Bought the D500 on Wednesday - tiny bit biger than my old E600, but very good! The MP3s can be used as ringtones, in response to somebody's question. The Bluetooth works the same as sony ericcson phones - nice and simple to setup. The phone rings and vibrates at the same time, and the volume of the tones is good - the mini speaker that comes with the phone is cool for playing the MP3s with. Please feel free to ask on questions on this posting page.
Getting my phone on orange in a day or two as an unprgrade for £50. Can't wait its a top phone!!!
This website has a good detailed review and pictures:
does anyone who have this phone already actually tested the video functionality?? i heard you can record up to 1 hr is that true?? if so, is that one time recording or you can have video clips that last one hour each???
It is a very beautiful design of the new samsung D500 i like to buy this when it comes to my land in norway!!!
i agree that samsung are the same quality as sony ericsson. i tried both phones out and they didnt match the quality provided by the sharps. i honestly think that the sammy d500 is a great phone bu t i think i might wait for the sammy s2300 as it has avi and mpeg video recording features which is much better than than the d500.
Hi, i would like to ask two questions about D500 1)Can it ring and vibrate at the same time? 2) Can u use your recorded tunes(MP3 tunes) as ring tones or is it strictly samsung ring tones be the used as ring tones?

thanks unknown ill keep in mind about that mad woman!! for you guys who live in UK, you guys are so lucky...any info on how a guy like me living in the U.S. can get hold of one of these beauties???
Got the last one from the carphone warehouse in Northampton today, my god what a phone! Had a few Nokias (3210,7610,6120), an old school ericsson (GA628!), a siemens (SL55) and the Samsung E700, but this is by far and away the best phone I've owned. Bluetooth is great, screen is flawless, the SoundMate clip on speaker is quality, and it was FREE (£35/month tariff). Get one now...
Got it this morning and am more than a little impressed, it looks and feels amazing, features and functions are easy to use and the camera is top notch.
The best phone ive ever had the pleasure of owning, and the best ive ever seen. Only time will tell if its reliable, but for now 10 out of 10, very impressed!!
I just had a reply from Samsung Australia regarding the phones availability. They informed me that it will be available for sale in the first half of next year.
