This phone is great. I have had it a few days and i am always learning something new. It can be slow at times and the camera isnt the best ever but other then that its perfect. This is my first touch screen and i am very happy with my purchase. I would recommend this to everyone. Hope this helps !!!
i dropped by at SM fariview. i saw the Samsung booth in front of pizza hut and i think they are selling this unit for Php8k only (Php7,+++)....im not sure though if this is the unit.. hehe...i'm having second thoughts already if im going to buy this...i think it's a promo only :)
just purchased this phone. I am new user to use samsung mobile, so i am facing difficulty to operate this software. Can anybody guide me in the following queries:
1. The Time and Date: I have tried to change the time to my location (Islamabad) but it does change. although i have changed the location to GMT 5+ location in the map of the world. The date is shown of 1980s. when we recieve any call or sms it is shown that the call or sms is recieved in 1980s.
2. how can we send the files/songs into the phone by not installing the complete software. just like my sony ericsson phone, i just plug into the usb cable and in My computer i find Sony Ericosson Device icon. I can use that like usb device.
3. when i use the songs/media player or radio they dont vanish from the screen; although they are stopped. I mean their windows are still on the screen.
If any body is from Pakistan, please share me the contat number so that i can talk in details.
I just bought mine yesterday night for 11k Pesos @ Trinoma. It was indeed quite pricey, but then again the purchase had 2Gig memcard. And since I paid in cash, the clerk gave me a discount!
The phone can run Opera Mini with no problems...although if you get annoyed of the limited characters it provides when you type-in, just press and hold any of the numbers until it brings you to the original Samsung layout for typing.
When dragging a widget to the widget tray, make sure that the point where you had dragged the icon IS INSIDE the widget tray as well, otherwise it will only be placed at the background!
so far, my experience about the phone is all good eventhough there's no 3g. there were somethings that annoyed me at first but when i figured out how to do around with them, my frustration drains away

To add a louder message tone, edit the profile and just select (touch the box up right) one loud mp3 you have copied in the "sound" folder of the phone.
