I read (http://www.motorola.com/mediacenter/news/detail.jsp?globalObjectId=7293_7235_23) that Verizon Stores will not get the KRZR until October 5th. Any chance they might have them before then? I'd like to check it out before I make a purchase. I'm scared it will be too much like the razr for me.

i have the same phone and love it! i got mine of ebay for 189 and its been one of my best purchases ever. I've only seen one other person with it, and that was at my gf college and they area testing area for a new service and they gave the campus people these phones to test it with.

I just got a new black faceplate / battery cover for 4.99 on ebay and i changed my theme to an all orange one it looks so much better. I get so many compliments and blank stares when people see my phone because they've never seen it before.

Here are my thoughts,
The media buttons (on the top) are heat sensitive. The top case is solid quartz, its the same thinness as the Razr, yet the width is much less, and to top it all off, it has a better keypad, a better screen, a 1.3 MP camera, AND 3G, EV-DO. So yes, it's worth 200 bucks!

EasyCell.ca (I think there is a .com site for US but they ship too they DO have a brick & Mortar location just outside GTA in Thornhill about a 45min drive from downtown Toronto (GTA) where I live. ALso check out www.hi-mobile.net for really much better competitive pricing for GSM/UMTS phones. Ive personally purchased from them before. Very professional.

Rogers Wireless here in Canada is getting the K1 and also the new KRZR (the slider RAZR I think its called) This month. :D But I cant stand Moto's.

Good sites. I also can bring one to the table: http://www.wirelessimports.com/ .

But the KRZR is the flip phone, it's known as the KRZR K1 (GSM) and KRZR K1m (CDMA). The RIZR is the slider and the MOTOFONE is their new simple candybar.

But I think what I'm going to do when I switch to T-Mobile is buy a SK3 full price and then another quad band phone with a contract. What do you think? I'm between the RAZR V3r and the Samsung t619.

My new phone arrived today, (photo taken with my old k750i). It's not much of a change from my SE k750i, but it does offer 3G services, (video calling, high speed net access etc), and a better camera, (although I am always suspicious of cameras in phones). Feels a little lighter in weight and that is odd as it is bigger.

I would consider a smartphone, but for now happy with this and my Zire 72, (for occasional net access, they pair together fairly well too).

I bet it's coming to the US, but probably not Verizon (at least for now) because I haven't heard of a CDMA version.....yet.

[It's replacing my craptastic Samsung sch-A670.

I've had mine for over a year. It's been okay, but symptoms of it being thrown in my waste bin include poor battery life, random reboot, delay in call answer, loose hinge, infertility, and anal leakage.

Just out of curiousity, did yours snap in half? My brother's and his girlfriend's did, and I think mine will pretty soon, too.

Yep. I dropped it. It wasn't a bad drop, but when I picked it up, one of the hinges (where the service light is) was broken, so it's really loose. While you're talking, if you move your head in a certain way, it will flip shut.:mad:

Alright but thats not why I posted and I really dont see why that is a flame/troll post? We pretty much just now got the blackberrys here in Sweden and I was merely making an observation on how popular they are.

Also...the avatar thing...couldnt care less. I came back from 2 weeks off and at work Im in front of the computer all day long so MR gets alot of my time..

Oh and yes: the 8800 looks sweet.

With all the hype surrounding it, the SK3 seems like it would've been "new" 1-2 years ago. It has not made any significant improvements since the SK2. It's just a popular device among the high school crowd, imo.

It has made many improvements over the SK2:
EDGE (compared to the II's GPRS)
A 1.3 MP camera (compared to VGA
Lighter
smaller
better design (in my opinion)
MP3 Player
space for add'l battery
memory card slot
Quadruple memory
Ringer Profiles
Bluetooth
Flight Mode

And yes, I am a high school kid, and not only do I look cooler with one, but I like the keyboard of the SK over the SureType on the pearl. Although I think my dad's going to get the Pearl when we switch because it's a good phone for him (an 'adult' phone) and I hope he'll approve of my two phone idea as we're going to China, which is all 900 MHz, and the SK3 is missing that.

I don't understand your point. Right now, pretty much every smartphone that T-Mobile sells have the same capabilites as one another. So, for the time being, there's no difference, although when they roll out UMTS next year, then yes, there will be a difference. (oh and I'm amped for the SK4 with UMTS)

That's what I'm saying. For something as widely popular as the Sidekick, I'd expect better features. That phone was JUST released this year. I was expecting way more from its initial launch.

But ... OOOOhhhh hang on there bucko! (lol, I'm kidding, I'm not that old. I always wanted to post that though.)

