A680 on Qwest

Hey I am switching to Qwest soon and REALLY want the A680. It is discontinued with Qwest online, but I know I recently saw it at a Qwest Solutions kiosk at Cherry Creek Mall in Denver a few weeks ago. Anyone been by a kiosk more recently and seen one? I can honestly say i would rather have the samsung than the 8300.

I have a usb data cable for this phone.
I believe that you can upload pictures to your PC with this. How do you do that?
Where do you download that software???

I just read a product spec sheet for the data cable for this phone and it states that you can't download images with it and is just for syncing up Outlook is there any input about this... Is there a cable out there that will do both...?

a680 apps.

question, i can go to like and download ringers and screensavers perfectly, but if i try to go to a website to have applications directly sent to my phone it pops up asking if i want to launch the app. i choose yes than it pops up a download handler which directs me to sprint stuff, if i choose no it closes out, how can i get applications sent to my phone like i can ringers and stuff, can i email them to myself on my phone or something? cause i really dont feel like wasting the money to buy a usb cable and stuff, there should be a way to visit these sites and get what i want without using this download handler.?

any help reply here or aol im me @ fri3d2l0ng

a680 - All sounds gone, but still vibrates

About 2-3 weeks ago my ringer started to die. Whenever a call came in or my alarm went off it would be fine on the first ring and then fade to nothing on subsequent rings. About 2-3 days ago the sound completely died. The vibration still works fine. I can also hear people fine when I talk to them. It's just that the alarm/ring is gone.

Has this happened to anyone else's phone? I saw on another forum ( that this is a known bug, but I didn't see anything here. So, I want to make sure that it's true.

phone keeps shutting off

phone has become increasingly sensitive and shuts down alot. in my pocket, if it's sqeezed too tight, even a couple times when i simply flipped it closed it turned off.
wondering if this is a defect or common to these phones. it's an especially bad problem with the mirror screen saver on the outside lcd, which doesn't let you know if it's on or off.

Airtime, Last Call feature`

I was curious as to how the Last Call feature works on this phone! I previously had a samsung sph-n370 phone and the last call feature on that phone worked perfectly(indicating the exact last incoming or outgoing call, time, date, etc... However, with this a680 phone, I find that the last call feature isn't very accurate. It seems to work most times with the last outgoing call. But when I receive an incoming call, it seems to indicate the name/number and airtime of the last incoming call, but the date and time of the call prior to the last call. I know this probably doesn't make much sense, but does anyone out there use this feature and if so can you please tell me how yours works? Is this feature messed up on my phone or what? Much a...

DO not get A680, poor camera quality and features

If your looking at the a680 be prepared to be dissapointed.

I had some pretty amazing photos taken, though low quality, the scenarios they captured were priceless. however, not only is it nearly impossible to take the pictures from the phone to the computer (no cable or software is provided from samsung, and the 3rd party stuff like futuredial is CRAP) once a picture is deleted, it is gone for good.

so if you have something real swell, and you hit the wrong button once, they picture is gone forever. instant devestation. learn from me, get something that actually has the consumer in mind.

I need a tight fitting case!!!

I need a case that is tight fitting that doesn't leave the phone cracked open a little (as the "Body Glove Fusion Cellsuit with Swivel-Clip for Samsung A680 Cell Phones 9009101" did)or doesn't fall off easy and block the camera (as the "CellStar Swivel-Clip Case for Samsung A680 Cell Phone BB381614" did). Anyone have any suggestions. I don't like the idea of the phone being open even a little, because it seems very easy for dirt and dust to get in there. Thanks for any help....
