hi all. I got an i780 yesterday and I love it! however I have a problem: I can't sign on to msn over wifi. I don't like connecting over optus internet which atm is the only way I can get on! are there settings I need to change? I can connect to the internet itself over wifi (im writing this on my i780) but I don't know what to do to get msn working! please help!!!?
jin, 21 Dec 2008actually im not yet trying to use wifi or others. i just use my phone for sms but not too much... moreno problem for my battery. let the guys check your phone, where you bought that one.... im occationally using my phone for calling, texting, music player and even wifi. 2days is my span.
jin, 21 Dec 2008actually im not yet trying to use wifi or others. i just use my phone for sms but not too much... moreDamn - i can not believe it. Definitely something wrong either with the unit or battery pack. Try replacing the battery, or maybe the charger is malfunctioning and not charging the battery properly. Getting a spare battery or charger will not set you back for a lot of money but could solve your problems. Or you can try with the replacement since Samsung states 400h stand-by time and 7 hours talk time - neither of those goes with your unit. Regards!

jin, 21 Dec 2008hi tommyboy, i had read your reply to michael about the battery.. how could i know that my dev... moreHi! I'm really clueless why your battery lasts only one day or not even that. I charged mine for 20 hours initially and they were good from the beginning. Now i get about 3 days with quite a bit of calling, tweaking and sms-ing + wi-fi. If u don't use 3g maybe it's better to switch it off (phone settings under band selection). Otherwise only bluetooth, wi-fi and gps could drain it quickly + if the reception is somewhere bad it's also not good for the battery performance. Maybe there's something wrong with the unit or the battery itself. I also use heavy power save settings (screen on minumum, keyboard lights up only after 8pm, 1 minute screen turn-off interval). Maybe you should try those settings and report back how it goes. I'm really suprised because almost everybody reports that it's quite impossible to drain this in one day:)Regards!
hi tommyboy, i had read your reply to michael about the battery.. how could i know that my device is switching 3g to 2g? ..pls walk me through on some possibilities why my battery last only for a day and sometimes just half a day without using it that much..
a just buy it last week, so kindly give me some procedures because im not that literate about i780..
rabbit, 11 Dec 2008i need help. just got this phone last week. i can't seem to figure out how to send an sms to m... morehi all..
same with rabbit problem i dont know how to send sms to multiple recipients..
also got the phone last week..
do you have any idea regarding this?
and the battery last only for a day even though i dont use it that much..
Amateur, 19 Dec 2008Do this phone have push email?I think Windows mobile natively supports full push e-mail and Microsoft Exchange & Outlook support - so now question about it:) Regards!
joanne, 18 Dec 2008thanks for the answer tommy. iam a heavy user. and i have 2 extra battery to stand by if using... moreu share same thinking of battery solution with mine, but we cant find them come out battery more then 1500Mah.
sadly to say the branded manufacturer for WM HP never been trying to improve their batterylife for their product..
only China HP have initiative to come out with "acceptable" batterylife for handphone user.
China hp come with two battery, each battery have 3600Mah, means actually have abt 20 days of standy per battery charge. my friends use it to watch tv(china hp got TV reception) 1-2 hours per day and the hp still can last more then 1 week.
some may claims that 3600mah battery will looks like a brick in size...suprisingly, the size is just abt 2-3MM thicker then Sony ericson standard K series battery size.
Now the things happen is, those so called a bc bisness ppl need carrying with 1-2 battery with charge per day because they are using a slowmotion WM handphone produced by most branded hphone name, they need keep focus their eyes on the battery level b4 talk, in talking, after talk and every few hours so that they can "organise better"
a gud joke to laugh...but cant c at user face!!
gun, 18 Dec 2008Thanks Tommyboy for your advise. I have done the hard reset and it improves the response time ... morehmmm..could be anything, but maybe trouble with the unit is also a possobility. I would have it checked, maybe there's something wrong with it, cause i've seen no delay from this units. Regards!
joanne, 18 Dec 2008thanks for the answer tommy. iam a heavy user. and i have 2 extra battery to stand by if using... moreWell, in that case any unit will let you down eventually, but many sooner than i780. Hmmm..haven't heard for such a powerful battery, i would contact Samsung if they have something like that in their production. Otherwise can't help you:) Regards!
Tommyboy7, 08 Dec 2008well..i never encountered that problem. My unit works right away. I have 8gb microsd so that's... moreThanks Tommyboy for your advise. I have done the hard reset and it improves the response time but still I get some delay even though it is not as bad as before. Any idea, typical programs which can cause conflicts? Thanks again.

Battery is really good - that is one of the best on pda's as reported by many users and almost impossible to drain in a day. If u have trouble with it maybe you have some stuff turned on that drains it heavily (constantly turned on bluetooth, gps, wi-fi and 3g if coverage is bad can drain any unit very fast). My experience is that it's lasting very very long:) and i got 2 of them and a separate charger in retail package:)))
About wm6.1 - Samsung ate their promise there and even if they have promised the update for i780 to be available that hasn't and will not happend. There are cooked rom's available but i wouldn't recommend it. It's strange because the new units are shipped with 6.1 rom so it's hard to understand why an update is not available. Hope it helps! Regards!
