I'm almost convinced of buying this phone. Just one last consideration:
In the demo unit that I used in the Samsung store, I felt that the upper back part of the phone heats up after just a few minutes of use. I tried all its features including internet browsing and the camera. Im not sure what could have caused it to get warm.
Could anybody please share your thoughts on this potential "heat issue" ?
Thanks in advance!
How do i set the automatic tracking in case my unit got lost? How will i change the video duration longer than 16 sec?
yes it has a phone lock & you can individually lock all the features, ie messages, contacts, files. Also has an overall phone or/and sim lock so it wont turn on unless you enter the pin.
Yes mem card
Music files need to be mp3, otherwise it will say 'unsupported action'
fantastic phone, full & fast internet cant fault it at all. Batteries doesnt last long with heavy usage but you just need to charge it every few days to keep it going. One of my best purchases in a long time!
is there any built in flash @ this phone, Guys?
Please help me out ;)
how's the battery in this phone?is it like all the other samsungs...charge every other two days?
Hi all lot of info please read may assist.
No this phone does not have a keyboard lock.
It does have a call barring facility this can stop incoming outgoing voice data and video calls check manual.
In phone its in Menu > Settings >  Call >  Barring
In the manual it states it is a service provider function and you will have to get the password from in Australia I'm with Telstra.
Be Warned I've taken over 5 hours talking to telstra 3 to get it going and after working for a week it locked the bar on SMS MMS and Telstra and the other two to get the sms and mms going again.
Telstra in Australia claim they know their network well I do not agree as this phone's barring is done at the exchange not in the phone, only two people I got on to know this, the second was the tech whom gave me a new password from the exchange as the network for some reason rejected the original code.
The phone is well fairly good however the service providers claim all functions are phone based and they will not belive they or the network is at fault they say this without reading the manual if they do then they start to very slowly get the message.
It should have a simple phone lock like nokia's or even the motorolla v3 has a phone lock that you have to enter a code before you can acess the keypad, this phone has sort of similar but is a real pain as you have to enter the password every time you want to do a different job, or call a number and stops all incoming calls, and outgoing.
The call barring facility can just stop all outgoing calls and is a better option but be warned as above.
Telsra and the majority of its employees do not know how this feature works, they may try to get you to call samsung I did for three ours and talked to their head tech, about this problem and he said I had to get a four digit password from my service provider as stated in the manual, they do not have a simple or any keylock facilities I even suggested the do a flash upgrade for users wom want to have this facility they won't.
Hope this helps.
I may be able to give some help but please be patient as the email address is not my primary one and i only check it once a month or so.
i bought this phone a while ago but cant seem to put music on my phone. can anyone help me and tell me how to do it? when i try and send it to the phone it says operation not supported.could someone tell me why its not working? thanx
Can you view time, date, missed calls etc on the front screen or does the display go black after a few seconds?
You can bluetooth the contacts directly from your old Samsung phone to the new one
Does anyone know if this phone has a keypad lock feature? The feature locks the phone so it cant be used whilst its on. Its still accepts calls and messages, but the menu's, calling people and reading messages etc are not allowed until u enter the unlock code on the screen. Does this feature exist in this phone? Does anyone know of any other phones that have this feature? Its just that my annoying little brother is always going thru my phone and reading my messages etc and sending random pics to my mates... Aaaargh!
My boyfriend had this phone and it was ok, but then he found that the sound just dropped out if he used it alot, no call alerts, or sms alerts, keypad tones, etc...which meant he missed alot of important calls, he had to turn it off and back on again to get the sound back. He took it back and the same thing happened with the replacement phone, has anyone else had this problem???
Can someone please help me? I had a D500 before my Z560. I backed up all my contacts on my PC and when I got my Z560 I wanted to copy it all back to my Z560 but can't access my contacts on my Z560 through PC Studio. What can I do?
I think this is a really nice phone and would recommend it to anyone who's looking for fast internet connectivity. Pity about the battery life.
hey im thinking of buying this phone... what does HSDPA stand for and does it come in a full black colour or only the one thats shown in the picture of the blog....
samsung batteries sucks ass ! last 2 days!
dont buy SAMSUNG! batteries are down!
For those who are interested to know about this phone, it is being used by the trialists of M1 Singapore, the 1st mobile phone operator in the country to roll out the 3.5G HSDPA there and Samsung had sponsored the Z560 for them to test it out.
There is this interesting and pretty comprehensive evaluation by one of their trialist who has blogged his experience on the Z560.
He or she is even comparing with Nokia N70 and there are other interestings facts like Bluetooth, memory card, etc. Cool !
Seems that he or she is adding more before the trial ends in mid January.
