Original post:

Are there any New Zealanders on Esato?

We could complain about so much!

This discussion thread was created back in 2005 by myself to find New Zealanders on Esato and to provide a place for us to chat. Anyone is welcome to drop in and say hi, so feel free to share your thoughts or ask any questions, be it mobile phone related or not! It may not be a complaint anymore though! It's a slow moving thread because there isn't many of us, but that doesn't mean there's nothing good to discuss!


I am compiling a list of active New Zealand members on Esato so we all know who the New Zealanders are when we catch each other around the forum. If you are a Kiwi and would like your name to be added here, please leave a comment or PM me. I am also adding in your location and the phone you use, so let me know!

New Zealander List as on Saturday 5th March 2011:
Muhammad-Oli Auckland Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10
carkitter Auckland Sony Ericsson Zylo
yea g Auckland Sony Ericsson C905
Soane28 Palmerston North LG KC910 Renoir
JiSm Auckland Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1, Sony Ericsson C902 & Sony Ericsson K850i

Evilchap Auckland Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1
RevoWution Auckland

Click on a name to be taken to that member's latest posts. Thanks to all for the input and ideas for this section!


Below is a map of New Zealand, and on it are numbers which correspond to links below the map. Each link will take you to a photo of that location which was taken by an Esato member using a Sony Ericsson camera phone. Using this, people can see the beauty of New Zealand right here on Esato.

If any members have photos of New Zealand locations which are taken with Sony Ericsson phones that they feel should be added to the map, please feel free to PM me or leave a comment in the thread. Please also make sure you have uploaded them to the Esato photos section first!

The more the better so get snapping!

Thanks again carkitter for this excellent idea!

We use to have those in South Africa a couple of years ago promising free calls on certain numbers and text messages.

This one said 'Pass it on to 20 people and you'll get a $50 credit'.

It coincided with a VodafoneNZ text messaging promotion and a Telecom mobile marketing campaign promoting 'Telephone tag' with video phones using the words "pass it on".

@liquored

I dont know of anyone specificialy who can upgrade your firmware, I'd like a firmware upgrade too - it apparently makes a big difference to K700i battery life. If you have a DSS-20/DSS-25 stand, you can get on the S/E website and download your own I believe...

for the "P910" conversion (or what peopel are calling a P905) you'd need to look at a webservice I guess liek setool or whatever its called to be able to do it. Not sure if anyone around NZ is offering it at all..

@car: Mobile fone repair should be bale to upgrade your firmware, call em on 0508 737 247

A firmware upgrade to yoru P900 will only update the features already available within the phone.


The "P905" update will basically add new features like 1gb mem stick support and i believe cripples some Bt headsets from working with the phone.

Also if your p900 is within warranty it'd remove that too. :/

If your phone is out of warranty then you've really got nothing to loose by it.. But the main reason to do it imo would be for the memory stick upgrade than anything else. If you don't need the memory stick capacity I wouldnt' worry about it.
