Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite Review

I was recently able to try out Samsung's new budget phone that I'm positively sure they're aiming to be in competition with the LG KP500 Cookie. The Samsung Tocco Lite or more commonly known as the Samsung S5230 in other countries, is Samsung's cheapest budget phone.





Design


The front of the Samsung Tocco Lite reminds me of the LG KP500 Cookie while the back of the device brings to mind my Samsung Omnia. This phone has a 3 inch screen with 256k colors. There are 3 physical keys in the front and I would have really preferred a directional pad so that I can easily go back a few words in case I misspelled something while writing a text message instead of touching the display but Samsung opted to copy the annoying back button that can be found on the Tocco Ultra Touch. Like Samsung's other mobile phones, you have to remove the battery in order to insert the microSD slot.


Performance and Features


Again, as with other Samsung phones, the Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite makes use of the TouchWiz interface. The interface is very similar to the Samsung Tocco Ultra except that the Tocco Lite has a resistive touchscreen which means you have to press your fingers hard in order to get it to respond. Interface is a bit laggy though it seems faster than the LG Cookie but I can't really compare as I don't have the LG KP500 anymore to make the comparison. Although both the LG Cookie and the Samsung Tocco Lite makes use of widgets, I find Samsung's widgets more useable.


What's new on the Tocco Lite mobile phone is that it can have three different homescreens which you can customize according to your liking. There's also the new contacts list that reminds you of Cover Flow where you flip through photos to dial your contact's number. Another cool feature is gesture lock which allows you to open applications while unlocking your phone just by drawing an alphabet letter on the screen.


The Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite has a 3.2 megapixel camera with the usual Samsung camera phone goodies such as face detection and smile detection, unfortunately, there's no autofocus here. The camera produces clear photos especially outdoors but there's noticeable noise when taking pictures indoors.


Audio quality using the headphones and Bluetooth Stereo headsets is good but unfortunately, I can't say the same when using the speakers. Audio becomes tinny when played using the highest volume setting but is okay when in the mid-level.


Since this is a budget phone, the Samsung Tocco Lite doesn't have 3G or HSDPA so you just have to make do with EDGE connection. This will seem a bummer to some but it could raise the battery life of this mobile phone ten folds compared with its other brother, the S5600 which has 3G/HSDPA.


Conclusion


Depending on the price of the Samsung Tocco Lite, the LG Cookie may have a competition. Although both mobile phones are similar in almost all hardware specifications, the addition of more camera features on the Samsung S5230 Tocco Lite might make it appeal more to other people. Of course, there's no denying that style-wise, the LG Cookie has the upper hand over the Samsung Tocco Lite. I guess it would really depend now on which feature would appeal to you most.

    I am thinking about getting this phone. That, or the LG Cookie. It's funny though, because on the Carphone Warehouse website, it says that it doesn't have touchscreen. However, it must have, because there aren't many buttons.
    Could you confirm if this phone has touchscreen or not? I'm looking for a phone with a touchscreen ya see.

    I don't know what's wrong with carphonewarehouse. This is the second comment I got this month informing me that their phone information is severely misguided. How can this not be a touchscreen phone?! Anyways, since I wasn't able to take any detailed pictures, try searching through YouTube for S5230 and you'll see that this is a touchscreen device.

    Maybe you've seen a different model? Samsung has been using the name "tocco" a lot on their products but as far a I know, all three of their Tocco phones are touchscreen capable.

    The S5230 is cheaper than the Cookie in my country. It's a bit slow but for that price, can't complain.

    I have a Tocco lite and you don't have to press your fingers hard on the screen to get a response, it's very responsive. I had a Nokia 5800 which was a lot less responsive than the Tocco lite, although it had more features. The Tocco Lite is an excellent phone.

    My mum got this phone 2 days ago and it is great! It's not fun or anything though - it's entertaining the first few hours then it seems like a normal phone you get for 40 pounds (omly it has a touch screen!)

    I recently bought this phone, love the way it looks and it's features but my one seem to have a serious problem. It cuts your voice during the phone call, so the person on the end of the line can't hear half of what you say. I can still hear them, but it goes completely silent for them for a couple of seconds. This keeps happening quite a few times during all the calls I've made. I was wondering if it's just me or has anyone else experienced this problem?

    i have had the same problem with the people on the other side of the phonecall not being able to hear me. it is a huge problem as i have people from jobs calling me and they think i'm being ignorant, it is really annoying, i swapped my phone for another one (same model) and this does it too!!! i'm going to change it again and if the next one does the same then i'll be swapping for a different model.

