On second thought it is unfair to give this phone 5 out of 10 so I will revise my review
Fido gets 0 out of 10 for butchering this great little phone
Samsung gets 10 out of 10 for making a dangerous crossover phone that alot of people want but no carrier wants to sell.
The SGH-F266 has all the features 90% of the people want and they are all well implemented except PC Studio. It is much better than phones in its class and it is so good it can compete against much more expensive and complicated phones which make the carrier much more money because data services are so overpriced in Canada. With a little more development the SGH-F266 could be all the phone most people need.
To make it to prime time this phone needs:
1) To be able to synch with Outlook like it is supposed to
2) Mobile Master support (I have already contacted the dev)
3) The Fido/Rogers crippling removed
4) POP3 support and POP3 service that is reasonably priced
This phone reminds me of the superb camera, the FZ-30 made by Panasonic. It did everything well and all it needed was some sensor development to make the camera better in low light to make it all the camera almost anybody needed. Development on this line was quashed because the suits wanted to push the more profitable DSLs and sell lenses. It became an orphan product.
