    marketing in north america is a whole different beast, many people in north america like the slim Razrs and krzrs. Most people are happy with text and voice calls with a basic fixed focus 2.0MP camera. Its just the immense trouble it takes to get a phone like that to compete with Razrs and Shines and chocolates. Unlike N.America Asia can be easily manipulated to get other phones, and europeans are more inclined to better phones. Maybe a more ported version of a softbank phone with DVB and mp3 might work in europe?

    For any company its a huge task for marketing, unlike Japan they don't really have their carrier's support to brag about these phones. Teh individual brand will have to the bulk of advertisement unless a carrier sees it viable to throw money marketing the phone like an iphone

    922sh

    Hello all.
    I returned from a month at my girlfriend in Kyoto and I had the chance to bring with me a Sharp 922SH through it.
    I used it for a month without any problem there, and I made my USIM when I closed my account (well on behalf of my girlfriend).
    Back in France I tried to use my Keitai with a Hypersim and "USIM MEP" appears when I turn on my phone ....
    Could someone help?

    riel's edit: English only forum. This time I'll translate this roughly using my meager French knowledge from way back, but next time run it through a translator first.

    quelqu'un pourrait m'aider a comprendre?
    check to make sure your phone isn't in offline mode,
    last time i had the 'USIM MEP' msg was when i got off the plane and forgot to turn off offline mode.

    Just my 2¢..

    I don't see Japanese companies adding DVB compatibility to be totally honest... Though IF Japan was to manufacture and distribute it's hardware to the west, it won't be a Keitai as you know it... I'd imagine it'll only be a look-a-like minus all the local Japanese (often nextwork required) only features that won't and wouldn't work outside of Japan. Chances are.. you'll probably get a better battery life! Mine always seems to die before the day's out.

    iPhone's ain't popular here (Japan), others might wish to believe otherwise simply because they lack network features. For people who'd like an alternative to the ever popular keitai, it's a good option.

    Unhappy Hi

    3) What to do when travelling in areas with poor reception

    How to "break-in" your new Japanese phone + SIM hack

    When you first receive your SIM hack, attach it to your SIM card and place it into your NON-Japanese phone. Use it for two to three days, and make / receive calls occasionally, as well as text messages.

    After two to three days, place the SIM + SIM hack into your new Japanese phone and use it normally.

    This step will help your SIM hack work properly with your new phone. Your Japanese phone + SIM hack is now considered "broken-in".


    How to "revive" or do "CPR" to your phone if it loses the signal and fails to reconnect

    1) If your Japanese phone loses the signal and does not reconnect, then take the SIM + SIM hack out, and place it inside your non-Japanese phone.
    2) If your phone is able to get a signal, make a call but it doesn't matter how long you talk for. Just as long as it rings on the other end of the line. If your phone does NOT get a signal, that means you are in an area with poor reception, and this solution will not help.
    4) Take SIM + SIM hack and put it back into your Japanese phone.
    5) Your signal should be "revived".


    What to do when travelling in areas with poor reception

    1) Find the "Self Mode" function under Settings, and turn it ON as soon as you lose signal, or am about to.
    2) Self Mode is identical to Airplane Mode found in most phones. Connections to and from your phone are disabled.
    3) When you leave the area with poor reception, turn Self mode OFF. After a few minutes, your phone will be able to regain its signal.
    4) If your phone fails to reconnect, perform "CPR."

    Through testing with my PSS-SIM and SH905i, I have found that you need approximately 30 minutes of signal before turning on Self Mode for this to work. I kept my phone on for the whole night, then turned on Self Mode for 3 hours in the office. I then went out for lunch, and turned off Self Mode for 15 minutes. Made a call and sent a text message during that period. Turned Self Mode back on for 4 hours. When I left the office, I turned off Self Mode but was unable to pick up a signal.

    Different SIM hacks might yield different results.

    ---
    I will be expanding and updating this Guide that is geared towards new users. If you have any ideas or material that I could use here, I will add or link it and give you credit. I need material that will help new users in general, and not for specific phones though.

    Find a keitai that offers a CCD Camera and you'll be set. I hope you have a great big sack of money for it though.

    It's all good (^_^)

    Huge sac of money, I mean HUGE enough for a phone thats not even out. COUGH SH907i (5.82mm f2.8 - 28mm WIDe + LED flash)! Or just go for a so905iCS (3X optical zoom + LED flash) or the softbank 920SC (3x optical zoom + xenon flash)

    Better yet.... forget the sack of money. Just a handful of rough diamonds or a giant hunk of a blood diamond and you can probably have every color of that phone

    SIM HACK is also Known as Hypersim*
    its a Chip that makes your Keitai*(Jap Phone) believe that you're Using a Japanese USIM* and Unlocks its media and phone function for use out of Japan~ using your Non-Japanese SimCard.

    Correct me if im wrong
