Thanks for the reply. This Belkin bluetooth adapter i've got is a bit tricky to use. Where do you go to create the com port open on the mini? i've come across it before but cant remember where it is.

Fortonuz, Newbie keen:
So for the video, how long can the battery last just for playing videos in maximum brightness? Do u adjust the brightness otherwise to see, still enjoyably, the whole movie (~2hr)?
hey...got another big problem here. U see,digi has this bubble voice sms now n i dont seem to be able to retrieve the msg my frens sent me.When i try to dial *0* the phone will called on *0, it seems to me that mini cant dial two aterisk at any one time. can anyone advise me on that??
can u tell me what converter to use to convert the movie?my converted video is still of large size(range 600mb n above)
With regards to the Chinese SMS or any other Chinese software, you're asking the wrong person. I've been failing my Chinese since Pri4 and had never passed since then.
With regards to the DVD conversion, I don't have a problem sharing with you, but you'll need more than a 256MB SD card if you want to have the video plus all the other installation. Most of my videos are encoded to a size of about 200MB to 230MB. Found that this is the ideal file size which gives me the best resolution:filesize ratio.
Drop me an e-mail if you want more details.
You don't need an anti-virus software or a firewall for your PPC for the time being. Currently, the number of viruses for the PPC is still low and the chances of you getting it is as slim as winning a $10M lottery:-)
So, there is no need to install one yet. I've installed it onto my Mini last time, but when I found out that the latest virus signature from Symantec is dated 2003, I decided to delete it.
With regards to using the Bluetooth to surf, it is quite difficult to configure. I've been using the Bluetooth to connect to my wireless router a couple of years back. You'll need to ensure to follow the instructions. I have some problems with the Mitsumi Bluetooth adapter because of the poor instructions and the fact that I can't figure out what the hell they are trying to say. But when I bought the Billington Bluetooth adapter, the instructions were much clearer and I was able to connect to my router and surf at broadband speeds on my phone in the bedroom and toilet :-)
The instructions differ from product to product. But most of them will require you to create com port open for the Bluetooth adapter to act as a network card to interface with the router. If you have a Billington, it makes your job a bit easier as the instructions are clearer.
im having trouble connecting to my pc via bluetooth to surf the internet. Can you kindy tell me step by step instructions to this.
Many thanks :)
hi, a quick simple question. Do we need to have a virus scanner and firewall installed on the mini just like any other desktop pc?
A simple Class II USB Bluetooth adapter is only about $55 and with the Bluetooth built-in - Fotonutz, when u mentioned this, are u saying that this is to be attached to yr pc or notebook so that yr O2 can access the internet through the bluetooth build in?
Thanks alot.Couple of questions to ask.
This O2 mini cant receive chinese sms. Any patch available?I am on wireless at home, How do I use the Mini to connect online? What DVD movies have u copied into your Mini?Since u take much effort to copy the dvds, can i buy the copied ones from u?since i dun have the studio software? The SD card has only 256MB,after i copied my songs and the sw installation, i am only left with about 90MB, not too much dvd movies that u can store there, isnt it?
I am using a Chinese O2 Mini, whatever software that I installed into SD card. I can only execute it thru the file manager to the sd card corresponding folder. And all those softwares that I installed in the sd card are by it's own. Those shortcuts that's created by the installed softwares are invalid. Whereever I clicked the shortcuts on the program/game folder Or the "Start" menu, it prompts me that the path is invalid or not such program in the path. So what's going on with this Chinese version O2 mini?? Pls help >.<
P.S. I did try to create a shortcut thru xp
file manager and pasted it back to my o2 mini corresponding location. Still failed ><
Nope. I dun have to buy any SD wifi yet as I am using Bluetooth to surf the net. A simple Class II USB Bluetooth adapter is only about $55 and with the Bluetooth built-in, I don't need the Wifi. However, I may need it if I am outside the home.
Thanks so much for your comment newbie keen! Just read all previous posts about the GPS, I have decided to get my mini!
forgot to tell u the brand. the voicedial software is by Fonix Voicedial v2.0.
Mini has no voice dial but speed dial. Microsoft has a software package for voicedial in PPC. Maybe u can check out from that.
1. reading ebooks or PDF files is not a problem at all. u can change the view, potrait or landscape. Adobe has it's own PPC acrobat reader to install. u can download software from it site.
2. video playing also totally no prob. cos i'm watching DVDs with my SD card.
3. as long as bluetooth equipment Mini has no problem connect with it. for BT GPS, u can try to ask bout Fotonutz, as he's using now.
Hi all. I would like to get a mini but I do have number of questions before making a decision. Could anyone pls help?
1. With the smaller screen, is it comfortable enough to read ebooks, documents, and especially PDF files without too much bordering of settings?
2. How good is video playing? is it choppy?
3. Can the bluetooth on O2 mini communicate with bluetooth GPS (like Pharos)?
Thanks very much.
what is the quality of the voice recorder with the external microphone? how long is the recording?
