Cingular 8125 issues

Hey everyone

I own the Cingular 8125 and am havign a few issues I would like to get resolved.

First of all, I used to be able to receive MMS messages and view the pictures/sound clips in them, but now when I receive an MMS and try to download it I get the message saying:

"Unable to receive your message(s). Your message(s) notifications will remain in the inbox."

Also, I purchased a 2GB memory card and when I first inserted it, it was working fine. I think after I took it out once or I restarted the phone it says "Not installed".

Any help?

Calendar entries from Webex service

I have a Samsung BlackJack.
When I setup a webex meeting, webex emails me an .ics file that is the calendar entry for the meeting. It shows up in my email, has an calendar icon, but I can't open it and add it to my calendar.

Anybody have any ideas?

BlackJack is my primary outlook client. I do not use Outlook on a desktop, but Outlook Web Access, so I don't have a regular client I can open it with and then sync.

Thanks in advance fo any help!

Vista and Windows Mobile incompatibility

Last night I found out that WM5 is not compatible with Vista. Personally, I think that's BS, so does anyone know anything more on the topic, cause its been over two weeks since I last synced (I'm nervous about losing data) and cx's are asking?

I also posted this thread in the Data forum cause I'm desperate for answers.

Verizon 650 to 700WX?

I currently have the 650 and it has been acting a bit crazy for the last couple months. I am eligible for an upgrade but am unsure of what to do. I hear the 700WX is the way to go but I wonder if there is anyone out there who has one already that can answer a couple Q's for me? Here we go...

1) Have they improved the bluetooth at all on this model? Is there still a 3 second delay for call transfer unless you use the "wakeup" feature on your earpiece?
2) I obviously am using the Palm OS right now, is the OS in this model stable? What are the major differences from Palm to Windows on this model?
3) I am a mortgage professional and I use software on my phone right now that serves as a loan tracker and calculator, is there a version for win...

Just got my Treo 700w, and I have one major dissapointment

I spent close to an hour tonight at the Verizon Wireless store comparing the Treo 700w to the Verizon XV6700. Even though I preferred the form factor of the 6700 over the Treo, I went with the Treo 700 for one major reason, the 6700 suffered from a creamy/yellowish tint to all of its white colors, a problem I experienced with its predecessor, the Audiovox 6600, which led me to return that device.

The Treo 700 by comparison had clean and crisp whites that had less if any yellowish/creamy tint.

Except when I opened *my* Treo 700, the one I bought, it had yellowish tints to all its whites that were equal if not worse than the store's 6700 demo unit.

So this leads me to ask, what in the &%$* is the problem with these devices. Why are th...

Will Outlook 2007 sync with Windows Mobile 5?

I'm now using Active Sync 4.2 to sync Outlook 2003 with my Cingular 3125 running Windows Mobile 5. It's working well, although I hate - make that HATE - Outlook after using Palm software. I'm very happy with the 3125 though.

I'm hoping that Outlook 2007 will be a better product than the 2003 version. Has anyone heard whether Microsoft plans to upgrade Active Sync 4.2 to sync Outlook 2007 with Windows Mobile 5? I will feel totally screwed if they don't!

Thanks for any feedback.
