To use EDGE, you have to have an EDGE enable handset and be provisioning of GPRS and be in EDGE coverage.

i got a d500... how can i play my 3gp video file on my pc??????? it wont work.... damn it...
No network providers in the UK have it released on Pay And Go. Your best bet is www.mobilefun.co.uk and its btwn £300-350 there - a really good price i think :) Sim free is practically pay as u go without all the branding of networks all over the phone. About the D500e - probably on Vodafone - they have a habit of doing that!Later, Niall
Good ranting! Theres also a lot of truth in wot u say. Peopple puttin this phone down dont even know whats its capable of.
r dere n e features dat r different from the pay as you go version and the sim free version?
does anyone know how much dis fone will cost on pay as you go in the UK, and how much it will cost on sim free in the UK?
How dare you people mock this phone - it TOTALLY rocks. Motorola are too childish and Nokia - oh please - dont even talk to me about style *coughs* 7270, 6260, 6170, come on! D500 holds about two albums @ 112kbps (which is grand bitrate considering the headphones dont go too loud for distortion to be noticed) Bluetooth dongles are easily available and pretty cheap for the D500. I've had it since 2 weeks b4 Christmas and its now on T-Mobile but available cheap (£350) @ mobilefun.co.uk (as opposed to buyin sim free from carphonewarehouse @ £600) It don't have FM radio but what does that matter when you have an MP3 player and the battery time isnt SUPER hot when playing MP3's (maybe 2/3 hours battery life while playin music) another -ve is the lack of mmc/miniSD card but meh, i'll live like. I got the phone free, it's sylish as F00K, strong as F00K (even though another user says its fragile - well to them i say YOU MUST BE GIVING THE PHONE HELL - I have had it more than a month and not a rattle or shake from it! [and its been thru quite a bit C:-) ]) Motorola are no more 'feature packed' than samsung are - name me one 'extra feature' thats actually worth talking about? Back to the phone: it can play mp3 @ whatever quality you wish, aac (real player ripping tool - superior compression to mp3) and can stream 3gp mobile videos.MX - the point of giving an opinion on a Samsung D-500 is not to mock the company, its to give an HONEST review of the phone. Only people who actually have the phone or are interested in how other people find it should ask questions / post comments here. Hope you all dont mind my mini rant / review. :) Later, Niall
Heres a link to where you can download EasyStudio 2 for the D500 http://uk.samsungmobile.com/mobile_phone/manual.jsp
the D500 is released in england/UK. just try to find it, might not be in vodaphone, or t-mobile and stuff, but look for those little phone shops. Indians usually have them, and they are good.
To JC thnx for the information, will the D500e b released in the UK n e time soon?
is the d500 tri-band, but if not otherwise the samsung d500 is a remarkable piece of kit
Its all down to choice if u want the D500, I can weigh up the advantages and Disadvantages of this phone and come to the conclusion that it is well worth buying. Did you know that with its bluetooth u can view the media contents of another person's phone u are connected to and transfer files to ur phone, very useful bluetooth feature that it.
