ear splitting ringer (Star Trek)

For those of you out there like me who need a very loud ringer I thought you might be interested in this info. Go to Xringer on Verizon's get it now, then go to the star trek section, then select the "sonar" ringtone. I cannot believe how loud it is...There are also some other very cool ringtones. I have the communicator sounds as my regular ring tone and the bridge hail as my message tone. I also created a cool screensave since I am a mega sci-fi geek. if anyone wants it I posted it at... ... »

Why does phone shut off if I leave it charging over night?

I missed many calls becasue of this, and theres nothing about it in the manual. Is there a way to stop the phone from shutting down? I need a phone that can stay on and charge at the same time. Does it shut off to save the battery ? This sucks if it does because no other phone does that, by the way this is my first samsung phone. any solutions to this is greatly appreciated.

Got mine 4/21

All -

I picked mine up last night. After about 30 mins of the VZW store trying to figure out how to enter it in their system, I was in line at tech support waiting for them to transfer the information from my old phone to my new N330.

A few things about this phone:

It is very light. I hardly notice it in my pocket. I wish it came with a holster, or pouch of some sort. The buttons "push" with a solid feel and a "click". Speaker phone works very well - very clear on both ends. It does work with the "slide" closed. I am impressed.

I do notice slightly decreased reception. For example - with my A530 I had reception in my garage, and when I pulled in last night, my new N330 lost service. Not a big deal to me.

Use while open

Anyone figure out how to get the phone to work while closed? I find it rather annoying that I have to open the phone to turn it on or off... I previously had a Kyocera SE47 slider and had to take out the magnet to get it to work while closed.

Question on N330 earpiece "audio"...

Just got my new N330 yesterday. So far I like the phone OK...very easy to program/set-up and use. Having a LG-4500 previously, having a little bit of a time getting use to the small size. This is my 1st bar/slider phone. Does seem to hold a signal a bit better than my LG did indoors.

Question...One thing I've noticed over my LG is that when I'm listening to a conversation, if someone is talking in the background on the other end, the sound seems to kinda cut in and out...or how can I describe "blurp". My LG was more of a constant or consistant sound or background noise, this one goes silent. As far as hearing the person who's actually speaking in their mouthpiece, when they speak I hear them just fine. The caller also said...

Ring&vibe w/custom ringtone?

I have been unable to get the ring&vibe feature to work with custom ringtones. Is it only operational with built in ringtones? Would hpe not but if so I guess I will have to live with it. Was finally able to get the Bugs and mouse playing piano wallpaper downloaded and cannot have any other ringer besides the rhapsody bugs ringtone with it.

I'm not so sure I like this phone. I've had one nasty static issue. If it comes back again, the phone itself will go back to Verizon.

Wish it had some games preprogrammed on it.

When down there paid nothing for it and after they manually programmed it since it is not in the system yet it works fine.. only thing is I cant tell if you can call and answer w/ out the slide going up...

About this release

I*ve never watched the release of a phone through Verzion (or any company for that matter) this closely before so:

Whenever the N330 is released will it be in EVERY Verizon store on that release day or will some stores/parts of the country get it first?
