Downloading new MIDlets..

I don't know about you, guys. But i've just got this phone and i've tried to download a customised MIDlet and the phone doesn't install the application on itself.
I'm trying to get some explanations about why it doesn't work but after sell the stuff, the company doesn't help us anymore.
I'm very disappointed with this phone. I think i will destroy this phone and ask my insurances to give me another model.

No message alert lights

This is the first phone I have had that doesn't show a light when a message comes in. It only rings so there is no way of knowing that a message has been received if you are away from the phone.
I find this very strange in a phone that is advertised as a text messaging phone.
It also doesn't show any light when charging or when it has been charged. You have to actually open the phone to see if it has been charged or not.
I'm going to try to exchange this phone.

Paranoid The AX490 is on RED ALERT. Not to be sold by any alltel retail stores or partners until further notice. The phone has problems with power cycling and other unmentionables.

Has anyone used their 490 with a bluetooth?

The main reason I purchased this phone was to use the bluetooth. I have tried 2 headsets, and each of them results in the person on the other end hearing an annoying echo of themselves. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, I was told that I may have had the volume up too high. I tried turning the volume down, this did cut down on the echo, but then I could barely hear the person.

Help with Rinsgter+

Hi there, I can't seem to connect to Rinster+, it always comes up with an error message. Is this a recurring problem, or is it just me?

Type of ringtone

Does the AX-490 have polyphonic ringtones or realtone ringtones? Thanks!

Keyboard layout :(

Confused That keypad looks annoying- no QWERTY layout- or anything resembling any type of keyboard layout, just the letters A-Z alphabetized. I think typing on that could be slow and cumbersome and take too much time to learn.