- There is where you're wrong. Any basic phone based on GSM standard should follow them, such as the ability to save your phonebook (all entries) to the SIM card. SK3 like the SK2/1 before it CANNOT. This is what the Danger Desktop is for.
- A smartphone SHOULD have an OS that is extensible beyond its core package. Run better PIM management, file structure browser's, Ability to install applications. SK3 is limited to a small choice because developers must get approval to have an approved application by Danger, for them to market it to Tmobile to make it available to you. This is not extensible beyond its core capabilities.

OTHER REASONS:
- 10 different email accounts, 7 more than the SK3 can.
- The ability to send photos, recorded audio captured by the device to send via email.
- The ability to either PW Protect that memory card & also to Encrypt that memory card with 3DES. Ain't nobody gonna find those vids I made by the pool. (I wonder how law enforcement approach this if increminating evidence was on the memory card, :D - players get one of deees).
- save video to the card for playback on the device. Can you do this on your SK3?
- The ability to transfer music/contacts/pictures/MSWord-Excel-PowerPoint documents there as well bia BT either from/ the phone. Nope on the SK3.
- The ability to view lightly coded Flash websites on the Pearl. Even XHTML is better than the sidekick.
- A choice of full IM apps written Java for preference of layout, etc.
- Google Maps
- Video streams over TRUE EDGE class 10 not class 6 like the SK3.

Sorry, no pics of my four SE W810i's.....they're in the mail:) . New service, Cingular, deserves new phones for the family. We've been operating with old Samsungs etc. for a while. Been checking out this thread and others and was convinced that the SE W810i was Mac friendly and Cingular just came out with a deal where the cost after rebates was $99. So, I jumped. Thanks to all for their reviews and pics of your phones (BTW, the 02 Atom looked great!).

Although this may not be the correct forum for this I have a question. I'd like to protect my new SE. What's everyone using? I've checked eBay and there are some crystal clear plastic (hard) that cover both front and back that look promissing. However, here's a leather pouch that has a clip or belt loops that looks pretty good: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300035342204&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNA:US:12

It's about $10 with shipping. Looks good. Your thoughts. Cheers

Well I was able to compare the KRZR and Chocolate in person yesterday and I'm undecided. They seem to be about the same feature wise, is there anything one has that the other doesn't? Which should I get, or should I wait for the iPhone?

I got fed up with the size of my old phones (smartphones like the treo 700, and blackberry 8703e) so I sold them and was in the market for a new phone. I was in your same predicament. I knew I wanted one of Verizon's high end phones but I didn't know which one. It was between the Krzr, the Chocolate, and the Samsung SCH-a990. I ultimately chose the krzr for a number of reasons. First and foremost was design. The is hands down the best looking phone- ever made. With metal, and quartz as the two main materials used, this phone is not only beautiful but is also durable. Second, and finally, I chose this phone because frankly, it offers everything the Chocolate has in a package that is hands down- MUCH better looking.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was just reading PC Magazine's (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,2022561,00.asp) review of the KRZR and found that the reception isn't as good as the RAZR's. How is the reception and voice quality?

Is that a joke? Motorola designed the Razr from the ground up and everyone copied them! Now they make a mini version of it and you're trying to say they copied someone? Do you not see that the Krzr is a mini version of Motorola's flagship clamshell- which at launch was totally unique?

I don't really care about streaming TV until T-Mobile starts their UMTS network, which they apparently already have built half of new york's. Although I care about my camera. I like to make my own wallpaper.

The black is fine, and I like the blue, too. I'm in the middle. At least it's not pink.

> if you're a photo nut even 2.0MP will not be enough. you need a solution like SE's PURE OLED LED on the K790/800's + 3.2MP. Especially if you want quality photos.

> Moto did come out with the KRZR as a slim design of the RAZR; but in my opinion anyone buying it now is a fool. Paying top dollar WITHOUT any improvement over the standard, still no LED is just foolish. You need to think hard about purchasing it. In less than 6 months when Moto puts all the sales of the KRZR to an actual V series improvement next summer you'd be had.

> I think the Slider KRZR whatever its called is the best of the solutions. It has 2.0MP camera WITH LED flash. Either way these are just my opinions with my cellular phone experience.

I'm not that into pictures on my phone. My A670 with VGA and an atrocious blue flash is what I'm using now; I think that says a lot about how much I care about the camera I have in my phone.

