The v801 ain't going to take any sim card other than vodafone or even a japanese prepaid one's so don't even bother trying it. It's locked tight!!!
Hi! I've been reading the threads. Does anyone know of a phone I can use in Japan and the rest of the GSM world? If someone unlocks the V801SH can I just pop in a prepaid sim card in Japan and it will work?
JIM, regarding utilizing the camera and multimedia function without the USIM card installed? Unfortunately it will not work without the USIM card installed. I just tried it and sure enough it doesn't... And I don't think there is an way to unlock this handset..
Do any one know V801SH can use CAMERA and MULTIMEDIA Function without U-Sim CARD? and how to unlock it
I want to ask about V801SH Bluetooth can support for transfer files to another devices (PDA, MOBILE PHONE, PC...) ?!
With a 256MB SD memory card the V801 is capable of recording 428 minutes of video in 176 x 144 resolution (QCIF) in highest quality mode! Picture quality is not bad at all for a cellular phone!
Good news !!! Hong Kong Smartone will introduce V801SH later (in Oct or later)
no, you cannot use this phone outside of japan EXCEPT on the vodafone japan network. the phone is completely locked to vodafone japan, so it will not work with any other provider.
So i will be able to use this phone in vancouver, canada? and how much will this cost?
I do not have an opinion on the V801SH because I did not know the phone exists. I use a sharp GX30 and I want to know if the V801SH is better?
The video recorder function is useful! 11 minutes of recording time with the 16MB SD card that came with the kit. Also, the kit came with a application CD-ROM, I haven't had the time to load it into my PC. Does anyone know how it works? I guess I still have to purchase the interface cable from Vodafone in order to load pictures and data from the phone to PC?
