U cant use zoom when u r using the 2 best camera settings, that are 1280x1024(SXGA) & the next best (I dont remember the res now as i dont have the fone with me :P).. With all other modes, u can use the zoom.. Not sure what u mean by "zoom is rubbish"; do u mean the quality of pic on zooming? In my opinion, u get the best with zoom in VGA (640x480) mode.
Use the software called BlueSoleil. I got it with my BT adapter. With that MP3 transfer works like a charm.
Alternately, use 'fsquirt' in Run window (Windows key+R) if u r using Windows XP.. This will open the BT File Transfer Wizard. I havent used this but u might as well give it a shot..
U do get the apostrophe symbol in this.
Do post any more queries u have for ur D500, i will try my best to answer them..
does ne one know the settings to get your internet working (cingular users), internet does not work for my d 500. Kinda think that sucks!
Hi every1! i have a problem with my d500, i cant lock the sms for privacy, does anyone know y and how to set a lock fro my sms inbox or sumething...thx for any help...

A brilliant smart looking phone with all the latest technologies. However I still haven't managed to download mp3 files. Please could someone let me know how to transfer files from Windows Media Player (if possible) or which application to use so I can listen to my favourite music on my way to work? I've tried to use the wireless connection with the bluetooth function but it doesn't recognise my cumputer as a device for downloads... Please help. Thanks.
quality phone!!!! one of the best i ever had. a crazy but sexy design and small. so easy to operate and the menus are easy to access. hope samsung make a better version of it soon.
Is it true that when sending texts you don't get an apostrophe among the characters(this character: ', so you can't write something like: I'd like)?
Was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem i have been having with the d500, whilst using it the screen sometimes freezes goes totally white and doesnt come on again until tne next day , but at present i still cant see my screen. it also randomly switched itself off!!
Been using this phone for 6 months now & I must say that this baby is worth every penny u spend on it. It hasnt yet given me a single problem.
I will point out the +ves & -ves on this one accdg to me:
+ Small, light & snug-fitting in the palm. Can easily handle it with one hand because of correct placement of buttons all around.
+ 1.3 mp camera gives pics that are of above-average quality.. (for folks who say that cam is not adequate, go & buy a digi-cam!! ;) ) Cam is under the slider with a mirror & a flash!! And it has a number of picture modes that give surprising results.
+ Speakers - loud & clear.
+ Slider & Keys - The best part of the D500 is the slider & it just grabs attention whenever u pop it up in public.. True, the first line of num-pad is close to the slider bottom, but well, its ok..
+ Memory - Total 100 MB is enough for a small-sized mp3 collection & java games. Would have loved to have a memory-slot, but the D510 has solved that prob..
+ Speed of operation - A major plus is the speed with which it responds. You will be able to note the difference (opening msgs, launching apps,etc) if u have used other phones earlier.
+ I have been using a BlueTooth dongle to exchange MP3s/pics/vids with my PC; it works like a charm.
+ 1000 X 12-field address book entries!!
- MP3 player is good with playlist & all, but you cant play the songs in the back-ground & indulge in something else like texting.
- Message tones cant be customised.
- For text junkies, the 200-sms limit would be dis-appointing. Might have given it in the shared memory...
- BlueTooth consumes the battery a lot.
I might have forgotten to add a few other points here, but the bottomline is that the phone serves you well functionally & if you are the one who likes to flash your phone in public, then this one's gonna grab more than a few eye-balls!!
