Bought in July 2000 brand new in China. Took with me to Australia in 2005 and still working today. Incredible phone! Dropped in water once but survived. Dropped on ground many many many times but survived. Bettery time was awesome. Light-weighted. Nimbo size. Good key response. Good readability under sun. Very reliable.
One of the most loved 3 phones of mine. The other twos are Samsung SGH-A300 and Siemens C35i
Yes super phone, my mother 85 age, still using this phone every day. the battery still working as normal.
Super phone, I have it since 2003 - second hand - if is still working, the bateria is number one - sometimes i charge it once a week.
GSM arena are saying that this phone was announced in 2003 - this is incorrect. I have had this phone since 2000 - 9 years old and still going strong! I love that they gave 2 batteries in the box.
This is a very nice phone! I had it 4 years ago and I was very happy with it - then a taxi driver stole it from me!
I loved this phone!
If there is someone looking for a cheap phone with a nice design and performance - S500 is the one. No troubles for 3 years of usage, a great one!
I got this phone about 5 years ago and it only stopped working in the past few weeks. I have had no problems with it at all, although compared to phones these days its really simple (no camera/MP3/video). This phone really lasts forever. I've lost it and found it again at least 5 times and its even been in the wash once and still works. Another great thing is that it has two batteries so you can take it out while the other battery charges. Pretty cheap, and definitely worth buying!
I just bought my S500 today brand new for 82USD. I have a couple of questions, what can i do if i don't want no background picture at all? Just plain white? and wats the fastest way to access the names in the phonebook? thanks

Hi there! i'm also from australia and i got my phone (used) at ebay internet auction store. I bought for $150 and i think they sell new ones around $200- $300 if you are in a good timing. The thing is that you have to wait until someone starts to sell their S500 (or the ebay store). But yeah, buying on ebay is much much cheaper than paying at any other stores, cause mostly they don't discount their phones. Chears!
what the hell! its an old model(2003)and its still expensive in austalia! AU$430+ does anybody know where i can buy this phone in a cheaper price? pleaaaseeee....
i have a samsung sgh-s500 but my infrared port doesn't work.if somebody can help how to activate it...
Transferring ringtones and wallpapers is too easy and enjoyable.
I have a large collection of ringtones anyone needing can contact me.
Only disadvantage with this phone is small memory andjava games are not downloadable.
but i love my phone and feel very smart with it.
