I am a contractor and I am looking for a durable phone that I can recieve emails from. I have been looking at the blackJack. I was wondering if this phone would be good or if anyone could recommend a phone. We have cingular phone service. At the present time I have the razr phone which has been ok.
i'm going to buy the blackjack, but i don't know which data plan to get...i honestly am probably going to get the 5 MB plan...does anyone know HOW MUCH internet i can use with 5 MB...i know it's probably not much...any help is deeply appreciated. thanks
can anyone tell me how to get the backlight on the keypad to stay on longer then 10 seconds? i have made changes to all the options on the phone but there is no change,the light goes out in 10 seconds.is there maybe a program that would change this setting?
How is it possible that some of us get only 4-8 hours per battery with limited usage, while others get 2 days? Seems like one of three things: - I have two bad batteries - I'm doing something wrong (i.e. using the battery somehow without my knowledge) - 2-day Blackjack battery life is a myth
I've done all of the following: - turn off bluetooth - turn off beam - turn off 3G - brightness to '1' - go to task manager and quit all
Still the battery dies before the sun goes down. Anyone care to elucidate? What am I missing?
I'm interested in a smart phone mostly for the PDA functionality, such as calendar, to-do list, appointments, etc... I've seen the Phone scoop review of the Pearl which showed off the keyboard's flimsyness, which concerns me. I currently don't have text messaging on my phone plan, so thoes features are not a big deal to me.
So which would work best as mostly Phone with PDA features and Multimedia features comming above messaging and e-mail features?
Is the Black Jack's battery really that aweful? I generally charge my phone every night anyway
I'm finally looking to integrate my cellphone with my pocket pc. I've used an ipac for years and I'm very used to a pocket pc. What I use the most is the outlook calendar and while I also want internet and email access, I want to make sure that the smartphone will easily sync with my outlook and that it will be easy to schedule appointments on the phone throughout the day.
I'm currently considering this Samsung as well as the 8125 pocket pc. I'm also used to working with a touchscreen which the blackjack doesn't use. I'm wondering how tough it is to get used to a keyboard.
I also wantthe phone that is the most simple and the most straightforward.
Hi, I wanted to know if anyone knew where to find face plates for BJ online. I have order leather cases, but I want something that will make it different and while protecting it from scratches and nicks. I've searched everywhere online and at the mall. No one has face plates, I guess because the phone is still new. Hopefully, someone knows where I can find them. Thanks
So i just got my blackjack yesterday, and i have selected the samsung pop-up display on the home. The only thing i dont like about it, is that in the appointment section, if the time is in the afternoon or night, it shows in military time, not 12 hour time. Is this a setting, and where can i change it?
Every time someone sends me an MMS message, it gives me the "Someone has sent you an MMS message, go to this web site to view it!" dialogue. Of all the phones I've ever had, you would imagine that the Blackjack could handle displaying a picture message! Does anyone know why this is happening and if so, how to fix it? Oh, and I also can't send MMS messages and all of my settings are correct.
I'm thinking of switching from Verizon to Cingular because of the Blackjack. I visited the Cingular store today and I was looking at family plans. She said that on top of the family plan I would need an extra service for 39.99 a month to use the blackjack... This doesn't sound right. What service plans do you guys have for your blackjacks and how much does it cost you per month?
Hi all. I have have the BlackJack a few weeks now, I love the phone, but there are a couple of things about the phone that annoy me. I was wondering if anybody had an answer.
1st: I have a ringtone that I downloaded that I use for SMS noticications. It is about 20 long. Whenever I get a SMS, it plays the enitre ringtone, even while I am reading the SMS. It there a way to have the ringtone stop at the push of a button?
2nd: While on a call the phone will notify you of an incoming SMS, so in my case, it plays the 20 seconds of the ringtone in my ear. Is there a way to have it notify you after you are off the phone?
