hi! I want to ask you something...can I send and receive pictures & musik with the IR port from other phones? Like SE K700.
And can I receive games from my computer via the IR port? (if the telephone isn't Vodafone).
And...are the tones good, like the Samsung and the Sony Ericsson phones?
And why I can't receive files larger then 1mb with the IR port...this means I can't have cool MP3's in it...Please answer me!
Where can I find the call list? What i noticed is that you can only see it if there a person calling you and you dit not answer the call. If you close the window that displays all your call list..then you already have no way to view it again unless you will have another call..
I have a question. Can this phone(vs3) to support SD or mmc?
in the manual, there's something called Webmail. But the said manual itself didn't give much information about the facility.
anyone tried and know what that is ?
Hi Thomas, I'm 99.9% sure that I read in the VS3 phone spec that there is no facility for sending emails.
I got a panasonic VS3 and I love it. I just wanted to know can you send email's of it. I really want to know if you can.
HELP! I've recently bought a VS3 cause I loved the simplicity of it. Trouble is, I'm in the UK, and have discoverd that the handset wasn't released here and I'm having trouble getting it configured for MMS & WAP. Is there anyone else on a UK network that has a VS3 who's had similar problems, or can confirm that their MMS/WAP works ok?
Mine (Vodafone version)lasted 3 days. While surfing on wap, it suddenly died. It is new and dead.
The vodafone version will forbid u to download any application via IR so u are obliged to waste your money on wap download. These guys are smart. So you buy a phone with Infrared, but can only use it for picture and sounds. Also mine came with nothing except a charger. And the pc software available from the web is a piece of crap compared to Nokia' pc suite or Sony's...
Avoid it for many reasons.
In reply to dari, below about installing Java applications. I am tempted to say ask monkey-man below - he has all the answers. Seriously though, I wish this site had an age restriction on postings.
Here is a serious reply. The Panasonic VS3 it is claimed will run J2ME (Java) games that conform to the MIDP2.0 specification. Unfortunately there is no way with the PC software that is supplied with the VS3 to upload and install games via the VS3 data cable. Both the PC software and cable are supplied and sold with the phone in some countries.
As some of the posters in this forum have already discovered uploading music and photos to the VS3 is restricted too. For example, to upload pictures, music and video the album, sound and video applications (respectively) in the supplied Handset Manager software may be used. These applications appears to prevent most forms of useful uploads possibly as a way to enforce Digital Rights Management (DRM) which is present on the phone too. There does not appear to be any equivalent Mac software supplied for the VS3. Sorry, Mac users out there.
So how does someone install Java apps on this phone? Unfortunately there are not too many options. You can browse to a WAP site and download from there direct to the VS3 via the air waves. Or some sites ask for your mobile number so they can automatically send it to your VS3. Look out for additional extra data charges levied by your mobile phone company when you do this as they can be reasonably substantial.
Look out too for other hidden costs. E.g. there is no way to backup software/games you have purchased and installed on your VS3. So if you lose them you will have to re-purchase them again.
That is unless you have the application/game in its native ".jar" format which is the file format for Java software that runs on the VS3. And if you have software in this format there is the problem once again of just how to install it - catch 22. I found a site (sorry I lost it again) that will for a price send it to your phone number. So you pay for them to do this and you pay again to your phone company for the bandwidth used to do this.
So what's the answer? As a games developer I won't develop for the VS3. It's just too expensive to upload and test .jar games repeatedly during development using the air waves. As a games user I restrict myself just to games I can download from my phone company - they charge me only once and tell me exactly how much before I make my purchase. In the longer term I will likely purchase a phone that runs the Symbian operating system. Just now these phones tend to be rather slow but in the next year or two we will likely see them packing more grunt. In the meantime I will put up with the VS3's foibles. Because other that the problems pointed out here it's a great bit of technology.
Does anyone know how to dwld pictures from a Mac? The software CD is for PC only~Now I have to buy a PC just for this phone? Why Panasonic never considers Mac user?!
do you guys know how to install Java applications on this phone, well except the wap option.
really appereciate it.
Don't listen to that guy, he can't even speak english.
The phone can view pictures, and can have mp3 ringtones.
this phone has alot of problem! mp3 and pictures. do not buy this phone if you want a proper one
I think that this mobile is very good...
The only bad that has is that is not take extra memory, like MS-DUO..,SD..,...
It has low memory otherwise it could be the best mobile.
I also bouth one 2days ago, i and the phone is awesome!!!Here in Portugal is only sold by Vodafone, so the all menu structure is Vodafone Live...
The strong points are:The Most wonderfull screen ever made the best os the market i guess, giant memory of SMS (about 500) and also good memory for a middle class phne (about 32MG), MP3 support and the well realized camera with 1.3MP!!!!
The low points for me are: the weak autonomy the phone only last 1/2 days (ate least for now but the phone is new i hope it gets better), and the metalic sound of the loudspeaker, in spite os being 40chanels polyphonic the melodies always sound distorted when is sound level is set to the max.
Good money value, i recomned it, and it´s not expensive, eher is only 150€ Vodafone pre paid
After two days, of looking around at phones and deciding which one i wanted to get. Finally, i got this one and let me tell you, i totally love it !!
If you're having problems downloading games to your Panasonic VS3 there is a simple solution. Go to your local zoo, and get one of the monkeys to do it.
Downloading games to the VS3 is extremely simple. The only skill that is required is that you're able to read. Follow the instuctions on screen, not that you need them. It's proven that monkeys can even read simple sentences... Are you stupider than a monkey? Haha, Of course you're not.
I'm extremely satisfied with this phone, and it is very easy to use.
