Nokia N95, WIFI, GPS, 3G(2100Mhz tho :( ), 5 Mega Pixel Camera w/ Carl Zeiss Lens, two Way slider, 3.5mm jack , Price > $1150 Cdn ~ $999.58 USD only.

I haven't had the non-vodafone branded version of the V630i and don't think it is 'crippled' in any way. You can always get more themes if they annoy you that much.

I have got a Japanese unlocked Red 903SH (photos soon) that is amazing. It's still vodafone but it's just so awesome.

Well it is on a contract, and it was a free upgrade of my old Samsung P300 so it actually cost me nothing but, if you want to buy it "Pay as you Go" then it is around £300 - £350 ($600 - $700).

But the phone is very nice, my only criticism is that the Micro SD card is located under the battery, so if you want to change the card over you have to turn the phone off first, I would prefer it to be "On the fly" changeover, but its not a huge concern :P

Oh and when I was getting my phone the sales dude told me that Apple is finding it hard to get a deal going for the iPhone in the UK and so it may only be available Sim Free, I was told it may fetch up to £650, but don't quote me on that :D

xda-developers.com ;)

Its 100% stable, the only thing you're risking is that you can't take it into a local store if you need support (but it looks like its unbranded HTC, so theres no local stores anyways)

You can always flash back to WM5 if you need warranty service.

Heres my TYTN+WM6 :) Its so, so much better. Unlike most microsoft products, it makes the existing device feel much snappier and faster and it looks way better.

Supa_Fly
May 20, 2007, 12:21 AM
But what do you gain going from WM5 to WM6 Professional?
I hear WM5 Smartphone to WM6 Standard give much more of an upgrade. IF you upgrading to WM6 just for the looks, thats not much of an upgrade, is it?

Furthermore - unlocking it for a firmware upgrade seems to void your warranty as you state. Going back to WM5 does the warranty center know whats its been tampared with. and does the Windows app support this up/down-grade directly? I thought that this couldn't be done on WM systems, or is this farely new to upgrade & downgrade without 3rd party apps?

Well I finally stopped saving the planet and got an upgrade after 6 years.

I upgraded from my Nokia 3285 (first image) to the Verizon LG 8300. I was seriously thinking about getting the Moto SLVR L7c only because I like the candybar style. At least I have a 30 day trial period.

Now I am trying to find out how to get my own ringtones on. Is it easier using a usb cable rather than BT? NVM.

I like the phone overall. It's got the new Flash theme UI and it fits in my backpack's phone holder. VGA vs. a 1.3 I don't really care about as thats why I have a reg. digital camera. And weirdly enough for me is that the stripped down Moto L7c was slightly more $$ than the LG.

I get it back after waiting an hour and half and they say we couldn't fix it. Then I had to pay $50 bucks for them telling me it was broken.

That would be the Motorola V710. Chances are your lock code is the last four digits of your phone number. Or 000000 (six zeros)

I have 2 friends that own that phone on Verizon.
I love the concept of the phone, but find the keyboard to be "meticulous". Like I still have to pay great attention to the keys I press.
Other than that, it's a really great phone and very innovative. Really freaks people out too.

So I recently got my upgrade and as I'm a heavy user, I had my choice of any handset. I despise those big ugly Nokia's and those 'smart' phones. If I need a camera, I'll use my Nikon. Saying that, this does have a 3.2 MP camera - not too bad.

Put simply, I think this is the most sexy phone on the market today, and unlike the Prada doesn't feel ridiculously cheap in my hand.

i got this last month, to replace my aging w600i. I like it a lot so far.

I miss my SK2. :( It was getting too old and I didn't have an actual plan. The keyboard is the best I've ever used on a phone.

Nice phone, but that Orange branding-icons on the Home Screen really kills it!
What is the video recording resolution, and formate (.3GP=H.263/H.264)?

Thanks.

I disagree actually. I think the Orange software and branding is the nicest and most subtle of all network providers here in the UK. But to each his own I guess. If I wanted, I could have the phone restored to Samsung factory defaults.

The max video res is 352 x 288 and it supports MPEG and H.263 possibly more.

Branding - each to his own agreed. I also agree its the most SUBTLE Orange branding I've seen; but on PPC-PE phones especially those launched last year it was too brazen.

