Can I you guys ask something before I go and buy the phone? Firstly does the bluetooth allows you to send everything and with no limit of size? Because fir example Sharp does not allow files greater than 100kb to be transferred to another phone or to be received. Secondly, is the memory of the phone shared? I mean all sony-ericsson phones store only 200 messages but nokia phones as many as you want! Thirdly can it be connected with the pc and having all the operations I want? Send/receive mp3, photos, videos, backup etc? What about java applications? And lastly, is vodafon the only company that distributs the phone? I'm asking this because I live in Greece and no other company offers the phone. I don't need the 3g features but I need the mem slot and I like the specific phone! And even I buy it from vodafon can I update the software and remove all the vodafon-live shorcuts and menus?
Thank you and sorry for the "questioner" I wrote!!!!
the actual name for 3G is 3rd generation...it allows users to surf the mobile internet at higher speed..and enjoy a cheaper rate..theres a new feature called 3gTV it allows user to watch tv too..and the best feature is video call..it lets the other party(who has a 3g phone too) to see u when talking at the same time..tats aka video call..the best thing abt it is tat the price is the same..for example if the price plans has free incomin call..it applys to both voice call and video call.. hope these can help u understand more abt 3g..
I wonder, why my post has been deleted. Only critizing the bad battery, it was "clean" post afterall.
Well, I will put it again....
So, many of these new samsung mobiles are suffering of bad battery (you can read the reviews) and their standby time don't even exceed the values samsung have given. That's very rude for the customers, it's absolutely cheating in my opinion.
Z500 is an excellent example of this. In 3G mode standby 200H, and 2G 260h = 8,3days.
If you don't use your phone at all (or a little), it won't even get close to that what it should.
Battery life can be extended by turning off the 3g searching,,menu,,settings,,connectivity.network,,netwrok mode,,change from automatic to gsm 900/1800.... this was taken from someone elses message, not my own knowlege.
Does it support MP3 ringtones? yes it does.
Does it has a own MP3 player of its own or do i have to Download myself after i buy? yes it has its own mp3 player.
what does the package include? (Data cable? Ear Piece)? That really depends on where you get it, i got mine from vodafone, and i got a wire handsfree kit, data cable, 32MB transflash memorycard and adapter for it so i can use it with my computer. data cable to sync it with my adress bokk on the comp. and a cd with the samsung photo shop thing..... I think thats it, but there is one draw back you need to take it off automatic network selection... some one said how to do it earlier, it really does save battery power, i was on auto and the battery ran out after a day!! agh! but put it on the 1800/900( i think) and it lasts about 3 days... if i dont play with it ( games mp3 videos etc) anyway, hope this helps you, Thanks for calling o2!
Im considering buying this phone in the near future. Could anyone tell me if i had made the right choice? cause have been reading the comments and they are all rather negative.
i have a few questions too. Does it support MP3 ringtone? Does it has a own MP3 player of its own or do i have to Download myself after i buy. what does the package include? (Data cable? Ear Piece)
Thanks alot for anyone relpying to me. i may not know you but i am truely gald for your help and unbiased comments.
I have no idea how to load music onto my phone from the computer, the manual for this aspect of the phone didnt arrive and i need help! please post any advice
thanks grace x
I have just upgraded from a Nokia 6230 to this phone, I have had 1 problem with it since getting it today, which was that on 3G, I had no signal in my house, I phoned Voadafone, they was useless, it was only by looking through the phone that I found that I could change it from 3G to GSM. Since, I have done this, no problems.
But I hope that I have no problem with it as some of you on here are having loads of problems.

i wouldnt recommend buying the samsung z500. i have had mine for 2 months there r three alarms on the phone and organiser and none of them hardly ever go off, there must be a manufacturing fault as i have read some other reviews and people have stated the same thing, there is supposed to be 65 ringtones also i can only find 15!the battery doesnt last that long either,to be honest if it hadnt hd an accident i would have kept my e700 cos this is rubbish. but unfotuatly i am now stuck with it as on contract.
The mp3 and mid files sound low. Sometimes the mp3's and mid's sound pretty ok, all depending on the mid or mp3...
But if you use mmf, which Samsung works great with, the sound is gonna be very loud. I have to turn the volume down a bit, because it's too loud.
I have had the phone about 2 months and im warning you not to buy it the battery life is compleatly useless.I dont use it that much but still have to charge it every other day.
Hi, I have a problem with a samsung Z500. It ended up going into the washing machine and getting soaked. As I assumed that it would be destroyed by the water I got a new phone and sim through the insurance.
Strangely, after about 7 hours on a radiator I decided to try to power it up using a different SIM and it worked. I allowed it to dry for another few hours and its almost perfect.
Now when I put my new sim into it it will allow me to make/receive calls for about the first few mins and then all incoming and outgoing calls are rejected. "Call Rejected" is displayed. Obviously to get the new phone and sim, the old sim was blocked. Could it be that the phone was also blocked or is it simply that the water damaged it in a way that only allows calls to be made for the first few mins? Does anybody have any solutions cause it seems to be a real waste to bin a phone that is other wise perfect.
Just bought the phone seems very good. Does anybody know how i can transfer the photos on my Samsung E800 onto this phone?
Hi, can anyone tell me how to put photos to the names in my contact list? Also cannot seem to email pics like the the E700 did. It keeps saying file too big? Nice phone but alarm is unreliable and need the email function which does not seem to work
im comparing this fone with the SAMSUNG E730, i just wanted to kno any bad things about the fone, and wats the video recording like? does it last for a long time, and what is the quality like? is it like the E720 coz dam taht was good !
Hi all. Can anyone tell me how i can download or upload things from my pc to my phone and vice versa?? With using my USB Data cable that the phone came with. I have used the Cd disc provided (i must have the edited version) cos it does not explain how to do it. Please if anyone can help i'd be most grateful.
after i read some of the opinions i saw that many sayy the ringing volume and the mp3 volume is low ?? is this true ? and it is o1 megapixel ryte ? would the clarity of the pic be good in tymes of day and night as well? and how big is thememory of this phone? how many songs adn pictures could it hold ? help me and reply pls..thx!
