1)OBEX - bluetooth profile to transfer music/pics/ringtones
2)Video Recorder
3)Video Player - even with memory card inserted does not play
4)sending MMS - will not send multi-media messages, unknown if it can recieve them

Plan requires 30 data pkg on ATT, GPS basic is free but after 60 days the premium is $6 per month.
