New housings/battery cover available?

I've had the SMT 5600 for about 6 months now and I just had my first accidental drop. The battery cover got pretty scuffed up, as did the black piece that surrounds the camera. Any suggestions on how to get replacement parts or a new housing? Audiovox.com said I need to ship them the phone for an estimate, and I found the exact parts on ebay but the seller's photo shows a red streak on the pieces so I don't want to mess with that. Some guys on ebay even have all the phone pieces for $55 + $20 s/h but for that much I think I can deal with the scuffs.
Any suggestions would be great!
Thank you,
Steve

miniSD card capacity on this phone?

Hey, I read a review in PC Mag (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1674705 ,00.asp?p=2) that indicates this phone accepts miniSD cards up to 256MB in size. Is this true? I read somewhere else that the MPX220 would accept the 512MB miniSD cards. Given that they both have the same OS, I'm very surprised to hear that these two phones would be different. Can someone confirm what size miniSD card the 5600 will accept?

Thanks.

Where are the apps for this phone?

My daughter is leaving T-Mobile to get her hands on the SMT 5600 with Cingular. Does anybody know of a couple good places to download apps that seem well suited to this phone?

I have no idea how to personlize my phone for ringers. 3Gupload does not support this phone. This is not good. Evil or Very Mad Any help will be much appreciated.

Cingular discontinuing SMT5600

I have owned this phone twice and have had it stolen twice. After researching new phones on the market, I decided to go with the SMT5600 again. When I called them last week they told me that they had it. When I called them this week to order it they told me as of this week they had discontinued it and it was "oversold" and none were in the warehouse. I'm very disappointed.

Just thought I'd mention that since I haven't seen that mentioned on this website, and phonescoop says the phone is still active with Cingular, which it's not. I called back today to see if by any chance they found some (fat chance) or I had a bad phone rep or something...but no such luck.

I know I can purchase them somewhere else, but I have a better discount...

Answering screen keymap

I got a problem with the way the call answering screen is working on my 5600...

I store my phone in a case attached to my belt. But when the phone is ringing and i taking it off the case, the "reject" button is sometime accidentally pressed just because it its map to one of the softkey and those keys are not as flat than the buttons on numeric pad....

Even if I lock my keypad, those 2 softkeys are automatically unlocked when you receive a call.

Does anyone know a way to remap the "accept" and "reject" functionality on some other buttons ? Or does anyone know a way to keep the keypad locked, even when a call is coming in ?

Reception

I am having some reception issues when inside my place of employment. I laid a V551 next to my phone at different locations today, and the V551 would be maxed with bars, and my phone would be jumping up and down, but mostly staying down.

Internet Connection remains

1. It seems that any program I use that uses the internet "opens the G next my signal" remains open after I exit the app. If the "G" is still there next to my signal indicator dos that mean it has an open internet connection? How do I get this to stop?
2. How do you keep programs from staying "running" when you are done? It appears that most apps do not have 'exit' buttons, they are still running in the background when you exit them. I use the Task Manager to close them, but this is a pain.
Thanks,
Carl

Mobile Windows games?

Does anyone know of a good website to download MS windows mobile games?? I've found many games for the Pocket PC operating system but would assume they will not work with MS mobile? I've never really been in to phone games but since I just bought the 5600 I just want to check them out.

Office Files

How do you put office files, word, excel, on the SMT? What file do you put them in, how do you open, can you edit?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Voume on SmartPhones

I had the MPX 220 and returned it because it was buggy and the volume was so low you could barely hear conversations.

I then bought the Audiovox 5600. It is a much better phone. Sound is better but still low. Obviously I've adjusted the volume control on the left side of the phone, but it's still not load enough.

I'm beginning to wonder if it is a smartphone OS issue.

I would appreciate and thoughts or ideas on the subject. If someone has a software setting solution, I would be very happy.

Thanks,

Newer Phone and Time Zone Questions

Hi All!

I'm considering getting the SMT 5600 but I read in one of these threads that in a few days, a newer phone will be coming out. Is this true? If so, what phone is it and when will it be available? Should I wait?

Also, I believe I read on Amazon that the SMT 5600 does not automatically update when you travel thru time zones. This is not a big deal, but would be a nice feature.

Thanks in advance.

Assignable ringtones

Does anyone know if this phone will do assignable ringtones? I'd like to be able to assign different ringtones for different callers. I'm looking into buying this phone and it's a factor in my decision.
