    I just checked the site and it is showing most of the accessories for the Samsung Vibrant to be out of stock. Bummer!

    Can’t seem to find the car dock shown above anywhere on Samsung’s website. They have the cheezy universal one in their accessories section, but that’s about it. Anyone seen or have a link to the one pictured? I’d love to have a good car dock for GPS nav in the car. I’d also love it if the GPS actually worked. ;) Samsung please fix!

    I really like the phone. The sales material shows a dock/ charger with speaker and software but it seems to be vapourware. Then there is the regional problem. Even if these accessories exists, it all seems to be marked: Not for Australia. Is Telstra behind this?
    Thank you.

    Be aware that the audio output jack on the Samsung Vehicle mount does not work.

  • anthony

    I have yet to find this mount anywhere? does anyone know where to buy it at? I really want one that will charge the phone and not have a bunch of wires hanging everywhere.

    Wireless Media Stick by HSTI
    I came accross the Wireless Media Stick and got one as an accessory to my Galaxy S. Now I take my laptop and share files and folders anywhere.
    I managed to stream a whole HD movie through the phone from my laptop to my non DLNA LG TV.

    Amazing! highly recomend the Wireless Media Stick .

    I just bought a vibrant and decided to purchase a seperate and better headset. Yes the one that came with, is OK. But I want some true clean sound. So I went and dropped $100. on the sennheirser headset. To my suprise it does not work. I does say on the box for the IPhone. But of course the sales person states it will work. Yea right. I returned it and tried two more of the same.

    Not compatable. So what do I buy. That is not, bluetooth. Obviously, money does not matter. Well within reason of course

    So what do I buy that is compatable, that will give me great sound. Fantastic sound. So I hear the bass, mids and tweets and my ears don’t bleed from the low quality of other headsets;.

    What do I buy and where to buy it.

    I live in Vancouver, while Coquitlam BC Canada. Best Buy or Furture shop has nothing. I need something soon, that is compatable with the 5.1 feature of the galexy s vibrant.

    Thanks

      Motoroal S9 bluetooth headset works great with Vibrant and has great sound.  Heard the newer S10 model is not as good. Buyer beware
