Yellow Serice LED

Hello all!

My Samsung all of a sudden the other day stopped working and now there's a yellow light in the Service LED spot. I looked through the user's guide and couldn't find the meaning of it. Does anyone know what this means?

SAMSUNG A 650 VS LG VX 3200 in terms of reception and sound quality

SAMSUNG A 650 VS LG VX 3200 in terms of reception and sound quality

I am thinking of returning my LG 6100 .
The reception and sound clarity with this phone
is poor. Not to mention the volume bug and signal flucatuation issues .

My old A 310 had really good reception and sound clarity but unfortunately is broken.

I was thinking of exhanging my phone for either
the SAMSUNG A 650 OR THE LG VX 3200 .

I was interested in knowing from people who own these phones their feedback on which is better
in terms of sound clarity and reception.

Worth Buying

I get a discount with my college on verizon products. And i still have my t720 I KNOW I KNOW dont give me too much crap about it. Right now i have a i710 through nextel, along with the t720 through verizon. nextel doesnt get a very good signal out where im spending most of my time. I can get the samsung a650 for free, the lg vx4500 for free, moto v265 free, audiovox cdm8910 free, and the samsung sch a610 for 9.99. Would yall recomend the sch a610. Ive never had a samsung actually ive only had moto's...

about to buy phone please help

Hello. I was interested in this phone because I needed a new pay-as-you-go phone and this one came up as compatible on verizonwireless.com. I liked the cell phone and I just have a few simple questions:
1. This phone can play poly ringtones, right? And is it compatible with Get It Now, which you can browse through ringtones?

2. Does this phone allow you to have different ringtones for different people?

Thank you for any answer you can give! Have a wonderful day. 🙂

Compatible generic charger

My Dad has the A650 and is visiting from out of town. When he got here he realized that he had forgotten his charger.

I picked up a generic one at Walgreens for him, but it does NOT specifically say that its compatible with the A650.

It IS however compatible with the A600, A620, A660, A670 and A680.

Doing a google search it looks like chargers that work with the A670 will work with the A650 but I'd like to make sure before I open it.

Can anyone tell me if this will work with his phone?

HELP! SCH-A650 Screen Brightness Problem.

I have a samsung A650 that got a little wet. Now the screen lost most of its brightness. Power saving is off in the settings, and I know it CAN work because it goes on when plugged into the charger. Any ideas?

I've been searching for FREE downloads everywhere, and have found quite a few very good sites, but here is my problem.

I can open the WAP, enter the link address, find the actual item I want to download, such as a wallpaper or ringtone, but when I click on "download" (on the site) all I get is a blank white page with either the wallpaper, or the ringtone playing in the background. The only option I get is for the Menu, I don't have a "save as" option or a "Download to phone" option, all there is, is a blank page.

Does anyone else get this? How can I download things?

PS. I actually did purchase a ringtone from a site to see if I was even capable of downloading items, and the purchased download worked fine, but the free ones do not.

Samsung sch-a650 ass a data port with Verizon

What are my options (if any) to use this phone as a data port to connect to the internet via a laptop (with Verizon)?

Thanks in advance

Get it now??

Hello. I'm new here and am a new user of the A650. I know this may be a rather lame question but I have no idea how the "get it now" feature works. I was attempting to download ringtones and am curious as to how to do this..do you have to download programs on get it now to get ringtones, wallpaper etc?

If so, which is best?

I've looked on different websites that offer ringtones..has anyone had any luck with finding a site that offers a650 tones? It would be nice to find a site to download from rather than paying airtime while you browse for a ringtone.

Thanks in advance! 🙂

Answering Machine??

"This tri-mode CDMA clamshell phone sports a color display, BREW, EMS, 1xRTT high-speed data, and advanced voice features, including call screening (answering machine), voice dialing, and voice memo."

What does "call screening (answering machine)" mean? Is it a fancy description for Caller ID?

outgoing email recipient bug

When I send a text email from the phone, it correctly sends it to the right address, but in the log it lists it as going to someone else from the phonebook.

I can't see the pattern of how it picks the wrong person.

Anyone else see this ???

Need help with two A650 problems please

I just got an A650 and am struggling with two features. I'm hoping there's a solution, because the two of them together are enough to make me return the phone.

1. I don't want to hear a ringer when someone leave me a voice message. I would like to leave the normal call ringer on, but if I choose not to answer I do not want to hear a ring 30 seconds later when a message has been left. I think I've tried everything. Is there a way to turn this annoying feature off?

2. Caller ID does not work. When I get a call, the display shows the incoming phone number with area code (even if it's local), but fails display the corresponding name of the person in my Contacts list. This occurs even if the Contact phone number includes the area co...

When is the 650 Going to be Replaced, and with what?

Currently, I have a Samsung 530, which I like a lot, and I'm interested in moving up to a trimode phone WITHOUT a camera (my work doesn't allow cameraphones, an increasing trend).

I thought about the 650, but ended up not getting one for the following reasons:

1. No external screen.

Sorry, but this is huge for me. I want to be able to just whip the phone out of my pocket and see who's calling or tell the time without opening the phone.

2. No speakerphone.

Had one on my old Audiovox, and it was about the only thing I loved about that phone. When whatever company has you on hold with the bad elevator muzak playing for umpteen minutes, there's nothing better than NOT having to have the phone glued to your head. Ditto for checki...

Latest firmware & voice kit bug

Just got this phone, two questions:

a) what is the latest firmware release ???

b) Is there a bug with the 20 person voice recognition list ??? If I go and "clear all call logs" when I go back to review the 20 person list in the voice kit, they are gone, and don't work any more. Additionally, if I look at the memory utilization it STILL says "9/20 slots used", or whatever I had filled out.

So far, the only thing I can do is clear the 20 slots out and put them back again. Is this a known bug, is there a fix ???
