I'm using this phone for 5 months.


Nice design! 1000 phone book entries,250 Msgs,GSM Triband, good picture & sound quality, mms, gprs + PC Synchronisation & java all good.You can choose all menu options via shortcut number keys,it is the main feature of samsung phones, compared to NOKIA. This sound is not so cute as SonyErricson but more better than average Nokia. No speaker phone, no silent option while ringing an incoming call,but we can reduce the volume while ringing. No enter key option in messaging,This is a very big problem if you want to format your messates. Cannot sent picture messages, but we can send multimedia pictures, ringtones by mms. The internet accessing centre button causes much more difficulty, accidentally finger touches our cash balance will be reduced!. Excluding 1000 entry phone book and 250 for msg, all other memmories are very less. Does not support JPG pictures and 3GP/mp3 ringtones but support MIDI/mod and mmf. Interface is not more user friendly, but neat. only very less options and settings are there. While saving text messages it shows only the phoneNumber/name as identifier.Duration of any Warning/Information message display is very high around 4 or 5 seconds. Mixed call history of recieved/dialled/missed calls while pressing call button is a very good feature. There is no profile that we can choose at a time as in Nokia. In the ringing type there is only Ring,Vibration,Ring + Vibration; there is no " Light only" option. We can save more than one number under a name, can be with different icons; While any incoming call it doesn't show the number and the type icon too, it just display the saved name only, so we can't understand from which phone the call is coming(they should show the Type Icon & number too)-This is the most foolish thing done by samsung. We can use Ringtones for alarms and schedules, but messaging and other alerts have seperate tones for each section, it is too bad I think. We cannot move all of the address in the SIM to Phone and vice versa,which is useful if we shift from one SIM to another or from one phone to another, we have to do it one by one, if 100 numbers we have to do the procudure 100 times! While saving anything it always ask SIM/Phone, it is a cumbersome, This asks the same even if only one choice "Phone" ! Great foolish question! If we save any phone book entry it always ask memory location, this also steals a click and time, Who remembers all the phone memory locations ??!- But this may have another usages that I didn't see. We can make silent by just holding down the # key, it's good. if auto lock key is off, we can lock it by holding down * key, but it ask an unwanted question : "lock Key pad?". There is no Snooze option for Alarms,Ring one time and stops.3 alarms are there Daily/Morning/onetime, it's good. but Morning call has 2 options "monday to friday" & "Monday to saturday", so that we can't use this in sundays! Scheduler is there, we can set a schedule with/without alarms, They intended to provide more easiness by giving option "Copy to" and "Move to" for schedules, but on selecting these options it resets time and asks the time again,wow wow!. While typing message caps lock handling is not so good,The multi language feature handled neatly. In phone book we can create Contact group (max 10), add more phone numbers to this group, we can set ringtone/message tone & graphic logo to a group, it's good, not possible to assign ring tone to each number.


If you like these nice features with lower price and ready to suffer these difficulties, of course you can by this weightless pretty & cute phone . Good luck!
