Help Finding Replacement Antenna
I need helping finding a replacement internal antenna for my sch-u740. The part number is BA79B. I have found sites selling replacement parts, but none had the internal antenna. Any help as to where i could look to find this part would be greatly appreciated.
help me? i have a glitch
They mentioned the fact that it's difficult to text in portrait mode, but also difficult to enter the phone number you're sending the text to in landscape mode.
What they didn't mention, is that you can start your text in portrait mode, enter the number you're going to send it to, arrow down to enter the message, and then quickly flip the phone into landscape mode to enter the text.
You can also set the delay time for the flip so that you don't end up losing any info you've entered. I set mine for 3 seconds, but I probably don't even need that much time.
It sounds like a lot in the description, but wh...

Can "Dummy Phone" keypads be installed on a real phone?
The reason I'd want to do this is because I much prefer recently redesigned keys, which better distinguish the 12 keys used for voice dialing without making the letters hard to read when turned sideways for QWERTY texting. Note the difference in these pictures:

mp3 display madness
I'm using the SCH-u740 (not sure if that's the same as the Alias but my phone is about 1 yr old and looks like the model displayed on the info webpage).
I want to start using it as an mp3 player. I bought a 2gb micro SD card, got it formatted, and have the VCAST music manager which I purchased from Verizon. Using either this program or Windows Media Player I am able to get mp3s transferred to the phone micro SD card without any problem.
Now herein lies the problem. I am very particular that I be able to find my mp3s in the phone's menu system, which allows me to lookup the songs by album, artist, or genre. For this reason, I am making sure to fix the mp3 tags before synching them to my cell phon...
Sorry if this is old subject matter and my question is not specific to the SCH-U740......I just got this phone and am happy so far but the ringtones suck. I am looking for a chime type of ring sound or beep that basically sounds once and does not repeat. The single beep option all ready on the phone is barely audible, even at max volume. My cell service is Horizon and I have been unable to find anything in "Get it Now" except for songs and obnoxious flatulence sounds. Any suggestions on where to look? Thanks for your time.

Phone Powering Off During Charging
I have contacted Verizon and they replaced the phone stating they have not heard about the problem. The new phone has done the same thing. Samsung says they are not aware of the problem but suggested I replace the charger. Yesterday I replaced the charger and still the same problem.
Verizon now seems to think there may be a software error... but because it is so new they have no other answer. They say when there is a new software update I can bring it in to be updated.
Does anyone else have this problem?