And I'm not buying a KRZR......yet. Although I'm hoping Santa comes through with a SK3, even though I've heard that camera isn't that good. But I'm probably not getting a new phone until this spring, and I doubt my parents would pay for a SK, and I know what you're thinking, "The SK3 is sub-par" well I don't care. It's better than what I have now, and if I can manage to get one, then I'll get it, but I probably won't, but there's still hope.

@iMacZealot, The SK3 is what my friends & I that used to work for Tmobile would call "The Ghetto BlackBerry". Its basically what it is. The support for very cool ringtones is what really keeps it going. If you want something more powerful, then I would suggest going for the BlackBerry Pearl 8100. But this coming Spring we'll all see much better phones. I advise towards ANY BB model over any SK. Why? Because its the ONLY phone that you can either UPGRADE/DOWNGRADE the firmware yourself WITHOUT voiding your warranty as its FULLY supported by RIM. Even PocketPCs like the HTC S620 cannot be downgraded after a firmware upgrade!

Um, how about no. The KRZR looks exactly like the LG which was released announced and made available much sooner than the KRZR.

Just because a phone is thin and wide doesn't mean it's a razr rip off. The KRZR ripped off the touch sensing playback buttons among other things.

Jesus dude you need a CHILL pill so just :cool: -OUT, right?

1> I put @ in front of names to say @you as I'm directly speaking to you in response. Just a preference, especially when I'm quoting a few ppl in one post. It certainly helped you didnt it?

2> SK3 is no major difference from the SK2. You still cannot save directly the the SIM card which I think is a GSM phone based sin. For a provider to lock you into purchasing feature or force you to use a webbased interface to archive your contacts to a comma seperated file (excel/vcards) when the function to save to the SIM card is a standard that was stripped is wrong. You have NO idea how many ppl dont use MS Outlook enough to IMPORT that file, and organize those contacts and explain to them out to get it on their NEW phone they've ordered to ship. You're missing the big picture and I was ONLY trying to help. If you didnt want it just say so, but be polite about it.

I had no idea that appleintelrock knew about everything I explained about the W810/K800i. You guys may be masters at Mac's, but I'm pretty pro @ cellular phones. So I know about features, efficiency.

Regarding the SK3, its great about the MicroSD card slot. However have you looked into brands that manufacture the MicroSD card, or even inquired about the SK3's maximum MicroSD ram support? Ppl with the Pearl have a slight issue that I think is Kernel/Firmware limited, not hardware limited. I dont know about the SK3. Another thing you'd probably like to know is that MANY of former Apple coders/engineers (from Apple Corp) are working at Danger Inc. Yeah you probably already know.

Lastly I provided links to substantiate what I was talking about earlier, also to help others in such a fast growing thread.

One last thought. Its gotta make you wonder why someone like EMAGDNIM left the smartphone E61 which has WiFi built-in & the Moto Pebl (fashion phone based on a ROCK, real intelligent design concept, lol), for just the K800?! I have 5 guesses, one of which is those rocking headphones right there. Another is the supreme picture quality. EMAGDNIM, did you start a mobile blog of photos already? If so please post :D

These phones are really cool. I've noticed a distinct clarity in the calls. I can actually understand/hear my eldest daughter when I call her in Michigan..... As you can see we've already found a site with themes. Hmmm, can you guess who's phone is who?????;) BTW, iSynch works like a charm. I haven't done anything with mp3's yet....waiting on the 2gb card I bought off ebay ($43). The radio works, my son tried it and then I called him and the mic etc. worked great. I'm sure that there's a bunch I still need to learn but it'll be fun. Cheers

I have my rinky dink little Nokia 3120. No camera, not even polyphonic ringtones. Perk? AMAZING battery life, i charge it maybe once every week and a half and i have it on constantly. It's really small, too, which is nice :) . I really want a V3i, but i'm waiting until Cingular finally starts carrying it my area before i buy one.

I absolutely agree on the Nokia 3120. I have owned a Treo 650, cingular 8125, XDA o2, etc.. but nothing beats the 3120 (I got it for $30 lol). It just works :D I got sick of all the fancy pda/phones freezing.. especially when i would be on a call with someone!

If I absolutely need email/browsing etc.. i just take my macbook with me. It's annoying to do all that on a phone.

I absolutely agree on the Nokia 3120. I have owned a Treo 650, cingular 8125, XDA o2, etc.. but nothing beats the 3120 (I got it for $30 lol). It just works :D I got sick of all the fancy pda/phones freezing.. especially when i would be on a call with someone!

If I absolutely need email/browsing etc.. i just take my macbook with me. It's annoying to do all that on a phone.


