OK, after struggling for 2 weeks, I was able to get this monstrosity working (apart form Bluetooth). I even managed to install a satnav software that actually works on Galaxy. Battery life is 12 hours! My Nokia has a battery life of 9 days without push e-mail and 4 days with push email turned on. I really don't understand what the Donut upgrade brought, apart from constant crashes. If Samsung doesn't provide an Android 2.1 or 2.2 upgrade, that's it for me. Why doesn't Android have a beta label? God I miss the god old Symbian.
The worst phone I ever had. slow, unreliable. Terrible OS, terrible bluetooth support, camera software was created by imbecils, processes constantly crash. Looks like a half-finished product. Not only I'll never buy Samsung again, I'll never buy Android again. It's a typical Google's work in progress.
dont buy this if you dont want to be stuck on 1.5 forever and ever and ever and ever

Basic android firmware 1.5 squized in a bulky and ugly phone....i'm using this phone for 5 days and it's battery life is so poor..don't mention the features and capabilities.....NOT RECOMMENTED!
Guys who are waiting for the update, checkout the following link:
Read it carefully, and update your phone to 2.1 GAOSP%
after buying within 4 months only its speakers are not working and even its bluetooh is also not able to connect to other devices.. bad i shelled out 15000 rupees for a mobile where I am not able to use its basic functions too
Ok the phone is not what i thought...you cant check text while on the phone talking, thats not very smart is it...if someone send me a picture I cant save it to my pictures..I had lots of phones and I can save pictures ppl send me and I can check text while on the phone talking...the battery life is terrible...before you buy a phone check the reviews and what it cant and can do first.

They don't care about anything. I've also had to wait for about an hour before they attended to my complaint and then I realized they were just wasting my time. For me it was an mp3 player and they told me to come back after 2 months!!! I never did. NEVER go to Samsung Service center, BTM.
I can't get my WiFi to work whatever I do. Anyone out there with a solution?

For my galaxy my battery is giving only 6 hours
back up....I went to service centre bangalore , BTM one ....They don know anything there ...they only tell
you to wait......After making me wait for like hours they told that they ll replace the battery and told me to come in 10 days as they don have stock ...And so i went after a week or so...the manager called up n checked and told battery has come and i have to wait in queue for my turn to come..so i got the queue token and waited and waited maybe for 5 hours or so ....The service is very very slow ....Worst service ........And then when my turn came the person is saying they don have stock and i have to come again after a weeks time ... So now i have decided i l sell this phone at a very cheap rate ..
The moral is that Samsung as a company does not want to cover warranty service as they have promised
and so they keep postponding until your warranty expires ....
Samsung is a worst company ...i ll never buy samsung ...... so many people are there in samsung service centre as their product are not up to mark ...
I want the new Android update for I7500!!! We're still using the 1.6 version
never buy samsung galaxy I7500 in India, you never know when they are going to get the firmware update. Even the customer service guys don't know when samsung is going to bring the firmware update.
Samsung is still stuck with 1.5 where Google is talking about Froyo. Why to buy a new technology with a company who is not sure when they will be able to provide the firmware update.
