Truly one of the greatest selling points of this phone, It looks awesome. It's got heaps of good features, and carrying spare batteries is no biggie, especially not for me.

Has anyone else had problems with this phone restarting a lot. I think it might be due to overheating? It doesnt seemto happen unless I have it in my pocket where its obviously a bit warmer?

hi, i was just wondering if anyone knows where i can get the software from for the samsung s500i? i brought the phone off ebay and it didnt come with any of the cds so im stuck with the boring ringtones.
You say you can get 3/4 days out of the battery by setting brightness to lower levels but do you turn it off at night or leave it on all the time?
Also can anyone tell me if its possible to charge this phone through the usb cable!?
All in all I'm pretty happy with it. Besides battery life its more or less quality!
I got given this nifty lil phone for my 22nd but had probs with connecting it via the given software and usb cable to my laptop and had to resort to using a dongle to bluetooth aac files to use as my ringtone...yes people...mp3s don't work but convert them to aac format using itunes and you can do it...Enjoy!

have just bought this phone, thought it looked great. impressed with pics & video but find it very confusing to use as yet!!!
can't seem to get into the phone memory to add contact no's, it just keeps telling me my sims full & won't let me go any further. also does anyone know what the highest transflash card is that this phone will take?
please someone help as i'm thinking of going back to my motorola v500-one touch & very easy to work.
i really am trying to give this phone a chance.
hi for everyone who cant get mp3's as ring tones all you have to do is covert mp3 to aac using itunes, then copy the mp3 once converted and paste it into a folder on your hard drive, then send it to your phone via bluetooth its really easy once you know how to do it.
I think the phone is great the photos from the camera are the best quality I have ever had from a mobile phone. Just 2 things are annoying 1.the headphones are the worst, keep popping back out of the ears as they are to heavy!
2. you can only use the tones provided on the phone for message tones and they all sound really bad!!
hi i need help!!! i cant get a mp3 as a ring tone on my samsung s500i, does anyone know hoe to do it?
People moaning about the battery life:
Have you tried turning the display brightness down? I have mine on the lowest setting and its bright enough - battery lasts a good 3-4 days which is more than enough.
Also, those of you who cant get PC to detect it. I'm guessing u didnt follow instruction properly cause I did and it works fine - install disk before pluggin in!
As for setting mp3 as ringtone, read previous posts u lazy bastards!
