The Battery is very disappointing. Standby time as is claimed is not at all achievable. You will get ur battery totally out within 35-40 hrs., even if u dont use it at all(real standby!!!).

Please do not go for this handset. It has a serious bug with regard to Repeat Calender Alarm. The alarm rings only once but not for subsequent repeats. Samsung is attempting to hide this bug from users. This bug will be exposed in all possible manners so that Samsung is forced to withdraw C5212, D780 & other handsets having this serious bug causing great inconvenience to users.
I use this phone since three weeks, but I couldn't find a way to figure out the firmware version. Could anyone help? THX

To do a Full Reset remove both SIM cards and switch on the phone. You'll be asked to "Insert SIM". Enter the following Full-Reset Code:
*2767*3855# (the 3855 will not be shown in the display). This Full-Reset deletes all data from your phone (better save all data before you do the Full-Reset, SAMSUNG will take no responsibility for the FULL-Reset). On my phone it worked and I can use both SIM now.

This phone has a major bug with regard to Repeat Calender Alarm. The mobile rings / vibrates only for the first time but fails to ring / vibrate for subsequent repeats. Samsung is unable to rectify the bug till date.
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2009Is this phone capable of dual active sims? i mean you dont need to restart the phone to swicth... moreYes, the two SIMs are active without restart. Before dialing a number you simply switch from one SIM the other SIM. But: Users report issues that second SIM will not be recognized "initialising SIM" (happens to my phone as well). So far Samsung is not offering any support in getting this issue solved. Beside this major issue (why buying a dual SIM phone when it only works reliable with one SIM) the C5212 is a nice phone.

It simply refuses in 90% of the cases to work with 2 SIM cards. Sometimes it works, mostly not. That's not acceptable as the dual SIM was the only reason I bougth this phone. Others have made the same experience and report that Samsung is showing no interest in solving the issue. I'll return the phone.
This phone has a bug with regard to the Calender feature when set to Repeat. The mobile rings only for the first time but fails to ring / vibrate for subsequent alarms. Please do not go for the phone if you are a frequent user of Repeat Calender alarms. Samsung service centre is unable to fix this problem till date. Even D780 has this problem.
