b_dette, 24 Nov 2008For some reason i cant receive picture messages..or send picture messages. Does anyone knows how to?speak to your carrier and they will send through the settings to your phone :)
I have to say that I really was disappointed with the F480 Tocco. It looks fairly good but as a phone it was poor. There's no excuse for producing a handset that has terrible voice quality. Every person you speak to when using it sounds like they're talking on a speakerphone. My first Motorola back in the early '90s sounded better than this!
Then there's the camera. It is only good for photos in bright daylight. If you want to use it in even a brightly lit room you just can't get a decent picture with it - even after adjusting all the settings. I had expected much better given the positive review on this site and others. They obviously just test them in nice sunny conditions. That's not much of a test in my opinion.
The display is pretty average too. Every photo you take looks quite good after you've focused and then looks pretty low-res after you've clicked. This makes it very difficult to ascertain if you've taken a decent photo. Very disappointing.
Texting is okay-ish. It's easy enough to type on but the various options e.g. Abc, ABC, T9 etc. are annoyingly located. It's frustrating after a while.
The widgets are a nice idea but even with this it's a surprisingly dull phone. I got bored with it after a fairly short while. The feature list is average and it's really put me off Samsung now. I toyed with swapping it for a U900 Soul, as I love the look and feel of it but reports of low voice volume and a fear that the camera might be as poor as the Tocco's made me opt for a Sony Ericsson C902 instead. Samsung missed an opportunity with the F480 Tocco. It could've been good.
i keep missing my calls, it doesnt ring for long, is there anyway of extending the ringing tone, this is the only part of the phone doing my head in.....

M French, 23 Nov 2008Can you put this phone on silent and whats the texting like ???yes, press dial and hold the # key til silent comes up, another way is go to the widget panel and pull the speaker icon out, select silent.
texting takes some getting used to but its gggreeat.
ok..bought this fone few weeks ago and i love it!! :D
- huge screen - sooo nice
- camera - awesome! (for those who r complainin..learn how to autofocus ur camera!)
- sound- is great!!!
- i was very careful wen i bought this fone cos i thought that it was fragile and easily scratched..but guess what? i dropped it a couple of times and still no scratch!! o.O
- no pen, cnt use the touchscreen with gloves on..must be skin..if u know what i mean ;) (im n a cold country so my hands r like freezing whenever i use my phone..)
-for some ppl... touchscreen is something hard to use haha...
my advise: be gentle with the phone and it will easily follow where u want to go

hi there. i'm from philippines. i bought this phone because i'm a girls' generation fan. i wan to ask if the f480 can support 16gb microsdhc? and what about 8gb, does it lag or something? uhmm... and also, because i'm from philippines, i would like to know what is the firmware i should use to flash on my phone. please the working firmware ones that'll work here in philippines. and another thing, is there a firmware that fixes the f480's ability to watch videos, mp4 videos in 30fps? coz' i'm very jealous of my bigbro's n95, it can play 30fps videos whilst my f480 plays well only @ 15fps. please recommend me. here is my email: firstname.lastname@example.org very thanks... let's help each other
