I just got this phone on Vodafone with 500 mins and Free Weekend Calls for £25 per month for 6 months, plus a half price SE BT headset. The phone is great quality, the only thing it marjorly lacks is voice dialing. There are other really small annoying things too like no ring+vibrate concurrently, can't change text size of menus, low customisation features (visually). But no phone is perfect, and this is certainly one of the very best out there at the mo.
The phone itself was ok, then after a few weeks the LCD display leaked without the phone being dropped. After sending it through the proper channels I got a email after more than 6 weeks that the phone could be repaired for 204 euros. This repair will not be under guarantee because when you but it, you automatically agree to there guarantee terms.
The European consumer protection law from 2003 states that products which show a defect within the first 6 months are expected to have had this defect when it was bought. The vendor then has to prove that the defect was caused by the user.
You can guess the reply from Samsung!!
After this experience I will never ever buy any Samsung product ever again!!
guys, i just bought this phone and i like it a lot but got one problem tho...where is the USB port at and where can u get the cable? it says it has USB port but the one on the right side is not a USB. Can someone help me on that? Thx
can anyone clear up weather the vibrate works with the ring at the same time???
have just bought 2 of these phones d500!!! one for the mrs one for me,going on what everyone is saying i've made a good choise!!!o2 have a great offer of £30 per month sim only 400mins 1000 texts!!!!!and i bought the phones for £216 on e-bay so have a look at 02's sim only tarifs and e-bay for the phones.
got it a week ago. pretty great phone. my battery lasted for a while. didnt die on me on the first day. i just kept on charging it. when it says full, i unplug the charger and plug it back in. and it keeps on charging. did it for a few hours. havent had any problems with this phone yet.
hey its bob again. glad to know its a good phone. what games has it got and what can you download? i heard it has millionaire?
had it for 2 weeks now and its the best phone ever. beats the SE s700 anyday. amazing pics and video quality and the zoom is spot on. memory is huge and texting is easy enough, though could be slighly better. how all this technology can fit into such a tiny phone is beyond me, and yet the screen is plenty big enough. anyone hesitating to buy this phone is mad.. get it now you won't regret it.
The samsung is sooo annoying. I have just moved from SE to this operating system and it cant do some of things that I would class as basic. Vibrating whilst playing a tune is the most basic feature and it cant even do that. Added to this, to beable to use added features of the camera I have to remember what each button does as it there is no option in the menu system, how crap is that. As for the rest of the phone it is a good design and has some good features but still does not compensate for fundimental flaws.
firstly, to Nick.. The batt for d500 suckz! it only lasted me 1 day.. maybe i didnt charged enuff on the 1st day i bought it.. it claimed that it can stores 1000 photos but i haven reach there yet.. =) haha.
secondly, to mag.. Yup, its like that.. perfectly normal.. same as mine.. i dun mind it sounding like this..
lastly, to shorty.. i think u'll need to get a bluetooth data link in order to transfer pics or dl full length songs frm ur desktop/laptop to d500.. u can try infrared also if ur desktop/laptop has 1.. =)
Hey, the last fone i had was a t100 but i thought that fone was ok, ive had the samsung d500 for a few days now and its worth every penny.!!!!!!!!!
to brynn, ty but on o2 website it still says not available.. when is it? anyway wouldn't it be cheaper to get sim free phone + sim ... i've been looking around and can get this for £280.
where can i get a data cable to connect my phone to the computer. once i have this can i down load full length tracks?
Ice Man, D500 is 1st Samsung with unlocked bluetooth and infrared. Of course it can connect to send and receive stuff!
had the D500 for a few weeks now an it's great! the last samsung i had was the T100 which i HATED so i was worried about if i'd like the D500, it's SO much better, it's such a pleasure 2 use, i wont b shying away from samsung in the future!
