This might be a long shot, but here I go. I bought a Samsung i730 from ebay. It worked great. I decided that I needed more signal strength for better reception so I bought an external antenna. After I put in the external antenna, my reception was great. Take out the external antenna... no more signal without the external antenna. I think I fried the internal one. Any suggestions?
If you do a search at pdaphonehome.com a guy has replaced his antenna and provided step by step instructions for how to do it yourself with pictures. I don't know if frying it can make sure getting a new antenna will fix that but thats something you can try before replacing.

That TV will longer work with any Antenna by itself..the reason is a few years back the government mandated all TV signals will be HD. they sent out HD receiver boxes to allow old non HD TV's receive HD signals...I have a TV in my camper with the receiver Works great...Just see if you can locate one..there were thousands sent out..so they are out there Try Ebay..good luck.
You need to check your antenna strength, this is done through the digital converter box. Those channels may have lowered their broadcast signal and your antenna cannot pick them up anymore. You may need a outdoor antenna to pick up the channels. These can be purchased at any home improvement store. There is no such thing as a digital antenna. They are broadcasting digital signal instead of analog over UHF stations instead of VHF in most markets.
The Samsung SCH-i730 doesn't have a USB port, but it has a different port that underneath the phone itself. You need to use an adapter so that you could connect it to the computer. Look for the adapter SCH-i730 Lil Sync USB connector.
There could be a possibility that the battery is not working correctly. To isolate this, try to use another battery to see if you will get the same problem.
NOTE: To take care of the battery, never charge it if it's not running out of charge. Never unplug the charging battery if it's not fully charged.
Sounds like some area in your screen will no longer connect. I lost about 1/8" of the right side of my screen. To run the calibration, I touched the screen left of where the dots appear. I had to tap the four dots about twenty times before it came out of calibration mode. That part of the display will probably never operate again.
I took it into a Verizon store. The kid told me this happens enough to not be a rare occurence. Of course, this was a store where they only sold phones but didn't repair them, so I'll be going in to the other Verizon store (on the same street nevertheless) today.
I don't have the solution, but this is directed to "Guest" (that posted on Nov. 3, 2007.): I don't think you'd want to call Verizon because they're simply the carrier for the network. Samsung made the phone, so even though it says "Verizon Wireless" on the phone, the people you should contact would be from Samsung. Samsung would know more about the techical details of the i730, since they manufactered it. Sorry this is so long......
