Alright, so here's the deal. I just recently bought my new Samsung SPH-m300 and found out it couldn't take in custom ringtones because:
1) It doesn't come with a USB cord, and I really don't wanna go buy one UNLESS It's deemed necessary
2) I gotta use this program BitPim
Yes, I'm a newbie when it comes to BitPim but the most I learned was that it tricks the phone or something.I use BlueSoliel Bluetooth to TRY to send everything over but when I get BitPim to locate the phone it always says it can't find it. And I doubt it's the Bluetooth because it says it's all paired and what not.Unless there's some secret driver I don't know about.I have a HTC S720, and for those who are familiar with that phone. It obviously doesn't need Bluetooth or BitPim because it has it's own USB and you can just upload ringtones into it using Sync.If not BitPim, is there another way I could at least try to transfer or something to get custom ringtones into it?
So I recently got a Wafer, and was surprised that you couldn't make your mp3s that you can freely put on as your ringtones. So I'm trying to use Bitpim to access my phone. The situation is as follows: Got a Wafer (SCH-R510) Got Bitpim Got Macbook Pro (1yr old now) I'm trying to access my Wafer with my MBP using Bitpim, but when it does the detect phone thingy, my Wafer says <computer user name> is trying to connect, and I say OK, then asks for a key phrase, but Bitpim or my MBP didn't offer me anything like that. If anyone has have experience with MBPs and syncing chained phones (my Wafer), any help is greatly appreciated.
I have been using the voice and messaging features of my Verizon Wireless Prepaid Samsung Intensity (Samsung SCH-U450) on the PagePlus network for quite some time. I have been unable to get the mobile web feature working though. When I try to access the mobile web, it takes me to the page wanting me to pay 1.99 to verizon for one day's usage. This of course doesn't work.
I have the Samsung Intensity U450 and I'm on Telus here in Canada. I am able to use Rumkin's Phone Uploader to send myself a link to the MP3 I want to use as my ringtone. However, once I open the link up in my browser on the phone, it just loads and then plays the song. All I see is a play button. How can I download it?
I am able to connect my epix via usb cable but can't connect via bluetooth. Both my laptop (running vista) and my phone see each other. Everytime I try to connect the passkey comes up and as soon as I enter it and click next it immediately fails. Doesn't matter which device initates the passkey I get the same results. Anyone else having this issue? I can connect via bluetooth on my work pc(XP pro) but it took alot of tries to get it to work. Appreciate any help I can get.
I have BJ2 but I don't have a data plan. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to connect to the internet on my BJ2 using my PC's internet connect through Bluetooth?I got it to work, but I have to have MS ActiveSync connected. The problem I am having though is that ActiveSync won't stay connected with my phone. It automatically and randomly disconnects. I don't even move my phone away from my Bluetooth adapter which is connected to my laptop. They are right next to each other. I am running XP and WM 6.1 on my BJ2.
I have found that when the front keypad lock is on there are a couple of buttons that still work. First the 0 button still works and if you hold it down you can unlock the key pad. Also the power button still works so if you hold that button down the phone turns off. This would be fine I guess but I pants pocket has learned how to do both of these operations. how to fix this? Hidden menus? Duck tape? Wearing no pants?
I got the Samsung intensity friday and already have payed 4$ for a ringtone. Does anyone know any ringtone hacks? I also bought a micro SD card and was fooling around with it trying to get some ringtones, but couldnt find anything. Has anyone been able to do this?
I formatted, then put a couple of songs on it to test it out. The phone recognized and played them, so then I added the rest of my music to the memory card. There's about 14 gb on the card now, so it's almost full. The phone also accurately tells me that there's about 14gb of the memory card that's occupied. BUT The music player now only puts a small portion of all those songs into its playlist, I would say it only plays about 2 gb out of the total 14 gb. I also cannot choose which songs get put on the playlist. I am on Telus, NOT Verizon, by the way. Why can't I access ALL my music in the music player? Is there a maximum to the number of songs in the mp3 playlist that I wasn't aware of? Did I buy the wrong memory card?
Have tried holding various keys in an attempt to access a BIOS screen or some such thing to no avail (why aren't cell phones more like computers?). As for how my phone got to this state...
