question about the r450 voice recorder

with the voice record feature, are you able to use 'voice recordings' as ringtones?
I am seriously thinking about getting this phone. i used to have a rumor when i was with sprint but had to switch to prepaid. i have upgraded to a touch screen phone that's all fancy, but to be honest that rumor was my all time favorite phone! i am so very happy to find one similar in prepaid land.

thanks in advance

Tell me it isn't so...when pics go missing.

I just spent 2 hours saving my pics from my Messager to a new memory card.Then, apparently reformatted my card whilst being distracted by others in the room. The card still shows memory has been used, but nothing is under my images on my card or under my images on my phone. My owners manual is MIA, and I'm currently downloading it form the Samsung website. Any suggestions on how to get those pics back? Please tell me it isn't so that they can't be retrieved again....

R450 "crashes" when I use an MP3 an a ringtone.

The only thing I can call it is "crashing". The phone turns off, and the button lights remain on (if they were on). Pressing the red button doesn't help either, only way out is to take out the damn battery.

This only happens when I put MP3 songs into the memory card, in the "ringtones" folder and set one of them as the ringtone. It plays MP3 in the "my music" folder just fine.

This is very inconvenient, and quite disappointing. When you pay 200 bucks for a phone like this, you at least expect it to ring when you get a call, instead of just turning off. Correct me if I'm wrong.

If anyone has a solution to this, I'd really appreciate if you let me know. If I have to be using a particular file format for ringtones please say so. If i...

Samsung r450 freezes when using Micro SD card

Crying or Very sad

My daughter's Samsung Messager r450 freezes when she loads her Micro SD card. It was working perfectly for a couple of days with the first Micro SD card (Kingston 4Gb) then it froze. After doing some research, realize that this phone will not recognize anything over 2GB, so we brought a San Disk 2GB micro sd card. Problem is, it is still doing the same thing. When she load the card into the phone, it freezes all activity. BTW, she did format both the cards thru the phone.

Any suggestions?

Any way to get rid of the @metro text on the main screen?

I really don't want people to know that I have Metro service so I'm wondering if there is any way possible to delete or change the "@metro" text that displays on the phone (before you enter the menu)?

There has to be a way. I think that I've seen other R450's without this "giveaway" text.

Text memory can only hold 100 messages?

As most already know, this phone has 60MB of internal memory and not 20MB as stated on the info portion of this site.

However, the user manual states the following:

"Available memory is shared between all messages. You can store up to 100 messages. However, the exact number is dependent upon message length."

To be honest, the reason that I purchased a new phone was to be able to store more texts permanently (unless there's a way to transfer texts to your PC - my old Metro phone couldn't do that).

My friend has over 1,200 texts (inbox/outbox/saved) without a memory card on their AT&T Tilt.

This has to be wrong - 100 SHARED messages TOTAL??? Why would they relegate texts to a number of 100 with 60MB onboard memory and memory car...

Two questions

1) Is there any way to make it so that the phone doesn't vibrate when i get a text message?

2)Has anyone used the instant messaging feature? if so, is the quality good? i have a sidekick aswell but i'd rather use my R450 if this feature works

Problems Downloading Ringtones with Messager???

I got the Messager 4 days ago, and I am having problems downloading ring tones on the phone from the phone's browser. When I had the SLVR, I just went to Myxer or Funformobile.com and downloaded, but with the Messager it says that the files are not compatible.

I didnt have problems when I synched the ringtones from the PC to the phone but its time consuming. I'd rather just download from the phone though. Any suggestions???
