    telling everyone how much better my phone is than their crappy nokia, everyone is always 'what phone is that?' 'what does it do' 'holy shi*, that phone is ace' makes me laugh
  1. cheers for clearing that up for me ;) guess i have never seen it cos i dont use templates an stuff, i believe it is actually quicker to type it in than go for that text anyway, so its just for the lazy people then :P stu
  2. having searched on the forum i have noticed that no-one has put this up on the forum. every now and then i get rid of crap thats on my c550, opened up smart explorer and was searching stuff i could get rid of folder by folder to make the phone run a tad quicker, not that it runs slow by any means!! i went to the path: storage\my documents\UAcontents this opens up several files which are data folders, which i cannot access without any muckin about, so i then saw the 'CannedText' files, not knowing what these were i knew i could view the text files on my phone so had a look, the date these files were made were 16.6.05 4 files dated this date 11.3.06 1 file dated this date im not quite sure but i think i had the phone on both of those date so nothing had been added at orange or htc then? what are they? well, cannedtext 407 is german message cannedtext 409 is english message cannedtext 40C is french message cannedtext 410 is spanish message cannedtext 413 is ? not any language i understand anyway? but my english is suprisingly good!! so i grabbed the english file off my phone (the others are not retrievable through active sync??) here it is:
  3. i thought they had the same screen? but the c600 isnt as recessed? arent the different home screens cos they have to be specifically for windows 5?? on the orange site they list the features of the 2 phones, i think they couldnt be bothered to list the c600 features? i guess that the 600 has most of the 550 features apart from the oh so stylish front menu page with the icons, another way to wear out the joystick :D my mate has the 600 and he is ranting and raving about how much better it is than the 550 (his last phone was a 500), i would still rather stick with my 550 till something else comes along without a bloody joystick!!! c600 Bluetooth technology downloadable games infrared connection Mega Pixel Camera MP3 player polyphonic ring tones quad band technology real sound ring tones speaker phone Video Messaging wap Windows compatible c550 advanced colour gaming Bluetooth technology built-in camera call divert call waiting/hold conference calling diary digital zoom downloadable games downloadable ring tones and screen savers email GPRS HTML browsing infrared connection instant messaging Java™ capable Java™ games and applications keypad effects last number redial Mega Pixel Camera MP3 player packet video player Photo Messaging Picture Messaging polyphonic ring tones predictive text input real sound ring tones screensavers selection of games supports Orange Music Player tri band technology vibrating alert Video Messaging voice activated dialling wallpapers wap Windows compatible wirefree™ modem
  4. all on orange everyday 50 for years now on the 200min 600 text tarriff? talk 200? cant find the bit of paper :) nokia 3210 nokia 8210 lost nokia 8310 broken (screen) spv (still have gathering dust if anyone wants it? for a price of course) spv e200 sold f0r 100 quid!!! spv c550 still own despite hating the cacky joystick that has a mind of its own!!! :twisted:
  5. on reinstalling active sync to try and cure a transfer problem, it is still getting on my nerves!!! what i am trying to do is drag and drop or copy and paste a .wav file to the aplication/sounds folder to use as a ringtone, it doesnt transfer across and i cant work out why, it is 2mb in size, i usually have no problem gettin stuff to/from my phone but it has just stopped letting me do it? with any file too!! jpegs, 3gp etc, all settings are as factory set them to, all active sync settings are as normal and i cant work out what the hell is going on, anyone else had this problem, the file wont transfer but when you try a second time to transfer it disconnects my sync with my phone!!! the file is part transferred and a file type icon is displayed see pic, but it is not a file 0kb etc etc i have been using active sync for a few years now with my spv, e200 and now c550 but never had any problems with it?? until now, quick fix, or pc problem? just got to add that everything was fine until i added a 1gb sandisk as well, but everything copied across ok, but now nothing will, and no, it isnt full :o cant be that can it, if it is, what fixes/options do i have to sort it out?? spud
  6. site here i visited the boxwave/flexiskin pages again to see if a c550 skin had been made yet to find the o2 x phone II/htc amadeus has one available, has anyone been impatient enough to get one for their c550 as its not for it or are people waiting for them to get their arses into gear and do it specifically for the c550, i do generally need a case like the flexiskin as my line of work requires a kinda shock proof cover but not a 2.99 taiwanese mock leather job from the local market with included belt clip :) does anyone actually still buy those? my 550 works fine, no dead pixels, no crap battery life, roughly 4-5 days with daily use and the joystick works fine ;) am i on my own here? :( spud
