d500 phone covers/fascias/housing

Hey all. I was wondering if anybody had bought a D500 phone cover for their phone? I've looked on Ebay and they sell loads, but when iv asked a few people if I should buy one, they have all said no because you have to break some sort of ribbon underneath the origional phone cover to put the new one on...or something like that anyway? Shocked Anybody got any advice? would appreciate it if anybody could help Smile Cheers x

I'm planning to buy this phone and I wanted to clear some things out before I actually do so. I'm really hoping that my questions will be answered because I am just dying to get this phone! Also considering how experts some of you guys are, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get some good answers and clarifications.

1. I've never bought a phone that has not been offered to the US yet so I'm not quite familiar with how I'm supposed to make the phone work. So my question is, how would I make it work with US phone companies? Do I just give it to customer care and will they do it for me? Also, do I have to pay an additional price to the customer care for making it work?

2. What phone company does this phone work with the best?

I know that ...

Samsung freezing problem

Hi there, I've previously owned 2 Samsung phones which I haven't liked because they tend to freeze up during use, especially thru menu navigation or while texting. I'm trying to decide between this phone or the Sony Ericsson W600i. Has anyone had problems with the phone freezing during heavy usage? Both of my previous Samsungs also froze up while calling out and I had to remove the battery and reinstall before I could make a call. Has this happened to anyone? FYI I'm on the cingular network in washington state. Just curious before I drop $300. Thanks!

Hey guys and gals, need some help here

I've had this phone for 6 months and love it, but I recently recieved the whole movie "Friday" from my co-worker. He has a Motorola V360 and he bluetoothed it to me. He had a friend who converted it and put it on his phone.

NOW FOR THE PROB: I cant delete the file! When I choose "Delete", it says not available. I've reset the phone, tried everything. I had two other 3GP files (which is what Friday is) that erased fine. I tried "delete all", it said deleted, but the file was still there, with a differant symbol for it (now it looks like a movie camera)

As much as I love "Friday", I want to put other files I've downloaded, like Simpsons episodes, BUT I CANT!!!

Any help would be much appreciate...

Need some help with Samsung D500!


I actually have a few questions:

1. Does anyone know how to activate the Quiet Mode for the phone...there's a setting for it under Sound Settings that let's you set it to mute or vibrate, but I don't know how to use it.

2. Does anyone know how to set up the e-mail for Cingular service in the US?

3. What is the standby time supposed to be for the battery? I only get a little over a day and that's without using the phone. It's so crappy! Is anyone else having this problem? Am I charging my battery wrong, or am I supposed to charge it longer? I charge the battery for about 90 minutes - that's when the phone says that the battery is fully charged.

If anyone could answer any of these questions, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

will this phone work well in the US?

I currently am a subscriber to Cingular and I'm not sure if this phone has proven itself in the US.

If I ordered this phone unlocked, would it be as simple as exchanging my SIM card to this phone to get it working?
