I just got my phone yesterday and i havnt been able to figure out how to put it on vibrate ! anybody know?
Im love samsung, cause all their phones are so elegant. However my opinion has been swayed thanks to the new U700. The peeling is disgusting and makes the phone look so cheap. My phone has been in a cover since i bought it so whats the excuse. When i bought this phone i bought it based on its elegance. Samsung should have had the foresight to see this happeneing, why cut costs on something so elegant. A compltete chrome finish would have been ideal.
is it possible to upgrade my firmware also,but how?can u teach me...thanks in advance
Im a Smart user. Is it possible for you to send the settings to my e-mail? I would really appreciate it. Thanks! =D
Is there a Network that already have the GPRS/WAP Hanset Setting for U700 here in Philippines? Can I ask for the setting? Please send it to my e-mail.. Please!=D
@ Johnny Turtle
where did u get that firm ware that ur talking about thanks, i also need that...and one more thing i cant install any games in my phone the only thing i can install is from the wap site like smart and globe....can u help me, all the java games in the internet is useless it always says unsupported file type...i hope u dont encounter this...thanks in advance
so i was trying to find out why my blue center came off .. but instead I SEE ALL THeSE NEG comments about the u700...(i found out eventually why it came off) ive been using this phone for about a month or so now and LOVE IT LOVE IT ..its my third samsung phone.. and ive seen other samsung models from friends and family..
for the peeling issue ..
i have a clear case cause i like to toss my things in my purse and go .. i have one for my ipod as well.. so I THINK for those who are complaining so much .. u shouldve thought about it first ..before buying the phone!.. its slim and delicate looking .. obviously its not those type of phones u can just throw around.. like e900 and such those previous models by samsung
secondly for the "assigning tones" and such..
i think u guys need to upgrade your firmware (like how some people mentioned in previous comments/posts ) since i just got mine beginning of this year --my blue tooth naming section -- indicated its a samsung u708 ..that i have and not the u700..and i can assign a full mp3 song as msg/caller tones etc..
OR UNLESS.. Rogers here in canada blocks off that feature (recently) but i bought my phone unlocked from mobile604.com ..so maybe for those?.. some branding issue?..
as for that FM feature.. UHH DUH THATS WHY THEY CAME OUT WITH the u600 AS WELL.. i was actually tempted to get the u600 over u700 but i can live without that FM feature since i have my ipod .. and instead i like the u700 design concept over u600
the neg stuff i do have to say about this phone..
- no games loaded ..since it was shipped over and stuff i still havent loaded any games ..from the funclub cause im from vancouver..
BUT i called rogers and they told me i can easily set up my ROGERS internet service back on my phone (since my internet is also isnt set up for rogers even though its part of my plan) and buy games..
also the THEME setting is kinda blah unless anyone knows how to change that?.. black and ORANGE isnt my thing lol. feel free to email me ! :)!
Has anybody really TRIED to use an HCSD card with this? A 6 GB one for example. I'll get one if it works with HCSD cards (I know that it's not officially supported but there seem to be ppl using this phone with HCSD cards)
cover is peeling off after 4 months and i keep it in a phone sock. my camera doesn't work, always blurry and the sound is terrible, i was very dumb buying this phone, but it was soooo pretty
I'm planning to buy but then there were lots of negative comments..that it wears out esily and too sensitive...what?! is it worth the money or can u recommend other phones??tnx!
I would like to ask Jay (j.k.ell.at.hotmail.com) where in Gateway can I have my Samsung U700 gmasked. I just acquired it a week ago and I'm just worried about the "peeling" issue. But overall I think U700 is cool!!!
Thanks a lot.
i really wanted to have this phone.. i hope this is better than samsung E890 (touchscreen)..
as for my personal opinion, i love samsung more than nokia phones.. :)
I loved the samsung u700 silver until the coating started to peel around the sides of the screen and made it look cheap and ugly its a very common problem in the silver as i work in a phone shop and see several come back the phone is a fantastic phone but i would recomend the black charcoal colour as it dosnt have the coating that peels off
after using this phone for a while.
sexy phone (got the brown/black one)
not a common phone(unlike nokia's)
has a GOOD music player
cam is good (but images tend to oversaturate)
call quality is good
3g and hsdpa capable
as my friends say (becareful of the side paint in sides of the phone's screen)
touch senstive keys (too sensitive)
keypad hard to text when headset is plugged in.
battery life is so-so upto 2 days is max
no infrared (for older devide compatibility
overall it's a good phone with minor gripes.
definitely a good buy
im currently using samsung u700 but there is something i couldn't figure out which is every time i pressed on video call it will indicate "video call unavailable". why is that so?
the phone is good looking but its a disaster. its expensive and top of it all you have to buy the games. i thought samsng phones were user friendly but this one you have to technician to figure it out. i have the phone and i luv it but i will stick to my e250
I'm just considering to buy U700. I saw the real one at some exhibition just now, and its design so elegant and beautiful. The camera is damn good!
But i just read about peeling problem. Please tell me if it has any other problem
Btw i dont understand why you "so-not-into-samsung" person would buy this samsung phone, but then critizise "samsung"?
