    anyhow, cool one with the screen Bard, when I first saw it I thought "Damn! Bard's phone has awesome graphics if it can render a gradient that well! And good resolution!"

    This isn't really a mod, but can i get a phone not intended for US and use it over here? ie: if i get a gsm phone for Europe, can i make it work over in the States with the right sim card?

    Nope... not unless it is triband and unlocked for use with any network provider

    The US has its own band that GSM phones operate on, that is totally different to the two here in Europe :)

    European phones use GSM 900 and 1800, and US phones use GSM 1900 (MHz). Some phones are tri-band, though, and can be used in both Europe and the US.

    I had this with mine, the internal ariel wasn't attached properly inside as it had a small piece of plastic missing, I hot glued it down and it works perfectly.

    To be able to use a U.S.A. phone anywhere else, one it must not be GSM; two it must be capable of going on the network type you are wanting to use. Then, say you take a sprint phone, you must get the MSL, master subsidary lock code. I know in the U.S.A. even if you have it, others won't let you use it.

    I modded my Nokia 8210 to blooo leds, and it's very bright.

    Also have Nokia 3210 modded to vibrate motor (bought on ebay for abot £2.00) used software to enable vibrate function.

    3310 unlocked with Dejan Flasher, changed leds to purple, then sold it :lol:

    Will put pic of 8210 up later (when I find it)

    How hard is it exactly to solder other leds in a Nokia 3210?
    And what solder would be needed (fluid core, non fluid core, ...)?
    I've got a Weller SP20 (I think, to lazy to check, it's not the SP16, it's a bit larger), the tip is 2-3mm wide, would I be able to do it with that?

    Had my 8210 bloo LED modded. Was nice and bright.

    It used to be bright enough to light up my whole room. In a club, it just used to light me up blue when switched on :)

    at what I paid for my V70, it's not getting messed with; as it stands it came with an inverted LCD and blue backlighting, so I can't complain about that.... though I really need to do something about my antenna, as I've bent two now.... :rolleyes:

    my friend inverted his 8210 LCD and changed the LCD to white so it looks abit like the v70 display.

    my 8855 comes with white LEDs by default so i don't need to mod them much

    Yes I know what you mean on my V60c I destroy antennas left and right. I purchased a new short rounded off antenna but have not taken the time to put it on. From an engineering stand point I will probably loose some signal strength so not sure what is worse less signal or broken antennas, :wallbash: It will be nice to stop bending a breaking the stock ones! :D I will let you know how it works out.

    I' tryed to mod my 3210 and lost all the new bloo leds and dripped solder on one of the chips and supprisingly it never worked after that.....

    To that end I have a spare 3210 vibration motor and data cable if you want to make me an offer ;)
