Found MP3 Resolution

I finally found a way to get a custom mp3 ringtone on my phone. I am using the Metro PCS version.

- Send a text message to your email address. This way you can get your phone's email address (if you don't already have it).

- Simply reply to the email, and attach your mp3. Send.

- When you get the text message (email) on your phone, just download the attachment.

- The mp3 will end up in your "Sounds" folder under the multimedia section. You can now assign it as a ringtone.

I now have the MW2 Op-For spawn music as my ringtone. I love it.

U520 for hotmail??

I purchased this phone like 3 weeks ago. My service carrier is metro PCS. Overall the phone is really cool, it has very nice functions like the converter, which helps in some cases. One of the reasons that made my purchase this phone is that is email capable.

Since I only use hotmail, when I was about to buy the phone I asked the salesguy at the metro PCS dealer and he said that the phone was capable to work with hotmail. Few days after I bought the phone I went to the metro PCS service office to have all the contacts transfered from my old phone to the new one, and took the opportunity to ask about the settings for the phone to log into hotmail, unfortunately I was told by the guy at metro PCS that the phone is not capable to do so, so ...

PC Connection

Just got the u520 at US Cellular and so far its been great - just one question:

US Cell doesn't sell the data cable or PC connection software for the u520. Will the data cable and PC software from third party vendors work? I know Alltel sells the same phone and sells the PC software - would it work on my US Cell phone?

Locking the phone

Does anyone know of a fast way to lock the Samsung SCH-u520 phone? I know I can press 9, 5, 3, enter my code, press OK for the Lock options, press up to go to Lock, and press OK. Or I can set it up so that it is locked every time I turn the phone on. But I need to keep my phone locked whenever it's not in use and it seems like a hassle to have to turn the phone off and back on every time I use it just to get it locked. Does anyone know of a quicker way?
Thanks in advance.

Memory card problem

I bought the right memory card, microSD/TransFlash 512 MG. It came with an adapter to fit into the SD card slot in my computer. I formatted it on my computer, transferred mp3 files onto it, and when I put it into the card slot in my phone, my card was not recognized. I don't even get the option to format the card on the phone. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Close but not quite :(

Looked at this phone for USCC - They call it the LG now but it is not up to my expectations.
It is a decent phone for last year but not what I would call state of the art now.
I was not satisfied with Samsung still using its own connector instead of a mini or micro USB connector. I mean isn't it time to start standardizing these things? Lets get with the 21st century Samsung!!!!!

Whats with the fake flash window? That is so cheezy! when I saw it I thought it had two flash LED's for killer low light capabilities and was shocked to find one of them is a fake for styling purposes. PHONEY is not a good thing in a phone. I mean why did they not folllow through on this?

Also OK whats with phones with cameras and USB connectors not ...

Sounds like a nice CDMA phone but details are fuzzy - for example Samsung says this phone is an XM satellite receiver. The one review already posted points to software issues at this time also. Hope to see this on USCC some day soon.

Backlight while charging...

Does anyone elses backlight stay on during the entire charge process? None of my other phones have done this. And there is no charge complete notification? So I just assume that it is done charging when the battery bar stops blinking? Even then, the backlight stays on. Could this possibly be good for the phone if you forget to take it off the charger??? Thanks!!