     
  12. Lila |

    I have swapped the handset 3 times now and still have the same problem with it cutting and the people on the other side of the phone call not being able to hear me. I've got all 3 handsets from Carphone wharehouse so not sure if it's a batch of faulty handsets that they have or if it's something else. My sim seems to work fine on other (non-Tocco Lite) handsets so it's not a network problem.

    Maybe you've set the mute button while holding the phone to your ear. Try playing with the volume controls when you're talking with someone or see if the mute button wasn't accidentally pushed.

    I got this a couple of week ago from The Carphone Warehouse. I was originally going in to buy the LG Cookie, but the man at the desk said he wouldn't sell me it because they're rubbish. He said that only 5% of the cookies he's sold have been "good". The others have been returned to the shop.

    So i decided on the samsung tocco lite. I LOVE IT. It's really fun to use too. Ace phone for cheap price!

    I have been using this phone for 2 weeks - the best phone I have ever had. Extremly responsive touch screen (do not need a stylus), good picture quality even with shaky hands, easy to text on, easy to use, only problem is getting the back off. Ringtones and calling are extremly loud. Love it, love it love it - looks so much more expensive and stylish than the cookie!

    I've had three Samsung Tocco Lites in 2 days. All from Carphonewarehouse and all with the same problem. The person on the other end of the call can't hear me several times in a conversation when I am talking, although I can hear them fine.
    Carphonewarehouse refused to give me a refund in the shop and I had to call customer services to get this allowed.
    Taking the third phone back tomorrow and going back to my old phone which works fine.
    AVOID!!!!!

    I am Thinking about getting this phone or the LG Cookie. I want an entertainment phone as I am an entertaining person. So which one is better. Cookie or Lite ?

     
  24. Angela |

    Bought the tocco lite last week for 119.99 from the carphone warehouse.I was thinking about the lg cookie,but a lot of the reviews weren't that good.Apparently the tocco lite is newer than the cookie so a lot less teething problems hopefully.It's so easy to use.texting is good,camera is fine lots of good features.Be careful when you are taking the back off it!!! I haven't had any problems with it.Just remember to lock it after every use!!! I think it is well worth the money.

    Why not give it a shot. If it cuts of calls, you can always return it to vodafone and get a better phone like the Samsung Blade or Samsung Jet.

    I've had this phone a week, at first i loved it, it's a great phone which is very easy to use and the touch screen is brilliant. The only major problem I've had with this phone, has been making and receiving calls!! It cuts out and has done so on every single call that i make or receive, the person on the other side can't hear me but i can hear them. this goes on for a few seconds and it's very annoying. I'm returning mine to carphone warehouse.

     
  30. BRIAN |

    I've had three, all from the carphone warehouse on o2, all have had the same problem with the mic cutting out during calls. I sent it back to Samsung for repair and it came back supposedly fixed but still with the same fault. It's now too late to get a refund and all I can do is keep sending it back for repair until one day it might work. It would be a great phone if you could actually use it for calls!

    I am waiting for my Tocco Lite to arrive, as a replacement for a (what I thought was a broken) G600!! Whilst making and receiving calls, I was experiencing what everyone else is experiencing - calls going dead, but still being on the call????? I am on 02 network. So maybe it is the 02 network rather than out handsets? Just a thought? As like I said I had a G600 not a Tocco?

    I Tried This Phone Out Today !! I Love It going back to buy it later this month. I think it really is your luck with the calls cutting out ! becuase i have a samsung U600 and sometimes that happens but not all the time, and all photos on samsungs are slow to look at! Nothing is perfect in life ! Just like phones wont be! You know for what your paying for your getting a very stylish phone with good spefications!

    aparently the calls being cutting off is an error when you get the phone on o2.

    to solve it, make sure you get the proper o2 settings for the phone, you can do this by downloading them from somewhere on the phone.

    i am thinking of buying this phone on vodafone . can anyone tell me if you have had the problem of calls cutting off on this network ? please write back !

