    Comments? Opinions? I'm probably picking mine up tomorrow or Tuesday whenever our damn manager picks them up... We were completely out of SIM cards today and most of the popular phones, so I missed out on like 3 sales. :squint:

    Gets nothing but great reviews on Howard Forums. Check out the samsung forum. I recall seeing a thread when it came out about improving signal strength by placing foil inside. It worked because of it having an internal antenna, not one of the gimmick things from tv.

    Yeah, I've been there before. Tons of good info. I'll check out the foil thing once I pick it up (hopefully tomorrow).

    Just got it today from Circuit City / T-Mobile. Basically got it for free due to all of the mail-in rebates, the $175 rebate ending 7/31/4 but the other $225 worth of rebates are good for another few weeks.

    Question for those who have it - the service light on the outside, does it mean anything? I looked it up in the manual but all it mentions is how to turn it on or off.

    The service light flashes if you have service (or a message). Turn it off, or your phone will be on the charger more than your hip.

    Already "wasted" my money about two weeks ago, and I love the phone. Dual band doesn't bother me - I have no plans on leaving the country for a loooong time, if ever. I'm looking forward to upgrading to another samsung (hopefully with bluetooth) phone in the distant future.

    I'm getting this phone after losing my other Samsung on the mountain.

    Hope it's a good phone :x:
