closing apps on Samsung Acclaim

Does touching the "home" key actually close an open app? Looking for an easy way to close running apps besides just turning the phone off. Please help.

Help needed to retrieve photos from Samsung i607 to iPhoto on Macbook Pro

I was wondering if anyone could assist me with how to transfer photos from a several-years-old Samsung Blackjack i607 to iPhotos on my MacBook Pro. Using the USB cable that came with the BlackJack has not worked; the MacBook does not recognize the device. I was able to pair the two via Bluetooth, however, and attempted to send one of the .jpg photos to the computer. I selected the photo, waited for the phone to "find" the computer and name it in the next prompt, then followed the instruction to hit "Beam". The Computer name then showed the word "Pend" next to it, then the word "Fail". But I cannot figure out why it is failing.

Anyone have any suggestions? I am definitely not a computer whiz and this has confounded me. Thanks for an...

Samsung R850 Caliber - Rings externally with a headset plugged in...

Is there anyway to disallow external rings except by manually changing your ring? Most phones default to no external tones when you plug in a headset and that's the norm as far as I know but for the life of me, I can not get around this. I had to turn my texts to vibrate only because while listening to music, with headphones in, the phone is extremely loud and disturbing to others. :/

Samsung Seek (SPH-m350) Playlists

I recently bought the new Samsung Seek. So far it seems like it's a great phone, but there is one thing I cannot figure out.

How do you create a playlist on your PC that can be used by the Seek? It seems the only way to create a playlist is to do it on the phone itself. The playlist file the phone creates is a .lst file, containing lots of binary data, so its not exactly human readable. There is another binary file the phone creates that seems to contain a list of the different playlists you have created, but it is also heavily mixed with binary data making it difficult to read/decode/understand.

I have tried using the standard text .m3u playlist format, but the phone does not even recognize them (they will not show up under the li...

loading contacts to Intensity SCH-U450

I recently switched from AT&T to Verizon and now have a Samsung Intensity. Before quitting AT&T, I used a Motorola backup program to download all my phone contacts into a .csv file.

The Intensity comes with a USB cable as part of the charger, which means I can connect the phone to the PC, but I obviously need software of some sort for the PC to be able to talk to the phone.

Is there shareware/freeware software available that will allow me to upload my contacts to the Intensity?

Earphones for Samsung Solstice

I recently got a Solstice and really like it. I want to be able to use earphones for occasional lengthy conversations at home. I bought these: http://cgi.ebay.com/OEM-Stereo-Headset-Earpho nes-ATT-Samsung-Solstice-A887_W0QQitemZ360223 452369QQcmdZViewItemQQptZPDA_Accessories?hash =item53defdacd1
I cannot hear the person talking to me, but they can hear me. Is there anything I can do to make it work properly, or do I need to purchase something else? I plugged it into the charger slot. Thanks for your help.

Samsung Flight A797 Messaging Problem

Has anyone experienced this....
I receive 3-4 texts a week from #32623 ~ have been for years ~ never a problem with my old LG Shine or Razrs. It's just the hockey score, nothing fancy - no pics, videos, web links, dancing reindeer...nothing - just the score of the game.

I got a new Samsung Flight and have had major texting issues. The incoming texts work for a while, but then suddenly stop completely. (Outgoing texts still work fine during this time) Customer Service & Technical support have gone on a wild fishing expedition trying to figure out the problem. I have spent countless hours on the phone with them. In 7 days I have had 3 new Flights, 2 new SIM cards, done many master resets, powered on/off/on/off/o...

Question about the Alias 2

I am up for renewal in a couple days and I have narrowed my choices down to 2. All I need to make my decision is the answer to this question.

How does the calendar feature in the Alias 2 work? Let me explain...

I have the Alias now. When I use the calendar feature, the little calendar icon comes up onto my display screen no matter how far in the future my event is scheduled. Just the fact that there is something in my calendar makes the icon appear. I HATE THAT, therefore I do no use my calendar on this phone.

In my old phone, When I scheduled something in my calendar, the calendar icon would come up onto my display screen ONLY on the day the event is scheduled. That way, I had a visual reminder without having to set the audio...

Samsung Impression

Hi! I bought an Impression last week. I'm usually a WinMobile person, and was hesitant to go with this phone. It's alright; a good, sturdy phone with long battery life - but I'm not finding many apps like I had on my Q. The apps I have downloaded, such as google maps, are not working. The screen shows the map, has it's truncated touch menu up, but will not let me do anything on the screen with the map. Even to close it will not work. I have to close the entire thing.

Has anyone found any apps that work well with this phone? Has anyone else had similar problems?
It would also be wonderful to find an app to enter in calendar items from the PC that would transfer into the calendar on the phone. I don't need anything as fancy as o...
