Question

Why Won't Drivers Install for my PC (Windows 7)?

USB connected phone to PC. Getting error message. saying:

Solve a problem with Samsung USB Modem
Samsung USB Modem has stopped working properly.

This product is no longer supported by the manufacturer.

Samsung site has no drivers to download specific to the phone.

It does have "KIES" and "PC STUDIO" software - does this work?

Why would US Cellular not have updated phone drivers on their site?

Liking this phone, but trying to use its full range of options via my PC and getting stymied right from the start here...

Anyone?

It sends 2 160 character messages. But when you use 160 characters on the first part, it doesnt tell you that you are moving on to another message, so sometimes i end up sending 2 messages, when I could have shortened it to just send one. Hope this helps and that I didnt confuse you too much lol.

It will send 2 - 160 character messages. When you cap out on one message, it will move on to the next page and then send them both when you hit send.

I've had this phone for a month but i still have some problems getting adjusted to the keys. For the most part, I just use my thumbnails. But its a lot faster to use my fingers, but then i end up hitting other keys. But I don't text too much so maybe i just haven't practiced enough lol. Also, sometimes the letters don't show up as soon as I push the buttons. But thats the only complaint I have about this phone.

Alarm question

Can you set it so that the alarm will go off but phone calls and texts will be silent? In other words, does it have an "alarm only" setting? I like to use my cell phone as an alarm but don't like being woken up by texts from people or wrong numbers at 4:30am.

Yeah, but it isnt very loud. The alarm has lots of settings you can change like what days of the week and how long your snoozes are.
I used to like setting my old phone to vibrate when the alarm when off and I just kept it under my pillow so I wouldn't wake anyone else up, when I went on school trips. But, with this phone, it doesnt vibrate very much and it doesnt wake me up:(

After fully charging this phone the first time it went around 1 full week (7 days) before I had to charge it again. That is normally amounts of texting and talking. Obviously if you text or spend more time talking or using data the battery life will vary.

From the phone's user guide: "Message View Mode: Choose a message view. With Chat mode, multiple text messages exchanged with a single addressee appear as a chat session. With Normal mode, view messages individually."

So yes, you can have it set to "Chat" mode to see a whole conversation.
