Vagabond, 05 Feb 2011Just got this phone from UK. Works great on Rogers in Canada. Good device for my job in the wo... moreTo Vagabond: Did you buy this phone unlocked? The reason I ask is because not so long ago I bought the similar Samsung B2100 unlocked from an online retailer in the UK and when I went to North America recently, the phone wouldn't boot up on a Rogers SIM, or FIDO (same people really).
It only worked on an AT&T SIM when I was in the States.
the battery should have been at least 2000mAh like E2370.. how long before is this officially out in the Philippines?
Are there any good cases for this phone? I know it's strong and all but I'd like to extend it's luster by protecting it from scratches. I'm in Australia and I don't mind paying for shipping.
blackCat, 05 Jun 2011is it available in the philippines?sir regarding your query, kindly check this site out - http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/3216664/Samsung+B2710+XCover+271?referralKeywords=samsung+xcover+271+B2710
Talktime for Samsung Xcover 271 mentioned in specifications at gsmarena.com are incorrect as it says 'Up to 19 h (2G)'.
Samung sites says only 'up to 870 minutes (2G)' which should equal about 'Up to 14,5 h (2G)' (which is around 24% less than specified at gsmarena.com.

I've watched a video review where it gets dropped from 2 metres and stomped on multiple times, sits in bottom of water tank for 30 mins, and spends some time revolving in a concrete mixer of sand. Also, gets run over by a construction loader and survives.
Is there any weather app like accuweather available for the Samsung 271?

Saw this phone in the shop - terribly big, its huge! So unless you need GPS then B2100 is better alternative for around half the price ;)

hi all, can anyone help with extending the ring on this phone. It doesn't give me long to answer the phone!!
A good phone to be with you. Not Easy to use, but you can trust it.
1. Dairy (planner):
-Adding events +alarm, needs to change Time in three places (must work with one-click-change).
-When Alarm occurs, It doesn't dissappears, even I press Red Button.
2. Stop ringing - Not possible to mute ringing until I answer (the only possibility is to make ring-volume to zerro or cancel). Shtt.
3. Display. It's real sucks in outdoor environment. IMPOSSIBLE to see Anything, if you want to navigate google maps in sunny day. A real Explorer MUST be equiped with Real outdoor display capability.
4. Not possible to use wired earphone, it stops your phone called 'waterproof'.
1. Battery lasts a little bit longer than a week (no videos, no photos, no web-browsing, but 30 minutes google-maps included).
2. Good laud-speaker (handsfree).
(*) After one-day struggle I got my Contacts synchronised with (from) my Nokia. (Nokia -> MS-Outlook --> Samsung-Kyes -> Sams.Phone)
(*) I ant to kick ass to samsumg programmers and send them to learn from Motorola and Nokia, how to make Good Software! --It's regarding to the lack of 'human engineering'
