great phone, bought it second-hand a year ago and it still works! the only problem i have is that sometimes the OK- and the down-key doesn't work so i'm forced to buy a new one..
I work in a mobile phone shop, have done for nearly 6 years now and I`ve had and used my SAMSGHD500 for almost 3 years now and never had a days problem, I get a lot of stick from collegues about my ancient handset, but it works well, has a great battery STILL and does what I want it to do, I`m not going to change until it dies, but I have 2 spare batteries stashed away for future use to try and prolong the end, it`ll be a sad day when it does finally give up the ghost.
True i agree with Funkymusic_Lucian
It wud have been better with a card like the D600
this was and still is a great fone. my d500 is 3years old and works still fine and are better then some new fones.
PJ, 31 May 2008How can i get more memory on my D500? I like the features very much and need more space for so... moreyou can't expand the phones memory due to the missed card slot part in it.this mobile phone and the D500 series doesn't have a card slot in it.so you can't
it's a good mobile phone it's a pity it hasn't card slot :( it had been perfect
The D500, this used to be the phone of all phones back in the day 2005 when every had K700i's and 6230's this D500 just stood out in the crowd it did shock everyone with its features of the time to 1.3mp camera and 100mb built in and mp3 playback and those speakers that people used to attach to it its was just a hype and worth it, all the people that owned the D500 that i knew loved it it was a great phone even i would say.
Themba, 12 Jul 2008My D500 does not work the yes buttin and from the cusser the up and right also does not work.... moreHad a same problem with my D500 previously. You have to get someone who knows how to fix it. Must dismentle the phone and replace a tiny little film (dont know what it is ) beneath the keypad. Thereafter it will work fine.

i have a question rather. how can i be able to download files larger than 1MB via my wap browser kz it keeps on saying "file too large to download" ?
This is the best phone i have ever owned. Unfortunately i smashed mine finally, after putting it to hell and back. Never froze, or anything jsut ultimately reliable, great features when i owned it (3 years ago now). Hopefully one day Samsung bring out another phone similar but with modern features.
