Subject: verizon U740 deleted message retrieval
I am about to get into a pretty heavy seperation due to infidelity issues, and am trying to retrieve sent text messages from HER phone. The contract is solely in my name, and I need to get copies of the text/pic messages sent and received for further proof. I have researched this extensively and was lucky to find a site containg information regarding a text/pic/data retrieval stick that you can plug your sim card into to retrieve ALL data, even deleted. Unfortunately, Verizon doesn't use sim cards. Is there anyway I can clone the U740 into using it's external or internal memory card like a sim card?; Is there anyway to retrieve deleted text/pic messages without obtaining a subpoena from the courts? Thank You

Okay, i accidentally put my phone in the washer. I dryed it real good and even took it apart to let dry. However though, when I put my battery back in my phone it comes up a a black screen and at the top it reads '--download started-- Emergency @ USB_ISR' Then at the bottom of the screen it reads 'Bootblock Version: u740:AF25.1' I don't know what to do. If someone could help I would greatly appreciate it, I don't gave insurance on it right now, so I'm in a tough situation. Or am I just screwed? Thanks

Thanks Kyle Posted By: Kyle @ 2008-08-27 03:04:10 Subject: The basuc way to upload thing to this phone using a USB cord I just spent all day messing around with my new shiny fone and pretty much came up with what everyone else was running into.. since this site is a Canadian one we can assume everyone is using the bell version of this phone.. or at least I will. So the way to send things to this phone without using bitpim to to follow these steps: YOU CAN BRICK YOUR PHONE IF YOU DELETE SOMETHING THAT YOU WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO IN THESE STEPS! BE CAREFUL! I dont take responsibility for you messing up your phone. 1. Get QPST ________________________________________________________________________________________ 2. Install the drivers for this phone directly from samsung, or the ones everyone else is using.. it shouldn't matter but I would assume the ones from samsung are better ________________________________________________________________________________________ 3. Connect the phone and go into EFS Explorer. I am assuming you know the SPC for your phone, if not get CDMA-workshop and get it there.. lots of tutorials out there have this step so im avoiding it. ________________________________________________________________________________________ 4. Go to /brew/shared/jas/temp/install/ ________________________________________________________________________________________ 5. post the jar/jad (or ringtone) files you want to install in there (right click and new->file or just rag and drop). if you make a mistake it seems the phone will take the file but wont put it anywhere useful so make sure you go over all the details in the file to make sure they are right. most of what I downloaded had the jar and jad together and it made it easy. to use mp3's as ringtones make a textfile with the following: Content-Type: audio/mp3 Content-URL: (PUT THE FILENAME HERE!).mp3 Content-ID: 3ginferno/audio/mp3 Content-Vendor: Content-Name: (Name of the tone) Content-Version: 1.0 Content-Size: 480512 ** Content-Size is gotten from right clicking in windows on the file and going to properties and taking the SIZE not SIZE ON DISK!!! ________________________________________________________________________________________ 6. Reboot the phone, it will start up and then restart.. if you did it right you will have the ringtones or apps in thier respective folders. Hopefully this works for everyone, it took me a little while to figure it out but it does work.. any questions post them and I will try and help out or make a video of this for everyone. If you fuck up your phone, its your own fault, not any of ours.

this phone is great. teashark works 95% of the time. but better than the browser included right? since i found the test codes on this page i have found a way to save battery time on my u740 better than the power saver mode can. i have the midpssh with the patch, yet still no results. either my phone, network, or computer im sshing into. tons of games and apps from the uploaders and its all thanks to u740.ca also the only true place for phone games i found is mobiles24.com they also have ringtones and screensavers that are perfect for the sch u740. i upload them through the pcs-cruz-network phone uploader. dont pay for windows messenger when there is mig33. but thats up to you. im not a spokesperson. once again thank you to the u740.ca team. support equals superiority. ;}

Subject: Folder Tip Thanks & Contacts Backup Question
Many thanks! Super tip about putting Opera Mini in the IM & Email Downloads folder for easy access in landscape mode. I'm with Bell Canada and they want $3.00 a month to backup & store my contacts list in case of problems. Grrr Anyone been able to get at a u740 list with the USB cable for backup or restore functions?

