More fun with the Samsung Behold!

So you’ve got that new Samsung Behold, and while it’s a pretty cool phone it does leave a few things to be desired – but what doesn’t, right?  You’ve enable full HTML browsing, but you still have a couple of nits to pick with the device.  Perhaps you think that the ringers or alerts are just not loud enough?  Well, thanks to some excellent detective work from forum member spinn360 we have a possible solution to that problem for you!  Spinn360 provides us with a nice little overview of the test mode settings for configuring some new volume levels for your new phone.  Make sure you read through that and understand what you’re doing before making those changes though.

Thanks also go out to forum member inebriat3d for showing us how to get Google Maps on your Behold!  So now you can find your way around when you go out on the town and don’t want to get lost, or need to find some cool new place to try out.  It’s not too difficult to do, but it does present a few hoops to jump through, so once again, please make sure you read and understand what you’re doing before making any changes!  Well, now you’ve got a decent browser, you can hear those ringtones and find your way around….what about some better gmail?  Forum member fleshdeep has confirmed that by using inebriat3d’s instructions that the GMail App does indeed work on the Behold, and has the screen shots to prove it!  You can try other java apps and see if they work as well.

Which brings us to our last tidbit of the night!  You’ve got some pretty cool java apps on your Behold now, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to minimize one or two of them instead of exiting them out?  Spinn360 is back with another admin setting to do just that!

Hopefully these little bits of information can make your new Behold just a bit more fun to use!  I’d also like to thank all of the forum members that have provided the information for this entry – without you guys this stuff wouldn’t be possible!

  • I know this isn’t the place, but I can’t log into the forums for whatever reason, but check out the exclusive images of the Nokia N97 on my site, Easily the greatest device of our time. Bye, iPhone. Later, G1. See ya, XPeria1. Nokia runs it!

    We need to gather support amongst our subscriber group and demand T-MobileUSA carry this model in-store with AWS 3G support. This will be the greatest device of our time easily… I was supposed to be asleep last night, and am still awake at.:) 7:20am!

    ugh i hate the fact that this phone has only been out for a little bit and already people are coming up with better things to do with it unlike the (G1) which was suppose to be the best phone in the world so many people claimed.

    I’ve tried every method from both sites and the ONLY site that comes up SOMETIMES as full html is, EVERY OTHER SITE loads some seriously watered down version of wap sites.

  • Claribel

    Do any of these void the warranty? I would assume the google maps one would but how about the others?

  • mert

    hey I was wondering if anyone knows how to silence the message ringer because when I receive a text sometimes i can silence the ringer by pressing the end button or the volume adjuster on the side but sometimes that doesn’t work and I have to listen to the ringer even after I’ve replied to the text!

  • janitamm

    how do silence the buttons when you are texting though the volume is up for it to ring….and how can you make songs your text message alert…but that short vibration doesnt help and i cannot hear anything especially when i am sleep.
