can anyone tell me, when u receive msg, does msg save into ur phone or sim card? if phone, is it able to save it in the sim card?
can anyone tell me how long can the battery last after chargin? thanks :)
Thanks JT. It will be good if we can use the Picsel viewer to view all the pictures. Viewing the pictures with full screen is great! The zooming rocks too.
Acutally D820 is a very good phone. Those that complain about poor video quality, lack of document viewer, lack of TV-output, not being able to set mp3 files as ringtones(refer to the guide further down the forum to solve this problem), check out your phone model. Did you buy your phone from T-mobile? Did you buy a T809?
can this phone accept WAV file or rather songs taken from CD? if it is not possible can anybody recommand any program that can do the conversion to mp3 format or format acceptable by this phone....
On the contrary, the D820 has a document viewer which is called picsel viewer. I already loaded it with pdf, excel, word and powerpoint files and it does all the job. There a lot of option to be found once you view it on your phone. You can also project it on a bigger external display using your TV cables. The window files can be viewed in full screen on your external display. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I experienced that when you connect your usb cable to PC, the PC automatically open the window explorer and the memory card will be added on the list like other external drives. You can do this by choosing in the phone setting and set the USB setting to MASS STORAGE. This will only be done when you inserted the microSD card in your phone. You can then drop and drag files to your computer or other external drives in your computer. I did this without any external software but the phone will not automatically charged the battery. Only if you choose modem in the USB setting and use the PC Sync 3 software, the phone will automatically charged the battery while managing your files. FYI
unlike other samsung phones, d820 doesnt have any document viewer, and NO, SMS can only be stored in ur SIM or Phone Memory.
can this phone view documents? Like the document viewer in the new samsung D900. Also can this phone store sms in memory card and store as many message as I like as long as there is space in the memory card. Thks for taking the time to reply... Have a nice day
u can use card reader to transfer your files to your pc... or connect your phone to your pc with the usb cable,
then go to settings> phone settings> usb settings> mass storage
this will allow you to directly access the files on your card...
3gp files can also be played with this phone.. i tansfered a few videos from my n6260 and it palyed. the only problem is that the video from nokia is played in a small screen.. :)
it's been a while since i checked this page.. hehe.. t-mobile really sucks.. they ruin phone softwares so they would earn more... haha! anyway.. that's how business goes...
buy d820... been using it for a few months and i haven't had any problems with it... battery lasts for 2-4 days..
to all you haters... if you dont like this phone, then go buy a different one! it's not like the world will end with this phone... haha!
and it's an electronic device.. it has limitations too...
have a nice day! :)
xiangster: OK, played around with my D820. Now I know what you meant by not all pictures can be shown with piscel viewer since it took me awhile to find out where piscel viewer is, since all my pics opened with picture viewer. My best theory is that it has something to do with the compression of the jpeg (thus the file size) and the resolution of the picture. A HUGE resolution picture with a poor compression (big file size) should open with piscel viewer. My file is 1024 X 761 resolution with 96 dpi, the size is 388Kb. I then took that file, compressed it with ACDSee with the best compression (poor quality, small file size). The picture (26kb) then opened in regular picture viewer. Other than that, I'm not quite sure.
So, I need to clarify some things: Yes, this phone can (sometimes) view images in full screen.. The zoom function?? Awesome!!!
Vibe: Video Call is not possible. This is not a 3G phone.
jimm: this phone has no screen saver showing the time when the phone is idle. However, you can see the time, signal strength and check whether you have missed calls or sms by pressing (and hold) the volume button on the side of the phone for a couple of seconds. It'll show those info I mentioned above.
xiangster: never played around with piscel viewer. But will try today. The video format this phone supports is mp4 (and I believe 3gp, but never actually tried). You might wanna check out Total Video Converter. It's an easy to use video converter with pre-defined resolutions (for phone, psp, streaming, etc. etc.).
Jotham: I assume you have the T-Mobile version. Try searching in the previous thread. Someone mentioned something about the sound code for T-Mobile version of this phone.
D820: No space to put accessories. I don't recommend it either. I don't even recommend putting this phone (in pocket or bag or purse) without a pouch or something that can protect the phone's body.
Amgad: Where are you using this phone??? That's a pretty messed up D820 you got there. I assume you have T809, not D820. Feel sorry for ya buddy. Mine works fine.
Leandro: Yes, 1 Gb is supported. Maybe if you read a couple threads below (or many many many many other threads before), you already found out the answer by now.
japstermizer: Sorry, no mp3s for message tones.
Below Elisabeth: I don't think this phone can be used as external storage without using any software since the driver is not a plug and play driver. But if you do find a way around it, please lemme know. It'll be cool!!!
I really love this phone, i enjoyed everything on it because of the following:
1. design (SLIM w/quality big screen, sliding mechanism and rotary 1.3 megapixel cam. my dream phone.
2.features: MP3 songs are loud using the external dual speaker compared to SE and Nokia n70 as well as with stereo earphones. Mp3 can be used as ringtone, caller id ringtone and alarm tones. It can vibrate and ring at the same time, vibrate then ring or ring then vibrate. Video recording/ playback is excellent and believe me, i have recorded many videos from .3gp to mpeg4 extensions and all played in real time and in full screen (very high quality). It also have video caller id and i can use 10 sec to 60 minutes videos( 3gp to mpeg4)as a video caller id. Mpeg4 is much better and displayed almost full screen. Photos are very good w/ night scenes and saved photos can be zoomed in and out by pressing the side keys but not displayed in full screen, photos taken can be displayed in full screen right before and after you have taken your pictures but once you retrieve the saved pictures, it will not do the same. TV out and picsel viewer are features that outclass all other phones. I can listen audio from external source (mini components), view files and videos on bigger external displays. Batteries last for 3 days using 2 hours (using stereo headphone) of music, lots of texting, 1 hour gaming and 30 min. of calls. One slot for headphone jacks, usb connection, TV output and charging, making phone so orderly and clean. When using usb to connect to PC Sync 3, the phone will initiate charging automatically w/o worrying of battery empty when managing your files. Phone can be used as external storage without using any software.Other features are ideal and unique.
3. Others: (image editor, sonic wellness, hot swap transflash card, fast response user interface/operation).
4. Accessories included: (battery, phone, software cd, usb data cable, tv connector, charger and 64 mb micro SD card.
All the things mentioned are based on personal experience. FYI.
finally i found out how to TURN OFF KEYPAD TONE:
1. Make sure your Dialling display is set to "normal" (Settings>Display Settings>Dialling Display). For some reason, quill and sticky note dialling display disables the keypad settings.
2. After you set it to normal, go to Settings>Sound Settings>Keypad tone. It should not be grayed out anymore and you should have 5 options to choose from, including OFF.
I just bought this phone yesterday and it has been great so far! i have TWO QUESTION though:
1. how can i turn off the keypad tone?
2. is there any way to set mp3s as message tone?
Please email me the answers.
Thanks in advance.
I just wanna know if this mobile phone works with a transflash MICROSD 1GB. Help me please.
