Using Vodafone isn't a problem for me, but I travel abroad for several weeks nd need to use another SIM card!
Please please reply. I am sure quite a few people have got the Vodafone network pay and go model.
Thanks in advance!

Apart from this, i think this phone is very good. It's good looking and does everything it should. My only queory is the message incoming message as i said above
Oh dear, the Samsung M7500 is the third phone of their's I have road tested, each one has had fabulous looks, but each one has disappointed badly. This is another phone of their's where beauty is only skin deep.
The first impression you get with this phone is 'Wow' what a fabulous looking device. The phone looks stunning with it's brushed metallic beautifully finished design, and a light show to rival a Christmas tree, but it doesn't take long for the love affair to wear off, in my case only as far as trying to make a phone call!!!
First and foremost let's not forget the main purpose of this device is to make phone calls and, just like all the other Samsung's I have tried, that's where it falls at the first hurdle.
I am in an area where the signal is only adequate to say the least, the best phones can cope with no problem, but the worst ones break up upbadly and this, just like all the other Samsung's, does exactly that. A side by side test against Vodafone's highly specified but really cheap VF725 showed this up to good effect. The VF725 was foot perfect and the call quality was excellent, the Samsung was barely usable.
The area where I thought the Samsung would excel was Internet browsing, especially with an OLED screen to display pictures and web pages, but once again the VF725 was superior in everyway. Colours were far more natural, while pictures and lettering were smooth crisp and clear. In comparison the Samsung had over saturated colours that looked gaudy and bled, while lettering and graphics were more jagged and less well defined.
Trying to download an MP3 file from Go Music was too much for the Samsung, it just gave up, whereas the VF725 took it in it's stride and gave me a perfect download, impressive seeing you normally need a full HTML browser to access that site!
I didn't get round to testing the camera, I had seen enough already to know this was another Samsung atrocity.
In summary the only jusification I can see for buying the M7500 is to impress onlookers when the lights go down in you're local disco, otherwise save you're money and get a decent phone from Nokia, Sony Ericsson or even the now discontinued VF725, you can pick one of those up for a ridulous £29.95 while stocks last, and it's game, set and match when you compare it to Samsung's latest failure. So near, so far and VERY disappointing!
The parts use to make this phone is really good. however the software in it is the worst i have ever seen. you cant search your music you have to scroll through one by one. it has a stopwatch that cant be paused and several other software flaws that make it very user unfriendly. so unless you are using this phone for just calling and smsing this phone is a nightmare.

Straight line in headphones is a great future of this phone. I dropped it quite few times and i think its preety resiliant for such a delicate structured phone. Bad parts are that the back cover that holds the battery opens way to easy. And plus it took me ages to find how the keypad can be in silent mode without the silent profile on. But i give it an 8 - 10

I'd like to know, please, if when listening to fm radio the stock headphones (which I assu... moreFINAL COMMENT: I went out and bought this phone because it was on sale here in Greece for 195 euros. The excellent 3.5mm stereo headphones can be used directly at the 3.5mm port to listen to music. You can also plug in external speakers. If you want to use the earphones as a hands-free then you have to connect to the micro-USB port with the SUPPLIED adapter which incorporates the microphone. The same is true for the radio in case you have an incoming call while listening to the radio.
Ohter than that the phone is very well built and the screen is fabulous. You can install Java apps directly and the earpiece and external speaker are quite loud. The menu is improved but it is still Samsunglike which means that it is not as "intelligent" as the current SE or Nokia menus. The big surprise is the camera which takes VERY nice photos. The night-mode takes very bright photos (as long as the subject is steady) which makes up for the lack of a flash.
The package includes the micro-USB charger, the expensive 3.5mm headphones, the 3.5mm-to-microUSB adapter and the USB-to-microUSB data cable. They are all contained in the smart, CD-carrying-case-looking case.
Only plastic is used for the costruction but it is of excellent quality and the assebly, finish, and paintwork are way above what Nokia and SE offer.
All in all, it is a very distinctive phone and those who find the flashy Armani logos to be "too much", they can turn the illunination off.

THE RADIO REQUIRES A MICRO-USB SET OF EARPHONES! The micro-USB socket can be used for charging and for data exchange.
