    This is a pretty sticky one since (as someone already mentioned) the reps you call to can only turn web access on or off. That means your web works or it doesn't. They don't have a big list of sites...

    And the answer of 'check with your provider' has been in this thread multiple times so had he done so, he would know already.

    Sure, you can do lots of things to your phone to make it work...

    He's exaggerating of course but North America is the main place they even offer discounts on hardware. Most other places do not offer this and it's because of that that everybody and their dog can...

    That's pretty much it. Do you think telcos would even offer contracts if it wasn't for everyone taking advantage of them to get those discounts? It's kinda like the Maple Leafs raising their ticket...

    lol, that's pretty much it. People overbuy because they can ad then complain when it doesn't work for them. It's too bad everyone expects subsidies now since it isn't a practice in the rest of the...

    Why would you sign a contract if you aren't getting a discount?

    In some cases, you'll get a bill credit or you may get discounted features for signing a contract instead of having the hardware...

    Anything you get that is fishy, look up the number in google. You can bet others have gotten calls too if it's a telemarketer and they may have already found a solution to stop the spam. I've found...

    The new internet keys are fast, but only when you have pretty good signal. That's not to say they're horrible otherwise but for anything needing speed you don't want to be in an area running 1-2...

    It could be something not support on HSPA that was supported for them on GSM. I know TELUS' older network doesn't transmit the name.

    Consider how much data your PC would use doing the same things. That is a full browser with no compression at all. The new phones with good HTML browsers like the iPhone don't compress data either,...

    Good answer, there have been plenty of threads on the batteries of the X10 but nothing for the charging shutoff I've seen. Makes sense.

    The full battery discharge/recharge cycle does improve the...

    That background traffic you're seeing is like the background traffic you see on a BB - it isn't using much data. The difference your seeing is that the BB browser provides the most data compession of...

    That's how caller ID works. For landlines, you can receive name info as well as numbers in your caller ID but cellular only receives the number. It doesn't transmit the name info over cellular, it...

    I'm curious to see how it went since it's been a recommendation on a number of sites to discharge/recharge the phone several times to maximize battery life. That and if you can't get to a charger...

    Anything that I've seen that improved battery life has been to fully discharge/recharge the battery several times when you first get the phone. That helps because the battery thinks full charge is...

    Some people who use BBs are fairly savvy, so I wouldn't put you in that category. Others have done little more than calls and texting, maybe BBM and email (only if the dealer helped them set it up,...

    I agree, I'd like to see a little more hands on instead of just going back and forth between the Timescape and Mediascape. It looks to be great so far though.
