Addressbook Synchronization and Data cable
Is there a data cable available to do that? Do I need special software for it. My phone didn't come with any accessories.

Software glitch in calendar & alarms?
A message will pop-up on the main screen "9 calendar events" and then I click on the soft-key to view...nothing. The phone will just go back to it's main screen. Then sometimes the phone will reset itself by shutting off/on if I don't close the slider right away, and had left the phone open.
Then if I try to go under the calendar section, click on "missed alarm events", the phone will momentarily lock, then turn itself off/on.
Any suggestions? I'm perplexed!!
The Poor Man's LG Chocolate? ? ?
With features like 2.2" QVGA, 2MP cam, touch capacitive buttons, mirrored silver finish and 10mm slim design, you're going to look incredibly stupid still hailing any LG Chocolate as the slider benchmark (...
What about headphone? My phone just came with one ear piece. Being a music player, they won't even give a real headphone.

Even with POP config'd, Gmail access is iffy. (In my case, I can send email, see my inbox, but not actually read an email -- ridiculous.) This issue appe...
Is it recommended for basic phone functionality?
I'm not a very technical type of guy. I primarily use my cellular phone as a cellular phone. I do moderate text messaging, I rarely exceed my 400/mo limit, and I don't have much opportunity to listen to personal music devices.
Currently, I have the MotoRazr V3 (basic model) and have had it for two years. The only problem I've ever had with it is the dust particles that get trapped in the screen and make it completely impossible to view in direct light (I've had it replaced twice). Now that I've decided it's time for an upgrade, I'm considering a slider. I figure the Rizr would have about the same functionality as the Razr, and was just about set on that when I saw the fuss over the Samsung Blast. It's definitely sexier than...
Adding to dictionary?
Two major problems for heavy text users
2. You can't escape t-mobile's SMS-based IM system because of their infamous java-blocking. Otherwise you could install an internet-based Java messenger.
1. If you hate the limitation of sounds, a. turn them off, or the more popular b. vibrate.
2. SMS based Java messaging for download is less of a deal on a SureType keyboard. ...
I'm not sure...
"The Blast is yet another weapon in T-Mobile's vast arsenal for these people (texters)."
"But unfortunately the Blast is not - a blast - to use. You should still check out the full range of T-Mobile's messaging armada if you're considering this phone."
Is it a good messaging phone or not?
It's a good messaging phone, but UI quirks and a poor music player make it less of a Blast than it should have been.
just because the blast is in t-mobile's lineup, or arsenal, doesn't mean it's a great phone or that it's fun to use. i'm not sure what i said there caused you to think tha...
Just don't like...
well can u dowload music if u send the mp3 file thru email
- Does it work well with the T9?
Is the T9 adaptive/does it learn words easily?
How does it compare with the BB Pearl's pad?
Does it address word dialing, i.e. can I dial 800-GOOG-411 easily?
You said the pad lends itself to two thumb typing, but is the pad large enough to do so, and can one-hand be done as effectively with a little practice?
"However making calls works slightly differently, at least from the home screen, because of the MyFaves application. Instead of the green send key opening up a list of recent calls, it dials the person currently in front on the MyFaves application."
The Blast has a new myfaves feature that allows you to minimize the myfaves by pressing the disconnect key and they will reappear by pressing the ok key. When they are minimized, the green send key DOES bring up the recent calls list.
it also uses T-mobiles new Network Address Book service, which stores your contacts on their server, for free.

The Razr2 is coming out sometime in September, and Samsung is also releasing a couple more slider phones in the next month or 2. Waiting wouldn't be a bad option either.
