Why do they still use the big ol' antenna?

I find it hard to believe they couldn't modify the headphone jack to accommodate a tri-wire headset so that the big long wire going to your headset couldn't act as a good antenna for additional boost - same thing with the car adapter. I would imagine they could make the internal antenna adequate otherwise.

Will an OEM Unlocked version (ever) be available?

Anyone have a sense of the possibility or likelihood that an unlocked version of the i730 might ever be available? (or is that only done with GSM's?)

IR can control home entertainment equipment?

Did anyone else notice this? -->

Infrared (IR) can control home entertainment equipment

Does it mean that they have a higher powered IR transmitter than required for the usual "sync" to a PC?

No camera? Who cares? I need speaker phone!

No camera? who cares? Sure, it would be nice to have one for my OCD gadget conscious, and in agreement with someone else that posted: I have my own 5MP camera on the side, and don't need one on the phone. Besides, the quality of phone pics are hardly worth looking at anyway (with the exception of Paris Hilton Wink ).

Regardless: surely you will be able to turn up the volume to non-phone PPC's right? I mean, I use every bit of my 1200 min/mo and then some. I run a business on this phone. I hold on this phone. I neeeeeeeed speaker-phone. I pray to the Samsung Gods that they write the needed code to allow this functionality, or that the no speaker phone option listed on this site is inaccurate. Am I the only one thinking this, or am...

Smaller than the Magician, my ass....

I am sure a lot of you have seen the picture of the i730 next to the Magician (if not just do a google search for i730 and Magician), but that was total crap. I was looking forward to this phone because of its size, but now I am having reservations....

Will the wiFi be crippled also?

With Verizon wanting to sell their EV-DO service, do you think the wi-fi will actually work on this phone. Verizon wouldn't actually let one of their customers use a service that they didn't have to pay them for... That's why I'm happy I don't sell their phones. Did you know that when you try to use Mobile Phone Tools 3.0 with the V710, the software doesn't display any of the multimedia features. What a bunch of jerks.

really, no camera?

The original stories on this predicted a 1.3 MP camera. Sad to not see that as one of the features, if that is really the case.

Any word as to a camera version of this coming out?

Just bought XV-6600 (with Camera)...

Just bought the audiovox 6600 w/ camera a few days ago and now I see THIS phone! Looks like I'll be spending more money when it comes out! Hopefully, it'll be a while so I don't feel so bad about getting rid of the 6600 after using it for such a short time. This phone just looks too good to pass up!

Nice Phone

I work for Cingular but I have to admit Verizonhas a nice phone on thier hands with this. Even without the camera its still a great phone and its does show to have the OBEX profile which many verizon users have complained about. As long as the phone makes it to the mkt it will sell regardless of carrier.
