I recently got the new Samsung Advance A885 Phone from Telus, and while I think that the phone itself is appealing in looks, I have some problems with it as well. For one, setting up voicemail is a problem, because I can't seem to find a way to type in my password to access my voicemail. Because the phone is a touch screen, there is no number pad included on the phone, but rather just a touch screen number pad that comes up when dialing or messaging. This number pad however does not come up when trying to put in my password for voicemail. Another issue I have with the phone, is that it does not include the internet when I wanted to buy a game. I can access the internet any other time, but cannot purchase a game on my phone. The messaging on it has proven difficult often as well. I will recieve a message that has three parts, but will only recieve the first two parts, and the third part will ALWAYS say "New picture or video! View at telusmobility.com/snap. Nouveau message photo ou video! Disponible a telusmobilite.com/clic." On the other hand, I really enjoy the touch screen, and I find the numbers large enough to text on (although when using the QWERTY texting, the buttons are much harder to use -you can use QWERTY texting when you turn the phone sideways) I like the image slideshow that occurs every time a text message goes off, or you lock your phone again. I really like the phone, but I may have to opt for another one, if I can't get all my problems sorted out.
