i am on my 4th eternity phone. all of them had the same problem. they would shut down and i would have to take out the battery to turn it on. three different att reps look at the problem. i'm ready to take this one back and get lg vu
Did they replace the SIM any of those times? I have not heard of anyone else having your problem. There was a guy who discovered one of his songs or wallpaper were causing a similar issue.

Had this problem once, albeit with another phone, replacing the SIM did the trick.
I currently own the iPhone. I don't even own the Eternity yet, but from my research since it's come out, I love it. Sure I'll miss the iPhone's apps and maps. Still, I'm planning to make the switch to Eternity as soon as monetarily possible. This forum is a great help. Keep posting your opinions.

I really Love this phone.
Me & my Husband just got Eternity about 2 weeks ago and we're really love this phone. I used Eternity for search web, checked email and also chat with my friend in my beaktime or anywhere., It worked very good for us.
I uploaded the pictures from my computer by cable to the phone. it's amazing, The pictures appeared on my Eternity screen was so clearly and quality same as my laptop.
I made some gif files set as wallpaper and it worked very well, me and my husband we're got a lot of compliments from our friends.I also used my favourite song to created ringtone, the file size is around 295-289 kb it worked great for me so far.
This Samsung Eternity for us is Amazing and such a sweet phone .

I quickly found out, after I purchased the phone, that it had no speed dial. What? Didn't many of the first cells phones out on the market have this basic feature? Samsung really missed the mark on this one. And voice dial too.....no voice dial on this one. Based on this I was ready to return the phones. I've had it for about 3 weeks. However, the last week I've been playing around with the phone a little more and have actually come to like it. I hate all the hype about Apple products, especially the iphone. I did not want to be bound to a $35 data plan every month. That gets real expensive! So I opted for the Eternity which although I've heard lacks a lot of the free applications of the iphone, it's a pretty neat phone that can become an excellent phone if the following issues are fixed:
1. No speed dial
2. Call volume is on the low side, if you have some noise around you even in the max volume setting you may still have a hard time hearing
3. When you scroll through your contacts sometimes contacts open up accidentally
4. Too many applications for which you have to pay extra per month. This gets WAY too expensive.ButI realize they're in the business to make money.
5. Would be nice to have voice speed dial
6. Annoying widgets which you don't use cannot be deleted from your desktop
7. The way contacts are stored is by first name, this is kinda weird, maybe I'm just not used to it.
8. Wallpaper cannot be customized, can only select from ATTs preset wallpapers which is 4.
I know I'm being kinda picky but this is not a $50 phone. I can't believe Samsung's product development and focus groups could not point out these problems before the product was produced. I really hope that the update fixes somes of these issues. I've read other posts that Samsung customer service is not good. Anybody know when the update might be out and will that be pushed onto our phones or do we have to keep checking back on Samsung's website?

i think the call volume is actually perfect.
As for the widgets you can go to settings, click on display and light, then widget and just uncheck all the boxes if you don't like the widget bar.
And for wallpapers, you can set your own pictures as wallpaper.
