i really want to purchase this phone as well, but i am a little turned off by all the posts concerning the peeling problem...i did a search on the internet, and nobody seems to have posted any pictures of their peeling u700 phone...does anyone know where we could see this type of pictures?
Finally I had found a phone that seemed to have it all, looks and qualities. I was all set to buy the Samsung U700 but after reading all this about the peeling problem, I am so depressed. I have a motorola v3x which also has a peeling problem, apart from which it is a good phone.
dont buy dis fone because its really peeling... i saw one u700 and its ugly
i'm from australia and have the u700 on an optus plan. apparently you if you have peeling problems with your samsung you can take it back to optus and have them repair it....for a fee
i took it back to the shop but the girl said that my insurance fee doesn't cover the peeling paint because it was classed as 'physical' damage. then she showed me the store phone which they say that they've had for 6 months and it didn't have a peeling problem. i tried to argue that that's because they dont take it everywhere with them and didn't use it nearly as much as an everyday person but she just wouldn't listen to me.
i've also been a long time fan of samsung like some of the people in this thread. the last phone i had was the D600 which was fantastic. but now, samsung refusing to acknowledge this issue, it's turned me away. i'm looking forward to my next phone which is either the Nokia N95 8GB or N96.
Iv had this phone for like 3months....yet it looks like 2years!! but bsides the peeling its not that bad!! oh and my phone only records for a few seconds(video)how do i extend,settings or wateva,coz iv searched everywer???("~)
the truth is this:
i got the phone november 2007, started feeling after 2 months, now looks like crap. i read all the comments about how everyone says that the phone peels before i bought it. i thought they were over reacting, but they were right. PHONE DOES PEEL, DON'T BUT IT!!
Is it true? That the peeling off problem has been solved by Samsung? Please confirm this especially to those who bought their phone here in the Philippines. Thanks.
please anyone tell me what about the video recording , is it very bad or normal????
never known such a crappy peace of plastic it peels wears very easy not nice leave this phone alone don't buy it stick with samsungs between 500 and the d800 series this series is crap the samsung u600 was better then this mistake of a sorry crappy phone the gimmiks on the phone with the stupid touch bottons are uselesss
I bought this fone 2 dys ago & even though i luv it i am having trouble using my ringtones for the message tone as the memory card doesnt seem to be storing them. I would really appreciate some help. Thanx
does anyone know where i can change the messaging settings so all the msgs i received go onto the phone/mem card before the simcard??
ive looked everywhere on the phone!!!
its very frustrating when i can only have 180 msgs on my phone bcoz my simcard always fills up and im having to move them constantly
i have had this phone for 6 months and absolutly love it. i have had none of the problems with peeling or software functions and love the format and style of it. some of the functions are buried pretty deep in the software and saving your music/photos to the memory card is a pain but over all i rate it a 7/10. my only advise would be to get a plasic shell because the large screen is not protected from knocks.
Rely To Liz...
The Carrier Logo is coming from the SIM card
so you cant remove it from your phones.
Hi i juz bought tis phone, and i am really having trouble with removing the battery cover. I have only managed to remove it once when i put my sim card and the battery inside and now i cant remove it again. Can some1 giv some sort of advice 4 tis ? Thx in advance
This phone is definetly not nice .The peeling problem !!! Is pathetic !!! Do not get it
i there themes for u700 and i also want to change the msg alert tone is that possible.
I wanted to ask, can you change the Theme on the U700?, how can i watch videos, fotos and others in fullscreen? is it at all possible?
thanx in advanced for your answers!
Does anyone know how i can set a ringtone that i have downloaded to the phone as an alarm tone? Right now i can only use the tones that come with the phone as Alarm ring tone. thanks
hi paul...well to answer your question, the reason why you see 2 different key pads in the pictures online is because before the u700 was relased samsung changed the design at the last minute...so all the models sold now have the separated key pad (for each number)...the key pad with the 3 separated lines was just the prototype version.
