for battery concerns, mine lasts for 48hours and that is with 4 hours of total talk time within a two day period. not to mention i schedule all my appointments using this phone and i live in the "text capital of the world" so the battery is "good" or 6/10. just do the following:
1.> always place it on sleep mode when not in use
2.> under settings, choose the "power save" option for backlights
3.> turn off the LCD and the power in general after 1 minute.
4.> using the task manager, make sure that there are no other running programs that you do not need
5.> do not use the vibra option
6.> make sure you lock your phone
anti-virus? i would not know about that, but just to be safe i only check emails and surf work related things for my phone.
i have been using this phone for almost 2 months now, and i have no complaints! :)
South Africa, 27 Jun 2008Hey Cape Town, awaiting my handset from vodacom. Why does mxit not work? How is your battery life?Battery lasts for about 2 days if you remember 2 small tricks.Firstly hold ok button down then choose close all,secondly on today screen select settings,select system on the far left,select running programs and then stop all.If you do this when you are not going to use the device your battery will last.Then you can just swap it for the spare that is already charged and you ready to go within seconds.
Can anyone out there tell me why my i780 screen turn blank (as of all white) whenever I try to go to Internet Explorer? The only way for me to go about it is to reset the phone everytime I wanna use the Internet Explorer. I've been using this phone for only less than a month. Pls help me. I really luv this phone.
this might sound abit daft, but does this phone play mp3 and mp4? thankx
Well Bobby you should shout down all the aplications you don't need that they are running at the back ground (RAM) and you will save a lot of energy.
Explore your memory.
But if that will not help contact your deler..
Bobby, 28 Jun 2008I finally laid my hands on this beauty and truly it is a beauty. The only - only hitch is the ... moreAs for BATTERY LIFE:
1 > you have to lower down the brightness display
2.> always put your phone on sleep mode. when my phone is on sleep mode, it still can receive calls.
3.> shorten (pick the shortest) LCD on and internal/external power to the shortest time that your phone stays on.
4.> always lock your phone after use to lower down the use of batt
As for questions about WIFI:
1.> if your wifi area signal does not have at least 1 bar, it will not connect to that wlan and automatically shifts to GPRS. make sure to check the wifi signal first on the wifi settings and MAKE SURE ITS FOR FREE, if it requires a login, open the opera browser or IE and place your login and pw in there.
As for AVAILABILITY
1.> Apparently samsung has logistics and forecasting problems as to the number of units made and shipped.
FOR ALL YOUR CONCERNS, SINCE I AM A SAMSUNG i780 USER, EMAIL ME AT email@example.com
is there an antivirus/security software that i can install on my i780?
I finally laid my hands on this beauty and truly it is a beauty. The only - only hitch is the battery which is very very poor. All told it only lasts me 3/4 of a day which is a far cry from my last phone - nokia e90 which would go on for 3 days. Can anyone help me with increasing the battery longeivity,
