for all you people who needs to download music,first thing you need is the right data cable(duh~~). second, you must download the software from the samsung website. i guess you could download all the software but actually you only need few things. 1.usb driver(download and install)2. the pims file manager(this is what they call the easystudio II). when all the softwares are installed, you need to connect the software to your computer.connect your phone to usb.Goto device manager. make sure the usb device shows up in modem and set to any com port (com1, if you can) open pims manager and go to file-setting. you should be able to see the com on the port section. (The speed should not be too fast about 11500. and reload the pims. this should do the job.
Hi everyone. I got my d500 about 2 months ago. The camera is great,but there is a few things that I really dont like:
1.You can't create your own folders,like with all the nokia phones.The only folders you can use is the ones already on the phone.
2. The phones got a huge internal memory but no external memory.There is no card slot!Why SAMAUNG?
If the phone didn't have these problems I would have held onto my d500.I'm going to get me the SE K750 instead!
had phone 2 months and it gets a hard life with me being a spraypainter with dust and paint etc.. dont listen to the others with sony erricson nokia etc.. had them they dont last d500 rules 4 sure
Can someone help me set up my email account. Do you need to contact your sevice provider for a password or is it you email password? also does some one have all the setting for a btopenworld emial account?
hi. is it easy to download music from ur pc onto the d500. do u need to buy anything extra to do this.
I just purchased a D500 i would like to know by anyone. There is a rumour going around that the phone was manufactured with a fault is this true? and where on the phone is the usb port?Thanks, no matter what i love my phone its so cool.
this phone is great, i am proud to own a d500 samsung i would recommend it to anyone that is in the market for a mob'e
Does anyone know if you have bluetooth on - and you receive a call - can you hear the personal that is calling you or does the line go dead?
ie. does the cellphone have to have bluetooth off
to receive calls?
how to set up email on this cellphone? ppl say to get another line from an isp - and you have to be on contract?
please brief me about what is needed pop3 settings?
When I click Messages/Outbox - the messages
that I have saved - tells me who I sent the messages to , but doesn't say when it was sent - is that correct? or is something wrong with my cellphone?
If I send a SMS to Liesel (examplename) and save the message to my outbox: it would be saved under the name Liesel, but a few hours/days later, the name becomes another name (example Bob) who I sent another sms (also saved to outbox). ie. if I sent an sms : hello how you are doing ? to Liesel
the name Liesel now becomes Bob but when I switch cell off then on - it goes back to Liesel? is this a problem with the cell - some ppl have said to upgrade the firmware - is that true?
All help would be much appreciated.
Overall impression of Samsung D500 : excellent cellphone!!
Samsung sucks. Support in the UK is non-existant. I have tried to connect both bluetooth and USB data cable, but this doesn't work with the Samsung software. Very little help doc's in proper english. I'll never buy Samsung again, which is a pity, as I like the camera.
this phone is different from others, to see ur contact name, not click the button above c/clear button. instead of clicking tat button, click the button above the reject/end call button.
this phone is crap.....i have 3 phones seeing that i have to travel and need phones of different types(GSM, and such) i have d500, e730 and SE 700i. this is the worst out of the three....the reason why the reviewers gave such a high reason is because they only used it for a couple of weeks to couple of months at max. if u use this more than 4 months, u will definately feel the need to change and fix about everything in the phone. tis includes sliding mechanism, screen and camera. VERy dissapointed DO not buy it, stick with e730 or SE 700
i love this phone and it looks awsom...i want it for my b-day...i was just wondering if it had voice recorder and if you could use that as your ringtone?...so thats it...and this phone is AWSOM!!! tnx...-enji
umm guys i just got this phone today and when you press the down button [the button on top of the "C" or clear button] is it supposed to show a name? help please
at last i buy this! this evening and i'm glad, it's gorgeous and i think it's perfect for me. people...buy it! don't think in others, thisis the best. at first it don't like me but now i think it's extremely beautiful. bye!
Bar style is not my preference but sliders are my personal rave -- I carry 2 phones a company nokia bar style that is vitally essentiial to lock the keys to avoid random dialing!!! My personal is a flip -- again cumbersome to find it grab it open it all before a missed call - yes I am that busy while on a landline as well -- good luck
I orderd d500; should be here in a few days; all the reviews sound great-can't wait; it was the 1st unlocked I ever saw 3mo ago- fell in techno love with it at 1st sight; My 2 daughtrs want the Razr - but 3 identical fones in 1 house will be utter chaos; I have E317 already & hope for another winner; other runners up are E810,Nokia 6111,Philips 960, Ericson W600; my ultimate dream choice is the Denim & diamonds ESCADA SL65 by Siemens--rugged yet refined my own shabby chique to a T!
