Samsung SGH-T749 Highlight

25 Oct 2010

Just purchased the Samsung SGH-T749 Highlight for a backup.

I have a couple of questions and hopefully someone can answer them.

1. How can you lock the phone with password protect verses the side lock option that allows anyone to open and lock without password? The applications are on lock but not getting in the phone after powered up.

I have the PIN and Password function active on startup but it isn't required after I power up.

2. Is the interface provided the only view?
Is this customizable like my Samsung Galaxy?

3. What other applications are available for this phone?

4. Can this phone be rooted to receive applications?

Would appreciate constructive answers and solutions.

Thanks in advance.

Help needed to retrieve photos from Samsung i607 to iPhoto on Macbook Pro

I was wondering if anyone could assist me with how to transfer photos from a several-years-old Samsung Blackjack i607 to iPhotos on my MacBook Pro. Using the USB cable that came with the BlackJack has not worked; the MacBook does not recognize the device. I was able to pair the two via Bluetooth, however, and attempted to send one of the .jpg photos to the computer. I selected the photo, waited for the phone to "find" the computer and name it in the next prompt, then followed the instruction to hit "Beam". The Computer name then showed the word "Pend" next to it, then the word "Fail". But I cannot figure out why it is failing.

Anyone have any suggestions? I am definitely not a computer whiz and this has confounded me. Thanks for an...

Samsung R850 Caliber - Rings externally with a headset plugged in...

Is there anyway to disallow external rings except by manually changing your ring? Most phones default to no external tones when you plug in a headset and that's the norm as far as I know but for the life of me, I can not get around this. I had to turn my texts to vibrate only because while listening to music, with headphones in, the phone is extremely loud and disturbing to others. :/

Samsung Seek (SPH-m350) Playlists

I recently bought the new Samsung Seek. So far it seems like it's a great phone, but there is one thing I cannot figure out.

How do you create a playlist on your PC that can be used by the Seek? It seems the only way to create a playlist is to do it on the phone itself. The playlist file the phone creates is a .lst file, containing lots of binary data, so its not exactly human readable. There is another binary file the phone creates that seems to contain a list of the different playlists you have created, but it is also heavily mixed with binary data making it difficult to read/decode/understand.

I have tried using the standard text .m3u playlist format, but the phone does not even recognize them (they will not show up under the li...

loading contacts to Intensity SCH-U450

I recently switched from AT&T to Verizon and now have a Samsung Intensity. Before quitting AT&T, I used a Motorola backup program to download all my phone contacts into a .csv file.

The Intensity comes with a USB cable as part of the charger, which means I can connect the phone to the PC, but I obviously need software of some sort for the PC to be able to talk to the phone.

Is there shareware/freeware software available that will allow me to upload my contacts to the Intensity?
