i just recently bought this phone from aus. it started up and said phone will reboot after i set the simcard status and name. and now it just keeps rebooting??? what can i do to stop it?
i saw this code posted in this review !
*#0206*8378# , you can modify a lot of thinga but use at your own risk. note down the value before making any changes
I have just bought the D880 Duos and I have noticed that the earpiece speaker volume on Sim 2 is not as loud as Sim 1 when making or receiving a call.
I think Samsung should address this problem with a software update for this phone.
On my old Samsung D900 I could access the hidden menu with this code (*#8999*8378#) and change the volume settings,but this code does not work on the D880 Duos.
Does anyone know of a different code?
As one or two other owners have found - Optus chips kill this phone stone dead. The phone tries to find an icon file from Optus' internet site, gets a 404, and then starts endlessly recycling through the boot process. Removing the Optus chip doesn't solve it: the phone is rendered useless.
I killed one phone in Hong Kong, took it back and had it replaced, and then, on arriving back in Australia, switched to the Optus chip, and the phone was dead before I got off the plane.
Samsung Australia engineers are baffled "not a model we support, Mate", and the matter is now in the hands of the Korean general manager at the Sydney service centre who is alive to the commercial issues at stake - but no better able to fix the phone, replace the stuck OS, or explain what's wrong or how to prevent it happening again.
Beware of Optus SIMs! Goodness knows if other Aussie SIMS are as lethal - at USD700 a pop I've given up experimenting.
if you plan to use verizon wireless for this phone, good luck. This phone use GSM band only. All GSM phones uses SIM card. Verizon wireless use called CDMA band. CDMA phones uses no SIM card.
I've had the phone for about 10 days now and so far so good. i have 2 queries though. anyone know if i can play music from the memory card without copying it to the phone? and also, can i compress the data on my memory card?
ive got d880 here in dubai (without duos logo) and it works perfectly. both sim can be used for incoming and outgoing calls without the need of rebooting the phone. others might be trying to use it for 2 different network band causing the phone to reboot. other issues such as the physical attributes is in everyone's discretion so better not to talk about it.
for info if i'm on a call and another one comes in on sim2 it gives me the option to accept /reject not hold.
i dont know why people are saying about phone reboots to call on sim 2 ?
Follow these instructions no reboot required
Go to your phonebook view/open the number to call and press the sim control button on the left side of the phone (above the volume button)to shift from Sim1 to Sim2. the sim 2 lable on the screen turns white from sim 1 and press call button ! sim one is still set to the primary sim but you just do the above to ring out on the sim 2 works 100% so dont panic about having to make sim 2 the primary to call out.
the way above is simple and fast.
Re your question Jeremy
Earpiece volume !
perfectly ok mate its clear and certainly loud enough on 5 of its 7 settings and certainly as good as my previous nokia 6300. no problems on either sim as they seem both the same.
I am a great admirer of samsung products and this is just another great product from them.How do i place an order for this phone, and can be delivered to me in Uganda?
Pls tell me how the phone behaves if you have calls on both of your sims someone told me that this phoe does not have a call hold option pls guide.
Perfect for two sims the primary u select will be calling receiving texting but u can still only receive sim2 calls plus sim 1 which is set to primary.while left button pressed u can do the alternate.Min u u can not dial from each sim anytime have to keep anyone primary to other to receive calls and texts.Price bit high same Old protype sam design but without flash cam and stripe of samsung for date time which disturbs the wallpaper. Its very convienent and easy bit thick too cheap front chrome get scratched easily keep n velvet csse.
What is the call quality and volume like from the earpiece speaker when on a call when using either sim? NOT the loudspeaker.
is this phone in South America yet? I'm in Guyana and for the first time in my life I'm in love with Samsung...
i will also repeat this answer as lots are still asking the same question again.
if you have 2 sims in and wish to change between sims to call/text YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REBOOT THE PHONE. just press the small sim button on the lh side and select which sim you wish to use.
cant understand the comments made below about how your friends and collegues will wonder where you are ? maybe yours is faulty ?
i have now had mine a week and its in the UK on Sim 1 Orange and Sim 2 is on PAYG Virgin and its been brilliant so far, coverage on both sims is very good for signal, its never dropped a call and is a piece of cake to swap between sim's by pushing the sim selection button on the left hand side of the phone.
the battery was charged on Tuesday afternoon and tonight its still showing 3/4 of its capacity. the slide mechanism is tight with no slack opens and shuts with a quality feel.
about all i can say really as i'm pleased with mine.
