this phone is great it just take some time to use it and stop posting stupid feed back if you can't use it
john, 12 Jun 2008slinkywc can you please tell me how you can send this phone back? My GPS does not work either.... morehey john.
I work in the tel co sector and i have some different channels than a normal consumer.
I sent it back as an ELF ( early life failure, 14 days after purchase is the time allowed by Samsung. ) which helped in the refund process.
Samsung do know about the problem with the phone as almost everyone we have sold has the same problem.
I had no problem in returning it.
Although it runs similar software to the navigator the sensor for the GPS is different and it does not have a-gps which makes it a hell of a lot slower on the navigation.
In regards to video recording i never tried it.
Just remember as a consumer you have rights and demand some action as the phone is falsely advertised as a GPS phone with a crappy GPS.
Some one please give me advise on how to open this phone without any hassels.What I need is a simple trick that wont lead me to breaking my phone....
slinkywc can you please tell me how you can send this phone back? My GPS does not work either. And has problem with video recording too! I tried to return it to Vodafone Greece and Samsung Greece but they do not accept returns. I sent it for service, they did not fix it but they told me they fixed it, 6 weeks later. They asked me to re-send it. Actually I want to throw this phone to the face of the Managing Directors of BOTH companies!!
hey guys have has this phone for 3 days now and wishing i had not got it.
The phone it self is nice to use with a nice keypad and slide design.
My problem is with the GPS. It takes for ever to find your position and when it eventually does the battery dies.
Even the accessory pack that comes with is is cheap and nasty.
if you want an good everyday phone it's not so bad but if GPS is your main concern in a handset I recommend looking elsewhere.
I'm going to send this one back and get the N95 8gb which i should of got in the first place.
I like this phone and am enjoying it BUT how do I get the GPS function to start working ? Even standing outside and away from buildings,it refuses to lock on.
Best phone on the market in Australia by far. I also work in a mobile shop and not one has come back so lease people don't tell stories because you are a Nokia fan. Nokia simply are poor quality phones these days and it's down to arrogance they still sell with the exception of the 6300 which has been a great phone. HIghly recommend this i560 though, works wonderful, maps are great and all round quality phone.
GPS? huh.. it does not work!! 3MP camera? Bad fotos + bad video!! even after I sent my i560 for service! And Service sucks. Vodafone does not care, Samsung does not care! I live in Greece. Both companies suck here!! This phone is worth around 50 euro, not even that, dont pay more!
The samsung i560 is a good phone. The GPS works fine and audio volume is ok. Battery life is acceptable compared to other samsung phones. The real problem is openning and closing the battery case. The trick is, to open, place your two thumbs at both ends of the case(not at the beginning as indicated by an arrow mark, but at the end) press down hard and slide out the case. It opens more easily this way(but not as easy as a normal samsung phone). Except this problem of battery case openning/closing, I recommend this phone.
hey guys, i work for a fone compay and let me tell you, every one i have sold, it has come back.. NOTHING BUT TROUBLE .. got an idea, but a nokia that has nav software, go on tomtom website and download navigation and your done.. it works best with n81, 6120, e65..
Great phone and functionality but can anyone tell me how to get the provided Route 66 navigation system working on this phone, all installed correctly but it cannot get a position? If this starts working I highly recommend the phone!
i got one 15 days ago.
let me tell you first the drawbacks; 3.0 MP camera is weak since there is no auto focus, and there is no wi-fi. plus when you use gps battery dies very quickly. also a bit heavy.
yet in normal usage, battery life is good enough (4-5 days) when you switch off constant satellite search function.
design is fantastic. thanks to Sybian OS, you can update and/or personalize the phone.
Can anyone tell me if the built in GPS of this phone work the same way as the Nokia 6110 nav or do we need to use GPS receiver to use the map?
Thanks in advance
No Wlan??? Think i550w is better. Maybe they will again have i560w later...
I learn that Testing at sumsung and vodafone labs FAILED for many functions of this phone and still Samsung tried to sell units that were already prodused. That's CHEAP business practice for Samsung. Why dont they RECALL it and give us a unit that works? Vodafone? r u doing anything about it?
