New Samsung A900 Update

Sprint/Samsung came through with another update for my Samsung A900 phone. The update was supposed to fix some Bluetooth problems and picture mail problems. I could care less about picture mail as I’ve only used it a handful of times since I’ve had it. Bluetooth, on the other hand, is one of the reasons I got the phone. My problem was that my headsets kept ringing like there was an incoming call. I was quite excited to see this update, but within a few minutes, my excitement turned to disappointment. My headsets still ring. I guess Samsung needs more time to figure out how to do Bluetooth. I’ll call Sprint and Samsung and alert them of the issue in case they think they fixed it. It can’t be all that hard to work with Bluetooth as other companies have been doing it for years and people are quite pleased. Maybe it is just Samsung’s CDMA development teams don’t have a clue; it hasn’t been until recently that US CDMA carriers really offered Bluetooth phones (Sprint had the Sony Ericsson T608 a few years ago, but that was a half baked phone with lots of bugs).

  1. I can’t thank you enough for this blog. I have been having the same problem with my Samsung A900. I initially thought it was because my Treo 650 was in the room with my Samsung A900, however, further research explains different. My phone rings in my Plantronic headset (810) for no apparent reason. My Samsung also disconnects from my headset while my phone sits idle. Hopefully Samsung will get their act together and fix these probles. Cyrus