    You can try visiting Vodafone's forums and asking people there if they have the Tocco Lite and if they've experienced the same problems.

    hi all! re: probs with phone, I have had 3 tocco lite handsets all from carphone warehouse on o2 and all of them had the problem, cutting out my side of conversation several times, and have just returned the last one for a refund. I have looked into this and apparently it is the o2 software on the phone that causes this; nothing seems to be being done about this despite hundreds of people reporting this problem and yet the carphone warehouse continue to sell them and are presumably not allowed to tell their customers about this. I don't think anyone have had probs who have bought it on orange, vodafone or tmobile, the software on these must be fine.so if you're thinking of buying it on o2 from carphone warehouse DO NOT waste your time or money, and everyone else, get a refund as soon as you can, you should not have to put up with it *sarah*

    I was having trouble wether to get the LG COOKIE or the SAMSUNG TOCCO LITE, but im sooooo glad i got this one, i think its by far better! I got it like a week ago from an Orange shop and i love it! Its takes good photos and is good for photo editing. Its really stylish, slim and easy to use. I personally havnt had any problems with the phone being cut off at the over end or whatever. Its easy to text and the touchscreen is brill! I would reccomend it to anyone wanting a stylish phone.

    All phones from Carphone Warehouse are unlocked and don't have any branded software from any of the mobile companies whether it be O2, T-Mobile or whoever.
    The problem is NOT with the phone but with the O2 Sim cards. For some reason they don't seem to work with the Tocco firmware.
    I have now heard of problems with O2 cards in some other phones and it all seems to be linked to the problems that O2 have been having on their network recently.
    The Samsung Tocco Lite phone is perfectly ok....it's just an O2 firmware problem so if you want to buy the phone then go ahead and buy it....unless you are on O2.
    If you are then ask them for a new SIM card with the latest firmware on it.

    my cousin has this phone on vodafone and it is working perfectly when you call people. the only thing is that you have to remember is to lock it when you are putting it in ur pocket or bag because it easily calls people when it is not locked.the only question that i have is, how good is the battery life??x:)

    Im really thinking about getting the Tocco Lite but some people say its a horrible phone? I really want a good stylish touchscreen phone for a reasonable price, so I was drawn to the Tocco Lite, but I don't want it if I'm going to have problems.

    I think that this phone looks great, with the picture quality being 3.2MP and having a 50MB memory it also sounds great! I'd really like it as my new phone, and I have started getting excited as my parents and I are deciding if I should get it for my birthday :D.

    i bought mine from carphone warehouse. i was told all tocco lites are open 2 any network it's just the sim that belongs to the network. i'm on t mobile but i bought it on vodaphone cause it was £30 cheaper. then i put my t mobile sim it works fine. my advice is buy online at carphone on vodaphone.

    Hi

    I have read all these reviews and really i have concluded these pros and cons

    Pros - good touchscreen, reasonable price,not come with any contract,camera is good

    Cons - calls seem to get cut off in between, phone can get unlock very easily

    I am also planning to but this phone but only point that is restricting me to buy it - calls getting cut off in between ....

    i was wondering whether it is a network problem OR phone problem OR it was just few phone sets were faulty .....

    need advice on this ..

    I got dis fone a week ago and I absolutely love it. I know some people have had trouble with da calls and it cuttin off but I tink it is just a faulty batch from carphone warehouse. If u cant figure out which fone 2 buy between cookie and tocco lite, I recamend u get da tocco. It is rly responsive and has great picture and good sound and txt and is just an all round great fone.

    Hi Amyyyyyyyy. As what the others have said, most are having problems with phones coming from carphone warehouse and O2 sim. The phone itself doesn't seem to have any problems with other networks so maybe you should try getting one on another network.

    Just a precaution since it seems the problems have been isolated only on the O2 network.

(btw im so eager to get it because im stuck with a vodafone samsung SGH-X680V, and for those of u without any imagination, its bull ****. so i cant wait to buy one) PLEASE WAIT FOR ME SAMSUNG

    i got this phone 2 days ago from O2 shop on O2 and was on the phone for 1hr and it never cut off so it might have been a bad batch on O2 to carphone warehouse

    hii i got this phone last week for my birthday i have it a week today i got it a few days early :D
    anyway i got it on meteor and my mam and dad bought it from the carphone ware house again on meteor not o2
    anybody thinking of getting it on o2 i would say go ahead and get it if you like just keep your own sim card i think it is just the new sims that they give you that doesnt work andway if it doesnt work you can always bring it back

    the one that i got i have to say is probly the best phone that i have ever gotten and i have gotton alot of phones in my life
    everything is brillent on it :D
    if you get it allways put on the lock so importent :D
    when you first get it its like all phone abit hard to use but after awhile you just get used to it :D
    but be carful opening the back of the phone very hard to open and i say would be easy to brack if you keep messing with it
    with my one i didnt get a memery card the shop will try and sell you one but if you have a phone already you would probly have one with that :D

    for safty if i was you i would defenly buy a cover bag for them if you ask the person in the shop they will no what you mean
    its much more better than the LG COOKIE my cusin got one and the pink and everything on them doesnt look that nice and the samsung tocco lite is an over all better phone

    bye for now hope this information is anygood to anybody

    bye...

