For all the guys in South Africa :
Picked up my S8300 yesterday, some nice surprises in teh box on MTN Anytime 200 (R279 per month - R200 anytime back)
Box includes a 2 year Garmap voucher
car cradle & car charger.
have not really used it enough to comment on it though, screen is really brilliant, cannot describe in words :)
one small problem : the 3 keys below the screen has no backlights, so inr the dark u cannot see them.
hi guys...anyone know where can i upgrade this phone software to make it not so lag or wat???
Why is this phone so slow, i just upgraded put everything from my G600 onto it and it is sooooo slow its unbelieveable. Plus why the hell did the y have to screw the txtin up so much, sometimes it'l let you add words and most of the time it just wont ask, for example typing we'll comes out as we.lk and when it finally lets you "add word" you cannot type in an apostraphy, what a joke. And i mean the phone does great things-brilliant things, but why did they screw up the basics????
Help any answers or resolutions???
I want To Get This Mobile But I Dont Know If It Is The Best Also I want A Good Phone That Does Not Brake So I thought I should Get This Phone But I Am Still Deciding .

Rands, 20 Jun 2009so u can only use pre-insatalled backgrounds?
Can i use a photo on the homescreen?
sorry f... moreyes, you can use any wallpaper you want, one of included, pictures, taken photos (even only frame from photo =really cool)
What cant be changed is the background when device is locked, example, screen is off, you want to check what time is it, you press button, the main screen will come up for second but with preloaded backgroun (there is 6 pictures) after few second it goes black again. But when u unlock the phone, you will have you r background, little confusing but this is the way how it is
