Samsung i730 wifi and windows mobile questions.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey I'm thinkin about getting this phone soon, but I have a question: I have wireless internet can I use the built in wifi on this phone without using airtime??!?? Also I'm gonna get the usb adapter and some people say you can use the usb to get broadband on the phone too... I just hope I can get wifi with no charge. I don't plan on gettin the verizon wireless thing. Just using what's around the house!! And is there anything cool I can do with windows mobile?

I have disconnected service to my Sprint PPC-6700 and just use wifi even though unlimited data for me is free lol. It works just fine and no additional charge. I have yet to get wifi to work thru usb to my laptop however my laptop has wifi built in also you are limited by the usb connection bandwith.

And as far as what you can do with winblows mobile is going to require some searching. However a good place to start would be www.howardforums.com

Another site to check is http://forum.xda-developers.com/index.php for all your app needs. Once again referral Mr Pink57.

But I think I still have a free weather today app.

Wow These sites are awsome! I've got a lot of reading to do. Do you like the i730? Are there any draw backs that I should know of? I thought about gettin the "Q" but yet again I think the i730 seems to be more rich in features. Could you post some pics of your phone?

I work in wireless and tend to use PDA's over any other device. So yeah I guess I have a little background. I prefer Blackberries though.

And I could not find that weather app (you can see it on my today screen).
