to those complaining about battery life
you should reduce the amount of time spent on
this is after all a mobile phone.
how can you mourn about this phone's battery performance if you treat it like you stand alone mp3 player or a digital camera.
my d600 still indicates three bars after 2hours of talking time.
so I wouldn't complain too much with battery performance.
I'm using this phone with under AT&T Wireless. Would you happen to know how to get on-line with it or the gprs settings. Thanks
Sonice wellness is a set of music noise that suppose to help you relax. Its kinda stupid, but they did some research and it helps i guess. /shrugs.
You cant edit the pictures, just use photoshop resize/crop your images to the phones specifications 240x320 pixels.
t-flash is the same as microSD. To transfer to the Memory card:
1) use a card reader for the t-flash
2) set the phone to mass storage to store to the card.
3) use the program Samsung provides to copy to the card
To store to the phone
1) use bluetooth/usb connection with the program samsung provided to copy your mp3's to the phone
The message tones is one of the drawbacks of the phone(doesnt bother me cause mines always on vibrate), your stuck with the default sms tones of the phone.
Dave: the only way to show the clock is by holding the volume button. Its samsungs way of saving battery. I suggest just pressing anybutton or opening/closing the phone.
Sonny: I agree, T809 should be cheaper, quad/edge band, most of the D600 features.
Eazy E: I + many other ppl wrote the negatives about the phone, just look back at the old posts made here or look at www.howardforums.com i write there too.
Chris: D600 does work with cingular, i have it with cingular. I even saw it on sale at a T-mobile shop.

Can ne1 give me any top tips on the phone whats the t flash and how can i put music on it and MOST important why cant i change my message tone!!!!!!!!!! help please
Does any one know if this phone can display the clock when the screen goes blank? (eg.D500)
Hey people, i'm thinking of getting this phone but all i hear are negatives abt batt life and the fact that this dosn't have a wallet function and no this or that. May i please have info on a better phone if avail that has everything that u want. This is an excellent phone that has extreme value for what u'r paying.
My friends are enjoying the functions of this phone more than they did with the N90.
May i please ask if any of u guys have any systems prob with the phone, by means of software or hardware...beside the batt
For you USA Cingular people. I am in the US with Cingular, and this phone DOES NOT WORK with Cingular. I bought this phone and had the exact same problems you describe - no MMS and no WAP connectivity. I talked to Cingular tech support several times, and they were very willing to try and help me set up all the correct setting, but it still failed to work properly. Luckily, I bought from a place that had a 30 day money back guaruntee. If it's not too late for you guys, return the phone.
Too bad it didnt work, because it was a beauty.
Thats wierd... where are u guys from?
Mine came packaged in the box, a Sandisk TF 64mb together with a sandisk TF to SD adapter.
There is also a label on the box that says its included together in the package.
Oh well, even if u guys were shortchanged, a 512mb Dual voltage TF card now costs only like USD35, while a 1gb one costs USD65.
does anybody know how to setup MMS and Mmode for the AT&T service. Please email me at email@example.com. Thanks
Btw, we can't chose different tones for messages, only those that came with the phone, but now we can chose any ringtone for the alarm function (mp3, poly, etc).
Well, my D600 didn't came with a t-flash card (microSD). It came with a SD adapter to make the microSD readble for card reader's.
Love the phone! :)
i have cingular service and i have a sony ericsson s710a which i treasure but i want something with more memory for mp3s but i dont want to sacrifice services like media net and other apps like that so can anyone tell me how this phone does on cingular
Mobile Guru: You didn't get a TF card with your phone?? every phone comes with a free 64mb Sandisk TF card with an adapter.... dont they?
Sher..........I have already posted a thread earlier comparing W800, D600 and N70. Please go through it and take a decision if u like.
Linda............You can press and hold * button to deactivate T9. On the top right corner u would see Abc instead of T9EAb, when in mesage composing mode.
THERE IS NO VOICE DIALLING IN D 600, but normally u dont use it unless u r in a quite environ which is rare nowadays. So no use of voice dialling.......
MP3 copy........very simple........no CD or software required........All u need is TM card which is not supplied in the box. You have to buy it seperately.........
1. Plug in the USB cable in USB port.....
2. Go to menu.......settings.........phone.....usb settings.........click mass storage
connect ur phone to USB cable.......BOOM....ur memory card appears as a seperate drive on ur computer.......copy whatever u want........SO SIMPLE........contact me here if u have any problems
LOL sher, I was in your shoes few days back.. heres y i chose D600
D600: Nice design
N70: symbian thus slower/laggier shorter battery life. Rear slider and mmc cover is fragile.
W900: It had streaks of orange... eew :p
Linda: Not sure what u mean by automatic words, if ment T9, press the top right button above the red cancel button once in typing mode and u should see T9 @ the bottom right of screen.
Gav: 2 ways, either use the Samsung PC studio given in the CD or plug the T-flash card into the adapter and plug the adapter into a card reader.
JayZ: 3 Days is the standard lately, due to multiple functions like Bluetooth, Surround speakers, large screens... 3-5 days is considered quite long given that the batt is already a wooping 950mah compared to PDA phones with 1100mah. I doubt there is a phone now that can last past 5 days anyway.
Joseph: Wow u are right, the D600 is not available by any of your telecos... well just wait for the T809(aka T820) to be released by your T-mobile this DEC, it has the same functions but 6mm thinner but lower batt and camera.
Sue: did u do an overnight charge on your first charge before u started using the phone? If u didnt u might have spoilt it on your own :p
