I have some questions about this phone:
1. Can you change tracks and volume with closed phone using buttons on his sides?
2. Is music played on headphones enough loud and good quality?
3. Is there any original samsung's battery for this phone better than standard 960 mAh?
Thanks in advance!
"De-Branded mine. It was 500v (Vodafone) and now the live button has gone (yippee) from right soft key and I have contact button in its place and left softkey is now for creating messages"
Would you mind posting how you did this? In particular setting the right soft-key to be "Contacts"
Do NOT buy this phone! I bought it in December '05, and the battery life is terrible...so bad Samsung discontinued the Z500 due to complaints on this matter. The battery would be on charge all night and beep 'low battery' early afternoon the next day. I had 2 and they were both as bad as each other. Big mistake buying it.
I have to chose between motorola e770 and samsung z500. I am looking for a cheap phone that have an mp3 player. If i would buy an mp3 player and a phone it would be too expensive for me. So i have to chose between these two phones? What do u know about samsung z500, how is the quality of the sound, and can it accept a 512mb microSD (transflash)
I look forward to hear from you guys. Thanks.
i bbort this fone off ebay for 20 bucks and it works like a charm..... 1 bad thing is i had too much porn so it stuffed it up....
The Z500 had a short life on the shelves mainly because its 'pony'. It has a short battery life not a great deal of memory for a smartphone (without a transflash)..you also cant use downloads i.e realtones as a message alert tone..a common feature on most samsung models. Sorry but the Z500 is not a good handset to come out of samsung..im trading mine RIGHT IN.
Just got this phone secondhand and impressed with it. Like the cool blue clock showing all the time on the front but it would be nice if date showed permanently as well.
shame that when you have missed a call or got text message that the outer LCD don't flash on and of periodically to show indication that someone called without you having to open up the phone. That little mod would be cool and it wouldn't wear down the battery that much more.
Anyone know what the maximum frequency is for mmf? I have the Yamaha program and wanted to go MA-7 at 48k but the phone wont accept it so I had to go with the lower quality sound of MA-5 at 21k sampling. Reason I ask is that I had a sms talking tone mp3 and had to convert it to wave and then to MA-5 mmf so I can use it as a talking tone in mmf format for when I have a text message come in. Shame you just cant use mp3 for SMS tone.
De-Branded mine. It was 500v (Vodafone) and now the live button has gone (yippee) from right soft key and I have contact button in its place and left softkey is now for creating messages.

To Pebbles: TransFlash MicroSD is the name of the freakin card you put in the Z500. Fits perfectly into mine. Do u want me to take a picture of it and send it to you...Why dont you do bit more research b4 saying anything. My computer is not shit, it takes that long because ive used up most of the 1GB on the card, its the phone not the computer.
hey i have a samsung z500 and a couple of games in *.jar/*.jad format that i want to pass to the cellphone... can anyone help me? i think that i need to get a different flex version or something...