    I am thinking of getting this phone rather soon, and i was wondering if it would be worth while? also it would have to be on pay as you go, and i have seen a deal on 'phones4u' website saying it is £78 with orange. does anyone know if i get it from the phone4u shop or website, would i still get the same deals i would get if i got it from the orange shop or website? eg: orange wednesdays,dolphin package,and especailly free facebook,bebo etc.

    would be a great help to me if anyone could help me, as it would be saying me money :)
    thanks & replys would be much appreciated :)

    Reply to Anonymous Aug 27: I have seen this phone on dial-a-phone (there are some good deals at the moment) but did you buy yours on O2??? I'd be very interested to know this as i've had a few faulty ones from carphone warehouse and i really dont want to go through that again. i've had to go back to my 3 yr old well used phone :( and there aren't any others that are similar in spec and price.

    Also i dont think it would have anything to do with old or new sim cards cuz carphone w.h give new ones but i used my 6 yr old sim card (pay monthly) and still had the cut out problem

    thanks for any replies and anyone else got theirs from dial-a-phone on o2

    iyaa every one! im thinkin about saving up 4 this phone on vodaphone.. from the vodaphone shop. but tbh i reali cant decide weather to get a LG viewty instead? im spoilt for choice haha.

    i cant wait to get this phone, but i hope i dont have any problems with it.

    Was thinking about getting this phone, haven't yet.
    On a lot of other reviews it mentions the same problem with calls, bought from carphone warehouse and on o2.
    Maybe people should buy from somewhere else??
    Even if it costs a little more, surely it's worth it??

    yeah, mine cuts out too. Thought I was going mad!Can't call peaple back if it's an 'unknown' call. Very annoying. I'm not with O2 and didn't get mine from the carphonewarehouse. Is it repairable?

    heya, if its any consalation, had this phone 4 2 months, and its fab!! hasn't been cutting off, im on orange but it does cut of on o2, so i would reccomend o2 users to "beaware." lol! its a good touchscreen, responsive and sensetive, but not too sensetive, and ppl who are asking the question, coookie or tocco lite, tocco lite defo! i used to have a cookie, constant freezing, broken screen etc. GO FOR THE TOCCO LITE!! you won't regret it! ;)

    ive read a tonne of reviews for this phone, it seems like the 'cutting off' seems so be a very large issue. Mostly if the phone is from O2 or bought from the carphone warehouse.
    I'm going to look for a better phone with better reviews before i make my choice.

    I am thinking of getting this phone but when I spoke to the guy in phones4u I asked him if I could check my emails on it and he said yes but it's really expensive and it will cost you loads. I have a yahoo email account and only want to check now and again when I'm not near my computer, can anyone tell me if it is scary price wise to use the internet on the tocco (i'll be on vodafone pay as you go)

    Just get a web bolt on or something.

    I have o2 simplicity which is basically pay and go only it comes out of my bank by direct debit each month. For £20/month, I get 1000 texts & 600mins to any network, plus unlimted web usage.

    This means I can sign onto msn, and stay signed onto it constantly, I can use google maps, youtube, email, bebo etc etc as much as I like. All this included for £20 is fantastic.

    I am thinking of getting the lite for my birthday cos it's cheap good looking and stylish. It seams to me that all the ones which r cutting off r coming from carphone so I might get mine from vodaphone and see wot happens. It looks like a good phone. Has anyone got it from vodafone ?? If so does it cut out?? If not I think carephone have had a faulty batch!! Thankx x

    I have a LG Cookie, after a few weeks, about 3 or soo, the sound stopped working, if would play music but no sound, also if someone called you there was no sound as well. It is my birthday and christmas coming up and i am very interested in the tocco lite pink, it seems nearly the same but if you pay just a little more you get a better camera and a reliable brand.

