I'm having problems playing streaming video

I have my phone service through Ntelos, but I purchased the Galaxy II S that was originally issued on the Sprint Network. I had the phone "flashed" and know I can use the phone on the Ntelos Network.

Here's my problem: I can only view streaming video's via Wi Fi. Has anyone experienced this problem? Is there a video application that will fix this issue?

Sprint, Ntelos and the company that flashed the phone were not helpfull.

Samsung's microSD Cards

Does anyone know if Samsung has previously made good quality microSD cards? Noting the newly advertised line of waterproof high performance microSD cards I am wondering if this is a new venture for them or if this product is something which they were know for in the past.

Also, is there any benefit to having a microSD card by the same manufacturer of one's device? I am awaiting delivery of a Galaxy S II.

Unbranded Galaxy S2 on T-Mobile?

I just extended my contract on T-Mobile for two years since they gave me a discount on the Value plan but couldn't get a phone upgrade from them. Thinking about just buying the Samsung Galaxy SII somewhere. The T-Mobile guy told me that unless I buy it through them I won't have their 3G or 4G support. Is that really true? I'd rather not buy the phone through them if I don't have to but do want all the features offered.

Would appreciate any input on this.

Exhibit II vs. Galaxy S II


Can someone give me a basic understanding of the difference between these 2 devices? I am upgrading to a smartphone for the 1st time and am trying to make the best decision thus I do not want a device that is going to be obsolete the minute it hits the market and for some reason I feel the Samsung Exhibit is a lower end consumer level device.

Galaxy S II Processor Question

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between the types of processors put into the AT&T and TMobile version of the Galaxy S II?

I have read the Exynos (sp?) in the AT&T version is supposed to be better but no understanding as to why. Have had some issues with TMobile in the past couple of months and since I am looking at a new device wondering if this is also the time to switch carriers.

Galaxy S2... where?

So, uhhh... where's the Galaxy SII info page, or any acknowledgement of its existence? Or do Phonescoop contents still exclusively address US market-only products? Razz

I have one in my hand, have been using it for several weeks.. but as far as Phonescoop is concerned I guess it's just a figment of my imagination.

Is it just me or is SAMSUNG having an EPIC fail with the their products? I've gone from the SAMSUNG Moment to the SAMSUNG EPIC/Galaxy S, and both phones always have some internal issues. From freezing and shutting down without user promting to this very weird popping sound like the phone (EPIC) is shorting out internally.

The phone has some really excellent features, but it gets detracted because of some of the other issues. I have friends who have this phone and they're on their 3rd and 4th iteration either refurbished or at the last straw new. My trust in the quality of phones from this manufacturer is rapidly waning.

Is anyone else having problems like this with SAMSUNG or perhaps another manufacturer.

Samsung u-370

Looking for a low cost phone and have been looking at Costco. Their third party in-store reseller pointed out the Samsung u 370, which I think relates to the FCC ID.

However, I can't find any reviews of a phone with this FCC-ID.

Can anyone help identify this phone?

Samsung Rugby II AT&T Navigator GPS

I bought my dad (an older gentleman) a samsung rugby II. I disabled push to talk by removing the button and clipping it then reinstalling it.

Now my only other problem is he hits the ATT navigator button and it charges us. Is there a way to delete this key or relocate it? Maybe a hack? Its the key right above the send button.
