    I am having problems with the gps lock on google navigation. When I first got the phone it worked fine and it still works fine on other things. I did a factory data reset and even tried GPSopt app still did not help.

    -Mp3s: I had an android prior to the infuse and I loaded custom mp3 ringtones and notifications. Did the same thing for my infuse but they refuse to play. They show up, but they don't play. Very frustrating
    Size should not matter on the ringtones. Though I have not experienced these issues personally, its not to say they do not exist.
    1. Connect your phone via the charge cord to a PC.
    2. Select Mass Storage on the Infuse
    3. Wait for phone SD cards to load, open and view both SD cards on the phone through PC via on screen options or through my computer.
    4. Choose SD card of choice and create a folder named "ringtones" all lower caps, and another folder named "notifications" also all lower caps.
    5. Find all ringtones cut and paste them to the ringtones folder. Do same with notifications.
    6. Unplug phone from charge cord and allow for the SD cards to load (mount), check to see if this has resolved your issue.

    Sorry if this is a reprint of instructions already posted.

    Yesterday,I noticed an issue that my phone was saying insufficient memory available right after I was re-uploading my apps after I rooted my phone.I did a factory reset on the phone cause I kept getting an error that the market has stopped working,and to force close.So I did this to fix any issues that was going on before I rooted the phone.The issue on the insufficient memory available turned out to be coming from the new android market,which I just found out now,while I was messing with a few things,so I uninstalled the updates for the android market.This fixed the issue and I was able to finish downloading all the apps I had previously before.

    Unable to play videos. Sometimes won't even let me play videos I recorded on the phone when this happens. Says unrecognized format.

    Apparently a common issue. Online some have reported it's because of memory issue or twitter app problem. I removed the app and am using the web for twitter and see if it improves.

    I got my Samsung Infuse about a week ago and for the most part love it. I have run into a couple of issues, though, and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing these problems.

    -Mp3s: I had an android prior to the infuse and I loaded custom mp3 ringtones and notifications. Did the same thing for my infuse but they refuse to play. They show up, but they don't play. Very frustrating

    -Phone deletes apps. I thought I was going crazy at first, but my phone has definitely uninstalled 3-4 of my apps. (I have shortcuts on my phone and then it says there's an error because they aren't installed). Anyone else having this issue?

    Also, anyone know a way to use the puzzle piece notification (like for the default SMS)-- if using 3rd party SMS?

    Thanks!
    My Infuse has just recently started deleting apps off my home screen!!! Also it says i have bars but wont dial out then I turn the signal off and on it goes to no service. It skips when it plays certain custom ringtones. Just recently started doing this hoping the update may fix some of it. Plan on upgrading soon regardless.

    From my experience with the Infuse, I bought a faulty 16gb micro sd card that gave me some similar issues with some of you. If you have your Ringtones directory on your external sd card. Create a Ringtones folder on your internal and drop them in there. I had no issues with it since.
    Same with apps. I didn't realize some apps were installing into my faulty sd card. (*as a reminder, widgets for app will not work if the app is installed to ext sd card.) Move them to internal memory. With as much internal memory the Infuse has, apps don't need to be in ext sd card. Only for the older android phones were that necessary.

    After realizing I had a bad micro sd card, exchanged it for a brand new one and has been working perfectly since. Let me know if this relieved any of your issues. You may have gotten a faulty samsung micro sd 2gb as well. It does happen

    I have had the problem with my phone not necessaritly deleting my apps, just making it to where I can't use certain widgets, such as Pandora. I have moved them all to my phone, but still am unable to add the Pandora widget. If I uninstall it and reinstall it I have that ability again, until I reboot my phone...any thoughts?

    I bought my wife the Samsung Infuse to replace her simple messaging phone. I bought it because I heard good things about Samsung phones. Guess I should have found this site first. I use a blackberry torch. If it has the applications available to the Droids or the Iphone then I would have got her one of these. It gets great wifi reception. It doesn't need rebooting every day. It gets great talk time and the battery lasts for days.

    The problems with the Infuse is as follows:

    1) Wifi reception is awful. It doesn't connect some times without shutting off the radio and turning it back on.
    2) It locks ups daily
    3) Its battery stinks (I knew this one before I bought it)

    Now my wife bought a protective cover and scratched the phone taking it off the pull the battery. So we can't return.

    I guess my thoughts about Samsung having good phones was a mistake?

    I am praying the Gingerbread upgrade will fix these issues but I am not holding my breath.

    I've never run into an issuer with the wifi not connecting on the first try, unless my router st home needs to be restarted.

    I have experienced lockups, but mostly due from me doing to much at once. I will saw I have had far fewer lockups than my Captivate.

