As the authorized service told me they don't open this phones. If they can't fix them with software they replace it with new one. So I got a new one with up to date firmware. The only reason I had to wait four weeks is because they were waiting for new shipment from Samsung.
While I was waiting for replacement I got familiar with GPS apps and now I like this phone even more. I'd recommend Trekbuddy and Wetravel
John, 04 Aug 2011I saw much better and stronger phone than that. It's called Nomu LM870 and is on e-bayUnfortunatelly it's only IPX5 which means it can be exposed to rain but can't be submerged in water. And it costs just the same.

Had been using this phone for about three weeks. I was getting familiar with gps java apps (Navigami, Trekbuddy, MGMaps). I made 1,2gb large MGMmap cache that contained 50.000 files. I then inserted the card in phone and it was reading it much longer than usual which I didn't find strange as it had to read 50.000 new files. So i set up alarm clock and went to sleep.
In the morning phone didn't ring, was unresponsive and was still reading SD card. I switched it off took the SD card out and switched it back on. The start-up animation played out but nothing happened. The phone would reset its self every 5min without success.
It's been more than two weeks since I took it to the dealer and am still waiting for it.
Will report when I get it back.
B2710. Love this phone but in the last 4 months since I got one I have dialed emergency services inadvertently at least 10 times.
Even though the key pad is locked numbers like 911, 999, 112, 111 can still be dialed if something contacts the key pad whilst its in my pocket. It is driving me crazy not to mention our emergency services. Can this very annoying feature be disabled?
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.
