GetJar and Movies

Can anyone give me a walkthrough on how to install javascript games on my T809. ie. www.getjar.com

Also, I have converted some movies 3gp, but when i transfer them to my phone, it doesn't even see the file as being on the memory card. I am transferring using the USB cable to phone.

Using this app - 3GP converter (zip File)

******THE REAL REASON THE T809 WAS DROPPED!!!**********

I think this phone was discontinued because You can flash the t809 to the original version of the phone and use it the way it was ment to be used. I think tmobile got wind of people flashing there t809's to the d820 and getting alot of funtionality that the t809 lacked for free and they didn't like it ๐Ÿคจ .

Here's a short list of the benifits of flashing to the D820 which is the real version of the t809:

* Mp3 as ringtone support (no renaming needed)
* No Ascending ringer
* Vibrate and ring simultaneously
* Email client
* Change soft key functions
* Install non-signed java applications ie; opera mini, google maps etc.
* Unlock the phone (use on any carrier)

As you can see there are many benifits that address most of the issues...

bluetooth connection

I have a Samsung t809 and I pair it to a Parrot CK3100 car device. My previous Motorola phones had no issues, in that every time I started my car, the phone and the Parrot would synch automatically. But with this t809, I have to go into settings each time and search for devices to connect to the Parrot. Is there a setting to have this happen automatically?

Unlocked from Tmobile, Use on Cingular

I have a T809 that I had personally unlocked it from T-Mobile, and now I use it on Cingular.

I went through all the steps of making the internet, and the MMS on the Cingular network by typing in the *# numbers.

Now the problem still remains is, none of my programs will connect to any network, besides the internet and my picture messaging. I was wondering if there was a way, like I changed the network preference for the internet and MMS, to change the network prefences for AIM and my GMAIL programs by the *# numbers.

Can anyone help?

Can an unlocked t809 still access the secret menu?

im about to get an unlocked t809. can it still access the secret menu that you get to by typing in *#8999*8378# and then tweaking the H/W test settings? i really liked how loud and clear my old t809 was (rest its soul) but it recently took a five story drop. โ˜น๏ธ

Watching full Hollywood movies on your T809

Hi folks. I've spent quite a few hours this weekend using trial-and-error in getting so that I can watch full movies on the T809. Finally I started having successes getting slightly shorter films on there -- like some Chaplin and Buster Keaton films, and now finally I've got North by Northwest and some other full-length features on there. HITCHCOCK ON MY T809!

In a nutshell, although there is specific software by Makayama that purports to do the conversion for you, I found I had the best success by (1) using ImTOO 3gp video converter, (2) finally hitting on a collection of configurations for bitrate, frame rate, etc., and (3) if the file size gets more than a certain size, using ImTOO to split it into two one-hour chunks.

I wrote up a...

PC or Mac phone manager.

Please forgive me if I missed finding this in my search.

Is there any phone manager software out there that allow you to go thru all the possible configurations/settings of your phone?

I know there is more then a few pieces of software that allow you to do phonebook, mms, calendar and that sort of thing.

I have tried MobileMAster, MobTime, PCStudio, Oxygen, Clever Cell & Wammu.

Thanks in advance.

2.5mm headset adapter?

I am thinking of purchasing this phone and have read some descriptions indicating that it comes with an adapter which would allow me to use the phone with a headset that has a standard 2.5mm miniplug. However, I can't seem to find any information to confirm that. Can anyone tell me whether the phone comes with such an adapter or whether and where it can be purchased aftermarket? Thanks

Permanent text message icon?

Got my T809 a couple weeks ago, very happy with it. However, I have a constant "new text message" icon visible on the main display, with a kind of flashing red bar in the upper right corner of it.

I have no new text messages anywhere; people have texted me since this icon appeared, and it seems to do nothing. Has anyone seen this / know how to fix it?

Build Quality


Great comments on the 809's build quality. This is an issue that has prevented me from purchasing any type of slider format handset. Not only to I find them cumbersome, but they're just itching to be broken. Having not seen your name before in these pages...welcome!
