I strongly disagree with your comments regarding call quality. I've had the piece over 3 weeks and at no time have I experienced poor call quaility. So far this phone has performed exactly as expected. I would venture that you reviewed a phone with a damaged / defective earpiece speaker.

I'm suprised there is no comment on the soft screen. Holding and playing with the i760 it's fantastic but then you touch the screen and it sort of gives. It's like touching the service of the LCD on your computer. It soft plastic that squishes in and makes weird designs. Very disconcerting and it makes you wonder how well it will hold up.

well freaking duh, thats the touchscreen! and um, mine dosent make any kind of "wierd designs." I also have experienced great call quality so far. and the speakerphone and voice commands are amazing.

Having upgraded from the SCH-i700 I have a couple comments on the i760. Cons: -No cradle -No data/charging cable (data cable only) -Stupid rubber flap that has to be moved out of the way to charge phone -Stylus flimsy -Buttons on side easy pressed during a call. Have hit the END button more than once while on a call -Have to install hack to use SDHC cards and 4 GB the limit so far -Why a 2.5mm headset jack when 100% of headphones are 3.5mm-forces you to buy an adapter PROS: -Great sound -Lock feature so screen not active if carrying in pocket -Great battery life Overall I like the phone.

I am having a problem getting the phone sounds to come through my bluetooth headset. I have tried manipulating the settings and switching headsets and I still am unable to get sounds, other than the actual phone conversation play through the headset. When the phone dials, rings, gets a text message, or when using my GPS, those sounds play only through the phone speakers and not through the headset. Any ideas?

I have been using the phone for over six months now. I think the battery life is really poor, even with the so-called "Extended life" batteries. If I am connected continuously to the internet, the battery goes flat in about 3-4 hours. I like the keyboard. Sometimes I have a hard time answering a second call when I'm already on another call. Text messages can only be sent to one person at a time even though I can type multiple phone numbers in the "To" field. No distribution lists for emails??? The screen is too small compared to my iPAQ 4355. I wish the Iphone worked with Verizon. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone. Still not ready for prime time in my opinion. mdvga

There may be something you are doing incorrectly in reference to multi-person messages. From day one I have been able to send messages to up to 10 people at once in either sms or mms modes. Now with the upgrade to mobile 6.1 it's even easier to send multiple person messages, and the coolest part is each individual message is threaded! How cool is that?!?! It took me a minute to get used to the side control start and end call buttons but you can get used to them. It's still difficult figuring out how to use the call holding features but I've found the easiest way is to do so from the soft touch screen. Overall, I think the features availabe with the phone are an amazing value for the price.

I have to say, I am very impressed with the Samsung SCH-i760. With the battery life, call quality, everything! The phone is very easy to use and navigate. I paid full price for the phone, while that was expensive, it was worth it. With this phone I am able to connect to any open WiFi network, establish a VPN connection to my remote equipment and manage many of my customers networks all from the comforts of my phone. I respond to nearly 100 emails a day through this phone and have never had the battery drain on me. Try having your laptop turned on, running on battery for 5 hours! just not going to happen. This device has allowed my customer service to increase, which ultimately increases my bottom line. I would love to see more apps available for the Windows Mobile 6 Pro though. Conclusion: 5 thumbs up! Great product.

The i760 has been the best PDA I have had. I have had it replaced under warranty for camera issues 2 times. I now hear from our Verizon rep that the i760 is on "quarantine"at Verizon and cannot be sold. It's missing from their website also.
