TV updating?

Every once in a while I look down and see the Orange Circle with the TV logo inside on my phones display page. I don't subscribe or use this feature, I'm just trying to see if there's a way to turn this off permanently.

no music?!?

Hey so I got the Eternity June 2009 and have thoroughly enjoyed it...up to the point where about a month or two ago the music would no longer play. I tried to shock/restart it and everything, but nothing. Luckily it was/still is under the 1yr warranty, so I called customer service (AT&T) and they sent me a new phone. Worked great...until yesterday it decided to not play music anymore! The day before I was listening and playing music all day and nothing was wrong. I'm thinking about calling customer service again to get a new one but I want to see if there is something that I can do to fix it. So...any tips??

why

Did they discontinue the Eternity? And since it's discontinued, what if you have to do a warranty exchange? Will you still recieve the same model phone?

MP3 problems...

I just bought my eternity from a friend and when i loaded mp3 ringtones and music onto the device, it becomes overly loud and scratchy when played and the volume reverses itself (aka 7 is the quietest and 1 is the loudest) and even when i set it to 7, it is still WAY TOO loud! Has anyone else had this problem or know of any way to fix it? Thanks in advance.

Saving Text messages to MicroSD memory card?

Is it possible to do this? It appears you can only save 500 text messages, so I was hoping to save them to the memory card instead of to the phone/SIM card.

We are on AT&T and I want to be able to read all of my childs text messages, but by the time it gets to 500 I haven't read them yet.

thanks!

Saving phone numbers in the address book

Just got the Eternity. Love it... almost. We brought over our old sim card since it had all the contacts already in it. Many of the numbers got mixed up in the transition regarding what type of phone it is. For example, Home numbers keep showing up as Work and vice/versa. Everytime I change this and click Save everything seems to work fine until I exit the address book. Then when I go back, it's mixed up the numbers again.

Can anyone please help with this? I have 2-3 numbers for many of my contacts and I want just 1 address book entry for each contact with their associated numbers in their record.

Great phone if I can resolve this! Also, I've created new entries and it still happens. Very frustrating! Help is appreciated!!

Email setup for company mail - need some help

I went to the MEdia Net icon - then to Favorites - entered the URL Address for my email server "mail.xxxx.com" and saved it. when you go back thru MEdia Net you'll find your favorite and when you press it you will be taken to you email URL. Then you have to type in your email address section before the @symbol and your PW. It works OK BUT.......

What I would like to know is how can I enter in my address and password into the favorite URL field so it I don't have to key it in?

What magic symbols do you uses? commas, dashes,slashes???

How to type in a Zero in the Eternity

I feel really stupid for asking this but how do you type a 0 (zero) into a text message in the keypad mode with t9 on? I've been trying to figure it out for a while but to no avail. I know I could just turn it into qwerty mode and type it in from there but that's a lot for one number.

Exchange ActiveSync and Eternity

Is there a way to allow my new Eternity phone to receive emails via MS Outlook/Exchange? I did see some prior postings indicating this capability may be coming soon.

Thanks, Gregh

Pairing bluetooth to Toyota Camry

I have the Samsung Eternity and a 2009 Camry Toyota. This is the second phone I've used with the vehicle. No problems pairing my previous phone; an LG, but with this one I have to pair the phone every time I want to use it.

Bluetooth is enabled on both devices. Any suggestions?
