No need to change the mp3 file format in anyway just simpky move the song you want as a ringtone from the music foler to the ringtones folder. easily done.
It is NOT officially possible to install java MIDlets on samsung handsets (excluding smartphones) via bluetooth, IrDa, USB cable or serial cable. MIDlets can only be downloaded by Over-The-Air (OTA) via a download server.
There is currently no method for installing MIDlets on other platforms other than by OTA/GPRS via a download server.
Very good phone, but how can i upload java games to the phone from my PC???

can it hv ringtone and vibation at the same time during phone call?
is it possible to view videos with this phone on fullsreen mode? please, i need to know fast!!
listen , you don't need a FM radio on a phone, you have a MP3 player on it, and its no big deal, samsung are second in the mobile market and they don't need any advice from people in these opinion pages! No radio no big deal! nowerdays you can pick up a portable radio from a local poundland! so stop complaining
for the one who wants to set a mp3 us a ring tone ,og to to the file maneger and fine your mp3 music (whervever you saved it ) open it and go to options and chose "set us a ring tone"
Here is my attempt to answer some of your questions...
The camera does indeed have a flash...this is not set as 'on' automatically, so where you fill you need to use it, you either switch in on via the menu on the right touchkey or by pressing #. Its not as great as the xenon flash on the Sony Ericsson K800 but who cares. I have, and most people have digital cameras these days. If I want to take print quality photos I'll use my digital camera...not my mobile phone. Besides the flash on the Z650i is pretty much as good as the flashes on most other mobile phones.
Next up...the ringtone issue. There are seperate folders for each category of file(music, video, etc)which is used for the purpose as of the name of the folder
Sounds confusing? It's not. Basically you just need to put the music file you wish to use as a ringtone into the 'ringtones' file. I have noticed that some MP3 files don't always get recongised. This maybe an error with the phones firmware - hopefully an update will be provided soon. Want my advice? use AAC. Works everytime and requires less storeage. Just remember to pop it into the ringtones section if need be. You the samsung software for this, it allows you to convert files VERY easily before uploading to your phone.
The phone does indeed have touch sensitive buttons. Looks great - feels great - Greatly annoying. Unfortunately the cancel botton is very easily hit, and when it does it finishs what you're doing and exits straight to the mainscreen. Unless you're in a program which requires authorisation prior to closing.
This isn't really an answer to any queries but I thought I'd share with you my thoughts re: the fm radio.
It would appear samsung have NO intention of putting one in any of their handsets. I'm not stupid enough to take any phone apart myself, but I have a friend who is. It would appear most samsung phones are so slim and small because features are literally crammed in. The Z650i is no expection to the rule, it would of been a stuggle for the designers to squeexe a radio receiver into the handset. I don't think its a major issue though. It would've been nice don't get me wrong, but FM personal radios are not expensive and as they are dedicated they're always going to be far superior to a radio on any phone.
Hopefully GSM arena will give provide one of their mega-reviews soon, in the meantime I'll try to pop on and answer any more questions people have.
