Toggling the front display

I was just wondering if there was an option on this phone to toggle the front display backlight on and off without actually having to open the phone.

I like to be able to check the time without having to open it up. I've found that you can do this by holding any of the buttons around the side of the phone, but is there any way to do it with just the press of one button?

Sorting Contact List?

On my old phone, I could view my contact list by entry #. I read in the manual that it can be sorted like this with the u740, but I can't figure it out. I would like to sort my contact list by # instead of alphabetically. Can anyone help?

powering off on its own

has anyone had problems with this phone powering itself off then powering itself back on? im still on a 30 day trial with Verizon. took it back to the store, agent said it needed reprograming, in which he did, but if it did not happen again a week later. i plan on taking it back & telling them to switch it out because i REALLY like this phone. VZW rep said no one else has ever had this problem. im asking you all out there if you have or have not so i can let them know it is a possible problem. i had it to power itself off, then back on while attempting a text msg & this last time, i was downloading ringtones. thanks.

Mobile IM

I was using the Mobile IM feature (from the messaging menu), and at some point I saw an option for a free upgrade. So I did it. Well, now I have to go to the Get-It-Now / Extra options menu to get into AIM. The option is no longer under the MOBILE-IM option (#Cool under messaging !! What gives !! ??

I also see NO WAY to manage the applications on this thing. The online steps of how to go to the "manage apps" menu item are not correct, and I can't locate any such option. There appears to be no option to disable or uninstall an app to free up memory.

Anybody have any ideas, or similar problem ??

Music question.

Hello,
I just ordered a micro sd card and was wondering if i would be able to put music on the card with my computer and be able to listen to it on the phone or if i would have to purchase a data cable for the phone. And if i do need a data cable, would i need software to put the music on the phone? Any info helps. Thanks!

voice record options

i noticed today while on a phone call, on the front screen on the bottom right corner is an 'options' choice. i clicked it & noticed the option for voice record. i clicked it, it appeared to be recording the call but once you get out of it, where do you go to hear the voice record? is this feature actually recording a call or whats it about? can someone please tell where do i find the recorded info on this phone? thanks.

Question about the hinge

I just bought the sch-u740 from Verizon and I really like this phone although I'm slightly concerned with the hinge. When my phone is closed, it wiggles slightly, does anyone else's phone do this? Is it normal?

Exiting Txt on Front Display???

I know that we can read text messages on the front display, which I like a lot. I was wondering if anyone has found a way of exiting out off a message without opening the phone?? I had the lg 8300 and you could hit one of the front display buttons and it would exit it. But everything I've tried doesn't work unless you open the phone.

Operating System

I am a java programmer. I just realized (don't ask why it didn't dawn on me earlier) that many programs are written for phone in java! Well, the natural curiosity in me is screaming now to find a shell of the operating system, write a program that'll run in this environment, and then put it on my phone to prove to myself that I've done this. Here's the problem: I can't find what OS this phone is running!

Here's the questions:
1. What Operating Environment is this phone utilizing?

2. What shell is available to emulate this environment?

3. How would I go about getting the program on my phone once I've written them?

Thank y'all!

Thinking about the u740 on Verizon...

My new-every-2 is up in a week. I currently have the LG VX 8100 (which is the best phone that I've ever had), and am thinking about upgrading to the U740. Questions:

1) Is the keyboard usable on a day-to-day basis? I've looked at a few demo phones, and the keys seem awfully small (but on par with the sidekick). I think I can manage to type, but does regularly dialing phone number get cumbersome?

2) What's the durability of this phone? Is the hinge sturdy?

3) BIG QUESTION-do any professionals out there use this phone, or is predominately for kids? At first glance, I thought it would be a home run...I could make calendar entries via the web, send quick text messages when I am unable to answer the phone (meetings), and send ful...
