Bluetooth and Sprint Music

After reading up on the new unlimited plans, I'm wondering...

Would I be able to hear the music from PowerVision through my stereo bluetooth headphones or would it just come out the speakers?

Stereo speakers are backward!

LOL. I copied a channel test file to my phone and played it, and the left channel was coming out of the right speaker, and vice versa. Even when you open and close the flip, the speakers do not switch. The only way to listen to music and have the left and right channels be correct is to open the flip and turn the phone around so you are looking at the camera and the external lcd both. Or I guess you could close the flip and turn the phone upside down!

In other news, this also confirms that the M1 speakers ARE INFACT stereo, and not just mono out of two speakers. As if anyone could tell with the speakers so close together though.

In conclusion...LMAO Sanyo.

Disable music shop from front keypad?

I hate locking keys (dont ask, I just always have and always will) and quite often I take my phone out my pocket to see 'Application Running' and open it to see my phone ask me if I want to connect to the music shop. I dont want to remove the music shop, nor do I especially dislike it; I just dont use it. Is there anyway I can remove this option from the menu on the front keypad? Or at least set it to default to media player when I hit play? Its just annoying when I try to stealthily check the time in class if I have to open my phone and hit end to see it.

Text Messages - Please help - any info is better than none....

I am considering buying this phone; however, I send and receive a lot of text messages (3,000 or more a month). I read earlier in the forum that you can only see the last 10 text messages sent.

* Is that right - you can only see the last 10 texts that you sent?
* How many text messages can you select at the same time?
* Also, has anyone else ever gone from a blackberry or pda (keyboard) to this phone and how does it compare in terms of speed to type a message?
* Can you sync your phone to your computer so you won't lose your contacts if something happens to your phone?

m1 Internet Problems

hey guys,
I just picked up an m1 to replace my sanyo 8400. The internet is really slow on this thing.. my 8400 was twice as fast. Is there any kind of preference I'm not setting right? or maybe it's just the network.

Thanks for any input!

Automatic Internet connection

I recently found out the the M1 automatically connects to the internet and when you try to update the phone, you WILL be charged for internet usage. I've been arguing with Sprint about this issue for several months, and just got it fixed. I ended up getting a $110.00 refund to my account. So if any one is having the same problems, you'll have to put up an IP blocker and also set the phone to disable the Vision system. My phone still tries to connect as I keep getting either an Error message or "Please check your Vision Status" message.
Just a little something to let you know.

I don't want to sound like a moron, but

the headphones that came with my phone don't fit in the headphone jack. Am I stupid? Is there another place I should be plugging them in? I've tried every hole and opening on the phone, lol.
