Using the web on unlocked e315

I need some major help here... Just got a new unlocked Samsung e315 that was originally on t-mobile but I'm using it with FIDO. Everything works great... except I cannot connect to the web! The phone automatically tries to connect to t-mobile's t-zones, which doesn't work. I can't figure out how to change this.
Help please!

Update to Samsung a890???

Any word (confirmed or otherwise) on an update to Samsung's a890?? I'm thinking of switching over to Verizon but would like to take advantage of their EV-DO service.

1. How has EV-DO been so far?? Anyone noticing the difference is speed increase??

2. How is the a890?? I'm asking about updates to it because I would prefer to have a phone with Bluetooth.

3. I should be able to use whichever phone I get as a wireless modem for a PDA and still take advantage of the broadband speed right??

Samsung SGH-D500 also comes in SILVER, but US shows only the BLACK

In all the American sites, they are showing only the BLACK D500. In the UK sites I have seen them in SILVER.

At this point the SGH-D500 lacks a carrier, but it is GMS.

How are Samsungs in terms of reliability and reception?

I currently have the LG-8000 and am looking to dump this nightmare due to the software issues that it keeps having. I did look at the 8100 but then saw the SCH-A970 is going to be released and it looks like a better phone so I'm going to wait.

How are Samsungs in general regarding reception and reliability?

Only 100 MP3 files Displayed for P735

Hello all,

Was wondering if anybody has encountered this. I purchased a 512mb RS-MMC for my P735. Downloaded 106 songs on it, but the phone only displays 100 songs when the "Play All" option in highlighted.

Anybody with that problem? The RS-MMC card is a PQI, and I still have 40m free. Samsung report says they don't support 3rd party vendor cards (of course!). I wanted to see if anybody else has the 512mb card, and is experiencing this. Is this a display limitation, or truly a PQI issue?

D500 Phonebook

Hi guys, hope you can help. Have recently managed to connect my D500 to my PC using a USB data cable. Having done this I was able to sync my contacts etc which was cool. Only problem is that all the contacts in my D500 now show as "Last Name, First Name" which is a pain. I want the "First Name" to be shown alphabetically first. What am I doing wrong?

Samsung E340

So, I saw this phone awhile back (I think when Samsung released its new line) and haven't heard anything about it. It seems to be nowhere on the web, yet samsung has its user manual online. (gsmarena has it listed as available as of 1st quarter 2005 but from what I can tell its not in the US or abroad).
I had heard the e335 being slated for launch but the 340 has bluetooth and I could definitly be happy rocking a samsung with bluetooth.
I don't neccessarily need solid info. Even rumors will quench by thirst for technology.

Samsung SPH-A760 / RL-A760

I am going to re-post the question - Surely someone has experience with this phone???? I asked Sprint and (of course) there are no issues...

Ok folks, a little help please...

I am really interested in the Samsung SPH-A760 / RL-A760. I have read the reviews here on PhoneScoop and others (C|Net, etc...) and have not found a great deal of information. There are only 5 reviews of this phone on PhoneScoop and is receiving a less than stellar rating. Due to the low number of reviews, I am still considering the phone as it has all the features I require and no camera (can't have at the day job...).

The reason I ask is I have read reviews in the and sometimes take them with a grain of salt as the info can be inaccurate. I currently h...

Samsung and voice-dialing

With Samsung moving into BT phones, what is the problem with adding voice-dialing capability to them? The whole point of BT is to avoid the wires, especially when driving, but not having voice-dial means that you have to get the phone out and select a name or dial a number to make a call. With more states cracking down on cell phones while driving without headsets, voice-dialing seems to be a necessity.

I used USB to put ringtones on my older Samsung phones. The P207 doesn't have a usb port (why not?) How can I put ringtones on this phone without paying some ridiculous fee to download them from a vendor?
