I live in the States, and just got the phone last night. It is awesome. To answer some of the recent questions:
1. I have a 6 gig HCSD Card in, and it works fine. No issues, works perfectly, I just keep loading and loading movies onto it.
2. T-Mobile settings, just called in, got the settings for Tzones, but the MMS is still in progress. Will give you update later.
Well, I've had my Viewty for 4 days now and am very impressed with it. I keep on showing off with it and I'm sure everyone's sick to death of me! Anyway, I haven't read the manual or even used the phone to 30% of it's capabilities but I want to address a couple of minor issues...Firstly the sound volume when listening to MP3's throught the headphones - it's far too low for my liking and even on maximum I can hear people's conversations and the sound of traffic going by. The other thing is the home screen - it started off black with an analogue clock as selected but then after a couple of days changed itself to a menu screen with buttons for selecting messages, memo etc - today it changed itself back to the black screen so I am slightly confused. Apart from these small glitches - brilliant camera quality, touchscreen is easier to use than I thought and it's a really goodlooking phone. Over and out! Score: 9/10
This phone seems really interesting, and my d900 contract is about to run out so i might buy this. But a few important quesions:
1) On the UK model, is it possible to turn off the shutter sound
2)Is it possible to get games for it
3)Is there a headphone jack
4)Does anyone know in which UK contracts the You tube thing works
got mines yesterday from popularelect.com and I've been trying all night with t-mobiles techs to configure the Viewty with t-mobiles t-zones and mms, and nothing it's baffling t-mobile's techs and most of all me after spending all of the money. Can do text-though. I remember I had the same problem with my k800 but didn't keep it long enough to really see if it would work.
So, please if anyone here from the US know how to configured our Viewty to start browsing the web and sending pic mail, please let us know! Thanks

I was wondering if this phone can take HCSD cards (6 or 8GB)? I read a review where someone said (on this site) that it can take a 6GB, but I was wondering if this could be confirmed.
If not, is it likely to be changed so it can take these cards, with a firmware update or something?
Hi i just got this phone and i was wondering as its a new phone will it need to be charged for 24h or just untill it says complete thanks
Just got my viewty overnighted from overseas electronics. It's viewtiful!
Is there anyway to swith into "Manner" mode or "Silent" mode directly without going through the menu
does somebody know what the stand by time and talk time hours of this phone are? pls help
can someone test the divx video codec if it can play online video via browser like www.stage6.com ? how about playing www.youtube.com video from browser.. i dont like the m.youtube.com because its only selected videos..
Jus thought i'd add to my earleir opinion. I've yesed the phone some more and hit more barriers. 300 message email mailbox limit (total, not per mailbox). Definitely can't use the onscreen keyboard with the webbrowser (on my O2 phone), and not with Opera Mini 4. My contacts did not come across complete alot are missing information (e.g. 2 addresses, 4 numbers and 3 emails the addresses are cut off). Mines going back tomorrow. If you want to use this phone even as a limited PIM then forget it, only good as a media viewer/pure phone functions. Shame i was really looking forward to this and there are no other phones i want...
Regarding the shutter noise when taking a picture somebody has said that its illegal to take a photo without the persons permission so it cant be switched off,so why isnt there a red light on when using video so people know that your recording them surely thats also illegal too?it flashes red when taking a picture.
