Any news on a firmware update?

👀 I ordered the Glyde late last week and should get it tomorrow. All the reports have me bugging out a bit, but I figure I should try it out for myself and see how the phone is.

Just curious... 😕 Has anyone heard anything new about a firmware update? With how heavily this phone is being promoted I can't imagine that they'd leave the problems as is.

Exchanged my Glyde for LG VS-9400

I liked the Glyde for a few weeks but I got really frustrated with it. The phone had a lot of glitches. The touch screen was unresponsive sometimes and when I would touch the message button at the bottom of the screen it would tap the button at the top. It was very frustrating. I also didn't like the way you have to scroll through pictures and contacts. Everytime I wanted to scroll down I would enter into a picture or a contact and then I would have to go back and start over again. I liked the phone but I think I just got it too soon before they got all the glitches out of it. Anyways, hope this helps. If you have any questions just ask.

**********ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM**********

A lot of people are saying in their reviews that there is no zoom while browsing the web. If I remember correctly after using this phone for a few days, there is zoom. If you press the volume up/down key it does increase and decrease text size.

just saw this phone in verizon store and..........

i wouldnt jump to get this phone just yet.

number one the touch screen was TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

#2 are those two dinky speakers on the head of the phone supposed to be stereo speakers?
because the sound was really LOW at maximum volume (and i was in the store when it was relatively quiet)

I need to be able to hear my phone when it rings (duh)
I mean it was really tooo low

These two quibbles in themselves are serious enough to scare me off or any cell phone buyer with common sense period.

This phone better receive some sort of update that makes the touch more responsive, AND that makes those "stereo speakers" live up to their potential. If you cant even hear your phone ring whats the F'ing point?

a tip...for touchscreen ease of use

I have discovered upon my own experiments, that using the LOWEST or just slightly lowest setting for the touchscreen will eliminate 90% of the problems with using this phone's touchscreen.

A lot of people have complained its not responsive enough...or goes to random places yoru finger didnt touch. I had this same problem, too. I also had my sensitively for touch all the way up. I have since then turned it all the way down and then tested it again-WOW! world of difference that made. It's like night and day for clarity of use. I was on the verge of taking this phone back, until I decided to try the sensitivity level change. All I can say now is that it made a world of difference. I have since then moved the touch sensitiviity up just one m...

Just got the Samsung Glyde!!

I upgraded my LG Chocolate phone for the Samsung Glyde and so far I love it. I am still getting used to the keyboard but I love the touch screen. It has everything that the chocolate has. A little bit about the phone: There's a home button on the front to get you back to the main screen. The dial pad is part of the touch screen and you can also text this way if you prefer. You don't always have to use the qwerty keyboard. The phone locks as soon as you make a call which is really nice. The battery life is ok, i've been playing with it alot the past couple of days so I can't really tell what it'll be like when its mostly standby. The only problem is the back is hard to get off. Which is only a problem if you plan to take your memory card out....

Very tempting...and a question about vib/sound

I wasn't at all aware of the Glyde until this morning, and it looks very enticing. I'm a heavy text-messager and I find little need for the internet on the go. With that said, the Glyde may be a better choice for me than the Blackberry Curve recently announced by Verizon. (I'd hate to spend the additional $30 a month and not use the smartphone features.)

The review wasn't terribly clear in talking about ringers and vibration: I use my phone for my primary alarm clock- will this thing wake me up?

Can't wait to fiddle with it at Verizon..

Upon visiting Verizon...my hands-on with the Glyde

I visited one of my local Verizon stores this past week to get a hands-on of the Glyde. The store did not have a model yet to show, but when I mentioned that I was there to see the phone the manager was nice enough to offer to show me his.

The phone had essentially not been touched or modified, something that told me that perhaps the phone was not actually his but perhaps the display model itself (security wall mounting yet to come.)

My personal impressions: the phone is, well, cute. It's a little beefy. Imagine if an iPhone had gone to college and gained the 'Freshman Fifteen'; the Glyde has a general potbelly compared to Apple's offering. The housing, while dark, will appear midnight blue in bright light. Accents are in a sort of po...

this thing is garbage (for me at least)

So I've been holding out for the Glyde ever since I saw spy shots for it. The day came and I chose the Glyde over the EnV2 and I'm at the point where I will probably make an exchange for the enV2.

Although the u940 is slick looking, a lot of the time the touch is non-responsive or inaccurate - which is the major back breaker because that was the big deal for this device.

I am not a fan of the keyboard either - the key placement doesn't really resemble the placement of an actual computer keyboard (I see myself hitting the shift key when trying to type "A"). Or perhaps I am just used to the VX9800 and VX9900 key placement (I've been using those devices for the past 2 and a half years) - so it's not a big deal. But I do also miss havin...

Can I use America's choice plan with this phone?

I didn't buy the Voyager because I had to change my plan. I have a grand fathered plan and even Verizon says to not let it go away ever.

Instinct with a Keyboard?

I know it's a bit early to speculate, but we're all wondering what's the point of the Instinct if this is one with a keyboard.

Feels like we're always two steps behind Verizon here at Sprint.

over in the "Samsung's Glyde Slides Open at Verizon" discussion:

"Heavily Modified for Verizon" Say goodbye to 3/4 of the features.

That's one of the reasons I left Verizon. I couldn't take the crippled user interface anymore. I had no freedom to use my bluetooth for my own personal use and java programs. GSM phones are the best way to go. Long Live Freedom!
