No MPX220 on Phonescoop?

The info is out there, Brighthand and a few others have reported it and Motorola finally acknowledged it. I'm shocked that Phonescoop doesn't have it on the site yet. Surprised

Pre-Paid Camera Phones

Hi Very Happy ,
I'm just wondering if they are any pre-paid camera phones around. To me Virgin Mobile has the best selection pre-paid of phones, and I currently have the Audiovox 8610, but I want a camera phone, I just don't won't to go through the struggle of getting a plan using credit, because I don't use my phone that much anyway. I live in South Florida, and I would be very happy If someone could tell me of any carriers that have pre-paid services that carry camera phones.

Email fixed

There were some issues with email from the server over the last few days. Some registration emails, forum alerts, feedback to me, etc. might not have been sent.

It's fixed now.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

NEW: Print & Email links

New feature on the site: "Print" and "Email" links for most pages throughout the site. They're located on the left, and also on the front page, for each news item.

"Email" works for almost all pages. Share the love - tell your friends about Phone Scoop! Wink

"Print" only appears on specific pages where I thought it made sense. And for each type of page you can print, I've tweaked the content so you only get the parts that make sense to print, and tweaked the layout to better fit a letter-size page.

Give both features a whirl, and let me know what you think! Smile

New Server!

I just finished moving to a new server setup. In fact, it's a set of six shiny new servers! Shocked Very Happy

It may not look much different, but there have been some pretty dramatic changes behind the scenes.

So if you spot any problem or glitches, please let me know immediately! Don't assume I know about it.

Thanks! Smile

Request for User Review Guideline

When a phone is offered by multiple carriers, it often differs from carrier to carrier, sometimes markedly; yet they are lumped together for users to review. I'm suggesting including a reviewer guideline that will ask the writer to specify the carrier when reviewing a phone sold by more than one U.S. company. As an example, the earpiece volume levels on the Nokia 6200 (Cingular) are too low; the volume levels on the 6200 (AT&T Wireless) are exceptionally good. This might help distinguish the differences and give the reader more accurate information.

An Idea for the forums

I had the idea that perhaps its time that a forum is created for reps. I have noticed over the last 6 month's that it seems to be very rare that an actual wireless customer asks a question in the forums anymore. At least in the AWS forum this sems to be the case. All it seems to be is either reps having a collective B!^#$ session or reps asking questions to each other, perhaps its time we set aside a section for this. Maybe everyoe else likes it the way it is and that's fine too but it just seems like the whole purpose of the forums has changed and it might be nice to have a little of that back.

Need phone that will sync well to Outlook....

I've been using the old StarTac with a ClipOn organizer and love it. I can sync all the information from Outlook, including that note section in contacts, and dial right from the Organizer.

So, I need a new phone and it looks like maybe the V600 or the MPX200 or something like that. I don't want a huge PDA phone.

What phone out there will sync really well to Outlook? Motorola gives me conflicting information. I really need the 'notes' section of my 'contacts' to come over.

Thanks for any help.

just out of curiosity

What are some of the new things you are going to add to this site that are "higher" on your to do list? A new look to it? More features?...I'm just wonderin, cuz I come to this site all the time.

Maybe you could personalize it and have different templates and backrounds! That would be cool.

phone search - can you return more than 20 results?

I really appreciate how comprehensive this site is, so many thanks for that.

I am doing some research and would like to find all handsets that support mono/polyphonic ringtones but find that my search results with that criteria only return 20 results. Is it possible to get the full list?

Server Speed

Sorry for the site being so sluggish today. We've been Slashdotted Surprised, although speed hasn't been all that great lately anyway.

Rest assured I am working on a number of things to remedy the situation.

To Rich:

Heya Richy, I just felt the urge to give a warm hearted, and much needed thanks for the website. You don't know HOW much AWS Care reps I see around me use instead of their internal database to find information due to its convenience (and availability for pictures ALONG with reviews and what phones offer!). Although this is far from official, just a little lowly rep giving a kudos, I hope it means something! Very Happy

NEW forum feature: Preview

There's now a "Preview" button when you post messages. This is so you can make sure quoting, HTML, links, line breaks, etc. will display the way you expect.

This isn't a huge new feature, but hopefully it will come in handy once in a while. Smile

Oh, and I also fixed it so that it won't send you a notification e-mail if you reply to yourself. Wink

Daylight Savings Time

It's that time of year again, and unfortunately, I still haven't gotten around to making the site smart about daylight savings time. Embarassed

It's easy to fix, though - just log in, go to "Your Account", and update your time setting at the bottom. Sorry for the hassle!
