@sky, i think the beep is a functionality that lets you know if you're approaching the minute mark of a call. this can be useful if you have a provider that charges you by the minute by rounding off your calls.
Does anyone know where i can find the female calendar? i dont think it's included
I have used 9@9r for about 2 months. Overall, I am satisfied (happy without 3G) although I bought it mainly for the advertised long standby time.
Pros: MicroSD (up to 1GB only, although I keep a spare 1GB within the phone cover), 'external' speaker produce good sound, USB for all connections, good standby/talk time, as 'mass storage device', relatively cheap @ RM699 w/o MicroSD
Cons: does not save new words to T9 in text input
Camera/video quality are quite good. Signal reception is average. Other functions are OK. Good buy in my books.
I thought this phone was a masterpiece until I actually got one and started using it.
It doesn't recognize Kingston 2GB microSD cards. Upon connecting a call it will emit two quick beeps and when a call ends it will emit two long beeps; I haven't found any way to turn this off. The photo viewer doesn't have any way to zoom or crop images. When using .wav or .mp3 files as phone sounds (ringtone, alarm, etc) the first half-second or so of the file doesn't actually get played. And probably the most annoying feature of all, the phone keeps setting my clock forward 1 hour past what I set it--so I set it for 10:00AM and three hours later when I go to use it, instead of being 1:00PM it's 2:00PM. I have no idea why it does this. I haven't tried any of the bluetooth features yet. Otherwise, it's a great phone and I'm pretty happy with it; I'd give it a 7.5 out of 10. I'm in the USA on the T-Mobile network and it works fine as a phone/SMS/MMS device.
i intend to buy this phone, how much in malaysia..
and anybody using this phone i wanna ask the processor work, does it slow or fast??
I want know how to format MicroSM Memory card to FAT or FAT 16 before insereted in to phone for the phone to work, as YANG stated in his letter dated 12/9/2007.
Well done to Philip! I have bought this phone 2 days ago and i really like it! i have a choice of getting Motorola V3xx, but i have made comparison and my conclusion was Philip 9@9r.
The function is more or less the same, but it has a more user friendly software to operates. For a non-competitive handphone manufacturer in the industry,Phillip has creates it own name by itself and great improvement has been made. So What should i say more! Bravo! Hope in 2-3 years, Phillip can be a great leader in the market, don't let me down! keep it up!
I got this phone during PHILIPS carnival few days back.
I was quite impressed with the standby time, after a full charge for roughly 2.5hrs. Follows by a call about 20mins...till now 3 days later, the battery scale still holds at full bars.
Now the bad part...
MicroSD Memory must be formatted to FAT or FAT16 before inserted into the phone. MicroSD formatted with other phones does not work as this phone cannot read its content, even though the files maybe friendly format.
Files support. According to the box details and the phone profile itself, it claims that it can "display" WMA files...but in fact it cannot read at all!
A2DP??? I tried to pair 2 of my MOTOROLA Bluetooth headsets to this phone, but it cant play music at all!!! Instead i get error messages like "bluetooth music payback not available!" Huh??? Had i got a phone with wrong firmware installed?
Otherwise, the rest of the performance is acceptable.
This phone is not easily available in Singapore, as most of the other retailers does not carry PHILIPS make due to poor demand.
I will post user review on photo quality in next few days.
This looks like a very nice phone but there are two draw backs as far as i am concerned for me to buy it.
1. No notepad
2. Unable to pause recording video.
sure, u can use mp 3 as ur ringtone coz i m oso using..
d phonebook can save up to 500 entries.
Hi..one more question before i buy it,how many phonebooks can this 9@9r can store?thanks
I am thinking about buying this phone. Dammm it looks GOOD ... but can some one tell me if i can use mp3 as ringtone ??
And also tell me all the disadvantages of this phone. I just want the money well spent...

One question, can you use mp3, wav, mid, etc files for your SMS alert? I know the ringtone is customizable, but is the SMS also customizable?