Subject: IM & Email folder
Kyle - great post about switching applications to the IM & Email folder! The IM & Email folder is a folder for applications on the U740 which is accessible straight from landscape mode, no tricks. But an even easier way to get applications to show up there is to add the line... Content-Folder: IM & Email ... to your application's JAD file. Then, it goes to this folder automatically when you download it and no hacks required. Just thought I'd post this because I was tinkering with that and didn't expect it to actually work, but it did... lol

Hey, I just Downloaded Opera Mini v. 4.2 (I would tell you to get it, except for the fact that it is not working)on my SCH-u740, and whenever I try to launch it, it brings up the error message "Uncaught Exception Game/App. Terminated" I recently formatted my hard drive so I lost QPST, and I can't look to see what's wrong. I know this also happens for some other applications. Does anybody have any idea of what's wrong?

Subject: New Firmware is Available!!
Well I was on the Bell website and I noticed a few new features listed on their website for the U740. Features such as GPS support, html browsing and after looking at the manual there was no mention of browsing not available in landscape. I called technical support and asked them why my phone would not support GPS, and that I had tried to add the feature ;-). They asked me if I had firmware version ES.U740 G08 and I told him I didn't. So there is new firmware!! My phone is only 6 months old and still under warranty. They said they would courier me a loaner phone, then I would send my phone back with the courier, they would update the software, send it back to me by courier and then I send them back their phone by courier, all for the fee of 25 dollars Canadian funds. Sweet!!! They said after I received my phone with the upgraded software I could call them and add the feature.....Not! Finally I am going to have a phone that browses the web in landscape!

Wow this hacking page is a great resource, using rumkin you can get mobile web browsing using Opera which is 10x better then the web browser that comes with the MTS phones (not sure about Bell but it's probably better then that as well). Also using rumkin you can get free Java games for your phone as well as free ringtones and backgrounds for your phone. I did this for a friend on an LG phone and he downloaded the same version of a ringtone he downloaded for 3.50$CAD and the version we downloaded was higher quality then the one he bought as well as longer. If you want a resource for downloading ringtones try AUDIKO.COM. Download the MP3 version and upload it using rumkin. Thanks alot for your help before i hated my phone, now i love it.

As of today (Oct 29/08) I suddenly could no longer use Opera Mini in either landscape or portrait modes. Did Bell get wise to us and somehow prevent us from being able to use this application? I get the message that Opera Mini could not connect to the internet although the crappy built in browser that Bell has in portrait mode works fine.

Subject: ringtones
Ok, bought the u740 a couple of days ago and can't get around this ringtone thing. Hoping someone can help. I sent a text to myself a couple of 30 sec. or under ringtones (mp3). When I push "save as ringtone" and "no" to set, the ringtone is saved, but not being used. Right? Then I set the ringtone to a contact. Here is where I have a problem - If I set more than one ringtone to more than one contact, it will only play one ringtone. I can get the home contact to play a ringtone I saved, but if my mother's ringtone is set for another ringtone I save (a different tone) it uses the default and not the one I set it for. Do I have a defective phone or something? That seems pretty hard to believe because my old phone did that as well. I just want to be able to have 10 different ringtones for 10 different contacts. Is that so hard? Please! Help ME!

