Answer-back and End keys

Overall conclusion

Samsung offers a very favorable market with a dual SIM mobile phone with great workmanship and beautiful design. The 3.2 MP camera delivers good results under normal lighting conditions. Even at night it can deliver beautifully, thanks to the built-in flash, useful results are achieved. The internal music player scores with clean sound and is easy to use equipment. Thanks to Alive Sound (DNSe™ sound enhancement), the sound via the built-in speaker is surprisingly good. The reproduction of the radio stations are in a favorable orientation of the antenna (headset) and is quite scratch-and noise-free. Internet sites load quickly, if they are not designed to elaborate (only EDGE on board) and displayed properly. Various email boxes can be created and messages are easily downloaded. These are fine to read. Even attachments are easily download and well presented, but only if they are not too large. The touchscreen responds very precisely. In the price range (from 165th - €) the Samsung B5722 GT, for a Dual SIM Mobile Phone is highly recommended. We believe that the operation is very user friendly.

Re: Samsung GT-B5722 Dual Sim Mobile Phone

I guess, the banking application you are trying might not be compatible or it may have been corrupted. If you are able connect to internet from your mobile, that means there is no problem with your mobile phone. To check out the compatibility, try using the said application with some another similar mobile (similar configuration) and see if it works.

Re: Samsung GT-B5722 Dual Sim Mobile Phone

It is a nice mobile with 3 megapixels digital camera and a music player. It is compatible with GSM / GPRS / EDGE quad-band. It can support upto 8GB of MicroSD card. I am not happy with application and games in the phone. I am trying to find out more applications for the same and I think that lack here. Other than this the phone is quiet nice.

Re: Samsung GT-B5722 Dual Sim Mobile Phone

I am currently using this mobile phone. I need to know whether there is a way to directly save the receiving messages in the phone memory or memory card? Because by default the messages are saved in the SIM and there is enough space there to hold 10 messages only.

Re: Samsung GT-B5722 Dual Sim Mobile Phone

Well, it should be there because its obvious that phone memory cannot store much messages and SD card should be utilized for the same. Developers might have made it in the same.. I guess all this because i haven't used any mobile apart from Nokia, and in all recent models from Nokia this option is present. We can change the Message Memory by going into Message > Settings > Message memory. Just check it out in your phone, there must be some similar option.