My thoughts EXACTLY. I've begun to withdraw from fancy phone. I've owned every variation of treo and every blackberry since the 7230 (literally) along with the motorola q, and other misc. windows based devices. It's simply too hard and time consuming to surf the web etc. on a phone- even a 500 dollar phone (which ended up being a HUGE piece of crap- the 700p) At any rate, I got the Motorola Krzr and I don't think it's worth the money, So I'm going with the Slvr L6. A simple NON-itunes candy-bar phone with a vga camera and bluetooth. Do you cant to know the best part? It's FREE :D

Finally got my four (4) SE w810i's:) . Wife/youngest daughter/son and me. Here's a pic of three...the last one (daughter's) is still in the box waiting for her to come home and pick it up. These phones are really cool. I've noticed a distinct clarity in the calls. I can actually understand (shortened)................

I'm in the market and considering an L6. These phones look VERY, VERY nice. How do you like them? How's the music player and can you load mp3's from a mac?

These phones are really cool. I've noticed a distinct clarity in the calls. I can actually understand/hear my eldest daughter when I call her in Michigan..... As you can see we've already found a site with themes. Hmmm, can you guess who's phone is who?????;) BTW, iSynch works like a charm. I haven't done anything with mp3's yet....waiting on the 2gb card I bought off ebay ($43). The radio works, my son tried it and then I called him and the mic etc. worked great. I'm sure that there's a bunch I still need to learn but it'll be fun. Cheers

Excellent choice. If you or your wife or kids need themes games or anything hit me up an email.

@appleintelrock, the external speaker is respectable for music playback, not the best on the market but not shameful in the least. Walkman player, remember that because NOTHING on the market that has a phone can play music as clear and perfectly though the FastPort connector (supplied headphones, FM Transmitter, or bedside stand stereo speakers) like the Walkman W810i. NOTHING! Smartphones included even the TyTN. And I'm talking STOCK headphones. Imagine with SHURE headsets.

Nice thing is it comes with 3 different ear canal plugs that are soft rubber. I'm so glad that I bought an extra pair because I'm upgrading to the SE K790 James Bond Edition (collectors piece); but just to use for a short time.

On the fly I can switch to walkman/FM radio, browse through my playlists (even one's I'm not playing music with), even add new tracks from my MSDuo Pro card, and switch to create an SMS, Calendar appointment, heck launch & play a Java game (limitation alert: I can only launch 1 Java app at a time - firmware limitation not hardware/memory limited) while still hearing my track playing. It'll pause my music if I make or accept an incoming call (the alert for incoming accepting also pausing music playback), or a bluetooth file transfer that completed DL'ing; then returns automatically to music. and its elegant. If I'm at anywhere in the menu of my phone, I press the Walkman button and I'm in my track, I browse playlists, adding music, or anything the like and press the walkman button .... BAM! I'm back where I left off in the menu.

zagato27, excellent choice. Now get snapping with those candid photos. Majority of them you'll be presently surprised.;) :D

Question zagato27, in your themes, do you see ones on the phone called Emerge, Equalizer, Orbit, and Walkman? Their animated Flash Lite based themes. Orbit is just incredible! If not then its because the Cingular firmware has stripped them out, dont worry Rogers Wireless here in Canada does the same thing. Still incredible phone for the money. Great style and incredible function.

I'm in the market and considering an L6. These phones look VERY, VERY nice. How do you like them? How's the music player and can you load mp3's from a mac?

I just got back from a trip so I haven't had much time to play with the SE w810i. I have added some themes which was nice. My son has ripped some MP3's to use as ringtones. I've asked him to do some for me too but, as I said I just walked through the door. As to the walkman portion, haven't had the opportunity to use it. I'm waiting for a 2gb card to arrive before I start putting music on the phone. The software that comes with the phone is PC only. However, when you hook up the phone via usb you see two drives. One drive is the memory for the phone and the other is the memory card. I have heard that you just drag your mp3's onto the "drive". One dissappointment, the phones came with only a 128k card. I thought that it would be the 512k :mad:

I can tell you that iSync works great using the BT on my G5. What a time saver to be able to add your entire address book. Oh yes, my son has used the FM feature and we tested what would happen when I called him. FM stops and you answer the call using the built in mic on the headpone cord. BTW, this cord also works as the FM antenna so you must use it when FMing. Lots of stuff to learn. I know that I can add pictures and associate them with names along with special ring tones but I need some time. Initial impressions: these phones are really small, I mean small!. I like the interface. I don't have all the data plans with Cingular....connnect to the net, IM, text msg, streaming etc. I just wanted a good phone, a plus that it comes with a good camera. Again, my son has been burning his up. He and his buddy say that it takes excellent pictures. I'll get around to it. Battery life, I can't say. I was a bit hesitant to turn it on and leave it on this past week as I didn't have a car charger(rectify this tomorrow). Again, screen is excellent. I did buy a leather case off eBay for $10. Clips on the belt. Says that it was made specifically for the w810i but I don't think so. My son says that there are some fabric cases made for a Ninetendo game that are the exact size....JDM only but sold on eBay. Think we'll get one and see which is better...leather or fabric. Will let you know.