  7. ive found the 550 battery is way better than my e200 but that goes without saying, i got mine at about 3pm and whacked it on charge without turning the blighter on, left it overnight, say about 20 hours in total and got back to it turned it on, went out to a festival type thing, took a load of pics, shot some video, played with all the new stuff on it, got a bit pissed and woke up the next day with it still switched on and not on charge, it was still about 85%battery, the other day i went my mates house after charging it up, got to his place, it was 100%, 4 hours later i went to bed, woke up in the morning and it was still 92% whereas my e200 wouldve been squeezing every last drop of battery life as if it was in warp drive, a vast improvement over the e200, i didnt want the c500 so i waited, that centre rocker thing looks so naff i was emabrassed to get one so i waited for the 550 got my head round the video size problems of wmv's by instead of using movie maker setting of 140ish kb setting for pocket pc i use 220 ish kb and it plays full screen. im well happy, glad i havent got a stupid rubber bung to lose with this one either :)
  8. got my 550 now, after lookin at it for a while im impressed but also dissappointed at the same time, i have put a few wmv movies on my 550 and the screen size in full screen is tiny, wether that is cos the 550 can handle larger bit rates i dunno, but thats my first worry, i was lookin forward to full screen movies with seein my mates with their c500's! i will find a way. when i lock the keypad its the same as before, when i press the key to start unlocking it flashes up with time and date in large numbers, weird? the 'media' buttons look good as they are but i have loaded a few mp3 tracks and they have no control over what is playin???!!! any press of those buttons takes you to a different player, the music player rather than windows media 10 player, the music player requires connection to gprs so is gonna cost me money every time i want to use it, i have a couple of gigs worth of mp3s to use, why should i use the music player over my free tracks in media player!!!! bad drills!!
  9. in my experience i have never had to pay for a phone wether it is normal crappy nokia or smartphone, my spv served me well, sits in pride of place gathering dust on my shelf now, my e200 is just about to be replaced by my c550 that i have just ordered, cant get much cheaper than free, the deal i got was: obviously ive deleted my details on that pic click here i know its only pre ordering but it'll be with me as soon as its released
  10. ive had a look on the forum an not seen this question asked yet (if it has dont shoot me) i have an e200, love the phone but my friend has just got his c500, the media player on his c500 plays fullscreen with going into menus in media player and selecting fullscreen, is there an update for the e200 that can play media player files fullscreen or not? if it is just for the c500 then i'll finally admit defeat an grant him that his c500 is better than my e200 :roll: :) cheers for any replies spudboy
  11. just taken delivery of a brand new not reconditioned e200, so i got a whole load of spare stuff like a 32 meg sd, hands free, cradle. so im gonna sell it on ebay, basically everythin bar the charger an handset, take my hat off to orange for a change for bein so quick! :D
  12. went to the orange shop and they tested the phone with a spare battery, i was shocked to see they had a spare battery seein as they havent had any 200's for months, but he tried it in the back of the shop so i am not trusting that, am gonna go up to my friends house later an try his battery, but the 'orange here to help' guy said that the phone is totally knackered an i will have to get it replaced by orange. but the same guy also told me i had to send off my previous spv cos it locked on start screen, i came on here an downloaded the lastest upgrade at the time, but i dont think i have been so lucky this time, guess my car chrager has somehow blown it? or the shop on the site where i was staying have? either way its back to my buggy, scratched, and really good battery :D spv spud
  13. thank god for this site, i just posted about my battery bein knackered, i was using my e200 with a car charger from orange shop, yes it knackered my battery completely, wont charge at all, no charging light, wont turn on, wont do anything, i took my old spv with me an that charged up in car, but i think my e200 has had the life sucked out of it big time, wont even charge through 240 volt 3 pin at home, need a new battery!!!!!!! thanks guys/girls :D gonna go down to the orange shop in a min and wrap the car charger round the dumb ass's neck an stick the plug where the sun dont shine i reckon, will report back :D
  14. having had my e200 for about 3 weeks, i noticed that the battery life is nowhere near as good as my original spv, battery hardly lasts more than a day!!!!!! i wrote this off as bein that i am using it more than my previous spv cos of the 'new phone, lets play with it' usage, but a couple of days ago i was on holiday with no electric sockets to charge it up apart from leave it with the site shop for a pound, i collected it and it was totally dead, wont turn on, wont show charging status (no orange light), since returning from hols i left it on charge overnight and still nothing, have left battery off for a couple of hours and still nothing!!!! do anyone have any ideas before i start ripping into orange for sending out dodgy batteries????? apart from that problem, i love my e200, sooooo much better than my spv, all the bugs my spv had were all sorted for e200 spud, thanks in advance :D any answers by mail send to [email protected] i posted in the wrong bit with this topic, sorry guys an girls, posted in spv/e100 bit by mistake edit: think i have found the problem, i used an orange car charger to charge it up, and this killed the battery, it was on the red light an i plugged it into charger, then i suppose it just pulled the guts out of my battery :cry:
