Great Fone! great capailities, screen quality is unreal! Pc Studio accessary rocks!
great looking mobile phone that is simple to use, great camera and great screens (both) however i have read a few of the other comments and yes it does take a while to send a msg however instead of using the actual send button you can simply press the middle circle button which skips all the other mumbo jumbo...to a degree. lol Is a good phone, cool video calls as well :D
you are wrong where in the manual does it say charge it initially for 16 hours you are just feeding people bad advice
You are disappointed with the battery as per your statement - you should have followed my advice. Regardless it is Lithium or Nickel - initial charging should be 16 hrs and you'll be happy.
But it's up to you just do what you think is right. It's just my 1 cent advice.
Can anyone plz tell me how can i change the message tone, what i see that i just can choose from 3-4 tones!!
Just got one of the unlocked TIM phones and I am impressed. Got to be the lightest 3G phone around and works great as a USB modem on the 3G vodafone network. Extend battery life by switching off UTMS when not needed. Highly recommended phone
I think it is a good phone just like all samsung phones, however on the d600 you cant have anything for your message tone, you only get about 10 to choose from. On my nokia I had you can personalise it to something you have downloaded, if you get what I mean?...
I have just gotten a d600 recently but decided i'm not a big fan of the slide, i was thinking about changing to the z510 because i like flips.
So from what i've read, it CAN ring and vibrate at the same time which is good, but can you play an mp3 in the background?
eg listen to an mp3 while sending an sms?
Mate this is a LITHIUM battery - get with the times!
Lithium batteries do not have memory, and therefore you do not have to 'set' the memory in the initial charge. Where did you get '16' hours from? Why 16? Where in the manual does it offer this advice?
Welcome to the 21st century!
I was initially disappointed with the z510's battery life - but since then it's been great. Must have been all the games and photos I was playing around with!
There is nothing wrong with the phone. The battery works perfectly as long you charged it 16 hrs (first initial charging). Most of us here are quite excited to sue the phone after we bought it from the shop. Well I don't - I will always make sure that I charged the battery properly so I can enjoy using the phone without any hiccups.
I have been a Nokia and SE person for quite a long time. First time that I have decided to buy a different brand which is not that popular name when it comes to mobile phones. Truly, I was amazed of the features, realibility and the durability of this phone. Samsung phones are not far behind when it comes to technology compared to Nokia, Motorola and SE.
Buy a new battery and make sure you charge your battery for 16 hrs before using them.
I received this phone from O2 few days ago, first impression is very good, it is a high quality phone and yes it is the slimmest 3G unit so far. My only problem is the battery life, according to Samsung's official figures it should last 8 days in stand-by mode, My phone runs out of charge after a day and a half only. It could be a battery issue but I find it dissapointing. I may have to replace it with a SE w810. Sony have astonishing battery life, I experienced this with a K750i
I like Samsung phones I prefer it to Nokia I think Samsung phones are durable (feature packed) and pretty to look at and I don't see the Z510 being any different its a pity my service provider refuses to stock any of the "latest" Samsung's so when upgrade time comes I'll most likely take the z500 the z130 is too big plus I want a flip but hopefully they'll have more then just 2 3g phones(Samsung) available by the next 2-3 months doubtful though
Hi as you may have deduced I don't have the z510 but most of the Samsungs are basically the same where something's are concerned so bear in mind some discrepancies on this particular model this might fix u messaging problem go to msg then go to settings then go to text msg current profile there's normally two the one is your service providers the other is just setting 2 or nr whatever that's usually been the problem when I couldn't sms anybody
MESSAGE ALERT VOLUME TOO QUIET?
I've seen quite a few posts about the message alert volume being too quiet if you use a special tone.
For some strange reason, it seems that the Z510 slowly ramps the volume up over a few seconds when using a mmf file for the tone. Obviously if you're only using a short tone it will be over before the volume reaches maximum. The answer is to insert a few seconds of silence at the beginning of your file.
Not a very elegant solution and rather wasteful of memory, but it does get over the problem!
Hope this helps.
if anyone knows could you tell me how many messages this phone can hold in the inbox please? thanks!
Rob: Press the volume button on the phones side, this will flip the picture.
Cassandra: This is most likely something on your account. Call up your service provider and get them to set it up/send you the settings
This phone has good featured but is the 140 MB memory space enough?
Can it actually record 60 mins of video given that it has limited space.
Also has anyone tried using the document veiewer? How easy is it to use can you edit the file or is it just for viewing?
