Hi guys. Have this phone for a 2 months now the wifi version. love it. The only thing that bugs me is that it restarts during conversions at times. Anyone have any solution to this problem? As far as i know there are no firmware updates.
help. I need its screensaver. Does it have one, comparable to sony ericsson's with the date and time displayed when not in use?
bought it 1 week ago and extremely happy with this wonder by samsung
-games work very well
-good mp3 player
-NO NO NO restarts
-superb speed (112 mb ram and 330mhz cpu)
-superb image quality and videos of camera
this is the best phone by samsung and i hope more samsung symbian phones come in the future......
ive been using this phone for two weeks, and the restart problem really occurred. It usually happen when i run an application, and the backlight is turned off due to the limit which i set it for 10 second in the setting, then suddenly the phone will restart after that. so, ive countered this problem by setting the backlight for longer time (10 minutes). but the longer backlight is on, the faster the battery drain. so to turn off the backlight, i lock the keypad.
Just wanted to ask. My i550, at the first ring the sound will distorted but gone on the 2nd tone and so on. Also the screen appears to have a vertical thin reddish-line if the background is in black. Is this normal? Pls advice. Where can I download games for this fone? Big thanks in advance.
BrendanT: thank you so much for your reply :). for me i would like to be on the go and like u i like to haf it cheap n yet wif not too bad function. for now my work dun require me to reply email on e move yet. e main thing for me is to syncro my appointment from my outlook to my phone as i move and travel quite often. anyway e syncronzing function as mention by u it works and i believe it should work for all country? like i told u before, e sales girl told me it cant be but as you are a user i will believe in u rather then e sales girl. it will be stupid for sumsung not being able to syncro with outlook. =)
Jovan: Depends what you what to do with the phone. If you need a phone that great for email and sms on the move, then I'd go for the i780 or better yet wait for the blackberry 9000 bold which promises to be the HOTTEST phone on the market. If on the other hand you want a phone with features similar to the N95 with the high price tag, then the i550W is a good choice. Questions you should be asking include what operating system(MS or Symbian), what apps (Office, Comms, Games), what features (Camera Megapixels, Music Player, Browser). For me the first thing I look for is WLAN and HSDPA coz I want high speed access. I prefer Symbian coz there's more support and more apps and games. I don't use the camera a great deal but I do want at least 2 megapixels which gives 1600x1200 photos. I use the music player and internet browser all the time so these are really important. But overall I want to keep my costs down so I can keep buying new models on a regular basis coz I love playing with new gadgets. You can use the phone finder on this website to help narrow the models. One good tip if you dont know what frequencies are used in your country is to use the network coverage tool on this website. In Australia, Telstra uses 850Mhz and Vodafone uses 2100Mhz. Use the link below to find the right frequency:
thank you BrendanT. i ask the samsung sales girl and she told me it will not be able to an i was like -_-(wth) this phone will be useless and i dont believe her cause samsung will be committing suicide if they were to do this.
by the way i was comparing this with i780. i hope you dont mind to give your views and comments i550 with any other phone. thank you in advance :)
