This phone arrived today and have already played with it lots, but seem to have met a problem. I can't get the cover display to remain there. I know thepictures usually fade but it would be nice to be able to keep the clock there and also the little text messgae received icon so that I don't have to keep opening the phone up. Am I doing anything wrong and if so can someone help me?
this phone is absolutely amazimg. i have read evryone's comments regarding this phone. i would like to let you know that 90% of handsets now, will nt hold a charge of more than 4 to 5 days. especially this mdel and 90% of 3G phones. Yes, asung of all people should innnovate a battery that can hold a charge of longer than a day or two, but until they do... keep on chargin!! :)
I cannot fault this phone, I've had it a week, its brilliant, so many little features that make it great, the alarm that can be set to wake me everymorning except weekends with auto power up. I can email my Mum in the UK a video clip of me saying hello! the ring tones are good, I do not have a bad word to say about it, the key pad is fine! texting is easy, similar format to Nokias. I got it free from Telstra so cannot comment on Value for money. Cheers I reccomend you buy one of these Phones...and I do not work for Samsung :o)
This is beautiful, except the keypad, I wish samsung could've done something with the keypad, it's uncustomary of samsung to use something like this, the keypad in this one is like a creation of Panasonic or Sharp
thank u soooo sooooo much whoever helped me with my problems
but i still cant find a pic of the white one but anyways than you soo much and i f u find a pic of the white one plz send it to me
thanx sooo much and cya bye
Apple, if you read some of the comments you'll find along with me that most people think that the phone is fantastic. One MASSIVE complaint, is that the battery needs charging every 2 days or so with average use. Hopefully they will have a more durable lasting battery soon. (Yes in Australia the phone is available in white, check the Samsung Aussie website!)
cn someone tell me straight out

I just received this phone, I have my own personal ringtone set and message tone set with ringing volume up to max. When receiving calls it rings loud, but when receiving messages it is very very quiet. Does anybody have this problem with their own message alert tones (message tones are in mmf format).
i have the motorola razer and im thinking of geting the samsung z510i and i just want to know is it thiner than the razer.
I got my phone Yesterday and been playing with it till now. Phone's Internal screen resolution is extra ordinary brillient (Thanx for Samsung) but two things annoying me a lot and I would sell it ASAP. First! external display swithced off after 3seconds and did not show any kind of display/Info (ie Time, Date, Missed calls or Message alert etc). Second! T9 dictionary option is on as default and can not be disabled. Also Keypad illumination is just white very simple.
i bought the z510 a few weeks ago and it is deadset the most awesome fone. i just have one query, does anyone know how to make the external screen stay on permanently, instead of disappearing after like 10 or 15 secs?
hey..im gettin dis phone..an i think it looks cool..even though they cud have imroved
the camera..anywayz..im not sure i wanna get it now..cauz some of dese comments say dat its basically nice lookin but crapp features..so just to be sure..is it good or not??????
Oh and to add to my review, has anyone else found that when you scroll up and down to check your text before you send it the phone for some reason changes words that the cursor passes through? Very odd and very annoying.
My opinion for anyone considering this phone>>
I decided to opt for this as I thought video calls might be fun but I didn't want to carry a brick round with me, in that respect it is very slim and light. I do have some gripes though which may serve as a warning to others or which perhaps other people here could assist me with. I asked on expansys but got no response.
There is no SMS dictionary, so when T9 fails to recognise an input [eg. it doesn't recognise 'I'll' as in 'I'll kill myself if I have to enter this manually one more time'] there is no option to save it to dictionary for use next time. Your favourite swearwords etc etc will always have to be entered from scratch. A real pain in the backside for anyway who texts a lot.
When typing the message you need to watch the character counter, it doesn't do the rather handy SE thing of letting you know when you're say 20 characters away from going into the next SMS. Message finished and time to send, okay no choice of most recent recipients so click the D, search contacts, tick the box for the person you want and then hit add then wait a moment and then you're ready to send. All a bit laborious and not helped by the slightly laggy software. The keypad doesn't help, the keys need more pressure than you'd think so quite often you'll miss a keystroke. Last but not least when a message arrives clicking view doesn't view it, it just takes you to your inbox. I text a lot, if you don't none of this may bother you.
The camera is not great, I have a good digital camera so it's not why I bought this phone but the quality is nowhere near as good as the camera on the SE K750i and the flash is so feeble as to be pointless, the rotating lens is not covered so I expect it to be coated with pocket fluff soon.
The phone's centre of gravity is such that using it one handed is difficult too.
My other major gripe so far, and one which perhaps someone can help with, is transferring files to it. I have attempted to bluetooth and USB transfer photos to it and it claims not to have space for them. Given I have most of the c.140meg free this really winds me up. The Samsung Studio software it comes with looks like it should make life a doddle but it doesn't and instead you end up p**sing about trying to crop images to fit and being told they exceed maximum file size.
Also the battery life is poor, the first day I used it I managed to run the battery down, admittedly you're playing with it a lot then but even so I was surprised. It comes with a 'standard' battery, I haven't yet been able to find out if there's a higher capacity version available. Setting to 2G helps but it begs the question why you'd compromise yourself with a phone the design of which has obviously been restricted to allow 3G if you're going to then set it to 2G.
Plus points? As a phone it works very well, sounds odd I know but the SE K750i had the lowest ear volume I'd ever encountered which meant on the street it was next to useless. This has a very high quality screen too, bright and sharp. The menu system is logical though the games are poor fare and it could do with a countdown timer in its applications [anyone know if I can get one from somewhere?]. The menu also seems quite shallow, less things to play with than I'm used to.
It seems pretty well built but I have fears that the universal port cover on the side [power, handsfree, USB] will come off with repeated use.
I kept it simply because I'm too lazy to go through the faff of changing things after transferring my number across from Vodafone to O2 at the same time but I couldn't hand-on-heart recommend it.
Hope this helps and if anyone can answer my queries that'd be great. Thanks.
i need help with the message tone, i cannot find where it is ive like spent hours looking for it and i have to call in for help.
Also very impressed with the phone as my old samsung d500 broke on me after 8 months and is no longer good to use, but im very impressed with the picture quality of this new samsung z510. loving it.
can someone plz tell me how to setup the option so this z510 "ring n vibrate" at the same time plz thnx mite..
I use text alot, and I also use this phone, it is rather easy if you ask me. Also go the Samsung as the Motorola is crap. The Samsung Z510 comes in white or black in Australia
I just got the z510 two days ago, and i have to say that if you send SMS often DO NOT EVER GET THIS PHONE! the SMS menu is HORRIBLE, its take forever to get anything done. I have never had this problem with Samsung before, but this is the WROST SAmsung menu ever, and its slow too.
other than that it looks really good, and is well constructed. MP3 is cool
I have just bought the z510 from an o2 shop, flippin brilliant but one of the questions I asked was... does it do voice dialling... OH YES came the reply. Seems that was complete and utter rubbish then! Hmmm thanks o2 looks like they might be getting it back on Saturday!
The XDA mini isn't 3G either, they sold me that before hand! Double grrrr.
Can anyone recommend a fone that does it "all"? I need it to sync with outlook (diary) access the internet on 3g and enable voice dialling. Would also be kinda good if it looked the part (not a blinkin brick!).
