    Default Vodafone 703SHf by Sharp

    Just recently, my relatives went and bought me a whole bunch of new stuff since I'm leaving here soon, including this phone.

    It's a Vodafone 703SHf straight from Japan, with the Japanese firmware, etc. I know a lot of the problems can be attributed to this firmware (they don't have T9), but my problem is that I can't open mp3 files. It just won't open them. The phone seems to read the miniSD fine, it finds the files fine, it even recognises them as mp3s, but it just says something like "File cannot be opened" and that's that.

    I've searched around for a while, already, but this phone doesn't seem to have been released in western countries. I'm so stuck. Someone help, maybe?

    Found a possible solution from http://www.howardforums.com/archive/topic/720608-1.html

    Maddy, things change, features get added. The 703SH and 903SH JP versions now support regular AAC files, due to Vodafone Japan asking Sharp to put those features in, according to an interview ITMedia had with Sharp. All you need now is a program to convert MP3 to AAC, and you're set.

    As for ringtones, converting to SMAF is easier than you think. It only involves one program from Yamaha's website, and I happened to find the link.

    All you need is the WSD (Wave Sound Decorator) program, and you convert to MA5 format for it to be good quality. It's really easy if you give it a try, and is much cheaper than shelling out for another card reader.


    ------------------

    For converting to AAC, if you don't already have program that will convert to it, this is the big badass of audio transcoding. BeSweet

    Go to stable release section, then download the GUI and the program. Alturnatively, there is a stripped down program there that will just do conversions to AAC if the main program looks to complex.

    thanks to Silverwmoon!

    Thanks for the help. I knew you could always do that, but I was never looking forward to converting every single mp3 I wanted to play to an AAC. MMF tends to kill the sound quality somewhat, too. I guess the Japanese really want to you to buy mp3's from them...

    I wonder if I can bypass that somehow. Oh, well, I'll find out somehow. Thanks again!