-I wanted to add custom ring tones to my recently purchased Samsung Intensity but found that texting them to myself via vzwpix.com led to a significant decrease in quality and the costs would quickly add up as I attempted to fix the issue by editing the sound files in Audacity and texting newer versions to my phone
-To get around using vzwpix.com, I found a method of putting the files directly on the phone by installing the phones drivers to my computer using Samsung PC Studio 3 and moving them directly to the phone using Qualcomm Product Support Tools. The method is copy+pasted below for reference
-After a while I got the ring tone to how I wanted it and went to delete the experimentation files on the phone. I had done this in the past through the phone's interface without issue (though an attempted file rename had caused a quick freeze which was solved by removing and replacing the battery), but this time it froze when attempting to delete the final file
-The phone would not respond to any keypad presses including the power button, so I chose to restart the phone by removing and putting back in the battery
-The phone will no longer pass the "Verizon Wireless" screen and reboots after hanging on that screen for ~7 seconds
Pasted below is the complete method I used to transfer the files for reference. Other smarter methods may exist, but given the issue I had with vzwpix.com, my lack of a mircoSD card, and my desire to avoid media messaging charges I elected to go with this method. Credit goes to ch from the Mobiledia forums for figuring this out and typing this up. It works beautifully aside from the issue I have had. I suggest that anyone who chooses to use it remove sound files from the phone only through QPST and not through the phone's interface.
Software required: 1.Samsung PC Studio 2. QPST (Or other software to allow you to browse the phone's file system)
1. Install Samsung PC Studio (Will only be used to install drivers for the intensity) 2. Change USB Port Map to "Modem" on your phone a. Go to Settings & Tools > Phone Info > and then press the # button. b. Enter 000000 for the lock code. c. Select option 2 "Port Map" d. Select option 4 "USB" e. Select option 4 "Modem" 3. Plug phone into usb port. 4. Go to device manager and install drivers for the unidentified devices a. The drivers will be located in C:Program Files SamsungSamsung PC Studio 3 5. Start QPST EFS Explorer 6. Browse to brewmodmr on the phone 7. Delete MrInfo.db 8. Drag and drop your mp3 ringtone files into this directory 9. Restart the phone. 10. A new MrInfo.db file will be created. Copy it to your desktop. 11. Edit the file with notepad. You should see an entry for each sound file in the directory, followed by |0|0 or something like that. For the first file change the second 0 to a 2. For the next file change that same zero to a 3, and so on. I guess the second zero just needs to be a 2, 3, or 4. 12. Copy MrInfo.db back to the phone in same directory. 13. Reboot the phone and your mp3 will show up under the "My Ringtones" menu.
I have a samsung Intensity (sch-u450) which recently entered a never-ending reboot loop. I've tried taking out the battery for a while, then starting it again to no avail. I'm not sure what could have caused this since, as far as I know, nothing changed from the last time the phone restarted. Is there any way I can basically reformat the phone (or fix the restart loop)?
I have an SGH-X820 with files that i would like to transfer to my computer. The problem is, the phone is damaged, and i cannot charge it via the normal connection port (i also cant use a data cable). It has bluetooth capabilities, which i've used to connect to other phones and a headset, but i can't connect it to my computer. My computer won't find it, and it won't find my computer. It's activated and discoverable. I'm using Vista, my computer's bluetooth is on, i don't know what else to do. I want to transfer these files before the battery dies out, as i don't have any way of charging the phone after that.
Hey, I'm new here and I was just wondering if anyone could help me out.I have a Samsung F700 on VodaFone UK and an Apple iMac OS X Leopard with built in bluetooth. As the USB cable doesn't work with leopard I attempted to use the bluetooth feature to send a photo from my iMac to my phone. I went through the setup wizard, paired my mobile phone, entered the access key but whenever I click send file on the iMac nothing happens. No menu comes up asking me which file I want to send. If I highlight the file and right click > send file nothing happens then either.
Has anyone been successful in getting the Rhapsody To Go subscription service working on a Verizon Samsung Intensity? This phone is marketed by Verizon as being Rhapsody capable. Despite this, I have seen threads in many places regarding 'certificate' errors when trying to sync Rhapsody To Go music - and with both Verizon and Real Network's inability to resolve the problem. It is not clear to me that anyone has successfully resolved this issue. To be clear, I have no problem loading tracks purchased outright via Rhapsody, or ripped directly from CD's - but have had no luck using my VCast Rhapsody To Go ($14.99/mo) tethered subscription to function with the Intensity.
