Stop asking 1000000 times the same question!
Now just be patient

KUNTA, 22 Oct 2010 Bluetooth? Can not connect with Mac. My main reason for bying this phone is to backup my adr... moreThe only reasonable way to sync it to Mac is using your Google account. I do this way and it works. Also you can use DUN and file transfer via BT.
reden, 21 Oct 2010are there available apps to use its gps? like those sports tracker for nokia where you can log... moreHello, did you find out if its possible to use the GPS for logging tracks, I want to use it for Biking, skiing. I don`t find any answers in the reviews... Greetings Roel
roland, 11 Dec 2010is this phone have an altimeter?? theres no in specifications?yes, it can get from GPS signal like every other GPS phone - longitude, latitude and altitude ;)
mm, 18 Nov 2010got it on tuesday evening - everything liked - the sound is clear and good, ringtone also loud... moreGot it back few days ago.
Now it has newer firmware in which, so now there is no problems with memory :)
Also put TrekBuddy software on it, and throug MobileAtlasConverter downloaded maps. It finds GPS signal even in room in a 10-20sec!
I like this phone more and more :)

btw, Dorro and JCB has already a rugged dual sim mobile phone. here it is...
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!
ngampleh, 15 Nov 2010Hello, I'm from Indonesia I've got this phone yesterday.. still doubting shock resistant. Ov... moreIf this is out in Indonesia will it also be out here in the Philippines? I hope I can get myself one as a Christmas present. Im looking forward to its torch, compass, GPS and altimeter feature. My samsung b2100 has been very reliable and I hope this is better.
climbcycle, 20 Nov 2010Are there different models of the 2710 then? Am a bit confused as have seen 2710 but with ... moreit should be same as what you seen here in gsmarena if in case it's different it's not ginuine? or means from china. or i dont know else why?
