Question Anyone know how to make the Samsung SGH-J700 a more bearable phone?!?

I just bought the Samsung SGH-J700 because i needed a new phone quickly, after my beloved Sony Ericsson broke. Now totally regretting it! Have resolved most of the annoying little things about it, but was wondering if there is anyway to:

1) change the down shortcut to go to CONTACTS! ( not in the shortcut settings list)
2) make the middle button save+send messages rather than just sending them! ( i always forget what I'm talking about so it's kind of an important thing for me, and having to go into the options is too much effort...I'm lazy)
3) Change where the soft keys lead me!
4) Stop the middle button bringing me to the internet when i press the middle button, and instead, bring me to the main menu!

Any help would be much appreciated...I don't think I've ever regretted an impulse buy so much in my life.

Sorry you are finding issues with your 'impulse' buy.

Looking at the pdf instructions they are very uninformative to say the least ?

Its going to be a trial and error procedure by going thru the menu's one by one.

It may just be that you cannot change certain hot keys !

Maybe a current owner of this fone will post a reply for you.

If all else fails and you get another at least you have a back up fone unless you decide to pass it on somehow.

Good luck.

Some of these are just little annoying Samsung things. Theres not much you can do about it

My friend owned a J700 and he instantly swapped it with a family member for a U600.

Seeing the phone in person and after reading this thread/post I can see why.

I suggest getting another SE, as that's what your used to. If you buy another samsung these little things will still probably be in place so be warned

Hope you find the rite phone, if you need help drop a post in my 'New Phone' thread, and I'm sure we can help
