best phone to date!!!

i am ahuge fan of samsung phones for the most part since my beloved motorola startack was offed with.
and this phone is a screaing reason why! yes i agree with others here on faults such as speakerphone and blutooth unavailability along with other business features that make this to some actually a weak and useless phone....but as a phone i got even not being a world traveler simply cause i sadly couldnt find a mans phone that works as well as a landline phone than this one. so therfore i shelled out a dung load of money and exaborment amount of monthy service fees for the service to own this gem of quality in a sea of verizon rocks. sadly i own it now more ironically cause i cant afford it anymore.....so i went pay as u go and was forced to get another phone (see reviews i did for nokia6236i, LG 9800, and razor for verizon)
shockingly vrizon actually has the farest pay as u go service tahn the others....funny since they are the greedest of the pack. But i jest, just know this phone goes next to the startack as the best phone in my heart!!!.........stunning screen, beutiful sound, fantastic design,......solid quality!just wish thed release te korean version to america....its predessesor brother....dont know the name but saw it once....and wierdly it was before this one but actually packed with more featuress.....very odd but typical of the industry.

I have been using the phone for 10 months. I travel overseas so the dual band is a must. I have been unable to find software to sync the phone address book with a PC. This makes the phone useless.

There *is* a USB port on the bottom, but they have a rubber plug filling it.

Unfortunately, while you can get s/w to upload or download photos or ringtones, nobody has phonebook s/w yet. You can still use the phone as a wireless modem with minimal s/w, a useful feature.

The phones style is excellent. The price is to high. The700 and the 1000 are better buys for the monies. This phone does basicallly the same things. Unless you choose to use it over seas I really do not see advantage. Reception is equal to the 1000. Operational cost for additional servies is expensive.Finding an additional battery is impossible. There are compatible accessories available. Learning the difference betbeen the sph the sch and the IP a790 is confusing.

Too much money for poor address book features

I like this company supplied phone because it works overseas but when I compare it with my own Sony Ericsson phone with numerous features, I wonder if my company paod too much money for the a790.

What is most frustrating is that there is no IR port and therefore no easy way to download phone book. On my Sony Ericsson, I can easily edit the address book on the PALM and then download it ito my phone. Unless I missed it, I see no place to connect a USB port and download or upload the address book.

I give it an "F" for missing this important feature!