    Hi defo want this phone as a replacement for a broken sony ericsson w595. i have a contract on 3. the only place i think you can get it unlocked is carphone warehouse? Does it break if you get it from there and how much is it to get it with no sim and unlocked?

    Thanks

    i love the phone!! but on a tesco tariff would it cut calls of ???

     
  102. Anonymous |

    The answer to most of your questions would be: Not all calls will get cut off it has nothing to do with Samsung's handset being faulty. It's the 02 network. So if you are on 02 and are planning to buy this, get it with a sim also, but on a different network.

    Hope this helped.

    I got this phone 2 days ago, i love it,its a great mobile phone, i got the white one. The only thing that REALLY bugs me about the phone is that when u ring someone or someone rings u the phone automatically locks itself and u have to keep ur finger on the unlock button at the side to unlock it. Not very good if you press a button and ring someone by mistake cause by the time u unlock the screen, the person has already answered your call. Does anyone know how to change the settings so that when i wanna call or someone calls me, i dont have to unlock the screen??? please send me an email cause i wont be back on this site. starkamylisa@hotmail.co.uk

    everyones sayin about the calls.? it cuts you off or something well heres how to fix it

    for O2 users: Try going to Menu - Applications - O2 - Get Settings. Install the settings you are sent and reset the phone

    OR TRY

    go to settings, network settings and for network mode select GSM 900/1800

    hope this helps :]

    I have got this phone on o2 and it has never cut out during calls. (obviously i didnt buy it from the carphone warehouse- no way!) I bought it in pink from mphone.co.uk unlocked and i am really pleased with it; I did have to pay more for it (about £150). I also asked o2 to send me a new sim card (which was free). i was really wary about getting another tocco lite after having cut out problems with 3 others i got from carphone w, but a friend recommended me to mphone, and if there are any problems, you can return it and the phones come with a 2year warranty which is good so i didnt mind paying the extra, and was more confident in buying this phone. hope this helps others who want the phone on o2 :)

    RIGHT lets get this sorted everyone has heard about and is moaning about the o2/samsung screw-up with the software on the sim this is all it is!! GET ANOTHER SIM FROM O2 !!!
    The Tocco Lite is an amazing phone for the petty price of £82 with discount which you can only get from o2 btw, (( they give you the average you have toped up by over the last three months as discount)).
    Screen is easy to use although yes, it can need a bit of firmness from time to time, SO WHAT? FABULOUS PHONES..... And yes it does deff have a touch screen any idiot can see that! And NO it does not have a stylus pen!

    This phone isnt that good. The phone has a really light metallic colour. The batterie life isnt really good. The screensavers aint that nice. There is a big bar. The touch sence isnt really good. When i click on music it takes me to videos. Ive gave mine back but stupid carphone warehouse didnt take it back so im stuck with the stupid phone. Its a terrible phone i vote it 1.5 stars. I think next time i will buy a LG phone or a motorola phone instead of crap samsung and i think i will buy the phone from orange they might take the phone back if they dont i guess i will move to china!

    Who ever said they wanted to use a stylus on it, dont. It may SCRATCH and you can see the scratch when the phone is switched on. It happened to my LG Cookie. The tocco lite is a great phone btw, very smart. It would be a shame to scratch it.

    I'm 11 years old and I realy want to get either the LG Cookie or the Samsung Tocco Lite. But ... i've not heard many good reviews about it. So I don't know whether to get it or not. My mum says she isn't wasting her money on something that'll break easily. Also i've just read previous posts and reviews and a lot of people are having the cutting out problem. (Is the cutting out during call problem Tocco Lite or LG Cookie?) I mean... I want a touch screen and I want internet and stuff but it had route finder and stupid stuff on it that I SOOO don't need. Which other phone can I get? All my friends have cool touchscreens and Tocco Lite and LG Cookie look realy cool but ... I guess if you download loadsa stuff on it then you get more problems? And I won't need to download harldly anything onto it ... ARGH! I don't know what to do. HELP! :L

    Its a really good phone! I'm gutted that I broke it at a gig :( the only bad thing is, that camera seriously needs a flash, if it has a flash, I would have rated it 5/5, but because it has no flash, its going to have to be 4/5.

