I bought an E1100 in December and I regret it.To lock and unlock you just press one button instead of two and it unlocks too easily - it unlocked SEVEN times in my jeans pocket last Wednesday and I even dialed 999!!!
I bought this as an emergency interim phone as my higher spec handset has finally given up the ghost. This one seems pretty good so far, it's like going back about 10 years in terms of fancy extra features, but if its a PHONE you want and nothing else, this seems great. I had trouble getting the back off too, but in the end I wrapped rubber bands around my thumbs and was able to do get enough grip the slide the back off.
It's an excellent phone I bought it because I was having a problem with my rubbish nokia 6300 and I had to make a call so I chosed the cheapest phone in a mobile shop
First I thought it would be a bad phone but I was really surprised it's a fast phone with a clear screen and a powerful vibrator and good sound
I like it soo much
It's really worth buying

i purchased the samsung e1105t and was told it has internet access and found out it can not. I would never have taken it if i was correctly informed. Hope something can be done. Battery life very good. Greg. south africa.
the instructions provided are minimal. Are full instructions available anywhere?
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2009Great Phone, cheap easy to use but can't get back cover off.try using a piece of rubber to aid friction
celestino, 29 Nov 2009I just bough the E1100 today but just like manny of you Icant open it its very anoing going ... moreIt helps considerably if you use a thin rubber sheet eg what you use for unscrewing jar tops, to increase the friction.
this handset is now only £3.95 at the carphone warehouse. !! shame you can only by 2 at a time ~:P
To remove the back cover....with the cover facing up and the arrow pointing away from you, grasp the phone with both hands, thumbs on the cover and press down and away from you. Its realy stiff so persevere!
But dont try prising it off with a blade, it will slip and ruin the cover or you!
I have had cell-phones since February 1986, still have the same number!
I have just purchased a third Samsung e1100. My wife has one, as has my daughter. I have one now as a spare! For less than a fiver the phone is absolutely brilliant! Without a camera or mp3 player and such like the phone is able to be ridiculously cheap. Its dual band and has colour screen and a realy long life battery. From the Carphone Warehouse it comes network unlocked with a choice of sim! You could not ask for anything more of a cell-phone! It looks good and performs realy well, so I am recomending this phone unreservedly.
