  • Where to buy battery in Delhi (India) for this phone?

  • do not play mp3 files in mobile phone.please say how can play mp3 files in this device

  • actually, once you insert your sim, you will get a prompt that your network will be sending the gprs and mms settings... i have never had problems with mms and gprs on this phone :)

  • It may be an ugly phone but in terms of durability and longevity Toshiba has been a name that stands for itself. When you are particular of durability over how flashy it looks... Japan technology will always stand the test of time...some of the best technology would come from Japan and Germany... the rest who outsource their product to China do not come with that much durability despite passing the standards

  • i have required software to connect mobile with pc , i need software to connect mobile phone with pc

  • Based on my experience with this fone, the GPRS and MMS cannot be configured to any of the 3 networks here in the Philippines.

  • hi everyone. anyone of you who happen to have the setting for mms sending for smart philippines? i'd be glad if you could send it to my no. tnx

  • hello everyone, is anybody know that gprs or mms can be activated either in globe or smart network with this phone (803T vodafone)? please give me some ideas if the internet connection can be activated.please give me tips! tnx!

  • thanks for supporting me and the others! Good luck! God bless and more power!

  • hi people im having a problem with my phone i cant transfer music file to frm pc the after i completel paste the song in the memory card after that when i remove frm pc phone show up with an message that file transfer is canecl wht to do plzzz help me out here [email protected]

  • pressing * still does not do model unti is 803T.... cp does not have space......

  • Correction in my previous reply: """Transfer Music or Images""" in place of songs or music

  • You can either use normal USB bluetooth device or USB cable to connect this phone with PC and use it as a modem. Both works fine. Install driver first. Then attatch cable with PC. Now in your phone's menu, go to Settings >>> Connectivity >>> USB >>> Data Transfer. Now your phone acts as a modem. You can't copy songs or music in this mode. Select "Music Transfer" mode to do these. You can't browse in "Music transfer" mode.

  • Most probably you are in T9 input mode. Just press and hold * button for a few seconds to switch to normal input mode. Press 0 for space.

  • i have a problem on this regarding on text messaging..... it has no space..... can anyone help me???

  • i ordered this phone online and its already on its way does anyone know if there's a beatengine thats compatible with windows vista?

  • How can I use this cell phone as computer Modem. What types of Blue Tooth is necessary for this set.

  • For the model Toshiba TS803 you no need use 'Beat Engine' to copy MP3 files in it. But for the model Toshiba 803T you must've to use 'Beat Engine'. To work with 'Beat Engine' just make sure your self phone number stored in your 803t's "my details" in it's contacts is the same as in the number stored in 'beat engine' software.

  • Anyone tried more than 512MB of Mini SD card with it? I need to know... Thanks in advance.

  • English version of "Beat Engine" download link:

  • This mobile's factory default password is "0000". You can change it from menu Settings >> Security Settings >>

  • Those who are having problem while trying to enable Bluetooth, and receiving message like "Unlock your phone before...", just do the following: 1. In your phone menu, go to Setting >> Security Settings >> Phone Lock >> here make sure all the lock options are "off". Now you'll be able to turn on Bluetooth. Thanks.

  • Free Vodafone Toshiba TS803 USB driver download (English version with connectivity software): Link: Easy way to play MP3: 1. Format your SD card first using your Toshiba TS803 2. Do not use �Beat Engine� software to transfer music, because it�ll encrypt your MP3 files and if you change SIM, you will no longer be able to play those songs. Also it'll no longer be in "MP3" format so that you won't be able to play it in another device. 3. Now after connecting USB cable, go to the menu Settings >> Connectivity >> USB >> and here select �Music transfer mode� in your mobile. Now you�ll see a new drive in �My Computer� in your PC. 4. Go to that drive, and go to the folder like �M:\PRIVATE\VODAFONE\My Items\Sounds & Ringtones�. And here is the most important trick� that is DO NOT create any folder under a folder in it. That is you can create a folder named �John Denver� under the folder �Sounds & Ringtones�� but DO NOT create any folder under �John Denver� folder. Only you can put MP3 files under �John Denver� folder. 5. You can create another folder named �George Michel� under �Sounds & Ringtones� folder. Just copy and paste MP3 files in it. Nothing else. And so on. IF YOU PUT ANY MP3 FILES OTHER THAN UNDER THE FOLDER �Sounds & Ringtones�, YOU WON�T BE ABLE TO PLAY IT. This is the trick. Also make sure your mp3 file�s bit stream is not more than 192kbps. Hope this will solve your problem.

  • I need help! A message appears on my screen after i press menu. Its says ( Settings information downloaded from Network. Start retrieval NW information?) When i press YES, it says ( Cannot perform this operation due to network failure.) But my network is fine when i go on the internet. Mine is Japanese firmware. I have unlocked it and am using it in Singapore for quite a while and this message just pops up all of a sudden. What can i do? Please help.

