    For some reason whenever someone calls me, they hear a modem-like "beep" tone when I pick up. It's very loud and annoying. Any ideas how to fix this?

    FAQ:

    Please note: This FAQ is created solely for reference and are subjected to changes and mistakes. If you find a mistake in this guide kindly reference where the mistake is and what the correction should be.

    Key Combo: Menu -> 2 -> 3

    What is melody linkage?
    Melody linkage means the phone will light up or vibrate based on the melody being played (your ring tone) depending on what you are currently trying to set.

    What is quick silent and how do I use it?
    Quick silent is a feature where it will stop your phone from 1)ringing 2)vibrating. This is not affected by the fact that manner mode is active or not. To activate quick silent, press the up arrow key on the side of your phone. You can also set quick silent to activate when you flip open your phone (see Incoming call options).

    How do I open up my phone book during a call?
    I've been stuck in 2 situations now where I want to load up my phone book during a call but not knowing the steps to approach this. Lucky you, the instructions below will teach you how to do just that.

    During a call, press multi -> menu or the circle button -> down (square pad) -> circle button

    How do I turn on/off speaker phone?
    During a call, press the "send" button (as if making a call). You should see a speaker icon on your screen. To turn off, press the send button again.

    How to setup my clock manually?
    Key Combos: Menu -> Settings -> Clock -> 1 -> 2

    What is summer time?
    Summer time is basically the Japanese way of saying Daylight Savings Time. This only affects countries that are affected by DST changes (eg: Canada, US maybe?)

    How do I make the clock only show my current time (without Japan time)?

    This has been a real mystery for a while to Docomo users, but it's no longer a secret! The key to make Japan time disappear is to make it believe that you're in Japan! All you have to do is set the clock manually (see above) but set your time zone to Japan (+9 GMT) and vola! Japan time gone.

    Illumination
    Key combo: Menu -> Settings -> 3

    What is Illumination?
    Defines the way your P905i will light up during different situations (eg: charging battery, on a voice call, missed a call, receiving a call, making a call.etc)

    How do I set Illumination Color and Pattern?
    Key combo: Menu -> Settings -> 3 -> 2

    Depending on whether you are setting color or pattern you will choose the corresponding option at that screen.

    Setting color:
    You would choose Phone or MessageR since you can't do anything else anyways. That will dictate how the color and style of your circle light on the cover of your phone will light up.

    Setting Pattern:
    Standard - Lights will blink by the way the lighting is set via Setting color (see above)

    Melody Linkage - Follows the rhythm of your current ringtone or music played upon triggering an event.

    Key Combo: Menu -> Settings -> 5

    What is the default security code?
    If you have never touched the security code and it suddenly asks you, just enter "0000". That is your default security code.

    How do I change security code?
    Key Combo: Menu -> Settings -> 5 -> 0

    Enter your current security code. You will be prompted with a new screen asking for a new security code. Press "yes" after to confirm your new code.

    What does Lock All do and how do I turn it on?
    It locks EVERYTHING (like it says)! This prevents unauthorized use of your phone until you enter the correct security code.

    Activate lock all: Key combo: Menu -> Setting -> 5 -> 2
    punch in your security code and the lock will begin

    How do I turn off All Lock?
    just type in your security code and push the middle circle button on your phone.

    What is reconnect signal and how do I use it?
    Key combo : Menu -> Settings -> 9 -> 3 -> 6 -> x [x: 1-off, 2-high tone, 3-low tone]

    Network settings
    Key Combo: Menu -> right (on square pad) -> 3

    What are prefix numbers and how can I make use of it?
    Prefix numbers basically are user defined set of numbers which are mainly used to assist you with dialing long distance calls. You can store up to 7 prefix numbers. The use to this is the fact that you can tag on those prefix numbers to any contact you wish to add to. This is convenient so you won't have to literally enter those numbers for all of your friends in another country.

    Where can I set/edit my prefix numbers?
    Key Combo: Menu -> right (on square pad) -> 3 -> 1
    Select an empty slot or one that wish to replace. and press the mail button

    Key Combo: Menu -> right (on square pad) -> 3 -> 2 -> 4 -> x [x: 1- Auto, 2- 3G only, 3- GSM/GPRS] (Please note: since some sims do not work with 3G yet and we know GPRS is not available to us, the only way to get GSM only is via Auto mode)

    Key Combo: Menu -> right (on square pad) -> 3 -> 2 -> 3 -> 1 -> x [x: 1-On, 2-Off]

    Key combo: Menu -> Phonebook -> 3 (enter your security code on prompt)-> 1 -> 1 -> 1

      phone -> sim method :
      Key combo: Menu -> Phonebook -> 3 (enter your security code on prompt)-> 2 -> 1 -> 1

    All you have to do is press left (square button) -> scroll down to the caller you wish to add -> press i-mode button -> 8 -> 1 -> x [x: 1- New contact, 2- Existing contact]

    Method 2:

    What is group setting and how do I make use of it?
    If you're getting tired of typing in letters to do a name search, simply can't remember all the memory numbers/mail address/reading of your friends, then groups will bring a relief to your frustration. Groups allows you to add all your friends to a specific group that you design. You can categorize them anyway you want making it really easy for you to search by group and scroll down only a few times to reach the contact that you will always need to get in touch with. There are 19 groups available for you to set so there's plenty of room.

    To set your phonebook to group search mode, see above ("what if I want to search by memory, Reading..." )

    How do I customize group settings?

    Key combo: menu -> phonebook -> 7
    scroll down to the group you wish to modify and press
    circle button (on square pad)

    Perform as you would under How do I edit my contact's info -> scroll down to "GR" -> circle button (square pad) -> scroll down to the group you wish to add the contact to -> circle button (square pad)

    voice mail is a bit tricky. It should be the same for P905i but I'm not sure how it works because it might be linked to Docomo. You might not be able to use the service.

    Yes. All you have to do is set "Reading" for each contact. It will sort what you enter via Reading alpha order.

    "Reading" is a special feature tailored for Jap Phones. If you just import contacts via UIM , you cannot set reading because our UIMs do not support this feature. You can either 1) copy each UIM contact into the phone 2)Manually add each contact again into the phone book.

    The choice is yours. Once it's in your phone, you will be able to set reading.
