I wish someone would jst answer the question can u put music on this phone with a data cable everyone asks it but no one know the answer somebody plz answer it
Your A177 will not bluetooth files, its works just for headsets. if you have a problem getting it to work with a head set call samsung. Other then some of these needing a master reset they have been great cheap phones!
I just got this phone about three days ago and I love it. It has some really cool features like pop-up lists. That saves me the trouble of opening up every menu to view its options. Its a very fast phone. I love its look and how light weight it is. I am still learning about all its features, but I am not a big feature person. I have had the new sony ericson walkmen phones offered through AT&T and cingular for the past four years and never used all the features. This is also a great phone because there is no commitment, which is great since my daughter broke my last phone (that was brand new).
hotcoco, 16 Jun 2009This is truly the best phone ever. It is great for texting and emailing with the qwerty keyboa... morereally? is it that great cause my phone broke and I wanted to get this one lol
Brian, 14 Jun 2009does the samsung a177 let you set any song as you call ringtone and your text ringtoneYou can have any ringer as your call ringtone but you can't change the message ringtone.
Chris, 26 Jun 2009The bluetooth only works with handsets. Can't send any files over bluetooth.It appears that bluetooth capabilities are very limited with this device. I also cannot send files from device to device. It will only find handsets and pair. This must be by design. Not sure if the Samsung Magnet phone has the same issue since they are the same phones.

This is truly the best phone ever. It is great for texting and emailing with the qwerty keyboard. Calling volume isn't the best, you can hear okay. Ringers, games, and other features are excellent!

Got the phone a couple of days ago and love it. Sold my iPhone to get out from under the mandatory data plan and, with this phone, adding unlimited data to my account was only 10 bucks a month. Can't beat that with a stick! Good call quality, easy bluetooth pairing, well laid out menu system, good feature set (email, browser (especially with Opera), and support for a lot of add on Java 2 Mobile Edition apps. It was curious to find no built in support for Gmail, and also no "new mail" notification for the built in email support (not background processing for email), but SMS and MMS are ridiculously easy to use while being powerful. Picture quality in good light is excellent for being plain VGA, and they keyboard is good (not quite as good as my Dash was, but very good). Loud ringers, easy ring profile selection, etc. A little miffed with the fact that the clock on the home screen doesn't always update when the keyboard is locked (what's up with that?), and the Fn/Shift key rules are a bit odd, but all in all its a great phone. If I wanted full length videos, memory card slot, etc., etc., I would have kept using my Dash, Wing, or my iPhone (the latter, while "cool" was the biggest waste of money I ever spent on a phone).
