FAQ updates!


Please visit our new website at Samsung t809 FAQ

I've updated the FAQ today and will continue to do so. I'll likely have quite a bit more information to add, so if you're watching it, take a look at the end of today. I'll also try to get a PDF version of the FAQ online so you can download and print it.

Thanks for all the help and comments, I'll be going through ALL the comments today in the entire history of this site and making sure all your questions are answered in the FAQ.


  • maybe add a section on the buzzing issue a lot of people seem to be having. so far it's assumed to be caused by wireless routers. i have the problem and it's rather annoying (for the other person at least). i'm attempting to get my phone exchanged in hopes of no longer having the buzzing issue.

  • I'm trying to find someone in the Midwest who has the buzzing issue, I am willing to swap phones for a week and see if it still continues for them.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll add it today!

  • I'm in the midwest. St. Louis specifically. I might be willing to swap phones. But i'm going to call t-mo tonight and see if they will just exchange my phone.

  • I had a buzzing in my t809 today and I just unplugged the power that was still in the phone. A sure fire way to test if it's the wireless would be to turn off your wireless router and place a few calls and see if it goes away.

  • dyaus: If you get an exchange and it still happens, let me know. I'd be willing to send you mine just to "test" on your end, and if the problem still happens, we can figure it isn't specifically the phone alone but the phone + location.

  • thanks. i'll let you know once i get a new phone.

    ben, i've tried unplugging my router and i still have the problem. but i'm also in an area where there are about 3 or 4 other wireless routers that i can't unplug.

  • i've just discovered this page, as i've been shopping around for a place to buy this phone (love it already) other than walking into T-Mobile (which it looks like i'll have to do).
    i like what you've done here, and i'll definitely be back for more information!

  • have you been able to get the personalized google page to work on the phone (the phone formatted one)?

  • I only have the buzzing problem where the TMo signal is weak. If I'm calling from areas where the signal is strong, there is no buzzing on the other end. Unfortunately the signal is really weak at my house - 1 bar, so I am going to switch to some other phone.

  • It looks like it's either the buzzing noise, or the dust problem. I got mine 2 weeks ago, and i will get an new replacement for the upgrade in 7 more days *employee program* so i'm just waiting to see what happens.

  • yea the buzzing issue is also a problem up here in Minneapolis, I've only had one complaint with, my phone, but my buddy has the same phone and he's had quite a few complaints. I not sure if it's a wireless router thing or not cuz we have one in the house and nobody has said anything about the buzzing and where i work there's a ton of wireless routers and no one has said anything.

  • Well I got frustrated with the lack of headphone adapters so I decided to cut the earbuds off mine and make my own adapter.

    the operation was a success but was very difficult. The wire inside the cable is a metalic ribbon with an anti-conductive sheath.

    Basicly it's like trying to solder foil.... There is no plastic sheath, it's a spray on anti-conductive that you can't pull off with wirestrippers. I burned mine off with a soldering iron, however this makes it impossible to get solder to stick, even with flux. Also, since there is foil instead of wire it will melt if you don't use a low wattage iron.

    I was utterly unable to solder my splices and I had to result to twisted pairing, electrical tape, and shrink tubing. So far it has held up well but it's a little Ghetto. I have a nice set of Sony Fontopia headphones that I have plugged in and I must say it is a different experience with them. The sound quality on this phone with a good set of phones is excellent. The noise level is a little higher than my ipod but is acceptable.

    I would not recommend doing what I did, but if you can get it to work it's worth it.

    I've seen headphone adapters for the 600 series and it looks like the same kind of connector. Does anybody know if they are compatible? If so click my name and leave me feedback on one of my sites. Thx.
