Oh my God it's brill!! Just getting used to having no keys, but hey that took all of about 30 seconds, definitely better than the LG if you feel you have to get rid of the Soul.

Can someone please explain how to turn off 3G on the phone as i have heard it drains the battery quicker

This is a great phone. Yes the call volume is a little bit low but it's not as bad as others have said. Picture quality is great but not as great as I thought it would be. In bright outdoor light its super but once the light gets a little bit dim you're in trouble. Very grainy and blurry indoors and when dim. If you use the LED flash the flash gives that led blueish light that makes your subject look like a vampire. One trick I have found that will help with the blue flash color is to set the white balance to florescent lighting source that cancels it out a bit. Other phones with better cameras like the Ericsson cybershots and Nokia's are better because they have real flashes BUT they really are chunkier and bigger. Even the N82 is too big for my liking so this phone is it. Don't let the naysayers get you down from getting this phone!

edi, 13 Jun 2008the codes posted here are incorreect to get the volume up the... morehey does that mean that you have to reconfigure the phone every time you turn it off?
Can anyone tell me about battery life when playing music? is it the same as call time (which is rather short)?

Also, can anyone confirm the microSDHC compatibility up to 4G, is 8G possible? Is 4G slow or does the system handle it well?

You mentioned you have managed to change the right soft key with a different code.

May I know how to do that? I am currently stuck with the Gee shortcut and am trying to switch it to contacts. I have called Samsung service centre and was told there is no way to change it.

Please help.
