how can i install jad files in this mobile? any body plez ....
For incoming calls and SMS, can this Z170 vibrate and ring at the same time. I had older models which cannot do so.
you can change the message tone with mp3 files:
go to phone profiles, choose options then edit. press the right navigator to move to the message settings tab. choose message alert tone, select change and select "use my alert tone". from there, you can browse your files of mp3s that we want to set as your message tone. remember to save settings/changes before you exit.
Samsung SGH Z170 review
- Obviously one of the slimmest 3G phone on the market - style is subjective but I must say this phone looks sleek and cool.
- The overall form is great, disappears easily to your shirt's pocket although I wouldn't suggest to put it in your jeans.
- Very simple and yet effective trick, the red back panel looks very stylish.
- The keypad is large and easy to use, the buttons are clear with the white back light.
- The screen is great, enough color and brightness even under the sun.
- Speakerphone is facing forward - well done.
- The screen is rather narrow, but with the price tag it came with, I think we must compromise on this one.
- Didn't came with a memory card. Extra budget for us...
- There's no 2,5mm jack or converter included, so I have to forget playing this thing to my car stereo.
- The space button is on the # button. For a phone this slim, it's easy to slip and drop your phone.
- Back panel is not the easiest to open. Opening fels like you're gonna brake the whole thing.
Capabilities & Functions
- 3G. Obviously. I enjoyed the video calls very much. Haven't tried for TV streaming.
- Periodical sms alert really helps when you missed one. Simple but effective.
- The Living World screen. It's awesome. The sky looks clear when you have full signal. Some clouds when signal is low and dark cloudy sky when no signal. Also the sky is dark at night and bright in the morning. The name says it all - Living World. Even for a business guy like me this feature is too fun to miss!
- Synchronizes well with Outlook. If you're a business person this will come handy at times.
- Offline mode.
- 1000 phonebook + SIM, 500 sms and plenty of room for e-mails.
- Google browser and mail works great.
- Speakerphone works great. And the ringtones are so loud, including for sms. I wonder where those guys complain about the sms ringtone being too slow - you have to use the 'my alert' and not just 'effect'. No problem at all.
- Call reject list. This is a great tool when you have people with hidden caller ID trying to annoy you.
- Won't read first names from phonebooks (Whast were they thinking?). Darn, I had to convert all of the names on my old phonebook. Only took 5 minutes to take care though.
- Can't change sms alert to WAV or MP3.
- Calendar memory is too small, I used a PDA before and it won't synchronize all calendar events. Too bad!
- Can't serve as a 'plug and play' mass storage to a PC.
- It crashed my laptop when unplugging after synchronizing. Hmm, what did I do wrong?!
- Design is awesome.
- Meets your daily functions: sms, calendar, calls, web browsing, camera and camcorder, mp3, you name it.
- Battery lasts almost as advertised with normal use.
- Price!!! It's really cheap!
- No Operating System. Couldn't really tweak this baby to do anything else but what it said it should do.
- Signal is a bit low inside buildings without in door transmitters.
- Looks a bit feminine.
It's simple yet effective! So if you're concerned about budget then this phone is for you.
For those looking for phones that are smart, give it a break, just get a PDA!

i got this Phone nd its cool!!!! its aviable in spain since april here and when i bought it i try to search in the net an i didnt find it.. i thought it was a prototipe or something like that.......well i prefer the k610i, this is only to look cool.....
I think Samsung made a cheap phone with umts, this is a goal for the midlle class phones. Thats why is using basic features.
For a low end 3G phone 1.3 Mpix camera is perfect. Remember that many phones still use 0.3 Mpix ones.
