Within the United States, we tested the GPRS connectivity and found it to be good quality, allowing a laptop co connect to the Internet via its infrared port. We did not test this in other countries, but did not really expect it to function as GPRS support has a much smaller coverage area.
We enjoyed playing around with the camera and creating our own wallpaper for the telephone. The sound quality on the ringtones was not great, so the musical ring tones left a bit to be desired. The Samsung software for managing the telephone numbers in the phone could use improvement, but is nicer than manually entering all the telephone numbers into the phone memory.
