may i ask if its possible to install skype into this phone? thank you for your help...
battery gone flat and now will not take charge, phone only about 2 months old. Any suggestions to rectify?
This phone gives the impression that it has two onboard speakers, I can only hear sound from the left side, is this normal? Thank you.

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$
This Xcover 271 is very good and working very fine....and also working internet is very fastly when i connect my laptop via Bluetooth... :-) ;-)...

Those are enough for me and i love it for outdor.
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. "caveo emptor"
felix, 24 Feb 2012Why on earth, people buying this phone for 180 Euro?????Because of IP67. I wish the Xcover this stay with me for years. I hate switching to new mobile model every few years.
My previous phone, Siemens ME45, has been more than 11 years with me (battery replaced four times).I wishing that this Samsung can endure something like it also.
By the way, cover 271 is available for less than $125 here.

It's hard-wearing but not water-resistant, but cheap and simple, no fancy features. Although I would still go for 2710...

2. I believe it will save sms on sim until it's full (mine can take 20) after that it saves them on phone. I don't know how what's the sms capacity of phone but I haven't hit the limit yet.

RickySyd, 05 Jan 2012Does the phone have a socket for an external antenna? That's what separates a toy from a tool.... morevery easy to answer no it doesn't just to say it lol great little phone though would like to see m dad try and break this one with his phone track record.
Does the phone have a socket for an external antenna? That's what separates a toy from a tool. A ruggedised phone should be a TOOL. Using an external antenna with my A411 makes all the difference in low-signal spots.
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2011Great phone for my trade however when I go to my contacts and type in the first letter, why do... moreWhat it does is for example: if I type in N it finds all names in your contact list that start with the letter N or have the letter N standing alone ie; Jim n Alice ... hope that helps ya.
