Where'd you all come from? :o)
Okay. Firstly, there is a firmware upgrade to .26 which came out in April which has increased performance and stability. I would recommend people having problems check if they have this. Secondly, if you are suddenly having stability problems, I would suspect that you have loaded an application recently which it doesn't like. I also noticed the phone gets temperamental when the battery is getting low (and does the camera ever run it down quick!) or if the memory card is getting full.
The phone is capable of running .RAM files. Have you tried more than one file? Have you proven the file will run okay in Windows first? If you have, then I dont know what to suggest. They work on mine okay.
As far as which is the best phone, it depends what you want it to do. The 7710 has a better camera, a radio, screen and better sound quality than the 910i. However, it is a bit unstable and a bit slow and does not have a lot of extra software at the moment. I prefer it to the 910i, but that is because of what I wanted out of the phone. The 910i has higher resale value here (UK) than the 910i too. I have heard that the XDA 2 Mini is better than the 7710, but I dont know.
Audio volume wise, I have heard that the 7710 has about the highest volume of any of their phones when playing MP3s. I'm not massivley impressed myself with it when outdoors, but it works very loudly indoors (I have to grab my phone quick or I annoy everyone when it rings) or with the headphones. So it is pretty loud, but gets lost in traffic noise (its certainly not a ghetto blaster).
Switcher (which I beleive is what you are referring to) is a freeware program (I think its on my-symbian) which is used to periodically close any applications which have been left open by the OS. I understand it does a better job than the phone does and when people see their phone suffering performance issues or reliability. You can also achieve the same affect with the latest firmware by pressing the bottom right button for 5 seconds. Actually, scratch that, I have just installed Switcher and it does far more than the button.It enabled me to close far more.You can find info about it at "all about symbian" website
i want to buy nokia 7710 but before buying it i want to ask you , which phone has more powerful sound......
3)nokia 3300 (mp3)
im having a hard time choosing between the ff. Nokia 7710, SEP910 and XDA 2 mini. need help asap. tnx!
This phone makes heads turn, but what I don't get is, why on other site opinions this phone is a dreaem come true, and other sites(GSM Arena), this phone is a mistake.
The only thing Im worried about is, Nokia 7710 built with so much Bugs that no buyers would buy it?
If so is there a Software Upgrade?
This Phone would be unbelievable if it had
Intel(R) processor(Like PDA Handhelds)
Hello, I am considering the 7710 as an option for a new phone but as my wife won't let me get more than 1 a year I need some info. I am encouraged by most reviews, but I have a question; what is this crystal switch chip that is supposed to improve it's performance? Where can I find information on it? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Need Help.... I am trying to run .ram extension file of Real Player on my phone, but it gives me System Error. If anybody can provide the solution?
I've been using the 7710i now for about 6 weeks. I had previously praised it's abilities and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Sadly now thought after several systems crashes adn hangings i've come to curse this device. It just seems to eb a gltich of the operating System and it periodically crashes or hangs. Nothing else for it but to take the battery out and reboot it, painstakingly slow and not really convinient if your in a hurry. So me thinks Nokia need to go back to the drawing board with this OS and sort out the bugs. Plus it's really ackward making phone calls a the keyboard is in the wrong plain to the way in which you hold the phone, and the keyboard doesn't stay in view.
i wanna upgrade from my p910i to this one, but here in Romania, this one is cheaper than mine, does it worth it? is7710 better than mine? (still a nokia fan)
Video clarity depends on your source and the sampling rate. Smart movie comes with two examples and one is blurry, the other is perfect. I have copied a couple of things and they are pretty good, but I have more playing to do.
I bought this set today after a long search & analysis on the cell phones. I found it best among all of them. Firstly I was afraid from the user reviews that, this phone is dam slow, but I am not agree on this point. It’s doing fantastic. Thanks to Nokia for launching this Tech Savvy phone..
i wanna know how is the video clarity in full screen in this phone.
juss inform me if it getz nlurred a lil or anything like that..
hx in advance
hey... can anyone provide me with the URL to download the roms for EEMAME? I have downloaded EEMAME but i have no idea where i can find the roms and which are the compatible ones...
Ankit. Please look at earlier posts in this forum. There is a full list there. If you can't be bothered, then I cant either. Sorry, but too many people post without even bothering to look past the first page.
There is no built in flash on the 7710. It has an inbuilt night vision mode. You can have MP3s playing in the background of any application, except using the phone itself, when it is muted.
Version of EEmame that you have is correct. You can download the DAT file for mini EEMAME which will list what is compatible. There are a few hundred.
hello.. i hav been using nokia 7710 fr a few weeks now but truly saying, i dont find dis fone intrsting(especially fr dose ppl who are addicted 2 shortcut keys lik me)..
Can any1 plz temme d links frm where i cn download games & softwares fr my fone ???
Thnx in advance.....
tanks Witchking...I've found the mistake...but, as you said, many roms are not recognised by EEMAME. my version is 1.11 for nokia 7710.
I have mame working fine on my 7710. Firstly, make sure you download the mini eemame for the 7710 and NOT the old full version which is not stable. Secondly, make sure you install Mame to the DEVICE and not the MMC card (or it wont find the virtual keyboard as that is hard coded to look on C). Thirdly, make sure the ROMS are stored as ZIPS on c:\Mame\Roms (where C: is device). Fourthly, not all zips/Roms will be recognised by EEMAME as it is based on an old version of MAME. That being the case, you may need to rebuild your ROM files. That gets a little more complex and I have yet to mess with it (check harmonicode.com). Lastly,EEMAME is currently small screen. I'm aiming to resolve this in conjunction with Staffan, but it will take me some time as I have a lot of learning to do, despite being a developer.
As for stylus's. The manual says dont use anything else, but as long as its not sharp, you should be okay. I use my fingers most of the time anyway.
EEMAME is on my device whit roms.zip but MAME doesen't find any game roms on the device...why????
I love the screen, and the way I move from camera to images to sketch program. I have a little trouble inputting text - haven't tried handwriting recognition yet though.
Is it really dangerous to use any stylus but exactly the one that came with the Nokia 7710? It will be awhile before I receive replacements in the mail.
