S710a, Modem via MMODE

All-
Just purchased the S710a; I am on the ATT GSM Side- I added the MMODE Unlimited Plan for 24.99/month. So far- I find it sucks: too slow and not sure if this is phone or gprs or both.

My question is this: can I use this phone and mmode plan as a modem? Or do I need to be on the Cingular side with an EDGE plan? The Cingular Rep told me I would have to switch to Cingular side with an EDGE plan.

What do you think? I am not so far impressed with GPRS/MMode.

Thanks

Bluetooth connection with a SLVR

I got my buddies SLVR L7 here and he can bluetooth me pictures and songs.... I can send him songs, but whenever I try to send him a PICTURE, it just freezes and wont even give him the "accept" option. THEN I tried sending pics to my Nokia 6682 from the S710a and THAT worked. THEN I sent the SAME PICTURE to the SLVR from the 6682 and THAT WORKED! Why does the 6682 work to and from both, both I cant SEND PICTURES from S710a to SLVR? I mean I could see if the bluetooth wasnt compatible at all, but the L7 sends TO mine, AND receives SONGS from mine....but not pics... Confused Any help here would be seriously appreciated. Thanks!!!

BUT, when I put the card back into my phone the stuff doesnt show up anywhere. Confused Can someone tell me if I'm missing something here? I took pictures with my phone and put the card into my PC, renamed it, and when I put it back in the phone...GONE. Shocked Any info would be a great help....Thanks!

scrambled screen? help.

ok so i really love this phone and i dont want to have to give it up especially since the phone is discontinued and ill get the new version which isnt as good. but recently my screen with become really scrambled like a stolen cable tv channel. then when you click a menu or something the scrambledness splits into a vertical half of the screen and everything on the other half goes pink and hazy. it slants. really weird. and it eventually goes back to normal however for like 6 hours after the phone goes back to normal the clock sticks at 1200 and you cant change it. and when you call people it will show it in the last dialed at the time. then when the clock starts working again every thing you did when it wasnt working is gone. so if you...

Could someone tell me how I can go about upgrading the firmware on s710a? I would like to do it myself so,

Memory Stick Micro???

I just read on the front page of Phone Scoop that Sony is expected to release a new memory stick called the "Memory Stick Micro".

After reading the article, it failed to mention that it would be compatible with the memory stick duo formats, which is currently topped off at 128MB's.

If this new memory stick is compatible with the "duo" formats then this would explain why Sony hasn't put any funding into developing a higher capacity memory stick duo card. This would be good news for us who want more than the 128MB's currently available for the S710a.

I really hope that Sony gets this right, Opinions anyone?

confused about unlocking s710a

I just recently found a cingular branded ericsson s710a. I currently have cingular and thought that I would try to put in my sim card and use the phone. After inserting my sim card the phone asks for a phone lock code. Can anyone tell me if I can reset that or do I have to order a data cable and have that done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Memory Stick DUO

Quick Question:

I know the s710a uses the Memory Stick Duo format. According to Sony, the biggest Duo card available is 128Mb. Can you use a Memory Stick PRO Duo with this phone? If so, you'd be able to upgrade to a 512Mb card. Any info. would be helpful and much appreciated.

Text Message Sounds

I just got my phone today and want to change the text message sound. I put a bunch of mp3s on my phone, some of which are about 1 second long, intended for text message sounds. When i go to change the ringtone they are all there, but when i go to change the text message sound there are only about 7 default sounds and no options for finding more on the phone. When i browse the phone with bluetooth there is no option for ringtones, just a sounds folder. It is that folder that the ringtone chooser opens up. Any suggestions for putting on custom text message sounds?
