Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos i589 provides internet connection only with CDMA not with GSM. Great cheating by Reliance Communications by not providing 1GB/month free as per their advertisement of their website. Battery discharging is very fast. be ready to charge it again and again. Conclusion is that it is very bad mobile phone and one should not purchase it.
I am using SCH-I589...read all the posts before mine on this blog.Things I am facing are
1. No kies/ PC suite received with mobile not even available anywhere including the Samsung website.
2. CDMA is the prime provider for internet..but found much expensive ..
3. Battery - too poor.
4. Not friendly for bulk SMSing...threded SMS is a bullshit.. ridiculous to find an imortant msg arranged by date or like that..
5. call log not user friendly...
6. No fonts choice... u've to download it.
7. No standby option for calls & msgs when u r playing games on cell.
ANYBODY IF CAN HELP FOR ANY ABOVE PROBLEMS ....PLEASE HELP ON THIS PAGE.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
This phone is a shit!! Inevitably going to make a big hole in ur pocket..... None of the CDMA providers are having a good data plan to use Internet on.....if one requires just for calling ( GSM + CDMA ) it proves to be a good phone....it's almost a month I have been gifted this phone...I haven't use the Internet the way I used to on other phones......
If you want to look android market on this phone a big NO goes from me to this phone (exceptn you do have a gud wifi connection)
No front camera,
No LED Flesh
Only 3.5 MP
Internet only on CDMA will Make big hole in your pocket.
poor Battery back up.
How much is internal memory????
Decided not to buy this phone.
Samsung should have provided the phone in which we can access internet through 3g or 2g in GSM and only calling for cdma
This phone is worst for those who want to buy a phone in range near by 14000...
i suggest samsung galaxy ace plus and samsung galaxy ace.
wait for price to reduce of both this phone nearly end of june....
That's right. In my country (Indonesia), CDMA operators are the only ones providing true unlimited data plan without FUP at the same or better speed and a lower price than their GSM counterparts.

Do you know the cheapest unlimited 3G is provided by BSNL on CDMA Service? (EVDO Rev A CDMA2000 service)
You will get 3.1Mbps unlimited (no fair usage cheating!)3G service @750 p.m from BSNL.

Will Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos I589 cdma allow to use the BSNL EVDO sim card. anyone have any idea. thanks in advance.
Samsung is finally taking a step in the right direction with CDMA/GSM smartphones. The signal quality and strength of Reliance CDMA even deep inside apartments is just awesome. GSM can't hold a candle. People like me need to be available on the phone at all times, a combination of CDMA and GSM in smartphones is just perfect.
