Samsung Please bring this phone back but with a better camera and more memory. I loved this phone it just got dated!!!!
Anyone help me! I can only store to bout 12 - 16 songs and the memory always hits its limit whenver I download any more songs so I have to delete the old ones. I seriously don't like the size of the memory.
I think I'm doing something wrong with trying to get music to the phone via bluetooth. Could somebody please go through the process for me - step by step - starting with the file I want in 'my music' section of my PC. What do I do to it to get it to my phone? I would be soooo grateful. Thanks.
I purchased this phone after having bought the siemens poppy phone (which I didn't like, although I guess you get what you pay for) and am very pleased with it. Thus far I have had no problems at all, I find it very user-friendly, nice tactile number pad, crisp screen, audio sound is good and no problems with the signal. Only annoyance is that I have to open the phone to see I've had a missed call. Transference of data (photos, music etc) to PC (& vice versa) with a bluetooth dongle is straightforward and I was pleasantly surprised by video camera quality. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a compact phone, with reasonable camera and mp3 quality that is value for money.
Mary Grace, help!! I still can't get the thing to work. I've re-installed it and manage to get a music file (definitely .mp3) into the 'my devices' section and each time I try to select a song it says 'receiving 00%' then waits and bit then disconnects. Nothing goes into my music file at all. Is it a dodgy dongle or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for replying to my previous message.
No, this phone will not work in the US. Its dual band 900/1800mhz. In the US we use 850/1900. Hope this help.
I received the E530 free with my 3 yr renewal of the Int' Hearld Tribune newspaper in Thailand. Great design. Still trying to figure out how to use the Blue Tooth function to download more pics and sounds. Sound quality of calls leaves a bit to be desired. Others talking to me sound like they are in a very small room with a slight echo effect so need to be in a very quiet environment when talking. Not sure if this a tech problem. The function keys take some getting used to as it is easy to straddle 2 keys and make a mistake. Recommended less the sound qulaity issue.
hi can any one tell me if it is easy to send texts, and if the signal is reliable?
Tezza, as I have read in your previous post and I hope I understand correctly that you have indeed managed to download one song into the phone's memory, right? If that is the case, to check if the phone did indeed received the music file (mainly files w/ .mp3 extensions) pls go to the (1)Menu (2)File Manager (3)Music. The song you have downloaded should go there and no where else. If it shows "Empty" it could only mean two things (1) the music file is not a recognized file format (2) the bluetooth dongle you purchased has not been completely installed into your pc and therefore try to re-install it again and use only 1 usb port for the bluetooth dongle (try to remember which usb port you installed it in and use that particular port forever). If all else fails and you still can't download songs to your phone, have the dongle checked at the store you purchased it from because it really might be defective. I hope it's still under warranty or something.
Let me know if you still have problems. Good luck!
I've had my E530 for around 8 months now. It's very reliable and I have had no problems with it at all.
The call clarity is excellent and the battery life is better than any other phone I have come across.
I love the fact that it is unusual and is far more eye-catching than the continuous monotony of black and silver.
I would highly recommend this phone to anyone looking for a reliable phone that is more interesting than the run-of-the-mill!
well,i had bought this phone for nearly a year. the keypad started not functioning well,my phone will shut off automatically when someone called and it continous "hang" for 5 times when i was typing a message.although e530 is very feminine and it produce very good sound,but it is not a very good phone as there is no memory slot which resulted i cant store much information in my phone and when viewing or deleting a picture, i need to wait very long for it to process.my advice for those who are interested in buying e530 is think twice before buying it or you will regret.
Hi Mary Grace, thanks for your reply. I've managed to pair the bluetooth and the mobile - i've even managed to get a song downloaded onto the bluetooth area on my phone. but then i'm stuck. if i select the song it starts up with a bar that says receiving 00% and then after a few seconds it disconnects me from bluetooth. what am I doing wrong? how do i get the song from the bluetooth device into my mp3 player? sorry to be so dense...
really awesome phone.. i got the blue one. so cute and high fashion.. its nice because its so little and it has everything on it.. so cool.. im loving it!
Hi Tezza! regarding ur MP3 question...I also have this phone and I think it's really great and I hope this post of mine might help since you're dealing w/ bluetooth transfers. Well, I discovered that it's easier to transfer photos and MP3s when my pc initiates the bluetooth device pairing. So here are the steps: 1. Your OS is windows XP and turn on/start your bluetooth device. 2.double click the bluetooth icon on ur system tray OR go to My Bluetooth Places. 3. On the left side of the screen there's a section there that says "Bluetooth Tasks". 4. Click on View Devices In Range. Your pc should be searching for devices and that your mobile should appear in the window. 5. Right click on your mobile's bluetooth name and select "Pair Device". 6. A Bluetooth Pin Code Request window will pop up and type on the space provided your bluetooth pin code which is found in your bluetooth manual if not, try this no: 1234 and click ok. 7. The same request will appear on your mobile phone and enter the same pin code that you used earlier. 8. When your pc & mobile has been successfully paired, you can now send and receive photos and music to your phone and vice versa. 9. When you're done, go back to My Bluetooth places, right click the device and select "Unpair Device" 10. Stop/turn off the pc bluetooth device in your system tray.
Good luck and hope this really helps. Let me know if you have further questions. It doesn't work though if my phone initiates the pairing and when pairing to other mobile devices, you have to delete them from your device lists because they won't pair again the next time.
Hi - can anyone help with an MP3 question. I've read a lot of the comments on here about how to get music on my phone - I've bought a bluetooth dongle from ebay, plugged it all in, figured out how to get a song from my pc onto the phone - no probs. Well... ish.... but what next? The song is on my phone under the bluetooth section - but each time I select the song the device disconnects. What's going on? How do I get it in my music file so that I can play it? Can anyone helps. Thanks loads in advance.
all the bad comments on here are not true on my phone, i have had it for 3 months and there is not fault in it anyway what so ever! feel free to email/add me if you have any questions about it! get this phone becasue it is the best ever n i love it1
I see that this is a Dual Band Phone and I was reading on a website where it says that Dual Band will not work in the US. Can anyone confirm whether this is true since I do not live in the US but travel there on business and would need my phone to roam there. And I do LOOOOVE this phone and want to get it!!
