well - ive noticed a lot of people are having troubles with their d500's - im glad im not one of them - i guess i must have gotten the newest firmware or something
and the comparison between the d500 and the 6681? they are completely different phones - no regular series 40 phone will EVER be able to do as much as any symbian phone - symbian phones are by far the most versatile cell phones out there - as far as viruses go - youll only get a virus if your stupid enough to accept a bt transmission out of the blue or upload some software that you bought on a $10 cd off of ebay
basically - as long as youre not a complete moron - you wont get a virus on your s60 phone
but out of the s40 phones - the d500 is one of my favorite - i consider the s40 phones my "backup" phones and this thing is the best backup ive ever had - bar none...
For its size and weight id take the D500 over the Nokia 6681, because im not really interested in a symbian. I want a phone that is not vulnerable to viruses!
D500 used to be my dream phone, have woken up now, gonna buy Nokia 6681.
I dont know why some people are having probs wit this phone. It works fine for me and the camera quality is actually quite good.. for a phone. If you want the highest quality of pictures i suggest you buy a digital camera instead. This is a phone with many features and trust me, it does its job well.
Samsung looks nice and operates OK. Only problem is the lack of voice calling which hinders bluetooth headset use. Bit useless in that department. Camera isnt too good either, the resolution always makes pictures look darker and if you use the flash everything looks whitewashed. Samsung accessories are a bit behind too, the screensavers don't look good and its difficult to transfer data without buying the cable or using the e-mail/WAP or infrered facilities making it difficult to download your own MP3 music.
The only good thing about the samsung D500 is the design and camera everything else is crap.
does anyone knows if D500 sync the calendar with the icall from mac OsX ? thanks..
ok - just got the d500 yesterday and so far - this phone is magnificent. its not quite as versatile as my 7610 but for what its worth - it holds its own...
the screen is brilliant - the camera is just as good - the rf is great - and the voice quality is pretty good as well
it comes with about 90mb of internal memory which is not expandable - however, the phone supports both mp3 and aac(mp4) formats - if you save the mp3's as mp4 files, you can squeeze in about 40 songs - which is really more than enough for a cell phone...
for the person asking of a comparison with the 6170 - i have to say - i think the 6170 looks fabulous BUT - it only comes with 2.2mb of memory inside - it only has a VGA camera - and it does not have BT - so its really up to what you need
as far as the bt - i havent had trouble coupling up with my 7610 or e398 - im actually transferring mp3s to the phone as we speak
this phone is sleek and sexy - and for a backup - i love it...
Trying to decide the D500 or the Nokia 6170 (Stainless Steel flip). Anyone advise please? Unless anyone has recently bought anything good. Not a great Panasonic/Sharp fan. Mrs has got K700i, so cant have that!!!
a very good phone!!! excelent phone... but i would like to see some photos made with it!!!
hi, im abput to get this fone so i decided t chek the opinions. can any 1 tel me nefin about the phones memory in terms of mp3's & is it as good as it is said. Also is it easy to use?????????????
it works ok for bluetooth but it sucks for handsfree bluetooth as it has no voice tagging...so not handsfree!!!!!!
hi guys i am anticipating the decision whether to buy da phone or not and i read some bad opinions bout da bluetooth can someone dat owns da phone tell me if it works good or not
Am I missing something, but this phone has no vouce taggingfeature to use with a bluetooth headset does it? If so....how?????
hi i really wanna know if this phone suppurted arabic keybad and arabic software
and when it well be available in arabic country egypt & emarits
I found this phone to be very stylish but am disappointed that the games cannot be loaded onto it like nokias as you have to download bluetooth software thats hard to set up if it works at all ?
I think this phone is useless since it doesnt have expandable memory. It can only store about 15 mp3s at most and its very overpriced.
