I am still using my Samsung SGH-U700. The U700 has two main inherent problems. The chrome finish on the front side does not last long with every user (seen it) and the flex cable inside the U700 destroys itself in everyday use in about 1,5 years (experienced it several times). The flex cable is a clear (intentional?) design shortcoming and in some countries it violates national product laws. A product should be designed so that self-destruction by normal use is not possible. However, you can watch in YouTube, how to fix the cable by yourself and continue the use of U700. If you live in Germany, you can still buy new U700 slider phones at very convenient prices.
Ah... The mighty U700... I still remember the first day I got it. I was 7 treats old back in 2007. I had to choose this or the U600. I think I made a pretty good choice.
akooblank, 20 Mar 2014Hye..anyone still using this phone?im just curios..thanksYes.i still using this phone u700.good email@example.com
Is Samsung U700 compatible with AWS networks?
In Networks Settings it says it has UMTS and as I know it's same as AWS.
Can some one help clearing this up?
This phone in Network Settings has UMTS, so Is this phone going to work for Windmobile[.ca] or Mobilicity[.ca] in Canada?
As far as I know (from Wiki) that AWS is same as UMTS Band 4.
Can some one clarify this?
