How to â€œcomposeâ€ a voice message on the Instinct
One of the â€œhiddenâ€ but fun features of the Instinctâ€™s Visual Voicemail is the ability to create a voice message on the phone and send it to another mobile phone or to an email address. You can also send it to multiple recipients at the same time. Hereâ€™s how it works:

Nice Phone But Network?
The Dare doesn't impress me at all so I was about to switch to ATT and the iphone when I happened into the Sprint shop just to see what they have.
The instinct is really a nice phone. Has many of the features I enjoy using a few that are missing from the iphone. But i found that only a landscape keyboard (expect to dial) is awkward at times. That aside I'm pretty sold on this phone.
My problem is with the Sprint network. I live in the DFW metroplex and though the Sprint map coverage shows its pretty saturated I know people who use Sprint and have connection problems.
I'm not a huge fan of ATT and GSM and I have very few issues with VZW network (though VZW prices are way too ...
Actually, you can make the keyboard either landscape or portrait mode. Furthermore, it has a freehand mode.
I don't live in the DFW area but I too am giving Sprint a try. I'm currently with AT&T and am also waiting for my Sprint Instinct to show up.
When I activate it I'll ask for a private number and forward...
I might buy and sell a lot of cell phones, but I typically would never jump ship.
Well, I just did! I was with at&t for a very long ti...
Without an unlimited plan?
The reason being with a phone like the Instinct, requiring the everything plans actually makes Sprint's life easier. With the PDAs, some idiot will always say they don't want the internet/...

Instinct Visual Voicemail: We'd love to hear from you!
I have learned that every phone is not perfect but this Samsung Instinct is close to being that.
Cons: Its hard to dial a particular # when driving. The lock button is sometimes a pain in butt.

2. Settings - lower right with the pic of gears
3. scroll down to where it says lock
4. Press to enter and you can switch it off here.

Traffic not displaying on navigation
I just got my Sprint Instinct on 8/12. When I go into the Sprint Navigation app and then click on Maps & Traffic, the traffic does not show up. I click on the signal light icon and I can see it exchanging data, but the display never updates to show the traffic on the freeways.
Does it work for anyone?
