Connectivity is doing fine

With the Samsung S7220 Ultra b you can count on 3G with HSDPA support and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) for browsing internet on the go.

In addition to the network connectivity options, the Ultra b also supports Universal Serial Bus (USB) and Bluetooth, both version 2.0. There is also A2DP onboard.

The phone works seamlessly when transferring data to and from PC. A notable enhancement to the Bluetooth File Browser service is the ability to create certain files or folders visible or invisible according to your needs.

The Universal Serial Bus (USB) connection has Personal Computer (PC) Studio, Media player and Mass storage modes. Each of them can be set as default or otherwise the user will be prompted for action upon connection.

Browser is fine, but for the flash

The Web browser of Samsung S7220 Ultra b is pretty decent for the class which usually renders pages pretty well. There are some exceptions in which the Netfront browser struggles but those are hardly frequent enough to bother you. However if you don't stick to the default page size things are slightly different and rendering errors are way more frequent.

The browser offers landscape and fullclassy screen views and also some nice features like search-in-page, mini map and the virtual moutilize pointer. If you browse elaborate pages, the desktop view mode is more appropriate, while for simple sites it's better to utilize the smart-fit view.

A pretty gigantic disadvantage of the browser (although probably expected in this class) is the lack of proper Flash support. This means that the fans of Flash video and YouTube will have to go without checking the latest additions on the go - unless you opt for the mobile streaming version.

Organizer and applications

The Samsung S7220 Ultra b calendar offers three views - daily, weekly and monthly. There are five types of events available for setting up: appointment, anniversary, holiday, vital and private. The Calendar can store up to 100 appointments, 50 anniversaries, 50 holidays, 20 vital and 20 private events.

The calendar is pretty much unchanged

There are five alarm slots on Samsung S7220 Ultra b. Each of them can have its own snooze time, number of repetitions and activation days.

Among the other offerings are the voice memo recorder, a world clock application, a calculator, and a unit convertor. A countdown timer and a stopwatch will probably seem appealing to sports-minded users. There is also a handy to-do manager that can assist you organize your time better.

The final application worth mentioning in the Ultra b is the integrated document viewer. It supports viewing MS Word, MS Excel and Portable Document Format (PDF) files and handles them all pretty well. The application is very quick and generally a pleasure to work with. It has nothing to do with the scrolling and zooming of some other Samsung handsets that hold ages on each step.
