(-) there is no light notifications such as for new missed called or new sms, thought it could've been implemented
(-) when using the walkman on top in the extrnal screen:
while listening to a song from an album, i cant go back and search for another song in the same album, i have to go back from the top menu. crap!
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2008Can you see caller id and txt msg id on the outer screen?u cant see the missed calls number no, but when u receive a message the text would apear autamitaclly b4 u open the msge
Those ppl who are using the mobi,can u temme if the external screen:-
1.display's the photo of the person tht is set when a call is recieved from the person?
2.display's the video, if a video ringtone is set?
Also can u tell if a user defined picture is set as wallpaper;are the modes, standard and maximized available like the one's in w850i n the like? or wil it be only like a wallpaper set in Nokia N-series phones?
Pls kindly answer..
Thnks n advance =D
am disapointed that this phone hasnt any light notifications like my w960. for example when u have a new sms or missed calls, the w960 will have a green light blinking. this could have been possible with w980.
This phone sound chip is the most advanced! more than the w960 and the ipod, am hearing sounds in my favorite album i never heard before! wow!
when am playing a song from an album, and decide to listen to another song , i have to search from the top walkman menu, for example, i cant click back and search in the same album.

I know that one has to buy the GPS receiver seperately...but what software should one use, i.e., the name and where can I get (download) it? What is the most reliable GPS software to use?
Thanks a lot.

The phone is very solid nad the materials are excellent, have got mine for 10 days now and not a single scratch. Yes there is a lag in some places in the interface of the phone and the player but I don't find it much annoying. The phone is a real marvel I can't stop wiping it's screen and quite ofter I catch myself looking at it for minutes on end like an imbecile :) I am getting scared that I become obsessed by this damn thing :-D
