A very nice phone which I got because MTN seem to have some issues with Sony Ericsson and had been promising release of teh SE K750i every month since June 2005. Now I've been told it's March 2006. So I gave up and got the Samsung D600 instead.
I'm very pleased with it; just one problem though: unlike the D500, the D600 model cannot as yet retrieve e-mails from a mailbox at intekom.co.za. There seems to be a protocol problem somewhere in the system. I've been involved with lots of troubleshooting with Telkom and Samsung (MTN don't seem to be interested) and I was told this week that Samsung are now working on it with Telkom.
Hopefully the problem will be sorted out soon, although it's been a month since I got the handset and it's still not sorted out. Hold thumbs!
I want to buy a phone: Samsung D600 or Nokia 6270 ? I like this phone.I have some quetions.
1. It comes with a memmory card in the package?
2. What is the max storage?
3. It woks great on the internet connection? I use Orange Network(romania).
4. What you prefer Samsung or Nokia. Thanks
to set as mass storage
menu->settings->phone settings->usb settings->mass storage
or get a tflash/microSD card with a card reader.
i hve 2 important things 2 say firstly all the battery issue is a bunch of nonsence i hve used my fone 2dayz continuesly nd the battery is stil full heres a tip, charge ur fone using the USB because this charges ur battery fully unlike the chargder which doesn't, secondly hw do u use the USB as a mass storage because the softwer is 2 slow nd i wna use the USB so tha i kn jus copy nd paste things 2 my fone NY help PLZ
Please can anyone tell me why samsung have put mms templates on the D600 that are too big to send?
I really dont get this!
can anyone tell me what OS it is running? and can i get putty and msn like apps for it? and if i can... where can i get it? beside from having to struggel finding info on the OS the phone is great.
the d600 is an amazing phone people,
the resolution and pure quality of the screen is unbelievable. the camera and video recording capability is fantastic. when i take photos of my mates at a party and show them, 100% of the time they are blown away and ask me what phone it is.
As they say "nothing is perfect" though:
1)u cant view ur pics in full screen. ???. (you can only see it full screen right after you take a pic, and thats when you are blown away with its quality [screen and photo])
2)ur mmses cant be larger than 300kbs(I dont know if this is only in South Africa, can someone tell me if this is the case world wide?)
3)the clock doesnt stay on when in power-save mode (screen saver) and you have to push and hold the side volume button to see the clock, further more, you have to press OK to see if you have a message or missed call.
4) My previous phone was a Sony P800, so I was spoiled with its ablity to surf the internet. the d600 browser is not great but it is better than all the other non-PDA phones out there.
dont get me wrong, I am convinced that this is the best phone on the market today (09/DEC/2005) and if I had to start naming all the great things about it, it would take me all day.
nothing else compares really...
Software is too slow. Set the phone to mass storage to transfer or buy a microSD/transflash card and a card reader for it. Tranfer would be faster that way
Reason why its not a regular plug cause the tv out is comming form the same plug
yeh i hve my D600 nd im uploading songs using the software bt it's 2 slow i herd u kn use tha usb as lyk a stoarge unit wer u kn jus copy nd paste kn ny1 tel me hw 2 do dis plz thanks
greg: yes, you can assign different ringtones for every person. the number must be on the phone instead of on the sim card.
sean90: battery life is expected. Its a phone not a mp3 player, not a camera. If you have everything going it kills ur battery life. You can get 3 days of normal talk time, but if i wanted to, i can drain the battery in a day. You can record prob 1hr, transfer the vid to the expansion card and record again. It doesnt record directly to the expansion memory. Reason why is it takes too long to write on the microSD/transflash.
kerry: D600 is droping really fast. its like 385 at plemix.com factory unlocked.
claire: Just edit the pictures with your computer to 240x320 pixel, then the picture will come out full screen. D600 cant edit pictures or not to my knowledge.
I am sad that it does not have a regular plug for headphones. It has a wierd samsung one. And what kind of phone does not have voice dialing. Why have bluetooth if you can't use a headset for voice dialing. Stupid. Bummer.
well im 15 nd jus gt dis fone nd i wud jus lyk 2 sai tha this fone is tha best!!!!!!!! the screen surpast my expectations, the camera is the best nd heres a tip wen in camera mode press tha numbah 9 a couple ov tyms nd u'll c it'll lyk diffrnt nd on the third time press the colour is SPECTACULAR, i hve 1 problem so sum1 awnser it plz ok wen i video it seems 2 b a bit slow bt on oda d600 it's smooth nd fast y is this sum1 awnser this plz
Does anyone know if you can make pictures transfered by bluetooth bigger whenever you set them as your wallpaper. I know you can do it on editor with photo's but can you do it with wallpaper
is this phone worth buying , ive heard that the bettery life is very poor and the message ringtones are really bad. Can someone tell me how long you can vidoe record for?
Has this phone got Video/Picute editing. Is it better than the Nokia 6280?
i wanna know if you can a different mp3 ring tones 2 different people ?can the d600 do that ?
About the Charger:
The Batter chager provided is a travel charger, thats y is very fast... I also agree that this might be killing the battery..
I think USB charges this phone better...
There was a forum on how to upload games but i cant find it anymore. I guesss someone took it off. I didnt do it myself cause I dont really game with my cell phone, considering the battery life is short enough. Like playing mp3 through my bluetooth headset(A2DP profile) can kill my battery in a day.
1234. Thanks for the GPRS settings, Now I can go on-line with my d600.You know a lot about this phone. now i'm have a problem finding any games that support the d600.
