Quick question (quicker than the post before this :-P)
Does anyone know if you can set your phone to be able to see if you have a message or a missed call when the phone is closed - Unless I hear it, I have to open the phone to see if I have a msg, is there anyway to be able to show a message symbol or anything on the standby screen (like nokias and SE)
I'm new to Samsung and i'm unsure.
Any help will be appreciated.
u guys are really helpful.Well at least more helpful than those working in Samsung.I sent them a couple of email of questions regarding my newly bought Samsung U600 but they havent replied me.So maybe when u're free you could give me a little help and send me a reply on these questions to my email address?I'm really lost here.Thanks.Take your time.
1)Is it true that if I replace my original SGH-U600 690 mAH battery to a SGH-X820 1000 mAH battery,my phone will work properly and the battery will last longer?
2)The wallpaper shown on my phone in idle mode is the picture of the Kuala Lumpur Twin Tower.How is it if I do not want to show this but show maybe the Eifel Tower or the Big Apple or any scneary that has got to do with other countries.I have tried changing the Time Zone to Australia and so on but the wallpaper still remains to the Kuala Lumpur Twin Tower wallpaper.
3)How do I use Yahoo Search?First of all,where can I even find this Yahoo Search function?
4)In MY FILES,when i go into VIDEOS or MUSIC,when i click OPTIONS i notice there is something called KEY MANAGEMENT(the number 12 option for you to select once you click options)but it is always unable to be accessed.Even the same for in SETTINGS.Everytime i click on it they will say that it is empty.This goes the same for the option ACTIVATE(the number 4 option)It also cant be accesed.By the way,what is this KEY MANAGEMENT and this ACTIVATE?What are they for?
5)Does samsung have ringer profile?Meaning,i would sometimes be outdoor and i will want my phone to ring loud and vibrate.Sometimes I am in a theathre and I do not want my phone to be completely silent but I do not want it to ring either so if by just having the vibration would do good.Then sometimes when I am in a meeting and cant answer calls at all,I would want to switch the profile to be completely silent.How do i do these?From what I see here,I can only choose between Normal mode(which is loud and vibrate) or Silent...OR it is Normal mode or Vibrate.Can't I have all 3??
6)When my picture files are stored in my memory card,I cant browse thru pictures while I am in Full screen mode(like left and right).But,when the pictures are stored in the phone,I can do so.There will be an arrow up there where I can straight away click right to view to the next picture but when it is in memory card,I have to quit full screen mode,go to the other picture and click on it again etc etc.Why is this happening?
7)When I type my messages,there will be a very irritating sound.To disable the sound I have to lower the volume key till it is zero.But then everytime I do so,when I use the camera mode,there will be no sound.then i have to quit the camera mode and on the volume again then go back in camera mode again and take pictures.Then after taking pictures I have to lower the volume back to zero again.Is there another way?
8)In camera settings,what does EXPOSURE MATERING and MACRO means?
9)Why are most of the games in JAVA WORLD in demo version??
10)Why doesn't the smart search function search files in the memory card as well?
11)When in idle mode,I can see on my top left corner near the signal bar there is an alphabet E sometimes G.Why does it always change?
12)Is it possible for me to watch TV programs or anything with this phone through either GPRS or EDGE or whatever?
13)How does the uTrack function works?Where can I even access this function?
14)How do I sort my music files by NAME.Now it only sorts by DATE as in the latest file I receive will be placed at the top list but I want it to be sorted by NAME.
15)Do you have the UNLOCKING CODE for the game TETRIS in JAVA WORLD?It is only in DEMO VERSION.Or do you have any other codes for the other demo games there.
26)You said here that:
Itís well know that the battery life of the Samsung U600 isnít great. Here is a little trick that helps to improve the battery life.
Use it only when you donít use gprs!
When you slide your phone up, enter this code: *#4777*8665#
This will appear on the screen like this: *#4777*óĖ
Then, a secret menu will show up. Go to the option GPRS Detach and click it. Next you will have to wait some time (eg 5 seconds)
and get the message: GPRS Detach cofirm
Thatís all! Your stand-by time has increased with 20% now!
Is this true?Will it work?Will this really help save my battery life?And is it safe to do so?After disabling this does it mean I cant access GPRS anymore??
@ The guy with the Bluetooth earphones question.
A)Yes this phone can play music using bluetooth Stereo Single headsets or Bluetooth Stereo Dual Headsets.
To install java games. http://forum2.mobile-review.co...php?p=560238
A)Yes you can play music and txt, multitasking is doable on this phone.
A)numberpad is not touch sensitive, only top 4 buttons on the phone are. The keys aint like the E900. But feels almost as good. If you want keys like E900 u should buy a Samsung U700.
jad/jar, dont seem to work on u600! tried earlier, but to.. D500 i think.. same .jar..
any other who knows a site escapially made for u600? if theres any site like that yet! :)
ur right, the phone SHOULD be able to multitask - using both music and other functions!
my old K610 works fine multitasking, and most of later SE-phones dont have problem playing music while doing other stuff..
Dont think so.. but maybe i missed some "hidden menu" that allows u to multitask between music and menues.. hmm?
This might interest you! don't know if its compatible though
hmm tats nt so gd huh?ive seens phones u could keep music goin while go into msg menu, type or send msg.overall music shud b playin while u wana do watever u wan wit d fon right? a lil bit to perfection? hehe
U600 is a amazing phone and they are avaliable in UK FREE contract and Phone as well , I bought it through a website called www.citimove.co.uk check it out !
as i said earlier, thats a load of b.........
cause batteries today wont be affected the same way as they were 3-5 years ago (when u had to charge for a good 16h first time for the battery to maintain its stamina..)
Ive charged mine - first time for 3-4h.. today is my 2nd day of usage, still full batterycapacity!! In this time ive called a lot, using BT-earpice (BT-mode drains the battery quicker), played some games, txting etc..!
right, then u shouldnt have any probs using this phone.. some people just exaderate the unfriendly usage of the keypad.. it isnt that bad at all, could be much worse :)
answer #1, YES - it do support wireless BT headset, myself i use the plantronics discovery - works great with god stamina!
Ofcourse this isnt for playing music, but ive heard that the u600 also should support the few "music BT headsets" that is out there.
question #2 - MAYBE, havent tried that myself.. but wait.. NO i cant get it to work that way.. cant get into root-menu when music is in play.. maybe its different when ure in "flightmode" ?
Strange.. because u can use the phone normaly when ur in a call, why shouldnt u be able to use it when music is in play (??)
Anyway - it DOES support BT-music-headset, i just took a check on the settings!
i m waiting when gsmarena will review this fone.its look like they have ignored this
In order to maximize your battery life, charge it initially for about 12 hours and from then onwards, do full charges. don't charge the battery when its only 40% empty or so. let it drain out first until you get a message in your phone to charge the battery. keep doing that for the first 10 charging cycles. you will get the best out of your battery
haha cool najks i duno if im big bt im 186cm tall i guess thats normal?my hands arent reli big tho but then anyway thx for the info..nw thrs 2 more question....ONE,does it support bluetooth wireless earphone music playing? TWO, does it continue to play music when you wana go do other things?
thats a load of b......
todays batteries will dont be affected by shorter chargingtime! cause of the batterytype, mah and "chargefunction"
wont matter if u charge it 5 or 25h - as long as u see that its fully charged!!
You should definitely charge for 16 hours. It makes a huge difference. Otherwise your battery will likely die within a few months.
voice recording, video capturing unlimited duration or not?(i mean as far as the memory can store big chunks)like SE K750!
Thank u :)
