Quick questions for you guys that already have the phone.
1. Can you play mp3's as the alarm or are they set?
2. Does the phone have speakerphone?
Thank you for all of your help!!!
Have a great day.
I think u can get it for 400usd in us, my friend just told me that he's ordered one for my at that price~
Recently purchased one, overall a good phone for the price; would recommend.
Will not concentrate on the goods points (of which there are many), will write more on disadvantages which potential buyer would not know about from ads and salespeople.
Good news first: Data cable and CD IS INCLUDED (no mention of this on box or brochure), reasonable price, reasonable amount of memory (not expandable, but for me didn't mind, keeps the dimensions small), small in size and no external extenna, the black is funky and stands out from the silver crowd, reasonable screen (Sharp GX25's still the best in my books).
Con's: no IrDA (why Bluetooth, but no IrDA, faster to establish connection with infrared, takes about 30sec just to establish a Bluetooth connection, although transfer speed is reasonable), why does Samsung persist with linking the centre pad button with WAP access (only on the home screen, within menus Samsung finally listened and made it the select button), contact book an improvement over previous samsung attempts, but still inferior to latest sonyericsson. T9 not default in phonebook entry, have to change each time. Short battery life. The external screen is very small, smaller than the similar E720 (80x64 vs 96x96), why Samsung? Can't turn on the flash in closed flip mode. Picture (1.3megapixel) from camera is still grainy (average to other company's).
oh dailaba, how much did u get it for in HK? i would very much like to know, thank you~
hey guys, im from oz. the phone is now available in crazy johns n fone zone at around $43 a month(includes $20 calls). n Bshop is selling D500 for $33/month... i've seen some ppl who drive 91 commodore use D500... (NO OFFENCE) C'mon guys, get this one n leave chubby D500 to olden days... cheers
your best bet buying this in the US is ebay. there are several sellers that sell them totaling (phone+s/h) around $370-$390 for these phones.

reasonable price i know in Canada is around $500 - 550 CAD...i think US is like $450 - $500 USD
oh...one more thing...yes, it does support chinese (traditional or simplify).
hi guys, i got the black glossy one from hong kong and the key pad does light up in blue. basically, i agree this is a cool phone to own but again, as i have mentioned in my earlier message, the battery runs out pretty quick if you use different functions a lot. other than that, i just love this phone.
hey alex, dunno when optus gets it. just going by an earlier post from someone that telstra has it for the first month, and then everywhere else can stock it
im the alex from aus, i noticed another 1 from the 'us', lol well anyway, hey kitty, how long until optus gets it? i dont think i would be able to get it outright anymore. and yeah it seems tihs is the phone i am after, thanks, and i hope you get the phone you are after too :) goodluck and thanks for all the help/info earlier. :)
Ok so.. I see that on the silver version of this phone the keypads lights up blue and on the black version it lights up a different colour... Can anyone justify this??
Yeah the glossy black is at fone zone and crazy johns right now!! Go check it out! Its farkin sick! Yeeew!
Does anyone know which model is released in Australia? Glossy or matte black? Cheers!
Does anyone know where I can get a reasonable price to purchase the Samsung e730 in the U.S.?
I just purchased this phone Yesterday and I must say IT IS AMAZING! I work for a large wholeseller in NYC and i have owned 3 phones since I got T-Mobile 8 months ago. I had the Palm Treo 650, Black RAZR V3 and now the Samsung E730. The Samsung blows the other ones AWAY. This phone DOES have speakerphone, the FM radio is CRYSTAL clear, and the MP3 player is really cool. The 1.3 MP camera looks like a real digital camera and the bluetooth works great. The phone also looks really nice, very small and nice looking. The internal and External displays are AMAZING. SAMSUNG HAS GONE ALL THE WAY WITH THIS ONE. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED
