A900 review forum.

I posted my review on this site:

http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/phone_reviews.php?id ... »

I was hoping someone might be able to offer a solution to my down sides listed:

-holds about 6 songs max...
-without sprint PCS internet, you lose functionality of everything. you cant play MP3s, games, or even download upgrades, etc.
-headphone jack is too small for any every-day headphone.
-I have yet to find a way to upload my own ring tones via blue tooth or usb cord (if you know of a way plz contact me!!)
-When i go to place a call, and recieve a call at the exact same momemnt (doesnt happen all that often) The phone freezes up, It wont let you call nor answer the incomming call. they NEED a firmware update for this.

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

Sad
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.

A900 for Verizon?

Any chance Samsung will be releasing a similar phone for Verizon? I would easily buy this over the Verizon Razr. Any insight would be appreciated.

MP3/AAC Over Bluetooth Possible

You can add music to the handsets onboard memory via Bluetooth. AAC+ files are the best files to use as space is limited.

Furthermore, purchased ringtones do not expire after 90 days; rather after that time, they are not available on your online Sprint Content Manager...meaning that if you delete the ringer from your handset after 90 days, you cannot re-download it for free. Within the 90 days you can. The 90 day limit is in effect for users of new handsets (so they are not able to just re-download all of their previously purchased content).

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?)

Hello,

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?

Hello.

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!

Cheers.

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!!

Anyone??

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.

For data provisioning: ##3282#

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?

Eh?
