Hey guys,

need a little help, a customer asked me what SSR mode on the Samsung W531 meant??? I have no idea but if you press and hold your back key it turns it on and off... it puts what appears to be a lightning bolt through your "ringer" symbol (top left), however when calling the device it still rings and you can still talk as normal. I checked all available sites and the manual... no explanation...

Weird huh? Anyone know? Any help would be appreciated!

It stands for small screen rendering.
What it does I have no idea :p

But I assume it is to do with web-browsing on a mobile.

I thought it stood for simple something ringtone. In fact I'm 95% sure it stands for simple something ringtone. What it does, I have no idea.

I actually thought it stood for simple silent ringtone, but it obviously doesn't. Not that the W531 is very good at being accurate - lots of things in it are broken, so it's possible that SSR stands for simple silent ringtone yet the feature doesn't work.

SSR = Small-Screen Rendering

It allows the page to be reformatted to fit inside screen width, eliminating the need for horizontal scrolling.
