Anonymous, 01 Sep 2008Hi! please let me know and help me how and where to download to have a games for my celphone? ... moreI hope this tutorial will help you install games on your cellphone. This tutorial is for samsung F480.However, this works perfectly on my phone sgh z 170. I just copied this from sensesme under the GSM-Forum) at (http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=609664).
1. Download Driver & File Explorer from
2. Uncompress (or extract to) SAMSUNG_Composite_USB_Driver_4_34_WHQL.zip and execute Setup.exe.
3. Connect F480 to PC. First time you should be prompted with a 'device installed and ready' message.
4. Execute TkFileExplorer_2.2.exe
5. Go to Settings - COM.
6. Scroll down Port window: You should get just one COM option. Choose it and press OK.
7. Go to File - Connect. You should get the F480 File System Tree at TkFileExplorer bottom half side.
8. Go to /Exe/Java/Games
9. Create a New Folder for your game
10. At TkFileExplorer PC upper side select game JAD/JAR files and copy to F480 created folder using drag&drop or right button menu Download option.
11. Repeat steps 9 & 10 for all games you want to install at a time.
12. Disconnect USB cable
13. Dial *#6984125*#
14. Go to Internals (Master Key: *#9072641*#)
15. Go to Storage Settings and select Update Java DB
Enjoy! ...and save money!
You do not need to change Samsung USB mode to Qualcomm. Leave it at its default Samsung mode (if you do not understand this just do nothing )
Once driver is installed, Samsung PC Studio 3 still works.
Since my phone is sgh z 170, I did some minor revision to this tutorial. I hope this will help you.
When I drag the the jar and jad files from the desktop of my computer to the window of TkFileExplorer under phone as I usually do with samsung PC studio, it was not downloaded. So I open the Local Lisk (C:) at the upper left side window of TkFileExplorer, and under Drive D I open desktop. However, the jar and jad files were not there. No jar/jar files to download! So I first open samsung PC studio and from the desktop of my computer I drag the jar/jad files into the "Other Files" and put them in a new folder then close the samsung PC studio.( note: each game should have its own folder). After restarting my phone (turn off and then on, this is necessary),I open TkFileExplorer. From the phone window of TkFileExplorer I open 'media' then 'Other Files', and then I drag the jad/jar file folder into the Local Disk (C:) at the upper left side of TkFileExplorer window. After transferring the folder I open 'Exe' then Java and then I drag the jad/jar folder from the local disk back into 'Java' folder. Under the the File Menu I click 'disconnect'. I then enter the codes into my phone and under Storage Settings I Update media database, Update Java DB, Update application database and Create Ax Dat File. When I returned to the 'Games and more' under my phone, the game was already installed!!!
Happy gaming and goodluck to all samsung users!!!
Once you are inside TkFileExplorer dont delete any built-in folders as this may damage your phone. Also before physically disconnecting the cable from your phone, disconnect it first from the File menu
Each game should have a jar and a jad file. If the game has only a jar file, you have to make a jad file from the jar file by using the java maker which you can download from (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Telephony-SMS-GSM/JADMaker.shtml)
All you have to do is to drag the jar file into the "Make Jad" window and a jad file will appear in the desktop.

Admiral, 12 Oct 2008Hi all. I've bought my Z170 today.
How long should I charge this phone for the first time?4 h... moremy charging time for this phone is 2 hours, but from what i learned through fixya.com, frequent charging shortens the lifespan of a lithium battery thats why its best to utilize the full extent of lithium battery before charging it again
also, one factor a lithium battery is consumed rapidly is frequent "extracurricular" usage, music, video, etc...
some say too much clear LCD is another factor
others say, a combination of vibration and tone is another one
thats why set up my vibration with silent profile
for the rest profiles, i used melody only
i dont combine them both...

Great phone for the price. Paid $79Aus on Vodafone prepaid. 3G, Video call, Bluetooth, microSD all the features i need. Came with two back covers a rubberized black and a matalic red. Standard contents in the box charger, battery and stereo headset.

But based on my samsung sgh z170 experienced, I found that in the pre-configuration, it was pre-configured to Vietnam. So I pre-configured it to philippines. Here's how I did it: In the idle mode press *#6984125*# , it will open the admin setting.1) Software Version 2) Pre- configuration 3) Network and call setting 4)internals. Open 2)pre-configuration and enter the operator code *#73561*# then select Philippines. That's all. By the way the master key for the 4)internals is *#9072641*#. Just be careful, repeatedly opening the internals will sometimes slow down your cellphone's performance for several minutes, but it will return to normal, just wait for several minutes or hours.Particularly dont open the Create NV under the Storage Settings, it will change the languange settings ( maybe just in my case- it was changed to some asian language!). But I was able to restore the English language by openig settings in the idle mode, choose 4)phone settings then under phone settings choose 1)language. I just research these codes from the internet. Thanks.

If the gprs is already activated, you will see a G symbol at the upper left side of your screen. However, even if my gprs was already activated< I still cannot surf the web. The representative advise me to contact globe service center for the activation.
