my f480 cant install java games or any applications with the .jar/.jad extension.
i love this phone,the only problem is there are no compatible dictionaries and Bibles downloadable from the internet.
But otherwise,its a great phone!
absolute waste of money the battery lasts a matter of hrs compared to a nokia which needs charging every other day i would not recommend this from a firm that makes washing machines and crap televisions .................samsung ....NEVER AGAIN
i have been using the ph 4 about 8months but idon,t like the ph bcos i have to charge the battery everyday.i cannot recommend it for anyone
I just get this phone, and I love it every think is great on it, except wiffi wich is not available (if you need it)

My F480 has started to give a number of repeat sound alerts about a newly received SMS. I want to know how to go back to only an initial alert sound.
Oh man, this phone does the trick for me. Why would I want a smart phone? I am smart enough to know I dont need a smart phone.

I've had this phone for over a year now and I'm getting really ancious to replace it by a better phone.
The phone itself works great and I very seldom have problems using it. Also the phone book is great and easy to manuever.
Compared to some newer smartphones the F480 is quite small and thus they've excluded the qwerty keyboard in the software. However the numeric keyboard works great and it's actually very easy to write somewhat fast using the T9.
This phone was one of the first to implement Samsungs TouchWizz technology generating a small "buzz" when touching the screen which imitates the feeling of actually pushing a physical button. This or similar technologies are now standard in most smartphones.
As the phone grows older it tends to slow down in it's touch-screen reactions.
The camera is, like most other camera phones, rather poor of quality. For landscape photos and alike it's great, but for everything else it's pretty much useless and the anti-shake function even seems to make things worse instead of better. Don't use it for photographing people...
Also the bluetooth has for me been a dissapointment. I had two bluetooth headsets that I used for my earlier phone (also a Samsung) but with this new one the headsets loses connection pretty much right after having connected. I haven't used my headsets at all since I bought this phone. I wrote to Samsung in the hope of them producing a firmware update in which they'd turn up the volumen of the bluetooth antenna. This never came! However connection to my PC using bluetooth works fine, although it's not possible to disconnect unless you turn off bluetooth.
Browsing the internet on this phone os surprisingly good, especially if you install the Opera 5 mobile browser. The standard browser does not have a zoom in/out functionality. Be aware that the phone does not support Java-script or Ajax - and surtainly not Flash.
