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!!
In Sep last year i bought this phone, and its been the best phone i've ever had. I cant fault it in anyway at all.
My Samsung D900 arrived today and even though it has better stuff on it i still believe the E530 is better and i'm even considering using the E530 now even though i have a brand new just released phone.
hi-im still thinking of whether i should buy this phone or not-i really like it but some people are disouraging me from buying it and now im confused! :/ btw, does the phone have caller id pls?!
hii plz anyone tell is this fone good or not cause i'm confused between E530 n D600
Hey, i got this phone about 6months, reception is a bit crappy and on this new mxit chat application i keep disconnecting which i dont know why, but my phone holds alot of memories thats the only reason it keeps me hanging on to it. Thanks 4 making a compact phone with such gr8 picture quality.
I didn't get a cable with the phone itself - i.e. inside the box with the other included accessories, but the outlet gave me one for free.
I keep hearing people saying that this phone is really crappy in terms of reception and whatnot..
Mine works fine and I have no problems with it..
If you do have a problem with it, it probably isn't the phone, but your service provider.
hey omg i luvvvvv this phone the moment i saw it i feell in luv with it i totally wish i could get it do u know how much it is in china or if it seellls in china???

hey amy, i just read your review.. and with uploading photos.. did you have to buy that usb cable separately? or did it come with the phone.. because I didn't get one..
hey. does anyone know how to upload photos from the phone to the computer..?
Hiya all. LOVE LOVE LOVE this phone. The camera is not fantastic, 1 MP really isn't that great (but i haven't try taking pics with the flash on yet) but this phone is just so beautifully designed in terms of physical design and menu/OS/screen. You won't regret it! It has great reception and sound (for MP3s and ringtones).
anyway, wanted to post bc read some ppl had issues with installing the drivers for USB related functions. the samsung software has a lot of room for improvement. but it does work. go to www.samsung.com and then the relevant webpage for your country/region. click on SUPPORT. select your phone model. download and install ALL the software available. you will get a warning message from windows saying that the software hasn't been tested for windows or something along that line. i haven't had problems so far so i guess it's install at your own peril. i found after installing it still didn't work. don't uninstall. restart your computer. then plug in the the USB cord with the phone on. windows will keep finding new hardware. keep selecting, "i will choose the driver to install myself" - windows comes up with the driver anyway, and so keep clicking on install, despite all the warning messages. after windows stops finding new hardware, start file manager or image editor (which you would have downloaded and installed from the samsung website along with the drivers). you will find that you can download all your photos and manage your phone book/sms/etc. phew, that's it! hope it's readable!
Hey, just wanted to know if anyone knows of a good site to download games to this phone by using bluetooth. Please reply here if you know, thanks
This phone is the best and the most beautiful thing ever. While speaking I hear better than ever now and I am heard better than ever. It has everything I need and even more. The camera is really great, the sound of the mp3 player is just the best (when I use my headset it sounds much better than my real mp3 player, the phone is like I have a surround system in my ears with wuffer and stuff). I have put more than 30 games on the phone now and there is still so much place for more! And the woman's life apps.. Wow! The calculator and the other apss are the best too, so easy to use with the special keys on the screen and so beautiful.. I am really in love with this phone.
P.S. I saw some people complaining about something and I'd like to say - it's not the phone itself, it's the place you bought it from or it's your mobile operator (somebody said he couldn't hear a thing for example). And yes, I can listen to the mp3 player while the phone is closed and yes, I have woman's apps, don't complain about it here (and it is said "- Women’s Life apps (in some firmware versions" anyway)).
hello linabeth i already have this for almost a year now. i bought it here in the philippines. I think it is still available
