Hi guys i would like to ask, is this upgradable to android 2.2 froyo? i like to buy this phone but id like to know if this is upgradable... by the way it is already available in the Philippines i saw it in a mall with the pricetag of P11000 for about 244USD
This phone has been announced in India for Rs.8846. For Rs.2000 more, you can get the i5800. I think the latter is a much better option for that price difference.

in our f...g europe u pay 20-30 euro monthly , you still pay when u call, but save 10%...only!a complete joke...oh maybe 50-100 texto for free per month(uh? what a deal??!!)
20 euro by 24 months=480 euro.
at the end you pay more than if you buy your own phone and you pay as you go.
all these phones for free after signing a shi..y contract , are a total rip off, it s like buying at credit. you still pay more at the end.
and u can not use it when outside of your country because the damn phone is locked.unlock it for 2 weeks only is not possible.
what about you pay for you phone, get internet for free, call for cheap on skype and free texto included and u pay 10 $/month only!...they don't want this in europe, they want your money!!!
europe is filled with idiots who like to give their money, it s why everything is expensive there.if they were not buying these shity offers with "free" phones included , it would be much cheaper to call.
