It sounds like your phone has USB debugging enabled. What this means is that instead of a USB mass storage device which the OS has generic device drivers for, your phone will be detected as an Android device and thus you are prompted to provide drivers (Android Debug Bridge).

To disable USB debugging on the GT-S5830:

Settings -> Applications -> Development
Make sure USB debugging is not checked.

After that, connecting the phone to the PC with the cable should not cause any prompts on the PC, but should display the USB connection on the phone in the top left corner. Touch the USB connection status icon and pull it down, then tap on "USB connected" to open the USB Mass Storage" screen. Tap "Connect storage to PC" and then "OK", to make your phone storage available on your PC.

I bought about 4yrs ago and its working absolutely fine.
No problem has been noticed in this phone till now.
At that time i got it for 10000.
So i prefer that instead of this phone u can get many other good phones with better specifications.
Ultimately,its your choice....

Looking for answer. A friend has this phone, last week everything disappeared from it. It will turn on, gives the logo but goes no further. Does anyone know what has happened.

Roughly two years ago I bought one of these used, in mint condition, for $50 (Canadian). Today the same model, in the same condition, goes for $40 (Canadian) at the same shop. This would mean that it is currently worth roughly 26.80 euros, or a little under half of the 55 euro price posted by Anonymous.

Options for this phone are extremely limited by its age and hardware specs. Primary upgrades I would recommend are adding a microSD card to increase storage capacity, and purchasing a higher capacity battery (2000 mAh or more). Shell type cases can be difficult to find depending on location, but pouch type cases to fit it can be found almost anywhere. It is also important to note that some apps require a newer version of the Android OS, so this phone may not be a viable choice in some cases.

For light phone and texting usage, it does fine. For moderate to heavy phone and texting usage, look for a newer (2013 or later) phone.

As a backup camera, it does fine. For higher quality photos, look for a newer (2013 or later) phone, or get a camera.

As a web browser, it will get the job done if you are in a pinch, but you will find the larger and higher resolution screens on newer phones to be vastly better.

All that having been said, the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is still an excellent phone for travelers and/or emergency use. The (currently) low cost makes it almost disposable, yet it offers the basics of phone/texting/email along with the capability to play music/videos and run numerous apps. Mine is used mainly as a portable GPS (maps stored on micro SD), but it also sees use as a media player, wifi phone (SIP), and emergency cel phone.

My advice, at least go one better. Like the Ace plus or Ace 2. They have room for apps, and while obviously it will not be a speed devils, they are more usable even if you have a few more apps. Do have a good look at whether Whatsapp is still supported though, if you find that important.

Other than that, I cannot tell you of 55 is a good price.