  • Why don't you try Toshiba's website? Or you can check out ebay . Sometimes you can find people selling the cd.

  • from which website can I download the beat engine software?? can anyone help me please?

  • Great things about this phone- camera is great quality. pictures and videos are very good. Mp3 is clear and loud. Message input is easier after getting used to it. -------------- I spent a few hours trying to transfer my mp3 files using beatbox. I transferred all my songs except some. (phone says file can't be played). ANYWAY- before tranferring music files, you install beatbox software. NEXT, you make sure to install all usb drivers using the cd). THEN, from beatbox software, you have to set your mobile number. (this can be changed if you switch usim cards). ALSO set your mobile number in your phone under CONTACTS. ---then connect your phone using the USB. while its connected to the computer, go to SETTINGS on your phone, and then CONNECT(USB). Set it to music transfer. (Dont worry about the offline thing.) Then open beatbox software. You can add all your mp3 files to library. Then, transfer to your phone. WHEN you are done, go to file on beatbox and quit. then disconnect your phone. MP3 files should be able to play. Some files can't play eg: files that have 96kbps can't be played.

  • pls help me...i downloaded already mp3s and then i converted those into .tbd using beat engine box software but still those files could not be played. what can i do so that i can play mp3s in my T803 phone...pls give me advice..thanks!!!

  • I had similar problems with this phone with sending music to it and playing with beat engine, i found out that you need to have your FULL phone number under tool-->settings the full phone number should be country code, area code and phone number took me a few days but after i put in the country code it worked perfectly loving the phone... good luck

  • just got my 803t today it's a cool phone i have to say, it's just that, im a bit confused someone said it's a lot easier to send mp3 through bluetooth adapter than usb, and someone sai that you can play aac files and it's better because all you have to do is put the aac files in a drm folder and it will play, now im reading that you have to use the beat box engine... and so far no one shed a bit of light on this matter... sigh...

  • Don't bother looking for the USB cable. Just get a USB bluetooth adapter on Ebay for 10 bucks. You can xfer all your pics/vids/mp3s from the phone to the pc via the bluetooth. Cheap and easy. USB cable was going for $30-40

  • Hi all, just to let all of u know that this phone can only support mp3 as ringtone only if it is using the Hong Kong Firmware. Whereas if this phone if using the Japan Firmware, it can't support mp3 files as ringtone.

  • This Phone Has Mp3 Ringtone Option Too That Is Mentioned Nowhere On Any Site,Toshiba Should Do Better Marketting

  • Hello could someone please tell me how to put the video files ( 3gp&mp4 ) into this mobile ? I used the beat engine but it failed to add the files to the library .

  • If you have TS803 (and not 803T) you don't need the beat engine. It is a mass storage. For live pics of the phone :

  • 10q andrew, ur method really worked for me. i owe u one man

  • If you want mp3s to work on your 803T you need to have the following: 1. mp3 must be in 128kbps 2. The phone number on beat engine must match the phone number in your phone details. (My Details is in Phonebook) 3. Use the Beat Engine program to transfer over your to phone. So if your phone number says 19051234567 then in beat engine it must state 19051234567. Still got problems? email me at [email protected] PLEASE TRY my method first before emailing.

  • I wante know this model(TS803)can read a mp3 ?? if yes , How?

  • hey, I couldn't play mp3 music n' set it as ringtone. Also the contact list doesn't appear in alphabetical order and i couldn't use the predictive texts while typing and it doesn't display the operator's name eventhough the operator name display is turned on. Plz help out.

  • great mp3 phone. LOUD speakers plus you can use your own headphones. the only downside: - you need to use Beabox software to import mp3s and cant just copy songs to the folder-no such soft for Macs. - NO PREDICTIVE Text!!! this is VERY annoying. I believe this is cuz my phone is japanese. otherwise a very cool looking phone.

  • i've been using this phone for four month now. 1) the phone is perfect for me, mp3 is easy to use, just don't connect that with the usb to transfer songs. i put my minisd card into my computer to transfer songs. 2) minisd card is up to 1gb, not 2gb 3) one big issues, when connected bluetooth headset with the phone. when people call, it will have no ringtone. you have to wear your bluetooth headset all the times.

  • my vodafone 803t doesn't work the mp3 i tried a lot to work the mp3 but it doesn't work i follow the intstruction on the cd. i used the beat engine to transfer the mp3 from PC but after that the mp3 became .tbd what can i do guys? any idea about this problem... thanks...

