good alround phone becki you should get a disc with the phone if not call or go to your local o2 shop show them proof of purchase and they'll give you a free one!
some people are asking how to get rid of the notfication symbol with the quarter of earth symbol on. well i had this problem to and after deletign everything i realised if you go on to o2 home (wap) you can access inbox on their through the menu and pressing the left arrow till you find it. click on it and there will be a msg there.
i've had the phone for a while whilst im lovign it i am also having other problems with it freezing then the buttons don't work then turns off it doen's happen often but it does get annoying. hope ive helped with the notfication stuff
The only problem I have with this phone (i have had it for a year now) is the vague instructions it gives for downloading/uploading music. I've just tried everything I can think of to simply upload a tune from my pc to phone handset but to no avail. For this, I score the O2 X4 a big fat zero. Nice phone, great camera, good functions.. trouble is, with the functions you need a first class degree in rocket science.
Excellent phone especially for the price for anyone who has it on pay as you go, anyone who has it on contract is just stupid with the qualtiy phoes that are offered.
also i dont think that there is a way to add bluetooth to the phonw, but please if you know dont hide it for any longer/.
i have had the 02x4 for 7 months now i think its easy to use , and my little boy has dropped in water and totally submerged it twice now! AND IT STILL WORKS im extremely impressed with this phone :)
i wont 2 download a video 2 my fone but it keeps sayin that my usb plug is not connected to my fone??????heeelp and were can u get the program 4 the O2 X4 PC suite????
i have an x3 but when it stopped sending media messages i bought an x4 but shouldnt have bothered the video recording is jerky(the x3s is sooooo smooth!!) getting "please wait" when viewing every pic is annoying(x3 is instantaneous) the 3g streaming is horrendous theres no slideshow style or the ability to listen to mp3s during slideshow like on the x3 i was very disappointed so i kept my x3 and just use the x4 to send media messages i just bought a spare x3 battery for £9.99 from elite electronics they should also sell them for the x4 too i presume oh and on the x4 mp3 player whats that curly line mean theres off 1 and all and a curly line any1 know its purpose? Thanks.
Press the small camera button on the side of the phone to use loudspeaker...
Does anyone know if there has been any firmware updates to fix the bugs?
the phone is great, it's O2 thats the problem. i bought this phone last august and lost the battery at christmas, and O2 can't get me one as they don't make them no more. so word of advice 'don't lose your battery.' if any one knows where i can get one it would be greatly appreciated.
I dno wot all the fuss is about... my fone has not had any of these problems... battery life is great... i haven't had any problems with the indicator... and my infrared is perfect! I love this phone! And I think the camera is bril!
Anyone who owns this phone cannot give it a good review.
Like everyone says, battery indicator is a joke. Sometimes it says I have no battery at all when i've only just charged it, and doesn't change at all until i reset the phone.
The usb pc features are useless: I have only managed to transfer 1 small song, and it took about 20 mins. The other songs would sit there transferring for the same amount of time, but then not appear on the phone. This also applies to transferring pics and vids the other way. The pc software is equally useless and outdated, and has crashed on me in the past.
The camera is fair, but only if set for the quality and size deemed 'suitable' for the screen. Otherwise it looks rubbish. The video camera jumps every couple of seconds. The flash flashes at the wrong time and so has no effect. However, you can take photos when the phone is closed, using the outer display as a viewfinder. When the photos are transferred to the computer, what might look good on the phone will be huge and pixellated or tiny. Movies are quicktime.
The everyday features are also rubbish. Texts are frustrating; the predictive text memory is rubbish and every time a new word is used it isn't saved so has to be re-entered every time; when the 'delete letter' button is pressed and held, it deletes the whole message instead of running slowly; there's no way of knowing when 1 text overruns into 2 texts until just before sending, and then when you backtrack and change it the phone adds loads of random letters for no reason.
The ringtone selection is stupid and made worse by not being able to add your own. I set my mp3 as a ringtone for all contacts and contact groups and yet still when people ring me it selects a random ringtone. Not cool when they are all so embarassing.
Sometimes it turns itself off for no reason.
Phone seems slim and elegant until the battery is clipped on, at which point it becomes a chunk.
On the plus side, the memory supplied with the phone is pretty good. At the moment I have 50 photos and 5 videos (although not at full quality and size) as well as about 250 sent and received texts (500 in total) stored. The basic features such as the alarm and clock seem to work well enough, but it's a phone, not an alarm clock. These are features all phones manage and are expected to have, and are just about the only features that can be relied upon on this phone.
This phone is a waste of time and money, I've spent hours of my life fiddling with it to get it to do normal things and those hours are now lost. I urge you not to lose precious time on this phone and chose one that has more use than a brick. You can't even build a decent wall with this phone, it doesn't deserve to be called a brick.
No no no no no no no
phone is terrible, the camera quality is rubbish, video jumps every few seconds, battery indicator doesnt work, infrared doesnt work and the volume up button doesnt work. complete waste of money phone.
think someone is telling porkies about having blue tooth added. Iv not seen anything anywhere about this. unless its been completely rebuilt!!
Had mine several months and no complaints except the niggly battery life and indicator bar
the phone is amazing
the only drawback is the battery life which i have developed a solution to make it last longer than 2 days
simply leave the phone charging without use 4 a whole 24 hours so the battery reconditions and lasts longer
plz tell me if it works
