MyPhone B31 Review

Posted on Updated on


My previous post about buying myPhone B31 have gathered a lots of readers and some have asked questions about my new myPhone.

So today, I decided to give a short feedback about myPhone B31.

  1. Features. FM Tuner, VGA Camera, MP3/MP4
  2. Applications. Calculator, Notepad, Alarm Clock, Calendar, Games, EBook, Recorder
  3. Memory. Can be expandable memory card of up to 2Gb microSD. microSD card is not included when you buy one.
  4. Size. The phone is slim, half  of a peso coin to be exact, and 4-inches in length.
  5. WAP. It is already WAP enabled but I haven’t tried to access the Internet. There is a default setting for the WAP but it can’t connect me to the Internet. So before you buy, check the WAP setting if it is working which is a step that I missed.
  6. Messaging. Both SMS and MMS.
  7. Connectivity. GSM and GPRS.
  8. Camera. 0.3 MB VGA
  9. USB. Yes, it is USB-enabled. Just install the cellphone software first.
  10. Themes. No themes available.
  11. Wallpaper. There are default wallpaper but you could have some downloaded using your USB cable. Size is 128x160px
  12. Sound. Nice, audible sound.
  13. Accessories. Earphone, USB cable, charger
  14. Battery. It last 4 hours while using the radio, 48hours for standby mode and 3 hours for talk-time.
  15. Network. As of now, myPhone is not yet openline. It only works under Globe network.
  16. Service and Warranty. 1-year service warranty and 1-week replacement.
  17. Technical Support. You can have your myPhone checked to the nearest Globe center nationwide.

For me it is a nice buy in very affordable price.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

    hi chenny,

    well, it is a package. once you buy the phone, they’ll give you the the speaker too. the speaker box is nice, you could use your iphone and ipod with it. it is also an FM tuner.

    @jhoy imperial,
    – sa cdr king, less than P400 ang 2Gb mem card.
    – internal mem is 300Mb? or is it only 30Mb?

    @sarah,

    one reader said na hindi kasama yung speaker so baka tapos na yung promo. im just not sure.

    January 18, 2009 at 9:52 PM

    @xbieng03,

    about games di ko alam kung paano mag-install pero sa songs, sa memory card ko na lang sinave.

    jhOy imPeRiaL responded:
    January 18, 2009 at 9:53 PM

    @seph,

    i think 30 mb lang yung internal memory nya.

    January 20, 2009 at 10:36 PM

    ahhmm,, jhoy.. sa tingin may promo pa? gano ang maximun capacity ng memory card na pede sa kanya? na avail mo ung free memory card.. kasi ung phone ko may free memory sya W350i 9k bili ko pero 512mb lang sya,. nami2nimize ba yung music player nya?

    ~ariane~

    jhOy imPeRiaL responded:
    January 21, 2009 at 7:22 AM

    hi ariane,

    sa tingin ko hindi na. dami na kasi nagsabi na hindi daw nila nakuha yung mga items na kasama sa promo. try mo na sa mismong globe outlet mag-inquire kasi sa kanila yung promo eh.
    2Gb yung maximum na memory na pwede mong ilagay. yes, nami-minimize yung music player.

    ^_^

    @xbieng03
    yup, pag nasave mo na sa memory card, accessible na siya sa media player nya(up arrow)
    microSD yung memory card, 2gig yung maximum na kaya ng phone.
    about sa phonebook, pede mo siyang iset sa settings.

    thanks,
