Beside all I mention there is more:
There are nice features like alarms, calendar, Worldclock, calculator, Timer, FM Radio, Picture editor, File Explorer, QWERTY Keyboard, microSD memory expansion [up to 8GB], MicroUSB port, excellent battery life, Dedicated "Switch SIMcard" button, Bluetooth and Camera.
The bad news are:
- Its plastic body and keyboard feels cheap. [Not a big deal for the price]
- Keyboard buttons are kind of small. [Not a big deal if you have small fingers!]
- Screen and Camera arent that good looking. [Not a big deal for the price]
- One of the SIMcard does not work if you are using one of the lines [Ex: Both SIMcards are active at the same time BUT... If you are using SIM1 on a call then SIM2 becomes INACTIVE till you finish the call on SIM1] When you finish the call then both SIMcards becomes active ' .
- GPRS Connection??? Samsung, are you kidding me??? What a crap... The only downside :( REAALYYYY SLOOOOOOWWWWWWW!
People MUST understand that this is NOT a smartphone, stop complaining if it doesnt have 3G, capacitive touchscreen or iOS/Android!!!
This phone is for making life simple on people who uses 2 SIMcards.
Note: You can consider MOTOROLA EX115 which looks more professional and is a little bit bigger BUT I really hate motorola's MENU and the battery life is way shorter than this Samsung C3222.
Note2: Be careful with chinesse DualSIM phones 'cause I read that it can affect your brain more than other phones 'cause they dont control radiation [SAR] that much...
Hope I help you with the decition!
Why buy a dual sim phone? If you need to use two sim cards then you need a dual sim phone. (Your sim cards can be on the same network/service provider or on two different networks).
The Samsung Ch@t C3222 is certainly no smart phone. So if you are looking for WiFi, iOS, Droid etc then continue shopping :((
Most important for me is the Samsung Ch@t C3222 long battery life. Even with the Bluetooth on, the phone battery lasts days!
The phone is ultra easy to setup and use.
It's even easier to setup if your old phone was a Samsung - if so, you can Bluetooth all your contact information to the Samsung Ch@t C3222.
Switching from one sim to another on the Samsung Ch@t C3222 is so easy - Simply press the sim switch at the right of the phone and you've switched networks for outgoing calls.
You can save data on the phone memory or on a micro SD. A budget priced 2GB micro SD is more than adequate if you are using the micro SD mainly to back up your phone contacts.
The Samsung Ch@t C3222 allows each sim/network to be customized with its own ringtone, wallpaper and color theme. So, at a glance you can see what network sim is currently your default for outgoing calls.
The QWERTY keyboard (albeit tiny) is convenient for texting - I prefer a physical keyboard over a touchscreen to text.
A fun feature with Samsung phones is, by turning on the Bluetooth, messages can be sent between phones via Bluetooth, of course, without having any network charges!
By simply pressing a switch at the left of the phone, you activate a fake call feature. Your phone 'calls you' a little later.Read more ›
Liked the look and feel of this phone. Started using it for a week or so.
I was highly impressed with the quality of the handsfree and the battery life.
The menu system was a little counter intuitive but this might be since this was my first Samsung phone.
The deal killer was when the phone would randomly drop the carrier signal for either or both of the SIM cards.
I had to manually setup and search for the signal multiple times. The last straw was me standing in downtown San Diego with an AT&T SIM card active and the phone telling me 'NO NETWORK', returned it the next day.
The above was my initial review, but unfortunately I have to edit it. It is now 8 months later and the phone doesn't work. I took extremely great care of it. The phone refuses to charge or power up. I would not waste my money buying this phone.
