pls would like to know which data equipment to use for the infrared port?if it is laptop then the phone should have come with a CD containing the software
I love this phone, but I couldnt find a datacable for this set to download ringtones and images, any help ?? I know about irda but I really need the data cable for flashing etc too.
I think this phone is quite good. Have it for over a month and i just cant get enough of it. Good screen (65K, though a little small), 40 poly tones( Great Sound) and I like the Vib/Led feature, Its quite light and feels good to hold, GPRS, IR ( can download ringtones and animation without a data cable using Easy GPRS). In all a Good Phone at a Good Price. Highly recommended.
This phone represents great value for money. Got mine from Virgin for £99, with £35 inclusive airtime, free European return flight, and a box of chocolates - what more could you want! It's very light, with a simple to follow menu structure, great screen, class polyphonic ringtones, and everyone who sees it, loves it. The reception quality is very good, and I can only imagine that the people complaining here are die-hard Nokia sheep, who have yet to pass puberty. At the end of the day, If you want a quality, functional phone, it's the nuts. I couldn't care less for a Mickey Mouse camera/MMS, and if I was to be extremely fussy, I suppose I could wish that the battery life was a bit longer, and that the predictive text allowed you to add to the dictionary - but hey, what do you expect for £99!
i bought samsung C-100 6 days ago.the cell is superb good reception but sligtly lower than nokia so as to minimise the problem caused by harmful radiation, idownloaded ringtones,wallpapers ets its superb
Go guys get it now
Its a nice phone with unique features. I like its slimness & portability & also the silver colour. I bought one of recent. I am really enjoying it.
Jeezuz, I can't believe some of these so-called reviews. Who's gonna pay any attention to idiots who spell "could" as "cud" and slam it for not having a camera when it's so cheap? What have you guys been smoking? This is a great little phone that dhas all the main features that most people need when they get past pubety. It's slim' light and sleek with great ringtone quality and a very impressive high resolution screen that despite being small is the same resolution as bigger screens on much more expensive cameras (I also own a GX10i, Sagem MyX-6 and others).
Battery life is pretty average for a colour screen, there are better but there are worse, and look how small the thing is to begin with. Being a Lithium Ion Polymer battery (rare at this price) it has no memory so you can charge every day if you like without any problems.
I suggest some of these Nokia huging smack heads should get an education and find something worthwhile to say. Ignore the pile of steaming BS here and check one out for yourself!
This is the my perfect experiment in a short duration. i went market in hurry and purchase C100 and believe me this is really great..you all will love it. so, hurry and choose it as your best gift. i am happy with it..bye
i like the phone. is good
battery life poor
u cannot see colour whenlight shines on it though
otha than that gud fone
Buyer: Wat da hell is dat?
Seller: This is a silver shit from Samsung, mam!
Buyer: Samsung stop coppying from Motorola on her flip phones, didn't she?
Seller: No mam, She trying to copy from another manufactures, you'll see
the phone is good its just that as all samsung phones the reception quality is very poor and they rewally need to look to improve the quality of this area.
i dont know y, but the otha remaining problem is the battery life of the phone.
it only lasts a few days at a time and once u play a agame u cannot possibly expect to find a good supply of battery.
overall, similar to A800, just got no flip and has colour screen. all same features etc.
It's a great phone I guess. I am looking forward to buy one. Can anyone please advise me with the features and the display.
The features are cool, but why they create those features if we can't use them. MMS, sending data via irDa, camera optional, why this phone don't care about those features above??? with your 65K colors it's too bad you can't do things above...But I always believe samsung!!! For this type of phone I would give 7/10.
Believe it or not... After 3 months of flawless work this phone just DIED. Just switched itself off... and thats it. If you press ON button, LED flashes yellow 2-3 times, screen goes gray and switches itself off in a few seconds. No charger, no battery replacement helped. I feel like crying now, I have no idea what could have happened - I treated the phone with extreme care, never dropped it and never let any water onto/into it. I left it for RMA at the service and now I am just sitting and waiting. I am very confused what could I do if this "sudden death" happens again after my warranty expires. I am really confused :-( Why you did it, Samsung? I trusted you...A very nice phone .. excellent looks ... good features at a small price ... this is how I would rate this phone ... the ring tones are excellent; all of them, every tone better than the other, I have seen SE T310 but its ringtones are not loud enough as compared to C100 which have poly tones with loud volume. This phone is light weight, can use gprs also ... also you can use datacable to put images and ring tones to it from your pc. Although I have not tried this but this is what I have heard and this is what their help file says. Some features are however missing like sending ringontes, sending mms (we can always receive mms on this phone), composer is missing .... overall at this price I woul give this phone 9/10. Samsung well done.
Wow, I've bought it yesterday! It is great, exactly what I need and want. just a few issues:
1\ User Menu - you can choose just from a list of items, not o use any item of all the menu as T39
2\Why is backlight 2 colours? Blue display and orange keyboard - it is terrible. I bought Ice Blue because of that everything's blue.
3\ Why is not possible to use the volume tab during typing to scroll thru the letters, like in case of T39?
I have the phone for a month I noticed many reception problems tha calls does not complete normally sudden turn off happens slow sms view display is good in the dard outdoor view is almost impossible battery is moderate I think buying this phone after nokia 6310 is a real mistake nokia 6000 series are the best for a professional ericsson tried hard but still long way to go

rite...this will be long but here we go.
sony erricson make better fones full stop.
samsung dont really have any experience in makin fones do they. luk, all there fones are either flip and most have an areal, and wen they dont, like this one the reception is poor. i mean come on, areals are like so last century ;p
as for this fone, here are the bad points in my opinion:
bad battery life...i mean if ya gonna make it so slim at least get a new type of battery that will work with it
cannot recieve pics or forward them?!?
whats the point?
keypad could do with a change...samsung ten to keep them the same on every single model...agen, why?!?!
the screen is actaully very small which agen questions the point of a color screen...why?!?!?!?
no camera or camera attachment
now, as for the good points:
its a fone that little kids cud afford and cud say that they have a colour screen :P
the wall papers and animations as u scroll thru the menu are quite good
the color quality of the actual fone is good..tho, the point is...
it is very light
nice and slim
gud that it has infra red
ring tones are just OK
and there u have it. i think that if u want a fone packed with the latest techno then DONT GET THIS FONE! it will suit the younger market i think.
in my opinion i thin that a sony erricson or even nokia fone wud be better,tho sony erricson is the way...trust!
i think that u shud wait for the new year wen models will come out and then u will be in there
look up the sony erricson t360...looks amazin and i think will be well worth the wait, thanks 4 readin
