Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that the Sim Free Samsung Galaxy Y Mobile Phone - Silver does not come with Facebook pre-installed, however this can be downloaded. Candy crush will need to be downloaded as a separate app to be played.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Hey and yep you haqve to charge it for a day before using the phone for the first time as this helps give the battery a longer period before charging. So charge the phone first before setting it up.

Hope that helps Dami (phone expert)

Hi Suzanne,

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

I can confirm, having contacted Samsung, that the Sim Free Samsung Galaxy Y Mobile Phone - Silver does not come with a headset or headphones.

I can confirm, however, that any headphones are compatible with this phone that support a 3.5mm jack connection.

I hope this helps,

Question
Can you lock out the access to the internet
I have only had my phone two days, just working my way around it, as I only need it for calls and texting, but somehow I have already been charged for Data?? I do not want to access the internet so is there a way I can lock it out ?? Also what is the H emblem with two flashing arrows next to the signal indicator on the top right hand side? This is not shown on any of the images of this model in its adverts or in the very poor manual provided.

From the home screen press the menu icon, settings, wireless and networks, mobile networks ad un-tick the "use packet data" option.

The "H" icon in the top-right indicates data usage disabling packet data should also disable the icon.

The data you're currently using will likely be the phone checking for updates for apps (it does that approx once every 3 hours) and updating the clock (done every 30 mins to 1 hour).

Just switch off your wi-fi sign on the left hand side by a little press on it. Also, the H emblem could be the strength signal of your sim service.
