Need help with a rumor


Mar 16, 2008, 11:50 AM
I bought two Rumor's yesterday for my wife and I. I told the sprint rep that I need to use mine for work. I travel residentially and need access to Mapquest or a Nav system. Nav isn't neccessary, I can do what I need to do with a map such as mapquest. I also need to get emails and access the internet and view websites. My wife uses texting features a lot, emails a lot, and calls a lot, but doesn't really use the internet other than for email. He suggested the rumor and the everything plan. Now, I'm home working with the phones and reading the phone scoop review and having some difficulty.
1) sucks that I can't use an MP3 as a ring tone, but not a deal breaker.
2) When I go to a website like youtube it says not enough memory. Huh?
3) ...

2) The Rumor is not fit for video, therefore you can't watch Utube videos or any other videos.
3) This is not a power vision phone, so you will only have the regular vision, which is much slower.
4) There is a program you can download called Opera Mini 4.0, however it has not been developed for the Rumor and probably won't be available.

If viewing a full website, seeing Utube videos and slow internet are a problem, you had better take those phones back and exchange them for Palm Centro's or something similar, since sprint doesn't carry another non-pda phone with a full qwerty keyboard.

I had heard that the palm had additional charges over and above sprints charges. Do you know if that is the case?
