How is the sound also from the mp.3 playback?

If you are having battery problems and you do not need it's 3G feature then go to settings > network and choose GSM 900/1800 instead of UMTS,it will make it last longer.Once i got 5 days of battery,when i used the crap out of it,very many pictures and a lot of videos.Quite the paradox,i usually use it light and i get about 2 days of bat life

i think i got a weird fone then, coz normally with heaps of use my battery lasts day n half, but with hardly any use i can get 3-4 days out of it.

  • Anonymous

the battery only last about 5-6 hours...
That is the bad thing about it.
The good thing about it is a good and small useful phone

i sold this phone to my partner because i thought it was good but it is total crap. The battery doesn't even last a day. It was sent to the samsung repairers and came back and said it was fixed but still doesn't last a day.

Geez ppl. Read the rest of the opinions before asking stuff. 90% of these recent questions have already been answered. It's not that much effort to go read a few pages back. Come on, sheesh. I quote from the posting rules:

To everyone with blank pics problem - lock your "real" pics or move them to another folder. Then if it takes blank photos you can simply choose to delete all photos and only the unlocked ones (i.e. blank ones) will be deleted all at once.

Now my problem: someone mentioned the site for dowloadins skins. So I did, but not one file has the *.thm extension. There's a readme.txt with no useful info, 4 *.bin and 2 *.cnt files. What do I have to do get the theme onto my cell?

This one has battery problem and always drain very fast. Everyday I have to charge twice. The Internal camera is also not so good.The Media player cannot play the songs continuously. Once u use bluetooth, the battery drains so fast.

  • mich

i`ve had this phone for a month now (and it was second hand when i brought it) i dont understand all the problems people are having... i only charge my phone every 3 to 4 days. i dont seem to take endless photos of my pocket as you need to press and hold the camera key down for quite a while before it takes a photo.All the features are great, although i must admit i dont use the 3g mode at all.The photo quality is great and the alarm is loud and reliable, although the calender function is a little confussing, what with scheldule, memo,reminder etc. All in all a excellent phone, glad i bought it, wouldnt be without it. can someone please tell me how i can AUTOMATICALLY save ALL text`s to the phone instead of sim.. must be having a blonde moment..soz, and thanks
