While playing around with the phone, I came across the "Calibration" feature on the phone (No I did not read through the instructions first....I'm one of those who plays around with the phone to learn how to use it). So since I did not calibrate the phone myself, I decided to try it. At first I did not think it was working, because as I tapped the little cursor, nothing happened. Although I did get it to work, but I had to tap the cursor several times before it would move. Now according to Samsung who I emailed, they said you are suppose to use the STYLUS when calibrating the device. However, my phone did not come with one of those. I guess my question is: Has anyone else calibrated their phone after using it for a few days and if they have, did they have to TAP the little cursor over and over to get it to move?

It doesn't matter how many times I tap it or where I tap it or how hard I tap it. I usually takes anywhere from 20-30 taps to get the button to move. The directions on screen say "tap the center of the target. Repeat at the target moves." So I tapped the center once and waited for the target to move... I'm still waiting... two weeks later....
I've had this phone for over a month and my conclusion is that it is LAME. Poorly designed. The menus lock up and are generally slow. Trying to tap a button nearly twice the width of my finger simply results in frustratingly chasing the menu around the screen. Can't access most features when your in a call (I bought this phone thinking I would use the calendar feature, put my entire calendar in it... then a client called and asked for an appointment on a certain day... I had to hang up just to see if I had an opening, Lame, Lame, frustratingly Lame. No way to back up your contacts or calendars (the backup feature in Samsung's own downloadable software DOES NOT FUNCTION WITH THE ETERNITY.
Contacted Samsung about these issues... They did respond with the statement that none of these issues would be addressed... LAME LAME LAME!
The last time I buy a Samsung product... But then again, who makes a phone that's not all about stupid time wasting apps and is actually a solid communication tool? We are all to blame for that, I suppose.

Well, I used to love my Samsung Eternity, now the last 2-3 months, it's calibration is HORRIBLE! At times I can't even reply to a text because the calibration is so bad that, the incorrect keys or icons are entered! This is so frustrating! Yeah I tried the calibration feature, it never works! I can never get the litte red X to move! I tried tapping with a stylus that I had from an old phone! That does not work! Then all of a sudden it will work for a few calls or texts, and the again it's back to it's calibration problem.!! I can't do anything with it, cause it's so bad, and of course this happens exactly after 1 year and what 4 months. So the warranty is expired, and my phone is a piece of crap! If any one knows how to fix this, it would be appreciated. Yeah I know, the fix to dump this piece of garbage, I will never buy a Samsung again!
