hi guys,

Well to cut this so brief... today i tried to edit a 3gp video and the phone lagged and froze for literally half an hour while trying to process my edited movie, i got fed up and turned the handset off and then on again, This cant be right, all my applications were closed, i have a good amount of free handset memory. the only thing i can think of is my log records which hasnt been deleted. Would this be a cause?

Also in my main profile and on line 1 my ringtone is set as an mp3 i have, but when my phone rings it will sometimes ring as standard nokia tone, once it starts ringing the tone which is not selected i turn my phone off and then on again and it solves the problem......untill the next time......And about the ringtone patch, ive had that since ive had the phone?

Has anyone using an n70 found any problem, or does anyone know what is the problem with my phone.

Cheers guys

I sincerely had to think when reading your post about the feasability of using a mobile phone with its relatively slow CPU to edit a movie. This kind of task is more suitable for desktop or some more power laptop computers.

Intel and AMD are still working on launching specially optimised CPUs for multimedia, how a mobile phone running on a 200MHz CPU would do a good job?

I know it doesn't solve your problem, but perhaps it explains it?

hey,

Thanks for the reply. i know phones dont have a good fast processor at all but.................. talking to another guy who has the same handset, his phone does the process of editting movies on his phone in just a few minutes. his was an import, mine is bought from vodafone, also the fact with the ringtones hasnt impressed me. ive never had to much of a problem with nokia and ive heard such good feedback about the n70 handset, i got mine the day it was released on vf and thought it was amazing, im starting to doubt it now, still i will continue to use it and will just wait until the next fault, other then that i guess the phone doesnt do to badly, it can sms and call and the cameras not to bad, thats positivity :)

Cheers

Well, in this case, if there's a benchmark and it seems to work well, then certainly something could be wrong. Since they have different firmware versions this could be a factor...

Hey,

Yeh firmware could definitely be the problem. check that you guys have similar firmware versions. Usually the only difference between VF firmware and standard firmware is the theme and a few settings different.

I've also heard that if you have a bigger memory card in your phone that can affect the performance/slow it down somewhat. I dont know if this is true or not but that could also be a factor.

Cheers,

hey sinn,

Cheers for that, i am running a 256mb card and i know other people who have this and it seems fine, have checked firmware with others and it seems to be up to date, so it has me baffled :S

You can grab Devman from www.mikeullrich.com    This will help you determine whether you have any free memory issues.

From what I've been reading on the N70, if you are using a ringtone file that is large the phone needs to load the file into memory prior to you hearing it play as the ring. While the phone is loading the file it will play the Nokia default ringtone until loaded, then you'll hear your custom ringtone.

Hope this helps.
