my concern is the display of missed calls and unread sms on external screen (already been discussed i know...).
Is the actual version capable of having the external display on all the time (thus showing missed calls/sms and clock).
won't it stay on when there is a missed call. it is a pain in the ass to press the side button every know and then to check for missed calls !
This phone from Philips is really neat! The design is simple and classic, somewhat conservative though, but i like it. It's not flashy but it looks decent. You'll know people will take you seriously when they see you flip it out from you pocket. It's not feature packed like the newer models nowadays but it serves its purpose which is calling and texting. Maybe a built in camera, a video recorder or an FM radio tuner could've made this phone a perfect 10. performance-wise, it has great battery life which ideal when travelling.
Customer support of Philips is so bad! They don't have website for customer discussion, no website for downloading firmware, java app, and tips.
The cover of philips 650 is scratched very quickly, if U take the phone in hard surface and set vibrate --> it will come bad
gr8 phone...very good java applications..but nobody is buyin it.....that means something...
I have this phone for 2 months now and I'm very satisfied with it. The only thing I miss is a way to copy the contacts from the phone to the sim card.
its one of the best phones available in the market..
main keys r
1. long life battery
2. cool n stylish
3. provokes to feel
good for those, forget to carry charger
Just received! Good and cool phone, but some problems with the external LCD. Why it always turn off after 10 seconds ? It's uncool for missed call ou SMS. Push the lateral button to see the hour or the messages is not easy and pratical. Any hope for a new firmware, or a tip to keep the external LCD always ON. Ok, the battery will go down faster, but this is not a bog problem for me.
Thx a lot
In the Organiser menu, is there o possibility to insert bithdays? Is the phone ringing on the birthdays? I played with it at a shop and did not find this possibility. Thnaks
Don't worry. Outside display will show missed call symbol or SMS message symbol. But after 10 seconds display will blank. Push the side button and display will illuminate again and you'll see the symbols again until you clear them by reading SMS or look in missed calls.
hi i am frm spore and i would like to purchase this phone. but i have some doubts, if i hav a msg or a miss call wat will the external lcd show??
Here is what comes when I press *#4732*#:
Date 255 255 65535
So it seems that my firmware version is 13.
And I found out (thanks to this thread) that I can upgrade it at the retailers shop.
Are there any charges or the upgrade is for free? Is the upgrade worth the price to pay?
What is the difference between firware versions 13 and 15?
Thanks for entertaining my questions!
Thank You F4pr.
*#4732*# works well.
But what does other numbers that come show?
Especially the Date.
And where can I find some Java Applications for the phone?
€200,- by Media markt in The Netherlands..
Very good phone. one month stand by time.
Very good quality. I use this phone a month
I've posted the steps to check firmware version on the phone some time back, you need to read the past comments. I think 15 is still the latest version.
HOW do I check the firmware version?
WHERE can I download some java application for the phone?
