I have the Samsung D500 Silver Edition. I do not have any experience with the Samsung E730, but after studying all the facts about this phone on this site, and compare them with my own phone, or any other Samsung D500, this is what i can tell:
The Samsung D500 and the E730 are almost exactly the same (besides the look of both phones of course). Both have the same ammount of memory, neither of these phones have a cardlock, wich means that the memory inside the phone is the memory you have to settle with. That memory can be used for MP3-files, photos, MPEG4 recordings, voice recordings, etc.
There is however one differance: the E730 has been upgraded with a radio. I am affraid i can't tell if that radio is state of the art,if the sound is great, easy to use, etc. Perhaps you could ask the employee at your local shop for mobiles if it would be possible to hear the sound of it? Or perhaps other people at this site could help you out.
Conclusion: E730 has a radio, D500 doesn't. The rest is, from what i can tell, almost the same. So if the radio is something you do not really care about, than i think the phone that looks the greatest (in your point of view of course) is the right one for you.
hey is the phone shiny like this?
or is it just samsung being samsung and adding shiny bits where they dont exist.. its so hot
There's no USB cable included, (I bought a bluetooth dongle which I have found invaluable) and the mp3 player cannot be minimised.
(P.S. -I prefer this over the D500 as it is a flipphone and the D500 is ageing a bit now)
Am new here, but have found the postings invaluable when making a choice to buy a phone. However, am torn b/w two phones...Samsung E730 and the D500. Could anyone please (according to experience) help me choose a phone. Thanks
I just read it . It seems to be a music file , which the E730 can play ...
Just search the web , I'll try it myself as soon as my E730 arrives here :)

I suppose you're talking about networks; "Rogers" is the name of a Canadian mobile network.
vibrating and melody at the same time is possible , you just need MMF Files ...
Hey I think the Samsung E730 is as good as the D500 if not better. Can someone please tell me how it stands against the Nokia 6230i.
hey luke...can ya tell me how the cameras goin. like u know, the quality of pics at each resolution and the quality of videos, sound quality in videos, and pic quality in frames
No, the E730 has the option of: 'Melody'; 'Vibrate'; 'Vibrate THEN Melody' or 'Mute', (it vibrates for 4 times before the ringtone kicks in. To be honest, this doesn't bother me too much as often you will feel the vibrating in your pocket before the ringtone starts and answer it. If you're not keeping it in you pocket, then set it to 'Melody' only, (plus if you happen to be somewhere you don't really want the phone to be blurting out a ringtone and have forgotten to put the phone on 'Silent', i.e. when you're on a bus -then the 'Vibrate THEN Melody' function is a saving grace)! I suppose not having the feature at all is a pain, but I guess we're yet to see a completely "perfect" phone from any manufacturer.
Can anyone tell me can this phone vibrate and ring at the same time on a mp3 rongtone? E720 have this problem and that why I am looking for another samsung phone, 'couse evrything else seems perfect!please help!
Motorola V series is no conteset -the interface sucks! I myself have the E730 and my best friend has just got the SE z800. We both stand by our own, but I think it comes down to whether or not you need a 3G phone or not. I would say the z800 is a little more technologically advanced, with a bigger screen, but is quite a wieldly phone. If you wanna stick to a good 2G fone, get the Samsung, if not go for SE.
Thank you. Now I know that it has loudspeaker.
But I still wanna know about the screen inches size.
why isnt there any site that shows this phone in the other colors available? Not even Samsungs site has this phone's specs on it...
I read at a site that it comes in black, red, silver and grey...
i wana see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
its gona b a hard fight with the upcoming sony ericsson w800...but of course the w800 is a winner in evryway...with the camera and expandable memory...
so it boils down to...flip...or no flip...
