i fell in love with this from from the moment i saw it. But what i would like for someone to tell me is what all comes with the phone when its purchases. Example, headset, charger, phone case etc.
My phone does the same it also keeps on saying awaiting better gps accuracy can any one help without comments?? (I560)
I have this phone for 4 days now, and have read all the comments on this site.
First of all, I'm in south africa, so no WiFi is not really a drawback at this moment as very few places here actually use WiFi (Mostly only found in Major Cities).
The GPS does take long, but if you really want to have a lightning fast GPS, then buy a Stand Alone GPS, not a phone. And yes, using the GPS will drain your battery, thats why the Car Charger comes in the package.
The only complaint I have is that I would like some more flexibility in folder management. The ability lock certain files and folders (maybe even applications) would have been a real plus.
I have this phone for 4 days nw. It navigates well bt it says gps off. N the voice commands only work 4 the 1st 2 turns, thereafter u gt 2 navigate manualy. Im nt sure whether its a gud phone or nt. I just wish i knew hw 2 turn da gps on!!!

I myself work in the Phone industry for the past 11 months in australia. I personally own this phone and i think it is excellent, and my phone does support a-gps. As navigators go, the i560 is better than most navigator phones. Nokia 6110s are pathetic, their software is useless and is one of our most sent back phones for repair we sell. not to mention they come with 3rd quarter 2006 maps, the i560 has 3rd quarter '07 maps. I do realise the samsung has the same symbian software as the nokias, just theirs seem to be a little more reliable than the nokias.
did you know that if you look in the mirror you will see your self isnt that amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MissA, 02 Jul 2008I just got the phone and i am loving it!!! one problem is my gps software was on my micro sd, ... moreI was also puzzled about the "awaiting better gps accuracy" message. it works well when you are outdoors.

hoey, 18 Jun 2008well first you need to have a map program installed into your mirco sd, through a card reader ... moresounds like a lot of messing around when other products work straight out of the box.
Got My N95 8gb and i have had no problems getting it going or getting it swapped over.
Thanks for your advice. It wont help me much now but I think other people will appreciate it.
slinkywc, 17 Jun 2008o.k then tell me exactly how you got the gps to work without any messing around. Thank youwell first you need to have a map program installed into your mirco sd, through a card reader not on the phone. then the first time you use it you need to put the pin in and give it some time to start but its worth it at the end. tip on using the gps on the phone you need to turn your phone off and on again when you finish so it does not drain the batteries, because the gps doesn't turn it self off.
