i got samsung e-590 and messages can only be stored up to 200 and not 1,000 as posted in the review of this fon. it's disappointing but overall fon is so small, handy and features are very superb.
I just bought the phone and it's so impressive...I hope I will not meet future problems with the phone...It's so perfect and not to tiny for my hands...great graphics...May I ask pls. somebody to tell me where i can get an antivirus for the phone E590?
mate if you want to ask something please in 'ENGLISH' :)
if you wanna find apostroph when you're typing message please click the RIGHT SOFTKEY until you find a bundle of SYMBOLS
This may sound pretty stupid, but I can't find the 'apostrophe' when texting - I'm guessing it should be on the '1' button, but after going through all the punctuation marks... I can't find it, anyone know what's going on?

I switched to this phone after four weeks of Samsung's U300 because that phone's keypad was just too difficult to get used to!
BUT... the samsung E590 is one nifty little phone! It fits in my pocket or bag super easily and is so light!
The buttons are a little small, but I like my accessories that way, so that's good.
The camera function is fantastic and really functions like a digital camera. It's user-friendly in that way, and has more than enough options for a snap-and-save person like me.
The sound is good, although I wish that it allowed me to use my Music files for the calender reminders and SMS messages. Anyone know how to do this? :)
While the joystick control takes a little getting used to (I keep selecting accidentally, instead of scrolling) it is, like all the keys, really touch-friendly.
I don't know about the slow speeds of reading from a separate card as I haven't needed the extra space. 90MB is more than enough! In fact, my wallpaper images alone (about 25 of them) only take up a mere MB!
Small grouses I have about the E590 are:
1. Can't use own music or sounds for calendar or Text Messages
2. Can't name playlists
3. Can't view video in full-screen
4. Slightly fiddly little joystick
But overall, this is one really neat phone. I thoroughly recommend it. :)
so it could only store 200 sms?
too bad than...
does anyone know how to upgrade the sms storage?
anyone has tested jBenchmark Java 2 on E590? it read my E590 only has 65k colors not 262k ??? www.jbenchmark.com
Response to Sara's comment. How do you not know how to turn the phone on silent?

There is no built in answering machine in E590 mate :) it's really nice to SMS with this handset, between the keypad press and display at the screen has no delay, any one has one with NETFRONT BROWSER and INTERNAL SMS 1000 storage ???? mine only 200 sms with OPENWAVE BROWSER :(
can ant one plz tell me does samsung e590 has built in answering machine as d900/u600
thanks in advance.
some answer for the "open" questions below.
screen is small but good.
it is sms friendly. i still do it blind ;-)
i miss the flash. furthermore a small thing during sms/mms. T9 give sometimes a wrong word and if you want to change it later you have delete it and type the right word again.
With my previous E870 you could change the word by standing behind it and use the change button. but that's all.
i like this phone a lot. i bought it for 170 eeuro NIB.
