    Samsung Blaze

      I posted this on the Blaze discussion board but I wasn't sure if there was any traffic over there.

       

       

      I expect to receive the Blaze tomorrow and I am wondering if I made a mistake and should have gone with the Galaxy S II?  I have the Vibrant 3g now and have gone through 2 years of misery with it, I don't want to make the same mistake 2ce.

       

       

      Any real reviews or input???  TIA!

          I'd say the lack of traffic on this forum means either the phone is great and no one has issues, and/or not many people are buying it.  you have 14 days to decide for yourself and return/exchange it if it's not right for you.

            They're both nice phones, kind of depends on what you value more as far as screen size vs. pocketability, etc.   I'm also ready to ditch my Vibrant 3g but I definitely want to wait a couple weeks to get a look at the One S, I'm leaning toward that over the S II right now.  With all the Vibrant problems it's hard to not at least consider trying out an HTC over a Samsung this time around.   Overall I've been fairly happy with my Vibrant but right now it feels like I'm using my G1 again.

              Personally I am waiting to see the HTC One S before deciding, but I did look at the Blaze and there is a good chance I will buy this instead. My biggest concern is lack of development, but when I bought the Defy I had the same fear..and before long there was a ton of development in the works.

               

              I think if the phone is good people will come around. Especially if the price is right.

                Yeah, the one s will be the phone I'll be going to from my sensation.

                Finally a HTC Android with a amoled screen.

                I am certain that phone will have more development then the blaze cause that phone will be sold internationally with very little change.

                  Good news....the Blaze has root! Check out XDA for more info.

                    I ended up getting the blaze but since I received it I have zero service at home.  I called tech support and they weren't much help.  I'll be sending it back.  Too bad because otherwise I love the phone

                      were you using your old sim card, I believe you need to use the new card which came with the phone.  maybe your data plan needed to be updated.

                      • 8. Re: Samsung Blaze

                        I am using the new one they sent in.  Wouldn't they have updated the data plan when I called customer care and tech support?  Sorry if that's a stupid question, I'm not familiar what needs to be done - I'm totally clueless

                          do you not get TMO data anywhere, or just not at your house.  if nowhere, call cust service and make sure your data plan is set up correctly for that line.  I assume you had a data plan on your old phone.  maybe it did not transfer when you changed sim cards.

                            I am fine once I'm out of my neighborhood but I'm only getting one and sometimes 0 bars at home and never 4g.  I didn't have any issues with my last phone.  It's not only data but calling as well

                              What kind of phone did you have before? Could be a bad unit, but as others stated it could also be set up incorrectly.

                                  maybe the sim card is bad or not connecting correctly.  re-seat the card - take it out of the phone and put it back in.  if that does not help. then replace the sim card (free).

                                    I tried this, no luck.  Can I go to the store to swap the sim or do I have to call Customer Care?  I ordered the phone through customer care
