Ok. I have figured out how to do pretty much everything with this phone. Except how to display my name inside when the phone is opened.

Every phone I have ever owned (modern phone), has let me display my name inside of the phone (or Banner) when the phone is open.. some even on the external display.

I could not figure it out on this phone or the e317 from Samsung that I had before this one.

It is really no big deal but I just want to know if it can be done.

i830 Email roaming

With the i830 will the email work in all contries on the GSM or CDMA frequencies that the unit carriers?

I have a customer that wants emails pushed to them while roaming on CDMA or GSM.

Can I find a list of the countries that roaming will be permited with the rates?

This is a Verizon customer.

Thanks »

Samsung i730

I have a customer really looking at doing this phone. Anybody have issues with going on the internet with this phone? He is a railroader and would like to be able to access the railroad site to see when he works and what not.

Anyone? is the site if anyone wants to try it.

I tried on my Treo and it gave me a blank page.

Hey guys I just bought the samsung A950 phone from verizon with a 512mb flash card. Now I was told I can upload video onto the card then onto the phone, not on the phone but be able to play the video from the card on the phone, but when I upload the video to the card, it doesn't even show on the phone, I go to my pix and flix, then to my flix and theres nothing there, what am I doing wrong or was I jerked into just getting this phone? I have the 15 day thing so it's not a huge issue, and I just got the phone today, and I Must say, the reception on this baby sucks ass, I had a previous LG VX 6000 which was great for the first camera phone by verizon, unfortunately that got stolen and was replaced by the VX6100, I had nothing but problems wit...

A940 Camera Quality is HORRIBLE

I'm starting to think that maybe I have a defective phone, and would like to know if anyone else here is experiencing this with their A940.

The phone has a 2 megapixel camera, when I try to take pictures, no matter how still I hold my hand, they are SUPER blurry. I tried turning auto-focus off (according to the FAQ on the samsung site, that is supposed to help), tried putting it on 'sport' mode. Tried turning down the resolution, I tried everything and the pictures all look super hazy and blurry no matter what I do. It seems to me like the phone has an agonizingly slow shutter speed which may be the issue.

Is this happening to anyone else or do I have a defective camera on my phone?

Samsung A670 Call Log Problems


I have replaced my a670 2 times now (and flashed each phone with new software) and I have still been having a problem with my call log. When ever I open the phone to answer a call it sometimes will go to call waiting and then automatically answer the call. Then on the call log it will show that I have missed the call and I answered a different call with call waiting. I have always been annoyed with this problem because I am never sure whether I have actually missed that persons call or if it was because the phone is stupid. I have googled this topic and have found that some people have it. I was wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this call log problem because it seems as if there are some people who don’t have this pr...
