I just got this phone for my fiancee and I have to tell you in my opinion it is simply the best phone you can get for under $300 including S&H. I got the phone from cellswholesale.com. I chose the white for her and it is phenomenal, I have yet to see someone who did not like it. They were amazed at the features such as the 3.2MP camera, the interactive desktop theme that changes, and the business card recognition feature is really popular and amazing. I was worried about the touchkey but I tell you its not even a bother to me or my fiancee. She loves it and it took her 2 days to get use to using it with the touchkeys. BUY IT!!! Cellswholesale.com for $299 w/ FREE SHIPPING for 7-10 business days! I chose the 2-3business days option for a small charge and the phone was here within 2 days, I bought it on Monday night and it was here WED morning. They provide tracking as well!!
to the comment above about about the bluetooth needing a code..there is no set code as long as you type in the same numbers as the person you are sending too it doesnt matter...i find the easiest thing is to type 1 and if the person you are sending things to does the same what ever you are sending will go through :)
hope that answered you question :)
@ Everyone with the bluetooth issue:
I just don't believe how lazy & ignorant some of the owners are: what do you think, this is wikipedia? You just ask, and wait for the answer, no matter how enormously stupid question is? Is it so effort taking to browse some forums, manufacturer web sites, or else? Are you all physically disabled?
For the love of God, there is no default BT code! If you intend to swap files between two headsets, it is necessary to pair devices by entering two identical codes, which are only limited with your imagination, no matter if they have 4, 6, or 36578 characters!
Please, next time think at least twice before you post an totally inappropriate question, there are people who could find that as an insult for the intelligence.
Any new phone should be charged for 8 hours unless otherwise stated. If the battery life is crap, then exchange the handset... the Samsung battery life is pants though, I am so distraught after using a Sony Ericsson for my main phone, I have to charge the Samsung three times as often.
The code for bluetooth will always be 0000 on any phone/headset/device unless otherwise stated. I am guessing the person who doesn't know this is a bluetooth virgin.
just bought the u600, nice phone. problem being, how long do u charge the phone for at the start.i charged mine for several hours but is this enough as i,ve not stopped charging it since.played mp3 for several songs made some calls then power went down.
i would like to know.. which is better, this one or the samsung u700... i mean, what's the difference? aside from the design and 3G? thanks. :)
Very nice phone, why, why, o why did they put a touch screen on this phone, takes a bit to get hold of and i till find myself hitting them and that gets to me about this hand set, but on the bright side the phone is the dog nuts, so buy one now!!
hi, i wud really thnkful if n e one tell me tht , can i locked my imp photos, msgs or a folder?,so tht nobody see tht widout my permission [or i can put password], if 'yes' thn pl tell me 'how'????????
Now I have RIZR and U600, and just before I owned W800i.
u600 has really good design, but that's all.
It has the worst user interface I have ever used.
For example, when I use bluetooth headset, I have to operate my phone(u600) whenever I turn on the headset. However, RIZR doesn't. Once you do pairing, you can use everything(call and mp3)with only bluetooth headset operation. You don't need to get the phone out from your bag.
This is real wireless advantage!!
In addition, U600 camera is really really slower than w800i, so taking picture is painful with tiny & unresponsive shutter button, and focusing is not reliable. quality is a lot behind.
Mp3 player is also bit slower than other phones, and speaker is not as loud as others although the volume might be enough for most people anyway.
Thus, if you really design lover, you can get it. it has huge lcd, slim line, beautiful appearance with many color.
However, you are looking for a good performer, than you do better go others.
BLUETOOTH: The password to access it is normally 0000 hope it works!
Hi, can somabody tell me about the video operation, what rezolution... Thank's
I recently purchased this phone and I m in love with it. I did get the D900 when it first came out and was in love with that too, then after losing it i purchased the sony erricson w800i ... it does do things that some phones dont do and it seems more durable BUT the samsung does it for me ... i love my U600 ... its so sexy. I wouldnt give it for any other phone till a new samsung comes out that i fancy hee hee x x x
Can anyone tell me how to repace my present memory card with 1 GB microSD (TransFlash) memory card.
ALSO will I loose my all images, contact, numbers, music etc. already stored in it while replacing the same??Thanks
to install software on vista i ran compatibility wizard (look in help and support) and ran the setup files in the 'bin' folder as XP sp2 once installed i ran pc studio update and it seems to work ok with either cable or bluetooth. although getting my bluetooth adaptor to work in the first place was a nightmare.
Hello, just a wee Q, how do you get rid of the o2 sign on the main screen? cheers
Can anyone tell me how I can use my bluetooth on U600? Its asking for a password and I dont have one, nor does the other phone Im sending stuff from. What do I do?
Thanks Wayne, but that's a bit of a shame not to be able to have a theme on, isn't it? Is there any way to have a theme on without a logo? It seems pretty pointless having such a nice background spoiled by the operator. Or is there somehwere else to get themes from?
