I also started with this phone, it was very cute for about a year, then I dropped it and the entire navy-pad went wonky, then I dropped it again and the navy pad worked again, but the top of the screen went white! So, while I know that it was my fault that it dropped, what if next time, somebody left it somewhere and a cat knocked it over? Then you need to fork out alot of money to fix it, and in South Africa, parts aren't exactly abundant. Anyway, some advice, get a phone sock, or one of those covers that you can buy.
I bought this phone around October 2006 and I have had no problems with it at all. I can use every feature on the phone without any hassle.
By all means my Samsung D500 has been good to me ever since I first bought it in Oct 2005 it was one of the first types with a slide. However, after owning many samsung phones through the years, there is no doubt in my mind they are unreliable, very breakable phones, this one is no exception. The other day after one and a half years, the vibrating mechanism has broken. There are many small functional operations when using the phone which I don't like also - such as the RINGTONE AND THE VIBRATION cannot work at the same time i.e. in sync. Also writing sms's could be alot more user friendly. The front screen is very easy to scratch. It's a chunky phone compared to others. And you cannot use your own msg alert tones. Apart from that it has been alround good. I am in the market for a new phone now and I think i will look elsewhere other than samsung perhaps a nokia or the new lg kg80 chocolate phone which has a touch screen.

you need to contact your service provider ( i.e o2 or orange.) for the web browser setting which will then allow you to access the gprs on your phone.
