i noticed that there were some questions about games that can be downloaded to sharo tm 150. guess what, i had exactly the same problems until i was able to. just go on a website called tagtag.com and click the button for wap sites that will be one of the choices on the top of the site and then click games and try out some of the waps. good luck
i like t-mobile too. i have had very few problems with them, and the instore workers knwo what they are doing. i did finally get the games downloaded from 3gforfree.com. you can also download ringtones and screensavers. i just wish that it was mp3 compatable
I have a tm150. I like the size of the phone. I like the screen size of the phone. The camera is great if you hold it still but if you are moving its hit or miss. the SD card slot is the coolest feature because you can actually use the pictures on your computer instead of emailing the pictures to yourself and then getting em. - I wish I could turn off the shutter sound on the camera but I havent found the hack for that yet and I wish I could change the pink bar thats on the bottom of the display to a different color but.. oh well.
talking on it is fine.
i just got this phone and i love it. i don't know why all you people are complaining about t-mobile, i love them too. i got the phone free when i activated service, so to me this was a great deal and a great phone.
i called sharp and they would not give me any support. they said that it was a tmobile only phone and that if i needed help to call them. some ppl at tmobile are not very helpful. if anyone knows where to get games for this phone, please let me know. i have tried the websites listed and they just dont work.
This phone is great; the only problem it have is a very short battery life especially after taking pictures, video or editing; and it have a low ringer volume even after setting it to the highest ring volume #5. I have not use it for game or for email, so i have no coment on this issues. It takes large and great and sharp pictures.
This phone is horrible! I lost the phone and didn't even bother to go back to look for it. (it was free from T-Mobile) This was my first experince with a Sharp phone and I must say they have a long way to go to even hang with LG or Samsung that I think have the most easy to use and logical menu structure. Here are some of the reasons I hated this phone and you might too:
Cannot set appointment in calendar to alarm as a reminder. (what good is a having a calendar if the phone wont remind you?)
Too many steps to answer call waiting and switch between calls. (doing this on this phone while driving is more dangerous than it should be)
Cannot capture #'s from call log and save under name already in phone book.(you have to memorize or write the # down then go in and add it to phone book)
Cannot change default calling # for phonebook contact. (the first # entered will always be first on the list to call. no good for speed dial.)
No option to dial next number listed for person in phone book (you have to hang up and go back into phone book to select another #)
The volume is too low and too many other shortcomings to list here.
Basically the menu structure on this phone is the worst!! Stay away from sharp if you like a phone that is quick and easy to use without pressing a bunch of buttons. If all you do is just take pictures and text your friends then this is the phone for you.
This phone is great. If you want free ring tones? go to www.google.com type in free midis or go to www.mididb.com and find some there. after u download the ones you like u have to edit them because there so big(long). Then go to www.download.com and type in anvil studio which is a free download(midi editing program). It has NO spy or adware and run it. Then you can edit the length of them or just pick out your favorite part of the tones. I make my ringtone about 30 - 40 sec. Then after your SD card has been formatted by the phone stick the SD card in the computer then copy the edited midis off you comp. and paste them in the sounds folder on the SD card. Then from my sounds in the phone go to options then swith to data card and send the tones to your phone by selecting the midi then options then send or copy to handset. anyquestions on how to do this you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org If anyone knows how to get games on this thing pleeeeease let ME know thanks Rich
I love this phone!!! I got it about a week ago, for free from a T-mobile store.At first i had problems finding games, but after searching many sites, I finally found a site.All you have to do is go to t-zones, go to options and click go to URL, then type in www.3gforfree.com, then you can find ringtones, wallpaper, and games all for free. They games do look bootleg, but at least they are something. Does anyone know what it means when u go to URL and it says "Invalid entry.Please try again." It's really annoying.Please help!! I want to go back dowloading games and ringtones. THe camera is super clear, but u have to have a sturdy hand.Not many people have this phone, that's why i like it. If you are looking to get a phone, definitely get this phone!!! If you don't, u have no idea what ur missing!!!Does anyone know if your memory gets renewed each month or do u have to delete some things?Hope I was helpful.
someone told me that i can record my own sounds and make it as a ringtone. first is that true? if it is can someone help me please i really nees your help i just got this phone and the ringtones programmed in it suck. ia desperate for help
The phone is really great. It takes great pictures great videos but for some dumb reason it doesn't download games. The Sharp company gave it a feature to select if you wanted to play games but it doesn't support it. I hate that I had to pay so much money for the phone that says it plays games but it really doesn't. Oh yeah it doesn;t have speaker phone either. Someone should contact the sharp company and tell them to add the support on the phone and give it to anyone that has the phone for free.
i just got the phone and i really like it, but haven't sorted out how to get the photos to my computer
don't even thin about getting a motorola, any motorola because it's not worth it, too much problem. get the sharp and you will be glad you did. the v300 is going to be discontinued, too much defective units and nothing good about v600, only bluetooth cabable.
I am planning on getting this TM150 and not to sure bout the reviews. Seems like you guys here aren't to happy with it. Please let me know what you think because i am torn between the TM150 and moto v600. I have a friend who bought Motorola V300 and absolutly regrets it. He said that i should not go for Motorola but i am not to sure. Please help!!!!!
I don't like it because i just got the phone and my sister has the same exact phone. I put my old SIM card into this new phone the same thing and when she trys to call me it says "Alert!" Or it'll read "ID witheld" The manual book doesn't say anything about that.
My wife just got a TM150 and likes it very much. She does however have the same complaint I hear in many places. "Where the heck are the games?" Article after article I see says that it has "builtin games' or that it can use Java based (J2ME) games. Where are these games available? T-Mobile doesn't have a clue! Is the data transfer cable needed to load the games once you find them?
After having used this phone for a couple of weeks, I can say that I like it, but don't love it. I agree with the 'where are the games?' statement. It's java enabled meaning we should be able to have them on there, but how?
T-Mobile support said that the phone was incapable of using hi-fi ringtones, but I assured them that I could. I was able to create my own .mmf files using a little program called mobile music polyphonic, (google it) but for them to work, the file needs to be less than 50 KB. Just put the file on your SD card and transfer it to the phone from there (if you can successfully navigate the confusing menu system). Overall, the phone gets a 7. No games and no MP3 capability really hurts it.
