I have returned this phone I just couldn't get on with it. All the pitfalls I described are there according to shop. Have now got a Sony Ericsson W550i which is recently out and so cool!!! Each to their own eh? I just thought Samsung have really made it with the design but not with its features. Pity as it is soooo sexy
I have a Nokia 6230 at present which I use with a Motorola Bluetooth. I would like the E530 but the shop I was in couldn't tell me if the Motorola Bluetooth would work with it. Also they couldn't tell me if there was a car charger suitable for the E530?
Ann-Marie are you sure you can't go to phonebook when you want to send your message?
Yes this phone has MMS. It also does have bluetooth which I have used very easily. It hasn't got a loudspeaker though.
I have used the video a couple of times, it's not very good if your in a room and it's dark outside and you're just using the light but it's ok when you have enough light.
can anyone tell me if this phone has multimedia messaging! i thinking of getting it for christmas. thnx for the person who showed a pic of a photo they took. also does it have bluetooth and loudspeaker. is the video any good.
thnx alot jazz
Of course this phone has a camera. There must have been something wrong with your phone if you could not use it. Click this link to see the pic I took with mine:
As for ringtones, put mp3s on it. I have put loads on mine and set them as my tone.
i thing aboutt this phone it dosent hav a camera it says it doz but really i couldent get into it it always freezes the ringtones are so limited to only like 20!! and this phone is just a pink piece of plastic if your looking for a little sexy phone go for the Sagem MYC5-2 much better its got a camera, you can store heaps of ringtones its got a loud speaker and in a glossy blue or this only for $199!! this phone is $399 and its a rip off!! trust me i used to have it!
Gorgeous phone really sexy but has disadvantages
Keypad only beps or mute even tho other tones available
Doesn't default to T9 after each text
Poor range of ringtones
Limited to 20 messages before full
Front screen only has pic on it for a few secs then blank apart from time
Longwinded text delivery. You have to do at least 5 clicks to send after making text
Doesn't let you go straight to phonebook to send (who remembers peoples numbers!!)
They are things like shopping list, fragrance type, a weight thingy. I find them useless but some people like them.
Q about E530C ....
*How to set a different profile...I dun wan the sound just too high in the office when at outside the sound too soft like mosquito.
**How to set a tone when the batt low...as I didn't hear anything when the batt low and just dead like that.
Hiya, i am gettin this phone for ma bday in like 6 days and i cant w8, anyways it looks fab n i like the pink alot, so now i cant w8!!! thanx
I am in the process of purchasing the above-mentioned model. I understand this model has a caller group system. I currently have a Samsung SGH E600 and find this Caller group system very useful. However, I would like to know if, like my current mobile model, this model has the facility of having a different sms tone for every caller group. For example Caller group 1 - family - sms tone 1, caller group 2 - colleagues - sms tone 2, and so on.
Thanking you in advance,
I hope this link to the pic helps everyone wondering about the quality of pictures taken with this phone. As I said I took that picture of my dogs on the first day I had it and think it came out fine. Click the link and it come up with a big picture.
Just go here to look at the pic taken with my phone:
For everyone woondering about the quality of pictures taken with the Samsung E530 here is a pic I took myself with my phone on the first day I got it.
