i got the phone from 2 weeks i think .. till now i cant set the mp3 format as ringing tone . i know its from file maneger & then set as .... the only option that appears is alarm
If you the steps i mentioned below don't work, Go to http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/p_forum.php?fm=m&ff=813&fi=605219
Its the original forum i got it from.
ok.. now.. for your guys who cannot set mp3 files as ringtone.. Are you people using Samsung T809??
Thats the ruined version of D820. D820 can do lots more. Great video, Vibration and Ringing at the same time and the terrific Picsel Viewer.
From what i know, you guys using T809 are deprived of these functions. I feel really sorry for you guys. I can't imagine it if i bought a T809 instead of a D820. Omg.
But dont worry. It's not all gone. I found a way to set mp3 files as ringtone for T809. I found this on some other forum on the net:
You first have to set your ringtone as a MP3 file then you go through those steps. it should work!
1. Put the mp3 song on your PHONE. (if its on your Memory Card it wont be able to select it as a ringtone later)
2. Go to incoming call settings
3. Select ringtone to see all available (Make sure that your current ringtone is MP3. there should be a couple songs already on your phone that you are able to set as a ringtone, but they suck, of course)
4. Find desired song (it should be greyed out and non-selectable)
5. Then just Highlight it
6. Click middle button (even though it will not allow you to this, the step if a must)
7. Press BACK button
8. Press save. (EVEN THOUGH THE RINGTONE IS STILL THE SAME AS BEFORE BUT SAAAAVE AnyWAYS!)
9. Go back and check your incoming call and it should be whichever song you highlighted.
Eventhough it has a very unique design and an awesome screen I never seen before, But if I ever asked I would really recommend anyone not to BUY it, it is the most stupid device I ever tried in 6 years.
First: the battery lasts only a day, this never heppened before with any other device of any brand, even samsung itself. I had a c100 and an e330 before, and the bettery in both used to last 2-3 days at least.
Second: the video quality really sucks.
Third:You can't set any MP3 files as a ringtone, as I was used to do with Nokia, in addition it doesn't play many types of audio files.
For those who want a device with good audio features I strongly recomnmend SonyEricsson (Wakman Series) , and for those who want imaging, and video feaures I strongly recomend them Nokia (NSeries).
hey .. does anyone know where i can get more skins for da D820 .. if u cud email me .. thanks ..
is there any space to put mobile accessory on?? cant find it anywhere;;; plz email me; if anyone knows;;thanks!
hey u all samsung users im using d820 for last 4 days n this cell is awesome n if u all want to view a photo on full screen try to cut the photo in 240 * 320 resolution and then send it to phone u can set this pic to full screen mode easily ......
this phone is great. I just bought a 1GB microSD and it works fine on my phone. I need help with changing the audio settings. I know the code was here somewhere, but I have no idea what the settings do. can somebody help me out here, please respond to me via email. thanks a lot!
Jimm, the pone does NOT have a clock screensaver. It has no screen saver at all. I called Samsung because I wanted the same thing and they said "Nope". Ieven tried fooling with it, impossible.
FYI to ALL interested in buying this phone: Get the D820 version, not the t-mobile version. You can't do anything. T-mobile ruined the phone. You can search online, there are sites that will flash your t-mobile version to d820, but make sure to find sites that will not mess up your IMEI.
and also... anyone know what video format do the phone support? I can't play MPEG files on the phone..
JT u're great.
Anyway.. do anyone know how i can use the Picsel viewer to view pictures??
I tried transfering some pictures to "other flies" and i am able to view SOME pictures using the Picsel viewer.
All the pictures i tried are JPEG format.
However, the phone only launches Picsel viewer with some of them.
Viewing pictures with Picsel viewer is great.. it allows full screen viewing and great zooming.
i see the options, but i can't seem to 'edit' the image and 'insert' frames, image, or clip art. Is this normal?
I got the d820 today. Please confirm if this has a screen saver showing the time when phone is idle.My screen remains blank.Please Help!!
JT: Thank you so much.
One more question. Video call its possible to this phone ? Could you please inform me better how is it ?
Sorry for the wrong reply.
Pank: it's kinda frustrating when you try to sync with microsoft outlook. It will only sync:
* 1 home phone number
* 1 office number
* 1 fax number
* 1 mobile number
* 1 e-mail
* notes (can't be very long notes too)
This is the bad thing with cell phone with no operating system.
Pank: More or less about 200 messages all together (inbox, draft, outbox, sentbox, my folder combined). I got up to 210 message once. It will alert you that the box is full when a text message arrived and the box is about to be full.
Stallema: Might sound stupid, but do not plug in the phone before you install everything. What Windows do you use? D820 is not XP compliance. It will work on XP, but the driver is not digitally signed for XP. Therefore, you have to install everything first, or it will continue trying to find a driver that doesn't exist. Plus, try not to run any other phone managers (Nokia phone manager, Motorola Easy Sync, etc.). Usually, phone managers don't work well with each other.
Vibe: When someone calls, the picture will not be shown full screen, but it will be big enough for you to see. It will take more than half the screen, and there will be the caller's phone number below the picture. But then again, why would you use photo caller ID when you have Video Caller ID? :-D. D820 and D600 basically same phone with different variant. First, they differ in thickness. D820 is more marketed towards fashion phone (and female, but I beg to differ) while D600 is productivity. But as far as the function goes, they pretty much on par. Plus, D820 supports the infamous "vibrate AND ring" while D600 doesn't.
Xiangster: Oopss.. I guess JT needs some more homework to do with his cell phone. Sorry, never used this function, and not available in option when you're on a phone. However, you can just put the call on hold, make another phone call like usual, and then there will be an option to join a conversation. Tada... U'll have conference call.
Hope this helps.
