hi i am yash from india. my brother bought this phone for me from australia .i was very exicted when i saw it .but when came to know about its very very little memory i.e only 1.8 mb i got very sad and returned back the phone.also there is no option of memory card.and also a poor sound quality, no music player, it is just a simple phone for office people and not for youth.
I bought sharp Gx17 for #17,000 in Nigeria 3 days ago, infact is absolutely fantastic and amazing.
My complain is just that I can't share programs (ringing tones, pictures) with my friends with other different phones like Sagem, Sony Ericsson and so on, through (Infrared). Pls I wouldn't mind if there is anything you can do for me just rectify all these difficulties.
I will also like you to tell me how I can disfigure this Vodafone configuration on it, so to enable me to configure it for another GSM network.
Hi there, I've just bought this phone since 3 weeks now for just 90 €. It's really a wonderfull one. The camera is really great, everything in this mobile ( but the 1.8 MB flash memory that's really not enough !!! ) is really wonderfull. Screen, colors and so on...And you can't beat the 480*640 camera. Now I'm in love wih SHARP Phones. So beautifull, so easy... My previous ones were : SHARP GX-30, Sony Z600, Nokia 6600 ( the Nokia 6600 sux. Crappy camera, soft bugged etc etc ).
this phone is great!!! i got it for 180 aussie dollars and i love it.
sure the camera inst megapixel but its the best vga camera i have seen. if you like value for money than this is the phone for you. it has it faults like lact of memory and u can use real tones but for the price i paid its the best phone on the market!
wow... i'll tell u wat, i only got this fone yesterday & i recon it's the BEST fone i hav eva had. the cam comes out perfect every tym, the screen is big and full of color, great ringtones, games etc. but i hav 2 questions for long tym users. the video recording only goes for 10 seconds!=(..could i change it??????if yes, how??? and also my fones battery duzn't last very long...how can i change the setting to "power save"????
oh this phone is absolutly amazing of what this thing can do the camera is fantastic it comes out very clear.i havent seen a better phone than this one.i like it is nice and thin and black its got perfect features for u if u have a laughing personality.
i just bought this mobile one week ago and i dont understand some things.for example why after touching the keyboard the main light turns off and stay over 1 minute a low light?can i switch off the low light?and does this light stays on during the phone is charging until the phone is off or is only on my phone?thanks everybody,great phone,great bluetooth but not all formats are compatible such as some songs.byee
Had it for 2 month now
Battery life: 3-4 days normal use without switching it off night time.
Screen: real good for specs
Style: i like it more everyday
BT and IRDA working without any problem
Memory only internal and like 1,5 mb free
To me that i spent 27 Euros for it in Spain it was a very good deal....
If you want a simple phone with basic features i dont think there are better deals
Everyone giving this phone a rave is obviously working for Sharp! I moved across from a Nokia phone and have been very disappointed. There is no way to send contact details via SMS (a business card on the Nokia) meaning if someone asks u for a number you have to look it up, write it down then do and text it into a message. Tedious. The reminder feature is overly complicated and cumbersome - u can't just put an alarm for to remind u "parking meter", U have to set up a subject, beinning time, and end time, a reminder time blah blah. And finally the promise of networking and managing the phone's info with your computer is only for PC users. There is no Macintosh verion of the program. The standard ringtones are dreadful, and while u can record yr own sounds, you cannot use them as ringtones. The phone sux
I got a vodafone branded GX17.
good signal catching
it makes photos.. O_o
..but the memory is enought to take only some photos (if you don't have any ringtone or else loaded)
you cannot upload java via cable bt or irda.
max 50k per file
you cannot use amr (real sound) as ringtone
you cant send files via email
poor battery life
..... and that bastard "live!" button, non illuminated, that is too easy to push, creating instantly a connection with vodafone live!.. and istantly dropping money from your account: despicable.
In my final tough: this phone is a nothing else than a toy.
Don't buy it.
Great phone! able to connect with bluetooth dongle, upload pictures and sounds less than 100k. my only gripe, is that the uploading games feature is blocked delibrately in order to make you download games via WAP at a cost.
If anyone knows how to upload games through bluetooth, please let me know! thanks
