entitle your subject in the email "phone questions" and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I got this phone for about a week i basically know how to use it fully if u have any questions email me
everything else is fine esp its 3.2mp camera. One draw back is you can't attach a hanger to it.
you can't install themes on this fone, thats why its not working, the sis files u are installing (or attempting to) are files for the Symbian Smartphones, and is most likely a nokia theme file,
i m trying to install themes but can not get it installed, its a .sis file m copying it to OTHER directory of my cell fone's memory and after that i cant access it.
Hi Tracey; you can find your answer in the D900i forum as well. anyway here is the answer taken from Rajesh TIPS&TRICKS guide:
How to turn off keypad tones?
To turn off the keypad tone, slide tone and power on/off tone TOGETHER, press down volume-keys on the left side of the phone till zero, from the MAIN SCREEN. This is the quickest, and is the right method, if you want to keep ‘Theme’ as the dialing display font.
Also you can turn off (or change) keypad tones (menu 9-4-2) power on/off tone (menu 9-4-4) and slide tone (menu 9-4-5) independently. Thereafter, pressing volume key will not affect the corresponding tone.
If the keypad tone menu in your phone is INACTIVE, go to display settings…dialing display…font type and change ‘theme’ to ‘normal’. Then go back to keypad tone menu to turn off/change tone.
Ok after changing from my ex D900 to U700 i do have some comments for you all. Basically this U700 is smarter than D900, but some major function wise, they are both good.
First of all U700 only have 41714k of internal memory. Which is smaller than D900. But thats not really a problem if you have a memory card, pictures and videos taken can be directly send into the card.
In fact, the Video camera's resolution (Only 176x144) for U700 as compared to D900, its a loss. U700 doesnt have the "U menu" function. Wheres replaced by "application menu" function, which u can access to 4 menus- internet,voice call,message and End all application."application menu" can be accessed anywhere when you are using the phone, even while u are viewing you calender for example.
However U700's camera is amazingly good. For them who are not sure,U700 still have its"White balance" and "exposure metering(spot & metrix) " functions. It capture high resolution images like 2048x1536 (with auto focus on) within a sec. And Camera flash light can be set as "Auto" by default, whereby D900 has to be switched manually everything u use it. Camera has improve quite alot for U700. However the phone's defaults to take image horizontally(which means u have to turn ur phone horizontally to take straight pictures)- This cannot be changed. However its what u see and what u get for ur picture taken. Another interesting function for the camera is the "camera button" on the side of the phone. By pressing it slightly, you are actually auto focusing your picture, hold it and it's auto focus will stay there. Press harder and you are capturing. Cool huh? Images and Videos taken, can be send into your memory card straight away.
However U700 doesnt have the TV out-port function that D900 has.
For those of you who are afraid of your mobile phone's buttons get flatted or worn out, U700 could really be your best choice. Yes, the touch screen is sensitive, if its not, how do you press? lol. I believe what some of you mean is that the touch screen buttons are very close together, therefore always press the wrong key u desire. But without using much strength, you can play ur keys effortlessly with its touch screen and extra smooth "ipod like" turning navigation. It also has a very nice and bright classy white keypad light.
On the main dialing page, when you press a few numbers, the phone will automatically display names from the phonebook that has the same few number. Which means you dont need to access the phonebook and search for names now, if you know 2-4 numbers of the recepient.
You can custom create MMS with your desire background colours, ect. Customising and Creativity is quite alot in U700 i would say.
Java games are now stored inside the gallery section with images and sound. Interesting?
One cute thing about U700 is that it includes Chinese calender(not sure about other countries). Anyway im staying in singapore.
Phone feels very smooth and metallic. Solid too. Its like holding a metal bar. If you have greasy hands, i believe everyone does, the phone will get very greasy :\
I will update soon again when i have the time :)
Help ! How do I get onto Silent Mode, with incoming calls vibrating only ??
capricorn; when you connect the phone to a TV the TV simply replaces the phones screen.
this is working well no matter what you decide to do with the phone:
- play video.
- capture video.
- play games.
- view images.
there are some minor limitations (taken from the D900 user guide):
You cannot use a Bluetooth
stereo headset or the zooming
feature in TV Out mode.
I just want to know the tv out function. Does this mean that when you play games or open a java application, or view/create videos or view images, or when you read your messages everything can be viewed in TV? Or just a certain function can be viewed. Thanks.
