worst phone, its all opposite what u read and what u actually get..
This is regareding the call records, the phone doesnt displays 30 of dialled, missed and recieved but it only displays 20 of each.
It is mentioned that ringtone is 16 but there is only 7 rintones, 30 dialled calls, 30 recieved calls, 30 missed calls, but there is only 20, why this cheating with customer, no detailed information in user guide , user guide is really useless.
user manual is not proper, it must be in detail, no good service from samsung, it must be improve
c170 battery is not so good, hw to use calculator in this phone can any one explain me coz there is no option of "equal to" in calculator.
Braj, 29 May 2008i bought the mobile today itself... the hying that bothers me is the display goes blank after ... more
There is nothing wrong with your cell.
They made it that way to save battery.
My dad's N73 and HTC TyTN do exactly the same.
My SE z610i shows abs nothing on the cover, only activates the screen when I touch a side key.
My best friend has a C170 and the screen goes blank, too.
It is the way they make mobiles nowadays...
i bought the mobile today itself... the hying that bothers me is the display goes blank after the keypad gets locked... the cell doesn't switch off but nothing is visible on the display... to activate the display I have to again press a key... the display then appears for few seconds and then it again goes blank...
is it a problem with all the C170 or anyhting is wrong with my cell...
First and foremost this is a BASIC phone. It is geared to people that primarily uses their cell phone for short messagging (SMS) or calling. However, this phone comes with a quality FM Radio and WAP. WAP is like phone internet, it allows you to check the weather and read the latest news. WHO IS THIS PHONE SUITABLE FOR? If you are a high school student or generally someone that wants a no frill phone on the basis of basic level comunication. You have to give SAMSUNG full points for delivering a highly pleasant looking cell phone.
Aesththically pleasant. Not the slimmest phone around but indeed quite slim.Its figure will indeed attract attention. Be prepared to be asked- Can I have a look at your phone please?
Budget: While it is locked to a Prepaid service (OPTUS)this phone cost only $79 Australian dollars.
Easy to use key pad: I am a SPEED TYPER when comes to SMS so in my case I am able to type with ease and at my usual speed. The key pad materials are of reasonable quality.
Easy to use FORMAT: Motorola F3 only lasted two hours with me before I find a bin and discarded it. It is NOT a user friendly phone. C170 is poles apart. Easier to use like Nokia. All you have to do is to scroll down to the requeted menu for your needs.
Easy to READ and WRITE? Absolutely a pleasure. Words appeared to be reasonably large and numbers appeared in multi colours. Worthwhile meantioning is that numbers apears LARGE.
Sounds and Chimes: Basic but I like it. I promise you WILL not hide and cringe from embarrasement if someone happens to call you in a crowd! Polyphonic tones. Ring and message tones are loud and clear. RADIO is of good quality however there is no loudspeaker so you will have to use a earpiece.
Acceptable screen resolution- NOT overly pixellised but it's clear.
Wallpaper leaves little to be desired for.
NO MMS capability. (could be carrier dependent)
No Shortcut button. Everything is done via the long and proper way!
I am a guy that is well verse with cell phone trends and technology. I own a NOKIA E50 and a Sony K750i so for me to invest in a BASIC phone like the SAMSUNG C170 is a long shout but HONESTLY I did not regret it one bit. In FACT for a $79 Pre paid phone comes with a currency converter, I am blown over. So on the scale of everything I give it 10/10 (1= Find the BIN and 10= Made in HEAVEN) People might disagree with my generosity but bear in mind this is a CHEAP and BASIC phone so judge fairly and accordingly.

If you keep a white shirt in the open for a week and not wear or soil it, even then it will become dirty and you will have to wash it again. Likewise, the world lacks in universities to teach hatred and anger, still both are found aplenty in the mass.
You are quite a lucky (wise) guy for having virtues like satisfaction, thankfulness, peace. And it means only one thing, you have successfully saved your soul from the contagion of GREED outbreak. Feel gifted.
Keep up your love for both GSMArena and C-170. As it so happens to be that wise people think alike. Isn't it so? Will soon write to you.

I bought the Black C170 a fortnight back and have been very satisfied. Though the manual was not very helpful, I have learnt all the function thanks to Hindustani's tips and excellent advice. Once again, thankyou Hindustani.
