You can't! It's not a smart phone it's a basic phone which means it can't do a lot of stuff that smartphones can do.

You can transfer files with a usb cable, or transmit them via Bluetooth if your computer has it. Getting full episodes of a television show to fit on your phone however is not such a great idea. Unless you have a large capacity sd card or tons of internal phone memory. Instead of uploading files, you could install Netflix or another streaming video program on your phone and you won't have to mess with uploading tv to it.

Question

Just bought a Samsung Brightside and when I make a call ( as soon as I dial) the screen goes black.

How can I keep the screen on a Samsung Brightside from going black right after I dial a call. Can wake it up but then it goes dark again and again. Need to have it stay illuminated so you can interact with it if you're paying online bills etc.. thanks

You should be able to adjust the inactivity setting on your phone. Go into the settings tab and select the screen inactivity timer. It's a typical battery saving utility on all cell phones...

No, the phone is autoset to go black per-the proximity sensor. If you have the phone on speaker that will help. Also, changing the time-out screen settings will do the trick there.

Well, the brightside does not have the rhapsody app (at least I'm pretty sure it doesn't)
Just get songs from "youtube-mp3"
and transfer them to your Memory on the phone.
hope that helps :)

How can I view a video received in a text message in a larger format. The video is very small even when saved to the phone or an sd card. So annoying!

Unfortunately, because of the hardware limitations of the phone, there is no way that the video can be increased, Im sorry about that.

You should be able to, however there are lots of factors that may prohibit the speed at which it loads. For example, internet connection speed and the speed of your phone's processor.

Unfortunately, no. Only smartphones are capable of displaying animated weather maps.

Question

Why can the black verstion of this phone download games but this one can't?

I was looking at the product descriptions on this website and I happened to compare two sets of two different phones and in both cases the black versions indicated that they could download games but the ones with a different color said they could not. Why is this?

no, that's one reason why I chose it! I am getting used to it, and like it better all the time! But I did not want to have to get a smart phone type that required the data plan.... and this one does not require data plan.

With Verizon service, this phone does not require a data plan, but one can be added later if you prefer. Check with your carrier before you purchase to verify this information is valid with YOUR phone plan.
