The USB data cable can only be used as a interface cable to make the phone a modem. You can't do anything else with the data cable other than using it as a modem data cable between phone and PC. I've bought it and tried it myself and the user's manual also states that is the only purpose of the cable and if you try to do anything else you may mess something up with the phones software and they will not be responsible.
does anyone knows how can i download the data from my v801sa thru my computer? i have a USB cable for my pfone and already installed the USB HOST driver. but i still cant get the data from my mobile phone. can someone help me please... tnx!
OK K, when powered up without a SIM it shows "Check USIM Card". When you power up with a T-mobile SIM card it says the same thing "Check USIM Card". If I try to do anything with the (T-mobile) SIM card in it, it displays "Aquire Information to use Handset OK?" (the 801 will ask the same question with or without the T-mobile SIM card in it, just like there is no SIM present at all)if "Yes" is pressed "Unable to Establish Network Connection Check USIM Card" is displayed. I can set "FUNCTIONS" and "SCHEDULE" section but not "INFORMATION, MOBILE CAMERA, AND MULTIMEDIA" otherwise you can set the parameter like ringtone, clock, backlight, wallpaper, etc. It's great you can use the calendar and alarm section to it's fullest. If you want me to try it with a USIM card, SD memory card inserted, etc. let me know what else you want to know. I have a working unit of the V801SH with Vodafone service.
Vodafone USIM card when inserted into a regular unlocked phone, it will work fine and be able to take and place call.
Japan has the best technology. European standard is still way behind dude.
ok, all those who have this phone outside can give some details and I will try to explore ways to unlocking them. Tell me what you see when you switch on the phone with and without your own country`s local SIM card. Thanks. =)
default setting won't do anything to unlock the phone, as mentioned earlier these types of Japanese phone are tightly software locked and is very hard to unlock. I've heard of one place in the Phillipines that have unlocked the V801SA, but I am not 100% sure if it is true. Only time will tell...
I just wondering about this phone. Does anybody there tried to reset the Default factory setting of v801sh to unlock it? I wanted to buy this kind of phone too and use it in my country. I guess lot of cellphone experts trying their best to unlock it. I will buy when someone unlock this phone.
what do you mean 801 is "old technology"?? this phone is blow away any phone in the US even after one year from now!
This phone is officially old technology with the introduction of the Sharp 802 and 902, and the 802/902 will be available for the European market as well!!!.
Yes Aj, the phone is a UMTS/GSM 900/1800/1900MHz tri-band phone. Although the phone is (software) Locked to Vodafone and can only be used with a Vodafone roaming network. It will NOT accept any other USIM card other than a Japanese USIM card. I use this phone in Hawaii under T-mobile's 1900Mhz network and it works fine, it's over a $1/minute per phone call, so it's not cheap! Hope this answers your question. The specification part on this site is wrong, it does cover 1900Mhz GSM also.
if u add the price tag in the page , i will make up my mind to get one like this, seriously.
the answer is no and no. there's no software to unlock the v801sh and the guy in brasil, no way to unlock the phone from vodafone, if you know it why do you ask?
Can I use this phone in Brazil ?
Here it´s GSM, but looks like the phone is pratically impossible to unlock from vodafone.
thanks in advance
CGS (Continuous Grain Silicone) and TFT (Thin Film Technology) is manufactured differently but the visual appearance cannot be detected by human eyes. So, there's no differece in visual effect, that's why I said it's the same thing. your eyes cannot tell the difference unless you have extreme sensitive eyes, that is...
