Im goin to get this fone but ive got sum Questions?
first, go to http://joequincy.googlepages.com/Samsung.zip to get drivers (I'd recommend putting them on your desktop) then go to bitpim.org and download the latest version.
next, connect your phone either by usb (there's a cable pack, it's the older VCast Media Kit... but it has a driver CD, so you may as well use those drivers) or bluetooth. (instructions here: http://www.howardforums.com/printthread.php?t =1067179 ) and install the drivers.

To put them on your phone, use Bi...
BlueTooth / Vibrate/Digit Dial Questions??
1. have you gotten a bluetooth device or tried any? what one works the best and/or is the best for the money w/ features?
2. Can this phone do vibrate/then ring or vibrate/and ring?
3. The sales person at the Verizon Store couldn't get the digit dial to work, and didn't know what to do to fix it. I saw something in the menu about digit sensitivity or something like that--do you have to do a little training for sound sensitivity???
Thanks for any info!

Going back into the contrast menu, the phone claims it is still set to the level I wanted.
I tried updating the software on my phone, but I still get the same problem. Do I have a faulty phone? I've got 10 more days to exchange it for another!
Just got one - microSD slot?
Actually, I really like the phone. I have no problems at all with the audio quality. I've compared it to various other models and I do not hear a noticable difference. And I'm rather picky; I tried a friend's new Nokia over the weekend and the sound quality was truly awful.
I do fumble the buttons occasionally, however. As I was entering my phone book (too cheap to get it copied at a VZW store), I had to correct myself numerous times when extra digits got accidentally registered. But that's a relatively minor annoyance.
I did have one question, though. Several sites listing speci...
