This is by far THE worst phone I've ever tried.I got the brand new one and got negative feedback from all my callers. It had a major problem with it's major function "answering calls"; sometimes callers can't hear me at all, then after restarting the phone, they hear me. It happens after missed calls. Not to mentions the ridiculously low call voice and endless stories with software errors. I wouldn't advice anyone to buy this messy phone; it's look's deceiving!
Mel, 06 Aug 2009Hi, how do I hide my caller ID? I selected under Phone settings -> caller info -> hide, but wh... morethat function is sometimes preset by your network provider regardless of wether you change it in the handset settings or not the best way is to put 141 in front of all the numbers you wish to hide your id from or if you wish to protect the imei number being sent out when you dial put #31# in front of the number,hope this helps

Hi I just got this phone... I am a frequent texter and already frustrated because I can't figure out how to type words with an apostrophe such as "it's" "can't" "you're" etc without having to go into symbol mode then back out. Also not sure how to save words like this when asked to add the word?
Please help! Very frustrating!
Any Mac users out there? I had a Sony Ericsson K770 and bought isync software from Nova media - superb! I got this Samsung Ultra when my Vod contract was renewed in May and am still waiting for software to hook my phone up with my life via isync - any ideas? I don't see how people use these phones without being able to link to their contacts/diaries (let alone downloading pic's). Any assistance appreciated (either that or we need to mount an army to face off against samsung for this slight to Mac users!).

samsung s8300 is a good phone. its battery backup is also good as compare to n95 8gb. its camera is too good in day and not bad in night.
Hi guys, as i said i bought the fone. There are two problems that i m facing,
First is d poor battery life, and its in all s8300s so i dont care abt it, the solution is that i alaways plug in my phone to ma pc and it charges. Btw wen its totally empty it gets full in abt 20-30 minutes, so that is good.
Now the other major problem that i am having is that when i want to see the pics that i have taken, and i click the play button from the camera scree, the fone hangs like shit. It doesnt go ahead until 2-3 minutes. So today im going to d service centre to check wats faulty. And does flashin my mobile, damage it or is it safe to do so.?
Well most people say that this fone sucks , this and that buy i still love it a lot.
Phone is greate in all features, infact the most fantastic phone i have used (S8300). My last upto a week on regular talk tims. The trick is this-make sure u disable all vibration modes on the phone ie Ringtone, Feedback.
Thank u Samsung for the Mobile Tracker security and personalize password protection tech.
