In brief: Overall unwell
On top of feeling thirsty and urinating a lot, you may also feel very tired, and have blurry vision.
Diabetes is easily diagnosed with simple bloodwork, so if you have the above symptoms, or think you are at risk (have family member with diabetes, or bmi >25), just ask your pcp.

In brief: UsuallyNoneforYears
Type i often sudden, type ii dm commonly progresses slowly for decades without symptoms, is missed by docs, though artery disease & other problems also progress more rapidly.
Symptoms finally occur: slow unusual feelings & loss of feelings in legs, kidney failure, blindness, combined with sudden loss of blood supply to body (heart attack, stroke, peripheral artery disease); ulcers, gangrene, etc.

Historically, Diabetes literally refers to urinating a lot, the symptom by which it was usually recognized. But these symptoms rarely occur with Diabetes Mellitus until blood sugar concentrations are extremely high, over 300% of healthy levels. Thus the symptoms, to which the term Diabetes refers to, do not occur until after the disease process is very severe. All the other answers refer to this severe advanced disease state.

In brief: Wt. loss, freq urine
The classic symptoms are frequent urination, increased thirst, increased appetite with no weight gain and often weight loss.
In addition you can get blurred vision, in women frequent vaginal infections. Slow healing infections etc. It is important to know that many people have no definite symptoms at first so it is important to be checked for diabetes regularly if you are at high risk for it.
