Javascript and Cookies on Motorola A780

From the browser, when trying to log onto both the Hotmail and AOL websites, I get this error message reading that the pages can't be displayed until I enable javascript and cookies. I'm confused about this. Aren't these already enabled on the Motorola A780? If not, how can I enable these features? If anyone can answer these questions, please let me know. Thanks a lot, Dave

Mobile Phone Tools A780 update VERY slow

Is anyone else getting extremely slow updates? It takes about 1.5 hours to update my phone (from Outlook).

I did update MobilePhoneTools via liveupdate. It's the latest version from Moto/SW developer (BVRP?)

no sould at all.

Hi there.

I am not sure what happened here. I have been using my hands free (non-bluetooth) and all of sudden, I don't hear anything from the phone without my hands free connected to the phone. It seems to me that a phone is somehow mistaken to be connected to a hands free system. Is there anyway to fix this problem? Any suggesting would be appreciated.

Please help with email on A780

Little embarrassed to ask since it shows how little I know about these things. But saw the postings on the GPRS settings and connect beautifully. But I can't send or receive e-mail through the e-mail client on the A780. Says host not found when I try to access GMail and AOL. I had put in the settings that I used on other phones, but not connecting here. Does anyone out there have the settings for a phone stupid guy---or is there some other mail client I need to install to do this...Thanks

Media Net

Sorry guys this may be a stupid question but is it necessary to have a media net package to use the browser or can I just pay the standard usage charges. I have been trying to connect with the settings posted here but only receive a network error message. Any help would be much appreciated

Outlook Calendar Sync Problems

I have sever Outlook Sync Calendar problems with this phone, and was wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences. Also, if anyone has found a fix for it.

If I have an event in my phone that reads:

- Dinner 7pm to 9pm

Once I sync my phone with Outlook, I will have in both my phone and Outlook:

- Dinner 7pm to 730pm
- Dinner 730pm to 8pm
- Dinner 8pm to 830pm
- Dinner 830pm to 9pm

I think I understand that this is the sync software's way of making the item in the phone appear like it blocks out the time from 7pm to 9pm, but once the sync operation is performed, there are 4 separate events in my outlook AND phone!

Has anyone come across this problem, and a fix for it?

P.S. Same thing happens if I start with a si...

Motorola A780 - Edge equipped?

Does anyone out there know how to self determine whether or not an A780 is Edge equipped or not. I know the general advertisement purports it to be Edge equipped, but I read conflicting information that there may be two versions, one with and one without. My handset originated from Singapore, with box text and user manual text, all in Asian. How can I determine if mine is Edge equipped? Thanks for any help.

Problem with Setting Time

Just brought the A780. When I was setting the clock, I noticed that GMT as shown in the phone is off by +1 hour. This of course creates an error in ALL city time settings and errors when I sync with Outlook Calender on my PC. Have not seen this problem mentioned in this Forum. Am I doing something incorrectly?
Thanks in advance!
