well, i've got it earlier this month of july 2009, and i thought that this is one of the brand new model of samsung and i don't know that it was launched last 2 or 3 yrs. ago. Anyway, i was attracted to its clamshell design, yup... i looked at its specs and i find it really not so glamorous unlike other phones... BUT, i liked its simplicity of making calls and sending sms. As for me, i can send mms to other networks, the vga camera seems clear to me, though i thought it has video either but still it has a camera. I can listen to local fm radios, yup one of my favorites... For me, this phone is for using what it really meant to be. Perhaps if you want a unit that has so many features you buy the modern 2009 models of samsung and not this phone... but i highly recommend it for simple people like me who uses phone as it is..
Great phone For older people
The Numbers on screen are very large and easy for people with eyesight problems to see.
Basic phone but my elderly mother can use it no problems.

Anonymous, 12 Mar 2009yea i did not get any USB either! cheaters!! this fone is quite useless... only thing is it is cute Mobiles are to make calls, they are not playstations or cameras. If you buy a camera and a phone separatedly you will save money.

Please, I bought this model and was not given a usb cord for downloading my photos unto my PC, there is none on sales in my entire country...
How can I download my photos or transfer my pic from the phone.. please confirm if there is a usb plug in cord for this C520 samsung model available in the market...
Thanks Await your reply
I have this phone, I got it for free from Sun Cell. Messages are not saved in the sent items so if you're not looking at the phone directly, you won't know if your message was sent or not. Picture/Video really sucks, won't even bother talking about it. What I like is the panic button at the side, when you press it twice, it sends an emergency message to the numbers you programmed, and when they call while you're on "panic mode", your phone answers it for you and you won't have to open the flip to answer it.
i live here in the philippines, this phone is available through Plan 350 at sun cellular. check the website for details
Hi! I'm from the Philippines. I woould just like to ask how can I transfer the photos i have on my phone, if ever i want it to upload on my computer or have it developed?.. ty.

Good day, i live here in the phil.i entered a plan on Sun mobile so i get this unit C520 for only Php 999.00 for 3 units. But then i found out in your website the specification of C520 has a video. But in our unit C520 don't have video. can you please answer, is there any C520 don't have video? Thank you.
Question.. where else in the Phils do I buy this phone? I inquired in Samsung Megamall and they said they no longer sell this because it's quite an old model.
well, my mum might need to get a new phone after her nokia 3315 (that she has had for about 5.5 years) will be toooo old. In 2006 she got a nokia 2610 and she complained that the phone was not loud enough so she went back to her nokia 3315. i'm wondering if any of you people around the world who go on this site, who HAVE the phone will tell me: is the samsung c520 LOUD enough when you have a call or a txt? because it has been killing her
