This is good to handle. Now one problem arises that the incoming facilities in this set(Samsung R220) is not available, but no problem in outgoing calls. In case of incoming call when someone dialled the no TEN times he get the success in one time i.e. occasionally I receive someone's call.IS IT Software problem ? or other problem? What shall I do now.
NB. Not only I faces that kind of problem but also there are so many people who suffer the same thing. I have BSNL sim card. (read more)

The network chip in the Samsung SGH-R220 mobile phone seems to have a problem. The signal strength indicator shows no/low signal strength at times, even if the signal strength is high/very high in that location. This causes distortion in voice. (read more)

Well this Samsung SGH-R220 mobile phone is quite cool on the surface but man ...when it comes down to functionality, the damned needs deliverance. I mean I can't get a decent ringtone because 1;none came with the phone 2;the composer is a nightmare. (read more)

The Samsung R220 is different in taste and style. Maybe i'm a little out of date if people disagree :). Being my third phone i must say it is cool. The functions and the LED lighting indicating whom the person is cool. The reception is nice and is capable of getting the message through easily (like most phones). The screen savers are cool, but some of them you don't even want to touch. The problem with the phone is that it is not as user-friendly as the Nokia series, since I have tried... (read more)

Both my room mate and I have this phone and we both experience trouble with it. While I love all the features that go with it, it goes dead often for no reason. You can literally watch the reception bar go up and down while you are standing still. Not sure if it is an antenna problem or just poorly built. (read more)

I don't know if my phone is just a dud, but I've had endless problems. The phone switches itself off, often calls go staight to voicemail when I know there is no network problem and callers complain of a crackling noise in the background and they cannot hear me at all. The phone has a non-existent battery life and the ring-vibrate just vibrates. I bought the phone six months ago after my Ericsson T29 was stolen under rather unpleasant circumstances. I have constantly regretted my decision. (read more)

It is money well spent. I've had my samsung sgh-r200s for at least a year. It is still fine I think I will stick to this for a while. I am glad I bought it because it has a very good battery life and it hasn't given me any trouble since. But the ony bad point is I can't find anywhere to get decent ringtones for my melody composer. Email me if anyone has any problems about the samsung sgh-r200s and I will try to help. Thankz mat. (read more)

Let's face it.....compared to the Nokia 3315, this Samsung SGH-R220 phone sucks. I had a Nokia 5110i before I bought this one; the only minus point about that model is its weight. No other complaints at all. Delivers all that it promises. This model was released in India with a very catchy advertisement. But it looks to be a hastily designed model, made to order for the gullible Indian public. (read more)

I am surpised that Samsung is able to build such a good quality mobile phone as the SGH-R220. The reception tends to weaken once I am in a lift. But the same problem is encountered in other handphones like Motorola and Siemens. The text is clear and LCD constrast is excellent. I don't need to switch on the backlight. I love the styling with right amount of chrome to give that executive look. (read more)

All in all a good phone but the price :( (read more)

The Samsung R220, for its price and function, is one of the ideal mobile phones to have if you want to be different from the rest of the Filipino race. The country declared Nokia to be the runaway winner but sooner or later people will get sick of wearing the nokia uniform. I think that the cheap frill is over. Samsung R220 looks fresh and I think that the design and built is perfect for the Asian hand.
Calls are becoming cheaper already. Pretty soon, people will get sick and tired of... (read more)

What more can you wish for? The Samsung SGH-R220 phone has almost everything that is new in the small package with a reasonable price.

Heck, you might be even able to use it as a torchlight!!! :) (read more)

Traded in my Nokia 6210 for the Samsung SGH R220 mobile phone - No regrets! Voice quality, reception and clarity superior than Nokia phones. Large screen helps. Blue color is fantastic, but wish the set had a back light dim feature - the light is over-powering at night. :)
Not as user-friendly as a Nokia, but comes close. An excellent set for the price.

This handphone is great especially the blue screen that's different from the other handphones. The blue screen is bright and the colour of the blue is attractive. Besides that, this handphone contains a lot of functions. The owner can also compose melodies, sends picture messages, connect to WWW, and a lot more. I love this handphone a lot. (read more)

This Samsung mobile phone looks cool. It has a bright blue backlight which looks out of the world. The animated image display (when the flap is closed) is great. In fact it should be made customizable. The antenna is a big sore. I would have given 10 for this mobile phone if it didn't have an antenna protruding out. (read more)
