My phone wouldn't connect nicely to the WiFi outside, e.g. in restaurants and cafe. Couldn't even browse anything. But I still can connect to the WiFi in my house. However, I couldn't make a Viber call with this phone, while other phones can.

People must understand that this phone was a low-end, budget solution, even when it launched a few years ago. It was very cheap when the modern smartphone trend was just starting.
Even if limited, it allowed you to do almost everything a top Android phone could, for much less. Let's not even compare with the expensive iPhones of that time.
That said, I still have this phone and it's excellent, especially for its price. It's a workhorse that just won't fail... it works brilliantly with MadTeam's CyanogenMod 7 (which is Android 2.3.7). It's much faster than Samsung's original system (Android 2.2), and Samsung's system was pretty OK to begin with.
And, because it runs Gingerbread perfectly, you still have access to a whoooooole lot of both paid and free apps that only the Android ecosystem can provide you for free or for a small price.
Put Madteam CyanogenMod on this thing and you will breath new life into it. It just won't die!
Seriously! Even today (owning a Nexus 4) I'm still impressed by this little cheap phone.
my phone is blocked after someone tried to enter wrong pattern it is asking for my gmail account but its not opening
Easy to use but always shuts down, i have to remove the battery and reinstall it to turn the phone on again. Is really frustrating. I've asked several times and keep getting told it is normal for smart phones - doesn't seem right to me. Its not very full either so can't blame storage. GGGRRRRRRR!
you can upgrade your phone to 2.2 and unlock it
how do i unlock my phone, it blocked after someone tried to enter the wrong pattern? its asking 4 my gmail account but its not opening when i enter the acc. pls help i cant call or send a text 2 anyone but i receive.
pls help urgently.
I hate this phone, not to be rude. it always shuts down for no reason, and it lags so often. It has very little phone storage, and the camera has very bad quality.
I lost mine some few days ago and got a brand new one(samsung galaxy 5) when i got home i tried recharging the phone,when the charger is connected to the phone it turns on if it is off but then it does not charge,i thought it was a fault with the charger so i tried the usb cable to my laptop to charge but then it repeats the same action as that of the charger,what do i do,I love this brand of samsung and dont want to lose it,pls help me.what have i got to do
Proud to be one of the initial user of android, Even today i own my Galaxy5.pretty satisfied with
well basically i have got my samsung galaxy 5 for about 3 years now i also encountered that the phone will basically do nithing without and memory card/sd card other than that the phone works extremelly well and is quit fast sending emails and surfing the web!!!
i personally have had nothing but trouble with this phone right from the get go i had trouble changing the keyboard settings from swip or handwriting to normal qwerty keyboard but i got there in the end however it recently reverted back and i could only get num pad in vertical small screen and qwerty full screen
then i changed telco and had trouble getting internet working, then wifi was pretty troublesome,
then it started ghost button pressing making it impossible to txt or do simple tasks at times
battery consumption sucked as it would often do things in my pocket and open some apps or change settings id often have to close apps using task manager
i was never able to get the google play app store to work. it kept telling me i needed to download the google play app in order for the store to work but it wouldnt let me download the app from the store?!?!?! vicious circle..
all of these things combined and probably some i cant think of right now inevitable led to this phones immediate death today when it frustrated me for the last time and was met with a sledge hammer.
maybe i got a dud but this is my experience with this phone
granted i used it for over 6 months and it wasnt always a hassle but all the fuctions that phones are capable of these days this one was basically useless to me
time for an upgrade for me..
i carnt get an internet connection iv no sd card in,Contacted vodafone they say i have to take it into shop,What can problem be
