How do I load pictures or MP3 sounds

I searched the forum first and saw that someone else had also asked the question about loading pictures.

I haven't been able to find how to load pictures. (Hoping that pictures will give me a clue when scrolling down to call someone . . . the display type font is very small for my 30 year old eyes)

Also would like to load some ring tone songs. Haven't been able to find that either.

Plug into my computer's USB and the phone is recognized, but wants software to communicate.

What am I missing.

Not a fan

I am very intrigued by Nextel and have considered getting service with them a few times now, but I can not force myself to carry around a big ugly phone. These phones make me want to throw up. I can understand that Nextel provides good service, but I guess I am just too shallow for their phones. I mean come on. At least make it bluetooth so I can hide it in my pocket!

Porting oddities/No WLK-TLK

I just ported my number over from Helio to Sprint/Nextel and got a ic502. Well, the customer rep said it might take like 2 days for the port to completly go through. Anyone else had this problem?

Also, with a new service, did anyone else see the No WLK-TLK message in the corner?

Question for anybody in Balto-Was. DC area

I used to have Nextel and switched to Cingular because I had a lot of dropped calls. Can anyone in the Balto-Was (mainly Balto.) area give some insight on how this hybrid service compares to Nextel only service? Thanks.

Q on additional fees?

I started out with Sprint back in 99' then I got this wild hair and decided to goto Nextell as my in-laws live in Tijuana, Mx. and the PTT gave us a great way to communicate without the long distance phone bill. Well, for a little while. I put my father in-law on my plan then I started getting these outragious bills for international PTT usage and for regular phone usage. Nextell and Sprint sell themselves as being one and the same on TV, but there not. they have different charging rates. We went to El Paso, Tx., where my wife used her Sprint phone without any problems and I had a H time getting a signal, then when I did on the U.S. side of the border, I got later got charged for international rates. I gave up on Nextell and went back to Spr...

A couple of Q's.

Does anyone know whether this is going to use a SIM card or just use the CDMA activation?

Nextel stores tend to carry Boost mobile and I was wondering how exactly these will be activated in the stores since both Nextel and Boost use a SIM card for activation.

SprintNextel hybrid phone poll

I want to poll everyone out there to see what y'all think. How many Nextel subscribers out there are willing to move to a hybrid phone if it had 800 mhz roaming included? The new hybrid phones have 1900 CDMA roaming ONLY.

So, does this mean... more of that dreaded "The Nextel subscriber you are trying to locate is currently off-planet"?

expressing angst

ever since the merger was announced i've been looking forward to being able to use nextel's ptt network without switching my contract to nextel...

i thought that these hybrid phones would allow me to do that, but i guess the exculsivity agreement that motorola has with nextel regarding iden chipsets is still in place, huh?

anyone have any clue when i'll be able to use a phone on my sprint contract to ptt with my gf's nextel?
