Has anybody experienced self switching off of the phone? Because that's what happened to me last night. And when i tried to switch it on again it didn't work at all/the switch on button didn't respond/. I had to remove the battery for a couple of seconds and put it back.Then i successfully managed to switch it on.
If this happens again i think i'll make use of my warranty.
Any suggestions if this is either software or hardware issue?

I noticed that when i enter *#0228# (that's the battery info code) on my B5702 the info displayed is:
... and what bothers me the most is that "battery unknown" heading. When i look the battery it is labeled SAMSUNG and the main voltages and currents are indicated as well and of course 'made in china'. But what's picking my thoughts is why the B5702 software does not recognize the battery as SAMSUNG and instead 'unknown battery' title is shown when you enter *#0228# code. Is there a posibility to have bought a non-genuine battery with my phone?
How many of you have B5702 'made in china' instead of some other country(south korea for example)?
You can see the 'made in' country when you remove the back lid and the battery.
Thanks for your answer, Andrea!
At least you're not getting scared when you're lost in thoughts and somebody's trying to call you due to that quiet ringing in the very beginning :)

I've just bought my b5702 phone and i'm very happy with it.
I noticed that when i'm receiving an incoming call(no matter on which SIM the incoming call is being received) the ringer melody plays very quietly the first 1/2 of the second and after that it reaches its normal volume(it doesn't matter whether i choose 'melody', 'increasing melody', 'vibration then increasing melody' etc. option from the ringer menu).
For example if i choose 'increasing melody' and i'm receiving a call the ringer melody starts very quietly and after a 1/2 sec its volume jumps on a much higher level and after that it slowly continues to increase until it reaches its highest level(i hope you understand what i mean).
It's not a big deal but i was wondering if it's normal on your B5702 phones or i should take it to the service.
thanks for your answers.

- open a new sms message
- press the button on the right side of the phone to change the sim that you are using. The icon on the top left part of the display (indicating what sim you are using) will properly change.
Instead if you press the same button while not writing anything (for instance when only viewing your background image) then the phone will change the default sim rebooting. But rebooting is not necessary to change the sim you are using to write sms or make a call.. I do it several times per day with no effort!

You can't choose which SIM to send the message from - you have to pick the default SIM first, which requires a reboot first. Personally this is the worst aspect of this phone, as even flimsy chinese ones seem to be able to handle this kind of thing with ease.

2. Mine says "Made by Samsung" under the battery.
3. it should use GPRS for the internet, but my contract doesn't have this enabled at the moment.
4. No idea, not tried yet.
Never used the D890, although I'm not keen on touchscreens, so that partly why i chose this model instead.

You can change the font size of both the SMS and phone numbers when dialling (not sure about the contacts list - I can't find where to change that), and you can create long SMSs. My display reckons I can send 1836 characters, but that might be limited by my telco, I have never tried to send more than about 300 chars.

I have some questions regarding Samsung B5702:
1. Does it have Answering Machine? How should we set it on?
2. Is it "Made in Korea" or just "Made by Samsung"?
3. How its Internet works? Can one read feeds on its default set or he should install some programs to read feeds?
4. Can one install some players to just play more Video and Audio formats like MP4 and AVI?
In your opinion which one works better Samsung D980 or B5702?
Thanks a lot
