Default Samsung Corby Pro-Applications and Games installation problem

Hi everyone ,
I bought a Samsung Corby Pro(B5310) sometime back . Its a pretty good buy and good VFM . Internet works good , Interface is also alright but what troubles me is the fact that java applications are not getting installed in it . I downloaded a few java games (also checked their resolution requirements etc) and transferred them into the phone . But i dont know why they were just not getting installed or working on the phone .
The other day i asked one of my friends who has the same phone and he also encountered the same problem .
If anyone knows about the installation procedure or a site from where i can directly get the applications and games which will work on my phone ,please let me know .

Regards,
DSC

Default Installation procedure for application/software/game in SAMSUNG Corby

From SAMSUNG Corby PRO jar file install problem [Solved]. I think this should work.

Quote:

1. Create a new text document on desktop

2. Open the text document, copy the following code to the text document. Before saving & closing the text editor, replace "operamini" in the code with your app name (eg: mario.jar, tetris.jar etc.)

Quote:
<html><body><a href="operamini.jar">install operamini.jar</a></body></html>
3. Now rename the text file from "xyz.txt" to "xyz.html"

4. Copy "xyz.html" and your .JAR file to your phone/card memory.

4. open xyz.html in your phone and your game would be installed.

What has software got to do with charging ?

Charging of a battery is purely an electro-chemical reaction. It would happen even it the phone is switched off.

Looks like a contact problem to me.

Well I think repair guy is taking for a ride because he can not simply diagnose that charging is due to software issue, He might have tried flashing the phone with new-image and might be getting errors so concluded that RAM is bad.

But Software has large role to play in charging mobiles , Charging itself if electro-chemical process but there are battery algorithms which control the charging so as to prevent overcharging , overheating of battery and battery going below certain critical level.

I think P1i suits your needs, though the phone is on the verge of phase out, I think it is great phone albeit bit slow.

It has all the features you are looking for..

3. At least 2" of screen.
4. Should have a document(.pdf, .doc, .xls, .ppt) viewer and able to download attachments.
5. Around 50MB internal memory / ROM / RAM.
6. At least 4 hours of talk time.
7. Should have a key pad, qwerty type preferred but not a compulsion but should be easy to use keypad. I liked the SE W200i keypad.
8. I prefer candy-bar design!!
9. Bluetooth 2.0.
10. Should be compatible with Opera mini browser.
11. Expandable memory (hot swap preferred)
12. Solid built, I normally like to keep my phone for atleast 3 years. I bought my SE W200i in April 2007.


Please suggest some options too.

I have Nokia C3(not yet launched but I normally like to wait at least 6 months after it is launched to see the phone doesnt have any issues) and Samsung corby TXT in my mind but I am not sure about the document viewer in them!!

Surprisingly no HTC EVO 4G talk in here?

Is that because its not gonna work in India? (any way around this, ie are they launching any other versions?)

Its around 15,000/- as per online resources. I can get E63 under 10K which I felt is a bit out of my budget so no P1i please. Any other suggestions?? I am interested in the Nokia C3 but I dont see it coming in to the stores and I am not sure whether it has a document reader!!

Why not Nokia 5230 and have GPS too as a bonus? The price have come down and if I am not wrong, now you get the cable, car holder etc. along with it.

Two days back a local shop quoted 7.6K for the new pack with car holder etc. You may get it cheaper.
