You’ll be able to prolong the battery life of this puppy thanks to its Ambient Light Sensor that will make sure the phone’s screen lights up according to the ambient light around automatically.

Samsung Instinct tricks – Alarm Clock

Just found a way to make alarm work during airplane mode:
1) Display must be set to either:
       a)"Dim: Never Dim" or
       b)"Any of the other Dim options combined with "Off: Lock Key Only"
2) Set phone to Airplane mode: ">Settings >General >Airplane Mode=On
            note: clock will disappear from screen, but its still-a-tickin
3) Set alarm time: ">Main >Clock >Alarm"
4) DO NOT SCREEN LOCK  note: if you lock screen, your alarm will not sound until you unlock your screen (kinda defeats the purpose of setting the alarm, hunh?)
5) Connect to charger, slide Instinct into holder and get some zzzzzzzzzz’s.  Your Instinct will awake you at your set time. Samsung Instinct
not the ideal way to do it, but it works Samsung Cell Phone tips & tricks

Synching your outlook with your Samsung Instinct alternative

For all the people who use Microsoft Outlook, there is an application called Microsoft Outlook SMS that is a plug in to your outlook. If set correctly, every time you update your calender or set a task for yourself, outlook will automatically send you a SMS to your phone. This is good because you dont have to log on to Gmail Calender to see your schedule. Now, if you ask, what about if im mobile and I want to update my calender. The way around this is to use your gmail calender, make your new entry, if you always leave your mac/pc on, the gmail sync will kick on and sync your gmail calender with your outlook calender, then send you an SMS with any new appointments. This is an alternative to just using gmail calender. Hope this helps out.. Samsung Instinct
