Hi there i was just wondering if someone who has his phone honestly tell me if it is worth buying. It its the Australian Shores next week and i am thinking of buying it.
eer? why cant the alarms work if your phone is off? even if you batterys dead it'll always save a lil bit for your alarm.so dont be such a smart ars! but as for the D500 is a great phone and any of you winging out there about it, nothing will ever please you you so i dont know why you bother. it make's phone call's don't it!
wat the.....??? you guys want the alarm to work when u switch it off??? of course the alarm wont work in this phone when its switched off......
Can anyone tell me wat d different between D500 with D500C n D500E?? thanx..
Hello i have this phone on order and my mate has this great lil phone, id like to say i have played around with his and it seems fine great cam (although the delay is deisgracful) i would advise this phone to anyone. i have read the past msgs about the contest between s700 and the D500, well ARE U MAD jesus look at the size of the S700 it's so big so when it aint flipped open and when u do u could use the dam thing for a satilite lol. The D500 is alot smaller and has a better camera, there is no contest and for you tight ppl out there that moan about STUPID things u are are unbelieveble there is no phone out there that is perfectit is all a scam to make u buy a new phone there neva will be a perfect phone. D500 is so good BUY IT NOWWWWW. www.ebay.co.uk/com/de u can buy a data leads from ther for £7.99 dnt kno what that would be in
but his hp don hav external memory card slot, this is the weeknesses of it, haih..-_-
i'm thinking of buying these phone, but after i read all the forum, it seems like got some problem with it, but i dunno how true was it, juz wanna ask, for S700i and D500, which is better n which one is more reliable n capable, n stable. Which camera is more better to take photo no matter at night or daylights, hope somebody can tell me, thanks../^^
so does the mp3 ringtone play the whole song when someone calls or does the ringtone stop when caller hangs up???????
There is a reason why the alarm do not work when the phone is off. When you are in a aeroplane and and your phone is off and you set the alarm, the signals may cause danger!!! Exelent phone!!! All features very good = Triban, bluetooth etc. Well done Samsung!
Yes alarm is not working when off!! Even My old Motorola E365 had this as a basic feature. But D500 doesnt have that!!
I just bought this phone yesterday....so far it still no problem for me...there's few thing i'm not satified is... the alarm wouldn't Alert when u turn off the phone, the message tone only can use the 10 tones that samsung provided, the up key is hard to press sometimes may be my finger is too big,
the contact list i can't find to display only the phone contact, because if i display from the sim card it take some time to load, same as the sms folder...the java game can't save the setting example after i set vibration off after i close the game and turn back on again the vibration set to on... i need to set it everytime i play the game.. a bit annoying.... my phone doesn't support chinese..sigh~ okie... that's all
Sorry. It was Gareth who I was quoting not Cantsleep.
In answer to my own queery I've got my Jabra BT200 working with the D500. It might go without saying but you ahve to 'reboot' the headset. I turned it off and then turned it on holding the on button and volume up at the same time (a trick Jabra told me). The blue light is then constant. This is when you go to the Bluetooth menu on the phone and search for the device.
I've just made a call to test t and it's fine.
No voice dial is a pain but I can live with it. The camera delay isn't great but again nothing critical. Overall I'm thinking I've gota decent little phone here.

The voice dialing I can live without but the bluetooth headset for me is a must. if this doesn't work then it's no use at all. has anybody got a headset to work with the D500? I've a Jabra BT200 and I need to get it connected as i need to use it for work.
this is the worst phone i have ever owned. First of all the 1.3 mega pixel camera, is not justified on the tiny screen so images on the phone suck. Secondly i have had problems with the blue tooth and mp3 player constatntly and samsung are unwilling to help. I will never use these phones AGAIN.
recieved this phone on friday and returned it on monday, this is the biggest disapointment i have ever had, over hyped and over priced
I was wondering if anyone knows when this phone will hit Perth,Western Australia?? I cant wait for this phone and want it as soon as it comes out!
The specs look sweet and it was voted the best. Wake up Australia!
I have had my samsung D500 for 3 months, and for people wondering, the camera is great, although it takes a few seconds for it to focus. The second thing people are wondering is about mem cards - there is no slot for them. Third thing, USB connector - there is one, it's on the right side above the camera button under a slide cover. There is supposidly a cable out for it but it is scarce. The fourth thing, is that the video recording - it works, but isn't as sooth as a S700, and although some people don't know, it does support vid downloads. Picture qualiy - it's about as good as a cheap / midrange digi cam, and for people who complain about the S700 - it's about the same, just the d500 takes longer to take a picture. There are only two negative things about this phone - one is that it has no radio (S700 does) and when using the MP3 Player, it doesn't seem to support some types of bitrates, although 128kbps is fine and sounds good too. Two last things about thos phone - the screen is the best i've ever seen on any mobile phone, although it's not as high res as a S700's it is just better and the last thing is about bluetooth - It works with everything except using a headset and voice dialling.
