Default ARGH!

New Cellphone. Why can't they make these stupid things cross-compatible? I have to re-program all my contacts, and record voice commands for dialing ALL of them. Over 100.

Gonna be a LONG night.

If its with the same service and number and everything you should be able to just take the sim chip out of your old phone and put it in the new one and it should have all of your settings....I would guess that the voice stuff wouldn't work right though due to differences in microphones, etc....

Half my voice numbers won't dial with my non-slurred speech tomorrow.

Spend the money on the software. Won't help with the voice, but you should be able to download your old phone into the computer and upload it to the new phone.

Wish I remembered what software I have. But I don't have enough contacts for it to be useful....

What model Motorola? If there is no SIM, you must have Verizon or some other CDMA carrier. Perhaps I can get you at least the software for the newer phones. You will just have to aquire a cable.