Video recording sounds VERY nice; mpeg4 most likely.

It truely is beautiful. . . . the good thing about O2 is that I have NO BRANDING what-so-ever :D The box it comes in is purely Samsung based just as if purchased Sim Free.

Lovely phone.

Disco Dave Your U600 is different from mine.

Mine just has "i" as the center key instead of "OK/i". Pretty wierd stuff

Here'e mine complete with menu.

i have a nokia 6300, and for me this is the 'ideal' phone that i've been wanting for the last couple of years.

Radio, Mp3 playback, with easy to use menus and a nice editable GUI, no cheap plastic but good stainless steel body (iphone? ipod?).

and the two MOST important factors:
Size: one of the thinnest phones from nokia, measuring at 12mm at the keypad
Screen: 16.7 million colours 240x320 TFT screen, the pixels are so tightly packes that i can not tell them apart with naked eye. :D


and last but not least, very very affordable .. and extremely sophisticated.

Some of the newer Sony Ericssons are also very nice. I can vouch for their build quality also. My last Sony Ericsson lasted me two and half years before I upgraded to my latest handset. It still works perfectly and lasts for days on a single charge after 2.5 years of heavy use.

I have the LG Chocolate and I'm with you.

I cannot stand the thing. Mind you, I keep good care of everything that I own, but somehow, the phone's touch sensors are completely out of whack, i.e. text messages that I've typed are erased without me touching anything, menus won't load even when I press OK, and when I finally get to a menu and press the down arrow, it goes into a maniacal scroll that does NOT stop. (Yes, I've changed the sensitivity levels.)

I'm patiently waiting to purchase a better phone by August. Until then, I absolutely loath the chocolate.

The damn thing's constantly restarting it's self and freezing up in my pocket, I'm on my second one and this one's less than a month old. Verizon will only keep replacing it with the same crap, not letting me get a free upgrade to something decent (and I paid $100 EXTRA for this phone), but my contract's almost up so I'm not going to buy a new one.

Today for example it's sitting on a table and I get a text message so I go to pick it up, the second I get it in my hand the screen goes blank for a few second then comes back up frozen.

The touchpads are flaky, despite fiddling endlessly with sensitivity adjustments, the battery is "meh", and the call quality is awful. I can hear incoming callers just fine but they can never hear me. They can hear *everything* going on around me, but not my voice. So frustrating. Unfortunately, I used my Verizon "new every two" on this piece of crap. Unless I want to shell out full price for a different phone, I'm stuck with this one for another 18 months. :(

Heres my Blackberry 7250. Had it for a while now. Good and reliable phone. I just like Google Maps because i tend to need directions alot.

Google Maps over HTTP on a BB = ROYAL pain.

Its time to upgrade to the 8830 for Verizon/Sprint man.

Built-in GPS chip (sensitivity akin to STARSIFIII);
BB Maps built in.
Options:
* Google DEDICATED APP > if you upgrade I'll email the app to you .. it'll update maps on the fly via the data connection. (turn by Turn navigation)
* TeleNav better than Google Maps (either on iPhone or anywhere else with TURN by TURN visual & vocal navigation).
* Create favorites or MAP from Address Book location (this can be done on the Pearl as well).
* InfoSpace FINDIT! > great app for location based services.

Faster navigation, powering off is so passe when you have powersaving.

^ YOU TOO! Time to upgrade from S60 2nd edition to 3rd edition FP1. Great phone that was the 6600 but the 6620 was much better for memory, themes and class 4 edge rather than just gprs.

Just a heads up, the Sprint version can only do that. Verizon disabled the GPS chip in it and has not announced any plans to port VZ Navigator to it.

<rant>whelp... my iphone got it's first scratch today :mad: :( :eek:

and guess what its from!?!? THE CASE

A) DONT BUY THE "SLEEK" CASE FOR IPHONE
B) I HONESTLY DONT THINK IT REALLY NEEDS A CASE
C) IF YOU DO GET A CASE INVEST IN AN EXPENSIVE ONE- AND WITH THE PC WORLD STRESS TESTS... do yourself a favor, dont waste money on a screen protector</rant>

'Funny you mention it. I bought the same Belkin Acrylic "Sleek" case you refer to and it was great at first but within a day or so of use it became loose and the iPhone started moving around in the case. :eek: I was more worried of it getting scratched in the case than in normal use so I decided to just remove the case all together. Ya know, I should have known better considering I bought an Agent 18 case for my iPod Nano (very similar case to the Belkin) and the same thing happened.

