The Camera on the front is for using 3G Video Calling, and as for the dialing display - the colour is fixed and cant be changed. I think in the GSMArena review it also mentions this. It is confusing as the menus are virtually identical to other sammy phones, which do include the themes option. Sadly, the 480 doesnt

Nik C, 02 Jun 2008Hi Had the phone since friday.
I am very happy with it..
One question, those who have ... moreNik C,
I think the T Mobile assistant told you to change it to ‘GSM’ and not 'GPS'. I don’t know how you do this on the F480, but I do know how to this on my MDA Vario III.
Glad you finally got the phone. I'll be purchasing it in a couple of weeks though
Jimmy, 03 Jun 2008Alex - once you download google maps, does it cost to use the service? As in do you need a int... moreI am not entirely sure to be honest as i am on an unlimited data plan (which i would highly recomend as the youtube service is excellent) so i dont know but i would imagine it would cost, however it is run by java on the handset so i realy cant say for sure! Sorry! Just get the unlimited data plan! It is necesity with this phone....available from o2 free on £35 pm over 18mnths for free, cant realy knock that!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD: This device/Samsung have delivered what they promised. It's slick, potable, smart, stylish, excellent display, practical (should I go on?). Even the battery life is very good for a touch screen handset. Don’t get me wrong, there some blips (very minor) but mostly technical or heavy users will notice it, which can be fixed with software upgrade or vendor’s config system. But my rating is 9/10.
It's a great pity that this phone doesn't have Wifi and no VGA resolution display.
I think, with this 2 technical features this phone would be a perfect touchphone....:-/
plannin to get this phone by next wk. just decidin between networks... mainly o2 or orange... can anyone who has this phone on these networks pls tell me about the 3g speeds on em'... which ones better?
I bought mine sim free from phones4u for only £299.95, cheaper than both CPW and play.com.
The phone is fun to play with, but I'm not completely filled with joy with it, it's missing little things (that my W810i had), like emoticons/smileys in the text composer, I feel im gonna get bored with the look of the menu pretty quick (customizable options: white or black background) and also I don't know if anyone elses does this, but when you take a photo with the camera, it takes the pic, shows you a very high quality image for a split second then blurs it all?! very weird, I have yet to see what the image come out like on a PC.
Overall I like the phone, and am glad I bought it.
Ramos, 03 Jun 2008hi everyone...actually I've asked a few questions before...but no one answer it...please anyon... moreYes you can use mp3 for message tone, and no you can't use the front camera for photos. It's fairly low quality just for 3G calls.

Someone previously mentioned you can customise the themes, but i have been through every menu and with the exception of changing the menu screen background from white to black there doesn't seem to be any. Also has anyone noticed if you have the screen hold on it comes up with different (and nicer) backgrounds then the ones given as wallpapers. These do not appear in any of the files stored on the phone. Any ideas?!
*** Quick message ***
Full Google maps are available for this phone, simply go to the google mobile site>More>Download goole maps (Works absoloutley brilliantly! so handy
