touch screen buttons on a phone arent bad at all... they work fine on my samsung e840. the buttons lock when you're on a call anyways, so your cheek cant accidentally hit a button.
Touch-screen buttons on a phone? That's just stupid. "oops! Sorry about accidentally hanging up on you but the hang-up button touched my cheek..." Lame. Save it for the iPhone and people with too much money.
omg....there are six touch buttons even in new model version : 2 visible and four are backlight when you slide down :
"@Damo - then you have the old version of the u700. GSMArena just updated the pic to reflect this."
No, you are wrong. Any photo with backlight will show you that there are 4 buttons which you cannot see currently.
u700, what a great handset. the battery life is fantastic and the overall build quality is outstanding. most probably the best handset on the market to date.

Why do people keep saying it has 2 touch buttons?? There are 6 touch buttons on the front slider!!
This 100% fact as I have the phone.
It has only 2 touch butons on the front slider. However I intend to re-wire the thing and turn them into normal buttons. Worse omes to worse i'll just get the D900i
Can you get anywhere other than vodafone?, ie: without the VF software on it. VF software always seems slow and rubbish. Any user opinions on the VF software for the U700?
The U700 definately has "touch screen" buttons, so far I've accidentally terminated a download by casting a shadow over the screen and yet when I try to hang up a call it will not respond.
the handset is very nice indeed.It looks like a phone from the future.gr8t work samsumg keep up the good work
Can anyone tell me how to use mp3 files as alarm tones? They are there in my files under "sounds and ringtones" but when I try to install them as alarm sounds they don't show up in the file, only the ones that were in there when I bought it and all sounding tinny and not something I want to wake up to. It may sound silly but this is of major importance to me in a handset, I sleep between 2 addresses and have to set my alarms a week ahead due to my shifts so an alarm clock is out of the question unless I can programme it and carry it around with me.
Can someone please tell me how to put mp3 music onto this phone. I have copied the software that comes with the disk, but it keeps telling me that this software is not supported. I have the current version of 3.1.
I think the U700 Vodafone software looks terrible - it looks like Legoland - they've corrupted a decent phone
The u700 is an absolute fashion accessory! And it has great features too! If u wanna be original, get this phone! Coz most people are going for the nokia n95!.....
