subbu, 17 Jun 2010i have asked the Samsung service centre guys, they said the phone doesn't support any third pa... morei guess you have not gone through the set fully and clearly..........guys...the camera quality is awesome,u wont be fooled at any cost as he said.......you wont get a set with more clarity and quality in this range except for nokia 6303c
subbu, 18 Jun 2010IN my last post i am taking back that it doesn't have functionality of classic phones, it has ... morei'm sorry subbu but you can find the t9 option in in the menu(options) itself while u r typing the msg
it's a nice mobile.the net browsing is somewhat enough to me.the clarity of camera is also good
When i hold this beauty in my hand it makes me feel worth for the money I paid, lookwise its neat. Features are upto mark, Camera Quality is Fine.. Slider smoothly glides.
subbu, 14 Jun 2010First i want to mention its drawbacks, which are real and found by me after its usage.
1)one ... moreI want to rectify u my frnd . It is possible to transfer java games (jar/jad)files from PC to Smasung metro GT s5200 Mobile phone. through data cable / bluetooth.This phone need's both both jar&jad file to install a game or application.
go to www.mobilerated.com select ur mobile & download both files (jad/jar). or go to www.getjar.com or www.zedge.com. What I want to know that which software should I install to view pdf & office document in my Samsung s5200.I have install a application named "MtextReader" it support only (.)txt [only text files].bye
i warn all of u again, don't go for this if u want to install applications of u'r choice and games of u'r choice. It has very low software capabilities compared to nokia and sony. I am unable to install dictionary becuase it is 800kb and any app more than 500kb won't work(even this is unofficial, officially phone doesn't support installation of any third party applications and games only through GPRS).If u want application freedom go for micromax Q5. It is loaded with applications and believe the OS is super fast and cheap at price. Don't know about its durability, but for ever changing mobile features in market i don't think any one will hang with the same phone for more than 2 years. guys i don't know whethere it supports app. installation ask before u buy.
danish, 16 Jun 2010hey can't we use .pdf file or .doc file in this phone.. please tell........... m waiting.!no u cant use, but u can install reader in unofficial way. only if it is of less than 500kb though any application more than this it won't work
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2010u wil not be able to use zoom feature while camera is ON. first capture the image.save it. go ... morewe can use the zoom while da camera is on...all we have to do is ....first on the camera and then press the volume button ...genarally + and - button will b there for volume press the - volume button...
samsung s5200 is the best for all options.
1.themes are not able to download, but we can create manually, it's very easy, and can create own pictured themes.
2.third party games and applications are not able instal from pc, only download from gprs then instal, it's not a problem, bcoz web(power access)is very comfort for browsing.
3.camera quality is enourmous........
I love Camera`s result itzz awsome ....but there is some appllication not istalleb like theme and other aplication....oveall its fanatasic,,,,but low
hey guys this phone isn't capable of accesing .jar files saved through pc... pls tell the solution??
subbu, 17 Jun 2010i have asked the Samsung service centre guys, they said the phone doesn't support any third pa... moreIN my last post i am taking back that it doesn't have functionality of classic phones, it has good functionality. u can use t9 and symbols everywhere. I coudn't find them in my first attempt as they will not be in menu options. They can onle be accessed usin * or #.
Still don't know how to install applications. I met service center guy today he said games which are having both jar and jad files can be installed, i didn't tried it yet. He said he doesn't know about the application installations.
Still i say don't go for this phone, if u want u'r favorite applications installed on u'r phone. Enquire properly with samsung before buying for u'r requirements. u can do that in contactus in samsungmobile.in, here they provide answers fro our doubts regarding the functionality of phone
danish, 16 Jun 2010hey can't we use .pdf file or .doc file in this phone.. please tell........... m waiting.!u can't use, it doesn't support the installation of any applications. If u bought it u banged an offer from samsung. Show u'r grievence to samsung that is far what we can do.
sush....., 11 Jun 2010where to download themes for samsung metro s5200are u insane, didn't u still know that u have been prey to samsung. This phone cannot be installed with themes u can only create themes using theme craetor in phone
replying to Mr Subbu, 14 Jun 2010hey subbu what d hell r u talking man?? AND READERS PLZZ IGNORE HIS OPINION..,., s5200 doesn't... morei have asked the Samsung service centre guys, they said the phone doesn't support any third party applications. But games can be installed only through gprs. This is what they said
"Samsung GT-S5200 handset does not support downloading of any third party applications / softwares in the handset. The handset supports downloading of compatible java games supporting jad and jar formats supporting MIDP 2.0 . The compatible java games can be downloaded in the handset through GPRS only"
And also crapy thing is that T9 is only available in messaging, u can't find it anywhere else in the phone. One should weight for ages for any text they type in memo etc.
Crap phone to my opinion, didn't have functionality close to a very classic below RS.2000 phone.
Don't go for this phone if u want to be in 21st century, u will surely feel that u are thrown 10 years in past after using this phone.
I am feeling very annoying to use this phone. Today i was to enter a number in the memo, i cannot narrate my pathetic situation when 1 or 0 comes, i feared will i ever complete the typing as it has no support of T9 and should pass through all the symbols in them to get to those numbers.
I think only samsung corby is the only phone which samsung want to market.
And to all the people who want to buy this phone. Goto samsungmobile.com>contactus(at bottom) ask them about what i mentioned. Don't be fooled by the 3MP camera if u fall for that u will loose a lot like me.
Extreme dullness of this phone is its Proprietary software which does'nt allow any third party applications what so ever at all. Samsung sucks in this and mentioned nowhere about this in specifications of the phone.
At last don't expect any software freedom like sony ericsson or nokia with this phone. If u doesn't want any changes in the phone forever go for this.
