that's a good clear shot, isn't it? I had 3 Nokias - they were all the old style, but only had to replace them as they drowned in rainstorms on Blaven and Ben Nevis!!

As my last 3-4 phones were all Sony Ericssons, the controls will take a bit of getting used to.

Photo is far cleared, and the installation far crisper. I was lucky that one of my neighbours took the parcel in, so I didn't have to fight through the traffic to collect it on Saturday.

As a comparison, on Day 1 of the SE c902, it took me to about 11pm get to the stage that I could install contacts over from MS Outlook. With the Nokia, I'd that done in the first hour, and then proceeded to copy over old photos, sounds, and now applications.

Currently having a text-chat with Darren, and every other word is SHOUTED as the spacebar and capslock are on opposing keys from the SE keyboard.

Great pic from a phone!

I don't know how you can get your head round all that complicated mobile phone stuff. I can barely even remember how to switch mine on :)

Peewiglet you reminded me of a very silly quote from the old tv detective show 'Moonlighting' (which got utterly rubbish by the end btw) where Bruce Willis is satirising his own character David - 'Dumb David, can't even walk and chew gum at the same time!' now really, gal, you aren't that bad surely? Mind you I have a friend who works for the oil company also known as Snickers and though she is a software developer, she NEVER EVER answers her mobile texts! Hmm!

It's a Friday night, and I'm playing with my new mobile phone ... it is nothing for me to be proud of :(

Story Quine--Moonlight is one of my all1-time favourite television programmes! I agree that it went down the tubes towards the end, though. Once they bonked all the sexual tension was gone. Must be a moral in there somewhere... *g*

I love technology, but somehow I'm hopeless with mobile phones. I've got one here on my desk--a work phone--that I've never been able to get to grips with. I managed to set it up for email etc, but it's the least intuitive bit of kit I've ever tried to use! It's a Nokia N73, btw. I just stick with my own little Nokia something or other. See, I was going to tell you what model it is but I can't get the back off *g*

Um... make that 'Moonlighting' and 'all-time'. Not sure what's up with the crubeens this morning...

"Moonlighting" was a strangely mature comedy. A surprise that it was commissioned at all.

As to phones - there's nothing wrong with merely using them as phones. If you want to do something else with it, spend an evening getting that sussed rather than jumping in and getting frustrated. Like climbing a hill, you break it down into smaller sections.
