I bought this phone about ywo months gao off a reseller from the US through Amazon.
My verdict: I hate it so much, I have gone back to using my nokia E71 and suffering with one sim card.
These are the phone's pros:
3)Looks and feels good in the hand.
4)Fair video recording.
these are the things that make me wanna smash this phone into a wall:
1)When searching for a contact right out of the contacts shortcut, it will not suggest to you possible contacts as you tyoe in characters. If for example you want to find Dr. Fred. If you type in only "Fred" into the search field,"Dr.Fred" will not show up as one of the possible "FRED's" you are searching for.
Ironically when you try to search for a contact to send a text message through in the messaging shortcut, it will suggest names for you. What kind of crap is this from samsung? It makes searching for contacts through the contacts shortcut short an agony!
2) The phone just keeps switching itself off for no apparent reason. Initially it would actually re-start itself , but in the two weeks before I dumped it, it just kept swithcing itself off on its own accord. Some people have postulated that it could be the way the buttons at the bottom of the face of the phone are designed-they can be easily "long pressed" even just by putting the phone in a tight trouser pocket and hence switching it off. However I have found it off when it previously was on and just lying on the table with a fully charged battery!
3)It doesn't allow for one to assign names to the FM radio stations it has tuned and saved! This means you have to recall the frequency of your favourite radio stations. An un necessary requirement considering technology is meant to make life easier.
4)If after scrolling through all those radio stations it has saved you ended up choosing to listen to the station whose frequency was saved lets say two pages on the list of radio station.If after listening to your station chose to go back to the list of saved stations to choose another one, the interface will atke you back to the list but will display the stations starting from the first one downwards instead of taking you back to the position on the list of the station you last listened to.
5) Surfing using opera mini is such a pain. Its 3G speeds are not 7.2 mbps, its more like 3.6/3,2.....which is pretty slow.
6)The location of the 3.5 mm adaptor is such an inconvenience especially when you want to listen to media files while the phone is in yo pocket. I think the best location of a 3.5mm jack or adaptor is at the top or bottom of any phone. I will not express my disappointment at them not being able to provide an out right 3.5mm jack and instead giving us an adaptor for it.
7)It seams the message alert tones can not be changed to downloaded tones. This means in places where there are many samsung phones, you will be looking at your screen everytime you here a samsung message lert tone beacause you think its your phone going off only to see maybe four or thee other people also staring at their samsung phones!
8) I haven't tried the in built dolphin browser because I think it will be the last nail in the coffin of a phone I was head of heels in love with until I bought it,....now I cannot wait to dispose of it!
I will try the apple iphone 4 next and get it out of the way too. I think am missing something there although I think I might end up getting the sony ericsson xperia pro of nokia e7 just because they have QWERT keyboards.....
As for my two simcard sojourn-its officially at the end of its tether.
MY ADVISE: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. LOOK AT THE REVIEWS ON AMAZON AND YOU'LL REALISE AM NOT BEING BLINDLY BIASED!

MS Presentation (.pptx)
I,m using this phone about 3 month.
1-good battery life time (at least 3 days without charging)
2-Larg Screen and not bad touch Screen.
3-good 5MP Camera
1-web browser is so Bad! really bad!(I installed Opera Mini, now is better and faster connection,but it restart my phone sometimes,I cant download with any version of Opera.when you install Opera the Screen Size get small)
2.(Unbelievable but)my phone doesnt save the Alarm time,Alarm Days and its setting correctly!
3-No call recorder!
4-Kies software is worthless!
5-you cant share internet via Bluetooth!
6- menu and sub menus are complicate!
7-as a phone,the Contact Groups managing is not suitable! you cant set the phone to be Silent for some Contact Groups, means phone profile cant be set for Contact Groups (Like Nokia).
8-you cant set Timed Profile (like Nokia).
9-the Lock key and Auto Lock operation is Bad! Auto Lock feature locks the phone when you are busy with phone, while it should lock in Idle Mode!
Following Feature will welcome
1,One touch call recording.
3,User friendly Application
I bought this phone about a month ago now.
1. Please change or add that this phone has an adaptor for 3.5 mm audio jack.
2. This phone has rebooted a few times without warning. I have not been able to determine what triggers it.
3. I have tried to install Opera Mini but not with any success. I keep getting error that it cannot connect to the internet, but I connect freely with the native Dolphin browser. The problem I have is that it runs out of memory even to render most simple pages. Why does this Dolphin not render like a mobile browser?
4. Everything else so far is super good. I am still discovering new things about the phone since the manual is not elaborate enough.
5. Kies is sooo slow to access the phone memories, whether phone or external memory card.
Any help with any of these from any Samsung guru will be appreciated.

hii friends, i owned this phone since dec.2010. according to my experience pros and cons are as follows
pros-dual sim standby, video calling, dedicated google, twitter and many application short cuts in menu
cons-very poor battery backup (only 20 hrs), cannot go to menu when u r online, no live tv, browsing is too slow, frequent interruption in net connection, common port for charging, usb and headphone(cannot plzy music when charging), low quality plastic body.
in short my verdict is "not reccommended".
