Does the Rant offer Social Network apps?

My one year upgrade is coming up, and I really like this phone. I have an Samsung M520, and this would be a really nice upgrade from that, because of the texting keyboard. Anyway, Can I use Facebook, or Myspace on the Samsung Rant?

Charging Problems

Seems like the Rant has a weak charging port (touchy, stops charging when the cord is touched). Seems to be loose and wiggle when plugged in. I send it out to Samsung to get fixed only to find out that they will not fix it under warranty because of user damage. Anyone else have this issue?

Java version

I'm looking into alternative web browsers for the Rant. Has anyone heard of Teashark Alpha? The download page said, "To install TeaShark Alpha, your phone must be able to support Java MIDP 2.0. Please consult your phone manufacturer to check if your phone supports Java MIDP 2.0."

I contacted Samsung and after deciphering the Indian accent was told "Samsung doesn't support Java, call your service provider."

I know my phone supports Java, but does anyone know if it supports Java MIDP 2.0?

Calendar data


Is there a way to specify the location for the calendar data? I've run into the problem of not having enough space for more events, even though I have an 8Gb mSD card.

Calendar sync

Is the phone capable of syncing calendar events from outlook straight into the phone?
I heard its possible through google's online calendar but that would require connecting to the internet.

I am looking to ditch my htc touch pro for a an actual PHONE and not a mini laptop. that touch pro is really cool but when it comes to using it as a phone its not the greatest.

I just need a PHONE that allows me to check a couple thigns online and organize my calendar, with the help of outlook.

Hi, I need much help!

Hello, I just got a Sam sung M540 from Telus and I have some questions about how it works. I have the knowledge of a 1 year old when it comes to babies, no scratch that, some even understand it more than I do. Please be simple because I do wish to solve my problems. 🙂 Thanks!

1. Is there's a way to block internet usage from the phone. I don't have it covered on my plan and I do not want to pay extra by accidentally clicking something. I noticed that sometimes I click on some part of the menu and it goes into this world thing moving around - that's the same as going online, isn't it?! Also, how does the logo for online looks like on the top of the screen?!

2. how can I transfer ring tones/Backgrounds from my computer to the ring to...

Rant issues -- not receiving calls

I have had my Rant for several months (actually I have only had my current Rant for a little over a month). My problems have always been that I only receive about 50% of my incoming calls, eventually the call goes to voicemail, I never receive a missed call notification, and then an hour or two later, I receive notification for a new voicemail. Also, I quite often, not always, have a couple hour delay in receiving texts. I have had several conversations with tech support and in store staff. We have reprogrammed the phone, done hard resets, soft resets, and then eventually replaced the phone. Only issue is, the problems did not go away with the new phone.

Funny thing is that my wife and I both got Rants at the same time and she has no...

faq - how to set mp3 as ringer

steps writen using Vista, Rant had upgraded firmware, i was drinking orange juice. your experience may varry...

    How To Set MP3s as Ringers for Samsung Rant:
    1.) find an mp3. download WavePad, install. download Pazera video to 3GP (be sure you have the right one, there are like a dozen different pazera applications), extract to a folder of the same name.

    2.) open WavePad and drag the song into it. you can drag your mouse on the graph to select sections of the song to copy or delete. you want the ringer to begin at a part that is attention getting and not all songs begin that way. also, anything longer than 30 seconds is probably wasted space.

    3.) File > Save As > choose MP3 as extention, NOT WAV. go to that mp3 file's fold...

Samsung Rant & Bluetooth To Car Kit Help

My Sprint Samsung Rant connects to my bluetooth car kit, but the car kit phone book only displays "----" for my phone contacts.

Do anybody know of a way to change the contact file that is transferred to a bluetooth car kit or any method to help with this.

Thank you,

Rant is still great except for the auto screen lock

After having my Rant for the last several month I must say I am still impressed every time I use it or even pick the phone up.
Excellent quality all around.

The problem I have is the auto screen lock that forces you to hit * then Back to get out of it once it auto engages.

Anybody find a work around for this, a way to extend time, or at least a way to change to a single key unlock?

Other than that the Rant still is all that!
