Can you tell me if the Samsung S500i have got a very good quality for listen them?
I forgot to say that you'll have to define your m4a file by the music and video menu, not by the settings/ringtone/coming calls one, in the menu where you can reach all your files, mp3, other files, images, etc.. you get into the music/videos menu, and by getting into the options of the file you want, you will be able to define it as a ringtone and this without any limit, hope it'll help you.. the problem of the lense is a litlle bit disappointing, it makes me think that they made the mobile in a hurry; on SGH-E720, the two lenses worked.. it's a pity
I've just tried getting mp3 to work as a ringtone and just about managed it with the help of some previous posts. I found that you can use something like Nero Wave Editor to convert mp3 to mp4 but you have to rename it with an .aac extension - mp4 or m4a did not work for me. The other thing is that there seems to be a limit on the file size. Someone mentioned 300k. I found files around 100k are ok but say 600k is too big.
Re the flash - everyone talks about only one light working. It sounds like this is by design and the other one is just decorative!
I SIMPLY LOVE THIS PHONE, i was very disappointed when I knew that i couldn't put specific ringtones on it, but I managed to with the help of itunes, you have ton convert your MP3 in AAC or M4A and transfer it on the phone, you'll be able to put what ringonte you want and without any specific limit, that work with mine, I hope it'll help you, expect that, the phone is awesome, very good quality of videos, and large display, the only thing I can regret is the only one lense working.. but I can help without that too :p
I have just been upgraded with this phone all very good, but the battery compared to my previous phone (p510) is not very reliable. Is there a way this can be overcome? Also everytime I set the cover display wallpaper when I turn it back on it reverts back to the factory setting, should this be happening? Please get back to me, thanks.
I have an email a/c with yahoo as well as an o2 email a/c with o2 that I set up via o2 active on my old phone. Ive been told that as the s500i has i-mode, I cannot access any of my old email accounts and can only use one been created via i-mode. I have important emails I need to access and this is no use to me. Also, the booklet that came with the phone states that you cannot access any wap sites with this phone. Any help on these two issues would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hey im thinking of getting this phone on contract in january. I like to talk. will i struggle to get along with the battery life people have been saying about? what are people getting from their battery?
Like xjK7 said is it possible to play videos on the phone such as mpeg4, because every website says it has not got a video player just music player
Just a quick note, the light for the camera and the light for the 'torch' function when the phone is closed, are both the same light not different ones. So the phone flash light only works on one side...
i guess your wonderin about the flash on the phone only work on one side, this is because one is for using while you take pictures and the other is when you close the phone over and hold down the side button (volumn button)to use as a light !!handy or what!!gud luck!!p.s.how do u set mp3s as ringtones???
ok many of you are wonderin about the flash only working on one side.the both sides do work the right one if for the camera and the left is when the phone is closed over and you hold down the volume button to turn it on!!!!gud luck!!! ps.how do u set mp3s as ringtones ???
look, i work for phones4u. the d600 is clearly better than this and we give u £500 cashback and 3 MONTHS DOUBLE MINUTES AND MESSAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111 were also throwing in a free microwave. everybody get into a big canoe and roll on over to phones 4 u!
Bought the phone on Sunday and so far I'm very please with it. However, there are a couple of things which don't appear to work! The one which concerns me is that I can't get a calendar schedule entry to alarm. Has anyone got this feature to work?
Overall is this a good phone to get or is the battyery life really as bad as it sounds??? As i'm due to upgrade in a few days and am unsure of whether to get this!
On the headphones question - yes, I used the headphones from my D500 with this...but there are some supplied with the S500i that are black and more flexible than the d500 - 720 and 730 also have the proprietary connector if I am not mistaken...you should be good to go.
in response to andrew,on wheather you can use the samsung s550i in america. the answer is yes.i work for o2 and the phone is a tri band handset, which means you can use it in the usa.