I also have a !!new!! way to get into your applications folder in landscape and a way to have applications launch in landscape without having to use the trick! RINGTONES/APPLICATIONS/GAMES I haven't went into GREAT detail on some of this stuff (drivers/SPC/qpst setup) so go to http://www.u740.ca to get a better walkthrough if you need it. Step 1: Get the drivers for the appropriate phone.. the U740 drivers seem to work with my A920 just fine 2: Get the SPC for your phone 3: Find a copy of QPST 4: Connect to the phone with QPST EFS Explorer 5: Take ringtone and make jad file for it (you can use JADmaker if you want or make it by hand, its not too hard.) The phone will take mp3 files, tho you would want to cut it down to 30 seconds or so to save space. 6: Put the JAD/(JAR, MP3, etc) into /brew/shared/jas/temp/install you can only install one at a time and then you have to restart, so keep that in mind. When you restart the phone will restart, then restart again, the ringtone/app should now be in downloads/whatever folder (this is pretty dependent on what was in the jad file) ____________________________________________________________ Landscape trick In portrait mode go into downloads/applications goto "Get new" and it should start with a black screen saying connecting with a globe rolling around. if not you need to restart you phone. quickly, while the globe is still on there, go into landscape mode. The screen should now say disconnecting, you can either cancel or wait, it will revert back to the applications folder (or whatever one you were in) when it is done. ____________________________________________________________ Making applications/games open in landscape by themselves! this is kind of in addition to the ringtone/app/game part from above. You will need QPST/drivers/SPC 1: Open phone in EFS explorer and go to /brew/mod/obione/jas/index/ 2: Go through the ##.txt files until you find the one you want to open in landscape (Opera is a good example). 3: Change the CATE number to 16 (this is the IM & Email folder which opens in landscape without any other hacking) and save it somewhere that you can find it. if you just save it will go somewhere stupid and it wont modify the phone. 4: Overwrite the existing ##.txt on the phone with the modified one. 5: Restart the phone and go into landscape mode. Open the IM & Email and voila, its in there! Thanks to http://www.u740.ca for having a dedicated site to this phone. If anyone out there reads this that knows how to flash phones and/or mod firmware please email or pm me, I would really like to learn!

I found a bug in the firmware of this phone, can anyone confirm: You're typing a text and you receive a text from someone other than you're typing the message to, then you send the text you were typing, the phone gets confused and sends the text to the person who just messaged you, not the person you wanted to message. Someone please confirm, this is a huge bug and I want to take it to Bell and get it fixed.

Subject: Apps on landscape mode. Highlight.
To anyone using the landscape trick. I tried many times the recommended trick without success. However, it must be noticed that there are some details missing in the instructions (they are great by the way but didn't work all the way for me). When you open your phone in portrait mode push on menu settings. Then put your finger over 7 but DON'T PRESS IT JUST YET and try closing the lid as far as possible on you finger. Once you reach your finger PRESS 7 and quickly remove your finger, close and open your phone in landscape mode. The most important thing to remember is that you should push 7 only when the lid touches your fingernail. It will take couple of tries but it should work. I got my phone this week and I use applications in landscape mode.

My girlfriend got stuck with a phone that is cell one that she had added to her plan and the friend kinda screwed her on the phone so I took it over. The other phone is a sony ericsson walkman w3001 sim type. My question is, is it possible to to clone a sim type with a cdma? I paid alot for my u740 and I'd really like to be able to use this instead of the w300i. If I'm not mistaken the u740 was a verizon only phone so I think I'm basically hit due to the firmware but thought maybe someone could come up with a miracle lol.

Subject: Firmware upgrade notes.
I recently upgraded the firmware on my phone from AG28 to AH31. I suggest to people that the backup their contacts, text messages, apps. etc. before hand and have bell completely wipe your phone for the firmware upgrade. The technicians did not do this for me and there were numerous corrupted files/instabilities in the programs. I ended up doing a full phone reset manually and it fixed most of the issues except the corrupted files that still exist on the file system. Also, the media player now has a few second delay when loading. I haven't pinpointed the source (i.e. processing, sorting through files etc.) but it is only on the initial load after the phone has been booted, so if you turn phone off/on it'll happen again but only on the first loading of media player. Oh by the way my phone took 2 weeks for the turnaround on firmware upgrade if anyone is wondering.
