ringtone assigned in contacts?
I'd like a count-down timer & stop watch but they don't seem to be part of the phone. Guess I'll just download an app.
I have read on a forum for the phone on the T-Mobile site that ringtones can be assigned to individual contacts, but I don't see an option for that.
I've had the phone about a week & like it - just need to learn to use it.
questions & info.
I'm behind the learning curve.
Current questions: can I calibrate the screen for the touch typing? Can I assign individual ringtones to contacts - can I record or download those ringtones?
I like the cheap data plan, the phone seems to navigate the web (though a bit small & clumsy) & have a decent GPS.
I also like (so far) T-Mobile's on-line website, much easier entering contacts there then on the phone (yeah, did...
I don't know about assigning ringtones.
Download Google Maps, it connects to the GPS signal faster ...
T-mo vs ATT Data Plan
T-Mobile for whatever reason is not requiring the smartphone rates for data on this device.
I am considering the Nokia 5230 directly from Nokia which as ATT 3G frequencies.
I missed you Nokia! Bye ATT.
5230 Plain and Nuron
The Nuron has AWS band 3G. The 5230 has 850/1900 MHz WCDMA for 3G.
The Nuron has T-Mobile US 3G capability. The 5230 without the Nuron designation works on other 3G networks such as AT&T.
The 850/1900 version is available on the nokiausa.com web site. The Nuron, as of this moment, is not.
