Question about O2 XDA Mini S Smartphone

1 Answer

New Contacts have a 'm' or a 'w' automatically assigned to them.

When I add a new Contact, it is assigned an 'm' or a 'w' and it isn't included as part of my list of contacts that came from my Sim card. Those that are on my Sim card have a little icon of a sim attached to them and I can't sort by alphabet - I have to scroll down to relevant one.

'm' stands for 'mobile' #
'w' stands for 'work' number
it depends on the way you enter data into the 'contacts'
phone defaults to 'work' number.

Contacts keep disappearing from my blackberry 8900 but i have well over 90.000 bytes. what could be the problem?

the same thing has happened to me, and what i did bascially is go on contacts and then names. it shouldnt display anything, so you press add new contact. when you have done so, you add a contact, then you save it. when you did that dont go to your homepage, all you do is press back and then hopefully it says all your contacts.
you should have a backup of all your contacts as well!
oh and if that doesn. happen, then you have to contact your network, or if your phone is working, the it is your sim card which is proibably damaged...!
hope this helps! =]

I need to know how to delete ringtones and how to assign ringtones to contacts

to delete ringtones, open the file explorer application from progams. navigate to device\my documents\ my ringtones , select the ones you want and delete. nice and ease. set a new ringtone either in the sound and notifications section of settings, or on a file, tap and hold on the screen on a file you wish to have as a ringtone and select "set a ringtone". if you are looking for these as a message tone you need to convert the file to a .wav file and import this to the windows folder on the device then select in the sounds and notifications tab in settings.

assigning tones to contacts can only be done if your contacts are outlook contacts, not sim contacts. open and edit a contact, scroll down to ringtone, although again with these i belive the file must be a .wav file and be located in the windows directory.

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.

Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.

or if you wanna keep it on and add friends to the fdn

Add contacts to the FDN list
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click New.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.
6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.
To call your voice mail access number, hold 1.
To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key.
To type the first letter on a key, press the letter key once.
