  11. darn! i want it! 11K is just a cheap price!!! what the.. me want one..
    i have a question.. will it really cost 11,990? coz some stores add prices except for the other special additional stuff.. you get what i mean? LOL.. still can't wait.. thanks thanks much! :*

    ReplyDelete
  12. P11,990.00 is the suggested retail price (SRP). If retailers will go over that without adding extras, you're better off buying it from Samsung stores or officially licensed retailers in most SM malls.

    If you happen to stumble upon a Corby Pro in Greenhills, it's probably an India released version.

  13. Is there a significant difference between an India and Philippine released version?

    ReplyDelete
  14. what a handsome phone! I'll buy it if only for its looks. but when you consider the specs you are getting, it becomes all the more amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Its already available in Greenhills, 9k+ is the price..

    ReplyDelete
  25. is this true?..corby pro is already available in grinhils for only 9k+?..

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow. This is really cheap. I'm getting confused with prices! Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  27. CAN ANYBODY CONFIRM IF THIS PHONE IS ALREADY AVAILABLE IN GREENHILLS FOR ONLY 9K+, IN WAT SPECIFIC STORE?..

    ReplyDelete
  28. ofcourse they wont silly. greenhills phones are next to illegal, and is bad for samsung so ofcourse they wont tell you if its available. on another note i bets its real worth the price. ill make sure to get myself one.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Not yet available in Greenhills....cellfone tiangge stores are passing of the Corby 3410 slider as the corby pro for 7.5K....no store in greenhills has it and the stoopid tinderas dont know what the heck it is....

    ReplyDelete
  30. not all tiangge has it,only found 2 tiangge stalls that sells it. you guys can check on the bridgeway stores, if i remember i think the shop name has the word "city" on it, just forgot the complete name.. they sell it for 9k flat there.. made sure its Corby pro and not the B3410, but they currently have no stocks.. they said that they really didnt order much from their supplier

    ReplyDelete
  31. bridgeway stores?..is this stores in greenhills?..i have 2 get one asap coz they myt increase d price as d demands from consumers will also rise sooner or l8r...i hope smebody can give d exact location and price wer we can find this corby pro...

    ReplyDelete
  32. argh i cant wait for the release...but im torn wheter to buy it as soon as release bec its either they increase the price or lower it down while the demand is high..any word yet if it's already released?

    ReplyDelete
  33. No fair! I just bought a new samsung corby gt-s3653 and hadn't seen this new one yet.

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMGOMG! I just hope my mom would by this for me! Even if it's not the same phone 2PM is promoting, this one's better!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Anyone knows if this phone will work in Korea?

    My friend and I are planning to go there this summer and I am a dummy when it comes to gadgets and gizmos.

    Help please!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. ^isn't samsung originally from korea? baka it's cheaper there!!

    ^
    ^yeah, not the same phone that 2PM & Minami Shineyo is promoting..but a whole lot better!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, i went to greenhills a week ago to check the price of Corby. I saw they all have the "corby pro" (that is what they saying but that was the 4310 one - corby slider without WiFi and only 2 MP) and later on i just knew that there is the real CORBY PRO or (improved version of corby 3410) which is not already released here in the phil. yet. Even in some stores at SM malls dont know about this unit. and so i havnt seen it in greenhills.

    anyway thanks for your replies.

    I'm really waiting for this phone, i even keep on asking it in every mobile stores everyday. lol

    please inform if you knew that is already released here. thanks :D

    ReplyDelete
  38. yeah, and i was with her!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. are you sure the price is 11,990?

    ReplyDelete
  40. i saw an LG fone @ SM fairview with the same specs as corby pro 5310 touch and qwerty pad, wi-fi and 3.(something)MP cam with price around 11.9k also..so maybe this'll probably be corby's rival in the market..both have the same funcionality and style so maybe their price aren't afar from each other..

    ReplyDelete
  41. The stores in Greenhills will have stocks of Corby Pro on Sunday (Jan.10).. Estimated price would range from 9k-10k

    ReplyDelete
  42. ^ wow tnx for the info ....need to go there early in the morning %_%

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks RV!


