12 posts in this topic

On these new cell phones u can watch tv on them. Is there a way to hook a razr phone to a tv. Thinking that would be a good way to watch tv while ice fishing

Not much help but I doubt a Razor would have a TV Tuner Card in it!

If you have a good data connection a Slingbox could be an option if you have the right phone. If you don't have an EVDO data rate it's not worth trying since you need a fast data rate to keep the picture smooth. The screen isn't super large of course, but it would be an alternative. There isn't a way to connect a cellphone to a TV yet...but I hear there is something coming.....

I doubt there is a TV tuner card in your phone so no video out.

No you can't do that on your Razor.

Verizon has two Samsung phones that are capable of receiving their TV programming. They currently have 11 channels. More phones coming in the future. Only problem is that you need to be in EVDO reception area which is the immediate Minneapolis area, nothing outstate.

You can however take any video, DVD etc and convert to 3gp or 3g2 format and then save it to a microSD card and watch on your razor.

I currently have a bunch of fishing, tv, comedy videos on my phone, including entire movies like Napoleon Dynamite, and episodes of King of Queens etc.

Google "Howard Forums" and learn everything you would ever need to know about cell phones.

Although if you went that route and Ipod, mobile DVD player or simuliar device would be a better option in my opinion.

Oh great.... one more means by which drivers can be distracted - watching TV on their cell phones....

"But Officer, I was trying to watch the traffic report so I could avoid the jam. I didn't mean to cause this one."

Mind you, I'm not saying YOU will do that, it's just a general comment.

I have Sprint TV on my Palm Treo. It is not all that great. It was cool at first and the NFL network is nice during the fall out on hunting trips for keeping up with fantasy players, but that is about the only time I use it.

Bush-

Do you pay extra for the Sprint TV or is that included in the data plan?

I appoligize, I totally misread your question.

I doubt highly that you could get a signal from your phone to a TV.
