Does this phone have a speakerphone option? I cant choose loudspeaker when i make a call?!!
All ya need to do for both this phone and the XP1 is check out the damage it can take on Youtube. No other phone could come close to this. Its the perfect working man/womans phone. It rings and txts and its tough. Price is not an issue for my many customers (work at Voda) - they spend hundreds per year replacing phones regularly. These are the sort of customers who spend a lot on their phone, valued customers, not just using a phone for facebook or or instant messaging, but what they were invented for - calling.
Just bought XP3 for my husband. He is maintenance manger on a farm. Killed 3 SE in the last 18 months (last one dropped in water). It true that is does not have all the fancy features, is built like a brick and weighs a ton, but.... won't have to buy a new phone every 6 months - makes the price not to bad. Can do cool party tricks. But seriously this is a great phone for people who work outdoors and in wet and dirty enviroments.
If you want a phone that will last - this is it.
Of course you can set it to vibrate only:Choose the"meeting"at the quick settings menus-only vibration,no ringing.
BUT if you choose the"silent"mode-something that you can do by keeping pressed the # button on the keyboard,without entering any menu...surprise:the phone becomes dead silent...no ringing,no vibration.
This may seem petty, but can you set it to vibrate and does it have an alarm? I've only seen ringing mentioned on the website and I need my phone to be quiet on several occasions.
got xp1 and xp3 both excellent phones. www.expansys.co.uk/ www.pushtotalk.co.uk good suppliers of these phones. i think yellow high visable the best colour find that in the snow / quad band would be nice to make it a true world phone.and longer longer battery please mr sonim only improvements i would need,and bluetooth 2.0 adp/ and brighter led/ that asking too much pleshette. like these a lot,nokia 6250 and ericsson r310 great things just got better. condurro is it pants or a poor wannabe toughie/ only dual band. sonim more hi vis colours please orange that;ll make them talk about being trendie. glow in the dark luminest hi vis phone that a differt idea eh. motorway workers,lgv drivers in quarries and on the road, ice road trukers,axemen emergncy serivices the list endless mr sonim. nice phone excellent dude.

phonehouse worker, 19 Feb 2009Can you use mp3s for ringtones in this phone?Yeah you can I upload mp3 files to the micro sd card and used them for the ring tones

So far my experience of the LM801 is it seems a tough no nonsense phone. Easy enough to navigate round the menu and has a good battery life. If you are after a tough phone and the feature set fits the bill this is worth a look.
Karl, 05 Jan 2009Regarding the condurro M801 being a similar phone,well I just purchased one,and not all the fe... moreRegarding the condurro phone,I did get my money back,but they were reluctant to honor their unconditional warranty until that is I got my local Citizens Advice Bureau on the case,but the phone is really awful to use and feels very antiquated,the phone reminders are limited to short words only and you only get three,it has really bad ring tones that sound like cheesy porn tunes,they keys aren't very tactile and the navigation key is stiff and hard to use,this could be a good phone,but it seriously needs a rethink and some more development time.
Also to let you know the XP1 will be available Grade A unused from www.futuregizmos.co.uk at £82.99 grab a bargin 10 day leadtime though and limited stock
Can anybody tell me what the PC Sync does. I am interested in how I keep my names and numbers up to date. Have I got to do it all on the phone or can I do it on a PC and transfer to phone ?
I have it for a months now and use it in the field. No change regarding battery. This one in bigger and tougher. The pc-tools can be improved a lot.
I can operate it wearing gloves. The messeging needs improvement and the flashlight is a good addition. If it had a compass or a way to have a gps it would be the ultimate tool. So far, it worth the money.