    Guys, there you go (according to RV):

    The stores in Greenhills will have stocks of Corby Pro on Sunday (Jan.10).. Estimated price would range from 9k-10k

    :)

    TP is also waiting for this phone. :P It's going to be TechPinas' 2010 Q1 phone.

    ReplyDelete
  44. They said they already have this phone before, but didn't order much.. one of the stores told me the reason was because "hindi pa kasi full out sir" hehehe.. The one on the bridgeway is City Telecom, I asked to see the unit but the salesperson told me she will only get it if I will surely buy it. Some customer service they have on that store, no wonder no one buys from them. But from all the stores I asked City Telecom is selling it for 8.5k

    ReplyDelete
  45. hi guys, i just went to SM Megamall Cyberzone earlier today. I asked a couple of stores and only one of them has the Corby Pro (B5310). the store's name is 5th Avenue Telecom, they have it in stock and they're selling it for P12,500..

    gahd...if the release is jan 10 for 9k-10k, then i might have to wait for it then T_T

    ReplyDelete
  46. hey RV thanks for the info men!! god finally my girlfriend and i will get our hands on that phone!!

    3 cheers to you RV!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. Let's just hope they won't change the price, they said that the "estimated" price is 9k-10k.. But if the SRP from Samsung is 11,900, I guess prices in Greenhills would really range from 9k-10k..

    ReplyDelete
  48. i cant wait to buy it na. hahahaha! pwede kaya mag text vis ts or sa keypad lng?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Is the one in greenhills an India version? Or will it be like the Philippine version already?
    When is the exact date of the Corby Pro? Cause I ask a personnel from Samsung Mobile at SM MOA, he said that it's gonna be release around February and he said that he's not yet sure of the price.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  50. sale reps from samsung mobile dont really know much about their products.. used to have the samsung P930 (TV phone) they said that samsung never released a phone like that, so when i showed them my phone they just said "ay meron pala nyan" hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  51. is the one in greenhills authentic?...i'm a first time buyer and i wasnt so convinced by the facts they gave me....so could anyone confirm if the one being sold there is authentic...---paranoia much...

    p.s.
    any other more store where the pro is available?? i would have to still check sm north annex (cyberzone)tomorrow for the pro...will surely update on any news from there..

    ReplyDelete
  52. pls inform us ...who ever gets the first pro here in the phils to discuss its features and the issue about the wifi thing .....and also post it where u get ur PRO and the price ...tnx a lot

    ReplyDelete
  53. i dont know where bridgeway is, can somebody tell me where this place is located so i can check the store name city telecom..is this in grinhils?..

    ReplyDelete
  54. I just went to Greenhills and it's out of stock. I've asked many people and they're all saying that it's out of stock.

    I asked someone in Samsung there in Greenhills and she said that they are selling CorbyPro for 16k. waah. :((
    ...but when I asked the other stalls, they said that they are selling it for 9k.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Corby Pro is out of stock already!! Apparently some stalls had a few units yesterday and it sold like pancakes.. I guess we'll just have to wait for new deliveries or just get them at malls or at Samsung stores..

    Really dude 16k? When I asked they said 13k+

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yes, they said it's 16k in the Samsung store in Greenhills. I don't know why. Maybe, they increased the price since the demand is high. :((

    ReplyDelete
  57. wew filipino's are always like that ....but why there's a SRP if they don't follow the prize...wew

    ReplyDelete
  58. wwwwwwwoooowwwww!!!!...

  66. Hi kleade!

    Thanks for the update (straight from Baguio) :)

    I guess TP is just more at the forefront of Samsung news vs. Samsung sales reps themselves. Hehe. I'm personally cutting them some slack.

    I'll let you know once we have news from retail stores in Baguio. I'm sure Pro won't take long in reaching your city. :)

    Thanks for checking out TP!

