I got this phone 1 week ago, asolutely happy about the apperance, but it's so complex to add caller's pic to the contact. I even dont know how to do this until now :D x-(. Most unhappy that battery so poor.
- 10 points for apperance;
- 6 points for sofware;
- 2 points for battery.
even in XP, however,
the SYNCH program appears NOT to have a synch button|feature|ability. I am guessing that it does, somewhere, but its not in the menu, nor in the Help, nor in right click etc etc.
So the SYNCH program is useless to me.
So dont bother with the CD software, leave the modem off, just plug KG320 in and use as a 'removeable drive'
Also there is no ability|indication to load Java Apps,games etc. Sigh! One day phone manufacturers will make 'open' devices, that users can easily load JAva apps onto.
Motorola doesnt, LG doesnt, I dont know if Nokia does, but my guess is that they will be first, and Asian phones will follow.
Windows XP could read the modem
Windows 2000 could NOT read 'com port 5'
Its a really nice phone. However, it is really bad with getting signal. Is there any suggestion of how to improve signal strength? But my most important problem with the phone is, that in the past I had used the auto-answer feature. I recorded my own greeting and people would leave messages, everything was perfect. I would delete my messages right after reading them. Now recently, even though i have already deleted all my messages. I keep getting notifications on my home screen saying "recorded message 1" but whenever i click on it, it says "list empty." No matter how many times I try deleting my messages, this alert just keeps coming back. I’ve tried everything from deactivating the auto-answer to resetting my phone. If someone could help me out with this, i would really appreciate it. I’ve looked for this solution everywhere, from the manual to searching the website. Notifications really start getting annoying. Over all, its a really nice compact phone.
got this phone last week.
does anyone type without T9? i realise the typing lags quite a bit, as in the phone dosent recgonize the key presses well enough.
i.e. typing "4" 3 times gives u a H instead of an I.
good phone, pity the lag.
just another question. how can you transfer pics from your computer to your phone and use it as a background?
T9 software. Does it use the latest T9 software? eg. auto suggest words, word completion, remembers frequently used words, user updated dictionary - similar to the SE phones. The manual doesn't mention any of these features?
i got this phone 2 days ago, and i don't know whether i installed the antenna wrong but it doesn't catch signal in some areas where my other phones would, can someone give advice on how u installed the antenna. Other then that problem it is a great phone thumbs up for it
if you want small phone that rings...then this is the one for you..if you want Quality camera and mp3...then its not. I got mine last week..love it..but dont expect too much out of it..only pain ive had is it has problem sending bluetooth files?? not sure why.
cost B8600 in MBK Bangkok
price should fall, as this is a new release
Its a great phone but:
# No Speakerphone - so cant be used on a noisy tricycle. - Its odd how many phones have a loud MP3 player, but not a Loud speakerphone option.
# Its so thin it can never make a fat sound as a MP3 player (buy a $15 amp+ speakers)
# ringtones MP3 but SMS tone cant use MP3 afaik
- in RP your SMS ringtone is your status.
- I may be wrong, as I havnt found all the options yet
# the camera is good but not quite as good as the high-end Nokias in low light - and lets faec it, its fun to photo in dim lit bars.
but heNokias are about 150% the price
# the spare battery and fast charger is great - never hang on a powerpoint again. BUT dont lose the spare battery, the phone is so new that MBK delears couldnt sell me another battery.
Pictures taken with the lowest possible resolution, can be added to a contact.
i just got my kg320 two days ago and i have some questions..
1. i can't search for names in the phone book. for example, if i type in "r" for Rachel, it says "invalid location"..
2. is it possible to use a mp3 file for the alarm?
i cant seem to change the pics to phonebook pictures to put when a caller calls. is this possible for the phone to support a picture when a caller calls?
1) Both actually. The stand-alone battery charger can be connected to the same power adapter that charges the phone directly or via a PC using the separate USB cable. You can also charge your phone using your computer with the same USB cable while you're downloading/uploading stuff to it.
2) I never used the software CD. The phone acts like a USB mass storage device with preset folders. Just drag and drop to a specific folder and the phone will be able to read it. IMAGES: resize to 220 x 176 to perfectly fit the LCD. RINGTONES: find and download free MIDI files off the net. SONGS: does not work with DRM-coded MP3s or WMAs, only ripped CDs converted to MP3/WMA works.
ive been obsessing about this phone for some time now, and i finally got it today. i cant believe how much smaller it is in real life!! (a good thing) the buttons are extremely easy to use/press, while still looking very sophisticated.
i just have a few questions.
1) for the stand alone battery charge, since the plug is USB style, does it mean that you can only charge the battery when its attached to a computer?
2) with the software CD, is it only possible to transfer melody and images? what about games, and ringtone maker?
Got mine 2 weeks ago. It came with 2 batteries and a separate battery charger unit. At first I thought it wasn't really necessary (but nice to have though) however, I noticed that the cover for the charging port on the phone has a rubber/silicone hinge. I suspect this cover may wear out and come off with repeated openings, so I decided to use the second battery; alternating between the two using the stand-alone battery charger. With the battery cover being aluminum, that should last longer than the rubber-hinged charging port.
Regarding the batteries, at first it couldn't hold the charge for more than 1 day. But with repeated chargings, the batteries were noticeably holding its charge longer. After a couple of weeks mine are lasting 3 days between switches with an average of 45 min talk time per day and a few minutes of internet access.
Overall the phone is "sharp". Menu navigation is way faster than my old Sony Ericsson T616. LCD is very bright with very sharp text and vivid color. I highly recommend a bluetooth headset as the built-in speaker may be a tad low for some.
