I had the e700 & thought I'd try this. Noticed it has the same problem as e700 in that when you go on to a 2nd,3rd page of text it sometimes says you've got 2 or 3 characters left, type another character and you have went on to next page. And on the next page it varies from starting at 160 characters to 144 or something. Not a big problem but annoying if you think you've got just enough spoces on your text and you haven't. I think it will annoy you if you're a texter. I've noticed the battery isn't too great either. Only getting about 2 days out of it & that's not with using it much. Noticed another thing that it randomly goes off the T9 function when starting/replying to a text. Also, I personally think that the ridge below the screen gets in the way of me using the navigation button and that when you slide it up, the bottom part gets in the way of pressing buttons 1-3. I wouldn't say I have large thumbs/fingers. Generally I found it an awkward phone to physically use and I thought that it wasn't too clever the way it done things i.e. takes a good few steps to get reply to a text and send it or poor navigation etc. Altho the SE k700 has a poor battery life too, I thought it was a much better user friendly phone with more going for it. The texting facility is a dream on it (you can go back and change to correct word on T9 without having to delete any characters by selecting it and scrolling).
THIS PHONE IS AWESOME! I have it for almost 2 months and I love it! It is just perfect!!
Groundbreaking, stylish and slides. this is one hell of a phone. yes, i know, phones should'nt be this smart but hey samsung did it. the only thing lacking in this almost perfect phone is memory expandability. they say its equiped with a generous amount of memory but once you've loaded mp3's and photos then you've got to budget the use of memory. this black thing has captured my heart. i've always been a fan of slider phones but by far this is the best when it comes to features and design. i wish my fairy god mother will raed this so she can give me one... hehehe
Hi, i wuold like to ask about the blutoth of the samsune d500 ho did working, i buy just yesterday this phone but is empty & i wan to make it easy for me, a need to know the password for the blutouth of the samsung d500.
Thank you for your attention and i wait for your answer.
TO THE SAME GUY AGAIN:
YES, and another thing! What's really positive with the E720 is that its RECORDING quality is much better but pictures worse. PLUS a funny thing is that you can use a video as a background =D That's amazing!
TO THE GUY WHO WAS WONDERING WHICH SAMSUNG TO BUY!
I am in the same position as you =P I'm struggeling with that question too.
Both are HOTT! BUT, D500 have 1,3 mpix camera, while E720 has a 1,0 mpix camera. ALSO the E720 lacks in IrDa, which is not good, because someday you'll meet someone and want to transfer something via IrDa, but it wont work because the guy wont have bluetooth and you wont have IrDa.
As the matter of fact D500 is better. And I think I might be going with the D500
i got this phone for my sixteen birthday and well its a good phone overall and probably one of the best out but i am finding it very hard to get mp3s on to it ive bought a usb cable and its still just confusing if anyone knows how i might be able to do that please let me know on 07845566412 and any girls aroud my age txt me lol !
hey, can anyone tell me which phone is generally better? The d500 or Samsung E720? I really am tied between these two phones! Both look great and have really good features. Please help me if you can!
is the camera good or not because loads of people are saying it is crap and then loads of people are saying it is great please just tell me honestly or someone send me a picture cause i dont want to watse my money on a phone that the pictures are ubbish on please please please help me!!
I have also brought the Samsung D500 its ok! I didn't think it would be as big as it is, as i had a siemens sl55 before that's May-be why it feels big to me...
I really don’t like the camera my photos look very light, I took a few photos at home and outside and they are still very light even after changing the contrast, and the other thing I don't like is a lot of my friends asked me straight away if the mobile is my husbands phone because of the colour, I wish Samsung made different colours such as RED!!
I would really think twice about buying one if you only want it for the camera! they are very poor
But it can record up to 60 mins of video, but you can't add a memory card! This is hard because you will have to delete some videos you have recorded earlier if you want to record 60 mins.
And for $999.00 dollars I could have brought a Nokia 6600 and added a memory card and for a lot cheaper!
Hi, I just got this phone and it is awsome!! I just have one question. I'm using the phone with T-mobile here in US, is there a way I can program t-mobile T-zone to the phone? I can't log on to the internet and can't download photos, ringtones and games. Any info will be much appreciated.
ive got a samsung v200 but it says limited service on the screen when switched on does anyone know what this means
I find the process to download MP3 files from my computer to the D500 via a USB cable very tedious with the Easy Studio and D500 Handset programs provided with the phone. After a week of trying to get it to work, the phone can still not download MP3 via the cable, and seem to use only .MIDI or .mff files as ringtones. Please give me advise on how to get this process to work. Thank you.
ANyone can confirm whether USB cable (generic manufacturer) for Samsung E820 also can be used on D500? Thanks!!!
To view the .3gp files, u can use real player 10, but u will need to download the codec for that filetype.
The video format of most phones nowadays can be played back in regular Quicktime players.
Including the d-500.
So are the photos and videos taken on this phone not very good? Have got a 6230 but thinking of getting this phone.
Hi.. when videoing using D500, it is saved in a format with extension .3gp right..? Anyone know whether wad player can i use to view my videos..? thanks..
