But once you highlight them, the appearance is normal. Some pictures I took have problems too, like discoloration, etc. Wallpaper 2 turned into a distorted picture. But inspite of these problems, the phone is inexcellent working condition. Battery is a-ok, ringtones, music, are still great. Reset was already done but to no avail. Hope I can get help here. thanks. also from the Philippines.
alex, 20 Jul 2011Good day folks. Just want to ask If I Can fit a 2400 mAh battery in it, the same one fitted in... moremaybe.. yes maybe not.. its battery is so thick i think i cannot handle 2400mah.. 2000mah is enough dude.. this device can last for 1week with 3hours every day of call and 200text per day
Good day folks. Just want to ask If I Can fit a 2400 mAh battery in it, the same one fitted in an omnia hd phone? Thanks in advance. Comments will be highly appreciated...
great great device.. better than my previous e2121b more battery life very good screen.. colors are vivid nice camera.. my only complaint in this device is on the left side cover or the device where the headset and charger will be inserted the cover is so very difficult to put in place.. over all nice device..
a single charge lasts up to almost 2 weeks for me with heavy use, even if the keypad is set to always on..

AnonD-7798, 06 Jul 2011I get 22 days on average for the last 10 charges..abt 7 mnts of use.Well I am sure if you take the sim card out turn power save on and never touch it for anything or get calls it would last 22 days.

It's not on standby if you listen to MP3s on it. Everyone else who has the phone talks about at least three weeks of battery life, most about more than a month. You're either not genuine or your phone is broken.
I just got the phone from Amazon and started playing around. It's been six years since my last non-touchscreen-cellphone, but I'm not going to talk about that.
I have a minor correction regarding some of the reviews:
the LED-light switches on even when the cellphone is locked. Apparently it didn't in older firmware versions. It doesn't switch on when the phone is off.
The battery life is 6 days on standby or 5 with an hour of calls,where they get 67 days from is beyond me.

i tried to access a couple of trial java games that came with the phone to pass the time while waiting for dinner to be served. on the first 2 tries, i just got a message saying "java is unable to play the game". on the 3rd try, the phone restarted. when it prompted for the usual security password, there were already weird characters displayed. many of the menu labels have been courrupted. and also the screen alert texts.
did you get yours fixed? how long?
is it a recurring problem for you?
did you ask the technicians what triggers this? and what can be done to prevent this (in the absence of a fix)?
is there a bug fix update already?
anyone else here who encountered the same problem?
AnonD-11066, 16 Jun 2011just bought this phone last friday. but i can't use the pictures from the SD card as wallpaper... moreI had the same problem it wouldn't play the same music I had on my nokia phone which were AAC files,so I converted them to MP3 in itunes and they work.
What attracted me to this phone was the tough design dual speakers,large keypad and long battery life,but it has a terrible user interface which is a lot more complicated to use than a Nokia,it has some really awful ring-tones,with nokia you can have music on the memory card which can be used as ring-tones,but the only way to do it on this phone is to transfer them onto the main memory which is only 3 MB,so unless it's very low quality it just can't be done,the same goes for pictures,the dual speakers are supposed to be for noisy environments,but in practice make no difference over an ordinary phone,the keys are smaller than they look in pictures,but because they are rubbery they are nice to press and the battery life so far has lasted 4 and a half days with 2 hours of calls and is still almost fully charged even though I never charged when new,this phone is nice and good for people that like them basic or to last a long time,but the user interface is terrible and having an mp3 player and camera is a total waste of time.
