Iam not happy with this device not support 8gb sd card $ no good after sail servises in Tehran - Iran.
I just gave up this phone for Nokia E66. I think this phone is the crappiest I have ever used. Here's why:
1. The touch screen din do it for me. I struggle when making urgent sms etc as I have to really be accurate on typing or else 95% of teh time I will be typing wrong button.
2. For business folks, the phone cannot synch properly with MS Outlook. It will report as network error. This is my biggest beef.
3. This takes the cake. I am a heavy notes user. Get this ... the phone limits the number of characters on each note to 100 and limits the number of notes you can keep to 20! Watsup with that. I can go forever in any Nokia phone as far as notes goes.
4. When I try to file my sms in my created personal folders, some sms for some reason just creepingly go back to my Inbox everytime I switch on back the phone. Another superb magic trick by Samsung.
5. The camera quality sucks big time and its 5 Mega pixel! What utter rubbish.
6. The edge of the casing are prone to scratching. Dont believe pls check yr phone after 3 months putting it in yr pocket unprotected together with yr keys and other objects.
-got this phone for almost 3 months now.
-everything's great! as i am not a fan of smartphones, this phone is a simple basic functioning 5mp cam phone with touch screen.
-tech junkies will be somewhat disappointed as to the limited software enhancements, compared to S60 software phones.
-but the feel of the phone in my hand is great, materials feels expensive due the liberal use of steel.
-mistake of samsung was the 265k color screen and lack of wifi. this would be perfect if they put a 16m color screen and wifi.
this is the first time im being so frustrated with samsung..
this phone is such a rubbish
i have wasted so much money that i could had bought far more better phone that this one
who ever have an intention to get this phone..might think twice.because it is not as good as you are expected.
I'm looking for a phone. It is so important for me to buy a beautiful phone & i decide to buy this very good looking phone, but there is something that I do not know. Can I install a Java programs on this phone, I know that it does not have any OS, but what about Java Programs. Please someone answer my question

Darkanian, 10 Oct 2008Can you view YouTube Movies on it?yes you can. however the 12 button key pad interface lags a lot and i m finding i am often missing buttons or mispressing
the Samsung F480 arrived for Telstra customers today.
It is now abble to use the HSDPA 850MHz frequency- something that isn't updated on this website- but is updated on the samsung website.
the phone's UI is really sluggish, and although the manufacturer's site says that the F480 can read office documents- i am yet to find any means of doing so

An all around phone but with a competitive price. It has all the functionality (almost)that one will ever need in a mobile phone. I've been a Nokia user for several years now and this is the first time that I'm using a Samsung. No problem with the phone so far and I'm quite satisfied with its performance.
Have had this phoone for a week and think it's really good. Love the size, and the big screen, its my first samsung too and quite happy so far. Music player is good, browsing the web esp with opera mini is amazingly fast. Plays movies brilliantly! Battery is a little disapointing wiht heavy use but aren't all phones. has not dropped any calls to date. only problem is i can't figure out how to setup and use rss reader, can't even find it on the phone. Any help? Other than that totally recommend this handset.
Hi. I've got the tocco, and I'm really happy with it. One annoying thing though, I've added some words to the T9 dictionary, and now they come up first when texting. They come ahead of common words, like 'and' or 'to', and is VERY annoying. How can I remove these added words?
Wow!!!! Interesting comments! I am about to upgrade my contract and phone... I believe this comment page is 50/50. It can either really help you make up your mind, or totally put you off!! My first option is the Samsung i900. But then I heard of this phone (Samsung F480),and decided to have a look!!
An I have just made up my mind!!! After reading all the comments!
I am taking the Samsung i 900! Eventhough the price range is over the top, I am taking it!! For anyone deciding on a new phone, do yourself a favour, go the website, and read ALL the comments (Good and Bad).
There's no better way to get the answers you want, than to go to those that has the phone!
Know I will be happy with my i 900!!
