Software Glitches - Lacking Security Lock Feature

by MrRadioActive    Apr 20, 2009, 6:59 PM

Overall very impressive phone. I've noticed some glitches specifically with the messaging application. I have two impressions and they are both doing the same thing. The messaging application is slow to launch. Messages some times get hung and/or will not send until the offending message is deleted and reconstructed. I've even had particular key sequences that have totally locked the phone down and required a battery out restart.

I do not like that you cannot set an overall lock that re-engages when the keyboard locks rather you must lock particular programs only. the phone will lock upon power on but will not lock again overall. Sucks for hiding saucy text messages or pics. In this mode when you attempt to place a call to a number in your phone directory, the phone will get to the fourth digit entered and then ask to be unlocked to self populate the search field. If you ignore this it does it again on the fifth sixth and seventh digits entry.

Of course, one cannot get away with the fact that Samsung has their proprietary charging/data/audio port and for you to hard wire some headphones you have to spend $10 for the adapter, which I did buy Samsung direct and receive in like three days.

Like I said, overall, I love the phone. It is slated to replace my iphone mostly for the physical keyboard. I'm going to wait until the software issues are worked out then I will go back to it but I love the phone.