since MPT won't work with my Razr V3m, i have resorted to Bitpim, but the problem is that bitpim can't detect my phone also. so i need to download a driver for my phone first or what do i need to do so get Bitpim to connect to my phone
I seem to be having issues with connecting my LG AX8600 to any software. Iíve tried Bitpim and Handset Manager.I connect the USB cable to my phone then to my computer and I can see my SD card in My Computer and can transfer the files that way.I canít get Bitpim to recognize the phone.When I tried installing the cable driver using the link on http://global.mobileaction.com/downl...ID=727&go=+Go+ it gets to a certain point and I get a popup that says;
1.Power on headset 2.Attach MA 8072P To headset 3.Plug MA 8072P into USB port 4.If MA 8072P is already plugged into PC, unplug it and wait 3 seconds, then plug it into the USB port again The pop up has an OK and a CANCEL button but only the CANCEL button is clickable
I do all the things it says to do but I canít click on the OK button. So I click on the CANCEL button and it does not complete the driver install.Also my phone's screen flashes between screens saying.USB driver is in use.All calls are disabled Stop USB connection from computer to exit
I'm generally happy with the Intensity... except for one quirky problem. The calender wont let me enter information for previous dates because it wants to set an "ALERT" for the event. All previous dates would have an "INVALID ALERT TIME." I want to keep track of some past events. Is there something I'm not seeing? Or is there a way around this? I've looked for way to reset the phone's DATE but haven't found that either.
I cant connect to bitpim.. i connect to Hw virtual port and bitpim still wont find it.. i also tried putting the phone in bootloader and still nothing.. what am i doing wrong? oh and i also have the drivers installed for it.
I just purchased an LG Venus (Note: It's an LG8800, not LG-VX8800) from telus and i would like to connect it to bitpim to add some ringtones...i realize that there are various posts concerning this topic but i'm having an exteme amount of difficulty. I have already tried to connect the phone using the VX8800 Venus setting but it wont connect. I can't find any drivers for this phone to connect to the computer. I went to telusmobility.com/lgvenus in hope of finding a driver. I found a link under the support page...and well...got a blank page with no download.
I have never had a problem with BitPim until I bought the VX9400 (I previously had the 7000 and 4400). After I plugged in my phone to my computer, it found the hardware for the serial port, modem and the driver. I then open BitPim v. 1.0.1 and it won't work. Any thoughts on what I could be doing wrong and something I may have overlooked or need to DL?I also set the connect in the settings to USB and turned off Bluetooth, even though I don't believe that would interfere.
My new phone is correctly paired with the blurtooth in my 2011 Subaru Forester and connected and worked, but does NOT auto-connect when I restart the car, I have to go into bluetooth settings on my phone, and tap the device "Car_Media" to make a connection. My previous phone worked correctly and auto-connected when I started the car.. I've fully deleted all devices and pairings from the car and the phone and re-paired the new phone several times. NG.† How do I get the Atrix to auto-connect?†
I've been having a lot of trouble getting this to work, and while I think I may have figured it out, I am not home yet, can't try it yet, and I still have a lingering question.Do I need to have a driver for the phone installed if I'm connecting via BT? I'm pretty sure it's only needed for USB connections, but I thought I would ask.Also is it a possibility that my Bluetooth driver may be causing problems?
This tutorial will show you how to set up BitPim with the LG Voyager on a Mac computer running Tiger. (It should be very similar on Leopard)
Warnings: 1.If you screw stuff up (which I don't see how you could) It's your own problem. 2.This tutorial requires half a brain and basic knowledge of how a mac and a cellphone work. If you lack either of these, oh well.
Step 1: Download and install the mac version of the test releast of bitpim at http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/b...4.dmg?download
Step 2: Set your mac computer to "Discoverable Mode". (Click the apple in the top left corner --> Click system preferences --> Click Bluetooth --> Click Settings --> Make sure "Discoverable" is checked and Bluetooth is set to "On".)
Step 3: Pair your phone with your mac computer. (On your phone: Click menu --> Bluetooth --> Add new device --> make up a passkey. i use 123456. --> select your computer when your phone finds it --> enter the passkey on your computer. --> they should say that they are paired.)
Step 4: Open BitPim. Let it do its setup stuff. It should give you some kind of error if it trys to configure. Just wait until it says ready at the bottom left corner of the program. Now click "BitPim" at the top left hand corner of your compute and then click "Preferences...". Leave this box open.
