Found the answer on how to send data via bluetooth. On the phone start Bluetooth (menu connectivity/ Bluetooth/mode/on&visible), on PC first find your sagem by starting the 'find Bluetooth devices' and when it finds it, right click on it, select pair device and enter whatever number (so-called PIN number). This same number you enter on the phone when it asks you. Now you can send your photos, videos, music and contacts (one by one, as far as I know) with menu command 'options/send by/bluetooth'. The data stores in folder My documents/Bluetooth exachange folder (at least on my win98 PC).
Respectively, you can send jpegs, 3gp videos, midi, mp3 simply by right clicking on the file in explorer and choosing Send to/Bluetooth. After selecting the desired device (i.e. sagem), you have to confirm the transfer on the phone.
Reminder - the phone doesn't accept just any format, so try to match the recommended standards (does anyone know what they are?).
Can any one tell me where i can buy this phone and i live in Melbourne Australia?
does someone know how to send data from pc to sagem via bluetooth?

Has anyone noticed problems with sound quality when recording a video or recording sound only? There are really annoying noises and murmur heard when you record really soft sounds or when there is no sound in the surroundings. Sounds like some noise in a spy movie when they tap someone's phone line . It's disappoining when you have such a high tech device and discover sound recording is really below expectations.
I am also frustrated because dust starts accumulatin under the glass screen. Really annoying cos the picture quality is so superb.
Otherwise it's the best thing right now on the market for its price, I think.
is this a phone or a remote control ???
now, seriously .. the features are great, but what happened to the design ?? did the team have a nightmare the night before they had the ideea of myx-8 ???
in 2 words - nerd (ugly and smart) :)
I have this version of the phone:
251753855 - does anybody know can I upgrade this version with aviable upgrades on planetsagem?
I bought this phone 2 weeks ago and here are my impresions:
displey - no comment, it is pleasure to watch in it, on sunlight no problems with visibility
camera - so clear and lively colours, with flash you can capture in the darkest dark, there are few resolution for capture: 320*240(screen resolution), 640*480, 800*600, 1280*960
one problem here: you mustn't move phone when you are capturing, because picture blur, but you are going to be used on it after while
video recording is prety good, it can record until is out of memory, record sounds(but it can be turned off) and the movie size is about 1min - 1Mb aproximately
sound quality is the best, mp3 is very loud on main speaker, on headphones it sounds like you are listening music on discman or mp3 player - just wonderful
I don't have Mini SD card so I can't tell how it works but soon I will buy one so I will add comment on that
I had before my-X6, and battery life disapointed me on X8, with some use of camera, flash, video, mp3 and IR it can work hardly for two days
but wheny you think better with that huge screen and all that it must supply, it is not so bad
from connectivity I used IR, it works fine - no problems, but don't think about that you can fill MiniSD with mp3 over IR, I transfer some songs over IR into phone memory and
one file (about 3.5 MB) was transfering for 10 min :( , and IR is big consumer of battery
keyboard is very good I think (in compare with X6), it is ease to type sms, but if you have bigger fingers maybe it will be harder, joystick is good
Java isn't very commpatibile, I tried to download some applets but it refused to install, but it supports java 2.0 whatever that means
one realy annoying thing: you can adjust how many seconds to last screen light (from 5 to 25 sec), but you can't adjust after how many sec. screen will be off( it turns of after 20 - 25 sec)
for example you are doing something and for moment look at TV , after that you want to continue but see that phone is turned of ( on X6 you can choose after how many sec it will be off)
you can't turn off the light on screen just on keyboard (also don't like that when I need to save battery)
for the end one interesting thing: I noticed some dust after couple day under glass on the screen, and now it is over whole screen, now I must open it, clean screen and tryed to prevent it from incoming again
generaly I am very happy with phone, and this defect are minor in compare to adventages , so I hope I cleared you some things about this phone which is great
can u please tell me price of this phone?also tell me how and where to get it.
I would like to know whether the x8 and X5 use the same battery? I mean the battery of X5-2 can be used for X8 too, waiting for earliest reply. thanks in advance
Can you please give me the price of this phone. How it can be shipped to me.
To check your software version:
goto menu and hold down *
the latest verion should be PH
Got the local Sagem center to update my firmware. Took care of a lot of snags. Now I can copy to mini SD as well as play mpeg movies. Phone will still reset the clock if you change the battery though.
Still have some problems with the sound quality when making calls. Anyone else have this problem? Maybe it is something wrong with the hardware?
Hi Ken.. where you buy the phone from in Singapore? I also like to get this phone, and also got any warranty?
