    Since i have this phone i have spent alot of time looking for ways to tweak it. Here is a list of things i have found.

    Check the Exact Battery Percentage

    1. From the idle screen type *#0228# or *#9998*228#
    2. Press the down arrow twice.


    Install a Java Application

    NOTE: Not all MIDlets are compatible with every phone.

    1. Place both the ".jar" and ".jad" files for each application into the "Other" directory on the phone's internal memory. You can do this by putting them on your microSD's "Other" directory, putting it back in the phone, then copying the files to the phone's "Other" directory. Alternatively, if you have Bluetooth or the USB cable, you may use them with the Samsung PC Studio software to copy files to the phone's "Other" directory.
    2. From the idle screen type: *#9998*5282# Choose Install MIDlet. The password is 235282.
    3. Now it will show you the jar/jad files inside the "Other" directory. Select the .jad file you want to install. Press Install. If the the phone seems to freeze at this point, don't worry, just slide the phone closed (make sure the slider operation is set to cancel). If it says "Warning! This MIDlet is unsigned!", and you trust the program, select OK. Confirm installation by pressing Yes. It may take a few seconds to install, then it asks if you want to start the application. Select No and you will return to the idle screen. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to install more applications.

    After successful installation, you may start the applications from the My Games Folder like any other game.


    Unlock your D807

    1. If you have changed your phone password, change your password back to the default 8 zeros (00000000). Also go to SETTINGS, SECURITY, then SIM LOCK and disable this before proceeding.
    2. Insert a SIM card from a network other than the one your phone is locked to.
    3. When Invalid SIM Card error comes up, type *#9998*3323#
    4. A white screen will appear with an exit option. Press the right softkey to exit.
    5. From the menu that appears, select the Malloc Fail option. This will reboot the phone and the normal service screens will appear.
    6. Type *0141# and then press the green call key. "Personalization" or "Personalized" will appear.
    7. Turn off your phone and put the original SIM back in.
    8. Turn on your phone. You will receive a prompt to enter a password.
    9. Type 8 zeros (00000000) (This is because the SIM LOCK Mentioned earlier gets switched back on)

    One user has reported that this is not a true unlock. The phone will be unlocked for that SIM in addition to the original carrier. For instance, if it's Cingular locked and you perform these steps with a T-Mobile SIM, you can use either of those two. If you then try to use eg. a Rogers SIM, it won't work unless you perform these steps with the Rogers SIM, after which the T-Mobile SIM will not work.


    Interpret the Firmware Release Number

    Type *#1234# in your phone to see which firmware you have.
    Firmware release numbers look like the following examples: D500CEEB3 or D500AIDK6

    * D500 = Model number of the Samsung phone
    * CE / AI = Branding type or country/region (CE is western europe, AI is TIM branding, etc)
    * E / D = Year of the firmware release (D=2004, E=2005, F=2006, etc)
    * B / K = Month of the firmware release (A=January, B=February, C=March, etc)
    * 3 / 6 = Revision number of the software in that month (example CEEB3 is 'newer' than CEEB2)

    I would like to know if this is also possible. Taking the provider's name off? I have Cingular.

    Also, anyone find the best way to get MP3's as ring tones? I have used dB Converter but the file was still 300kb bigger than 600kb and it did not work!
