Just purchased the U700 after a long wait and must say am very disappointed! I agree with many of the reviewers when they say the touch pad is wayyyy too sensitive! I have closed many menus accidentally and have had to continually go back into them! Very annoying! The shiny screen gets finger prints on it v. easily and like most people have mentioned the volume is low. My old samsung was heaps better. Looks hot but not practical!
the samsung u700 is a very lovrly phone. the problem is i dont know how to put the keypad tone on silent. can you please help me
I have the Z400, should I change it to this one? Will that be a wise choice
When I insert 3 sim card, not all functions work, such as, mms, internet and bluetooth. Does anyone know how to set up the phone so that it's compatible with the 3 network? (AUS)
just to enquire, is this phone able to set mp3 as sms tone? if yes, how long is the duration? thanks
Well i just got the phone yesterday and didn't have to read the manual. Already i know everything about it! The problem is while text messaging and on the web i don't know what to press to get the underscore. Can anyone help me ? :S
Hey DPG, just wondering since you got the phone from OPTUS Aus, does the phone comes with Samsung firmware or does it come with a pre-install OPTUS firmware? just like what it comes with Vodafone contract..
Hi i have just ordered this phone on Vodafone which has vodafone firmware right?
i heard if you flash it with the samsung firmware it has an FM radio. is that true?
Please respond quickly! :)
Note about software. If ur OS version is up and until Win XP you are fine. But those using Vista like i am and have tried installing the sumsung software, u will be pissed off that the software on the CD will not install and shows a message that the OS is not supported.
Anyway... S O L U T I O N:
Run the installation in XP SP2 Compatability Mode. That should do the trick!
Thats my 2cents for now

about the slider, i disagree. Its more of preference. i like this slide because its an actual 'slide' and it feels nice when it slides. as for the front panel coming off, i got no idea what ur on about mate. So far this fone has not been fragile. ive even dropped it once (already!) -_-".
Held a working model in the shops. This phone is a looker at a glance. The longer you look at it, the duller it becomes. Very slim but slim phones are not for everyone, they feel too fragile to hold. And the sliding mechanism on this phone felt like it would loosen and the front panel would become flimsy after 6 months, just like every other Samsung slider.
The buttons on this phone is great though. Large call buttons make this phone real convenient and the numbers are actually quite nice to press for a slim phone.
is the camera on button meant to be a bit loose/wobbly or is that just my phone?
There are no games pre-installed on the U700 (AU Optus version anyway). Im not sure if u can transfer games.. but i guess u could. Sorry but i didnt buy the fone for the option of playing games else my previous Symbian OS on Nokia would have been fine. I bought it cos i like the look of the fone (thats pretty much the reason why i bought the fone -_-" quite superficial, i know).
are there games on the optus version of the u700?
And is it posible to transfer games via usb to the phone
Im no pro in this area but since the U700 is a 3G mobile. It operates on HSPDA and not GPRS (Hence why there is no option for GPRS). Also Im glad to see you have recieved the fone from Ebay-HK. Did you have any probs with shipping or the fone itself?
