hi from new zealand
i'm thinking of purchasing this phone. the battery life seems to be the big short-coming of this phone, but i'm used to re-charging my phone everyday. it's just become a habit. and i don't get like 50+ calls per day.
are all the other flaws it has, merely minor, that i can work past, and/or eventually get used to, or is it really gonna be a waste of $700(NZ dollars) in the end?
plz try to be as objective as possible in ur opinions.
does anyone know how to get it to connect to the computer? I have loaded the software and everything but it doesnt appear to be 'connected' can anyone help? and also can anyone explain this battery life thing? thanks

this phone must have the worst battery life ever i have had the phone for six months under an eighteen month contract still got a long way to go, problems with the ring tones and sending picture messaging is there any way i can change this phone six months into a contract because its realy getting on my nerves.
I love this fone. iv only had it like a day but its great. the only fault i would say is the battery life, iv already had 2 charge it loads. the cameras not bad, the music sounds pretty good and the video quality is also vg.
this phone is amazing way better than my last one (nokia 5140) there is no problem with its battery and the ringin volume is louder than my ast one i don't see what the problem is the only thing is im not sure how to delete the pictures that cam with the phone that are locked i can't find anyway to unlock them i would be gratefuk for some help with this thnks.
wen i 1st got da samsung z500 i thought it was gr8 but afta bout 2weeks i got really bored of it... da battery life isnt very gd and i cant get the vodafone wallpaper off my front screen... its really doin my head in!!! alot of people r havin problems with settin and mp3 song as der ringtone.. bit ive managed.. and its quite simple really
the battery life on this fone is ridiculousy low.
IF u get a lot of calls , u will have to charge the fone every day.
if you keep having troubles with ur battery life send it away 3 times for repair. After 3 repairs telstra will end ur contract and you give them the dodgy phone back and can get a different one. My partner had the same problem and this is what he did. Hope it works for you!
SUMSUNG SGH-Z500 3G Mobile Phone.I just updated my mobile phone with Telstra from a NOKIA 5140 to a SUMSUNG SGH-Z500 3G Mobile Phone. After playing around withit for around two Weeks, WHAT A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT The phone has really slow data transfer to PC, Poor PC tophone software that won’t even let you send SMS from your PC or let you get in to your Messaging area of the phone, SUMSUNGhas a long way to go to catch up with NOKIA software which recognizes all NOKIA phones. Poor battery life, the first SGH-Z500battery would only last around 24 hrs if I was lucky. The replacement gives me around 48 hrs if I am lucky and this is only if I don’t usethe phone at all. You have to be closer to the phone tower than other phones to pick up useable signal. For a new 3G phone with somuch hype over it’s features as the 3G phones has the SUMSUNG SGH-Z500 is a very disappointing mobile phone, I made a BIG MISTAKE by going from NOKIA to SUMSUNG and unless some thing is done I would not recommend it to others.What SUMSUNG needs to do as a matter of urgency is to release a battery of a higher quality in order to make the phone equally as efficient as other mobile phones.Further, Samsung software in comparison to Nokia software leaves much to be desired. It is not equal to the tasks required while Nokia software will work on all Nokia phones. When I upgraded my contract I was informed by Telstra that, due to this being new 3G technology that it would be a high performer in terms of what I needed. This is simply not the case.As I am a firefighter and need to remain contactable and am locked into a contract for two years with Telstra I am extremely disappointed with an unreliable phone.
Please guys, i'd really like a fellow z500 owner to contact me at email@example.com as i am very frustrated with this,i cannot set mp3 as ringtone and the .midi save themselves to a very low level and that is how the phone rings no matter what i do.Also, the alarm does not work proper and some other stuff occurs that make this a real pain to use so please e-mail me as i have a few questions.
I'd like to know how to set an MP3 or AMR as ringtone for this, only midis have a 'set as ringtone' option and it says it can set MP3's aswell.Battery life is very wierd for my phone,at times it goes for 4-5 daya but sometimes it lasts just 2 days, with 3G off.Anyway no other complaints its a great music player,very nice camera and video recorder.
