Samsung sch-a850 is not...

I work at Metropcs store and just recently sold about 12 samsung a850 including one for my gf. out of those twelve, nine of them came back telling me that they can not hear anything when they make call or it sounds like the voice extremely far away. Plus I heard that they are being recalled in Atlanta for the same reason... I would not pay a penny for this junk

This is my first time dealing with Asurion Insurance.

Metro Pcs needs to seriously reconsider the insurance provider "Asurion". I has a customer in my store for about an hour because her phone was broken and she was trying to make an insurance claim. They put her through so many hoops, to a point where I actually felt bad for her.

A few questions about MetroPCS's RAZR V3c - please help!

Hello! I have a few q's about the new beautiful addition to MetroPCS's lineup. Hopefully someone from MetroPCS or a new owner of this phone can answer.

1. Most critical question - can the phone be charged (with car charger OR house charger) while being used?
[This may seem like a silly question but I've been SUFFERING with my Kyocera Slider since day 1...for 2.5 years - the battery is DRAINED when talking on the phone even when it's plugged to the A/C charger.]

2. Can I upload some custom-made MP3's from my PC to the phone (via bluetooth/USB) and then assign different MP3's as ringtones for different people? So when Dad calls, it'll say in his voice "hello son", when friend calls it'll say "WASSUPPPP" etc? Possible? My worry is that ...

Got a Nokia 6255i! YeA! Help!

Smile Yea, so I've just recently purchased a Nokia 6255i, got it off of ebay for less than half of the retail price... So happy, although like people said, the design is a bit loose and not as sturdy as my v266..

Anyway, I'm thinking about purchasing a Kingston MMC 1 GB and a DKU-2 USB Cable to compliment my phone..

Would those be good, or would others do better?

Metro PCS Razr V3c- took it out for a test drive on metro and...

ok so as a complete newbie i opted for the razr.

I was able to text.

I was told at METRO PCS that yahoo picture e-mails dont work (when i e-mailed the messages were blank no text or picture

i work on a mac so no luch getting it to sync using isync
(not able to take pictures off phone)

I returned phone with issues and asked why i was unable to e-mail pics to hotmail. They responded (after more than 40 minutes) by telling me that my phone was defective.

Phone said charge complete on it even though it was nolonger charging

As i had not talked more than 5 minutes and had had the phone less than 24 hrs i was able to return phone for full refund

Also they were no table to tell me whether a wired headset would work with it
