I would like to ask if D720 has the ring+vibrate function like D820???I will get D720 instead of D820 if it has this function
to Answer some of the questions,
I had both the vresions..now I have the european one. Other than anyvoice n mp3 lyrics I didnt find any difference. But as I said before the offcial samsung eropean D720 and philipine's D720 has different battery life (check the official site). But its confusing coz i got my european version shipped from Hongkong.
Unlike other Samsung model, here you can set your message tone to any mp3 or ACC. But so far I figured that I can set mp3s or ACC files as my message tone in all rining profile, which when selected applies to all contacts. But I dont know how to set personasied message tones for each contact. Apparently there is no feature like that in series 60 or may be its hidden somewhere and I dont now yet.
can mp3 files be set as message alert tone?coz samsung doesnt have this feature in all their non-smart phones...anyone, tnx..
I bought d720 with no anyvoice n mp3 lyrics. how to compare between the cinese version n the europe version??? I'm from indonesia, i buy that fone for Rp. 3.175.000,- Please give me a help... (sory for my langguage) hehehe...
Ok Kal, thx for your help,i use SEP910i now, may be i must think again to change my phone
disadvantage = mine don't have voice comand but i don't really use it though.. o yea i think the main disadvantage is its MMC Micro, difficult to find in my country (Indonesia)..
OVerall, i love it.. thx samsung for making this fone :)
P.S = no offense for moto fans.. ^^ Cheers..[i compare this fone with 6600,w800i,&Razr v3i]
(almost forget, the default lock code is 00000000, if yours are not written in the manual like mine)
A 64mb MMCmicro is included in the box.Most probably you will get one with MMcmicro as the official Sepecs says.
But the form factor of MMcmicro (12x14x1.1mm) is different from MicroSD(11x15x1mm) and they look a bit different too.They are not interoperable without the adapter.So, No you cant use microSD in the phone.
However when you put them inside the adapter (also included) then it becomes a regular MMC or regular SD and they are interoperable.
MMC card is a little thinner than SD. you can use a MMC in a SD card slot but you cant use SDcard if the device slot is made only for MMC.
Hope this help.
Thx Kal,i plan to buy this phone, how i can know the version of memory card to be use ? They tell in package box ? if i got the mmc-micro version, still i can use microSD ? Thx - SaS
The one I have, uses MMCmicro not microSD. and according to Samsung, MMcmicro is 3.5 times faster than other cards. However I couldn't find even 512mb card in any online store. Hopefully it will be available in 1-2GB soon.
Insterestingly I have seen some pics of D720 and someone even posted here that their D720 version takes MinSD card.
Can Samsung D720 use microSD(TransFlash) memory card ? Many Thx - SaS
Few things missing in 720:
The usual trick to play fullscreen video by pressing '1' doesnt work on this phone. Afterall its a Nokia phone with Samsung hardware. Does anyone know any trick to play fullscreen video in landscape mode. Now i have to install a software to do that.
There is no landscape mode while taking still image either.
Specs says "MPEG4 video recording & playback"
Thats wrong. It records 3GP video, quality is not good. But it plays MPEG4 files.
Audio in bakground:
While playing mp3s press "menu" and exit the menu. Mp3 player goes in background and keeps playing. Now you can write sms or open contacts/callender etc. But you can't open the camera. Then the music will stop.
Unlike my other Samsungs this doesnt have a misscall/SMS indicating light. Service lights doesn't flash. Screen lits up once to show you have a misscall or sms and then goes black after few seconds.Dosnt show time and date after the backlight is gone either.
Anyone knows any tricks or softwares to make this happen..plz post.
after almost a month i'm using this fone, i'ts time for me to post my opinion.. (btw i'm using the English/Chinese version..)
design - i like it very much, small, quite thick, but elegant.. the slider works very good, solid.. the keypad is nice, don hav problem with it
features - the most important feature for me is its symbian (because it is the MAIN reason why i buy a samsung).. i found the ABC button is quite useful, it shows sms & recent program used..
performance - some says that this fone is slow, but i don't feel it, i found 6600 or W800i much slower than this fone.. bluetooth is nice, faster than motorola.. the screen is very good, very clear.. the camera, it's OK for 1.3MP, but again better than motorola.. but in video recording, moto is beter than this fone.. the mp3 player, good, the design, the menu, it also has equalizer.. the handsfree is good, it has bass.. the battery, mine last for 2 FULL days for normal use..
>advantage = symbian, design
Samsung announced a 2GB MMCmicro today.
1 GB MMCmicro supposed to be commercially available this year. So far I can find only 256mb. When D720 was developed max was 512mb. I'm not sure it can take up to 2GB or not.
Anyone knows where to get atleast 512mb MMCmicro?
does anyone one know if tomtom mobile 5 will work with this phone.
Thats not true. I had Samsung E715,A100 and the service light flasehs when I get a miss call or SMS, till I read it.I was wondering why D720 cant do the same. Is it software issue or hardware? Coz this phone use nokia symbian.
Seems this blacklight issue is with all samsung sliders.Wish I can read Date and time always.
it's samsung... you can know incoming msg and call only for the first time, when it's coming.
so, i suggestion is stick with your samsung all the time ^^
Regardless of whatever time setting I have, once the slide is closed and the phone is locked, Display goes black in 10-15 second.
This is bothering me a lot now. There is no light indecator for SMS or missedcall. So basically I have no clue if there is any SMS or missed call. I have to check on my phone for time to time.
Is there anyway to fix it, please post.
Found one posting on ebay from china selling D720 battery.
D720 uses bettery model: BST3108BEC/STD
check it if you are interested.
