jon, 14 Nov 2008thanks Tommyboy7!! .. i hope others will also share what applications they have on their i780..:DSome proggy's i discovered lately and work like a charm on i780
1) thumbcal (replaces akward calendar with cool one with sliding option - very nice indeed)
2) spb keyboard 4 - at last a worthy keyboard (as featured on board with Omnia)
3) 1-Calc - scientific replacement for my calculator which doesn't work out of the box???
4) Inesoft Phone 4 (superb dialer, called id and profile manager - tatally replaces awfull windows calling interface....with big red and green buttons it's really what i've been looking for..after install just press the green button on i780)
All the software is running on top of spb mobile shell - so cheers to that:)
you might also check out the Iconsoft Phone Extension, but with my unit it doesn't seem to work..
That's it for today - have fun kids..Regards!
wich one is better?htc s620-s710 or samsung i780?
i plan to buy one of them..
The i780 does heat up with applications running. Remember, you have a 612MHz processor running. Make sure that all programs are closed, hold in the home key for about 2 seconds and the task manager will open, close all programs. This will free up memory and load on the processor. Also, GPS will drain your battery very quick and cause excessive heat.
I also thought my GPS was malfuntioning as it never got signal. I have since learnt that the GPS can take 15 - 20 minutes to log on. Leave it running and wait.
To use your phone as a Modem, go into the menu, select Internet sharing then set it up as either USB or bluetooth (whatever your PC/Laptop supports). It will default your internet carrier to your current network provider, plugin cable and hit connect on the phone. Open the internet explorer on your PC and off you go.
If you want to download a DIVX/AVI/MPEG1 player, GOOGLE TCPMP Player and download. Mine works like a bomb. Then download the NEXT DIVX TO AVI converter. With this you would be able to convert DVD's to any playable file format (my personal favorite is MPEG1 as its the closest to VGA) and copy it onto your mem card of your phone. I have watched full length movies and the quality and playback is the smoothest I have ever seen on a phone.
ei anybody knows why i can not get even 1 signal out of five GPS signal indicator. it used to work before but it hangs while i was navigating. then after i power reset my phone,GPS didn't come up since then. i even tried to disable/enable GPS and set to factory default. still no changes, GPS is not working now. can anyone help??

Maybe a faulty unit, have u tried hard reset, it could maybe solve your problem. If then you still have problems i would recommend replacing the unit...Regards!
hello... has anyone of you experienced having network detected but there's no outgoing or incoming messages or calls possible? I have been using this phone for almost 6 months now. Only recently, network signal goes on and off... tried to make calls or send txt messages but failed. If i use the sim on a different phone, i don't experience the same problem. If i use a different network sim on i780, it's working. Is this a unit problem? or some settings that i just need to adjust? help!
