Sprint a940 version has 10x zoom

Was just on the sprint website and they list the a940 (which is the same as the a970) as having 10x digital zoom in addition to the 2x optical. Sprint is also including the memory card in the price. I feel like I was robbed by Verizon.

Large videos on transflash

Hey I've been having trouble getting access to videos on my card. Let's say I have two 3gp video files each about 15-20 megs each. I go to My Flix then to Card, the phone kind of locks up (or very intensive processing) and sometime's it will powercycle or sometime after a very long time, it will actually get into the folder with the videos on it. However, I've only been successful once. Anyone kno the secrets to having a few videos on your phone to watch? Or am I just stuck to having only one video file on the card at a time.

I Returned The Phone

Well, I officially couldn't take the phone as of yesterday. I returned it and had my old phone reactivated. Obviously you guys aren't having the same issues I was having. I don't think the phone is nearly as user friendly as my current phone (LG VX 8000) or maybe I'm just used to the current one. Either way, I was sad to let the Samsung go. I think it's much more attractive than the 8000. I don't know if I'll ever purchase another Samsung though. I heard Samsung was a good company, but I couldn't tell through using the 970. Anyway, enjoy your phone! I'm sure it's awesome when all the features work as they were intended.

I'm still going to check the forums for this phone. What can I say, it's hard letting go sometimes (lol).

Ringer ID?

OK, I am trying to set a special ring for a friend. I thought this would be easy. I hit edit contact and then chose the ring I wanted under ringtone, but it still comes up as the default ring. What's going on?

Blurry Photos

Hi.My photos are blurry and dull when I print them out. I took the same photos with a 1.3 megapixel phone and they came out sharper and clearer. To all those who say great pics...are they great even when you print them? Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Hey everyone,

I just bought Verizon's Samsung 970 yesterday. Everytime I conduct a test with camcorder lens toward me, I notice that my lips always move before I hear the sound come out of my mouth. It's like watching an old Chinese movie. Does anyone else have this problem? I've already swapped the phone out so I have another new one. Both 970s have done the same thing. I'm so disappointed, I've waited since June for this phone's release. HELP!!!!

I noticed that the MP3 player does not use a traditional size jack for the headphones. Where can I buy headphones for the SCH A970?

Camera help

Can anything be done about the delay when snapping a photo? I have tried every setting. When I push the button, the camera does not snap the picture for 4 seconds and I never get an accurate picture unless the subject is completely still.

LG 8100 , Samsung 950 instead of 970, also phone as modem issue

I have the Samsung 970 and don't like it. To clumsy, bulky, no correct case for it, expensive. I like the 8100 or 950, any comments on wich one to get? Aso does anyone know the real deal on being able to use a V-Cast phone as a modem, i was told that no V cast phone can be used as a modem to connect laptop. Any way around this?