Bottom line: I like the phone and the service. Big learning curve for me. I'd recommend them. I bought mine from the Cingular site. They had a deal, I think it was $199 with a $50 instant rebate and then another $50 mail in rebate. Final price $99 after all the rebates. The last rebate comes in the form of $50 credit card...I wish it was a check but I'll think of something. I think my final bill was a bit over $600 for four phones and the family plan.

Sorry bout being so disjointed. i just got home, grabbed some cold pizza and had to reset "parental controls" for my younger son's profile. He's breathing down my neck to get off. He's been without dragon something all week. Gotta run. Cheers

Still haven't had the time to check out the process for MP3's on the w810i. My son and daughter both have uploaded songs using a PC (son) and iBook (daughter). Seems like it was just drag and drop on the Mac. Not quite sure on the PC, I tend to stay away from the "dark side":rolleyes: . Ok, concerning pictures. The camera is a 2.0 mega pixel. I haven't taken any pics yet but my son has....of course. Here's a couple of "macro" examples. My son loves his 92 Acura Legend LS Cpe....he's a high school junior. He's using the Acura symbol as his desktop right now. Looks pretty nice. Here they are.

@zagato27,

If your using the removable Disk Drive for PhoneCard (MSDuo Pro) on your Mac for the W810i.

Drill into the Media Files > MSSEMC > MP3 folder and there just dump MP3's or AAC (non fairplay of course) there. Personally I dont use this method, I use the Disc2Phone software on my PC. Glad to here iCal over BT sync's perfectly.

> Glad you like the 2MP cam on the W810i. I Told ya camera is incredible. ;)

Why do you have your eyes on the E61? Nokia kinda dropped the bar with that one. Don't get me wrong, their multimedia phones are fantastic (N80 etc) however, for a smartphone its very similar to a BlackBerry (feature wise) yet you don't have the stable OS or the fantastic keyboard.

Here's my KRZR. It roacks and it is cool. get one.

Another pearl user, dude, I love mine SOO much. Best smartphone I've ever owned (even better then the 8700 or 8703e)

@appleintelrock,
> When Camera Phones get to 5MP (to the MASS public, not just limited to Korea elites), then we'll see better pics. Furthermore we may even see some hurting brands in the Digital Camera space partner with Cellular Manufacturers (Nokia+Carl Zeiss) for specific models. That is when you must ask yourself ... I really want that 5MP HP Camera, but SE/NOKIA/SAMSUNG/ETC (take you pic; pun intended) also makes a cellular phone with Canon (extensible lens just 3 types) for within $100 more. And I need a new camera. Hmm.
Image quality is not simply based off MP's. My Nikon D2Hs is 4.1 MP and takes better pictures then the majority of DSLRs on the market. However, those images are really nice- coming from a phone.

Note for a mod: Feel free to merge these, My responses were supposed to be in one and that didn't happen. :(

how do you like the keys, i played with one at Compusa...keypad seems to mushy, btw it was a dummy one

I do a lot of typing on my devices so a good keyboard is a must. They keys are very responsive and much better then the ones on the Treo (I have large thumbs by the way.) The suretype keyboard works VERY well, and is nice to use.

Below is an in-depth review I posted on cnet:

I've owned almost every high end smartphone, and this one takes the cake. I've had the Treo (600, 650, 700p&w), BlackBerry 8700c (and 8703e) 7500 series and the 7100 series. I've also owned the motorola q, and about 5 windows mobile based smartphones. This is by far the best smartphone I've EVER used, and definitely the most affordable. For years I'd been in a bind, do I go with the ultra stable BlackBerry OS and forgo the multimedia features and other extras of the other smartphones? Or do I pick a device that does everything under the sun but crashes about twice a week (and has sub-par email support?) As a result of that dilemma, I was back and forth between the treo and blackberry for a long time. I went back and forth between the 8700 and 700 at least three times and finally settled on the 8703e because my treo refused to stop crashing. Then I stumbled across the Pearl. I have to admit, in the store I wasn't too sure wether I'd like it. Size wise it was wonderful, this phone is actually thinner then the Razr when shut. My problem however, lied in the sure type keypad. While it offered the familiar qwerty layout I wasn't sure about having two letters per key. I was wrong. I'd say 299/300 words are guessed perfectly and typing on it is very easy. All in all the is an incredibly thin, small, stable, feature-packed smartphone with a brilliant screen.
Nice Job RIM!

