touch screen problems

Has anyone else had touch screen problems? I bought two of these phones for my daughter and I and both have had the same problem with the touch screen. The sensor moves too far to the right which means things on the left side cannot be used. I have reset it, rebooted, and took it into the store. The verdict: I need a new $100 screen. Now that the second phone has this problem, I think it must be a manufacture's problem and would like comment from anyone else who has experienced this.

My Thoughts, Good and Bad....

Very Happy I work at at&t and I own the Samsung Eternity. I absolutely love it!!! The Mythic is a great replacement phone for the Eternity. The only complaint I have would be for Samsung.....How many of the exact same phones will they make for at&t before they get it RIGHT?? Actually, I think they may have almost gotten it perfected. First came the Eternity, great camera, I'm likein the touch screen, expandable memory,Wigits are awesome, great features all around, and to top it all off, I gotta have my FloTV! Then came the Impression, same exact phone with updated Wigits, and they replaced FloTV with a slide out keyboard. Good and bad, some people don't wish to pay more for the FloTV, and it worked. Another great companion phone to pitch to custome...

Mythic sync contacts with Outlook?


I've got mixed information about whether the version of "PC Studio" that works with the Samsung Mythic allows you to sync the contacts from Microsoft Outlook. I know it works for Solstice.

Has anyone got it to work?

my new mythic gets hot when in use

Does anybody else have this problem? I noticed that when I'm on the phone for a few minutes, it feels very warm. After I hang up, it cools down.

I just got the phone last week and am wondering if I should go back to Radio Shack and get a replacement...

Thanks for any feedback.

Mythic Crash/Reboot in Music Player

I loaded up an SD card and started messing with the music player on my Mythic. First couple of songs played fine, then I tried to switch artists and the phone just rebooted. Went back into music player, selected a different artist and track, pushed play, the phone rebooted again. And again.

I've got another SD on the way, but do you think that's the problem? I was using a SanDisk 2GB that came with my phone. I bought a SanDisk 8GB which should arrive soon... Any help would be appreciated as right now my music player is completely unusable.
