PHone is terrible.... using ATT network and always choppy and drop calls. No manual.... have to figure your way around. No ability to access the APN or other information on the phone. Really cheaply made...

Do not buy - biggest regret. Wife always complaining so we now have to buy another phone.... only had this one for a week now.... just terrible.

Blu Samba W aka Q17w

What a nifty phone! This was what I was looking for in a travel phone. Nice work BLU.

I'm probably looking right at it, but where is the vertical bar (|) character located? This is in USA English mode. Looked on the keyboard and under "sym" but can not find it!

If it isn't specifically listed, can it be entered by ascii code number? Probably looking right at it.

How can I charge the phone without the actual charger? How to get sound. When a call come through there is no sound and no it is not on vibrate and the volume is up enough.

I have purchased a samba blu and it as not been a month yet since that and I have battery problems and this is my second blu for the year, I have bad luck with blu but I like them as their sexy. I am however looking forward to changing my phone, not a blu that I know for sure.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-02-25 01:35 from FKyy - click to readYou need AT&T´s APN, proxy, port and stuff to do so... Here you have the info:
First of all, you have to create a data account:
Menu-Settings-Connectivity-Data Account-Options-Add:
Account Name: MediaNet
APN: wap.cingular
User Name: Leave it blank
Password: Leave it blank
Auth. Type: Normal
Primary DNS: Leave it all zeros
Secondary DNS: Leave it all zeros

Then, with the data account made, you have to go to:
Menu-Services-Internet Service-Settings-Profiles-Add new:
Profile name: MediaNet
Homepage: any page you like (I recommend Google due to its light weight)
Data Account: Select-GPRS-look for MediaNet (previously created)
Connection type: HTTP (hit Select)-OK:
Use proxy: No
User Name: Leave it blank
Password: Leave it blank

Now, for MMS we will use the same data account:
Menu-Messaging-MMS-MMS Settings-Profiles-Add new:
Profile name: AT&T MMS
MMSC address: http://mmsc.cingular.com
Data Account: Select-GPRS-look for MediaNet (previously created)
Connection type: HTTP (hit Select)-OK:
Use proxy: No
User Name: Leave it blank
Password: Leave it blank

Now it should work! If not, let me tell you that these settings require a proxy address and port (Proxy: wireless.cingular.com, Port: 80), however, these BLU phones only support numeric proxies, and AT&T doesn´t have one...

Well, at least you have all the necessary settings to make data and MMS work on any cellphone that supports letter-entry proxies!

Hope it helps...

how can you change your text tone to something other than whats already on the phone...tried a million different ways and the only option it gives you is incoming calls when you hit a sound and hit use as...really frustrating me!
