Was just going to ask how to put this phone on silent when i realised how many people had previously asked! Got this phone 2 days ago and the comments on its "bad slider" are scaring me...is this true?
I dont think this phone is good.Its batery lasts only a day,and it as some tehnical problems.Dontlet the design fool you!!!
THIS! is simply a masterpiece. The best cell-phone. Design, features, performances.. on top of the world. I love it so much.
I don't understand those people who say that the slider gets loose soon. Well, I bet they don't see the difference between 'loose' and 'smooth'. I've been using this phone for two months and the slider opens up only when I want it to. SMOOTHLY.
Top-of-the-class cell phone!
No wonder Samsung is beating Nokia even in Europe now.
I heard those people in Korea are now enjoying Samsung's video cell phones with built in satellite TVs. Wonder when America will get civilized, though. :(
So far I love this phone and recommend it to all you people. You will find out why once you use it. :-)
casey wat converter are u using to change mp3s to mp4 i cant find any converters that work properley
I think that the D500 is a "rockin" phone. I am really pleased with the overall design and functionality. I would definately recommend.
well i bought the d500 almost a month ago , i have some things to say about it the slide is barley ok ,if u open it many times it will stay open ,second the speaker phone is external not internal the look of the phone becomes old fashioned like motorolla , without the speaker phone rigntones and message beeps are difficult to hear , camera is ok but video clips is not , if ur a lady its a good phone but if ur a guy u have to buy a bag to put it inside or else the phone will open and close every 2 seconds ,
and the phoine lock is a total weired u do a phone lock on ur samsung to let it activate u have to restart ur phone and then it shws phone is locked then when some1 calls u it shows for the caller that its ringing but for the recpter nothing rings the phones stays on phone lock no beep no nothing so its useless,today is 11 july 05 and i bought the phone exactly on 3 july so its been like 7 days not a month i bought with with 400 dollars brand new and im willing to sell it with 300 cos someday this phone will brake and bye bye money and for the bluetooth its good all phones can send and receive but the samsung is different it saves the phone names in its program so a new phone to send or to receive need authorisation code not like nokia u can enable or disbale this feature and its abit slower then nokiainfra red os okay, please samsung for future ideas and projects makethe phone greater with looks more heavy duty with a memory card slot , with internal speaker phone,with a software who can accept all formats cos d500 dont read mid and amr formats well thats an advice for me to you
Guys, SAMSUNG D-500 A true MasterPiece! I had bought this phone 2 weeks ago and this is fantastic from its looks and dynamic design and the Camera is Awesome! No doubt this is the COOLEST Mobile of the Year...!
I wanted the 6230i but after doing some researched settled on either a D500 or a E730n (still cannot make up my mind.
The complaints I have heard from 6230i users centres mostly on the wonky keypad and terrible bluetooth transfer.
Just bought this phone for my daughter who had the D410 previously. What a great phone and what an improvement to the D410! If you're wanting a phone with good features that is simple to figure out then this is the phone for you. The only things that let it down is the lack of a memory card slot, (96MB doesn't go far when you start with pictures and music) and the poor battery life, they're way off with the talk time mentioned here, it needs charging daily, maybe twice a day with heavy use. Good phone in every other respect though.
nokia 6230i and D500, which to choose? help me! the price of these both cell phones in my country are not much different~ but D500's looking...really really killing me!beauties champion! just dont have the card slot... =/
i have completely fallen in love with the D500. i agree it is in a completely different class to the Nokia. for me this phone is perfect and i couldnt live without it!
im having a hard time deciding between the samsung d500 and the nokia 6230i......somebody please HELP ME. i would also like to know if the samsung d500 scratches alot because i just cant own a phone that scratches. please answer a.s.a.p.
Well, the design looks good. Function is okay also. The only thing i don't like is the memory. If it only has a card slot it would have been perfect.
To Kangsadal Pipitpakde and for all those that don't have a clue about cell phones...
Nokia 6230i can't even be compared with D500. D500 is simply at different class. Design, screen size, camera functions and various functions plus resonable price are just too much for the incompetent nokia phone. Soon, Nokia is going to have problems keeping up with Samsung. The reason being, Samsung is one of the best producers of micro chips. This helps them to create phones with small size, weight and better functions. As well, Samsung is considered the best in electronics. This undoubtedly gives them the edge in integrating digital cameras, tv, internet, online banking system with various other functions. Have a look at Korea, or Japan and see what their phoens are doing. Amazing, i just can't see Nokia ever catching up with Samsung
pls does the phone received infrared from other phones or receve bluethoot from other phones pls i wanna know before buying it for my self the phone is beautifull.
Does the Samsung D500 have an inbuilt media player for 3GP and 3GPP content? If so, can you copy mobile video clips to the phone memory with a cable as you can with the Nokia range?
Superb effort! Never really liked Samsungs but D500 cuts the cake. Brilliant display ( though scratch-prone) and classy features. Absence of card slot limits ultimate useability of excellent megapixel camera. Hugely appealing and desirable, though lacks iconic image of the likes of Nokia 6230. Still one of the most desirable slider phones around and certainly a contender for Samsung's best.
