For those of you disappointed with samsung about the lack of wifi, blame t-mobile not samsung. T-mobile did not want to include wifi because they want you to aquire internet through their data plan only.
its for t mobile go to yahoo awnsers they help or utube theres some vids out
This phone does not have themes which sucks because usually samsung will put some kind of themes on a device. It has vibration feed back for button pressing, the 3g is great but the web browsing isn't G1 or iPhone like. The camera, of course, is the 5.0 which takes great pictures with audio post cards and more. There is no wi-fi which really stinks! NEED WIFI SAMSUNG! (but why when the device's internet leaves much to imagine.) Sound on it is fantastic although the ring tones aren't too loud.
Weird fact, when the phone is locked it cycles through the wallpapers and that can't be avoided so far.
All in all, good basic phone. NOT A DATA PHONE.
ccbq, 12 Nov 2008no, its a touch screen "qwerty" keyboard like the iphoneYes, actually it is a full touch qwerty keypad like the iphone. I've played with one, call it a perk of the job!
it's nice so far but what is lame is that you cannot turn off the shutter sound on the camera
Does this have themes or something? I know it's not a Nokia, but if I'm not mistaken, some Samsung's DO have themes .. That you can download and use on your phone.
I also need to correct the Phonebook specs.
The Phonebook will hold 2000 entries, not 1000.
The battery has a good life. I wasn't able to charge last night (wasn't home). I used the the phone as I normally would including using the web browser. The battery held up for two days. Although the GPS program (TeleNav) sucks.
Very nice phone, picked up 2 of them yesterday. Easy to use and smaller than the iphone. All it needs is Wifi!
If anyone's wondering,
YES it CAN play youtube!
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2008Ah i was going to get this phone until i heard about the web browser :/What did u hear about the web browser? Does anyone know about the battery life from hands on experience?
bee, 13 Nov 2008It says built in GPS? how do you work it? Do you need internet to use it? The gps feature more than likely is listed under applications under "Telenav" or "navigation". I know it has this feature cuz i just got home from store and was playing with it.
bee, 13 Nov 2008It says built in GPS? how do you work it? Do you need internet to use it? U do not need the internet to do gps. You pay t-mobile 9.99/month and u then have gps. The first 14 days of gps "might" be free.
