getting rid of preloaded cingular crap

Is there anyway to delete all the stuff the cingular has preloaded on here. Like the Service #'s in the contact list or the graphics that I wont ever use and they are just taking up space?
I still haven't figured out a way to remove the service # and I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of the Browser setting that have AT&T and Media Net.

How to Transfer Phone Contacts ...???

I've got approx 500 contacts in Phone memory on my Nokia. I want to get the Synch and transfer my contacts from Nokia phone memory to Synch phone memory.

BUT - all my contacts won't fit on the SIM Card, at the store they say they can't transfer from memory-to-memory, Nokia software apparently won't talk to Samsung, and I'm sure not going to re-key all those contacts and / or BT them one at a time.

Any suggestions would be appreciated ...

Thnx
same thing happened to me, sorry dude. all did was transfer my contacts 1 at a time until my sim card was full, then i put them in my SYNC. After i did that, i deleted the contacts off my sim, and did the next batch until it was full, then put them ...

As of right now, the phone is exclusive to Cingy but it could also be exclusive for a limited time. Later.

Facebook apps on Samsung SYNC

I'd like to use my SYNC to access some Facebook apps - especially Mob Wars. It worked for a while, but now the right side of the page (and some important functions) are chopped off. I don't know if the app changed, or if I accidentally changed something on my phone. Can someone please help? Thanks!!

erroneous voicemail and text icons

Hi -- I have a voicemail and a text message icon on my main screen. This just started; I can't get rid of them. I deleted recent text messages, and I have no voicemail messages.

Has any one else had this problem or can anyone suggest how to delete the erroneous icons?

I recently switched out a European SIM card and put an AT&T SIM card back in, but I don't know if that's connected to this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Original Messaging Tone

Hi,

I used to have the A707, but now I have a different phone (not by choice, I loved that samsung one...)

But the original tone that was custom for messaging on the phone was my absolute favorite. It kind of sounded like a 1970s sitcom segway. I want it on my new phone.

Can anyone tell me where to get it? I can't tell you what it was called because my A707 got stolen which is why I don't have it anymore.

THANKS!

Watch DVD's on this phone!

Get full instructions from sinkintosync.com. You can also read books, play games, add your cd collection to your phone or just about anything else you can imagine. I highly recommend this phone to anyone.
It is a great phone I agree. The photos it takes are amazing for such a tiny lens. I got one question though. When I transferred the videos taken by the phone to my PC and tried to play them on the PC, they won't play. The file format is "3GP" and is ...

Incorrect number of new text messages

Hello, I'm having an odd problem with my phone. When I get a new text message the notification from the phone says I have three new messages. So, if I have two unread messages it'll count the first one as three messages and the second one as just one message.

Is anyone else having this this problem? I'm curious because I don't know if I'm being billed for messages I'm not getting.

Thanks.
Yes, I've had it happening to me, off and on, for many months now. I've had my phone for over 15 months. I turn it off every night and charge it and most times it doesn't do it after I start it up the next day. I've yet to learn exactly what causes it...

mmf files and my alert tones

I understand that to set a custom alert tone for text messages they need to be in an mmf file, that was converted from a wav file. I have went through the process multiple times and still when I get the tone transfered onto my phone and go to set it it says "invalid file". I would appreciate any help.. thanks.
You cannot set a custom laert tone for text or even multimedia messages on this phone. I've tried it, called AT&T and Samsung with no success. It's still the best phone out there though, in my opinion.

Synch with Mac?

Does anyone out there use this phone with their Mac? Is there a way to synch this phone with isynch this phone to a mac? It is not listed on the apple website but I know there are often "fixes" for this.

Thank you
Sandi
The best way to synch this phone with your mac is to use the bluetooth. then send files that way, it will save you money so you don't have to buy one of those ridiculous USB cables.

How to check level of battery charge?

Is there any way possible to see exactly how much battery life is left (like, for example, 98%, or 20%)? Just relying on the battery bars isn't enough -- often, my phone shows three bars for days, then goes directly to one bar and then shuts down right after that. I'd like to be able to see the exact percentage of charge left, if it's possible.
press *#0523#

then press your right soft key 4x
press 9 then 1

Voice Dialing

Can someone tell me if this phone allows voice dialing through the bluetooth?

Thanks in advance.
No voice dialing allowed. You must caress each number individually for the best connection. Wink

Videos from phone to PC

Does anyone know how to play the 3GP videos taken by the phone, on a Windows XP PC ?

I transfereed the videos with PC Studio, from the phone into the PC but I can't get them to play on the PC because the 3GP file format is unrecognized. Help !

I also want to be able to edit the videos on the PC and post them on YOUTUBE if possible. Anyone tried that ?

Dropped Calls Sync Would Antenna booster help?

Hello! I have had the sync for 3 weeks and am constantly having dropped calls which I neve had with motorola. Will it do any good to return the phone for another one or do they all have the same problem? Also does anyone know if those Antenna booster's help with that? Someone said to give that a try. Thanks
no personal use of the antenna, but what i have read here in the forum, they are junk. although they are pretty cheap and i guess it would not hurt to try. fyi, i too have trouble w/dropped calls, i think it has to do w/the switching from edge to 3g n...

Dropped Calls

After the many dropped calls that I have had on a daily basis with this phone, I have decided to go ahead and exchange it for a different phone.

They are offering to replace it with the LG Trax or the Motorola V3XX, supposedly because those are the only two phones that fall under the "Best" category like the Sync.

Can anyone out there tell me which is the better phone out of the two? Or if they is another phone I should replace this phone with that AT&T will replace with?
Which phone feature is most important to you: a 2 Mp camera with video, an MP3 player with stereo BT and 2Gb SD card capacity, 3G speed with internet browsing, Java games, or just making a simple phone call? Pick your new phone based on the best spec...

My mom had the same problem and didn't want either of those phones. she finally got them to offer her other phones and has the Shine which she really likes. i'd look around at reviews for various phones and you should be able to get a different phone...

Music Player

I had to return my old Sync because I was having problems with it. When I selected the music player, I was able to select one of my playlists, start the music, and then press the "back" button to get back to the main screen, while my music was playing. The music ID showed on my main screen. On my replacement phone, I am unable to do that.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I called AT&T and they have no idea what I'm talking about, so they referred me to Samsung and they are unaware that their phone could do this.

Can anyone else's phone do this?
Yeah, I know exactly what you are talking about - I do it all the time on mine. I can go back to the main screen while the song is playing, send and receive/read a text message, access the menu, the whole nine yards.
And Samsung doesn't know this c...

I found what the problem was. You can select this option when you have the music playing on the screen. Under "Options", select 9. Player Setting, scroll down until you see "Minimize Player" and select "Yes". This took care of my little problem.
