To anyone who has the sx633. How easy is it to upload mp3 music files to the phone? And can you use it as a ringtone or do you have to trim the size down first before you can use it as a mp3 file ringtone?
matthew, you can change it by pressing the upper-right button - the one above 3.
i have that phone and it's great - the only problem i have is that nobody can take off my simlock here, in poland.. guess i have to wait.
Ive heard rumours that this phone requires a DRM (digital rights management)wrapped MP3/MP4 before it will allow you to assign the file as a ringtone. This Means that you have to buy the Mp3 or MP4 from your carrier before you can assgn the tone to be a ringtone .....sucky!
u bought ur 705 in softbank? does it still have the vodafone logo on the phone?
Ive just bought a 705sh from softbank here in japan, the overall phone is pretty good. But...
does anyone know how the hell english predictive text works, i cant get it to work at all, the phone operates in english but when typing msgs etc the pad will only type single letter at a time??
I am so far unable to use .m4a/.aac files as ringtones on my Japanese 705SH. I've tried files under 300 kb, on the phone memory and on the card memory, still nothing. Suggestions, or am I screwed?
too bad that this phone is only a 2 megapixels phone with a CMOS camera lens.... if its a 3 megapixels with a CCD lens and key buttons like 903sh, i will definitely consider this phone.....but i dun like HK's SX633 smartone-vodafone fw....coz SV really suck at making fws
To the reviewer above, you obviously posted more than once. Get a life and stop posting garbage reviews. You are obviously bitter that you could not even get your hands on this phone to review it. Spare reviewers your brainless comments.
Now for a review of the phone from an actual owner/user:
I have the SX633 SmartTone Vodaphone. It's pretty much the same as the 705 but with different firmware to accomodate language.
The UI is somewhat complicated to use at first but with all Sharp phones, it really takes some getting use to and changing the UI is not something Sharp has planned anytime soon.
Despite the difficult UI, the sound quality of the phone is amazing. It's crisp, clear...I was simply amazed this mobile could play my tunes better than some of my MP3 cell phones. I have yet to run a movie on this phone so I aplogize I have no comments for that feature as of yet...
The screen, as usual, is brilliant. The small screen in the front of the phone is somewhat useless though as it is often quite difficult to see the little icons and lettering for Caller I.D. If this is Sharp's way of implementing design improvement or change for their line of cell phones, it does not win me over at all. The small screen at the front is definitly not a value-added benefit. Perhaps it would be better to remove the front screen to bring down the price a little...
Portability - the Sharp 705/SX633 is convenient to carry around (this is obvious). The 2megapixel camera was a fair trade off to slim down its size. Besides, at 2 megapixels, it is good enough to take decent photos for print. The switch on the outside of the phone that changes camera modes is also a rather cute touch...it gives the cell phone a little bit of photo versatility.
All in all, the Sharp 705 / SX 633 is a decent phone.
Sharp is Blunt get a move on Sharp or get out of the way so annoying seeing same product recyled 10OX like the V3.
AND ALL THESE GREAT BENEFITS OF 705SH
For rediculous price of $450!!!!!!
WHAT'S UP SHARP?
Why should I choose you and not Panasonic SA7? Only because you have garbage quality video call (which is not in the U.S. anyway) and because you have a card slot????
No, I don't need a card slot on a phone!
I need great batterry performance for my bluetooth, and strong, stylish durable design. That's why I choose Panasonic!!!!
Now, Sharp got infected
with slimness as well!!!
WHAT DO YOU NORMALLY GET FROM A SLIM PHONE?
-Small batterry capacity
-Unconfortable phone holding
-Low earpiece sound quality
-Unusable Bluetooth (because of small batterry)
Can someone tell me how the "face recognition" work? What has it to do with my normal daily life?
I want to buy a phone but I don't know which..I like this one but I have doubts about it: the trasference of photos to a computer it's easy?; how many days battery keeps alive?; and about camera quality?is it good?
I apreciate that you answer me as soon as possible!I need a phone urgently!
my friend changed his phone from 903sh to 705sh....and he regret about the change... well the only thing which is good about this phone is the slim part..no other but i do think that 903sh is a whole lot better than 705, 904sh...
SHARP....u r the best of the best.....to be honest...i love sharp phone i owned sharp sx813 ....huuuuhhuhuu....this is the best phone in the world......honestly
I recently left Japan and when I cancelled my cell (a 705SH), they took the SIM card so I'm unable to view all my saved mails and pictures. Is there any way to access these files? Do I have to unlock it to do this? Thanks and sorry if this is an uninformed question.

smartone-vodafone will unlock the fone for 800HKD. the fone lang can be either english or chinese
I think that you must have the Sharp 770SH not the 705SH cos the 705SH is sold through Vodafone Japan and isnt unlockable 1st, you will need to get network information from your service provider.
Did you know that this phone will change from a Vodafone 705SH to a =SoftBank 705SH?? Softbank will take over vodafone KK on the 1st october and these new handsets are going on sale 19th Aug i have seen but i wouldnt imagine that we will see them until october.
This is the same with all sharp and toshiba phones
- Vodafone 904t - Softbank 904t
they have changed the colours on the phone, the Vodafone 904Sh was Black, Violet and Blue but the Softbank 904SH will be White, Pink and Navy Blue
