thank you. I have tried with a .mp4, but it didn't work, maybe the resolution was too high, as you say. I'll try to get a video converter for macintosh....
HI, at least it goes well with .3gp or .mp4 format video.
Moreover, the resolution of the video should be no more than QCIF(176*144).
Before transfering your video file to the memory card, you need to change it to the above formats by using some software like "total video converter".
Hope it helps.
does anyone know which kind of video files can be played by this phone? All those I have tried, it says 'cannot play'..... :-(
i guess so, because when you format the memory card on the phone, it doesn't stay empty. Folders like vodafone and private are created again!
yes Eras3r, that's a good solution, and they are not expensive, aren't they? But if the card is formatted on the phone, will the Mac read/write it?
-solution:get a memory card reader!it's not so practice as bluetooth but i think is the only way! in my opinion for your giga card is much better the MC reader than bluetooth!
thank you Eras3r. Unfortunately, you are right. And 'Handset manager 'is a program who works with Windows, right?
I have Macintosh operatin system. Ahhhh, everything is wrong for me!!
It means no push-button open. The Panasonic V7 has this function. Also, is there any reputable online shop that sells this phone at a fair price?
Can it be used in Canada?
-only way to put files in the memory card is with the handset manager.
when you transfer files with other phones you can't choose the directory,it means you can't receive files from other phones bigger than 4/5 mb.
-it means that you can't answer calls when you open the phone.
hello friends, I received my 770sh, and it is great. I also have put a 1 giga micro SD card, it seems it works fine. I have one question. I am able to choose between the handset memory and the memory card when I save pictures taken with the phone (I have changed the settings in the menu), but when I download via bluetooth from my computer, the items go directly to the handset memory without asking. The same for mp3 or any file. Does anyone know where to change the settings?
Thank you very much.
"No active flip" means that the phone doesn't have a "spring" to open or does it simply mean that it doesn't answer calls when you open it?
If you mean by real ringtones can you set any mp3 or aac audio file to play as a ringtone? the answer is yes. First load the audio file onto the external memory card. Then go to menu\my items\music & ringtones. Access the external card and choose the audio file. Then using Options\Advanced\Move transfer it to the phone's internal memory. Make sure the file is not too large for the phones internal memory - large files will take a little while to transfer - be patient!
Alternatively you could use bluetooth to load the file. Either way you can then set it as a ringtone. Note: you can only set files which are loaded in the phone's internal memory as ringtones.
Also, the supplied headphones are stereo and are good quality.
Can anyone tell me if this phone actually plays real ringtones???
And if theres is someway to put new games using bluetooth, istead of using just gprs
I've tried a Nokia bluetooth headset and it worked fine! So, it should work fine with other brands!
About the included headset, it's dual, but I'm not sure if it's mono or stereo.I haven't had the time to test it more yet. I tried it a bit with only one of the earphones' and I heard allright. But, it wasn't a loud enviromnent. I'll have to test it more.
One more point, according to information on the Sharp mobile phone site (not mentioned in the manual) the phone is limited to MicroSD cards of up to 512MB. I haven't tested it with larger sized cards.
This is a superb phone, really elegant and classy. Here are some tips for some of the points raised by some previous posters:
1.Battery Power: Reduce the LCD brightness and set the mobile service to GSM only. This will make a big difference to the battery life.
2.Video playback: MPEG-4 encoded video loses synchronisation with AAC encoded audio on this phone. The phone specifies H.263 for video (even though it will play MPEG4 files). Use a high quality H.263 setting (e.g. 240kbps at 15 fps) and you will get a very good result with AAC audio and no loss of sync. There is free software available (I recommend Super) that allows you to experiment with every possible combination.
3.The music player supports MP3 playback at the maximum 320kps of the MP3 spec. This is a real plus (for example the Motorola V3x only supports up to 192kps).
I own a sharp 770, my comments and some responses to your questions:
1. Yes the flap does move a bit when closed over the other one.
2. Yes when video is enlarged th picture and sound seem the lose sync. This is probably because it is reading from the memory card which makes it slower. (Still looking for a solution)
3. On the whole it is a good phone but compared to my old Sony Ericsson K700i it has a lot of weak features. Bluetooth is one of them!
hello, can someone tell me which kind of memory cards (microSD, right), is it OK if I buy a 1Giga byte (transflash)?
Anonymous; about the battery: you can check out the official stats on this site but to summarise, it's pretty poor. That beautiful crystal clear screen eats energy up fast.
You'll need to recharge it often but my biggest gripe is the way that it gets down to one bar of power then all you get is 6 short bleeps over about 30 seconds and then it's dead. My old Sony used to start warning you three hours before it died! Sometimes I'm in a call and it bleeps to tell me its energy is low and before I have time to grab the recharger it's dead.
Anyway, if you want more details visit http://my-sharp-770sh.blogspot.com/ .
Having said all that, it is a great phone - stunning to behold and performs well, but it's always power hungry!
