I am using this phone from sep.-09. Phone was working good. Only problem with this was it switch off many time without doing any thing.
Now from last two weeks, touchscreen is not working properly. I can receive the call and can make the call to the numbers which is present in the call data. Bottom options (Phonebook, keypad, menu) are not working. I format phone and card both, but the problem remains. One more thing i would like to say, the touchscreen is not fully ded. Only half lower portion is not working, upper half is ok.
Can any one help me on this issue?

indeed, no prob with the phone!
Phone = GREAT!!sure! no probs!
BTW, am soon going to sell my StarWifi and will upgrade to Samsung WAVE!!!!!!!
for the WIFI Problem:
first: open the wifi, do a search. once you've found your connection, just click on either "add" or "connect".
second: if there's a password to the connection, just type it in on the "network key" option; if there's none, just click on "save" then press the "back button". having done so, the phone will connect to the wifi connection...or just connect manually.
it's either you get a prompt that you're already connected or disconnected or the other prompts(such as "no response from AP", or "DNS failed");
third: if you get the prompts indicated above, all you have to do is restart your phone, and just reconnect to the connection. you should then get a response that your unit is already connected;
finally: go to menu, then browser-settings, then browser profiles and choose the connection you are connected with and then you're done! surf all you can!!
if you already had added lots of profiles (or WiFi spots), then there's no need to change the connections. Just connect and browse, the phone itself will adjust to the connection available.
this is a bit tricky but if you follow these simple steps, you'll get along well!
if the problem for disconnection persists, or no response from AP, this would only mean that your spot or signal from the wifi itself is very poor, or there's just too many people using the connection at that moment...so try again later.

Just baught my star wifi two days ago and still trying to figure out how to sync with iSync on my mac, plug-ins don’t exist nor from Apple or Samsung or third party software does not work on this phone. So I transferred all contacts and appointments to windows 7 on the bootcamp partition on my mac and tried to install the Samsung PC Studio software, that was a no go due to 32bit. So I download the latest version of PC Studio for Win7 and that software does not work either due to a bug, so I downloaded a fix but still no go. Why does Samsung sell new version phones which are not compatible with modern versions of software, be it Mac Win or Linux???
