How do you do this on the iD L? My stepmom got a new cell that can do this but we don't know how.

Can someone help?

The list of cell phones / PDAs / etc. that our members have verified to work are in this topic: http://tama-zone.com/index.php?showtopic=22536
That isn't a complete list; other models may work, but aren't on the list only because none of our members have personally checked that they work. In general, to determine if a phone might work, go to the manufacturer's web site, and download the users/owners manual for the phone model you have or are thinking about getting. If the manual has a section on how to send photos via IR, then that phone might work.

The below are step-by-step instructions for various types of phones and the Tamagotchi-iD. The procedure is exactly the same for the Tamagotchi-iD L.

Unless you're in Japan, you won't be able to obtain download files directly from tama-id-l.com. Fortunately, a kind and generous member who was visiting Japan downloaded quite a few files, packaged them together and shared them with us. Here's the topic with the link: http://tama-zone.com/index.php?showtopic=24523 When you download them, they'll be packaged together into a .zip or .rar file. You need to extract them into their individual .JPG files before sending the .JPG files to your phone. Note: do not attempt to edit these .JPG files with any paint or photo editing software. Doing so may break them.

Note: make sure you're using a download file intended for the Tamagotchi-iD L. Download files for the Tamagotchi-iD (original and Lovely-Melody ver.) generally don't work on the Tamagotchi-iD L.

SonyEricsson (based on my S710a)
(1) copy the download .JPG file from your PC into the phone memory's Pictures folder, using a USB cable or bluetooth connection and SonyEricsson's File Manager software for the PC.
(2) on the phone, launch the phone's File Manager, and open the Pictures folder.
(3) in the Pictures folder, cursor to the wallpaper file, then click the More button.
(4) in the More menu, select Send.
(5) in the Send menu, select Via Infrared.
(6) on the Tamagotchi-iD activate the connect icon (heart icon in the upper right corner of the display)
(7) in the connect menu, select Download (it's the fourth menu entry on the first page)
(8) align the phone & Tamagotchi-iD's infrared ports


Nokia (based on Users Guides from Nokia's web site)
(1) copy the download .JPG file from your PC into your phone's Gallery > Images folder.
(2) on your phone, open the Images folder.
(3) in the Images folder, scroll to the file, then click the Open button.
(4) select Options.
(5) select Send.
(6) select Infrared (Note: some infrared-equipped models don't support sending images via infrared, so "Infrared" won't be listed.)
(7) on the Tamagotchi-iD activate the connect icon (heart icon in the upper right corner of the display)
(8) in the Tamagotchi-iD connect menu, select Download (it's the fourth menu entry on the first page)
(9) align the phone & Tamagotchi-iD's infrared ports



Palm (based on my Treo 600 with Palm OS v.5.2.1)
Method 1 (using software that comes on the Treo 600)
(1) copy the download .JPG file from your PC into the phone's internal memory.
(2) on the phone, launch the Camera application, and tap the Pictures icon (at the bottom of the screen, second icon from the left.)
(3) cursor to the download file.
(4) press the Menu button.
(5) in the Picture menu, and select Beam.
(6) on the Tamagotchi-iD activate the connect icon (heart icon in the upper right corner of the display.)
(7) in the connect menu, select Download (it's the fourth menu entry on the first page.)
(8) align the phone & Tamagotchi-iD's infrared ports.
-----
Method 2 (using an add-on file manager application and an SD Card)
(1) download FileZ version 6.8.3 (download link: http://www.nosleep.net/index.php?option ... Itemid=553 )
(2) install it onto the Treo 600 using HotSync, or copy the Filez.prc file to the \PALM\Launcher folder on the SD Card.
(3) copy the Tamagotchi-iD download .JPF files onto the SD Card. You can organize the different item types (foods, accessories, minigames, etc.) into different folders if you wish.
(4) insert the SD Card into the Treo 600.
(5) launch the FileZ application, and select "View and Edit Files".
(6) within FileZ, navigate to the Tamagotchi-iD download file, and tap on it. A red checkmark will appear next to it. Hint: when opening folders in FileZ, tap on the triangle, not the folder name.
(7) tap Send, then in the "Send With" menu select Beam and tap OK.
(8) on the Tamagotchi-iD activate the connect icon (heart icon in the upper right corner of the display.)
(9) in the connect menu, select Download (it's the fourth menu entry on the first page.)
(10) align the phone & Tamagotchi-iD's infrared ports.
