please can anyone help ? ive been trying to download data to my g-5 but i keep getting error message ox-13 connection failure, is there any simple to follow instructions for beginners like me.
NEW SAGEM RELEASE!!!
Sagem MYX-6 with TFT 65k screen!!!!! For more info visit www.europeanmobiles.com!!!
the phone has t9, why don't you use it? actualy I also hate sagem's system it takes too long!! looks like an excelent phone though
My name is mitri i am from Russia i have recenly bought this MYG-5. The only thing i hate about all Sagem phones is the messaging. You have to keep down the fucking button until you finally get to the letter you want. Is there a way you can change this?
You seem to know a shit load about this phone... Do you have any idea when sagem will put the MYG-5 and the MY3088 on the official site....
Does anyone know if any new covers have been released for the phone? I'm getting one because it has loads of cool features, but I'm not too sure about it's childlike looks (i've got a gba to take care of that area :D)
no m8, i don't know where you can get the cable for that phone from. as i said i don't really know much about that phone.
you're better off taking it back if you're not happy with it. get something that you'll be happier with... if you can i'd recommend you to get that Sagem MY-G5 back.
you can get a data cable for the MY-G5 from the sagem online shop. it costs only £12 and delivery is free if you live in the UK:
read the post i made below to Jo about how/where to get ringtones and wallpapers from.
im not happy at all with the piece of shit i bought anthony,i deleted all the pictures in the phone coz they were crap,now im left with a less than average looking phone,,do u know were i can get a usb cable no shop have it?
you are dead right, this is a cracking little phone. all it takes is a bit of searching around to find polyphonic ringtones sites... more and more sagem users are actually starting to create their OWN sagem websites specifically for these phones (myG5 and myX5). you will find things such as polyphonic ringtones, musical ringtones, wallpapers, sceensavers etc. and more and more files will be added to these sites in next to no time!
remember that you first need to buy a DATA CABLE (£12) and download some free UPLOADING SOFTWARE in order to start uploading ringtones & wallpapers etc to your phone.
Get the sagem my-X5 data cable for £12 directly from the sagem online shop, it's the same one that is used for the sagem my-G5 too. it works the same for both models:
(allow about 10-14 days for it to be deilvered to your house, and delivery is free.)
Then you need to download the free Sagem My Pictures and Sounds uploading software from here:
And once you have both of these items, you are now ready to start getting some free ringtones/wallpapers for your my-G5!
GO TO THESE DOWNLOAD SITES:
(SpunkyMunky's website, very good)
(A good site, with good downloads. More Midis than anything else.)
(A valuable source of info, and downloads for the Sagem MYX-5)
(Another good Sagem MYX-5 and MYG-5 group)
(A French site with a good choice of stuff to download)
(Seej's Sagem my-X5 and my-G5 website)
(Another sagem user's website, he has just started it)
(There's Some nice stuff here too)
(A site created by sagem for sagem users, but it has very poor quality design and content in all honesty, best to avoid this website until they improve imo. i just put the link here so you know what/where it is)
(If ever you are having any problems uploading files by Infra-red connection, check out Mike's own software for uploading to the phone instead, very good).
(Another piece of alternative uploading software called myDiscover. also very good)
(Free Palm software for your Sagem, it allows you to do loads of stuff by linking the IR port of a Palm to your Sagem MYX-5/MYG-5)
So there it is! you have more than enough info here now to start getting your own free polyphonic and musical ringtones, wallpapers, screensavers etc!
and you can also check out my post below about how to create your own ringtones too if you want. there is a better guide on Seej's website too. check it all out, and have fun!!
cheers Jo :)
PS: Jim, i really think you would have been better off sticking to the my-G5 you know m8. but as long as YOU are happy with your choice, then that's cool m8. but the my-G5 is a *truly* fantastic phone, despite what certain people who do not know as much as they claim to might say. i think you have been badly misled m8, but never mind... next time just choose the phone that has all the things that YOU WANT, and you'll be ok.
ive just got a myG5 and so far its pretty cool, but can anyone tell me a website to get some new polyphonic ringtones?I mean a proper website, not using WAP. Most of the sites Ive found dont seem to be compatible with Sagem, only nokia, and if they are, they never list the myg5 as a compatible fone. Thanks for the help!
anthony,my phone says19% picture album,1%in phone,76% games, but as for games there,s only 1 game and that was on the phone when i bought it....cheers
cheers anthony,what i can tell you is ,it says 96% memory used,ive found nowere that does ringtones for the philips fisio 825,i think i need a cable to hook up to my computer, is there any chance my pictures i got with the phone,are taking up all the memory? oh yeah i tried downloading a game from the net but its says i cannt download from that site t-mobile the site was called,i tried to download a 30 music demo ,that asked me for a code number,but there were no codes on the website,and it cost me £4.00 for the experiance,thanks for your help mate
i'm not too familiar with your Philips phone, but perhaps this might be useful:
when you go into the menu screen that is for checking your phone's memory, look carefully at what the display actually says: if it simply says 4%, then it is likely that 4% is actually the amount of memory that your phone has USED UP so far, rather than the amount of memory REMAINING. (ie. your phone has probably only used up 4% of it's available memory so far).
i cannot imagine why it would be reading 96% memory already used up if the phone is brand new.
another way to check this is to try downloading things such as ringtones, wallpapers etc and if the phone accepts a few of them, then it is likely that as i said, 4% only signifies the amount of memory used up so far. but if the phone refuses to accept a few more ringtones and wallpapers etc, then you may well be right and the phone might have some kind of memory problem if it is brand new and there is nothing yet saved in the memory.
if the phone refuses to accept any more ringtones, wallpapers etc, then the only other thing i can suggest which might or might not work is to take the battery off, leave it for 10 seconds and then reconnect. This should clear the cache of the phone's memory (as you may have stored too much information when looking at wap sites and thus not had enough memory to store other applications). But to bve honest, without knowing very much about your phone, in my opinion the most likely thing that has happened that i can think of is that you *might* have misinterpreted what the memory reading was actually telling you (ie. if it just shows 4% on the memory check screen, this probably means only 4% memory has been used up so far).
