WM 5.0 is here

The upgrade for WM 5.0 is now available- I downloaded it today, and so far I've liked what I seen. The soft keys are also programable, the wi-fi and phone can work simultaneously, and it still retains the pop up command windows like on WM2003.

Of course the battery life still sucks, but what the hey-

Please Help!

Hello Everyone!
I was hoping to get everyones opinion. I am seriously thinking about getting this PDA or maybe the I830. But I am kind of hesitant because, reading some of the reviews, most say its a great PDA. But I see on eBay that a lot of people are selling theirs. If it is so great why are most getting rid of them. I just hate to purchase one and then find out there are problems or glitches to it when it is too late to do anything about it. Any comments or enlightments to my predicament would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!

Experienced users.. I need advice!


Hi, y'all. I'm looking at buying this beautiful smart phone, but am wondering if it's overly ridiculous for me, since I'm not the power user you guys seem to be. I'll be using primarily for personal use, no work involvement as of yet. My main focus (and why I was looking at the Treo as well) was that I wanted an all-in-one phone. I want something that wont be too heavy or big, something that has a nice color screen, something that plays MP3s at the gym (good sound and speakers/headphones are always good), something I can download my schedule/calendar/phonebook into (so that I can actually use this as a PDA) and a good, all around phone. I'm looking for one piece of equipment that will replace my PDA, phone and MP3 player, but...

Verizon told me that you need a digital plan to use WI-FI

Today I was told by Verizon that I need to have a digital plan in addition to my phone service to use the WI-FI features.

This does not make sense!

Does anyone really know for sure?

Verizon said that when you connect to WI-FI the 911 features notifies Verizon that you are using the WI-FI features and then Verizon charges you for the feature. Again this make no sense!

Any comments would be appreciated!!!

Bluetooth Problem

I'm having a Blue-tooth problem with my Samsung SCH-i730. I first started out with a regular i730 with no add on software. I have a Motorolla HS850 headset and UConnect in my Dodge Dakota that I use with my phone. The Blue-tooth would sometimes turn off without warning right in the middle of a phone call. When that happens the sounds reverts back to the handset. This is very annoying especially if I'm in the middle of an important call. I contacted Verizon Wireless and tried a replacement i730 which did the same thing. I called again and got a 3rd replacement. I finally found the link on for the official Windows Mobile 5 release and downloaded it. This was a huge improvement but the blue-tooth turned off in the middle of a c...

Samsung SCH-i730 shared memory and design flaws

The Samsung SCH-i730 has great features. I had it for one week. But, it has major design flaws: 1. Verizon and Samsung have decided NOT to include a small portable user manual for this complicated phone. That's a huge mistake. Downloading the pdf file is not a good answer.
2. The Verizon tech support for SCH-i730 is clueless. They shipped me to Samsung, which placed me on hold for hours, 4 times. I never got to talk to their real tech support (only the front end people who ask you the same questions like your serial numbers...). Never got the problem fixed.
3. This phone has a very small shared memory. It also does not allow it's shared memory to extend this memory via the SD memory. The result is two or three large files will kill the mem...
