Samsung i600 Smart Phone

by robcambra / November 25, 2003 2:50 AM PST

I just got this phone and the expensive service that goes with it from Verizon Wireless. I hope I don't regret it later. Two things lead me to beleive this phone isn't quite so smart.

1. I need to be able to view web sites with frames, i.e., Outlook Web Access.
2. I need to be able to send and receive email on the road and sync with my PC via active sync. Seems I can't do both.

Does anyone have any remedies to these issues? Thanks in advance.

I don't have a response to this, but, with number portability why did you choose this $499 Samsung with Verizon over the identical $249 Motorola with AT&T??

I don't get how Verizon could overlook that comparison. Aside from brand, they are nearly identical phones. How do they warrant a $250 price difference?

I just got the Motorola Smartphone and managed to configure it so it syncs with Active Sync when I'm at the office and over the air when I'm out. I can't tell you extalty how to configer on the Smasung though. Call Verizon's support.

I have had my i600 for almost a year with Sprint. I haven't been able to change settings to view with frames either. I purchased a portable keyboard to help with sending emails. It's really slow (especially compared to cable).

I use my active sync cradle with my pc with no problems. The software was easy to install.

Once I discovered Smart Explorer on the phone, I now can treat it just like my pc, moving data around and copying/converting data/picture/movies to my storage card on my phone.

Finding software is tedious. Sprint doesn't carry software. And you need software to download extra wallpaper screens and ring tones.

But I still like my i600.
