I just got this phone last week and I really like it. I've been a loyal Nokia guy and didnt want to change but this phone is just too cool looking.
User interface and functions are not as smart as the the Nokia but it's still good enough.
One thing I need help with, how can I set an mp3 for the messege tone? Ring tone is no problem, but it wont let me do the messege tone.
Another thing, how come I can only edit pictures that I took using the phone? All the pics I imported cannot be edited. Anyone else have these problems?
does anybody have a problem with the battery life?
i have to recharge my phone every 5~6 hours. even when i didnt even talk on the phone.
can it charge from usb like the razr, and can i use a razr charger to charge it?
i have a question more than an opinion, i was wondering can it charge from its USB port, like the razr does.
Got this phone a couple weeks ago....not understanding HOW people dont know how to set mp3's as ringtones.
In menu=settings=sound settings=incoming call
click on the ringtone option, scroll over to 'downloaded songs' and just choose your song.
Thats what I like about this phone. Its so EASY to transfer music and pictures onto the phone for ringtones and wallpapers. (using USB from computer)
There is ONE ringtone that comes with the phone that actually sounds like a ringer and not some weird song, which is a little lame. But I guess if you want more traditional sounding rings you can just download them onto your computer from kazaa or something and just slide them onto your phone.
Great phone, very mature and sleek looking, great sound, quadband is VERY nice if you live in North America, my phone came with a 64megabyte memory chip which gives me tonnes of room. (even without the chip its room for alot of songs and pictures)
Ive dropped it/sat on it a bunch of times and its still fine. Screen is soo bright (my buddy with the razr was really amazed by how small the ports were and how big the screen was)
I wish the menus were a little more customizable...thats the only drawback for me.
Iam using this phone from past 02 months its great no problems and great results waoo thanks SAMSUNG
guys i tried playing media player file and real player file on my D820,but the phone says it doesnt supports the format..can anyone please email me on my email id(firstname.lastname@example.org)and tell me what video format samsung D820 supports.thanx
ok.. now.. for your guys who cannot set mp3 files as ringtone.. Are you people using Samsung T809??
Thats the ruined version of D820. D820 can do lots more. Great video, Vibration and Ringing at the same time and the terrific Picsel Viewer.
From what i know, you guys using T809 are deprived of these functions. I feel really sorry for you guys. I can't imagine it if i bought a T809 instead of a D820. Omg.
But dont worry. It's not all gone. I found a way to set mp3 files as ringtone for T809. I found this on some other forum on the net:
You first have to set your ringtone as a MP3 file then you go through those steps. it should work!
1. Put the mp3 song on your PHONE. (if its on your Memory Card it wont be able to select it as a ringtone later)
2. Go to incoming call settings
3. Select ringtone to see all available (Make sure that your current ringtone is MP3. there should be a couple songs already on your phone that you are able to set as a ringtone, but they suck, of course)
4. Find desired song (it should be greyed out and non-selectable)
5. Then just Highlight it
6. Click middle button (even though it will not allow you to this, the step if a must)
7. Press BACK button
8. Press save. (EVEN THOUGH THE RINGTONE IS STILL THE SAME AS BEFORE BUT SAAAAVE AnyWAYS!)
9. Go back and check your incoming call and it should be whichever song you highlighted.

hey, does anyone know how to use songs that you import from your computer through the usb cable as your ringtones? the "set as ringtone" button is never selectable when i try to set mp3's from my computer as ringtones, please help anyone
yoo wuss up
i think that this phone it damn krazyy
it looks nutz n i like phones that slide up
This phone can open word, excel, powerpoint, TXT, PDF,htm, Jpeg(if file can't be opened by photo viewer,because of high resolution or unsupported format, move to memory card first, then the picsel viewer will open. Picsel viewer will not open Jpeg files stored in the photo folder of the phone memory. Thats what I have tried, but it could open more format.
larry: this phone can display ms word files through the picsel viewer... you can't really see the picsel viewer in on the menu of this phone.. once you select a word file from your phone or memory card, it will automatically open it with picsel viewer..
i think ms powerpoint and excel can be viewed using this one too..
as for photos, jpeg files are opened with the default photo viewer of the phone while other types of photos such as bitmap, gif, etc are opened through the picsel viewer...
hope this helps... :D
this phone is EXCELLENT!! i'm a regular cell phone user and i must say this is the best phone i've ever had in my life..the only flaw is the battery life..after using my phones mp3 player for an hour and a half its battery got low..
i saw one posting that says this phone doesn't accept business cards from other phones...
well in fact this phone can receive business cards from other phones... once you receive the business card, open the message then select "cut media" from the options... you will then see the number that has been sent to you via business card and from there you can save it....
hey hal theres no difference,its just that the t809 is the name given to the phone after it has been branded by t mobile...d 820 is the original model name given by samsung
i believe, there is a post in the samsung x700 how to set your sound any louder. I do not have any problem with the level of the sound, maybe you should go the samsung service to have a tip to increase the loudness of your phone. There is a software to increase the loudness and that is the "ADOBE AUDITION 1.5". There you can increase the volume by +10 db or greater and a lot more.
This phone has 3D sound and amplifier. The sound is supposed to be very loud, but it is very low.Any knows the solution.
hi, am planning to purchase D820...may i know what the actual problems are...is the battery backup good..etc
