    Finally upgraded my cell phone (after AGES) and got me the Samsung blade phone.

    And boy am I happy :D

    I'll link to an older review of this thing and then chill ;)

    Fwiw, I've never had a cell phone hold its signal like this before. It's pretty amazing. And FAST.

    This phone looks much better than the razr in my opinion.

    Doesnt look better in the razor, the phone just has too much pastic instead of the metalic look like the razor. But it does have great freatures. IF i had sprint this would prob my choice in a phone too.

    It does have a fair bit of metal on it but not in the manner of the Razr's.

    Hey I just picked upthis phone. Were you able to get the usb cord to work so it would Communicate with the comp. or is the cord just to use the phone as a modem? Any Info would be great.

    Please tell me its not called the Blade.
    Phone companies need to stop coming up with stupid names. And Motorola needs to keep the friggin vowels!

    Nice phone though.
    Just think the name is repetitive.

    I have had this phone for a few months. I love the phone but I have had a worse time with the bluetooth compared to my old motorola phone.

    Also word to the wise, turn of the location option. It drains battery a lot faster with it on than with it off.
    Settings then 8 (others) then 4 (Location) and turn it off

    Also check to make sure the phone us up to date cause new software came out a few days ago. It's under settings then 8 (others) then 8 (update Phone software)

    Worked Thanks. I also figured out that I had to go into the tools section on the phone. Now All I need is to figure out how to back up the Phone book.

    :D

    Yah, I don't remember all the steps I underwent to get it up, but its easy once you get the connection established.

    Sry, I should have been more help, but the files definitely make it easy :)
