I recently picked up the Samsung Blackjack II SGH-i616 with Windows Mobile 6 and realized that it has no WiFi. I've searched and read around forums that the WiFi microSD card from Spectec inserted would allow WiFi? Does it really work? I'm not an expert with this stuff. Are there any other ways to get WiFi for my phone?
I was thinking about ways that Wifi could be enabled on the Blackjack, and came up with the idea, why not connect a small Wifi USB dongle to the Blackjack? Could it work? Would there be any way to get drivers? I have seen some pretty tiny USB Wifi adaprers...For example, take a look at http://www.usbgear.com/USBG-2203.html. Now wouldn't it be cool if someone could put a Blackjack L-Shaped connector on something like that so it would rest flush with the back of the phone! But for now I'd be happy to keep the little adapter in my pocket and use a wire!
The Blackjack is an outstanding device but one thing that I miss that I have had in previous phones is wifi. Low and behold I stumble on the Spectec WiFi MicroSD card. Does this work with the BlackJack I/II? Does it require drivers, etc?
I can connect my blackjack 1 to my vista premium notebook for a speedy internet connection (USB). Our ISP won't fix the problem with our DSL until next week and we need internet for 4 people. I would love to use my blackjack internet connection to supply internet service to my router and broadcast over WiFi for all the comps to hook up to.
Well I came across this in my browsing around the net.Does anyone know if this will work? The Spectec company website indicates OS support for Microsoft Windows CE 4.X-5.X/smart phone (as well as PPC) support, and skype compatible, which I believe would be real plus for the Blackjack.
I have a Samsung Blackjack II from AT&T, it does not have WiFi. There is are now microsd cards that give you WiFi capability. The only question is whether the minisd card slot for the Blackjack II is for memory only or accepts power items.
Do Samsung's blackjack, blackjack II, and Epix use the same charger? I am trying to buy some extra accessories from Ebay and I noticed that blackjack I and blackjack II have different prices. I believe Epix and blackjack II use the same charger; but wasn't sure whether blackjack I cables are compatible with Epix.
Does anybody know REAL sar values for BJI and BJII. I've found some numbers online but it is mainly for Europe where max rating is 2W/kg, couldn't find the values for N.America where max is 1.6W/kg. I goggled for hours and even went on Samsung website but no such info there. Also, what is the difference I mean how to compare when it says: "taken over a volume of 10 grams" and "taken over a volume of 1 gram"
I have had a BJ since the day they were released. It is not perfect, but I have really enjoyed it. I am considering a BJ II. There are several nagging issues with the BJ that never got resolved with an official ROM update. I want to see if these still exist with the BJ II. 1. No voice command over bluetooth. 2. Wonky bluetooth stack making it difficult to use a device with the BJ and another phone without having to delete it and add it every time. 3. No tethering with Internet Connection Sharing in WM6.
So, what's the story on these issues and the BJII? Does it have these same problems? Also, does it have the same 200 mhz processor, or is it faster? And, when is the official WM6.1 coming out for it? One last thing. People who have owned both phones, is it as reliable as the original? Do the things that worked well with the original work at least as well with the new BJ? Will I miss the jog wheel on the side of the phone?
I just recently got a new Blackjack from "AT&T".All the settings are how they should be from what I can see, but I can't send any MMS. I can receive them but I can't download the attachment.Also at the top, I have an E instead of a 3G like i see on the other blackjacks.any help is appreciated,
As anyone else had some problems with this. I keep getting cant find URL. And then some videos will play then some dont. I have tried the Windows Media Player and a tcpmp player. Still nothing as of yet.
I searched the forums and couldn't find a definitive answer on this so here goes. Is there a program to get Satallite Navigation on a Blackjack? If so, does it require internet capability? Does it require an external (bluetooth) GPS receiver? I have the basic $39.99 package with no internet but if I can get GPS I might reconsider.
Whatever happened to the upgrade to WM6? Did it fall off the face of the earth all together?Seems for the last few months there was much hype and speculation.Then I saw Oct 5 as a release date. Now everything has gone silent. Did I miss something?

I can't seem to get the GPS on my Blackjack II to work. Google Maps just stays at "Seeking GPS Satellites (0). ", although I probably didn't try it long enough- although I have heard people mention that they got a lock immediately on the first try. I have gotten the same results with GPStest(the built in one, not the Chartcross version). I currently have the GPSID settings utility installed. I have not, and do not want to use TeleNav.
I bought a BJ2 off Craigslist. It powers on fine, but with I enter my sim in it, it stays on the ATT screen for close to 10 mins and then says bad sim or something. It's a good sim. I took to ATT and they are not able to help.
Has anyone succeeded in using bluetooth to syn and/or tether their Blackjack? Everytime I try to connect my Blackjack using bluetooth, I get the message "Connection refused by Blackjack" or something like that. I've tried this with two Blackjacks and two computers. If someone uses bluetooth with the Blackjack.
I am trying to configure my outlook mailbox on my blackjack to be able to check my hotmail account, however it does not let me do any changes to the account settings. I have a premium hotmail account to allow me to access with outlook on my computer. Instead oulook on my blackjack downloads duplicates of email's I have on my Gmail account when i sync with my computer...
I can't get my new BlackJack to sync with ActiveSync. I have tried both AS 4.2 (came on CD) and 4.5 (download). The phone says "connected" sometimes, sometimes it says "Waiting for network". ActiveSync says "Synconizing" but nothing happens. There is an IP connection established but nothing happens (almost no pakets transmitted). The troubleshooting points to a missing IP connection but there is one and it works (I can even ping my BlackJack). When I click explore I can access my BlackJack and transmit files but I can't sync Outlook or favorites.
I rely a lot on this website for great information on phones. So once again I ask for the help of professionals. I belive the Cingular Blackjack is a smartphone, Cingular tends to disagree. I have found some information available here http://do-somethingaboutit.blogspot.com/ and I would like to hear your opinions and your arguements as to is this device a smartphone or a PDA. Let's help Cingular open their eyes.