  72. Bought one at Samsung Megamall for 11,900. It's the last unit though. They only got 5 units according to the sales staff. I am loving it. Got the white keyboard. The only downside...memory card is not included! Wifi is working great...no hassle!! ^_^ <<--e2 po sabi sa isang site mern na daw po kso last stock daw

  77. cha, thanks for your post.

    i just went to SM Megamall earlier. Accdg to the saleslady, yeah, they had 5 units delivered yesterday & it was sold out the same day. and WTH! the sales rep told me that the price indeed is P11,900 but up to Jan20 only. after that there's a high possibility that they'll increase the price!! Ohnoes. next delivery tomorrow daw. guys, grab it while u can, coz i know, as early as Jan20, i cant T_T

    can someone here confirm the jan20 thing? i got this feeling that samsung is giving it for 11,900 now just to keep their SRP promise...

  92. can't wait for this..

    ReplyDelete
  93. It's available in Greenhills.
    I just bought mine today, but only white is available so I'll just buy another cover 'cause I like the yellow one. Only the white one is available so far there.

    I bought mine for P13,500.
    It's more pricey if you bought it in a Samsung store.
    If it's just in stalls, it's P11,500. And only white keyboard is available in stores. The red keyboard is available in the Samsung store. I don't like the white keyboard because it will get dirty easily.

  141. is it true that it is already available at alabang?. how much does it cost there?.tnx!

    ReplyDelete
  142. was able to connect already to our network. Turns out mahina ang signal sa room ko kaya I had to get out of my room. Sa sala ok naman, i was able to connect.

    BTW mag greenhills na lang kayo. The white one is 11,100 last price nila tapos sa red 11,200 last price, cash basis.

    ReplyDelete
  143. ako pag nasa sm hindi ako makaconnect sa net ... may dapat bang ayusin sa setting ng wifi nya? dami ko pang hindi nadidiscover sa phone na ito.

    ReplyDelete
  144. just called the samsung hotline and they told me that corby pro will be release this week, don't know the exact date and also the price..

    ReplyDelete
  145. may cartoon ui ba ang corby pro?

    ReplyDelete
  146. What store in Greenhills can you get the Corby Pro at 11,100 or 11,200 php?

    ReplyDelete
  147. been using the Corby pro for almost a week now and I just wanna point out a couple of things. BTW please do correct me if my observations on this phone is incorrect.

    First are widgets and other applications like the internet that when accidentally touch, will automatically connect to your phone GPRS. I'm not sure about the outher countries but here in the Philippines they charge for the GPRS service.

    Is there a setting in which the phone will ask you if you want to connect via GPRS or WiFi connection?

    Second is with the "Smart Unlock" feature were in you can assign a letter to unlock your phone by drawing the letter on the screen.
    The problem is when you click the unlock button on the side of your phone, you can bypass the "smart unlock" feature by just pressing the lock sign on your screen.

    Again, do correct me if I missed any setting to correct this.

    So far these are the only 2 loopholes that I found with this phone.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  148. You can change the setting so that it won't automatically connect to gprs but instead to wifi. Go to Internet -> settings -> Internet profiles -> scan which wifi connection you want to be connected with, then there. It won't automatically connect to gprs.

    About the smart unlock, yeah you can also unlock the phone by pressing on the lock sign for about 3 seconds - 5 secs.

    For those who are still looking for a b5310, it's now available @ rob place manila.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Btw, I have found the prob with the internet connection. If the signal is weak, you really would have a hard time connecting. I went to rob place manila yesterday to test the wifi capacity of b5310 and here's what I found out. If the wifi signal is just 1 bar, you wont be able to connect to the internet. It would say DNS or No AP response. try to go so the area near starbucks and marks and spencer, the signal is 2 bars or up there and you would be able to get into the net. I tried connecting to you tube there and it worked. :)

    So far, the draaw back of this phone is that the batt life is short when you are always using the applications but other than that, it's one heck of a phone :)

    ReplyDelete
  150. is at available in festival mall-alabang?:) hows the cam working?. and is it easy to connect to the wifi as compared to samsung star?

    ReplyDelete
  151. Hi Terence!

    If you change the internet setting and choose wifi, will that also prompt the phone to connect via WiFi if you click one of the widgets....lets say the "more widgets"? or will it still connect via GPRS?

