I got this phone a couple of days ago and boy am i impressed. Being a die hard SE fan i was rather reluctant to get the samsung but i am really glad i did...
The touch screen is a breeze to use and is responsive enough without being overly sensitive.
Applications such as messaging are a simply wonderful. You can even send an sms with one hand while holding on to the rails in the bus or train which is a real plus point... If u are scared that u wont like a phone without a keypad, take a chance on the f480, in my opinion the tochscreen is just as good, if not better than a keypad!
I guess the only drawbacks are that one can barely see the screen contents when out in the sun and that the speakers are a little soft... camera quality also should be worked on... But overall the phone is great to use and is more than just good looks...
mm, 28 Jul 2008yes I found that as well, when speaking to someone the volume does go up and down, and not ver... moreIn the US. The lowest frequency on ATT's network is 800 or 850 which is where most calls are made. The lowest freq on this phone is 900. Naturally, that is a good thing for the phone but the US is lagging behind most of the world.
Most calls in the US are over this low freq. In time more and more calls will migrate to higher freq outside of Urban areas with high volume freq and 3G.
i have difficulty in removing the battery cover..can anybody give me some advise or technique?lol. i wanna try my leather case cover.. and also advise to capture better quality photos?thanks..
Does anyone know how to set up the internet on the phone for tmobile USA?
I am about to buy this phone but since it's not yet launched in India, i have to get it from the grey market. Hence, wanted to know if anyone has faced problems in sound quality and touch screen detection. As, repairing cost for touch screen pad is immensely expensive here.
Guys pls take time out and advise!!!

i'm getting an F480 tomorrow - I got an LG Secret as an upgrade...phone itself is ok (message delivery english could do with a good going over lol) but unfortunately, the piggin texting will not connect properly to the pc so its going back. Cant wait til tomorrow and i get the full touch screen phone (secret is only partial touch) i dont care what the wallpapers are like or the screen saver...providing it does what i want it to (mainly connect to the pc/text/phone/photos...i'll be well happy. when i've had a bit of a play tomorrow i'll come back and give my verdict LOL like anyone cares but i will anyway :-)
Has this phone got a feature like when someone is ringing me up i can record what he is saying and what i am so basically does this phone record both sides?

If your friend has that problem, I think he should take it to the store for repair.

My friend used to be an owner of Sunsumg mobiles previously and he said this was the case.
I hope it isn't anymore haha.
