Hi all :o) I've just received the Samsung M510, and am still learning my way through it. Although it seems great to receive a small instruction manual, it's not that helpful.
Does anyone know if there is a setting, so that the time on the small screen (the screen you see when the phone is shut), stays there - always. It's just there for a few seconds, then disappears. I'd prefer it always be visible.
Thanks so much for any help.

It will chew up your battery, so don't forget to charge it up overnight, switched off for a few nights in a row!!!  If you don't work it out (probably in 'settings, display' etc) just do what I do, touch one of the buttons on the side.  Maybe the volume might be best?  Does the manual have a 'menu map'?  That makes it super easy to find what you want.

Thanks so much. I didn't find a setting, but your suggestion of using one of the buttons on the side does the trick (the red camera button is ideal). I see what you mean about the battery life. I received bluetooth headphones with the phone, and have had to charge the battery after 24 hours!!
