T809 news

I went in a t-mobile store in Houston and was told by the sales Rep that the T809 will be in store November 30th. 😁 Sorry she couldn't give me a price. 😢
probably like 300dollar with activation
I talked to a t-mobile rep here in Denver yesterday ( Nov 10th ) who just talked to his Samsung rep and said it will be available early December, definately before Christmas. But that they will be hard to find, and only available at T-Mobile corporate...

release date?? A900

Does anyone know when (which month and/or date) the samsung A900 (blade) is going to be released by sprint?

wha?! did you say wifi in the t709?! are you sure?
Yep! 😁

T-Mobile is planning a big wi-fi push in Q1. It makes perfect sense: they don't have the spectrum for 3G, so they have to do something. Wi-Fi is it.

There's also the Motorola A910 on the way, and Nokia has a few wi-fi phones in the pipe...

newbie alert: what is wi-fi and what can i do with it on a cell phone?

i know what you're thinking
😲 😲 "what is wi-fi??" 😲 😲

but hey, that is what i asked. what exactly is it and why should i be excited?

i originally am planning to get the t809 once it comes out this month, but now i'm thinking i should hold for the t709.
This is talking about a different phone, but it includes a good description of the concept:

Samsung m8000

I need to ask,

Was there any show/discussion around the
m8000 or if it might come stateside?

No. That's a WiBro thing, which is a Korea thing.

WiBro is very much related to WiMax. Everyone's talking about WiMax, but it's not off the ground here in the US yet the way WiBro seems to be in Korea.

There wouldn't be much point in the M8000 h...

did samsung delay the t809?

the slider phone for t-mo was supposed to be released late this month or early december... now it's a Q1 2006 release??
Don't confuse the T809 with the T709. They're different phones.

Looks like Samsung is rolling out the big guns and putting everybody on notice in the U.S.
Dont know why they are making clamshells though, everybody wants sliders nowadays.
😎 I am one of those that actually still want a clamshell! 😉
Clamshells make up the largest portion of cell phone sales each year. I like them and would never go back or swith to another form factor. Personally, I think slider phones are too fragile (having owned one myself).

I don't see clamshell sales go...
Only Black Folk homie 🙂
Do you know if the A900 will have a trans flash slot?

Why can't they just release the phone for cingular NOW?! Especially right b4 the holiday...waitin till next year, that sucks. They would make more money for this quarter, thats for sure!

Im afraid Cingular has fallen behind the pack in terms of quality feature packed phones. No selection at all just old crappy Motos.
U might have to wait till next year for a slider or flip with style and megapixels. 😉

Enought to Switch

I currently work for Sprint here in SouthWest Florida and haven't taken advantage of the employee plan because I personally am not a fan of the phones we have. If i had to choose right now i'd probably go with the Samsung A880 or A800 or the Apache/6700

These two new Samsung phones for Sprint are just about enough to make me want to switch over to Sprint and cancel my current (and beloved) Alltel service.

Maybe Alltel will release a couple new phones and make me want to stay.

I can't wait for a full spec list on these phones. I also can't wait for us to get them in our store so I can play with them!!

new features?

does anyone knoe if the sph_a900 will support bluetooth DUN? and if voice to text will be supported for text messaging?

i know the later sounds lazy... but coming from a thumboard to T9 would kinda suck...

A900 ringtones

Does anyone know if the Samsung A900 (blade) will let you use Mp3's as ringtones? because i am sick of sprint phones not letting you do this. Thanks!

Nov 9, 2005, 5:25 PM

Rich, don't you mean SGH-i830, instead of SCH-i830?

Since the phone is GSM?
No, it's CDMA and GSM. GSM replaces the Wi-Fi, not the CDMA.
