btw, don't really preffer to buy this phone, juse spend $100 more to buy nokia n73.
cuz i bought it and it breaks once.
Does anyone have guidelines on setting up the phone as Dial-up/Fax modem?
My D900 serves as my Data/Internet connection for my PC, but how would I use it as a Fax modem. I tried changing my fax printer to use the phone's modem but the call does not connect!?
TO KENNY: 1.Music volume through phone speaker, as I feel, is not as good as SE phones. Ringtone volume also not as loud as SE, but ENOUGH loud and there are methods to make it louder, so thats not a problem.----2.Music quality is excellent through the given stereo headset. Things such as digitally amplifier and 4 equalisers become relevant while using headset.----3.With the musicplayer on, you can do almost all functions, for details enter 'BACKGROUND MUSIC' in the search opinion box at the bottom of this page and search(this is to save space and minimise repetition)----4.Slide show-yes.---5.mp3 for ringtone, alarm, not for message
6. regarding SPECIAL FEATURES OF D900, SEE MY POST BELOW
7.you should know that its battery is not a good performer, (you may compensate this with additional enhancements such as extended battery and external charger). If you are new to Samsung, know that chances of customisation are less compared to other brands esp nokia. you can't download themes, only in-built tones for sms, camera is very good but flash not powerful- so night photos bad. Samsung phones are generally known for the unmatchable display quality.
To AP. Yes you can lock most things on the D900. Go MENU 9 - 7 - 5 (Privacy) and make your choice.
I'm planning to buy this phone but still not sure that it's really perfect(though it sounds brilliant after viewing the other opinions), so here's some questions that I wanna ask....I would really appreciate all the help I can get!!!
1. Can its sound be compared to a Sony Ericsson phone??
2. Is the sound good with a normal samsung d900 headphones or is there a special one??
3. Can the music player be minimised to be played in the background while I'm doing something else??
4. Is there a "slideshow" function to view the pictures/photos in the phone??
5. Mp3 can be used for...(ring,message,alarm...)??
6. What additional/special features/softwares does it have??
7. What else should I know about this phone??
Does anybody know if you can locktexe messages or pictures on this phone [Samsung D900]? Thanx please let me know, thanx again.
I had to talk to Samsung about the keypad tone, which I found really annoying. In settings make sure that you do not have any themes selected. then you will be able to turn off the keypad tone
FOR ANYBODY PLANNING TO BUY THIS HANDSET,
HERE ARE SOME OF THE SPECIAL FEATURES OF D900
1.LIVING WORLD (THEME) WALLPAPER- The wallpaper is a picture of an important landmark of the country in which you are.(House of parliament for UK, Tower of Kolalampur for Malaysia, etc)with animations like birds flying etc. When you reaches another country, the wallpaper changes accordingly! It probably uses the operator signals for this. When night falls, night falls in the wallpaper too! There are animations seperately for day and night. When a missed call or new message is there, the animation changes, like, aeroplanes in the day and fireworks at night. When the signal is weak, sky is cloudy and if signal is strong, sky is clear. if no signal(or offline mode) there is another picture of grassy field or like that. The wallpaper speaks!
2.uMenu- A personalised menu of shortcuts. U Menu has two parts. The 'My Menu' shows up on pressing "up' navigation key, it has upto 5 shortcuts of your favourite functions, can be selected from a list of options. This is not a unique feature of Samsung, seen in other makes also. The unique and more intelligent part is the 'Advanced Shortcuts'. For example, type 1203 in idle mode. Press 'Down' navigation key and calculator starts with 1203 on its screen! Press 'Up' key and alarm menu opens with set time 12:03(AM/PM). Press 'right' key and a calendar entry can be made on 12/03/2007. Press 'left', the write-message screen appears and the sms will be sent to 1203, (if it is valid). come back to main screen at any time and 1203 remains there, ready for another operation. Intelligent! This resembles uSearch function in X820 and P310.
(Menu 9-2-5 & 9-2-6)
3.VIVID MESSAGES- Preset words in text messages are replaced by animations. The text becomes colourful and you needn't scroll for viewing- they are 'played'! With the confirmation key, you can play/stop.
4.MP4 VIDEO RECORDING- Many other leading models can PLAY MP4 videos but they record in 3GP (low quality). D900, like many other samsung phones can RECORD videos in mp4 (3GP also)
5.VIDEO CALLER ID- you can record a video and assign to a phonebook entry so that when incoming call from the contact comes, the video is displayed.
6.REJECT SMS- you can reject an incoming call by pressing and holding the side-volume-key( while in a meeting etc). When you do so, a preset text message(created earlier by you)is sent to the caller for explanation, and of course, with your conformation. you can set the function also to reject without the sms and alternatively to mute the tone when it rings.
