GPS: nepetrov76, the S81 supports a bluetooth-compatible GPS receiver. What you should do is to install a GPS Java software which is available on www.getjar.com
Skin/Theme: vict, the S81 does not support Skin/Theme
Does anyone know if this model support GPS ? I mean if you buy GPS reciver ( I know that phone doesn't have one ) could it work with it?
Unstable firmware. The one i got always hang when trying to reply received SMS. The only good side about this phone is the low price. Anyone looking for serious bargain could take this but look forward for troubling firmware
here are MMS SETTINGS I hope i didnt forget any steps
Im not sure if i do remember all steps but it looks a bit like in motorola v3 .First go to services (the earth icon) then to wap settings press option choose add profile and add the name that your provider requires( ie tmobile )
there you will enter the require values like profile name, home page, ip address (your provider will give you these). Myself I have used the same settings as in mms settings
Then you have to go to messages and then to mms and from there to (no 7)settings to enter what settings are needed by your provider in the field server info.(here im not sure if you just only need to add the profile you have created before for example tmobile)
Who would have thought that so many features fit into such a slim (13 mm) shell? The S81 will widen your communication horizon with such features as video telephony or real-time streaming.
Is there a way to download into the phone a different THEME or SKINS like in Nokia or Motorola phones. Can anyone suggest a site for this? Thanks a lot guys for the prompt response. Please give us a link site pls.
I love my phone is beautiful but can someone help me with my problem? My wireless service is t-mobile US and they do not know how configure MMS messages on the the BenQ-Siemens S81 (Please can some help me )
Have used this S81 for one month. Prior to this, I am a big fan of Sony Ericsson T68i, which I haved used for 4 years until now.
In my opinion, S81 is a great phone! Stylish design, manly look, and solid candy bar build. Play music beautifully!
Some interesting and useful features:
- Flight Mode
- Reject List Caller Group: you can instanly bar incoming call from specific contacts by adding the contacts into the Reject List, which you can hardly do in others mobile phones.
- Paging LED: From the color of the Paging LED, you can know whether you have received a missed call or a new message.
- Speed Dialling and/or Shortcut Key.
Difference between Siemens and BenQ Siemens is that Siemens is a big organisation with interests in power, civil, nuclear, telecoms (till the merger of Siemens comms division with Nokia is approved, this will be called Nokia Siemens Network - NSN in short) while BenQ purchased Siemens's mobile phone division some months back.
IS it true that Asus and HTC are buying this company for their mobile phone division?
Beautiful..I love the looks..I think I'll get them all...!!
I think I'll wait for the S91 one of the guys mentioned..
Anyway..I'd really apperciate it if someone answered me!
What's the difference between Siemens and BenQ-Siemens?!? What is it?! What's BenQ?!?!
I don't know anything about phones!
Your reply will be much appreciated!
whats the difference between Siemens and BenQ Siemens...this phone is simple and nice..good 4 bzness
and a Quad Band too, since some business people travel abroad couple times a year.
Please Benq-Siemens release a new S class (s-91) with better battery life (400 H standby, 8.5 H talktime), HSDPA, 3.2 mp, RS-MMC external memory, a better organizer, RDS radio and the most important thing is the software can be updated like the old time siemens (that's what make siemens different with others)... Now i still keep my s75 and pass for S81. By the way, S88 is not a business phone, since it was an entertaiment/multimedia phone it should be E88.
yeah the second camera for video call may come in handy as it captures videos from front side and the other camera is placed behind the phone.
I love this phone, good slim looking, many usful features, the display is excellent, mp3 players is very good. I love BenQ-Siemens :-)
vlaado7 wtf are you talking about!? What do you mean 2nd display? Maybe you meant 2nd camera?
