Samsung A717

The earpiece volume on this phone is horrible. Even at the highest volume, it is impossible to hear on it when in a noisy room.
I can't believe Samsung would put out a product like this and even more disappointed that Cingular decided to sell it.

Not only that, but there was another earpiece volume issue on the phone that I purchased from Cingular.com. The volume of the call went up and down very subtlely, just enough to aggravate the hell out of me.

I ordered it June 5 through the Cingular.com website at a no committment price, it was delivered on June 6, and it was returned today, June 7th.

No speaker phone?

Is it true that the bar version of this phone has no speaker phone setting? Anyone know why that might be?
they have to.cause both support Video Share and the audio only comes out through a speakerphone.

No OBEX or FTP???

Anybody else notice that neither of these phones have BT profiles for transferring files?
No!!! I didn't notice, that is very, very UNLIKE Cingular!!! I am concerned, I hope your wrong.

By the way, would you fill me in on what profile FTP is, I already know what OBEX is.
this is actually being offered in japan as the softbank 706sc. it's a pretty nifty phone actually, the only thing i don't like is that fact that the outside disp is so small. other than that it looks like a good phn.
They do have a full set of Bluetooth profiles, even FTP-client, which is rare.
