    The Online Album option is found on the phone. It is under the Options menu when viewing any photo in your gallery.

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

    I would just like to say that this forum/thread on the Samsung U420 is amazing. That being said I am also a fairly satisfied user of the U420 from Alltel. I have read almost all the treads on this topic but notice one thing in common, everyone seems to be windows users. As a mac user i can download a mac version of BitPim but i can't get a version of the dongle program to do the bluetooth transfer as shown on the Wiki page. Does anyone know the way around this?? In BitPim under preferences, it shows the ports available on my phone and says that a bluetooth port is available as a serial port but i can't pull up the phones directory tree. Any comments on this problem would be great and one last thing, does anyone know if the usb cable on ebay will work on a mac?? Are the drivers for windows only?

    BTW i know someone with a mint chocolate and they were jealous of our u420's!!! they are sleek and could have been amazing if they included full fledge bluetooth support.

    Thanks again as I await patiently for replies!!

    Starting from the home screen:

    hit the '0' key and enter the lock code (000000)
    then scroll down to Bluetooth (#8)
    hit the '#' key and enter the password (8886573982)

    Hope that helps clarify!
    FYI, you don't need to scroll down to Bluetooth (#8), as it has nothing to do with bluetooth. Just go to settings, hit '0' and enter the other zeros, then press the # key and enter the above password. Doesn't matter what option you're on, just as most of these further menues don't.
    [UPDATE] Upon further testing, this works from anywher on the "System Info" menu OR from "Settings Info">"Bluetooth". Strange.

    On a different note. Once you get to the first hidden menu from settings ("System Info") you used to be able to, on other samsung phones, press '0' to get to the GPS settings. I cannot, however, find the GPS settings anywhere on the u420. Has anybody else found it?
    Thanks.

    I actually have that usb cable, but didn't get it to work on windows (although I didn't try my hardest). I actually had great luck with doing it on my Linux (Ubuntu) box. Come to think of it, i don't think i had to configure a single thing. Just followed the updated instructions at howardforums, i think.
    If you don't have linux, you can download an Ubuntu LiveCD that you can boot from and install bit-pim, without affecting your windows or mac (or other) operating system.
    Good luck.

But as mentioned elsewere here, when I copied to the /brew/shared/lk/mp folder, the pic does not show up after reboot of the phone. As far as modifying contacts, has anyone tried the Datapilot software available at DataPilot Cell Phone Mobile Sync Software & Data Cables[/url] It says it has support for the u420, although it is ONLY for the address book. Also, I don't believe it will work via BT.
    datapilot does indeed pull the contacts correctly (via usb anyways)
    although you cannot export the resaults with the trial version
    you need the full version for that
    maybe someone could update the wiki for us?
