It's nice to have this phone Radio Sound is amazing it's like Home Theater. Very Slick.
Just got this phone today. The first thing I noticed is that the call quality is much better than it was on my old phone (Moto V60). Very little noise, interference, loss of signal, etc. This phone seems to be able to maintain a good connection under conditions where normally I had problems. I would definitely recommend this phone, especially considering the price.
My only complaint would be the lack of a regular phone ringtone. The preprogrammed ringtones are a little cheezy.
PJ, 11 Aug 2007How about the sound quality on call? (Cause with my samsung x160 it's not that good :-s)sound output of fm is amazing, just like home theatre, but battery back up is not so good
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2007to those who have this already, how is the battery? tnx.i m also confused regarding battery , i m using this phone but i m not satisied with battery back up, i have charge battery twice a day? is this problem only in my handset?
What is the sms capacity of the phone? what is the how is the battery llife... seems short. overall reliability and ability to handle rough treatment?
(1)Slik,easy to handle.
(2)Basic functions targeting the "no frill" users.
(3)Very good sound quality.
(4)FM reception is very good.
(5)Good value for money.
its a useless phone. reception is poor. u cant really use wap browser.no pc support changing of battery is difficult. sim card aoften get loosened.call maturity is poor
except slim nothing
bought 2 days back n i m loving it. It is very sleek n smart , if any user want simple phone then take my words just " go for it "
Just forgot to mention ... C170 uses unfortunatly the Samsung standard menu system, which is about the worst on the market. A simple task like reading and deleting an SMS involves the use of most buttons and menus in the phone. However - this is not too pronaunced on the C170 compared with the higher end phones with more features and options. Despite this draw down, compared with the slim, light and nice phone, its still a winner and recommendable.
SAMSUNG - MAKE A NEW MENU SYSTEM FOR YOUR PHONES PLEASE !
Baught this phone two weeks ago. Finaly a one-stop phone. Very nice design and very slim. If you dont need MP3 player and gaming then this phone is perfect. Was in a dark room the other day without light, the C170 backligt lit the room just like that.
Slim with vey nice design and build quality
Backlight can work as a lamp
No bulshit easy operating
Speakers loud and clear
Clock text in calendar wallpaper very small
Alerts take a bit too long to dissapear
Time from keypad unlock to operational a bit too long

Group SMS is not available. But sending SMS is not that tough. Whenever I need to... morehi hindustani,
hav bought the cell, for me its a ok or good phone, like what more can u expect at this price. atleast they are giving a slim phone.
i wanted to ask u somthng abt the ph book of this cell. well u see multiple entries are possible that i know, but how are the nos. sorted in this ph. Like if i enter 4 diff. nos., how can i keep the no. i use most at the top, for eg. in nokia u hav the default no. option. i tried in many ways but all get jumbled. its that the order of nos. is ok when i feed, but gets reset whenever i restart the ph.

:: SMS ::
Group SMS is not available. But sending SMS is not that tough. Whenever I need to send an SMS to multiple recipients -- on very rare occasions -- I perform a tiny "circus". I use the SOS Message feature.
Menu > 5. Messages > 6. SOS Messages > 1. Sending Options > 1. Sending SOS > 1. On
Menu > 5. Messages > 6. SOS Messages > 1. Sending Options > 2. Recipients > only 5 entries
Menu > 5. Messages > 6. SOS Messages > 1. Sending Options > 3. Repeat > 1. 1 Time
But first of all, get the total concept and technique from the following menu.
Menu > 5. Messages > 6. SOS Messages > 1. Sending Options > 5. SOS Help
The SOS Message Recipients can easily be altered by adding saved phonebook entries. Restricted to 5 total recipients. Works like a charm for me. Albeit, I am noway a heavy-duty SMSer.
:: Caller Group ::
This piece does support caller group functions.
Phonebook > 4. Edit Group >
1. Call Ring Tone ( a total of 7 tones )
2. SMS Tone ( total 8 tones. here Off, Vibration, Single Beep are not available )
3. Graphic ( total 10 graphics )
4. Group Name ( total 10 caller groups )
Dear Rahul, hope I could satisfy your queries. But now, you need to annihilate a doubt of mine. Shah Rukh Khan uses (promotes) Nokia and so I thought all Rahuls (SRK fans) too use Nok. Your being interested in C170 strikes as an utterly strange phenomenon. Say it isn't so? LOL :)) PEACE !
Hindustani, 14 May 2008Dear Madan,
If you keep a white shirt in the open for a week and not wear or soil it, even ... moreto Hindustani,
