My question on this handset is, does it use Lightsurf or have a full inbuilt MMS service?

I haven't had a chance to get my hands on one yet, so I'd be interested in knowing if our existing APT TX95/115 cable works with it. If not it might be time for another driver rewrite, or sourcing a new cable.

Anyone had a chance to plug one in yet?

bettyboop_pink: Quote from the Handset brochure: "Now you can capture those special moments with a photo or video clip. The built-in mega-pixel camera includes a flash, auto focus lens..." wouldn't this only make it a 1 mega pixel camera?? I think it is ay!


The term megapixel is easily understood, and often used to refer to cameras in the low one MP range. Look on the phone itself (around the lens) and you will also see 1.3MP

Lightsurf lets me get all my photos and videos from my phone to PC at zero cost.

For that reason alone I think its great. Took a lot of getting used to though.

I prefer my 6255, can save received pics (unlike my TX115c) on my phone and it has bluetooth to transfer them. I just find lightsurf slow. Having MMS built in is a much simpler way of doing things. Just my humble opinion

That only works if you have a bluetooth phone of course.

People who paid $199 to get an 8100 Sanyo when they were on sale can use Lightsurf to acheive the same end result, without having had to buy a mid-high end phone to get Bluetooth.

Lightsurf in my opinion is great (for me), but probably not everyones cup of tea - especially if you actually do a fair bit of direct communicating using MMS. (Its great for taking photos to use later on, or archive)

samsam:are any phone flashs that do please tell me.


The flash on this phone is quite horrible to tell the truth, on the 6255 it is not too bad for night shots. But not good enough for good quailty pics. Same goes for the TX115c. If u really want night pics (at the moment anyway) use a proper camera
