I REALLY want to buy a Samsung SOUL, but why is the metallic pink not available in South Africa? I really find the ONLY colour available here quite dull (sort of a bronze gunmetal)and a bit butch.
Gsm Arena Eindhoven, 04 Sep 2008I have a little question to ask, I wanna buy the U800 for my self but the buttons on the dummy... moreI have just got the Samsung U800 in pink and i love it the keys are so easy to use i would recommend it to anyone
buttons are crap! you have to use your nail to press realy hard, after a while texting becomes quite painful.
This phone is very poor compared to any nokia or motorala.
The instructions are a joke they tell you very little about all the phones features, I emailed samsung to see if there was a more comprehensive instruction info available but they said no but did give me a premium rate nuber I could call to get any info I need! LOL yeh right!
Dont buy it!
I have a little question to ask, I wanna buy the U800 for my self but the buttons on the dummy we have in the store suck.
How are the buttons on the phone actually?
Carrie-Anne, 31 Aug 2008How do you change your message tone on the U800, there is no sound settings??go to settings then profiles,press options and choose edit press right button now the screen must show on top the profile and under that "message alert type" from here you can change the tone
Nice looking phone. Shame about futures also ring tones are very low, you can barely hear the phone ringing.Lcd goes off so no way to notice if you got sms or a missed call, you have to press a button to turn screen on. You can change the sound of buttons but not to the specific tones that each number has all make the same. Flash is powerful but can not be used as light. Key lock is either off or auto and turns on in just few seconds no way to choose or adjust the time for example after 2 minutes. Complex menu many futures are hidden where you will need hours to find them. Wallpapers and ringtones are very view and not good at all. On the plus points there is a reject list for phone numbers. And yes you can change message ringtone here is how.Go to settings then profiles then press options and choose edit. The screen shows "Normal" or what ever is the chosen profile under that the highlighted box "call alert type" if you press the right button it will change to message alert type from here you can change messages tone.
just received my u800 as upgrade from MotoK1. Am slightly disapointed with the lack of stuff pre loaded on the phone! My K1 came with tons of wallpapers ringtones etc to help you get started before learing how to upload your own.
Also the user interface is not nearly as user friendy as Nokia or motorola.
The instruction manual is not very extensive surprisingly when I read about all the phones functions! In fact a lot of very important stuff isnt even there such as how to copy contacts etc from your old SIM or phone! Whats that all about?
Ill try it for a couple of days but I can see me returning it within the 7 days for something a lot easier to use!
So far Im not a fan of samsung phones!
How do you change your message tone on the U800, there is no sound settings??
Nokia 6500 classic is a good choice, it is a Nokia-quality phone. But the battery's life with bluetooth is only 6-8 hours. I'm using the phone simple business time. I had a N50 before, but this phone very slow and with very-very small character on display. I think, nothing perfect... :)
Has anyone information about U800 battery's life?
Eitan, 29 Aug 2008Why would anyone go for this rather than the Nokia 6500 classic?? The classic is cheaper, has ... moreThe U800 is cheaper than the 6500c. I bought the U800 from Phones4u for £120. The 6500c is £139. So where did the extra £50 come from huh? Check all the price listings before you comment on this phone. I think it is an amazing phone. My phone didnt come with any faults? Samsung have really improved on their Mobile phones. Its worth buying.
Why would anyone go for this rather than the Nokia 6500 classic?? The classic is cheaper, has a Nokia firmware (easier to use than Samsung's firmware)! Just because the camera is slightly better. I've had a 6500c and have found no faults so why spend that extra £50 for a copy?
Somebody please respond to the battery life question because I seem to have a problem with mines, it only lasts upto a day and half!!!
Could a u800 user let me know what the battery life is like on this phone? I really need to know before buying it.
Wow!! did the designteam put a Nokia 6500 classic in a copying machine and then just changed the colour, and i thought the Chinese knock off companies were bad, this is the best Nokia knock of i have ever seen, really..
I've got a N6500 classic. I'm satisfied with it, but the battery is terrible (I use bluetooth).
What about this phone's battery?
amboe81, 08 Aug 2008Can you install your own sms alert tones or are stuck up with (goovy)default sounds like other... moreYes you can insert your own tones, it took me 3 visits to different shops to get the correct information...most sales people think you can't...but you CAN..I've done it!
The Ultimate style in a budget friendly phone. This phone rocks when it comes to features in this price tag. I cudnt find a better phone in my bbudget, not in Nokia & Sony Ericsson. :)
Only one complaint. Difficulty in reading messages in sunlight. Why Samsung? :(
