E315 using SunCom???

Is it possible to use a SunCom chip in the Samsung E315?

I've read that SunCom is TDMA GSM, but that doesn't make it incompatible with this Samsung model does it?

Uploading my own Ringtones?


I'm having some problems uploading ringtones to my phone (SGH-E315), and I was wondering if someone could help me. I'm using PSMPlay to convert midi files to mmf, but I can't seem to e-mail them to myself successfully. The attachment never comes across in the e-mail. When I send it as an mmf file, I get a message saying "attachment dropped". I even tried renaming it as a jpg file, but then I get an error saying "unsupported content type". Am I doing it wrong, or is T-Mobile restricting me from uploading my own ringtones? The files I'm creating are only around 10k in size too. Do I need to spring for the data cable?

Whisper Mode (A310)?

What happened to the Whisper Mode on the Samsung A310? Why hasn't Samsung included this in their lastest phones? It's often pretty hard to hear on my E715 even with the volume on max, in a noisy area. However, the A310 I had with Verizon about 1 year ago was able to automatically adjust the volume to compensate for the surround noise and you could "whisper" in a quiet setting and still be heard, hence the name of the feature.

I've read up on the E800 that claims to use some new technology that is basically the same as the former Whisper mode. I just wanted to know if Samsung has used this feature on any other phones after the A310? Crying or Very sad ... »

Samsung a650 help

Hi, I previously had a Motorola T720. I put midi files on a web server and with the WAP browser, I was able to download ringtones I created. I am unable to do this with my new Samsung a650. I am able to "download" the midi and listen to it, but I can't save it. Maybe I haven't seen the option, or maybe it doesn't exist. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Samsung & T-Mobile

Why doesn't Samsung make tri-band phones for T-Mobile? They have the D415, whereas the D410 is tri-band and not offered with T-Mobile. The R225, X105, E105, or E715 aren't tri-band. The upcoming E315 is dual-band too. Why not?

Anyone know if the Samsung SCH a-670 will allow the text messages saved to be locked so that when you try to read a message it will prompt you for a password? I had a Motorola v720 and it had that feature, but I just got this phone yesterday and don't know what it will do? NEED answer to this one!

Software for samsung a610

The samsung a610 is a good phone but the support from samsung is almost non-existent. I had to go on ebay to buy a usb data cable so I don't have to pay the blackmail to verizon to upload photos to my computer. However, the cable came without software and not only does samsung not provide software downloads for the a610 but they won't even answer my email addressing this issue. Does anyone know where I can get the software? The a610 is not a cheap phone but samsung acts like this is some kind of low-end purchase that they don't want to be involved with. Someone should clue them in that this is expense phone that requires better support and service for their customers.
