well i have had the phone for a while and have loads of mp3s on discs. on my old phone just had to send to my phone motorola raz with this one have to change to mp4 in nero wave editor for it to work as a ringtone and has to be 300 or under in to the video for it to work as a an mp4 and set as a ringtone
Hi. HELP! Every time I open to send a txt it always starts in capitals. I have to manually change it to lower case, this is getting annoying now! Would very much welcome so advice and instructions on how to correct this. Thanks.
Im afraid that what you say about they are all like this and that the mms inbox is only there to receive the pictures and not view them is not right. I have found out that it depends on what phone has sent you the pic and O2 know about this and they have even said that it should not do this and its something that Samsung have done wrong with the software on this phone. Give me the old mms system any day at least you dont have to mess about saving pictures that you prob dont want to keep once you have seen them.
Samsung you have let yourself down this time.
got my phone today every1's got different opinions about the mp3s some can use them as ringtones some can't im all confused u either can or cant which is it, because id like to use them i dont even get how you change them to mp4 or aac format how do u do that couls any1 email me 2 let me know please thanks.
Yeah this is what happenes with them all. It shouldn't really matter though cos as you said when you save it into the picture folder it is fine, the I-mode Inbox is only there to receive the mms not to view them.
We have had this phone for 2 weeks now but we have a big problem with the picture messaging on it.
If someone sends a mss to it and even if they have their camera set to the smallest resolution when you view it in your inbox the image comes out so large you only see the far left of the pic. The only way you can view the whole pic is to save it to your phones folder and then go and view it. It does not matter what phone we have tried to send a pic with it does it every time.
We have been on to the boffins at O2 and they have finally admited that there is a problem with this phone that Samsung know about but are prob not going to do a fix for it.
Has anyone come across the same prob and if so did you get it sorted.
iv seen on the internet u can get a adaptor thing for the headphones so it changes the phone connector to a normal connector so u can plug in normal headphones. Does any1 kno where you can get the in the uk???
Hi Charlotte, if you uninstall the samsung 3.0 software and remove the driver in control panel/device manager. reboot your computer (make sure your phone is not connected to the usb) then install ALL the software BEFORE you plug the phone in and then it should work, it did for me
Finally worked out the phone, mp3 and everything. Once you know what your doing the phone is very good. I couldn't receive picture messages at first but then after a few weeks they worked. Regarding the Mp3 ringtones etc. I changed them to AAC format with iTunes and downloaded them to my phone and they worked fine as ringtunes, only problem I have is I cant get the USB connection and CD to work properly, it wont find the phone so brough a bluetooth USB thing and that works fine. I also thought it only had 1 ringtone but it doesnt you have to press the middle button when over the set ringtune and it will bring up all the rest. Hope that helps. Charlotte
my phone won't receive mms and i can't send them!! Can't access internet or download things. Any ideas??
is it just me or does this phone have just 1 ringtone and 1 msg tone?!cause it says here it should have 20!
had this phone about 3 weeks and found out you can have mp3 ring tones on it using nero wave editor to change to mp4 in video and use as ring tone but must be under 300 kb hope this helps
Hi everyone, i have left a free s500i video ringtone on my website, http://grasp.to.md/samsungsgh500i.html
A call logo will appear on the front screen and you will hear a old phone ringer.
Download it and bluetooth /usb it to your phone, go to videos/downloaded videos, press options, then 'set as' then caller ID, then select who you want it to ring for. this video is to help people who cant sort out their ringtones, if you have 1 that works you will be able to see what works and make your own. if you go to this page on imode be warned the ringtone is 152k, at 1c per 1k (my phone provider rate) that will cost you e1.52 , so if u have bt/usb, use it. have fun
for god's sake!! why don't anyone ever talk about this phone, all they ever talk about MP3 problem for this phone, get a MP3 player and get on with your like, for a gmae, get a game console, for a phone, get a phone, it simple as that!!!
ive had this phone for about 4 months now and recently it has flipped the screen over so the imail is where the imode is but if you press on the imail button it stil takes you to the imode...has this happened to anyone else?
Best phone if you want to use mp3 or any other ...etc just convert any file to 3GP and to use for melodi.
Fabulous phone, but a blip on the landscape is that contrary to all helpful hints re renaming mp3 to aac etc, no matter what format you save it to on your phone (and I'm sure everyone has read the manual) the file format is still unsupported by the phone, so its not just a select few, no sound format whatsoever can be used as a ringtone. Those that have must be the only ones with a complete phone as I'm told by the techie guys at samsung that setting your ringtones is actually not possible in this phone :( But still a great phone, and cool 'smart' predictive texting. On ya Samsung!!
If you want to access you hotmail on imode, enter the url http://mobile.msn.com you should be able to select hotmail thought this webpage and allow you to check it on you imode phone, one annoyance though is haveing to re-enter your username and password every time you browse to a new page/message
ive just got the s500i and changed my music to acc, but stillcant use as a ringtone as the file is unsupported, can anyone help me. as i would like to use some of this music as a ringtone.
Ive had the Samsung E700 for a couple of years now and it has finally packed up so brought the S500i as I still like my old fone...but when I got it there is No ringtunes on it or anything just 1 main 1 and 1 mian message tone...Is that right? Also I tried sening pictures via message to this phone and it comes up invalid...can this fone not receive picture messages that way? :os Im a little dissapointed really.
