My Monte Tragedy :C (PLEASE BE INFORMED/WARNED)
I’ve chosen Samsung Monte (S5620) because of its style and cool features (3G, wifi-enabled, HSDPA and full touchscreen). When I got home that night after buying the phone, my Samsung Monte automatically went ON-and-OFF MODE! I was so pissed off and simply mad and felt cheated because (1) I bought mine in an authorized dealer of Samsung mobile, and (2) the sales lady in the store even made demonstrations and trial testing of the phone to show that it functions well.
In order to speed up the process of damage control, I personally went to Samsung Phils.’s main service center to request for a technical report stating that my phone is defective so I can have it change for a new unit (this is the store’s policy - even if the phone is less than a week old). After all the hassles I’ve experienced, finally the store replaced my phone and battery with brand new ones. Alas! I found out, in my very room at our modest house, that my NEW phone is just the same as the first one – useless! The next day I even bought a memory card (my last opt – maybe the phone’s memory is insufficient) since the unit and battery already failed me. But then again, it’s no use. So now I’m surrendering (or shouldn’t I?)
FYI: Samsung Monte (S5620) was released early this year (March 2010)
Probable causes/reasons why my Samsung Monte went ON-and-OFF-and-ON-OFF automatically:
1. The phones’ software is not updated
2. The main board is defective? (for both phones? what a coincidence!)
3. Samsung Monte cannot adapt/does not function well/useless in a humid climate or in hot- temperature areas/places (like my case because it only happens inside our home..but normally functions in our centralized, air-conditioned office)
4. Samsung brand is clearly low quality/sub-standard? (sad, sad, sad – it’s my first time to patronized a Samsung product)
Please, please, please help me..what should I do??

sekar, 26 May 2010hi frnds can anyone guide me how to use the GPS in this phone.....i am not gettin any lat/lon ... moreWell its easy. Just go to menu--->gps settings--->gps position--->satelite status---->(now you can see the number of satelites that it can pick up)---->(after 1 or 2 minute go back to "satelite status" and you'll get your long, lat & alt :) NOTE:- For better result be outside of your room under open sky & if you have gprs then go to gps+ settings--->turn on the "auto download" (it will give more accurate position). Enjoy!
