I am from the United States and I wanted to purchase this phone. However, I am not sure if it will work here or if it is compatable with my service. My service has a transferable SIM card.. can you answer my question?
hey paolo, can this phone vibrate and ring at the same time? that's the only thing i hated about my samsung phones so far. when will they ever fix this?
I've bought it 4 weeks ago here in Italy. Branded TIM and NOT locked payd Euro 299,00. Very good phone; battery lasts 2 days in 3G using it with a BT earphone. Please feel free to post me specific questions.
i work for telstra in australia and this phone is $729 here alot better than the v3 phone way more memory too
Hi there, this unit costs USD 370 in Cambodia (3 March 2006). The style is abit different from V3i and many Cambodians love it, but the manual shipped with the Italian language and this is hard for them to read. Some SIM cards may not fit with this unit. I had to go to the network service provider to change for the new SIM...
this beauty custs here at portugal 499€ (samsung official).
at TIM (italian provider) i guess they pay 369€ locked of course.
how much it cost in the market?
play mp3 as ringtones?
how long does the battery last?
STOP comparing it with V3 or watever...just let me know whether it plays MP3 as ring tone and msg alerts or not ! And how's the battery life?
Nice to see these are shipping now, I am looking at getting this phone when available in the UK.
I have a couple of questions.
1. What is the battery life like, especially on 3G... The Samsung site does not states whether their specs are 2G or 3G, but I imagine 2G.... Am concerned than on 3G it might be unusable, hence 2 batteries supplied.
2. Can you lock to 2G only to save battery.
3. Does it support EMS, spec does not state it. ie. animations/emoticons in normal texts.
RiverAce: i've read your post with attention and i wonder how much did you paid for your Z510 italian TIM locked.. please tell us how much did you paid for it just to have a comparison price. here at portugal we have this Z510 unlocked/unbranded for 499 euros.
i think this handset is a really good handset but its a shame that it hasn't goty exspandable memory ohh well will have to wait for samsung z560
dear sirs i have purchased both the v3iand the samsungz510 and i think they are both fine looking phones with diffrent uses and both well built as am sure both will be good buys the only thing i dont like is they are expensive to buy for what they offer should be a little more cheaper jacobs
The Samsung Z510 phone is a perfect blend of style, beauty, and performance. Quite pricey at first release, but may be well worth the wait. It has interesting features such as 3G technology, Bluetooth 2.0, 1.3 MP Camera w/video, and UMTS. The only drawback is that it has only 138 MB of shared memory for storage, and no card slot available. This may be enough for most consumers, but it may be the only lacking difference for the high-end user. My unit came from an Italian provider, and is loaded with TIM pre-flashed software. Manual and informative material only comes in Italian. But if you are technically savvy, you can manage figuring out the functions from prior experience and Samsung "know-how". Overall, this phone can outperform its competitor with wonderful audio and video qualities that Samsung is well renowned for. Break away from the traditional mold and locate one for yourself to use right away...It's incredible and will definitely turn lots of heads!!
Has anyone outthere got one of these phones????????what is the camera like,bluetooth,is the sound quality good,etc,etc.
After using for couple of days the new Samsung Z510 (3G, same design as V3i), http://www.soundtech.com.cy STRONGLY reccomends it. Currently, the very few available are TIM and come with European spec and it will be helpful if you speak Italian to read the manuals. IT WILL BE THE MOTOROLA V3i/V3x MAIN competitor and it can give them a run for their money!!
Ha ha..I am not very sure..Maybe I'm not the aesthetic sensitive kind of person but there is just so much difference between the two ESPECIALLY on the insides...From what I can see this phone is much thinner and with tons more feature. I am not so sure what makes this phone a rip off of v3 especially there is a rotating camera located on the center and this is a 3G handset. Designs are very sensitive issue and each person's view differs from one to another. You are right in your posts but only to yourself and not everybody agrees with you. These phones are so thin because they have the ability to manufacture it and not any other thing else. Like you said, it is only aesthetics and it will not stop others from buying this phone. So why comment that it is a rip off in the first place?
well if you dont think the actual aesthetic designs of the d500/600 look remarkably like the siemans sl55 of three years ago and that this phone doesnt look like a v3 then i advise you to look again. who said anything about nokia? lol.
