kam, 12 Apr 2014does the HUAWEI Y300 use QWERTY touch screen key pad?I ran out of time to edit my post, but wanted to adjust/add to the top:
It uses the standard QWERTY keyboard to which you refer. I don't use it personally, but have looked within the settings - seems to use the Android keyboard (built-in) to which you can tick option for "Huawei Input Method" ; if you buy the phone go to Settings - Language & input - then adjust settings in each of these by ticking in the box & touching the wheel on the right.
However, recommend you change to another free one from the store, based on my original post.
kam, 12 Apr 2014does the HUAWEI Y300 use QWERTY touch screen key pad?It probably uses the standard QWERTY keyboard to which you refer.
Although I have the phone, I switched almost immediately to using the FREE "TouchPal X Keyboard" from the Google Play store. Virtually any other free keyboard from the Play store should be superior to the standard one that's built into the phone, so try them out.
Another good one is "MultiLing" which has numerous options for keypad layout. Just search for 'free keyboard' on Google Play.
In fact, I'm thinking of trying out Perfect Keyboard next.
Loula , 12 Apr 2014hi can someone please advice on switching sim cards I just bought the y300 yesterday and it ca... moreYou can use any SIM from any network. Technically you should have no problems.
The only issue you might have is if the phone becomes faulty (after 1-year) & you take it in for a repairs.
MTN will have wanted you to of used their SIM in the phone & if they pick up that you haven't it's probable you'll only get the 1st-year manufacturer's warrantee/guarantee. (MTN these days are supposed to cover the phone for repairs in the 2nd year, but using a Voda. SIM could make that null & void).
hi can someone please advice on switching sim cards I just bought the y300 yesterday and it came with the Mtn starter pack and am currently m a fan of Vodacom so can I switch from the mtn to voda?wont it give me problems??????please advise ASAP!!!!!

Michelle, 10 Apr 2014Brought my son this for Xmas the battery is very very bad he charges it and it is dead within ... moreIf he's not using the phone much, or at all after recharging (ie. it's in standby mode), then it sounds like the battery's a dud.
You'll probably need to take it in to where bought, but issue with that is that after 4 months, they'll take the phone in & who knows when you'll get it back. Maybe phone the store to check the turnaround time/s.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2014I want to buy this phone .wont it give me problems?Possible you'll find a few things that irritate you about this phone. For me, the lack of memory & fact that when I switch it on after some time, it sometimes says an app that I want isn't installed. I then have to restart the phone to get that app to start working, which takes about 1 minute, so not terrible.
Apart from these few things, it's overall good value for money.
mjakes, 10 Apr 2014I cant not use the recorder on my phone (hauwei y300) and any application that uses a recorder... moreI've just tested the Sound Recorder app on the Y300 and it seems to work (fine) - recorded sound from the TV, and even though recording wasn't great after playback, it still works.
Opened the app, pressed the red button on bottom-left, then same button to stop, and bottom-right button to playback. Hope it helps, but seems to me that you're looking for much more, in terms of quality of recording required.
jd, 09 Apr 2014how do i turn off the predictive text , i went through my settings menu could'nt find any thin... moreTry Settings - Language & input - (ensure) Huawei Input Method (is ticked) - then touch the wheel/gear on the right - Input settings - untick all the (Auto correction and) Predict next word options on that page.
However, if you want a better keyboard, download TouchPal X (free) from Google Play, and make it your default keyboard, also in the Keyboard & input methods page, once downloaded.
Overall, you should find it to be far better at text prediction, but you can choose your settings under "Smart input" which includes options to enable/disable Word & Sentence gestures + Contextual prediction.
Try it out - nothing to lose.
