I hated this phone and i found no great use for it what so ever. I hate the battery low sound which you can not turn off, i hate how you open the games menu and it plays a ridiculous song which you can not turn off the phone is a joke and a complete nightmare p.s DONT ACCEPT THIS PHONE if O2 are giving you it as a replacement phone from any other mobile especially nokia as you will feel like you are going back to the dark ages and THERE FLOGGING THEM ON THE CHEAP BECOAUSE THEY CANT GET RID OF THEM! MARK MY WORDS!
Had the phone 2 weeks now it`s a gr8 little phone really good sound and the camera is faultless you will not be sorry if you buy this little number..go samsung
Superb effort! Never really liked Samsungs but D500 cuts the cake. Brilliant display ( though scratch-prone) and classy features. Absence of card slot limits ultimate useability of excellent megapixel camera. Hugely appealing and desirable, though lacks iconic image of the likes of Nokia 6230. Still one of the most desirable slider phones around and certainly a contender for Samsung's best mobile handset which i have never seen in samsung mobile phone thanks
nothin much about this phone..all i can say is...wonderful!...:)
Does anyone have a solution for the poor reception in the states due to the phone not having 850 mhz. I have Cingular, so I guess it's roaming all the time on 1900. Does anyone have any ideas? They just added to the D600 description that it'll have 850, so I guess I'll try and send my phone back (had it only 4 days) and wait for the D600 to come out. Please help.
hi guys.. can someone help me with the privacy feature of the D500. i dont know the default code for that so i cant activate it or use it.. can someone send me the code for samsung phones? like the default phone lock code and for the privacy code. this is my email >>> email@example.com
thanks a lot!
is there a link cable u need to connect this phone to ur pc to download mp3s or do i have to do it some other way.
the samsung D500 is sooooooooooooooooo gr8 ! it as 2 be 1 o d best phones out der but i recomend u to buy the nokia 6230i (even betta) cyz l8a
i may be getting this phone and i think it's really good. my friend has got it and it works fine what i really like about it is the sound it makes when you open and close it!!!!!!!!!!!!! it may be your computer that is not letting you download the song s or you may be doing it wrong!
I was wondering if the D500 can be used as a flashdisk? like storing...general doccuments such as word? as there is a usb port.? Thanks:)
i think this phone is abit overrated but if people want it i still sell it to them. i let them know what i think of it though. if it had expandable memory it would be a much better phone. still is selling pretty good here in australia.
I purchased the D500 just over a week ago and i am getting used to it fairly quickly. Previously being a Nokia user I was a bit cautious about changing brands as my old nokia was extremely easy to use. HOwever I was pleasantly suprised by the ease of use with the D500. If you are reading reviews you no doubt know all of the features this phone possesses..i just want to know if anyone else experiences a few of the difficulties I have encountered so far - (i) the right side of my phone is a little 'flimsy' and able to be pushed back and forth resulting in a feeling of less stability, (i) vibration is only fair and not extremely noticable - resulting in missed calls, and (iii) i know it's been said to death but have to say it again - battery life is very short 1 to 2 days on medium usage if that --> what's the deal there? Overall it is still an extremely well put together phone with a lot of pros.
From what i can see the problems that people have with D500 is a result of ignorance! that why you got a manual with the phone! i had mine for 4 months now and its problem free!
Can any1 help me...how do you get the music onto the phone?i want songs so i can play them on the MP3 on the phone but just dont know how to get them on,please can sum1 offer me help
please email me asap firstname.lastname@example.org
i have had the d500 for about a month now but i think its too overrated.dont get me wrong its a good phone but i was dissapointed when i got it.it has been rated way too much and isnt what u come to expect.the camera isnt that good in dull light and the video capture is pretty poor too.although it has excellent memory capacity and the sound quality is good too,although it is the exact same as my sony ericsson k700i,if anything,i still do prefer my k700i to this.as i aint too happy with this phone im thinking about giving the samsung e530 a try or the e720.what to people think of these?
I would like to know if E720 is better than D500. I would like to buy one but i can'y make up my mind. Please help me
People have been dissing this phone because of the battery. When you get the phone use up the battery power that is on the phone before you place the phone on charge for 14hrs. That way you get 100% charge. If you put the phone on charge as soon as you get home there is about 15% charge already on the battery so the phone won't be charged to 100%. I flatterned my battery when i first got this phone then charged it for 14hrs till flat then charged for another 14hrs then flat then another 14hrs charge. 3 lots of discharge and recharge for 14hrs will give you the best battery power. I get 4 days out of my battery because of doing the way Samsung recommmend that you charge the phone. So in other words i have no problem with the battery on my two D500 i have.
Hi there guys. I have just recently been given one of these phones. I already had one and now i have two. I haven't had any problems what so ever with this phone so far. I am able to copy all the photos etc via infra red. If there is anyone in Australia with this phone just contact your nearest phone agent and they can tell you where to take the phone to be fixed at a authorised repair centre. You have a 12 month warranty on this phone. As long as you haven't dropped it or got it wet etc then you will be covered by warranty. Also the best bluetooth which i use for this phone is the Motorola HS805. The reason as to why i suggest this bluetooth is because it has up to 22 hrs talktime and 22 days standby. You don't need to use a ac charger to charge this bluetooth as it runs off AAA batteries.
well i had my d500 for about 2 months maybe and i have had no problems until recently! my screen is messed up can't see anything but a white light...i can still hear everything perfectly its just nothing shows up on my screen but LIGHT i tried restarting my phone doesn't work anyone got any suggestions for me?
