Questions & Answers for samsung SCH-R720

Question

My Admire screen keeps flickering horizontal lines all over the screen.

I've owned this phone for a little over a day (fresh out of the box) and already its flickering lines all over the place. I've done a factory reset, charged it regularly, and haven't hardly used it yet and its freaking out. Please help... I don't know what to do and if I send it back to Metro PCS I doubt they'll give me a "new" one, and it might not solve the problem.

You should have a 1 month exchange in store warranty, where they will exchange the phone on the spot. The screen on your phone is faulty, as I just bought one myself and the screen is perfect.

Question

how do you set a song as A RINGTONE for individual contact

The instructions (see pg 55 #2 of the Manual) list how to set a song as a Ringtone, but that does not actually set it for an individual contact (if only a single song can be used as a ringtone then by default that isn't actually an INDIVIDUAL contact as it always uses the same tone)

There is an app called Go SMS Pro, download it (it's free) and then go to your sound settings and open the ringtone with the application (it will give you the option once it is installed) and it will let you set music as your ringtone. You can edit specific contact ringtones by editing the contact's ringtone through SMS Pro, again it will give you the option to open it through the app.

Question

Battery Life Samsung Admire

I have the Samsung Admire, & it's battey life is the worst I have ever seen of any phone. I have to keep my phone charging all the time. The battery at best last 1.5 or 2 days top, & I have turned off all apps not in use, so could it be my battery, & or do you make any better longer lasting batteries for this phone. I have had the phone barely 2 months. What can I do to extend my battery life? Here is a prime example, this morning @ 5am my battery meter was 100%, but now at 2:40pm, my phone now says 55%, so why is my discharging so rapidly when not in use? I am at a point now where I am thinking about getting an Iphone instead

if you have metro, dial *228 from that phone and follow the instructions provided when it connects. some helpful thing to have before you dial is the numbers behind the battery, sometimes you will need those.

there are a couple of ways to do that. the easiest one to explain is to email it to yourself then save the picture on your phone. the other way is to connect your phone to the computer via the usb cable provided with the charger, then click on where you have your pics stored on your computer open that folder. then click on the "my computer" icon and open your phone, (its easiest if you name your phone first before plugging it in.) then open where you would like to put the pics on your phone, then drag the pics you want from your computer to your phone. done

to what? the phone or the computer? to upload to the computer, just connect the usb to the phone and computer, wait for the window to come up that asks you what you want to do, choose upload pictures. if you want to upload pics to facebook, push the menu button on the bottom left of your phone when the pic you want is on screen and choose share. the option to send it to facebook, twitter, email, etc. then choose which one you want it will come up with dialog boxes to add comments, titles, info you don't have to fill that stuff out but you have the option, then click upload.

a good place to start is to name your phone before you hook it up. that way you can recognize it easily. then after you connect it, wait a minute then click the "my computer" icon, then your phone should be in that list and what you are actually seeing is the memory card.

The is common if the sd card is damaged by a drop or virus. 1st try a card reader and see if a computer can read the card. If not then there is your problem. 2nd you can also have your computer re-format the card this may also help. 3rd you can try cleaning the SD card port. 4th you can do a software reset on your phone by setting it back to factory settings. The last step will ease everything on your phone. Good Luck.
