wap??


no i dont thinks its that, its werid. nothing on the booklet.

If you mean in the top row of the menu - then it's to connect to the internet. If you mean on the default 'front page' screen and it's next to the signal bar - it's the 3G symbol.

Here's a link to the full manual - the one you don't get with the phone:

hope this helps

Update: just got mine to show it - it appears when I send a photo message - if yours is on all the time, do you have your phone constantly connected to the internet?

the globe appears when there is an active connection to the internet, via wap or otherwise.

go onto planet 3.

then select My3.

then select "check my usage"

then it will tell you the mins left, texts left, mms left and DOWNLOADS LEFT.

I usually use it to buy games.

I'm on o2, but try going into
Settings
connectivity
data communication
close connection

don't even know if you've the same menus though, so this is a stab in the dark!

how long does your battery last? on average.

mine lasts about 4 days without charge and moderate use (mainly texting).

although nowadays my charger is near my bedside so i just connect it at night if its low as i use it as an alarm as well.

do you too have a K800i mate, mines already donw 50% and been 1day, although I did get the phone today and have been using it quite a bit.

yes i too have a k800i.

its probably because you have just got the phone and the battery is new. Let the battery go down to nearly zero and then fully charge it.

Every charge will increase its efficiency until it performs at optimal level. usually after 2-3 charges.

i think it maybe explained somewhere in the manual? not too sure.


EDIT: see page 88 of the pdf manual that has been posted on this thread. it explains the efficiency thing.

yeah saw that eariler when you mentioned it, cheers

To switch off the net...

Mines an o2 so may be different but anyway...

Where the 'joystick' is, there are the four main buttons (menu, cancel, back etc) Two button on the left and two to the right, in between each of those two sets is a very small button

My left one is for launching/closing the net, and my right button brings up the running applications menu

See if yours is the same
