sorry for not updating this after I got the phone... ok here it goes:
I absolutly LOVE the phone!! it's amazingly light too. My service is AT&T with mMode...
The camera that is taking pictures takes suprisingly good quality 640x480 res pictures...
The video camera on the other hand has 2 bad things:
1) Quality is pixelized
2) The defult time limit is 11 seconds at a time (can be fixed)
it has a polyphormic ringtones capability and it can play WAV files as ring tones..
it has 3 ways to connect it to your PC:
Infrared IR port
and a regular cable
behind the battery has a MMC (MultiMedia Card) that can be anywhere from 16MB to 128MB of storage. The Factory one is 16MB but since it takes about 35KB for a picture i can store about
The videos on the other hand... a 11 sec video takes about 90KB so as you can see... with a 65MB MMC you can last for a LONG time. You can get a 128MB card but the bigger the card, the more it will slow down the performance of the phone
Right now I plan to get a MMC reader/writer that plugs into my PC and that's another way to connect your PC to your phone... a good way to back up your MMC on your PC
it has E-mail and Web browser capabilty witch are very nice but for the web, they charge .03 cents for every 1kb of data transfered
The thing that bothers me the most is that I can't get the E-mail settings right so for now I can't use my E-mail... if I get it, that'll be another way to send pictures and videos to my PC
You can download games and applications for it. Most of them you have to pay though.
It has REAL Player on it so you can watch videos that are stored in you MMC
There is a CD that comes with it and it installs a program that you can easily put stuff on your Cell phone. For example it has a capability that converts MP3 files into it's own version for the phone and then you can use the phone as a MP3 player or just use the song as a ring tone
Now apart from all the little gagets it has, the Phone itself is really good, the bettery lasts for a VERY VERY long time considering the very bright screen. It wears off really fast when recording a lot of videos and taking picutres
the reception is really clear, and since the antena is internal that's a big plus
so that's about it....
any questions, just ask
