Just the Facts please...

I know this LG Scoop (Alltel) has been desired by big-time texters. That said, I want to know what kind of PHONE it is. Putting texting and everything else aside just for a moment, honestly, does it get great reception? Does it have good speaker volume, ringtones, voice quality?

If someone does not do alot of texting, is there any reason to get this phone?

Does this phone sync with PC

I've been looking at this phone on the usc website.

Can you sync the calendar on the phone with your PC calendar?

I'm still looking for a Smartphone without buying a data plan!

Thanks for your help!

Where's my video?

I've had this phone for less than a week now with US Cellular and am pretty happy with it. However, I can't seem to receive video messages. I know it's capable of it, but US Cellular doesn't support it. My brother has US Cellular as well, but a different older phone (Motorola). Why can't I get videos? Not even choppy ones... just a single image pops up.

Ok well lets see.
im getting the LG Scoop from Alltel and ive read lots and lots of peoples view about the phone and overall everyone loves it.
But my concerns about the phone is that, people say that the camera sucks or quits working and have to go buy a new phone.
And when you call someone they said that the reception isnt very clear and its hard to hear.
And that the phone keyboard is really flimsy.
But idk i think ill still get it..cause obviously only 2 or 3 people had problems and everyone else hasnt had problems yet.
Well umm If you downlod a song on your phone for the MP3 can u use one of the songs for a ringer?
well that all i have

Too Slow for Fast Texting?

I am very close to getting the LG Rumor to replace my almost 3 year old Samsung SPH A-800. I have wanted a new phone for awhile, but I don't like flip phones (I text too much) & I'm not interested in a Blackberry as I don't need work to be any more accessible than it is, so I've been hoping a phone like this would come along soon, before my old sliding phone completely died.

Every review I've seen has been pretty good, but I read one official one that concerned me a little. It said the keyboard couldn't keep up with fast texting, and letters would often be missed. Although I'm in my 30's, so not the typical age for text addicts, I've been avidly texting for 9 years, and the teenage kids of my co-workers say they've never seen anyone te...

I've recently ordered this phone but I haven't gotten it yet. I was curious, they say that it supports facebook and other social networks but nothing about MySpace. Can anyone tell me if it does or not?

Download Music from Digital Lounge

I need step by step instructions on how to download the 99 cent songs from the digital lounge to the phone. I have an unlimited data package on the phone, for 15.00 bucks. Do I need a memory card to be in the phone when I do this? Or is there any internal memory set aside for digital music. Thanks.
