I have had the d600 for around 2 - 3 months now, i have had no problems with it. I think all the complaints in the section refering to the d600 are from young kids/students who prefer all the little useless extra's that mobile phones can offer. I must remind all you that a phone was created for you to make/recieve - calls/text. I suggest all young ppl looking at this phone to get a sony erricson as samsung is more of a mature handset & please stop posting complaints. P.S sony erricson dont seem to be able to make a good quality handset with no faults due to the amount of handsets they have had to recall. Plus they had to team up with sony cos they dont know what they are doing!!
It is very obvious you do not like the d600, you are only promoting the crap k750. First of all the restrictions you have indicated is only different to the restrictions of k750.
Restrictions of the k750 are at follows:
1. SMS alert cannot be set to silent or vibrate mode while your ringing alert and MMS alert are set to high volumes ringing modes and vice versa. That is unique customization.
2. k750 cannot vibrate first then ringing begins. Vibrate and ringing at the same time are for stupids.
3.k750 do not have sound willness, meaning you can have background sounds playin while texting, browsing the phone and going to menus.
4. k750 cannot read pdf, excel and word files.
5. and many others to mention.
I think you must stick with your k750 because you do not deserve for a d600.
A big thanks to everyone who replied to my dilemma (Samsung D600 vs Sony Ericsson K750).
Searching and reading from other places, it seems that someone should be worried more on "the restrictions of the D600 software (eg not being able to use the mp3 player in the background while texting etc, not being able to assign custom tones for messages, only two skins available..." etc rather than the "the quality of construction or performance" of the D600.
I have also read that the phonebook of the D600 is not the best out there.
It gives you dual entries (from the phone and the sim card) and you don't have the option to just see only one kind (so you will not need to scroll double entries). Is this really the case?
This sounds annoying...since I make a lot of calls everyday (therefore I greatly need a fast way to find entries) as well as txt messaging.
I must state here that I do not place great importance on the MP3 playing issues, since I would not spend battery life for listening to music - I may as well use my portable MP3 player.
Do you know (or have heard?) whether SAMSUNG is coming up with a new firmware for D600 (soon) that might solve the issues that we have been discussing?
I hope they do... not just for firmware but also for their PC Studio. The various online forums are full of questions and complaints on this too...
Thank you so much for taking the time to read an reply.
In any case, I have to make up my mind by tomorrow, the latest... Going either for the Samsung D600 or the Sony Ericsson K750...

To Abdul Rab: The option is not there, but i have seen it somewhere but i don't think it works it's not familiar to me. Don't play games on your phone buy a Xbox or anything else it's eating your battery-life, phone are not made for playing;)
Just My 2 Cents Though.
To Ian: Because the phone only support MP3, AAC, MP4, 3GP. I think you have put a WMW file or a other file into your phone. So look if it's a supported file!
i am trying to download music from my library and okline and when its downloaded it will not play, just comes up with message "unsupported file format"
To HotMyK: When playing the speaker uhu it's kinda normal for my ears no annoying background sounds. With the headseat it's like that you have a little more bass (3d) but 3d is off. But it's only my words it's better to hear it for your own, so you have the idea how it sounds.
wanna put ur phone in silent mode....just press the right hand bottom most button for 2 sec....same to exit from silent mode as well...
can anyone tell me about the quality of the sound when playing MP3's in the headset or speaker?
-To JJT: hehe yeah ofcourse.
-To Vinni: Maybe you should set up a name or a map for it where you can import your files trough there.
-To Reddy: aiit that's a bit sucky. but yeah nothing is perfect.
My opinion of the sliding mechanismn, well i love the sliding, but for the camara they could set it in the sliding to prevent damage
but at another side it's handy so you don't have to open your phone for it.
I'm a normal user, i sometimes listen to MP3's and other things but for the rest of it i make calls and receive and that things.
The comfort of the keyboard is nice for me just the right size:).
This is just my opinion of the ABC :)
the phone is difficult to use as it has no silent button therefore it always is either on melody and vibration. this can be very irritating
I am having a problem syncing the phone with my Outlook 2003 calendar. All my appointments go into the phones Miscellaneous calendar tab and therfore they have no location. Does anyone know how to fix this?
