This is a phone which primary target is TALKING on two lines. Only SIM 1 is tri band slot so because of that people have problem in US Canada and other part of world. Radio works only with earphones because radio antenna is located in them. I have him about 2 months and I'm satisfied. T9 problems, just press and hold button(changing of mode of writting) for couple of seconds pressed and usual Abc or ABC will appear on screen.
What About the Battery Performance?
Is it efficient as mono-sim cell phones??
Dont bother about getting this to work with pc studio or with sycnronisation. They simply dont work. I am truly disappointed by samsung for providing a fone that does not work with the same software that is provided with the phone in its box! Its just a hoax putting in a cd in the fone s box that is not compatible with the fone itself!!!!!
I just bought one and I don't have the manual. Can someoane give it to me? Or a lunk something? Tks
I found it impossible to connect to PC Studio. and impossible to syncronise with outlook. For me its a major disaster. Its a useless fone if you cannot store your calendar in it properly. So far no one gave me any solutions and Samsung support is poor (or inexistent). I am leaving my email just in case anyone has any ideas!!!!
Have heard that this phone is dual sim phone, however the primary sim slot works on GSM 900/1800/1900 while the secondary sim slot works only on GSM 900/1800. This is a major turn off because most dual sim phone enthusiasts would like to have a phone which runs on triband mode. Has anybody tried using both sim card slots on triple bandwidth?
I have just bought a new D880 and have found quite a few problems.
1) Even with all my efforts I could not synchronise it with MS Outlook/Outlook Express even with PC Studio 3( CD provided in the sales box)
2) All the sent messages do not appear in the sent bx. It always remains at zero messages though I am constantly sending messages.
I have contacted the service providers (M/S Mobile Zone) in my country who are providing warranty against it but of no avail. They could also not solve the problem.
Please do help me in this regard.
I am a Samsung user for many years, and this is my 4th phone and I LOVE IT. I have this phone for a few weeks now. It works perfectly fine. What I love about it, both sims working at the same time, no need to shutdown the phone
Nice phone, nice design, common features, but the best part is it has dual function!
Would be better if samsung will produce 16million colors phone.
Well / all I know is that disabling T9 by long pressing of "star" did work for me. T9 never gets in my way any more.
The sync problem unfortunately remains.
the phone got alot of gooog think
but the phone didn't work at all
i turn it on it turn back off
i dont no how to fix it
i dont no wat to do

THANKs 4 REPLY!!!
I am from Singapore and I use a Duos, I have no problem here as both SIM of mine is GSM, this also means that I won't have a problem when I roam to countries like china, malaysia etc. But not when I am in USA. In the USA, this phone will only act as a Dual card holder phone and to toggle between two sims you will need to reboot.
the blue tooth will have a problem, and I believe that this is one technical aspect which samsung engineers fail to realise. all the 5 models of dual sim, dual standby phones I have from china have this problem, it has a radio conflict and blue tooth will not work with both lines, and sometimes it will just reboot.
do not buy this phone if you intend to use it in countries like philipines, USA, Chile etc. but for those who did, this phone will work when you are in countries where by they have GSM providers.
by the way, in china dual sim, dual standby phones are common, and they are largely for GSM users. they even have a "public mold" for factories to rent and produce such phones, the only difference is probably the appearance. the one that produces their own proprietory design is Gionee. think the website is www.gionee.com, and still it won't work in the USA etc. Wind duo is different, it combines two seperate phones into one, and I personally dun like it though techinically it is able to avoid radio conflicts by having two of everything. to me, its like tying two phones together with a rubber bung.
just remember, this is a dual sim, Dual "standby" phone. but it also depends on what system your service provider has.

Tomas, It doesn't work!
T9 NEVER EVER DISAPPEAR FOREVER!
did you find solution with calendar sync?
It is truly a nice phone but I am having a crazy time trying to sycronise it with outlook. The phone would not work with the software provided with it in the box. I am a bit disappointed. Never had such problems with Nokia before :(
Guys, this is a cool phone.I really liked it.Both the sim cards are active at the same time.The only thing is that one should know the right operating procedure for this phone.
just arrived in new york today, april 2, 2008. i planned to use one smart(philippine) sim and the other with a t-mobile(usa) sim. unfortunately only my primary is active while the second one registered no service. we were not informed beforehand about this problem. if i knew this problem earlier, i would not have bought the samsung 880.
