RingPlus To Offer Free Phone Service
RingPlus today announced a new mobile phone service plan that is ad-supported, but completely free to the customer. The ads take the form of ringback tones, which RingPlus customers hear on outbound voice calls, after dialing but before the other party picks up.

First CDMA bluetooth phone in NA? What about Timeport 270c?
What about the Motorola TimePort 270c? It had bluetooth and was CDMA.
Battery Life Just isn't there
I went to work Monday and left it in my pocket. I used it a little bit and the battery died around 2:00pm. It only lasted 6.5 hours
Tuesday I didn't use it at all and it still died before I got out of work. I thought it had a standby time of several days?? How can I use it if it dies before I get out of an 8 hour work day??
As with any phone, make sure you do full charge cycles the first 2-3 times. Charge it all the way, then let it drain all the way before charging again, then repeat. After doing that three times, you ...
Has anybody used the MCA-25 CommuniCam with this? Mine isn't displaying any picture in the phone viewfinder. NOt taking pictures, either. Anybody else got this part to work yet?
Also, any other Mac users have tips & tricks for syncing with iCal & Address Book? I thought it was working okay then got an error message saying I was unsuccessful.
Thanks in advance.

3 Meg !! What The*******
It was a piece of ****. It neither made a decent PDA nor a decent Phone. Being strictly digital it dropped 60% of my calls. As far as Internet Access on my bank accounts...it seems Pocket PC 2002 does not have the encryption nor a current enough browser for my bank to allow me onto my accounts... security and all that. As far as the Pocket PC goes it was not upgradable and frankly gave me headaches holding it against my head and trying to drive.
So I returned it and asked for ...
It seems to work well, but I'm very disappointed in the quality of the manual. There are supposed "features", like functioning as a speaker phone, which I can't figure out how to activate. Other standard features (like call waiting) have a preference that appears to need to activated, but there is no documentation as to how to enable.
I've searched both the Sprint and Sony Ericsson sites, and all they have is a PDF version of the printed manual.
Does anyone know where a full manual is? Or does anyone know what I'm missing on activating these features?
To activate the speakerphone, while placing a call press the preference button (just above the 1) you will see speakerphone as item 1.
