in the mobile samsung-c170,you say that there is no games at all!!!but the information shows that there are games allready stored in it..then what does your statement mean!!!!!!!!!!!!
this handset is good for its price.very cheap.. the best bit is its slim and fits neat and nicely in your pocket. thank you samsung for your cool cheap thin phone :)
I got this phone few weeks back. It is a basic/ compact stylish phone. I find the buttons have bit of extra resistance when you try to press them. I don't find the menu system that bad, when you get used to it, its ok. Other than that I really like it
dear decp, as a nok user you ARE quite habituated to charging your phone every night and also mid-conversation switch-offs as if the phone revolts to be a phone and prefers more to be a over-priced cabir-prone jack-of-all-trades that can-do-all-but-won't-do-any. that's what the nok users say these days, i.e, they prefer and pretend to be happy with the brand rather than the much deserved performance for what the price was paid. please DO regret the purchase of C-170 because "regret" is the only thing that suits the flashy nok users.
btw: before any swift angry retort, try to "learn" what a cabir-prone phone is.
guys hello. i saw this phone and liked it though I am a nokia user i wanted a 2nd phone for my job, though its slim and stylish i cant get my batter to hold not even half a day and i dont use it. does anybody know if there is any feature enabled on the phone that eats up my battery? i have taken this phone twice in the shop and they keep telling me its ok, but i cant have even the battery life that says on the phones specs, can anybody help? if yes pls email me firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks any help / idea is appreciated xxx
Guess what? Samsung has disabled the software list for SGH-C170. Better late than never. People there are in serious need for an "apt" SQA personnel like Hindustani. After all, they've got both of my mail-id and cell # :) LOL :) No taunts. Just an open-heart joke.
Hi! great phone like i said before!! --my Motorola C261 refuses to get the network inside a car but C170 gets connections everywhere on the same network, loud and clear!!!Thanks Samsung!
Thank you for your answer Hindustani.
Of course it's humane to make errors. I can't get your link working, which means that I can't read the answer of FAQ Nr. 15 as you refers to. But even though it's humane to fail it is also common sense to correct the errors you make and I can't understand why Samsung hasn't removed the software programs from their webside regarding the C170. Because if you don't correct a known error it can't no longer be excused as a humane error, then we are talking about misleading the custormers.
Anyway I still miss a well-ordered manual to phone in stead of the lousy manual there comes with the phone. When other mobile producers can make it, it should also be possible to Samsung to do.
Dear Mikael & other SAM enthusiasts,
Probably we all acknowledge a very old saying, "To err is humane." The same thing goes for SGH-C 170 software listings.
On one hand, there are 4 packages listed as supporting software. On the other hand the Answer Centre FAQ No.15 says C-170 doesn't support PC-connections.
SAM tech-support personnel personally satisfied my dilemma -- officially, of course.
How can it be that software can be downloaded to your computer from Samsungs officiel website if it isn't possible to use with the phone?
You can see it right here:
I tried to download it and install it on my computer and the programs seems to work as it should. But how to connect computer and the mobile phone is uncleared to me. It seems like one of the programs make a modem that should be used but I don't know how to make it work.
SGH-C 170 is beyond modding. So FORGET PC-link cable-kit and FORGET software and quit the nag. Period.
Probably that's why it is one of the most favored phones with top level government employees who work in a fool-proof and full-proof environment that includes "classified materials".
I've just got this phone but I find it pretty hard to configure it because of the lousy manual there comes with the phone.
I would like to know if it's possible to have the phone ringing and vibrating at the same time? And is it possible to make the phone completly silence so it won't ring or vibrate?
Neither is there any information about the software you can download and how to connect the mobil phone with the computer so you can transfer from the computer to the phone or the other way around.
If anybody can answer some of my questions or tell me where I can find the answer to my question I will be very happy.
Can anyone please inform me how can use the speaker phone facility of the phone?? ?No were in user manual it is mentioned. I bought this primarily for speaker phone
Please be extremely careful while using *# commands. Or else, as an average user you might end up with a malfunctioning device.
Just don't experiment with a finely "lubed" smoothly working phone. It's a phone for crying out loud. Not a lab-animal. PLEASE.
I bought it 2 months ago. So far it works great! I really like this phone. It is kind of basic one but it has everything what is necessary. 3h of talking is far enough for me. Stand by time is about 5 days with 30-60 min of talking time. The problem might be in uploading pictures and mids to the phone - u need to create own wap site to download ring tones and pictures u want. What is bad? For sure quality of the polyphony and lack of programmable numeric keys. There are also some limitations in customization but I can bare it all for about 70$ price in Poland with 2 years of warranty.
