Shipping Weight: 2.00 pounds
Finally, an affordable unlocked Android phone bundled with a service that allows you to avoid traditional monthly charges (when used over WIFI or with one of our discount SIM cards with data). The built-in iSip gives you the next step in discount calling beyond VOIP allows you to harness the power of the web to have an active phone line with no monthly fee and make low cost international calls. The Galaxy i5500 Android Smartphone is a great bargain Android phone. Despite its compact size and low price this Samsung Galaxy phone runs Android v2.1 Eclair and offers almost every possible connectivity feature you need.
The Samsung Galaxy i5500, also known as Galaxy 5, is the best of the recently released corby smartphones. Running a smart OS and powered by a fast processor, this phone can handle everything you throw at it, using a slightly smaller screen than the Samsung Galaxy S. This unlocked Galaxy 5 can be combined with our global SIM cards to keep you in touch when you travel overseas. Traveling to Europe or Asia? Consider pairing this phone with one of our Global SIM cards (see below).
The full spec sheet is quite impressive given the small size - 2.8-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, a 600MHz processor, accelerometer sensor, 2 megapixel camera and 100 MB of internal memory (expandable via microSD). Connectivity via 3G with HSDPA, Wi-Fi with DLNA, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth, microUSB port and 3.5mm audio jack.
Using iSip and Android To Make Calls Over WIFI Without A Cellular Plan Or Discounted International Calls Using The Internet
The included preloaded InTouch Mobile SIP client and debit account gives you a low cost global telecom solution with direct English speaking customer support and discount global calling rates. The included iSip service gives you the ability to use this phone from any WIFI hotspot without having to subscribe to any service or purchase a prepaid SIM card (no costly monthly plan required). We can show you how to continue to use this phone without an expensive cellphone plan. Now you can have an extra "call out or in line2", "teenager line" or extension phone without another costly monthly bill.
InTouch SmartCards has consulted with you on the SIP process and configured your phone to make calls in a way that, just months ago, was NOT allowed by most major carriers. Very few organizations know how to bring all the services together to make 3g data calls in and out around the world, but now you have it!

Instructions For Using Your iSip Discount Service To Make a Call:
A) launch InTouch Mobile SIP phone and make sure your upper left phone info shows registering properly.
B) you decide to press the GREEN SIP button for data call or press the RED GSM button for cellular call.
C) if no RED GSM button, Tap Settings then bottom of Preferences and turn on "Show GSM button" Tap "Done".
D) your Softphone SIP account Green button is a great way to stay InTouch when your call / data signal is strong.
E) add 1 for North America calls or add only "+" then country code, then number for international calls (no 011).
International User TIP: If your Phone is unlocked and you purchase one of our global SIM cards, then you can add that new mobile number or any numbers (including other mobiles in your group) to your calling pool. USA Redirect, included with our SIM cards, can then be used to call your new Global Prepaid SIM card number directly when no data access is available and save your callers money.
All charges for in and outbound minutes are debited from your InTouch Mobile account. All data usage is subject to arrangements you have made with your carrier for data plans or WiFi usage charges. Your InTouch Mobile debit account does not pay for any carrier data or WiFi access charges at home or as you travel. Prepaid SIM cards for international data usage from InTouch SmartCards require an unlocked iPhone with access to APN settings.
International User TIP: If you turn international Data Roaming off and force all SIP calls to WiFi only, you will stop your ability to make and receive SIP calls until Data is turned back on or you are in WiFi coverage. Leaving international Data Roaming on with push emails and other auto updating apps is something to be aware of based on roaming data costs. To turn GSM data roaming on or off, go to iPhone "Settings" icon Tap "General" then Tap "Network" to turn Data Roaming off or on.
InTouch makes no statement of suitability or availability of call completion on any network around the world. That is why we recommend you have a traditional SIM card in the phone for GSM calls as a primary option. It is important for location services that you make any 911 or 611 calls using your SIM card based calling route, NOT via SIP.
Purchasing the InTouch Mobile SIP client and debit account does give you a low cost global telecom application with direct English speaking customer support and discount global calling rates. InTouch SmartCards has consulted with you on the SIP process and configured your phone to make calls in a way that, just months ago, was NOT allowed by Apple/AT&T. Very few organizations know how to bring all the services together to make 3g data calls in and out around the world, but now you have it ;-)
Some countries or carriers may still restrict the usage of data calls so your standard SIM card is always important to have. You can use our service with an iPhone (even with the SIM card removed) but are limited to WiFi coverage only in the same way it will work with Apple iTouch using WiFi and a microphone equipped ear buds. Purchase another InTouch Mobile user account and have low cost WiFi phone service using an old 2g/3g/3gs or even inactive iPhone or iTouch (no monthly plan required). We can show you how to put these devices to work for the extra "call out or in line2", "teenager line" or extension phone.
With InTouch Mobile service purchased from this page you receive the 4 required SIP service elements including: User name, Password access, Domain setting and an optional non regional USA "virtual" inbound dedicated telephone number. Multiple USA DID numbers can be assigned per account and are available for $39.95 annually and for 1-800 numbers $49.95 annually. 1-800 numbers yield less incoming USA minutes (333 vs 500) per $50 reload. Dedicated international inbound calling numbers are also available from 50+ countries (see int'l LOCAL TEL link below) and they can be combined for a more global business presence starting at $49.95 for 90 days of service.
