It took several weeks of research before I finally decided to purchase this cellphone. It's amazing! Although the text message entry is slower than Nokia's interface, this phone has so many extra features. I bought the Samgsung D600 without the USB cable so I got another purchase from ebay. But I was having such a hard time installing everything untill reading some postings that gave me hope. The problem was setting up the USB connection and the com port. This is what's going on: For a full USB cellphone to PC connection (separately purchased data cable), you need to
1) install the USB DEVICE driver 1.0 from the provided CD
2) install the USB MODEM driver 1.0 as well using control panel->systems->hardware->use hardware wizard and select file from the CD drive
3) download the latest v3.0 Samsung PC Studio from http://sg.samsungmobile.com/en/phone/manual_software/manual_software.jsp?p_pfid_1=SGH-D600
or the UK website.
This is better than the Easystudio v2.0 on the CD.
4) Now just connect your cellphone to the USB to the PC, and the magic will happen.
Hope this record is helping other frustrated Samsung D600 owners.
The stand by time an the headset sound quality it's made more for a sound sytem bringing the charger or extra batteries with the av cable or a car charger
Mp4 is a format that demands more power to run then 3gp have you thied ?

To everybody who asks about multitasking and other stuff like this.
I want to state that this phone is not a smart phone! It does not support multitasking and you cannot write a SMS and listen to music, for example. You cannot install programs, like Symbian phone or these with ordinary operating systems. It has a great number of feaures, but this doesn't make it smart.
When you use the phone intensively, like listening to music, whatching video, the battery discharges quickly and because of this it releases heat. This is chemical reaction inside the battery. If it is not getting too hot, it is normal. The second reason is inside your phone - the processor. When you load it up, it gets warm because it starts to work at higher frequency.
About recent contacts. Go to the contact you wish to add, then go to options, the next should be Save as contacts and choose where to save it, in the phone or SIM.
When you use bluetooth and when you want to transfer files between devices, you have to pair with it. Pairing is a process of exchanging passwords for authorization to ensure that you are not sending something to someone accidentally. When you try to connect or send something to other device via bluetooth, you will be asked for a password. You must enter the same password on both devices. For example: I want to send you a file, and I am sending it via bluetooth to your device. On your handset you will be asked for a password. You enter 1234 as a password, and if I want to send the file I must enter the same - 1234.
Review your sms settings/send settings. You have to have a service centre number entered, given by your mobile operator. Thru this number you can send/receive messages.
I will answer another questions that I have seen.
No external speakers can be used. DO NOT TRY IT. There is a real chance of making short circuit. This is dangerous for the phone!
I have read some insinuations and lies about the phone! I am using 512MB trans flash card on my one, and this things about 56MB cards, scratches, bad camera are bullshits. Excuse me for the rudeness!
Everybody complains about the battery! People - do you read the manual or asking the seller, before starting to charge the battery? If you do not activate your battery properly, it will not take long! My battery is very durable. I can watch whole movie on my TV via handset, and it will last 2 days more. It is very, very important how the battery will be activated!
Dear Deyaa Ragab,
Supporting different languages depends on what is the version of the firmware installed on your handset. The firmware software must be a version that supports your desired language.
The difference between D600 and D600E is that D600E supports EDGE.
In answer to Bluetooth code question, it's probably just meaning a bluetooth sync code, so if you type "0000" into both handsets they should sync ok.
hey sara and ali
i have two questions
1- does the d600 support the arabic language read and write?
2- what is the difference between d600 and d600e?
SMS to Pc.
Just using ur samsung PC studio 3 software to transfer it. Tat all....
I've had this phone for about a month now and I think its great. However, I wished that the camera lens was placed under the sliding cover like the older Samsung slider models instead of being on the outside like now. I got my self-portrait mirror all scratched up from the mobile strap that came with the phone =( I now stick some sticky tape over it to protect it from further damage. And also, the phone strap gets in the way of the camera lens when taking photos because of the positions they are placed on the phone.
Does anyone know how to transfer the sms from the phone to computer?
can i listen to music and minimize the window in other to do other things, like writing text etc.
why is it that when i listen to music the battery starts gettin hot???
when someone calls me with a new number and says "hi i just got a new phone add to your ad", how can i add this number from the recent call menu, without having first needin to write it in a piece of paper...
aside all these i think it would make a good phone
Hi everyone… I’m from Bangladesh. Recently I bought this phone. It’s really awesome. Got a little prob. here, which is when I try to connect to Nokia phone through Bluetooth it wants, security code. How can I stop this? Plz. Plz. Plz. help me anyone.
Please can you help. I am having problems trying to download music files from my PC to my phone via bluetooth. A message appears on my computer basically saying ensure OBEX push profile is installed. I don't know what to do to check that. I have a bluetooth transceiver for my keyboard and mouse and have no problems there. I don't know what to do! I have tried installing the software (USB) that comes with the phone but after that my computer starts to act strange (goes slow, plug-ins disable) and it the software doesn't seem to work with my phone!!
I would be most grateful for anyone's advice.
I would like to know why samsung discontinued the D600??? And why don't they create a replica just with 3G and a 3mega pixel camera! All the new nokia's weigh tons. (p.S the D820 Is hidious)
