Kishore, this phone does not support transferring of files via bluetooth. Bluetooth in this model is for bluetooth headset only.

  • Kishore

Hi iam unable to connect my Bluetooth with other bluetooth phones , its not detecting at all

  • Nelson

Toni, I don't understand why you got problem opening the menu 2. It should be opened when you buy your unit. However, if you mean you have activated password for it and forgot the password so you cannot open it anymore, you can still open it. Just reset your phone by typing ###847# and everything will be opened.

hi! how can i open menu 2?

Luke I recommend you to upgrade your firmware, if your warrantee is still valid it should be done for free.

  • Nelson

luke, this phone always hangs up if there is unsupported files in your memory card like .wav files, .rar files, ect. But if you only put things that are supported by this phone this really don't have problem except if your unit is not 18b or higher firmwared. So always put files in your memory card or in the phone's memory that supported by this phone. Any problem like phone can't detect the memory card, etc., can also be fixed by resetting the phone (just type ###847#). Resetting the phone once may not fix the problem but resetting it twice or even three times will do.

  • Nelson

What is your question again about menu 2 code? I cannot find it here anymore.

  • Toni

I mean "menu2 access code".Thank you.

  • Nelson

What do you mean access code?

Yest dave this phone hangs up when you play something that is not supported by this phone. So never use unsupported file again to avoid problem. Visit to convert your wav files that you want to use as ringtone or message alert to mp3 and everything will be alright.

  • bombino

OT-S853 can't play wav file, that's why.
Convert your wav file into mp3 format first, then transfer it into your OT-S853 via infra red

Just like to inform that I have successfully use 1GB MiniSD (Apacer microSD put into MiniSD envelop) on S853 firmware level 188 and 169!

(I was so surprised that it works with level 169! However, there is a fair amount of delay when you access the card than when you use 512MB...)

mp4 videos can be played in this model. However, it cannot play videos (3gp or mp4)with more than 65 mb of size and that is how my unit perform. I think other units also performs this way. OT C825 and other models after this can already play and record unlimited videos.

Just reminding people that if you have media file (like .wmv, avi, etc.)that cannot be played in this model because it is not supported, you can always convert that file into 3gp. Just visit It's free.

  • regie
