had the chance to fiddle this phone again side by side with B2100 @ Orange shop yesterday and WOW i was shocked how bad the B2100 keypad is! the keypad of B2710 or X271 Xcover is simply fantastic!
same here, if this phone had all the features it has at the moment plus dual phone capabalities. i would have one by now.
I get this phone almost a month, it's smooth working at the beginning, but after upgrade firmware from server, got a malfunction on CALL STATUS TONES, while making a call and it's connected but there're no signal tone anymore --> pls help
explorer, 02 Dec 2010I'm hoping that in the near future Samsung would come out with a rugged DUAL sim quadband GSM/... moreAgreed, I'm also holding out for a dual sim rugged phone, give me something like one but with dual standby and you'd have my money in a heartbeat.
Had the chance to fiddle this phone @ O2 shop yesterday. It's a lot bulkier than the B2100 and E1130 but this has the best keypad among the 3 rugged Samsungs I've used/tested. Keypad is very responsive and very nice to text compared to all other rugged phones. Although LCD is small, it is very nice because of high resolution.
Downside of this phone is no built-in FM radio antenna. I don't understand why Samsung used the built-in FM antenna on E2152 but this one it doesn't have. Considering that this phone is an outdoor phone, built-in FM antenna is a MUST.
I'm hoping that in the near future Samsung would come out with a rugged DUAL sim quadband GSM/UMTS mobile phone packed with all the features of this Xcover 271.
Can anyone provide some experiences regarding the software and its stability? My experience is that Nokia phones just work much better because the software is more stable and often also easier to use. That would probably make the Nokia 3720 a better choice for me, but I really like the battery life and IP67 rating of this Samsung. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Will I be able to download a chess game to the 2710?
Have seen lots of games I could download but not chess.
Maybe chess is to complicated and the memory would have to be massive?