But yeah, for those potential iPhone buyers I would also say it doesn't really need a case but if you are set on getting one, I would say go for the Incase one.

Also, the screen is fine. A screen protector IMO is a waste of money.

Finally, I'm much happier now using it w/o the case considering it is MUCH sleeker and thinner - just as it was intended to be used. Further more, there really isn't much area on it that can scratch. Screen? No. Back? Maybe, not nearly as much as the iPod backs, though. The only part I can see that might scratch is the silver bezel.

Sorry for the long post!

Are you with T-Mobile? I'm not sure if the RIZR can be purchased with other providers. You can buy it unlocked but I think it can only be used with GSM.

I really like the phone though and the camera and flash are pretty good for a phone! The video feature is really nice too, coming from a RAZR. You can take "large" (352x288) video on best quality for as long as you have the memory for (over 20 minutes with the included microSD card). My RAZR stopped after 15 seconds. :D

Nice looking phone, but its STILL just a phone. Its hackable - but doing so doesn't make it stable; less so actually. The reason why its so hackable is because its so limited for basic functions. btw, its NOT an OS, its a platform. Motorola's JUIX is an OS, you're KRZR ( Razr/RIZR incl.) is a platform.

Here's an example of Motorola limitations. of you're platform.

^ See?! Their other platform, Synergy is a little less limiting. Curious, how many java apps can you run at a time, stably?! ;) Personally with my K790 & 71mb free RAM, I can run at Least 4 plus the Audio Player similtaneously :D

@ psycoswimmer,

If you really wanted a slider with music playback & background playability why not wait, within 30days, for the SE W580 (Grey, white or black)? It ships with 1GB M2 card :D

Oh well everyone has their own preference, which is fine. I'm just pointing out other options.

PIC #1 = SE S500 Mysterious Green - same platform as the W580 (sans dedicated walkman button & featured Walkman audio interface GUI). Its got a VERY Cool Flash theme & Side lights, very cool. Google it.

PIC#2/3/4 - W580 in Black, the #4 pic is the Walkman GUI I mentioned, although its a pic of the W880 slim 3G phone for Europe, this W580 is quite the same in this regard.

Later summer I'm upgrading to the W580 - I love the walkman interface. THen I'm going to get the Wireless A2DP headphones DS980 along with the Music Watch. WHen I get my beater car i'll connect my phone to the stereo, or at home to the stereo there. I can STILL goto the fridge get something to drink, prepare Dinner, and use the watch to start playing music! :apple: , Then an incoming call happens I can reject or answer it - without music interruption UNTIL I accept the call. It'll also notify me of an incoming text & whom its from (if in my phonebook / or just the cell # if not). James Bond neva had it so good.

Cheers everyone.

SE's new BT enabled watch - collaborated with Fossil.

In Music & Classic guise. Also attached is the BT A2DP Headset, and just 1 or 4 Speaker system for the SE Walkman phone line. However, I can still use my K790 along with it.

Lastly a phone I'm considering upgrading to in December if the W580 ends up being too expensive after its first 2 mths of debut. Yeah man, 5MP with Auto Focus, BEST Shot, QVGA video recording (FINALLY SE :eek: ), and video blogging to blogger. D-Pad is a bit avante gaurde though.

Yeah, I was using the term OS rather liberally. By OS I meant whatever bundle of functional device. I know JUIX is coming soon, and I should have waited for that. But last weekend I left my phone at another city, I needed a decent phone, and the K1 is the only one that appealed to me. There's the K790a too, but I'm getting bored with that particular style of SE. I've used the T39m, T616, K750i, W810i, and played with the P9 series. So I know all the ins/outs of SE. Gotta love the Ooooh and Aaah when pairing it with Salling Clicker for presentations or movie nights with my laptop.

