Wild Card: The Good and Bad

The good: I love the Wild Card's built-in keyboard. It's larger and easier to use than the Switch_Back's. I also love the camera. I think it takes higher quality shots than the Switch_Back. The redesigned external display is much easier on the eyes than the Switch_Back's. I also love how the number buttons on the external keypad now line up properly. The firmware also seems to be improved. I have been able to send text messages without the phone restting itself (knock on wood). The alert reminder actually works now. The phone plays all games smoothly.

The bad: The vibrator is anemic and difficult to feel unless you're actually holding the phone. Although I think the internal speaker is somewhat improved over the Switch_Back's, it is still...

Does Anyone Have the Serial Cables Yet

Hey let me know when you get the serial cables and where you get them from. I'm sure you are able to add music to the phone more easier when those things come out. Repsond to this bulleting. Thanks. Phone is really good so far. Not all the features work yet but they are upgrading every week.

No! Not an Exact Replica of the enV LG-VX9900! Right?

No! This couldn't possibly be a shameless attempt at imitating Verizon's enV, right?????? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Oh man, when you're imitated time and time again, that's when you know you're doing something right! Go Verizon!

Any word on a carrier?

It looks like something that Cricket, Metro or Virgin would pick up.

Kyocera Lingo M1000

Okay I got the phone the first day it was put out on the market. I love the full keyboard phones. I now have 3 fully functional keyboard phones of different brands of course. Any questions you have about the Lingo M1000 shoot them at me. I will do my best to answer. So far I'm loving the phone. Still haven't figured all the features out yet but I'm working on it. Drooling

My view

Just some things I want to say...

It looks gaudy, it's got too much gold color and the buttons look like diamonds.

The hinge looks huge. Why is it so big?

I still don't understand why they put the navigation ring in the middle of the QWERTY.

It looks more solid than the Strobe.

Last-minute corrections

If you checked out the specs when it first went up an hour ago, I just made some corrections:

The name is Lingo.

It holds 500 contacts.

There will not be a version with EVDO (totally my mistake - sorry!)