AppleIntelRock,

Nice selection on the Pearl. Here's a nice trick you can do. From the main screen hold down the ALT key and quickly type LGLG. You'll get a screen - which you can back out of simply - that'll display EVERY and I mean EVERY action you've done - save the ALT LGLG - that you clicked, selected, or the phone looking or receiving messages in Java security code. I dont own one just yet but trying to figure this out in detail.

Are you on BES server? If so is the BES 4.0/4.1?! Also are you able to take cam photos from the Pearl and send via email attachments?! This is seperate from the TMobile BIS online service. Many ppl on BES servers 4.0 even with HotFix 5 cannot send Pearl camera attachments.

That is a great phone. I used to have the S700i (UK version) which was in silver and not as cool as the black. After a year I sold it and got a PDA phone but that only lasted a week until I got so annoyed with Windows Mobile that I got another S700i off eBay. I just replaced the S700 with the K610i whih has some very cool featuers but is a bit smaller than the S700. You can get some funny looks if you carry the S700i around with you in your pocket, especially if your trousers are just that little bit too tight!!

One quick question though. On the inside of the earpiece, does your x820 have what looks like dust or fuzz or hairs inside, kinda like strands of cotton? At first I thought mines was filled with dust, but its impossible to get rid of it, so I assume its part of the phone?

How about the multimedia functions though? I read that the music player interface wasn't that good. I would only replace my SonyEricsson with a phone that had a better music player (c'mon Apple iPhone!!!), but I'm curious to see what else is out there. Someone showed me their SE W850i and it looked very impressive: large screen slider phone with 4GB included, memory stick slot if that's not enough, and stereo bluetooth.

Yup the screen is amazing ,dont know bout the camera though I´m not too impressed with it but the size makes me forget about everything else.

Ya, that and unlimited data and javascript web surfing. He's got a point appleintelrock, all that for 20$ US on top of his regular voice plan. Looks like quality is right up there. I'm a little miffed because I wanted to play with the SK3 first hand here in Canada but Fido has recently pulled the data plan (not sure if big brother Rogers forced it off, or if Fido marketing team was just too complacent and duped into thinking the device itself will sell on its own. In a market that doesnt follow stars as closely as the US does).

appleintelrock, I wanted to know does the Pearl's ball soft touch or is it hard like a marble ball (Jacks)? Also does the light strobe at all or can it be set to do so like the SK3? If not I'm hoping a simple mod can be done to do so. I'm getting a Pearl within 4 weeks. But the data charges are gonna rip-me-a-new-one OUCH!

Now with Danger services no longer offered, Fido is content to wait till all existing SK2 users devices end of warranty and grandfather their data plan & APN until they force them off or get sick of issues on the hardware. I'm hoping Danger Inc can assist with marketing and make a deal that Rogers/Fido can accept to launch the SK3 here. I dont badly want a SK3 but data competition is seriously needed in this market! IF not then we'll all have lint in our pockets with PPC-PE's & BB's & SYmbian OS E62's soaking up the dow!

Well, the Blackberry plans on T-Mobile at least come with unlimited e-mail and web, but no instant, text, or photo messages.

I've also heard that if your Pearl rings, if the trackball moves the slightest in your pocket, it'll silence the ringer.

You know, I'd like to apologize about my behavior. I got into a really bad mood yesterday. I hope you accept. I think the Pearl is a great phone. Hell, my dad's probably going to get one tomorrow.

Speaking of which, my Samsung A670 snapped in half. :( Looks like another carrier bites the dust. I also don't trust Samsung anymore, as any Samsung our family's bought has had severe issues. My brother's and his girlfriend's A670s both snapped in half (but four months before mine did), my sister's A460 wouldn't make calls in our house, my other sister's VGA1000 had an atrocious paint job, my mom's A740 don't answer calls but delivers the voicemail....four hours later, and my brother's new A850 is falling apart as well! I hardly use my phone, and it breaking is totally inexccusable. I've crossed the t629 off my wish list!

I think what's going to happen is my mom's going to get me a Sidekick for Christmas, and in the meantime, I'm going to use our spare Samsung A840 on Sprint.

