"Great Phone Verry good PDA"4.5 starson
Pros: Q Keyboard and Loud phone
Cons: Hard to find the Keyboard Backlight.
Summary: I saw this phone 6 months ago at CES. Finally gave up and got the Audiovox 6600. The Audiovox is almost useless as a phone. No standard voice dialing. I purchased the Microsoft voice program but it does not work with any Blue tooth headset. The Samsung comes with voice dialing that works with the BT Headset and you can actually hear the ringer, something that the Audiovox has a problem with.
The holder on the Samsung requires you to place the phone in face first requiring you to remove it to see who is calling. I know that they did this to protect the screen and accommodate the extended battery but they should have put a micro screen on the back of the phone to display caller info. I have found a work around. The Microsoft voice command announces the callers name when available and the phone number when it is not. Once you have installed the MS voice dialing you can still operate the standard voice dialing program with the BT headset.
The Q Keyboard backlight comes deactivated and there are no instructions on how to turn it on. After a little exploring I found it under the power management settings.
Go into the Power Setting and select the Misc tab. You will see a dropdown menu with the phone listed, select the Keyboard backlight. Now unselect the “Turn of in the daytime” box and you will be good to go.
