ive got this phone 3 weeks ago in australia
and i got a memory card with it. however the memory card doesnt fit into the slot ? its much bigger..wat is it ?
You can set the videos as a video caller ID regardless of the size of the video taken specially mpeg4 formats and mpeg4 formats are displayed almost full screen when somebody calls.
here in asia, you do not have to change the mp3 files to 3gp to be set as ringtone and the pictures taken can be zoom in and out using the side keys but not in full screen.
I got this phone and am (for the most part) pleased. Makes the RAZR look like childs play. The only other phone that I would consider getting besides this is the Sony Ericsson Collection but there all BULKY phones. Just two features irritated me, 1. The fact that you have to change the mp3 file to 3gp to use them as ringtones and 2. the fact that your pix don't display full screen in wallpaper mode (only the ones you purchase from t-mobile are). But the phone still gets an A. I just got my 1 gb card in and it works great. 250ish songs! Forget an iPod! P.s. If anyone is having trouble changing the songs from mp3 to 3gp feel free to email me, I'll walk you through it.
can someone send me info on how to put songs as ringtones?? please and thank you this is my email hit me up firstname.lastname@example.org
hey i bought this phone a couple weeks ago, i cant seem to put my songs as ringtones, can someone help me please?, and did u know that whne ur watching a video that u recorded if u press the number one while it splaying it will play on the whole screen pretty neat. well someone please help me out this is my email email@example.com please send me info about any other features and how to put songs as ringtones thanks!
for your questions:
1. Yes, it can vibrate and ring at the same time, vibrate first then rings and rings first then vibrate.
2. No, you are only to choose from the 10 default ones but message alerts has an independent function from the ringing alerts. The options there are melody, vibrate and vibrate first then melody.You can do these functions in your message alert without affecting the ringing alert, meaning you can set the message alert to vibrate first then melody while your ringing alert is set only to melody. Isn't it cool?
Hi. Ive noticed there seems to be conflicting answers to these questions. Can someone PLEASE clarify for me a few things:
1 - Can the phone ring AND vibrate at the SAME TIME?
2 - Can u set your own sounds to a text message alert (ie a MP3 file)?
Please email me any details you have for me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Any help would be greatly appreciated
i think soney ericsson w800 or w810 is way richer in features and many little extra things that make life easier... alot easier. design is exceptionally brilliant too. i own both these phones and i always use my SE... trust me its alot better than you think.. and alot better than the samsung, surprisingly. you will make the right desicion, dont worry. i hope my expert advice and experience helps. its a pleasure
I think it'll be more helpful if all the people who post here say where they are, since there are couple of versions of D820. Mine is Indonesian version.
I have no problem with the mp3 ringtone. There are many ways to use mp3 as a ringtone. The easiest one will be copying the mp3s from your memory card to phone, and you'll automatically find the songs listed under music section when you wanna change the ringtone (don't have to change the extention to *.3gp).
Also, there are debates about how big the micro sd can be. Mine is Sandisk Micro SD 1Gb. So far, I have no problem with it (no lagging, hangging, etc.)
As for additional softwares, Samsung is kinda a hard one since they don't really let you install more stuffs than what they already have. So far, the only way I can put games (I have no luck with putting softwares) inside my D820 is through wap. There are websites out there that lets you put java files on their servers and you can access them from your D820. Even so, there are only certain games that will work on D820 even though those games are Java based. Games that work on D500 or D600 are NOT guarantee will work on D820 since they use different platform while developing this phone.
F.Y.I. about the little things for people who left Samsung long ago because of annoying little things and want to go back to Samsung:
1. You can change the default of SMS (no more T9 default).
2. If you get a phone call while texting, the text won't disappear.
If you're looking for a good looking phone that works fine, D820 might me right for you. If you're the kind of person who wants more than a phone (office, multi tasking, editing videos, or even cooking), stay away from D820 because if you don't, you'll say things like how this phone sucks coz it can't cook for you. Oh, if you don't already know, this phone supports video caller ID (only the video, NOT the voice from the video). Hope this helps.
i experience the same problem with the back of the phone heating up when playing songs or videos. not too sure whether is it a fault, probably should call up the customer service to find out..
My d820 comes with a 64 mb sd card. The card also comes with a case adaptor. In order for you to insert it to the slot, you must take out the very small memory card from the adaptor and insert it to the slot.
I just bought this phone and wow its simply fabulous I looked for V3i but this one is far better than V3i in buid, features and looks but can anyone email me about the SD card that came with this packaging where to plug that in??? though I found a slot for the micro SD what about the extra SD card that I got with this phone?
First off, please read the manual before you rip on the functions of the phone. Most of the options everyone is complaining about is actually available on the phone. For example, ringtone + vibrate is possible on this phone. Please take some time to learn the functions before you cry about it. If you can't figure it out then I don't think you're smart enough to own a cell phone.
well i think this ph is fabulous to use.. u can open flip with one hand for sure.. just take some time and use it.. its very easy to use.. haste makes waste dear.. have patince use it to see how good it is.. :)
i got this phone few days back. well i am speechless. the phone is awesome. i wanted to buy sony ericsson w 800i but then come to think of it, what is the difference of paying 5000 bucks extra for half a megapixel. plus, in front of samsung d820, sony ericsson w800i looks like a brick. it is much bulkier and heavier.
hell i dont want no brick in my pocket.
all i can say is that i couldnt be happier with samsung.
the picture quality is great, sound quality is good(using the headphones), the phone is light, stylish, ..............
need i say more???
im getting a new phone in the next few days and ive narrowed it down to two phones..
1. sony ericsson w8001
2. samsung d820
i would like to know what phone you think is better...
i like the style of the samsung over the ericsson, but im really after the phone for the quality of the camera and music sound quality??
can anyone help me with what phone they think is better for these two functions...
also...what phone takes better pictures in the dark??? this is my main issue...
Has anyone experienced overheating with this phone? Say if you use it or listen to music, afterawhile the circuit compartment starts to warm up (lower back of phone)
Is this suppose to be normal? Or a fault?
ive had this phone now for 3 weeks and love it samsungs are the best i sell phones and we dont get many recalls on them compared to nokia and motorola if you want a easy phone to use this is a winner very nice and i would like some games to please
