Transfering using USB

Hy again,
So i tried connecting my laptop to my Samsung 900. First off i have a mac, a powerbook. So when i plug in my USB cable it seems as thou i first need to go to the option on my phone where it says connect to PC, correct. Once i go there, my phone pops up on my desktop on my laptop. I open it and there holds the folders, "music, media, bluetooth, etc...." so i try dragging in an mp3 file and i get the following message:
"The item "mymymy.mp3" could not be moved because "0" cannot be modified." Where "0" being my phone. Can someone please help, thanks

A900 displays stays on while charging

Hello! I ported my phone to Sprint and got me a A900. I haven't played with it that much yet. One thing I noticed (just tonight) is that when it is plugged in to the charger, both the inside and outside displays stay lit. Is this a normal behavior of this phone? Or is it just my phone! I talked to tech support and they could not help me. The technician advised me to go to a Sprint store to have my phone checked.

Thanks in advance.

Scheduler - Repeat

Hi all,

When I put a repeat function into my scheduler, the repeated meetings don't show up on the phone. Apparently they're still there (I get an alarm) but they don't appear on the day.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks! Smile

Deleting Text Messages (Issue?)


I was just wondering if there was a simple option to delete ALL text message inbox messages. I know that there is the option to "mark and delete" messages... but i usually have a full 190 messages in the inbox and it is annoying to need to do that. Also, another solution would be to make the warning message go away that says " Your inbox will be full in X messages." I cant find a way to do either... Help?

What is Modem NAI for?


My friend has his A900's Modem NAI disabled or "Off". Is this only for the tethering? Does he need this when using the phone for Internet?

I asked him to test his speed when his laptop is tethered. He got 480kbps download and 44 kbps upload. He used Speakeasy speed test url.

So, I guess, disabling Modem NAI does not really downgrade him to the 1XRTT network! It is still using EVDO!

Desktop Charger for the Samsung A900??

Eh? Eh? Eh?

Curious to know if anyone's heard anything about whether or not Samsung's going to put out a desktop charger for this phone. I realize the design will be a challenge, with the charging port on the SIDE of the phone, but if they came up with one, I would most certainly buy it!!


Eh? Eh? Eh?

Receive incoming calls during EDVO sessions and other tidbits

To receive incoming calls while in an active EV-DO (Power Vision) data session, go to Menu > Settings > Display, and press 0 to access a hidden menu. Enter 040793 as the security code. At the following menu, scroll to Toggle DOTM and select Off DOTM in the following menu. This will then allow for incoming calls while in an EV-DO data session, however, in a 1xRTT (Vision) data session calls will still be redirected to voicemail.

As a BT Modem?

When it is said that it can be used as a modem does that mean Power Vision is utilized? If this is the case will this work w/ the $15 data plan? Currently I use a Dell Axim X51v (Windows Mobile Pocket PC) to connect via BT to my T-Mobile SE t610 to get net access to my handheld through T-Mobile's internet service. Will Sprint's A900 w/ the $15 Power Vision allow me to do the same (w/ the superior speed)? Which Sprint phones will allow me to do this? Thanks

Samsung Blade Offered in COLORS?

With the recent release of the Sanyo Katana in all those colors, I was wondering if anyone heard anything about whether or not Samsung is ever going to respond to the OBVIOUS market out there for different color A900 phones. I would LOVE to purchase the Blade in a different color, like Blue or Pink.

Has anyone heard anything definite about this, either way?

"My name card" incorrect after # port.


I'm hoping someone has a fix for this. Sprint CS did not.

After porting my old number to my new phone everything works fine and reflects the change except "my name card" (Menu>Contacts>My Name Card). I can edit any of the fields except the number which is still the old number (before the port.)

Thanks very much for the help in advance.

Better way to upload ringtones

Well i haven't seen it on here so i thought i'd let you guys know there is a better way to upload the ringtones to your phone, it involves a lil bit of editing of the files on the phone, but it doesn't use the net. Goto this addy, read and learn. It's pretty easy to do it, just did it myself and it works. »
