Are people stupid?
So, YES there is a quick way to silent the phone. press and hold the vol. down on the side with the phone open. "sound off activated" wow
And, YES you can store pictures and video on the transflash. (which is fantastic, because you can then put them on your computer WITHOUT vpix. camera on/ options/ settings/ memory...
There are others, but I just wanted to get that off my chest.

Text always defaults to spell. Predictive text must be selected each time. Two key presses to change but cumbersome still.

Are people stupid? So I make one complaint in a review where I basically praise the phone and you fish it out to call me stupid?
When this illogically placed setting was revealed on this forum I acknowledged it. I was sorry at the time that I had permanently branded myself by stating it as a con of the phone. I did go on to rate the phone with a 4.5 so was I really harping on a b1tch? Further, a more accurate complaint would be illogical setting placement. These devices are meant to be intuitive.
Did you know that you can add words to the voice to text dictionary by putting them in an entry for a contact? That's not in the manual.

I have used this site and this forum for the last 5 phone purchases I have made. Many times taking "cons" to heart that later were not the case.
So, again, I apologize for singling you out.
I do have the phone, and I am very pleased with it. I've carried it for about 3 weeks and have minor complaints. At first the size of the phone was a bit much, but I got used to it. The slow menu is annoying and it's taking me a while to get used to the swivel when opening the phone with...
Thanks for taking the time to clear up your intentions. At the time I posted my review I had been using the phone for a week or two. The climate on the site was turning against the phone. There was much misinformation being spread about the phone by people who didn't even have it as well as some rather negative reviews being posted. At the same time there were several like me who had recently purchased the phone and had not stumbled across the instructions in the manual or the setting on the phone to change the text input method.
Knowing that the word of mouth or climate of a site like this one can do much to make or break a phone I felt that a generally positive, comprehensive review (if a little early) was due. More peopl...

I don't think you can shut her up. She's real loud in my jabra bt250
western son, I agree that we were on the same page. It really made me mad that the negative talk on this phone almost kept me from buying it. This is my favorite phone I've ever had, going back to my analog startac in 98. The same thing almost happened on the a670. All phonescoop opinions pointed me to the comparable moto phone which I hated and returned immediately. I've since learned just to walk in the store and buy the best samsung phone that's available at the time and I will be happy.
