Also,to add to my earlier rant,the phone is HUGE and looks really old even though it isnt.Overall,I am certainly not impressed with this phone and wont be buying an O2 phone again.
This phone SUCKS.If I had to give anyone any advice it would be not to buy it! It cuts out constantly and when I send txts people dont recieve them! I also cant use infared! This phone is totally useless and whoever brought it into this world is a jackass.
i think the phone looks really good but i cant send images and i cant send anythink on infrared..............otherwords useless
Does anyone have any ideas on this? My phone wont turn on with my sim card in it but will turn on without it!?!? Anyone know anything, i've got so many numbers stored in the phone if i only get it on once to get them i'll be happy!
it is in someways useless when using memory to download of wap. firstly theres only 1.4 on the phone and it wont save it to the memory card making large downloads like videos impossible to save. everytime it tries to download it says a message sorry document too large for available memory. and theres no way that the stuff can be saved to the card. nice design but pointless phone
"I have the pleasure of having two of these mobiles one was mine, the others was my sis.
Now mine still works but it's crap:
Problems to date -
Often freezes / locks up when playing games
I brought 3 games for it through the wap site when I was on holiday, Splinter Cell PT, Rayman 3 and Worms.
Splinter Cell and Worms get as far as the 'new game' screen before locking up , Rayman 3 works when it wants to though - and remember these games were brought from the 02 wap site - meaning they're supposed to work on this piece of crap.
The infra-red option doesn't work on either of the mobiles.
And also the light under the button 7 has broke.
On my sis's mobile :
Her's is totally useless
It won't charge
When it worked it would randomly start charging even if it wasn't connected to the charger - wtf!
Virbration got stuck on regularly
Now it won't even turn on : you plug in the charger, press the on button and it freezes and the screen just shows a black line - It still displays the 02 logo / charger display and makes that charging noise but it wont do anything else.
Also adding to the insult of the mobile, there is no way to silence the phone - when the 'silence' option is selected it vibrates by default.
And to get mp3 files onto the mobile you need to buy an adapter for your computer.
Shite mobile / utterly useless - If you have sense you'll avoid.
And the fact you can are limited on your wap downloads to the pathetic inner memory is a really pain and makes the memory card virtually useless.
The only good thing this mobile gave me was free 24 / 7 wap access which I used while abroad for a month! So I probably spend well over the price of the phone on wap access."
Well I can say that you are talking bolox. The only way the light under number 7 should break is dirt or not caring for the phone. As for the not booting, leave the battery out for 12 - 24 hours then try again. As for the games, there are actually disclaimers that state the games are not guaranteed to work on your phone. Infrared only recieves, this is a common fact. If you were to try and use the phone as its supposed to be used, rather than pretending its a Nokia.
I've had the X3 since release (Sept.Oct 04) and it has never let me down at all. Excellent phone.
i had this phone for a while, i loved it ! it was the best pone i have ever had. i lost in on holiday and was devastated. It is a really good phone.
Had this phone for a while. Not a bad little one.
Downsides are the predicitve text is a bit messed up.
Also if the phone has been on "Discreet" and you change it to "Normal" (Ringtones) you have to manually turn the volume up on the phone for the ringer.
Infrared - You can only accept things using infrared, get the person to send it and then activate yours, and then you should recieve the item :D
how can i use the infrared device to this phone?( o2 x3).. when i activate infared , it says connecting ,, and that's all .. please anyone can help me? firstname.lastname@example.org
Does this phone have a loudspeaker?
Also if you hold down the top right button( it has a little dot on it) the phone will vibrate and change to 'silent' do it again and it will go back to what you origanlly had it set as.
i accidently found this out and did not find it in the manual. :D
every time i go to send a picture message it says network bussy please try later. and if i recive a song or video it says file size to large. please tell me how to fix it.
I need some help regarding the device. Could someone tell me how to find out the s/w version number of the device?.
hiya can anyone tell me how to change the message tone? all i have is a doorbell and its annoyin!! plz help!
I hate this phone! Why?... well, it doesn't tell me how many characters i have left to write a text, the volume keeps changing, my games keep freezing, the front screen keeps freezing! The infra-red doesn't work, theres so many bad things about this phone! I hate it! Ive always had problems with the o2 phones.
the best way 2 put mp3s on the x3 is to put ure minisd card/adapter in ure computer and drag the file across from pc 2 card. Ive had my x3 since dec 04 after a few months it stopped sending media messages although still received them ok this is a wellknown problem now so what i did was bought an x4 to replace it with. A big mistake!! Jerky video recording is terrible, while viewing pics getting "please wait" between every1 and the mp3s getting interrupted when u open the flip is not good so i kept my x3 and use x4 to send media meggages/pics. I have one of those sim cards where u get 300 txts free a month just for topping up£10 thats in the x3 and im gonna buy a £4.99 sim card from argos to put in the x4 when u register ull get back £2.50 credit and the usual 30 days free browsing (i use fast flirt) when the 30 days is up ill dump the card and buy another and so on so that means itll cost £2.49 a month for browsing which is great and far better then 1p a minute
I have been given O2 X3 phone by my daughter unfortunately she does not have cd for usb drivers so I cant download photos from phone to pc, do you know where i can get copy of driver i need, i tried one from benk 700 web site but wont seem to work on my phone?
any help appreciated thanks
