the only prob. is the lcd! very weak life! i just bought it a month ago, and i noticed that the screen starts to turn dark and blur! thanks to its 1 year warranty and samsung's service center guaranteed me that they will replace o fix it! but for how long? they said that it will depend on the availability of the part!ow geeh!it is still available in the market but they don't have enough stock of its parts! ooooh! what a life without cellphone!
Is there a setting to make SMS save to the phone memory by default? All my messages save to SIM for some reason and it runs out at 25 :(
hello again you can silent the shutter sound via the mode button on the side, but, can anyone tell me how to turn off the low battery sound - except for recharging :)
and how can i make it ring loud instead of vibrate when it's connected to the pc as mass storage/memory card?
I bought one of these recently, and find a couple of problems.
Can anyone tell me how or where to turn off (make silent) the noisy camera shutter. I cannot find it in 'settings'.
Secondly, where is there a safe source of 'drivers', to enable me to transfer photos via USB cable?
i don't know, but the design is very funny and simply. ehmm... i think with the poor price this phone is good. he he he. not to ugly for this phone. i give score 7 to samsung mobile. please don't compare with SE k550i because not same class level phone.
hey! guy any body know . how's the internal and external sound quality of this phone... and how much cost should i pay for it.
Ordered my new E590 (Black) online from www.1shopmobile.com and received it two business days later on 5/9. Just what I was looking for, small yet packed with features like Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, handsfree, 3mp camera and decent talk/standby time. No problem encounted with my 2gb microSD card and Bluetooth easily paired to my SE HCB-105 Car Speakerphone.
I have 2 GB ("Premium") memory card in my phone and have had no problem (in this department) so far.
One can also save in those 2GB loads of music and then move songs to the 4 x 30 playlists. And if those 120 pieces of music are not enough, 2GB wont be either. You can change those playlists, all right? don't like one song ..30 songs - change them with some other material from your memory card! OK?!

on something completely different -
I'm still not done with my "headphone problem". The original do not fit me and I have not discovered the way to buy a substitute. I wish I could get those -
but it seems that they are very rare and sold only from the offcial samsung store, only in the uk. Is that so, or is there some way get them elsewhere too?
To make things even more difficult - in their uk online store they have different number for the same product.
May be other headphone models also fit for e590? Any thoughts?
Hello again, thank you all for advices. I got the phone yesterday (the e590, of course - it's about 120 USD in my cowntry) and i's amazing - it's so small and packed with functions! I do dislike these tho things: the fact that plugged in headphones get in the way of volume keys and the fact that musicplayer accepts only 4 playlists x 30 songs each or something like that - is there a workaround that? And does it support 2gb microSD? The seller said that he only recommends 1gb for e590.
HEY MOBILE LOVERS..anyone knowing how to install a dictionary viewer on E590?...or is there any way i can do it..or is there any dictionary software available[even if I have to buy it]?..SERIOUS SUGGESTIONS PLEASE
Thanx a million for your advice! It works + now I've improved my opinion about the phone! I already thought it to be hopless but here you go!
People who write telephone manuals were not obliged to mention this option, of course. Why should they?
Hope you will solve the issue with the picture quality. Black and whites are really great. Especially close-ups and pictures with contrasting dark and bright areas. Look good both ways - printed and on the computer screen.
performance-8, low microfone, low speaker,
on my phone, those pictures size are same. but on display (both on PC) it seem like black area (usually at black line cross or very close black line) on the file from ext. memory having larger area. well i'll contact samsung service center for this.
to move MMS picture to PC, 1st open the MMS massage. then stop it(or waiting untill stop).
after that open option menu, then choose no."6 attached file".
it will display all attach file (picture, sound o video file).
choose the file, then on option menu choose "save in my file" then choose "save in--> memory card". then transfer the file from memory card to PC.
actually on"PC studio" have MMS management fitur, but it not work for E590.
I did as you said -
First, downloaded an image directly from the phone memory to the computer;
then, the same image first moved from the phone memory to the memory card (2GB microSD premium; paid for it equivalent of 8.00 pounds) and then to the computer
both pictures in the computer are identical in size! I moved them to the computer via bluetooth, btw.
Hope this helps.
May be you know whether it is possible to move received MMS pictures from e590 via bluetooth (or some other way) to the computer ( or first to the picture folder and then to the copm.) Do you? Somehow I have not discovered how to do it.
please help me to try to:
take picture with high resolution (save on int. memory), then transfer/copy to PC. then transfer the file from int. memory to ext.memory,
then transfer this file from ext. memory to pc.
please compare it both picture on PC. if you find no problem, it's mean i must contact samsung service center to repair my phone or to my memory card maker.
e590 has no problem with moving picture files form the phone memory to the memory card or a computer. If picture quality is judged by its size as measured in KB - that number remains the same. I checked.
What some users might find problematic is the fact that the phone has no regular socket to connect your headset other then the original or another "Samsung" made headset. Actually I think there is only one extra model that fits that socket - so called "in ear headset". So if somebody wants to choose from all the variety of headsets and then connect it to the e590, there will be some extra job to be done.
Another thing - I even don't know what is in the "PC studio" since I have an Apple computer and as far as I understand there is no way to land "the studio" on an Apple. Well, this is something unbelievably stupid. I expect that with SE phones there comes computer support for both - pc and macs.
E590 could viewing excel, word, powerpoint, and pdf file, k550 can't (as far as i know)even quality not same as PC and max file size is about 2.9MB.
'some' E590 user complaint about camera quality result, MANY k550 user complaint about it and say that this camera not proper with Cybershoot tittle.
k550 having better colour management, but e590 has better resolution.
it's not about battery problem on samsung, but it is the power management chip. sony has much better , but samsung also having improve their product. don't forget to turn off your phone and charge about 6-7 hour when first time you buy the phone (any model)to maximizing batt. performance.
k550 using conventional Sonyerricson design, but e590 has extremely different design than other samsung phone.
k550 having faster processor and WAP software than E590.
e590 didn't bundle the driver CD, so to open the phone memory you need to download samsung pc studio.(but this software include massage management that sonyerricson not have)
e590 is slim, so for gaming k550 is better (controller).
k550 has IR connecton, e590 no (for spect comparation just open the Official website)
on e590 no need to turn off phone when insert or release the external memory card.
e590 has quality problem when transfering picture from int.memory into ext. memory. k550 better.
e590 using micro SD, it's low prize than M-stick pro 2.
e590 has bean bag,
e590 using mp4 format for video, many free converter software for it. (i still not find free converter software for 3gp files).
both of these phone has plus value. choose it due to what you need (it's just my opinion).
E590 has an external speaker!
The phone's size is small and I consider it to be an advantage. If you want a modified "play station" then it would be just reasonable to choose different model with larger screen.
