I'm a dealer and I agree, i've seen too many of these phones in. For a company that sells mainly nokia its so worrying that we send so many more samsungs away for servicing. im truly dissappointed in samsung, they usually produce better phones. the design of this phone was amazing, it looks great its easy to hold and use, but it just doesn't work! such a shame. i hope they do better with the u900 because it is a hot phone too.
this phone is rubbish, ive had it for 4 months and the touch screen buttons dont work, the neither does the button in the middle of the wheel, o and the wheel doesnt work either :) the screen has peeled badly, the worst phone ive ever had...
alex, 20 Jul 2008I am planning to buy this phone coz i really love the style but was wondering if i can use yah... moreAlex, Really bad idea. This phone is a dud!! Unless you have infinite time to waste & even more patience, don't bother.Its really not worth the frustration.
Sent 3mnth old U700 for repairs, overheating, peeling , etc. Fone came back with no hsdpa.They replaced it. After 6 weeks, speaker failure.Now they wanna replace it again.I refused as this is obviously a problematic model. The best(?) they can replace it with is a D900!!! Sitting with a 2 year contract & a dud handset.They couldn't even offer a better phone though I offered to pay for an upgrade.
U700/D900 or nothing. Pity after the great E900. SAMSUNG SUCKS...
l bought this 4ne 4months ago but nw the volume is gone and l cant hear someone who will be calling me,will u knw the problem coz l still luv my 4ne l dont wanna loose it .pliz reply
bleh, 18 Jul 2008wait.. what kind of protection r u talking about?we call it g-mask here in the philippines. it is a clear plastic wrapping the whole phone.
It's a triband phone, so can it work with 3G sim card of AT&T? I've tried it already, but the signal is bad !
I am planning to buy this phone coz i really love the style but was wondering if i can use yahoo messenger and browse the internet into this phone? do i have to purchase software for the messenger? looking forward for any response.. thanks
ermadz, if do you get that software please share it with us, the sensitive touch is driving me crazy.
got this phone.. im loving it so far!!!
but i just went this morning to a samsung service center to ask re: software to adjust the sensitivity level of the touch keys bec i got mine without it. but sad they refered me to the main office... hope ill get what i came for next week.
Anonymous, 22 Jun 2008has anyone found out how to fix the problem with not being able to call/receive calls? i'd get... morei just got this phone couple days ago and realized that this phone doesn't work here in the US. ive tried to make calls and send text messages, but it wont go through. the signal bar always go's up and down all the time. every once in awhile, it will say i have limited service or it will saying searching. is there any way of solving this problem?
anyone on planning to buy this phone stopp!!! i have this phone and the ok button is starting to be very faulty please dont buy this phone its a useless junk dont buy you will regret it by 99.9% so dont even think of buying this phone
Every few weeks I get so fed up of these phones I have to post. I work for Optus, never, NEVER have I seen so many of the same model phone come back. I send at least two a day to our service centre. Alllways such a wide range of problems too.
If you are thinking of purchasing this phone, DO NOT, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. I've had customers flinging the phones on the floor in frustration at having to send it away so many times.
I have this phone for more than 7 months now and so far so good. The camera's resolution and flash is the best! MP3 sound is perfect,video calls are working as expected, internet and modem are fast enough for me to search what I need online. Also has voice and video recording.
For those who want to buy this phone but is worried about the looks, I suggest you have it coated by clear plastic to protect the glossy look. The touch screen will be affected by the plastic but in a good way since it wont be as sensitive.
I also thought it looked great and have found that's all it is good at. Had it repaired twice, the entire front panel and new battery, only had it for six months. It's very difficult to understand and the buttons are way too sensitive and the phone is slow to respond. Also can only use it on 2G even though it has the capacity to be used on 3G but it apparently doesn't like 3G so no video calls Please stay well clear of this phone bring back the Samsung D600 or the Samsung P510 they were real champs. Thankyou
1) The paint peels off every 3 months - but if you on contract - u can take it back to have the screen fixed (manufacturing fault)
2) Internet is very fast to use
3) how expensive is it to connect to internet?
Was thinking of buying this phone because of its facility to block calls and sms from particular numbers. Can anyone confirm if it actually works?
i think this phone is really really good it has everything u want in a phone the camera is like no other its crystal clear no other camera phone can beat it its top notch camera brings images to life whether its 5 mp or 8mp its still cant beat em'.
but the paint chipping just wrecked it but the only thing we want to make sure is that it still works like new so recommend u buy it!!! two thumbs up!!! go for it not the silver one the black one
