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

What type of memory card is compatible with this phone?

The phone does not come with a USB cable or memory card. I bought a Kingston 2G micro SD memory card and reader. However, the phone inconsistently reads the card. The files appear initially and I may be able to listen to a song, but the next thing I know it says the memory card is empty. If I turn the phone off and turn it back on, the files re-appear on the memory card. Do I have the wrong type of card or is there something wrong with this phone? It also froze up when playing music from the memory card. I really like the design of the phone, but it has been frustrating me when it comes to trying to use the memory card.

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..

Is it recommended for basic phone functionality?

Hi, folks.

I'm not a very technical type of guy. I primarily use my cellular phone as a cellular phone. I do moderate text messaging, I rarely exceed my 400/mo limit, and I don't have much opportunity to listen to personal music devices.

Currently, I have the MotoRazr V3 (basic model) and have had it for two years. The only problem I've ever had with it is the dust particles that get trapped in the screen and make it completely impossible to view in direct light (I've had it replaced twice). Now that I've decided it's time for an upgrade, I'm considering a slider. I figure the Rizr would have about the same functionality as the Razr, and was just about set on that when I saw the fuss over the Samsung Blast. It's definitely sexier than...

Adding to dictionary?

Anyone know how to add entries to the T9 dictionary? Can't seem to find a way to do it, and that'd be a pretty big deal-breaker...

Thanks!

Two major problems for heavy text users

1. Like all other T-Mobile Samsungs, I am pretty sure I verified (while at a store) that this model does not allow you to use downloaded sounds for text alerts. The included message alerts are all childish and annoying.

2. You can't escape t-mobile's SMS-based IM system because of their infamous java-blocking. Otherwise you could install an internet-based Java messenger.

I'm not sure...

...I understand you, Eric.

You say:

"The Blast is yet another weapon in T-Mobile's vast arsenal for these people (texters)."

But also:

"But unfortunately the Blast is not - a blast - to use. You should still check out the full range of T-Mobile's messaging armada if you're considering this phone."

Is it a good messaging phone or not?

SureType Questions

I want a little more detail on using the SureType pad on this phone:

    Does it work well with the T9?

    Is the T9 adaptive/does it learn words easily?

    How does it compare with the BB Pearl's pad?

    Does it address word dialing, i.e. can I dial 800-GOOG-411 easily?

    You said the pad lends itself to two thumb typing, but is the pad large enough to do so, and can one-hand be done as effectively with a little practice?

making calls

You said

"However making calls works slightly differently, at least from the home screen, because of the MyFaves application. Instead of the green send key opening up a list of recent calls, it dials the person currently in front on the MyFaves application."

The Blast has a new myfaves feature that allows you to minimize the myfaves by pressing the disconnect key and they will reappear by pressing the ok key. When they are minimized, the green send key DOES bring up the recent calls list.

consumer friendly

the consumer email is pretty amazing. i mean using email through text was ingenious.

it also uses T-mobiles new Network Address Book service, which stores your contacts on their server, for free.
