Soon to be DISCONTINUED
Just wanted to let yall know that I was at a "Brand Fest" for Sprint, and the rep from Samsung didn't even mention the a940. At the end of his 20 minute presentation, I asked him about it, and he stated that the phone is discontinued. Asking why, of course, he stated that they simply didn't sell enough of the phone, which tanked the profitability. He followed up by stating that the a900 and the a920 compensated, hence their continuation to push these phones.
Final point, the a940 is one of the best phones Samsung has ever made, and it is rediculous they ceased manufacturing these phones. Maybe it's a way to slow the deployment of technologies, which obviously is good for big business.

Picture Sending Progress?
The prob is te fact no matter what headset i run on it i am having problems either finding it or not even wanting to connect after it is found??? the other problems is when it is connected it is really Static or it cuts in and out and it really hard to hear that is will 3 differ plantronics headsets a moto s500
along with the 850 and some other moto 804 and 205 or something and then it did the same thing and a cheapy headset remind you all blue tooth so i am coming to the conclusion on it is either the phone or the programming but haven't figured out which it is. my moto 500 works really well on my friend lg 8100 from vzw. any clue as to what this could be?? i am hoping to go to the sprint store to...
Paying extra for EVDO

downloaded clip not found in phone
Sync with Outlook info
When I called Susteen, the girl looked up all three of the above handsets and said they were all slated to have software. She said it is typically 4 - 6 weeks after they're posted internally.
Just an FYI for those of you who like me think it's stupid to have all these great phones and not be able to sync with your contact management software.
Can't use cam on low battery regardless if it's plugged in or not...
HOWEVER, there is one major flaw. When the device was low on battery and I could not use the camera, I hooked it up to the charger. I tried to use the camera while the phone was on the charger and it STILL WOULD NOT let me use the camera because the battery was low. What's up with that? Shouldn't the device still allow you to use the camera and pull from the charger? Major issue!!
Picture ID (best fit)
Isn't this site great? Rich is awesome.
Does anybody know the best size for a PictureID image? I've added some, but I'd like to custommize my images. It's obviously not the full 176x220.
Also, is it me, or is this phone grat - accept that the file structure not so wonderful? It appears that I cannot organize the folder layout on my TransFlash card the way I prefer and still have it find images, etc. Am I correct?
PS - You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I'm unable to do this, anyone know where to get some cool ringtones for my phone that don't expire after 90 days?
Why don't sprint employees know about sprint phones?
While I'm asking questions. The approximate 30 ringers that came w/ the phone are fork on chalkboard bad. The sprint employee told me that I could use MIDI or MP3 files from my computer to use as ringers? Is that true...

For new customers only????
Tech Questions... (long & detailed)
1) what is the resolution of the Video mode? (VGA, 4CIF, CIF, QCIF, Sub-CIF)
2) what is the max length of a video clip?
3) what is the max size of the microSD card?
4) is the voice dialing in the phone INDEED separate from sprint's $5/mo plan? (covered extensively in another topic, but i just want to be sure)
5) how is the reception with the internal antenna? at my cabin my cousin gets 1-2 bars of sprint PCS on a candybar phone with his external antenna extended. digital or analog are acceptable, i just want to make and take calls - nothing fancy like web services or streaming.
6) i talk maybe 30-45 minutes a day on my phone and take pict...
