Addressbook Synchronization and Data cable

Can anyone tell me how can I synchronize my address book from Outlook to my phone?

Is there a data cable available to do that? Do I need special software for it. My phone didn't come with any accessories.

Software glitch in calendar & alarms?

Seems like there is a "software" glitch in the organizer section of the phone...particularily with the events calendar and the alarms.

A message will pop-up on the main screen "9 calendar events" and then I click on the soft-key to view...nothing. The phone will just go back to it's main screen. Then sometimes the phone will reset itself by shutting off/on if I don't close the slider right away, and had left the phone open.

Then if I try to go under the calendar section, click on "missed alarm events", the phone will momentarily lock, then turn itself off/on.

Any suggestions? I'm perplexed!! Eh? Confused

Music Player

How am I suppose to transfer my music to microSD? Use data cable or eject my microSD, plug in to my computer and trnasfer music?

What about headphone? My phone just came with one ear piece. Being a music player, they won't even give a real headphone.

Samsung Blast reset code

Just fyi, handy reset phone to restore factory settings. You will lose ALL downloaded ringtones and media, but it's great if you need to reset your T9 dictionary or whatever.

1) power off
2) remove sim card, power on
3) *2767*3855#
4) wait for reboot
5) once rebooted, power off
6) insert sim card, reboot
7) phone is back to factory settings

Smilies?! Emoticons?!

This is my third Samsung slider. I just got it today and getting use to the Qwerty keyboard is just odd. I'm a super fast texter on a regular 9 pad but now I'm turtle slow. Anyway. . . I use to be able to hit the "1" button a couple of times and get a : ) and it would change to ; ) or : * or Sad and I can not find a feature on this phone that will give me a quick smiley! Anybody have any tips?!

Thanks! Smile

AOL and Yahoo...

That's all it does right now. So if you're a Gmail fanatic, or MSN, Hotmail, SBC, TNT (AC/DC rules), you're out of luck... For now. Just factor this..

It should be noted that Hotmail email accounts are not supported (blame Microsoft for this, they don't allow POP or IMAP access to Hotmail) by the built in email client.
