Question about the Impression:

I'm getting the Samsung Impression in a couple of days and I was wondering if the text messages are like an AIM chat? Thanks.
No, they aren't.

Did you ask this on the ATT forums also? Saw the same question there 😁
No, but there is AIM on your phone that is Free and works like regular AIM.

Question for you Impression users

I am considering the Samsung Impression and I have seen quite a few reviews stating that the phone freezes up during texting. Have any of you encountered this?
I have not encountered this. The important thing is to power cycle the phone on a daily basis (which is supposed to be completed on all phones). Also if you delete the cache, cookies, and history regularly it helps as well. 🙂

Can I listen to the radio on it?

I was just wondering if you can listen to the radio on the Samsung Impression. It doesn't matter if its a widget or it comes on the phone or anything like that, i just would like to know if there is any way i could listen to it on the phone 🙂
There should be a way, but I believe it requires a monthly pay just like AT&T Navigator. I tried to look up Pandora for it but I guess it doesn't work. What I do is put music on my phone via USB/Bluetooth on my 8G SD card and I have it play that inste...

Text Messaging Problem? Please help

Well, every time I send a certain amount of text messages, they stop sending until I restart the phone. I have to do this about 4 times a day! This is getting very annoying and the phone is great except for this one little issue. Would anybody know a solution to this problem? Thanks.
No, I have the same problem ☚ī¸ grrrr
Last I heard Samsung was going to post an update software program to help fix this issue but I have yet to see anything.

Calendar times changed with DST

When my phone automatically updated the time when Daylight Savings went into effect, it also changed all of my calendar entries by 1 hour. Anyone else have that problem?
This is the second Samsung phone I have had with this problem. The A707-sync did it also. I just got off the phone with tech support and they told me to turn off the auto-update for daylight savings to fix the problem. Not a great solution, but not...

Syncing Calender

Hate the calender on here, but is there anyway to sync it with the calender on your computer?
Yes, there is a way to sync your outlook calendar with your impression. Just use theolder version on new pc studio ib5 - it has the calendar and contacts sync functionality..

You can download the app from here :

Text threading???

Is there a way to thread text messages? It seems like such a nice phone would be capable of a simple feature like that. Especially since the Xenon can do it.

Also, how do I get picture texts to show up automatically without having to retrieve them?

speed dial???

does this phone have it? how do i access it on the phone??
go to your widgets list under settings/display and light/ widgets. "check" favorites and speed dial and any others you want on your widget list. hit save and exit. Back to main screen, click on the widget (left side of screen) and find your favorites ...
is it just me, or is spelling not the highest priority when writing reviews? 🙄 sad state of affairs....

Trying to decide between Jack & Impression...Please help!

Hey! As you can tell from my user name...I can never decide what to do! LOL I currently have the RAZR V3xx. I am eligible for an upgrade, even though I have been quite satisfied with the phone I have! I need help and advice when it comes to choosing between the Impression and the Jack. I think I need a PDA for what I want to do online and such, but have gotten different stories on what phone does what. Here is what I want more than anything... I want to be able to view a and any web page on my phone as you would see/access it on a computer. Some have told me that the Impression will only give me the mobile versions, others have told me that it will give me the full. Been told that the Jack will give me full but not near as detailed as say th...

Compare LG Xenon with Samsung Impression, also considering Pantech Matrix

I am about to get a new phone and an AT&T wireless account. I notice that the LG Xenon and the Samsung Impression appear very similar, and in fact, on the AT&T site, compare as identical. The Impression is a little more expensive, but if it is a better phone it would be worth the difference. Does anyone have any feedback on comparing these two phones? I was also looking at the Pantech Matrix, which is not touch screen but has a double slide and is less expensive. Anyone have any info on comparing that to the to touchscreen phones?
Things to consider...
Impression is largest, but for that also has the biggest, clearest, and most functional screen.
Xenon has a decent screen, but will be the next smallest followed by the Matrix.

Impression has the largest, and in my opinion n...
I considered the phones listed as well as the samsung jack, and nokia E71. I got the impression and have had it a week. You should try typing "the sly red fox jumped over the lazy dog" to try the feel of the different key pads. I liked the feeling of ...

Questions The Alarm

Does the alarm still ring when it is on vibrate or does it only vibrate?

also does the alarm still go off when the phone is turned off?

Software to manage contacts?

The phone comes with software to manage video, pictures and music.

However, nothing to manage contacts and such. Anyone have any suggestions...is there freeware or other software someone suggests?
I'm coming from a PDA and had to have that feature on whatever phone I choose to upgrade to. The salemen that helped me was GREAT. He informed me how to sync my contacts and calender on the impression phone.. Go to Samsungs website and download the PC...
