hey,I was wondering if there is someone that could make a "live" review of this phone & when I say this I am asking the current Samsung z510 owner's...
heres a little bit of advice to anyone looking at gettin this phone...do not as it is actually sh**. had it for a month and the camera is broken, when writing texts it will think you havent pressed a button or have pressed it twice, and it often chooses not to send/recieve texts for no good reason.
DO NOT GET THIS PHONE
samsung have let me down
Please Help!!! someone.
I have this phone and am trying to change my message tones. I have read the posts about changing the msg tone to mmf format, but even when i have mmf format i can only change my voice call or video call, there is no option about msg tones.
I think the phone is pretty cool, but the plastic cover on the back is a bit creaky and become loose after a while.
Have scrolled through pages of comments. but can find nothing to answer my MMS question on the Z510. My g'friend bought it for herself. The O2 SIM is fine (tested in another handset), but the handset somtimes chooses not to receive MMS's. Also, whenever you take a picture and try to send as MMS, a msg appears "this media cannot be attached". Have tried all 4 picture sizes, but nothing. This is on top of the earlier issue that we had of getting the correct WAP/GPRS settings correct. Is it a simple handset settings things? Has anyone had similar issues? Can anyone help me? Thx,
I am pretty sure I want to upgrade to this phone.. my current samsung's call quality is diabolical and very muffled. is the call quality good on this one?
hi im just wondering i want to get this fone and i looked at a workingd demo and i tryed to zoom for a photo and it said resolution to high the next best resolution level i could zoom at is VGA whats with this? its either this or the nokia 6280
to flip the camera vertically use the volume up button on the left side of the phone and the volume down one to flip the cam horizontally..........
Yes the phone can ring and vibrate at the same time, and to take a self pic use the up and down keys on the side of the phone to flip the picture.
Hi, I was wondering if this phone ringing volume is loud? and also, i would like to know how is the pictures' quality taken from this phone? thanks
I get this phone for 2 days now and it's lovely.
Besides that I have 2 questions:
- When taking picture (self portrait) the phone does not flip the image. So my head is reverse and that's annoying. Do we have to flip the phone to take portrait or is there a special config somwhere ? What's strange is that is that when doing video call, the the phone flips the imgae to normal position ...
- what's nice is to define tones for messages. But it seems that it's not allowed to use mp3 tones for msg. Only mmf formated one. I have transformed my mp3 to mmf, but the sound is too weak. Is there a way to control the volume for the msg sound or is there a way to put there mp3 ? You can use mp3 for ringtone, so why not for msg tone ?
hi i got 2 questions
i had samsungs before and I wondered if they finally sorted that the phone can vibrate and ring the same time?
and if you can have your own text message tones?
cos thats 2 features i miss from nokia
How long does the battery actually last on this phone. I have a z500 and the battery life is about 2 days max I upgraded to nokia n70 and battery lasts for over a week. so it isn't that 3g phones battery lasts not very long. I believe its samsung
To all the people saying this is a copy of Moto V3,V31,V3x.
The Samsung z510 keypad design and function is superior. I hate the 'plate' style keypad on the Moto's.
im thinking about getting the z510 at the moment i have the walkman w500 do you think i should change? w500 is great but i like change
do all the z510 in australia have telstra software loaded on them? cos i wanna buyone of ebay and am scared to do so
Appy, Thanks. I just figured that out last night. Voice calling on this phone means make a "voice" call, not a "video" call, not "voice dial". I used it a lot with my RAZR while using my bluetooth headset. I just had to put those numbers on speed dial and deal with it. Other than that, it is far superior to the RAZR in every way.
I upgraded to this phone and it wouldnt charge properly,it would stop after a few mins and I had to unplug it and plug it back in for it to charge again,eventually it got so bad I sent it back and got another one only for it to have the same fault so I sent it back and got another one and to my dismay this one did the same and after having it a day it went really warm to touch and the battery drained within 5 mins and turned itself off, needless to say I returned that one too this all happened over 3 weeks. I was gutted as I really like samsung phones and have had a D500 for 16 months now and havent had a problem with it once. The Z510 is a lovely looking phone and when it works its great only I wouldnt recommend it. There is no way it can just be me with 3 faulty ones can it????
You might find the problem is the 3G clock update.
A lot of 3G phone seem to have this problem with the clock jumping time. I would try turning the 3G off and just using it on 2G for a wile, That should fix your clock problem.
