Samsung SCH-A870 / Siren
Not much discussion about this phone
Samsung SCH-a870 vs LG VX5300
In the store the sound quality was pretty much the same, but now that I have had the 870 for a couple of days, the calls are some times choppy.
Thanks for any info.
Price going down already?
Does anyone know why it came down so early?
External screen question
Tried buying this at full retail, Verizon rep. says not eligible for rebate

870 - The worst of the VZW phones ever - Wait till lyou hear it !
We tested this weeks ago.. The worst voice quality ever on any VZW phone.. The person on the other end thinks you are on some horrible headset or something.. We tested 2 units and they are bad. Samsung has let the voice quality deterioate from the 930 and forward..
If they dont fix this stuff , they will be out of the cell phone business.
Goto any VZW store and call your friend from the 870 and then call him from the 8300 and have him toggle back and forth between calls, he will hear that the Samsung is almost unusable..
Try this , it's horrid!!!
VCAST music...where is it?
Oh yeah - I forgot about this other huge disaster with this POS! - Keypad Nightmare!
Take a 870 and put it in the VZW leather case..
Now dial normal speed 732-543-6789 for instance.
You will get 7453-5464-847438 and more.
The design is totally hosed.. The keypad is too sensitive and the plastic cover presses against the other keys constantly..
What a total freaking mess..
No joke on this one, you have to try it..
You have to dial like 1 digit at a time and wait a second for the plastic to return to it's position..
God I hate this stuff, Dont you wish they would just give it to users or me to test, it would save them millions..
can't have more than 10 entries in a group??
Group cannot have more than 10 entries
Huh? The manual doesn't say anything about a limit on groups. It does say that you can only send a text message to a max of 10 recipients at a time, but it seems to imply that you select those 10 out of a large group.
Anybody else have this problem?
Compare to LG VX8300?
Theatermax may have a point....
Question before purchase
How's the reception?
Missed call reminder.
My contracts up and if VZW can't give me a phone with reminder beep I'll have to find a carrier that has a phone with it.
Question for Tapir regarding reception
How is the reception on the A870? Are you getting the same bars as before? Any thoughts now that you've used it awhile?
Thanks in advance.
Forget what I said
Picked one up this morning
Looks like a ....
