Spica upgrade guides Android 1.5 -> 2.1:
Read it first and choose best guide for your phone.
It has 3G connectivity but does not have a secondary camera, so video call is a strict no. If anybody planning to use 3G and video calls, don't go for it.

Anonymous, 16 Jul 2010This handheld is rubbish. Overeat issue, and always fail sending sms even when network is full... moreI agree with the sms part. I had quite a few troubles receiving instead of sending though. My friends are able to send it to me.. but I never receive it.
does anyone know how to update this phone from 1.5 to 2.1 ? i'm having trouble with updating it
Does anyone hear a high pitch sound when their unit's screen is on? Its somewhere near the ear-piece.
I can only hear it when the screen is on. It's sound like a dog whistle(if it has a sound at all) or a mosquito repelant. TIA

I had reviewed it when it had v1.5 installed. I found couple of critical bugs in v1.5 and its fixes. check them out: just google for "techentrepot samsung spica review"
Has anyone tried flashing Firmwares?
If yes, could u kindly explain the risks involved if i flash a firmware from another region into my SPICA.
for eg, if i flash a Euro Firmware or Asian firmware,
I wanted to flash I570EUXJG1, which is from asia,
I'm from india.
this mobile is so good, if you upgrade the android from 1.5 to 2.1 then bluetooth will work, just upgrade your android to 2.1 & you will enjoy with your spica 5700, more app, samsung widget, Divx player, & most of market app will work, the only problem u will face it is with memory.. because you can't save app on sd card, unless you root ur mobile..
i plan to buy this but not now anything about it. does anyone can help me with the good and bad side of this ? is it good enough to buy it? or maybe other brand? many thanks...:)

Three eddy, 17 Jul 2010Be in upgraded android to v2.3 new????1st of all it won't have official 2.2 (from samsung), some developers are working on a custom 2.2
2nd it may not be an 2.3 version of android, butskipping directly to v3 (gingerbread) wich has minimum system requirements (rumored): 1ghz processor, 512 MB RAM (too much for spica)
I am surprised to see so many negative comments on bluetooth, etc.
To me the phone has been an amazing experience so far (been using it for 4-5 months now). There were some issues with bluetooth while I was on 1.5 but after the firmware upgrade (official upgrade using PC Studio) I send files from my PC to the phone without any problems.
2.1 is a wonderful piece of OS. I installed LauncherPro home instead of the stock HOME of android. Also got BetterKeyboard which is better than the stock keyboard.
With also those free apps on the Android market and considering the price of the phone I can easily call it the best phone in that range...
