Does anyone know what the carousel software is for this phone?
What is carousel software exactly?
Free software ? just hang around the internet and you will find tons. However really usable software you will need to pay for I guess
if you want to make a real business tool of this unit, install Dataviz documents to go on it.Viewing and edit most common office documents and zip included. really nice
i just got this phone yesterday and so far i think its fantastic. my only issue is, how do i get it to sync with outlook? i have windows vista and the versions available dont seem to work. where can i get a compatible version?
dunno why so many people complain, maybe they even never owned the device. I have it 3 weeks now and didn´t faced any problem of what people mention on this site. It is just a good smartphone doing what it need to do. BTW Samsung told me by mail they will free update to Windows 6 during coming month
Got this a couple of weeks ago. So far so good! The battery life isn't really that bad.. used half an hour of surfing & chatting on msn, about an hour on music and moderate calls and sms; the battery was still at half charge! Not too bad.. only needs a recharge every couple of days for me. HSDPA is a huge difference over GPRS, I have no problems with my 3G sim card or the reception. For those with problems, might just be your unit - go get it checked to make sure everything's in place! Overall its been what I was looking for.. didn't need the touchscreen!
anyone who knows how to do a soft reset of the device without switching of the power button ? thx
is this the same phone as the blackjack that cingular in the U.S. has?
not sure 2
in Europe I used http://corporate.mobistar.be/en/info/evolutions.php in a small test area.
in hongkong I used Smartone in a test area on Hongkong airport
Just to make the info in previous reaction more complete
To not sure,
Dear forum member. I will not look as a guy knowing all about but I owned many really many pda. on this moment I still have 5. Samsung i600 is a real good phone and pda. Samsung do not pay me to tell this, just believe me, no problems at all. I tried 3.5 G in a test area in Belgium and Hongkong and it seems OK, however the few minutes use can not guarantee this fully.Noise about bad working in 2 and 3 G networks are realy not shared by me. I used the phone in Europe ( Belgium, Holland, france, Germany and Italy)
in Asia ( China, Singapore , HongKong ) and did not had 1 dropped call, not 1 crash. just let you know this. Enjoy and do not forget, best is to try yourself and see. :-)
I'm a little skeptical about all these people that claim they are using it with 3.5G HSDPA. Tell me what country you are in and what network you are connected to? I don't believe that you are really on 3.5G as there aren't actually that many networks in the world that support it yet. It's coming but not yet there for everyone. The people that are having a good experience with this phone, particularly the phone calls are probably NOT using 3G. If you use this as a 2G phone, it might actually work. But I agree with ALL the others, if you put in a 3G SIM card, this Samsung fails. It can't find a network when you are roaming, it has a lot of failed calls, and sometimes doesn't even Sync properly. From someone that has used this for nearly 2 months now, I can tell you that my experience hasn't been good. It is NOT a good PDA phone, and it is not a good mobile phone. The Samsung tries to do both and fails at both. It should have tried to just do one and do it well. BTW, you can see the dust accumulate underneath the screen once you turn it off.
Its cool to have this with 3.5G HSDPA speed was so fast. The nightmare of hanging in touch screen PDA phones are all gone. Surprisingly, the phone function is more stable than other windows mobile phones. However, the keyboard need time to get used to. Also its difficult to find applications and games for this windows mobile 5.0 smartphone edition. Also I'm finding the Bluetooth GPS software for this but can't get hold yet.
i was going to say i have the e61i and the i600. the nokia has a bigger screen and much easier to read emails and other downloads. the samsung is smaller and lighter to carry. depends on what you need it for. i tend to carry the samsung more. the nokia is a lot more sophisticated yet easy and has a lot more features. the samsung is just funner to have. enjoy the samsung.
About this phone:
I am using it for few weeks around the world. As well for phone calls, e-mail by GPRS/EDGE/3G and wireless, surfing the net.
I owned a few pda before (O2 Atom, Dopod 810)
Pda may have some more options, this phone is much easier to use and for sure the quality of the sound by making calls is much better as by pda.was never a Samsung lover but what I can see from this mobile, maybe I will become a Samsung lover. For business people using their mobile for calls and mail, this is what you should try.
Maybe 1 more remark,Samsung made an own interface based on mobile 5 for this phone what makes the phone much more easy to use as standard windows 5
