It's $15 if you use Buy Now. Otherwise who knows how much it can end up costing?


I think SkinIt is not charging for shipping. It's good quality (we have a review). also, CGA applies, while Trademe purchases are "caveat emptor".

ok just wondering, i've got the 8200 but it can only store 26 or so pictures 'in camera', my friends one can store 54 and they had 52 stored in there.
We tried to figure out how i could get this on my phone but couldn't find out how.

does anyone know?

Cheers.

Check quality settings, yours might be on high Image size (yours might be 640 x 480, their may be 320 x 240) and make sure other applications aren't using the memory up.. Also check what pictures they are taking, thay might be talking pics of simple single coloured or black items or even in the dark and yours may be more complicated things with lots of colours and objects.

Remember you can always store some in the "online gallery" or MMS them to your email address. You should be able to DataCable them to your PC too,

snowboard_freak: are all bitpim data cables around $30?

Bitpim is a software package that is freely available. You need to buy a cable from a hardware vendor (try trademe for cheap ones with little support or APT for locally supported cables)

The 7500, weird choice, If only it had external memory and the screen was bigger (it's smaller than the 7400 even though the casing could take a larger one!)! The Sanyo 9000's seem all the rage in the office though the two new Samsungs (a920 and raz'r) are catching on.. I just smashed my second harrier so i'll be handset hunting this week.

Yeah... I can see why you'd think it was an odd choice... but, I get to know a huge amount about phones... lots n lots... from a high level here are the things I like about the 75

Ruggedized (ok, kinda... my x girlfriends baby managed to chew it up a bit, but it survived much better than any other phone I've used- any network, technology, marketing malarkey), it's solid

It has (probably most importantly) the best rf of *any* cellular device I have used. Not a light comment considering I must be in the hundreds by now. Voice is still the most important thing right?

UI leaves the competition behind. I used to be one of those people that thought Nokia was well dope. Took me a day or two to but once you get your head around it you work out Nokia etc are catering to a market that has removed the phone jack from the wall and stopped there. Nokia is like Sanyo with a smack habit...

EVDO- wouldn't bother with GSM, GPRS, WCDMA... too slow... sure I can wait a couple more minutes for News, Weather etc, but why would I?

Music Downloads... not likely to be downloading more than 70 tunes OTA anyway... and I can load up my own tunes anyway.

H264 video... not many people know it, but Telecom NZ first to deliver h.264 to a mobile device and this was it... killa bees on a swarm kiddies

The cam is dope! Sure it's 1.3 mega pixel... check the quality though... mega pixels are for people that shop at Harvey Normans after they get a flyer in the mail that tells them to... it's like buying a PC cos it's got x GHz... or a TV cos it HD ready ;-)

And the old form factor balance... it's sweet as on Friday night out n about... sweet as in the office, wu tang every where...

Felix 5ive

ps you need to know what I mean by killa / wu / d (no it's not a *rap* thing) that might be why you don't get it

Just wondering why does the Sanyo 8200 delete MMS messages from the 'picture msg inbox'? I used to have about 12 MMS messages in my inbox and now only have 4...
