I have just ordered one of these on a vodafone pay as you talk from Carphone Warehouse, its for when i go out at the weekends as i dont want to carry my N90 about when im in a drunken state. Im on 02 contract though so I sure hope the guy that said it comes unlocked is right. £99.99 for this phone is a bargain look forward to its arrival.
Wondering. does the panasonic vs6 support mp3 files as ringtones? I know it has a built in mp3 but can you like for example, say get mp3s off your computa and have them as mp3 format and the ringtone on your phone?
I am thinking of buying this phone, but some supplier seems to supply just the handset, whilst others include a USB cable and the like.
Does carphone warehouse just sell the handset?
Does the VS6 only come with additional USB cable etc. from abroad?
Also, there are different reviews about the picture quality. I've read that picture quality is poor, but also fantastic - which is it?!
To Rach (again lol),
As far as I know The Carphone Warehouse only stocks the black and silver one... perhaps the red one is limited edition?
The phone comes factory unlocked to any UK network when you buy it from the Carphone Warehouse. For example, you could buy it on Vodafone (the cheapest option) for £99.99 and then sell that SIM on and put your old SIM in without needing to unlock.
In response to Tony, who asked if you can mute the camera sound:
I don't think you can - not even with the silent profile (which is therefore not really silent...) But if you don't like the default nasty trash-can sound, then at least in the Picture Options menu you can change it to a different shutter sound (like a chime or something).
It would be good if you could assign a ringtone to the camera sound. Don't think you can though.
Got this phone for christmas, did not come with any software. if there is any software for it does anyone know where i can get it or download it. thanks
Can somebody advice me how to connect it with my PC, i m having a bit of a trouble in it, it shows trying to connect evrytime.
sorry to hog the message boards but i just thought has anyone actually come across the red one to buy on payg at all?. it is a lot more attractive than the standard black one, but i'm not too bothered i guess.
Hi Tom. Where did you buy this phone in an unlocked state, and was it brand new? ive looked on a few sites and they say there is no unlocking code available for it yet. However, two people are selling their unlocked vs6's on ebay, which is all the more confusing. Has anyone managed to obtain a vs6, other than from the carphone warehouse (i read they were just exclusive to this shop). I'd like the phone on orange, ideally brand new but it is currently sold out and they don't have them to buy sim free....
If anyone else can help out that would be great too. Thanks for the replies to my previous message.
p.s just how long exactly can you record video for at a time and whats the quality like?
My brother gave me a bleutooth adapter for christmas xD
It works fine.
Happy Newyear every1!
is vs6 possible to store more than 1mb of mp3 if none of the memory is used for photos and etc?
I didn't get any software either when I bought the phone today.
I did find out however that the phone comes factory unlocked - buy the cheapest network model, your sim card will still work!
Hi James, the code for the USB cable is:
USB Cable EB-USX800
For more info, click this URL
(click the VS6 icon)
The software CD comes with the handset; it comes with 2 interface: 1) infra 2) USB -after installing the software, two icons (infra & USB) will appear on your PC's desktop in which you can click either one to transfer data in/out of PC
Hope this info helps ...
Hi Dries, I bot it at M1 shop (Singapore) -
* Standard Sales Package *
1 x VS6 Handset
1 x Battery Li-ion 830mAh
1 x Headset (Stereo)
1 x CD Rom / Handset Manager
1 x USB Cable
1 x Charger
1 x User Manual
I managed to use the CD to run the software "HandsetManager" which allows user to transfer (phone PC)data (message, contacts, pictures, sounds, video). The HandsetManager also contains folders which has other pictures / icons / clip-art in it whereby you can upload them from the PC to your handphone.
Since you bot the phone w/o USB cable and the CD software, maybe you can buy a Bluetooh Adaptor to transfer data between the handphone and PC
Happy 2006 ....
Quality - I value ( tph ) the best choice of market. Very good. Spain ;)
