DK, 16 May 2008everyone seem to like the sight of my Samsung U700. But it is a promise, do not buy this phone... moreanyone know how to switch off the keypad tones except change to silent modes?urgent pls...thanks..email me firstname.lastname@example.org
pucca4ever, 28 May 2008i'm having the same problem as well. i can't receive calls or make them? have you found a solu... moreYes, i had the phone for 6 months and had the same problem. The phone would not make outgoing nor accept incoming calls. I sent the phone overseas for repair to Samsung UK as I was told by Samsung USA. Then Samusung UK told me to send it to Kuehne and Nagle, which is their electronics manufacturer and I had to mail the phone to them. After 6-7 weeks of constant hassling back and forth, they tell they the unit is a non-UK unit and they can't repair it. Naturally, you can understand the level of frustration and irritation. I just got fed up for being run thru loops and said give me phone back. I love the phone, but after this experience, I wouldn't advise anyone to get the phone since many have had this similar problem. Now I don't know what to do. If anyone has any solutions, PLEASE share... email@example.com . It would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
Its a terrrible piece of handset. I've had for 7 months and it has been to repairs twice. The skin is peeling off...just dont buy this phone and waste your money
Its a crap phone straight out! Dials on its own, the browser just quits for no apparent reason the only good thing about it is the slim design and HSPDA other than that dont waste your money on this phone. Will never go for a samsung EVER!

Anonymous, 28 May 2008why is that the outer cover is peeling? It happens with all of them. Poor quality paint.
I work for Optus. Never have I seen so many of the same model phone come in, and with such a wide range of problems. Please, for your own sake, do not purchase this phone. It will cause you endless frustration.
