Hi, I got this phone yes2day and have read your commments about getting a ''dongle'' to download mp3's. What would anyone recommend: The dongle or a data cable?
Also, I am on contract with this phone and was wondering, is there any way you can check how many free txts and messages you have left?
Thanks for your help.

Does anyone know where i can get a ring tone that just rings !!! I miss the Nokia ring tone cuz it was good and loud and sounded like a telephone .. I have trouble hearing a tune rungtone when im out and about and would just love a ringing tone again .. Thanks !!

Terri ... I bought a ' dongle' from ebay and it works well.. Just put dongle into the ebay search and also the samsung e530 and it should find some for you if they are avaliable. I paid just over 8 i think and that included delivery. I have downloaded everything using this. Mp3s straight from Kazaa and also pics from web pages . All you do is save anything you want into a shared file in the bluetooth dongle....

Mindy, you can apparently bring back the external clock display by pressing the volume decrease key; you can also recall the Missed Calls screen on the external display in this fashion. This should hold true for the newer Samsung clamshell phones too. Maybe someone can try it to see if this works?

Hi... i wanted to ask a few questions before i buy this cuuute phone!!!
1. when someone calls me, does his/her picture come up on the EXTERNAL display?
2. is the picture quality good?

Adriana, the Samsung E530 is not Him, it is a Girl ha ha ha

  • kat

To Adiana: i have the same issue. this is because you have the samsung e530C model phone which doesn't supply the extra 'women' features.

  • Adriana

I just buy this phone and he don't have the Women;s life in his menu like it should be.Can someone tell me why?

  • Mindy

Hi . The peeps who are asking if the clock can be made to stay on the front , the answer is absolutely NO . I have written to Samsung asking about this myself and the answer i got was that it isnt a feature of the phone . When i told them they were guilty of false advertising ( as every pic of the phone i saw showed the clock on the front !) they told me that because it is not listed in the manual they are not guilty of false advertisin , pfffft ! I have to say one the deciding facts in buying this phone was the clock , so now im miffed ! So .. send a letter to samsung , ask them about the clock , hound them ! tell them they are falsly advertising it !

  • PLEASE help

  • phil h

im male" as this is more featured for a women "and its great.the whole set up ,the quality and everything is gorgeous,limited memory but so is the complaints generous battery life and the colours make it more of an individual phone,im not telling wich colour i bought who cares!!!

  • Andreea

Could someone please tell me if this gorgeous phone permits y to define MP3 songs as ringtones??Thanks

  • Wen

Does anyone know if there is a way of donloading ringtones or MP3's to use for text or MM alerts? Other than this I have no complaints, the phone is very cool and sleek looking and is very easy to use coming from a Nokia-only background.

  • Karen
