    I've noticed that it resets or shuts off when trying to delete ringtones.

    Hey Everyone, I have the same problem. sometimes it will do it when previewing a ringtone, but sometimes it will just do it to do it. Sometimes i will flip it up and it will shut off. Lately it has been notifying me that i have a text message

    Same problem, and its not water damage. This phone has never been wet or even in a humid place.

The problem is that the battery flexes out whenever you press down on the keypad. This is a problem with the design. What I did was put a piece of paper between the battery and the battery cover, to hold the battery down so it can't move. It works fine.

Maybe a bad battery, txting takes up more battery power than other things, i would take it back to the place where you bought it and have them look at it

My outside volume button doesnt work and i cant turn the volume up when im playing muci with my music player... how can i fix it?

the button is probably dirty inside the phone. I had a razr that had that problem BAD... I had to rebuild it several times. The last time I did it I spent ten hours, and when I was done it was so loud that I had the volume less than half and when it rang my wife and I both jumped off the couch.... I had problems with the volume buttons on the side as well.

Im buying a Samsung SCH-i760 from a friend do i need data package

text is considered data. Pick a plan that allows enough text messaging for your use.
Each provider has price plans. The phone you are buying from your friend may not be your best bet. Some providers offer free phones with a 2 year contract.
The phone your friend is selling is most likely locked to a provider.

I can't find my saved sounds on my samsung sch-u340

Hit "menu"
Go to "sounds"
go to "ringer type"
select "calls"
select "downloaded"

Any saved sounds that you have in the phone will be here. If they are not there, and you received them in a pic or text msg, you will need to go back to that msg and choose "save sound" in the options.
