Hi Foxx, I got the data cable from e bay the item number was 120020241966 and the seller was mamboosa_life. I only paid about 99p plus about £4.00 for the p&p - it arrived in a couple of days with disk.
Thanks Lin C, can you tell me the website you ordered the data cable?
Hi Lee, I bought a plastic brandless 20 in 1 card reader for £3 exclude the shipping fee. I think £5 is OK.
cheers FOXX !
cheers lin !
yeah the fone is a top quality fone made up with it!
i,ve ordered a 512mb micro sd off e bay £16, also i,m watching a card reader on e bay too! price all in with post and packaging under a £5er! is that a good price foxx? thanx guys!
Lee & Foxx - firstly i bought a bluetooth dongle but I couldn't get it to work (not very computer literate!!) I think it might have been my computer. So i went shopping on line and ordered a data cable (fairly reasonable price and it came very quickly). I can now use the handset manager which should be on the disk you get with the phone. I download music either from Vodafone live or i've copied alot of my albums and changed them to mp3 and then uploaded onto the phone with the handset manager. I've copied photos this way too. Downloaded videos at the weekend from Vodafone live (special offer 99p each! bargain).
Lee I think you can change the setting on the phone for incoming messages - you might have it on increasing volume?
The handset manager has all sorts of weird and wonderful things you can do - record your own music, copy your data information like your diary/tasks from your computer.
Hope this helps.
Hi Lin C, totally be with you, this is the best phone I've ever had. It's not 519mb but 512mg by the way.
How did you get the data cable, it isn't in the original vodafone's little red box, is it?
Hi Lee, since I don't have a data cable, I'm using a card reader. You can copy any type of files in a MicroSD via a card reader, it's just like a flash disc. And yes, when there is a sms, the alert does come in an increasing volume.
hi lin, made up some of our comments helped ya! FOXX is the main man on this fone! he,s helped me a lot!
couple of questions for ya!
how did ya get ya music on2 the card? was it with a card reader or data cable?
also when ya have an incoming message does your text alert start coming in low then gets higher?also what type of files can ya save straight to the memory card?
I think the phone is XCLNT and the additional info I've had from this website (Lee and Foxx) has really helped.
The battery does run out fairly quickly but you get used to that and the USB cable also charges the phone which is good.
I got a Micro SD card off an online sale shop I think it's 519 mg and I've got loads of music, pics and downloaded some XCLNT videos for 99p each on Sunday.
My only problem with it is that it can be hard to open especially when in a hurry. Battery life could be longer but apart from that it's one of the best phones I've had - and it looks good.
Hi Lee, generally speaking, I satisfy the battery life of 770sh. It can last over 3 days, I don't have many calls though. About 10 messages and an hour mp3 play per day.
does anybody know the wap gprs settings for o2 contract? if any1 does could they please post em! just got this fone and i think the only down side is the 5 mb user memory! but ya can aswap n change pics tones around, store em on the pc!
to FOXX nice1 for the info when i was thinking of getting this fone!
also how long u guys battery last? i,ve charged mine twice already only ad it couple of days! could this be as it needs a good few charges to build the battery strength up! cheers guys, lee.
Do you know what you are talking about? If the phone is branded then it takes up more memory? thats bullsh*t man, The sharp 770sh cannot be unbranded, the phone isnt sharp'd and then vodafone branded it, the 770SH only comes with vodafone branding, exclusive to vodafone.
it has 20mb memory however that's shared memory including all the features it has. eg calendar, alarm, etc. also if your phone is branded then you'll have less memory installed. for the provider to install a default network menu he has to use from the shared memory.
Hi,Philaslasher. I got exactly the same problem with you, sometimes the screen turn white and the phone doesn't response any more. But I went to vodafone and they gave me a new phone, thank god it never happens afterwards.
It surely doesn't have to be a vodafone MicroSD. You can try some online sellers and they get much better price.
I'm using a 512MB SanDisc MicroSD, and I got it for £17.
I've had this phone for a few months now and it passes my standards. The only bad things are:
1. My phone only came with 4.5 Megabytes of internal memory.
2. Sometimes the phone crashes when I push buttons too fast when listening to music, it just doesn't respond so I have to remove the battery.
I recently bought a 128Mb Micro SD from Vodafone costing £15.
How much memory can this Phone Handle with those Micro SD cards? D
oes it have to be a Vodafone Micro SD card?
To luis, mine is only 5mb as well. It is said on Sharp's website that 770sh has 20mb internal memory but only 5mb memory for user use(my item). I don't think there is a way to activate the rest.
To Henry, I guess it can use any sim cards when unlocked. You should ask vodafone to make sure.
To debbie, I never used a handset manager. Maybe your phone memory doesn't have enough space, or maybe your MicroSD has writing protected. I can't think of any other reasons, you'd better ask a vodafone staff.
It came to my attention that this phone has 20mb internal memory, but when i go to see my internal memory, it says that i have only 5mb. Is this normal, is there something that i can do to activate the rest of the internal memory, or is it a bug?
hi... can anyone help me? i cant download music from my pc to my 770SH. its keeping on telling me 'could not be saved to my items'. why is this so?
thanx FOXX for the good advice once again! gold wavwe i will check it out matey, cheers for that.
i use nero wave editor, it,s already in the nero 7 package which i already had! don,t buy it tho as it is quite expensive! u may be able to download a free program that does the same thing! how wud u rate the fone up against the d600? which is the fone i have now, good luck lin c.
Hi Lee, it won't save things to memory card instead of phone memory while transfer via bluetooth, as far as I know no one can.
Technically, there are 3 ways of transfering data (including sounds, pics, etc.) via bluetooth, data cable or card reader.
Via bluetooth from another handset, the items will be automatically saved on phone memory.
Via a card reader, the items will be certainly saved on memory card.
I never used the handset manager(the software provided in the original package), because I neither have a computer with bluetooth nor a data cable. I think this way is the only way that you can transfer items directly into the memory card without taking it out.
I'm using 'goldwave' to shorten mp3s. You can shorten the mp3s by either remove all the unimportant parts of a song in time domain or rewrite the whole sound track in another higher compressed format. Good luck lin c.
HI Lee, Ta for that will give it a go. Can you give me the website info for the place to reduce the size of the mp3? I'm not 2 good at all this technical stuff.
I think the fone is gr8. Took me a long time to get to grips with its functions n had to buy a mem card which I was a bit miffed about. But now i've got to grips with the handset manager i think it's a gr8 fone.
