Default New toy...

Got one of these...
Mint Chocolate
Couple weird design features, but overall a pretty nice piece of electronics.

The controls are sensitive, but so far that'* the only complaint I have. My new headset, however, will NOT go into pairing mode. Going back tomorrow to get a different on.

My best friend has the black one, he likes it but isn't to happy with no speaker phone. I played with it one day and the controls are a tad sensitive for me.

There'* a place in the phone settings where you can adjust the sensitvity of the touch pad.

There'* a firmware upgrade for a speakerphone I believe. A verizon store should do it for him for free, but call and make sure I'm not full of **** first.

I'm getting the VX8600 next month. It'* the chocolate but in clamshell (flip phone) form pretty much.

the next phone I buy will need at least 8gigs of flash memory, digital video camera, usb/firewire connections, oh yeah and a better speaker phone, large screen, and a months worth of battery life. oh yeah and it must have broadband internet with a acess point built in.


I may be with my moto for a while it seems.

Not gonna do it, wouldn't be prudent...
I'm sick of black white or silver, and my bro is getting the red one, so unless I want the pink one that'* coming...
Besides, I like the green.

Interesting problem though, the headset I bought with it simply will NOT go into pairing mode, and the software for the computer won't find the phone when it'* tethered. Windows will find it, but not the Verizon software. I'll takeit in next weekend and tell the service people to make it work...in the meantime, I can still pop the card in the computer and transfer music that way.
