Yay, new phone.

T-Mobile ToGo! So uh, yeah. Dunno, phone number _should_ be ported over from Nextel in a few hours, so another post (or a modification to this one) should happen sooner or later.

I have a camera phone now. Samsung t319... o.O

[Append: 1-08-2007, 15:44] Yep, old cellphone number transfered over to the new phone. So uh, yeah, flawless upgrade from the evil that is Sprint/Nextel and the rapage of 2-year contracts and $200 early termination fees.

Still have to manually move all the numbers from the old cellphone to the new one. But that can wait a bit.

Mmmm, my Motorola i560 only functions as a GPS device now. Yay? Need to figure out how to connect it to the iBook for GPS Warwalking.

My 'review' of the t-319:
Menu options are much less complex than the i560. However, there are a lot less options. As in, there's no way to configure the software-based keys (the ones whose functions change depending on what you're looking at) next to the arrows. Actually, there's no way to configure what the arrow keys do either. (on the i560, you can set them to do specific menu options from the main screen) And there's no way to turn off the goddamn annoying camera "shutter-click" sound. Why, Samsung, WHY? Now I can't secretly take picture of people. Oh, and volume/silence in general is an issue. There is a silent mode, but that can't be triggered with the volume keys outside - you have to use the menu or hold the # key for about 2 seconds. And silent mode doesn't apply to the camera. :P Lastly, the hang-up key is combined with the power key. So if you hold the hang-up key for a bit too long, the phone shuts down. XP

Other than that, it supports IM (AIM, ICQ, Yahoo), which rocks, as well better support for images and stuff. There's a working calendar that doesn't run on some slow java-based app, which is good. Alarm, calculator, unit conversion, todo list, time. All in all, good, comfortable design; I agree with the 4.5/5 rating on most places.
