New to Sprint and Question on this phone
1) Does Sprint offer 1 year agreements?
2)Are any data downloads free after 7pm? For example if I transfer pics and music from my PC do I get charged anything other then the .15 per message?
3)About the Samsung M500--can anyone who has this phone tell me if the external screen stays on all the time when the phone is opened and you are actually on a call?
Thanks in advance.
But when i go and download a ringtone, for example it says expires in 90 days. Does that mean the ringtone only last 90 days on my phone?
Text Messages - Please help - any info is better than none....
* How many text messages can you select to send at the same time?
* Also, has anyone else ever gone from a blackberry or pda (keyboard) to this phone and how does it compare in terms of speed to type a message?
* Can you sync your phone to your computer so you won't lose your contacts if something happens to your phone?

keeping the external lcd on?
I hunted through the menu (and the sprint employees did too) but they couldn't find a way to keep the external LCD on. Is there a way somehow?
(Also, they told me that this phone was going to come in red, and that they had one out in a car but it wasn't available to be sold yet)
Can I load mp3 music files into a Music folder on the memory card and play them through the media player, or do I need to convert them to a different file extension?
I'm so confused, someone please help... I just got it, and i mainly got it for the mp3 player and it won't work!!!!
how transfer ringtones via USB?
I can connect to my PC fine and I'm able to transfer files (mp3) to mass storage. I can transfer pictures from the phone using windows explorer. So, I seem to be having success on how getting files to/from the phone from/to my PC.
I have used file manager to move files from the card to the phone. However, file manager doesn't show any directories on the phone other than "DCIM" and "BLUETOOTH". I can't see where the ringtones are kept.
how to install java apps via USB
This question may be related to my other posting on ringtones, but I suspect its a little different, so I've created another thread.
I'm assuming the Java app must be a MIDLet. I've created one of those and its works fine in the emulator that comes with the Sun Java Toolkit.
I can connect to the PC fine and transfer files to the card. I can transfer files to the phone using file manager, but I don't see the directory where the other java apps are installed (i.e. games). In addition, I expect there may be other things that need to be done (register?). Has anyone been able to install a java app on the m500? If so, please post detailed instructions.
Also the # of 'entries" is 500 but each name, phone number and email is a separate 'entry". In other words you will only get about 120 to 150 records into the device.
Setting up A2DP
I am wondering if anyone has instructions on how to get the A2DP working on the M500. I have tried 2 different headsets one of them being the WEP200 and a Sony 608. I want to listen to my mp3's through bluetooth and I cannot get it to work. There is an option in the media player that says bluetooth and when I select it I pick headset and it says no device attached. I have the headset paired correctly and it works for everything else except A2DP. Please help me it is driving me crazy!!!

Sanyo versus Samsung
I'm comparing the Sanyo 6600 Katana and the Samsung M500 and seem to find a lot of people on Cnet review saying that Sanyo in general builds better quality phones than Samsung.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
