Got mine from DSE too.. but wish I hadn't. Don't use Blackberry and it seems like a pain to setup. WAP's a bit hit and miss (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't). Had no trouble with USB. Only thing is you might have to restart your computer to get it to recognise the phone if it doesn't work.
Is there a way to go from the Pro (Blackberry) version to the Non-Pro version? Would prefer more than 8mb of memory.
I'm really looking forward to buying this phone because it looks good and the features also appeal a lot.
Yes I've installed all the software and drivers. Once they are installed, my computer does not detect the phone anymore.
Do not press 2 keys at the same time during SMS. Typed slowly and carefully and you would enjoy it! This would freeze the screen. Removed the battery and put it back, the phone would work fine.
have your first installed the software drivers into your computer before pluging in the USB cable to the phone?
ok, ive spent the past hour or so fiddling around with the usb cable. it doesnt even detect the phone, bah i give up
Thanks for that. I got the phone today for $129 at Dick Smith Electronics. I've charged it up but I can't get the thing connected to my comp to transfer files. I've connected it by usb and insalled the software it came with, but the computer doesn't detect it. Is there a special mode I have to go in from the phone? The manual doesn't say anything about the usb.
Oh, and you can still get it new & sealed with the prepaid deal for not much more on eBay Australia...
Strathfield or Dick Smith/Tandy would be your best bet. Get the sales assistant to look up which store/s still have it (if any).
Does Optus still sell this phone in Australia for $129? I've checked every and I can't find this deal. Maybe I missed out.
Holy Glitch Batman!
The SK65 has a minor glitch with its screen display routine, it is prone to freezing and flickering. To snap it out, you have to switch off the phone by pulling out the battery, be careful as this can damage the braces holding the battery.
See notes here on the glitch
Please report the feedback to make this phone work even better.
This phone is great! I got one for my birthday from my parents, and it looks so cool..smaller than i thought after people saying how brick-like it is. some kids came up and were so amazedby the flipping keyboard (whcih is really useful btw), and the screens pretty big too. the fact it doesnt have camera doesnt bother me, and for me the battery life is pretty good, ive had it oin for 3 days and its still pretty high! but sometimes (not very often) the phone randomly freezes and i hav figured the only way to fix it is to remove the battery...has anyone else had the same problem?
Perfect phone. Can anybody tell me if there is any option to instal mp3 codec for SK65?
Yeah I read in Siemens forums & I have one sollution : sale my SK6R & buy another one SK65 .
I've bought one yesterday. Can somebody help me...is it possible to read or write microsoft excel or microsoft word in this phone ? Thx
The Optus version (it's not locked to any network, despite what the sales people will tell you) is the SK6R Prosumer version; it comes with BlackBerry built in. You can't uninstall this application, so the quoted 32MB user storage is set at 8MB and you can't change it. Despite that, this is a great phone :)
