Installing Games on a Samsung SGH-A737

I've downloaded some free games online. They are said to be compatible with my exact phone. They have .jar and .jad files, and from what I'm familiar with, I need to run the .jad file in order to install. I even moved it to the "other files" folder on the phone. I figured out how to get to some kind of engineering menu but I'm afraid to use it without knowing what I'm doing.

But nothing is working, it still says "Unsupported File Type".

Help! How do I get this thing to unlock the java?

    That code doesn't work on this phone. We're talking about the A737, not e900. I know I can get to the engineering menu by dialing *#0523#. But that seems like maybe its a menu, maybe its just information. It's all in code though so i don't know what it means.

Samsung have locked down the e900. You cannot use many functions such as vib and ring and cannot install games freely. The jar and the jad file are needed for an install. The jar contains the game data and the jad lets the phone know how to install the game. When you select jad on your phone it will come up with the install error of unsupported fiel format - they dont want to make it easy for you to install games.
Instead return to the main screen (where you would type in a phone number). type the following.
*#9998*5282# it will then give you a menu with three options you need to choose the third option (install midlet). Once done it will ask you for a password. You need to type 235282. The browse to the file you would like to install and click on its jad file. It will then install your game to the java world folder where your others ones are. :)

I cant install any games on my sgh-e870 samsung phone, it says it doesnt support the format


you have java enabled phone mate you can download tons of game for your mobile avalable on papular site like www.mobile9.com.
your phone supports .jar extension types application.
that means application name should end with .jar
for example asphalt.jar
you must download game through your mobile because in some samsung phone they need to install through online.
your phone screen resolution is 176 x 220.
search java game for 176 x 220 resolution.

How i add games please tell me


Hello,
You can download games that compatible with Samsung SGH-G800 to your pc and then transfer the game files to your phone using the usb data cable.Follow the instructions to do so,

1) First thing you need to do is to find the games from internet and download them to your pc,you can type "download samsung SGH 800 games" in google to find games that's compatible with your phone model (only those games compatible with your phone model would work)

2) To get you started,here are few sites where you can download games for your phone model
http://www.mobilerated.com/samsung-sgh-g800-games.html to download games from this website,click on the game you want to download,then on the next page select 'Download' on the right hand side of the page and the links to download will appear under the title 'Installation files for
samsung SGH-800' click on the files called JAD and JAR one by one to download the files.Download both the files and put it in a folder in your PC where you can easily find them,like desktop.

3)Now all that is left to do is to transfer the downloaded files to your phone and you can then install
the games to the phone and start playing.

The quickest way to do this is to put your phone into Mass Storage Mode then connect it via the USB cable to your computer.To set your phone to Mass Storage Mode, do the following:

- Go to the main menu
- Select Settings
- Then Select Phone Settings
- Choose PC Connections from the menu
- And then click on Mass Storage.

3) Now connect the phone to your pc.Now
your phone will show up as a USB Storage device and you can just copy and past files to it like you would a USB Thumb drive.

4) Now you need to copy the downloaded jar and jad files from your computer and paste them on the folder named "other" from the new mass storage device (that is the phone) found on your 'My Computers' folder.

5) After copying the files,you can now disconnect your usb cable and now using your phone,browse to the 'other' folder and you should find the name of the game file you just copied form your pc.Open it using the ok or similar key on your phone and it will prompt you to install the game,follow the onscreen instruction to complete the installation.

6) Now you should find the installed game on your games folder in your phone.Feel free to ask any
clarification or doubts regarding this.

Hope it helped.Thanks for using Fixya!

How to put games on your samsung


1st - Type in the code *#9998*52824678255#
A message will come up saying activated. Now you are ready to install your java games.

2nd - Download a program called jad maker, because in order to install your java games you need the .jar file and the .jad and most torrents only include the .jar

3rd - Find some compatible java games to download.
You can find many games at: www.getjar.com

4th - Send the .jar and .jad file for the game to your phone, whether via bluetooth or usb cable.

5th - The files will most likely go to your other files folder. Open the .jad and it will install the game for you then ask if you would like to play it.

*Notes*
Each time you turn off your phone you need to re-enter the code.
Some games will simply not work on your phone.
If you would like you can reply with your phone model and list the games that work on that phone
