Its Going Back - II
I'm very disappointed in this phone. I'll be writing a more thorough review soon. However, the main problem is only about 50% of the incoming calls actually go through. The calls that don't go to VM. This is with the signal indicater at full strength in known location for a good signal. The 2nd issue is outgoing calls. I'm told they are often choppy with a lot of word loss (the other end might get every 2nd word).
I have other issues with Samsung that I only learned about by having one for a few days. I'll put those in my review. On a positive note, it worked well on the GSM side.
How do you get this phone?
Locked or Unlocked
Verizon "get it NOW" Not Working on SCH-A790
One bad piece of news...I've been working with Verizon TechSupport for a week and am still unable to use the "get it NOW" service.
It is everything that I hoped it would be.....
It is a solid/hefty phone--not that cheap plastic crap that Verizon has been pushing lately. The picture quality is excellent (though nothing I'd print out and put in a frame)--just better than any of my friend's phone.
My last phone was the Motorola V60, so this is a step up in features for me. I'm not missing Bluetooth or any of the other features that everyone else is complaining about.
Also, I got a great price--about $150.00. If I paid the nearly $400.00 that is listed, I probably wouldn't be so thrilled--actually I wouldn't have bought the phone.
As it is, I couldn't be happier...
Please give me no. to call to get this phone
It's going back
I live in a small town north of LA and even though signal strength looks good, I get about 40% dropped calls. Also, when I place a call, it only goes thru about 50% of the time. My wife is also on VZ with her LG VX4400 and she pulls in much better performance at any given location.
Maybe this reception issue will get worked out with updates in the future, but for now, it's not ready for prime time---in my area anyway.
Got mine today
Thanks to all the VZ guys (you know who you are) that made this possible.
Only lacking things are speakerphone and bluetooth...why cant they just put everything in?
Cant wait to go test it in the International Market...
Quick question for anyone who can answer: I have International Service through rent-a-phone....am stuck in the $10/...
Any news about the June 7th Launch?
Any inside news about the June 7th Launch? Is it really going to be available. It seems like most people in the know are sounding off on this. Should I really give up on the A790 after having waited for almost 6 months?
Why the urgent need for this phone?
It's only OK
pvravi - i was just kidding re video
Hey Rich, any word on the phones dimensions
A790 Workable On Sprint Network?
Would an 'unlocked' version of the SCH-A790 work on the Sprint CDMA network?
Once this phone is more widely available, how could one go about making this happen if it is possible?
Also, whether or not I have this on Sprint or Verizon's network, how does one use it on a GSM network? For instance, could I use this phone on AWS in the USA if I wanted to?
