Ok, these aren't my phones, but I do have to go through 40+ of them and convert the MEID to an ESN and then get lock codes for each of them.

Do you work for a mobile phone company?

Do you work for a mobile phone company?

I work for dealer for Thunder Bay Telephone. It is one of the only independent phone services in Canada, maybe even North America. So a few times a week I have to get lock codes for dozens of phones that come in. And if a phone gets repaired and has a new ESN, I have to hunt down the lock code for it, which usually isn't so fun.

Sweet ... I've been troubleshooting BES for the past 1.3yrs without my own 8100 - more on that later. BIS was fast for Pop3 emails but I'm hearing its now becoming instant. Great news.
It seems that Google and Yahoo have some special tie-in to BIS that allows for instant delivery. It's amazing.

You got to rub it in, don't you ;) . Prior to 4mths ago it was $100/mth = 1GB and it was "soft capped". Rogers version of "unlimited data" if you went over you wouldn't get a call, nor even an sms to inform you, you'd just be billed incredible overages ($3/MB). Now its $65/mth = 1GB, and it throttles upwards in increments, $75/mth = 2GB, etc if you go above your oringinal 1GB. Its getting better, but way WAY too slow. February 8TH regular cellphones will allow on the phone itself (no BT/USB tethering) of True unlimited surfing - using the phones browser for $7/mth! But I highly doubt Blackberry's will be included. I pray but I don't think our Wireless Deity is listening ;)
Maybe... Haha. Although that is insane for the prices of it. Thankfully the "unlimited" plan doesn't have overage charges, but if you have the 10MB plan or pay as you go, it's $15.36/MB. Damn...

DUDE! You've just made my month! I'm GLAD to see that OS 4.2 allows for this! You are correct that the 8100 didn't allow this, hence why I used it for only 3-4mths and sold it.

I already got rid of my unlocked AT&T Motorola Q9h .... back to my SE K790a. I'm considering the K850i for night on the town usuage ... but with OS 4.5 coming for BB's with HTML (limited of course) Email support .... the 8120/8320 just might get my hard earned cash!
Remember, the 8130 is OS 4.3. I can't wait until 4.5 is released. Hopefully it will be available to upgrade on previous handsets. If it doesn't I'll be mad. The Verizon OS is a little buggy, so I'm hoping that they'll either release a 4.3 update or go straight to 4.5. Wish that GPS wasn't disabled as well. But I still love it. :D

Dude you don't have to wait for VERIZON! .... check your full firmware in the about screen. Then pay Blackberryforums.com a visit ... check for the latest firmware threads in the 8100 Forums, specific to your 8130 and I'm sure there you'll find the updated firmware with less issues - RIM is incredible for quick releases and bug fixes! Download it first. Do a BACKUP of your data ... maybe even a FULL backup! Also there is an IMPORTANT Sticky regarding how to update firmware (removal of 2 files on your desktop - .alx files - & how to edit so that certain provider themes can be enabled). Lastly, after the firmware update take 20 minutes to quick open standard apps, switch core themes then back again. HRT, and also resend those service books from Verizon BIS site, just in case, THEN do your restore of your core data (calendar, memo pad, address book, tasks, 3rd party apps - their databases, Bookmarks, other settings etc.

Hope this helps ... I'll see if I can find the specific threads.

Man such a good phone (horrible Tmobile shell though). Quality 2MP AF camera (not ppl that this was the very FIRST cellphone to feature AF = K750i/W800i/D750i.). What software are you using to put your firmware on your D750i? XS++ ? Also is your phone unlocked?

This thread should help you along the way.

Hmm. I cannot even begin to know where to start, but that log file is very helpful.

2 Major suggestions:

1> USB Drivers ... although you may already have ones that came with the SE PC Suite, those are not adequate for this 3rd party software (XS++) to fully work. Nice thing is its free.

2> You have the firmware (the 2 parts of it) but you also NEED the Customization file specific to your firmware. Without it nothing gonna work. you'll need to track it down BIGTYME!

Esato.com (forums) or NSE forums - both are the best information source for most things SonyEricsson; however both sites get their firmware, customization files and software from another site that I cannot recall and their membership at this third site is a pain. You gotta make 10 posts in order to be able to download what you need/want (finding it is a cince though). So check out NSE & Esato first.

ie .... 3 components you'll need >
K810_R8BA024_FS_CENT_EUROPE_RED52
K810_R8BA024_MAIN_GENERIC_SM_RED52
to flash my k800 to k810 ... and the cda file used was : K810i_CDA102568_11_R8A_GENERIC_EUROPE_2_without_pw

I knew about that, but I have to download the files some other time because I can't really download a 100MB file over dial-up. Wish you could download files to the BlackBerry and then transfer them to your PC. That would be GREAT.