I bought a Motorola V500 in January and then replaced that shortly with a LGU880, i then replaced that with a Nokia N91. I then downgraded and replaced my Nokia N91 with a Motorola V635 but i only had that for a short while as i could not do without 3G where i live. I now own a Nokia 7390 as pictured below.
It was a bit of a toss up for me when i was ordering as i never knew what colour to go with but i decided to go with the powder pink/cream one in the end and i am glad that i did now. I am not on any contracts so i buy my own phones when i need to.

Don't get me wrong its a decent phone but the battery life is abysmal. This is the price to pay for the supposed "slimming". If only i wasn't locked down by software i've bought for the palm OS. Still a good phone though but could be better.

Considered getting a SE P990 but i hear thats full of bugs, which seems to be a recurring thing for symbian phones. Blackberry doesn't seem to have any software written for it besides the J2ME OS. Windows mobile cant edit office documents. So palm is the logical choice given my needs

You need to do more research.
a couple of sites.
Windows Mobile based
Modaco.com, MSMOBILES.com, HowardForums.com Smartphone/PDA Section for all the smartphone devices.

Symbian you have QuickOffice for editing documents including powerpoint > for UIQ based (SE p900/910/990) or S60 based. S60 based phones are NOT that buggy. Lookup the Nokia E61 (not the E62 that Cingular has) which also has WiFi b/g. Very Stable!

Windows Mobile Smartphone have optional applications for editing MS office documents just like Palm can. So have a look around ask questions > I'm sure those offerings will allow more choice and variable forms/shapes of devices. Lastly, there are quite of few applications written in Java for the BB devices; besides the core OS. ;) its not the corporate darling for no reason. Research around and dig deep I'm sure you'll find a healthy alternative to your Palm Treo 680 but if you're happy with it thas fine too.

I got the traditional silver and black one. The black one was designed by Diane Von Furstenburg and has pink lips all over it.

You don't understand what I'm trying to do. What I'm trying to do is to be able to check my mac.com mail ON my sidekick.

Ahh I see. Hmm. Can the .Mac email account be setup for forwarding or accessing as a POP3/IMAP4 setup?

SK II was capable of accessing such so I'm hoping you can on the SK3. You may not need the smtp address unless Danger, Inc servers cannot auto find & setup for it. Hoping you get some success. Pink lips on teh Dian Von Furstenburg (whomever that is) is atrocious. I gotta find a way to get a paygo to use here for the daughter unless continuous usuage over the border is restricted like I've read.

@Felldownthewell,

Excellent choice! However when the SGH-i600 comes out in a few months you'll be urked to find it has everything BlackJack has with HSDPA along with WiFi. Not too sure on the UMTS bands though. I almost bought the TMobile DASH/HTC H620 but I'm waiting for the HTC H650/Cavalier to debut.

Nah, those two pictures with gazillions of cell phones in it are gone, I sold them all on ebay and use the money for my ipod :D :D

I had MDA but it didn't sync with my PB, don't know why, so I traded it in for two RAZRs. I used the black ones for special ocassions only, the silver ones is a little beat up. Thinking to get a Treo 650 but I don't know if it will integrates with my mac or my other alternative is V3i. How do you type on Pearl? it seems complicated to me

Very easy to type on the Pearl, I adjusted quickly. The Pearl has what they call SureType (it's like T9 if you've ever used it on other phones). You hit the key once, and SureType guesses which of the 2 letters you wanted, and it's very accurate. If it's wrong, go back and change it, but that doesn't happen often. Or, you could disable SureType and use MultiTap, which is how typing on a traditional cell works, hit the button once for the letter on the left, twice for the letter on the right.

verizon xv6700, yes it has wi-fi and it is fairly quick as long as the site isn't bombarded with large images. i got it for around 200 on ebay.

Does Verizon require you to have a data plan to use the xv6700, or can you have a regular phone plan?

You can go on the Pay-As-You-Go data plan ($0.015/KB), or the $24.99 10MB plan (that's worthless), or the $44.99 "Unlimited" data plan. You can also block all data and use everything except data and picture messaging.

I was thinking about getting this phone, and I would only use the Wifi for internet, so that's cool that you can just block everything. I would guess that the $0.015/KB adds up pretty quickly just browsing the internet.

Yep, WiFi would be the way to go. Word of warning: if you picture message and you don't block data, it will use data and airtime. So the average 250KB picture would be $3.75.

And 1MB of Data with PAYG= $15.

