I jsut boght the i770 and setup the phone with Active Sync. I currently have Active Sync setup to download messages as they come in,and switch to manual after 6:00 PM, similar to old Motorola Q phone. My problem is that I can not get a full work day out of the battery. I am very dissapointed.
I spoke to Samsung Tech Support and they said the battery or phone may need replaced. I pushed the tech on the issue and asked about how much time I could get out of the phone if I played music. She said the batery would die within 2 hours. If this is the case, what is the point with the phone?
I am wondering if anyone else any experience with the battery life or if you have any suggestions for how to setup the phone to allow me to stay in... (continues)
I just got the Saga and was wondering how to configure the 2 main soft keys on the Today screen. This is not for the side buttons, but for the soft keys (next to the optical mouse). Does anyone know how to configure these to something instead of Phone and Contacts? My i760 use to have this is a simple configuration.
I spoke to vzw cust service twice now. Any new smart phones released by vzw after 11/14 MUST have the unlimited data package.
If you decide to drop the data package at anytime in the future you will have to get a new device. They will let you keep the old phone but will block its data functions including SMS. (Although SMS is not included in the unltd data package but is regarded as data.)
This new phone has every function I might possibly need. But I dont NEED email and internet 24/7 so the wifi ability would be useful to update the phone when at home. I really object to being required to pay for something I dont need. I know why vzw are doing it, cos if a phone has wifi people wont bother buying the data plan and they'll lose money... (continues)
After seeing the reviews on this phone and its capabilities, i was awaiting its release. However, its still not in-stores.(At least, it not in the 3 or so stores that I've called) Anyone know when this phone is going to be available in verizon stores?
I am very intrigued with the Saga, seeing as I use a Treo 700wx now, it seems like it would be a smooth transition. I have been due for an upgrade for a while now, but I am holding out for a better device that what is currently available.
My conflict though is that there are not many reviews out yet, and I really wonder how the Saga stands up to the competition that is reported as being picked up by VZW soon.
Seeing as we are only allowed one test device before we are stuck, I want to scope this out as much as possible. What I want to ask, is does anyone have any side-by-side knowledge of how the Saga stands up to the Touch Pro (AKA the VX6850 reported as being picked up on 11-24), Omnia (12-15), Diamond (Jan. 2009), or Treo 800w (no ...

If you want a PDA phone it's like buying a car. You buy a 4 cylinder for the gas mileage and the savings it can get you. But if you want the feeling of being slammed into the seat when you race through the gears you get the "big dog V8" By what you are going to use and use it. If you don't need a pda phone don't buy it. There are alot of touch screen phones out there that can do most of the same things. Yes it's nice to be able to sync the out look to the phone and at present the cell companies have us by the balls. I am as guilty as most, always want the next best toy. I love the Dare and really could use the Omnia or the i770 or the Storm but not right know. Just can't pull the trigger on $100.00 extra amonth. This is my opinion and ta... (continues)
over in the "Verizon Wireless Announces the Samsung Saga and Renown" discussion:
Verizon's phone selection is finally starting to get better but not quiet there yet... According to PhoneArena.com, XV6850 aka HTC Raphael is supposed to come out 11/24 and Samsung Omnia (CDMA version) is supposed to come out 12/15... hmm, maybe i should wait and not get the Blackberry Storm...
