    Samsung Monte 5620 - AVOID !!!

    This phone is the biggest load of electronic tripe I have ever laid eyes on. After reading various articles I went for it on a Virgin Tariff as it was free [ now I know why ] - The Samsung PC Studio software does NOT support it, you CAN'T use bluetooth using the KIES software, you CAN'T transfer outlook contacts and calendar settings via the Kies software - it just falls over without making any changes. When you are connected via USB you CAN'T do anything else with the phone !!!!
    How the hell this got a good write up is beyond me - unless I get a miricle reply from Samsung within the next few days regarding all these problems it will be going back and my contract canceled !!
    So you have been warned - avoid this phone. It's evil.

    I have one, lasted a month or so before I switched to an infinitely superior C905 which I got for free. The battery life on mine was two days maximum, with minimal use in that time. Text input was awful - but then I don't like touchscreen phones. The camera is not great, but okayfor a budget phone. Nothing tells you that the KIES software is no use for this phone at all - no compatible software or functions (yet, anyway). At least mine was free with a £10/month contract, so not too upset!

    Fair point - I have a Sony to 3.5mm adaptor as well as mini speakers which run from the port though so not too worried about that. The decision to use M2 is more anoying, but not a big problem as 2GB is enough for what I need.
