Is there any way that I can decrease alarm clock volume? It freaks me out every time it goes off! :O
And can is there a way to set up phone book so it would display only contacts stored in the phone memory? I've got double contacs now - one from the SIM card and one from the cell, and it's not very useful.
P.S. @ Bertus - what's the software difference between te 500 an 500v? (I know that e.g. Motorola V360v doesn't have voice recording and V360 does, but I haven't figured out the Samsung difference.)
can you get a battery up grade for this fone? if so does anyone know a good uk web site to but one from
hi...juz wondering is tis phone able to assign ringtone to the group? as i was unable to do so...besides, is it only contacts under phone memory (not under sim card) will be able to be included in group? hope someone can help me on this as it's troublesome to assign ringtone to the contacts one by one...thanks~~
You can make your own themes and change the menu colours,Create your own icons, and soft key fonts/colours.
how do you swap to 2g and wot does this mean.
i this an upgrade of E720 for 3g network??? think it has abit of lack of features...
The battery life is really short bt gets better when switch to 2G sim card. bt the really big problem i hae is tat the phone constantly logs off the network, be it calling or sending sms, either it keep showing connecting or svc nt available, i have to switch off/on then it might work, rather disappointed
Oh yes, and to stop taking photos when it is in your pcoket, put on the key lock pad. It will ask you to press 'OK' if you want to take a photo when the lid is closed.
TO CHARLOTTE: To use the alarm when the phone is switched off, turn on 'auto power' and it will switch on when the alarm is activated.
i've had this phone about 2 months now, had no problems with it other than the battery not lasting that long but also...the button on the side where u hold it to take photos, when it's in my pocket it takes loads of black photo's, i've cought it a few times before its took hundreds but last time i ended up with 31 black photos and had to delete them individually.
anyone know how to turn this off ?
Got the phone on 11th Feb, charged the battery 3 times already, anyone know why the alarm won't work when the phone is switch off???
Can someone tell me how to send a picture from my phone to my email address i have tried and it says settings must be defined do i send it via mms or bluetooth - help confused. Jackie
The only difference between the Z500 & Z500V is the software. Vodaphone put their own branded (really crappy) software on the phone and called it Z500V. All the functions are the same so don't panic! Cheers. :-)
It works! Thanks Bertus. U rock! :)
No, you've got the sam e phone, just a Vodafone model. But I still haven't found out what's the difference between them.
I see everyone is commenting about Z500, but Z500V is quoted on my phone package. This makes me scared that I bought a wrong phone.
Does anybody knows if there is a different between "Z500" and "Z500V".
By the way, I'm a samsung customer from South Africa.
Just bought the phone yesterday. And so far, no complaints. Just today, in the middle of a busy street, I called a friend and the first thing she said was "I hear you, no need to shout!" I was like ??? and said where I was. She paused and said she can't even hear the cars. :D I've been through the menus back and forth, everything works. Haven't tried linking to anything via anything yet, don't have the time now.
Just one q: I may not have stumbled upon it, but I'm not sure even if it's possible... Does someone know if I cange the open/close sound? Thx!
This is a really great phone. It's definetely the right choice.
Bunnx - with regards to the Bluetooth you need to make sure that your Bluetooth visibility is set to on and the default setting is to make your phone invisible