Have the same phone and love it. So hackable, so fun. Though I haven't yet prioritized doing the whole SEEM OBEX thing on Windows, there's a bunch of tricks this phone can do regardless (especially if you have any size transflash card) - Wikipedia even has a page about it.

I'm using the Plantronics 320 BT headset - it's OK, not the greatest but gets the job done for not too much money.

Trust me, if T-Mobile offered a little better reception in my area and our contract with Verizon was up, I'd jump on the Sidekick or the Pearl. I love me some mobile web goodness. Along with e-mail.

It was so nice having it yesterday when my internet was down! My sister iss so jealous of it!

I bet it turned heads. If I had the money, I would probably get the Sidekick 3 PrePaid to see what kind of signal I'd get.

What kind of business do you run?

I bet your sister was envious. I have Mobile Web (Not VZW) and I love having it with me. I'm an e-mail-holic. If I had a BlackBerry and could use it during school, I would not learn anything at all.

And you are lucky you have a tower across the street. I'm lucky I have Verizon reception at all.

Mall test? Head turner? It isn't as if the Sidekick 3 is the pinnacle of high-end cellular technology. Possibly you had something in your teeth and that's why you were turning heads? Now, if that same post were made in regards to the much rumored iPhone- I could possibly understand it. However as it stands, I'm slightly perplexed.

Sure, the Sidekick 3 isn't the most feature-licious (that's right, featurelicious) phone out there, but it does what I want it to do. Plus, I doubt the preteens in the mall care if I can tether it or get 10 push e-mail accounts on it. The screen is probably the main headturner.

And I don't have buck teeth that I stick out all the time, nor do I constantly eat salads with them!!!

I was tired of waiting for the iPhone and my Verizon phone broke (about two months ago) and I dug out a Sprint phone my mom bought a while ago, and it was so poorly made. The battery would fall out randomly, even if it was properly snapped on.

I know you like the Pearl, but I just couldn't stand that keyboard. And while my SK has a lower res screen, at least it's bigger, so I have more screen space to do what I want to do.

The Sidekick just does what I want it to do. It just works. Who cares if I can't tether it? Who cares if I can't get 10 corporate push e-mail accounts on it? I just have my mac.com address. Sure, the camera isn't great, but I didn't expect it to replace my digital camera. I can easily text message or shoot off a quick e-mail on the spacious, full QWERTY keyboard. The web browser is also pretty fast. And I don't find it uncomfortable to use as a phone. It just works.

@zflauaus:

I am currently developing video diaries for various record labels.

You can check your coverage at T-Mobile.com, and if you are crunched for money, you can easily find a Sidekick II on eBay, ofentimes under $100. It'd be well worth it.

My sister doesn't think I need one, but she keeps playing with it. :) I think she's jealous, even though she pretends to hate it.

Not neccesarily true about no IM in the $20 Blackberry plan with T-Mo...

The instant messenger program that comes installed on T-Mo Pearls does use SMS to send and receive IMs, which adds up pretty quickly. However, there are 3rd party IM clients for BlackBerries out there that use data instead of SMS and cost nothing, assuming you have the unlimited data plan. I use Yak-On (http://yak-on.com/) on my Pearl and it's great. It supports AIM, MSN and ICQ

You know, I'd like to apologize about my behavior. I got into a really bad mood yesterday. I hope you accept. I think the Pearl is a great phone. Hell, my dad's probably going to get one tomorrow.

Speaking of which, my Samsung A670 snapped in half. :( Looks like another carrier bites the dust. I also don't trust Samsung anymore, as any Samsung our family's bought has had severe issues. My brother's and his girlfriend's A670s both snapped in half (but four months before mine did), my sister's A460 wouldn't make calls in our house, my other sister's VGA1000 had an atrocious paint job, my mom's A740 don't answer calls but delivers the voicemail....four hours later, and my brother's new A850 is falling apart as well! I hardly use my phone, and it breaking is totally inexccusable. I've crossed the t629 off my wish list!

I think what's going to happen is my mom's going to get me a Sidekick for Christmas, and in the meantime, I'm going to use our spare Samsung A840 on Sprint.

Your not the only one with Samsung issues. My E700 and D500 have both got blanked screens. Whenever I turn them on the LED comes on but the screen stays blank. Im now forced to use my 6230 but oh well.

Late in the game? Well I didn't get it when it first came out but I've had it since beginning of October. I've managed to keep it in pristine condition thanks to BestSkinsEver invisible skin. It is unlocked also so I'll be able to get most, if not more than what I paid for when I get the 8900.

All the accessories I got were free and I've sold the ones I don't use and have already made back the cost of the Pearl. :)
