I get what many of you are saying. This was first set for retail back in July. I wanted this phone since it got shown on GSM in February, being a fan of the D500. However in August I got frustrated at the dates being put back. So I got the SE K750i insted. Very happy I did this as the K750i is the best phone I have ever used! Unlucky Samsung you lost a customer and no doubt many more have done the same.
Thats 26/09/2005 not 26/09/20005! A mistake there,sorry. I was in a rush.
I work with O2 aswell and we are supposed to get the D600 w/c 26/09/20005 for online contracts. Must say that this will be subject to demand. However all device launch is subject to accreditation, production, testing and inspection. Fingers crossed then for those who want it and those who want to sell it.
i work for o2 an we are supposed to be getting them on the 26th of this month.
No it hasn't, it's just onestopphoneshop lying about having stock.
Some of us cant wait!
Me and im sure others are on contracts that need renewing soon.
Mines up at the end of September and if this phone aint out im looking else where.
I would love this phone but if everyone is dragging heels releasing it I'm sure others would appreciate mine and other peoples business.
If u guys really like tis phone .. u will wait for it no matter how long it takes for it to come out.. & its just only about a month more b4 it comes out so y not wait rather than buy another phone which u do not really like as much as this phone? think about it? if u r really a supporter for certain thing u will DEFINATELY wait for it.. dont u?
Why dontwe flood the Samsung website with emails expressing our dissatisfaction?!
Or maybe O2 and other networks.
The one thing that kills a business (or phone in this case) is poor communication to the consumer, we our begging for a release date in stone! Is that to much to ask!
O2 CS says 29th now, and P4U says no way for 15th now - they reckon end of the month beginning of next....
I have some bad news. I have just phoned the Carphone Warehouse and they have told me that the Samsung D600 will NOT be out this month but sometime in October. I phoned the local branch and the manager said that the phone will no longer be coming out in September. I can't even begin to describe how angry I am at not only the manufacturers but the phone companies for messing everyone about. I have wanted to get this phone for ages and I've been told this and that but no-one has ever apologised for changing dates or anything!!!! I am now seriously considering getting another phone
Does anybody know if the new Samsung D600 can sort its Gallery in folders, just like all Nokias can?
I'm afraid with all this back and forth nonsense, consumers will end up just going for something else. My old contract has now ended and I wanted the D600, however the longer the release date is postponed I, and others will go for another model considering the other offers that are out there. After all its only a phone, a good one albeit but there will be other models doing the same functions. Hurry up Samsung and hurry up retailers - dont you realise your customers are getting frustrated now.
That's the problem - nothing personal intended, but you're the third person from O2 who has given a date - the first said 12th Sep for sure, then the second said 15th Sep for sure, and now you're saying "still" listed for release on 19th, as if it was always listed for 19th. 02 CS are saying 26th - the reality surely is that O2 will release it when it wants, and no-one actually knows when that is until supplies are dispatched to stores. Most stores don't even know that it is coming this month. One said definitely in September or maybe October, which made it clear they didn't have a clue.
P4U are claiming it will be out tomorrow, but that's pretty unlikely! Voda stores have pushed their date from 12th to 26th also, so it is looking like 26th is the most likely candidate at the moment, but who knows frankly, they could push that back too the day before.
It's all a bit frustrating - I wish manufacturers and retailers would just pick a date (even if it is much later) and stick to it absolutely rather than move it constantly, sometimes months after the phone is due to be released. This phone was due to be released around July!
Also there's a Daily Star (UK tabloid) competition - see http://www.cheap-postcards.co.uk/texts.html - and the print article on 11 Sep wrote "not out until the end of October" and to visit www.samsung.co.uk for more information.
In "Telecoms South Korea" you can read about how many have been made. It's subscription only, but you can read a key sentence by searching news.google.com: "CJ reported that about 60,000-70,000 units of D600 were churned out at the end of August and additional 680,000 units will be manufactured in September."
