The phone is alright. Nothing special. It is definitely overpriced £350 sim free? A joke!! For what? I could buy a K700i and a 6230 for £300
the d500 has got to be one of the worst Phones on the market at the moment the camera is rubbish the bulid quality is CRAP the one good thing about the D500 is the little speaker u get in the box give me a nokia 3310 anyday LOL :0
simply very nice to use. just try........... then you will .........
wah tis hp is really great!!! on par wif samsung E720..another beauty like E720..hopefully e price is more reasonable!!! btw anybody noe when is it comin in singapore? and for samung e720 too?
Anyone know whether to get this phone or wait for the D720. I dont really care for the Symbian operating system, so which one should I get? The D500 looks better in my opinion, but I still cant decide. Is it better to wait or is the D500 a worthy alternative?
Its the perfect phone every student wanna own...everything u can think of is inside...MP3...1.3MP camera...but one bad thing is tat is doesn't have radio...add me in msn...email@example.com...
Just got the phone. Many of the generic accessories available in the US work well with this phone like Bluetooth headphones and computer adapters. I matched it up with the Motorola headunit and the Targus computer and mouse adapter and it works fine. I also picked up a PDA screen tape to protect the exposed display. I highly recommend this because the screen can easily be scratched over time.
It is an awsome phone with many features that you wouldn't expect in such a small package. MP3 player is great, the camera is outstanding with many fun features.
One draw back is that tech support is not available here in the US. Service providers will not offer to help you program your phone as they do not have the knowledge base and will not assume responsibility for any malfuntions due to incorrect advice. Samsung US also will not offer much support for the same reasons so you are pretty much on your own to figure these things out. However this is not a knock on the phone. It took me awhile, but now that I have figured out most of the workings, I absolutely love this phone.
Great attention getter, but still discreet as this is not over-exploited by advertisements as the Razr here in the US. By the way, this phone is 10x better than the Razr and this is coming from a guy who really wanted the Razr in the beginning and compared the two.
Hi, I postewd the following a few days ago but got no reply. Does anyone know the answer to the following question??
Does anyone know when the D500E (with EDGE technology) will be available in the UK. I think it is already out in Italy.
I have been told that the EDGE version is better for downloading e-mails - is there a technocrat out there who can confir/deny this?
Would welcome an answer to both questions.
Hi people in just about to buy this phone.. i just have a question about... PLEASE can someone answer.. ill be very gratefull
Can u set a recorded sound clip (from the in-built sound recorder) as a ring tone? like i do in my k700... i record peoples names and set it as the ringtone for that person.. is this possible in D500?? Someone plz answer
Thank u in advance
I am in love with this phone i love samsungs i have had everyone i have e800 now but this is the best of all phones it looks so good and can do everything and its has mp3 ringtones to download , bonus . cant wait to get my hands on one
I'm loving reading down through these comments. I understand the desire to have the Symbian OS on your phone, but if you want that sort of capability, buy a Hand-held PC, if you want an MP3 player, buy one, if you want a fancy digital camera, than buy one.
But, if you want a really good phone (like this one) then you'll be happy at all the nice extra features that this PHONE provides!
Get your facts right, I have the D500 and I have connected to a Motorola V3 and was able to browse the V3 files through my D500 directly. This isn't called pairing, its called bonding (I think). I have also paired up with a Nokia 6600 and a Sony Ericsson Z600.
So, just what are you talking about when you say it has bluetooth issues . . . NO IT DOESN'T!! This phone's bluetooth works very well and works at a good speed too.
I own this phone. If you're going to bluetooth stuff onto it then you're going to have some trouble and you're going to be quite restricted, but all can be overcome, just visit;
This guy has detailed instructions on how to overcome the problems. I got a bluetooth dongle yesterday and followed his instructions - they definitely work!
This phone is kool, it has loads of memory space, so external memory isn't an issue (for those who want loads of MP3s on their phone . . . - buy an MP3 player!). The camera is brilliant (better in well lit conditions than in dark ones - a short delay in clicking to take a photo and actually taking the photo). This is a very usable phone and the groovy smoothe sliding action is undescribable - go buy this phone!
Samsung D500's video recording is up to 1 hour, A very good phone. One of the best money can buy.
im highly considering buying this phone on ORANGE UK and im also highly considering buying it on O2 UK how ever they both use their own software and orange lock their phones and i was wandering how do you flash these phones?? cos i want the standard up to date samsung software. i can easily get hold of an T100 serial cable from my friend which ive been told is used to do this. i just want to know where can i get the up to date flashing software and how do i do it....if poss can someone email me the software and some instructions please.
yea yea I would like to buy this phone, what does it do, coffe to? all that S**t u guys r boooring.... get a life.
So is there a version of the d500 or d500e that I can use here in the states with Cingular?
how much time can this phone video recording?
oh yer, Can you use 02 Genie sim card with it? thanks again!!
Is the SAMSUNG D500out in the USA yet? thanks!
