O2 are releasing the phone the week commencing the 10/10/05.
The reason for the hold up is O2 go through testing procedures which hold the phone up by 6 weeks from when they receive it.
The benefits though are any faults on the first batch (out now) wont be on the phone when they release it and the software is slightly newer due to the bugs being found and eradicated.
If you have an upgrade coming up you can hold out as long as you want for a new phone.
This one is definately worth the wait.
These are further comments on the D600 after using it for about 5 days now.
The camera does not have macro mode like the sony ericsson K750i, thus the sony camera wins, also when u record a video, you get a lag in time where if u move the phone the picture becomes hazy, while if u keep the phone steady the video quality is only good then, and i tryed changing alot of settings but still the same regarding the video recording capability.
I am very disapponited in its video recording capability, because i read a review on www.mobile-review.com where they revied the prototype of the phone and the video recording quality was fantastic and without any lag!!! so what is going on i do not know!!??
Now honestly, i am having doubts about this phone and only wished that samsung copuld have done much better on this phone, now after getting used to it, it seems to me as if the samsung D600 should becalled the D550 instead! and also regarding the piscel viewer, it only opens word, excel, jpeg, and pdf files, but does not open power point files, and even when it opens a file it is slow, and when u seem them on tv u need to zoom in by pressing the volume key on the side up several times and to zoom out u press it down several times which is slow in response.
COOL DOWN body. Don't kill yourself. Life is not just about Horrible Sound quality Samsung phones.
Nothing special about d600 here.
Just like other 2mp phones this one is overpriced. Not a replacement for basic digital camera either ( ESPECIALLY SAMSUNG! We all know that Samsung's regular digital cameras have very low rating, so no wonder camera phones by Samsung get many complaints too).
Lets just hope that the sound quality at least is improed in d600!
hey E you may be upset it hasnt been released on O" yet but would you rather have one of the first batch of these phones that are having problems or woulkd you rather wait til all the relevent testing has been done so that in a months time you wont be after a replacement. i work at o2 and do testing with these phones. it will be out on 10/10/2005 also available on the online shop aswell. just be patient fella, believe me you wont regret waiting
I called the Samsung after the release. (I live in Seattle) They said they have no plans of this phone gettin released in the states.. so I guess u'll have to get a sim free phone.
It's a good thing :) Having a unique and a great phone !!
oh my goddd
can someone pleeeease answer my question, is there anywhgere else but starlinwireless and importgsm i can get this phone!!!!???/
i really want it reallyreallyreally
without mthis phone i would kill myself
Just seen the advert on tv for the d600 before i came to work.Was hopeing it was on O2 online when i saw it but no such luck
Has the EDGE version been released or do all of the models have EDGE capability?
please can someone letme know if you can play the mp3's in the background on this phone,as you can't with the samsung d500
o2 are not selling it yet! typical, lots of release dates have come and gone! im very disappointed with o2 being one of the slowest to get these phones out into peoples possession. Rang o2 again today only to be told they know no more than i do. You would think someone would know the size of that company!
Does anyone know if there is another colour available for the D600 or is it jst one colour?
Hey-D600 doesn`t have a phone conversation recording feature, I already inqired on that. Did you ever consider Sony Ericsson K750i? I have it and it works awesome, a very useful feature-you can assign a voice recorder to the joystick-and at any time activate it just by pressing ONE BUTTON. You can record there as long as the memory allows.
Its released in the link and the carphonewarehouse, but why hasnt it been released on O2 or vodafone???
official release date on orange is wednesday, but cpwh have them now...
i was wondering if the D600 has Phone conversation recording. my D500 didn't have it so it was a huge disapointment. so i was wondering if the D600 had it before i considered to buy one.
