VERY IMPORTANT! News about Bitpim for our phones!!!


Oct 18, 2005, 12:04 AM
Here is the message i sent earlier this afternoon to RPI Wireless, apparently they are Bitpim's biggest contributor, so i figured it would be wise to give them a shot.

Hi, i was reading on the Bitpim website that you were one of the biggest contributors to the Bitpim process, and getting phones supported. I am a proud owner of the new Verizon Samsung SCH-A950, and i saw that it is not supported yet by Bitpim. Between myself and many other owners of this phone (as seen on phonescoop.com forums), we would like to see some features of the phone unlocked, mainly so we can use our mp3s loaded from our memory cards as ringtones, which currently cannot be done. If you would consider lending the Bitpim developers a phone if they have no...

In the meantime you can use Mobile17.com. They don't have the A950 on there yet, but when you first register choose the A890 as your phone. Once you register, choose to receive the ring tone as a picture message. Then you pick an MP3 to upload and choose the length of the ring tone. They will send you the song which you will be able to save in "My sounds". Once it's in my sounds you can then set it as a ringer. Hop this helps.

this actually works VERY well in the meantime, can i save these sounds onto my memory card and have it work the same way? i dont know how big each of these files are and dont want to use up all the phone's memory, lol

Thanks for recommending the site, it will DEFINITELY hold me over till Bitpim is ready 🙂

Was an A950 ever sent to the Bitpim folks?

This is great, but how do you choose the length, and which length do you need to choose for ringtones?

Thanks for passing word on this site- it's a great resource.

I tried a couple mp3 files and they sounded nasty. Is this the source or the freebie conversion? I'm wondering if I shouldn't expect great sound quality from a .mp3 to .mid conversion...?

The freebie conversion is what makes it sound sub par, i can deal with it for now but i'm keeping my fingers crossed that Bitpim can crack the phone very soon, i know they are in the process of it now. I'm getting antsy, lol.

I emailed Robert at RPI Wireless again to see what our status was, here was his response.

The phone is not in our possession yet, we should have it in about two days and it will then be forwarded on to the Bitpim programmers which should get it supported by the next version update. The will have the phone by the end of the week.

Best regards,

Axl Rose said it best, all we need is just a little patience. 😉

How can they do anything with the phone until USB drivers are written? I didn't think the bitplm project included writing USB drivers for the phone.

I believe RPI wireless writes the USB drivers or has FutureDial do it. They are the main suppliers of data cables for various phones and offer links to futuredial's site for drivers.

Could be wrong of course. 😉

I do not believe they do. The links on their webpage to phone drivers (links go to a useless page actually) indicate that they do not write the drivers.

The Mac doesn't need drivers but the PC does.
