WMA Transfer

Sorry for the newbie question, but do you HAVE to use the Music Essentials kit software and cable to transfer music to the phone? I tried clicking and dragging WMAs into my songs folder on the phone..but it kept saying it could not play. If I cant transfer my existing music to the phone, I might as well not have it. Thanks

2GB Sandisk MicroSD card

Maybe this is old news, but I just noticed Amazon is selling the 2GB MicroSD card for $30. Wow - I paid $90 at a Verizon store for mine plus around $20 for the USB adapter. It's the best thing I ever got for this phone.

FYI - Amazon also has the card with adapter for $44. Save your money and avoid those thieves at Verizon...

Mobile IM Help

I just bought this phone, and its amazing. The one problem I am having is that I signed into mobile IM this afternoon, and now, despite the fact that I am signed off from aim on my phone, I keep getting the messages there. I am afraid its eating my text messages.

On my last phone, vx8100, this would only happen when was explicitly signed into aim. I specifically went back onto aim and clicked "sign off and exit" but no luck, I still keep getting the notifications each time someone sends me an im.

What can I do to turn this feature off?

Thanks for your help
