MP3 Ringtone Alternatives
OK everybody, here it is. If the whole mp3-ringtone debate is too hot or too expensive than I found a do-it-yourself alternative ;)
Thanks to YAMAHA we have an increased, powered-up MMF format (MA-5) with MA-7 to follow. In 'mono' mode it can play ringtones up to 24khz, that is pretty good and almost on the same level as mp3.
And the best thing, the WAV-> MMF (SMAF) converter is free for download from the Yamaha web site. It sounds amazing and these Sharp phones can have ringtones up to 300kb, so you can squeeze in some quality and lenght. They sound REALLY good! So far I made a coldplay clocks ringtone and heaps others, I'll share them if you want.
YES, you can play MP3 music & MP3 Ringtones. You will need to download mp3 ringtones from a wap server and they MUST be copyright (DRM) protected. You can protect the files yourself and then upload them to a wap server, there is no other way to transfer the files via bluetooth/infrared, as Vodafone has disabled the transfer of DRM files to the root (phone) directory.
You may also play .3gp or .mp4 video files as ringtones. 3GP videos work flawlesly though mp4 files will need to be downloaded from the Vodafone web site or similar.
Bluetooth wireless works perfectly from phone -> PC without the PC Manager, though PC -> Phone is only possible through the Phone Manager.
Phone Phone transfers work flawlessly on any files that ARE NOT copyrighted (DRM).
In general this phone has had a fix of all bugs that were available on the GX30.
please i want to know if i can download
music videos and mp3s from other bluetooth
compactable phone to sharp802. i have heard people say it can not play mp3. is this true
The 902SH & 802SH BOTH share the AQUOS 256k screen. Both screen have a resolution of 320 x 240 px and have a much better contrast than the GX30. Pictures on the GX30 are too light and "dull" compared to the V802/902SH.
Sharp at the moment are definatelly first-runners in screen technology, the AQUOS has a 160 degree viewing angle where colors and contrast barely fade. This means that people next to you can see as clearly as you.(Is that a good thing :P )
I hope that in the next series they will software enable the 24-bit screens (16 million colors), like Samsung and Panasonic are currently developing.
great info, obviously 802SH and 802SE are very different. 802SH can definately play mp3 and has very good sound quality. Does anyone know how the 802sh's screen compares to 902sh's screen? thanks
V802SH vs V902SH
The V802 is different from the V902 that it doesn't have:
- a 2MPx camera with autofocus & optical zoom (1.3MPx)
- outter screen
Other than that they are identical in software and even share the same bugs...
They are great phone, and the V802 is a bit cheaper than the V902.
Again, SONY ERICSSON does have it's own model, the V802SE, but that is completely different from the V802SH (SHARP). Read my previous post for further info.
MP3 Player & Sony Ericsson
Rumour 1: This phone doesn't have the "Mp3 function.
I own a V802, and let me tell you, listening to MP3 is bliss. Sounds excellent, but the MP3's must NOT exceed 192kbps.
It's a 3G chaku-uta phone, which only supports DRM-MP3 ringtones.
Rumour 2: This phone is made by SE.
To understand the Japanese labeling and categorization of phones. Vodafone labels all their phones with a V for Vodafone.
After that follows the serial number, 702, 802, 902, 903 etc.
Followed after that is the manufacturer:
SH = Sharp
SE = Sony Ericsson
N = NEC
NK = Nokia
T = Toshiba
F = Panasonic (?)
(This labeling also applies to NTT Docomo/ FOMA)
So the whole Serials is Vodafone 802 Sharp (V802SH). The Sony Ericsson model is the V802SE and the Nokia model is the V702NK.
Hope this helps!
To those who can't play mp3. Sorry but I read the features of the sharp 802 online. And it doesn't have the mp3 feature. Check it out here:

Anyone know if they have released English software version for the 902 SH. I have the bundled software disc but it contains no English install option. Drivers work no probs.
