nikolas, 20 Sep 2008Hi my friend, I'm planning to buy i780 next week and I want to know what problems it has that ... moreHi! Had the i780 for 2 months.
1)great battery life (second included)
3)slick & thin unit, not too much of a brick
4)nice alternate samsung today plug-in
5)all the connectivity options possible (incl. wi-fi)
7)stable unit (hardly any freezes)
8)extendable memory (up to 16gb)
9)loads of 3rd party applications available to make it into a useful but also nice looking device (spb mobile shell, facex contact, spb weather.......)
1)windows mobile with it's flaws (hardly a samsung flaw)
2)square screen (320X320) makes some aplications incompatible
3)poor camera (2megapix, no flash)
4)hard to use screen in direct sunlight
not a perfect device but very useful and reliable + also an eye catcher. If u want something less like office go for Omnia or Diamond, but if u want something for hardcore business use i think you won't be dissapointed. Regards!

sarah, 19 Sep 2008hi tommy i bought 8g sdhc card kingston but is not read in my i780 ???? Hi! Maybe a compatibility issue with a certain manufacturer of card. It should work, even 16gb and it's specifficaly said that sdhc are supported. Regards!
Can the i780 route to a GPS position?
Simple question that nobody seems to be able to answer. Salespeople here are not allowed to open box, online manual not saying. Like buying a car but not allowed a test drive...
First prize if it can route to a GPS position embedded in a SMS.
Killer application, Garmin engine is inside but not allowed to do what it is designed to do?

Does anyone know how to change the time from showing in 24hour time? I want it to show in 12hour time. I've figure out how to do it in the today screen, but I dont know how to apply it to the top bar when im in other programs or to my calendar.
david, 28 Aug 2008Sorry, 1 more questions,
3. Most of the user report that the battery life is excellent. But... moreI have my I780 for almost 2 weeks now..I can tell you that the battery is maybe the best thing about this phone!2 hours with the gps on is really much!you must consider that this one is a all-in-one device, but mobile phone based.but still for a gsp navigation device 2 hours is very much..I am very satisfied with my gps ( I installed igo8 on it and it works really nice).
About the rest of the phone...I don't have problems with the screen.I find sensitive enough and the stylus pen is just what you need with a screen this size!
It has, of course, some problems, as it is a Samsung product and it is not perfect.But for its class is more than good.I's smart, quick, as a mobile phone it works without problems.You have everything that you need on it...and speeking of battery life: you have 2 batteries in standard and a charger for the 2nd battery in standard!with what other mobile phone you will receive that!?!?
Great quality for its class,great image, very stily!
If you ask my oppinion: go for it!
Liz McFaye, 16 Sep 2008I found this video at youtube. It shows i780 can be display just like HTC Diamond (jeez..cool!... moreThe theme is obviosly based on spb mobile shell, but how he got ir working on i780 square screen is another question. Maybe with RealVGA but at 96dpi you really need glasses to work with wm underneath. I'm satisfied with spb mobile as it is. Maybe you should try it. Regards!

I am from India, May I browse (GPRS) internet on my Laptop (Win Vista) Home Premium. If Yes… Please guide me how to connect and browse.
Faith, 16 Sep 2008I had tried but still wont work. Damn! I would really like to help you but can't tell what's wrong. It must be some specific setting on your home wi-fi if public networks are working. Regards!
pat, 15 Sep 2008hi tommy. I think I found a way to browse using explorer through wi-fi. I just deleted the GPR... morewell i tried to delete gprs but somehow it didn't work. But at least now i have working IE instead of crappy Opera (which saved me so that i could browse at all.)).
About the battery - i have all functions on power save and i can last 2 days on only 50% battery with only calls and sms so it must be something wrong with your battery pack or mine has cryptonite in it:)
My unit came with Samsung's version of Garmin which i was forced to register on the net, but i mainly use Google Maps just to search the destination. If you have any more questions you can mail me at turbotee at gmail dot com:)
Tommyboy7, 15 Sep 2008i'm quite surprised abouut bad battery life, because mine lasts for 3 days with average use (f... morehi tommy. I think I found a way to browse using explorer through wi-fi. I just deleted the GPRS connection in my WAP settings in Connections. haha
well, I adjusted the settings to turn off LCD after 3 mins and the single battery lasted me almost a day. (yey) I don't know how your batt could last for 3 days. I didn't do much with the phone today except text a few messages, made about 3 calls and fiddled with internet connection.
regarding GPS, Navfone is already installed on my SD card and phone, but I can't use it, I think I still have to register it (the map, which is already installed also). but I can't find the license no. where do I get it? thanks2 for your help. I just want to utilize the features of this phone, I came from a symbian OS (Sony Er) and didn't do much with it, don't want to waste it this time. :)
