While many businessmen (and women!) can't live without their Blackberries, there is definitely a population of suit-wearing, office-working professionals who prefer something more phone-like. The A900, with its simple, thin, black profile and familiar phone interface may be just the phone for those people - people for whom a simple keypad, clean interface and access to advanced features are important. While it is loaded with features, it is definitely a phone for those more likely to brag about them then use them. The A900's storage is too limited to take full advantage of Sprint's 3G services like their music store.
Hands-on report from the Samsung launch event in New York City for their late-2005 / early-2006 lineup.
The LG V40 ThinQ is a beast of a top-end, large-screen phone. In addition to our in-depth review, we have a video tour in 4K, and some bonus photos.
A quick look at the Bold N1, an attempt to offer a flagship experience for just $250. Where else will you find a phone for that price with a true all-screen design, pop-up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint reader, and wireless charging?
Red announced its "holographic 4-view" phone more than a year ago. After several delays, it is finally ready for prime time.
The Galaxy A6 from Samsung finds a good spot in the middle of Sprint's lineup. This affordable Android phone features a metal chassis, a pair of capable 16-megapixel cameras, and Samsung's Infinity Display.
messaging review is wrong
A900 for Verizon?
MP3/AAC Over Bluetooth Possible
Furthermore, purchased ringtones do not expire after 90 days; rather after that time, they are not available on your online Sprint Content Manager...meaning that if you delete the ringer from your handset after 90 days, you cannot re-download it for free. Within the 90 days you can. The 90 day limit is in effect for users of new handsets (so they are not able to just re-download all of their previously purchased content).

Well, then it sounds to me like the review is pretty much correct. If you spend...
how can use mp3 song as a ringtone
what about macs?
Leave the display timings at 8 secs, 8 secs, turn brightness down to 1, and turn off Bluetooth to start with.
cant send mms to metropcs
I have been trying to send mms to metro...they dont get a msg at all...I can only text msg..them...but they recieve mms from cingular!!!
Any way to add contact information via a computer connection
text messages & pictures now showing up correct
Example, when i get a message from Joe Smo it shows Joe Smo’s name, but when I get one from my wife it shows her cell number and not a name. So half the time I need to hit SEND to dial the number to show who it's from with out going through my phonebook to find it.
Second, when I select a picture for a contact to show up on either screen (outside/inside) either it doesn’t work and shows half black half static, or it shows the wrong picture, or it shows no picture at all. But, then again, sometimes it works. I'd say ...
Sorry about that, apparently you cannot edit any posts on this type of board. . .
Play MP3's WITHOUT Sprint Music Store?
I can't find a way and if there is not, this raises some issues:
-If you don't subscribe to EVDO Vision, are you charged for Vision usage?
-If you are roaming and can't connect to Vision, how do you listen to music?
Is there an application you can use to listen to music?
you can transfer pics and music files mp3 formatted
1. menu, tools, mass storage
2. connect phone to pc
3. click cancel on hardware wizard *note windows should use the default usb mass storage driver.
4. go to my computer, look for a removable media drive like e,f,g etc...
5. once you open the drive up mp3's go into the media folder for playing from the media player, pics go into the dcim folder.
Incorrect information about T9
what format is ringtones?
You can put jpegs on the phone
However, the A900 does have trouble transferring pictures between other phones. I have received a picture from a Nokia N90 and Samsung T809, via Bluetooth.......
Incorrect information on ringtones
This is much better than what Cingular does as the only allow you 24 hours to download the ringtone, and if you don't, you have to repurchase it. How do I know this?? I currently work for Cingular.
When writing a review for a phone, I would be sure to have all the correct information before stating something that you have assumed.
900 battery cover...
does anyone know why they changed this/
How do you put songs on there?
