Look, all I've said is that in my opinion this is the worst phone I ever had... and I've had my share of siemens, erricsons, and a great deal of nokias.... I know that D500 was voted phone of the year, and Indeed It is more "stable" as I said.. no crashes and no serious bugs, but still has it share.
E730 might look attractive because it has so many features in such a nice package, but actually I was very dissappointed by it. I mean for example (maybe I was rippedoff and given an already trashed one) but doesn;t the fact that you may have 100missed calls and the external display doesnt show you anything bother you? It does bother me...Or why would you have a secondary display wallpaper if the thing keeps turning off anyway (and its good it does that don't get me wrong, but comeon... two clocks it's too much for any intelligent person... what should you do with the analoque one? have it look pretty for 3s after you close the clam?)The camera is good, but what the hell is it with its flash? It's good only for looking for your keyes under the bed.. Don;t get me wrong, I dont give a s*** about flash but it's sooo much dimmer then on any other phone.. even samsungs. Listen, the list just goes on and on with the things that are UNsmart about this phone. I'm telling you... pretty piece of junk. I said it before... Excellent camera, nice package, but piece of rubbish! IMHO
did anybody realise the visualiser is a fake one? even when there is no sound at all, it will just keep jumping around.
Sadly, I don't have a solution for that cover display thingy. :P And I don't really mind if the screen goes blank, because the time is always displayed anyway.
I haven't had the call problem that you mentioned. Also, there's an option in the Calendars menu to add a schedule, and it lets you set an alarm every day, every week or every month.
Sure the phone has its bugs, but no phone is perfect. IMO, it's still better than Nokia 6260, which is pricier but has less in the way of features. Even Nokia 3230 is slightly inferior compared to E730.
Anyone that really likes the phone can just look at the plus sides of it and just bear with the downsides, but anyone who doesn't really like it can sure name a whole lot of negatives. So I guess it just depends with taste.
Also, this phone is cheaper compared to a Nokia phone that has equal features.
ive been using this phone about a month and a week so far i dont face a problem either like nibiru are saying.
what is he about?
i read ur comments abt e730.according to u e730 is a junk fone which samsung released proudly. very interesting. nobody has the pblms that u faced.
u also commented abt ur girl frnds mobile d500 as bad. FYI d500 is rated as the best mobile last year.
i cannot seem to find a good phone...
could someone tell me what the good and
bad stuff about this cell?
like i totally want a better phone than the
nokia i got now...
so please someone tell me if this phone
is worth it..
thanks alot i you do...
Am I the only one who thinks this is just a piece of junk? I've been a hardcore nokia fan for years, and 2-3 months ago, I decided I wanted a clamshell, but looking at what nokia had to offer, I decided to buy this.
Im now looking for somthing to change it with because ITS A NIGHTMARE !!! It has so many software bugs, i dont even remember all, but let me give you a taste: Sometimes when calling someone after ending a call and you're using the phonebook to select who to call, you end up calling the last person you've talked to, although the phone shows you're calling the person you want to... THAT 'S JUST BAADDD and enough... just imagine recieving a call you don;t answer because you don;t like the person calling or whatever and then trying to call your girlfriend and the person you just didnt answered to is picking up the phone!!! hellooo??? something else you say?? how about 10 other things that are just killers??? how about setting a reminder that you just can't have repeat itself every 2 weeks or hell !! every week!!!
It's just a piece of junk... the battery is also garbage... 2-3 calls and youre half through (im exagerating a bit about the bat, but it feels like that).
Look, trust a guy who got burned !! If you;re thinking of letting go of your nokia, even a 3310 for this one.... DONT!!!! Its not worth it, unless you like to have a dumb but pretty phone... NOKIA RULES... maybe SE too, dunno
And another thing... you wont use the radio TRUST ME... and unless you have earholes wide ass a bottle, you wont get the handsfree to stay in the ear... they keep falling out...
CAMERA is very good though... but overall phone is just a disaster... as all samsungs as I stood to find out (my girlfriend has a d500... same junk, slightly more sable)
Hey Chiniseman, thanks for the help.
I have one more question, about the external screen: how do i set it up to keep displaying the analog clock/external picture?
It shows for about 2 seconds when i close the phone, but then it just fades.
Can anybody please tell me how to solve this?
Also, anyone haveing any luck uploading java games and apps to their phone using Bluetooth?
Does "flobot's super incredible amazing and complete guide to Installing java games/apps on the Samsung D500via bluetooth" work for the e730 as well?
Actually, Chineseman might be right about the problem of conection closing being related to the OS.
I've been having the problem, and I'm currently running Win98SE. Those who have been having the same problems, what OS are you using?
I've ordered a bluetooth dongle, so hopefully all will be fine when I get that up and running.
yeh i think on the language select menu they have chinese.. and yes it is true that it cannot vibrate and ring at the same time. It dosn't vibrate when you recieve a call
You can use either Bluetooth or the PIM File Manager, and they are independent of each other. I usually only use Bluetooth, since it transfers at the same speed. So it's your choice whether you want to use it or not.
Also, if some of you are having problems about uploading large MP3 files, like 3MB or more, then you may be experiencing the problem that closes the connection to your phone. I guess it's either memory dependent (PC memory) or OS dependent. When I use Win98 to upload files, the connection closes, but when I use WinXP, I can upload just fine. So you're better off using Bluetooth again, you just have to buy a Bluetooth card (which connects to your USB port). It's not that expensive.
can this phone type Chinese words?
is there really a problem tat the ringing of the phone doesn't come together with vibration?
can anyone tell me if it is possible to change the message alert to a none generic one
Can anybody please help me?
If i connect my e730 to my PC trough bluetooth, do i still need to install the PIMS file manager to upload/download from the phone?
Or does bluetooth work the PIMS software?
Thanks in advance.
This phone is great!
But I do hope someone has an answer for my problem. See, I tried using an animated pic, (a file with .gif extension) for my wallpaper. What happened was that it took a while for the phone to load the pic. So I closed it for a while. When I checked the phone to see if it worked, the phone displayed a "Memory full" message. I still had more than 10MB of free memory before I made the .gif file my wallpaper! Now of course, a wallpaper using up more than 10MB of storage really sucked. So I replaced the .gif wallpaper with a .jpg one. Problem is that now the phone no longer displays what happened to the 10MB that I lost. It's like the phone used that memory to load the .gif file, but now I don't have any idea on how to retrieve the lost memory.
Hope you guys have any kind of solution so as how to get back those precious bytes that I lost... =(
(I read some old post that someone else had a lost memory problem similar to mine.)
Naval from my previous views, from about before November the initial charging is 14-16 hrs 3 times each time it becomes flat to maximize the battery life. Some guy got the idea to some sites. im not sure but i did charge it that way.
Average charging is 2 to 3 hrs and wait until the battery warm fades.
Grape get any software that edits photos and resize it to 176x220 then WUALA!
this fone kicks ass,mp3 is exelent, battery is real good and got a lots of memory.
Omg i cant wait till i get this phone. i'm gettin it for christmas so yeah i cant wait. Its the best ever.
um....i dunno i'm guessing around 2 hours??!!
anywayz just a question does anyone know how do stretch wallpapers to fit the screen cos when i recieve images via blutooth and put them as my main display it only covers only half the screen.. help would be appreciated!! thanx
