WAAAAY back in 2004 TamaTalk first appeared online. Thinks were very different back then. I was still learning how to manage a web site... The member count was tiny... Things were simple. Then TamaTalk started growing... And growing... And growing. Back then in 2004, if you told me that in 2019 this site would still be online I would have laughed and thought you were dreaming. Well... No dreaming required (though there are lots of blinding fast years in between). So June 15 is TamaTalk official birthday. This little community is now 15 years old... 15!!! Like any 15 year old, we've gone through many changes over the years. Uh... I guess 15 puts us into awkward puberty age... *checks for pimples on the site*
It is times like this that I am left feeling very grateful. Grateful to all of our wonderful members... Our wonderful Guides... Our wonderful Angelgotchi and Lifetime Angelgotchi donors... Even grateful to Google for helping people find us for the first time. So thank you to all of you! Fifteen years is pretty amazing, in my opinion.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMATALK!!!
Hello, everyone! I’ve found some exciting info on the Tamapichi phone that was released back in 1997 by Kyocera. This is a really weird piece of Tamagotchi history, and details in English can be hard to find outside of a few brief articles. There’s actually quite a few photos people have posted, so if you want to see more just look up “たまぴっち.” For convenience, I've ran some of the text through Google Translate. (Also, I wasn't able to shorten most of the URLS properly, sorry ._.) Part of Article: "Bandai, the company that sells Tamagotchi, has spawned about seven million of these hectoring toys since last November, and some have even shown up elsewhere around Asia. It's still not enough. Shortages have driven the price of a Tamagotchi in Tokyo to as high as 15,000 yen ($129). Now, the Tamagotchis are launching an aerial assault. Sometime this month, Bandai will begin selling mobile phones that have a Tamagotchi inside -- the Tamapichi. The phones will operate on Japan's personal handyphone system, the low-priced wireless service that has become the rage among the country's teenage girls. Users no longer will have to watch their Tamagotchi die, they'll be able to blast their tiny beast to another Tamapichi owner's phone, where the ailing creature can frolic with its own kind, feed and regain its pluck. The phones will sell for 45,000 yen. Will these monsters stop at nothing?"
Generic stock photo: Mametchi! Here’s a comic advert shared by Twitter user @gulico69: https://twitter.com/gulico69/status/775512464184127490 In the comic, two Tamas can be seen sharing a snack. How cute! They can also just hang out, as shown here: Source
There’s also a video of it hatching: http://twitter.com/korotchi/status/740047518587752449 For more, look under #たまぴっon Twitter and other sites. Apparently, people could connect their Tamas by calling or texting each other if they both had one. If that’s the case, this may be the actual first-ever connecting Tamagotchi (since this was released in June ‘97 a few months before Mesutchi/Osutchi). However, this might mean they’re unable to connect without phone service. It also seems that taking care of it also means checking your calls and text messages in a timely manner: "Tama Pitches" is a rare PHS that DDI pocket has just released with momentum! It was difficult to raise Sugge as the way of growing changed with P mail and incoming! " A lot of the normal icons/options seem to be missing. All I see are the attention and game icons. As for characters, it appears to be a blend of P1 and P2. Some specs:
The phone also comes with an adorable little charger with Tonmaruchi and Tongaritchi printed on it! If you want one, check out these Mercari listings: Listings But wait- there’s more. There was also a second Tamagotchi phone: It appears that it could connect to an Entama via codes rather than having a Tamagotchi built into it. Google-translated: "en Tama can go out to "travel" if the Tamagotchi, which raised some extent. En Enjoy the content of "Tamagotchi Town", one of the "papipo!" Web services, using occasionally displayed IDs and passwords. If you log out and enter the logout ID and password displayed on the "papipo!" Screen occasionally, the series of operations is completed." https://trendy.nikkeibp.co.jp/article/col/20060607/117045/ Another excerpt about it: "WILLCOM and BANDAI announced on joint March 16th that they will release the PHS terminal "Kids' mobile papipo!" For children in June (Photo 1). From March 18th, accept reservations through dedicated website and so on. Although the price is open, it is expected to be 14,800 yen for mail order through Bandai's website." By the way, there was a third Tamagotchi-themed phone that was set for release outside of Japan, but was canceled for unknown reasons. I have no idea where I found the article (since it was a while ago), but to be honest, it looked like a generic flip phone with a Tamagotchi decal. That's it for now. I hope you all enjoyed these little snippets. I’ve been trying to find more about these phones for a while now, and it’s awesome getting some sort of info on them! Of course, there’s also a ton of stuff out there like reviews and blog posts I didn't include for the sake of brevity, so happy sleuthing!
i recently bought an ir phone (verizon palm treo 650) and i was wondering how to get the mr blinky apps on it for the tamagotchi p's? I dont have the wifi card and was wondering if i need to get that (which i fell like duh of course/ but idk where to get that) or if i need to get to get the dongle anyway? i would like to learn how to do this so i can send it to my p's. Thank you for the help!
Hello, I just bought a Palm Centro and I'm trying to transfer an english patch to my tamagotchi p's, but no matter how many times I try it just doesn't work. Can someone please help me? I resorted to buying a Palm Centro after fiddling with an IrDa usb dongle for hours and that didn't work for me either.
June 15 is here again and that means our little community here is celebrating another birthday! TamaTalk is now 12 years old! The Tamagotchi world has changed a lot in the 12 years that this community has been online... I'm sure the coming years will bring more changes. Thank you all so much for being a part of this place.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMATALK!!!
I have decided to save my money up for a Tamagotchi P's, but I have some questions about the English Patch.
First of all, What is the cheapest Infrared Phone I could get that will work with the P's?
Second, How do I download the English patches to the phone?
Lastly, How do I send the patches from the phone to the P's?
Thank you to everyone who has helped me on TamaTalk!!!
