iphone is betterrrrr have al things smsung have but with an ibod and beter qualty (apple) esy to use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i don't advise u buying it
I have to agree this phone has pretty much all one could ask for.
I for one doubt that there will many third party programmes for two reasons. Firstly, this isn't a symbian phone and most software is designed for those. Secondly, due to the touch screen, programmers will have to take extra time/ set up a whole new interface, which I doubt will happen.
However, great phone and I for one am excited.
17GA AKA Robert,
Yes, the phone is practically perfect. (I hope I donít live to regret saying that). The only thing which Iím wondering about is how customisable the phone is. For example, does it allow alternative programmes to be installed on the phone, kind of like my TyTNII.
I also canít find any protective cases or skins for the phone, which is odd considering that the phone is soon to be released...
Julie, I currently own the Samsung Armani and yes on that you can make your own folders and use mp3 for message tones. Annoyingly they still won't ring and vibrate at the same time though!
Its been a long time since i have had a samsung mobile.
Can some1 pls tell me if you can use your own mp3 for text alert now & can you make your own folders for text messages? ALSO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE F, U, D before the phone? Thanks
Apparantly Voda phone are releaseing this on the 29th of May anyone elese seen this.
I've just been speaking to O2 & The Carphone Warehouse about this. It will be the 28th May for O2 & the beginning of June for CPW (despite their website saying 19th May)
I agree that the inclusion of an 8gb micro
sd card compatible slot has made this already appealing phone an almost dead cert pick.
I was worried that the memory capacity would let it down, (due to the fact that the screen size obviously lends itself to movies, as well as the imaging department needing memory for those 5meg snaps!) However, samsung have not disappointed...
The lack of wifi? No biggy in my opinion, at home I've got my laptop and with 3.5G, on an unlimited data plan, why would it matter?
Yep, I think Iíll trust the Samsung manual. I already have an 8GB SDHC memory card as I have the TyTNII (problematic phone) but I was wondering if I was going to have to purchase a 4GB memory card too. Looks like I wonít have to. The Samsung F480 is becoming even more attractive and ideal the more I learn about it. The only thing it seems to lack is Wifi but Iíve never even used that on my TyTNII and most likely never will.
Just to note, the CHEAPEST price for the Samsung F480 SIM FREE Iíve found is **£319.95** on mobile funís website, and believe me Iíve searched LONG and HARD for a price cheaper than this. Some sites wonít give a price for this device sim free as its not released, so Iíve had to exclude them. Play.com and other sites are charging £349 which was is much more expensive than mobile funís price. (see link below all)
it seems popular electronics has it for purchase..699USD
I found that too mate...
tbh you've gotta trust the official samsung manual haven't you?
Although, I would wait, check the manual with the phone and then buy a card as that way you would be pretty much assured the size printed there would be correct.
The Carphone warehouse has advertised that it will be selling it from the 19th of May '08.
Some other retailers have advertised its release for early June.
I did download the samsung manual for this phone, and I did stumle upon it advertising 8GB memory card expandable, but all other internet sites state that the maximum memory card the Samsung F480 can take is 4GB. Whic one is it?
Hi Jenny, where you find out tit was the 19th May? Also, anyone think it would be better waiting for the N96? I really cant decide between the two. Im also thinking the N96 is gonna cost a fortune, even on contract. thanks.
This fone is brill and perfect for my needs! i am getting one as soon as it comes out and it will b the 19th may. sooooon!! jenny xxxxxxxxxxxxx
Just discovered that the phone will accept upto 8GB micro SD cards....
brilliant or what?
The manual is on line:
Why are you all moaning about lack of wi-fi? Unless you're sitting somewhere for a while to surf the net whats the point? When i access the net im on the move to wi-fi useless, and if im at home i use the laptop not my phone, why the big fuss? Am i missing something? Nick
Does anyone know the max size of micro sd card that will be supported by this phone is it up to 8gb or lower. Looks like an awesome phone have one on order cant wait to try it out.
I too am awaiting the launch of this phone in the UK. I have now called o2 regarding an upgrade 2-3 times (as you cant always rely on the information that one person gives you) and each time i have been told that the o2 launch date for the F480 will be the 26th May, However no indication of cost on specific contracts has been given yet.
