How do I???

I just got a samsung i730. How do I get WM5 on it? I have the sync cable and a computer.

Do you need the data plan to access the WiFi feature?

Very Happy

Pdaphonehome.com the answers to pretty much all your questions

not sure if posting links to external sites is against the rules here, but for all your technical questions or help needs the place to go is

also there are all the hacks out there and quite a few useful programs and such. all they ask is that you use the forum search function before you post, since the phone has been out for over two years and most questions have already been answered. seriously, it helped me a lot as a new owner, so I thought I would share the wealth

Max SD Card Capacity?

I finally got one of these bad boys.

One of the complaints I read in the reviews and the forums is that the limited on board RAM and ROM can gag the unit frequently. Some recommended putting everything that you possibly can, including data, apps, etc, on the SD card.

I need to know what is the largest capacity SD card that anyone has been able to use, sync, etc. reliably.

Samsung recommends 1G, but says the device is designed for 4G. I've read on older postings that access time can be an issue. The newer SD cards are now running at 50x or 150x. I was wondering if that would solve the access time issue and allow us to push the 4G limit.

Removing Items From Title Bar

Since I installed 2007 daylight saving time update I have have the "no active sync/data session" icon in the title bar. I would rather not have this present because it forces the 1xEv icon into the notification bubble. Is there a way to remove the "non active data session" icon from the title bar so that I can have the notification bubble free for actual notifications?

Thanks for your help in advnace.

WM5 Contact list

Sorry if this has been discussed, but I did do a quick search and didn't find what I was looking for...

I am planning on upgrading to WM5 but I want to be absolutely sure that I don't lose my contact list. I assume that my backups will not be compatible with WM5, so how can I save this list so I can put it back on the phone again after installing WM5? Other than writing everything down by hand...

Is the contact list stored on the phone as a file?

Syncing Lotus Notes to SCH-i730?

Has anyone found software that will do this yet? I'd love to be able to get my Calender from work onto this phone but no one seems to be running Notes...

Microphone sensitivity very low

I get constant complaints about not talking loudly enough. I have searched high and low for i730 solutions and for WM05 solutions, but can't even see that others are having the same problem.

Do others have this problem, and if so, is there a solution? You'd think a $500 PHONE would have a decent microphone!!!!!

Live Streaming Video

Is it possible to get live streaming video in the i730. I tried to access the live shuttle launch from the yahoo site yesterday and it did not work. I have windows media 10, which came pre-installed, but have not yet installed real player for pocket pc. If anyone knows if it is possible to get live streaming video and if so what programs/settings needs to be installed it would be appreciated.

Many Problems...

Hello All,

I have the Samsung SCH-I730 (non-GSM version from VZW). I have had this phone for approximately 4 months. When I insert my SD card into the SDIO slot, my signal strength degrades a lot. Sometimes, I receive no signal at all, even with a fully charged battery. I upgrade the PRL frequently and still experience the problem. I have hard reset my phone one manually, and one time so far my phone hard reset itself on its own! Also, this phone drops calls like crazy. This phone has also turned on the backlight on its own for no reason (no call, voicemail, text, e-mail etc). Is anyone else experiencing issues such as these? I paid $400 for this thing and it is bascially a PDA paperweight. Any feedback/assistance is appreciated. Thanks!!...

Just got an i730 what software do you recommend?

I just ordered an i730 which is my 1st PDA type phone. I got it mostly to access my email. I'll be using it day to day for work (Realor). I know I'm kind of late joining the i730 band wagon and I know there's a lot of info on this forum. There's too much. It's hard to filter through all the info. What kinds of upgrades, software or hardware wise do you think are no brainers? What are the must have's to make the phone more efficient and useful? Any info would be GREAT!!!

SCH-i730 DUN For PDA

Trying to find out info if this phone can be used to 'dial up' Earthlink, Aol, or other service providers to do quick (not speed) scan of email, etc. I know WiFi is enabled, but if I'm not near a hot spot, and dont want to spend the $50 a month on Verizon broadband, can I still use it for Dial up. I think I can do this connect to a computer (laptop), but can it browse, connect by itself ? Rolling Eyes

samsung i730 OR treo 700W?? WIFI ACCESS???

I just found the samsung i730.I had never come across it before. Anyone have any comparison to this versus the treo 700w?

Also, can one access WIFI without taking the $79.99 or higher plan? I just have a $39.99 (450 minutes) plan with verizon and wonder if I'll be able to access wifi anyway without all of the bigger packages available through verizon.

Napster to Go works

I knew it was WMP10, but Napster didn't list it as a compatible device. I had it in the cradle, started up Napster and Napster detected my SD card and then the SafeStorage area. I transferred over a song and it plays fine.

Now I'm going to have to upgrade the 512MB card to a 2GB - I found new ones on ebay for around $150.
