Opera Mini?

Is the M800 compatible with Opera Mini? A customer of mine is having problems with Samsung's browser, and I'm fairly certain Opera Mini would solve those problems. Thank you for your help.
Yes your friend can download opera mini but tell them to try bolt it is a much better browser.

signature on SMS (Text Messaging)

πŸ˜• How do we create a signature in the M800 (Instict) for SMS/Text??? πŸ˜•
You have to go into contacts and then My Info. Put in whatever name you want to use on the name screen. Once you save your info, it will attach that name to your outgoing text messages. Hope this helps. πŸ™‚

Notepad or MS Word App?

Might be a stretch for this phone, but is there an application that can be DLed or Installed from somewhere that would allow for simple text to be read?

I'd like to copy/paste some paragraphs from my computer to be read later on my phone. Does that make sense?

Still only on unlimited plan

Can you get this without an unlimited plan now?
Well, you have to have an Unlimited Data plan. It's because the phone does so much through the Internet like the voice mail, navigation, and live search. The cheapiest plan right now is is 450 minutes with unltd messaging and data for $69.99.

i did this software update and i love what it did to the browser but hate what it has done to my phone. 😁 i have significantly worse battery life 😳 like taking it off the charger and it being dead within 6 to 7 hours of little to no use, literally...

How do I turn off e-mail ring tone? Where do you store stylus?


I just got my new phone yesterday and I am having trouble finding answers to two questions:

I access my hotmail.com account on my phone, but it has a ringtone attached to it and makes an annoying sound every time I get a new e-mail. I tried to find a way to only turn off the ringtone for the e-mail feature, but it turns off everything. There is not a silent choice when scrolling through the various ring tones. Can anyone help me with this?

Also, on other Sprint phones, there is a storage place on the phone for the stylus. Where do you put the stylus when not using? If there isn't one, I am surely going to lose it right away. There's not even a pocket on the leather case. Does anyone know the answer to this?

Thanks for your he...
I did just locate the small pocket for the stylus in the case. So, still need the answer for my other question.
One other thing I am having trouble with is getting gmail on my phone. I have hotmail with no problem. However, I noticed when you log onto gmail, they require you to type in the annoying security code. When I tried adding it to my phone, it kept reje...

set to road only

Is there a way to set this phone to road only, I do not get a good signal at my house and need it to lock to road only... I have noticed that sprint is taking that option off of the new phone and replacing it with automatic or sprint only. Does anyone know why??? I read that with the TOUCH Pro that you can go into the registry and change it to automatic B and wonder if the same trick will work with other phones.
you might be able to get it to do ROAM only. πŸ™‚

creating own ringers and watching Movies

Hiya, I got an 8GB SD card, and I wanna install my own ringers and transfer movies. I can't seem to find it anywhere in the manual. I've got Xingtone maker for making the ringtones, and Intervideo DVD for encoding movies.

I guess my main question is do I put the movie in MP4 format or 3GPP format?

Also where would the custom ringtones go?
ringers are stored on the memory of the phone, not the card. You would have to download the song as a ringtone for it to register that way. there are plenty of free sites that allow you to do this. Xingtone is currently not compatible with this phone....
for custom ringers go to www.myxer.com
for ringers try myxer.com..you can upload your own and download free ones of actual songs