I can't believe they're not releasing the V9 with JUIX. I mean, the non-3G device (V8) is getting it, why not their flagship??
Oh, and I always have, and always will be an SE fan. heheh. I hated Motorola for the longest time because of their limitations, like you said, and lack of 'control' given to the user. But this JUIX thing looks interesting, so I'm gonna give them another try. As for the KRZR, well that's just me finally succumbing to their damn shiny lickable designs. ;)

Really the only decent SE phone they have is the W810...

http://www.mobileburn.com/media/sonyericsson/w810/w810-img_4302.jpg

... which will still cost me 100 bucks even with a contract, and really isn't much of a step up from my W550i. It's such a tiny upgrade, in fact, that I've been considering getting a new SE phone here, and then just using it in Canada. Then again, that would cost me a few extra hundred dollars. :(

LOL ! Their shiny lickable designs ;) - indeed. The K1m does look nice I'll give it that. As to why no JUIX on the premeir Razr 2 I have NO clue but it doesn't surprise me. Motorola is ALL over the place with platform & OS on multiple products, and they wonder why the hottest selling phone design for almost 2 yrs made NO money the past qtr??

JUIX, MS OS, UIQ3.1 - very interesting implementation indeed, etc.

JUIX is a LONG TIME in the making, nothing new at all really. if you look at the seriously OLD - say 6yrs ago - Motorola Accompli A009 (I think) you'll see its origins in OS design there & layout. The A780 as well was JUIX - just Linux & Java. It has potential and I'm surprise all this analyst talk of Linux becoming the #1 OS on a smartphone in 2yrs - NON of them looked at Motorola's JUIX. hmm.

K790a is a love hate sort of design which I know will get old on me, personally in 3mths.

Question for Canadians:

What SE phones is Rogers coming out with soon? I'm moving to Canada around end of August and I need to sign up for a plan there, get a new phone...

Really the only decent SE phone they have is the W810...

K790a is MORE than decent there my friend, read up on specs and challenge the phone for a few minutes, you'll see.

To answer your question ... the W580 is coming supposedly in 3mths or less, most likely in 1.5mths. The W610 may also show up as well - direct replacement for the W810. If you cannot wait go for the W810 you will NOT be dissapointed. Just unbrand it = MP3 ringtones at your leisure, and flash themes.;)

If you want style, slim & a 3.2MP cam with AutoFocus, then wait 30more days and pony up for a T650i.

NOTE: You're in Canada and any strong structural - metal frame - building will reduce cell signals substantially if you DON"T have 850mhz band reception on the phone you're choosing. Keep this in mind, because it will affect you one day. We use BOTH 850/1900mhz across the nation for BOTH Rogers & Fido.

I just purchased the SE S500i and I LOVE IT. Great upgrade from my POS 3 yr old MOTO V555, a tank but really useless except for calling. I love the themes from SE in the phone, especially the everchanging, it really adds to the user experience and looks so nice in person especially at night. The phone is a little creaky though and I've been reading that the keypad is weak and cracks though, I hope and pray that mine does not! or at least that I will be able to replace it somehow if it does b/c doesn't look like its covered under the warranty :(. Actually I am looking to replace my keys back in the states b/c I'm picky and would like a traditional western keypad w/o the extra characters, so no big deal for me, except maybe 50 dollars.

EdesignUK & Coops > bastards getting me to think about a Black W880i.

how do you both find the reception in sublevel garages or multilevel parking lots, or in elevators with mirrors surrounding all walls.

uhhhm, i have better signal in underground passages etc than any of my friends at the time, and i receive signal in places that my previous phone, a nokia 6111, wouldn't dream of getting signal.

and go for silver, it's much better looking compared to the oranged backed black model, it looks rather vulgar!

WillJS is on Verizon; as the photo with the flip open shows their SWOOSH.

Always hated Motorola, but I've been proven wrong before. Their OS is not the prettiest, but it's definitely stable and very very hackable. Loving the ability to customize this phone to the max. :)

OK so you're phone above is Synergy, but I'm learning a bit more about the JUIX platform.

This Moto has got my interest since its more value for the money than the SE W580i currently. Considering the Moto Duo Z6; only considering. As for now I trying to secure payment for an imported Orange BB 8820 (WiFi & UMA support)

Motorola S9 (model comes in various colors all Black, Lime Green & Black bundled with Europe release of the UIQ3.1 Smarphone Z8, or Orange & BLack with the orange Z6 Duo above).

A2DP Stereo Bluetooth (same charger as the Razr's mini USB port which is convenient).
Audio/Video remote control support as well so using with your Mac's BT while playing QuickTime should also work.

