Just ordered mine from 02, they told me it had just come out today.
They also said it may be delivered 2moro which would def be a bonus!
Will let you know how i get on.
I've just got one of these on orange contract today. haven't had much chance to play yet, but texting seems fine to me using T9 predictive, its just as easy as a normal phone. its no harder or easier than qwerty on lg viewty, and to be honest if you had a qwerty on this phone it would be far too small to use properly. I think samsung made the right decision
Well, typing without T9 is really pain, when you are used to sending messages all the time.. And qwerty is very useful, makes it faster and, what is important for me, i dont have pain in my thumbs then. so some of us are no lazy, but its just more convenient.
Why does everyone care about not having a qwerty virtual keypad?
I've been texting since I had an old Nokia on Mercury one2one and I still use plain old fashioned text, none of this T9 crap. Stop being so lazy!
does anyone knows how it works to geht google maps on the f480?
if i had some maps on the phone i wont need any gps... with that big display it would be very nice to have some maps, if i dont the way or sth....
Yes, you CAN set mp2 message tones... I also work for O2 and we have had Samsung in demonstrating their latest handsets (Soul, F480, F400, etc.) and they have listened to customer feedback and concluded that ALL future handsets after and including the U900 Soul CAN have mp3 message tones.
This is out on o2 on 26th May. I work for them and have our standard upgrade matrix in front of me, it is free on 18 month contracts on £35+ tariffs. It is free on 12m contracts on £40+ tariffs. If you already have a contract with o2 and want to buy the handset you can do for £259.99.
I was wondering if someone could answer me a question;
Can you customize the widgets in the main screen? Not like take one off and put another on but actually download different widgets from the internet (similar to what you can do on a pc or the endless customizations you seem to be able to do on the iphone). It seems stupid to have like 8 widgets to choose from and thats it, and from what i have heard thats what its going to be like. Other than that great phone, cant wait to try one.
Just found out that this accepts SD cards up to 8GB!!!
I think LG Viewty is far superior. There is no virtual qwerty which does not make any sense.
Is it just me or is Samsung following LG now a days.. with Armani after Prada and this 5MP touch after Viewty?
nice phone but need to be more advanced about SMS.try to find out some unique technology to happy your customer
Depending on which ountry you reside in and how much you earn, 3G is better. Its lighter on the battery. Wider coverage and better for on the move surfing. Of course for those who don't have access to 3G, or don't want to pay for an unlimited data plan, WiFi is better. Me? I have 3G and have access to unlimited data plans. So WiFi isn't an issue.
So funny everybody yells no wifi, but 9 out of 10 doesn't need it...
samsung phs come to singapore quite first. should be in one month time. Anyway, No WiFi means not a phone for me :(. But I really like the design and flash UI.
Anyone else than me that misses a 3,5 mm headphone jack? I would really see Samsung add one.
dudes and dudets looks at the first page of GSMarena, theres like 8 samsung reviews and a samsung in the news? you guys seeing it
can gsm arena pls tell us if we can set MP3 as SMS tone? that's a major drawback for me with Samsung phones... pls tell me. thanks!
