GLAMOUR, 03 Aug 2009can someone please tell me how much memory can i buy for this phone (i560)I have put an 8GB sandisk memory card in my i560 and it works flawlessly. I have heard many others say that 8GB works fine in theirs too.

Aarif, 29 Jan 2009Got the phone 2 days.All looks good including the gps. Question:How long is the battery life,... moreyou can close the gps from the program(both garmin and route 66)but i always do a restart justin case, but the battery life is bad if you use it only as a phone it will last for 2-3 days but if you use the programs or games it might die within one day.but the good thing is that is hard as a rock drop it many times & still works
Stewart, 19 May 2009Hey guys, just bought the i560 and it really is a great phone, apart form one aspect: The GPS... morestay away of buildings to get a good signal when it starts after that it does not lose it easily or if it does it recconects.it works well as a gps but the antenna is not that strong.i use the garmin programm & i am pleased till now.i think its a good phone bu it gets stuck sometimes.you also have to get the gps signal to work because sometimes it doesn't work automatik.i hope i've helped.

Fantastic handset. Instant/Very Fast Operating System. GPS picks up satellite in under 2min. Camera is extremely well in day , very hard for focusing night shots of course but still very well.
Sturdy housing , have accidently dropped it numerous times and have not had to repair once.
Available at Dick Smith Electronics for $230.
Everything you need for small price!.
No complaints at all. :)

I own it for one year now and it only makes me angry (soon going to replace it). I have spent endless hours trying to fix/set-up the GPS, I am telling you it never worked properly. Usually it gives you a sign that it is waiting for a better satelite signal and it does so for ever. I have been reading lots of suggestions, nothing ever worked for me. The GBP fixes (if it ever does) well after I have reached my destination.
The whole symbian thing is way too confusing for me, but ok that's just a personal view. The good thing is that it looks fairly fast and does not crash. The bad thing is that even after a whole year, the thing still makes no sense..
Battery works irregularly. Sometimes it can last for three days after a full night's charge, while sometimes you have to recharge daily (same use of course). Just cannot trust it.
It has quickoffice support which is pretty useless since you cannot edit your documents and even browsing is difficult (a trackball, optical pad etc would be much better). Moving across the screen is slow because of that lousy direction button.
I have also tried every possible display setting for the last 12 months..there is absolutely NO WAY you can see anything on the screen under direct sunlight.
The plastic battery cover seems stuck there. It seems impossible to remove it withouth damaging it (or your fingers).
You cannot deactivate the T9 so when you try to switch from letters to numbers you have to press the shift button three times or more. The keypad is responsive but typing can be a tough task, if you need to type in more than a short message.
(My humble) Conclusion: This is a really well-built phone which will serve you well if you only want to use it as a phone. If you think you are buying a GPS alternative or a smartphone..then prepare yourselves for a nasty surprise. This phone can do anything (on paper that is), but in real life it just doesn't.
For me, it was a total waste of money.
Have had this phone for almost 5 months. Very happy with it. Brilliant GPS! Takes no more than 3 min to get a satelite fix. I just dont know wear to find the distance to destination when using the GPS? Can anyone help?Please.....

I also have a i560, excelent phone, love it! but battery doesn't last a day.
michael, 24 Apr 2009The security code on i560 is 00000000 = 8nots not 4.try this and then change ur code.thanks michael
The internet works fine providing you set it up right, as for GPS signal - i have to agree, never buy a phone for GPS coz it doesnt work