I hope this helps m8, as i said i am not too familiar with your phone so this is the best i can offer.
hey anthony do u have any info on the philips fisio 825,whether its any good or not? and could you tell me why i only had 4% memory on my phone when i bought it?
These ARE THE results Schnulli! what do think i have spent the time trying to explain to you?? it is not just words, these are ACTUAL results. surely you cannot be this dumb that you do not understand? i have taken time to explain to you how the performance level is far greater on MYG5 and yet you are still in your sad state of denial due to your obvious HATRED of sagem? please, just because you are a HATER of sagem, does not make this a bad phone. it is a fantastic phone at doing what it was built for. we can see how much HATE you have in your eyes just by the way you continue to deny the facts.
"Means to me ypou have to pay, because you cannot upload local from your PC, even WAP costs money, regarding which provider you are using (via GRPS ?)."
If that is what you actually meant by PAY, then i agree, but why did you not just mention this before instead of beating about the bush? never mind. BUT when you talk of PAY (via WAP) do you REALLY know how much this involves before shouting your head off again??? let me now calculate it for you: The phone is on orange network. WAP connection on orange network to WAP sites on mobile internet costs 10p/min. game download takes no longer than 5 mins. BUT i don't think you have you ever heard of FastWAP from Sagem HAVE YOU Schnelli??? This phone has Sagem's unique FastWAP function built-in, which DRAMATICALLY speeds up downloads when using an ordinary WAP connection up to GPRS standard (without paying GPRS money!!!) OUCH OUCH! this means the game will be on your phone in next to no time and overall cost, no more than circa 20p per game, debited directly from your phone credit! SO! IS 20p/game REALLY TOO MUCH for you Schnelli?? LOL. what a joke. It is just the same thing as like on some networks you will have to pay 10p/min for voicemail retrieval meanwhile on T-Mobile it is free. there is no difference. less than 20p from your credit is peanuts my friend and if you cannot afford that then perhaps you should just stick to low-level phones instead of aspiring to buy expensive high-level phones like 7650... and remember that as i have said, free Java games are usually of lesser overall quality, and for the people that buy this phone, free games will DEFINITELY NOT be the main attraction...
Remember that you can find bugs in many free Java J2me implementations. For example, if you quit a free Java game "suddenly" with a Nokia 7650 (the context is saved), and then launch another Java game, you have a blank screen until you re-launch the first game!!! Or if your download fails, you can have the name of the game appearing in the Java menu, but that is not the Jar but the Jad. very mish mash, users who are seeking a higher level of performance from thier mobile gaming than this will opt for the MYG5 which contains NONE of these flaws and also has superior security when the game is ExEn due to the fact that the game is not run locally and cannot corrupt the rest of your phone with bugs as in a normal Java phone. And as i said, you continually have the CHOICE of either option. do you want to be limited to: free Java games ONLY, that cost nothing, but are nowhere near the same quality as ExEn games and can be very bug-ridden + paid for Java games... OR for the price of 20p per free java game do you want the choice of ALL of the above AND a superior quality choice of ExEn games with better security and better graphics, gameplay, and brand recognition with well known games such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon? i think the choice is quite obvious. if we stick to your "free games" option alone, users will be stuck with anonymous no-name brand games which are of a poorer quality and of which the vast majority will become extremely boring very quickly. and paid fpr Java J2me games also lack the quality of ExEn games. and on top that many free JAva games will contain bugs due being written by freelancers whose security and testing procedures are not as rigorous as a secure and closed environment like ExEn. Never forget: ExEn games is a COMPLETE PACKAGE, not just a technology as in the case of free Java games. basically the price you pay for this choice is 20p per free java game, which you may or MAY NEVER actually want to spend your money on in the first place, the CHOICE is always yours. you will never get this level of choice for gaming on a normal Java phone. NEVER.
And Finally, when you talked about backup for your phone's memory on "other phones":
1. which other phones are these, and
2. is this PROM or FLASHRAM backup that you are referring to or is it a different kind of memory backup procedure?
there are certain solutions that i am aware of for memory backup on the MYG5, but firstly i would like to be sure exactly what type you are talking about.
People don't mind about the technical background, they are interested in the results:
Is this right or wrong :
"The G5 has no chance to backup a Game. So when your memory goes small, you delete something. Download and PAY for a new game, not knowing, if it is good. Then you test the new and you are annoyed of the new game. You must delete it and DOWNLOAD and PAY for the old (AGAIN !) or another one. "
Is this right or wrong :
"The memory of the phone has a specific size and if you download games, maybe 1, maybe 4 (depending on how many wave-files you saved as ringtones) the phone could not store more."
"There are plenty of Java J2me games out there as you yourself have already pointed out, and many of them are also freely available for direct download to your phone via a WAP connection."
Means to me ypou have to pay, because you cannot upload local from your PC, even WAP costs money, regarding which provider you are using (via GRPS ?).
You wan't tell me, that it is cheaper uploading games via WAP than copy it local from your PC to the phone.
But i see: You are in love with this phone, even sagem is not convinced about it. Otherwise they would sell it in Europe or America or ...