7.SOS MESSAGE- When this is active, if you press the volume key 4 times in idle mode with keypad locked, an emergency message is sent to 10 preset numbers. If any of these numbers calls back, the phone automatically connects without waiting for you to press the green key. All the operations are done silently with vibration. Useful in emergencies.
8.MOBILE TRACKER- A useful application for recovering a lost/stolen phone. For details click:
The phone features as a modem via USB (I suspect Bluetooth also) and that serves as my Data/Internet connection for my PC, but how would I use it as a Fax modem. I tried changing my fax printer to use the phone's modem but the call does not connect!? Does anyone have guidelines on setting up the phone as dial-up modem?
MAI. Camera good - Yes.
Flash comes in handy as a torch - nothing more.
CALLER IMAGE/VIDEO CALLER ID- ANY video MP4 or3GP can be set as caller id for a particular contact. The video should remain in the phone memory, not in the mem card
Kofi, Yes it will ring- cause it only turns down the keypad tones :)
MUNCH, the default password of the phone is 00000000(eight zeroes), for all purposes.
Change it immediately.
Kofi; (Video recording settings)
Recording mode - Normal....size - 320x240....Quality - superfine is the best but will take more bytes. So you can't continously record long videos. for short videos 5-10 min, superfine suitable. For long videos select 'Normal'.....View finder- Standard ratio view(never put in full screen view or while playing, you'll see things you didn't actually want to record! )....White balance- won't recommend auto. see my post for camera settings, below....and better keep flash 'off'(the only use of it is to discharge batery)
If you want to set a video clip as caller id for a contact, set recording mode; LIMIT FOR MULTIMEDIA MESSAGES, size 176x144 and you can record upto 30-40 seconds, after recording, from options, choose 'SET AS CALLER IMAGE'
WHILE PLAYING VIDEO, PRESS 1 FOR FULL-SCREEN
In some versions, there is this feature. So while making a call, select options and check whether it is included. if not, you can try this method:
When the conversation starts, type #*22671#. A message will announce recording started. press 'c' to exit. To stop recording type #*22672#. To pause, type #*22673#. Then go to my files...sounds..my voice clips to find the saved conversation.
1.enetr the digits carefully.
2.DON'T FORGET TO TYPE #*22672# after conversation, or it will continue recording!!
3. I needn't say, we must use this legally.
Kofi Its the button on the left hand side of the phone just turn it down to 0 (zero)
to rrrc,,,im using between 3x 1gb memory cards at moment in transflash size which has now changed to micro sd format as part of the sd family..It is suggested that sd format would be the way forward a few years ago but not absolutly sure that it still is and the only diff between mmc and sd is the lock part on the card itself..I am using sandisk,,toshiba and mobymemorys own micro sd cards with perfect ease but their is a problem with some d900 not accepting 1gb while some can take the 2gb cards..If you go to mobymemory or samsung sites they only will positivly assure you that a 512 mb card will work but i am fairly positive that if you buy sandisk 1gb it will work,,WHY sandisk well im going on what everyone else says that they are the best and a safe bet and coincidently wen i bought jessops (uk) own brand of memory card it come up on my comp as sandisk !!!Its one of those questions that if samsung cant even answer the question for people and they dont even know that their are different samsung d900"s about then the consumer has no chance.!!
Is it not possible for you to ask somone with a 1gb card to see if it works because i use the cards in my lobster 700tv and a motorola v3x on the three network and record off the tele using the sandisk v-mate video recorder ok..but the v3x does store vids,,photos,,songs in different folders which show up outside the main d900 folders,,i say this in case you try this and the folders do not show and automatically assume a 1gb will not work..
I tell you somthing these people on the end of fones trying to diagnose a fault must be really,,really tolerant because answering blind questions on this forum is a nightmare wen your not seeing the device and then trying to explain it to somone who may not understand what you are meaning,,,imagine wanting a computer to go on the net with, bringing it home setting it up the CRASH you have wrecked it cause it full of worms and bugs because you did not have firewall/anti-virus on it ,,,,in other words wat if you did not even know you had to have these things on it????? I would like manufacturers to give a full list of the fone you buy and exactly wats,wat and they should know if they test it and this kind of info shud be their in your face.. Urgent cautions should be right in your face as you open the packaging to get to your purchase a booklet of urgent do"s /dont"s and then the customer or end user knows exactly whats wat and things would inevitabley be a lot simpler and we would know where we stand...
I may have perhaps gone over the top BUT perhaps gone over the top is exactly wats needed !!!
