Just brought Spica for 12.5 k with 4 GB memory, it has 1.5 Cupcake build. Looking for upgrade to 2.1 in Bangalore anyone has information about Samsung Service Center in Bangalore. When i called up service center, guys looked novice and were not aware of this thing.
Guys, does this phone have a firmware update in the Philippines? If yes how?
Please advise me on this.
Should i break the phone after bringing it to india to use it.
I am planning to get an I5700 GSM mobile form USA.
Will it work in India?
I am worried about the bands.It is a Quad band phone.
Abhinav, 09 May 2010Thanks a lot...u hv no clue hw much i hv read n tried to find about this phone....thts hw i hv... more@Abhinav,
I bought this phone couple of months ago! Its worth the money you pay! Theres a blog with user reviews which includes this spica... you may want to visit that...
is the place where u need to go!!!!
I bought this phone yesterday itself in hyderabad,India. It currently have the 1.5 version.
I tried updating it using the New PC Sync studio. And the software keep saying this phone does not support any update.
I want to ask you should I go to the service center and update it or try the odin method? What do you suggest?

so basically....this ph is solely dependent on Android as a USP.......i mst confess...the ph luks cool.....and even though it doesnt hv 5 mp,flash....huge internal memory,FM,multi touch.....bt....all the compromise...resulting into 12k budget seems worth.....i will buy the ph this week fr sure..jst wana confirm abt the price and also abt...packed 2.1 or shal i buy wid 1.6 and upgrade later..........thts d only confusion.....i tried to find....if ny more androids r cuming around this range....wch wil mk me wait fr 1-2 months....bt i dun think ny phone is lined up......apart from expensive ones....so ...i have no other choice then SPica ;)...
any advices....or....shal i become a customer widout thinking again?
Abhinav, 09 May 2010Also...few quest....someone who has used it...will be in beter position to answer...
1)hows... more@ Abhinav...
1)The Camera doesnt do too well in the dark. Though it has a night mode feature, which helps in dimly lit situations.
2)Media Player has regular features but does not have a great library, or media managing interface. Voice/Video quality is great.
3)Image photo viewing is cool, with easy zooming options, thanks to android. Flicking photos and multi touch not supported. I dont know about Jet or any other silly samsung phones which dont hv android.
4)Pdf/office/excel etc documents gets open and edited. U just need to hv good software like 'Documents to Go', easily available on android market.
5)Office email ids can be configured and received through softwares like 'touch down', and many others that hv microsoft exchange support and are freely available in android market. But that is dependent on GPRS service, and not as reliable as blackberry.
6)PC Suite sucks big time. For data transfer pc suite is not required, but U can use it for backing up contacts.
7)Almost all android games are compatible with this phone.
8)No limit to length of video recording. Depends on SD card capacity. Recording quality is average. Recording stored directly to SD.
This is the best phone at this price point, which is around INR 12K, running on a great platform, that Android. And if u use the android browser, u ll b blown away. Its an experience u can have with no other phone at this price. So, go ahead and buy the freakin thing, I rate it AAA.
Also, dont ask any more questions, if u hv doubts..work ur ass off and search for answers on google!!
David...What was crazy,.....I have doubts..and just want the experts/users to solve/guide.....those who r bsy and cant....dont...i have no probs,..

6)how flexibile and easy to use is its software to connect to pc..like PC suite etc?
7)i saw many android games on net...like quake/Need for speed and many ther 3d games...r they compatible with this phone?
8)how is the video recording of the phone.....when watched in PC.....?..is there any limit to the video cliping we record....like...10 mins or...can we keep recording till we have memory?....also...since the internal memory is low...does the photos/video recording etc stored on local ph memory or can be stored on memory card directly....its imp..as if its first on phone..then we need to transfer the clps/photos to memory...wch means....restrictions in the mins of video recording...
