I just got a Samsung SCH-i730 the other day and already have had a few strange quirks. First, I had to do a hard reset on the phone after I got it to enable the text messaging software (about 4 hours on the phone with Verizon and Samsung tech's to figure that one out).

I'm pretty young so I wonder if I'm able to hear things some others aren't?
I hate to send this back because I don't know if I'll be able to get another one, since Verizon is ... (continues)
