Do remember, after receiving the no. of satelites (as you said you could receive upto 6 satelites) wait 2/3 minutes watching the no. of satelites and they simply press the "back" key of mobile to go back to the "satelite status/gps position" screen and there you can see your long/lat/alt values :)

Even 1300 is a joke and limitation. I receive nearly 1000 messages per month which i store because of their quality and memory.
Probably it might not serve me :(
Any suggestion guys within 10k. 3g and Wi-fi are required.
Thanks once again.

Coz I think having this Samsung Monte right in your own hands is the best know-how teacher compared to the forums/social networking sites you have attended/joined. And I live in a middle-class house located here in metro manila (where the climate is so hot because itís summer and worsened by El Niño).
2. FYI: Iím speaking from my experiences and not simply playing with the keyboards.
3. The store already informed me that they only do replacement once. Yes, Iím planning to go directly to DTI. But right now, I just want my hard-earned cash backÖ.

The sound quality is okay on both speakers and headphones. But if you live in a humid/hot climate places better (like in my case coz we're experiencing El Niño here in sunny Phil.) think a hundred times coz it automatically turns on-and-off-and-on-and-off mode. And if you actually live in the Phil. think a thousand times! coz if you found out that youre phone is defective you're going to experience super stress and hassles before u can have your unit replaced with a new one (even if u bought it in an authorized dealer of Samsung mobile)..

praveen, 26 May 2010i got the mobile but there is no option of call record is it there or not,Well yes thats the only minor drawback of this...it don't have a call recorder!

Yes you can backup as well can restore the messages easily :) The phonebook capacity is 2000 contacts plus SIM capacity. Don't have any direct backup/restore facility for contacts but you can have either copy or move them :)
This phone attracted me a lot and hence i'm looking forward to buy it. Its really great to have such a mid-range phone with a plenty of features. It has great looks and has been equipped with 3.2 megapixel camera which can make you to get rid of carrying an extra digicam. I'm gonna write another review after my purchase.

Getting mine tomorrow (or so I hope)... First time I'm getting a Samsung phone, really hope I made the right choice! Will leave another comment soon on what I think of the phone. Judging by the comments here it seems that it doesn't have any problems.
