New Phone Fun!

Posted on August 10th, 2005 at 4:27 pm

So I have my new phone now, and its great! The coverage of 3 in my area is fine and I’ve only dropped the signal once, where my previous Orange phone didn’t work either.

6630 Nokia

So far I’ve uploaded a screensaver, Bust-A-Move, Yahtzee, Minesweeper, mp3s, movies and some file utilities. I can now convert any movie formats to the 3gp format the phone uses.

I’ll be adding a utitity called OggPlayer which will plays music in the ogg format, which is half the size of an mp3.

I’ve also downloaded a game called The Journey II which apparently needs you to leave the house to play it, I’ll explain more if I get it to work.

Finally, I need some help choosing my ringtone. Here are a few I’ve made from tracks off CDs. What one should I use?

Presence – Favour Nothing
Krome and Time – Sounds of the Underground
John Arnold – Respectall
Oliver Ho – Sacred Object

  • I’m sad to write this, but you have taken this blog all too far mate…

  • Piss off back to Womad! ;)

    Now be useful and tell me what Ringtone I should have.

    I have to agree with Julian

  • jade says:

    Although the info on swinging was very useful

  • Mariko says:

    I like ‘Presence’ best but I think ‘Krome..’ and ‘Oliver..’ seem yourself….

  • Kerry says:

    ah- that phone.

    i have some stuff i downloaded for my 6600, believe u can even get n-gage games to run on it.

    As for the ring tone – work it out for your bloody self! (from another bolshy submitter!)

  • JJ says:

    Call me old fashioned, but I reckon you can’t go wrong with a traditional “ring ring”!! ;)

    It’s a funny looking phone mate, but I think you’ve made the right move keeping with Nokia! My Motorola v600 looked alright to start off with but it’s actually really crap. Texting is so painful I rarely do it these days.

    I’ve gotta choose a new one this month and I’m going back to Nokia, may also switch to Vodafone too as Orange is crap cross-country on my drive to work!
