pat, 14 Sep 2008hi i just got this phone the other day. and I have the same problem with the internet browser.... morei'm quite surprised abouut bad battery life, because mine lasts for 3 days with average use (frequent calls, some wi-fi) and i got a spare ready so i can go almost all week without recharging. You must make at least 100 calls and be online for al least 2 hours to exhaust the battery within one day. I had it on 30% for a whole day and couldn't really kill it:) by only calling - strange.
Mine explorer didn't connect to wi-fi either but now for some reason after i installed the latest spb mobile shell it works (only msn live still wants to go through gprs). Maybe you should try a new firmware because i heard it's not a wm bug but a samsung firmware bug. regards!
hi i just got this phone the other day. and I have the same problem with the internet browser. I'm already connected to our wi-fi at home but still the phone uses gprs when browsing. I was even trying to delete the gprs account but I can't/don't know how. Is there no other way to fix this except for opera?
btw, the phone is cool but I hate the battery life. I actually overlooked that part when i bought it. :( is there a different battery that I could get/buy which would last for even 24 hours (well hopefully longer).
I own i780 and let me tell u some of the probs:
- hangs every now and then, and its lag-ness altho it does not have fancy apps like HTC touch or whatever.
- txt sending and receiving is crazy, can delay my messages by up to two-three days.
- once battery is low, phone auto-turn off.
- Stylus is like Child's toys.
- MAJOR FLAW: SCREEN DOES NOT RESPOND TO TAPS, NOT SENSITIVE AND VERY FRUSTATING ALTHO I HAVE USED IT FOR 2 MONTHS. cant blame me for not getting used to it.
good thing tho.. is:
- COOL mouse, although there is not much use. just for the sole purpose of COOL.
Conclusion: dont buy this cheap crap. After all, i should never trust pda made from samsung. it's just not their stuff.
go make ur girlish phone stylish and see whether ppl buy it. For me, i'll go back to my E90. and will try blackberry bold later.

Faith, 11 Sep 2008May i know what wifi setting should i use if i want to connect to my own secure wifi network a... moreHi! You should set the device in the wi-fi settings according to the settings on your home wireless network. That means the encryption and password should be entered and if everything is correct i780 will connect as easily as on the public networks. No problem at all. Regards