    I had this phone from carphone warehouse, im on an o2 pay montly sim only contract. After having this phone for a month it started doing the cutting out during calls problem and it doesnt happen when i put the vodaphone sim card in so its a firmware problem. Carphone warehouse wont do anything but constantly send it for repair its a joke. The phone itself is ok, but the vibrate on it is very weak. I tried the changing the o2 settings trick and it didnt work so looks like ive wasted £100. Avoid this phone if you are on o2.

    I'm getting the tocco for my birthday. I was a bit torn between the cookie and tocco but after reading all these reviews I decided to go with the tocco.I'm thinking of getting it on o2 but NOT through carphone warehouse. Will the calling glitch still be there or is it just on carphone?

    i recently purchased the tocco lite. it is exelent value for money. and yes it does have touchscreen. however i have had a few problems. 1st the unlocking button is sometimes unresponsive and i cannot get onto the phone when i want to
    2nd it is sometimes very slow and takes a while to respond
    and finally scrolling through songs and other things is difficult but that could be because i am not yet use to it.
    on the plus side it is alot more stylish than the lg cookie and the quality of the camera appears to be alot better.
    (i have owned both phones)

    hii
    no i strongly dont think that it is the carphone ware house, see;
    i got my phone in the car phone ware house the tocco is a brill phone i got it in augest and i still hav it now it is the best phone i have ever had
    i really do think that it is just the o2 network or the o2 sim card that doesnt work with this phone

    as i said its not the carphone ware house there ok its just the o2
    hope the is anygd info for anybody

    I have got this phone, and i think it is brilliant. Whoever is guna get this phone over the LG cookie, you should get it. Because it responds more than the cookie and the cookie is really slow. My friend has got one and when she goes to read a message it wont let you see the message until like 15 seconds later, but with the tocco lite, it will come up straight away. All this is my point of veiw but honestly it's a brilliant phone with all the applications and the widgets.


    Hope i helped. :)

    I recently bought the tacco lite and was using it on 02. The calls were 'cutting out'. The problem is not the phone it is the 02 network. You have to change the 'network' settings and the problem will be solved. Since doing this the phone works fine.

    KS360[whoever asked]
    I've had my LG KS360 for the past year and recently its completely messed up; unfortunately because of o2s 1 year warranty they won't refund.Easy to use and was good while it lasted, as far as i've seen not as good as the Tocco although it depends on whether you want a Qwerty keypad or touchscreen. For both I'd advise buying a cover or some sort of water protection for the KS360.

    Is the Tocco still having issues with cut out? Even with using a new SIM card or just with old ones?
    Or is it to do with o2 not the SIM?

    I have had this phone for just over a week, it is a nice looking phone and easy to use but it has some bugs in the software which cause lock up and cant do anything until the battery has been removed.

    #1. If the camera is set to video and the camera button is pressed it locks up.

    #2. If the alarm clock goes off and you press some strange button sequence (dont know what was half asleep at the time) it locks up.

    #3. The unlock gesture doesnt always work, I have it set to "E" most of the time it works, but after phone has been locked for > 24 hours it says unrecognized character. You have to press the unlock button to unlock then it all works again.

    #4. When in a call and wanting the keypad on screen to dial extra numbers i.e. for telephone bank, the keypad does not always appear, sometimes have to end the call and redial to get it to work.

    My smasung software NPS update says its version 1.1.2 ID3 and if I do an update device, it says device not supported.

    @ last ANONYMOUS: Try downloading Opera mini by going to mini.opera.com on your browser. You not being able to sign in might be a browser issue on the Tocco's side. The Opera Mini browser should be able to handle sites like hotmail. Unless of course you're not able to go to ANY site in that case, your internet settings might be the problem.

    Anyone who has the problem with the cutting off during calls on O2 it was a firmware problem and I dont think any of the newer ones have the problem. After taking mine back to get repaired for the third time carephone warehouse finally upgraded the firmware and now after 6 months I can finally enjoy a phone call with no cutting off!

    The problem i have is that i have now got a bluetooth headset, when i connect the phone to it the screen just shows 'bluetooth connected' and i cant use the screen to call out or anything!! whats that all about??? has anyone else had this problem or is it just me? Also, it keeps turning off and on again, sometimes its just if i take it out of my pocket and put it on the table so its not like im dropping it?!?!? any ideas???

    @Anonymous, January 8: You should take it back to where you got it from and see if they can fix it. Of course, it's not covered by the warranty so expect to pay for the costs.

