Alright, I like this phone but I am having a lot of issues. First off, this thing is extremely laggy. I can barely type text messages. I applied the cache hack, it helps some, but it's still unacceptable. I usually restart it or kill all the tasks running (why don't they close automatically?!!?). This bugs me A LOT. On Windows XP/Vista, if you press "X" and the program just hid itself, we would have to restart every few hours! Why would this be any different on a phone, WITH LESS memory? They should of put a minimize button and a X... or am I crazy?

The screen never shuts off. It used to, but it just.. stopped. I don't know why, or how it would just stop. If I don't manually press the button on the top, it'll stay on no matter what... the screen doesn't even dim. It just stays active...

When I end a call, if I make another call within 10 seconds it'll pop up a error saying it can't connect (something like that). Is there any way around this?

When I'm using Windows Media Player, I have to leave the screen on. I usually use my wireless headphones with it. If I turn off the screen, it will only finish playing that song.. what is up with that? I know bluetooth eats battery, turning the screen off would fix the issue.

One last question -- How do I format this phone? By the way, I am running the newest Windows (6.1 I believe). I did the upgrade.

Hi MacK. The SCH i760 was my first smartphone and I loved it, but traded it in after thirty days because my company didn't support Windows Mobile for a Blackberry. I read somewhere that Verizon Wireless recalled the phone because of too many returns. When I owned the phone I developed the habit of fully closing all apps. I tried never to keep multiple apps open. This helped. I almost never had problems, although the lag is something us WinMo users have to get used to. I believe in 6.1 that if you close a program via the x in the upper right hand corner of screen that it really closes. If it doesn't then you should get used to closing apps with task manager. I always check the memory to see how much RAM I have because when memory gets low the phone might act up. Also, try to move as many programs that you have from active RAM to your micro-sd card to free up memory. That might help as well.

I really loved the SCH i760, and hope it continues to bring you please you. I love the keyboard. It is just so awesome for typing long emails.

Good luck.

So are you saying all Windows Mobile phones lag? Where as other smart phones don't? I guess I'm going to wait for Andriod or move to a different mobile OS. The lag is absolutely unacceptable.

I don't have experience with the newer Windows Mobile phones. Windows Mobile Standard available on phones such as the Motorola Q9H, and the BlackJack 2 are much more stable, and Dieter Bohn is a big fan of those phones. Windows Mobile as a platform seems to be getting more stable, but the reason it has the undying loyalty of so many people is probably its robustness. Android looks like it has a lot of potential, but it is currently available on only one phone (the T-Mobile G1), and most everyone knows that that's a beta phone. You should give Windows Mobile Standard a chance, or even some of the newer HTC phones. I loved the SCH i760 because it was my first smartphone. As I've written I'm currently using the Blackberry Curve which is very useful and productive, but nowhere as exciting as the Windows Mobile platform; I still visit, read and listen to Windows Mobile podcasts because I believe in its relevancy and power. Good luck with your decision.
