I work in a phone shop and think that this phone is fantastic however before i buy one i want to know that if putting a pay as you go simcard in would you still be able to take advantage of the internet facilities, i know you cant with blackberrys.
had this phone for 2 days now and am loving it but twice now the screen has frozen on me... anybody else got this happening? the only way to fix it is to turn the phone off and put it back on again!

Hi does anyone know if we can download more widgets for this phone?? think it'd be abit stupid 2 include widgets that cant be used to activate the browser etc!
Just purchase one from eBay, AUD$699 and free shipping.Got in 3 day after paid.
The phone is actual look much better than the photo,size is smaller than F490.
The touch screen response is very good.
I love this phone so much!!!!!!
$609 plus shipp on ebay. still too much. no more spending more than $300 on cellphones. i love this samsung but $200 iphone makes me think a few more times.
nik, 18 Jun 2008yer my camera does this also so not just mine then lol i thought cos when tap it round camera section might been sometihn wrong but few pl said its cos the metal cover has lil movement to protect it so thats coool
thanks for the reply
love my new phone but want to check something when placing it on hard surface does anyone elses camera area make like a suttle vibrating noise. is this ok or is something loose that shouldnt be am thinking that it may be suppose to be to protect camera but as it a new fantastic phone just wana know if anyone elses has this
$700 + shipping on ebay rite now.... i would wait til its go down to about $450, because that is how much is should be worth. no complain with this phone. but most of the features are too iphone-like. and iphone cut to $200 in july. which mean everyone will have a touchscreen. i dont know its even worth paying that much anymore
I recieved mine today and have been playing all day....I must say that it's very responsive and have made a few calls and haven't dropped any calls...(on vodafone)... options are good and it's very clear.. menu system is good although it'll take time to get used to as am used to a nokia... but overall a good phone am pleased....
Hi, i just got the phone in Bulgaria. It is not officially in stores here so i guess it comes from another country. The problem is that as many of you i have the drop calls. I changed it to GSM 900/1800 and it still drops! I think it's time Samsung to release an official software update that should be available to download free and fix this!
Another thing is again as some of you have noticed there are pictures showing on the hold screen that are very nice but are nowhere to be found? Any luck with this?
Alison, 16 Jun 2008Hi, mine keeps dropping out on phone calls too, mine's on orange, but its on contract. can the... moreyes if u are contract which I am they will change it for another make or the same phone, like I have changed it twice now but cannot decide which one to replace it with. Still waiting for orange to get back to me through technical support to see if they have any answers.
From this forum, this phone APPEARS to be afflicted with a bug causing it to drop calls. I think GSM Arena needs to implement some way to authenticate flaws. After all, reports of just one or two issues could massively disrupt sales of an otherwise good product. (I use an N95 8G but got to play with an F480 and thought it quite sweet - excellent call quality.) Anyway, this is just an idea - perhaps GSM Arena should contact someone in authority at a phone reseller or the manufacterer themselves and obtain confirmation or otherwise of any reported flaws. (I owned three excellent Sony Ericsson K800i phones. Each failed, but other people I know had no problems, so it may well be a specific software build - same with the F480 perhaps?)
Well you know what would be nice a way to make it change the wallpaper itself say every morning or hour lol.
Also more widgets eg one for writing messages so you dont have to keep going to menu then messages then create takes to long
steve, 16 Jun 2008are the calls dropping associated with area? i'm in the midlands and have good reception.i guess the call dropping is associated with the area you live in, because i have this phone and have not had any phone calls dropped.
