I have just got this phone, its great, so much better than the armani and easy to use! Just have a few questions, does anyone know if you can change the skin from blue or download any, and can you view messages in the vivid mode as thats always somethin i have liked from samsung !Cheers
i just have a question. is the menu blue like shown on the pictures or also in color like the menu on the 480. I find it a bit stupid like that. anyways, I got this phone anyways, but if I don't like i will send it back and get me another one.
if you're juz gonna compare it with iPhone or LG viewty in a bad way. just STOP commenting innit?! whats da poiint!!
Does anyone know what the price of this phone is?????? please tell me and is this phones music player loud and is it delicate
I like samsung phone cos the wording are big but when comes to calculator,I'm disappointed cos it does not have percentage option.
Just got back from a hands on demo of the F490 at my local Vodafone store. (Yes really, they got them in today.) As a power user, this phone, while lovely to look at and hold, vindicates two things: a) To date - only Apple have got the touch screen concept right with the iPhone. Each operation on the F490, in particular trying to type a text messages, is a pain. Try it! b) On the other hand, selecting almost any function on my SE K800i is only a few flicks of the joystick away. Why didn't Samsung put the improved touch screen GUI of the F480 (that's 480!) on the F700 so we can take advantage of it's fantastic QWERTY keyboard? Anyway, Vodafone UK provide excellent support (my K800i had broken down - they replaced it on the spot) and I was considering the F490 as part of my upgrade, but it's just too fiddly to achieve basic tasks. But don't get me wrong, if you just want it for social, it is very well made (better quality construction that Viewty), fast and looks 'da bomb'. :-)
dont take any notice of the status section this phone is not released yet this website is wrong! just so you dont go hunting for you it!
I am considering purchasing this phone, but am unsure of the UI that comes with it, I've read it comes with the croix UI, and I have also read that it comes with the new Touchwiz UI? can anyone confirm which UI this phone comes with?
Hey, i am interested in buying/upgrading and want a touch-phone; I currently have a Nokia N80 and i am very pleased. I want something different and unique. All Nokia OS'S are the same, thus i am interested in the Samsung F490 but is the F490 a upgrade on the F700 or is the F700 the better phone? Unfortunately i am unable to get an iPhone, so i have to settle for "2nd best".
Vodafone are launching this handset on friday for contract customers for upgrades
great phone!!!gud job,,i hope more phones to come!!!and i will buy this phone i promise!!!
don't buy from Phonesource-usa.com
they are ripoff
i order a phone and price went down
and i call them back to refund the money
the actual price was 513 but it went down to 503 and they won't refund 10 dollars
don't buy it from here!!!!
i think the phone is a good idea just needed wifi so it can be a more capable multimedia phone as this is the market i think its aimed at. And all you people going on about why not symbian etc... ever used symbian its pathetic, the iphone has good operating but samsungs operating systems have usually been simple but first class.
My brother has this phone, and personally i much prefer it to the LG viewty, its much more stylish and the qwerty keyboard is a bonus. The camera is good. Overall its a nice phone. well done samsung.
