to fix it and sent it back.
I've mostly owned Nokias before, and have never had a single one fail ever, even with rough usage. I was very careful with this Siemens phone, and yet it failed within two weeks. Maybe I just got a lemon, but it's enough to put me off Siemens for life.
The Firmware13/14 are only available in siemens service centers as the firmware changes are too great(files too big to be placed on net to D/L)however i am too lazy to make my way to the service centers so i don't know the difference actually! sorry
can you record a song from the radio to mp3?
Siam-you need to connect the headset (its an antena)
is it true dat in version12, the volume of the handsfree decreased?,and please somebody tell me about version 14...tnx
i want to listen to the radio, and my phone says to connect the antena!!!
please help me:)
It depends on what you want.Nokia maybe is faster,i gess. I have SX1. It is quite a good phone and it restarts when it NEEDS - this is a good thing! And SX1 is more more faster than most siemens phones
hi..,iam mehrdad.i want to buy a good mobile phone...but i dont know which one is better..n6600 or sx1 .?someone says that the sx1 restart by itself whenever it likes!!is it true? .iam in a hurry and i want to make a good decision.please give me more advice about two powerful phones above.
hai....so sad ,Now Sony Erricson has the best phone.The S700 is out.Sob.Now i am stuck with the 2 best phone.S.E phones are cool expecially the Camera images.
This phone is interesting me. Im about to buy it, but that's before a retailer tell me not to buy it, because it s often has problem with the reliability of the camera. And that is, it has cheap second price. Anyone can tell me how great is this sx1? Does the keys are simple to use when typing messages?
And, anyone can tell me where to find a converter for mpg to 3gp or 3gp to mpg movies?
hey can anyone tell me if u can use mp3 as ringtones. amazing phone love it to bits
SVN 14 is the software version for the SX1 with the intergrated DMP software from O2... It allows you to download encrypted AAC+ music (compressed MP3s) from WAP using GPRS...
And the phone is also black which makes it look pretty damn cool...
