Connection problems with my Blackjack

I just got my Blackjack this past weekend and something isn't right with it already.

Almost every time I try to connect to Internet Explorer or anything else that needs web, my phone just sits there and doesn't connect or do anything at all no matter how many times I hit the Ok/navigation button.

It will pop up a link up at the top of the screen, but won't do anything else besides that. I do notice everytime I try to connect to anything web based a lock icon will pop up at the top of my screen. I have no idea what this icon means and I can't find it in the book.

I have the data package for the phone, so I don't know why it won't connect. It's only really connected to the web for me a couple times since I've had it.

If anyo...
Call customer service and ask to have a data package added or the per kilobyte feature... I work for verizon, but carry at&t. They often forget to add the per-use feature.

high capacity micro sd problems?

I just bought a 6gb micro sd card off of ebay and right after I paid for it I heard that samsung phones are not compatible with high capacity micro sd cards. Of course, I already paid for it and it is on its way, but if I could get confirmation on this so I can still return it in the package, that would be great. Please tell me if you have a 6gb or higher in your blackjack and it works, or if you know FOR SURE that it does NOT work.

Thanks in advance
Do the Windows Mobile 6 upgrade, and you'll be good to go!

Does the upgrade wipe your phone clean & you start with a blank device?

MicroSD card - Size/capacity limits??

Is there a limit to the capacity, 512? 1gb? 2gb?

I'v heard some devices can only read up to 1gb or something. Anyone know if there are any limits to what the Blackjack will read off the microSD card?
2gb limit, i answered my own question!
If you do the Windows Mobile 6 upgrade, you can use SDHC cards. I tested it myself with my wife's 4GB micro SDHC card.

Can I change the # of rings before it goes to voicemail?


I'm trying to change the default setting to increase the number of rings before voicemail engages when someone calls on my blackjack. I've looked through the manual and reviewed phone options, but can't seem to find anything. Is this possible?

You can change the number of rings but it has to be done on the network side. There are no settings on your phone to make it ring longer. Check with AT&T.
Try this

1. Settings
2. Phone
3. Voice Calls
4. Call Forwarding
5. No Reply
6. Forward After - Change this setting and see if that helps.

Automatically keeps lighting up

So I recently upgraded my Blackjack to WM6.

But since then I have noticed that the Blackjack automatically likes to light up (keys backlit and screen as well) automatically. No messages, nothing.

The things that I have running at any given time are OctroTalk (used to have this even on WM5) and Messaging and ActiveSync (sycned to Exchange as well as Google IMAP).

Now when I use Salling Clicker at home - it used to light up automatically - and I figured it was just Salling estabilishing a communication channel. But even when I am not using Salling - i.e.. its turned off on both the computer as well as the phone - the phone still keeps lighting up - even say when I am driving and not close to any other device.

Just very annoying. ...

Low headset volume

I have a BlackJack with a headset adapter that allows me to plug in a headset with mini-phone jack into the multiconductor connector on the side of the unit. The problem is the volume playing MP3's with Windows Media Player is extremely low, even with the volume at 100%. Anybody have a clue as to why this is? I already found the settings under Windows Mobile Profiles and set the headset volume to "Loud" (it was at 2) and that did absolutely nothing.

Music ID

I have managed to delete the path to my Music ID application, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to fix that? I am assuming that it would probably just be a file replace, but someone else might know the backend better than I do.
This might not be the best advise but if you do a master re-set it should show up again. that tis because it is in the firmware
You'll have to connect your BJ to your computer for this.

Explore your device through ActiveSync and go to \Program Files\MusicID. Make a new shortcut for the MusicID application and move that shortcut to \Windows\Start Menu. It is now back in yo...

"E" on display

First of all, I´m sorry about my english.. I own one BlackJack, and I want to know, please, what is the "E" in my display... There is two "E" in my display... one small near the signal bar, and one bigger, near the vibrate mode signal...
And another question... When I close Internet Explorer and E-mail at Task Manager, it means that I don´t have transfer between my BlackJack and the internet? (I don´t want to pay for MB if I´m not using it)...
Thank You again
I am curious too what this "E" means? The blackjack manual seems very limited regarding some of the display symbols.

Does anyone know what the tilted phone handpiece with the ! symbol means?

Problem with Random Calendar Alerts

My Samsung Blackjack Calendard reminders/alerts are driving me nuts, unless I turn them off completely.

If I set Reminders or Alerts for my appointments in Calendar, they start going off at all different times even several days in advance.

I have tried turning off all Tasks, but the Reminders/Alerts seem to keep going anyway. (By the way, when the alerts go off and I go to turn off Tasks, the only Task showing is ActiveSync -- I wonder why that is.)

So, has anyone else had this problem and is there any solution other than not setting any alerts or reminders?

And does anyone know why if the Reminders/Alerts occur, why it is that the running Task is ActiveSync?

Any help would be great!
I had this issue and an issue with my call log. Turns out turning off the auto update feature fixed it. I am guessing it was an issue with a tower having the wrong date and time.
I had this problem. I noticed that everytime it happened, my phone suddenly thought it was March 17th, 2008. So, I turned off the auto-update of date/time and the problem went away.

Hope that helps.

Storage card installs keep erasing

I'm installing programs onto my storage card. I noticed that they sometimes install fine, and after a day or so disappear. Sometimes they install and immediately disappear. In any case, the contents of the storage card are there, but the contents of /storage card/program files/ is empty. Is there anything special about installing to the storage card?