    ReplyDelete
  152. got my corby pro last monday :) itso nice :) i swear :) bought it for 12k in moa :) they only have 2 stocks, they dont have 1 in samsung store lol corby pro is like an iphone,with gossip girl features LOL i so love it

    ReplyDelete
  153. hello guys can i ask a favor..? could you post some sample pictures taken with your corby pro just so to see the image quality. I've seen a few samples in the net but im not quite sure yet. I had samsung phones before having really bad camera with even 5mp so I would just like to check ttnx =)

    ReplyDelete
  154. I just got mine just yesterday at Hello! Megamall. It seems like lady luck was on my side yesterday since they only had one unit on hand. I like it very much except for the photo quality. Other than that, it's really worth the price

    Princes, for a 3.2 megapixel camera, the photo quality sucks.

    For those who are planning to buy, I suggest that you call shops first and then reserve.

    I think it's available at Samsung Eastwood and Galleria.

    The white keypad's actually more girly.

    ReplyDelete
  155. korbito, yeah it will automatically connect to wifi when you click on the widgets.

    With the cam, so far it's ok as long as you have ample lighting coz it doesn't have a flash. Well, I think it was a given fact since we know the specs of this phone before hand.

    ReplyDelete
  156. are there any extra back cover if i purchase corby pro, just like the corby touch?

    ReplyDelete
  157. regarding the photo quality being not that good is such a downer.. I really like the look of it so cute! I like the features except for the camera darn! Now I'm having second thoughts about owning one.. since being vain much and taking pics of myself is my fave thing to do on a phone :-P

    ReplyDelete
  158. I like my Corby Pro, especially now that I discovered "GPS+"...this feature is NOT enabled by default, but users can enable it and then the GPS performance is noticeably stronger! Here's hot to do it:

    Go to MENU > SETTINGS > PHONE SETTINGS, scroll down to GPS+ SETTINGS and see options:

    (1) To get manual GPS+: click DOWNLOAD DATA. This will do it once, data is good for a few days (?).
    (2) To get automatic GPS+: Click "ON" icon right below "AUTO DOWNLOAD". This downloads GPS+ in background, 2x per week.

    Try it, you should notice a big improvement in GPS (Google Maps, for example)!

    ReplyDelete
  166. for video calls lang :P

    ReplyDelete
  167. To the other anonymous person:

    Corby Pro is a far more appealing and interesting phone than Marvel.

    The only good thing about Marvel is its 5mp camera.

    gave them the phone back last Saturday. i don,t know when they'll be giving it back :(.

    ReplyDelete
  174. @jv and megan:
    i got the same problem with you guys.
    i was really annoyed. i thought there was a problem with the network but my friend said na they'll send the 3G settings automatically. but i havent received one yet.
    then when i try video call, my corbypro automatically shuts off, then restarts again.
    i dont know what's wrong with it.
    is it with the software or the network?
    i'll try to check the store tomorrow.
    this is really worrying me. :(

    ReplyDelete
  175. I'm thinking about buying this or the omnia pro b7330

    ReplyDelete
  176. why is it that some of u guys have bought alradey corby pro when samsung stores here in the phil haven't got it yet on stock? maybe china phone? figuring that you bought it in grnhills... maybe thats y it has problems with the video call? how do you tell if someone is selling you a legit samsung phone or a china one or some recall phone as they say. for me, I'd rather wait to purchase one in a samsung store just to be sure.

    ReplyDelete
  177. @iyang

    that worries me too. sent it back and haven't received feedback yet from the store.

    @noob

    it's a legit corby pro. including me, iyang and megan. there's more people experiencing the video call problem saw it on the samsung forum boards.

    ReplyDelete
  178. maybe that's one of the defects of the early corby pros, maybe it one of the reason samsung stores hasn't stock of the units yet only few ones that are updated.. maybe they are waiting for the updated the software before they order and sell stocks?

    ReplyDelete
  179. @jv

    Yes, that makes sense.

    Better wait for the Corby Pro via Samsung Store.

    Thanks!
