Mat, 11 Jul 2008I also thoguht this was a problem. For texting, the phone remembers that last format you used... moreYes, I think this might drive me round the bend, I want everything in T9 unless I ask it to change. Not being able to do capitals without going through the change input mode screen is a pain, also if you accidentally accept the wrong word in T9 (ie if instead of he) then you have to erase the whole word and start again. If I was a big texter I don't think I'd cope with it but only do 4-5 a day.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2008Im thinking of getting this phone, Is it a fingerprint magnet?yes can attract them but just wipe with lil cloath or finger and good as new
Well if you cant rotate pics how come mine have
*i just went into picture edit then the pic *comes up with tool bar at bottom has < symbol
*open that then use the second link
*click rotate then you can just swivvle the pic then when happy
*click done will ask for save name click ok then your done
figured it out last night at 3am lol playin with phone images also there are loads of cool edit toys here which look great
so anyone who says you cant are just tryin to put this lil gem of a fone down
personally i love it and the features found nothin bad on it
my issue is only the plastic bar under name badge has clicked lil luckily its silver colour under the gloss
Only thing I wish this phone had, the 16M color screen that is on the Iphone. I mean why bother making a nice touchscreen phone if your not going the best screen?
NeilTTT, 10 Jul 2008Hmmm, first reply appears incomplete, so here goes a 2nd time... > open image > select OPTIO... moreAgreed this is how to rotate but for some reason you cannot save the rotation (a very poor oversight in my opinion)
Does anyone else find that sometimes, edges of the screen do not work? The Photopuzzle game that comes with the phone on Orange doesn't work after level 2 as you cannot select the tiles on the right hand side. Have also had problems with the top of the screen when trying to select to move to an item of text in the first line to make an amendment (without using the navigation mode)

For texting, the phone remembers that last format you used so if you use T9 then next time you text it defaults to that. However, when you need to write in other areas (such as calendar) it always defaults to 'abc'. I agree, it's very annoying, especially as there is also no button to capitalise a single letter
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2008are you talking about the F480 ? Non of all these things you mention I have. Mine is a fantas... moreI find texting very easy but i am use to touch screen so..
I dont want to have to put my pictures on a computer for em to look good..and you only need a 2mp camera for a normal 6x4 photo anyways..
If someone can tell me how to rotate a picture..then SAVE it to wallpaper then i woud change al opinion...thats my main hate.
and u cannot have your own SCREENSAVER i dont mean wallpaper..
NeilTTT, 10 Jul 2008Hmmm, first reply appears incomplete, so here goes a 2nd time...
> open image
> select OPTIO... moreIt dosnt let you ro-tate a picture than save it as your wallpaper..(no matter what anyone of you say)
I have the phone on orange andi have 3 other orange contract phones..the signal is much better on them..so its not the network
its holds only 200msgs
n i wanna c my pics look good on my phone... when i set them as wallpaper.. also the camera reaction is slow
I work in the shop where i got it from so i no i dont have a faulty handset.
Has anyone else managed to chip the silver function bar yet i have and not sure if the quality should have been little better on this area as i didnt even do anythin harsh for this to happen.
music quality is good i listen to mine lots in work and get plenty of battery life to listen txt and call.
yer the headphones im not too keen on but am a fan of sony ones but getting used to them otherwise just get an adaptor for one you like.
can any one tell me what the music playback quality is like. also what are the headphones like. thanks
can anyone review about the video camara of this phone? is it clear? thanks...
Got this phone yesterday,I love it.
I agree that texting is a bit slow but I can live with that and I'm sure I'll get faster. Am I missing something or can I not set T9 as default writing mode?
I've always been a big fan of Sony Ericsson and the two previous times I tried Samsung I returned them within the 14 days as I couldn't get on with them, this one however is different! I think we will spend many happy days together.
You can get an adaptor on ebay for about 99p that plugs into the multi plug and has a standard 3.5mm on it! Then you can put any headphones in!
My mine gripe is the crappy earphones that come with it...unless you've ears like Dumbo, they won't go in / won't stay in! Went back to the shop to see what other earfones were available and the girl in the shop said most Samsungs suffered from this prob. Tried to get a 3.5mm adaptor (as the Samsung has a unique interface for the earfones) but none in shop and can't find on 'net. Am considering some bluetooth earfones but pricey...
Ez, 10 Jul 2008I have to say i am very disspaointed with this phone..
It looks great.. but:
*The 5mp came... moresounds like you've got a dodgy / faulty fone...suggest u return to shop for a replacement.
*The 5mp camera is crap
- mine is fine, and images transferred to pc look good IBTW, I also run a Canon DLSR)
*They drop calls halfway through,
- never had any probs
*Signal is rubbish,
- never had any probs
*Dusnt hold many msgs,
- never had a problem, but admittedly I don't send or recieve more than 10-12 a day and tend to housekeep regularly.
*Cannot rotate pictures & save them as wallpapers
- yes u can, but not easy to figure out how. See my earlier reply to anonymous
*Cannot have a screensaver of your own choice
- yes u can...open image and save as wallpaper
*Very quiet when ringing...
- dunno as mine's on a discreet vibrate as I try not to annoy others...
*Video editor is extremely hard to use aswell..
Had mine since end of June and TXTing is awkward but I've gotten used to it and the overall package is pretty impressive, plus I've yet to come across anyone else with one!
