i have a few questions to ask.. in addition to all the features and benefits i may get from this phone based on the previous comments and specs posted on this site. have any of you guys experienced having problems with battery life with frequent use of the phone? how long does the battery last for heavy use of the phone? and i am very much into display and mobile themes.. does this phone have themes downloadable like any other pocket PC's and mobiles?
your answers will be of great help.. i have been saving just to get myself one of these and if battery life and themes doesn't pose any disappointment to the features that is already on the phone. i guess, the time and money used will be worth it.
Kai's flashlight cost US$3.00 and you can get it from http://www.pocketkai.net/asp/en/index-en.html
Follow the link "Tools" then "Flashlight" on the left side of the page.
Hi guys.......plz tell me is i600 speakers sound luder than i300 or Nokia 5700...plz tell me.....???tnx
hey guys can anyone tell me how to upgrade the OS to WM5 to WM6?
and please tell me where can i download software that can edit word and excel files
Juz got the i600. Very disappointed.
No chinese language.
No chinese text SMS input.
No voice recorder for tele-conversation.
No FM radio.
Battery cover damn difficult 2 open.
this "Multi FlashLight" application works like charm with me:
and it's totally free.
one more thing.. when i bought this phone, i got a full version of 'Documents To Go' within the package. I can totally edit Word and Excel documents.
Appreciate any wise inputs on this.. I am currently having a basic cell and a PDA and have plans to intergrate this to 1 hardware. I use the "notes" fuction and calendaring extensively on my pda. I have heard reviews that we are not able to edit Word document on the cell? Are we able to edit with Windows Mobile 6.0 installed? Can we create Word document and edit them on the Samsung i600?
Thanks and really appreciate any advice.
Hi Green user,
Where did u get the software 'Kai's Flash Lite'?
Is it freeware or how much does it cost?
And, do u know is there any memory limit on the voice recording function?
I intend 2 get the i600 soon.
I have figured out a lot about this phone. Comments in this forums and http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsMobile are unquantifiable help. Find below my amateur assessment of the phone;
[The VERY GOOD]
LOOK: Stylish, attractive yet simple.
FEEL: Lightweight, sleek, velvet-like.
LAYOUT: good button spread, decentralized navigation.
FUNCTIONS: Robust phonebook, high speed wifi, good organizer, Nice Camera.
BATTERY: Much above average.
OTHERS: call clarity, concealed connecting ports, GOOD security level, fast synchronization. good video quality and audio quality via earphone, child-lock battery cover (I guess that is what it is).
[The not good]
Ringer volume is moderate. Vibrate and ring helps.
Using Activesync 4.5 for the phone is problematic. It may be activesync 4.5 issue.
Uninstall and install the activesync4.5 every time you want to use it works. Also ensure firewall isn’t running.
The screen could have been bigger. Why write SAMSUNG in an area that could have been used for screen.
Slow boot, it makes me panic. Be patient it will come on.
Accessing task manager every time to stop running programs is not fun. A simple prompt like I see in office “Do you want to save or minimize” would have been best.
Samsung was not generous enough to put an external memory card.
Internet sharing is impossible with wifi. Samsung assumed all computers have wifi.
The VoiceAssist has never one day gotten my request correctly.
Unique USB port makes it hard to share accessory.
No flashlight. A software Kai's Flash Light solve that.
Feature packed. To be unique and still stay in touch with official and unofficial activities, get this.
shouldn't it be activated automatically when you make video calls??
I never tried that.. i'm just guessing..
but i think you can't enable it as a photo camera. Also, not sure of that.. if anyone knows anything, please let both of us know ;-)
