IR means Infrared (e.g. Notebook -> phone)
Data-cable is a cable from the serial port of the PC to the phone. Costs about 10 Euro.
Ringtones cannot be send from Sagem Handy to another Sagem (Nokia could !!)
Try www.google.com to buy a cable (the software you find at the links i mentioned) or rtfm !
ive no clue what an ir is or a data cable,they dont call us scousers thick for nothing
(07791475665 my mobile num) anyone wants to send me a picture message or ringtone i would be greatful
so i think i should give it up as a bad joke thanks mate for your help,i asked orange yesterday if they can tell me any web addys they said no were not trained for that stuff lol what a joke of a company looks like ill have to take my mobile back again
Tones for X5 and G5 are of the same format (Midi or Wave). The G5 does not exist on Sagems site and in different countries you cannot buy it. Seems to be special phone for UK.
You can try it via IR or a serial Datacable. There is no USB cable for Sagem phones (Its not a Nokia :-(( )
ive tried the sites you all suggested, but do i need a usb lead to get them,or can anyone tell me how to get them,schnulli u know your stuff get in touch,ineed drastic help,from a thick phone user
can anyone text me a ringtone i only have liberty x on my phone,thanks for the websites everyone but they were formx not myg5
planetsagem.com ,what a joke, can anyone email me some descent websites for ringtone screensaver ect for the sagem my-g5
good phone but impossible to find hifi ringtones if anyone knows were i can get them i would be greatful
They forgot to mention the X3 also :-))))
One point i forgot. When you look on www.sagem.com, did you see a G5 or G5m ? You will not. How will you get support, when the phone officially does not exist on the manufacturers site ?? What a company :-))
Do they feel shame at this phone :-))))))) ???
I have had a MY-X5. Be sure i know what i write.
I find it ridiculous when people write, they see more than 256 colours. Sagem says it has 256 !
Another example for the poor quality of the phone is the support from the manufacturer. Ever had a problem with a sagem phone ? Outside france there is no way to get support.
Last example: The IR-port. All phones i know from Nokia, Siemens etc. with IR-port can change phonenumber-entries or even print via IR. Or you can synchronize via IR your Adressbook, manage your SMS and so on and so on. Sagem phones cannot do one of this. Why do they have a IR-port ??
For the first sight the phone has some funny features (coloured display and "Hifi"-ringtones). But if you look further it lacks of nearly all features, that would make it an actual high-class phone. Download the manuals for a Sagem, e.g. Siemens S45i or any Nokia and compare yourself !!
So i say thanks to ebay, where MY-X5 became YOUR-X5.
this phone is up there with the 300-450 phones, it has downloadable game ringtones wallpaper screensaver and pictures it has a handsfree kit installed and the fone can change covers along with a great colour screen what more would you want in a phone and its only 120 pounds thats well worth it i was very pleased with my purchase as it had everything i was looking for i highly recommend this phone to everyone you wont be dissappointed trust me
One question for schnulli..... Did you even bother reading the technical specification of the My X-5. If you didnt then DONT critisize the phone. These days its common sense to read what something has Moroon!!!!!!!!!
it's really all down to personal opinion at the end of the day. each individual person will know what they are looking for in a phone, and if you just so happened to have bought the phone (if you actually have ever owned this phone, i doubt it) when what you really required was something totally different (ie. more advanced), then that is a mistake on YOUR part, nothing to do with the quality of the phone itself. it's simple, if you need a more advanced phone, go out there and SPEND. this is a mid-range phone in case you do not know, it's for the average users (ie. the vast MAJORITY of mobile owners out there).
if you are like the average mobile user, all you will want from your mobile phone is an excellent middle of the range phone that is attractive on the outside, yet highly capable on the inside. this phone is all of that, and then some. average users will look for a phone that has a good feature set for the price you pay, (ie. good value for money), and one that is simple to use, highly customisable, with excellent personalization features, polyphonic ringtones (there's room for up to 80 in the MYG5 in 3 or 4 different formats), downloadable ExEn and Java games, excellent battery life, colour screen (the avergae user doesn't care whether it's 256 colours or whatever, colour is colour m8!! DOH), plus this phone also has a very compact size and light weight, WAP, downloadable backgrounds & screensavers, EMS messaging, changeable covers (front and back), infra-red, AND a speakerphone facility. and there are more features i could list but i haven't got all day. so you tell me: what more does the average user want from their mid-range phone except perhaps FM radio??? Please, your comments are a joke. you obviously have never even laid hands on this phone have you?? and yet you talk like you have owned one in the past or something? you don't have a clue. and if you really want to prove that you actually DO know what you're talking about and that you have owned one, then come back and i will ask you a question VERY specific to this phone which i wiil expect you to know the answer to. and then we shall see.
otherwise, you are simply NOT in any kind of position to talk about whether this phone is good or not because it will be clear for everyone here to see that you are talking JAZZ my friend... (ie. Total and utter nonsense).
this handset most definitely does all of those things above that average users would want and much more besides, and it does them all VERY VERY well indeed. and how do i know? because i ACTUALLY own one! Yes, my friend that is correct. that is the big difference. i suspect you do not own one, in which case your comments cannot be taken seriously whatsoever.
it's like me seeing a picture and features list of a Nokia 3310 or something, and then still trying to convince the world that it's a bad phone without ever owning one. simply ridiculous! a good phone is a good phone. not everyone will like it, but from my past experience i reckon most average users once they have tried it once will immediately love this phone. most average users definitely WOULD. maybe the Sagem MYG5 is "a bad phone" in YOUR eyes, but the vast majority of people who actuallyy try this phone i can guarantee you will definitely not be disappointed. poeple buy phones for their own needs, not for what some joker who has never used it says. that's what you fail to understand. most average users are looking for similar things as each other from their handsets, they expect high quality but they are not *too* demanding. they dont expect a 3G phone for the price of a 2.5G phone. the sooner you understand this logic, the better.
but cool pictures don't turn a bad phone into a good one. Neither do cool videos or phantastic adverts.
An example for poor sagem: The new official sagem-site: www.planetsagem.com.
Phantastic layout, poor quality.
To download a ringtone you must call a 0190 phone number (1,3 Euro/Min). Then you can download a ringtone from the site and YOU must yourself load it to your handy via PC and the crappy Sagem-Software. SUPER-SERVICE !!
Some really Fantastic pics of the Sagem myG-5.
the sagem myG-5 is EMS (enhanced messaging service) capable which means you can send EMS messages to other EMS capable phones, not just sagem phones. if the phone you are sending an EMS message to can only handle SMS, then the text part of your EMS message will still be sent to that phone but MINUS the multimedia aspects such as sounds or graphics. basically thats what EMS is... being able to send a text message with a graphic included or a ringtone included or a sound clip etc ect included in the same EMS message. for example you could have an EMS that says "merry xmas" and include a xmas tree graphic or a "we wish you a merry xmas" sound clip (jingle) all in the same message.
there is another version of the myG-5 coming out in future called the myG-5m which i dont think has yet been released.. this is the one that will have MMS capability. MMS messaging means any MMS capable phone can send a message to any other MMS capable phone, not just the same manufacturer phones. eg a nokia MMS phone can send an MMS message to a sagem MMS phone and vice-versa.
the sagem myG-5 is EMS capable.
the sagem myG-5m (not released yet as far as i know) will be MMS capable. i think both will look exactly the same, the only difference being that the myG-5m will have MMS capabilty.
