This is pure BS.
I have handled this phone but if samsung was smart they would just put a Symbian or WinMo OS on it.
Great screen but the 360 thing is BS.
Will be a gigantic flop for both Samsung and Vodafone.
Could someone post Java API (eg from jbenchmark.com)?
There is a new JavaVM form IBM - J9!
do not take out a contract on this phone , it does not work right
will not recieve emails att all face book updates once a dat if you are lucky
vodafone no about it but are still allowing people to take out a contract on a phone that does not work
they have no idea when and if they can fix it
look at postes on this site
Dan, 22 Nov 2009You cant. You have to be a vodafone contract customer to use any of the features on the device... moreDan @vodafone.retail
I would buy this phone and have been Vodafone customer for 8 years.
The only thing holding me back is I can't install any Nav software on it. i.e Route 66 etc etc.
Too bad for Vodafone
davaxhiu, 21 Nov 2009hi all. i got one H1 for my birthday, but i dont have a vodafone no and so no 360 account.how ... moreYou cant. You have to be a vodafone contract customer to use any of the features on the device. its a purpose built phone for vodafone. you could always port your number to a super sim and then use it fine. hope this helps. dan @ vodafone retail.
smokie 325is, 21 Nov 2009Wow, cant belive that samsung actually made a degraded Omnia HD with better os and screen.... ... moreThis phone is heavily integrated with Vodafone 360 service therefore Vodafone development team is taking care of the support rather Samsung. I assume the support would probably better than previous Samsung handsets.
Gama, 21 Nov 2009Hi again, another "bug"
Well i have used the Mass storage and pc studio, and when i use it,... moreHi Gama,
Yes. If you use PC Studio (slower) mode to transfer your file, you won't miss any calls, though SMS can be received but can't be read. Calls can be answered. This makes me think about Windows Mobile. Neither mass storage mode or Active Sync mode will affect the phone function. Only exception is the memory card can't be read by phone during mass storage mode.
Gama, please post any of your concern on Vodafone 360 forum so that the development team can look into them.
Wow, cant belive that samsung actually made a degraded Omnia HD with better os and screen.... I expect the support of this phone to turn into turds in a matter of weeks just as it happened for the INNOV8 and the Omnia HD... Good luck to those of you how buy this phone, may the firmware updates keep rolling in for you guys, now, as for me, Goodbye Samsung!!!!!!
Hi again, another "bug"
Well i have used the Mass storage and pc studio, and when i use it, the phone turns Off, and i have lost some Calls or read late the SMS , which is bad, because if i transfer a movie of 800megabytes, during the transfer I am unreachable :( is there anyway to turn around this problem?????
Can you disable the keyboard sound when typing a message? the key stroke? I found that i can disable the phone sounds, but that will turn off every sound and not just the keyboard. It will disable apps or the turn of sound or slide to unlock.
I just want to disable the sound of the keyboard while writing a message.
By the way, is your battery during long time?
Mine got 2 days i think. I disabled the vibrating while typing or messing around with the phone, brightness to the lowest level, turned of UMTS...let's see if i can get more time of battery.
hi all. i got one H1 for my birthday, but i dont have a vodafone no and so no 360 account.how am i supposed to use the maps , mail ,and other things.
Any ideas ??
Gama you can do the latest software update via PC Studio. Voda said they were sending out the latest software but after taking someones advise here, I updated the software last night myself using the PC Studio and the phone appears to be working tip top! My emails and 360 are working good now. It has worked for some (see the Voda forums) but not for all. Unfortunately it wont do anything about the 3 message tones lol
Anonymous, you should already have the YouTube app installed on your phone and if it is saying you need flash, then there may be a software issue on your phone. Also try updating the software, if that dont work you may need to return it for an exchange.
K, 20 Nov 2009Thanks again Alex for the PC Studio tip, upgrade done and all going well on the phone!!! :) No... moreI thought the problem was in the equipment, then i went to Vodafone, and they took note of these cumplaints, and registered it on their task team so they can improve the software, the lady on the shop, told that vodafone is colecting every all the data that users give and feedback so they can change as soon as possible the firmware.
I showed them about wallpaper or the 3 ringtones or choosing by the song to atribb to a contact etc, and they got admired and tkx for the advise , there are many features that employees in vodafone arent aware, about problems or handicap on this software . so every time we found a new problem , its a good thing to post on their foruns
Well after knowing that my prblems are general, i've got relivied, and now i am enjoyng more this phone because i know they are working on its improvement.
And a firmware is being worked.
but how?when i go to youtube it says to download the latest flash player and when i go for it then it says that the file is not suported?
so how ca i watch something on youtube?
Yes. You can watch Mobile YouTube and sites like Daily Motion. It doesnt support BBC iPlayer though.
can someone please tell me if the H1 supports flash player content like youtube?
Thanks again Alex for the PC Studio tip, upgrade done and all going well on the phone!!! :) Not sure about the silver looking cheap, I thought the silver one looks lovely and the black looks cheap lol But its all about personal taste :)
Hi Gama, a lot of things are about getting used to the phone. I used Nokia for about 10 years and therefore to go onto Samsung and finding things are different took some time getting used to. If you take into consideration the points you have raised against the excellent qualities the phone has, the small flaws are something you easily get used to. I was looking for a way to customise the message tone and set uo wallpaper, but after surfing the net, playing with the apps, etc.., I forgot about the smaller issues!
Im sure you will enjoy the phone after you get used to it more.
Got one yesterday!
Well, internet by wifi even with 360º on ,get crash after minutes of websurf.
U only have 3 tones for SMS, cant change or add more tones.
The lock is after some seconds and u cant disable like iphone.
The sounds or pictures , u cant assign quickly to ringtone or contact, u must go to the contact and select the ringtone or picture, and u must scroll by 16 gigs of songs i u have them...imagine finding a song in thousands :s there is no Search!
Then if u use Search on the right button , u cant use the search and use it with contact .
There are no Wallpapers to set..impossible!
The Call button doesn-t show Missed calls , etc etc unless u choose the category one by one....:(
When conecting to PC...the phone is shut down, u cant do any with it, calls sms etc... :(
i know that that these are bad things, but i hope that they solve this quickly, because this phone has a lot of potential and so cool....i dont want to give it back :(
