I'm considering buying a 9550 or 8910 with Sprint's service. I do not intend to pay extra for the vision service or anything else if possible.

With a data cable, can one:
1. synchronize contacts
2. download ringtones
3. download pictures/video

...or can one do any of the above without paying extra for vision?

Is it possible to customize the graphics in the menu or LCD screen in front? For example, I noticed the picture of the 8910 has an analog looking clock. Can that be done with the 9550?

You can customize yourself on both. However, to avoid web charges, you would have to connect the phone via cable to your PC, and use or make you stuff. Without Vision, even if you go to a freesite, you have to connect to the web and go to the sites website via Vision on the phone. You would may for access charges which is .01 cents/kb. For each page that loads up on the phone, and to download the file...whatever the page sizes and download size...#kb X .01 cents.

I also wanted to mention that Audiovox phones are pretty reliable phones. Very few phones come back w/warranty issues.

OK, I'm planning on buying a phone through Amazon (they've got an $80 rebate offer on it good through tomorrow), but who sells the data cable? I haven't found it anywhere on-line. I've found cables for other Audiovox models, but searches for both "Audiovox 9550" and "Toshiba VM4050" have been futile.

I'm not looking forward to entering 200 phone numbers, and I don't want to upload all my contacts through Sprint's website with 'vision', though I'll have no choice otherwise.
