Everytime my emails update then a timer starts running in the top right of the scre... moreThe timer that you see on the top right hand side when you click on the 3G option is basically if you phone is actively using 3G service or GPRS service by your service provider.
In most cases yes if the numbers are ticking your are getting charged for it but, there's a flip side to it as well. The 3G or GPRS service that you opt for through your service provider is based on two options check your service package for 3G first.
Option1: If your service provider offer 3G service and and for using this service your charged in the same bill as your monthly they yes, you will be charged extra for using the 3G in spite of you not using it in such cases after you have used 3G for what ever application click on the 3G logo and deactivate it, so you save your money.
Option2: A few service providers offer special packages for using 3G or GPRS services like a $50 package with say 1GB download which can be availed for 30days in this case no matter how much you download or not you have to finish your usage or should touch the download capacity within the stipulated time frame. For this service you will not be charged extra. In a country like India this is common for pre-paid connections.

Anonymous, 09 Jul 2010hi .. i want to update my i780.. how to and what to update .. is it possible to get 6.5 winmo ... moreHi! Yes you can get your Samsung i780 updated to the new window mobile 6.5.1 but, the service center guys will not be able to help you as the its against their company policy.
Honestly the wm6.5 isn't that great honestly it slows down the phone by 50% and the UI can get very slugish at times especially when your multi-tasking if you probably want to get your i780 updated to 6.5 you may have to do it by yourself you can go to XDA developers or look up WM6.5 for i780 on google and get a direct link to the website.
While you try updating the phone if the phone bonks off the company warranty may not hold up! So be careful what you wish for!!
