Two major problems for heavy text users


Aug 22, 2007, 5:14 PM
1. Like all other T-Mobile Samsungs, I am pretty sure I verified (while at a store) that this model does not allow you to use downloaded sounds for text alerts. The included message alerts are all childish and annoying.

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.

Both of these are really not that big of a deal to general people.

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. Let alone so few that actually know about it to use it.

Neither of these are large problems for most people who purchase this device, even those heavy texters.

I will agree that both of these are not really huge deterants, but if someone says that they don't like that they can't customize tones, I hardly see "turning them off" and "vibrate" as viable options, let alone "more popular". If you hate being limited, limiting yourself more is a bit backwards. But, all phones have drawbacks, I thinks it's about being comfortable with the performance, and the two points are small to most users...
