If you own the Samsung i600...

I got one last week and love it for the basics - phone, notes, tasks, calendar - it works great.

I also have the i600 and use it both for business and personal. I was also tired of carrying a phone and a PDA around all the time. I also have been trying various programs and just ordered a bigger SD card for it.

I've noticed a few people commenting about not being able to check more than 1 E-Mail account.

I purchased Sunnysoft Mail Center and am very happy with it. I am using it with 2 POP3 accounts and have not had any problems. I wish I could have it automatically check every X minutes, but at least for now I can check them.

I'm also running Code Wallet Pro, IA Album, Agile Messenger, Video Poker, PocketTV, and Mine Sweeper. Still looking for other games!

Just got my i600. It's my first PDA phone and I'm fairly impressed.

Cons:

Battery life is pretty bad on the standard battery

Much mentioned callerID bugs

Pros:

VZW coverage is far superior to any other provider if you travel a lot

Form factor and general usability is good

I have access to an i600 with the 2003 update installed. Once I get some time with it I will post details on what to expect when the upgrade is available.

I just got one a couple days ago, really enjoying it. I have a 128 SD card in it. I sync with my exchange server automatically. I'm very happy with it.

I got mine a week ago. I had the Motorola T720 and was displeased with it. I find the i600 to be a better phone in every way. The sound is louder (a big complaint I had with the T720), feels more solid, etc. I didn't think I'd like the keyboard but now I do. It's taking some time to get used to the changes but every day I find something new that I like. I like Verizon so the combination of Verizon plus the i600 are fine by me.

Next challenge is getting my corporate email on the thing. Once I do that, I'll be very happy.

I have had one for 2 weeks now. I went from a Cingulat 7160 and an old Palm ti the i600. I synch with home and work PCs. Love the basic phone and how it interacts with my contact list. Keeps my schedule but would like more flexibility in the Reminder notifications. VERY frustrated by not being able to send email through SMS without sending To: 6245 w/ email address in the Subject line. Also am waiting to see if/when SP 2003 will be offered and how many of the bugs will be fixed, e.g. the callerID issue.

No special software, though just received a hands-free adapter that was built for the i700 (and the Kyocera 7135) that allows me to listen to music on regular headphones (or, using a cassette adapter, through my car stereo) and answer a call should it come through. I would like a music application that allows one to make playlists.

In addition to the headphone adapter I have a 512 SD card and just bought a 256 card. I use these to play music and to transfer home-made wave files to my phone as rings (like the intro to Procol Harum's "Shine on Brightly").I have had one for 2 weeks now.

I also love my i600. I've just about retired my iPaq 3600. I love having all 1500 contacts for work & my calendar at the touch of a button.

I would like a better case that stays on when you open it. I like bodyglove's products, but nothing for the i600.

Any suggestions for a case would be appreciated.

I purchased my I600 when it first became available in NYS and thus far am loving it. Unfortunatley it still does not solve my quest for an all in one device :lol: and I'm still lugging around a PPC (Ipaq 4150 which I'm also very fond of). This is primarily due to the many engineering PPC apps I use, for which there are no SP versions available. The lack of notes syncronization is also bothersome, and I'm waiting for smartphonenotes to be made available/compatible with this phone.

I600 Accessories & Software:

Verizon leather case

Sync Cable

Auto Charger

CodeWallet Pro

Resco System Tools

Developer Power Tasks

Not much of a gamer but I'll have to try out the PAC man game someone mentioned previously.

I have and use an i600. I love the phone and hate the holster. Don't want to mess with melting the Motorola i90 holster. I hope Samsung hears its customers' complaints.

I have had the i600 since 11/17/03 and the only problem I have is the Caller ID (which I fixed with the Samsung patch) yesterday. It now works fine with only a number showing on the outside display (600 contact with an average of 3 numbers each).

I love this phone as is but would like to see how much better it is with smartphone 2003. I have many apps which have installed fine. I would like to see a better case or holster option available.

All in all it is the best personal device I have owned to date.

I got the i600, I've had it for about 3 or 4 Months.

I love it other than the times it acts likes Windows! I never thought I'd have to reboot my phone when it didn't work!

I like it more and more as each thing gets updated and works correctly!

I have used the i600 since march 2004, love it so far. Like the simple games. the sync to Outlook is Kick A... Did have to hard reboot and it sync all the data back up. did not save the speed dials.

:idea: I have loaded Smartphone notes, Jeyo Personalizer, Pocket MiniGolf, and Kevtris. Would love to know when they will sync MS Money with the Smartphone software. Hell the have it for Pocket PC, can't be that hard.

the $44 per month is kind of steep for just using for email, the web stuff is just to slow right now.

Have had the phone for about 6 months now. Have a 512MB card, loaded (and unloaded) a variety of software. Kept ALL-backup, Explorer 2003, Orneta calculator and Intelligolf.

Do email updates by using phone minutes without any additional fees. Seems to work and it is a lot cheaper than $44/month.

Am looking forward to SP2003.

Just got my i600 here in the "Nation's Capitol" and am now proceeding to get "smart". I am a long time Palm user (5 different units including the original "Pilot") and when my 6035 died a firey and spectacular death I decided to give the MS Smartphone platform a try. I only hope that I haven't made a $500 mistake...

I feel fortunate that I have a unit that is reporting the existence of a WK05 ROM and thus far have had no bugs to speak of although I am only just now moving forward with loading 3rd Party apps so we'll see how that goes...

At this point my App list is going to look something like this:

All-backup

Spacemaker lite

Resco Mobile Pack

-System Toys

-Explorer

-Photoviewer

eWallet

Power Tasks

Power Calendar

Multiplay 2002

Listpro

Lextionary

All-Calculator lite

Smartphone Notes

Smart DB Viewer

Echo VoiceRecorder

and a few games...

Video Poker SP

Video Blackjack SP

Snails

Cannons

FightHard

Rocket Elite Gold

Reversi

and the jury is still out on a MP3 Player so if anyone has suggestions in that category I am all ears...

I have a couple SD Cards to put my "crap" on 2, 512mb Lexar Highspeeds and 2, 128mb PNYs and I think I am going to invest in a 1gb card in the coming weeks.

Anyway that's my story and I'm stick'n to it...

-GH :roll:

I have an i600 and love it too, can't wait for the 2003 upgrade, though. Would also like Bluetooth, but no need for another digital camera. Am getting an SD card tomorrow, then will get PocketTV installed.
