D6000 v W800 I have both and I am deciding which one to keep. The W800 is a fantastic phone but looks like a cheap toy. It has a few good features and the camera is second to none. The W800 screen is very small and not as clear or bright as the D600. Though still performs well. HOWEVER!! these phones (W800) still have major firmware issues with there "Disc2Phone" software and even today Dec 19 05 SonyE cannot offer a solution to the fault. In all the The D600 is a far more useable handset with far better audio quality then the W800 and the TV out feature is great. shame only comp video though. buy a 512mb card for for £30 online and it blows the 800 away. I think as a direct phone for phone comparison after a few weeks with both I will return the W800. If you do consider the W800 check out the problems with the file transfer first. Do a Google search for W800 Disk2phone and see the THOUSANDS of threads refering to the faults with these using R1N035 firmware. SE will fix this one day but not this side of new year as the updated firware still has a whole list of bugs. Sony Ericcson have removed there update servive from the site as the latest version is just as bad. I must admit I had already decided that I wanted the W800 simply because I trust the Sony brand name more. Its going back and I'm keeping the D600. I'm trying to be as unbiased as I can and consider the coments on both phones to be fair. The Samsung D600 gets my vote simply because I works without fault and the W800 caused to many issues to list.
there is only 2 skins in this phone? Is there a way to get more skin?like the one in D500/E720, they hav four & the orange is good but in D600, i dont like either skin.. tnx...

I have this phone about 1 month and I found one minus, you can't change sms ringtone to your own mp3, midi file and etc, you can choose only from 10 ringtones. This phone is very good, nice and worth 9 score.
GOOD LUCK for users of D600! :)
hi there i have got a D600 on pay as you go form only £279 and its one of the best phones ever and i even loaded a lot of mp4 music so yes every one you can buy it on pay as you go
You don't need a contract to get this phone. You can buy it from one of the many online stores offering the phone. It is true you can probably get the phone cheaper if you sign a contract with a provider.
andy music: you prob dont have a good firmware version. Flash your firmware when they start comming out.
shaun: if it doesnt detech the bluetooth device. turn your phone off and back on(kinda like a restart) then it should pick it up.
Can people give me their opinion on wheter they think the D600 really needs 3G? I am stuck between the D600 and Nokia N70 (which has 3G) Is it worth getting the 3G phone despite the problems I have read about the N70, or do I get the D600?
ive just bought a d600 but when i search for devices it says no bluetooth device found, why is this ?????
hi everybody I´ve just got samsung D600 but when I tried to download videos on it, something keeps on happening, I managed to download the video, the only problem is that they play just I few minutes and then stop and the music keep going, what can I do?
I was very excited to see this Samsung cellphone model on this website. Later I decided to change my exisiting cellphone, Nokia 3230. As I purchased from Advance Telecom in Pakistan, cellphone that I got opened its package was faulty, it resets automatically as soon as reach the 7th wallpaer image in Pictures and gallery. The company replaced it with a brand new handset. And I donot know why this piece has the same disease. Then I realised why people like Nokia.
Nokia is Nokia.
Downloaded pictures: you cant zoom in
Pictures that you took with the camera: you CAN zoom in
At last I didn't understand:
Does D600 have 'Zoom in' option for downloaded JPG files??
One said YES and one said NO !!!!
I just got an email from Samsung and there is no battery issue they gave me a list of instructions of how to charge your phone. Basically dont turn your phone off or on when your charging it.
vickyicq: I didnt change any setting for my phone, i didnt try wat "teacher" said or mess with the "gains table" not sure if both instructions are the same.
a couple of my mp3's were converted using windows media player ...hm..
well my mp3's are just as loud as the ring tones.
For those who say this phones speaker isnt loud enough: omg your going to be deaf in 5 years.. j/p
well my D600 isnt as loud as soundmate on the D500 however the sound from the D600 was clearer than soundmate.
But most of this stuff is all subjective analysis. /shrugs
Batery life pretty good to me.
To whom it my concern, I bought my phone from Samstores (paid USD 512 at the time) and my batery works just fine, it goes for about 40 hrs with medium usage. Maybe a bunch of phones came out with a batery problem and the rest are fine.
Thanks for the reply. I'll keep trying, maybe the problem is when I convert it from .cda to .mp3 with my windows media player ? what kind of software do you use?
It's funny, cause as I said, when I play the default ringtones and midi songs that come with the phone, it is loude enough.
BTW, what do you thing about that volume code "Teacher" posted?
does anyone know if that code *#8999*8378# actually works if you want to control the volume of the mp3
about merbyn comment if its true im mad because could get no help when told people it was flat after 4 hours playing mp3s & returned it..the big thing that i was trying to explain was the heat in the battery which was abnormally high on my d600!!!when i was on my 14th charge it was on my pillow & with no lies it was hard to pick it up because the battery was so hot!it is areally good handset & mean that but now looking towards the n90 or se w900 but there again the reports are coming in of appelling battery life...i can only assume that within 1 day sum people only do a few texts and fone calls and therefore the battery will last but when there reporting up to 7 hrs taltime and things are failing at the 4hr mark & the batterys red hot it suggests that the batterys power is going to very near short circuit properties as a fault!!i really hope merbyn is true! but remember tne ipod nano & other faults,, companys dont admit to there faults but this is a great phone
