I have been using this phone for about 3 months and its very good. Answering to KENCO. Yes even I have the same problem, videos don't play through my GPS (Must be a problem with kind of processor we have in this phone) however i don't have any problem playing videos through wifi.
I can't get youtube videos to play. It keeps saying there's a problem while playing the video. It's driving me mad. Does anyone, with a Vodafone 845, know how to fix this? (what settings, do i need to download flash player from an apps market etc.)
i have it,its a good phone although the market applications are boring! i wish there were more applications...
This morning my VF845's alarm woke me up and the phone was working as if nothing was ever wrong - screen is back in business.
I made a call successfully this morning on my VF845 but as soon as I ended the call, the screen went blank.
I can still receive calls and messages but of course I can't see the messages and can't make calls.
I have tried taking out both the battery and sim card, but neither helps.
Any suggestions? Please help!
Before today, happy in every respect with the phone.

Nici, 24 Mar 2011Can you still buy this fone in south africa??? ireally want one!!!!!u can buy it at da jet mart in Pretoria cbd or clicks for R650. thats where i g0t mine
Had this phone for just over 6 months now, was cheap and great intro to the Android (smart phone) world.
All the apps you can install is awesome, but personally if you want a phone to just talk and text, get a standard phone with a key pad.
Phone lags badly now and then, reboots it's self sometimes and most anoying is the volume is way to low when at full, can hardly hear it when it's in my pocket.
EnEx, 25 Apr 2011Can this phone update to android 2.2 or 2.3????? ThnxRoot and install Fresh Zodiac Fruit ROM 5.1 :)
Regarding 2.2, I think there are also some custom ROMS with this version, but not being based on an original ROM, they usually have some bugs or lack some features. I would leave 2.3 out of scope since it hasn't got important features comparing to 2.2...
=), 01 Dec 2010love this phone xcept didnt have bloody vf live yet at time of purchase it said it have vf liv... moreThere is a way around getting Vodafone Live on your 845. Go to this link: http://www.vodafone.co.nz/help/configure-your-mobile/
It will show you how to set up WAP on the 845 for Vodafone NZ customers only.
Bear in mind that once you set it up, you still have to switch between browser VF Gateway and VF Live i.e. WAP. Unfortunately the 845 will not support Sky TV.
The set up also has MMS Settings too.
