    Talking The Official 8915 Info Thread (Snapper)

    Ok, what do we know so far?

    http://www.virginmobileusa.com/catal...o?skuId=VM8915

    Yeah, that's what most of us know, but there's more.

    Audiovox doesn't seem to have the phone listed on their site yet. It would be likely be CDM8915VM if it were there. Their online catalog doesn't include the model number in the url, so it may be there, or it might not be.

    I thought about looking on Curitels site, and found three suspects, one of which is obviously the 8910:

    http://www.curitel.com/english/product/cdma/TX-115C.asp

    An interesting sidenote: the FCC ID of the 8910 includes "TX-110C", yet the TX-110C would seem to be the 8610 (It has no camera).

    http://www.curitel.com/english/product/cdma/TX-110C.asp

    But I digress, we're interested in the Snapper here.

    So, looking at the other Curitel candidates, I think that by process of elimination, the Snapper is the following phone:

    http://www.curitel.com/english/product/cdma/CX-880C.asp

    The other remaining candidate would be this CDMA 450Mhz phone:

    http://www.curitel.com/english/produ...50/HX-550C.asp

    It's a safe bet it's the CX-880C, but that didn't get me any FCC ID or confirmation that it's the OEM Snapper, so I did a general Hyundai Curitel search on the FCC site, and guess what.....I found it, and a Verizon model too.

    The Snapper:



    Silver too....I bet that will be on Virgin's site, while the blue one is in stores.

    Verizon 8915:



    https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws...c_id=PP4TX-215

    I also ran across this phoneareana page which has more Verizon 8915 photos:

    http://phonearena.com/htmls/UTStarco...ne-p_1211.html

    Yeah, it's not like it blatantly says that the Snapper is louder than the Flasher (Actually, I didn't go through all the test reports yet!), but it's a good start to a thread.

    Curitel has it on their site now (Not sure how long), and it's not the 880C...

    It's the PN-215: http://www.curitel.com/english/product/cdma/PN-215.asp

    I have it

    I just got the CDM8915VM about 2 weeks ago. It's a good phone. and the ringtones are louder then the 8910, alot of people were asking on oter forums.
    I have a cable for it and have been messing around with bitpm.

    This is my first time with a cable and changing ringtones and wallpaper. I'm not sure what I'm doing because the file system is different from the 8910, but not too much. I can replace ringtones, but I don't know how to update the name the phone displays. And I would realy like to add more rings to the phone but don't know how to.

    If anyone else has this phone or any info pleasw post. Oh becarefull entering codes into the phone. I found one that was for battery setup or info and the phone froze up. It would just cycle the VM power up screen. Had to return it, Thank you Best buy...

    You say it's different. Can you post a screenshot of the file system tree fully expanded?

    Cable - Pictures - anything else

    I just got this phone. Can anyone tell me a way to download pictures to a computer? I know I will need to get a cable, Where can I get it?
    will it be possible to download/Upload other things - addressbook, ringtones ect?
    What software is needed?

    What else can be done with this phone that the Virginmobil site doesnt tell you about?

    You can upload/download ringers, images and phonebook. Just follow instructions posted in this forum for the 8910. (They're quite similar)

    You'll need an 8900/8910 cable, which you can get for $8-$10 shipped, from ebay (just do a title search for 8910 cable), BitPim or QPST, and the Curitel drivers bundled with PC Sync.

    Take a look at this thread for a compatible version of PC Sync:

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=705666

    Go to www.bitpim.org for BitPim, and search this thread for QPST:

    File system is not similar at all. Look at both and you will see Easy to replace tones, hard to add new even if you duplicate the file changes VM makes when you buy a new tone.

    Thanks for the screenshot. (If you could do a fully expanded one, that would be even better)

    Were you hoping to do the same as U NV ME?

    No, I can hex the names of the ones I replace, I just cant figure how to add. I duplicate the changes VM makes when I download one, and make a new directory with the same files etc.. but when I reboot phone it deletes my new folder and changes. It's like, smart or something. heh.
