i love this phone its so cute and small every one says it looks lik a calculator even so the phone is fantastic if i was to recommend a phone to any one i would recommend this.
"It's a lifestyle"! Ha ha ha! Erm, no. That's what the marketing people want you to think. It's actually...just a phone. That looks like a calculator. With poor volume.
hey rebalza can u email me on how i can modify the vibration and volume of my p300's ringtone? tnx my email add is firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't you guys get it ? Yes it looks like a calculator, but does all phones needs to look the same boring way ?? Its such a cool phone, and even more than that - its a lifestyle. Take Nokia 8800 - its the same, a gadget, which people can't live without ;) Buy the phone if you like its cool look, its a real business phone.
ok, I will tell you my opinion. there are many people who really love this phone because of the looks (I am amongst them), but there are lot of them who don't and I understand that because this is something completely diffrent. when it comes to features of the phone, I can tell you that I don't like it being so low on ring tone, and vibration is not so good, and this is THE MAIN thing about a phone, that's the bigest complain to Samsung !!! But you can make it a little bit better, so I fix vibration and melody to go together, and make mmf file, and while makeing the file I put volume to the top and I make it vibrate all the time, so now I hardly miss any calls. On the other hand, you can't choose your own melody for sms (that's also one important thing), so there is no way to fix it (no way that I know). But because of that I like option that your sms melody will ring every 2 mins if you didn't read the message. Here in Serbia T9 text is in no use, so for us it isn't problem, we don't have to choose it all over again, we had similar problem on previous phone from samsung when we have to choose all the time abc text. When you write sms and someone calls you, sms will not desapear !!! You don't have to go trough hundred of option to create a message, you can make shortcut and by pressing one button go write away on writting, so it is not a problem at all. For me pc suite is not good program, but also you can manage files, put it on the phone and of the phone so it isn't problem. There is problem to put java on the phone, but it is problem of all Samsung phones. The camera is not rubbish at all. It is not 2 or 3 MP, but for camera of 1.3 MP it is great camera and has great display to see pics !! Also clips made by this phone is best possible. Great thing about this phone is metal shell !!! I really love that kind of phones. Also it is thin, but not so light which is great for me.
I have had this phone for a few months now and came onto this website to see if anyone else was having the same problems as me. To summarise:
1. The volume of the ring tone is so low that I quite often miss calls, even when it is on the highest setting.
2. This wouldn't be so bad if the vibrate function was effective...but it's not. The vibrate is so slight that I can't feel it when it is in my bag and sometimes not even when it's in my pocket.
This means that I spend most of my time ringing people back. Cheap for my friends, expensive for me! Never in my life have I used so many of my free minutes!
3. The text messaging is completely counter-intuitive and does not allow you to default to T9. In addition, if anyone rings when you are texting then the message disappears into thin air. Nice.
4. You have to go through about one hundred options just to send a text message. It's a difficult process when it could be so easy.
4. The PC Suite software is super user-unfriendly and very counter-intuitive. Call me a quitter, but I gave up after a while.
5. The camera is rubbish, but I don't think the camera is the reason why you would buy this phone so maybe that's not a problem.
In conclusion, I wouldn't buy this phone again. I have to admit, however: it does look rather nice and makes for good pub talk. I would be interested in hearing other people's opinions!
My first Samsung buy. Its great but I'd just lost the battery cover at the back of the phone and i'm told that Samsung does not make replacement covers for any of its phones!!!! Arghhh... Its this true? I feel like i've been conned by Samsung. Stuck with pretty brand new phone sans cover....it sucks man...
The best feature about this phone is the BOBBY CARROTT game. It is the best game ever to be on a phone ever!!! I have hours of fun with Bobby and now he is my new found hero.
we actually might get the CDMA version of this phone. its called the sch-v870 and note that it has got all that this cutie is missing -
external memory slot
and yes, it retains its footprint !!
man its a wonderpiece and coz its so out-of-the-box, most ppl are unable to digest it as a gadget-to-own !!!!!
i will wait it out for the 870 !! :)
Guys, I bought this phone 2 months back. It's fine, slim, smart but I discovered what I percieve as a very big problem; I can't update a contact directly. i.e, I can't dial a number then update a contact with this number through the menu. The menu allows you to only save the number as a new contact.
So, You have to memorize the number, go to the contact in the phone book and type the number in any suitable field. Isn't this terrible?
I really am pleased with this phone. Very small, out of the leather case it fits in a suit pocket with no bulges. The only critisism is that the signal strength is not so good.
Just PERFECT !!!. And for everybody read well the cover isn't just cover It's an aditional battery pack!!! YESSS!!
what type of person u r??? if u want to be different from others and bcome outstanding, buy this phone. and ppl can't say stupid bcoz its really has very good built and features.
I am using it now. NO PROBLEM
the cover for this phone isn't too great and it's annoying when you're taking/using the phone because of the flap being there. but the only good thing really is how thin the phone is.
This phone is veryb good it's very stel but it want memory card.look for this
I LOVE this calculator, it is the best phone i have ever had EVER!! Even though i get no signal with it, i don't care coz i am in love with it. I would marry it if i could!! It is grrrrrrrreat!!
Seriously go out an but this phone. Forget ur doubts!! It is the greatest phone alive, the best phone ever built ever.
