Re: Bell First to Offer the Samsung Instinct in Canada

Just got the bell instinct , seriously thinking of taking it back:

Pros looks great, big screen. Loud ringers and sounds.Comes with 2GB Memory card, expandable upto 8GB, you can transfer songs from pc to the memory card .

CONS: Not able to sync with a pc.
Can not load your own ringtones only can use a pay per use service.
Not able to use or load personal ringsones.
Touch screen freezes.
Poorly designed internal software.
Too much of the preloaded applications lead you to screens to sign up for a cost ie. the GPS is payper use, and so is the FREE 250 songs preloaded onto the 2GB card you have to pay to hear them but free for 1 month .
Extra to use windows live other email supported...
Browser has no address bar to add urls..
Pay to use Bells back up Manager .. again you can not hook up to pc and back up Bell has castrated this phone it coiuld be great but Bell has taken advantage of its customers with this phone

This phone lacks the abilities of the iphones quick and smooth opperation of the touch screen, lacks syncing software for seems to be set up for further cash grab
with Bell you have 15 days to return phone if you have less than 6 hours of talk time
use your instinct it is not a PDA it is not a IPHONE it lacks a interface for the pc .Should u get it ? Only if you like being locked out of your phones files and want to pay for the full functionality you get with other phones like the htc touch,
You may choose only one
