Hi GAZ, My battery is up to 6 days now on GSM Mode only and on the CS mode. Thanks so much. LOVE THIS PHONE!!
i could not get o2 downloads on o2 3g x4.it says unsuitable format???
Is there any way to make the speaker's louder on this phone? also I can't get my downloads via limewire or windows media player on to the phone any ideas? sorry to sound thick
Not had any problems with this phone apart from it apparently not being compatible with O2's video service!! Has anyone managed to view any video clips on O2 Active using this phone? Whenever I try it says "Your phone is not compatible with O2's video service".
I like my Z500, I gota say I've had to problems with the clock or alarms, and the battery life seems fine to me, although I suppose it depends what you were expecting.
I do have one gripe. How the hell can you get Java apps on the phone? I've tried copying them over with the data cable to the file download folder. All that seems to do is give me a file. Sure I can download games via the next, but I've got to pay for them.
Does anyone know how to copy java apps onto the phone and run them? Is there any third party software to let you do this?
Hi andy i have this phone i only brought it once on o2 and i aint had a problem wiv the alarm or the clock loosing time as you have mentioned. It must be the vodafone ones only that have these problems as vodafone install their own red and grey menu's on all their phones now. That's one of the main reasons i never buy from vodafone, they customise the menu into a ugly red and grey and you dont get the full samsung feel to the handset. Imagine that, 262 thousand colours yet vodafone only wants you to see 2, how disgusting.
Vodafone also lock their phones even on contracts and take out some features such as mp3 ringtones as they want you to pay for them from their wap site which is why they customise the menu with the vodafone live key.(mp3 ringtones feature was disabled in k700i on vodafone, may have also been disabled on z500 but one things for sure vodafone always change/mess the menu up on all their phones leaving the phone less reliable-soz for the blog like post but vodafone really p me off. My advice to you would be to sell the dam thing asap while you can still get most of what you paid for the phone and buy one on o2 which i have done since o2 dont tamper with the phones menu.
putin *#1546792*# and nowt happens press cetre button it says requesting and the says unknown command,,must be doing something wrong arnt i
Hi, I am not to sure if my Z500 has the alarm problem? i heard about it and so i set 2 test alarms the 1st one to go in 10 mins time and the other in 15mins time and they both went off! i have S/W version Z50CDZEF8 you find it by entering that *#1546792*# and go to version, also make sure you change the Network & Call settings and the Service Domain from Combined to CS, before i did this i was getting MAX 1 day and now im getting MIN 3 1/2 it takes the little G of by the reception this stops the phone from being connected to GPRS 24/7 which saves the battery life..yes it means your phone is just not constantly connected..
well timmy how is your battery lasting now . did that do any thing for your standby time..

I am just wondering what are these code for...*7465625*28782# and *7465625*28638# ??
I bought my Z500 from Singapore.
love the fone but i find the battery life blows ...... drops at least one bar after 12-16 hours with only text messeging
does that taking off of the g sign mean i can no longer access gprs in 900-1800mhz setting,,or does it mean it will take longer to access the internet using gprs.am using 2.5g mode until 3g comes.
hello i was wondering if the z500 has external photo caller id...and if anyone has any pictures?
i am now on my fourth handset in 6 weeks & every one of them has had a problem with the alarm not working about 60% of the time. 2 of the handsets also had problems with the time jumping back & forth. really like this phone & i dont really want to change but getting bit p****d off now as samsung & vodaphone must know of problem yet keep sending faulty phones out

Great phone! Love it! i have has a Sharp V902/ Sony Ericsson V800/ Motorola V1050 and Nokia 6680, This is my FAV! By far
hi leesa you wright the fone does lose time, you have to take it off automatic update with the network. Then it will work fine afterwords. Some networks don't sapport it. As for the alarm there is a problem with the software of the z500, samsung is working hard on that problem, also on the problem of the battery.
Hope this helps you.
hi, just got the phone and it looks good, only problem i am having is that i cant transfer songs from my itunes folder to the phone can anyone help ?
