Default My Bonneville Club-themed cell phone

I have a really terrible cell phone. It'* a few years old. When my friend James offered to sell me a Treo 755P for $75, I became very interested. I checked, and my local Sprint store sells these for $589.99. I picked it up for free to see if I could get it to work.

When I took it to the store, they said the phone had been reported "Lost or Stolen." They promised to call me back in a couple of days to see if they could activate it for me, though. I never got this call. James said he got the phone from a friend and will check with the guy why this phone was reported lost/stolen. I suspect insurance fraud. Until we can find out who originally had this phone, I have it.

I've changed the preferences to make it use a similar color scheme to this forum. Also, as you can see in this picture, it'* that color on the exterior! So, that'* my BC-themed cell phone. I hope to get this sorted out (read: activated). I can for now, though, at least film some videos of my car and throw them onto my PCs with the miniSD card. That'* pretty good.

Cell phones are cool. Shameless plug time: I'm working on starting a new phone company with land/cell lines. There. Also, the phone is probably some insurance fraud. If so, I should be able to hang on to it.

It'* surprisingly easy to type with that keypad! Who knew? There'* a stylus with its own hole in the back of the phone.

i just chose an HTC mogul over a blackberry. yeah, it runs windows mobile which isnt the greatest as far as performance but you cant beat it for customization and 3rd party apps.
