    I am not satisfied to use this handset(w259). Beacuse this handset not suport many mp4 video file,not suport any thims or display’s graphics quality very poor other than samsung 3310 handset and so inportant function was MOBILE TRECAR. That was have not this handset. so all over I think this handset was so costly.

  • diwakar gupta September 11, 2010 12:05 pm

    although schw259 is a good phone.but it have no dial up connection with PC. there are fewer software to be downloaded. very costly in comparison with others. GSM & CDMA voice calls are on the same key it is very difficult to change setting every time for dialing. i m not satisfied. this model is not enrolled in Samsung catalogs where download facility is available.

    I have Samsung SCH-W259, and I think it’s latest mobile u have launched, but I want the CDMA and GSM combination with Quatikeepade. That I think u don’t have. And the Samsung SCH-W259 DUAS has don’t have on mobile9.com also. For that we did not download any software from that webside.

  • Manikanth August 6, 2010 8:09 pm

    I don’t think the battery back up is that much good as expected and i just want to know is there call Conference in this mobile or not?
    Please help!!!

  • dr.mukesh sharma May 3, 2010 6:01 pm

  • karthik March 15, 2010 3:36 pm

    Free minutes on tata Indicom is for segmented base and not for customers who upgrade to samsung handset.

  • IG March 8, 2010 10:24 am

  • rajiev March 8, 2010 9:43 am

  • amit dubey March 7, 2010 10:54 pm

    except television market samsung has been failed to produce quality products as mobiles mp3 players dvd players etc…some of them u used, and been the victim of faulty products, now i dont believe in samsung at all, i feel very scare when i think to buy any product of samsung, mobile which i was using named samsung champ was the worst mobile i saw ever( functions are there but no working and not user friendly).Go either for nokia or sony ericsson…these are far better than in the field of mobile handsets….

  • vinay March 7, 2010 10:35 pm

    duotouch is meaningless as its not omh handset inspite of price of 10000+. duo 256 seems better. but still if one want to go for ‘flexi’ sim,(it can b cdma/gms or gsm/gsm) go for airfone 31 at less than 5000.

  • Prasath J March 7, 2010 7:41 pm

    Duos256 seems better option.. Duos touch only has 2MPx cam (comparing 1.3 of Duos259) and touchscreen that actually draws more power from the same 1140mAh battery of 2 handsets…

  • saket March 7, 2010 6:56 pm

    Both are good handset, worth buying it,

    Also tata offer is value for money for existing customer

  • Sandy March 7, 2010 6:28 pm

    It is not Over Market Handset it is Open Market Handset. With this user can insert any operator’s sim and they will get internet settings directly from the operator. There is no need to buy it from the operators.

  • Avishek March 7, 2010 6:25 pm

    Waiting for more EvDo ENABLE(Not only Rev-0,But with Rev-A)samsung handsets with budget from 4000-15000 INR……
