Downloading new MIDlets..
I don't know about you, guys. But i've just got this phone and i've tried to download a customised MIDlet and the phone doesn't install the application on itself.
I'm trying to get some explanations about why it doesn't work but after sell the stuff, the company doesn't help us anymore.
I'm very disappointed with this phone. I think i will destroy this phone and ask my insurances to give me another model.
No message alert lights
I find this very strange in a phone that is advertised as a text messaging phone.
It also doesn't show any light when charging or when it has been charged. You have to actually open the phone to see if it has been charged or not.
I'm going to try to exchange this phone.
how about T9 vs. iTap?
Also I think I'm faster on iTap sometimes than on someone's Blackberry with a QWERTY keyboard, though I'm sure that's just because I use it every day and am more used to typing on a real keyboard using all 10 of my fingers instead of just my thumbs.
It would be interesting to compare them too, though this FasTap just seems like a silly idea. For how many keys it puts on the keypad you might as well have QWERTY or SureType (the 20-key layout on slimmer Blackberries like the 7130).

Has anyone used their 490 with a bluetooth?
Does anyone have this phone or the LG 6190 that can either confirm or dispute this?

Conclusion is Unfair. Try input 'me" with T9. See how long it will take.
2.shift to "Abc" input
4. shift back to "T9" (only if the message is really long)
See how long that will take.
Or there is any secret shortcut of T9 that I didn't know?
That doesn't take very long.
1. hitting 53 (for me). get the readout "of"
2. hit the next word key (whatever that is on your phone, usually 0, *, or down on the d-pad) to get "me"
that's only 3 clicks. not bad.
i can't figure out how to use this.
Let's say you're in T9 mode and you want to type "Hello". You simply click number key where each letter is located once and as you're typing T9 will guess the word t...
what nokia is that in the video
it seems to have a big and crisp screen.
It's a QVGA display, so yes, it's very large and high-resolution.
Type of ringtone
Keyboard layout :(
The reaction has been thus:
If you are very use to T9, it is no faster than T9.
If you are phone noob, it is much easier and people type faster on the FASTAP keypad.
