I e-mailed Telstra asking about specifications and differences between F480 Tocco and F480T which was made for that carrier. This is the reply I got: 'Please be informed that the Samsung F480T has a GSM band of 900/1800 and 3G band of 2100/850. As for the Samsung F480 has the following band: 2G Network GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 and 3G Network HSDPA 2100.' So by this statement F480T misses GSM 900 MHz, which is replaced by HSDPA 850 MHz.
This is a terrible phone- an iPhone wannabe with a badly thought out user interface. Nothing is simple, even getting to the create message screen takes about 4 steps. In my opinion this phone was brought out hastily to try and compete with the iPhone, but although the design is no doubt attractive, the way the phone works is not user-friendly.
loving the phone so much,want to get it today for my man..he does not seem to be interested.

Hi all, i got this phone a week ago and granted its only early days but so far so good, i love all its features, the camera for me works fine i took a photo of my boyfriend sleeping while it was pitch black and it turned out great i even set it as my wallpaper! The touch screen use when typing a message is taking a bit to get used to but this is my first touch screen phone! And my only disappoinment is the loud speaker as it sounds like the person on the other end is either in the bathroom or has swallowed kermit the frog! But it is loud and they can still be heard, so all is well! I hope this is still the outlook i have in 12 months time as im stuck with it now 24 months on my plan! Eeeekkkk! :-)
I want to buy this cell but I would love to know up to how many messages can be saved
Also, does it have a good-loud volume when you listen music?
thanks so much
I have to say, I'm not very pleased with this phone. I've had it for a month now, and I'm regretting my decision of buying it. At first, the novelty of a flash new phone was enough to keep me excited. Granted, it works well, fast and is very user-friendly. But the longer I had it, the more I noticed it's flaws.
It's very uncustomizable. You can change you're wallpaper and contact photos, and that's about it. The screensaers that appear with the hold button are nice at first, but you tire of them very quickly, and they cannot be changed or removed. You also can't remove system files like default photos or ringtones.
The menu is plain, but that's not so much an issue. You cannot change the font - anything about it, even the size. You can make SMS font bigger and smaller while reading the SMS, but when you move onto the next inbox message, the default is back again - very annoying.
There is no virtual QWERTY keyboard, or any way to install one, in fact there are very few applications that can be installed, and no optional widgets either.
Overall the phone does what a phone should do when it comes to texting and calling. The camera and sound quality is very good, I will admit, and the battery life is definitely acknowledgable - a few days running on two bars was impressive. But for such an expensive phone, I'd say it's definitely not worth it.
Does this phone have Active Sync, is it compatible with Microsoft on the computer with all of my contacts and appointments?

Ryan, 04 May 2009I see everyone talking about screen savers on my phone but mine does not have a screen saver..... morejust use the shor cut menu on the left side of the screen and scroll to get wall pappers. Then bring it to the main screen and select which ever picture you want you can customise it with your own pics...its great.!!!
