i want to buy this phone. I have one query. Is there is a torch(flashlight) in this handset.
i had this phone for only 2weeks and while using it, it just went off.. the battery is fine bt i cnt seem to turn it on.. help?
How about switching from one sim to another, is it done by just pressing a key or do u have to reset the phone for that??? Is it actually dual sim dual stand by or???
Guys is want to buy this phone but i want to know that whether this phone supports smiley faces in text message option or not???pls reply me guys..
It's a very good phone. I bought it myself. The camera is good but the quality won't be noticed if you view the pictures on your phone itself. You have to transfer it to another phone or the computer to see the real quality of the pictures because the phone can't display as good as the real quality. The video is also good, with digital zooming; unlimited video recording time too.
The java system is good too. Facebook mobile works fast. Go to menu>applications>java>java network> choose the sim you would be using to access the internet, activate it, or view profile to set your networks internet profile. It is important to do so first in order for the Facebook mobile to access the net. Java games support is supperb as long as it's 128x160 dimensions. The only thing is that you won't save your games if you use the memory card as the installation directory of your games. You must install the .jar on the phone's 3mb internal memory. Well that's not really a turn-off since I don't really think you'd have tons of games on this simple phone. Besides, you can always choose the memory card to install games which don't require saving. Opera mobile is the best feature on this phone - fast and sleek. It also has twitter mobile and myfriends (friendster and hi5 already installed):D
The keys are very easy to press and typing is also fast.
Messages are in conversation modes (or you can choose not too) which displays messages as it would have been on yahoomessenger or facebook chat. The intelligent typing system is good too as it displays words as you type. Only problem is that you can't add your own words.
The dual sim support is superb - haven't had any problems on the signal so far.
The FM radio can store up to 50 channels/stations, it has an average reception, and you are able to autosearch for stations.
You can also do almost everything on your phonebook - store the name, address, birthday (you also get reminders on the calendar), email add, phone, home number, office, and image of the person (using the camera or from memory card).
You get to choose from five profiles, general, meeting, outdoor, indoor, silence. You can customize each but you can't rename or add another profile.
Video support downloaded from the internet or computer sucks though. It's hard to convert movies to this phone. I tried converting my movies to any basic 3gp or mp4 format yet the phone is having a hard time reading them. It plays videos taken from the camera though. Maybe it only supports that. I need help on this one.
Fake call is cool. :)
Bluetooth's fine. So is WAP.
Music player is awesome. :)
Key shortcuts to almost any function is nice (just press the number for some time while on the menu to access the shortcut you set). XD
Overall, it's an excellent phone at its price range.:)
Opera mini works greak and very fast. It is a little tricky to activate it though. Go to settings -> wap -> select sim card and select your sim card for data connections. Then create the profile by going to settings -> wap -> edit profile(select the sim card) and activate your profile or create a new one as I did in my case. I own the dual sim one and I am very satisfied. Good reception, good battery and the ability to use facebook, twiter, hi5, email and simple web browsing is a huge plus for a cheap mobile.
