Hi. I just have 1 question. I bought this phone the other day and when I get text messages the name of the sender is not coming up only the phone number is on the phone. Does anyone know if this can be changed or is it just the thing with this phone
Well today 16th august 2008 at 4:40pm , i purchased the set in kolkata(India).
its price is Rs.18,200.
I exchanged my previous set N72 for another Rs.3,800.rest i had to cut from my pocket.
Very frankly speaking,i loved my N72 but the symbian OS is really slow but N72's service was brilliant for the last 2 years.
My dad purcheased the N78...with the feature Pack2,no doubt its good but the keypad is really bad to type.
The samsung set was released yesterday in our locality and i took a proper care in analysing it before exchanging my faithfull N72,And to be honest i found the interface is really really fast,appropiated for day to day use and offcource the touch screen facility.Camera is also good,the red tint is gone,white balance is corrected.
No doubt Nokia is the highest seller globally but this set has the metal.Moreover to be very truthfull,we purchase the smartphone..but if we take a proper look we hardly use 80% of its features regularly.In that scenario,i say that this cell perfectly works wonder.Great design,2.8screen like N95,No OS hence fast,flash UI so better Overall graphics,The only think i missed is the GPS,MAPS,THEME,GEOTAGGING and 16Million color display in this set,Rest i found more or less everything was bundled with this set like the N72.
Cant really sat the batterly life because its charging right now(6:54Pm,kolkata)
After using N72 for 2 years,I also think S40 os is much stable that the High tec S60,'coz at times it really need some speedy dialings and contact to do the job.In that case the problem is solved right away.
My verdict is that,I am really pleased with the phone's look,interface and everything,
again for me > SONY Cybershot CAMERA and a 1 Gb IPOD is essential for my life.I cant deny that.Not even N95,N78,N82 can offer.
So like me if u have some hard earned money to invest on cell,so please check the F480 before u get the Nokia or Htc.U may have a different outlook but if a gadget is good u can show some praises.
This phone is rubbish, DO NOT buy it. Get a touch pro or a diamond instead. I cant believe this kind of junk exist on this world. OMG, please remove this junk. No Wifi, not even windows mobile using some crap software made by Samsung? Rubbish total JUNK!! JUNK!! JUNK!!! So what if it comes with a 5mp camera? If u want a decent camera, get a bloody digital cam, handphone camera can never make the grade. 5MP is the photo size, not the photo quality! Dont get suckered by that!!
Hi, I have used this phone for a couple of weeks now and its brilliant!
One question though, how can I get the photos off it onto my macbook??
I have tried countless times, I know a lot about both mac's ad phones, and tried with bluetooth and the cable, but to no avail...
Can ANYONE help me?
Thanks in advance!

how can you see which firmware is installed on the phone ?
A very slick and stylish device. I have never owned such a user-friendly and good-looking phone. This is not the iphone killer but it all comes down to what you want.
It has an amazing 5mp camera and the widgets are a very good idea.
I would recommend getting this phone and if not a bit on the exspenive side it is a very good buy
i own that phone and it's awsome
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2008HI, Where can I get the latest firmware? ThanksGo to a Samsung Service Centre and they'll do it for you.
anonymous, 13 Aug 2008cahelp me pls.. im thinking to buy tocco instead of iphone. can you help me to decide which on... moreI have both the 3G iphone on 02 and the Samsung Tocco on Orange. I personally much prefer the Samsung. Finish is better and it is easier to use. Battery lasts longer also. I don't get on with the iphone but maybe it's just personal choice.

This phone is no doubt a great little gadget. The faster internet speeds do pull along when you’re on a network with a good 3G signal (Vodafone). Mobile TV is something that we can all enjoy, and with networks now offering unlimited browsing it’s more accessible to us. I work in the industry and I would say right now this phone is one of the best. The touch screen is the best any make has ever pulled out. It uses heat sensitivity rather then pressure which I prefer. This is a negative for anyone with long nails or a stylus, but it’s so easy to use you don’t need a stylus. Texting is easier on this that on a normal phone, and I like the idea that you can drag and drop onto the main dashboard like a desktop. This is very user friendly and music quality on the device is great. So all in all 10/10. Oh, but I forgot about the camera, And Samsung would have been better off if I did. I have a SE C902 also and that has an incredible camera. This F480V has a poor camera. Fine it’s 5 megapixel camera, but were getting to carried away to remember what megapixels represent. I don’t know anyone who blows they pictures up to full on cinema size posters. So why not stick a good 3.2 megapixel camera on there? Battery life is good holding around 40 hours on heavy usage. All phones now have lithium batteries in them. Meaning you have to charge about every two days buy for about 30 minutes. Overall I’d say 8/10 camera is important to people and Samsung didn’t put a good one on here.
