How do you 'Expand The Memory ?'

I adore my new Shine. Its great but I love to have lots of Mp3 files so ive run outta internal memory to store my music. I know that you can expand the memory using 'Transflash' or 'MicroSD' cards but where and how am i supposed to put them in my phone? All advice will be appreciated. Thanks, =]

Re: How do you 'Expand The Memory ?'

You obtain a MicroSD card and you will find a small "Slot" in the phone that this MicroSD card goes into, usually under a Flap. Go to your local Phone store and purchace a compatable 1GB SMicroD card, insert into the slot and it will configure itself and ya can then store stuff to ya "New" memory. Have a look in ya manual for exact deatails.

I have an optimus camera and vdeo and can;t take any more pictures cause memory is full

Hello Sir, This is a problem caused when the memory is full of files. First check that are the files stored in the Ext. Memory or in the Internal. Omnia has 16GB Int. Memory, so I expect that you have stored the files in the External Memory. Try to view that memory status of the phone and check how much space is available. If none, that's the problem. If I assume you have 2GB Ext. Memory, then it is full. To free some memory, move the existing files to phone's Internal memory. Then some space will be free for you to store more files. If you don't want to move, try to change the default storage option of the files to " Phone ". This will make the phone store all future files into the Internal Memory.
I hope you have got your solution.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

You are goint to have to save all of your pictures on your computer. format your micro sd card. then proceed to put you images on the specefied folder. There should be a folder for images, sound (mp3), and video. If you fail to put the images in the specefied folder you will not be able to open them through your phone.

N73 cant send txt msge but can recive them

Happened to my n73 too. Format the phone to get rid of junk files stuck in the memory as well as viruses.

To format:
  1. turn phone off.
  2. hold the following keys WHILE its turning back on: (3 + * + green call key)
  3. do not let go until it asks you about your location
Your phone will gain 44mb back and go back to normal. Phone will respond a lot faster too, as if it were new. Viruses would be deleted as well as other junk stuffed inside.

Important reminder:

If you have anything stored on the phone memory that you woudn't want to delete, such as pictures, videos, or whatever, back it up to your memory card or computer. The format process deletes all stored memory on the phone, but not the memory card.

LG KE970 - Help with MP3!!

How to transfer music, ringtones, wallpaper, pictures, etc to ShineThis is relatively straightforward. The Shine just works as a removable USB drive.

1. Switch on the Shine ,and make sure it's in USB removable disk mode - it usually is, by default (Menu, Settings, Connectivity, USB connection, select Mass storage i.e. make sure that's ticked).

(Note: don't connect it to computer then turn on the Shine, it doesn't seem to like it. Make sure it's switched on before you connect it to the computer.)

2. Connect it to your computer with the supplied USB cable. (Unlike with the Chocolate, you can then close the slider and this will still work. But best to leave the slider open as you connect it, just in case.)

3. Open your computer's file manager e.g. My Computer or Windows Explorer if you have a Windows computer.

4. The Shine will show up as an extra removable disk, in the case of my computer it's drive G, see the pic below which shows its subfolders (Documents, images, Others etc):

5. In fact, two separate removable drives will show up:
  • one for the Shine phone's built-in internal memory (just 50 MB for the current 2G model, see my review - a 3G Shine phone with 560 MB internal memory will be launched soon), and
  • one for any micro-SD card you get (no card supplied; you have to buy your own but you can get up to 2GB) - in the pic above it's drive F, the card shows up as an earlier letter than the phone memory, go figure. Of course if you don't have a card you'll just get "Please insert a disk into drive WHATEVER" if you try to click on the memory card's drive and you'll have to Cancel out of it).
6. There are several subfolders for the Shine internal memory, as you can see from the pic (your mileage may vary):
  • Documents - put DOC, XLS, PPT, PDF, TXT files in here and you can view them on the phone if they're not too big
  • images - put JPEGs, GIFs and SWF files in here
  • Others - use this as storage for files you want to transport. You can't view or play anything that's in here, sadly. But you can put .jad and .jar files for Java games and other Java applications in here, and install them from here - see below.
  • Sounds - put MP3s or WAVs in here for ringtones or the music player - yes you can have subfolders unlike with the Chocolate, see below
  • Videos - put video files here.
7. You can just drag and drop (or copy/paste) music files etc to and from the Shine folders and your computer via your file manager. For example you can backup voice files recorded with the Shine, or pics or videos taken with the Shine camera, to your computer from the Sounds and images (or Videos) folder.

Sounds folder - the Shine manual is misleading (well OK, never mind tact, it's just plain wrong). It says you have to put MP3s in the Sounds folder only (there are wrong references to a My Media folder too, not to mention an "MP3" folder). That's the case with the Chocolate - you can't play anything that's in a subfolder - but not with the Shine. I started investigating as I noticed that despite the manual there was a menu command to create a new folder within Sounds. From trial and error I've found that:
  • you can create a subfolder of Sounds called "MP3", and in fact on my phone anyway the original sounds from the phone as well as new stuff magically appears in that folder
  • you can also create other subfolders within Sounds, and both WAVs and MP3s put into that folder are fine. So you should be able to organise your music more easily into subfolders, and still play them. Which is as it should be.
Others folder - on the Chocolate, at least images in the would show if you tried to open them, etc. On the Shine, the Others folder is pretty useless. You can't do anything with stuff in there. The only function of the Others folder as far as I can see is to act as storage, a holding area for files which you might want to use your Shine to transport between two computers.

Documents folder - for Word, text, Excel, Powerpoint and PDF documents - they'll display on the Shine if you put them in that folder. Read-only, i.e. you can only view them, you won't be able to edit them. But you can move around the document quite well and zoom in and out. Note you can only open small documents - you can try transferring big documents to the Shine if you like, but if you try to view them it may not do it, or may crash, or both.

images folder - a fun touch - if you have Flash .SWF files, you can put them in images and play them on the Shine. There are some on there already that you can play with; I do!

8. Disconnecting the phone - the Shine has big warnings on its screen about making sure you safely remove hardware. So best to do that. See "Disconnecting" on my Chocolate connectivity post on how (for Windows PCs anyway).
