Help for turning on bluetooth with broken screen

I have a Samsung E730 which recently had the screen broken and I need to turn on bluetooth. I am unable to navigate through the visual display and I really need to retrieve my contacts stored on the phone. I would appreciate anyone that has the same phone to give instruction through a keypad sequence to turn bluetooth on again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

does anyone know

I cant find a way to get the message notification to work for my phone. I would like to to keep reminding m I have a voice mail until I flip it open. This actually is a big deal if you dont hear your phone and miss a call and voice mail and dont bother to look.

Software Problem

I just bought this phone, and while I love it, I can not get it to communicate with my computer for the life of me. I installed the driver and PIM program, but whenever I load the program, this error always pops up:

"Cannot open the port and this program is switched in offline mode. After, try to switch online."

Does anybody know how to make this program work? Thanks.

Non-compatible Videos + Random thoughts

A couple of questions:

1. I have gained more or less full mastery of PC Studio, and I'm rather adequate at computer usage. I can upload pictures, musics, and other files without fail, however any time I attempt to upload a video (I am sure it is with correct format and there is sufficient memory), PC Studio begins the upload, then tells me that it is an unsupported file type?

Does anyone have any sample videos that are perhaps of proper resolution that I could try? Or is it something else?

Second question:
Is there any way to have any of the calendar alarm notifications vibrate in order to notify me of the schedule/anniversary/etc. without having it on silent mode? Silent mode is the only way I have been able to have the phone ...

USB Cable or phone itself? (slow upload & download)

Is it the phone and data cable that are USB 1.1 or is it just the cable? I just wanna find out if there's any faster way to upload music. Like if the phone was USB 2.0 compatible, etc.

Caller ringtone

Possibly a stupid question, but how do you set this up? I went to music, set as, caller ringtone but when I select it, it says empty.
