righto i will start off by saying the body of the phone is extremely tough being able to withstand my 15.3 hand horse standing on it (yes i know not the biggest horse) and kicking it across the road when i last rode him.
However the software is crap constantly freezing, restarting(useful when in the middle of talking to clients), forgetting to alert me to incoming calls and messages. And yes it was doing all this before the last horse related incident.
this phone has just been a let down from the start.
no more samsungs for me EVER AGAIN!
It's the most rugged phone you can have and fit in your pocket. All other tough phones will require a backpack or carabiner to hang form your trousers. I drove over it with my land cruiser and nothing happened. It is loud and clear. it is also water tight if you keep all rubber gaskets clean. The battery is really 4-5 day, thing. I was expecting much more from the big battery. All in all is a good second phone for the weekend, if you are concerned about your Iphone getting wet.
Has lots of issuses conserning memorycard. Does not want to read it. Now i have new one still same problems. With nokia you have no such problems so to me its very big dissapointment. at first it worked ok, but when using a bigger memorycard 8gb (needed more space for maps) then it had so many problems and finally it refused to turn on and off. it is good phone but the bugs concerning memory cards make it terrible. And i am talking about two phones not one. so i belive the issue is on every phone.
i had a b2710; it ,turning off very often i sended to repairing shop three times and the last time they sended back a new one wich after 3 hours begin to restart and turn off by himself now i'm changing the phone . To bad, i liked this phone but when you are waiting for a call and the phone is shuting down-not a pleasant situation, and many times when the phone was turned off i could turning on only after batery removal and place it back

Works perfectly for over 2 years now on Rogers. Yours might be still locked to an UK provider. There are guys at flea markets that will unlock your device for 10-15$

Not a good phone, for a tough phone the plastic screen protector breaks easily and so then does the screen, worst of all the screen cannot be replaced. I had the phone in my front pocket with a small set of keys, I had cause to climb under a trailer and whilst lying on a grassed surface on the phone the screen broke. Now you find out there is no warranty because this is considered physical abuse (tough phone remember) and worst of all you cannot retrieve date, contacts included because the screen is non replaceable.
