I bought this phone around a week ago, loving it. I downloaded Opera Mobile Beta 8.65, seems good!!
Only question is, how do I load Opera Mini on this phone? Everytime I try to download, it states that this file cannot be viewed on this device.... any suggestions?

I am interested in purchasing the i600. I read in the forum that Samsung is offering a free update/upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.0 Is it the full version of smart phone version? By the way a word of advice for the Samsung people: If this product had touchscreen feature it would have been extra awesome. Anybody know any plan by Samsung to provide touchscreen feature in the near future? If so I will wait till it happens. Thanks and please contact me at my email address.
Thx for the clarification!
Got the brochure and also not similar to the one I held. Let them sell it to me as an i600 and I'll drag their sorry @rses to court for misrepresentation.
you saw the blackjack version, no wireless,no 3G and logical no front camera.This version is sold in USA and called i607. looks same but isn´t
Had a look at this phone today, but it doesn't look similar. The one I saw had no camera on the front and at the back there was a camera with what looks like 'speaker/microphone' perforation holes on either side of the camera. Does not look like the pictures on here.
Samsung care to explain this anomaly?
I have a question... Do you have to add another line to this phone like the BlackJack if you get it??????
Really nobody knows how to change the web home page on this lovely mobile ?
to Pak Abu, yes you are doing wright...First connect with usb cable to your pc then go tointernet sharing on the device, you will get an immediate connection. Go on your pc to internet options, connections and click the case...dial whenever a network connection is not present...it will work perfectly...i600 is one of the best smartphones i ever had and i can tell you that i buy and try all the latest models, from Nokia e-series to HTC...
Need some of yr experience with i600 when using it as a modem.
What is the actual way to set it up as a wireless modem?
Previously i was using a O2 Mini II and quiet happy connecting to the net (using it as a modem).
But now with this i600 i don't know how to set it up as a wireless modem on how i did it for O2 previously. Last time i used to create a dialup connection and as at when i wanted to connect, i'll just dial up.
But i really can't figure out how to do this with i600. I notice that once i connect the phone to my laptop using the USB cable, it will detect a network automatically (ofcoz after i've installed the CD pack in the first place before plugging it to my laptop). And then, i will use the Internet Sharing application to connect and it will terminate the first network and create another one. And now i'm able to browse to the net.
Did Microsoft removed the dial-up networking (DUN) functionality from Windows Mobile 5.0 but replaced it with Internet (Connection) Sharing instead?
In the past with using the DUN functionality, a connection was established from the laptop. This means, the connection was created on the laptop by dialing *99# and configuring the APN on the laptop as well. Then, the connection was initiated from the laptop and the Windows Mobile smartphone was just a dumb modem which received all the commands from the laptop.
Is this the correct way in using i600 as a modem? Tried to google around but can't get an answer.
Truly appreciate for any comments.
on some webpage, people mention about a battery with extended power to use in the samsung blackJack. as Blackjack is almost same mobile... any idea if we can use it in the i600 as well and if it really helps to extend the time between two rechargings ?
Hello friends, how can I change my homepage in this mobile ? can´t find it and want google as homepage instead of the default page
if you want to create and edit documents go to http://www.dataviz.com and try their program: documents to go for windows mobile.
Does anyone know what the carousel software actually does? also why did Orange remove it?
hello "not sure",surprised I am as I installed on the i600 the dataviz smartphone edition 3 and it works as a dream. surprised I am as I travel the world around , as you do, no dropped calls at all. Or I was very lucky, or you had bad luck with the samsung i600. Be honest, after installing documents to go on it, almost no difference anymore with real pda.anyhow I am very happy with it, you a little less. let it be as that, makes the life attractive. btw, a very nice review u gave here.
I'm sure everyone's experience will differ, but mine is based on real world experience. And from that, it didn't work for me. If you move around in a vehicle (happened in Singapore, Hong Kong, and London) the calls do drop. As I said, I attribute this to the fact that the switching between signals/base stations is poor. I had another phone as well with me (which is a Nokia N95) with a different 3G SIM card and that worked fine (as well as my Blackberry 8707 which also worked fine). When I went to Bangkok for work, the i600 refused to pick up a signal. Luckily, I know how to manually find a network and then I had to keep telling the phone not to keep switching.
BTW, I installed DataViz and it doesn't work on the Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone. I must have the WM5 Dataviz FULL version and not the Smartphone version (or maybe an older version). I know it does have this function because the Dopod WM5 smartphones' can edit documents but I couldn't install it and don't know why Samsung didn't have it built-in.
My final thoughts on this is that perhaps I have been looking at this phone incorrectly. I tried to compare it to either PDA phones (like my Dopod 838 Pro and XDA Zinc). PDA phones are usually better PDAs than they are phones as they run full Windows Mobile and have the full functionality as such. In contrast, mobile phones are mobile phones, and don't have the capabilities of PDAs and as such we don't generally compare the two. To me, the Samsung is in its own class - an in-between product, which many manufacturers dub a "smartphone". It's not a PDA phone nor is it just a phone. That's why it runs WM5 Smartphone, and not WM5. So it's not fair to compare it to either of those. I should compare it to other "smartphones" with WM Smartphone like the O2 XPhone Graphite/IIm, Dopod C720w, and the i-mate SPL. Although I like the Dopod a bit more, the i600 does pack in a lot for something so small which is pretty amazing. I just wish I wasn't fooled by the Samsung marketing which led me to think this was a full PDA phone which it isn't. And I'm still unhappy about the poor phone reception!
