This is the best mobile phone in it's category,it's more better than Nokia N73 and Sony Ericsson K800i
Does anybody know how this phone might compare to the Samsung E900 overall? Thanks!
I have been using this phone for about a month. I use it with my Moto H700 B version headset. This is really such a cool phone and it could have been great, but falls way short in too many categories. The sliding mechanism is satisfactory given the dimensional and weight constrains. But hardly solid. The software is far too frenzied and counter intuitive. It is actually quite bewildering at times. The software is so slow I cannot comprehend how a phone released is 2007 can function like this. It takes way too long to load a song, it takes an unimaginable length of time to load anything from the sim card, especially videos. Just trying to view the menu is slow and abrupt. Watching videos in full screen always seems to set the phone back to the wallpaper screen. It really makes no sense to me. I did not have too much of a problem with the touch keys, you get used to that. But it is far too easy to start dialing someone accidentally or complete erase everything you were texting. This is THE WORST possible phone for for texting. If you text a lot I would advise you to look elsewhere. Bluetooth on this thing is miserable. And just having the ability to use it drains the battery 3 fold. So you literally would have to turn on the bluetooth every time you want to use it. Of course you can just leave it on and get less than two hours of use on a new battery. I have read some reviews about the battery not being so bad or being as good as every other battery. Let me tell you this could not be more false. I go through 2-3 phones a year. The battery life is abysmal. I am surprised some times how bad it is. I have went back to my previous phone because I just could not take it anymore. The battery life and the bizarrely slow interaction with anything on the sim card makes all the features on this phone next to useless. If you don't know any better maybe you will be satisfied, if you do, you will not. This phone is a real dud....
you can use the Samsung SBH170 wireless headphones to listen to music wirelessly and talk on the phone.
How many times do you have to press the volume button on the U600 to send an emergency text?
does anybody use this specific model (e840) with a stereo bluetooth headset?
if so, can you tell whether the FW radio can be heard via the wireless headset?
I know the wire earphones have to be connected in order to activate the radio...
its very slim and beautifull
i m happy after bought u600
also in very low price its imagine
340 dollors is nothing for this kind of mobile i love samsung mobiles
Thank you PINKBLAZE for ur reply, glad to know nothing's wrong with the phone...and i can live with this little problem, and overall the phone's amazing, i advice anyone who's a bit hesitated to go for it,u wont regret it...i'm new to samsung mobile and it took a while to adapt but it gets really friendly...sure some softwares and interfaces of other phones (like SE) r better, but look at the phone it looks awesome!!, still wondering how they could fit all this to such a slim phone
does this phone supports the amazing Jabra BT620s A2DP headphones?
it basically suppose to support it as it supports A2DP but sometimes there are compatibility/interoperability issues.
did anyone managed to listen to music wirelessly with any kind of headphones with the U600?
When i send a message it makes a sound to confirm the message has been sent, anyone know how to get this sound off, bit annoying when sending texts in quiet places?? thanks.
right i am going to help you as much as i can but i have just read about 12 comments and i have to try to remember them so here we go!
1) well unfortunatly thats just what the phone does with the ringtone starting low for about 2 secs and then getting to its normal volume, you cant change it sorry!
2) no, the bottom keypad is NOT a touch screen
3) one persons pfone kept freezing after messages and stuff, you have a faulty mobile - take it back and get a new one, this mobile has 1 year warrenty
4)i got my samsung U600 pink on pay-as0you-go for £150
5)someone's numbers just came up instead of the actual names when they recieved texts - well im not sure about this one but mine doesnt! take it to the shop you brought it from and ask them
6)about sending messages, go to menu, then messages, then create, then message (on the lines on this) , then click on the little tool bar which is highlighted already and it will come up with the 3 last people wyou have spoke to or sent messages and beneath there is options, go to phonebook and tick the people you want to send the message to and then press select or something like that. sounds complicated i knwo but it really is easier than it sounds!
7)there is various games you can play on this phone but if you go on the internet there are tons more! you only have 2 games saved to the phone and then you can buy the other ones but the ones with the locked sign on them are yours and free
8)if you want to find out more about the phone this was the best website i found but you can go to the samsung website, click on products and then go on from there
hope i was a little halp at least!
i got this phone yesterday,it's been on for 24hrs and battery's still 75%..BUT i have a problem, when i get a call the ring tone starts with a very low volume for 2 seconds then gets back to the normal volume, and it's not on ascending...the phone is awesome but that thing pisses me off!! PLZ SOMEONE ANSWER ME .....thanx!
