    Alright well I took it in. And all they're gonna do is send me a replacement. That's it. They aren't even attempting to take it in and fix it.

    The limitations on Blue Tooth isn't Samsung's fault.
    It's Bell's.
    When I bought my Samsung a900 almost 2 weeks ago, the rep told me that Bell restricted Blue Tooth to headsets only so that they can make money off data transfers via WAP.
    My a900 came with an USB cord though, so it's all good
    Plus, with $7/month unlimited EV-DO Internet.
    Roger's doesn't restrict Blue Tooth. I downloaded a full song onto my dad's Motorola v551 with Rogers once.

    Hey everyone (especially desheffer) - Thanks for your effort and dilligence in discovering the intricacies of the U420. I'm now making my own ringtones and transferring them to my phone, and loving it.

    Thanks again,
    Eric C.

    I'm not sure if it's been mentioned in this thread before I'm pretty sure it was mentioned for pic but you can get ring tones and pics for wall papers on to your phone with BitPim, a usb cable, the drivers for the phone, a good audio editor program, and a photo editing program. I must first thank Desheffer for getting me as far as I did and for all his work. Like he said, first download the
    DMA_Driver.exe, which you can find the link to on one of Desheffer's previous posts as I can't post links yet, and install it, you'll need to restart your computer after that. Then install, BitPim. After that is all done hook up your phone. You wont be able to find the exact model, so go to "View" on the menu bar and click on "View File System" you should only have to do it once as Desheffer mentioned, the on the left hand menu, click on that and a folder icon labled "/" should appear, click on that, then click on the "brew" folder then the "shared" folder, then the "mp" folder which should be the folder that contains all of your images that are in the "My Images" folder on your phone. This how ever isn't the folder where you can store pics from you computer to your phone. To get to there you need to click on the "lk" folder then the "mp" folder you can then transfer pics from your computer to that folder by right clicking the farthest right menu and selecting "new file" then simply browse for your file. Like Desheffer said make sure that the filese are either .jpg or .gif and are sized 176px x 182px, you'll have to restart your phone for it to register that is has the new file. As for getting ringtones, what I have done is similar to what he has done I take the song that I want to be my rington and take it into my audio editing program, I use Acid Music, I've never used Audacity but if it's free it's worth it. I then chop the song into a 20 to 30 second portion of the song the convert it to MONO with a 32 Kbps, 22,050 Hz setting as an mp3 file. After that's done, go back to BitPim and go through the same sequence as with the pictures but this time click on the "ms" folder which will show nothing unless you have has a sound sent to you in a text and have saved it. Right click on the the far right menu like you did with the pics, then "new file" then find the song you just edited and select that. You'll have to restart the phone like you did with the pics for the phone to register that it has this new file. It will now be in the "my sounds" folder on you phone and you can just go through the motions on the phone to set it as a ringtone for what ever you want, hope this helps some people. Thanks again to Desheffer for all he did and for the valuable info.

    Re: Samsung u420: Did I just buy a very sexy peice of crap?

    Hello! All the information in this thread has been very helpful, and I was able to get my phone to connect once or twice. However, the majority of the time I simply get this output in bitpim:

    Code:
    8:15:39.251 /dev/rfcomm0: Opening port /dev/rfcomm0, 115200 baud, timeout 3.000000, hardwareflow 0, softwareflow 0

    8:16:21.245 Other CDMA Phone: No response to AT+GMM
    8:16:24.283 Other CDMA Phone: No response to setting QCDMG mode
    It worked the first time I tried last night, and the first time I tried the night before, but not since. I've rebooted my phone and PC a couple times and still can't figure it out.

    I'm using Bluetooth, and I have the Bluetooth PC Connection set, and I've paired my computer with my phone, but for some reason I can't get it to connect every time.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Re: Samsung u420: Did I just buy a very sexy peice of crap?

    Hello again everyone. I'm trying to pull pictures off of my phone but to no avail. I'm able to put the phone into offline mode, but once I access the shared/mp folder and right-click on the photo I want to transfer, I see no option for "Online Album." The only options I have are "Save...," "Hexdump," "Delete," and "Overwrite..." Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong? Thanks guys.
