    Re: Short review of a930

    The Samsung support website that non-availability feature in N.A. I also read that the A930 doesnt support the FTP version of bluetooth, which would allow management of the phonebook through bluetooth software. I dont have any experience with Bluetooth so I could be understanding the Samsung info incorrectly. The third party software ive seen uses Bluetooth DUNS, which the phone is capable of, but Verizon disables on their network.

    my company has a short list of approved phones i can get through their discount program. Thats why I'm trying to find a solution about this A930. it's not a $200 PDA/smartphone type of phone as most of the available phones are. My choices for a cool simple phone are limited.

    I'd still say this is one way to go. What are the other phones that are available to you?

    Just came accross this site looking for info on uploading my MP3 files.
    Saw your note above.
    I bought DataPilot Data Tansfer Suite to keep backups of my phone list and sync with my Outlook. I have about 450 I keep on my phone and about 1000 in my Outlook. It works great.

    Re: Short review of a930

    yeah i tried that thing with emailing yourself the file and it didnt really work. the phone automatically saved it as like a .qxc file. (and the quality was terrible) but so far for anyone else with this problem (getting ur own music on the phone) heres my solution and its working fine.

    bascially download bit pim from here
    Welcome to BitPim

    this program is great, as soon as you connect ur phone it automatically recognizes it and is like hey! i see your phone!!!
    *note* this was AFTER i installed the phone drivers from the CD i got from verizon wireless... i dont know if these drivers are available online but google should help for something like that.

    anyways so you open the program and click on media, and here you can upload a sound, ringtone, or image.

    if you want to upload a ringtone click ringtone and when you upload it will automatically put it in the ringtones folder on the phone.
    to upload to the phone there is a little button at the top that when you put the mouse over it, it says send files to your phone.

    for you peeps who aren't really familiar with sound editing, dont worry about it! this program does it for you. i myself use soundforge first (i like my ringtones to be perfect) but all you have to do is click the little music note at the top with a plus sign next to it and youre good to go.

    click browse and find the mp3 you want and then on the drop down menu click 96 kbps and leave it to stereo... or if you want mono, it doesnt really matter. anyways, a little ms-dos window should come up and have a whole bunch of numbers on there which is this programs way of converting the file. after that the whole area on the lower part of this dialog box will light up and you can here edit which part of the song you want to use... i would recommend not going anymore than 30 seconds for a ringtone which makes sense... who the hell takes 30 seconds to pick up their phone??? haha.
    anyways after you select which portion of the song you want just click ok and you are ready to go.

    to send this song to your ringtones list simply hit "send phone data" on the top left (its the second button over from the top left) and your comp. will send the song to your phone. my phone always reboots when i do this so i am guessing that's normal haha.

    some things i dont like about this program:
    1. when you upload a song it forces you to convert and edit the song in thier program... even after you did it in another program.
    2. you can't upload complete songs to the my music folder and instead only to sounds or ringtones.
    3. when you try to upload an image they make you edit it, which makes sense. but they restrict you to this one damn rectangle which for some reason constrains the proportions and doesnt let you freely select which part of the picture. i usually end up with large backgrounds (at least you can change the color of it)

    i am looking for a program which lets me upload:
    a) music to the my music folder
    b) upload images and pictures without having to edit them first in the same program.

    i hope i was of help to anyone that was lost and i hope to get some help for my problems

    thank you.

    Bitpim will also void the warranty on the phone. Use it at your own risk.

    It's not that hard to tell. I had a guy in the store the other day that had changed the outside screen on his RAZR. When the phone was open, the outside screen just displayed "RAZR" on fire which is not what Verizon originally put there. You can also see it in the ringtones or differences in the UI...

    Re: Short review of a930

    Before I read about the sage advice of DUde222, I went ahead and bought Verizon's Music Essentials package for my SCHa930. The CD installation went through okay but when it came time to install the "music player" which is just another name for Windows Media Player ver10, an error screen popped up saying "A higher version of Windows Media Player is already installed... installation is interrupted" or something along those lines. Now when I hook up the data cable and the program automatically loads, I have trouble syncing my songs to the phone. I keep getting the following error message:

    Windows cannot connect to the network. Check your proxy settings or URL address.

    But I'm trying to sync songs already on my drive C. I don't get it. Other than that, the SCHa930 is a great phone. And thanks, DUde222, I got great customized ringtones using your Blaze Media + WinAmp strategy. Cool beans.

    Peace

    Cool! One step you can try and leave out is the WinAmp part where you check to see if the songs have tags. I forgot to do it once, got used to NOT doing it and I haven't had any problems w/o that step.
