I just tried out the gotchiworld.de site to try and download some stuff, and, *surprise*, it did not work...
My phone is a samsung galaxy pocket, and does not support ir connection. However my old phone(that turns off by itself every couple of minutes) has ir, but no internet acess.
I downloaded thus a wallpaper on the samsung phone, sent it to the old one (a sony ericsson K700i) via bluetooth. Then I picked the download function on the ID L-e, and pushed "send via ir".
First time it almost worked, until the dumb phone decided it was sleep time...
All the following times I've tried, and still now, I can't get past the "stand by" screen on the ID L-e.
I will pick "Download", "stand by" will appear, I push the middle button and... No response... X(
I'm usually not this helpless, but this is my first ever color tama and I have no idea what's happening... Alias I am here begging for help from you guys...

Here are step-by-step instructions, based on my SonyEricsson S710a.
(1) copy the wallpaper 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 L 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 L's infrared ports (but keep them about 10 cm apart from each other.)
If the CONNECT message never appears, check your phone to see if IR is enabled (there may be a power saver setting that disables it.) Also, here's how to tell if your phone is actually trying to send IR: look at the IR port through a digital camera. On the camera's screen you should be able to see a (maybe faint) flickering red light in the phone's IR port.

My usb cable for the sony phone has been broken since before I got it :/
My brother has a similar old phone with ir though, maybe he's got a cable for his and I can borrow it...?
I'll try this out; thank you so much Binary!

Another (easier) way of copying the download file from a PC to a phone is to use a memory card. Most phones accept either a Sony Memory Stick or an SD RAM card. If you have a memory card reader for your PC, you can insert the memory card from the phone into you PC and copy the files to it withour having to use the phone's file manager software. (You may, however, have to copy the files into a specific folder on the memory card. Which folder you need to copy them to, depends on the phone OS.)

I couldn't connect any of the old phones to the computer, but I experimented some with holding the tamagotchi on different sides of my K700i, as I did not know exactly where the Ir was placed on the phone.
When holding the tama and the phone top to top it worked, with the files sent from my samsung via bluetooth! So simple and easy.
Is there a limit for how many games and wallpapers the ID L can store? My memory is full at two games...

Yeah, it's just that the power cable connection is bretty bad, so it will connect and disconnect all the time if I move the phone at all while charging. It has to be completely still when the charger is connected, thus I can not use it when charging.
If you are having problems again with the phone shutting off during downloads, maybe you should plug the phone into a power source since it sounds like you have a very unreliable cell phone battery.
Also, it is anyway not the battery which is messy, because the phone doesn't die because of the battery being empty. In fact the battery lasts for up to six days without charging, so the off-shutting-reason has to be something else.
The phone has actually worked fine for several days now, so even though the buttons are slow and everything I've been able to download almost everything I want, except for the custom made items. The only exception is Ra's gryffindor common room. It's the only custom made thing I've been able to successfully download into my tama.
I guess nothing is broken though as all other downloadable items work just fine, but it's strange. Whenever I try downloading custom made stuff, the phone and tama will connect just fine, and everything seems to work until the very end when the phone says "sent". Then "failed" will appear on the tama screen...

Otherwise, the files may be too big for your phone to handle, or maybe they're corrupted?
