lavender pink is purple while valentine pink is pink.

If u are in SG and signing up with Singtel, it's cheaper to buy it @ planet where u can bargain.

Screens writing is not that big. The screen is good quality but the writing is quite small.

I've had this phone for 3 days now and on the first day things started to go wrong. It's a fabulous phone and I love it, but when I record things on the voice recorder it's really quiet and one of the network bars on the cover screen is missing. Was just wondering how many people are having these problems too.

  • annie

why is this model also known as Samsung SGH-E568 on other sites?? so which model is it really?

  • Ann

How big is the screen compared to a nokia 610i... I need glasses i think so is the writing a good size?

Hi there this is for anyone with problems for sending video messages. There is a special size/pixel setting for MMS. Before taking video:

1) select the folder on the left of screen and goto to settings (6).

2) Change the first option [recording mode - video] to 'limit for message'

3) You will have the choice of a couple of quality (res.) settings.

Now if you shoot your video you can send it and not get the message 'unsupported media' hope this helps.

For people uploading mp3/ringtones from the computer. Becareful to select the right place to upload stuff to in the phone. For example if uploading MP3's - select the music folder not sounds or it won't work. I use studio II Pim & File Manager and have no problem sending ringtones/music. Works fine.

Hope this is useful...

Hi all
Read a few probs with the dongle and mp3s. I had trouble when i got the dongle at 1st. My daughters phone downloaded perfectly from it . My samsung would disconnect the download after about 5 secs, most annoying. What i did was this and it works ( tho a little long winded). I open the bluetooth aplication and get the computer to access the mobiles files ( as if i was going to download pics id taken with it) then i can recieve the mp3s and anything else from the comp. Also i had to make sure that i 'share all' the pics to download . Go into your photo's and click options. select ' share for bluetooth' and select the ' share all' option . That will allow all pics etc to be downloaded. I am not that good with technology but i tend to find a way round a problem by any means . This worked for me and the bluetooth i bought but it may not work for yours . Good luck