I'm may just pass on the Z6 duo ... unless the wife makes me buy it.

Just sent to me by O2 as an upgrade option, not sure if im keeping it though. I still prefer the ease of navigation on my Palm and not needing to use a stylus but this is packed with features. Only thing missing is GPS/HSDPA.

Still deciding on this or the iPhone. Strangely this matches the new iMacs well.

VERY COOL! I understand that no HSDPA can be a pain, UMTS is there so it shouldn't be too significant unless you were planning for tethering. I say wait for K850i. Or better yet wait for W960i for touchscreen with fingers like iPhone.

whatever suits your needs.

Hmm those look like amazing phones but the seem more multimedia centric and offer no room for 3rd party software like the P1 does. If im gonna go with multimedia then i might as well go with the best experience which is from the iPhone.

So the question then becomes busienss centric with some multimedia or multimedia centric with some business. Obviously the p1 offers more flexibility and fills the gaps in the iPhone (3G, MMS, Copy and Paste, more camera options etc) BUT the user experience of the iphone...so tempting.

Might just stick with the p1 for then next 11 months and get iPhone 2.

Decisions decisions...

The SE W960 is based on the same OS as the SE p1i.
Just uses:
* numerical keypad, not qwerty.
* 8GB HDD
* 160MB RAM - for running apps
* WiFi 802.11b just like the P1
* Finger touch-screen like the iPhone / STylus navigation/input.

Best of both worlds.

IIRC, W960 will have 128 MB RAM , not 160Mb. Same as P1i.

Then you've been duped! Or you just simply use a phone for just being a phone and retrieving limited weather information.

Lacking apps
Games
synchronization
etc
* Unfortunately its just not enough ... incredible design the iPHone and sparked a HUGE revolution but just not enough.

@ntrsfrml;

I like the P1 but for what it does I'd rather the W960 even wtih 128MB of ram & 8GB HDD. Still no US 3G or EDGE ARRG!

More clearer & non reverse photos of the Touch please :D

Also how is dialing a phone number or rapid text?
Can you film a short 3 sentence paragraph of touchscreen typing stylus or not please?

What is the max video resolution & frame rate on the Touch?

Returned the P1, i kinda miss it but it just wasn't meant to be. Number one gripe was the keypad. not the easiest thing to use or even get used to. Great phone but that keypad.

Yes the iPhone is a great design, but you're fooling yourself, or being fooled if you think it's the best phone out there. It's sold as a smartphone, Jobs touted it as a competitor to the Treo, SE P900i (and therefore the P1i) and the Blackberry etc., but it's hardly got any of the features that are available to those phones.

The iPhone is a very good media phone if you use iTunes, and it syncs nicely via iTunes too. But as a true, productive smartphone it's quite lacking.

Best phone for you? Maybe. Best phone for me? No way. Best phone? Is there such a thing? Probably not.

Why does your iPhone not have AT&T in the menu bar? And how do have one in Switzerland?

Supa_Fly
Aug 14, 2007, 11:34 PM
I'll start off with BlackBerry!

1> Infrastructure!
* complete security from server to end device. Triple DES & AES encryption - Powerful enough that the FEDERAL government of the United States, Canada, shortly the Chinese government.
- what does this mean? I don't have to WAIT until someone that stole my phone to plug it into their MAC for it to be disabled. If my BB is on a corporate network I send an email or phone call to my IT department stating its lost/stolen and within less than 5 mins a KILL & Disable switch is sent to my BB unit! ALL data is wiped - cleared db's and even logs like phone logs (not some stupid pw keeper app that can just be hard reset). IF its turned off, even if my SIM card is changed and the provider doesn't know wait until it gets data again and BAM wiped!

* Can you use your iPhone for VoIP on not only your HOME WiFi network but also the corporate network? Does it support VoIP?! a 2 yr old BB unit 7720 does - although its not a cellphone. Europe on Orange network 8820 IS a cellphone & has WiFi .... TMobile USA will have the 8320 Curve with WiFi (802.11a/b/g on 2.4-5Ghz bands) and also support presence?

* 3rd Party Apps.
anything from YahooGo! to Gmail/Yahoo/AOL email synchronization to Corporate VPN connections like Avaya, Cisco to incredible MF Emulation applications (IBM based for TSOC/CISC/IMS/ etc). And growing exponentially.

