another thing why i chose this phone is because it has expandable memory doesnt it? haha, teh Z320i, i was gonna get that but found it didnt have expandable memory, s500i can, they recently released a 1 gb transflash card, so that would be useful
yea to be honest i do think the phone is too powerful, i think gordon is right like its a sports car, its got the looks the functions, but drains fule to quiclkly, BUT, to be honest i dont mind, i wouldnt blame it because theres so much you can do with it. i still think its a top range phone and recomend people to still buy it. compare this to D600, obviously no doubt D600 is the winner, but it doesnt have i mode and so on, so there are negatives, overall i think its a excellent phone and value for money!!
recently got this phone, battery life is a let down i have to recharge every two to three days which isnt very good. Also the ringing volume although it marks top at 5 as most other samsung it doesnt sound so loud, ive missed a lot of calls due to this. Apart from that it is a pretty ok phone but i would definately still recomend the D500 as a better phone.
hi, i have recently lost my mobile and came across this phone its looks good to me and sounds quite good from what ive read on here , but i was wondeing if anyone has had any problems or anything? and if they think its good value for money, if you could email me or something please ? thanks jamie
i have got this phone and people say it uses up batttery to quick?, well that pretty much goes for all decent new phones, right? exploring it and seeing what you can do with it for ages, its like having a super sports car, bet you wouldnt say no to that? uses up fuel very quickly.
glad to see you are happy with your phone... do you think people with a 'common moto razr.' would be in a Samsung Sgh 500i site ? anyway enjoy it !
Anyone found the temple of doom ?
if not, anyone found the java unlock code ?
come on stop playing with your new pdf book and post the code
This is phone is absolutely fantastic!!!!! I love it its stylish, cool, recent and has brilliant features. The screen is so bright and colourful and the camera is fab! Its for rich ppl like me!!!
You suckers who dont have it and have a rubbish phone like the common moto razr...HAHAHA!
Hi Martin, just go to the option above the bell, the pic icon. if the number is on your sim 'To add this detail, copy to phone. continue?' say yes, then go down the list click on the same icon (the light blue pic 1) press 0 (or scroll up 2 times) and you're on the music icon. then add the music.
P.S. anyone found the java app unlock code yet ?
p.p.s. did everyone know that you can view pdf's, word docs, excel ect, they go into 'other files' click on them and they open in picsel file viewer, to turn the screen press 5, next page press 6 ect. press options 2 for zoom. lots of free books out there in pdf format, a good read on the train.
please someone find the java code
for Duds: I can put m4a or AAC files only to the Music folder. Than if want to choose ringtone for one contact through a bell icon I can`t choose a melody from the Music folder. Is there ane possible way how to do that? I mean set diferent m4a of AAC files as ringtones for diferent contacts?
re diff ringtone for contacts. select contacts choose your contact. in here should be a bell icon, select this and you choose your tone from there. you also can select photos of your contacts to appear when they ring from here.
I have had the s500i for a few weeks now and I love it but I have 2 problems, firstly when I put a micro sd card in the phone my battery drains within a few hours, without the card it lasts for about 5 days. Does anyone know why this is?? Also I can't download any java applications to my phone as I get an error message each time saying either the file is unsupported or too large. I had the E720 before this phone and never encountered any problems in this area. Does anyone know how to change the settings so I can download java applications?
I have converted mp3 to m4a and it works as a ringtone, BUT I can`t set it as ringtone for every each contact diferently. Only for all of them as one ringtone. Is there posibility to set a diferent m4a file for a diferent contact?
Another thing: how long your battery can stay alive? Mine is dead in 24 hours!!!! Even when I don`t call or send msgs:( Did I get rubbish one or all of you have a same problem? Thank you very much
hey guys(and gals),
Can you tell me what the camera is like on this phone? I know its 1.3 MP, is it anygood at taking shots in indoor light conditions, and is there a limit to how long a recorded video can be(aside from by memory constraints of course)?
re mp3s as ringtones. i was having the same problem. download itunes and convert the files there. then import it to your phone and it works!! its gets saved as a m4a file type.
If you are fed up with the same boring ringtones you can use .3gp and have a video play on your front screen (its deadly, i have edited a picture of a friend and have him jumping around the screen to the benny hill theme) if you have a 3gp converter set it to audio - acc 16000. video - 3gpp, qcif, have fun.
p.s. does anyone know how to upload java games properly ?
For people having problems connecting to pc via USB. Make sure you install cd first before plugging the USB into pc. Once software is installed, you can connect the phone to pc. Simple.
if people are still having problems, you are on your own. People still trying to set mp3 as ringtones, READ PREVIOUS THREADS BELOW.
Hi, new user to the samsung family, so the O2 rep recommended this phone becasue of the I-Mode features. I am so far happy, but could please FOR THE SAKE OF MY SANITY tell me how to set mp3 files as my ringtones, and how do I get my PC to recognise the phone. I have tried installing and uninstalling but the computer just won't have it.
I would be really really grateful if anyone could help me.