  • tommy... i have this fone too... the trick is, load up beat box engine, go into tools, then settings, put in ur phone number, remember to include the 1, then drag and drop into the first window, then transfer with the middle button... also, nothing over 192 kbs bit rate will work..hope that helps

  • 01.May I use mp3 as ringtone ? 02.Photocall option is this phone ? 03.Is there any video player ? 04.May i use mini sd card upto 1 or 2 gb ? Please inform me as soon as posible

  • does anyone know if this can stream music over bluetooth? In other word does it have a a2dp profile?

  • i brought this phone the other day and i was trying to put mp3 in the memory card and i also tried to use the cd rom that came with it but neither of them worked. could someone tell me the process of moving mp3 files from the pc to the mini sd and mp3 from the pc using the software provided which is called beat engine thanks!

  • I have a SanDisk, 128 mb, but that doesn't matter, because it won't play files from its memory either. Maybe it only plays original mp3's or something, and not pirated music.

  • rizla : wat u mean by wat kind of files ? do u mean music files or tx files ? n70 is a smartfone , it allows u 2 add n remove software in ur fone , but 803 has better music n camera functions. if u want 2 buy a nokia smartfone , go 4 n80 or wait a little longer until n73 n n93 release

  • what kind of files can recognise this phone?what is beter nokia n70 or ts803?

  • erm van helsing. wat kind of miniSD a u using, brand n size ? cos i hav no problem playing mp3 files from card

  • Great phone, video file can use for ringing, great video recording, super mp3, bluetooth, irda, great photos, I am speachless.

  • I didn't try to use the mp3 player at first, but when i did, i couldn't. It doesn't see the mp3s that I put on the card, only very few, which can't be played. Does anyone know why? Does it have a limitation of some sorth? Do the mp3s have to be original or something in order for it to see and play them?

  • 2 a2yd : sorry i shud make the point dat 902t n ts921 is a lil bit different cos the japanese version doesnt support mp3 playback .only the 903t or newer does . n no1 had yet solved dis problem

  • I have a question I'm on a 902t and I'm using the beat engine software. For some reason it won't transfer, do you have to use a miniSD card, because I"m on a standerd SD. Any help be appricated

  • mp3 ringtone is possible , but u wil need 2 get it unlocked 1st . orelse the easy way is 2 convert mp3 in2 mmf format , which is simple 2 do . some ppl think the fonebk is a mess jus cos they arent used 2 the japanese style , but myself i was a nokia user , at the beginning it was like hell, but quickly got used 2 it :)

  • it does not play mp3 ringtones, unless you record the song with the microfone in the phone.... no autofocus and phone book is a mess in no alphabetical order

  • van helsing ... altho the ts921 has got AF on the cam but its only 1.92 mpix compare wit 2.26mpix on 803, also ts921 doesnt allow u 2 send any files via bluetooth ... btw there's a newer version of ts921 in japan which is call v903t , same spec as ts921 but v903t allow bluetooth transfering those who can read japanese can check out dis

  • I've come back with some details about the camera. In sunlight, pictures taken to objects not too far (a few meters) are very clear, as if it would have autofocus. Objects that are far, like buildings or threes are not so clear, especialy if they don't have direct sunlight. Indoors or in the night, pictures are bad. Colours are great, "CCD power" ! The settings available in the menu are great, a lot of small details that together make up quality ( operator name on the screen *yes *no, folder password, different led colours for different warnings, etc.). And the design of the phone is stylish, it looks much better in reality than in the pictures, especialy when it is open, deppending of it's colour. On the whole, a great phone, a great brand. To those of you who want picture quality i suggest you buy TS 921 model, for it's autofocus.

  • Yes, that's true, it doesn't have autofocus. The camera isn't better, it's worse than k750's. The other functions are great, but the camera is no good.

  • just wanna make the point dat de cam of dis fone doesnt hav auto-focus ... but the cam is CCD so its better than alot other cam fone already as most brands like SE or nokia are sticking wit CMOS sensor

  • Does this phone play mp3 ringtones, have t9, and is the phonebook in alphabetical order?

  • is selling this phone(unlocked) for $279. It's really a great deal. if i didnt buy the samsung D600 2 months ago, i would definitly buy this one. Besides, you can trust I bought D600 from them, it took less than 72 hrs to arrive(about $30 for shipping).

  • to Danny, i believe this phone does use mp3 ringtones. The vodafone ireland site says it takes real tones so looks like it does have them.

  • Vodafone Ireland are selling this phone �299 for an upgrade or �399 pay as you go. I like everything about this phone. I am due an upgrade in a couple of weeks and it is between this one and the Motorola V3x. I think i will have to get the Motorola as it is half the price and lighter.

  • I WANT ONE !!!!!!!!!!!! Hey plzzzzzzzz review this phone.....

  • Can this phone play video files from your computer, like a video ipod?

  • can this phone play mp3 ringtones?

  • everything about this phone is GREAT!!!!
