    O/Siris, since you seem to know what is going on, I was wondering if you got
    a chance to place with the i500. Since it doesn't have an external
    display - personalized ringers are VERY important to me.


    I sent this to Samsung:

    I would really like to have a personalized ringer for each person - I can do
    this on my current LG5350 by converting a wav file to a qcp file. This way I
    don't have to look at the phone to know who is calling. I can't tell if this
    is a feature witht the i500. I'm not asking about assigning different
    ringtones to callers but being able to create my own wav type ringer for
    individual numbers so I can make it say "John Doe is calling, Jane Smith is
    calling" etc

    Thank you



    This is the response I got -

    You may does this. Go into the address entry (edit), hit details and choice
    the special ringer that you desire.

    Thanks



    I'm not sure if they understood the question so I sent back this - Thanks -
    I would like to verify since I don't want to order the SPH -I500 unless it
    can do this. How do I upload/download a qcp or wav file to the phone and
    then assign it to a specific ringer using the i500

    Boy, that was a helpful <ahem> response, wan't it? Sorry 'bout that.
    Sometimes, I think the people running the feedback and inquiry portions of
    the site just respond with canned stuff. We got an I500 into our lab just
    tonight. I got about a 1/2 hour chance to play with one. It does *not*
    appear to be able to access our downloads. Big bummer, because I read way
    back in January they were going to make it work. However, I'll see what I
    can find out.

    I may try to access the "ringtone managers" available on sites like
    TreoCentral and see if they can do that.

    Thanks for the reply. So far, no one has been able to do it but the phone
    just came out so I understand. One one forum some people who like to play
    around with this sort of stuff think once an SDK becomes available, they'll
    be able to do so. I sure hope so.

    So far, A-. Someone managed to download Bejeweled to it. I used it to
    <ahem> test the display response.

    Seriously, I noticed a significant improvement in everything there was to
    do. Blazer brought the pages up in a hurry, it switched between apps so
    fast you could almost hear the screen pop up. And Bejeweled never once
    paused or halted during play. Compared to any other palm phone we have, I
    give it a massive thumbs up.

    But it's not without problems. The phone flips opn, but not 180 degrees
    open. The upper portion rises up and about a 20-30 degree angle. I think
    that's going to be tiresome over the long haul. And the Graffiti writing
    pad is well placed but noticeably smaller. Over all, I think long-term text
    entry is going to be tiresome. Painfully so. But READING text? The screen
    is awesome. However, since I work nights, I don't get a chance to check out
    its daylight viewing.

    Thanks for the info.

    Since I'm used to my old palm vx, I used the display keyboard and the stylus
    to do a search for names. Is the only input on the phone using grafiti or
    can you use a stylus on the display?

    Thanks

    You can definitely use the stylus. I did that for Bejeweled. Hence, I
    can't imagine any reason why you could *not* use the display itself for text
    entry.

    I'm going to guess you can't convert wavs or midis to use as ringtones
    and then import them to your phone. While Handsprings and Kyoceras
    have been able to do this, the last couple Samsungs running Palm OS,
    i300 and i330 haven't been able to. I haven't read anything about
    added support for it. As far as content downloaded from Sprint, no
    Palm phone can use the downloads, at least that's what they tell me.
    I'm just assuming that all this is true for the i500 because I haven't
    heard anything to the contrary. Usually when there's an improvement,
    they let you know about. I hope I'm wrong for everyone that wants one
    or has gotten one, but i don't think I am.

    You're not wrong. There were rumors flying around internally that the I500
    was going to support J2ME downloads just like the "pure" phones. Doesn't
    appear to have panned out.

    I have heard that there are ringtone managers out there that work for I300's
    and I330's. Haven't experienced 'em myself.

    I've been fighting something all week long, guys. Sorry if I'm missing
    posts. I'm missing days, too, and that won't do the ole mortgage any good,
    either. Know what I mean.

    I still intend to check on this.

    OK, I finally got myself back into work, and took a good look at the I500
    and its phonebook. I think I need to explain.

    When *I* think of "T9", I think of the proprietary word-prediction
    technology in our "pure" phones that is supposed to let you use the keypad
    at a fast rate. If that's the T9 that was meant in the inquiry, then I
    could not get that to happen. Now, since the original user was, IIRC,
    trying to determine the ability to use the device one-handed, I think that
    answers the question.

    What I *did* get to happen was that I could Grafitti the characters into the
    "Find" blank, and the phonebook immediately jumped to the first match. More
    characters, better match, the selection imediately moved. So the "T9"-type
    finding is there, from what I can tell. I just couldn't seem to get the
    phonebook to accept keypad input. I'll take a look a bit further later. I
    only had about 10 minutes to "play" with it before another tech needed it
    for another call.

    I always found it far easier to input data on my PC/Mac 's keyboard, and
    then synch for Palm devices.

    True enough. However, if I remember correctly (IIRC), the poster for whom I
    was posting that response was interested in searching for the stuff once
    it's already on the device. Synching is great to put it into the device,
    but then you've got to find it again. And that's what the OP was asking
    about: finding an entryonce it's in the phonebook.
