AliDs, 13 Apr 2010Almost all mobile will have to have their time and date reset when u remove the battery... so ... moreB2100 is my fifth mobile. I usually change mobiles during 2-3 years. The former four mobiles were all equipped with 2 batteries in order to make things smoothly. In fact, I think 2 batteries are really helpful to me especially in business trip.
I am afraid that none of the four needs to reset the time and date after taking out the battery. That is why I am quite surprised at this new mobile.
Anyway, nothing is perfect. What I can do is just to make it perfect.
The four moibles I used are Panasonic GD85.GD76, SonyErisson K750C, NOKIA 6300.
This is the best phone I have ever bought. I could bring this phone to the beach and talk to my girl while swimming, I also do hiking and mountain climbing so things fall from time to time and this baby can handle everything. Well this is just my opinion but you can see for yourself..

But yes it is a bad idea to get multiple batteries for this phone ... because when u remove the back cover offen the back overs on most phones tend to get loose ... with this phones such a thing would restrict, decrease or even nullify its waterproof capability so its advisable not to buy a 2nd battery unless u travel alot and will be far from the nearest place (car, house, hotel, etc) where u could charge ur phone
how can i sync the unit to my laptop? i want to send bluetooth to my laptop going to the phone vice versa how can i do that?
I got it yesterday with two batteries. When I took the battery out and restarted it, I was told that the time/date needed to be reset. Accoring to the seller, it is OK.
Is it a right thing for this mobile? Is it a Samsung way to keep the good sealing condition for this mobile?
If so, I WILL BE EXTREMELY SORRY TO BUY TWO BATTERIES!!
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2009I just feel Samsung missed out on a new market by leaving out GPS. The only phone that comes c... more43 days standby mode means that it's on standby without touching or minimal use..duh! You disagree with the phone being able to last for almost a month because you said that your phone only lasted for 3 days with minimal use.....SO IT'S STILL MINIMAL USE AND YOU STILL USED IT.....so you are wrong in saying that the phone cannot last for almost a month because when you tested how long it could last, you said THERE WAS STILL MINIMAL USE. STANDBY means not using or touching it even a bit that's why the standby of this phone is long. IT'S impossible for ANY phone to last only three days on standby.

The flashlight/torch feature of this phone is the most important feature which totally complements it's purpose of being an outdoor phone. I never knew id be using the flashlight of this phone more often because it is SUPER POWERFUL, LIKE A REAL HANDHELD FLASHLIGHT. The sound quality is even superb without distortions. I purchased an 8GB micro sd card because i thought that I will be recording a lot of my adventures through the videocamera feature and this will be my final phone because im looking forward to its features. Keypad is not as stiff as they say. Its has that general high-tech feel.
go to settings... then, display and light, then go to keypad light and then change it to any time..... had a problem like that before.. :)
