I use this phone just as simple not smart Phone with camera without internet.
It have a nice camera with autofocus and flash (include macro, ...!). Pictures are stored on internal 108Mb or microSD. All contacts it store as files, so no limit in count. It also have fields for more numbers and various details available, is synchronized with Outlook using Kies app. Can record sounds in MP3 format. After 3 years of everyday use their battery last approx a week without charging (it was up to 12 days as new device)...
I do found these small comfort-decreasing minuses (+solutions):
- various butons and apps are forcing user to connect over internet. I do help myselves by setting scrap data into connection manager and stop use internet at all.
- contacts fulltext search is missing. Unofficial JAVA App for it is working OK, but is not error free and is also very very slow to start (ContactSearch app from Dexmobile called as "Qfind")
- LED FLASH is not possible to turn on continuously (use like light). Unofficially if selected none quick launch for "4-ways - upper key", than longer pressing upper key can enable or disable the light. Nice!
- Flight mode disable Bluetooth, but turn Flight Mode OFF do not enable it again. Go to Apps - Bluetooth - Search... it asks for enable it again.
- in my car a handsfree Parrot can communicate with it automatically, but only in case there is not in phone any other registered Bluetooth device.
- business card V-Card exchange not working well in all cases
- for check of missed calls and new SMS you must to unlock the phone. The bottom line (where is this usually announced) is hidden by message "Keyboard is locked. Unlock by long pressing *."
- in my pocket is very offen pressed un-lock button (long star pressing lock and unlock)
- when drop-down, everytime dispatch for parts (back cover+battery fall out). It drops me at least 50 times and still working well!
Altrough I do evaluate it as simple and EXCELLENT product for SMALL investment.

It seems like a good phone, only had it a couple of days. The radio is very good sound quality. But I need to know how to delete stuff, Because I have hardly used the phone and I got a message saying phone memory full delete some items. The it doesnt give me the option to delete items, so how do I delete items. And why is the phone memory full when I have hardly used it. Did I download stuff by mistake?