    And yes, the battery does suck.

    I've never had a true 'complaint' about Samsung's product.

    Wow, you guys must had had the few faulty phones I heard about. I have never had ANY WiFi issues, My battery will last about a day and a half for me on regular uses (a mix games, calls, e-mails, and movies).

    I rarely see any lockups on my Infuse, maybe like two lockups or after a month of owning it? My music never skips or pauses, my ring tones are loud and clear with him pauses or skips that I have ran into yet.
    I haven't has any issues with my SD Card at all. And as for Apps, ALL Android phones have certain apps that they just don't get along with, or that don't work properly with on that one particular phone.

    That's not to say that I haven't ran into any issues at all though, 1 out of every 20 times that I wake my phone my screen brightness turns all the way up for now reason that I can tell. I'm not sure if it is an app or something else? But that's really it. I really hope that Gingerbread dos fix that.

    I love my Infuse and the only issue I have is trouble connecting to some access points. I have to disable/reenable WiFi to connect. Bothersome for sure.

    I have the same problems. It's very frustrating if you are waiting for important information thru text message or a miss a phone call because it's only vibrating. All of sudden it just stops. I restart my phone at least twice a day. I left iPhone for the Infuse and I'm strongly considering going back before the 30 day period ends to return it. I know you can't have custom notifications on the iPhone but the ones on there at least work.

    I have had my infuse for 4 months and consistently notice 4 problems:

    1. It drops a lot of calls. Much worse than my BB. Also during calls there are spots when you can't hear anything for a bit, then the sound comes back.

    2. Sometimes the phone just will not get data. I could not figure out why, with bars showing, etc; then when it would happen, I would switch to airplane mode, then back. After a moment data returns. WHY?

    3. Bluetooth does not automatically connect most of the time. I have to turn off bluetooth, wait a few moments, then turn back on, in order to use my car hands free.

    4. Random reboots. Maybe once every couple of days...but should not do this at all.

    Anyone have any suggestions about what to do with these problems? I do run juice defender on their "balanced" profile.

    Thanks!

    I bought my Samsung Infuse about 6 months ago and am now on my third phone. The first phone had problems dropping phone calls and the contact on the other line said it sounded as though I was "talking underwater". The second phone had sound problems which means it didn't make any sounds. This caused me to miss phone calls, text messages and be late for things because the alarm did not sound.

    My third and current Samsung Infuse is now having problems charging. The charger is fine but the phone does not read that it is plugged in therefore it does not charge. I have plugged into the charger that came with it, my car charger and another charger and plugging it into different outlets. I have tried turning it off, taking out the battery still nothing.

    I am wondering if any one else is having these problems with their phone and if so if is there a solution. I am almost to the point of telling AT&T to send me a completely different device because why should I have them replace this phone a fourth time.

    My phone reboots several times a day. Sometimes it just turns itself off and I don't notice until hours later when I wounder why I haven't heard any notifications go off.

    I'm second-guessing my decision to get this phone instead of the iPhone4.

    I went threw three phones myself also,to which the guy at the AT&T store said that it was just an bad batch of phones,which I thought to myself how can so many phones not work correctly and is android they way I should go.I would of bought an Iphone but the Iphone 4 wasn't out yet and my current blackberry of mine was literally falling apart,so I decided to give android an chance.

    I had the same issue with the underwater voice that other people told me quite often,which I fixed that with my Jabra stone 2 headset,but also found out that you have to habe this phone flat against your face,speak clearly,and be as close to the mic as possible.Now as the charging problem,I was only able to get my phone to work only with the charger that came with it but shortly a few months after,I went on to amazon to purchase an extended battery,which came with an wall mounting charger and two batteries for it.I just swap out batteries after one dies and the battery life has extended alot more compared to the stock one.You may just have an bad connector or the usb in the phone is messed up which was the problem I had with my second phone.You should try leaning it where the plug goes into it up on an book,which helped me in charging my device or look into an extended battery cause they are cheap and some come with an wall charger which run anywhere from $9-$15.

    I bought mine used off CL and the first thing I did was head over to the Infuse forums on XDA. Where I loaded it with a custom ROM (Infused 2.2.3) and have no issues other than the usual poor battery life. I also went to Amazon and got the charger with spare battery and just swap it when my battery gets low. Honestly the Infuse shipped with a poor OS. You really need to be running a custom ROM to get the best performance from the Infuse. Just my. 02 YMMV

    My phone keeps flashing the "Samsung" in white with black background, but won't turn on. The battery isnt dead, it was at 75% charged when it randomly turned off. What can I do to fix it? I need answers ASAP.
