over in the "Review: LG Fusic" discussion:

D-Pad is similar to scroll wheel.

The video states that the scroll wheel cannot be used like the iPod scroll wheel. If you spin your finger around the D-Pad you can use it to navigate outside display menus like the iPod can, scrolling songs ect.

Perfect for Two-Device professionals

Small and thin like a Razr, but still has tons of features. (especially after Sanyo dashed my hopes of a good phone with the Katana)

I carry an MM7400 which I am absolutely in love with, but I am tired of the stigma of people seeing two devices on my belt. (I wear dress slacks, and pretty thin... So a 7400 in my pocket is a bit unseemly. lol )

I'm picking this up today, so I'll post what I think about it.

I have a few questions for the FUSIC...

Does anyone know if or where you can purchase more faceplates in different colors?

How many GB can the FUSIC support up to? I was told a 2GB card, but as im reading more into it, it seems to be that it will only support a 1GB card. I would like to purchase the highest memory card it can saftley support.

Problems connecting with USB

When I first connected the phone to my pc via usb I heard the normal noise that windows makes, but it said that there was a problem installing and it may not work properly. So then I tried on the phone and I went to tools, connect with usb and when I do the phone just turns off then turns back on and it doesn't connect with the PC. Whats the problem?

Repeating alerts?

So far I really like this phone. I bought it for my daughter and it seems to do just about everything well. Using the FM transmitter is really slick in the car.

I can even browse the content on the phone via bluetooth from my Macintosh -- something I can't even do with my Treo 700p.

One thing I can't figure out: is there a way to make an audible alert repeat if a text message comes in and you don't notice it? On most phones you can have it alert you every few minutes until you clear the alert. I can't figure out how to do that here.

When will Costco carry this phone?

I was going to get the A900 until I saw the fusic. Costco has the A900 for $130 and any phone you buy there includes a leather case, ear bud, and car charger. So now I am wondering when they are going to carry the fusic.

The unOfficial First Fusic Review!

I just received the phone in the mail today. I was pretty excited when I opened the package. The phone is real nice, but the pictures can be a little misleading.
The click-wheel on the outside of the phone is made to look alot nicer in the pictures than it actually is. It is NOT as iPodish as it looks in those pictures, as the wheel is actually "bubbleish" for a better word, and does not perform like the iPod's click-wheel. Its not advertised that it would, but it would have been a cool feature Another upset was that you have to do a special setting on the phone every time you want to connect it to the computer as a USB flash drive, which I can see being very annoying. Also, the advertised "use as a modem" thing is gonna cost you $40 a...

FM Transmitter

Okay lets ne honest, most FM transmitters are not that great. I personally have used 2 or 3 and really couldnt stand them over an extended period of time. The transmitter on this phone works as advertised, of the 3 I have tried it is the best one. Again, keep in mind its an FM trasmitter its not some super duper wireless Bose sounding magic device. It works, it cool, and its the only one there is which means your cool if you own one.
