Upload phone data to PC

Has anyone tried to upload data from their Sanyo 8100 phone to their PC? I found a few different software programs but can't figure out if any of them will upload the cameraphone photos I assigned to individual phone numbers.

All of the software programs will upload my names and phone numbers, and they'll all let you download ringtones or images FROM the PC TO the phone, but I can't find specifics for transferring images FROM phone TO PC.

Does anyone know of any software that will do this for the Sanyo 8100??

sending pics from 8100 to computer, or other phone?

Hi everyone. Can someone tell me if there is a way for me to send my 8100 pictures (taken with the camera), to my computer so that I can then put them on my new 8300 (when I decide to get it)?

I have a few pics in "Review/Share", and several more in "Picture Wallet", but I don't see any option to upload those in the latter folder.

I'd prefer not to have to sign up for any plans or but special software, but I really would like to do this even if it does take some effort.

Horrible sound

Does incoming calls sound like you're talking to someone in a cave or is it me? I had the software updated and it still is the same. Sad

Wierd Messaging

Can anyone tell me if they've receive a txt message saying "numeric page". I've received this twice now and the "sender" is a known contact that did not text message those words.
It seems very odd...

Has anyone received this? or can anyone shed light on this? is it some kind of hidden feature or alert?

Rolling Eyes

I have a sprint PCS sanyo 8100 that I am going to sell but I want to clear the PRL. Since I do not sell phones for Sprint I do not have the programming instructions for it. Since the carrier that I work for does not carry the sanyo phones I don't have the resource to get it except here.

Anyway, if anyone can give me the instructions to get into the PRL to delete my personal info, that would be great.

Here is the info from my phone that you may need.

ESN: 24709537009
esn Hex: F79185F1 38


If anyone has any iformation please let me know. At my carrier we have a special code for the PRL. I would need that along with the prgramming Instructions.

Thanks a bunch!!

a buddy of hime was unloading some phones that he had and gave me his scp-8100. I was wondering if this phone could be used on another carrier (cingular/suncom) or is it just a sprint phone?

Sanyo 8100 Key events skipping problem

I have some problems with Sanyo 8100 phone (Sprint Carrier). The problem is,

I have a situation in which networking activity is going on with some UI key press events are also to be handled simultainously. Now the thing is, in 8100, I can see that some key press (and some key release) events are being skipped.

I tried a simple key press and release tracking by printing the key press and release count on the device. And it clearly showed that the key press and some key release events are being skipped.

Now...The same build works perfectly on Samsung A620 (Sprint) phone. It gives a delay or the keypress and release events but it doesn't skip them.

The normal key handling logic of the...
