I am one of the people who understood the n97 and got it working fine but for the normob it must have been a nightmare.

I have been getting up each morning to miserable alarm via clock >> alarm option..I have sat down this morning and oh my god what have i been missing.Its got one off alarm,weekdays only,mon-fri or weekly.

Then alarm type>>melody,vibration,vibration and melody briefing....This is brilliant ,you can set the volume of alarm,none of my nokias do that.Alarm tone allows the ones by sammsung or go to files and their are my s/e ringtones ive built up over years ie ravi,sc-fi and cosmic.

Then snooze it says 5 minutes 3 times BUT if you tap on it you can customise to 3 minutes snooze,5minutes,10minutes,15 minutes half hour or just 1 reapeat.

Smart alarm sets off the alarm at a set interval before your main alarm goes off.Then their is notes setting so when you wake up you have written reminder on screen.When alarm goes off you have a zzzz icon on one side and big X on other and you drag these icons across screen for what you want to do.

Also there is option to end or start calls using main home button which is a blessing for me.

I 2 have kept my Nokia smartphone non qwerty and don't see any reason 2 get rid of it despite the imminent review & then buying SGSII. So not flying the Nokia flag & seeing SGSI being sold 2 buy SGSII. I am curious 2 find out if U have any regrets now of items sold as in keeping my Nokia I sold a 'newer' S/eric which some do not understand

So the reviews in the other profile sites were made with a final unit.....From my point of view Arena has no excuse in making so many people wait so long!

Does anyone know the wired headphones with remote controls and mic functions working because the headphones coming with this phone does not have remote for Forward, Reverse and Volume Control.

I mostly listen music while riding bike and phone is in the pocket so with out remote i cant stop/play or roeward/reverse or control volume of my songs.

THANX

I'm guessing that most review sites get given a retail sample to review that gets passed from one site to another so there is definitely something not right here. If I were GSM Arena I would send someone on a flight to London all expenses paid for and get them to look in every store for the phone, its hard work and costs money but I'm sure they could afford it easily. I know the phone is difficult to find so I consider myself very lucky indeed to have got one!

I've had this phone a full day now and it is really good. I have noticed no lag or delays in anything I do. The touchwiz 4 is a huge improvement. Browser is excellent and fast on wifi and 3g, the gps gets a lock within ten seconds indoor. The screen is mind blowing and the back cover which everyone keeps going on about is great, fits like a glove doesn't feel cheap and all the people I showed the phone to had no prob with design or being plastic (and most of these ppl have iphone4). the only complaint I have is the battery drained rather fast but being my first android phone I might not have my settings right or it will get better as I condition the battery. Put Green Day Awesome as F*** concert on and it was amazing on the 4.3inch screen. Oh and it does send texts overseas, I read something on here about it not being able to do this from some post, works fine.
