so i understand the the data cable thing, am halfway thru manually transferring my contacts, (1 by 1..couldn'rt wait forever to find a way, cuz too much of an "issue" not knowing who's calling [esp] customers), but as i mentioned, it would still be interesting to know if in can be done, as in my partic case, and esp for "others benefit" (to get such a real workable solution posted here, as i have little doubt that "they will come...from elsewhere...enticed by the phone & the "deal", and the encouragement of this thread!...and with their big contact lists). i'll check that jcontacts site & report if i find it useful in my type of contacts transfer issue, thanks. i have no interest in the games. as to movies, i got the list of all those already converted movies, as soon as it was posted here & i downed alice in wonderland. i watched it. that was a very weird experience, because it was actually an enjoyable thing. i had not watched any movies anywhere, for some time. i just was facinated to see if i could actually get this to work & see a movie. i figured even if i could, still it would be no more than a silly novelty. i was wrong. for 1 thing, the sound that was delivered via my cheap set of headphone of the soundtrack...was jawdropping...i still cannot quite understand how it was possible to hear what i heard come out of this phone & that crap headset. it sounded like being in the theatre, period. check out that soundtrack on headphones. as to the picture quality & smoothness, it was perfect. of course it was fullscreen via the blueftp & there is less difference than some may think, between a 3" screen a few inches from your eyes, vs a big movie screen many feet away. i didn't mean to, or expect to or think i would be able to, but i watched the entire movie straight thru. too freakin cool! and the entire movie didn't even take 1 notch off the battery meter. i love it!
as to ringtones, i'm only into making my own from live concert & only used a couple on the old phone. i haven't gotten to the task yet, but i've seen enough peeps say it can be done, that i'm sure it'll be an easy thing to do.
as i say, i have the exported contact list from my old phone. i imported that list (2 diff file types) sucessfully into the apps folder & blueftp lists everything...but getting the list imported into the contacts of the rt is another story. if jcontacts does so, big find! questions would be: can jcontacts integrate w/the list i (or anyone else) already has (from other software pgms) or just have to redo it from scratch via jcontacts...and...if it can then properly place the contacts in this phone (just as you do manually) and in most cases, i dare say that would be a GREAT FIND & A GREAT TOOL for others, so let's get this figured out & posted for sure. the way i see it, it is an important necessity for those drawn to vmrt. and this thread is "the other half" ..of what is so great about the vmrt. if we help it (vmrt) to be a major success, by way of this thread, then i'm thinking that by the time it is cracked to "tethereens", vm will not care too much, as there'll be so many customers.Jcontacts backup is a good program that works for transfering to your touch as long as you can use it on the other phone. It exports fine but when you import it says it fails but if you check your contacts they'll be on there.
yes, the "play in background" feature is a BIGGY! i remember hearing a million ppl clamoring for such an abilty to have...but then, when handed to them on a free silver platter, working perfectly in that regard, audio & video, hardly a peep from anyone. ??? as to the "playlists": i've never been much into that aspect, but i assume you mean when you have a bunch of tunes & you want to queue them up in a playlist, to play them all & in the order you wish? a couple days ago, i was looking to do that. i had individually copied all the tunes from an album, that i had from a long time ago, in their individual tracks that i had stuffed into a folder on my pc. once on the phone, they would play just fine, but only 1 at a time. i fiddled. i'm not sure how i did it & will probably have to figure it out again, a couple of times, but i think i used blueftp & found a playlist function & i tried to check off all the tunes in the correct order as found on the album. i hit play, crossed my fingers, hopped on my bike for an excercise ride & the entire album played perfectly. this must be what you mean? i was real happy. i had a hard time not "rockin out" off the bike. the album is one of the finest, little known albums of all time. 40 yrs old now. steve miller band # 5.The media player thing is very sketchy. I've really grown to love the blue ftp for the same reason as you. The biggest thing I look for in a media player is playing in the back ground and playlists. Give me those 2 things and I'm a happy camper. I haven't ventured into the media player much more since the last one I tried bricked my phone (look it up 30 or 40 pages ago). Well I was able to fix it though thanks some skilled advice of people on here.
*correction: it was not blueftp that afforded me the playlist. in fact, as i said above, i had to go back & figure out how i did it the other day (made a playlist, then played it) & when i went to blueftp, i could not find any playlist capability there (?), but when i went to the native media player, there was the playlist that i created the other day, all ready to play (which i did again). so now i would like to know if there's a way to get the playlist to play via blueftp, so that it can play it in the background.
i don't know what i've done wrong or missed doing on this. i have not yet tried getting into the making of the jad files, but in this case, there was a link posted here early on, for both the jar & jad & i got it installed on the phone but i have no clue if i did it right or put it in the right place. i believe i put it in the apps folder. i believe both files show up there (w/a little "disc" icon next to ea file) using blueftp, but if i click on 1 (i think the jad?), it offers to install, but upon trying, i get the "couldn't install" error. i would like to overcome that & get as far as you hav so i can try & see if it has the same problem playing in my phone & w/my signal, as it does w/you. that would be to rule in/out network/signal strength issues, as opposed to an intrinsic issue with iradio/vmrt. that way, we will know what direction to take towards a working radio function. even if it were limited to 5 or 10 minute radio "podcast's", so to speak, that would be ok (if the blockage is a bandwidth issue?) so 1st i need to know what i did wrong compared to your install. please tell me if what i described i did sounds wrong.The Iradio works but it is to slow or the vm network is to slow. It just sits and buffers, then you here the station for a second or two, then it buffers again. I would love to have a web radio app that works. The working jad and jar files for iradeo are on vmtouch.com.