* Its the ONLY & YES ONLY Smartphone that is FULLY supported under warranty by provider OR directly from Manufacturer (RIM) for upgrading firmwares to downgrading firmwares for the particular unit.
- what does this mean? Well with RIM developers quickly fixing bugs without introducing new ones .... and features ... that mean I can have the themes that O2/Vodafone/Oranage(latter is horrible IMHO); while my hardware was sourced from a Rogers Wireless store - EVEN if my unit is STILL SIM card locked. Also I get the features that those Themes allow ... seperate MMS, SMS, Email application folders (icons if you will).

* Phone.
- I think the iPhone is a SMART-ER Phone, not a smartphone just yet. It needs a lot of time at present closed/open development support from Apple and a LOT of hungry and creative developers. Can you iPhone seperate phone log data?
I call my wife at 8am yesterday.
She calls me at 9am/12pm/3:37pm & finally 8:30PM today.
- Each of these calls are either grouped under her name (threaded) and if I want I can display the details of the times listed above and the length of EACH call where they're from (initiated by my wife or myself) & if I make a conference call to the kids at say the 3:37PM call it'll show that other # as a bonded listing and its call length. ie ... if I talked to my wife for a total of 40 minutes from 3:37PM yet conferenced the kids in at 3:52pm till 4:01PM - it'll show the total talk time with my wife & I and the seperate call time wtih the kids - but a PART OF the original call made from my wife to me.

* STABLE!
- Bar none the most stable smartphone OS in the world
- if corporations & government are expected to have their IT & Sales force and accounting departments & information department to RELY on the BB devices & infrastructure ... you can be assured that it'll stand up to most anything you through at it.
* that said its not crash proof through & through but its the best you can find. If you can remember how MAC OS allowed you to load the librarys for core apps upon boot ignoring 3rd party apps to be able to run ... then you know its a godsend on a smartphone.

Lastly, I don't have to wait more than 6mths for a newer features or device to be released from RIM ... but I have to see which provider gets it first. But at LEAST their improving their offerings not just selling 2 models with barely any differences and waiting for the market sales to fill their empty pockets on research & development BEFORE Apple will develop & release another. Too Slow Apple this isn't the computer market.

Symbian OS

S60 & UIQ3
Various 3rd party apps and with new Symbian 9.1 core at BOTH S60 & UIQ3 security has improved.
Nokia is really pushing the envelope on faster running OS and apps with faster & efficient cpu's and now with Nvidia mobile graphics chips.

Incredible developments. Here with S60 I can install a P2P app and share my library of apps or information or music that I sourced/created/composed to others & get feeback. VoIP is here on corporate or private or personal networks with all kinds of encryption methods just like the BB units on WiFi. PBX VoIP support as well.

So again what can your iPHONE do thats so special except look nice being naked? The camera doesn't even have a Flash for crying out loud.

Whew! After all those phones.. hopefuly I can stick with one. I orginally returned the iPhone because I couldn't text VZW people (my friends) because they couldn't afford the unlimtd texting to other carriers. So I got the enV.. which vibrated so loud, it defeated its own purpose. Took that back for the VX8700.. good phone. Still have it on VZW. I couldn't live without iPhone though, so I'm using it on AT&T as a Web broswer, iPod, Phone. :) Only mod/hack done is changed "AT&T" to "iPhone" and added a ringtone.

Anyways, HTC Touch is a great little WM6 device, I was using this iPhone keypad to skin the stock small virtual keyboard. Yes, you can type long paragraphs without using the stylus :)

Touch has a standard 2MP "smart phone quality" camera, Video frame rate is around 15fps and size 640x480(i think??). I have attached some sample pics for your viewing.

Because I can, and I like to text. ;)

I almost did the exact same thing, was it worth it? I am just too drawn to the keyboard.

I used the outside keyboard on the enV more than I did the full qwerty one, it's just to cumbersome to open every time you get a text. I actually prefer the t9 keypad on the VX8700 anyways, it has big, smooth keys that are really easy to text on. :)

People who purchase the EnV aren't the same buyers Verizon and LG intended the 8700 for. If you traded the EnV for the 8700, obviously the keyboard wasn't that important to you- in which case the EnV is simply unnecessarily bulky.
