I've had this phone for over a year now and I'm getting really ancious to replace it by a better phone.
The phone itself works great and I very seldom have problems using it. Also the phone book is great and easy to manuever.
Compared to some newer smartphones the F480 is quite small and thus they've excluded the qwerty keyboard in the software. However the numeric keyboard works great and it's actually very easy to write somewhat fast using the T9.
This phone was one of the first to implement Samsungs TouchWizz technology generating a small "buzz" when touching the screen which imitates the feeling of actually pushing a physical button. This or similar technologies are now standard in most smartphones.
As the phone grows older it tends to slow down in it's touch-screen reactions.
The camera is, like most other camera phones, rather poor of quality. For landscape photos and alike it's great, but for everything else it's pretty much useless and the anti-shake function even seems to make things worse instead of better. Don't use it for photographing people...
Also the bluetooth has for me been a dissapointment. I had two bluetooth headsets that I used for my earlier phone (also a Samsung) but with this new one the headsets loses connection pretty much right after having connected. I haven't used my headsets at all since I bought this phone. I wrote to Samsung in the hope of them producing a firmware update in which they'd turn up the volumen of the bluetooth antenna. This never came! However connection to my PC using bluetooth works fine, although it's not possible to disconnect unless you turn off bluetooth.
Browsing the internet on this phone os surprisingly good, especially if you install the Opera 5 mobile browser. The standard browser does not have a zoom in/out functionality. Be aware that the phone does not support Java-script or Ajax - and surtainly not Flash.

Sarah,u can turn delivery reports off..just go to messages,settings,text messages,sending options,and there u can turn the request delivery report off. Awsum phone btw,had mine 4 2years now,and no problems so far,dropped it twice off an 4storey biulding and it still survives
I got this phone about 13 months ago on a carrier plan with internet access included. Its a good phone, no frills, the only setback was when I had to send it away for an software upgrade. Recommend it
Does anyone know how to switch the delivery report off.
I'm been charged each time I receive a delivery report.
No matter what you do, do NOT buy this phone.
There is tons of errors and lacks.
Never has a phone had this bad a batteri charge, while still not even being able to run the annoying and ugly system without lagging :/
yummygummytummy- sam, 18 Jul 2010hi. what does it mean for a phone to be lagging and what does it mean for a phone to be hangin... moreLaging means the menu and the whole interface starts reacting slow and hanging means dropping calls (interupting during call).
