5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little phone 20 April 2012
By Yannis
Verified Purchase
This is the cheapest, and yet probably the best phone I have ever bought. Does exactly what I want it to do, with no superfluous bells and whistles. Dual-SIM functionality is faultless and dead simple. If, like me, all you care about is calls and SMS, this is definitely the phone for you and, for that low price, one cannot go wrong - well done Samsung! Everything worked straight out of the box. The manual is a bit minimal but, really, there isn't much to put in there.

I understand that this series includes some more feature-rich models (with the price increasing proportionally). If this little thing is anything to go by, I would have no doubts about trying another one from this range if I ever need things like camera/wifi/3G.

Extra points to Samsung for implementing proper Greek language support - an important and well appreciated feature for me when looking for a phone. There are still some manufacturers out there who treat Greek speakers as second-class customers, but not this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars All greek to me 11 May 2012
By Leo
Verified Purchase
Mine had the language set to Greek and the seller didn't include instructions on how to change it, nor could I find them online. I managed to change it by trial and error. The instructions (with crude transliteration) are:
1. Long press of star key to unlock if required
2. Middle button
3. Cog icon
4. 5th option (Tnyeowvo)
5. 2nd option (Lywooa)
6. 2nd option (English)

About the phone itself:

It is even more basic than I thought it would be. For example, you can't even set different alarm times on different days even though this feature wouldn't have added anything to the cost of the phone.

The standby time is quoted at up to 620hours (26 days) which is similar to my previous phone which really did last 4 weeks, but this is down to 3/5 after a week.

The dual SIM aspect works well, for me having a button to switch SIMs works better than the two dial keys found on other phones. For receiving calls both SIMs are active at the same time (as per specs).

It uses Samsung's proprietary charger connector which is a pain (again, as per specs).

No problems with voice or reception quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more juggling phones! 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase
At last a twin SIM mobile that has both SIMs live and all you need to do is remember to select which one you want to use for calls and messages at the time. SMSs are delivered into a central messages box with an icon showing which SIM it came from. So if you have a business and private SIM you now no longer need to carry around two mobiles.

Samsung do quite a few dual SIM mobiles now (look up Samsung Duos) and this, whilst now discontinued, is one of their bottom of the range models. All that means is that its not a smartphone, you can't get internet access, and its not a touch screen. Also its only dual band - so you can't use it in the US or Africa. But everywhere else its good to go. Its just a plain and simple mobile that you can use for calls and messages and at 20 its a bargain! At that price its worth buying just to see if you need/can live with a dual SIM mobile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Cheerful 6 Dec 2013
By Bopper
Verified Purchase
I've been using a Nokia 101 Dual SIM for the past year, and previously had a Samsung slide phone (single SIM) that I quite liked, so thought I'd give this one a try, because I need dual SIMs.

It's fine. It does everything the Nokia does except play music files (and I don't use that feature anyway). Of course, in true Samsung tradition, there's no attempt to standardise with the competition, so there's a bit of learning involved to be able to access some features, but that's no real problem.

I quite like the way special characters are accessed when texting, with each character being assigned to a number key in a series of grids, and I also prefer the single (long) key press to unlock the keypad over the Nokia's two-key combination.

The default tones are a bit irritating, but they can be changed/eliminated with a bit of experimentation. As somebody else said, the message and call tones are a bit quiet, and I've missed a couple of calls as a result, but it's possible to crank up the volume, so it's not the end of the world.

All in all, you really can't complain at this price.

EDIT: It's quite instructive to revisit reviews, and see how prices change in a very short time.

I paid about twenty quid for this phone, and it's now being offered for 31.94!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but takes some getting used to 19 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
I wrote a negative review of this phone at first, because I could not find a way to disable the very annoying noises it does whenever you lock or unlock the keypad. Now, I have found there is a way so I'm changing my review.

Here's what to do: go to sound profiles, select the customised user setting. You can then edit that setting, and go into volume. At the bottom there is a volume control for notifications, that can be turned to zero.

Having done that, it's now quite a pleasant wee thing. Great battery life, nice and cool to hold compared to my 3g phone I had before, absolutely great to have 2 mobile networks for when you need rural coverage and it's not a bad thing to use.

It's a shame they haven't put more thought into the menu system. A lot of little things that would be nice, like assigning a shortcut to switch the torch on and off, use T9 for typing messages etc just isn't there. I don't need that, so I'm very happy with the phone now.
