Samsung Upstage

Hello all. I wanted to see if anyone else has had or is having this problem. On my phone, the red battery (the phone battery) actually drains first instead of the green (wallet) battery. This is a big deal cause when I want to listen to music like say after 11 am this morning--1 and half hours into listening music--my phone says it needs to recharge even though the battery wallet is full. . . it was explained to me that the wallet drains first then the phone.

So, do others phones work the opposite of mine?? I"m hoping Sprint will change this out for me since I'm still within the 30 days and I guess if they say no I'll switch the M1 as this phone is not as impressive as the made it sound to be.

NEW PRL FOR THIS PHONE!

There is a new prl for this phone make sure they update it before you leave the sprint store. If you already own it call tech support and they'll push it to your phone.
just did it this morning. The guys at the sprint store will tell you that it's current but it's not

Issues I have heard of

I have been hearing lots of bad feedback on this phone in 2 areas. Before I pick one up I was wondering if people here had heard the same.

The issues are:
1. Bluetooth Stereo only works for music not
videos and media player, ever sprint radio
2. Battery wallet make any bluetooth headset
sound bad unless held up to the head

Thanks in advance for your help.

text message volume change

hey, are you guys experiencing the same issue where if you get a text message it is the "Increasing from lower to louder volume"? Maybe it's just me but I'd prefer to have it just be loud and not do the lower to louder feature. Or at least have the option to change it. Also, I'm trying to hack the OS to let me change the larger screen quick links from the "Factory default" music ones.. If you guys are also trying let me know where you stand.... DL

Text dictation?

The phone scoop spec list mentions text dictation. I have checked the manuals and searched the menu. I don't think this phone has this option. Can anyone confirm.

Power save mode causes screen to stay on

When power save mode is off... the screen on the phone side goes off (not dim) after 8 seconds (unless you set it otherwise). But once you turn on power save mode... the phone side's screen STAYS LIT... ALWAYS!! How is this saving my battery?

Totally agree w/conclusion...

I got swept up with this phone's wow-factor but soon realized its shortcomings and returned it. The flipping thing is cool, but downright cumbersome.

For Some of the reviewers

The case that comes with the phone does not need to be open to talk. When you use the case with your phone you can leave it close and hear perfectly clear and vice versa, they can hear you clearly.

Thinking about switching to m610

I just bought this phone. I love the functions but I just am not sure I will get used to anything but a clamshell phone. Does the music play output have the same quality? I'm talking about the headphone jack. Sounds decent on the 620 when hooked up to my truck, can i expect the same from the 610? I am not worried about using a few extra buttons to get to the player if it is the same thing. I also will most likley never have the wallet when I will actually need it so the 610 will be a bit more friendly in that aspect. Anyone know when telenav will be supported? Love the phone otherwise. I am really worried about ruining this screen, they did not put protection bumps so a grain of sand can ruin the screen.

Need help with 2 things that i'm sure everyone has noticed

1. Is there a way to access your text inbox from the phone screen. I know if you recieve a text you can respond from that screen... but I want to be able to just go to my inbox and reply there without fliping the phone. Sad

2. One thing that annoys me is that the ringers dont start playing right away. It just vibrates... then is starts ringing very low and escalates to normal volume. Crying or Very sad

TeleNAV

Does anyone know if it gets TeleNAV? The 610 does, so this should. That is the deciding factor for me to switch from my Fusic.

this may be a stupid question...

... but how do you text message on it? do you just type on the back with out reading as you type? (not that i think i have to check every couple of letters to make sure i'm getting it right, it just seems illogical) i just don't see how that will work out for most cell users...

nice phone

I want to say i like the idea, but why? what the heck is the point of having 2 screens? why couldnt it all be one one side? I still think personally the chocolate phone is the best mp3 player phone. if you disagree with me on that, respond, and tell me which phone you think is the best "mp3/phone" wise.
