Dirk's Panasonic Cellular Phone Pages

Ok, I know this page is mainly about the Panasonic EB-G 500, but I'm trying to integrate the 450 and 600 too (and I think most of the information works for all of them).

IF Product Design Award 1997

And I'm not the only one thinking the Panasonic EB-G500 has a great design: The people at Panasonics got the "IF Product Design Award 1997" for it.


Ok, it's not much to say about tips 'n tricks for the Panasonics - and I hope you will understand my English ;-)
(If not - please feel free to contact me by Email Dirk@Verheddert.de - and any suggestions to improve my English like visiting you in California are welcome :-) )
Ok, you won't find so many tricks for the Panasonics, because they don't have a monitor mode like Nokia's or Ericssons. You'll need some kind of service device to change "the last bit" of your phone - but: do you really have to know if your software release is 8.0102 or 8.0103?
  • The 500 does not have a key lock - I don't know why it hasn't got one - but there are two workarounds
    • Push F 1 1, only way out is "C" - it's easy and helps...
    • Push F 0 1, locks the phone, you have to type your code to use the phone (yes, you shouldn't forget that code... put it at a save place ;) )
  • The well-known code to show the IMEI-number (ok, you can see it inside your phone when you release the accu =:) ): *#06# (does anyone have an page with these gsm-codes written in English? I've got a link to a German page on my German Cellular Phone Pages...)

  • Panasonic Japan's pages about the Panasonic 500 (and they are not in Japanese ;) ).
  • Hmm, I don't think they will ever put anything about this phone on their pages, but try out Panasonic UK.

The 600 has a different connector, but I think the 450 has the same scheme. Please send me an Email if you know something else!

Pinout 500 1 - GND

7 - SERIAL_DOWN -> UART down
8 - EXT_PWR <- POWER FOR CHARGING

10 - RX_AUDIO ->
11 - nRADIO_MUTE -> L=MUTE
12 - nHF_SENSE <- L=H/F MODE
13 - RESERVED L=FLASH WRITE ENABLE
14 - IGNITION <- H=ON
15 - nLOGIC_PWR -> H=HANDSET ON
16 - PAON -> POWER AMPL.CONTROL SIGN.

I'm using my phone in my car with the original Panasonic car kit and a Sony car stereo. The speaker build into the car kit is a bit low - has anyone of you installed it using the stereos speaker? I use a Sony radio - the manual says it's prepared to work with a phone - does that mean I can use the mute-function - or does it mean I can use the radio's speakers? Please send any ideas to Dirk@Verheddert.de - Thanks!




Ok, I had to place it somewhere =:) If you are reading this page, you will perhaps know yet - the best feature this phone has is its "vibra call". You won't annoy any people because your phone rings - you will "feel" a call even if you put the phone in your jacket's pockets.
I think it's easier to laugh about some dirty jokes ("Hej, thats for girls, isn't it?") than to crunch your mobile because it rang at Vivaldi's "Four seasons" (yes, other phones can play tunes I know, but even an ericsson 788 doesn't seem to be the right instrument to play in an orchestra :) )
But I think the guys at Panasonic have forgotten some features (no, don't play Wagner if I get a call from my mother in law!) like to show the callers name if I have him in my telephone book.
And I don't like it if my "silent" phone beeps because friends of me have found out how to send SMS-messages ... (ok, my Prof has a cellular phone too - he understood why my phone had to beep six times - but I didn't like it at all!)
