Funny bug which samsung should have been found out in simple testing
If you have to silence your ringtone when u r receiving a call (becz we might be in some meeting)... the only way is to decrease the sound by volume button.
But when the ringtone is set to increasing melody.. even if you make it zero by volume key.. it rings after sometime... because the logic of increasing melody just increments it by one and continous to increase..
Such a basic feature.. but has a bug in this phone..
There are many irritating ones like this in this phone wrt user interface...
So be prepared to adjust or be+ve midset before buying this phone.
vignesh, 26 Sep 2009hows d camera nd sound clarity of dis phone ..nd can dis phone sustain rough use bcoz am plann... morehi vignesh
pls read earlier comments bro its already been discussed many times.
sound clarity is shockingly lound n clear
n cam is excellent
one of the main plus point of this phone is its cam.
quality of pics is awesome.
n as u may knw it has QVGA(supirior to QCIF) cam recording with 320*240 resolution + night mode so video recording is also excellent...record videos in mp4 format.
u dont find such camcorder specs at same price.
its quite tough i m using it for the last 4 months n dropped it couple of time but mine looks really brand new even today thanks to its premium brushed mettalic looks.
but dont recommend it for extreme rough use (water, sand etc) in that case go for samsung marine.
hope it help
hows d camera nd sound clarity of dis phone ..nd can dis phone sustain rough use bcoz am planning to buy dis phone
Tony, 25 Sep 2009I am unable to get full screen wallpapers eventhough they aretaken from my digicam having supe... moredear tony
those pics must not be having compatiable resolution.
you can set pics as ur wallpapers on full screen having "any" resolution but the thing is it should b portrait.
jus remember ur phone screen is portrait(vertical) n not landscape(horizontal).
even on ur pc's or laptop u cant set portrait wallpapers on fullscreen only landscape can b set as wallpaper on fullscreen.
so choose wallpapers like 240*320 or 320*480 or 480*640 etc's the resolution cud b anyone BUT not the opposite 320*240 or 480*320 or 640*480 etc
the first figure(eg. 240) should not be bigger than the latter figure.
hope it help
I am unable to get full screen wallpapers eventhough they aretaken from my digicam having superb clarity. Why do i get the wallpaper set to be only present over 75% of the screen
Waht should i do???

I no longer get this sound when i check the balance. What worked for me is that i called up my service provider customer care and asked them to help me get rid of this tone. Try it bro. Maybe it would help.

Initially when i purchased the phone i too was facing this problem but now the battery backup has increased to a great extent, after using the above techniques. Also my earphones conked off in just 2.5 months of purchasing the phone, went to the service centre and got it exchanged for a brand new one. If your phone is under warranty, on presenting the bill you can get a replacement for your spoilt earphones. However the warranty period for earphone replacement is only 6 months. If you've passed 6 months from the time of purchase then you would not get the replacement...
Simply i m not satisfied with this cell phone because in few days after getting purchased its handsfree is totally gone nd from the starting its battery back up is also so bad. i used to charge it every day with out using the cell phone a lot
One basic query,
If I have to call up a person from the Phone book by name, the default number showing up will be his mobile number. But if I want to call up hi home number is there is any short cuts, other than opening the contact, scrolling down to home number and calling it ?
(Basically any way to avoid opening the contact and scrolling to the home/other phone entry)
eg. Like SE phone, the joy stick takes you through the different numbers for the same person.
Thankx in advance,
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2009which phone is the best Samsung S3500 or Nokia 5130bro can u name any phone having these specs at the same price or even @2k more.....
at 5.3k u'll get:
2.2 inch screen + 1 crore 60 lakh colours + 320*240 video recording resolution + excellent 2mp camera + QVGA video recording + premuim brushed mettalic body
u dont find these fetures in any other phone at its price or even if u pay rs2000 or 2500 more....(check urself)
apart form its awesome specs.....
other great features of s3500 are:
Multiple Alarm: There are five alarm slots available on the Samsung S3500 and additional ones can be created if needed. Each of them can have its own snooze time, number of repetitions and activation days. The volume can also be different for each alarm. Furthermore, you can set different tones for each of the alarms and you can choose whether it should trigger phone vibration.
Calendars - Calendar Function is awesome in this phone. It have all Indian Holidays marked. If there is a public holiday (date) it will show a icon below and when u click button, it will show you which holiday it is.
PRIVACY LOCK: Locking function is also very good where you can lock ur Messages, call log, phonebook, ur files (pics, videos, games etc), calender, memo, task etc...watever u want. really a unique function...
BLOCK Calls n Sms's: u can block calls as well as sms.
when u connect other phones through bluetooth it ask for a passcode....it really enhance ur phone secutity bcoz of this ur phone can not be hack through any hacking tool.
another awesome feature is when you connect through Bluetooth to any other device you can take a control of that phone as all files and folders of other connected phone are displayed on S3500. You can take whichever files you want without bothering other person.
"Fm recording" n the best part is the audio quality of recorded clip is shockingly loud n crystal clear n can save unlimited no. of stations.
crystal clear call recording n the other person on call will not hear any annoying beep.
"Fake Call function" this feature enables you to activate a bogus incoming call, so you can free yourself from awkward conversations or dodgy situations by pretending to take a call. For added authenticity, you can record your own or ur friends fake voice "call" that plays back when you answer.
Menu transition effect
if u seen latest aamir khan's samsung ad then u wud probably knw wat i m talking bout...wenever u press a button the screen slides from right to left....it looka awesome...u can also change ur transition effect.
"MOBILE TRACKER 2.0"
Mobile tracker automatically sends an SMS message to a pre-designated number alerting you when your phone’s SIM card is changed, increasing your chances of recovering a lost or stolen mobile phone.
in an emergency jus press either end of the volume key 4 times when the phone is closed. this will send the SOS message to ur selected recipients. if they call u back their call will be automatically connected. its definately a life saving feature.
Message alert repetition: it will alert u in evry 2 min if there is an unread mes on ur phone....u can put it off too.
keypad lights automatically set according to day night usage or according to ur custom usage dont have to on or off it manually.
have all the features which only a music phone possess....n music player is shockingly loud n clear.
"Random Wallpaper Effect"
very intresting feature...wenever u use ur mobile n came back to standby....it will welcome u with diffrent wallpapers of ur choice each time.(to know more read earlier reviews)
"SMS ZOOM Function"
cam cover: cam is not at the back of fone....it is inbetween the slide so slide act as a cam cover...protect lens from scratches, dust n all.
can change DEFAULT MEMORY setting: u can change default memory settings of bluetooth, wap downloads, camera, camcorder, voice recorder, fm radio etc from phone mem to memory card.
for ex: now when u transfer any file through bluetooth or click a pic, or record a radio clip they'll b directly stored in ur mem card.
Awesome file management:
The functionality of the file browser is one of the best among non-smartphones. You can copy or move files - both one by one or in bulk, and you can create and delete new folders (save for the basic ones). Files can also be sent via Bluetooth one by one or multiple at once. Throughout the whole file manager, you can pick files you would like to lock to prevent accidental deletion. The whole file navigation thingy is really quick with no lags whatsoever.
apart from these there are a lot more features like "THEME CREATOR" or BLUETOOTH MESSAGING (chat/sms through bluetooth free of cost) ....the list is endless.....we r still exploring.....
s3500 is a "ALLROUNDER" phone
bro jus compare urself u cant find any phone having even half of these features in the same price range...
do i need to say more i think the specs n features say it all....
