Thanks for clarifying my earlier doubt on the file size of the resized divX movies.
1. If I am not mistaken the phone comes with 2gb card in which the GPS software is loaded. I read in a lot of online phone review sites that the GPS software takes up most of the 2 gb space and that if we want to use the phone for storing data (music/movies) we need to get another card which we need to swap each time. Is this true or can the same card hold everything ?
2. Almost all the sites have said that the phone is sluggish and becomes slow to use . Is this true and if so to what extent ?
3. Do we have to pay for the maps in future ?
4. Can I manage with google maps itself ? I read earlier that the maps need to be updated every 3 days online. What happens if I dont do so ?

Basically, settings for all Indian providers are already installed on phones being sold here. All you need to do is go to Start -> Settings -> Connections tab -> Network Setting and select your provider in the dropdown list after enabling the checkbox.

I have a BSNL connection and I was using GPRS facility to connect to internet with my Nokia E65 earlier. Now I am not able to get the setup files for ASUS P527, can any one help me in this regard.
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2008Thanks man, can you just let me know how much memory does the resized file take ? Also is the ... moreThe final DivX file size would depend on what codec settings you use. I use pretty high settings for a good quality picture, and the file size is about half that of the original 640x480 sized movie. As for the screen size, 320x240 is reasonably big to enjoy a movie on the way, and also doesn't consume a whole lot of battery.

If this is the case with your college as well, then go to Start -> Settings -> Connections Tab -> Connections, and click the "Set up my proxy server" link on the Tasks tab. Ideally, you should already be connected to your college WiFi network when you try this.

Simply go to Start -> Settings -> Connections Tab -> Network Setting, and select AIRTEL from the dropdown list after enabling the checkbox. If that doesn't work for some reason, give Airtel a call, and they can send you the settings remotely.

There you should see all the detected WiFi networks in the list on the Wireless tab, which should include your D-Link Router too. Click on it, and it takes you through the Settings screens. Fill the 1st and 3rd screens as applicable, and enter your authentication type & password details in the 2nd one. Click Finish and you'll be back at the Wi-Fi settings. Click the Connect soft-key, and that should do it!
Don't really know anything about Lotus Notes - just as any other software, you'll have to check if they have a WinMo version, and if they do, then you can simply go ahead and install it.

Also is the screen large enough to watch movies on the go ? Does the battery last long enough to support watching a movie or an hour long show ?

You are right that its minor issue, but still.... there should be some way out... someone told me that there are such ringtones with vibration in-built... so even if vibration is disabled, the ringtone will have vibration.... is tht true?

The phone has a pretty good battery life, and the phone won't be vibrating for long durations for most people anyways. I'll try and call you up tomorrow - just got a little held up today.
Wiboon, 24 Aug 2008Hi..Keten,
You can set as:
Start > Setting > Phone > select Ring type as you want.You misunderstood my question... wht i m asking is tht if u configure "vibrate and ring", the vibration runs continusouly.... this will drain battery a lot.... other phones does not have such kind of vibration
i want to configure vibration in breaks, to run along with ringtone... how to do tht ???
You seem to be quite experienced with ASUS P527. I am really fond of this phone and like its inteface and other other applications.
I need help in configuring the wi-fi on this mobile. I am using Airtel broadband at home with D-link router. I also want to install Lotus Notes on this mobile. Will be great if you can help me guide through this.
Thanks in advance.
