this is the best best best phone. Features are great. Battery performance is superb. No negative things I can say about this phone. The people are complaning about the battery life I am shocked.If you use sms and talk of course the battery wont last 2 months.With avarege use the battery will last around 15-17 days. It has benn tested by me so I highly highl and definitly recommend this phone. People wont buy this phone because pf the brand name. If nokia made this kind of a battery life ,this phone will sell millions and millions. Please dont judge the phone by its brand name.
sharp, 14 Oct 2008ive made the wap work.....
u need an apn & ip address 2 make it work....
but... morehow did you set the Browser settings?
there's like WSP, HTTP, CSD etc... ???
i've got APN set and ip as well... even the port
but i only get "opening 0/1" message on top of the screen and nothing happens. if i then choose options->homepage again, i get a "connection failed" error ??
For the one who asked about using micro sd card. You need to have folders named "Sounds" ,"Video" (without commas) etc to make phone read files from it. Mp3 files must be kept in Sounds directory ant etc.
Well the user interface is fast ant easy to understand, but resolution 176x 220 is to small, and it has 65k screen, graphics is pretty shitty, it looks like the phones we used to use few years ago. Camera is so shitty that it makes me wanna the phone wouldn't have it at all. Before buying it i would advise You to download and read it's manual. Appearance is not as nice as photo looks. In photo it looks quit modern, but in reality in Your hand it won't look like it. Besides that metal stripe is not a so bright like in a picture it's rather yellow-brown. Haven't checked the battery yet (post later). About eq. settings it's true, the sound doesn't change (except bass function makes it a little bit better). For EU people buying this phone there are a few ways to avoid any taxes, just need to check the laws ;]
ive made the wap work.....
u need an apn & ip address 2 make it work....
but the kapasity iz really poor....
hehe, never mind.
the upper part opened more easily because one plastic notch that held the front in place has been broken in the factory already :o :o
bottom half just needed more force and gentle prying....
got the thing cleaned and now it's much better!
the dust probably comes in because of the broken notch.... :\ it doesn't push the screen enough for the sealant to do it's job..
yeah. i noticed the same thing with the memory card.
the best thing to do would be to copy all the necessary ring tones onto the phone memory and then select Uninstall Memory card from it's menu.
if you need to use the card, then just pull the card out and put it back in.
but any ideas how to get front panel off the phone?? i need to clean the ugly dust under it.
i've taken all the screws off but it seems to be sticking somewhere in the bottom half?????????? HELP!
Yo,... ladies and gents, if you take out the microSD card or you put in one smaller than 1Gb, the battery life is better goin',... for 2 weeks (PS. Special thankx to my chinesse budy ;)!)
Battery life is excellent but other features are the damm negative. Have bluetooth, camera, modem but all are about to not usuable.
llisten 8 hrs talktime mean on a full charge after 8hrs of conversation its dead so 4hrs of talktime over 4 days means the battery should be under half......if you charge the phone and put it in standby without using it it will last a month. some people are like oh it only lasts 5 days well if you average 1hr on the phone a day the phone should go a full week on a charge
jeeeezz!!!!! look at the battery stand-by and talk times!!!! why other producers can not make such kind of capacities? respect to PHILIPS!
having problems with the browser... any ideas why it's not opening any pages?? can't understand why it shows all the connection types under the WAP parameters either... there's like http connection, csd and somekind of bearer????
i think bluetooth is the main battery drainer. one should want to keep it off
berbola, 15 Sep 2008heeeelp! is there any particular brand of MicroSD used to this unit? Mine cannot read the list... moreformat the card to FAT32 first and make sure that your card is not bigger than 2GB
phone memory sucks anyway... no need to get all exited if something doesn't work related to it.
heeeelp! is there any particular brand of MicroSD used to this unit? Mine cannot read the list on the track (it shows "empty list") even if it has number of songs already. It can detect that there is inserted memory card coz of the icon showed on the upper left corner but when i chose to open the apploaded songs in the memory card it doest show. help please!!!!
One more thing, i tried to transfer a song that fits on the capacity of internal memory, the song was successfully transfered via bluetooth. But when I tried to open the song to my unit, I can't find any the list is empty still and the remaining capacity was lessen. please please help regarding the external memory card to use.
in normal use it will hold only 2 weeks!
other than that, it's really nice looking and has loads of useful features.
like it shows on the screen all the letters that a key holds. so if you start typing "a", it will show on the screen "abc2.." etc... it also highlights the current letter you are about to type.
it also has "Emergency" feature which means that you can type 112 or 911 into the phone without unlocking the keypad...
there's more, but hell!!!-> i don't have the patience to write them all down..
i bought it from ebay, shipped to Europe. had to pay a little tax, but yeh....it works here.
the earphones are crappy sht though and the screen lets all the micro-dust from the pockets into the phone... dunno if i can open it for cleaning. probably will look into it when i can't see the text anymore :)
other than that... i fully charged it 72 hours ago. had a little play with it after that(got to know the menus etc..), spoke on the phone like half an hour and the battery bar still hasn't gone down from the full.
it won't give you total call time though, just your last calls list.
and YOU CAN set a wallpaper. you just need to use the pictures in the "my files->pictures" folder.
you can also take pics of people and use them as a CallerID pictures.
and why would someone want to change the font and colors when it looks so damn cool already?
if the battery lasts as long as it's said, then it's a really great phone.
haven't tried the browser yet because the service provider is too damn dumbuser-oriented and haven't put the configuration details on their website. they won't be able to send the automatic conf into this phone...
fm function is quite cool too. exualizer should be on "bass boost" if you need a bit better sound.
PS! it works really well with nokia's handsfree. it won't ask for somekind of pointless authorization like samsung does. you simply turn on the bluetooth on both devices and input the pairing passkey once and that's it. next time it's only nessecary to switch on the handsfree and you're done!
you can even record your calls! how cool is that?
