Arrived in Australia and my 2 sims (from other countries) were working fine until I inserted the Australian Optus sim card. It rebooted then this line appeared: "/a/operator/idle_optus.ifg". Now no matter what sim card I put in, this message will appear after SIM Initialising, then the phone will reboot itself again (in circle). I tried system reset by typing in *2767*2878# but did not help or change the situation. Can someone help please.
I have a clarification..is this a Dual Active or Dual Standby phone? I've been reading mixed reviews. Some say both sims can be active at the same time, others say you have to switch and reboot from one sim to another...Can someone enlightenme please? thank you.
whats the latest firmware version for this phone? is there anyway to update the phone ourselves?
i'm having trouble sending sms to a contact in the phonebook with multiple entries. instead i have to go to the specific contact in the phonebook and choose the number i want to send to and choose send message from there.
im very interested to this unit. however, i have one sim for globe and the other is the new pldt wireless landline. does anyone know if my pldt wireless would work in this unit?
ei! tahnx fadz! i'm definitely buying it then. it's really cheap at ebay now, and they have bundled it with a 2gb mem card. thanx again!
triband is an issue in america. this phone only has triband on 1 sim and dual band on the 2nd sim so only the primary sim works in america. also, triband 1900 only? based on my past experience with triband cellphones, its great outdoors but indoors u get no signal. thats why u need the 850 band. im with at/t btw, which uses 850,1900. t-mobile only uses 1900 but their coverage across the US is less than at/t. so yes quadband is better than triband in USA.
This phone is truly a Dual Standby phone in Asia (particularly in the Philippines) where it works fine. However, in the USA, only 1 sim works at a time. If you want to use the sim, you have to set it as primary and reboot to use the other one. Then do the same procedure to go back to your first sim. this is annoying and not sure why it does this - its not a true dual standby phone if in some countries it works and some countries it doesnt (and USA should be included in Triband so its not a triband issue)
It's a great cellphone, but there's only one foul tha it's crucial to use it here in Brazil, it's not quad-band cellphone, as the second largest operator works unlockeds cells in quadband , i don't know why....but...only using the first ones it's not a big advantage..samsung should work on that.
I have a D880 and it works just fine. While I would like a version that has more features, this will have to do in the mean time. The only problem is synchronizing the phone book with my PC. Has anyone been able to figure out how to do this? I am starting to think that "Samsung" had a manufacturing problem and are keeping quiet to see if we do the same....!
to onyot: this phone is set up perfectly for the pinoys. I've been using this phone for about 3 months now, and no problem with my 2 sims smart and globe. One sim is for primary, and the other sim is for receiving calls and messages. To place a call, use your primary sim. Philippines is using 2 bands; 900mhz and 1800mhz. I believe the d880 has triband(900, 1800, & 1900mhz) on one sim slot and dual band(900 & 1800mhz) on the other sim slot. So, either sim slot is okay to operate in the Philippines.
To all Samsung D880 users,
The problem with Samsung is the manual because it has no specefic details on how to operate the unit. Allow me to give light on some major issues:
1. Changing Primary Sim:
a.) Call - go to phonebook & check mark the number to dial. Press the small buttom at the left side of the phone to ship from Sim 1 to Sim 2 without rebooting the phone.
(b.) Text Mesage - write your text message. To send the message follow the same instruction in letter (a)
(c.) To view the content of memory card - got My Files and hold the # key and the memory will shift from Phone to Memory Card.
Samsung D880 is a very nice phone but you have to exert extra effort to discover some of its useful features not disclosed in the manual.
i'm from the philippines
and i'm planning to buy this phone
so i can use one sim slot for my smart sim
and the other for my rogers in canada.
what doyou think guys?
can i use this phone in canada?
will both sims be active there?
ei peeps! anybody here from the philippines?
i'm planning to buy this phone, 1 line for my globe number, the other for my sun, hehehe for obvious reasons. anybody here ever tried that kind of set up? it says on the specs page that the 2nd line is only for dual band of something like that, but i'm not too sure what kind of bands we have in the philippines. so, if anyone here has tried using it with globe/smart with a sun sim, please post your comments. i'm not really into the camera and stuff like that, i just want 1 phone with my 2 sims, so it's easier to carry. thanx!
Has any one found the solution to Sync the Contacts from PC to D880?
I'm still not able (MS Outlook 2003 and last version of PC Studio).
THANKS VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE!
i just got my samsung d880 after a long evaluation of reviews comparing it with china dual sim phones. well, i chose this because of the brand and it has service center in our country in contrast to the competition which are disposable! after 2 days with no functional problems, i highly recommend this phone for people who carry 2 phones! For basic functional needs and reliability get this phone! Im waiting for a 3G dual sim from Samsung!
its me again found some games on it but they are all trail need to crack them
