..the phone is great,,i love it,.i just wanna know how to download necessary things for this phone,.?..thanks,.
..are casing for this phone available???where??how much???want to change the casing of my samsung galaxy i510,..thanks
I have this phone for half a year now, i can tell you it's good, but it's not perfect, if it's 2.2 android it may lag, but if you upgrade it, it will be fine. Also the screen is a bit low quality and resolution. Other than that it's a good cheap android phone and i love it
I have this cell, it's really good. QWERTY keyboard is totally helpful and you get used to it. There are no lag problems such as mentioned, but ONCE IN A WHILE, with many apps running, it lags, true.
But there's an important problem for now: after upgrade (official, by Samsung) to 2.3.6, battery is running TOO MUCH LOW. About mine, when it had 2.2, battery had run till 4 days or more (in case of standby). Now, with 2.3.6, it discharges at maximum of 30h. Very nonsense!
I will downgrade anytime...
In short, because of QWERTY keyboard, it really worth the money invested.
Anonymous, 10 May 2012I want to buy this phone but seems like it has been discontinued, is there any way I can get it?Dont even bother to buy this phone. It lags all the time. Restarts for unknown reason. Dont waste your money on this one just buy a blackberry or something. I'd rather have galaxy y. The qwerty board is really not that good but its helpful though
Anonymous, 10 May 2012I want to buy this phone but seems like it has been discontinued, is there any way I can get it?If you go to the Samsung website and pull up the 551 info sheets/tabs, it'll show you that only Bell and Virgin mobile carry this phone.
Was researching it myself today!
