Samsung G600

I've just bought one of these and signed up to a monthly contract with Virgin mobile. Haven't actually seen the phone, but was attracted by the 5megapixel camera and online reviews that I've read.

Does anyone here have one of these models? Have i invested wisely?

This latest purchase and contract means i now get my mobile, broadband, cable tv and home phone all from Virgin (and they're likely to be my mortgage lender shortly if Branson gets his hands on Northern Rock). Should i be worried? :)

but my son - who I asked - says he's about to get one, so he'll also be interested in any response here.

FE you can let your son know that I'm very impressed so far. Very intuitive interface, slim (it's a design icon, apparently), and images from the camera are excellent.

The phone came with a free 1GB MicroSD memory card, free bluetooth headset and I can also choose between either a free iPod Nano, PSP or £100 free credit from Virgin Mobile. Only minor concern is that my fat stubby fingers sometimes struggle when sending text messages. :)

I've never been too interested in mobiles - providing it allows you to make calls and send texts, that's enough for me. However, I'm most impressed with this - I've even dropped it a few times (on hard floors!) and it works/looks as well as when I first bought it.

I love this phone, but how do you get a photo to set as a caller image? Every time I try I get a message that says 'empty entry'. Can anyone advise please? What am I doing wrong

The samsung ringtones are horrible, my girlfriend bluetoothed the 24 ringtone mp3 from her samsung so i could use it. It will play on my g600 but when I try and set it as a ringtone it says "not supported content". Surely if the phone plays an mp3 fine it should be able to be used as a ringtone, does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks

Is it stored on a memory card or phone memory?

It needs to be in phone memory to be used as a ringtone.

PS. start your own threads from now on please!
