I don't think there is a way to stop the ascending tone. I too was annoyed by it, but I've already grown to get used to it. Its not so bad after a while.
D500 is a great phone. But why does the ringtone start low and then goes suddenly higher after about 2 seconds from ringing??
Can somebody help explain? This happens even when I choose vibrate+melody.
ok question from someone who isnt clued up
if u are on a monthly tariff and download something onto your phone from ur computer ie mp3 or vid clips, does it cost, and how do u upload from phone to pc and lol one more can u upload vid clips to pc
well, in my opinion, if u buy a nokia 6230, u get an average phone becos of the way it looks. even though, its got features on par with the D500, i feel 6230 lacks a lot in terms of design statement. the only thing which the 6230 better the D500 is that its got an expansion slot but i personally feel that the int memory of 96mb which the d500 is offering is good enough. Besides, memory cards aren't cheap anyway. Secondly, the d500 has got the better screen than the 6230 (262k colors against 65k colors).
But the conclusion is, DON'T get the D500. (The last thing i want is everyone on the street having a D500)
I want 2 buy this phone...but please tell me does it worth the money.....and does it transfers data via bluetooth???

Excellent phone. One thing that is bugging me though is the games. I've some here which worked fine on the T610 but when I try to upload them to the D500 I get an invalid file error. They're JAR files so it shouldn't be a java issue. I begrudge paying silly money for games and ringtones.
hi i love the way this fone looks and the features look good as well but im havin trouble to wot fone to choose out of the nokia 6230i or the samsung d500 as hey have simular features eg 1.3 mp cam and the 1 hour cam but the features on the 6230i seems betta than the d500 like the radio etc but i really like the way the d500 looks im really confused to wot fone to buy can anyone help me plz
I got my D500 last week and I can only find one problem with it: you cant change the message alert tone or the slidetone,would have been a nice feature to have, otherwise a great phone.
My suggestion to T.T.
Install the software from Samsung website then activate the infra red on your D500 then put it on your computer. Then when it has the icon on the bottom right saying D500 in range open up the Easy Studio 2.0 software and the phone should be connected down the bottom of that program.
I haven't had any problems with using infra red and easy studio. I downloaded it from
This phone hs been available since the 23rd Of March here in Australia. So if you go to your nearest phone store they will be able to give you a price and sell you one. But better be quick as the first shipment of phones is likely to go as there has been a huge demand for this phone.
Just got this phone last Monday, and love it! I've been taking pictures, and actually used the camcorder to film the highlights of a fishing trip I went on. It works marvelously. I have the black version, I've handled/seen the silver version, but the black is just much nicer. Makes it look more elegant. The silver is cool too, but it kind of takes away from what the D500 is, elegant. I've seen a dark grey/graphite color too, but that's way more rare to come across. I had the option to buy one, but they never had the stock in, but one of the shop owners had it. It's best to use USB to transfer things from PC to phone, or vise versa. The bluetooth works fine linking to PC, but USB is much quicker. The Bluetooth worked fine for me too when I transferred a 256kb video to my cousins s700a. Worked like a charm! Battery holds up very well. Max I've ever lost is one bar, and that with using camera and camcorder on my fishing trip. Reception is better than I though on Cingular, but I'm in California, so that may be why. Ascending ring tone was annying,but now I'm used to it. No way to turn it off. Overall, I'm very happy with the phone :D
I have the silver D500. And its FAB!!!!!!! Didn't realise the silver was a limited edition . . . .i love it even more now and wont be letting it go!!!!!!!! Everyone should have a D500!
What do you think, how is the price of D500 compared to Nokia 6230i?
Any advice as to which phone should I get?
This is unmistakably the best phone around now! it has got all the functions one needs and most importantly, no other equivalent phone comes within touching distance in terms of size. For those guys complaining about the vibration, try checking out the vibrating ringtones! Overall, i am very satisfied but not until i get my hands on the new D600.
what i have to do,if in SCREENSAVER appear a UNredead sms,but i have ALL read???Any1,could HELP ME???
I downloaded the software for the D500 ("Easy Studio v2.0"), but I have a very big problem: it just can't open the infrared port (so it can't see the phone) and it stays offline! I still have the "Easy GPRS" software that I got for my old D410 and that one sees my phone and it tries to load the data. But the "Easy Studio" does not "see" the phone! What can I do??????????????? Please help!
i got my Samsung SGH - D500 on the 19th of March. I never regreted getting it, even though the price was pretty high. It's the best phone i've ever got. I was peviously with Sagem X-7m but now upgraded to Samasung D500. A job-well-done to Samsung. The features are cool, especially the MP3. Thanks Samsung for BUILDING MY PHONE. Tomiwa.
Thanks Kay, I have just noted from the other web site that the silver is in fact a limited edition.
DOes anyone know whether it will be available in Australia soon? I can't wait long to make my purchase of D500...
Also, with the USB port, does it mean we can transfer file to USB storage easily?
