i had this phone for more than a yr now.its a nice phone.stylish.smart phone.with all the features you would need.the only thing that u have to be careful of,in not drop the phone.the ribbon(the wire or whatever you call it that connects the keypad to the screen)is senstive.i had mine replaced.if the camera wont work once you press the fast key,one indication that the ribbon is already damaged.nice phone!go get one! :)
i just bought this phone last year august. and te initial symtoms of my phone is failure of camera, after a few days the screen turns into black in colour! its such a sad thing! i bought this phone for RM 1000 plus and not for one year. terrible
Please can soemone answer whether or not this phone can type an underscore when browsing I want to put my email address in and can't find it anywhere.
I previously had this fone for just over a year. Good things are its fantastic compact size, easy to use screen and the video calling / data capabilities were awesome.
Down sides were very poor battery life, needs to be recharged daily, poor audio quality from ear peice, inability to change the two home buttons (when unit is telstra branded). Extremely over priced for what it was when it was available. i paid 999 for it, now its 299 on prepaid!!
i just had this phone just over the year the handset it self is over heating and the battery suddenly drops their support is very poor it is really a waste of money investing on samsung products.
I've had this phone 16months now. Recently this signal strength has just weakened, wherever the phone is, and so it breaks up when you are on the phone and sometimes just hangs up. The charger slot cover has become lose because I've used it so many times so it does not stay in and is slightly annoying.
THe dictionary in predictive texts does not store your added words for very long, i would guess about 2 days which really annoyed me.
I do like the slide, and how it locks and unlocks when you slide it. The phone is quite slick, and nice and fits in the pocket easily. It is pretty small when it is not slid out.
Nice phone, but it has failed me recently so i've had to go back to an old nokia in the meantime till I get a new phone. I think i'll go back to the nokia's or sony ericcson's as I didn't have these problems with them.
i so agree with Nik. i own this phone for less half a year and the phone just dead on me a week ago, and i'm happily using my SE K810i at the moment. initial symptoms were failure of camera and after that the lights starts going crazy AND i can't even tell whether my phone was on the next day. 3 of my other friends who own this same phone share the same fate as me. i wonder is it something wrong with the hardware with this model or what. anyway, i will not spend my money on another samsung phone ever again, this phone sucks big time!
A really poor phone, battery, signal strength etc.
Dont waste your money
Does this phone has the 'vivid'option(3d sms) and can i select my own MP3 as a sms tone?
I have had this phone now for about 6 months and its not that bad. At the end of the day it works well as a phone. Camera is not very good but I use a phone for pictures so I don't care about this feature. The battery life is really good, and so far I have had no problems with the phone (unlike sony ericssons and nokias that constantly freeze on you and reboot when least expected). 9/10
This phone sucks, however looks nice and features are really amazing it does not work. I both it couple of monts ago and:
battery live kills me - one day
it goes to silente mode you never know and does not ringing (calls and alarms),
louspeaker also get off of cold outside and you are ouside,
camera - very pure
and what is worse kesy - no bluetooth is working with> I tested SE, Plantronics, Motorola, Samsung - a lot of drops and quality very bad

SOMEONE PLS HELP ME ME ME. i just bought the phone about 6 hours ago.

HELP ME!!!
i have this phone for about 6 months now, i have no problem with its battery, i love the camera because of its good resolution. im just sad because there is only limited message alert tones and there is no themes for this unit..help pls, u think nokia 6120 is better than this phone?
The battery started to get warmed within 3 minutes of usage, I guessed this is still an ongoing problem cos I just gotten mine 1 week ago. Of cos, after using cellphone for so many years, I have the 'feel' that this phone does get heated up easily than other models that I had used before. One thing 'special' about this phone is when charging the LCD screen won't dim off, so when you are charging at night beside your bed, you will have a 'lighting' effect. I love samsung phones but I am quite disappointed with this model.
As for U700, be prepared to get used to the sensitive touch screen if you intend to buy one.
