Ciska, 19 Jan 2009Can you personalise a messagetone? yes, you can... go to the "profiles" menu and you'll be able to personalize the message tone
i was so excited about getting this phone until i read most of the comments...should i get the nokia N77 instead?i know they not on the same league but what should i do??..i had a U700 n it just stopped working,so now i'm worried about buying another samsung
1. Has this phone voice recorder and if yes - can it record during a call?
2. Is call register tabbed (All calls/Made/Received/Missed) and accesible with single push of "Call" button?
hi, i'm jay from philippines i'm just going to ask the resolution supported in video playing with this phone. can it support 320x240px? and at what FPS? another is i wanted to open my GPRS, INTERNET, and MMS settings. but unfortunately the site given to me is not updated because my phone is not on the list.. BTW(i'm globe user)thx a lot...
Great phone as I only use it for sms, but some major disadvantages which leave you thinking that Samsung is dishonest.
For example, total sms storage: 500. BUT, the inbox can only store a max of about ~200, and the same for the sent items. Why is Samsung using dedicated space for sms? They should use better programmers and software to store messages in its 1gig memory!
For example, my Nokia 3110 only has a few megs of internal memory, but curerntly has 2850 text messages stored! Amazing!
Also, after a few days, something happens where by it refuses to send messages. So you have to restart the phone at least once a week, or something.
The battery bar is horribly deceiving and not accurate.
To read a simple text file is amazingly horrible! It starts some rubbish "Access powered" software which can't read more than 3 pages - otherwise "Out of memory". And you can't compose text files like on a Nokia. You can't edit any files, it's read-only and you have to keep zooming-in to read even a tiny bit of text. Unbelievable.
On the bright side though, the screen and supported colours is absolutely beautiful, as is the camera.
Excellent quality photo's if you change resolution down to 1024.
I look-after my phone like it's a baby, never dropped it and only store it in a cushioned pocket, so alhamdulillah (praise is Only due to God), no scratches as of yet.
I testify there is no God except the 1 true God, and Mohammed is the last warner / prophet to mankind, as was Jesus, Moses, Mary, Adam & Eve, etc, before him.
Saying that God has a son is unimaginably worse than me swearing against your mother.
Every soul shall taste death. The life of this world is only a deceiving enjoyment for a fixed time.
And in the end we will all return to God and paid according to our best and worst deeds.

SGH i7110, SGH B2700, SE K770, SE C902. But even before so, please make a list of your desired features. Then set priority. Because packing all our desired features in a single handset would generate a "SuperPhone" atypically contradicting business strategy -- which is noway acceptable to any manufacturer. You know how it works, yes? :)
Fraser, 12 Jan 2009Can anyone comment on the sound Quality through the speaker as well as the headset..I have compared its sound with moto v8 if i give v8 8.5 points u800 will get 7.
I AM THINKING on getting a phone for a 24 month contract, so please I want users that can be trusted
my choices are NOKIA N77, NOKIA 6600 SLIDE, SAMSUNG U800 and SONY ERICSSON G700
I had the samsung U700 and it cost me a lot to have it repaired..it was a slide phone so I,m a bit concerned about getting a slider again..my ribbon flex broke after the manufactures warranty so it pretty lame..
I'm not getting positive feedback for the NOKIA N77 but I like the TV!
SAMSUNG U800 is nice however im afraid to get another SAMSUNG FONE AGAIN!! BUT I was thinking this is OK since its an open faced phone..so no prob with the ribbon of flex there
with the SONY ERICSSON I was thrilled it has touch screen and the fact that it has image stabilizer..but most of the opinions are saying its not that good..like it hangs...
I just wanted a phone that has a pretty good camera (w/ flash, night mode etc.,)..uses a micro SD ( san disk transflash ), secondary camera for video calling, nice speakers like the samsung one (bang and olufsen technology) and a bit sturdy..I cant help it, there are times that I unintentionally drop my phone..but not too hard..I dont like too sensitive phones..size is not a problem for me..I was thinking on getting the nokia N95 however its to expensive for me..so I'll settle for this candidates..
adri, 05 Jan 2009I struggle to get mxit on my phone dude have you managed to install mxit yet on your fone if yes pleez advise how
Does mxit even work on this fone.. it keeps giving me an installation error.. and says something 400
Hindustani, 12 Jan 2009menu > phonebook > 8.management > 3.list by > first/last name [choose here]Hi,
Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately the U800 I have does not have those setting options that you mentioned. Under phonebook > 8. is input method wich is something totaly different. I'm from South Africa and maybe that has something to do with it? Maybe a software upgrade might help, think I'll try that. Have to agree with you that this is one good looking phone.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2009i want to buy samsung u800 , i m from india . shud i buy it or not? is the front camera and 3g... more- - - YES. You should buy it. Why? - - -
1. This is perhaps the most beautiful cellphone deviced till date -- needless to say, on Earth.
2. Slim. Well distributed weight. Very comfortable to hold in hand.
3. Also taller than the cheap-soap-case looking NOKs and burn-hole-in-pocket overpriced SEs. Hence comfortable by all means -- psychologically, too.
4. I use mechanical and digital SLRs for still photos. So unfair it would be for me to comment on its built-in camera. But there are more than enough options to toy around for you -- provided that you first successfully "discover" the keys for the camera menus and settings. [Albeit, I'll be here to help.]
5. The screen is outstanding. By God. Setting wallpapers is a TRUE pleasure.
6. The L700 in Indian market comes with the Taj Mahal as a living world theme. U800E doesn't have this theme. It's a plus, actually. I sincerely and strongly oppose setting a tomb picture -- no matter how pretty -- as anybody's phone or PC wallpaper.
- - - NO. You shouldn't buy it. Why? - - -
1. The battery indicator is rigged. Never shows actual battery status. In my case, the 1st bar goes out in 2 days. The last 2 bars go out in less than a day.
2. The battery is horrifying and terrible. Plain phone calls [each less than 5 minutes] and nothing else -- a full charge lasts less than 2 days. With a 2GB card inserted, battery never lasts more than 24 hrs. No matter what you do -- or not do anything at all.
3. The speaker is the worst one in volume. Even high frequency violin, bagpipe MP3s are not audible enough to be set as ringtones.
4. SMS alert tones can NOT be customized. NOWAY !!!
5. The handsets are all invariably made in UAE. The 7h and 8th digits of IMEI -- 02.
6. Tri-band, GPRS. No 3G. No front camera.
7. Samsung India customer support will give you lots of attitude if you ever call them seeking support. They won't call you names -- that's a given, I hope. Better consult your fortune-telling witch before calling Samsung India's tele-support personnel.
- - - SAMSUNG SGH U800E is the handset the above points were all about. That is the variant available in the Indian market.

The Nokia's you mention are devices that are made from higher class materials (thicker stronger metals) and are way more expensive. So one would expect a classy button in stead of that plastic, red-thing. The U800 is a nice phone but on a way lower price-scale, which also speaks out looking at the possibilities of the OS, the specs of the device, etc.
Comparisson: One shouldn't cry about cheap materials on a Nissan Micra, but one could when confronted with cheap materials on a Nissan 350Z.
