Seriously speaking ... this is a buggy phone .DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE .don't fell with the external look . its really a buggy phone .Real waste of money . Go to someother phones like NOKIA & SONY ERICCSON.if u wanna use this as just a phone then it will be a normal one .. if u want to use the technology like GPRS,wap etc..then..this is not a phone u r looking for . Ofcourse , good video quality & audio quality other than that this is not a good phone.Please don't buy this phone .. Don't buy by attractiveness,or from websites or the award winning stories ... award was within samsung mobilesets only .. there was no participation from NOKIA or SONY ERICCSON ... so don't be fooled by this awards and so on...

This phone is good. I would rate it 9 out of 10 which is good. Good camera and video recording and I love the sliding mechanism of it! I slide it up and down for ages!
hey ya all... can you help me... plz. tell me where can i find these codes for D500 to get know all info about this mobile, for exsample where it is produces and when, and stuff like that. pthanks write to to e-mail email@example.com
i just got my d500, i have service through tmobile and internet does not want to work.does ne one know the settings to get your internet working.
The lid is a very small thing so it needs to be kept very carefully while charging. It wont be lost if kept properly.
I have just bought the Samsung D500 last week and I have observed that while making a call to another party, the ring is very low for the first 2-3 rings and then suddenly it becomes loud and clear. Please advise if this is a design or an issue?
Hi Maria Damásio
The small lid needs to be removed for charging. And then it can be replaced when the charging is done. This small lid is just to keep the handset closed at times when there is no charging taking place.
I purchased this phone last year and after a few days half of the screen went unreadable and a small crack appeared on the internal screen. I sent it back and got a new one but the quality was not good and the screen broke again just by being in my pocket. I have changed to a Nokia 6230 now and it is fantastic! I will NOT buy a Samsung again.
I reallly want to download images, videos etc. onto my samsung D500 but i dont know how to use my USB cable properally i follwed instructions but i cant do it :,( can some1 please explain it simply thanks.

I just got my Samsung SGH-D500 and I cannot find the way to cahrge it. Itlooks like it has a lid at the bottom where the cahrger should go in.
Can anybody help?
replying to yiggos message, my samsung d500 keypad is pretty dodgy too, it sometimes won't type a letter at all and i have to press another one before it works.
My question to people is how on earth do i load an mp3 playlist from my computer (itunes) to my samsung mp3 player? please email me if you know....i have already used the usb cable and am stuck on the file manager. The tunes already on my phone mp3 show on screen, but i can't seem to drag and drop the playlist into the filemanager to then upload it or download it.!?
This is an award winning phone... so the rest is up to you to think wheather is it good or not.
hey hi i would like to get a samsung phone again, considering this one but my friends who have samsung phones complain that the keypad gets insensitive after a while, and the phones arent durable overall.
anyone with similar complaints? or are these isolated cases? thanks lots! (:
i too got the D500 ... i want to help in intalling games on my handset through bluetooth ... also suggest websites where i can find the games.
i do like the set but would recommend few upgrades
1. FM Tuner
2. Expandable Memory
3. Parallel Processing
4. Compatibility with more than one file formats for audio(just MP3 present)and videos(just 3GP present).
5. If possible try to put PTT tech on the next set.
i think the phone is good cos is small and light wt but reception is not that perfect..from Spore
the screen on my samsung d500 has broke. it comes on and off and people can still ring me on it but the screen is just a white light. can anyone help? please e-mail me with any information. firstname.lastname@example.org
please help, im lost without my phone.
Hello everyone, well I first bought my phone March 2005, been using it under t-mobile service in the usa. I like this phone has a lot of features, memory, video, camera, flash. I used it in africa for three months during the summer of 2005 and came back and used it here. Well this is a great phone, so if you considering buying it, go ahead, you will not be waisting your money. The only thing it is missing is fm tuner, and expandible memory. So i'll be upgrading to another phone in a couple of weeks ( nokia n90 or SE w900). Anyway, this is not a cingular or tmobile recognized phone so you will not be able to download anything from them. What i did is transfered songs via USB dongle or just got them from friends via bluetooth and, used them as ringtones. Overall after a year of using this phone, i am satisfied, when i first got it last year, it was a head turner around my way, barelly anybody had it, but a year has passed and tmobile and cingular have come out with similar looking phones, and more people own this phone, mostly foreigners. It is a great buy.
