My old phone decided to die on me a few weeks ago. So I decided it was time to invest in a new one, and I decided to go on contract. I ended up getting the new(ish) Samsung GT-S5600. The contract is with Orange Dolphin and costs £15 a month and includes the phone, 100 minutes of calls to any...

ConsFeels solid, yet is quite delicate

The Samsung GT-S5600 is a chocolate bar-shape mobile from Samsung from the end of 2009. It features a 3.2 megapixel camera, has a touch-screen and is known for its very palm-friendly feel (in the same vein as the iPhone). Once my girlfriend had enough of this phone, I took it off her hands just...

ProStylish, practical, durable.

ConsWould be nice to have games

I have always had problems with mobile phones. You think you are buying a high-quality product because of the price tag but it always seems to have a major technical error after only a short amount of time. I did not find this the case with the Samsung s5600. Believe it or not, every feature has...

I just bought this phone(Samsung GT S-5603, Indian version) two months ago, after doing a lot of online research about full touch-screen phones. I must say that I did the right decision to buy this phone. Anyway, that enough of self-praising, let’s go to the main topic. As I have said before...

In my view, this phone is a good looking touch screen phone. The pink colour is especially good for those girly girls out there like me. I think it is fun to use and responds well to touch, but some of the I found some applications are difficult to use. You can upload photos to use as the screen...

My sister had the same phone and same problem, nothing we tried worked. she hadn't had the phone long, it was from vodafone, so she phoned their customer service helpline and they gave her a new one. If the samsung helpline can't help, try asking orange to replace it! hope all gets sorted soon, i know i couldn't live without my phone!
