pls help! for D900
im trying to download mxit but after 99% it ends with a "install error". i try their earlier versions of mxit but the same thing. i tried getjar site and can download a few other programs but some give same error. i tried your programs to download from pc using usb.there too some load and others give errors.
lastly i tried to reset the phone but still same error.
i need mxit to chat to my friends and family as this is a cheaper way to keep in contact.
is there another messenger that could work for the d900
Your firmware is the first release in 2006 october and it is a release for an Arab country. Newer version is available in the page you mentioned.
If you have no warranty, you may get the phone flashed at a service center. If you plan to do it yourself, get a tutorial from somewhere. You can find a link to D820 flashing in this forum. Type 'Yarik' in the search box at the bottom of this page to find my post to Yarik.(Don't know D900 flashing process is the same or not) You also need a FLASH CABLE, not the data cable for flashing. Click on the below link and scroll down the page to find the flash cable for D900.
Regarding the firmware version, select D900XEFK1 in that page. A newer version D900XEFK2
is available here:
I am not expert in flashing.
Before adopting flashing, you may try this short custom reset method and see whether the bluetooth problem is corrected. But before doing this YOU MUST BACK-UP THE CONTACTS LIST, as this will erase all contacts. You may do this by using PC studio software(manage contacts or synchronise with outlook).
The process: Type *2767*2878# in standby.
Wait for some time. Phone will restart. If not, press red button to restart phone.
1. Your phone will be reset to the original settings.
2. Password will be reset to 00000000
3. Contacts will get erased
4. Music playlists will become empty(add songs from phone/card again)
5. No files in phone or memory card will be deleted. They are safe.
The custom reset method is safe and if there is the slightest risk, that you have to take yourself :-) Goodluck !
thnx RAJESH for ur immediate response..
my firmware is D900JPFJ1...
i got it as gift from my cousin who lives abroad..
it doesnt support any warranty claims...so i dont find any other solution to the problem...or i have to take it to the repairing lab.who will surely change its harware..
i hav consulted some ppl they say it might hav some problem with phone software...
my bluetooth problem is that whenever i try to switch it on it says "activating bluetooth" this msg bar goes endlessly..
then i hav to slide down the phone to end bt.
aftr taht if i open bluetooth again.the menu sshows that bt is off but if i try this time to switch it on..phone says it is already activated..but it is not searched by any device....
then if i press the switch off button the phone hangs nd i have to restart..
this is my whole problem..i will b greatly thankful to u if u tell me any solution without flashing the phone.
ASRAR,Think twice before flashing a phone. I hope you are aware of the conequences. Flashing will void the warranty of your phone forever, it may alter the IMEI, you may get some advantages and you will probably lose some features. To read more go to the bottom of this page and enter 'flashing' in the search box.
Also the firmware versions given in that page are old releases. The newest in the list for D900 is Nov2006.(Flashing with a D908 firmware may change the language-not sure) And your phone is likely to have a new version. If you have difficulty in determining this, post the firmware code here and it will be explained. Type *#1234# in standby to get the code.
My suggestion, you go back to the dealer as yours is a new phone. Btw what is the bluetooth problem?
this is the link to download flash files to upgrade ur firmware.....
hey guys m a new d900 user.i got this abt 4 days ago.its bluetooth is not functioning properly.n i thought to update its firmware by flashing the fone.i think it will solve the problem.but i dont know how to flash it.i have the flash files n one nand downloader 1.8.but it does not detect the phone when i connect it for upgradation.please help me if anybody knows how to upgrade firmware.
Does this happen for every contact saved? Or some particular contact only?
Thanx for that, yea i figured it out by accident anyway. Another question, how come it doesnt recognise the number as the same contact when it starts with 04.. instead of +614? So if i have a contact saved in my phone, and i recieve a message from that person, their name doesnt appear above the message, instead their number does, but starting with +614 instead of 04. Do i have to change all my numbers to start with +614? i hope not! (+614 is the area code thing)
Keypad tones: Click the below link to download D900 guide. http://www.4shared.com/file/17666838/f607f4d/D900-TIPSTRICKS2.html

I just bought the D900 and i have a few questions. I can't seem to turn off the keypad tones. i can put it on silent, but i cant have it on loud with out keypad tones.

To Gideon P. Pieterse;
A common issue. To confirm you are proceeding through the right steps, do as follows:
1. Uninstall PC Studio......
(..........insert the cd again......select language....select 'install sam pc studio'....choose REMOVE option....finish uninstalling.....
.......now select 'install usb drivers'.....repair/remove option should come up.....choose remove and finish....if instead of repair/remove window, the installation wizard starts, that means you have not installed usb drivers in the first attempt, then cancel the wizard and exit set up
.......exit set up and remove cd)
2.Disconnect the data cable from the pc, if it is connected. IMPORTANT; NEVER CONNECT THE DATA CABLE TO PC UNTIL YOU ARE ASKED TO DO SO.
3.Insert the cd again. Select Install pc studio. Proceed through the set up. Before you press 'Finish', UNCHECK 'LAUNCH PC STUDIO' option. This is to prevent pc studio attempting to connect before you install the drivers.
(AT ANY STAGE OF SET UP, CANCEL THE LIVE UPDATES WINDOW. You may do it later at any time)
4.Install 'USB Driver'. After finishing this, exit the main set up window. You may install the sample media files now or later as you like. Don't remove the cd now.
5.Click on the samsung pc studio icon on the desktop. Select connection type as 'USB' and press next. When you are asked to connect the phone through data cable, do it. Ignore (not cancel) the 'add new hardware' window, if it pops up.
6. After a while, D900 will be identified. press Finish.
If D900 is not identified and elapsed time goes on endlessly, cancel the connection wizard, remove the data cable from pc and connect again. The 'Add new hardware' window wizard will start. Proceed by pressing next and it will install the drivers. Then restart pc and try opening PC Sudio again.
Try it and write back. Take care about the 3 points mentioned in CAPS, above.
Please help me. I tried to connect my Samsung D900 with my PC. All the installations from the CD was donloaded and I upgraded the D900 from the internet but still it refuse to connect with the UCB cable to the PC. I use Windows XP and was previously ok.
Thanks for your support.