Thanks to you all who have tryed to help me with my flashing problems.

I have tryed PhoneXS and XS++ with no joy.

I have USB drivers but no way to install them. I also installed some .exe I found that is meant to be W800i USB drivers but it has made no difference.

I am using Windows Vista in Parallels BTW...

Also, Prom1, I now have a lot of conflicting information, as I have never heard on a customization file, and all the tutorials say you need just the main firmware file and the file system file.

EDIT: Im looking t that link now, thanks, Prom1.

EDIT: Right, I found out you dont need the FS file, just the firmware, look at the thread I posted and see if you can help my new problem, I think I may be using rhe wrong firmware or something, not sure. I posted up a log file BTW.

I used to say that I have never gone wrong buying anything from Samsung... this was my first. All that thanks to Microsoft Windows Mobile v5 that makes this phone a mess to use. :(

Here I am quoting my own post after putting that Samsung for auction on Ebay. Better luck for the next owner.

Back to something more basic with this 35 Sony Ericsson K510. bluetooth, calendar sync with outlook, makes calls and the menus don't get in the way. what was I thinking when I got that stu...smartphone? :mad:

Why not use your BB as a modem; it is possible and you'd get around 180Kbps download and around 80Kbps upload (consistently anyway). Unsure if your current data plan will allow you to use your BB as tethering with no extra cost. You can use BT or USB if you like. I don't have the intructions here that'll work on a Mac but I'll see what I can find.

I'll try to see what I find ... looking at your link you posted to that thread again. Again I'm no expert but something I am aware of.

SE releases firmwares, customization files etc to suit different markets & also for unbranded phones for differing week release dates.

ie ... My Rogers Branded K790a (a different phone I know, bear with me) was a locked phone. Its still network locked to Rogers but its now unbranded :D

This is what my phone was at time of purchase.

You know I have always had good luck with Motorola phones. I had a RAZR V3c for 2 years without any problems. I like the KRZR a bit more so far. The phone is quite a bit faster and more compact. The screen is a little smaller but brighter and clearer. Alltel runs the Motorola software on their Moto phones so they work pretty well. I have heard bad things about Verizon phones however.

The new Alltel application program I have is called Celltop and it seems to work pretty well. Pretty decent for free http://www.mycelltop.com/#home

This summer when it is time to upgrade my parents cheap little phone I might just give them the KRZR and then get a RAZR2 for myself. You can't get an iPhone in South Dakota.

Motorola phones are not good. I am glad you like yours, but the UI is terrible, the screens are so low spec and everyone has one.

To be honest, I haven't used the software that came with the phone, or taken out the usb cable. The only thing I've done is send images to use for wallpapers via bluetooth, and that works perfectly.

Yeah I hate rogers too, but they screwed up our account so badly I got the phone for pretty cheap.

Oh, okay. I didn't see it on the Apple sit (http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/isync/)e though.

I'm also considering a w850i, but I think it needs a plugin to sync correctly.

Oops, I meant w580.

Does anyone use the plugins from Feisar? How well do they work?

I debated between these two also, and in the end picked the shine because it was more solid... the plastic on the w580i just seemed cheap and most likely wouldn't last as long as the stainless on the shine. I love the Shine!

I felt the same way, but I ordered the w580i. It seemed like it had more features, and I couldn't find any way for the LG to sync with my computer. Also, it was cheaper.

I can tell you RIGHT NOW that your Shine's "tin" metal is not superior to the plastic in the W580i (slider on AT&T & Rogers Wireless with the Accelerometer; the W850i is a Euro 3G device with "dot-buttons" for the D-Pad). My wife Also has the Rogers TU720 Shine ... and she kept it in a jacket pocket (no change, no paperclips, just feather dust no zippers on the pocket) and in 3-days already visible scratches on the back shell. GET A CASE and PRONTO if you BOTH wanna keep your LG Shines (Slider or Flip) perty!

W580i is a GREAT phone for those that wish to have a Pedometer for jogging. Its replacement is already announced and coming 2QTR of 2008. THe W760i.

Features above the w580i:
- SE's A200 Platform offering...
*Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE
*Triband 3G HSDPA 850/1900/2100Mhz (not TMobile's 2100Mhz just Europe)
* PSP like media menu Uber cool & functional.
* Acelerometer is there but add A-GPS with it for Geotagging photos
* 3.2MP Camera (not flash still, no AF, but your pictures WILL come out better with AutoFix feature)
* Larger 2.2" screen vs the 2 on the w580 which visually IS noticeable.
* Stereo Speakers with a 3D speaker (on unit).
* A+B Gaming buttons.