Step 5: If you have closed your Bluetooth settings box open it again (see step 2). Click on Devices and select your phone. Then click on edit serial ports and click apply. (you may have to leave open the edit serial ports dialog again and leave it open if step 6 dosent work properly)
Step 6: On the BitPim in the preference dialog: select your phone (LG VX10000). Then click manual select comm port. Choose the one that is like BTDIAG. Click OK
can u use bitpim with the lg env2 using bluetooth to connect 2 devise if yes can you explain because i have tried and it wont detect phone.i selected my phone and selected bluetooth com port 3 and it wont detect it. im using the latest version of bitpim
I noticed that after a time, the Scoop bluetooth power (after turning Scoop bluetooth power on) turns itself off if a bluetooth device isn't connected to it. This is irritating since it would be nice to keep the power on always so I can just power up my bluetooth earpiece and it be recognized by the phone. I do have both paired etc. So the process goes, turn Scoop bluetooth power on, then turn on bluetooth earpiece, then phone recognizes bluetooth earpiece.Is there a magic setting (using BitPim for example) that will keep the Scoop bluetooth power on?
All my past phones would allow me to turn on any bluetooth device, then pair it. After that, the phone would know that device when it was powered up.
I recently bought a vx8100. I am runnnig the most recent release of BitPim (8.0.4?). I am connecting through bluetooth on OSX.I can read all of the data from the phone just fine. Contacts, wallpaper, etc. all show up. The phone appears to paired up correctly, and I assume that I have the right port configured, since I can read all of the data.When I try to send the new ringtones, I get an error that says that the phone is not responding when bitpim is writing to the filesystem (I am at work, so I don't have the exact message).
When I look at the protocol log, everything looks correct until bitpim tries to write. It successfully reads a couple of .dat file from the phone, etc. But then it actually goes to write the new .mp3 file, the whole process just hangs until it times out.The ringtone is a little large 150K, but I don't see why that should be a problem - I am using less than 1% of the 2MB if memory that's available.
It looks as though the phone is in some read/only mode. I have been looking through menus for several hours, trying to see if there is some setting on the phone that I need to change, but I can't find it. I poked around with Google and found that some earlier phones have some kind of "Always Data In" setting, but I don't see that on my phone.
About a year ago I purchased a Nokia 6010 (?) and used a prepaid account. A few days ago, I recieved a new SGH-T809 I had ordered from eBay (Unlocked), and used my prepaid SIM card from the nokia. Love the phone, and I love Tmo. It worked as perfectly as I had expected, except for one problem.I tried connecting the phone to my laptop using Bluetooth, but the laptop asked for a security code to the phone. I assume they mean the PIN, but I don't even know if that's linked to the SIM or the handset itself. I went to the security settings of the phone and it also asked me (more directly) for a PIN. I don't remember EVER having a PIN code for anything, and the Samsung doesn't seem to have any listed default codes. Is it listed somewhere on the SIM card maybe? Whatever the 'PIN' is, I REALLY need it!
when i try to conect my one-x to pc via B-T im getting some sort of error about bluetooth peripheral device drivers.when i conect my sensation(also running ICS) doing it exactly the same way it pairs,conects and everythings fine.im hoping there will be some sort of update for the drivers (being the phones only just been released) cause when i checked my pc everything was up to date. ive seen that a couple of people on xda have had same trouble but i thought i'd start looking for answers here first.
Just got the A640 the other day switched from a nextel nokia and downloaded and installed BitPim, pvconv, and drivers but every time i tried to detect the phone with BitPim my computer reboots. I thought maybe there was an issue with the new version of BP so i installed a few older versions form the sourceforge sight and had the same problems with those also. I am running XP. I searched forum before i posted and could not find anything about this issue with BP.
I don't know if anyone is still interested in this phone but I've found a way to use BitPim and the SPH-a640 with OS X. I've successfully been able to download pictures and I'm sure it will work with everything else. It would be great if someone could test it though. OK, here we go.
Download the file located here: http://www.geocities.com/osbornefile...rialdriver.pkg
They're drivers for the data cable.
Restart the computer when asked.
Download and install BitPim for OS X.
Go into preferences in BitPim, select the phone you want, depending on the data you want to transfer. Then select the Com Port, you should choose something like: /dev/cu.usbmodem . It will be one of those. Don't use Automatic.
Transfer to your heart's content (see The Original How to by meddotnet for information on which phone to use for the type of data you want to transfer).
