I jus wanna ask werd u get ur phone? are u in pi right now? got this phone but mine has a problem not even 4 month ff use my external screen broke not actually the glass but i think the film or filament carbon thing or watever u call that. but the phone still working juz that problem hope i can still try to fix that..
I am having problem connecting the phone to bluetooth car radio device! It connects.. then after 3 seconds it disconnects. I can connect any other phone models, use it to call and hear music, but this Samsung G400 disconnects from the car after 3 seconds.
Does anyone know a solution for that? thanks
oh ya one bad thing about this phone: when u have a long list of music, this phone is sooo slow to move from one end to the other unless u got everything sorted into many small folders and albums (which is a very long work) unlike nokia that moves in 1-2 seconds

(just my theory lol)
CS, 24 Jul 2009Is the audio quality from the music player really good? Like...how is it on higher notes...m... morewell the sound quality... speaker-wise, its very quiet. its not loud at all (which i kind of dislike) but with the earphones, its awesome (just like when u plug to computers) and the earphones that come with it are great too!
Is the audio quality from the music player really good?
Like...how is it on higher notes...mid tones and bass...
How is the audio quality when comparing the earphones with speaker?
How about the vibrancy?
Thanks guys! Cause i really look forward to this phone and hope the audio quality is as good as reviewed in gsm arena.
is there any way that i can increase the amount of SMS that i can save on this phone?..apparently the Sent msgs dont count towards the total msg space.
n also is there any way that i can get rid of the 'open phone' that flashes on my screen when I m getting a call?
I bought G400Soul and I hope it won't disapoint me.
The design is nice but the inner display is too small.I bought it from Italy cause in Moldova you don't find such cellphone. wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!

have mentioned. Pc studio 3 recognizes my g400, no problems there, but when I try to update the firmware, it says after step 1 of 4 that it doesn't recognize the phone model.
Anyone know how to fix this or get around this problem?
My G800 bit the dust (screen won't display), so I was in the market for a new phone. While I have several other phones I could use, I wanted one with a good-quality camera. Rather than spend really big bucks for an 8mp, I opted for another 5mp. I researched the g400, and one the things that attracted me is the clam-shell design. I very hard on phones, and a clamshell has always appeal to me.
So I ordered the phone, and it arrived on Wednesday of this week. In these few days, I have really enjoyed my new phone. Functionality is quite similiar to that of the G800 (duh, both Samsung phones), so the learning curve is very minimal.
Phone size has never been an issue w/me...N93, G800, and now the G400. Although it is approximately the same size (length and width) as the G800, it is definitely thinner, and therefore lighter. One of the reasons I am so hard on my phones is I don't wear a belt, and therefore do not use a case or clip as I am always afraid I will lose it. The only recourse, then, is to put the thing in my pocket. Sometimes, depending on the pocket, the phone falls out. Not so with the g400. I can even put it in my shirt pocket without much difficulty either.
Having the front screen is nice, particularly for reading text messages on the fly. I've taken a few pictures, and the camera seems to respond faster than the g800 did. I haven't uploaded any of the pictures yet to see the real quality, but thus far, my ONLY complaint is the tiny hold button that unlocks the front screen. Even with fingernails, I sometimes miss it.

In order to read texts while the phone is still closed via touchscreen, you must download the new firmware. To do this, do the following:
1. Got to this address:
2. Download and install the new version of PC Studio listed, but DON'T run it.
3. Install the Phone Software Updater provided at the link. This is an addon for PC Studio.
4. Open your G400 and go to Settings -> Phone settings -> PC Connections select "Samsung PC Studio"
5. Connect the phone to your computer via USB cable.
6. Open PC Studio and select Phone Software Update.
This process will take a while, depending on your internet connection. Took me 30 minutes. Make sure to NOT disconnect the phone during this time. Do not turn off your computer either. And don't disable your internet either. Any errors can permanently ruin your phone. Updating the firmware is a sensitive process so please do so at your own risk. I also did this with an english language phone so if you're using one that is in a foreign language, you may consult your region's website.
