mansur, 20 Aug 2010hey jane
i m planning to buy corby pro
i wanted a phone with touch screen and qwerty keypad... moreHello Mansur....
Well totally agree with you that it's so irritating play a game only in a portrait mode and with a tiny virtual onscreen keypads but this problem can be solved by searching on the internet for the touch screen games or by editing the java file before installing it... by doing the following:
Open the jar file with WinZip (not winrar). Open the meta inf folder and open the meta inf file and then paste this at the bottom:
I have tried this way and it worked... now the games, application can work in landscape mode with QWERTY keyboard...
just got home from store where I bought my unit.
I'm about to show the defect but it didn't showed up.
Im planning to buy this phone..
why does the specification about the display says 256k colors..it's 16M right?..
hey Pro Jane,
i will get crazy from mobiles and chhosing between them tell me wht phone better
this corby pro , nokia 5530 , b7300 ominalite
and do u know wht os for this corby? and in ur opinion wht is the best os ?
Jane, 20 Aug 2010JM...
well this is the first time i hear such a problem... cause as far as i know that corby ... moreJANE...
yes, its suppose to work w/ all types of sim.
If I find a smart simcard w/ same chip design as my other sims. I'll still return it to the shop.
because if suscribe to a line/plan and the sim don't work then it will be a big problem.
I just hope they can make replacements, co'z I don't have extra phone to use. T_T
and oh!! just noticed there's no application/widget/option to use video calling on my phone. Tried looking at the menu(3pages), widgets bar(enabled all widgets on setting) and also look at phonebook's contact option. this is really weird!.
I can only use it as mirror via *#0*# but video calling, there's absolutely no option to make a video call!.
here's where I found the video call button :
- maked a call, the recipient answers, the recipient ends the call, options showed up for a second then poof! it's gone again. “OTL
after dialing a number
Can anyone help me with the gps? Is there an application i can download in order for it to work like garmin?? I don't want to rely on Google maps!!! PLZ!!
tnx dear jane
i'm hanged among buying b5310 and s8300
prices are the same
b5310 has wifi & qwerty keyboard but s8300 has numeric keypad & CAPACITIVE touch screen & AMOLED screen & 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash ....
so whats ur idea???
i m planning to buy corby pro
i wanted a phone with touch screen and qwerty keypad
and i found corby pro to be the best in its specifications
i jus wanted to know tat can we play games like prince of persia n other games with the qwerty keypad
n not with the virtual keys tat appear in the screen
coz tats really irritating to play such games by tapping ur finger on the screen
n its really stupidity to play with the onsreen keypad instead having a physical keypad

my newly bought samsung corby pro randomly rest... moreis there a fix for this ?
the shop where I bought it is far from my location so I'll find a minor fix that won't void it's warranty.
If none, I'll resort to return/replace the item.
Samsung Corby Pro user from philippines here.
my newly bought samsung corby pro randomly restarts.
My phone is openline.
when I use my Smart-SimCards (2 different sims tested)and It randomly restarts.
but when I use my SunCellular and Globe-SimCards(1sim each).It has no problem at all. I Dont experience auto-restarts.
Smart Sim Card - regular and mini sized copper chip
Sun Cellular & Globe - Regular sized copper chip. has a curved multiple connecting lines on chip. I bet you guys saw this kind of sim cards.
here's my conclusion :
the phone only support simcards that has this kind of sim cards(design).
-I'll try to find smart simcards w/ this kind of design to test if restarts will happen again or not.
see sample pic. here :
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2010which option to use to download utube video to the phoneHello...
well it's not an option in the phone... it's a application you download to be able to download youtube video's if you use the main browser(Dolphin) ... go to getjar and write in search box... you tube and you will see all the applictions :)
arkel of taguig, 18 Aug 2010can i ask you guys about this phone?? is it true that the videos must be converted into an MKV... moreArkel of taguig...
well this is true you can not watch the common video formats like avi, flv, mpg... so you have to convert them but not to mkv but to 3gp or mp4... and I STRONGLY recommend the VIDEO CONVERTER inside KIES program :)
