1. no voice dial (voice tag)
2. no call recording
3. no real media file support (rm, ram)
4. cant crop pictures in the photo editor
5. cant have beep once ring mode
6. all java games needs to be installed via gprs
7. NO Text editor
8. no 3gp recording only playback a convertor woulda been nice for faster file xchange.
if im worng witn any of the above notes please notify me and help me find hidden features of this great mobile.
The d600 sucks!! It is like the only 2mp fone that doesn't have autofocus. Even the d500 has infared how come the d600 doesn't? These r major weaknesses!!!
I love this phone the quality of the camera and the style of it. i have had a lot of phone and i must say that this is the best one i have ever come across one problem i do have with the phone is the camera position i prefered the one on the D500 as it was covered up, on the D600 it isnt and it gets alot more dirty but overall i love it and thank samsung enterprise
About viewing a picture in a full screen mode. I think it is not possible at all. I've tried a lot of ways but without any success. You cannot upload a picture file into Other Files directory. You cannot upload whatever supported media (Audio, Video, Pics) file in this directory. It says Access Denied.
I'm getting disappointed from D600. :( It misses very simple features - like viewing an image in full screen mode; ring and vibrate at the same time; no application install, only java which is very buggy; I've returned my D600 for software upgrade, because of many errors, restarts, hanging ups; my handsfree is faulty, there is a very big difference in audibility of left and right channel (I tried whit D500's handsfree and it was perfect); this phone has the same processor like Nokia 6600 - ARM9TDMI@104MHz, operating system is RTK-E (if it can be called operating system, it is firmware). I am looking for a way of installing Symbian but I think it is not possible.
About connecting phone to PC Studio via USB or Bluetooth - it is recommended to disable your firewall, because I experienced a lot of troubles whit this, unless I realised where was the problem.
SAMSUNG D600 ON MAC: I have managed to get the D600's modem working on Mac OSX. This can be achieved by downloading Mobile High Speed (Google it), install it, then go to your stratup drive to \Library\Modem Scripts and copy MMHS Modem to your desktop or something. Then uninstall Mobile High Speed (unless you really want it, but I can't find a serial for it anywhere), and copy the file you copied to desktop or wherever back to \Library\Modem Scripts. Now you need to go to Internet Connect (plug your phone in via USB cable) and get it to use the MHS Modem script. For the number and username/password you need to dial refer to your service provider (I'm with O2, number to dial is *99# and username and password are username and password. Now you're set! Just press connect from Internet Connect and this should work! Email me if you've got a problem with any of the instructions...
I am a discouraged owner of this phone.
Several flames discovered, but today´s one is: If you have your phone locked (password for files, list of calls and so on...) If you have a missed call: Anyone can see your call lists without password!!
I have phoned Samsung and their answer is that there is no solution to this problem.
Don´t be fooled by the stylist appearance of this phone. It is pure trash. Camera is 85% of time out of focus, email does not work if you have more than 100 messages in your inbox, no voice recognition.
NO SUPPORT FROM SAMSUNG.
I have problem with the installation of the CD, is there any CD that compatible with mcintosh?
Hey i tried pressing #1 when viewing pictures but it does not go to full screen. :(
sorry dude, it doesn't have screen saver feature. The screen automatically turns off when in idle mode for about 10 sec, which i think is good cuz it sort of longers the battery life.
I haven't come across a phone better that a Samsung D600, I've got one myself and i absolutely love it! Out of 10 I would probably give it a 9.
I'm from Argentina and I want to buy a D600, but I heard that this phone has only the T9 in English. Does anybody know how can I do to change the T9 to Spanish? Please, if anybody knows, send me an e-mail with that information. Thanks!
To Dan LJH :
If u are in Europe, then select PAL; in u are in America, then use the NTSC.
It isn't so hard to connect your Phone to Pc or vice versa. It's just easy as that! A lot of people makes it harder for theirself.
Just follow the instructions step by step and do it relaxed, and you will be able to connect you phone to pc! Tada!
- Just post when you don't get any tada! -
well I managed to connect without any problems...
first i connected the phone to the pc... then windows gave me this message to install the driver - so I did it.
Then i installed samsung pc studio... i didn't even restart and everything was OK =]
to Leanne and other people complaining of failed USB connection with the phone being physically connected via USB cable.
I don't know why this difficulty exists with Samsung phones (btw I think also with Nokia) but this is a very annoying problem when one encounters it having no idea how to tackle it. Nowhere you can find guidance on this explaining how to deal with this, neither does the manual.
Now the solution. Firstly, the sequence of actions should be as follows:
1) Install the PC Studio
2) Install the USB driver
3) Restart the PC
4) Connect the phone to PC and open PC Studio and go to Connection manager and set the USB connection.
For this process to succeed Service Pack 2 must be present with your Windows XP. Also someone has mentioned about the firewall to be disabled, maybe that is also important. But from my experience the first prerequisite looks to be a must.
Hope this will help you.
When i connect my USB cable to the computer and then connect my fone, it comes up with a message in the bottom right-hand corner of the PC studio saying that my fone is not connected even though it is!
Please can someone help me with this !
u get no card supplied with d phone :P u have to buy it seperately
the memory card is extremely small :)
Dimensions: 15mm x 11mm x 1mm(L x W x D)
umm, to d600 owners:
just wanna ask if how big is the supplied memory card?
to slick: and if you tell me how one can put any pic (let's say taken with the camera) in Other Files cause I have a feeling you just can't do that. Correct me if I am wrong, I will appreciate that!
Yet I don't know maybe it's possible if transferred from PC through a USB cable, haven't try yet ...But what about just photos taken with the camera ?!
