I find the process to download MP3 files from my computer to the D500 via a USB cable very tedious with the Easy Studio and D500 Handset programs provided with the phone. After a week of trying to get it to work, the phone can still not download MP3 via the cable, and seem to use only .MIDI or .mff files as ringtones. Please give me advise on how to get this process to work. Thank you.
ANyone can confirm whether USB cable (generic manufacturer) for Samsung E820 also can be used on D500? Thanks!!!
To view the .3gp files, u can use real player 10, but u will need to download the codec for that filetype.
The video format of most phones nowadays can be played back in regular Quicktime players.
Including the d-500.
So are the photos and videos taken on this phone not very good? Have got a 6230 but thinking of getting this phone.
Hi.. when videoing using D500, it is saved in a format with extension .3gp right..? Anyone know whether wad player can i use to view my videos..? thanks..
hey does this phone use MMS card like the nokia 6230 use MMC card? I can buy MMS cards to d'l music onto?
To the person that said it makes sounds each time you confirm anything. This can be changed with the settings. Check your manual.
Hey Folks!!! Can you help me ??. I am a bit confused as to go for which handset. D500 or Nokia 3230. Which one is better camera?? And also functionwise?? Will appreciate your comments. Thnx.
i have had this phone for about a week now got to say first of all i'm not impressed with the camera quality for 2 reasons really, (1 the colours look washed out, even on my 6230 the colours are brighter and vivid and (2 when you capture a picture and it displays it on screen the phone saves the picture as if you were standing back about 5 feet away from the subject thus the picture looks smaller once taken compared to what you see on the view finder before you take the picture. Video is clearer than on the 6230 but unfortunately they are more jerky than 6230. Infrared and bluetooth is very good works every time. Bluetooth is especially good on d500 as you can browse files in another persons phone from the D500 and choose what files you want to take while browsing unlike Nokia where you can only send and receive but not browse files. This means the D500 is very good for criminal endeavours such as bluetooth jacking should you choose to take up this opportunity. Not that i condone or encourage it!
Phone is good but not ground breaking there are still a good few problems that need to be ironed out i.e D500 seems to have a bug when you disconnect from bluetooth. It will turn off and reboot before it allows you to fully turn off bluetooth, this happens more than less about 7 out of 10 times. Also ringing volume starts of low then goes to normal pitch when you get a call. Phone also makes anoying unnecessary noise every time you confirm a opperation such as when you save, or turn off or on any function or, lock and unlock or press yes or no. Not a phone to be using in the office or a library or if you basicly just want to be discreet which is quite ironic as the call volume starts of almost undetectable when you need to hear it for a vast amount of rings before you can hear it. Other than that its a good phone but is over hyped because of its style and looks and becuase it is a slide out phone. If it never was a slide phone but instead in a standard Samsung candy bar form it would not be so popular.
nice phone.was gonna buy it until i came across Nokia 6260.Omg.another wonderful phone that is.

i just got this phone but i dont know how to get mp3 songs in it.. help??

Samsung D500 is probably the nicest phone out there, well in my opinion, first samsung phone with bluetooth ( and you thought bluetooth was only for motorolas ) well anyway i was jealous that a couple of my friends had the slider phone for tmobile so i was looking for a better one, and I found the d500, but for how much? $40!!! no lie, only thing it took about 3 weeks for me,
but 3 weeks+$40 is well worth waiting for.. than paying $500+
the camera quality is really nice 1.3 megapixels and the speakerphone is loud unlike my old v600, and comparing motorola to samsung, the samsung doesn't lag AT ALL, so a much smoother use. I could talk about this phone all day but u guys probably all kno about it too.if you want to kno how to get this phone for the same price I did, you can email me at email@example.com.
hi...i'll surely be bying me one soon...believe it or not,it's small,plays mp3's and the picture quality is great...what is the biggest memory card you can get for it. does any 1 know?
i have bought a samsung d500 almost 2 months ago and till now it didn't restart,i have no words for it, only thing that bothers me itz the lack of a memory card slot but in rest its worth the money, every thing, pictures,sound quality,signal quality,design is at max in this litle phone
