use Verizon's moto e815 for Ampd Mobile?
I'm using a Verizon's motorola E815, and I wonder if there's a way for me to use this phone and switch the service to Ampd Mobile? Customer Service from Ampd mobile says it can't be done because the E815 made for Ampd Mobile has a software that makes it compatible with their service, and that my Verizon phone won't work even if I have it unlocked.
Does anyone know any tricks? I like to keep the phone, but want to switch to Ampd Mobile and use their pay-as-you-go service. I rarely use more than 60 minutes/month, so it's a waste to pay for 450 minutes every month with Verizon :-(.
Thanks in advance.
sound and picture attachments
I have successfully e-mailed and downloaded sounds and pictures to my phone (E815) in the past. They are on it now, completely accessible. Lately, when I try to attach a sound or picture to an e-mail--through Hotmail--the window closes itself and nothing happens. I was able to get a couple messages sent to the phone but they cannot be downloaded. "Unable to download. Please try again later." I contacted V...

Saving text messages to a computer
I want to save a number of text messages on my phone to a computer file. What is the easiest way to do this? Is there some simple way to download these messages?
One thought I had was just to forward all the messages that I wanted to save to an e-mail account. But this brings up another question. For some of my messages, the phone will only let me forward them to another phone number and not to an e-mail address. Other messages can be forwarded to either an e-mail address or a phone number. Why is this? The messages that I cannot forward to e-mail have a text message indicator of an open envelope with what looks like a paper clip of the left of the envelope. (I would have guess...
Do I need the ultra or will the regular card work just as well? Or do I have to buy one over the other just because the other one wont work with the phone?
Recharging the battery while the phone is OFF
I love this phone. But Id like to keep it in good shape for that I think that is better if I charge the battery while the phone is off during the night, at least some times, is that correct?? Anyway the problem is that I turn it off, I plug the charger into the phone and the phone goes back on again by itself. It turns on when the charger is pluged too, if I turn it off with the charger it turns on again by itself. It is my phone haunted>>?? Some times it works but is anoying i have to try several times until it stays off and just charges the battery,
Proper way to recharge E815 battery?
My current phone hardly holds a charge, and I was wondering if there was a proper way to charge the E815 battery. I currently put my phone in the charger every night when I get home from work.
After charging the phone for the first time it is used, what time interval for charging it would be best to preserve its capacity to hold a charge - daily, only when needed, or what?
I'd like to retain the capacity of the battery at its peak.
Replacement Model Number
Anyway, does anyone have any inside tip on when an E815 replacement is coming and what cryptic model number it might have?
