set bluetooth: turn on bluetooth => "bluetooth visibility":ON => SEE ALL DEVICE ;)
Update your firmware to FW58
Google for gsm multifund and siemens mania cz
Use google to translate for gsm multifund (german) and an alternative translater if you use siemens mania cz as its in czech.
You need to do this to register and download firmware updates as Benq Siemens no longer supplies any.
This will iron out most bugs but not all.
Good luck (i left my sim card in but most say leave it out, if you leave it out ignore any prompts to insert it when updating your phone).
Great design, perfect sound and volume. keyboard has very nice backlight and screen is very big and clear. Camera makes better photo's than my Sony (3.2 mp) cybershot.
Only: bluetooth does not work right on most phones. Can receive but not sending on every phone. Very strange software and not easy to let it work.
In the 2 days i have the phone, it has been shutdown itself once without any reason.
well i recently bought the phone, and after about one month it just stopped working. when the phone is turned on a message pops up that sais Please insert sim card. however the sim card is inserted and works fine in all other phones. also when this message pops up i am able to press the numbers on the key pad and they do show up on the screen. this does not help. please contact me with any information.
I have the same problem with charging the battery.I just noticed that the only way to fully charge the phone is by using the usb cable.ridiculous...
Great design but has some bugs.It sometimes switches off by itself.I still could not find how to check the capacity of the phone.Sarra I suggest to upgrade to fw58.
While I charge the phone the battery indicator is flashing and on the screen it is written "battery charging" as NORMAL BUT after I decide to end the charging process(after several hours) the battery indicator stays the same as before the process. This just occurred (so I have no idea if the phone is in reality charged but the indicator is showing the wrong thing). Until now everything has worked perfectly.
I bought this phone but bluetooth is not working. When I try to activate it it says "adress not set" . Can someone help me?
I bought this phone recently. Its great the best phone I ever have.My advice is to upgrade to fw58 fully charge u r battery since the upgrade takes about 10-15 minutes( but may freeze-if it takes more than 20 minutes u need to start again upgrade froze- and u need to use the emergency download).Me I've try 3 times to succeed unfortunately the phone switch to Russian language but pressing *#0000# and the call button it will switch ti u r providers. battery life increase dramatically have in mind to remove sim during upgrade.
i used the update to firmware 58 software and i killed my phone - completely dead. use the official one from the benq website. I know it says version 48 but at least its the official firmware update
ive just upgraded mine but i dont know how to change the language back can some please help.
Ali: What FW are you using? If it is 23 or 27 it is old as hell. You need to update the FW to 58. It will solve all of these little issues. Go to this www.gsm-multifund.de and register (it is in German but it is still easy enough to register) then download the 3gSWUP_ru file. It is the Russian Retail version. Just install and connect your phone and run the programme. Easy.
Just remember the steps to change the lang back to English. For help go www.club-siemens.net for any help.
I have lost my cd with the driver on it, can anyone post a link or something like that where i can download it
I took this mobile a month ago and it is cool. But from last 4 days I do have a problem that the list of my call history (missed calls, dialled calls etc) is empty and there is no mention of any thing. it says "List empty".Can anyone tell what should I do?? thanx
Does anyone knows if there is a reject list on ef81? On my s81 there is and I can add any contact to it so if someone is on reject it gets a busy line when he calls me
Hi just got this phone and it is really cool however I have a problem in pasting my contacts on my SIM card to the phone memory...can anyone help me with this as I am stuck
I paid 107,-Euro. No branding, no contract. USB-cable, headphones, CD, charger.
Best deal since years. Small (very important in summer!), robust.
But what is really usefull for me is, that I can use it as a fast G3 (3G?) UMTS modem to connect to my notebook. It gets current from the USB while I use it. As UMTS consumes a lot of energy, plus bluetooth - I prefer to take the USB-cable and have a fully loaded mobile whatever I do.
Really good phone!
