Hi all. Some SD cards don't need formatting. I suggest you insert the card first and see if it works. You will know anyway if it needs formatted. Some cards when formatted gets damaged. It's my experience. If you see the card icon on top of the screen when you insert it then it's ok otherwise you'll see a "broken card" icon. By then try format the card. Even if the seller will replace if it's broken or damaged, it's a hassle sending it back and wait for the replacemant. Just an honest advice. TNX
Hi, Yes you will need to format the miniSD before use.
Hi Henry: I recomend the Sharp 903 (euro) software, This version is FULLY unlocked and ALL features WORK!! I dont like the SX version softwares on the 703 902 an 903. They dont look as good as the euro version being ALL vodafone colours. Your choice but Euro is by fas the best. I have used 3 of the softwares... Vodafone 903SH (Jap testmode and fully unlocked) Sharp SX833 and now Euro. Euro being the best. Good LUCK!!
do i have to format the memory card before saving MP3 and stuff? i bought the 1GB and im not sure. thanks
so If I am planning to get a 903 this xmas? I can't get the JAP ver. anymore ? Or can it still be unlock? cause I heard there is a rumour about the 903 manufactured in November can't be unlock, but some ppl say it's false. So let's make it clear
I got Sharp v903 or sx 833 week ago, my computer recognized it as SX833.( i am not sure of which version i have) Its features are awsome, i can play mp3, mp4, 3gp. the problems i facing with are the folder icon of Organizer and Media play switched, evrery time i try to run a java apps a "not enough memory to run" message display, and the blue tooth manager software(which come which package) display " your phone version not supported by this software".
Should i upgrade to another version of firmware? if yes whcih one?
Any help is appreciated.....
hi all, i would like to ask how do i use the tv cable (Red, yellow and white cable)??? thx
I Just Got a sharp 903SH Jap version...lots of problems....but spoken to timsta for a firmware upgrade.neways i ordred it from importgsm guys.the phone is surprisingly excellent in terms of camera,screen quality simply brilliant.No phones can think of comin near to this cell.the keypads are awesome.very well spaced out.
Hi Guesboy. KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF A JAP!! it has been scrwewd with and they rename them to be a Vodafone V903SH, this version will only be fully suported by Vodafone Japan. So go for the German version!! WAY Better
File setup? It can play(or read)MP3 as well as MPEG4/ASF/AAC/AAC+ formats. I think it can play 3GP too as it is one option in video recording. I have 1GB mem card and keep most of my files on it leaving more space for the handset. I am telling all these according to my experience. Others may have more knowledge than me.
To ho. The MP3 player is not too bad on its built-in speakers but not as good as the SE "Walkphones". But the sound is very good with the headset that comes with it. The reason why it's a bit softer is being 3D stereo as the sound is "spreaded" around. But if it is set to Bass, the audio is better. All 3G phones has short battery life whether you use them or on standby because of higher resolutions and modem. You're lucky if they last more than 2 days. I would recommend to have a spare fully-charged battery.
There were some users of JP version who complained of "silent mode" and "shutting off" + trouvle putting mp3 files and sending MMS and so on. The Euro version which I am having has no trouble at all when it comes to basic functions. Menu system is simple and easy to follow much like the other Nokias. Video and photo are superb and unmatched by any phone in the market today. If somebody tells that any Nokia or Moto is better, don't believe them as they are lying. The word SHARP speaks for itself. And if you have the software bundle for dvd conversion and playback, you'll gonna snub all the phones around. It's the best quality this phone has.
how is the mp3 player on this phone? does it drain loads out of the battery? and is it just a simple mp3 player? how is the file setup for this phone?
"i want it" I've bought mine on Ebay!! you can have some grate deal if you take your time to buy!!
To Reno, when you said "expect for some headaches in its use." is it hard to use? or what makes you say that? which version would you recommend? thank you
Hi GuessBoy. If u r getting the JP version, expect for some headaches in its use. But overall it would still be very exciting to have.
Finally i've ordered one Sharp 903 for me and i'm waiting to get my hand on it!!
Just one thing i've had the choice between the unlocked version of Jap and Germany factory unlocked by Vodafone. But i wasn't sure which one to take but finally when i ask for the jap unlocked version it was already finished and i've ask for the difference between the Germany unlocked version. They told me that this version is being unlocked by Vodafone company itself without any used of third party software also that it does not have any limit on the version of unlocked firmware as the jap or euro or even the SX....! So my question is does anyone can tell me if they know anything on this version i'm getting on my Sharp 903???
Hi " I want it!!! " I recomend the Sharp 903. which is Euro, but Sharp SX833 is also good. That version is not vodafone branded. Good Luck!! and remember... Red goes faster!!! hehehe
HI, I am not sure which firmware should I get? any suggestion?? thank you!
