You all never stop going on about Mobile Phones defects, so what?, ya all should know better that nothing is perfect, anyway,i went to 02 Shop, and had a demonstation of Z510 and i fell in love with it, planning to get it next week, but does it have flash led?, althought i don't see one, but is it a line on the front while phone is closed, and i wonder how long the phone's talk time when the 3G / UMTS is switched on?
I've come down from a pda phone to the z510. It is a great phone. Using half its memory to store 167 mp3's at 400kb per song. If you have more contacts than that - heck you can assign ringtones per contact. The mmf message tones are standard - go make your own and have fun! I would have expected for the phone to be locked but I've put another sim (work's) in there and works fine. Watch file sizes and canvas size for jpegs. Watch file sizes for mp3s also. Let's not forget they are phones - not powerlaptops :)
Hi. just got this phone two days ago from o2...all seemed to work fine but the mp3 player broke. it would play with it on mute but not when the volume was turned up. also when accessing a game in silent mode it asks "play sound in silent mode?". If answer yes it doesnt, if no it does, ie it does the opposite of what you ask for volume wise. I got o2 to replace the phone but the second one has exactly the same problem. Has anyone else had this problem? and if so how can it be fixed? ps restoring factory settings is no help. Cheers
Need help, I have some little icon blinking non-stop beside the audio icon. It's not sms message (or mms), those come on top of screen... it's next to audio icon on the right. I've looked the whole manual and that icon is not even inside it. Anyone else has that problem?
to John63 -- you can check time without opening top... just hold down the volume button.
I bought 2 highend samsung flips,12 month warrenty.both fones lost many major functions within 11 months.I spoke to friends with same fones,same defective consumer product, same defects at 12 and 13 months respectively.I am in the market for a new fone and I like the look of z510 but wonder if the same level of PLANNED OBSOLESENCE has been applied to this fone by the samsung bigwigs.Dud samsungs were e700smh."once bitten twice shy" mr.samsung
Hi! Does anyone know how to change the alarm volume on the Samsung Z510 - it's really loud!! I can't seem to adjust it like I can the ringtone volume. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I intend to buy this phone. Could someone summarize those points (if possible where in the menu) :
- is it possible to have an mp3 ring tone AND vibrator ?
- is it possible to put an mp3 for message tone without any conversion ? Does the phone vibrate with message tone ?
now at first i was unsure if this phone was trying to be a lg u880 or a v3. but having looked deeper beyond looks and stuff im so amazed. i sold one to a customer the other day and he is so thrilled with it he came back to get one for his wife. after having a little play myself i was tempted to throw mine away and get it but stupid contract is 18 months grrrrrrrrrrr. well not fair!
Try reading the Samsung site for the 'real' specs.
The phone does not have expandable memory.
WTF is happening to SAMSUNG? they are no more innovative, this crap is the same E710 with some software mods !!!
Hi, I'm thinking about buying this phone but I would really appreciate all your opinions on this phone to help me decide.
Firstly, I've read on a few websites that this phone doesn't have an expandable memory but on others it says it does? Can anyone help me with this?
Also, I'm wondering if the quality of the camera is good as some people have said it's not that great.
Any other comments on the samsung z510 would be great. Thanks.
My Z510 browser has gone south, the phone restarts when I try to connect to any wap/html site.
Seems unfixable without resetting the phone.
Be aware of this problem, if anybody else has had it and fixed it, pls let me know how.
The outside display won't allow animated screensavers and the phone is a bit laggy. Could be the telstra software tho.
I've been a nokia user forever and finally thought it was time to change. I'm so glad i did!!
I've had this phone for 2 weeks now and it is awesome. It looks and feels amazing. Great Camera, MP3 player, and video calling is cool. The GUI is also very good.
Plus if you turn off 3G/UMTS (SETTINGS -> NETWORK -> NETWORK MODE), the battery lasts about 4-5 days.
One question tho...
Does anyone know how to change the colour of menus? Is the default blue/white the only choice?
My girlfriend had a T100 a couple of years ago and you could change the menu colour to one of six colours.
Did anyone buy anything from Plemix.com? I really like this Z510 but it seems like they don't have it in U.S yet, so I guess I have to order it online but I haven't bought anything online yet........ Pls help.... Thanks
To John63 and others.
To get the clock on the front (small) display to show, you must press the media buttons on the front panel for some time (about 3~5 seconds) until either the clock shows or until the "Unlock?" prompt appears (if you have the keyguard on).
"First initial charging you should charge the battery for 16 hrs without any interruptions but I guess most of us here are so eager to use the phone at once."
This applies to old Nickel Cadmium batteries NOT Lithium Ion/Polymer, even though phone shops still tell you this...
Lithium batteries do not trickle charge, as over charging them would kill them.... Essentially lithium batteries hold 100% of their charge on the first charge and should be topped up regularly.
Leaving on charge for 16 hours will make no difference, as the phone will cut off the charge when the battery is full to prevent damage to the battery.
