My personal problems with phone are:
*MP3 player is of very poor standard (music quality is poor) and it is hard and very time consuming to scroll down the list of songs
* The touch scrolling feature isn’t very fluid and smooth
* If I’m on the net and also want to make a phone call, I must close the internet screen completely. My old MDA Vario 3 actually allowed me to minimise the internet screen so I could make a phone call and then return to the internet page I was viewing. The Samsung F480 won’t allow me
* I can’t copy and paste numbers from the internet i.e. i can’t copy and paste a number to be dialled.
PS. The internet is pretty fast however!
Not sure if it's just me, but the set which I got a couple of days back kept giving me drop calls. :(

Anonymous, 05 Jul 2008it's a copy of the lg pradaA copy of the Prada, yes and no. Let us state it is a more powerful Prada. The design looks almost the same, but I think there is nothing wrong on keeping something beautiful as the Prada design alive. Technical however, this phone is far above the Prada. Telling this ia a copy can be considered as correct as long we just look the design, inside the small black box there is nothing that smells as copied.
Can someone help me set up push email. I have set up my email accoun but whenever I click on 'Messages' then 'Email Inbox' then 'Options' and then 'download#', the message appears stating that my passoword or username is invalid.
However, I have tripple checked and yet the problem continues.

apparently the battery life lasts longer if you turn off the 3G..
change from automatic to GSM 900/1800

How d... moreThere has been a couple of people confused about the mp3 as ring/message tone so here's how you do it:
Go to, 'Settings', 'Phone Profiles', 'Edit', 'Voice Call Ringtone', then select the sounds folder, then pick whichever folder your mp3 are stored in and select the mp3 you want.
It's the same process for messages.
