    WTF

    I find it strange how the manual mentions the built in hotspot
    also it explains how to use a metro voicemail app (visual voicemail?) This app does not exist.


    Just noticed that the phone has an option in. Setting > call settings > Voice Privacy.
    everyone should turn that on. It will encrypt your calls so that the call data cant just be captured by someone else on its way to where its going.

    we just need to keep spamming Samsung and Metro.. metro might have complained or Samsung got tired of spams who knows.

    I set up a bot on one of my machines.. lol it releases a complaint email every 20 minutes from a different IP

    Which just means more functions that will be available to us in an eventual custom ROM. :)

    But seriously, how can they be so sloppy with outright errors in their manual? Maybe we should have left them alone a little longer, so they could have had some more time to produce something better.

    Nah, this is way more fun. lol

    ok, now i feel left out that u didnt put a link to the zoom feature, or is there a zoom and i just cant find it? i mean, when u click the focus button, u can see that can camera zooms in and out to get the focus . i installed camera 360 but that doesnt have a zoom either. is there a camera app that has it or a way to get to it?

    sorry for the off topic

    Hmmm just clicked to the site, got the original description page, clicked on I own this and downloads and pooof like last week no downloads and no Id for our model..
    "scratching Chin":rolleyes:

    but this link http://www.samsung.com/us/function/...indulge&gnb_search_btn.x=4&gnb_search_btn.y=9
    which they have hidden apparently still works..
    could this have been their original link until metro had them remove function...

    the page also has this link http://www.samsung.com/us/news/newsRead.do?news_seq=19814


    a media release from feb.

    I am not implying nothing but found it interesting to read the bottom and find that both Metro.. and Samsung USA are based out of the same city in the USA.. and no offence to my cousins in TX Dallas not what you would expect for I.T. hub
    i would have thought NY,Silicon Vally, LA most likely

    They are talking in the manual about viewing a picture you already took, it shows zoom in and out in the top right corner of the screen.



    They dont make the phones there, thats just where they count their money.

    Ok. In the description on the linked page, they talk about 720p recording. If the phone cannot even DISPLAY 720 hi-res video, how can our zoomless camera record 720?

    Your point, mike? My phone can record videos at a higher resolution than it can display them?

    Look it up, 720p = 0.9 Megapixels
    720p - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You dont need super high megapixel for high def video.

    1080p = 2megapixels


    the phone is capable of 2048X1536 in picture mode, They limited video mode to 720X480
