this phone is a total wreck. The interface is crap and samsung's os til now isn't user friendly. I don't really if the one i got has some issues but the lag and sensitivity of the screen is very very annoying.
does this phone have a built in answering machine like most samsung phones?
I really need the PC suite for this phone.... If anyone could post the link it would be a great help!

I'm crazy bout this hand esp. the camera but it has a number of bugs which drive me crazy the other way. The camera freezes and the phone shuts down when u select panoramic pics of more than 3 frames. If you've used the video camera function and immediately want to switch back to photo's you mostly have to switch it off and restart because it wont save pictures again. The browser often tells u that a website is too large and won't load properly which doesn't happen on the Nokia. As much as I like it i wont be buying Samsung again in a hurry as these are the exact same irritating bugs i had on my U700. I also prefer the touchscreen on my old LG Cooki(K500 i think?) Sound quality is good but volume is pathetic compared to normal Nokia's and even the LG. I've installed opera mini but cant get it to work and I cant uninstall the default browser. I would appreciate help as this might save me from getting a new phone...
One plus side of the phone is its solid & sturdy design. Dropped it 3 times already, once it bounced 3 times from the top of the stairs at my house, but only the battery cover came off, not a scratch on the body. Sure you have to charge the phone everyday and texting is a bit annoying, but any phone that survive falls unscratch is a keeper to me :)
Hello, I've only had my phone for a few days and still learning to use it. I'm getting a little frustrated with the predictive text when send messages. Is there somewhere I can go to get more information on how to use the predictive text features and shortcuts. For example, I want to know how I can select the suggested word that comes up before I have finished typing the word without having to type the whole thing out or having to selected it. On my old phone I just need to press the space bar and the word is used automatically. When I use the space bar it just puts in a space after the letters that i have typed and does not insert the word. Also, is there a way to add/modify what's contained in the dictionary. I can't seem to type the words "I'm" or "I'd". I'd also like to get rid of the word "On't" which comes up instead of "Not". Thanks. :o)
well i have had the phone for 3months now...gud bt just realised the battery life is very short..i have to keep charging it every night...am enjoying the gadget anyhow!
Nikola, 10 Dec 2009This is the worst phone I have ever had. For every one good feature it has like 10 bad ones. ... moreHate it?? then ZIP IT. although you're trying to let us know what you feel.. could you just SHUT UP because apparently others here(including me) say that it's THE BEST PHONE THEY HAD. YOU HATE IT, WE LOVE IT. I agree with the others.. good phone, bad user. And maybe YOU ARE blind since you can't even praise the 8mp camera. Yah it has minor setbacks.. but please STOP.

Click it then browse the available ones and you'll see that there are a lot of emoticons there. Hope it helps.
miaka, 19 Feb 2010is this fone able to use touch screen while texting? or just using keypad?you can use the screen for texting too.. but only if it's in the slide down or locked position then tap the blank or black screen of your message then it'll appear. It's not not qwerty but it's fine with me! Best phone so far.
