Be careful with this one. The original firmware does not have a way to do a hard reset other than through a menu choice in Windows. That is all and fine if you are able to launch WM6, but if you can't the device is useless. There are multiple threads on this online, and Samsung in most countries are clueless about it and refuse to release the firmware upgrade online. I bought mine in the US, but live in Australia, and even Samsung here cannot get the upgrade. Wish I never left my Treo.... :(

I can confirm I have a nonworking i780 and I have not found a way yet to do a simple hard reset. The device should not have been shipped without this crucial functionality.

another annoying problem is that the LED light does not work when phone goes in top standby mode.
Have written in to Samsung but no response....
Samsung needs to get it's act together if it wants to be a seriuos contender in the increasingly competitive market
