Samsung A800


Finally! If you've been dreaming of a phone that takes decent pictures, you'll gladly hand over your cash for the MM-A800 from Samsung—the nation's first available 2-megapixel camera phone. This phone takes pictures good enough to print, plays MP3s,...

I haven't actually bought the phone yet but before I do I wanted to know how easy it would be to break the flap or somehting. I am quite clumsy so if it is easily broken then it is not the phone for me! The other thing was the sound level. How loud is...

To the people who say they are sick of the on and off melody tones, the simple way to get rid of them is to hold down the HASH key before you turn off your phone putting it into silent mode! :) Overall this phone is great, great style, good features...
