bad batery. picture get blurry when picture size is set at big-biggest. no usb sinc cable.
my friend's right. no one can tell you what it's like, you have to experience it for yourself. borrowed my friend's phone for a day, and boy, i want to have one of my own.
what's the purpose of the charging "dock"? they could have included a cigarette lighter charger instead.
would a 1G SD card slow the phone down? which would you suggest i use? an SD card or an MMC?
what other features can i take advantage of?
My video folder doesnt have a sd video folder
and what format does the videos have to be in?
can the phone be used as an e-book viewer? can it read ms word/excel files? how about pdf files? how?
would you mind sending me mp3 ringtones? and can i send mp3's from my laptop to the phone using infrared?
btw, my email's firstname.lastname@example.org
can you use .wma as ringtones? or how do you convert songs from CD's as ringtones? is there a software for that? thankies.
you have to clean the camera lens often since it gets dirty often.
long time to download pictures to the computer using bluetooth/infrared, havent tried the usb cable though since it is not included in the package.
my unit did not come with the 32MB SD card. came from japan.
my battery lasts only 24hours. only one bar remains, so it means you have to charge it.
was able to flash it. openline woohoo! no gprs and mms though.
excellent bluetooth, with safety features.
nice phone. you get to see the photo of the one calling you. or even the one sending you an SMS! great!!!
you can assign videos as your ringtone/ringvideo! awesome!
28mb shared memory? oh c'mon?!
no picture viewer. difficult to browse pictures.
No i dont have it wrong, the Japanese firmware has been patched so that you can use Australian sim card and network providers for MMS & GPRS. As i said before GPRS work flawlessly while sending MMS is fine receiving them is sometimes unreliable.
It is only the Japanese firmware that has been patched the European hasnt. I have the European running on optus and i cant use it while it works on the patched Japanese firmware which is running on optus too.
I'd be a bit careful when you generalize "poor" reception.
I think reception is remarkably well, but I live in a town, as where rural or other country-side towns might lack network infrastructure. This doesn't mean that the phone is underperforming, just that you have crap coverage.
There's always two to blame.
I explained this before, it doesn't matter what firmware you use, your phone must be approved on your network. Japanese 802SH only work because they are on a ROAMING contract.
No, camera sounds can never be turned off (unless you break the speaker). Reasons are simple: you wouldn't want to be spied on with a mobile phone, would you?
Mobiles can be taken into places where cameras would not be allowed. You cannot disable the sound for that reason. Fair is fair.
If you are running the European firmware you cannot use WAP/GPRS/MMS. If you are running the Japanese firmware, then you are able to use these, but receiving MMS can sometines be unreliable.
BIG phone. NO "beep once/ discreet" function. POOR signal/reception. other than those, a real value for money.
Short question guys. Can you guys use the wap and gprs functions? I can't seem to use mine..
Could there be a problem with my unlocking or is it just the service provider at my place?
Hey guys! I'm not sure if this matter was brought up before, but going through all those pages kinda makes my head do back flips :P
Question is, is there a way to turn off the sound for the camera? I tried checking the menus but it seems that it doesnt say anything about how to turn it off..
Thanks in advance :D
the info is correct. I will hopefully finish a review very soon and will put up all this info.
BLUETOOTH & JAVA
Java games cannot be transferred by bluetooth or any other way except WAP/UMTS download.
Bluetooth can transfer anything else but.
MP3 style ringtones
MMF 5 by Yamaha can produce MP3-like (NOT MP3)ringtones that sound just as good.
Read previous posts to find out more.
first of all, use DB to convert the mp3 into a wav, get it from www.dbpoweramp.com
when you convert to .wav, set:
Bit As Source, FREQ: 24000Hz and 1 Channel (Mono)
conversion takes seconds.
second, launch Yamaha's WSD (Wave Sound Decorator)
open the wav you just converted
go to EDIT -> Sample Type -> and uncheck both boxes (Resampling Freq and Mono Conversion) since you did these 2 in DB, its uneccesary.
Select MA-5 in the upper left drop down menu, now I have noticed that MA-5 in techno makes it a bit too loud, so you should experiment.
after you select the part of the file you wish to play on the phone, go to Edit -> Trimming. this will delete the rest.
make sure your file is UNDER 300kb (you can tell the size of the remaining file after trimming by looking at the bottom right part of the program, in the info bar).
save as .mmf
now, in your Sharp transfer utility (or whatever its called) simply click on the 'Melodies' tab, click browse and find wherever you saved it. select it and click upload to phone. to set this as a ringtone, go to your phones menu (i have a 802SH), My Items -> Sounds & Ringtones (when you upload through your utility, it automatically puts it there).
to skater, correct me if there are improvements for this. thanks.
