I own t39 for 3 weeks. I made several tests with gprs(also with connected computer) Results of my tests+how to setup GPRS are on my web site http://spacer.kattare.com/gprs/
- I would like to know that Ericsson T39, How much does it cost? Is it a world phone? Does it has a SIM card? How can i order one, if i would like to have it? Please advise. Thanks
Nice phone. I've had it for a week now, and it performs pretty much as advertised. Using the Ericsson serial cable (35USD extra), I have it happily synchronizing with Outlook.
Questions for anybody else here who has one of these things:
- Have you been able to use the "Text Filter" on your Contacts? I have too many contacts in Outlook to fit into the T39, so I tried creating a new category, adding the contacts I cared about into it, and then using that as a filter. It didn't work. Rather than sending across all my contacts, it sent a subset, but many of the contacts sent were not the ones I wanted, and many of the contacts I wanted weren't there. I ended up using the "Record Sync", where you have to put a check next to each contact you care about. Anybody else have this problem?
- I borrowed an Ericsson Bluetooth USB development board and hooked it up to my PC. However, I can't find drivers to make the thing work. Also, my phone can't "discover" it. And, I've poured over the manuals, but I don't see anywhere to tell the PC sync software to use Bluetooth instead of a COM port. Am I missing something? Anybody else get Bluetooth to work for Outlook sync?
- Finally, is anybody here using Voicestream in the U.S. and been able to get the WAP functionality working? What do I have to do?
But sony has to do no more phones itself and so it's in the same line with nokia and ericsson because it's ericsson or ericsson is sony, however.. =)
I recently traded in my Sony CMD-J5 for a T39. Why? Sony never delivered on the PC sync side of their product and I was tired of waiting. The T39 comes with comprehensive software for syncing with Outlook meaning that maintaining your phone list is a doddle. In addition you can set up all the main functions via your PC if you have an infrared port (although you'll need to buy an optional data cable if you don't have one). To me phone/PC integration is a must - I particulary like the fact that I can transfer appointments and tasks into the T39. I'n beginning to wonder if I actually need my palm pilot anymore. The phone itself is a superb handset and I am addicted to the voice control. SONY - wake up - you make a bit hoohaa about your phone's internet capabilities but if you really want to be in the same league as Nokia and Ericsson then do something about your software delivery or keep to making Walkmans. If you want a professional communications tool in a neat and nicely made package then you could do worse than the T39.
As a power user who has tried almost every phone you can imagine and was a Nokia loyal, I can honestly say this phone can't be faulted. The battery life is outstanding, the features including Tri-band, simply cannot be beaten anywhere else. If you need, wap, tri-band , great battery life you simply will not find anything to beat it. Come on Nokia, I tri-band is what you need to compete otherwise you're dead and buried.
What a nice phone! It has all the features I want in a phone and a lot more.
Only negative point is that my T39m won't communicate with my palm V where my T28s worked perfectly. The dutch helpdesk gave me the answer that the don't support the modem in the phone ?!?!??
So if you don't need the modem it's a must have killer app!!
Very mature comment.. Could you explain some more of you opinion and give some reasons for that?
well that makes the bluetooth-handsfree a bit useless, eh? ( dang!)
So the phone is always "listening" for the magic word? you don't press the button on the cord?(the one to pick up the phone)
Quinn, when you using the handsfree....you can set up a magic word.....which would activate your voice command without the need to press any button at all......which is real cool......but only works for the handsfree....not bluetooth handsfree !!!!
Does the voicedial/voicecommand work with a hands free headset (like the cordless one) or do you still have to press a button on the phone it self to activate the command function (i.e. is it still worthless)?
Let's try again..
(arrow right) phone book (yes) add contact (yes) home/work... (yes)(arrow left) unsaved nos. Then add names etc. and save
