Hey current D900 owners, I just have a couple questions. How solid is the phone's overall structure? Would it survive a drop on the ground? And how solid is the slide mechanism? Any comparison to D500/D600? The sooner I know, the sooner I can buy mine! Thanks! :-)
Now, while i have nothing against Yanks, i cant help thinking that my dear 'freinds' from across the pond have once again 'out done' themselves.
Rather than find a US compatible charger - which will probably cost a lot (think about delivery) - why not just go to your local thrift store and buy a US power socket to UK power socket adapter???
They would surely only cost about $8 at the very most??
A US charger for the Sammy D900 will probably set you back $30 at least.. Not that i know this, but my assumptions are usually accurate. But surely the above is a far better idea, not least if you've clearly spent a fortune on the phone and shipping - time to start saving the 'cents' not sh*tting out more of them..
Most of the D900s (like mine) will be black. You will be hard pressed to find the other colours. THis is because when a phone is first released (the D900 is still only a week young), the default colour (black in this case) will always ship first with 'other' colours shipping at a later date.
Or at least i know that Nokia definately does this. The only reason that i can think of as to why mobile phone companies do this is because the other colours make the phones 'exclusive' (cos they are rare) and so customers who may be bored with the current model might be more inclined to buy the phone in a new colour.
And yes, people are that petty. It's why we're ruining the planet.
ALSO, you CANT change the covers. They are fixed. Try removing them and you'll have to try buying a new D900...
Also, very rarely do you get to choose what colour phone you get unless the dealer is competant and has certain colours in stock.
On a 'general' basis, the phone works a treat. I should hate it as well, what with going from geeky Symbian to 'standard' phone software. But i am very impressed with the Sammy D900 OS - its very well thought out and structured. Nowhere near as versatile as Symbian, but one of the best "static" OS's i've used on a phone.
Menu interface is very good. The icons look very bold, fresh and crisp courtesy of the QVGA screen. They are not dull either like other phones.
Accessories will 'vary' according to which country and supplier you buy the phone from. But most D900s will come with charger, PC software, battery and headphones.
The TV out cable is NOT included. Strange cos Smasung have outdone themselves trying to market this useless feature, but i suppose it means you have to sh*t out another £30 to Sammy if you are bored enough and geek enough to go out and buy it...
I bought a SanDisk 1GB microSD card for my new D900 and found that it would only detect 512MB. However, I did a full phone reset by entering the code *2767*3855# and it can now see the full 1GB!! Be warned though, if you try this you will lose all your settings and phone numbers stored in the phones memory (multimedia files are safe)
Wats the phne lke on a general basis
And also : menu interface
what accessories does it come with !!!
yo thanx stacy
do u need to bye the phone the colour u want or are is it covers u can change by yourself
hey coffee i would help u if i could but i dont have the phone yet
but anyways since you have the phone plz can u tell me what colour it is... it it black like this one http://www.mforum.ru/news/data/0607180079.htm
or grey like this one
i just got the phone yesterday with a 1gb card. the memory card works fine, but i was just wondering how do you transfer files from your pc to the memory phone?
other than that, the phone is amazing, sleek, sexy, amazing functions. Although i dont like the fact that if you store your songs on memory card, you HAVE to pick the songs one by one, UNLESS they're playlisted but you only get 4 playlists max and 30 songs in each folder.
the camera is pretty good but you cant compare it to the se k800, thats unfair. they're 2 different phones made for different reasons.
is this reli the D900 http://www.mforum.ru/news/data/0607180079.htm
cause it looks more black but i thought it was grey
i just got my d900, but it came with the british style charger, and iam a "yank". What other phones from samsung have this same kinda charger? ill just go to ebay and get the charger from a compatable phone.
Hi im thinking about getting the D900 does it play videos and in what format
If you have the D900, why not just find out yourself?
It's like asking someone if you can walk on stilts, when you already have a pair of legs to find out..
Battery life: I have charged once so far, about 1.30 hours of talk, played with java, texting not much, the batterly lasted 4 days.
samsung claims talktime being 6.5 hours.
but again, that's after the first charge, when the full capacity is not reached!
I would try ordering online from the States. I dont know how the exchange rate is working at the mo, and i know you Mounteys would rather take a running leap than have anything to do with a Yank (like most of the world), but, well....
To the other guy
Battery life: I'm not sure yet. Being 'excessively' intelligent, i actually wasnt charging the phone properly, thinking the final bar in the battery symbol that flashes meant the thing was 'fully' charged. SO my battery performance has been balls.
However, i have now charged it properly and a day later after a 15 minute phonecall and 6 pictures, there is still full battery life..
hi all D900 users, a Q for all of u, how's the bateery life like on this mobile set??? what's the average like with standard usage??? how many days does it lasts for??? thx first for all the coming responses..regards...
Thanks for that Dad. Useful advice as usual.
And Tommy - well it wouldnt surprise me if you can put more than a 512 inside of it. I was 'papraphrasing' so to speak from the D900 website. But its so full of mistakes (and apparently only went live today) that i should imagine the stated 512mb limit is also wrong too...
juz got my d900 today but notice it doesn't c/w tv output cable!! does any1 fm s'pore knows where can i get it or is there chance 2 get it? juz stunned w samsung excluding e vital part of its accessories..... ;(
to clear a few things up, i currently DO have a 1gb memory card in my d900... sp whoevers going on about 512 been the max is obviosuly alittle confused...
also... there is a 'sent messages' folder, is there neway that ALL the messages i sent automaticly go in that folder? as only my mms seem 2... and well its anoying, for example u go out get wasted, wana no wat u was txting ppl n carnt lol... other than that love the phone
