hey, im trying to get my phone connected to the pc so i can transfer pics and mp3's but it doesnt seem to be working. ive installed all of the drivers and pc suite on to my pc from the cd. ive then gone onto the pc suite but most things are faded out so i cant click on them, ive went into help and it says wen i first loaded it up it should have asked for registration n stuff but it never. does ne1 have annything i can try, instructions or something???
this was posted by natalie. I have exactly the same problem any ideas?
thanks gung but se too uninteresting and box like.also display nowhere as good as 500.
and.. get the sony ericsson v600i . best 3g phone i have had my hands on brill standby
Great design,display and ease of use, but:
-only samsung bluetooth headset works with it.
-battery life is appalling even after switching off 3g
-one week delay in samsung tech. help desk returning calls
-problem with sync to sony vaio laptop
-saved resized photos on phone cannot be found.
would like to keep the phone but after so many probs in first ten days may well take it back if sansung don't resolve the probs.
akr if you are still inside the 14 day return take it back . i had the samsung z500 . the sony ericsson v600i. and now the sony ericsson w800 . which i will stick with brill phone. i found the sony ericssons to have better standby s. vodafone rule..the v600i is a brill phone its just the 3g reception in my area is not very good . better near big towns and citys. will wait a year . the phones can only get better .but the w800 will keep me happy for a while .. brill cam on it . 2 mega pixel . 512 mb card standard ..mp3 player is class. looks like sony ericsson beat them again .. nokia samsung the rest will follow.
I got my Z500 a few days ago, the transflash card that I got with the phone didn't work so I called Vodafone and they said they will give me a new phone. Has anyone else experienced this problem???
i tried this phone nice wee phone . but battery life is terrible . get a sony ericsson v600i if you want decent battery life for a 3g phone i was getting 2 days . with heavy use downloading video s. but if you want a phone for mp3 get the sony ericsson W800 which i now have it is so easy to use and the battery life is brill. sony put a lot of thought into looks and battery life . samsung just went for looks. the sony ericsson W800 . Walkman .......check it out . best phone i have had to date . 512mb card standard for your music . it will take up to a 2gb card... who needs a i pod . when you can carry this bit of kit on your person..
the only problem i have is my battry is only latsing a day!every night i must recharge the thing!and its`t that i use it much!
My Z500 phone will be on Orange Network (UK) and they do not have an option to change the skin/theme colours. Is there any way that I can change it or add new ones?
If you save the contacts to phone memory (not the sim card) you can store a wealth of info, you just have to go into the menu and select add number. You can store mobile, home, work, 2 emails, their address etc. for each of the 1000 contacts.
it can store several numbers per name if u are using the phone memory...yeah, d alarm clock is crap..sometimes it works, sometimes it does not..i cant change d skin & i cant remove d operator logo..it's bcoz my phone is TIM branded..can anyone restore d orig settings?
As far as I can see you can only save one number per contact and yes its pretty easy to synchronise, the only trouble I am having with the phone is getting my songs to the mp3- pulling my hair out here!!
But does that mean the Z500 can only store 1 phone number per contact on the phone? On the E720 you can have 5 numbers per contact (home, office, mobile, fax, other) and most of my contacts have at least 2 or more numbers each!
Also, is syncronising the phone book, calender etc with the PC fairly straightforward?
You can store 1000 numbers on the phone plus whatever your sim card holds.
Under each contact you can save, name, number, 2 email addresses, homepage and birthday. Also job title, position in company, nickname and notes.
You can store 200 messages between your folders, plus what you have on your sim.
I'd ordered (and was quite excited about) the E720 on Orange, until I suddenly discovered the Z500 on their website and immediately changed my order becuase it appears to have everything the E720 has, and so much more (3G, infrared, speakerphone, memory card), but I have a few questions for any helpful soul who owns one of these handsets...
1. How many phone numbers can be stored in the phonebook (home, office, mobile, etc)
2. What other categories are there in the phonebook (emails, URLs, notes, etc) for the contact's information?
3. How many SMS messages can be stored in each of the folders - inbox, outbox and drafts folders?
Well, this is my SECOND Z500! The first I took back due to faulty alarm and clock. I've had this one for 2 days and I thought it was going to be ok but I have my doubts! Last night I set my alarm and it came on as expected to wake me up so I thought to myself, so far so good. Then I was transferring data from my old phone to z500 via bluetooth and noticed that my clock had stopped for the duration of me transferring and swapping data for approx 2 hours. So my new phone looks like it too has a fault in the clock. I'm getting really cheesed off with it now. I'll give it one more chance,if no good, then this will also be going back.
I have tried to drag and drop also but nothing- what type of files are you downloading? Maybe I need to convert mine to something else? I just want to save my songs to the media player
Have you tryed to drage and drop the files into there proper folders. A midi file to the ringtone folder etc. try it has to work, I only getthis message if the file is put to the wrong folder.
Thats the message I am getting and its driving me crazy- have tried everything!
The downloading thing - I phoned vodafone and they said it was a known fault with vodafone live and the z500 - they refunded all the costs I had incurred and said they are 'working on it' - and to phone back in a week if I still had probs. Since then, I have managed to download a couple of video clips no prob, but still intermittent probs.
Also - cant move music from my pc on to my phone. Says 'this file is not an audio file and is not suitable for this folder' or something. Same thing with W4A files and Mp3s. Cant understand it. Getting v. annoyed now....
