I have been using myPhone B31 for a month now. I could say it is pretty handy and portable. For me, it is just the phone i needed. It has MP3/MP4 for my song lists and an FM tuner so i could tune in to “The Morning Rush” everyday. It has a VGA Camera so i could strike a pose every now and then.
I have tried other mobiles before and here some of the features that I think the phone is lacking.
1. No Special Characters in SMS Messaging. You can type ñ, Ü and others.
2. Can’t Send-A-Load. For Globe users like me, i am not able to send a load using the phone. It cannot send a message to the send-a-load number format which is “29158889933” unlike in my Nokia phone which is no problem at all.
3. Shortcut Keys. You can’t customize the shortcut keys for your menu.
4. WAP/GPRS connection problem. I haven’t brought my phone to a service center to check my WAP connection. WAP/GPRS settings is not yet downloadable for this phone. It already has a default settings but is not working.
5. A No-no for “Photoholic” person. The phone only has 0.3 Megapixel VGA Camera and an output resolution of a maximum of 640×320(?). Pretty low if want to have sleek shots. Also, when you check the manual about the camera usage, there is an error. The manual says there is a setting of up to 1230xsomething but it is only 640×320(?).
6. Can’t add events to calendar. It is just a plain calendar. Period.
So far, those are the drawbacks i experienced from the phone. I’ll add up others or create a new post for new sets that i found.
