Following is how you set custom ringtones/message_tones/notification_tones for your android handset:
1.) Attach usb cable and mount your sd card so that its accessible on your Desktop PC.
2.) At the root of your sdcard, create a new folder and name it "media".
3.) Inside "media", create three additional new sub-folders namely "ringtones", "notifications" & "alarms".
4.) Use these sub-folders to copy your favourite media to and thats it :)
Note : Folder names are case-sensitive, so letters must be in small-caps only. If your media (.mp3, .wav etc.) don't get listed while making selection inside your phone, try mounting/unmounting ur sd-card or restart your phone, alternatively.

Wanted to share with you the new video of I5700 with android 2.1 (most probably official) from a cell phone operator in Europe. You will notice that Samsung has customized the menu, and also provides Samsung appz....

--Memory Card Data : Attatching USB cable and selecting "Mount" option from the phone.
--Contacts : They automatically keep syncing with ur google account (requires internet connection). I still haven't come across any such app which allows offline transfer of ur contacts to your pc via usb. May be "Samsung Kies" (A new PC Suite) will offer such functionality once it gets available with 2.1 release.
--Messages : There is one simple, yet powerful app from an Indian author called "SMS Backup & Restore".
Free GPS Navigation with voice-guidance
--Co-Pilot is one to name, its not free though :(

The next close to your budget might be the Tattoo from htc. Compared to Tattoo, i5700 has better h/w, better screen size, better resolution and large catalog of compatible apps which can be downloaded from android Market.
Everything apart, there is considerable price different between the both (INR 2500-3000). Tattoo might come good for you considering 2 things : 1.) It's from HTC, which means good customer support 2.) It has HTC proprietary SenseUI which is an eye-candy and brings totally different user experience.
Unlike current 1.5 plain vanilla version of android, from 2.1 upgrade you gonna see some samsung customizations from UI aspect as well. All-in-all i5700 is the best bet for you under ur budget, go ahead.

--) Regarding mp3 as msgtone, stilling finding, will let u know as I find it...
--) Wait for the official upgrade to Android 2.1. It's just around the corner and will definitely address the BT transfer thing, as it exposes Bluetooth API.
--) There are manufacturers who had customized android ROM to support Radio (e.g. HTC Tattoo). Unfortunately i5700 do not have it and will not have it from the upgrade as well (doesn't have supporting h/w i guess).
I am seeing FM is not there. I am fan of FM channels. Can anyone help if there is any way I can get FM working on this mobile?
Thanks Gurdeep for your help...i'm very keen to try the google android os....but do anyone have idea about some other android os phone better than this one?or this is the best for my budget?

I can count its over 80 applications installed on my handset and I got no single issue related to the memory while installing. 180 MB internal is enough for me, i believe. Furthermore, you may backup ones u don't use often and install them later when u really do wish to have those available.

I guess it's not about the phone, but the platform u wish to use. If u r new to android n give it a try, just go for this handset. Its economic, reliable and performs well with its 800Mhz clock speeds. Whats more, it will soon receive latest upgrade to android 2.1. True google experience phone I'll say :D
Happy buying :)
I used nokia 5800 for a year and now i'm thinking of buying this one....should i go for this one?my budget is rs 15000-16000....please suggest me which one to buy?
"Addy: Can anybody tell me, how much free memory is available on the spica, since i guess the os(android) takes away a major part of the internal memory, and a too little is lft free for installing apps."
Same question, anyone?
This phone is great! i advise u guys to buy it. Its very fast as it runs on android an has a fast processor of 800. the price rocks too!
Looking for the best price in Europe, I just came across two different model numbers GT-I5700HKAEPL and GT-I5700HKADBT. I googled it and got hits only from German stores not clearly stating any differences. Any clues?!
Does anyone know where I can download a Free navigation with voice direction software from?
Spica has internal memory of 180 MB, and as we know android still doesnt allow installing new apps/programs on the sd card.
Can anybody tell me, how much free memory is available on the spica, since i guess the os(android) takes away a major part of the internal memory, and a too little is lft free for installing appa.
