A780 data capable?

Is the Motorola A780 "data capable" where it can be used as a GPRS modem to connect a laptop to the Internet? Phone scoop says that it is not, but I wanted to verify that.

Ring tones for groups of contacts

I was wondering jc717 states:

6) Ability to assign custom ring-tones to individual contacts or groups of contacts.

I have followed the instructions in the manual, but I can't get the "category setting" to come up. It instructions tap the address book, and the tap the "category setting". My options at this point are: New Contact, New Distribution List, Owner's Information, Find Contacts, Sync, Copy to SIM/Phone, Memory Status, Delet Contacts, and Setup. (it doesn't come up in setup)

Also, I know this is "old stuff", but, I'm still having problems syncing with Outlook.

Cingular WAP and Browser settings?

I see from below someone got it working...but I can't seem to get anywhere. I have wap settings that seem to connect through GPRS but the browser cannot open anything. I thought it might be a DNS issue but I can't open direct ip addresses either. Can someone give me thier browser settings and maybe confirm their WAP settings for me.

3gp download leads to browser problem

I recently found a european site to download 3gp videos(http://oktvideos.lx.ro/download.php?li st.3)onto my a780 (tmobile usa). While in the middle of the download my browser suddenly disconnected , when i tried to connect again, i got a message that says "Continue interrupted download?" and three options "ok","delete", or "cancel". Whenever i press ok or delete, my browser automatically closes, if i press cancel i can begin surfing the web but if try downloading a 3gp video , my browser shuts down again. You can imagine how frustrating this can be, now everytime i try to get on the web I keep getting this message. Ive tried deleting the cookies, caches,reseting the Bytes, power cycling the phone, pretty much everything i can think of wit...

Is there anyone here that actually *owns* this phone?

If so, was it difficult to get all the features working? Did you have to go through all the hoops that this guy went though?

i.xhtml file not found - error message when using browser on A780

I have a Motorola A780 phone, but I've been having trouble getting the browser to work. (I am a Cingular customer.) I have configured everything - at least I think I have. At this point, I am able to log onto the MediaNet homepage, but am not able to go any further. I get an error message reading: The file i.xhtml was not found. I have no idea what this file is or how to get it installed on my phone. If anyone knows about this and is willing to help me out, please let me know. I'd greatly appreciate your help.

I have, though, been able to get the Yahoo home page to work successfully; I've even been able to navigate through the website using such features as Messenger and checking Yahoo email. I haven't, however, been able to get any oth...

Don't purchase Motorola a780 from MyWorldPhone.com

I recently purchased a Motorola a780 from MyWorldPhone.com. Soon after receiving the product, I realized it was missing a key feature I wanted (EDGE support) even though it was described with this feature in the product description. I called them nearly a dozen times to rectify this problem (I even recommended they change the description on their website). The result: A partial refund. Even though it was their fault they misrepresented the product, I lost nearly $100 from this transaction.

I’ve asked to speak directly with the owner or supervising manager only to be hung up on twice. I’ve tried to get contact information for a manager or owner, and they would not give it to me. I’ve been blatantly lied to (twice they said I would get the ...

How can I activate the IM client in the Singapore A780?

I have the Singapore version of the A780, which, unfortunately, does not come with the IM client activated. I guess the Hong Kong version does come with this activated. Anyway, in the status menu of the phone, it simply reads "offline" next to IM, and there does not appear to be a way to make it "online." If anyone knows what I can do, please help. Thanks.
