I love this phone all you people who says its a crap phone you dont know how to work it.my only problem is it doesnt have radio other than that I LOVE IT.CHEERS
First, my friend had this phone and I thought it was amazing. I played around with it and loved the design and the idea of the phone. I fell in love with it.
When I bought it for myself, the first month was great. But after a while, the touch screen started to freeze, the front main-button would stop working sometimes, the camera isn't so good, and it's just a very slow phone.
During a call, you can't touch the screen unless you press the middle button, so I'll try doing it, and it doesn't work. The phone has its moments of freezing and it actually drives me nuts! I've only had the phone for three months now and I'm looking into buy a new phone.
Out of ten, I'd give this phone a 4.5

Anonymous, 19 Oct 2008Can you use mp3 songs as ringtones? i.e does the phone have mp3 ringtones?i have the phone - it can play mp3s and they can be used as ringtones
Can you use mp3 songs as ringtones? i.e does the phone have mp3 ringtones?
Some online stores say this phone has MP3 ringtone cabapilities and some stores say it does not. Can someone who has the phone tell me if you can use the mp3 tunes for the ringtone?
I took my phone for a software upgrade at MTN Service Center and they quoted me a week to two weeks (at least it is free). But they cannot garentee that Java will work. I will keep you posted on whether or not a software upgrade from a MTN Service Center is the solution to you problem!
I purchased the Samsung F700v last week and i have not as yet had any problems with the phone what so ever, and am enjoying the touch screen, cant seem to put this phone down, Will kepp everyone updated as it seems that MTN users are having big problems, i am how ever Vodacom. Just try to remember that Samsung does give a 12month Guarantee on this phone and 6months on the battery. So if you are having any problems take it back to the store where you bought it and they have to sort the problems out free of charge. I almost guarantee that all the phones that are coming out in this new style are all having some sort of problem with software, touch screen and so on, they are NEW after all. Just like when the slide phones came out there were similar problems, just try keep this in mind when purchasing any of the new style phones from samsung, HTC, Sony Ericsson and Even Nokia and ETC.
Peace out Peoples
Dark Angel, 10 Oct 2008SAMSUNG F700... This mobile is the worst mobile i have ever purchesed in my life. It hasnt b... morewell its not the phone's fault since you bought it from some guy you should have bought it from the company first.
This mobile is the worst mobile i have ever purchesed in my life.
It hasnt been with me a wk and already i cant use it since the touch and screen is not working. :/ And the person i bought it from says to reset it like that would make any diffarance ( tnkx to my technical friends ) I absolutely DO NOT RECOMEND in anyone buying this mobile. Also after reading about it apperantly screen can actually stop working by having it in ur pants Back pocket of course due to moist :/
This phone is a piece of sh1t... I'm very disappointed in it. I'm also with MTN and java doesn't work with it. I've sent it in for a firmware upgrade and apparently samsung keeps your phone for 4 - 6 weeks!!! I really regret buying this phone, so hopefully this firmware upgrade works! I miss my Sony Ericsson K800 :-( Would change back to it any day! Never buying a samsung phone again. Sony Ericsson is definitely by far the best!
rachel, 27 Sep 2008check out the mxit forum from www.mxit.co.za my mxit works on mine tho. but i am on vodacom...the reason why yours work is because you have the vodafone firmware, i need to get my firmware upgraded to support java, but i don't know if a MTN service center can do this for me
