After having the Samsung u700 for a month, what I can say is that:
- It has great features
- It has a very nice design
But, unfortunately I am planning to sell it, as I am very disappointed about:
- The slide; mine has the wobbling and rattling problem which has been sent to repair 2wice & Samsung refuse to replace my handset
- The lagging; the whole phone software is way to slow... menus, typing in phone no.s etc.
- The speaker; way not loud enough for playing mp3 ringtones... my old little samsung e370 was louder than this! Disappointing considering that the u700 does have better sound quality because of the ICEpower Amp by Bang & Olufsen!
- The camera; good quality, but annoying that you have to rotate the pictures
- Charging & Handsfree; only uses one hole... I cannot use my handsfree headset and charge my phone at the same time!
- Durability: Taking away the time the phone was in repair, I have only had this phone in my use for ~2 weeks, and the silver finish is wearing off at the edges. This is despite the fact I have immaculately kept it in my mobile phone sock... the silver just seems to wear off really easily!!
Generally Disappointed in Samsung! They used to be my favourite mobile brand... now I'm not sure what I will change to now =(
I have the U700 and I was just wondering how long peoples battery lasts? Mine doesn't even last two days with very little use... is this normal?
Secondly, I want to use my music tracks as my ringtones, but I can't seem to figure out how, can someone help me!! Also I seem to only be abe to fit about 6 songs on, even though the memory says there is a lot of room left. Does anyone else have this problem?
Any help or suggestons would be appreciated! Thanks.
You guys should get the phone first, before recommending and loving it. Jeees.

Free on a $49 optus cap, includes free bluetooth headset
the phone in Aus is around $629.95 straight out from Optus World stores. A bit expensive aye? *sighs* i've almost got enough to buy this sexy phone ! wooooooo =]
to sophie. suggest you try using your bluetooth...if your com dun have a bluetooth device maybe you shld get one.
you can opt for the vodafone version .... that comes with a 900 mAh battery. and you can "debrand" the phone later by updating it's firmware ... the only bad thing is that it has written vodafone under the screen ... but that's fine by me ... i'm a voda fan anyway ;) ... and about the battery ... it now has 3 days and i only lost 1 line (out of three) ... and i used the phone quite a bit (maybe more than that) these days ...about a hour of calls,music,camera...and it still goes
You just install all features from the original cd that cames with the phone,input your data cable in one of your USB devices,and then link it to the phone.It should appear an additional hard drive(memory card).Then it is all yours
Singapore - You definitely can answer and end a call while the phone is in 'locked' mode without sliding up the keypad.
When a call comes in, simply press once on the round silver button within the scroller, and you will see the "Accept" option on the bottom left side of the screen and the "Reject" option on the bottom right side. From there, just do the usual with your touch screen buttons to accept or reject an incoming call.
To end a call, simply press the silver button once and you will see either a "Cancel" or "Exit" option on the bottom right side of the screen.
In addition, you can also cancel the "Slide Down = Hang Up" function so that you can slide up the phone to search and dial a contact's number, but slide it down while having the conversation. Go to Settings in the main menu, then Phone Settings, then Slide Settings, and set "Slide Down" to equal "Continue operation".
does anyone know if you can answer a call with out opening it (sliding it)??? whilst its locked???
