phone function shutting off
I just got the 760 and man am I impressed, more about that later. I need to know if theres a way to make the phone portion stay on all the time. A few times perhaps due to the fact my battery was low the phone part would shut off and I wouldnt get any txts or phone calls. I would wake up and get to work to find out its off, turn it on and have a few important phone calls that i missed. Any suggestions?
i760 or XV6800?

I760 vs 6800
flickering Display in landscape mode
* In Landscape mode (when the display dims down) it start flickering (usually in Internet explorer, more visible when receiving data or ), i was wondering does anybody know if it's a faulty display or it has something to do with power management?
* The other issue is I don't get notified when new email arrives, I have it set to beep & flash. I receive the new email notification in messages but otherwise it doesn't do anything else, this is specially annoying when the screen in dark, i have to keep checking my phone for new emails. Any thoughts?

I cant receive mms messages?
Currently I have the old EnV, the one before the new voyager. I was thinking of upgrading to this but had questions based on the data usage. Is there any charge to sync programs and email through outlook through your computer? Can I access wireless internet, say from my router, without having to pay data charges? I guess I'm just confused on when the data will be used. I understand if I'm EVDO I will be charged. Thanks for any help.

I returned my i760 today
1) Terrible reception. My i760 dropped at least 10 calls per day. I got dropped calls at home, at the office and on the drive in between... is this normal for an i760?? Are others having this problem?
2) Voice recognition was completely worthless. With my E815 I could dial by name or by number flawlessly out of the box. The voice dialing on the i760 was worthless and I could not find anywhere to train it to my voice.
There were a lot of things I liked about the phone, like the numeric keypad on the outside, which I used often because the voice commands did not work...
These are the two that made the phone a N...

iR - umm....not ...?
I have a friend that has the i760, I recently just got the xv6800. I was talking to him about whether or not I should have considered the i760 instead when it was found that neither of us could find an iR port on the i760, also, checking in connection settings where my previous smartphones and current xv6800 all show "beam" for a connection (meaning iR) the i760 does not show that.
Does the i760 REALLY have an iR port or not?
