My son has made sure that both of us have upgraded our phones so that we have what is out there with the features we want. We like technology very much but it sure does change FAST!!!

as far as i know, its only dumb channels like: fox sports, cnn, weather, disney, etc...

but the coolness factor did go up, and if they ever get anymore channels, sweet

Never miss the breaking news from CNN or the latest sports scores from Fox Sports with the MM-A700'* streaming video capabilities.
Still, sounds kinda like MobileWeb, but with streaming video. Major plus on the coolness factor, but kinda scarey when you add on the potential Moron Factor...

I like the fact the phones are finally coming in some other color that that plasticy looking silver. My VX7000 has a black satin panel on the cover (the rest is that plastic silver color)

And I know what you mean about the speakerphone. I kinda miss that feature. But the camera and MP3 ringtones are more than enough fun to make up for that...

I have a sprint phone also. I think that TV thing is a service, not a feature of the phone itself, and that its like streaming media rather than live.

I agree that stuff is an accident waiting to happen. Too many people with their minds on anything but the road as it is.
