General Comments
This Sharp GX30 is the best Sharp mobile phone yet, I have used this phone for four weeks now, it is a little bigger than the GX10 & GX20 however this is a superb phone, the camera is very good you can download photo's off your computer, you can have fun by taking photo's of people edit them on your PC then put them back on your phone. The sound quality is the best I have known on a phone to date. The GX30 has totally been revamped, the charger fitting is smaller to the GX10-20 however it is a better fit, the battery is a lot smaller too, The MP3 is a good idea too, the first MP3 playing phone was the Siemens I am happy to see this on the GX30 even I have not had the chance to test it as yet, also the GX30 now has bluetooth this is what was lacking in the GX10 & 20 for such good phone all sharps should have had this, like the GX20 you can take videos with the GX30, what makes this phone tops now is that it has a memory card, I use this phone for business to take lots of photo's instead of taking the camera, now I can put the card in the laptop and edit them. it would be very hard to beat this phone, there is only one problem I can find with the phone, that is the lights on the keys could do with the bright blue as the green I find it hard to read, the GX30 is a little better than the GX20. This phone is a must to have.

True this phone has bluetooth, but they have restricted it to only hands free kits and in-car kits, so makes it completely useless feature, can't even send a file from 1 phone to another...WHY?!?!?!

To answer questions on MP3's the phone has an SD card slot on it where you can put in any size card you like (can afford!) I have a 256Mb card in it and can store around 80 tracks on it. You do need a way of reading the SD card on your computer though, and you just copy your MP3 into the Sounds folder on the card.

Hi, do you know where can I get a stereo headset for the GX30 so that I can listen to MP3? Or will any headset with 2.5mm jack work well with it, e.g. those from Nokia and Motorola?

I have an HP Ipaq I've followed the instructions but can't get it to talk via Bluetooth. Apart from that very annoying glitch I think the phone's fine.

Ive heard that the GX30's got the best quality intergrated camera (1mega pixels) but then, because its the first in the market, Im sure other mobile makes will follow soon.
