Hey skater 42, its 1.40 Euro version.
and weird i'll try that software out and see if it works. dbPowerAmp , whats your recommendation, do you think i should convert my mp3s with this program to wav then convert it back to mp3? and see if it works?
John - I noticed that the only difference between japanese and euro is that "people want to have the option of typing japanese" ... thats the only difference i really saw when i was reading forums.. but i would have the euro cause of mp3/mpeg4 and mp3 ring tone playback.
"4- what is the original security cod for the device cuz i cat format or do anything to the fone :S"
the answer to this is 9999.
Hey skater just wondering do you know what teh major differences are between jap and euro firmware other than language and loss of WAP and MMS functionality? because i have seen alot of ppl talk bout it but i dun see the major diff???

MP3 & other formats
The 802SH, 902SH, GX30, TM150 & TM200 are definatelly not allowing more than 192kbps. I am not 100% on the reason, but I suspect that this is to safeguard the correct functioning of the mp3 player.
As you may have noticed, saving and retrieving data from the SD/MMC card can take a bit, so this must be the upper limit for the transfer rate. If it would be higher than that the phone might not be able to "stream" the song off the SD/MMC card. I hope this makes sense, but as I said this is my theory and isn't confirmed.
Don't get confused:
- limit: 192kbps
- limit: 48KHz
Kouji: Did your song maybe play at 32KHz? I tried to play a file at 224 & 320kbps, but it's not possible.
Up to the 902SH, Sharp fones only supported MP3 & MP3PRO file formats. Both formats are max 192kpbs, 48khz.
No other formats were supported before the 903SH.
The 903SH also supports AAC and AAC+ files.
Software to use
the dbPowerAmp program is excellent for converting WAV, WMA and AIFF to MP3! I would recommend to buy this program or give it a try! It is also upgradable for new formats!
It will correctly encode MP3 files, that's what I'm using and it works perfectly!
Also, let me know what Firmware you are using!
Type this into your phone: *01763*8371#
Unfortunately.. i have a 320kbs song on my phone and it seems to play fine.. weird ain't it? and know of any fixes? cause i tried like different things.. and still no luck for me.. i tried converting to wave then back.. no luck.. thanks for all the help before your a god at this phone.
can't play the mp3s because they are either:
- Above 192kbps
- Variable bitrate
- bad file type
Hey anyone having problems playing mp3s? for some reason.. i can only play certain ones.. and other ones can't play.. like it'll show up the the "sounds and ringtones folder" but it won't be able to play.. and then in media player it won't show up at all.. any of you guys having problems like this?
no you cannot use the 802SH with Japanese firmware. To my knowledge the unlocking has something to do with flashing the Phone to EU Firmware first. Now I'm not all technical about it, but my reseller explained it this way.
The only way you can use the Japanese 802SH is through a VF KK USIM card which must be subscribed to the Vodafone KK network. Roaming charges are incredibly high.
There is no difference between the JP and EU version of the firmwares. The menu is in a different order, but essentially all functions are the same. You have many more languages to choose from the EU version, which suits me and most other Europeans that are multilingual ;)
I can't find the 802SH any longer on ebay so I would advise to buy it soon! It's still in production of course, but I think with the 903/703 available no one would bother to import them any longer.
The phone is awesome though and the best I have had as yet!
If anyone can help me it would be appreciated.
If i purchase a 802 with the Japanese firmware, would i be able to use it with any sim card in Australia? If not is this the case with all the Japanese phones that they cant be used with a different sim without changing the firmware.
Jaox, you need to download the Sound Decorator to convert WAV to MMF. You will also need a MP3-WAV converter, I use dbPowerAmp for mine and it's EXCELLENT.
Once the files are in WAV you then simply open them in the Decorator and crop and cut the files to the piece that you want to repeat. Make sure it is converting to Mono 24khz and then save it as a MMF. It cannot be more than 300kb, which is ~15 seconds or more, it will be twice as long on 12khz.
The Authoring tool which you have lets you combine 64 poly ringtones with wave sounds, so you can mix poly tones and voices to make ultra-long poly ringtones that sound like real music clips.
Hope this helps!
i need some help with the MA5 converter please:
i went to the YAMAHA site and downloaded the, in the section of Authoring Tools, the ATS-MA5-SMAF program. is this the one that you use to convert mp3 files into SMAF? because i can´t do it! please help me...
Thanx sooo much Skater!I did it!It took me some hours to figure out how it works but now i can have mp3s as ringtones!Now i can say that i LOVE my mobile phone! :-) I would like to communicate with you too Skater so if you want drop me an email..Cheers!
have a read at some previous posts I wrote here!!! It's called MMF (MA5) and has 24khz ringtone support!
Hey guys i own this mobile and i love it!But i need some help..I cant put my favourites mp3s as ringtones..They are not supported!Can anyone help me?Is there any way of transforming the mp3s into somethine else type of audio so i can put them as ringtones?Thanx!I wish someone will answer..
802SE vs. 802SH
My friend used to have a 802SE (Sony Ericsson) and it is a very nice phone. I played a little bit with it, though mainly with the camera and menu functions.
POSITIVES of the 802 Sony Ericsson
- nice design
- outside screen
- very bright LED light
- nice animated backgrounds
- excellent call quality
- rotating camera
The camera was average at night time (CMOS) but took pretty decent pictures in daytime lighting. It's rotating so it can be easily used as a mirror or for Video Chat of course ;)
The MP3 player I didn't really get to test too thoroughly because I had no headset. The speaker was OK, though not the loudest.
- Memory Stick Duo instead of SD
I cannot say much more about this handset, I wish I could have played more with it. I don't think it can compete with the 802SH (SHARP) camera, but other than that they are pretty equal I think!
i don´t know if the software of the phones is diferent but in portugal i use MMS and GPRS with no problems! how is that possible?
the camera is one of the best 1.3mega pixel in the market...however my phones doesn´t have the option of taking continuous shots (9 pictures straight away) despite that option is on the manual...
i already droped it on the floor 2 or 3 times and nothing hapenned, it's made in japan so it has a superior quality hehe
thank you Skater42 for the info. now i want to know which is better between v802se and v802sh in terms of camera and screen quality,video recording and playback,mp3,sound quality,
battery life,which has more features? and the
overall better phone. i think i can do without gprs for now.
