Streaming Music

Has anyone found a way to stream internet radio to the sync without using MobiRadio? Also, can I use the wired headset for functions not available to my bluetooth stereo headset?

Samsung 5 item bundle quick review

I picked up a nice package deal through an Amazon.com seller.

For $23, I thought some of you might be interested. I am in no way affiliated with the seller or Amazon.

It includes a USB cable (Charges phone too,) adapter with mic and call answer/end button providing a 3.5mm (AKA 1/8" mini jack,)one more without the mic/switch PC Studio, a wired stereo hands-free and a pair of cheezy yet Samsung branded (everything in the kit is Samsung branded) 3.5mm earbuds.

Clearly, the two hot items are the USB and switchable mic adapter, as I have downloaded the software already. Now I can play my music or take calls through my car stereo, or use my iPod headphones (which are much better than the included items.)

The stereo handsfree has m...

mp3 ringtones

i switched to the a-707 and and my mp3 ringtones that worked on my other mp3 capable phone dont work on it. Samsung.com said they need to ne 600kb or less. they are all under 500kb. 1 out of 50 worked and they all meet the requirements. Am I doing something wrong?

Text reader

I tried something the other day and it didn't end up working like I was wanting. I'm hoping there is a better way to do this.
I want to be able to put a text file on to my phone, and read it from the phone fairly easily. I tried this and while the file copied and opened ok, the application (Picsel Viewer) doesn't seem to be aimed at reading text. I could see my file, and with way too many key presses I could zoom in close enough to read some of it, but the text didn't wrap for the small screen, so I had to scroll left and right, and it was so slow and awkward I gave up after reading the first line.
Is there a better text file reading/viewing application either on the phone or available to put on it?
I also tried opening the browser and...

Turn off email notification?

I set up the Yahoo email client and it wants to tell me every time I get an email. Besides un-caching my password, can I turn this notification off? If so, how?
Also, is there a POP client available for this phone so I don't have to use Yahoo (or one of the other handful of services offered)?
Thanks!

Maximum MicroSD card capacity

I haven't seen a figure or a definitive yes or no on SDHD compatibility. Does anyone here know? I have a 2 GB card that is working well at the moment, but have been tempted by some good deals on 4 GB SDHD cards. Anyone know if they will work?

MP3 player, ringtones, and playlists

I'm a new owner of the sync and so far it seems to meet my needs pretty well. I just got my headphone adapter (OEM with microphone) and a 2 GB card so I'm looking forward to using this as my music player when I'm cycling and running.
I copied some music on to the card (in the Music folder) and the application I used, Media Monkey also put playlists for each album into the Playlists folder.
My first problem is that these playlists are not recognized by the phone. When in the music player if I select Playlists, the list comes up blank. So what do I need to do to make .m3u (or any format really) playlist import into the phone's player?
Mostly, I just want to be able to shuffle through all songs, and I see that is an option. But I have so...

HOW

I have the A707, and for everything it can do, I have found that there are ten things it WONT do.
-How do I take a picture from my phone to my computer (via USB)?
- No matter what, I cant turn a MP3 clip(as short as 9 secs) into a ring tone. How do I turn it into a file it will read?
-How am I supposed to convert a MP3 to a mmf? Why should I even have too? This phone seems like it cant do anything unless you pay for it first.

Free unlock code

I found a cool site just for the Samsung Sync and there is an unlock code for free sinkintosync.com Hope this helps everyone trying to unlock. There's also instructions for doing just about everything you can think of with your Sync including putting games on it without having to use your phones wap.

To those of you who have the A707 reception issues

I would like to try this with a few people to see if this works. I come across a lot of phones from warranty that have reception issues, and the Samsung Sync takes the cake by far.. So I would like to know if I could get a few volunteers to try this out on their phones to see if we can get better service using permanent 2G service instead of 3G.

If you are interested try these few steps out and please post the results back here.

This is how you can change from 3G to 2G:

Press 277634#*#

Then go through the menu:

5. Modem Setting
2. Network Mode
1. Network Mode
2. 2G only
Then, after you have done that, if you are having problems with the earpiece volume also, hit your back button and go to:

7. GSM Speech Ver
Select ...
