Many people complain about the battery life, and initially I did too. But, I found a few websites that talked about changing from G technology to E technolgy via a code. When I first got the phone, the battery did not last the entire day.
When I changed the code, the battery life lasted up to three full days. I don't use the internet much, but I do text a lot. The phone is pretty easy to use - I am still trying to figure a few things out. All in all, I really like it. After an initial set back of having the wrong phone delivered The device works great, and the Customer Service was excellent, they immediately sorted everything out This item is very old. It works fine but cleaning it would have been nice before selling this product.
Dust on the side of the charging area. Looked like something that has been used so badly that it was not worth what it sold for.
Here are the cons to the Blackjack: The phone takes seconds when I press Contact List for the list to load. I confirmed this with another fellow user at Spring VON last week. Can you imagine what it is like to wait 15 seconds while driving or trying to get a name. Engineers have contacts. When people ask me why I do not recommend the phone, I tell them to watch, press contacts, and hold the phone up to them.
They are usually tired of watching by the time the contacts load. Samsung tech support acknowledged this is a problem with the phone. When you type Jim or Bill all kinds of names come up. Even though Blackjack has a full key pad the software thinks you are typing numbers not names so it brings up abc letters associated with dialing "1" if you are typing a, b, or c.
Must have been designed by an engineer. I can not view Youtube views or blip. Even with Adobe Flash lite 2. The Blackjack is slow going from one program to the next. I think the Blackjack has a software hardware integration problem. Sometimes you have to wait seconds until you can access the phone to get to Call History for example.
The phone is busy waiting for another program to finish up. Often the phone will go off line and you can not get on the internet. Others on line have complained about it.
Battery life is like having a flashlight that dies before you get to the end of the trail. I figured out the ActiveSync problem after days of effort. Also loading contacts was wierd. I first had to uncheck contacts, load all the other information, then check contacts and load it. I found this hack ona forum. Samsung tech support have not a clue about the hack issues. The screen is really too small for heavy email use. The key board is too tiny for lots of use. It does not come with a headset and the headset you need has a special jack that is only fits in the Blackjack.
It is small and fits in my shirt pocket - replacing the pens! Cingular provides the service and it is 3G. It's virtually impossible to key in telephone numbers correctly. The numbers are spread arbitrarily around the keyboard. Yesterday I received the BJ, spent half the night plying with it including pretty painful process of downloading and installing a new firmware , only to discoverer at morning two "features" which made me return it without second thought: I recognize bluetooth problems might not be that important for others, but to me lack of such a basic functionality is ridiculous - it's like buying a luxury car to discover it doesn't have a radio installed For me it was a show-stopper It makes sending texts so much easier.
In addition, I prefer to navigate the screen using the keys instead of using a touch screen. The device does not work over satellite Internet. Call quality will depend on the overall speed and quality of the Internet connection.
A slower Internet connection is more likely to result in poor call quality and dropped calls. The MagicJack must be plugged in to a computer to get a dial tone.
If the computer is turned off, the user will not be able use the device to make or receive calls. Magic Jack Phone Service: Share Share on Facebook.