Sony Ericsson unveiled its first Windows Mobile 6 Professional powered smartphone. Featuring the new Xperia panel-based home screen, the X1 has a unique arc form slide-out QWERTY keyboard, WVGA (800x480 pixel) touchscreen display, and built-in GPS receiver.

The Xperia X1 features quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz) and 4 bands of HSDPA/HSUPA (850/1700/1900/2100MHz or 900/1700/1900/2100MHz) support, as well as WiFi, for unbeatable connectivity. The slender Xperia X1 measures 110mm x 53mm x 17mm (4.3" x 2.1" x .7") and weighs in at 145g (5.1oz). A 3.2 megapixel camera with auto-focus and video capture is also on board.

I read and the rogers sales people told me about how they've had tons of the 580's come back with broken key pads. Of course metal is suseptable to scratches, have you taken a look at the back of an iPod lately? I've got mine wrapped in an invisible shield.

The Shine looks okay, but the stainless steel gets dark fast. Although I'm not much of a fashionista, I do try to take care of my toys. I'll just pay the same attention to it that I do with my MBP and it should stay new looking for a while.

The only issue I have with the phone is that its so thin. Even with its hefty weight, I'm afraid I might drop the thing :eek:

This is my current phone, a Samsung slider from Asia, which I've had for a couple of years. Can't wait for my Shine to arrive (likely Monday) and to switch to Bell from Rogers (those thieving mofos). Will post pics when it arrives.

I had the D600 for a bit, but the slider screen broke. Best phone in my opinion, but it DID give me an excuse to buy an iphone. :p

it's the t650i.

Did any of you PPC boys get a look at the SE Experia X1? I think later this year you'll like it when it debuts in retail markets.

I'm torn between BlackBerry 8120/8320 and SE K850i. problem is I know more than average about what boths phones can offer me, and what they can't.

Anyone have any new findings? A gentleman here had issues with upgrading his W800 firmware which I couldn't resolve. Was the firmware upgrade successful?

O2 XDA Orbit. Quad Band, so I can use it both here and on visits to the US.

Pretty much the perfect phone for me...

Samsung SCH - W330, one of the UGLIEST phone I have ever seen to my tastes.

I prefer a flip phone or an iPhone/Sidekick like design but the slide is alright if it's like a chocolate. The shape and the material/color scheme for this phone is totally off.

My parents wanted me to buy a cheap phone... so... damn.

Btw, that heart is one of those point/cash scan thingy lol. Has anyone seen these phone in real life or used one, I think the UI is like the Version one except it just looks prettied up but just as slow and confusing lol.

The phones I always go on about:
911T/920T http://www.intomobile.com/2007/04/08/toshibas-apple-iphone-killer-911t.html (if you want to know how to skin it like an iPhone, just ask me)
920SC (5 mega pixel) http://mb.softbank.jp/mb/en/product/3g/920sc/

I'm a little worried about buying a phone that was designed for the Japanese market. Does it also have GSM? Do I need to unlock it myself? It's also rather expensive and large.

Any other suggestions?

Yeh, I would have loved a flip iPhone, with the display on a two-axis hinge so it can be fully rotated to give us what looks a like a cross between a SH905i and an iPhone with multitouch. I'd buy two.

It's a great phone and I haven't heard of any dropouts from people using the same SIM hack as I do.

It's an amazing handset and I love flip phones to death. If this had multitouch... wow... just wow...

Whats so great about this phone other than the optical zoom and incredibly small text ability? Also whats the SIM hack? WHy would someone need to hack their SIM card - or is it just an unlock to use other providers SIM cards?

Lastly I'm thinking the spotty signal the previous person to you was mentioning is because it may not support the 850mhz band and the 1900mhz band is spotty at best. Sharp rarely makes phones for N/S American roaming in mind. Great Optical zoom though on the 904SH.

Very elegant phone that is. How is your Media Browser with an 8GB M2? Also did you use just the USB to copy your music over, like I did?

My current personal phone: K850i Blue Velvet (Rogers Locked & Branded).
Last 2 photos are the edges chipped/scarred from a recent drop (waist high for a guy thats 5'10") last weekend. Still rockin without issues. I was VERY lucky that the back of the phone is left pristine! Time for a case.

Mine came with a 2GB card and I've not really filled it up yet. Yep, I've just been copying manually by mounting it as a mass storage drive which is ok but I'd prefer it if they released some Mac compatible software. I tried using iTMW (http://ilari.scheinin.fidisk.fi/itunemywalkman/) but it didn't seem to work very well.

