i am about to buy the D500... i found out that the silver D500 is much cheaper than the black one, am I missing something? does anybody know about any difference between the two? thank you
Me also have the same problem within the gprs and mms setting? Anyone can help?
I have the same problem with my GPRS and MMS but apart from that I find that the D500 is a fantastic phone. The features are brilliant and although not vastly different from the E800 the enhancements are noticeable in a good way. Takes a little bit of getting used to if you have not had a Samsung before.
the only downside is d500 has external and not internal speaker and who'll do these kind of thing to connect the tiny speaker?the sound of the zoom is terrible(try to record first n then zoom to get rid of those annoying noise.
i have some problems connecting to gprs or mms. everytime i try to connect to gprs its says error: connection to server lost and if i try to send an mms its say cannot connect to server. all my settings are correct and i'm wondering if anyone else have the same problem???
as far as i know you can record only 15 minutes max on it. but i would suggest you guys or girls read first or have the knowledge of the phone then buy it
I was wondering if someone could please help me with the phone.
In relation to the camera, isn't there suppose to be 5 shutter sounds? Is so how do I change the volume of the shutter cause mine is so loud at the moment.
Also I thought we could record up to 60 minutes of video. Does anyone know why my videos get deleted automatically everytime I move a new video to the my videos section?
Thanks in advance.
i have a few questions about this phone if anyone could help.
it's unlocked and i can't access the internet. i tried various codes but it says "error: cannot resolve hostname." how can i resolve this?
also, is there a program that i can edit mp3's on so that it just rings a part of a song?
finally, my bluetooth was working fine with transferring files from my computer but all of a sudden a message says that files cannot be transferred. i have enough memory, the computer and phone are connected, and i didn't change anything. help?
can you zoom the pictures in the downloaded images? and how? and does anyone know if it's possible to create a new folder in the images? tnx.
I bought it a few days ago. I'm happy now, camera is good enought, mp3 player works good, Irda and bluetooth too and i could find anything similar for that price. I can say it's perfect for me
hi..im from india and D 500 is just now entering the market here.can anyone tell me if D 500 is very good as far as the blue tooth and camera are concerned? can data be transfered to and from all phones to D 500 ? because i bought a Samsung C 100 and the infrared was a biig looser...
i've just purchased the d500 and here's my quick review.
+color screen is wonderful
+bluetooth works fine and dandy
+sliding mechanism is smooth
+photo caller ID assignments
+quick to charge to full
+sound is clear
-directional keys are too small, especially up and down
-must go thru too man subsections before getting to destination (ex: sms messaging)
-t9 doesn't show other word options, you have to scroll without seeing other options
-slight delay in text messaging
-odd resizing of pics
-doesnt' vibrate and ring at the same time
overall i'm very happy with this phone. i'm aware that the d600 is on its way but i didn't notice any worthwhile upgrades that made it significantly superior. satisfied.
The sliding mechanism is pretty sturdy, I play with it all the time just for the hell of it.
The d500 is one of the best around with video and all u will need in a fone,and it so elegant but have got a prob with mine it does not work in my house but it works outside my house and elsewhere,anyone got this problem.really enjoying the mp3.
soon, d510, d550 and d600.
d510 is d500 with external memory - comming out mid-July
d550- i cannot tell you yet.
d600 is a whole new model.2mp cam, QVGA lcd, external memory card support, video background etc etc...will be out September or November
I think it is a very good phone and you must be mentally ill to not figure out how to download files onto our phone from your computer, you could just use the bluetooth dongle, also it comes with a sweat exterior speaker the inhances the sound greatly. It's main competetor is motorola e398
Had mine for a month the slider is feeling alot looser compared to when i brought it. I dont like it i prefer the 6230 for its functionality only problem is the 6230 echoed all the time when i was taking calls with it so i upgraded. The D500 has very jerky video especially when your indoors so if you're at a club and you wanna get some video futage of sumin funny, it wont be worth it. MP3 with 96MB yes good quality cant fault it although you can get 128MB MP3 players brand new now for £30. Bluetooth wouldnt connect to my pc's bluetooth dongle so i wasn't happy with that especially since the 6230 did the bluetooth job very well. Battery on D500 very poor 1-2 days tops 2 days if you dont use it that much 1 day if you do.
I must add i dont like the way the camera takes pictures. Once you take a picture the camera saves it as if you was standing about 1 metre away the colours looked washed out reds just dont seem red enough no colors look full and you can only use the zoom at 640x480 res it wont let u zoom in any higher. But i guess ill just keep it till another phone is released with all these features but does them alot better.
i'm very :((((
