BlackJack II GPS Question

Now, for those of you who have a BlackJack II, I have a question about the TeleNav program that is downloadable on the phone. Is there a monthly fee included when using TeleNav, or are you only charged when you do that upgrade. I don't want to use it if it's going to cost me extra money.....

When is the Samsing TOUCH PDA debuting on AT&T?

When is the Samsing TOUCH PDA debuting on AT&T?

AT&T is such a boring line up with their PDA smart phones and the Black Jack 2 is cute but its just a cosmertic upgrade compaired 2 the Black Jack 1.

Anyways i know Samsung has tons of Touch Screen PDA smart phones internationally but not in the US. Anyone have any idea if the 2nd quarter of 2008 will bring more innovative phones to AT&T?

I am debating on getting a Blackjack II but wanted to ask a few questions about it. My husband has a Blackberry Curve and there are all kinds of theme downloads and customization options available for it. What I am wondering is this true for the BlackJack II? Can you download themes for it as well? If so are they free or do you know how much they cost? Thanks in advance for the help!

problems installing apps...

So I've had this phone for about 5 days now and cannot get any apps I've downloaded even from the windows mobile website to install on my BJ II. It would install the Telenav that it already had the shortcut for on the phone. But when I follow the directions from the website it doesn't show up where its supposed too. I've tried putting it on compressed and uncompressed with no avail. Any ideas....?? Confused

CPU Speed?

It isn't listed anywhere? I've overclocked my Blackjack I to 252 mhz and was curious if switching to the Blackjack II would bring any improvements. Thanks!

Or if someone has the Blackjack II could you unlock your phone and install OMAPCLOCK on your phone. That will say what the CPU speed is.
