    Does USCC keep a tight lid on their Galaxy version, or can you add outside apps at will (without being rooted)?

    Not a problem. I reloaded a butt load of apps via Dropbox already.

    Mesmerize seems to have some minor TW changes, almost zero bloatware (City ID, Yahoo mail, telenav), I have 3G at my house with it lol.

    Heh. If anyone gets to keep it, it's gonna be me Very nice phone, and my first run-in with US Cellular. Excellent network here, rock steady and fast. I might have to give them another look

    If you root the phone, does that bypass the tethering charges and the data limit?

    Does it have video out similar to the captivate? I have a Mesmerize but I can't find the video out feature shown in this video... Very disappointing. Any suggestions?

    Is there a way to differentiate SMS messages and email messages as far as notification tones what I would like is to shut off my email notification tone and leave my sms message tone on in my application when people need me sooner they text me instead of email me.... coming from a black berry it was easy to do on that.
    thanks in advance

    Not going to discuss theft of services. Sorry

    There are no video out settings on the Mesmerize. The hardware may be capable, but there's no software to support it.

    adb pull /system ?
    It's in the other thread.

    I see on the USC website that the Mes includes a 16 Gb Micro SD card. Is that true?

    Just recently received the Mesmerize as a gift but I am still having issues figuring out what should be the simplest things.


    I have downloaded music and some will end up in music player list others will show up in notification list. Why, and how do I delete music out of notification list?

    Downloading music from computer should be simple and I thought I figured it out but once downloaded tried to play songs and says does not support this file. (WMA) I cannot find in user manual what files it will support.

    Thanks in Advance for any help I can get!!

    OK... first off the mesmerize is my first smart phone so I am completely new to all this so this question may be stupid. I am having connection problems, the wi fi is weak, which I would expect at my house (computer does the same), but shouldnt I have 3G connection at all times or something? I mean I spent enough money on the phone I would think this wouldnt be an issue

    You can go to the following directory:
    sd card/media/audio
    here you should see folders called "alarms" "notifications" and "ringtones"
    here you will find your mp3's the system uses for alarms, notifications and ringtones.

    As for WMA I would recommend searching for a 3rd party application that plays these on appbrain or the app market. You can always google search "playing wma on android" and helpful threads will come up.

    Your phone may be able to receive a 3G signal, however if you don't get cell reception in your house you're going to have a problem - which leads to the question - how good is the cell coverage in your area and is 3G available where you are? You might want to check on the US Cellular coverage map: U.S. Cellular Coverage Indicator

    If Wifi is also weak then perhaps your walls/ceiling/floor are blocking the radio waves.

    When going to the suggested sd card/media/audio I select notifications and there is nothing in folder, when selecting alarms same thing. There is not an option for ringtones in that folder.

    This part of the phone has got me crazy, I cannot seem to wrap my mind around it.

    You are not crazy. There is not a ringtone folder there. You just need to add a new folder there (same place the notification folder is) and call it ringtones. Put any audio files that you want to appear as on the ringtone selection menu here. If you want to use the audio file as a notification tone for text messages etc. put the audio file in the notification folder. Same thing goes for alarms.

    Hope that helps.

    Just got the Mesmerize yesterday and I have to say it took a little getting use to since I switch from Blackberry. I have certain notifications set so that the led flash is suppose to "flash" when I receive a message, but it doesn't seem to be working. Am i missing something?

    Thank you!

    XDA put out an app called NoLED that does great for that. It lights up a icon on the screen when you get emails or sms/mms. It works great and doesn't really effect your battery at all. The rest of the screen stays as dark as it does when it's off.

    How is the picture quality for the camera? I take an unusually high number of photos with my phones and do not want one that cannot take good to great photos in most lighting.

    Thank you in advance.
