I have had one of these for 2 years and it is the best phone that I have owned. I upgraded to the newer version and ended up selling that and returning to my trusty 500.
A great phone, long battery life and just the right weight with a great sliding action.
BEST FONE had it for 2 years and has not broken (even been thrown against walls)
I have had mine for two years and, in my opinion, its the best, tightest bundle there is. Correct weight and fits beautifully in the palm of my hand. The sliding action of this phone is engineering art. No fumbling as in the clam shell. Navigation is logical and is quick to master. 1.3megapix camera still does the trick for reference shots.
I drowned it accidentally in VB(Australian beer)one hot morning and thought I had killed it. Panic naturally set in as I thought of the time consuming consequences losing all those numbers would bring about. Now I have A Motorola v9....and miss my D500 terribly.
i bought mine in london in 2005 and still using the phone till now. just a few minor scratches but this phone is great and love it very much.
I love this phone.Had mine 2 years ago and its still in tip top shape.Just a few minor scratches but durability wise... its one of the best.
I have had this phone for 3 years now and it's simply UN-BE-LIEVE-ABLE
hi pipol! wud lyk to ask how to use/activate the speaker fon of the d500. i don't hav the user manual wid me. thanx...
the design of this fone is fashionable and nice.. but the problem that i encounter is that the fone can't accept .jar / .jav application.. another thing is that it can't accept wav file.. pls. to those who are using this fone.. email me if you are experiencing this problem also..
best fone iv had by far, wouldnt mind the up grand to the samsung D600.
i had this phone for almost 4 years, and it works really nice. the features are so fashionable, and it looks so cool. i can't hang around with my friends without bringing this phone. I really love it.. but i want another pohne right now. It want something that is more on features and memory. thanksss so much..... i had a great experience with this phone. its fashionable!
okay,i had this phone and as a phone to get after it goes... DEFINATLY get the samsung U600. brilliant phone ckeck it out o this site i have written loadz about it except its under the name pinkblaze
highly recommend both samsung U600 and D500!!
I've had this phone for a year and it's a nice phone, pretty and works really nice, but there are new phones with more features than this, i had a nice experience with it but now i want another one with a better resolution and more memory. Actually this model has already been discontinued in my country.
I had this phone since December 2005 and now I don't have it. Got stolen this weekend...sucks! I can say it's been the greatest phone I've ever had. I've tried many other brands: Motorola, Nokia, LG, Siemens, etc and none have performed as the Samsung SGH-D500. Now I have to buy a new phone and I will stick with Samsung. My main problem now is finding one that will be as good or better that the D500. Looking into the D900, U600 and U700.
its a good phone but it does have problems .. i dropped it so often that the display screen got stuffed .. cost me like 100 dollars to fix it .. so i wouldnt say its the best phone but its a good phone
I've had this phone since March 2005, and it's still running like brand new. I've dropped it SOOOOO many times, and it still works fine. I was even twirling it on my finger via the wrist strap, the strap breaks, and my phone goes flying a good 10-15 feet and tubles to a halt on the cement with no issues. Very durable. The screen only now is getting tiny scratches from my coin pocket, but it doesn't mess with the visibility of the screen.
I've been using it in the USA as well, and my overall reception is awesome. I just newly acquired a k800i so this phone is going in the back up phone box. It'll be missed, but it was time for something new.
I would suggest this phone to anyone. It's great, and really lasts over the years.
People are right when they say this phone is almost indestructable. i've had this phone for 3 years and dropped it on concrete floors and hit it on hard objects so many times but there's barely even a scratch! i've never had a problem with this phone. the only problem i've had is with my stupid phone company. for those of you who do have problems with it, its probably a defect or something must have happened to it....but i love this phone so much, i don't know what new phone i can get to replace it...
Bought one when they just came out. Fantastic phone. Never had any problem. Still going stroung. Highly recommend.
ELLA- can i just say...seeing as you phone is thrord hand...no wonder its so samshed up! its not samsungs falut the buttons dotn work and the spring is broken! it must of SERIOSLY smashed around to break it like that! D500 is an incredibly strong phone so dont put a downer on it just because you got a crap one!!!
