At what rate?

I have a habit from the old phone to enter the menu with this type of a button... :((
The vibration is low...it must be in your pocket to recognize the call, if it is in your handbag you'll miss it...
Hi.. I live on a game farm in South Africa --- when will this phone - which appears to be IDEAL for our lifestyle-- be available in SA?
Please if anyone knows, let me know as since NOkia stopped their dust/rain/drop/splash proof phone we battle. many thanks
This phone does *not* have a camera flash. It has a flashlight at the top of the phone, but this is seperate to the camera and doesn't affect the camera in any way (mainly because it's facing the wrong way!)

I got this phone 3 days ago..
PRO: its real..its indestructible!i went to the sea with the phone always with me (even if in the manual thers written that sealed water its not ok) and i went underwater at 4 meters for about 1 minute.. also i've thrown it in the sand, and i placed it to the sun rays for about 5 hours.. in the evening i simply washed it and...like a new phone ! everything works perfectly!
something more in deeply..also java works fine,there are games preinstalled...you can customize the pad with shortcuts to your fav applications.. camera also works good, max res 1280x1024.Radio HAS NOT rds, its a common fm radio BUT you can record what you are listening, very useful ! the device also hav a voice recorder, a timer and a stopwatch.. bluetooth works good and samsung new pc studio works great with it.Quadband phone.. it has a torchlight (a led) with a dedicated key.. speakers quality is very good.
Battery life its good i've charged it 1 time in 3 days of medium-high usage
CONS: i've found just one bad thing with this phone...the central key in the joypad cannot be re-assigned..and when you press it the wap browser will show up.. i hate this !
for any other question write me !
Just got one (in the moment is charging for the first time)
In real life it looks more beautiful, but I think that using it on daily basis the red paint will peel itself...I had MP3 player with the same material feel, so I say from experience....
Love this phone, have 1with o2 and its amazing......will not get damaged in any situation and i use mine daily heavy duty!!
would recomend to any builders, plasterers, carpenters etc(plumbers also)
awesome tough fone.. brilliant battery life looks great absolutely best fone i.ve ever had cos am a builder and usually fones only last a week this one is so tough but nice and slim
Anyone else can comment on battery life? Id like to know how many days one can get with very little texting+very little phoning?
Melker63, 07 May 2009"Why do you need GPS on a phone to make it a true "adventure" phone?" I have to agree. The ... more I support your opinions/points,about cell phone industry in general- and i`m looking forward to get my hands on the xplorer! I fiddled about with the 2700,but it was kind of a turnoff-toooo much bells an`whistles. The xplorer makes a whole lot more sense to me. Only problem now: how in darlings name do i wear out my 2,two ! Nokia 5140`s ?? ;)
had this phone a week now and it seems like a good phone.you can change the message tones unlike some samsunngs.ringtones are fairly loud and battery life lasted me 3 days but i was hammering it with all the functions.you should get about a week under normal use.screen is good and the 1.3 camera isnt that bad.texting is easy and call quality is excellent.all in all a good phone for your money.
