I've been using a C200 for 6 months. recently, some problems appeared in its firmwarre. It locks the keypad while I'm talking, therefore I must unlock it to terminate the call! It prints wrong person's name from the bookphone sometimes when I receive calls which really annoys me. example after unlocking the keypad, you must wait 3 second for a "Keypad Active" message to appear and go away.

It prints wrong person's name from the bookphone sometimes when I receive calls which really annoys me. It lacks mp3 file format support. You can not upload sound or image files greater than 30..40 Kbytes, althogh you have plenty of free memory! If you configure a todo list to alarm you, you wo'nt be able to cancel it! The ringtone speaker is weak and you can not hear it in a noisy street. After doing any operation you must wait for some alert windows to appear and disappear. For example after unlocking the keypad, you must wait 3 second for a "Keypad Active" message to appear and go away.
I use Samsung C200 as a GPRS modem mainly to browse the internet on my Laptop.
For this i purchased a serial data cable for Rs.900/- (Unfortunately no USB data cables where available with the samsung dealer) which plugs into the COM port of a PC. My Laptop had no COM ports but only 3 USB port. As a solution to this problem i purchased serial to USB convertor cable for Rs.700/-(BAFO)which essentially fools ur Laptop into believing that one of its USB ports is infact a COM port and Hey PRESTO..it worked!!
Only disadvantage of this phone is that u cant charge the phone and browse the net at the same time. Continous downloading can be done for about 5hrs and then the batteries die...but for ordinary browsing the charge should last for 10hrs. Speeds range from 48-56kbps which is excellent. By the way,i use Airtel GPRS(excellent network). Further details email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Handset is nice. The design is good and some features as well. But i was not able to connect it to the PC, earlier i has X430 - Samsung. So i used the same data cable for this but i was able to connect to the PC.
It is value for money. I bought it today for Rs.3350.
mobile is good except that it is used to switch off automatically,also having low incoming voice(u can't here sounds in a public place).my question is that is it recoverable???????????
I have a Serial Data cable, I can transfer the Image and Polyphonic Ringtones through the Samsung PC Studio II Software but how can I transfer Games to this phone, ususally these games are available in the Net with jad extension so how can I transfer these file into my phone, is there any other software availble for it.
Just purchased this phone. Very light weight,cute and good. Colors are dynamic. Good loaded stuff. though it had a few drawbacks like incresing ringtone, can't change the type of number after it is stored and vibration starts even before the ringing starts, little hard and crampy selection keys and most noticeably no profiles and color themes, Screen savers.
But inspite of all these it is a
1) Low priced 64K color phone
2) Very light weight
3) Good looking shape and keypad
4) Very dynamic screen colors
5) Large sized fonts (very nice feature)
6) Competetively priced
7) Good manual
8) value for money
9) Preloaded MMS settings for various operators
10) Nice preloaded animated wallpapers
If u want value for money a definite go for it. It is very competetively priced here in India at around Rs. 3500 or may be even less. Other brands except LG even don't have a 64K color phone at this range.
Worth buying it if u are on a tight budget and looking for moderate features in a 64K color phone.
I feel its was really a good decision to select as its very lightweight and has solid body.
its a gr8 fone, been using it fer more than a year now, no probs..the probs told abt CallerID etc r NETWORK BASED..battery etc are also working fine for me, cute small..n lightweight set.. gr8 buy for the price..n attractive also!
I see only complains about this phone...I guess we all know them if we have it.So...anybody knows if there some way we can improve it...somehow???
It's a good telephone, but unfoutunately I have the same problem like my colegues: the increasing ringtone for an incoming call. So i guess it's samsung problem. It's not up to us.....A lil dissapointed too
Sometimes when i receive incoming calls the identification number apears completely wrong. I am very disapointed about it.

Hello!! I have the same problem about increasing ringtones volume. When the phone receive a call, the ring´s volume start a little low and increasing after few seconds. It´s a problem? I´m a little disappointed.
hi... the c200 is really nice phone I have one and i guess it had a really bumpy ride since i have it... but it's still working great... buh-bye
I have a Sony J5 but it is getting old
so I bought a C200 but it's far more weak
and the J5 is a 5 year model!!
-it takes ages to unblock the keypad
-it does not have light with key pad locked
-the calendar has room only for 30 events
-you have to switch off everytime the T9
-it has few special signs
-it stores the numbers under one name and events in random order
Its too good..Sleek,slim..smart and HOTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..Perfect for your lady love...Get it or Lose it