It's a very nice looking phone and very slim. It's also got a cool feature, TrackID, where you can record a couple of seconds of a song and it'll then connect to the Internet and get you the name. Pretty useless, of course, but cool nonetheless. :)

Well yours is also a SE A2 (A200) platform phone. New generation for short. its also compatible with the 8GB M2 card. I have the added benefit of also being able to use a MicroSD card or the M2 cards. But because mine is still branded, RSS Feeds are gone - cannot even save bookmarks of RSS Feeds, as well as TrackID is also removed by Rogers Wireless. I can flash it to a non-branded firmware - but I'm going to wait a bit longer.

TrackID is VERY useful. For example, I've been listening to the evolution of house music in all forms since 1987 (heck its all Disco/Funk/Columbian Salsa to me anyway). Back then I heard a about 3 songs that I can only HUM since then and couldn't find the names or the artists (they where originally released as "white-labels" and remained that way for 5yrs); because I didn't know them. Finally I tried TrackID. Took 2 times per song because I played it off of horrible computer speakers but it worked FLAWLESSLY in identifying them. Found 2/3 of those songs on iTunes and now I'm content with quality AAC versions :D

For those of you that would like such a feature, and if you phones support MIDP 2.0 of Java (most phones do), then you can use the .jar/.jad file from Motorola to do the same thing. Yes its free as well.

There's a shortage this weekend? :confused: I went to the Kansas City Apple Store in the Country Club Plaza. They were out, but my friend managed to call up a nearby AT&T store which had stock and reserved it for me.

Didn't know about a shortage.

Why bother? I'm happy with it not being a Music Edition. My firmware is more up-to-date, I have that music icon as my music player icon, and because of the firmware update, all the 'features' are as standard on mine. =]

I'm not using anything to sync with my Mac. I'm using the Google's calendar sync app for the BB to sync with my Google calendar (works great) and don't bother syncing contacts and such.

I gotta admit, yes, I actually took the most basic phone they offered, and it cost me a grand total of 1. For those who don't know, right now one US dollar earns you about 103.3 yen, so that should show you how cheap it was (less than a cent).

Here it is, the ultra-thin, basic model. The screen has the body of an e-mail on it.

Sorry for the late reply... don't check this thread often.

I miss using my DoCoMo ketai since I have come back to the states, i like it more than my iphone.

Has the felica/eddy system become more popular lately? Do you ever use it?

Think that depends on which part of Japan you're referring to. Certainly in
Tokyo, FeliCa is more widely used but not by everyone - i think.

Personally, I hate to think if I lose or damage my keitai someday, I'd
imagine i'll be pretty frustrated. I do use ez-felica to log in and out of our
workstations. I don't use it for banking, since a biometric bank cards (http://www.celent.com/PressReleases/20060329(2)/BiometricsJapan.htm) is more
secure. In Kansai, they haven't enabled FeliCa for travel yet. I'm hoping it'll
be soon?? I'd love to see a FeliCa reader on a MBP!!


Anyway, here's another new toy, call it the flavour of the month?

This is the Toshiba W56T on au, supports CDMA 1X.
It's powered by L4 Linux, has both ARM11 and ARM9E CPU,
800Mb of RAM with the option to expand. Got it free with au pts. Sweet!

Personally, I just like the OLE display it's bleedin' clear! I also like the
keypad, it's lovely and soft and I can thumble with it blindly. Yay! :D

I hate to admit it, but Three have made a damn good deal there! They are the best for net, I can buy a 5 add-on that will give me unlimited net access and even without that I can get into most of Planet 3 for free so I get news, sport, weather, FREE 3 EMAIL and everything! Its great!

If anyone on here has Skype then feel free to PM me your Skype name and I will add you!

How do you like it? I'm thinking of getting a RIZR Z3, which I think is quite similar, despite it's still awful UI. I just think it looks pretty. :D It's either that or a Sony K790i for about 50 bucks more, which is probably a better deal haha, since I want a nice camera.

Has anyone had a sidekick and a blackberry curve?

Which do you prefer?

Yes, I've owned both phones, but which phone haven't I owned :p

At any rate, you need to be more specific, which model sidekick are you looking at. Do you have T-Mobile (they ONLY work with T-Mobile), what are your needs?
If you're needs are simply texting, web browsing, and a phone- then sidekick hands down.
If you need up-to-the-minute pushed email, go with the blackberry.

Personally, I hate the design direction RIM is taking, their keyboards are really... really horrible these days- almost reminiciesnt of those found on Treos :eek:
Whereas the Sidekick has one of the best keyboards found on any phone.

So in conclusion, which phone is superior?

Well, the iPhone of course! :cool:

Which phone would I choose between the two? Sidekick- hands down.