    @Anonymous, January 9: Try search for "Java games" That should work for the Tocco Lite. Some websites are offering free java games from your mobile phones.

    @Anonymous, January 10: What kind of Bluetooth headset are you using? Maybe it's not compatible.

    Hi, I have the earpeice type bluetooth, says its compatable but its not having it, bought one of them 'plug in to cigarette lighter speaker type bluetooth' now and its working fine with that! very odd! lol

    To Anon Jan 18th: I too am on 02 payg and like i said in my previous note i have had no problems whatsoever with making or recieving calls no cutting out or anything, i got mine from an 02 shop and i seems that most of the ones that are not working properly were from carphone warehouse... maybe just a few dodgy batches??? Hope this helps :o)

    I have just purchased a samsung s5230 from carphone warehouse, but have now changed it three times, and have had the same problem with them all. i.e the battery will only last about 10 hours switched on but being used from a full charge of 8 hrs, carphone warehouse refuse to give me a refund or the option to change to a different model, saying that I am the only one having this problem out of all the s5230 phones sold. Is there anyone else out there that is having this problem with the s5230.

    The battery life on my Tocco Lite is not great either, though not as bad as the last comment; I don't use the phone a great deal, maybe half an hour a day max, but it still needs charging every couple of days.

    Hi, I'm thinking of getting this phone but I've read all the comments about calls cutting out if you buy it on the o2 network from carphone warehouse. I was just wondering, will this happen if i buy it from an actual o2 shop?

    I too am thinking of buying a Tocco lite and I was browsing around to check the pros and cons then I got onto this page.
    The problem of the line cutting off every now and then got me worried since this happen exclusively to O2 users and I am one of them...
    Found this info to solve the problem:

    - Go to menu
    - then application
    - then O2
    - then Get settings

    - install the settings you will be sent
    - restart your phone

    I do not know what it's worth since I didn't get my phone yet but I've made a note of it just in case...

    How do i override having to press the hold button during a call to use the keypad.? As this is a nightmare when you have a number option to press when asked.

    I have the same problem. When you dial an 1-800 number from address book or call log and you get a prompt to enter further numbers, you need the key pad but the key pad will not appear unless you press and hold the HOLD KEY. Then you need to press the keypad icon to get the keypad. This is an extra step and takes time and you may time out to enter the response especially if you are using the calling cards.

    Reeaally bad phone. Dont recommend. Poor touch screen. turns itself off and i have only had it 6 months! AWFUL PHONE. the only thing good about it is the battery life.

    I've had this phone for four months now and it is still great! I love the widgets and all the different options, and the camera is great! The touch screen is extremely responsive and it's extremely easy to type messages! I've found that the music, with earphones, is good but without earphones it can become quite tinny sounding :/ I adore the photo contacts app and the organiser is super! I love all the little apps which you get with the phone and the bluetooth is really responsive. From what I've seen, problems seem to be happening with phones bought from the carphone warehouse on O2?! so I'd stay clear of them, tesco mobile's good with the triple credit deal on pay as you go (what I'm on) The internet can be a bit slow but it is copable. The smart unlock blew me away (previously I'd had an ancient phone) and all the different call settings and security is really secure! There's even things to change if you're left or right handed for easy access! If I were you, I'd definitely get this phone; I'm not too sure of the prices now but when I got mine it was only £40 and with all the features it is definitely worth buying!

    i got this phone at the end of january and when i bash it off something depending how hard it is, it will reset its self and when the battery is low, if its turned off it turns on to tell me its low, it got to the point where i took my battery out cos it was annoying me at school. now i dropped it about 10cm from the floor today and it reset itself then turned back off, it took me 5 minutes to get it to work, it did this 2 weeks ago and it took me 1 hour to get it to work. i bashed it off the wall earlier and now it wont stay on without plugging it in. its starting to annoy me now cos i dont have a phone now

    at first when i got this phone 7 months ago i thought it was a good phone, it was the best phone id had, tbh it still is the best ive had compared to the other ones ive had in a way but it would restart itself when i bashed it or something, i had problems with it turning off at onepoint so i sent it off to get fixed, the problem was fixed and the phone was returned within a week. now it comes up with messages like incorrect character when i touch the screen when its locked and calls people by itself, it doesnt turn off itself anymore evenw when i dropped it on the floor in a street today it still stayed on but with the faults on the phone that i am having i reccoment you to buy something else, its not worth bothering with.
