jafar ali, 17 Oct 2009How to record conversation on c 5212 dual sim.You can record incoming/ outcoming phone calls on your C5212 as 60 minutes long AMR files. Just make or receive a phone call then go to "Options" and select Option # 8 which is "Conv. Record". You can pause/ resume the recording during the process.
Purnendu Bagchi, 15 Oct 2009Hi, I have already installed the K D Player version in my PC and transferred to mobile through... moreHi, there is no need for PC studio software if you want to transfer files from PC to mobile (internal or external memory). Just use "Mass storage" setting of your mobile. You will see two removable drives on "My Computer" section in Windows PC.
To install JAVA games on your C5212, you just need to place JAR and JAD files in the SAME folder of your mobile ( Other files folder of internal memory or in the memory card). Then select JAD file and select "Options/ Install". This will start the installation process.
After installation, select KD Player then goto "Options/ Permission". Now adjust these settings as follows:
Under "Automatic start", select "Ask once per use"
Under "Network access", select "Ask once per use"
Under "Messaging", select "Ask every time"
Under "Connectivity", select "Ask once per use"
Under "Read user data", select "Always allowed"
Under "Write user data", select "Always allowed"
Under "Media Recording", select "Always allowed"
Start the KD Player application. Go to "Menu/ Playlist" then again select "Menu/ Add files". Now you can see all folders of phone memory and memory card. Go to memory card folder and go to Music or Videos folders (you can also play MP4 video files through KD Player). Select "Menu/ add all" then select "Back" and select other music or video files present on other folders. Then select "Menu/ Done". Wait till you see all files of current playlist. Goto "Menu/ Save playlist" and select the folder where to save your current playlist and enter any name to save it. Select any file and press "OK" center key to play it. You can add all your audio and video files of memory cards in a single playlist. But still there is no option to play fullscreen videos in KD Player although C5212 can easily play fullscreen videos in landscape mode through it's default media player. There are also some minor bugs present in KD Player software. I have version 0.9.6 installed on my C5212.
Rahul, 13 Oct 2009Hi Usman, nice info there..however is the battery life actually restricted to 3 - 4 hours? Any... moreHi Rahul, Battery duration is excellent, more than 2 days or approx 50 hours. You can't empty it by non-stop listening of FM Radio or Audio Player for even 10 hours. It has longer battery life than my previous E200 mobile (which had 13 hours non-stop FM Radio usage capacity).
The battery duration for any mobile depends on the user itself. But the 3 or 4 hours battery life is just a false statement. I didn't check the battery duration on phone calls.
I have faced one minor problem. After using C5212 as mass storage device, sometimes (if using non branded memory cards) it shows "Updating" pop-up message for few seconds if you try to access memory card from mobile's file manager. This issue has been resolved after using 4GB MicroSD HC card. You can read my full review of C5212 on my website "usmanafzal.com".

So far, no serious issue except that in-call conversation cannot be recorded(mine is a India-version handset). Also, I have observed one peculiar thing- that call duration for all calls made from the default SIM are perfectly recorded. But there is no record for the calls made from the other SIM. Thus I cannot view what duration of calls I have made or received from the secomdery SIM. Experts, please advise and give the remeady, if any.
The Battery Back Up is too bad .. as one of the reviewers has said it is for 3 - 4 hours and it is necessary that there should be a considarable improvement in the battery as well as the calling method where in every time i need to reeboot the mobile in order to swap the network ... Other wise the mobile is very good .
gr8 phone! first time that any branded company introduce us with duel sim card phone! nice phone ....

i bought my unit without a memory card. i want to buy at least 4GB. does C5212 can use SDHC cards or only microSD? the manual only indicates microSD and i couldnt find a microSD greated than 2GB, though it says it could support up to 8GB. Thanks!

Mine have 5212, 10 days. The major problem of this phone is installing 3rd Party Application-it requires both jar and jad files for installation. U can install application up to max of 4GB-TOTAL. Further u can't add any themes to it. for India supply u do not have the call recording facility, which other parts have. other wise this is a good phone compare to other dual phones in the market. May samsung update these drawbacks in the firm works.
the very first moment when i've seen the model of samsung c5212 i was impressed to buy this mobileand finally i purchased it. it's very great to have it.thanks to samsung mobiles.

I am using it's latest version on C5212. KD Player has no restrictions about number of files in the playlist. And the playlist is still saved if you Exit or close it. You can also see tags info of MP3 files.
Yes, C5212 can minimize JAVA application. Simply press "END" call red button. You will see two options: 1. Hold JAVA Application 2. Exit. Just select option # 1 and you are on home screen with text line "Press OK to retrieve KD Player". You can see JAVA icon in red colour in upper middle position of screen which indicates a minimized JAVA application. Only one JAVA application can be minimised at a time.
