when i got the phone it didn't have that continuos message thing where you can see the messages before. like the iphone. how do you get that on there?
also where is the QWERTY practice application on the phone and does downloading opera mini and EDGE really help the browser speed?
I got this phone for 1 week.
- Good battery coverage, up to 3 days on intensive usage. Looks like it has a good consumption control.
- Opera Mini 4.2 does not recognize the qwerty keyboard.
- Opera Mini 5 works like a charm (very good)
- Nice music player, quite intelligent, with auto-power-off and background playing.
- good camera for those 2 MegaPixels.
- intelligent bluetooth transfers: a mix of music + documents + other files, all together > the phone puts each type of file in different folders (it recognizes - for examples, music files will be placed in the Music folder, images in the Pictures/Images folder, etc).
- the phone is responding very fast to commands (typing text/numbers).
What are the minuses:
- cannot create themes, unlike other primitive S/B samsung series :(
- no 3G or Wi-Fi si you are limited to basically text messages. the EDGE works fine with Opera Mini 5, but not fast enough.
- crappy resolution.
- does not recognize flash content (ffs!) and some .gif files (dynamic images).
Personally, i`m satisfied with this samsung phone because it is doing very good what he was built for: writing messages.
It has got JAVA MIDP 2.0, so it'll support Opera Mini 5.
Sounds good on the landscape 2.2 inches screen.
The only problem is the resolution : 220x176.
the_dinesh, 13 Dec 2009220x176 dat really sux man n only 256colors dat even sux man, my ratings for dis phone is 1 n ... moreThats very fair
I would give it 1 & half/10.
But this really is not a fully featured phone.
Its just a downright entry level phone with QWERTY keyboard Blackberry-like.
Its target audience is completely different, though I don't know what it is.
this is a budget phone.its only rs 6500 in calicut (india)
it does not have the flash value of e 71.but consider the price it is nice
220x176 dat really sux man n only 256colors dat even sux man, my ratings for dis phone is 1 n half/5.

Anonymous, 12 Dec 2009its 176 x 144 broany source which says so???
Hala Madrid, 10 Dec 2009guys can anyone tell me the actual screen resolution of the screen......gsmarena says its 176 ... more176x144 pixel display seems extremely unlikely.
The screen must be 220x176.
Interestringly, the official site (for India) http://in.samsungmobile.com/mobile-phones/samsung-corby-txt-specification
states the display to be LQCIF
QCIF is 176 × 144
LQCIF is not recognised even by wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Intermediate_Format
But this is not good, are we in 1990s. It should have at least been QVGA.
guys can anyone tell me the actual screen resolution of the screen......gsmarena says its 176 X 144 but samsung official website says its 220 X 176 pixels. anybody can confirm!!! one more thing what is the max resolution of the videos that this phone supports????
