Jim Here again. After reading some stuff about using your fone as a modem & surfing via your PC, it looks like you get charged by your fone carrier on a mb rate + time used on the fone. You have the advantage (I guess) of getting a PC screen view of the web instead of your mobile's screen view of the web - which can be quite limiting. CHarges are the same whether you use your PC' screen or your Mobile's screen to surf. The dial up is from the same fone. Cheers, Jim K
Hi Dominic. I know that when you surf the internet through your mobile phone with your GPRS service (Not your PC), the charges get billed to you from your mobile fone carrier on a per mb rate (depending on your fone carrier)and there are flat rates for downloading tones & pics to yr fone. As far as using your phone as a modem for your PC, I have yet to try that. Not really game enough to try as I feel my per-second rate on my fone service will be relevant & not my normal internet access on my PC through my ADSL Router & ISP. I guess I'll probably try it & see what happens... Regards, Jim K
jim can you tell me what will happen? can this phone connect through the internet without paying from our subscriber?
Surferguy, that's a oddly new one for me... Not sure what the deal is there. Try uninstalling & then re-installing the PIM program & see what happens. Cheers, Jim K
chris henry try this at PIM window if ur phone is offline click file then setup put ur mobeile number or simply click ok! i hope itll work.
Great phone the camera is amazing....but I cannot get the PIM software to upload pics or sounds to the phone. I installed it but the options to upload pics or sounds is disabled in the software. Can any one assist ?
I need some help.. Everytime i go to upload ringtones/photos or whatever else to my pc via pim and file manager it goes to upload and then it tells me "video recording event was occurred" this is the first time its happend. It used to transfer files with ease. Can anyone help me? Jim u sound like u can??
i dunno why samsung still making 1.3 megapixel phone,samsung should concentrated in making phone with 2 or 3 megapixel!
this phone take a good picture but sonyericsson k750i and W800 is better rite?
Just so you know, Nero can convert your videos & mp3's to mp4 beautifully, suitable for your mobile. When you get it (including your license to use the Digital Plug-In) & work it out, you'll love it !! You'll be able to fit 4 to 6 times more media on your fone. To convert Audio, load Nero Smart Start & go to Audio & click on the "ENCODE AUDIO FILES" Button add your mp3 song & under "SETTINGS" choose your 'PRE-SET BITRATE" 64kbps is good but I wouldn't go lower than 48kbps. For Video Conversion to mp4, Go to Nero again, click on "DVD" and choose "CONVERT DVD VIDEO MOVIES TO NERO DIGITAL" or "NERO RE-CODE". Import your video, Click on the "MORE" button at the bottom left & on the right side where it says "NERO DIGITAL PROFILE" click on "MOBILE" .. Then off you go.... Cheers, Jim K
Oh Boy!!!. Sorry, Try "MENU" "9", "3", "8" Christian.. It's too early in the morning here for me... LOL Cheers, Jim K
OOOPSS!!! sorry, Dominic & Christian, your info that I gave you is swapped around. You'll work out what was for yourselves (& for others) I'm sure ...LOL Jim K
About Caller Number. Go to "MENU" press "8", "3", "9" and make sure caller ID is set to "ON" and checkmark the "WITH COVER DISPLAY" by going to it with your arrow down button & pressing the middle button called "OK/I". Hope that helps you activate caller ID Dominic..
Christian, you need the Latest Nero Ultra Edition (Ver 6.6xx)with the licenses to use the digital plug in . Go to any peer to peer pgm & get it. Cheers.. Jim K

Jim here again
Click on the link below for an extensive review of the phone. Cheers, Jim K
Just reading the info below mine & thought I'd put in my answers to some of your questions about the E730 phone. The photo quality may be 1.3 megapixels but the quality (detail) of the Pic is average. The zoom is great. Recording movies is ok and is at 20fps at low resolution. The ability to add a picture to a number in your contact list & also a ringtone pertaining to that particular caller is a great feature (Caller ID). I love the MP3 player. I have also found a great way to upload video clips perfectly and at one quarter of the size of the original Video, by using the "Convert to Nero Digital" program that comes with nero. It compresses the MPEG/Mpg/Avi file to a quarter of the size while maintaining quality. Same with Mp3's. Nero converts them to MP4 digital, which(depending on your compression settings)takes them down to a quarter or more of the original size. Which is great for a Fixed Memory phone such as the E730. The graphics on the main display is great & clear. The buttons are a great size & not troublesome to press. It's very user friendly & overall, the fone is great. You can get excellent buys of this fone via eBay as I did. Brand new. They sell in Adelaide Australia for around AU$670.00 to AU$720.00, but I got mine for AU$350.00 + $45.00 Postage. Do your maths... Regards, Jim K
To Talk via speakerfone, you must be in a call & then you press your "OK/I" button in the middle (your GPRS Button) That'll give you the choice to use speakerfone. Cheers, Jim K
To shum and Anreea this what i do with the same problem when i first connect it to usb. On the PIM manager click file then setup enter your mobile number then ok or simply just ok.
TO girish i have the same problem this phone cant upload mp4 files.
