Where do I find software?!

Anyone know where I can get a copy of the snapsync that works with this phone or any other software that will sync outlook with the phone book or allow me to use it as a modem?

Please answer these questions.

1. How can I import midi files to my phone?

2. What software is needed to do this?

Here is my deal, I have midi files that I had on a another phone that want on my A680. I know thru another provider I could just send the file like a picture and save it to my phone and it would go my ringers list. But I can't do that with this Sprint phone. Help.

Muffled Sound on the A680?

I just got this phone, and everyone I've spoken to says that my voice sounds very muffled. I swaped it for a second, and the same issue is still occuring. I actually gave the phone to a friend and called to see what people meant and my friend's voice sounded muffled on it too. It's really quite aweful, and I'm pretty dissapointed because the phone is so cool. Has anyone else experienced this?

Firmware Update Methods

Can someone help me....

I bought the phone not long ago and im wondering what are the possible ways to get a firmware update?

Can I directly use my phone?
Do I have to go to the Sprint Store?
Can I use a cable?

I probably cant make use of the latter two, so what do I do?

MANY GLITCHES in the current firmware. Please help.

External Screen

If not in use, my external screen shuts off completely. It actually looks like the phone is off. This is the first phone I've seen that does this. I would prefer if it stayed on, with a clock or something of the sort so I can see what time it is without opening the phone... Is there a way I can change my phone from shutting off the external screen completely?

I know I can change the style of the clock on the external screen, but can I make it so that it doesn't completely shut off?

Picture Quality Compared to A600

Is the picture quality on this phone as good or better than with the Samsung a600? The picture quality with the a600 is simply amazing and the answer to this question will determine whether or not I upgrade to the a680. Thanks.

Samsung VM-A680: downloaded pics on external lcd?

Does anyone know how to get the external LCD to display downloaded images for the caller ID? So far, I have only been able to get pictures taken with the built-in camera to display properly on the external screen. When I assign a downloaded image, it will display on the large screen, but not the small one. I really want my own custom graphics for caller ID's. Any ideas?

a680 - Can the external LCD do picture ID?

If I assign a picture to a contact will the picture show on the external LCD if the person calls? I have downloaded a picture. It shows as a wallpaper when I assign it to the contact yet when the person calls it only shows on the internal LCD. Help!

Firmware update?

I'm running xc15 firmware and I noticed that the latest is xc27.

Is there any way to update the firmware with the usb cable? I have yet to find a program that can actually interact with this phone, but I am wanting to update the firmware on my phone "vm-680"


Also, has anyone else had any proble,ms accessing msn hotmail/messenger? I get to the login screen, and I cant get any farther. It just keeps bringing me back to the login screen. Seems like a bug or something...?

SMS on Samsung A680

I currently have an A500, and I'm considering the A680. Does the SMS on the A680 reside on the phone, or is it on the server like the A500? Thanks.
